CBD – Cannabis Oil vs Hemp Oil?
Before you embark on buying a cannabis oil for its CBD content you need to understand what you are getting, which actually is answered by knowing its origins.
To understand this you simply need to understand the plant in a little more detail.
‘Note, you do not need a PhD or masterful knowledge in the sciences to fathom this out so please please, read on’.
The Cannabis Plant
Cannabis is the genus of the plant. Thus meaning there are lots of varieties of cannabis, hemp being one of them – also known as Cannabis Sativa L. There are others too such as Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica
What differences are there?
Well in short, the Cannabis Sativa L strain of plant usually contains less than 0.3% of THC whilst other Cannabis Sativa and Indica strains tend to hold a much higher percentage of THC content; usually above 15% THC – THC being the psychoactive compound which causes the ‘high’ affect associated with smoking cannabis.
Developments in cross breeding are allowing master growers to cultivate strains bespoke to requirements so there are cannabis sativa and indica strains which now hold lower than previous levels of THC.
Cannabis (Hemp) Seed Oil
Many people who are new to cannabis extracts may often be mislead in to purchasing Cannabis Sativa L (Hemp) Seed Oil. Tests have shown that there are no cannabinoids present in the seeds of the hemp plant. Hemp Oil is most commonly referred to as a Superfood, due to the high levels of Omegas, Vitamins, and other Nutrients.
So, by purchasing Hemp Seed Oil you are not getting any cannabinoids – all be it active or inactive.
All Cannaflo full spectrum products use Cannabis Oil with less than 0.2% of THC – the legal UK limit on THC content in Cannabis Extracts.
So the actual question you need to ask yourself before buying CBD Oil is ‘Are you buying Cannabis Oil or Hemp Seed Oil?’
