CBD vs Hemp Extract vs Hemp Seed Oil: Know What You Buy

CBD vs Hemp Extract vs Hemp Seed Oil…  Know what you are buying Or More Importantly, What you are NOT Buying!

As the FDA continues to provide guidance in the fast-growing, and ever-changing CBD landscape post the legalization of Industrial Hemp per the Farm Bill Act of 2018, many consumers are rightfully confused about what they are purchasing when they begin to explore the benefits of CBD as a health and Wellness option.

 

First Let’s discuss what CBD is.

CBD stands for cannabidiol, and it is one of over 113 cannabinoids produced by the cannabis Sativa plant.  The Cannabis sativa plant has two common varieties, Marijuana, and Hemp. The Hemp plant is commonly used in the manufacture of CBD products as it has significantly lower levels of THC, making it the easier species of Cannabis sativa to bring below the Farm Bill Act requirement of .3% THC to be sold legally in the United States.  CBD interacts directly with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) already present in our bodies and, CBD helps the ECS to maintain a healthy internal balance and assists with regulating a number of critical bodily functions. Recent scientific research has indicated that CBD may provide numerous health benefits.

What is Hemp?

Hemp is a strain of the Cannabis Sativa Plant.  The Cannabis Sativa plant has two species, Marijuana and Hemp.  Although marijuana and hemp are two different plants, they are very similar, and both have medicinal value.  Additionally, the two plants look alike and smell alike, however, the main difference is the levels of THC in each plant.  Marijuana has high levels of THC, however, Hemp, although it also contains THC, it is at significantly lower levels. THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the psychoactive ingredient commonly present in marijuana in high levels.  THC is also the ingredient that is known to create the psychoactive effects many know as a “high” or “stoned.”

For this reason, CBD oil is most commonly derived from the Hemp plant.  Since The Farm bill Act of 2018 requires that CBD oil contains less than .3% THC level in order for it to be legal and since Hemp has inherently lower levels of THC to begin with, it is easier to reduce the Hemp plant to .3% versus using marijuana.  Therefore CBD oil from Hemp provides many of the benefits of Marijuana without any of the negative psychoactive side effects of marijuana. In the case of Palm Organix™, we take the process one step further and remove all the THC which results in a premium ZERO THC Broad Spectrum CBD oil.

How Can CBD Benefit Me?

Premium, High-Quality CBD products are being sought to achieve greater health and overall well-being. It is believed because of how they interact with the body’s CB1 and CB2 receptors. CBD may be helpful in providing a much-needed relief from any number of ailments that can keep us from looking, functioning and feeling our best, including:

  1. Promoting Tranquility
  2. Supporting a good night’s sleep
  3. Supporting muscle and joint function
  4. Supporting Focus
  5. Promoting healthy skin
  6. Support internal balance
  7. Supporting a relaxed mood

Different Types of CBD?

There are 3 types of CBD available in the market today:

  1. Broad Spectrum CBD is all the beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids contained in the Hemp plant except for THC.  THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the psychoactive ingredient predominantly found in the marijuana plant that is responsible for the feeling of being “high,” which users experience.  This means the consumer of Broad Spectrum CBD manufactured from the Hemp plant will have all the benefits of CBD including the Terpenes and Flavonoids without any of the Negative psychoactive negative side effects of THC including “high”.
  2. Full Spectrum CBD is very similar to Broad Spectrum CBD except it DOES contain THC.  The amount of THC in this type of CBD can be as much as .3% and still be legally sold in all 50 states.
  3. Isolate CBD is a pure crystalline powder that contains 99% pure CBD.  Isolate CBD contains none of the beneficial terpenes and flavonoids that are found in both Broad Spectrum and Full Spectrum.

Many CBD users for any number of personal reasons, including religious beliefs, work commitments, family responsibilities, operating a car, or sports do not wish to consume THC.  This is why many experts in the CBD business and in the medical community strongly believe that Broad Spectrum CBD is the best choice of CBD available in the marketplace for improved health and wellness.

 

What Is Hemp Extract?

Hemp Extract is all the components of the Hemp plant.  In recent months, many CBD companies have changed their labels from CBD to Hemp Extract. In some cases, the Hemp Extract may contain THC, and in other cases, it may be a zero THC product.  However, for the consumer, it is important to know what exactly is the percentage breakdown of CBD to Hemp Extract in the Tincture, Softgel, or Topical you are purchasing.

In many instances, the percentage of actual CBD in Hemp Extract is very low, and for this reason, the retailer has chosen to intentionally label their product Hemp Extract rather than label it CBD.  You are likely asking yourself why is this the case?

The main reason retailers choose to label their product Hemp Extract is for the following two reasons:

  1. The amount of CBD in the Hemp Extract bottle is extremely low.
  2. They are able to list a higher milligram count for Hemp Extract than for CBD.

For example, let’s take two tincture bottles, a broad spectrum CBD tincture bottle sold by Palm Organix™ labeled 900mg Premium CBD and compare that to a bottle labeled 1000mg Hemp Extract from a different supplier.

Palm Organix™ 1000mg Premium CBD:

  • Palm Organix™ 1000mg Premium CBD Tincture contains 1000mg of CBD and which and also Terpenes and Flavonoids.
  • Competitors 1000mg Hemp Extract:  Many of these bottles sold and labeled as 1000mg of Hemp Extract only contain 500-600mg of CBD and the rest is Hemp Extract.

hemp vs cbd

So you ask yourself why do they label it Hemp Extract and not CBD? The answer is if they were to label their product CBD, they would have to list the actual amount of CBD in the tincture. In most cases they do not want to disclose the amount of CBD and keeping a high milligram count on the bottle enables them to sell their product at a higher price point.  Furthermore, this labeling is intentionally designed to make the user believe they are receiving 1000mg of CBD when in fact they may likely only be receiving 500mg of CBD and the other 500mg is “Hemp Extract.”

The easiest way to find the amount of CBD in any bottle labeled Hemp Extract is to check the Certificates of Quality Assurance and the Third Party Lab results.  These tests should indicate the amount of CBD in the oil that is in the product, not just the amount of Hemp Extract.

What Is Hemp Seed Oil?

Hemp seed oil is nothing more than the oil squeezed from the seeds of the Hemp Plant. The beneficial compounds of the Hemp plant are found in the flowers, stalks, and stems of the plant, not the seeds.  This is virtually identical to how olive oil or grapeseed oil is produced. Hemp seed oil has little to no CBD or other beneficial Terpenes and offers little to no medicinal benefit to the user. In fact, Hemp seed oil has been sold for decades at grocery stores and gourmet food stores for cooking.

Are Retailers of Hemp Seed Oil Intentionally Misleading Consumers?

You may be asking yourself, I see Hemp Seed oil advertised on Amazon with green leaves that look like Hemp or Marijuana on their labels; Isn’t that the same as Broad Spectrum CBD or Hemp Extract?  The answer is no, they are not the same! And the reason why is very clear; Amazon does not permit the sale of CBD or Hemp Extract on their platform at this time. What is commonly taking place is there are companies selling Hemp Seed Oil intentionally trying to mislead the consumer into thinking they are purchasing CBD or Hemp Extract.

It is important to know what you are buying, and just as important to know what you are not buying.  Furthermore, you will notice that premium sellers of Broad Spectrum CBD, like Palm Organix™, are not selling their products on Amazon.  This is not because they would not like to sell on Amazon, it is because they are not permitted by Amazon to sell CBD on their platform.

The Hemp plant is commonly used in the manufacture of CBD products as it has significantly lower levels of THC, making it the easier species of Cannabis sativa to bring below the Farm Bill Act requirement of .3% THC to be sold legally in the United States.

CBD interacts directly with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) already present in our bodies and, CBD helps the ECS to maintain a healthy internal balance and assists with regulating a number of critical bodily functions. Recent scientific research has indicated that CBD provides numerous health benefits.

Cannabidiol (more commonly known as CBD) is an all-natural, non-addictive supplement that is safe to take long-term for numerous health and wellness goals. CBD enhances our health by interacting with the endocannabinoid (ECS) system that is already present in our bodies. That system is responsible for maintaining the internal balance of our bodies, and CBD interacts with the receptors of the ECS system to help boost its functioning and, in turn, our overall health. Palm Organix™ CBD oil is best used as a supplement, and is not designed as a cure or treatment for any ailment.

Per the Agricultural Improvement act of 2018, more commonly referred to as the Farm Bill Act of 2018, CBD products containing less than .3% THC are legal in all 50 states. The Farm Bill Act descheduled some cannabis products from the Controlled Substances Act for the first time in early 2019. Included in the list is Industrial Hemp, the strain of Cannabis that CBD is commonly made from, so long as the THC level in CBD does not exceed .3% THC. Palm Organix™ Product, and our entire line of CBD products contain Zero THC so Palm Organix™ greatly exceeds the Farm Bill Act of 2018 requirements.

No. THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that is primarily responsible for the feeling of being “high,” which users experience. While CBD and marijuana are both from the cannabis plant, there is actually a hemp variety of the cannabis plant and a marijuana variety. CBD is sourced from the hemp plant, which is high in cannabinoids but much lower in THC than the marijuana plant.

No. You will not fail a drug test screening for THC when using Palm Organix™ as our entire line of CBD products does not contain any THC whatsoever. Palm Organix™ lab tests twice to ensure this and our lab reports support ZERO THC. Other CBD brands or Hemp Extract products that contain .3% THC may show up on a screening test for THC. If your employer or sports team or government agency is testing you for THC, it is highly recommended to only use a ZERO THC Brand like Palm Organix™.

Hemp Extract is all the components of the Hemp plant. In recent months, many CBD companies have changed their labels from CBD to Hemp Extract. In some cases, the Hemp Extract may contain THC, and in other cases, it may be a zero THC product. However, for the consumer, it is important to know what exactly is the percentage breakdown of CBD to Hemp Extract in the Tincture, Softgel, or Topical you are purchasing. May companies with low CBD levels call their products Hemp Extract as they do not contain very much CBD.

The answer is if they were to label their product CBD, they would have to list the actual amount of CBD in the tincture. In most cases they do not want to disclose the amount of CBD and keeping a high milligram count on the bottle enables them to sell their product at a higher price point. Furthermore, this labeling is intentionally designed to make the user believe they are receiving 1000mg of CBD when in fact they may likely only be receiving 500mg of CBD and the other 500mg is “Hemp Extract.”

If the product you are taking has .3% of THC, even though this is considered to be trace amounts of THC, it may show up on a drug screening test if taken daily in large quantities.

Hemp seed oil is nothing more than the oil squeezed from the seeds of the Hemp Plant. The beneficial compounds of the Hemp plant are found in the flowers, stalks, and stems of the plant, not the seeds.

Hemp seed oil has little to no CBD or other beneficial Terpenes and offers little to no medicinal benefit to the user. In fact, Hemp seed oil has been sold for decades at grocery stores and gourmet food stores for cooking.

Amazon does not permit CBD or Hemp Extract to be sold on their platform. If you are buying Hemp Seed Oil on Amazon, you are receiving no medical value, and are likely being tricked into thinking you are buying CBD or Hemp Extract disguised as CBD.

When shopping for pure high quality CBD oil or Hemp Extract, it is important to purchase you products from a reputable source like Palm Organix™.
