Hemp Oil versus CBD Oil
Updated: May 6, 2022
Hemp oil is one of the most commonly searched phrases by folks looking for CBD, but there is a very important distinction between hemp oil and CBD. Hemp oil – pressed from hemp seeds – has high nutritional value and little to no CBD; you’ll likely find it in the vegetable oil section of your local grocery store. While hemp seed oil can deliver the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins, it does not contain beneficial amounts of CBD.
A great nutritional addition to home cooking, salad dressings, and smoothies, hemp seed oil is also a popular choice for a carrier oil in CBD tinctures and skin care formulas. But not all carrier oils are created equal.
When searching for quality CBD products, it is very important that the product label clearly shows the total milligrams of CBD and/or other cannabinoids. On the product’s ingredient list, CBD may be listed as CBD oil, cannabidiol, hemp extract, hemp extract (aerial parts), or phytocannabinoids. Be sure that the manufacturer can provide lab test results, known as a Certificate of Analysis (COA), from an independent laboratory to support the label claims. If the terms CBD and mg (milligrams) are missing from the label, it is likely that the product does not contain CBD.
EUPHORA products clearly display total cannabinoids in milligrams front and center of each label so you know exactly what you’re paying for when you shop with us. CBD is written in our ingredients list as phytocannabinoids; because EUPHORA uses full spectrum extracts to promote the Entourage Effect, trace amounts of other beneficial cannabinoids (such as CBN, CBG, CBC, and CBDV) are also present in our formulas, in addition to the milligram amount listed on the front labels. COAs for each of our batches are uploaded to our website on the COAs page so you can rest assured that our label claims are verified.
