The Short Answer is: YES! Everything Hemp is one of the highest rated plants in existence. Every part of the plant: seeds, flowers, leaves and stalks have properties for thousands of uses.

The seeds are rich in protein and Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids. These compounds are extremely good in our diet as our body needs them and cannot produce them.

Hemp Seed Oil is relatively inexpensive and it can be bought in large containers. It has an unpleasant metallic taste and smell, it’s not good for frying as it burns and turns bad at hot temperatures. It can be consumed as salad flavourings, in capsules or used in beauty products.

 

Hemp Oil normally refers to Hemp Seed OIl HSO. As a food ingredient HSO is healthier than butter, animal fat and an alternative to fish as a source of Omega3 and Omega6 fatty acids.

Hemp Seed Oil has many health benefits and many experts recommend adding it into our diet. Hemp Seed Oil helps to meet the daily recommended intake of  6-8 grams of fatty acids which is the equivalent of 2 tea spoons a day.

 

CBD oil on the other hand is an extract obtained from the flowers/buds of the Industrial Hemp. No seed or stalk are used in the extraction process of CBD. The CBD Oil (Cannabidiol) can be extracted using distillation ( same as essential oils) or CO2 Supercritical Extraction: a new technology of extracting the oils using high pressure CO2.

CBD oil can be Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum or Isolate. This classification is based on the presence of other chemical compounds extracted from the buds of the industrial hemp plant.

 

 

CBD Oil is usually expensive and can be purchased in small 10ml-60ml bottles typically mixed with a carrier oil (HSO, olive oil or coconut oil).

 

 

 

CBD doesn’t have a daily recommended dose. Instead it is recommended you should not exceed 40-50mg a day. It must be added that you should consult a doctor before taking CBD if you have severe health concerns, history of heart disease or pregnant.
