Do Hemp Seeds Contain CBD?

Updated: Feb 19, 2020

Do Hemp Seeds Contain CBD?

It is easy for new CBD users to confuse hemp seed oil with CBD hemp oil. This is due in part to companies being intentional with their misleading product listing. Instead of listing the truth about their product they are using certain terms to push and sell their products, especially through Amazon's marketplace where CBD is currently banned. There are major differences between these two oils. They are different in many aspects from where they are derived, their extraction method, their benefits, to their effects.

What is CBD

CBD is one of several natural chemical compounds found in the hemp plant that promotes wellness without any psychoactive effect. This compound's scientific name is "cannabinoid". Cannabinoids are actually molecules that are responsible for giving the hemp plant most of its medicinal properties. CBD is non-intoxicating. It promotes calmness in the body and works with the endocannabinoid system to create homeostasis, which is balance, in the body.

What Is Hemp Seed Oil

Hemp seed oil is an oil that is extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant, using a cold-press extraction method. This is the same basic extraction used to produce natural oils from a variety of different seeds. Hemp seed oil is rich in fatty acids, antioxidants, and some minerals, vitamins and fiber. Hemp seed oil is a byproduct of the hemp plant by way of the seeds and is NOT the same as the oils made from the flower, leaves, and stalk of the plant. Hemp seed oil is merely a superfood with nutritional value and can also be used on your skin and in your hair.

CBD vs Hemp Seed Oil

As people discover hemp and its many benefits, CBD and hemp seed oil has grown in popularity. Both CBD and hemp seed oils are absolutely wellness oils. However, hemp seed oil will not give you the benefits of CBD oil. The market is so saturated with misinformation and brands now, it makes it a little difficult for consumers to make a favorable and educated purchase because companies are deceptively listing hemp seed oil as "cannabis Sativa oil".

CBD oil is extracted from the flower, leaves, and stalk of the hemp plant. This is where the CBD is rich in the hemp plant. As previously stated, hemp seed oil is extracted from the seeds where the proteins and fatty acids are abundant.

CBD Usage Benefits vs Hemp Seed Oil Usage Benefits

As stated before, hemp seed oil has some good qualities. When it comes to hemp seed oil being used in beauty and skin products, it has a reputation of moisturizing and hydrating the skin, not clogging your pores and anti-inflammatory properties. What is known about CBD as it relates to beauty and skincare is that it too has these attributes but its anti-inflammatory properties are so much more powerful, it helps to relieve certain skin conditions such as psoriasis, acne, eczema, and rashes. People with sensitive skin can also replace their lotion with CBD beauty products.

Hemp seed oil has culinary applications as well. In recipes, it is recognized for its fatty acids and protein. It adds a flavorful finish to soups and salads but does not deliver many benefits beyond its fatty acid and protein capabilities.

On the other hand, when CBD is ingested, it is a game-changer for your health and wellness journey. Whether it is put into your food and drink or is taken as an edible or sublingual form, it interacts with your endocannabinoid system to combat and correct issues that degrade your health. It delivers the medicinal and therapeutic benefits that people desire.

CBD vs Hemp Seed Oil Chart

Hemp flowers, leaves, and stalk are naturally abundant in CBD and are ideal for making CBD products. However, hemp seed lacks any sustainable levels of cannabinoids. Hemp seeds only contain trace amounts of CBD. Typically less than 25 parts per million(PPM). Therefore, hemp seed oil is unfeasible as a CBD product because of its marginal quantity of CBD per dry weight and is considered as having no CBD.

CBD Oil Vs. Hempseed Oil

In any case, CBD oil and hemp seed oil are both great products and both serve a purpose as long as you know what you buying. Hemp seed oil is nutritious but it is not an adequate source if you are looking for the balancing properties of CBD. It is up to you to educate yourself about the two and know that hemp seed oil will not provide the same effects as broad-spectrum CBD. On the other hand, it is time for brands to be transparent with consumers and make it apparent that not all hemp products are the same and not all hemp products have CBD.
