In the United Kingdom, about 11% of adults between 25 to 49 years of age have, at one time or another, used products containing CBD. Products like oils, balms and CDB capsules have become popular even among residents aged 18 to 24 years old. These products do not cause psychoactive effects and are practically legal to sell and use.
However, there are certain brands riding on the popularity of Cannabidiol products in order to gain more profit, but in doing so will falsely claim that the hemp seed oil they are selling contain CBD oil. Some might think that they are just the same products since both come from the Cannabis Plant. They are mistaken though as there are significant differences between hemp oil and CBD oil.
One major difference is the extraction method. Hemp oil is produced through cold-pressing Cannabis seeds, similar to how oil is extracted from sunflower or olives. The genuine oils sold by a reputable CBD oil shop however, is extracted using a more complicated method through CO2 or solvent-based extraction. Such methods are used to ensure potency and make them free from toxins.
That is why it is important not to mix up plain hemp oil thinking that it is genuine CBD oil, otherwise you won’t get the full benefits from the Cannabidiol content of these products. An infographic from Love CBD provides a thorough examination of the differences between hemp oil and CBD oil – so you’ll learn how you would get the real deal.
