In-depth CBD Article: Hemp Oil Mythology Part 1. Definitive and Instructive

Groovy Hemp Company In-depth CBD Article, Hemp Oil Mythology Part 1

This is a question people never ask but should: What’s the Difference Between Hemp Seed Oil and Hemp Oil Extract? Hemp Oil Mythology Part 1 will focus on answering that question.

Groovy Hemp Company will give you some background information so you can better understand what some of these words mean.

Life science people hate to admit it, but they adore large, complicated words, like phytocannabinoids. Normally I’m not especially impressed by big scientific-sounding words but this one has huge importance. 

In Hemp Oil Mythology Part 1 we want to help you expand your understanding of Hemp-based products.

When you talk about Hemp or CBD, or CBG, it’s really important to have a good working understanding of phytocannabinoids.

Phytocannabinoids are natural chemical compounds found in Hemp plants. Phyto means derived from plants.

Groovy Hemp Company in-depth articles provide information on Organic, CBD Oil products along with other interesting subjects. This includes Hemp Oil Mythology Part 1.

Phytocannabinoids from the hemp plant include CBD, CBG, CBN, THC, and various others found in extremely small amounts.

Terpenes are another completely different group of organic compounds also found in hemp. Terpenes are NOT considered cannabinoids. However, they’re also very important.

Please refer to the In-depth articles on Terpenes for more information:

If you look at a picture of a hemp plant, like almost every other plant found on the planet, you’ll see the stalk coming out of the ground.

As you go up the stalk towards the sky, you’ll see some leaves and you’ll also see structures that look something like the marijuana you’d buy in bulk.

These are flowers and you’re only going to find them on female hemp plants. As a matter of fact, growers prefer harvesting cannabinoids from unfertilized female hemp plants because they produce more cannabinoids and terpenes.

Leaves and flowers are sometimes referred to as “aerial parts”. Why? because they’re up in the air, as opposed to being at ground level or below. Most of the cannabinoids found in hemp are in the flowers. You’ll find some cannabinoids in leaves, but not a lot. 

Back in the 20th century and to some degree today, people would use the term “bud” instead of flowers. In the Hemp/CBD/Marijuana world flowers and bud are the exact same thing.

Manufacturers process Hemp Oil Extract from Hemp flowers. The terms Hemp Extract, Hemp Oil, and Hemp Oil Extract are interchangeable. They all refer to the basic ingredient for the vast family of products processed from Hemp flowers.

One of these phytocannabinoids is cannabidiol, also known as CBD, which is being studied extensively for its beneficial properties. The next time you put some CBD tincture under your tongue, or, ingest a CBD Gummie, or swallow a Softgel understand that its main ingredient is cannabidiol.

Now that we have some background information to work from let’s refocus on Hemp Oil Mythology Part 1 and return to the main issue. What’s the Difference Between Hemp Oil Extract and Hemp Seed Oil? This one’s a lot simpler than you would think.

The following are a few key points in Hemp Oil Mythology Part 1 that explain a lot. As an aside, it drives me insane when people refer to Hemp Seed Oil as Hemp Oil Extract. Hemp Seed Oil is very different than Hemp Oil Extract. It’s extremely important to understand the difference.

Although hemp seed oil is beneficial, it isn’t the same as Hemp Oil Extract. Hemp Seed Oil contains minimal cannabinoids, almost next to zero cannabinoids.

If you buy Hemp Seed Oil and think you’re buying a Hemp Oil Extract product containing a relatively high concentration of cannabinoids, you’re going to be very disappointed.

In Hemp Oil Mythology Part 1 we are happy to point out that the above doesn’t mean that Hemp Seed Oil has no value or even next to no value. In fact, it has real nutritional value.

Hemp Seed Oil is a household product you can find with minimal effort at many supermarkets or big boxes. You can even find hemp seed oil products at your local Walmart.

It’s often presented as a “superfood” because, like salmon, it’s rich in fatty acids like omega-3s, which may help improve cardiovascular health.

That of course is a whole other discussion not meant for Hemp Oil Mythology Part 1. It’s safe to say it’s meant for an entirely different type of publication.

Some Hemp Seed Oil products are very useful for skin care. In various CBD topical or beauty and skincare products, Hemp Seed Oil is used as a base. Hemp Seed Oil will not clog pores and has multiple healthy ingredients for your skin including the above-mentioned omega fatty acids.

You can also cook with Hemp Seed Oil and it can also be used as a salad dressing. I even saw it listed as an ingredient in granola last week. At first, I was surprised, but not so surprised when I thought about it.

In Hemp Oil Mythology Part 1 we have to mention that unfortunately, Hemp Seed Oil is not useful for pain relief, or reducing inflammation and/or, anxiety. There aren’t even close to enough cannabinoids in it to even think about managing those issues.
