One of the biggest sources of confusion among consumers relates to the difference between hemp seed oil and CBD oil.
Hemp seed oil contains no CBD. Many companies actually use hemp seed oil in their products, which confuses the end user. People often think they are buying a product containing CBD when in reality they’re not.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is found in the extract of the hemp flower.
This extract can be used in full spectrum products “as is,” or it can be refined down to a pure CBD isolate. Full spectrum CBD oil contains other trace cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN, CBC, as well as fats, proteins, lipids, flavonoids and terpenes. For both full spectrum oil and isolate, the tincture is made by diluting the CBD with a carrier oil such as MCT.
