Hemp Oil vs. CBD Oil: What’s in a Name?
Every day, more people are experiencing the health enhancing benefits of certain herbs and botanicals. Science is demonstrating the therapeutic qualities of many natural plant compounds, many of which have been used for thousands of years. But, consumer beware! Not all “natural” products are safe or effective.
Cannabidiol (CBD) has become extremely popular over the past few years. Recent scientific research demonstrates a wide variety of physical and mental benefits offered by pure, high quality full-spectrum CBD. It supports the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Every mammal has an ECS, which acts as the orchestra conductor of the body. It works quietly, behind the scenes, to regulate & balance all of our hormones, our brain chemistry, and our immune response. It supports the wisdom of every cell in our body…..POWERFUL stuff!
One of the biggest challenges is to know EXACTLY what you are getting in a CBD Product. HempSMART’s organic, full-spectrum CBD is derived from hemp (not marijuana). It contains the therapeutic spectrum of synergistic cannabinoids, active terpenes, terpenoids & flavonoids, as Mother Nature intended. Only the THC molecule is selectively removed. We preserve the important Entourage Effect, while eliminating ANY chance of getting “high”. You will not fail a drug test because all of hempSMART’s products are THC-FREE.
The current political and economic environment surrounding CBD is interesting. Many countries, states & territories are still “figuring it out”. Lack of understanding, along with changing legal requirements, has made it a bit of a Wild West out there.
Advertising is often a game of “smoke & mirrors.” Some companies are marketing hemp oil as a legitimate competitor to hemp-derived CBD oil. Not so fast!!! Hemp oil, by definition, comes from the SEED of the hemp plant. It is rich in omega fatty acids and can be used in cooking, cosmetic applications, as a carrier oil for other therapeutic compounds, or in industrial products. Hemp Oil contains almost ZERO CBD or other cannabinoids.
Product labeling is not well regulated and it may be very difficult to tell exactly what you are purchasing. Always read the fine print. A reputable company will specify the exact content of CBD. The best companies provide a scientific analysis of their products, conducted by an independent certified lab. You should be able to see the amounts of every ingredient and the proof that the product is free from herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals, bacteria, mold & other contaminants.
Remember, HEMP OIL and CBD OIL are two very different products. It’s like comparing wine to grape seed oil. They come from two very different parts of the plant with very different properties. Both have legitimate uses, but do NOT confuse them. HempSMART uses organic hemp oil and coconut oil as a premium carrier for our full- spectrum CBD. Our labeling is precise, and complete Certificates of Analysis
are available online for every product. Quality, Integrity, & Transparency matter.
