Hemp oil vs cannabis oil
Cannabis sativa as the ‘hemp plant’ has traditionally been valued for its strong fibrous stalks, which have been used for various products, including rope, paper, and textiles. More recently, it has also been valued as the source of ‘hemp oil’ (more accurately hemp seed oil) made by cold pressing hemp seeds.
Hemp seed oil is valued for its nutty taste, light green hemp color and richness in Vitamin E and Omega 3, 6 and 9. This article has been sold on the EU market as a food and cosmetics ingredient according to the European safety standards and regulations.
Hemp extracts defined
The main difference between ‘true’ hemp oil vs CBD oil, is that hemp seed oil has little CBD content while CBD or CBG oil use diluted hemp extracts from plant matter (leaves and flowers).
The essential physical differences between various hemp extracts are codified in the Combined Nomenclature (CN) conventions published in the Journal of the European Union. These include definitions of Extract of cannabis: Vegetable saps and hemp extracts, CN 1302 19 70.
Hemp oil applications
So-called ‘hemp oil’ uses (i.e. hemp seed oil) include aromatics, hemp flavorings, edible oils, and beauty products. Hemp seed oil is particularly valued in cosmetics for having anti-inflammatory effects against complaints such as acne and rashes and moisturizing the skin.
