Obviously, CBD-rich hemp oil has much higher concentrations of CBD, (or cannabidiols, which are therapeutic medicinal components) than food grade hemp oil. Both of these oils are extracted from hemp plants that have a very low (less than 3%) psychoactive THC content so neither oil will make anyone high. CBD-rich hemp oils and produced for medicinal purposes and hemp oils are produced for food.
Let me explain further. Food grade hemp oil, (also known more accurately as hemp seed oil), is derived by pressing hemp’s omega-3 fatty acid rich oil from their seeds. In which case, the hemp plants used are specifically cultivated for the best seed oil-producing potential, without regard to the CBD content.
On the other hand, CBD-rich hemp oil is derived from hemp plants (usually started from genetically controlled clones) of carefully cultivated plant strains known to have very high concentrations of CBD. The best CBD oil usually undergoes frequent laboratory testing to ensure strict standards to ensure these high CBD concentrations. At peak harvest time, the hemp flower buds are harvested, dried and pulverized into a fine powder. Then this powder is distilled using CO2 to render a thick, light yellow paste. The paste is then mixed with food grade alcohol and distilled again to render a clear, highly concentrated CBD oil, with the thick, waxy fatty acids removed.
Beyond this, it’s important to research CBD oils before you buy, due to a wide range of quality. if you are shopping for CBD rich hemp oil, it’s important to choose premium quality products that have the following standards for the best results. Make sure you are getting:
1. CBD Oil made from certified, organic non-GMO, pesticide-free hemp.
2. Pure, full-spectrum, unadulterated CBD oil, rather than oil that has been diluted with carrier food-grade oils, such as coconut oil and/or olive oil.
3. CBD Oil that has been CO2 extracted, which ensures that the beneficial cannabinoid compounds are optimally retained for the best medicinal results.
