The crude hemp oil extracted from seeds is a panacea for the human body because it contains many vitamins, minerals, terpenes, flavonoids, essential fatty acids and cannabinoids. Hemp seed oil has always been recognized for its analgesic and relaxing properties.
Before continuing we must clarify that many people confuse cannabis oil with hemp oil and with all other types of oils deriving from the use of this plant. There are actually substantial differences between CBD oil, THC oil, marijuana oil, hemp seed oil, hemp oil and cannabis oil.
The differences are substantial, they relate to its structure, its components and its benefits in relation to human use.
Differences between hemp oil and cbd
Cannabis oil is a term used to indicate all oils derived from hemp. hemp oil, on the other hand, is derived from hemp seeds which are absolutely free of cannabinoids. So hemp seed oil is something very different from CBD oil and THC oil, which are cannabinoids derived from cannabis but with very different molecular structures and effects on the human body.
While CBD oil is certainly rich in the cannabinoid substance of the same name, it has a low content of THC, which is a cannabinoid with a different structure from CBD. So CBD oil is not as psychoactive as THC oil.
It therefore follows that THC oil has a relaxing effect and acts on the nervous system, while CBD oil is to a different extent. Their effects are absolutely different on the human body, for example THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, acts on the body by increasing appetite, slowing down reflexes and reaction time, altering memory, coordination and mental state. For this reason, THC in high doses is not allowed and for oils based on this cannabinoid it is necessary to have a prescription.
Benefits of CBD oil
We have talked about what benefits hemp seed oil brings to the body, but now it is time to focus on CBD oil. As far as CBD is concerned, it is useful to remember that it has many positive effects and is practically free from side effects. It works by strengthening the network of receptors and therefore bringing benefits to mood, regulating appetite, strengthening the immune response and above all it is able to regulate sleep.
CBD has important analgesic effects, in fact it is used because it acts on pain receptors and is actually a powerful pain reliever. Many products that aim to relieve pain felt by animals such as cats or dogs are made with a certain amount of CBD. This type of oil is also able to soothe pain resulting from chronic diseases.
Even in the cosmetic field, CBD oil is able to give great results, for example for its widely recognized anti-aging properties, or for its effectiveness against acne or as a hair and root strengthener.
Benefits of hemp oil
Instead, let’s talk about hemp oil which is different from hemp seed oil. In fact, cannabinoids are not present in the latter and it is extracted from the cannabis sativa plant, rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fibers, essential fatty acids such as omega 3 and omega 6.
To obtain this type of oil, the seeds are cold pressed. Cold pressing allows you to extract the greatest number of organoleptic substances: hemp seeds are able to provide a good amount of linoleic acid, a very important element for the health of the body and also rare to find. In fact, linoleic acid gives hemp seed oil its typical and recognized antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties.
It is also very important for regulating bad cholesterol levels in the blood as well as preventing the risk of thrombosis. Since it has an anti-inflammatory property, it is useful in premenstrual syndrome or in cases of arthrosis, arthritis and osteoporosis and, in general, it is effective in fighting bone pain. Its effect on the immune system makes it essential in allergy prevention therapies. It is also useful for treating mycosis, irritations and numerous other dermatological problems.
