Currently the legality of CBD is in the process of being legalized in many states throughout the USA. In order for CBD to be legalized there would need to be widespread public safety and health evidence that it is safe and/or effective for treating seizures, childhood epilepsy, and similar conditions. Currently the only reliable source of CBD is “THC” (tetrahydrocannabis). The legalization of CBD has resulted in a flurry of different products on the market, such as CBD oil and CBD seed oil. Unfortunately, much of this information is incorrect or misleading. This article will review both CBD oil and CBD seed oil to give you an understanding of whether they are right for you.
Both CBD and hemp seeds are derived from the same plants, which originate from India, Mexico and Brazil. However, hemp is more concentrated than do the other two sources. The concentration of CBD found in industrial hemp is around 40%, whereas the concentration of THC is just 3%. That said, the federal level has set a legal limit for allowable CBD in pharmaceuticals, while the federal level limits industrial hemp production to just 3% CBD.
There is a significant difference between CBD and hemp oil for several reasons. First, the CBD does not contain the THC found in industrial hemp plant. Second, the CBD does not contain any of the carcinogens, terpenoids, or pesticides commonly found in industrial hemp plant. (Tetrahydrocannabis also contains trace amounts of CBD, but none of the THC.)
So, is there a difference between CBD and hemp oil? On one hand, CBD appears to be less harmful than hemp because it does not contain the same carcinogens, THMs, pesticides, etc. Also, the Cannabidiol in CBD appears to act synergistically with certain other chemicals in the body. The body is able to make these chemicals itself, so CBD appears to help with weight loss, lowering blood pressure, reducing inflammation, and other ailments that affect the central nervous system. hemp on the other hand, does not seem to have any synergistic effects on the body. This may be due to the fact that industrial hemp is grown using crop which is fed on by humans, whereas CBD is derived from plants that have not been fed.
Is this difference enough to convince consumers to choose CBD over industrial hemp seed oil? Probably not. It might, however, help to illustrate why it is important to take nutrition into account when choosing dietary supplements. To make matters even more complicated, hemp products such as CBD are not allowed in some nutritional supplements due to the fact they contain marijuana. Regardless of what anyone else thinks, experts do agree that there is a significant difference between CBD and other drugs on the market.
So, is CBD a better alternative than hemp oil for weight loss? While CBD may not be as “effective” as hemp seed oil, it does appear to be much safer for the body. It may also have fewer side effects. The bottom line is that anyone who wants to lose weight should consider both products. The key is finding the one that works best for each individual.
