CBD & Hemp Oil –Same plant, same oil? Nope.The phrase “well-oiled” machine means a machine that is ‘useful, efficient, [and]effective.’1 What do you do every 3,000-6,000 miles you drive yourcar? Change the oil. In fact, any machine that’s expected to put in the longhours frequently gets some love in the form of this lubricant. And although welack the metal and bolts of our robotic friends, many of us humans areconsidered to work like machines. So where’s our lubricant? Where’s ourlife-preserving oil?
Welcome to world of Cannabis Sativa.
The Cannabis Sativa plant is responsible for two main oils that are the Dr.Ganja hot topic of today:
CBD oil and Hemp Oil**. Surprisingly, although the two oils are derived from the**
same plant, their chemical composition and effects (and therefore, uses) are
drastically different. So here’s the lowdown on these two wonderful oils:
Hemp Oil is usually only extracted from the seeds of the Cannabis Sativa plant. The seeds
are cold pressed and voila**!: oil.**
Hemp (seed) oil is a lot like other oils that you use every day in your kitchen
such as olive or coconut oil. It contains vital minerals like magnesium and potassium,
but it also contains the essential Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids that the body
requires but cannot manufacture on its own! The importance of these fatty acids
for the brain and the body alone cannot be underestimated, here’s the short of
it: omega 3’s are essential for your cardiovascular health (among other things)
and omega 6’s are essential for proper brain functioning (among other things).
Just like the cooking oil comparison above, hemp oil is often used in the kitchen. It has
amazing health benefits due to its nutritional power-punch, and is even used in
some soaps and skin care products.
