There is much confusion when it comes to identifying the difference between the medicinal cannabis and its extracted cannabinoid treatment. CBD oil, Cannabis Oil and Hemp Oil could almost be referencing the same standard cannabis oil., due to the lack of differentiation available to the public. The internet uses all of these terms interchangeably and yet, they are not the same, nor is the quality of the final product.
1) Cannabis Oil can contain many different constituents and typically will have multiple cannabinoids present, alongside terpenes, flavonoids and contaminants if not extracted pharmaceutically and tested thoroughly.
2) CBD oil is an extraction of the powerful CBD cannabinoid, responsible for the multiple treatment variations it embodies. It can be extracted from industrial hemp stalks and leaves, thus some CBD oil available online is actually CBD Hemp Oil. CBD Oil is also extracted from the Cannabis Plant and flower.
CBD HEMP OIL
3) CBD Hemp Oil is the extraction of CBD from the hemp plant, but it is extracted from the stalks and leaves of the industrial hemp plant. Hemp is cheap and legal in most parts of the world. CBD Hemp potency is much less than that of the CBD extracted from the Cannabis plant/flower.
PURE CBD OIL
4) Pure CBD Oil is the extraction from a CBD Rich Cannabis Plant. The CBD Rich cannabis plant is usually genetically reproduced to yield higher levels of CBD. Oil is then purified, removing all contaminants to result in a CBD rich, low THC medicine which is 100% legal for medical treatment in Australia.
5) Hemp Oil is sometimes confused with CBD oil because both are low in THC and contain CBD. Though hemp oil does contain low levels of CBD, typically less than 25 parts per million (ppm), CBD extracts produced from cannabis flowers are up to 15 percent CBD (150,000 ppm) CBD is not a product or component of hemp seeds. Hemp oil contains far less CBD (cannabidiol) than CBD-rich cannabis oil and a large amount of industrial hemp is required to extract a small amount of CBD. The risk of contaminants is increased with hemp as a “bio-accumulator”—meaning the plant naturally drawns toxins from the soil.
