Hemp oil and CBD oil are not the same. As we have explained to you previously, although both come from the cannabis or hemp plant, the former is a gastronomic ingredient of great nutritional interest, but it does not contain CBD, the extraordinary component of cannabis that is associated with so many therapeutic effects. While hemp oil, as the seed oil that it is, is obtained by cold-pressing hemp seeds, for CBD oil, the highly valued cannabidiol must be carefully extracted from the plant (CO2 extraction). Subsequently, it is formulated in an oily base (in our case, triple base), which includes hemp oil, olive oil and coconut oil. There is no cold pressing.
