Cannabis Sativa seeds, as known as hemp seed oil or hemp oil, are packed full of essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. Essential fatty acids are not only good for inside your body, but outside as well. Applying essential fatty acids to your skin, you are hydrating your skin, clearing acne, and improving elasticity. Additionally, hemp oil will not clog your pores.

Benefits you will see while using hemp oil are reduction in fine lines, redness, wrinkles, and clearing of acne caused by oil. You will smooth inflammation and irritation on the skin. Hemp oil has been studied and proven to help psoriasis and eczema.

Although, hemp seed oil and hemp extract have similar benefits, they are completely different. Hemp seed derived products will not contain any active cannabinoids. According the FDA, hemp seeds are considered generally recognized as safe. This doesn’t include hemp extract as of today. FDA is deciding what rules and regulations are appropriate for the industry.

We have hemp seed protein available for you to add to smoothies, shakes, and baked goods. This protein is a super food. Hemp root salve from Kentucky Hemp Works and Body Butter from Tierra Curativa are both made with hemp seed oil and do not contain any active cannabinoids. These would be excellent for your skin!

The market is booming in cannabis, and knowing the difference in terms is very important. Hemp Seed oil and hemp extract oil are two different terms that easily can be confused. I want to explain the difference between the two, so you understand what you are buying.

Hemp seed oil, also called hemp oil, is made from hemp seeds. This oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and found in cooking oils, lotions, and soaps. Hemp oil doesn’t contain any active phytocannabinoids. Products that contain hemp oil are great for hydrating your skin and whole body health. You can find hemp seed in food as well check out our hemp seed protein powder from Kentucky Hemp Works.

Hemp extract oil is extracted from the flowers of the plant. This oil has active phytocannabinoids like CBD, THC, CBN, and CBG just to name a few. Research has just begun on what exactly phytocannabinoids can do for our body. Studies have shown potential for anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety properties.

Hemp seed oil and hemp extract oil can be easily confused because the names are similar. We have some products with both, which is great because you are getting the whole plant. Make sure you look at your labels when purchasing hemp products to know what part of the plant you are getting. The results will reflect that, as they do not give the same benefits.

Stay Blissful,
