Does Hemp Seed Oil Contain Cannabinoids?

by Troy M. Mr
If someone entered a store that sold only hemp products and asked if they could purchase organic cannabinoid hemp oil, they might find themselves on the receiving end of confused looks at first. This is because the product does not exist. It has already been altered and is no longer just purely hemp oil, but a mixture.
 
Even so, making the distinction between hempseed oil and cannabinoid oils is an essential first step for new users. And to do so requires a look into their fundamental differences.

 

Clarifying A Common Misconception

Pure hemp or hempseed oil does not contain cannabinoids like CBD or THC in particular. On the occasion that it does, it is usually the result of other materials from the cannabis plant getting stuck on the seed during the manufacturing process.
 
Should there be any traces of cannabinoids, it will be very much negligible. In most cases, the amount is so minimal that if your hemp oil does have THC, the chances of it being detected in drug tests are slim to none. Users who are living in states where CBD or marijuana are prohibited need not worry about doing anything against the law. However, informing whoever required you to take the test that you are taking hemp oil is still highly advised.
 

Understanding The Ingredients

The reason behind the lack of cannabinoids in hemp oil lies in the main ingredient—the hemp seed. The hemp plant is known to have far less THC content and more CBD, but the hemp seed itself does not have any of the two. This also means that they each have their properties.
 
Since the other parts of the hemp plant—flowers, stalks, leaves, are used to produce CBD oil, this often leads to it being mistaken for hempseed oil.

If users do want to enjoy the benefits of both oils at the same time, they can do so by combining the two.
 

Know What You’re Buying

When using cannabis-based products for the first time, keep this in mind: Cannabinoid-rich hemp oil does not exist. If it has high concentrations of CBD or THC, then that means that it may not have been manufactured properly and should not be purchased. It may not even be purely hempseed oil at all. It can be a CBD product that is using it as a carrier oil.


 
Make sure always to read the labels and descriptions of the product you’re buying, and choose only from certified sellers. Familiarize yourself with the properties of the two oils. Most importantly, don’t be afraid to ask for advice from more knowledgeable CBD and hemp oil users, and also your physician.  
 
It is also the responsibility of CBD or hemp oil sellers to clearly state the difference between the two.  If they have products that contain the two substances, then they should include it in their label. Not doing so can lead to disappointed buyers. Worse, it can lead to users inadvertently breaking the laws of their state—especially in those where the use and distribution of CBD remain illegal.
