Hemp Oil Vs CBD Oil

Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil… what is the difference?

There is a lot of people out there that have no idea there is a big difference. Like myself! The past couple years the “green rush” of cannabis products have been flooding the market.  A question I hear a lot is…Can you get high from the CBD or Hemp Oil?

No- you can’t get high from hemp or CBD hemp oil or CBD products.

There are two different cannabis plants one is non-psychoactive hemp and the other is psychoactive marijuana. I want to share with you what I’ve been using on myself and my family. 

What is CBD?

CBD oil is made from the leaves, flowers, and the stalk of the hemp plant. There are NO psychoactive effects but there sure is a lot of health benefits.  CBD oil helps with pain relief, inflammation, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. I benefit so much from using CBD oil for my arthritis, anxiety, and depression. I actually have given up on my prescription depression medicine this year because I felt like I was always in a fog.  Now I’m taking CBD oil when it is needed. My life is so much better now.  ALL NATURAL is the way to go.

One company I want to tell you about is Vital Body Therapeutics which is amazing and you will love their products- I DO!  They have perfect travel-friendly CBD body care products!. The products are full-spectrum, hemp-derived CBD products that nourish the body and relieve inflammation with handmade and organic ingredients, including essential oils and solar-infused herbs with zero cannabis scent. 

Here are my favorites:

  • CBD Pain Relief Cream: A soothing formula enhanced for quick absorption and infused with calming oils.  My husband uses this when his shoulder starts hurting, he had surgery on it last year so the pain is still there, this cream helps a lot. 
  • On-the-Go Pain Relief Balm: The roll-on balm combines healing herbs to intensify the effects of CBD. I keep this in my purse and when my arthritis acts up- I roll this on my sore areas- usually my wrist and hands. 
  • CBD Epsom Soak: This enhances the medicinal effects of CBD and to accelerate recovery and healing of injured connective tissue. On a day that I just can’t move very well, I need this soak!  You can use in a tub of course but I also use at night for a foot soak and I feel all the misery soaking out of my body and sleep finds me all night. 

Now let’s talk about Hemp Oil

It seems hemp oil is more about the nutritional aspect because it contains healthy fats and mineral content. Did you know that the human body produces cannabinoids naturally? I didn’t!  It is called endocannabinoids and so sometimes our bodies need little cannabinoids in it to balance out. Very interesting and guess what if you want to learn more then Veritas Farms Full Spectrum Hemp Oil is a place you need to visit and take a look at their products.  Hemp has many beneficial compounds for our bodies.

The past few weeks I’ve been using the Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Moisturizing Lotion- Minted Lavender and I actually feel the lotion working. The mint and oil seem to dissolve right into the skin and does its magic. I know it is weird to say I feel that but I do. I live with arthritis and when I put this lotion on it is very soothing. But what I like the best about this lotion is how it makes my skin feel…SO SOFT! 

Pet Tincture

But wait I have another cool thing to add about Veritas Farms Full Spectrum Hemp Oil is they make Pet Tincture (Bacon or Tuna) and it WORKS!  I was super excited to try this on my Pitbull Harley.  Every year we don’t look forward to the 4th of July due to how Harley acts…CRAZY! When I mean crazy I mean he is running around, barking loud and just won’t listen.  

This year though I received the Pet Tincture and decided to use it and thank goodness because it was LOUD outside our house. Now I’m not saying he was a perfect angel but he did calm down enough to sit with me on the couch while the family was outside watching the fireworks. Maybe next year we will try going outside but this year it was nice to have a calmer dog. 

I appreciate the fact we have more natural products to help with our healing that WORKS!  I did talk to my arthritis doctor and my dog’s vet before trying these products. Gaining knowledge before trying products is highly recommended. 

I hope you have a better idea what Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil is I know I do now and appreciate the opportunity to try out all these amazing products.

  1. CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep. Thanks for the wonderful information.
