Hemp oil is an oil that comes from the hemp plant. While all plants in the Cannabis genus can produce the oil, generally only industrial hemp is used because it is cultivated specifically for industrial production. In addition, it is also almost free of THC and has no psychoactive properties. Although the whole plant can be pressed for oil, the best hemp oil tends to come from seeds.
Currently, the world is going crazy for all things organic including organic foods, organic products and everything else organic. This is due to the fact that advocates recommend organic products as safer and more nutritious. They also claim that they taste better and it is believed that organic production is more environment-friendly and safer for wildlife. Therefore, they are the right choice for a healthy living.
Conventional hemp seed and those used to make certified organic hemp oil are both grown without the use of pesticides and/or herbicides. Additionally, both are Non-GMO and are Gluten-Free. However, those that cultivate conventionally grown hemp seeds use fertilizer at the beginning of the growing cycle. The primary difference between the two is the certification. Unlike certified organic, conventional hemp seed does not undergo the same stringent inspections or follow the necessary guidelines that are needed to meet certified organic standards.
Organic CBD oil offers a guarantee that the hemp seed used to create it was grown under strict government guidelines and was inspected in order to guarantee that it is organic. There are many consumers who have become particular to these standards. However, due to the strict government guidelines and inspections, the cost of producing certified organic hemp seed and its oil is increased. Therefore, the cost of purchasing certified organic vs. conventional hemp seed and the resulting oil is higher.
Moreover, organic hemp oil is rich in CBD. In fact, inorganic CBD oils tend to contain less cannabidiol content. This is the compound that is said to reduce pain, inflammation, seizures, and also brings about balance within the human body. Inorganic hemp oil also requires a larger amount of industrial hemp to be used in order to create a small quantity of CBD extraction. Additionally, there is a higher risk of contamination because industrial hemp is a known bio-accumulator. That means it has a tendency to draw in the toxins that are present in the soil. Therefore, organic hemp oil has more nutritional value than any other CBD products currently being sold and have also been deemed safer for pregnant or nursing women, children, and those who cannot consume traditional pharmaceutical medicines.
Finally, organic oils tend to have a cleaner taste and are eco-friendly and non-flammable. It helps to create a safer laboratory and manufacturing environment, as well as better product control, over all. Regardless of which one you choose, organic or not, be aware that the oil is perishable and should be stored in a cool, dark place when not being used.
