Is CBD and Hemp Seed Oil the Same? How to Know the Difference

METTALUSSO MEDIA Says Hemp Seed Oil is Not CBD Here’s the breakdown on CBD as a cosmetic ingredient. Too many cosmetic products are claiming to have CBD in them when they do not. Ingredient truth-fighters have worked tirelessly over the last decade.  For instance- and thanks to their efforts, transparency in claims for natural and organic products has truly paid off.

Until now. So here we go again. Everywhere we look, its all about CBD. This hot new ingredient truly needs clear communication.  

Begin by doing what you always do. Read the ingredient label. Ingredients can come in various forms and CBD is no different.

Begin by doing what you always do-

  1. Read the Ingredient Label.METTALUSSO MEDIA Says to Read The CBD Ingredient Label

Does “hemp oil” also referred to as “hemp seed oil” have CBD in it?

NOPE. Hemp Seed Oil comes from just as it says, the seed. CBD comes from different parts of the plant- the stalks, leaves and flowers. Hemp seed oil claims to have nutritional and cosmetic value, but it is NOT CBD. So, if you are thinking you have purchased a cosmetic with CBD in it, the ingredients must list more than just “hemp oil” or “hemp seed oil”.

But labels can be tricky, everybody seems to be using different wording.

METTALUSSO MEDIA says Hemp Oil is Not CBDSo, if a label says just “hemp oil”-read further and do your research to make sure you are indeed shelling out for a CBD product and not just a seed oil.

Don’t misunderstand. Hemp seed oil is wonderful. It is like many other cosmetic botanical oils such as jojoba seed oil, macadamia seed oil, sunflower oil-these are all great oils with tons of benefits. But, you might be paying for and expecting CBD level results and quality and not getting it!

 

Begin by doing what you always do-
