There are different ways on how to use CBD oil. Most people take a few drops of CBD oil under the tongue, but it can be added to your smoothie, coffee (apparently it takes away the jitters) or applied topically to pain points.
Hemp seed oil can be useful as a massage oil that can reduce pain when rubbed on sore joints.

What is omega good for?
Put simply, CBD restores homeostasis (the body’s natural balance). It works in the endocannabinoid system by activating two of its core receptors (known as CB1 and CB2), which regulate mood, temperature, cognitive function and muscle repair.
Omega-3s are essential fatty acids that many experts believe aid good brain and heart health as well as boosting circulation and the immune system. Gamma linolenic acid (or GLA) is part of the omega-6 family and is known for its role in easing the symptoms of PMS and supporting the growth of healthy skin, hair and nails. Meanwhile omega-9 plays a role in promoting heart health by supporting balanced cholesterol levels and improving immune function.
If you’ve read anything about the wellness trends for 2020 and 2021 then chances are you’ve heard of hemp oil and CBD oil (and chances are you’re a bit confused).
We’re here to make understanding CBD oil vs hemp seed oil as easy as loving them is. In a sentence, hemp oil (also known as hemp seed oil) comes from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plants and, while it does have health benefits, does not contain CBD. CBD oil, on the other hand, is a chemical compound extracted from the leaves, flowers and stalk of the same plant, and is used to treat everything from depression and anxiety to epilepsy and insomnia.
Here at Good Hemp we make a range of hemp products (from our hemp milk and hemp seeds to hemp protein powder and, of course, our original hemp oil ) from the hemp seed. But you’ve probably got more questions about all that: Are hemp oil and CBD oil the same thing or is there a difference between hemp oil and CBD oil? How exactly does CBD work? Does that mean hemp gets you high?
We thought we’d answer all of those questions in one place and delve deeper into hemp oil vs CBD oil.
Is hemp oil good for pain?
The main difference between hemp oil vs CBD oil, is that hemp oil has little to no CBD content. Hemp Oil is made by cold-pressing the hemp seeds into an omega-rich culinary oil. CBD oil is made by extracting the compound CBD from the leaves, flowers and stalks of a hemp plant. However, both hemp oil and CBD oil, have their own health benefits.

CBD can be taken in a variety of ways, so how can CBD balm help? A soothing and softening emollient may improve problem skin as well as aiding relaxation.
CBD is not psychoactive and does not produce a ‘high’ but it does have beneficial effects. Cannabidiol oil is increasingly used as a food supplement to promote general feelings of well-being.
Dr. Sarah Brewer on the benefits of CBD balm
When conducting your own research on industrial hemp you will have come across CBD. But what is it and what does it stand for? Cannabidiol, or CBD is a substance classed as a cannabinoid, which is extracted from the flowers and leaves of non-drug strains of industrial hemp. These strains have been bred to produce naturally high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) but very low levels of the psychoactive cannabinoid (THC) found in medical marijuana. As cannabidiol is oil-soluble, it is combined with oils (eg olive oil, coconut oil, hemp seed oil) to produce cannabidiol oil for optimum absorption into the body.
Do not use CBD during pregnancy or breastfeeding
Hemp seed oil is considered a healthy, nutritionally-balanced oil, as it provides a high level of monounsaturated fats, and the essential fatty acids linoleic acid (55%), and alpha-linolenic acid (16%) with a low level of saturated fat (9%). Hemp seed oil provides the optimum balance of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids, and just one tablespoon (15ml) provide the daily requirement for essential fatty acids. 2

Hemp seed oil is a deep green oil obtained by pressing the seeds from non-drug strains of hemp plants. These strains have naturally low levels of cannabinoids – substances that interact with your own endocannabinoid receptors. The hemp seeds used to make food supplements are raw, the oil is cold-pressed, and certified organic and non-GMO.
Hemp seed oil is also used in the kitchen for its nutty, earthy flavour. Hemp seed oil is great to drizzle over food, add to salad dressings or to use in dips and pesto sauce. As hemp seed oil has a low smoke point, don’t use it for cooking or frying.
