Does Amazon Sell Real CBD Hemp Oil?

Differences between hemp seed oil and cdb hemp oil


Perhaps, lately, you have noticed the abundance of "Hemp Oil" products listed for sale on Amazon.  Anyone who has experienced the benefits of CBD knows that it can be a bit pricey, so when we find hemp oil being sold on Amazon for under $30.00 we get a bit excited.  

The confusion, you'll find, can be easily cleared up by properly identifying our terms.  Hemp oil is an oil that is made from the hemp plant.  Seems pretty simple right?  well, yes and no...

Not All Hemp Oils Are Created Equal

There are two general categories that hemp oil falls under, 1) Hemp oil made from the seeds of the hemp plant, and 2) Hemp oil made from the entire plant including the stalk, leaves, and flower.  

While hemp seed oil is very nutritious, it does not contain the range of 113 active cannabinoids, CBD being only one of them, found in hemp oil made from the entire plant. Hemp oil produced from the seeds of the hemp plant is much like oils derived from olives, almonds, and coconuts.  But, only oils made from the entire cannabis plant (the stalks, leaves, flower buds, etc.) contain CBD. 

Reported Uses of CBD Rich Hemp Oil

CBD oil is reported to have several therapeutic properties that make it a curious option for medicinal usage.

  • CBD oil is beneficial in the treatment of cancer, cardiovascular health.
  • CBD oil act as anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and can be used in the treatment of epilepsy.
  • Used in depression, anxiety, for an energy boost, and mood swings
  • Encourage optimal function of the nervous system to provide homeostasis

Find a Reputable Place to Purchase CBD Oil

While I do look forward to the day when we can buy CBD-rich hemp oil on Amazon, we need to accept that that day has not yet come.  Until then, my best advice is to find a brand such as Charlottes Web or an online store such as connected with an established doctor's office with a contact page so you can actually call and talk to someone to purchase from.
