Hemp oil can mean a few different things, and we’re here to explain exactly the differences between the various types of hemp oil. So, when anyone is talking about hemp oil they could be talking about hemp seed oil, CBD Peppermint Oil, or hemp essential oil. In modern times, the term “hemp oil” is increasingly used in place of “Peppermint Hemp Oil”, whereas in the past it would have more commonly been used to describe hemp seed oil. It could also be used to describe the cannabis oil that is rich in THC, and illegal here in the UK. This is the oil that cannabis activist Rick Simpson championed, and claimed to treat his skin cancer with successfully.

For today’s discussion, we’re just going to stick to talking about the 3 “hemp oil” products that are legal here in the UK. Hemp seed oil, Peppermint Hemp Oil, and hemp essential oil.

What is Hemp Seed Oil?

Hemp seed oil is a highly nutritious, protein-rich plant oil derived from the seeds of the hemp plant. The seeds are cold-pressed to squeeze out all of the natural oil within while keeping all of the health-giving nutrients and enzymes intact.

The hemp seed oil contains high levels of omega oils including Omega-3 and 6 in the perfect ratio for human consumption. It contains all of the essential fatty acids that our bodies need to function. We cannot create these essential fatty acids ourselves, so we must look to outside sources to acquire them.

Hemp seeds contain vital vitamins and minerals, along with the essential proteins that we need to function. Hemp seed has been called “the most complete source of nutrition on the planet” because of its incredible mix of vitamins, minerals, and proteins.

How to Use Hemp Seed Oil

We recommend ingesting up to 5 tablespoons of hemp seed oil a day to get the maximum benefits, but you can always start with a lower amount and work your way up. You can always just administer the oil by itself, on a spoon. Close your eyes and swallow it down. This might not be the most pleasant way of ingesting the oil, but it certainly gets the job done. Of course, if you don’t like the taste of the oil then you could always opt for the popular hempseed oil capsules so that you can still get your intake of hemp seed oil, but neatly packaged in an easy-to-swallow capsule. In this case, just swallow two capsules with some water 2-3 times a day.

What is CBD Peppermint Hemp Oil?

Peppermint Hemp Oil (cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid present in the hemp plant, it is legal and non-psychoactive unlike its cousin THC which is illegal in most countries around the world (but increasingly becoming decriminalized and legalized in various areas of the globe).

CBD Peppermint Oil is mostly extracted from the flowers of the hemp plant but is also present in every part of the plant. The natural oil is usually extracted using a technique known as CO2 extraction, a safe and chemical-free method also used to decaffeinate coffee.

How to Use CBD Oil

The advice for ingesting CBD Peppermint Oil most effectively is to simply drop the required dosage under your tongue allowing the oil to absorb sublingually and then swallow after 60-180 seconds. Sublingual absorption is the best way to get the most out of your Peppermint Hemp Oil and is widely believed to be the fastest delivery method for the oil. When talking about Peppermint Hemp Oil, we often mention the term “bioavailability”, this is a term to describe how much of the Peppermint Hemp Oil enters your bloodstream. Oral ingestion of CBD Peppermint Oil is estimated to have around 6% bioavailability, whereas sublingual absorption has been measured at 13-19% with some results as high as 56%. So if you administer 10mg of CBD oil sublingually, around 1-6mg of CBD is entering your bloodstream, vs 0.6mg if you are swallowing the oil straight down.

What is Hemp Essential Oil?

Here at the hemp shop, we sold hemp essential oil for years before CBD Peppermint Oil was legalized in the UK. Before the CBD floodgates opened this oil was sought out by people for much the same reasons as CBD Peppermint Oil is sought out today. People have been using hemp essential oil to treat health conditions for thousands of years. Hemp essential oil is a highly distilled essential oil from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant. It contains hundreds of terpenes. These terpenes are the compounds of the cannabis plant that protect it from predators and funguses. These compounds are distilled into the Hemp essence to provide a range of health benefits including anti-depressant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
