Medicinal use of marijuana keeps on growing in spite of the legal uncertainty
surrounding the therapeutic use of the plant. There are other products in the market which offer
all the health benefits that marijuana offers without much of the side effects. CBD oil and hemp
oil are such oils that are gaining popularity when it comes to health benefits. The products
incorporating such oils are filling up the shelves of the pharmacy and supermarket.
The Cannabis Sativa plant has a male and female form. The male form is called a hemp plant
while the female form is called as cannabis. The cannabis plant has two genera – one is called
satvia, and the other one is called as Indica. Sativa has invigorating effects, while Indica has
calming effects. Hemp oil is extracted from the seed and the stalk of the plant. It is cold pressed
and lacks CBD. Hemp oil is loaded with vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and protein. It contains
anti-inflammatory properties due to the high omega-3 content.
CBD oil is extracted using CO2 or ethanol from hemp or cannabis plant and offers the maximum
health and wellness benefits. CBD oil has high medical potency in comparison to hemp oil. It is
used to treat inflammation of the joint, to eliminate pain and to treat several mental disorders
including depression, anxiety, and epilepsy.
