Frequently Asked Questions
What is cannabidiol (CBD)?

What is the difference between hemp extract / CBD oil, hemp oil & hemp seed oil?
Distinguishing various cannabis products can be confusing. There are many varieties of cannabis, all of which have different amounts of THC, CBD, other phytocannabinoids and terpenes. Cannabis varieties that have more than 0.3 percent THC are commonly referred to as marijuana. Hemp is any variety of cannabis that contains less than 0.3 percent THC, the legal limit.
That’s right, cannabis and hemp are the same species! The only difference between them is that to be called hemp it must contain less than 0.3 percent THC by volume.
So what’s the difference between hemp oil, hemp seed oil and hemp extract?
Hemp extract, as used in Authentically Hemp products, is the oily substance pressed from the entire plant, stalks, leaves and flower, containing less than 0.3% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and a very high concentration of CBD (cannabidiol). CBD is the substance identified by scientist as providing a number of health benefits such as reducing inflammation.
Hemp oil is extracted from the stalk only of a hemp plant. Legally, it must have less than 0.3 percent THC.
Hemp seed oil is extracted from just hemp seeds. It too contains very low levels of THC, but also very low levels of CBD. There is very little concentration of CBD in hemp seed oil. Although hemp seed oil does have health benefits, such as fatty acids, it does not have them nearly to the extent that hemp extract does.
So, someone interested in the benefits of CBD should seek products made with hemp extract as the source since it has the highest CBD level. More specifically, they ought to be looking to the all-natural, non-gmo, organically grown, CBD rich, whole-plant hemp extract found in Authentically Hemp products.
Put simply, the difference between hemp oil & hemp extract is hemp oil does not contain the high level of CBD and all the other beneficial components, the core ingredient in a medicinal grade CBD product such as in Authentically Hemp products. Authentically Hemp is a hemp extract product distributor and retailer. We do not offer hemp oil products. Authentically Hemp sells CBD Rich Hemp Extract products only.
Different types of hemp oil:
1. Hemp extract:
Hemp extract is made from the whole plant, including the flowering portion, without removing any components of the extracted substance. It is believed to be the most beneficial form as it naturally contains all the plant has to offer.
2. Hemp oil
This product has been extracted from only the stalk of a hemp plant, mainly for its moderate CBD content. Because it is extracted from only the stalk, it does not contain all the nutrients the plant has to offer.
3. Hemp seed oil:
This is oil has been extracted from hemp seeds only. Hemp seed oil contains very little THC or CBD, if any, and is primarily used for its healthy fatty acid profile.
Will CBD make me feel “high”?
