Where does cbd oil come from?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound found in marijuana. CBD can be derived from hemp or from plants that are not hemp. Hemp is defined as any part of the cannabis sativa plant with no more than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the mind-altering substance in marijuana. CBD is derived from the resin of the hemp plant.

Hemp or CBD oil is what most CBD oil products contain. It is used as a nutritional supplement and has many health benefits, such as restoring body balance and helping to relieve inflammation and anxiety. Hemp seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant, which is a variety of the cannabis sativa plant that contains less than 0.3% THC, while CBD oil comes from the leaves, stems and flowers of cannabis and hemp plants. Hemp seed oil can be used as a cooking oil to enhance flavor and can be sprayed on vegetables or as a salad dressing.

The stems of the hemp plant can produce clothing, ropes, paper, fuel, household insulation, and more. The seeds are cold pressed to produce oil; the oil can be used for cooking (such as in hemp milk and granola), in beauty products and even in paint.
