Are All CBD Oils the Same?

Can you get scammed by the above questions?
The Answer is a Resounding……..YES!!!!!!
Is Hemp Oil or Hemp Seed Oil the same as CBD Oil?
Do Not be Fooled or Tricked out of your Money and your families Future Health by semantics and word games!!!!
CBD Oil is Going Viral Around the World!!!
Can this cause Greed and Confusion?………………..YES!
CBD Oil is without a doubt the hottest ticket business to come along in many, many years.
This is happening Organically by Word of Mouth.
This could not happen on such a giant scale unless CBD Oil is exactly the Miricle Oil it is claimed to be.Actually, it may very well be the Fastest Growing Health Industry of All Time!!!! Why???
Two years ago No One had ever heard of Cannabidiol (CBD Oil) even though it had been being used for over 12 Thousand years by humans for themselves and their livestock*.
*Note: Read my article on “A Brief History of Hemp” in this VeteransHealthBlog.Com
Today it is practically impossible to find anyone that has not heard of CBD Oil.
The Flood Gates have been blown completely wide open by this gigantic stampede to get in on this Miricle Oil and the Multi-Billion Dollar industry it is now generating.
$$$-22 Billion Dollar Business by 2020-$$$
Do a Google Search!
The waters have been churned up by all this activity! This has caused everything to get very cloudy with all the muck and mud.
It is like the Gold Rushes in California and the Yukon during the 1880s.
Rip Off Artists are salting the mines to draw in unsuspecting gullible customers.
How do you keep this from happening to you?
Be sure that the decisions you make for you and your families future health come from reliable sources.
So let’s look at some of the mud!
Hemp, Hemp Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, and CBD Oil.
Are they the same?………………………….NO!!!!!!!!!
It is very important to understand the differences between what those names mean!!!
Because of the Speed of Light growth of this industry, many unscrupulous Rip Off Artists are pouring into this Exploding Industry. They are using these terms above to fool buyers with Bait and Switch tactics to trick unsuspecting customers into purchasing combinations of herbs, oils, and extracts that look and seem real on the surface. They are not!!! This can be VERY CONFUSING.
Hemp Oil or Hemp Seed Oil almost always is not CBD Oil.
What do you need to watch for?
- If it does not say 100% Full Spectrum CBD Oil – Beware!!!
- If the product description reads Hemp Oil or Hemp Seed Oil – Beware!!!
- If it is purchased at an UnLicensed Pot Dispensary – Beware!!!
- If they do not offer Up To Date Lab Reports – Beware!!!
- If the person you talk to cannot provide Documentation – Beware!!!
- If they say things like Absorption Rates, Water Solubility, and cannot provide Documentation – Beware!!!!
There are thousands of so-called Professional CBD Experts pouring into this industry that will make claims of all kinds but it is easy to cull them from the herd.
Always ask a few specific questions:
- Do You Have Recent Lab Reports?
- Do you have documentation to support your companies claims?
- What is your health studies, research, and background to support your claims?
If they roll their eyes and begin to spit and sputter walk away. You will be amazed at how often this will happen.
Important: The Cannabidiol (CBD’s) are the healers.
Does Marijuana contain CBD’s? Yes. However, Marijuana has very low amounts of them.
This is due to growers spending years genetically manipulating marijuana for a higher THC Content which is the substance in it that is psychotropic. THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is what gets us high.
The massive value of CBD’s was not realized until the past few years.
Marijuana generally has less than .03% CBD.
The opposite is true in Marijuana’s Sister Plant Hemp. Hemp has less than .03% THC however very high in CBD.
Another benefit is the high % of Omega 3, 6 & 9 in Hemp which is so important in things like Fish Oil. It is a very important substance for the brain. I like to call it Brain Butter and it is excellent for PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and things like Alzheimer’s, depression and anxiety.
Why is Hemp Seed Oil so much cheaper?
While hemp seed oil has omegas it is nonexistent in CBD.
From the internet:
Hemp seed oil, it should be noted, is not the same as CBD-rich oil extracted from the flowers and leaves of the plant. Oil pressed from hemp seed contains no CBD, no THC, no plant cannabinoids to speak of, but it’s excellent for making varnish, paint, soap, protein-enriched food supplements, and much more.
CBD Oil or Salad Dressing:
I personally like hemp seed oil for my Salad Dressing Recipes because of the Omegas. I buy 32 oz bottles on Amazon for under $24.99.
When planning to buy CBD Oil watch for the semantics. It must say Full Spectrum CBD Oil.
If it reads Hemp Oil or Hemp Seed Oil do not buy unless you want very expensive salad dressing.
Unscrupulous companies are reselling it in 1 oz bottles for $35 or more. Do the math on that one.
Here let me do that for you: $35 times 24 oz= $840!!!
Hemp Oil or Hemp Seed Oil is very inexpensive to make. Simply shovel the seeds into a large press and out pours the oil.
You will find hundreds of small 1oz bottles that look and sound almost identical to CBD Oil on websites like Amazon. Read the descriptions very carefully. If you can’t find “CBD” anywhere on the bottle or paperwork do not be fooled.
Growing, Harvesting, Stabilization, Extraction, and Storage:
For thousands of years, humans have discovered incredible healing herbs, plants and substances and even the bark of trees through the processes of trial and error.
Thanks to Big Pharma and their Advertising Juggernaught and Fake News tactics age-old healers such as Aloe Vera, Hemp, and others were shoved into the background in favor of their toxic drugs.
This was made easier due to old and outdated harvesting, stabilization, and storage capabilities.
Let’s take Aloe Vera as an example.
Alexander the Great brought wagons full of live plants into battle. It had to be used within a very short time of its harvesting and could not be stored. As soon as the plant is cut it releases an enzyme that destroys the PolyMannans which are the healing properties of the plant.
Some chemists and researchers I was lucky enough to know forty years ago who working for Carrington Labs in Texas developed a process to stabilize the Polymannans. This was huge.
This was the beginning of a rebirth of age-old healing substances that have been healing.
These herbs and plants had helped humans from the beginning of time and now with modern processes are improving on them and making them safer and better for us than anything that can be formulated in a Pharmaceutical lab with their boiling beakers full of toxic chemicals.
The company I buy my CBD Oil from uses the finest extraction method in the world. It is the most expensive but the best:
What is CO2 Extraction?
The Supercritical CO2 extraction process creates phase changes in carbon dioxide utilizing temperature and pressure. CO2 is known as a “tunable solvent” making it extremely versatile for creating a multitude of end products by controlling temperature and pressure. These phase changes create an environment to drop out differing weights of components in the plant material.
Why use CO2
The primary reason is to create a pure, clean, quality oil that is safe to produce with little-to-no post-processing, unlike toxic solvents that may require many hours to purge the solvent trapped in the oil. In addition, multiple industries have proven that the highest efficiencies in commercial processing utilize CO2.
The company I work with also uses FDA Approved Growing, Harvesting and Processing facilities.
Our products are Non-GMO, organic, and domestically grown CBD.
This is why the company I get mine from also has the best Lab Reports available for every batch. Without the lab reports, people are being ripped off every day. So-called CBD is being sold at some UnLicensed Dispensaries that is nothing more than Olive Oil that has been boiled with things like oregano or other herbs.
Even actual CBD Oil can have problems due to unsafe harvesting and bottling operations. Many have been taken from store shelves and tested and were found to have things like rat droppings and even asbestos in the bottles!!!
Be sure to do your own due diligence. I researched for several years and tried several companies before aligning myself with the company I trust. I have been with them for going on two years which is a long time in this new industry.
Several companies I looked at had good CBD Oil but were extremely expensive.
I am a Veterans Health Researcher and advocate. Many of the vets I work with can’t afford to overpay for their health needs. Price was one of the important factors but not if it subtracted from the quality of the product.
I am extremely satisfied that I found not only the finest quality but also a very fair price for the real deal.
