There’s no missing the fact that CBD is everywhere these days. Everywhere from your local farmer’s market to your favorite coffee shop is selling products with touting CBD, hemp extract, and hemp oil. Fans praise these ingredients as the answer to a plethora of physical health and anxiety-related problems. But what are they? Are all cannabis derivatives created equal? What’s the difference between CBD, hemp extract, and hemp oil? And can any of them actually help muscle soreness, inflammation, and pain? Here’s everything you need to know before buying into the CBD hype.
CBD oil and hemp extract are typically synonymous—and, just to add to the confusion, are also referred to as plain old hemp oil. Hemp extract is specifically elicited from those parts of the hemp plant known to have high levels of cannabidiol, which provides all the anti-inflammatory and analgesic benefits.
And 42 percent of CBD users reported giving up traditional medications like Tylenol or prescription drugs like Vicodin in favor of CBD, in a survey conducted by Brightfield Group and HelloMD, an online community for doctors and cannabis patients together (and 80 percent of those people said they found the CBD products to be “very or extremely effective”).
That said, the FDA has issued warnings against illegally marketed CBD products that promise unrealistic results, including claims that it can cure cancer.
As for isolate extracts, this is the product of choice for CBD purists. These products have all traces of THC, terpenes, flavonoids, and more removed during the extraction process, so that all that remains is pure CBD.
