Hemp Seed Oil vs. THC vs. CBD


It’s a word with a lot of weight. No other plant on the planet can seem to incite such a mixed bag of emotions and assumptions. It makes some people angry. Others are passionate. Some are indifferent. But I’m going to say with confidence that most of us are just confused. Confused about the laws, confused about the claims, and confused about the plants themselves. But for all kinds of people, from war veterans to doctors to families just searching for support, the issue of cannabis deserves to be discussed.

So today, to mark the famous national holiday on 4/20 (I’m talking about National Lima Bean Respect Day! Whaddya think I was talking about??), let’s take a quick trip down cannabis lane. No, we aren’t going to get into the nitty-gritty about the laws, fragmented research claims, and social and political issues; we’re going to start with the very basics. And maybe later, if the interest is out there, we’ll spend more time with this topic. Because when we have a better understanding of the conversation taking place, we are able to make the best health and wellness decisions for ourselves and our families—and that’s what it’s all about, right?

But for now, let’s clear up one of the most fundamental aspects of cannabis as it relates to aromatherapy. And that is: what in the world is the difference between Hemp Seed Oil, CBD, and THC? Time to break it down…

The Plant

Gloved hands harvesting cannabis

Cannabis belongs to the genus Cannabaceae, which is a big family of flowering plants. Another familiar member of this family is Humulus lupulus, or hops, which has famously been used worldwide as a beer ingredient for hundreds of years.

Cannabis is a dioecious plant, which means that there are both male and female plants that rely on each other for pollination. There are monoecious cannabis plants as well, which means they contain the characteristics of both male and female plants and pollinate between themselves. But this is a rare find that happens under pretty particular situations.

So what difference does the gender of the plant make? All the difference, actually!

Male plants, with their fibrous tissues and tall limbs, is where preferred hemp comes from. Throughout history, hemp has been used to make clothes, paper, rope, shoes—all kinds of things. Fun fact: both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were drafted onto hemp paper!

Female plants, on the other hand, are shorter and stockier. This doesn’t make them good for fibrous purposes, like hemp, but they do have their own unique characteristics. It’s from the female plants where we get nutritious hemp seeds from. And it’s from her small resin glands, called trichomes, where THC synthesizes from. So when we hear the word “marijuana,” you should know this typically refers to the female cannabis plant. Fun fact: the term “marijuana” originated in the 1930s to incite a fear of cannabis by relating it to the immigration of Mexican refugees after the Civil War. Actually, that wasn’t really a “fun” fact…

There are three main strains of cannabis, called Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis. From these strains, there are hundreds of subspecies strains, all of which can be bred to produce different effects. We won’t spend a lot of time on this, just know that there are hundreds and hundreds of different subspecies strains of cannabis.

So now let’s get into a bit of what this plant can offer us and help clear up some confusion!

Hemp Seed Oil

You’ve probably heard about Hemp Seed Oil before. This gem is part of our carrier oil collection! Ours is made from the seeds of the female Cannabis sativa plant, but rest assured that the seeds contain absolutely no THC component, despite being surrounded and protected by blossoms carrying trichomes. The seeds are cold-pressed at low temperatures to produce a lovely dark green oil that has a slightly nutty scent.

You can use the carrier oil alone or alongside other carriers and essential oils. It is a natural, non-GMO whole food product that is very nourishing to the skin and hair due to its high content of omega fatty acids, proteins, and vitamin E. Again, there is no THC, CBD, or any other cannabinoids present in Hemp Seed Oil.

THC (tetrahydrocannabinol)

THC is what gets you “high.” There’s really no reason to sugarcoat that. It is one of two of the most well-known chemicals found in cannabis (the other being CBD) and is really the culprit that gives cannabis its mixed reputation and uncertain future. But what exactly is THC?

Like stated above, females have trichomes. These are microscopic protrusions comprised of a stalk and a head that kind of resemble tiny, clear mushrooms. They are actually really neat looking:

Trichomes on a cannabis plant

These little guys appear on the surface of buds, leaves, and (though in a much less amount) the stalk. THC synthesizes in the heads of these trichomes. When inhaled or consumed, THC molecules bind directly to CB1 receptors in the body. CB1, or cannabinoid receptor 1, is abundant in the brain. It is part of our endocannabinoid system, or eCS, which runs throughout our bodies (brain, glands, and immune cells to name a few places). The eCS runs a massive amount of our life, and has an influence on our sensations of pain, our mood, our memory, and our appetite. It helps keep us in balance by sending neurotransmitters all over our bodily parts to make sure that everything is running smoothly. If something is off, our eCS helps rebalance it by instructing certain receptors to adjust your feelings and thought processes.

Anyways (sorry if I lost anyone there!), THC goes right to the CB1 receptors, stimulating parts of the brain that respond to pleasure and releases our happy-brain chemical called dopamine. All said and done, you end up experiencing the infamous “high.”

CBD (cannabidiol)

Unlike THC, most CBD comes from the male cannabis plants, the hemp-makers. So you’ll notice right there that the potent psychoactive elements from THC are not going to happen if you consume CBD. They’re often not even coming from the same gender of plant and may even be from different strains. What does this mean? CBD will not get you high. Not even a little.

CBD does not bind to cannabinoid receptors the same way as THC. It acts more on CB2 receptors, which are much more dispersed throughout the body than CB1 receptors, which are located primarily in the brain. And instead of attaching directly onto the receptor, CBD impacts them indirectly. It does this by activating other receptors and signals throughout the body, like TRPV1 receptors, which are involved with inflammation and pain regulation.

And we can’t forget about CBDs involvement with the so-called Bliss Molecule, or anandamide, a neurotransmitter that plays a part in helping us feel happy and have a sense of well-being. Funnily enough, anandamide is also found in chocolate! Maybe that’s why we love it so much…

Oh, and CBD contains a lot of beta-caryophyllene, an endocannabinoid system stimulating terpene that is known as a potent anti-inflammatory agent.

And while CBD is working hard in your body by influencing your endocannabinoid system, what do you get to do? Sit back and relax! CBD works to make an impact on your eCS system to help relax muscles, reduce inflammation, ease feelings of stress and anxiety, and so much more! It is developing quite a reputation for effectively relieving both short term and chronic pain, and reducing symptoms associated with anxiety and depression. It does all this with absolutely no psychoactive side-effects.

You made it!

If you’re still reading—congratulations! You made it to the end. This is a lot of information to learn, though in reality it barely even scratches the surface on the subject of cannabis. Hopefully, this broad overview on Hemp Seed Oil, THC, and CBD cleared up some misconceptions you may have had or taught you something new.

  • As a beginner, this article answers all my questions about hemp seed oil and hemp milk. I started seeing these companies launch these products and I tried them out. I absolutely LOVE hemp milk but I didn’t know whether they are safe and how they relate to the marijuana plant.

    This article helped answer all those questions.

    Thank you for doing that.

  • Wonderful information!! I didn’t know there was a female and male!! Can’t wait to try your Cbd oils.

  • So much to learn~forgive me but I am still unclear about how to USE the products you sell. Will keep reading. I am an avid applier; I love to gain benefits rubbing and massaging oils on my skin. Thank you for the background though! Truly starting my learning!

  • Went back and read again with PTs launch of products. Learned difference between full and broad spectrum.

  • I’ve done studies about this topic myself and you are writing the blog in a great, understandeble way. Thank you for educating <3

  • Great Stuff.. It seems, you have researched a lot before posting the blog. Thank you for sharing such a important information, as rarely people know this use of CBD. I know about CBD but not aware the CBD can be use in this way as well.

  • This blog post is AMAZING! Thank you for taking the time to combine all this information in one blog post. We are truly blessed to have open minded, and caring individuals at plant therapy!

  • I noticed you said “MOST” CBD comes from the male plant, but how do you distinguish which type of male produced which product? Do companies have to report this or can they just give the general name of the strain? Do they even have to report that?

    I found this information very helpful. Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Amanda!

      When companies are dealing with CBD, they do not track the strain of the plant the way the THC industry does. For CBD purposes, what counts for the product is the dosage of CBD and the percentage of THC (and that it’s under the legal limit), not the specific strain. I hope that helps!

  • First of all I would like to say that I love that this blog came out on 4/20. Plant therapy is awesome! I have been wanting to try cbd oil for my son I did not know that it was an anti inflammatory. Thank you for all the information. There are so many places to get it that I haven’t yet. I would love if you guys carried it because then I would know where to get it.

  • Thank you so much for this article very informative! I did not know! I use hemp seed oil a facial oil it is wonderful~

  • Great Information! Very helpful. I use this in my pain lotion and I can so tell how much this helps. Thank you for always making such great products!

  • Very informative article. With all the misinformation on this topic, I appreciate the way it is written! Made it easy to understand!

  • I really want to try this as something new. But, my biggest concern is how the oil smell like. I cannot stand the smell of cannabis products and worry whether the “nutty” smell of Hemp seed oil may alike those.

  • Thank you PT for this very informative and helpful article !My boyfriend suffers from chronic back pain brought on by a car accident and his job. Were looking into CBD for pain management for him. The hemp oil sounds like it would be a good carrier oil.

  • This was one of the most effective, concise writings on the differences between hemp, THC, and CBD. Excellent information and very useful. Thank you!

  • I knew the basic differences among the three but I didn’t know how the THC, CBD, etc was derived from the plant. Very helpful! Thank you!

  • Thank you so much for this blog post! What a great start to learning about the differences! I have a full spectrum CBD oil that I’ve been using for the past few months and it’s helped so much with anxiety and even helped settle our stomachs while we had the flu! It’d be awesome if plant therapy started carrying a CBD oil that wasn’t so expensive because we all know what a great quality your products are.

  • Thank you. Thank you for breaking down the facts and providing an easy to understand explanation.

  • I love this blog. It explains the difference so plainly. I printed it and took it into work with me…a Pharmacy that sells CBD oil. I only wish we had test reports showing that our CBD has less than .03% THC…there is always a chance for cross pollination. I do not need my husband testing positive on a random drug test.

  • Wow! What a fantastic article! Extremely informative, understandable and easy to read. I hope there is a sequel that discusses the difference between hemp essential oil and hemp seed oil benefits. I hope PT begins to offer Hemp Essential oil. Thank you!

  • Very educational well written blog. I look forward to reading the blogs and trying out the different ways to use PT products.

  • Very grateful for this helpful, clear and informative blog post. I really feel like I better understand the difference now. I truly hope PT starts offering CBD oil in the near future! Thanks for all you do!

  • Great info and a lot of it i already knew but i did learn more which makes it easier for me to explain to people when they ask me about my CBD Oil. I do CBD Oil for pain and inflammation and it really does work, you just got to find a reputable seller which i have and am very thankful for. I will have to buy me some Hemp Oil next time i am in. Thank You Plant Therapy for all that you do in making life a little bit easier to live with all of your oils you provide to us.

  • Thank you for such an informative and helpful article on what can be such a touchy subject for some. Hopefully more information like this, will continue to take the fear out of using these amazing natural products!

  • Great easy to understand article…I especially liked concerning THC, that It helps keep us in balance by sending neurotransmitters all over our bodily parts to make sure that everything is running smoothly. If something is off, our eCS helps rebalance it by instructing certain receptors to adjust your feelings and thought processes…very interesting!

  • Interesting read. I purchased some Hemp oil during the carrier oil sale last month and have really enjoyed the product.

  • I have chronic pain daily, I have wanted to try CBD oil to help with that. But the company I work regular drug test. And if I they find 1 nanogram of THC I would loose my job, as chance I am not willing to take. Thank you for a bit of basic knowledge on this subject that is unbias. We don’t often get that from other companies.

  • Thank you for this! CBD has become so popular in skincare lately and I appreciate my favorite oil company doing its part in keeping us all educated.

  • I honestly had no idea that hemp and cannabis were the same plant, so thank you for clearing that up, along with easy to understand explanations of the differences, and effects. Thank you, Plant Therapy, for education we can use.

  • Thank you for putting together this “dummy proof” article on the differences. It actually pushed me into further research to how this all works to help pain/inflammation. VERY INTERESTING! Thank you!

  • Thank you for a simple to understand clarification between the 3 things! I, too, would like to see PT come out with a CBD EO

  • Thanks for this article, it’s very informative and helpful. I’m anxiously awaiting more information on CBD oil (possible risks and contraindications). I have a rare disease and some of “my people” swear by this to ease their symptoms, but I’ve also read some conflicting information that would suggest that it could make our condition worse. Would love to be able to get the bottom of this issue with some solid fact.

  • Very helpful! Thanks for all your he information. It helped clear up some confusion! Looking forward to more posts on the subject!

  • I wanted to buy the hemp seed oil of PT when the carrier oil sale was on, but hesitated because I am uncertain what the “nutty” smell of this oil will be like. Is its smell anything like the infamous product from the flower and leaves? Very thankful if someone can answer this for me. Great blog as always, very informative.

  • This is a very interesting and informative blog post. Thank you for breaking down the difference between hemp seed oil, THC, and CBD!

  • This was a really interesting an informative blog post. Thanks for breaking down the differences between hemp seed oil, THC, and CBD.

  • I use Hemp Seed oil from Plant Therapy as the carrier oil in my pain blends. It has made a world of difference!

  • A really interesting article. One question I have is would the use of CBD oil show up if given a drug test? It sounds like an amazing alternative to nsaids for pain.

    1. Kathy, CBD technically should not show up on a drug test, since it is the THC that is being tested for. However, we encourage you to reach out to the company you purchase your CBD from to ensure that theirs is a pure product 🙂

  • Great article. I thought it sounded like what I had read before. I love Elizabeth Ashley, her books are so informative. I have not read this huge tome of hers in full, but, in bits and pieces. Her information on the effects of all parts of the cannabis plants is amazing.
    You did a great job putting it in an understandable nutshell!
    I love Plant Therapy Hemp seed oil, t is one of the two carriers I use the most. I love it in pain blends, I love it in lotion bars, it gives such a pretty color to them, and I love how it makes my skin feel.
    Thank you for so much information packed into a bite sized article. Great reading!

  • I have been wondering about the differences and how cbd can come from the same plantand not have THC. Your post laid it all out there, and I trust the aromatherapist at Plant Therapy that it was researched well! It is a well written and informational unbiased approach to the different cannabis oils and Thank you!

  • With all the confusion surrounding this topic, the clarification is much appreciated. I do love hemp seed oil, it’s actually great on grilled corn!

  • I started using a full spectrum cbd oil in my diy bath bomb recipe and it for sure helped my back pain. It works great alongside essential oils for relaxation and pain relief. This article explains it all really well. Again thanks for such a great blog.

  • Someone who sells mlm oils told me that copaiba is almost identical to CBD and that it’s actually stronger and works better on pain than CBD. Is there any truth to this? Seems unlikely.

    1. Deanna, our aromatherapists here do not find any meaningful connection between the two EXCEPT that Copaiba, like the CBD molecule, is FULL of beta-caryophyllene. Beta-caryophyllene is a potent anti-inflammatory agent that interacts with cannabinoid receptors in your skin. When this happens, skin cells produce beta-endorphin, one of the happiness hormones. Additionally, research has found that beta-caryophyllene reduced the inflammation and neuropathic pain response without showing signs of severe side effects or tolerance with prolonged treatment. However, beyond that similarity, there is not much research to support the idea that Copaiba and CBD are “almost identical.” They have very different chemical profiles overall and asserting they are interchangeable isn’t backed by anything more than hearsay. That’s not saying Copaiba isn’t a *FANTASTIC* EO to help with discomfort, but I absolutely wouldn’t say that it’s identical or even better than CBD. Perhaps once CBD becomes more mainstream there will be more available research comparing the two side-by-side in their entirety and we will know more! I hope this helps! 🙂

    2. Very informative and easy to understand, in addition to being very informative At the
      I hope plant therapy looks into cbd products.

  • P.S. I use PT Hemp Seed Oil above all others. I love it for pain blends, and more! After reading this, I will add to my facial serums, also.

  • This article contained information I had not read previously. Thank you for the brief, yet thorough comparison of Hemp Seed Oil, THC and CBD. I wish Plant Therapy would produce/market a Cannibis/Hemp EO. Only one other EO company does, that I’m aware of. It is a powerful pain reliever, although pricey. I’ll keep watching for Hemp EO to come to PT!

  • This a great informational article, especially since a lot of companies try to convince you why their product is better than others. Thanks for keeping us informed of the differences.

  • Im so glad you did this blog post. For awhile, these terms were so interchangeable. Its nice to have this info so easily accessible!!!

  • As a distributor for a CBD oil company, I am very excited to see this article and will be sharing it on Facebook. It clearly and simply explains the differences that could help people realize the safety in using CBD and Hemp Seed Oil – to take advantage of their many benefits. Thank you.

  • Yes yes!! I concur with many others here, would love it if Plant Therapy could carry CBD oil!! Works great for seizure control. Frankincense works great as well!!

  • I would love if Plant Therapy would carry CBD infused oils or lotions to mix with essential oils. That would be wonderful! I use CBD infused honey and green tea and I love it. Definitely helps with my tension and anxiety, as do essential oils. I could only imagine combining the two.. a match made in heaven! Definitely consider CBD products for the future, Plant Therapy!

  • Finally a non bias informative article that I can learn from and rely on! There is so much inaccurate information about this subject and I’m happy to finally see some real knowledge being spread! Thank you!

  • I’m always getting asked these questions on what is the difference & now I finally have a link to send everyone that asks! Such great information thank you so much plant therapy

  • I really appreciated this post. I’ve heard about CBD but never knew how effective it was. I hope PT explores this as an option.

  • Great Info! I use CBD oil for my Anxiety and it’s very helpful. Hemp Seed Carrier Oil is my daily moisturizer.

  • This is fantastic and clears a lot up! Has me curious though if plant therapy may be coming out with their own line of CBD oil soon! I know I’d order!

  • Thank you, Plant Therapy, for providing this trusted resource. There is certainly a lot of confusion on the subject. Although I’m probably not personally going to use any cannabis products due to a few personal reservations, it is very helpful to me to better understand the separation in the products. You never know what situations may arise that may present themselves to review and consider products that contain these types of ingredients, so it is very good to know what resources are reliable so that one can trust making a highly informed decision about usage.

  • I thought CBD came from Cannabis Sativa and THC from Cannabis Indica, not from male/female plants of the same spices.Thanks for clearing this up.

  • thanks so much for putting this info in a concise form that I can understand – I trust PT and the knowledge you so freely share with us

  • I always wondered what the difference was and what CBD really is. This was a great start in the right direction for me. Now I at least have a general idea! Thanks 🙂

  • Thank you for the information! I have been wanting to try CBD oils for various reasons and would love to try hemp as a carrier.

  • This is one of the MANY reason I love PT!! You all go above and beyond to keep us informed on all things and you always do it with credibility!! I would love to see more info on this topic and would love, love, love to see PT offer more in this line! I only buy from a company I trust, therefore I only buy from PT!!

  • Steve here I use CBD oil mixed with Rick Simpson’s oil eliminated prostate problems eliminated restless leg syndrome eliminated night terrors I sleep a full night of sleep totally1

  • After 9 years of debilitating severe chronic pain for which morphine was the only source of relief, I did a lot of research into CDB and CDa. After trying various dosages, I have now found that 10mg capsules three times daily has reduced morphine intake by 80%. I can now leave my home, go shopping, etc.
    I still need some morphine and I know that CBD is not a cure but it has given me my life back and brought me back from the edge of suicide by inadvertently overdosing to Ease the pain.

  • Thank you so much Plant Therapy. I have been researching CBD companies for a little while now and not one of them has anything that is purely black and white to the difference of it. I really hope that you will someday carry a CBD/THC free oil or products someday that we can use and trust. I have traveled the MLM road and all it did was drain my purse. You are a totally trustworthy company that I will not falter from.

  • Thank you for this great article and thank you for making the information clear and easy to read. I look forward to learning more about this topic and I know the articles you will post will be coming from sources I trust. There is alot of interest in CBD oil right now and I hope Plant Therapy will consider adding it to their line.

  • If I may say….. there IS AND with THC…with 0 restrictions or monitoring, people are selling CBD with all.sorts of things in it, including pesticides. I have a CBD store…please, ensure that you ONLY buy 3rd party, lab tested oils. I’ve seen anywhere from 7%-53% THC in CBD oil. Make POSITIVE that you k kw what you’re buying.

  • This is such a great article!!! I have family members that utilize both and THC and CBD for various medical reasons and there are so many people that are still so misinformed!!!! This is extremely well written!!! Thank you Katrina and PT for continuing to educate us on so many things!!!

  • I`d love for plant therapy to carry cbd oil. My physical therapist used some cream with cbd to help with my hand injury..it did give me relief that whole day. Will PT have it available soon?

  • Wonderful article, Katrina!!! This was written perfectly for readers who have never researched the subject. Very informative and broke down the information in a way they can understand! I would love to see PT offer CBD in the future.

  • Such timely information! Of course it’s the female plants that make you happy lol. My husband and I were just trying to figure out the difference between THC and CBD. Great article, thank you!

  • Such timely information! Of course it’s the female plants that make you lol. My husband and I were just trying to figure out the difference between THC and CBD. Great article, thank you!

  • Such timely information! Of course it’s the female plants that make you lol. My husband and I were just trying to figure out the difference between THC and CBD. Great article, thank you!

  • This is a great introduction! I have the Hemp Seed Carrier Oil from PT. I hope this blog means that PT will offer a CBD oil soon! Thanks for the information.

  • This was a very interesting read. I loved the Fun Fact about the Constitution paper being Hemp paper. I have wondered about these but never really researched them.

    Thank you for the information.

  • I would love more information on other cannabinoid containing oils. How they compare to CBD, etc. Are there other oils that also respond to the CB-1 receptors in the brain?
    I look forward to more blog posts about the subject.

    1. I am curious to know this as well. I personally am never going to be comfortable using cannabis products (plant science background here- I know too much about plant breeding programs and the nitty gritty of crop physiology and crop production ). But I would consider using alternate oils that affect the same receptors in the same manner.

  • CBD is so very expensive, somewhat due to greed, that it is out of the price range of sooo many Americans. . It is also DOSEAGE DEPENDENT. Each person has to discover the number of miligrams needed to relieve THEIR pain! I require 150mg per day for my chronic pain. The bvery best price I can find for that is $160.miligrams a month, mixed in so much olive oil that the nausea is bad. Plus no one wants to reveal the dosage when they sell. That is because it is so low! I am an RN so I can say that with ALL meds, dosage is key! Israel has been doing research on Marijuana for 60 years. They have proved reliable uses for Marijuana including cures for cancer! Check it out on the internet! Americans may get very angry when they think of loved ones who have died AND in great pain from cancer NEEDLESSLY! It is a national crime.

    1. Thanks, I’m a nurse too and we need to talk about why CBD is more expensive than THC. They both come from the same plant!

  • What a great article. I’ve been wanting the know this information but it’s all so convoluted out there. Thank you for writing this.

  • Thank you for posting this. It’s great to have information from a reliable source. Unfortunately I live in TN where not all CBD products are legal. However, I would love to try it if I knew I was getting it from a trusted supplier.

  • Wow this was incredibly informative. Thank you very much for writing this. I have been just diving into my own research about CBD oil. Please keep all the info you can coming in this oil. Thank you!!

  • Loved this article. So happy Plant Therapy is educating on this important subject. Very clear and organized information

  • As always great information Plant Therapy! Anytime I am looking for a credible source for oily information I always search your blog first. It is nice to know that I can trust the info has been vetting and is accurate. Thank you

  • Thanks for making this easier to understand, I’m going to a 420 fest today to try CBD oil. I was really concerned because I really thought there was THC in there and I’m not fond of the weird head feeling. But I really need help with pain, so I’m finally going to try CBD oil. I think it’s pretty cool it has beta-caryophyllene, so does Copaiba! Copaiba helps with minor annoying pain, but not deep bone pain, so hopefully the Male plant has more b-caryophyllene than copaiba.

  • Thank you! I’ve been researching CBD oil as a natural option and the information here was clear and concise. Very helpful, thank you PT!

  • I love that Plant Therapy is always striving to educate the consumer instead of just throwing out new products that you know will sell. I did know most this but did learn something new! Thank you

  • I really enjoyed this article! Definitely glad to see PT weighing in to spread knowledge! Wish you guys would sell a CBD line!

  • Great info! So much misleading informtion on this topic out there. This blog simplifies it and clears it up. Thanks for posting!

  • Thanks PT for the information on this very relevant, controversial topic. Looking forward to learning more!

  • This was so interesting! Thanks! I’m so behind the times and don’t know much at all about CBD products, though I see them advertised all over the place.

  • This was really helpful. I knew that CBD didn’t have the “high” chemical in it, but now I understand why and can explain it to others. Thank you.

  • Wow, very good information. I read info somewhere else and really didn’t get much info, but your explanation was great, and easy to understand. Thanks for keeping us informed.

      1. This is a wonderful, informative post! I have often been questioned about whether hemp products I use such as hemp seed oil and hemp milk are safe and how they relate to the marijuana plant. I never knew the answer to these questions except to say that they are a different part of the plant that doesn’t contain THC. No I truly understand the difference! Thank you, PT
