Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil – What’s the Difference?

Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil – What's the Difference?

Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil banner

Nowadays, there’s no shortage of plant-based wellness products on the market – and CBD and Hemp Oil are two of the most prominent compounds you’ll recognize in standalone or infused products. While you may have heard of both, do you know what separates Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil? Allow Nature’s Script to educate you on the key differences between these two compounds and how they are utilized in our premium Hemp Extract products.

Overview – Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil

Hemp Oil

The term “Hemp Oil” is confusing because it can be used to categorize any oil derived from the Hemp plant. Hemp Oil may refer to the oil extracted from the entire plant: its seeds, leaves or stalk. Generally, Hemp Oil is made from hemp seeds and is known as Hemp seed oil.

Hemp seed oil is considered a carrier oil and contains unique properties. However, it does not contain any active CBD. You can find Hemp seed oil at most nutritional stores for purchase.

 

CBD Oil 

Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is a prevalent cannabinoid compound derived from the Hemp plant. CBD Oil comes from the leaves, flowers and stalks of the Hemp plant. Since CBD Oil can be obtained from various parts of the Hemp plant, it’s also recognized as Hemp Extract.

At Nature’s Script, we use CBD and Hemp Extract interchangeably when referring to our products.

For CBD to be considered legal in the United States, it must be extracted from the Industrial Hemp plant and contain less than 0.3% THC – the federal legal limit. Due to such low amounts of THC, CBD Oil is non-psychoactive and won’t cause a “high.”  You can find CBD Oil products online, at vape stores, gas stations or CBD-specific shops.

How Are They Extracted?

Hemp Oil

Hemp seed oil is extracted solely from the seeds of the hemp plant. The Hemp seeds must be cold-pressed and processed to yield oil. The resulting Hemp seed oil can then be added to a variety of commercial products, including food, cosmetics, lotions and more.

 

CBD Oil 

There are a few different extraction methods to obtain CBD. CBD can be derived via Supercritical CO2, hydrocarbon solvent, steam distillation or natural solvent extraction. Each method has its pros and cons and varies in safety and effectiveness. CBD Oil can be infused into a variety of products, including edibles, topicals, pet products and more.

What Are Their Benefits?

Hemp Oil

The seeds from Hemp contain vital nutrients beneficial to the human body. Hemp seeds are rich in protein, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids your body does not produce. You’ll find the same fatty acids – Omega-3 and Omega-6 – in Hemp seed oil as you would in fish, nuts and plants. These fatty acids are crucial to your overall wellness. They may benefit your metabolism, skin, cardiovascular health and prevent oxidative damage from free radicals.

 

CBD Oil 

While the chemical composition of CBD is not fully understood, many believe CBD Oil carries an array of beneficial properties. CBD’s properties show promise thanks to the biological system in your body known as the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS is a neurological system comprised of cannabinoid receptors that regulate functions such as immune response, appetite, pain, inflammation, mood, sleep cycle and more.

Your body naturally produces cannabinoids, but CBD may encourage your body to produce more cannabinoids to ensure the proper functioning of the ECS. Evidence even points to CBD carrying anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. While this information is preliminary and not concrete yet, CBD Oil seems to have plenty of benefits while having little to no adverse side effects.

Summary – Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil

 

When shopping for Hemp Oil and CBD Oil-related products for your health, it’s essential to understand their differences. If you see a product labeled as Hemp Oil, it does not necessarily mean it contains hemp-derived CBD. If you are unsure, always check the back of the product for its supplement facts.

 

At Nature’s Script, you’ll find both Hemp Extract (Cannabidiol) and Hemp Oil in our premium CBD Oil. We use Hemp seed oil because it acts as a carrier oil and allows your body to receive the maximum potential of CBD. We obtain both our CBD and Hemp seed oil from Industrial Hemp grown on American farms.

 

Every Nature’s Script product is proudly made in the USA. We ensure the highest quality Hemp products through careful cultivation, manufacturing and lab testing.

 

If you are looking to optimize your lifestyle and enhance your overall wellness, try our Hemp Extract Oil today to achieve total relaxation and comfort.

Rob Gronkowski Sheds Light on CBD’s Potential

Rob Gronkowski Sheds Light on CBD's Potential

Rob Gronkowski CBD

Most people won’t experience the physical and mental pain that former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski endured throughout his nine-year NFL career. But many are getting acquainted with the natural compound he says is essential to his recovery: CBD.

The three-time Super Bowl champion has suffered multiple herniated discs, a handful of concussions, two forearm fractures, a torn MCL/ACL and several other injuries that finally culminated into his retirement on March 24, 2019.

Gronk’s decision to retire at 29 years old came as a shock to most, who believed he would rehab and return to the field as he had done previously.

Last Tuesday at a press conference in New York City, a sincere and heartfelt Gronkowski fought back tears when talking about what he was going through.

"I was not in a good place. Football was bringing me down, and I didn't like it. I was losing that joy in life... I could play right now if I wanted to play. I’m feeling good. Physically, I could do it. Mentally wise, desire-wise, it's not there..." – ESPN.com (August 27, 2019)

Gronk vocalized his truths about life after football while also shedding light on CBD, a product that he said was essential to his recovery. CBD, a natural and nonintoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis and hemp, has helped Gronk regain his physical health, he said.

"For the first time in more than a decade, I am pain-free," Gronkowski stated in front of reporters.

Although Gronkowski’s benefits from CBD are subjective, his story gives hope to other players looking for an alternative to prescription pain killers and opioids, which are traditionally handed out like candy by NFL medical staffs.

Given Gronk’s loveable personality and platform, he is the perfect advocate to battle the NFL’s policy regarding the use of CBD products without penalty. The NFL currently views CBD as it views marijuana – a positive test for marijuana will result in a fine or suspension.

While more concrete evidence is needed to persuade the NFL and FDA, millions are already finding comfort and relief thanks to CBD and Hemp Extract products. Topical rubs infused with CBD and menthol are encouraging recovery and alleviating aches and pains. Other products such as CBD Oil and CBD Edibles are show promise in relieving mental stress and promoting positive wellbeing.

CBD, or Hemp Extract, has gained popularity over the past few years due to the acclaimed benefits from its users. More and more people are branching out to try CBD-infused products because of its therapeutic potential and limited risk of adverse side effects. CBD products can be bought and sold throughout the U.S. as long as they are derived from Industrial Hemp and contain less than 0.3% THC. Before any claims can be made about the benefits of CBD, additional research and evidence is needed. Until then, it’s up to the prospective CBD consumer to do their research and find out what is reliable and works for them.

In other major sports, CBD has emerged on the PGA Tour as golfers Bubba Watson, Lucas Glover and Charlie Hoffman have CBD sponsorships. All of them have praised CBD, claiming they receive better sleep and recovery. The PGA is allowing players to use and partner with CBD brands but warn about using supplements that are not FDA-approved. The NHL is another league making strides to allow CBD as an alternative to traditional pain killers. Cannabis products are presently legal in 28 of the 31 NHL cities and players will not be punished for using CBD. The NFL, NBA and MLB have yet to change their stance against CBD, let alone understand its use.

If battered NFL superstar Rob Gronkowski is finding relief through CBD products, the future looks promising for the natural compound and its potential to benefit others on and off the field.

CBD Lab Testing

CBD Lab Testing

CBD Lab Testing

CBD products are still largely unregulated, leaving many consumers skeptical about the potency and quality of their products. At Nature’s Script, we make sure our products go through rigorous CBD lab testing to guarantee the product you are using has the correct potency labeled and does not contain harmful chemicals or toxins. Here’s why our lab testing methods are superior to any other CBD company:

 

Quality

The quality of a CBD product starts with the souring of premium raw materials. Nature’s Script sources our Hemp Extract from reliable American farms that come with a certified certificate of analysis. The certificate of analysis provides information regarding the quality of our CBD, as well as the levels of pesticides, heavy metals and other residuals. This process ensures that our raw CBD meets our standards and is safe for human consumption.

 

Consistency

After we receive our raw CBD certificate of analysis and it meets our quality standards, we can manufacture our products. Throughout our production process, we conduct internal reviews for consistent quality control. Our products are manufactured in-house, which gives us the ability to review and test all final batches. Once they are approved, we send our final products to a third-party lab to verify their consistency. We publish our third-party test results online and make them available to you for transparency.

 

Repeat

We implement strict guidelines in the sourcing, production and manufacturing of all our CBD products so that they are the same every time. Our multi-stage lab testing validates the contents of our CBD and assures you that you are receiving a premium, potent product. Our thorough process allows us to maintain the quality of our CBD from the time it is extracted, stored and reaches your front door – every time.

All in all, we try to stay as transparent as possible to benefit your overall health and wellness. We will be adding QR codes to each of our products in the future. QR codes are scannable images that will take you to exact batch and date in which your product was produced. You can scan these codes from either your iPhone or phone application. QR codes also provide you with the quality and potency of CBD and other ingredients in your CBD product. Always check back for new information regarding our sourcing methods, extraction process, lab testing and new product launches.

 

Setting the Industry Standard

How Nature's Script is Setting the CBD Industry Standard

Setting the CBD Industry Standard

Within the past few years, the CBD market has flourished for growth and opportunity. Some have referred to CBD as a “miracle compound” due to its potential medicinal benefits that include calm and relaxation, better sleep, lowered stress, improved workout recovery and more. The knowledge of CBD’s therapeutic potential has created a vast demand for the natural, non-psychotropic compound. With little to no FDA regulation, though, the CBD market has seen an influx of CBD companies only looking to cash-in rather than uphold specific standards. When it comes to a product that can assist your health, you want to know how the product is made and the precise ingredients within it. Nature’s Script has been at the forefront of the CBD industry, providing Hemp education and transparency while also producing premium CBD products. Read below to learn why our 5-step process sets us apart from every other CBD company and how we have been setting the CBD industry standard.


Setting the CBD Industry Standard

Setting the CBD Industry Standard

Superior CBD

From the very beginning, Nature’s Script has partnered with experienced American Hemp farmers. We source our premium Industrial Hemp from California, Colorado and Kentucky farms that only use sustainable practices. They use eco-friendly methods that maintain healthy soil. This means that our Industrial Hemp grows in soil free of pesticides, heavy metals or any other harmful chemicals. The Industrial Hemp plants we source all contain a certificate of analysis to ensure they meet our quality standards.

Look out for companies who source their Hemp from outside the United States. While importing Industrial Hemp from overseas is an alternative option, it is much harder to uphold the quality and reliability of the plant.


In-House Manufacturing

At Nature’s Script, we manufacture all products in-house in our 45,000 square foot production facility. Our team of compliance and manufacturing experts follows strict quality control measures throughout the entire production process. Our quality control measures include the testing, weighing, calculating, and review of our raw materials (Hemp Extract) and final products. We have multiple checkpoints set up throughout our in-house manufacturing process to maintain total quality control. A Near-Infrared Spectrophotometer (NIR) positively identifies each material. We guide the production of each product via an official Batch Production Record (BPR) of a previously approved Master Manufacturing Record (MMR). These records outline product formula, as well as the total amounts of each material to be weighed. Refraining from outsourcing our manufacturing processes limits our risk of shipping delays and product errors.


Consistency in Lab Testing

While we have multiple quality control checkpoints, Nature’s Script still conducts multi-stage lab tests. As mentioned above, all of our raw materials include a NIR scale to identify their quality and potency. After product production, we conduct in house lab tests as well as third-party lab tests that you can find published online. Our lab tests give you concreate data regarding the validity and superiority of our CBD products. All products are accurately labeled containing their desired ingredients and milligram concentration. Whether it’s our CBD Oil or CBD Gummies, you can check online or on the packaging for the correct labeling.


Shipping & Customer Service 

We do our best to try and provide the utmost transparency as a premium brand. Nature’s Script Blog is dedicated to an assortment of articles regarding product education (“How Do I Take CBD?”), CBD legality (“Is Hemp Oil Legal?”) and up-to-date information on the industry (“Can I Fly With CBD?”). Our customer service team is one of the most knowledgeable in the industry and always available. Don’t hesitate to call our friendly staff, as they genuinely look forward to informing you about the benefits of CBD. We also offer multiple shipping methods.

At Nature's Script, we're setting the CBD industry standard and we intend to continue paving the way for the industry in the future. We take pride in being able to provide you with the therapeutic potential of the Hemp plant through our premium CBD products.  CBD contains many beneficial properties that may provide greater overall health and wellness. We understand that Hemp Extract products will affect everyone differently, but we hope you give us a try and join us on a journey to total relaxation and comfort.

1.) Exercise – Take some time in the morning or early afternoon to walk or play fetch with your furry friend. Letting your pet exercise before the festivities start may help tucker him out. Tiring your pet out will allow him to sleep through all the commotion and reduce potential outbursts.

2.) CBD Pet Oil – Giving your pup CBD Pet Oil may significantly benefit him on one of the loudest days of the year.

4.) Stay by His Side – The best way to limit your pet’s anxiety this Independence Day is to stay by his side. If you’re hosting a party, keep him close with a leash or in a secure area you can easily monitor. If you do choose to stay home during the firework celebration, let your best buddy remain by your side. Your assurance and love will help him understand that the loud noises are not harmful to his safety.

Have a Wonderful Fourth of July

It’s important to note that more pets run away on the Fourth of July than any other day of the year.

What is Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency?

What is Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency?

Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency

While the human body has been studied for over hundreds of years, it wasn’t until the discovery of Endocannabinoid System (1992) changed the way we look at how our bodies perform some of their primary functions. Early research of the Endocannabinoid System shed light on the significant roles cannabinoids play in our bodies. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that act on cannabinoid receptors, or the Endocannabinoid System and alter signals the brain receives. It is understood that the Endocannabinoid System is responsible for regulating our appetite, metabolism, pain, immune response and more, so what would happen if our bodies did not produce enough cannabinoids? The theory of Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency suggests that we may be more susceptible to prolonged inflammation, mood swings, and diseases.

What is the Endocannabinoid System?

The Endocannabinoid System’s name originates from its etymology. “Endo” comes from the word “endogenous,” which means growing from within and “cannabinoid” comes from “Cannabis.” The ECS, or Endocannabinoid System, is a collection of several mechanisms (primarily endogenous cannabinoids) that together create a neuromodulatory system.

The components the ECS comprise of are:

  • Endocannabinoids the body naturally produces (2-AG and Anandamide)
  • Cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2
  • Enzymes that create and destroy the cannabinoids

Neuromodulatory system is an intricate way of saying the ECS functions as a group of neurons that use chemicals to transmit information throughout the body. Ultimately, your body produces endocannabinoids that activate your CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors work in unison with our central nervous system. CB2 receptors work with our immune cells. These receptors are in the brain, organs, connective tissues and glands. Enzymes create and breakdown endocannabinoids upon the nervous system’s demand.

Homeostasis

Together, the ECS’s parts work in harmony to help maintain the body’s homeostasis. In order to sustain your body’s balance, the ECS regulates mood, pain, inflammation, sleep, immune function, body temperature and more. If your body does not produce enough endocannabinoids to any one of these areas, you may experience higher levels of inflammation and stress, sleep disruption, poor immune health and more.

What is Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency?

Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency is the theory that disorders develop due to the malfunction of the Endocannabinoid System. When your ECS does not produce enough endocannabinoids, it may cause an imbalance in your body, leading to mental disruptions and diseases. Common diseases linked to Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency are known as psychosomatic. Psychosomatic disorders occur when psychological factors cause physical symptoms. After understanding how the ECS functions, research infers that the ECS does have a direct relationship to potential psychosomatic diseases such as migraines, fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome. The ECS is essentially a bridge between body (organs) and mind (nervous system). When this bridge fails, it can lead to certain psychosomatic disorders. So far, research is in support of cannabinoid treatment helping to combat Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency and other treatment-resistant syndromes.

 

How Can I Prevent Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency?

While more research is needed to prove Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency, there is still credible evidence that points to the importance of the ECS. The most abundant neurotransmitters in the brain are cannabinoid receptors. These cannabinoid receptors can become active and more prominent when you introduce your body to phytocannabinoids – or plant-based cannabinoids - like Cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is a natural compound found within Hemp and can directly aid in the proper functioning of your ECS.

Introducing CBD or Hemp Extract products to your daily regimen may help influence the production of the body’s endocannabinoids. CBD products have become a hot commodity due to its therapeutic potentials. Testimonials from consumers report that CBD is helping to relieve their anxiety and stress, help with sleep deprivation, promote calm and relaxation and more. Nature’s Script offers a wide variety of premium Industrial Hemp-derived CBD products. From CBD Oil to CBD Pain Gel, we have all of your CBD needs.

Always check back for new updates and research concerning Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency and the ECS. You can visit Nature’s Script CBD blog for more information about CBD, its legality, safety and benefits.

Luckily, TSA has recently updated their carry-on policy, allowing you to fly with Hemp-derived CBD products. While the details regarding traveling with CBD products are still vague, TSA has opened the door to change.

Am I Allowed to Take CBD on a Plane?

Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) approval of carry-on CBD gives passengers another option to help combat their in-flight anxieties. Under the 2018 Farm Bill, products that contain Hemp-derived CBD are considered federally legal. Companies who produce Hemp-derived CBD products must abide by the laws and regulations the FDA has set in place thus far.

TSA only deems Cannabis products that contain less than 0.3 percent of THC acceptable. Approved CBD products include CBD companies that source their CBD from Industrial Hemp and certify that their products contain less than 0.3 percent THC through third-party lab tests.

If you purchase your CBD products from a transparent and trustworthy CBD company, you should have no worries flying with CBD.

*  Please note that the final decision rests with TSA officer on whether an item is allowed through the checkpoint. *

Why Should I Consider Using CBD for My Flight Anxiety?

CBD has the potential to deter your pre-flight jitters and restless mind. Did you know CBD has other potential benefits to offer when you fly? Here are three reasons why you should consider taking CBD before your flight:

Alleviate Aches and Pains

Not only does CBD have the potential to relieve flight anxiety, but it also can help lighten aches and pains that come with traveling. For instance, applying some CBD Pain Rub before your flight may provide you with pain relief and a more comfortable flight.

Total Relaxation

Getting over the fact that you’ll be on a plane for two-plus hours is half the battle. Utilizing CBD prior to your departure may provide you a sense of calmness. Attaining a relaxing state of mind before a flight can help reduce any nerves or stress.

Promote Restful Sleep 

If you travel for work, odds are you’ll have a few redeye flights. CBD promotes restful sleep and may assist in regulating your sleep-wake cycle.
