What is Hemp Extract
Many people are talking about hemp, hemp extracts, CBD, and its benefits, but some people when they hear “hemp”, they always think about drugs, or . Lets’s open the door for you to learn more about Hemp.
What exactly is hemp?
Hemp, (Cannabis sativa), also called industrial hemp, is grown for use in many different products. Hemp is made into foods, health products, fabric, rope, natural remedies, and much more. Different parts of the hemp plant are used to make different products.
Hemp seeds are edible and highly nutritious.They have a high concentration of fiber. They also contain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. These fatty acids are nutrients that are important for heart and skin health.
Hemp is sometimes confused with marijuana. Hemp, however, contains only trace amounts of THC, the main chemical in the marijuana plant that makes people get "high." Because hemp contains little THC, it is grown for non-drug use.
What’ s the difference between Hemp Seed Oil and Hemp Oil?
The primary difference between hemp seed oil and hemp oil is the location they are derived from within the plant.
Cold pressing hemp seeds will result in the creation of hemp seed oil. Hemp seeds contain all 11 essential amino acids that the human body needs for optimal health and function.However, hemp seeds contain only trace amounts or potentially zero presence cannabinoids like CBD.That means that you won’t get any therapeutic effects from hemp seed oil.However, if you want to keep it stocked in your fridge, it can help support skin, hair, and nail health in humans and dogs.
Hemp oil comes from the hemp flower. Most CBD companies choose the phrase hemp oil as a primary product description.Because CBD is just one type of cannabinoid found in these products, “hemp oil” is often a better phrase to name a product.Considering hemp flower contains up to 120 different cannabinoids, hemp oil is a better title than CBD oil.Keeping this in mind, most products are labeled as CBD Hemp Oil, or Hemp Oil containing xx milligrams of CBD, cannabinoids, or hemp extract
Is hemp oil and CBD oil the same?
The main difference between hemp oil vs CBD oil, is that hemp oil has little to no CBD content. Hemp Oil is made by cold-pressing the hemp seeds into an omega-rich culinary oil. CBD oil is made by extracting the compound CBD from the leaves, flowers and stalks of a hemp plant. However, both hemp oil and CBD oil, have their own health benefits.
Hemp seed oil comes from hemp seeds only. It is not derived from the Cannabis plant itself. Hemp seed oil does not contain any psychoactive properties. You can not use it to get high. Hemp oil has unique properties and health benefits.
The Benefits of Hemp Oil
Hemp oil contains large amounts of omega-6 and omega-3 fats, which are two types of unsaturated fat s, or “good fats,” and all nine essential amino acids, the materials your body uses to make protein. Some studies show that its nutrients and minerals can contribute to better skin and heart health as well as reduced inflammation. It may contain properties that contribute to reduced risks of illnesses like Alzheimer’s disease and cardiovascular disease, though additional research is necessary.
CBD has been promoted as a treatment for a range of conditions, including epileptic seizures, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, inflammation, and sleeplessness. In the United States, CBD is marketed in food and beverages, dietary supplements, cosmetics, and tobacco products such as electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS)—products that are primarily regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). CBD is also the active ingredient in Epidiolex, an FDA-approved pharmaceutical drug.
Fewer Seizures：In studies, the CBD in hemp oil has been shown to reduce seizures in rare types of childhood epilepsy that are resistant to other treatments, Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. Regularly taking CBD can also reduce the number of seizures brought on by tuberous sclerosis complex, a condition that causes tumors to form throughout the body.
Reduced Inflammation：Studies have also linked the omega-3 fatty acids in hemp with reductions in inflammation.
Healthier Skin：Spreading hemp oil on your skin as a topical application can also reduce symptoms and provide relief for several types of skin disorders. One study showed that hemp oil can act as an effective acne treatment, though more research is needed in this area. In addition, consuming hemp seed oil was found to improve symptoms of atopic dermatitis, or eczema, due to the presence of the “good” polyunsaturated fats in the oil.
How Does CO2 Extraction Work?
The first step involves taking CO2 in its natural state (gaseous) and exposing it to extremely low temperatures at very high pressure. This particular process liquidates carbon dioxide,because gaseous CO2 cannot achieve a supercritical state, which is why it’s important to change its state from gaseous to liquid.
The second step is where CO2 goes supercritical,the fluid is exposed to even higher pressure and heated to an appropriate temperature. It is then subsequently pushed through a chamber that contains raw cannabis, where thanks to its properties, CO2 acts as a solvent and dissolves the oils while capturing the essential active compounds at the same time.
From there, the supercritical fluid is moved into a “separation vessel,” where it becomes an immiscible fluid thanks to temperature and pressure gradients. The final step includes the extraction of CO2 by letting it stabilize back to its gaseous state.
Careddi supercritical extraction machines use closed-loop extractions in order to re-use the CO2 rather than using a new batch each time.
Why Choose CO2 Extraction for Hemp Oil?
Supercritical CO2 extraction technology is a new separation technology developed in recent years. Let’s focus on its notable advantages:
1. It is safe and easy to obtain, non-flammable, energy-saving, non-toxic, harmless.
2. It is no redidual solvents and reusable
3. It needs low operating temperature.
With above advantages it is also called “green seraration technology”,which is more suitable for the separation and purification of physiologically active substances and ntural products.
