Did you know that incorporating all-natural hemp seed oil into your skincare routine can have stunning beauty benefits? The rise in hemp’s popularity goes hand-in-hand with the cannabidiol (CBD) boom. Both the wellness and beauty industries have recently experienced an increase in hemp use due to the change in legalisation in New Zealand.
But first things first, lets correct the common misconception of this current booming beauty trend. Although both CBD and hemp seed oil come from the same place, it is important for you to know the difference. Found in a variety of formulas, including creams, serums, and facial oils, hemp seed oil boasts an array of benefits to improve skin health with every drop, dollop, squeeze, and pump. Hemp seed oil is actually extracted by cold pressing the seeds of the hemp plant, and on the other hand, CBD oil is a resin excreted from the flower of the hemp plant.
Moreover, both CBD and THC are cannabinoids, which are the active components in the cannabis plant, and are often isolated individually for a more potent ingredient.
