Today, CBD cream and hemp oil cream are sold almost everywhere, which can hinder a consumer’s ability to find trusted, reliable, evidence-based information on the differences between topicals and creams derived from hemp.
The Truth About Hemp Creams
The quick and simple answer is that hemp creams made from hemp seeds generally contain zero CBD. Even large retailers like Amazon.com are known for promoting products made with hemp seed oil, which is simply labeled “hemp oil” to confuse people with hemp oil products containing CBD. That means your best bet is to do your research on brands and really read the ingredients. True CBD cream will mention terms like CBD Oil, CBD Isolate, Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil, etc on the ingredients list, rather than Hemp Seed Oil, Hemp Seed, and other similar terms alluding to the fact that it’s made from CBD inert seeds, rather than the CBD, terpene, and flavonoid rich areola (flower) part of the hemp plant. With many retailers and brands intentionally misusing the phrase Hemp Oil to mean Hemp Seed Oil, it’s a good idea to clarify with the retailer, or find one that mentions some of the above terms or is clearly a trusted CBD company like Design Wellness or others.
