What is the difference between Hemp & Bioactive CBD Oil
You may have noticed that we currently offer two types of CBD infused Oils. One is the classic UK manufactured Hemp seed oil and the other is the Bioactive CBD Oil from the EU. Although both are ‘CBD Oils’ the two are very different. It is worth understanding the differences between the two before deciding which is best for you. So, here is the difference.
Our UK manufactured CBD oil is made from organic cold pressed hemp seed oil which is fantastically rich in essential proteins and fatty acids. The seed itself is made up of about 32% of an edible oil that contains 80% of the essential acids. These include Omega, 3, Omega 6, Linolenic acid, alpha & Gamma-linolenic acid and stearidonic acid.
Omega 3 is extremely important for the human metabolism and is known to reduce inflammation and the potential of cancers and cardiovascular disease while increasing cognitive ability and brain functions. Similar to Omega 3, Omega 6 also plays an essential role in brain function, normal growth and development. It also helps to regulate, skin and hair growth, maintain healthy bones, regulate metabolism and maintain the reproductive system.
Linolenic acid is a fatty acid that (like Omega 3 & 6) cannot be produced by the human body and must be acquired through diet. The consumption of Linolenic acid differs in individuals however, it is essential in the make-up of cell membranes and there has been some evidence to suggest that it helps to prevent cardiovascular diseases. Finally, Stearidonic acid (also known as Moronic Acid) is known to have anti-viral properties and is part of the process of producing anti-HIV medicines.
All of these properties make Hemp oil a brilliant supplement for concentration, cognitive ability and things like hair growth. Like most oils, hemp oil is not soluble in water but is easily consumed and can be applied topically. It is a very durable and versatile CBD oil product.
The Bioactive CBD oil is specifically designed for consumption rather than being applied topically or added to other ingredients. Unlike the CBD infused hemp oil, it is water soluble so can be easily mixed with tea, vegetable or fruit juices to make the consumption of CBD as easy as possible. Everything in the Bioactive oil is exclusively derived from plants and is a multi-spectrum product that contains a whole host of different cannabinoids and compounds that enhance each other to promote health and wellbeing. This is sometimes referred to as the Entourage Effect.
Curcumin, Myrcene, Caryophyllene, Pinene, Limonene, Linalool, CBD, CBC, CBN and CBG are all included within this product which are organic compounds found in a multitude of different products, foods and vegetation. Caryophyllene, in particular, is associated with stimulating the CB2 receptor (in the Endocannabinoid System) and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antinociceptive, neuroprotective, anxiolytic, antidepressant and antialcoholism activity in mice. Studies are trying to prove whether these effects are shared in humans. CBD, CBC, CBN and CBG are all cannabinoids which bind with the endocannabinoid system.

This product is 100% natural and all the ingredients have been selected so that they can work together and interact with the endocannabinoid system.
