Spot the difference between CBD oil and Hemp oil.

New regulations by the Food Standards Agency

The FSA has recently announced that all CBD companies are to submit valid food applications by the 31st March 2021 for consumable CBD products. Great news! It will ensure products on the market are safe and are what they say they are. CBD suppliers will need to list ingredients on packaging. This will result in higher quality products.

At Broadies Supplements, we only buy from the most reputable suppliers and stock products with certified lab reports. This means that if a bottle says it has 100mg of CBD in, it has 100mg of CBD in it.

At the moment, because the CBD industry isn’t regulated, many products have misleading packaging and many outlets are selling hemp oil as CBD oil.

What is the difference between CBD oil and Hemp oil?

Put simply, hemp oil is made from the seeds of the hemp plant and can be used as a carrier oil (mix it with essential oils for massage), a cooking oil (at low heat), for salad dressings or use it to moisturise the skin. It is high in omega 3 and 6 and is anti-oxidant.  There is no CBD in hemp oil. It costs around £6 for 500 ml from your local supermarket.

CBD stands for Cannabidiol, a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant.[1] Thus genuine CBD products are made using this chemical taken from the plant. The oil comes in different strengths, usually 100mg-8000mg (this is CBD per bottle) in a 10-50ml bottle and can cost anything from £20 upwards. For information on CBD, please click here.
