Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp seed oil is made by pressing the hemp seeds until oil is secreted. It’s sometimes used interchangeably with hemp oil, which is a full-spectrum oil that contains plant matter and other compounds. It’s important to note that neither of these oils contain cannabidiol (CBD).
When it comes to cannabis extraction, CBD isolate is the second, more refined state after a distillate. In this form, CBD is isolated from the other compounds. When CBD is extracted, it takes the form of a white powdery. Isolates can be up to 99% pure, which makes them the purest form of CBD concentrate.
Some manufacturers sell the isolate in this powdered form, but the taste is bitter. It must either have flavoring added to mask the taste, or it can be added to strong-tasting food and drink.
To understand what full-spectrum is, it’s best to first know what a distillate is. A distillate is taken from a hemp plant with a high percentage of CBD when the end result will be CBD products, and it’s the substance that results after the first extraction from a hemp plant.
Full-spectrum is when the distillate contains all of the cannabinoids present in the whole hemp plant. These cannabinoids include CBG, CBC, CBN, and trace THC.

Broad-Spectrum is similar to Full-Spectrum, only all the naturally occurring THC has been fully mitigated while still leaving the other cannabinoids (CBD, CBG, CBC, and CBN). There is 0% THC in broad-spectrum CBD.
Nano-emulsified CBD (aka Nano CBD) is processed to make it easier for your body to absorb the CBD and is used in many edibles, oils & hemp products.
