A variety of plant oils are used in daily life: almond, hemp, olive, coconut,  and the range of beneficial properties of each oil attracts people. Some oils can be useful not only in cooking but also in cosmetology and well-being. For example, CBD and olive oils. Let’s talk about olive oil and hemp oil, what is distinguishing them. 

Shortly about CBD oil 

CBD oil is derived from the cannabis plant and this oil does not typically cause a high because of the low level of THC in its compound.

This quality makes CBD an appealing option for those who are looking for relief from pain and other symptoms without the mind-altering effects of cannabis or other side effects related to some pharmaceutical drugs.

CBD oil comes from the flowers, leaves, and stems of the hemp plant and needs to be lab tested to approve low levels of THC.

CBD oil and products have a lot of advantages and benefits for human well-being and health. You may learn more in our previous Blog articleTop 6 Advantages of CBD Oil. 

Briefly about Olive oil 

Olive oil comes from olives, the fruit of the olive tree. Olives are a traditional crop of the Mediterranean region. Oil is made by pressing whole olives.

It can be used in cooking, cosmetics, medicine, and soaps. Originally it came from the Mediterranean, but today, it is popular around the world.

Depending on the way of production you may see different types of olive oil:

  • Virgin 
  • Еxtra-virgin
  • Cold-pressed
  • Oils with natural, fresh color and scent

Let’s compare the taste

Many people say that CBD oil tastes something like olive oil or other plant oils. But they have different taste shades. 

  • Olive oil has a vegetable-like flavor reminiscent of olives  
  • Hemp oil tastes earthy, and it feels nutty as well. Cannabidiol extract shouldn't taste very grassy, but a little bit of chlorophyll flavor is to be expected in full-spectrum products.

Crucial Fatty Acids

Hemp and olive, both are important sources of EFA - essential fatty acids. But there is a strong difference between the compound.

  •  Olive oil is mostly monounsaturated fat, which means it is high in the EFA omega-9.
  •  On the other hand, CBD is a more balanced oil when it comes to EFAs, it contains a 3-to-1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3. As not a lot of foods contain omega-3s, which are important for brain and skin function, hemp oil may be a beneficial addition to your diet.

What about cooking? 

Well, we have some news for you - hemp oil can not be heated otherwise it will lose its Omega3s or they can be damaged because of the high temperature. So, the only way of using CBD oil in food is to drop it into a prepared dish. 

And olive oil is the most used oil for cooking.

Nutritional value in comparison

CBD oil is often considered one of the world’s healthiest oils so don’t skip this fact. If you want to change your diet for better skin, hair and brain work - CBD oil would be a good match. 

Talking about skincare

Olive oil and hemp seed oil are both useful to skin health, but in different ways.  

Olive oil is packed with healthy vitamins, fats, and antioxidants, and these components can contribute to healthier-looking skin.Olive oil soothes and lubricates the skin, making it a good external facial oil for all skin types. But olive oil is not able to solve skin problems.

CBD oil, on the other hand, may be more helpful to use externally if you suffer from dermatitis, eczema and swelling, as it has anti-inflammatory properties. CBD oil can also help to avoid wrinkles, all the useful information regarding anti-aging with CBD youmay read in our Blog article.
