Is PCR hemp oil the same as CBD oil

DID THE HIPPIES AND BOB MARLEY KNOW ABOUT THE “OTHER” BENEFITS OF HEMP?

While the word “hemp” normally conjures visions of happy-go-lucky hippies in the 1960’s or Bob Marley, more recently a variety of cannabis (or hemp) by-products have gained popularity as beneficial medicinal alternatives for a variety of issues. You have to wonder in the 1960’s if they really knew about the other benefits the cannabis plant offered.

For what has been a taboo (and obviously illegal) subject over the years, with hemp products coming to such prominence in everyday life in 2020, many people are seeking information to find out what exactly PCR Hemp Oil is.

Is this form of Hemp Oil the same as CBD Oil? How can these oils help you in your everyday life? Is it safe? We will have a look at what exactly Hemp Oil is, some of its benefits, as well as the differences to CBD Oil. 

WHAT IS HEMP OIL (PCR)?

As you might have guessed, PCR Hemp Oil comes from the cannabis (hemp) plant. More specifically, it is extracted from cannabis plant seeds using ethanol (which means a lots of work goes into one little oil bottle). 

Here is the most interesting part though… the term PCR (or phytocannabinoid rich) just means it has a lot of cannabinoids in it. Although it is deemed ‘PCR’, you will not get high from PCR Hemp Oil though, so sorry if you were looking to try it for that reason.

WHAT CAN PCR HEMP OIL DO FOR ME?

Hemp Oil has a range of benefits (see, we know the hippies were onto something!)

  • It is great for overall health
  • Moderates oil production on skin
  • Moisturizes and soothes inflammation in the skin
  • Great for brain health
  • Has anti-aging properties for the skin (now we know why the Baby Boomers look so good!)

It has also been shown that PCR Hemp Oil can also assist with anxiety and depression. Guess that is why the hippies were so happy?

IS HEMP OIL THE SAME AS CBD OIL?

Yes and no. CBD Oil is from the flowers, leaves, and stems of the cannabis plant, while Hemp Oil comes from cannabis seeds. There are several differences between the two if you are looking to choose what is best for you and your situation:

  • Most importantly is the CBD content, which is nearly non-existent in hemp oil.
  • PCR Hemp Oil is a better quality
  • PCR Hemp Oil is better for overall general health while CBD Oil is better to support a variety of issues including depression and anxiety.
  • PCR Hemp Oil has an earthy taste and smell, while CBD Oil tends to have those specific tastes removed 

Basically, to answer the question is PCR Hemp Oil the same as CBD Oil? No.

IS PCR HEMP OIL LEGAL AND WILL IT MAKE ME HIGH?

For those worried about the tetra ‘TCD tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), or the element that provides the “high” of marijuana, you have no need to fear. You will not get high from Hemp Oil as the TCD element is less than 0.3% (if that). It is also perfectly okay to take the both PCR Hemp Oil and CBD Oil together without any side effects.

Plus, you won’t be pulled over by the cops and have to explain your hidden bottle of Hemp Oil, as it’s 100% legal!

In 2020, PCR Hemp Oil is a buzz word for alternative medicine, and it does offer a range of benefits to support your everyday health and wellbeing (or of course if you want to be a hippie). Wonder what Oil option the hippies or Bob Marley would have selected?
