The Differences Between Hemp Seed Oil and Hemp CBD Oil

With the recent buzz around legal hemp, the wellness market has been flooded with goods like “hemp seed oil” and other hemp products that don’t contain CBD, writes Becky Garrison. What specifically are the benefits of these products and how are they used?

According to Joy Beckerman, principal at consulting firm HempAce International, these hemp seed oil and hemp-derived CBD products are completely different and have little to do with each other. “What we have here is hemp seed oil and hemp extract, which people often mistakenly call 'hemp oil,’” she says.

Calgary leads the country in cannabis retail as city grapples with costs

Calgary is leading the country in cannabis retail with 24 licensed pot shops — more than twice as many outlets as the next highest jurisdiction — despite the province’s decision last fall to stop issuing further store licences.

“We’ve had remarkably little problem with the retailers here,” Mayor Naheed Nenshi said Thursday. “We have 24 private retail outlets in Calgary, which is by far the largest in the country.”

A California-based company has released chewing cannabis

A new cannabis company, Cannadips, is selling a line of chewable cannabis pouches modeled after old fashioned chewing tobacco, or snus. Composed of monk fruit, essential oils, and a dry cannabis tincture enclosed in a small coconut fiber pouch, the cannabinoids absorb through the mouth’s lining and directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the liver altogether, allowing for a faster high that also doesn’t last as long.
