What's The Difference Between Hemp Oil and CBD Oil?

There has been a lot of confusion between “hemp oil” and “CBD oil” over the past few years, as both oils have become more popular. However, they are completely different from one another.

Hemp oil or hemp seed oil is obtained by cold pressing hemp seeds from the industrial hemp plant. Hemp oil is used for nutritional purposes, used in food products, and in skin care.

Hemp oil is high in healthy fats, high in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and is considered a nearly complete protein.

There is no CBD in the hemp oil you can purchase from a store.

Unfortunately, there has been a mass of misinformation circulated with hemp oil being incorrectly called CBD oil. Many companies have caused confusion by calling their product some variation of "CBD Hemp Oil" alluding to the oil having pain-relieving effects, etc. Come to find out, there wasn't any CBD in those oils.


CBD oil can be extracted from the industrial hemp plant (or flowering cannabis) in a few different ways as talked about here.

It's important to know that hemp oil or hemp seed oil is not the same as CBD oil. While hemp oil is nutritionally beneficial, it does not contain the same chemical components as CBD oil.
