When looking at multiple natural oils, there are two you are sure to come across: hemp oil and CBD oil. Although these terms are sometimes used interchangeably, they are different products that are used and consumed in their own way. Let’s get into the differences of hemp oil vs CBD oil.

One of the differences to consider when comparing hemp oil vs CBD oil is where the oils come from.
Hemp oil is derived from the hemp plant. Hemp plants are a form of cannabis sativa that is typically grown for industrial purposes. These plants contain low levels of cannabinoids including the two most commonly known: THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). The oil is extracted from the hemp plants by pressing the seeds they produce. This method of extraction is similar to how olive and coconut oil is obtained.
Since hemp seeds do not contain any THC, the extracted oil does not contain any as well. Trace amounts may potentially still be found due to plant matter adhering to the seeds during processing. However, modern commercial manufacturing decontaminates seeds by 99.99%.
Oils extracted from different parts of the hemp plant may contain some amounts of THC or CBD but still be labelled as hemp oil since it is made from hemp plants. These products must have that information printed on them. So, be diligent to read before purchasing if you are concerned about ensuring it is CBD and THC-free.
The important thing to keep in mind when thinking about hemp oil vs CBD oil is that even though CBD oil sometimes is extracted from hemp plants, it can also be extracted from other cannabis plants that contain higher levels of THC. Hemp oil is always extracted from hemp plants but can contain no CBD/THC (from the seeds) or high CBD/trace THC (from the resin glands).

Hello @Leah Murphy I would put it a little bit different. The Hemp Oil is made from seeds, it is very cheap and does not contain any CBD or THC therefore should not be confused with CBD oil which produced from whole hemp plant and flowers and typically contains high levels of CBD and low levels of THC and expensive.

CBD oil is also requires a carrier oil, the best carrier oil is MCT, but sometimes they use Hemp Seeds Oil as a carrier oil for CBD oil which is not optimal, but can be used.

Due to current regulations on CBD oil it is common when CBD oil is sold under Hemp Oil Drops nickname in order to hide CBD name.

Many bed sellers use this situation in order to sell Hemp Seed Oil without any CBD in it as CBD oil.

In summary, Hemp Oil (made from seeds) and CBD Oil (made from whole hemp plant) are two completely different products which should not be confused with each other.
