A: Many people use the terms hemp oil and CBD oil interchangeably, but in reality, they are not the same. Although they all come from the same plant (the Cannabis sativa), they are quite different. CBD oils are comprised from the leaves, flowers and stalks of the hemp plant, and is created by extracting and isolating the CBD compound. While hemp oil has many benefits, taking it does not provide the numerous benefits of CBD.
Hemp oil, also known as hemp seed oil, is extracted solely from the seeds of the hemp plant and pressed to create the oil. Hemp seed oil is often found in skin care products due to its moisturizing, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The oil contains a variety of vitamins and fatty acids that could help protect the skin from premature aging.
