Hemp Seed Oil vs CBD Oil: What’s The Difference?

June 12, 2022

Typically, both CBD oil and hemp oil originate from the hemp plant, a non-psychoactive cannabis plant. As a result, it typically does not cause intoxication. However, many consumers mistakenly believe that CBD or hemp products will get them high, when in fact it is the marijuana plant—hemp’s psychoactive cousin—that can induce mind-altering effects.

Since the approval of the first cannabidiol (CBD)-based drug by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) consumers have become increasingly interested in the benefits of hemp seed and CBD oils

Did You Know?

THC is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis that produces the high sensation. While the cannabis plant has high THC levels (up to 28%), the hemp plant’s THC concentration does not exceed 0.3%. Thus, products derived from the hemp plant are unlikely to create a “high” and are mainly used for medicinal purposes.
