In this article, we will explain in a simple and very easy way what's the difference between hemp oil and CBD: there seems to be a bit of confusion around these terms at the moment.


CBD oil and Hemp oil both come from the Hemp plant.

CBD can be found in the leaves, flowers and stalks of the Hemp plant. These are the only parts of the plant where cannabidiol is found.

Hemp oil is also called Hemp seed oil because it is extracted from the hemp seed where very low or No CBD can be found.



CBD oil contain cannabinoids such as:

  • CBC
  • CBDA
  • CBG
  • CBN and much more
  • Besides, terpenes, the organic hydrocarbons contained in the plants' essential oils are found in our extracts

A combination of terpenes, CBD and other cannabinoids creates synergistic effect scientists call "entourage effect" that amplifies the therapeutic benefits of each component of the plant. In effect, the overall medicinal benefits of the entire plant outweigh the totality of its parts.

Cannabinoids (like CBD) are chemical compounds produced naturally by the hemp plant.


Amazingly, cannabinoids are also produced by the human body.

They're known as endocannabinoids (with Endo referring to internal or within the body).

We have endocannabinoid receptors in both our central and peripheral nervous systems.

They regulate various physiological processes such as:

  • sleep
  • appetite
  • mood
  • pain
  • stress response
  • and immune functions

Due to similarities in their structure, the cannabinoids contained in CBD oil interact with the endocannabinoid receptors in the body.

Several studies have revealed the use of cannabinoids for therapeutic purposes offers many benefits.

Many clinical studies have been carried to uncover the positive effects of CBD.

In several cases, customers feedback very positively.

They tested CBD oil for:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • arthritis
  • reduced pain
  • stiffness
  • and inflammation

Studies shows of those with multiple sclerosis, patients experienced an improvement in pain reduction, walking and muscle spasms when taking CBD.

A few scientific studies on the effects of CBD:



Hemp oil has a high nutritional value due to its healthy fats and mineral content.

Hemp seeds are rich in essential fatty acids like linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3).

They are also an excellent source of protein and offer vitamin E and other health-enhancing minerals, such as phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc.

Health benefits of Hemp oil:

  • Hemp oil contains fatty acids that can benefit skin health such as helping with acne, eczema, psoriasis. 
  • Hemp oil’s antibacterial properties inhibited the activity of various types of bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus.

Overall CBD oil health benefits are much higher as it contains all the cannabinoids.
