Hemp Oil vs. CBD Oil: What's the Difference?
Hemp Oil: It’s Straightforward
"By the Farm Bill’s definition, legal hemp products can contain up to 0.3 percent THC -- not enough to produce a psychoactive effect. Hemp seed oil is extracted from the seeds and used as a cooking oil, and in lotions and soaps. It contains no CBD or other cannabinoids."
CBD Oil: It’s Complicated
"What’s known as cannabidiol (CBD) oil is commonly extracted from the flowers of the hemp plant. But it can also be derived from a marijuana plant. Either way, its uses are typically more medicinal. Solid research on cannabis has been sorely hampered -- it’s a challenge to do big studies on a federally illegal substance. But a 2017 comprehensive review by the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine found good evidence for cannabis reducing chronic pain. Athletes have known this, using CBD products to manage pain and to lessen inflammation. Others use CBD for depression and anxiety. Some people give it to their pets to lower stress. Perhaps most concretely, last June, the FDA approved the first-ever CBD-based drug, Epidiolex, to treat seizures associated with two severe forms of epilepsy."
