The difference between Hemp oil and CBD oil

Hemp oil usually refers to hemp seed oil. It is made by cold pressing hemp seeds to extract an oil rich in essential fatty acids. Hemp seed oil does not contain CBD or other cannabinoids in more than trace amounts, but is high in vitamin E and omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. It has a nutty aroma and is used as a culinary or cosmetic oil. It is possible to have a ‘CBD infused hemp oil’ which would be a concentrated hemp extract dissolved in hemp seed oil.

CBD oil (cannabidiol) is a CBD rich oil made from a concentrated solvent extract of hemp flowers or leaves that is dissolved in an edible oil such as coconut, hemp seed, or olive oil. The most commonly used hemp extraction methods are either ethanol or CO2 extraction.
