Common question: is hemp seed oil the same as CBD oil?
Although hemp seed oil and CBD oil are indeed derived from the cannabis sativa plant, they are NOT the same. There's much confusion about this difference, so we always encourage our customers to know what they're purchasing. In a nutshell, hemp seed oil is obtained by pressing hemp seeds, which contain low levels of CBD (usually less than 25 parts per million). On the other hand, CBD extracts are produced either directly from cannabis flowers, which reach up to 15% CBD. Since hemp seed oil is made by pressing hemp seeds which don't contain THC or CBD, it has no psychoactive properties.
What should you look for in a pure hemp seed oil? A soft and nutty aroma, green colour, and moisturizing properties, among other aspects.
