According to Medical News Today (MNT), CBD oil uses the “stalks, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant,” while hemp seed oil comes from only “the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant.”

While hemp seed oil contains little to no CBD, it is still full of nutrients and unsaturated fatty acids. Many people use hemp seed oil as a nutritional supplement because it is high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants. Hemp seed oil can be incorporated into baked goods and other foods, as well as clothing and fibers. Some support the use of hemp seed oil for treating constipation and gastrointestinal issues, or to manage skin conditions.
