Though many believe CBD to be the same as hemp seed oil, they are very different. The production of CBD involves extracting the oil from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant. The production of hemp seed oil involves pressing the plant’s seeds (a similar process to producing other seed oils like sesame or corn oil). Unlike CBD oil, hemp seed oil does not contain cannabinoids. Hemp seed oil has been sold at health food and grocery stores for decades because it is rich in fatty acids, and is used for cooking.
