Is hemp oil the same as CBD oil?

What are the differences between Hemp oil vs CBD oil?


Hemp extract and hemp oil are derived from the hemp plant, which is characterized by having less than 0.3% of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The hemp extract can be taken from the seeds, stalk and in our case the flowers of the hemp plant. On the other hand, the hemp oil, also known as hemp seed oil, comes from pressing the seeds of the hemp plant and does not contain cannabinoids (CBD is a cannabinoid). 

CBD oil is different from hemp oil in that it originates from different parts of the hemp plant. The plants are bred for CBD and contain higher amounts of this cannabinoid. Similarly to hemp extract and hemp oil, CBD oil is non-psychoactive.

CBD is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does not produce a high feeling after use.


Companies that manufacture CBD products use different methods to extract the compound from the plant.  The varying diffusions result in a range of CBD types.


There are three types of CBD, containing different compounds and concentrations:


  • Full-spectrum: Includes all parts of the cannabis plant. Full-spectrum products contain less than <0.3% THCTrusted Source.
  • Broad-spectrum: This contains most of the cannabis plant compounds. Unlike full-spectrum, broad-spectrum products contain trace amounts of THCTrusted Source.
  • Isolates: Only contain CBD, with no other cannabinoids or THC. Products that contain isolate CBD may not produce any notable effects.


According to researchTrusted Source, both full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD can produce clinical responses when people use them. The results may not be due strictly to CBD. Instead, a person may experience what is known as the entourage effect; this occurs when several compounds combine to cause clinical effects.  As such, CBD products may only work because of a combination of compounds from different ingredients.


Federal law allows the use of CBD containing less than 0.3% THC. However, not all states allow the sale of CBD. A person should check their local laws before obtaining CBD. [State CBD Law Link]


A person should look for independently tested products. We at Kingdom Harvest provide a Certificate of Analysis (COA) [LINK], which shows what is in the supplements.
