What is Hemp Seed Oil?

Like cannabidiol (CBD) oil, hemp seed oil has become popular in a variety of markets. It is commonly used in cooking as an alternative to olive oil. The extract has also become a primary ingredient in many cosmetic products.

Hemp seed oil is often confused with CBD oil, however. Though both derive from the Cannabis sativa (hemp) plant, the two extracts are different.

While CBD is extracted from the leaves, flowers, or stem of the hemp plant, hemp seed oil is extracted from the seeds.

This oil does not contain CBD or any other cannabinoids. However, it is non-psychoactive and contains an abundant supply of nutrients and fatty acids that may support overall health and well-being.


Like CBD oil, hemp seed oil may support pain-related ailments. Many of these conditions, such as arthritis, are caused by inflammation. This oil contains anti-inflammatory properties, which may provide exceptional support for people experiencing chronic pain.


Hemp seed oil may support a variety of skin conditions as well. The nutrients and anti-inflammatory properties found in this oil may support conditions such as acne, psoriasis, rosacea, eczema, and more. 


Hemp seed oil may also support heart health. Though there is limited research on this topic, studies show that the extract may lower cholesterol levels and stabilize blood pressure. 


Research suggests that this antioxidant-rich extract may also support many neurological conditions, such as seizures, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and more.

For optimal benefits, oral consumption is recommended.
