CBD oil is a supplement containing cannabidiol (CBD) extracted from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant that interacts with the body’s internal system which regulates balance and overall homeostasis.
Hemp oil, on the other hand, comes from hemp seeds and can be used for cooking and drizzling. CBD oil and hemp oil both come from the same plant, but they are two very different things with different uses and benefits.
Manitoba Harvest has been in the hemp business for more than 20 years. Hemp is our life. As the world’s fastest-growing hemp food company, we could talk to you for hours about how powerful hemp is.
Given that the Wide World of Hemp seems to have a lot of different ingredients, we wanted to clear up some confusion about CBD oil and Hemp oil, which are both made from hemp but are very different. How could you use these two different oils in your everyday life?
Cannabidiol (CBD), which comes from the hemp plant’s leaves and flowers, is one of many helpful chemical compounds found in hemp plants that promote overall health and balance. CBD interacts with the human endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate energy and keep the body in balance when stress is high.
For hemp oil, we need to look at another part of the plant: the seeds. Hemp seeds don’t have any CBD in them. Instead, they produce a carrier oil that is high in essential fatty acids like omega-3 and omega-6 when cold-pressed. This oil is similar to sunflower seed oil and jojoba oil.
How to Use CBD Oil
CBD oil sprays and tinctures are great ways to get the benefits of CBD in doses that fit your needs. Hemp Bombs makes its CBD oil as stable as possible by using Organic Coconut MCT Oil as its base. It’s easy to add to any food or drink (morning coffee, baked goods, smoothies, etc.). You can put it in a fruit smoothie or hold it under your tongue for 30 seconds.
With Hemp Bomb’s Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract oils, soft gels, and protein powder, you’re not just getting CBD. Each serving has 10mg of CBD as well as other cannabinoids and terpenes that work together (this is called the “entourage effect”). All of the skills and qualities of these phytocompounds work together and make each other better.

This superfood can be used in place of other oils in low-heat (below 300°F) recipes. It is made from plants and is healthy. You can put it in salad dressings and sauces, or drizzle it on vegetables, popcorn, pasta, or anything else that could use a light, nutty flavor kick.
Isn’t that pretty different? So to sum up:
CBD Oil has cannabidiol (CBD), a chemical compound that can help keep things in balance. You can enjoy it on its own or add it to food or drink as part of your daily health routine. In Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract, CBD works with other compounds from hemp plants to improve their health benefits.
Hemp oil doesn’t have CBD in it. Hemp oil is a superfood made from plants that can be used in salads, sauces, vegetables, or anything else. Hemp oil has a light, nutty taste and is full of essential fatty acids.
