Well, we are here to tell you if it does and what else it contains, as well as much more about Hemp Oil! Is it good for you? What benefits does it contain? All the questions you may have about Hemp Oil will be answered for you in this article so keep on reading.
Before we start to investigate what benefits you can get from Hemp Oil, let’s first understand what exactly it is. Hemp Oil, which is also known as Hemp Seed Oil, is an oil that is widely used to help with health issues, especially common skin issues. Hemp Oil is packed full of essential fatty acids, some being Omega 3 and 6, both of which help soothe the skin when it is applied topically. It also contains gamma-linolenic acid, is high in vitamins B and D, and other nutritional antioxidants.
This Oil is largely made in the same way as other seed oils, by putting the seeds through a press. So, in this case, pressing the seeds of hemp plants – the oil derives from the seeds of the Cannabis Sativa plant. People will not get high when using hemp seed oil as it contains no tetrahydrocannabinol, which is otherwise known as THC.
If we are trying to find out if this oil contains CBD, it is best that we understand what CBD is too. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical found in the Cannabis sativa plant, also known as cannabis or hemp. Included within the plant are over 80 chemicals, known as cannabinoids. Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most famous ingredient in cannabis, which won’t be found in the same specific plant as CBD.
CBD is obtained from hemp, a form of the Cannabis sativa plant that only contains small amounts of THC, which eliminates the ability to get high. CBD will have slight effects on some chemicals in the brain, but these are very different than the effects of THC.
Due to these slight effects, CBD is known to help with a variation of health issues. A prescription form of CBD is used for seizure disorder (epilepsy) in certain parts of the world. CBD is also used for anxiety, pain, a muscle disorder called dystonia, Parkinson disease, Crohn disease, and lots of other conditions.
So, now that we know CBD is a really cool compound that helps with a bunch of issues, it would be great to know what the benefits of this substance are so that we can look out for it in products…
CBD is known to have a positive effect on certain health issues but there is also more to this amazing compound, below are a list of benefits experienced from CBD that have also been scientifically proved:

So, we now know that there are a huge bunch of benefits that come along with CBD, so let’s find out if it’s contained in Hemp Oil! Also, if you would like to read more about CBD oil then click here. There are many ways you take CBD, for example, you can vape it using CBD vape oil, you can ingest it orally via a tincture, you eat via CBD edibles, you can apply it using a CBD Topical or lastly, you can inhale it using CBD wax through dabbing or vaping.
To answer this question, we need to go back to how Hemp Seed Oil is made, which we went over earlier – Hemp Seeds are pressed to get the oil, the SEEDS, not the actual Hemp Plant. Due to the fact that it is only seeds we are pressing it means that it contains next to no cannabinoids such as CBD or THC.
Instead, hemp seed oil is very much what it says on the tin: an oily residue extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant. This extraction is much simpler than the process for CBD oil, and just involves cold-pressing the seeds, before filtering the sediment from the resultant liquid. The filtered oil is a deep green in colour, whereas CBD oil is a golden brown.
Hemp oil is super-rich in omegas (otherwise known as good fat) and has 25 times more omegas than olive oil. It has absolutely no trans fats (and 40% less saturated fats than olive oil). Just because Hemp Oil doesn’t contain CBD, it still has a whole bunch of benefits to it such as…
So, to conclude this article we have learned that despite Hemp Seed Oil being made from the seeds of the same plant that produces CBD, the actual Hemp Oil contains such a small amount of CBD in it that it barely counts. Despite this, there’s a whole list of reasons why Hemp Oil is still very good for you and the benefits that you will receive from taking it.
If you are looking for an oil that will provide you with the benefits that CBD gives, then we would suggest you go for a CBD Oil rather than a Hemp Oil. This is because CBD Oil is made by pressing the leaves and stalks of the actual cannabis sativa plant, which is very high in CBD and very low in THC. Preventing you from getting ‘high’ while still allowing you to experience all the wonderful benefits this beautiful plant has to offer.
