The Crucial Difference Between Hemp Oil and CBD Oil

Hemp and marijuana are cousins in the plant world, but marijuana has a much higher THC content than hemp. Hemp oil contains low levels of CBD – typically less than 25 parts per million – while CBD oil can be up to 15% CBD. Because the plants are related, some unscrupulous sellers of hemp oil are trying to market it for its medicinal value, which is negligible.

The CBD oils being sold do not have a significant amount of CBD. You need about 400 mg and if they have as much as 1% (almost never) you would need 40 grams of it (a whole $40 bottle) for a single treatment. FDA tested them:

Hemp oil however has a lot of amazon reviewers saying it works tremendously for anxiety and tastes awful.


Thanks for update on the differences between the 2. Very helpful.

Hemp oil did no good so I purchased an inversion table from Amazon. I will receive it tomorrow.
