Unlike its cannabis counterpart, hemp oil is one of the most popular types of CBD sold today for many reasons.

  1. It is not illegal to consume or buy thanks to the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill which legalized hemp product production and use nationwide.
  2. Hemp oil does not contain THC, giving it virtually no side effects to use.

What is Hemp Oil?

Hemp oil, first and foremost, is NOT the same as regular CBD or cannabidiol. Hemp oil is produced using the stalks, leaves and flowers of the hemp plant. Hemp oil contains a much higher concentration of CBD than its cannabis counterpart, making it even more beneficial for those looking for faster relief from illness symptoms.

What is Hemp oil used for?

Hemp oil is used for a variety of reasons, more so than regular CBD. Some of the things hemp oil is used for include:

  • Skin conditions-such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, lichen planus and acne rosacea
  • Support brain function
  • Support healthy heart function
  • Natural pain relief
  • Ease muscle tension


Again, same as with regular CBD, there still needs to be proper research conducted on hemp oil to say conclusively that it can be used to treat a variety of illnesses. However, using hemp oil versus regular CBD does have its benefits. Before using hemp oil, be sure to check that it won’t have any interactions with your current medication and that it comes from a reliable and safe manufacturer.
