The short answer is no. Hemp oil is not the same as CBD oil.

Hemp Oil actually means oil that is extracted from Hemp Seed. Importantly Hemp seed oil doesn’t have any CBD or other cannabinoids. It also doesn’t contain any terpenes because these compounds aren’t typically found in the seeds (they are in the flowers). Consequently it doesn’t have any pain relieving benefits, although it does contain health fats, Vitamin E and protein that can be nourishing and moisturising when applied to the skin.

CBD Oil actually means the oil that is extracted from the Hemp or Marijuana plant. It’s derived from the leaves, stalks and flowers as these parts contain all the active cannabinoids and terpenes. This is the one you need for any pain relief.
