CBD oil uses the whole plant, while hemp oil comes from its seeds, but more recently, because of the growing CBD market, hemp oil derived from the seed of the plant is now more commonly referred to as hemp seed oil.
CBD oil is made from a variety of parts of the mature hemp plant including its stalks and flowers.
