Hemp (SEED!) Oil vs. Hemp Extract

Before we dive in too deeply to the difference between hemp extract, I want to make sure you know about << this post here all about hemp extract >>. It dispels the common myths and I hope is helpful to you!

The major difference between hemp seed oil and hemp extract is that the extract uses the entire plant rather than just oil from the seeds.


Uses for Hemp (SEED!) Oil

  • Amazing on salads, in place of olive oil (the flavor is super rich and nutty)

  • Rub it into your skin after a shower as you would lotion

  • Not used medicinally for deep healing

  • Use it for baking… it’s especially delicious with roasted and baked fall harvest vegetables like butternut squash!!


Vs… Hemp Extract Oil

  • Add a small amount to smoothies or gently cooked foods (or even just… in a spoon taking it like a medicine).

  • Not to be used as a cooking oil!

  • Used medicinally

  • Can be helpful for challenges related to joints, inflammation, pain, and even mood
