Hemp Seed Oil vs Hemp Oil

*Note: Please read Hemp, Marijuana, Weed for clarification of hemp first.


Hemp SEED Oil is made from seeds of the cannabis plant.  Usually from industrial grown cannabis (i.e. hemp), these seeds are making a big splash in the health food consumer market in oil and seed form.  Seeds might be seen in granola, snack bites, or solo.  Hemp seed oil is purchased in a grocery store.


Hemp oil, (cannabis oil , RSO , FECO)  is currently being advertised to help kids with seizures.  This is made from trichomes of the cannabis plant. These plants are usually grown sinsemilla, or without seeds, by using just the female flowers.   This helps the plant put more energy into producing more trichomes where the medicinal properties of cannabis (cannabinoids) are stored.
