Let's start off with the common characteristic of CBD and Hemp oil- both are derived from hemp plants, although the parts they are extracted from differs. Hemp oil comes from hemp seeds, whereas CBD oil comes from the stems, stalks and flowers of the same plant. CBD oil is used mostly for therapeutic purposes, as it consists of cannabinoids. On the other hand, hemp oil is used less in lotions and creams, and more as a traditional cooking oil. It is also beneficial for skin problems, such as acne and much more.
It is important to bust some myths regarding cannabis in particular. Cannabis has not had the best reputation in the past, but now we can see the trends change as more cannabis-based consumer products are being used. The issue arises due to legality, as mass consumption of cannabis in the form of smoking can lead to dangerous and drastic side effects. This is not true as CBD oil is extracted from a non-psychoactive hemp plant.
Hemp oil too is non-psychoactive as it contains no cannabinoids but for CBD oils, manufacturers and companies label the products according to their safety levels and dosage. Namely, there are three types of CBD oil labels you should be looking out for Isolate, full-spectrum, and broad-spectrum. From isolated to broad-spectrum, the spectrum ranges from pure CBD to the most impure (having other cannabinoids).

Again, there's no need to worry about the toxicity of CBD and Hemp oil though, as these do not have threatening psychological effects. The labels are just there to mark the intensity levels of cannabinoids. The infographic below will introduce you to a few more benefits and myths revolving around these two, along with their comparison.
