Since CBD oil and essential oils work differently, there are different benefits someone might be seeking that one oil offers over another. CBD oil works within the body to help regulate and support the body’s health, while essential oils work primarily through smell to help improve functions in the brain.

Aromatherapy, also known as essential oil therapy, is a holistic healing method that utilizes plant compounds to promote and enhance health. The plant compounds used for aromatherapy are called essential oils. These oils capture the plant’s scents and flavors, or the essence of the plant. Aroma oil is a diluted version of essential oils, as it sometimes only contains 2% plant extract and base oils. Essential oils typically contain 93% plant extract and base oils. These oils are used in a number of ways to improve health.
What is the Difference Between Essential Oil and CBD Oil?
Essential oils are not meant to be consumed, unlike CBD oils. Inhaling the scents from essential oils interacts with the limbic system in the brain that contributes to human behavior, emotions, memory, and smell. When applied to the skin, some of the oil is absorbed into the skin, but the research on the benefits of essential oils being absorbed into the skin are lacking. Applying concentrated essential oils to the skin can sometimes cause irritation, like burning, itching, and redness. It’s important to use essential oils that contain other base oils, creams or lotions that are meant for skin use to avoid irritations.
Unlike essential oils, CBD can be consumed and this is where the benefits of CBD oils come into play. Once CBD enters the body, it works with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which is a set of receptors that help regulate many of the body’s functions. These receptors are activated when cannabinoids are introduced and give the endocannabinoid system a boost to help regulate its functions. The endocannabinoid system helps regulate sleep, mood, everyday stress, joint function, appetite, and more. When CBD oil is taken regularly, it can help minimize discomfort, boost energy, and improve overall health.
CBD oil is another health-trend many people seem to claim has benefits similar to or better than essential oils. They both seem to provide a sense of health and well-being, but what are the differences and similarities between these two oils? Read more to see the details on how they compare to one another.

As you can see, CBD, hemp essential oil, hemp seed oil and THC/marijuana/cannabis oil are very different from each other and vary in their legality. That’s why it’s so important to understand the differences before you consider using them.
CBD oil is an oil extracted from the whole plant and flowers of the hemp plant. As the name suggests, it contains a high concentration of CBD, but again, none of the psychoactive THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) that can get users ‘high’ when they use marijuana.
What about cannabis oil/marijuana/THC?
Both of these powerful essential oils can bring a wide variety of health benefits including reduced levels of stress and anxiety, improved sleep, reduced pain and better digestive health. Users of these two oils even report a vast improvement in overall health and happiness.
