What is Hemp Oil?
Hemp oil is a cannabis oil derived from industrial hemp, (the word cannabis is the Latin genus name) that has significant amounts of cannabidiol (CBD) contained within it. Our Hemp CBD products and extracts are derived from the leaves, stalks and flowers of industrial hemp, so they could be considered CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp derived CBD oil, CBD-rich cannabis oil, or simply hemp extracts. Again, cannabis doesn’t mean marijuana but is the genus name and general umbrella term which all forms of marijuana and hemp fall under. The form of cannabis we use for our hemp oil and extracts is industrial hemp; we do not sell marijuana.
