What is the difference between CBD oil and hemp oil?
It is important to note that "cannabis oil" or "CBD oil" is a product made from cannabis (usually in the form of a CBD-rich extract derived from the leaves and flowers of the cannabis plant, which may include plants classified as industrial hemp) and a botanical oil (such as canola, olive, grapeseed or hemp seed oil).

Hemp seed oil differs from cannabis oil in that it is derived from pressing the grain or seed of the hemp plant (processed similarly to other oilseeds, such as jojoba) and contains very little THC (at most 10 ug/g THC) and a negligible amount of CBD
