Cannabis Sativa is the scientific name for the plant as a species. This means that you can find a variety of different strains of the same plant species.

One of the most well-known strains is Industrial Hemp. This is where Hemp and CBD oil comes from. Another common strain of the Cannabis Sativa plant is marijuana. Industrial Hemp is different from marijuana because it produces a much higher level of CBD and a much lower level of THC.

The Farm Bill Act in the United States has allowed Industrial Hemp to be grown for production and use. When it comes to the marijuana plant, whether you’re allowed to do the same with it varies depending on which state you’re in.

There are many companies out there that only use the hemp strain in their products, which means that you won’t find any trace of THC.

Hemp Oil

Hemp Oil is derived from the seed plant Industrial Hemp. It is also called Hemp Seed Oil. There are a lot of regulations around the production of Hemp Oil, which include stringent testing when it comes to CBD and THC levels.

Hemp oil is commonly referred to as a superfood because of all its health benefits. This includes Vitamins and Omega-3s. Due to many of its naturally occurring ingredients, Hemp Oil can also help with health conditions like chronic pain and even stress.

You can also use Hemp Oil to improve the condition of your skin and hair as well. Hemp Oil is safe for both pets and humans.


CBD oil is often referred to as Hemp Extract. This is a naturally occurring extract that includes cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and other healthy phytonutrients that you can find in the hemp plant.

When manufacturers use a CO2 method of extraction, you can guarantee that your CBD oil comes without any solvents. This gentle extraction method produces some of the purist CBD oil you can find.

You can also use this extraction process to eradicate even trace amounts of THC in your CBD oil, which is what a lot of consumers prefer.

Cannabis Oil

Cannabis Oil is extracted from the marijuana plant. Because it is derived from the marijuana plant, it naturally contains high levels of THC and much lower levels of CBD than CBD oil.

Cannabis Oil that’s been extracted from the marijuana plant is actually still illegal in many American states, which means that the production of it is not regulated. It can be used both medicinally and recreationally.
