Hemp oil is made from industrial hemp and contains a whole range of unsaturated fats, such as omega 3 and omega 6. The trace particles of THC and CBD however are minimal. In the rare case that CBD or THC are found in hemp oil this resulted from plant material that remained on the seeds. During the production of CBD oils or cannabis oils, hemp oil is often used as an additive to help support the complete effects. There are also CBD oils that are created with from an olive oil base.
Especially in the USA the term “hemp oil” is well known and is generally used for everything that has been extracted from the hemp plant. Therefore, the term hemp oil can also be seen as an umbrella term.
In Germany, the term “cannabis oil” is used to describe an oil which does not fulfil the local requirements for a CBD oil. The difference between CBD oil and hemp oil mainly is due to the existing restrictions due to legal constraints. You can find out more about this in our Journal.
