Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil vs Cannabis Sativa vs Industrial Hemp

Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil vs Cannabis Sativa vs Industrial Hemp

Premium Hemp Oil Drops

Information on each

Hemp Oil is also from the Cannabis Sativa plant but only the seed is cold-pressed to obtain the oil. It is also called Hemp Seed Oil.  It is not tested for CBD content but most likely contains a small amount as it is from the Cannabis Sativa Plant.  Hemp Oil is regulated in its production and is tested for THC amounts but is not tested for CBD amounts.  

Industrial Hemp Oil is also from the Cannabis Sativa plant and is the same as Hemp Oil or Hemp Seed OIl. Compared to cannabis Indica, cannabis Sativa (industrial hemp variety) has a much stronger fiber. This fiber can be used in anything from rope and blankets to paper. Marijuana fiber has a low tensile strength and will break or shred easily, making it a poor fibrous plant when compared to industrial hemp. Industrial hemp has low THC levels compared to marijuana specifically cultivated for personal psychoactive use. The reason for the low THC content in hemp is that most THC is formed in resin glands on the buds and flowers of the female cannabis plant. Industrial hemp is not cultivated to produce buds, and therefore lacks the primary component that forms the marijuana high. Furthermore, industrial hemp has higher concentrations of a chemical called Cannabidiol Oil (CBD Oil). 

Hemp Extract Oil* and Hemp Oil are from a different Cannabis plant called Cannabis Sativa.  Hemp Extract is made from the entire plant including leaf, seed and stem.  Most oils on the market selling as CBD oil are 97% or more Hemp Seed Oil, mct oil or vegetable glycerine and 3% Hemp Extract. This does not contain THC and is legal in all 50 states.

Hemp Extract- A Canadian hemp oil extract with naturally occurring terpenes, flavonoids, and other beneficial phytonutrients extracted from the hemp plant. This CO2 extracted hemp oil is free of harmful solvents and uses a gentle, low temperature, alcohol free extraction process that yields the purest form of hemp oil extract available. This clean oil extraction process yields a high quality extracted hemp oil retaining a broad spectrum of terpenes and other phyto compounds derived from the Cannabis Sativa industrial hemp plant like CBD Oil. This does not contain THC and is legal in all 50 states. 

Cannabis Oilis from the marijuana plant(Cannabis Indicas).  The Cannabis oil is extracted from the leaves of the Cannabis plant.  It contains high levels of THC and lower levels of CBD Oil.  Cannabis Oil is illegal in most states. It is used for medicinal purposes and as a recreational drug.  It is not regulated in its production. 

FAQ: Questions and Answers

Q: Is hemp oil the same as Hemp Extract or medicinal cannabis oil?

A: Both made from the same plant. Hemp oil is very beneficial containing a lot of antioxidants and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Hemp oil is normally pressed from the seeds of the hemp plant, which means it does not contain the same amount of cannabinoids found in medicinal cannabis oils which are extracted from the whole plant.

Hemp oil does have CBD,  normally less than 25 parts per million (ppm) compared to medicinal cannabis oil extracts that typically contain between 3% and 25% C B D.

Many manufacturers label their CBD products as hemp oil, and a lot of C B D Oil uses hemp oil as the carrier base oil which is what creates some of the confusion. 

Cannabis with low levels of THC under 0.3% and high levels of C B D is commonly called Hemp or Industrial hemp. Cannabis with higher levels of THC is sometimes called marijuana or weed. Industrial hemp is normally grown for its fibre and cannabis with high THC has been used medicinally or as a recreational drug far back into antiquity.

Q: Will I get “high” or fail a drug test if I eat hemp foods?

A: NO!  All of our Hemp is 3rd party tested to ensure there is no THC present. 

Q: What’s the Hemp Extract content in your hemp seed oil compared to others?

A: Our Hemp Oil is regulated to contain no levels of THC as per the legal limits of the State of Idaho. Our Premium Hemp Oil is also tested and contains no levels of THC. Our Hemp Oil and Premium Hemp Oil are both 100% from the Cannabis plant (save the Peppermint Essential Oil Flavoring and Stevia in our Peppermint option). We do not dilute or use any fillers such as Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT), Vegetable Glycerin, or other fillers.

    I suffer with migraines, fibromyalgia, and arthritis. I pretty much hurt anytime I move. I’m on a regimen of meds, but ordered the Virgin Cannibis Hemp Oil (off of Amazon) and have had it two days. I took 3 tablespoons a day, gagging it down. I couldn’t bring myself to take it today, but I didn’t notice a difference after the second day, and I suppose I would notice something. Was it too soon, or should I be trying a different product? I really need something to alleviate the level of pain during movement, as it’s causing me to be more sedentary.

    I am confused. I agree these oils may be legal at the state level in the U.S. The DEA has also stated they are not a controlled substance, but that does not seem to override the FDA’s position that CBD cannot be sold as a dietary supplement. Please advise. I understand the FDA issued warning letters about this in 2016

  • TK

    I have read that taking CBD oil may help in the reduction of the size of tumors (specifically brain tumors). I’ve been taking Hemp oil instead, as that’s what came up when I did a search for CBD oil on a popular website. (My first bottle was not flavored and tasted absolutely horrible. Next one was mint-flavored and tastes far better.) Wanted to know if Hemp oild would give me similar results as CBD.

    I used a “cbd tincture 250mg”. After about 3 weeks I started passing blood and protein in urine. I stopped and it cleared up. A couple weeks later I decided to try again and within 3 days it happened again. Could this be due to the type of oil I used or might I have the same problem with any oil I try? It was helping my hip pain and crohns. Thanks!

    I have Peripheral neuropathy with stabbing pains in my toes. I have eliminated the pain by using Hemp oil (sold by the quart-not concentrated, just cold pressed industrial hemp seed oil), as well as similar results using the more common Hemp oil concentrates that come in a 1 ounce bottle. I have not tried the oils that claim a high CBD %.

    Hi, where can I find Cannabis oil to ingest. I have a very large uterine tumor and was told taking cannabis oil will shrink it. I am tryig to avoid a major surgery. Thank you.

  • Pat

    Will Hemp oil help with my leg pain back pain sleep anxiety and depression? Neck pain…joint pain

  • Thomas Steilers
    Thomas Steilers

    I tried the CBD oil that comes from hemp cause that’s all that’s legal where I live and was really hoping it would help with my back pain but it does absolutely nothing. Might as well have bought a bottle of vegetable oil & saved $150. I think it’s the THC that’s in medical marijuana that offers true pain relief, looking forward to it being legal across the country not just in 30 states.

  • Zatural


    A: Hemp Oil may assist with it, but every person is different. You would be better to consult a doctor. We can’t claim that it would help with seizures, however, others who have taken our hemp oil have claimed that it has helped for pain, sleep, and anxiety relief. Our only ingredient is hemp oil because it is 100% Pure hemp oil.

  • Dan

    Is Hemp Oil good for seizures? What is Hemp Oil main active ingredients for pain, anxiety relief?

  • Zatural

    Thank you for your inquiry.
    At this time we have two Hemp Oil options
    100% Pure Hemp Oil or Peppermint Hemp Oil
    Our 100% Pure Hemp Oil is exactly as it sounds, Pure. No vegetable glycerin or anything.
    Our Peppermint Hemp Oil is Hemp Oil, Peppermint Essential Oil, Stevia.

  • Nancy

    I am currently using CBD oil however I believe it is causing me to get diarrhea due to the vegetable glycerin. Do you carry a strong CBD oil without vegetable glycerin, or does it all oil have vegetable glycerin? Is there anything you can recommend? I have been using it to help with my high stress level.

  • Hyrum

    Claire, Our Hemp Oil may assist with Pain, Anxiety, and sleep. Everyone does respond differently so its best to try it an see how it works for you! Ether way you know you are getting all of the nutritional benefits thanks to the high amounts of Omegas 3 and 6 and also Vitamin E!

  • Claire

    Whigh oil would help my IBS and pains in my hip/back pain please plus aid sleep and anxiety Any help would be gratefully received Claire x

  • Elizabeth

    Sorry for perhaps silly question: does hemp essential oil ( the very expensive one) contain CBD’s because the THC are lost due to steam distillation?
