I have to confess...Even I am sometimes confused.
There is so many variations and so much information out there, that it's hard to tell what's the difference.
Cannabis Sativa is the botanical name of the plant species. There are multiple strains of the Cannabis Sativa plant. One of the common strains is called Industrial Hemp and the other is Marijuana. These are different plants, but both come from the same family of plants.
Hemp Oil is most commonly comes from the Cannabis Sativa (Industrial Hemp) plant seed. It is also called Hemp Seed Oil. Hemp Oil is regulated in its production and is tested for THC and CBD levels, however it does not contain either of those Cannabinoids. Test have shown that there are no cannabinoids present in the seeds of the hemp plant.

FAQ: Questions and Answers
A: No, Both are made from the same plant though. 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 CBD oil or Hemp Extract which are extracted from the whole plant.

Q: Will taking Hemp Oil or CBD Oil make me fail a drug test?
A: All Zatural products are 3rd party tested to insure that no THC is present in the oil. We only sell products that register as ND (Not Detected) or 0. Most drug tests are testing for THC Levels. However, cheaper drug testing may be testing a wider variety of cannabinoids as they may not be specific enough to test for THC only. It is always a good idea to discuss with your employer or whomever before hand and explain that you are considering taking Hemp Oil or CBD Oil. We can provide the tests showing there is no THC present.
