Where to get Hemp Oil?
Type that question into Google and you will immediately find much conflicting information. There are many vendors making all manner of claims about the efficacy, purity and concentration of their “hemp oil” – and some are undoubtedly accurate in what they claim – but who to trust? There are so many out there who are selling snake oil and not hemp oil at all . . . and then there is also the problem of wading through the confusing and often contradictory terminology too. Where to get hemp oil? It can be a daunting task indeed.

Let’s start by getting the basic terminology straight.
Cannabis is the genus of a group of plants that is generally recognised as having 3 species, namely sativa, indica and ruderalis. The name cannabis should be used as a generic term to describe any member of the genus, including hybrids and selectively bred varieties, whether psychoactive (or legal) or not.
Marijuana is a term of Mexican origin that is used to describe the potent “weed” or “pot” that has been selectively bred for smoking over millennia by cultivating sativa, indica (or hybrids of 2 or all 3 species) and is prized for its high THC content by stoners the world over. Marijuana is illegal in most countries around the world.
Hemp is the name for a group of varieties of Cannabis sativa that have been bred specifically for their fibre content, traditionally used for making cloth, including canvas (the word “canvas” itself is a corruption of the name “cannabis”) and seeds for the production of oils that have been used for everything from fuel to making paper, lubricants, paints, inks and even certain forms of plastic – as well as for culinary oil. Hemp is arguably the first crop that was grown by our earliest ancestors, and has been a part of our culture since the very beginning of recorded history. Hemp is extremely low in THC, and does not produce the legendary “high”. Hemp was made illegal along with marijuana in most countries early in the 20th century, but as governments are now realising the enormous potential of this plant for medicine, health and industry, it is becoming legal for cultivation in a domino effect that is spreading around the world.
First question to answer – what is hemp oil?
Apart from the weird & not-so-wonderful brews and toxic sludge dished up by the snake oil merchants, there are three substances that are regularly referred to as hemp oil, and these are available in many different forms.
Firstly there is hemp seed oil, which is cold-pressed from the seeds of the cannabis plant. This is a culinary oil and diet supplement that contains a plethora of healthy stuff, but remains a very nice and nutty flavoured salad dressing and nothing more. No THC, no CBD (Cannabidiol).
There is also the wide range of cannabis extracts – oils, waxes and the like – these are whole plant extracts made from marijuana.
They are made for ingestion or for smoking in “vapes” and while there are definitely medical reasons to use these substances, they will always give you a psychoactive effect.
Hemp oil is different. It’s extracted from Cannabis Sativa L. and THC is only present in negligible quantities (below 0,3%), so small that it is legal to cultivate because it is virtually impossible to get a “high” from it at all. However, hemp is relatively high in CBD.
