I’m glad you’re asking this question!
There is so much information out there concerning Hemp Extract products, it’s important to understand what it is (and what it isn’t).
Hemp Extract, Industrial Hemp Extract, Hemp Oil, Hemp Extract Oil, etc, all refer to the same product: Raw oils extracted from the Hemp Plant. This raw oil can be mixed and blended into MANY different consumer goods ranging from nutritional supplements, cosmetics, pain creams, edible snacks, candles, aromatherapy oils, massage oils, and just about anything else you can imagine.
