Cannabis Term Sheet

Hemp Oil

The term hemp oil is used to describe three different things:

  1. Hemp Supplement. An oil extracted from hemp seeds that can be used as a salad dressing or dietary supplement. This oil can be bought at your local health foods store and is non-psychoactive.
  2. Hemp Extract. A hemp extract prized for having a sufficiently low THC content that it can be legally imported to the US and shipped nationally. There are many dealers looking to sell these extracts to patients for a quick profit. However, they are not known to have significant medical properties.
  3. RSO. For years, Rick Simpson referred to his oil as a “highly concentrated hemp oil”
