Roger, I’m not 100% certain on this, but I’m pretty confident that the difference here (and what makes it legal for people to sell it on Amazon) is that they are ONLY selling Hemp derived CBD vs. Cannabis derived CBD. Hence the “hemp extract” which is why the Farm Bill passing was such a big deal. As far as I’m aware, you can get CBD from both cannabis and hemp, but the hemp is legal federally. The bigger problem that I see is how misleading all of the amazon products are though because of these amazon regulations. All of the bottles I’ve seen only show the amount of “Hemp seed extract” (ex-2,500 mg Hemp Oil Extract) which is just like buying 2,500 mg of orange juice when I’m looking for vitamin c!
That being said, if you type "cbd oil" on Amazon in its search box, you will get search results that appear to be CBD oil. This understandably confuses people looking to buy CBD oil online. The reality is that most of those products are just hemp seed oil that don't contain any CBD. There is definitely a difference between hemp oil and CBD oil as explained in the article "What's The Difference Between Hemp Oil and CBD Oil?"

Hemp Master 1000mg hemp seed oil is highly reviewed on amazon and sought after by consumers for both its high hemp seed concentrate and its ability to assist in stress management. Many consumers have experienced great assistance with sleep, as well as relieved joint stiffness. A multitude of consumers cite excellent assistance in stress management, stating there’s a noticeable sense of calmness following use. Some reviewers, however, have said it has little to no effect on pain, and were disappointed at the fact that the product is not a full spectrum hemp oil (which would contain CBD). Though there are dozens of reviewers who state a favorable effect on pain, some state no changes were experienced. Some 1-3 star reviews state that the mint flavor isn’t as enjoyable as they hoped.
While animal experimental data clearly suggest a potential benefit, supportive clinical data are quite sparse. In a case-control study of 308 cases of new onset seizures, Brust and colleagues found that marijuana use was significantly less prevalent among men who had unprovoked seizures compared to case controls (9). This difference was not significant in women. The authors suggest a potential protective effect against seizures with marijuana use; however, this should be considered speculative.
