Difference between hybrid vs blend?

It's been quite awhile since I have posted on this fine forum, but I'm a bit STUMPED, and could use your expertise. I'm not sure if perhaps "blend" is a very common term or not, but here in Canada at least, (for instance as viewed on the Newfoundland Government's own cannabis online store) they list their liquid extracts as Sativa, Indica, Hybrid, and Blend. I know all about Sativa and Indica, and assume that Hybrid is a combination of these two types, but I'm unsure about "Blend". I've spent some time googling this, unfortunately to no avail. Some say that "Blend" is simply another term for Hybrid, whiles others say no. And if Hybrid and Blend ARE in fact the very same thing, then why does the online store use both of these terms in their description?

Any/all replies will be greatly appreciated, thanks!!

So for extracts would that just mean two or more strains mixed? Whereas Hybrid is just saying the extract is from one specific strain? Only thing that makes sense to me why need a different label. Like a Blend in Whisky or Tobacco or a or Cofffe or a Preroll would mean a mixture of a couple different ones.

My interpretation would be Indica extract is Indica, Sativa extract is Sativa, Hybrid extract is any Indica/Sativa cross, and a blend is a combination of Sativa, Indica, and/or Hybrid extracts. But hey, what do I know.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I was thinking too. Hopefully some more members will chime in with their expertise.
