Cannabis CBD vs Hemp CBD
What’s the difference between CBD derived from hemp and cannabis?
Not all CBD products are made the same or coming from the same type of cannabis.
CBD may be produced both out of :
- cannabis (commonly known as marijuana)
- industrial hemp
Cannabis-derived CBD is extracted from marijuana plants that boast healthy flowers often grown and consumed to get high.
Cannabis plants typically contain more than 0.3% THC which is the predominant cannabinoid. Depending on the plant, they can also be very rich in CBD.
Hemp plants however are rather grown for industrial purposes to extract their seeds and fiber, and of course, to produce and commercialize CBD products. The Industrial hemp plant is skinny and doesn’t have many leaves. Industrial hemp always has low levels of THC therefore its consumption is not intoxicating.
CBD as a molecular component is exactly the same, whether it comes from marijuana or hemp plants.
