What's the Difference Between Hemp and CBD?

Hemp oil and cannabidiol (CBD) oil are two different products derived from the Cannabis sativa plant. Hemp seed oil is extracted from the small seeds of the plant, while CBD oil is extracted from the stems, leaves, and flowers, which contain a higher concentration of CBD. Hemp seed oil has its own health benefits, but it does not contain any CBD. On the other hand, CBD oil derived from hemp or marijuana may offer greater therapeutic benefits.

When it comes to extracting CBD from hemp or marijuana, there are certain factors that differentiate the two plants. Hemp plants tend to contain less THC and more CBD than marijuana plants, and the difference has become increasingly pronounced. In addition, hemp-based CBD products in China may contain high levels of contaminants due to lack of regulations in the agricultural industry. It is important to note that full-spectrum CBD, whether extracted from hemp or marijuana, may offer greater therapeutic benefits than products with 0% THC.

Experimenting with different levels of THC and CBD, if it's legal for you to do so, may be the key to finding the right product for your needs.
