One important aspect to understand when considering the difference between hemp-derived CBD and marijuana-derived CBD is the resin content of each plant. Cannabis resin is found within the trichomes of the plant.
Hemp-derived oil and CBD products are sourced from industrial hemp plants, which are grown primarily for their fiber andseeds. These plants tend to differ from marijuana plants in appearance; they are often skinny and have sparse foliage. Hemp is also differentiated from marijuana by its levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the cannabinoid that causes consumers to feel “high.”. As outlined in the 2018 Farm Bill, a hemp plant must contain no more than 0.3% THC.

“Full-spectrum [CBD oil] is the extraction of all of the components — cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, etc. — of the hemp plant including low levels of THC,” explained Dr. Chanda Macias, CEO of Women Grow, an organization connecting female professionals in the cannabis industry; and CEO of National Holistic, a healing center based in Washington, D.C.
What follows are some of the key differences between using hemp vs. marijuana plants to extract CBD and to make CBD oil.
