What makes Hemp-Derived CBD Different from Marijuana?
Cannabis is a type of plant often used as an umbrella term to speak about both hemp and marijuana. You can extract CBD from both plants, but the major difference is THC content and legality.
Hemp contains dramatically lower amounts of THC. That’s why it’s the ideal choice for pure CBD oil extraction and full-spectrum hemp extracts. Hemp-derived CBD extracts should only have trace amounts of THC within the legal limit, and with no psychoactive effects.
Marijuana, on the other hand, contains much higher amounts of THC, which have psychotropic effects and may be illegal depending on where you live.
