With the burgeoning industry due to the enactment of the U.S. Farm Bill in late 2018, a predictable swarm of hemp-derived products has surfaced, subsequently sparking some confusion and curiosity among potential and current customers about the difference between CBD oil and hemp or “hempseed” oil. Insufficient regulation has led to companies mislabeling their products using the term hemp oil to market their CBD products to avoid any problems with the FDA. Therefore, education of the differences between the two is essential to ease this confusion and for clarity.
Let’s break it down.
Cannabis (marijuana) and industrial hemp are two varieties of the same plant species, cannabis sativa. The difference is that hemp — defined by the law (2018 Farm Bill) — contains no more than 0.3% of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive compound found in marijuana which causes the intoxicated feeling and “high”, but this amount is not enough to give the user a high. On the other hand, marijuana usually contains 5-35% of THC making it intoxicating. Hemp is cultivated mainly for industrial and domestic purposes while marijuana is cultivated for medicinal and recreational purposes.
