Hemp vs CBD

If you look into the comparison of Hemp vs CBD, then you can find out which one is better. And moreover, you will also get certain information on both.


  • Hemp contains a very low concentration of THC (less than 0.3%). Because of this, it is grown primarily for industrial purposes. This is how it got the name Industrial hemp.
  • The plant consists of skinny leaves concentrated at the top of the plant. It grows taller and skinnier than Marijuana, with few branches under its upper portion.
  • You can produce paper, clothing, food products, oils, building materials, biofuel, and more out of it.
  • As cannabidiol is growing in popularity all over the world, it is also used to make full spectrum hemp oil and cream.
  • CBD oil and tinctures are popular products that are fast-moving and widely available.
  • Each state or country has its own laws for the use, sales, transportation, and cultivation of the plant. This largely depends on the THC-content which it comprises of.
  • In the United States, the THC-content that is allowed for it to be classified as legal is 0.3%.


  • CBD or Cannabidiol is one of the derivatives from the same plant.
  • It is infused into oils and tinctures and into edibles like gummies.
  • Cannabidiol interacts with the endocannabinoid system in the body. Upon doing so, it brings a state of stability or induces “homeostasis”. This brings positive effects in your body.
  • It reduces anxiety, pain, inflammation and helps with sleep disorders.
  • CBD from cannabis, and from hemp- what’s the difference?
  • While the compound is the same in each of them, the resin, terpenes and other cannabinoids that surround them make all the difference.
  • Going by that, Hemp CBD has a much lower terpene and cannabinoid count, compared to cannabis CBD.
  • In the US, the legality depends on two things- it should be sourced from the plant and must contain a THC concentration of 0.3 percent or less.
