Ultimately the difference lies in THC content and the manner of extraction for the CBD. Hemp offers less than 0.3% THC while cannabis offers varying degrees of THC levels and CBD levels. And hemp-derived products have the option of CBD isolates, which omit THC and many other cannabinoids.

The clarification is needed for the sake of the patient’s lifestyle.

If they dislike the psychoactive effects and lack access to medical cannabis, hemp CBD is best. They reap all the benefits, especially if they buy full spectrum CBD products.

Then there are some patients who may have government positions that omit cannabis usage. Others may just have jobs that frequently drug test. Isolates that omit THC, terpenes and other cannabinoids are going to be a winner for them.
