What’s the Difference Between Hemp Oil and CBD Oil? Confusion amongst the public on how exactly hemp oil differs from cannabidiol or CBD oil has prompted the nonprofit Hemp Industries Association (HIA) to issue a statement explaining the difference between hemp oil and CBD oil in order to ensure that consumers — specifically, medical marijuana patients — are not misled about the intended uses. Hemp is often mistaken for its cannabis cousin, marijuana, even though smoking an entire garbage bag of hemp would not produce an altered state of consciousness like THC does, as hemp contains low levels of THC.
Confusion between hemp oil and marijuana oil has spiked recently, as states have passed medical marijuana laws that allow for the use of strains of marijuana that are low in THC and high in CBD. With hemp research and development pilot programs taking off this spring, and the hemp retail market growing at an incredible rate, it’s crucial that consumers and retailers alike understand the difference between hemp oil and CBD extracts, Eric Steenstra, executive director of Hemp Industries Association, said in a separate statement. Our Hemp Industries Association position regarding this distinction calls on makers of CBD products to brand and market their products truthfully and clearly, so as to not further the confusion surrounding CBD products in the marketplace. Though hemp oil does contain lower levels of CBD, typically less than 25 parts per million (ppm), CBD extracts “are produced either directly from cannabis flowers that are up to 15 percent CBD (150,000 ppm), or indirectly as a co-product of the flowers and leaves that are mixed in with the stalks during hemp stalk processing for fiber.” It is important for American farmers and processors of hemp to understand that most CBD in products mislabeled as ‘hemp oil’ is a product of large-scale hemp stalk and fiber processing facilities in Europe where the fiber is the primary material produced at a large scale, the association says. Not all CBD is derived from the flowers of the industrial hemp plant. Some publicly traded companies have developed proprietary methods to extract CBD from the seeds and stalks of the industrial hemp plant. Furthermore, reputable publically traded companies, who must operate within FDA guidelines, and who derive, manufacture and sell CBD extract components and products, cannot make false claims about their products, or the derivation of their products. These companies have rigorous, and again, many also have proprietary testing standards that not only certify THC levels (industrial hemp must not have THC levels above 0.3%) but purity as well for heavy metals, for example, and other contaminants that may be harmful to consumer health.
