Well embryonic stem cells are totipotent I believe, meaning they can differentiate into any type of cell, which obviously means that they can treat a wider range of problems and are more useful. Then you've got the ethical side of it which is it may be wrong to use embryos etc.

Adult stem cells are generally multipotent, so can only divide into certain types of cells in certain places, such as cells in bone marrow can only differentiate into red blood cells. However there are some pluripotent cells that can differentiate into any cell but they lose this ability after some time.

Idk if this helped or not but it's good revision for me lol
