WHAT IS CANNABIDIOL (CBD)?
Hemp and cannabis (marijuana) contain over 113 different naturally occurring compounds known as cannabinoids. The most popular cannabinoids are THC and CBD. THC is the cannabinoid that gets you that euphoric feeling of being “high” and has medical benefits. CBD is a completely separate cannabinoid that cannot get you a euphoric psychoactive “high” experience. This cannabinoid, CBD, can be extracted from hemp and marijuana without any THC present. Recent research is showing that CBD (Cannabidiol) has an extremely wide array of health benefits.
HOW IS HEMP DIFFERENT FROM MARIJUANA?
Hemp and cannabis (marijuana) are not the same plants, but they are very similar. Hemp and marijuana are species of Cannabis Sativa L from the family of flowering plant, Cannabaceae. Hemp contains less than 0.3% of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). This plant also grows taller and is grown for industrial production reasons. Hemp is used to make fiber, paper, and automobile parts. Marijuana contains more than 0.3% THC and is grown primarily for medical and adult-uses. Did you know that hemp actually creates more CBD than typical marijuana? It also grows quicker and easier. Hemp is a magical plant that provides endless uses!
IS CBD LEGAL?
CBD that is extracted from legally grown industrial hemp with less than 0.3% THC is federally legal. This cannabinoid can’t get you intoxicated and is only known to be beneficial so as long as it is extracted from a legal source, the federal government doesn’t have any bans on it!
