FIRST THINGS FIRST…
CBD is not the same as marijuana… even though both contain certain amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The difference between being a legal Hemp topical with Cannabidiol (CBD) vs marijuana, is in the amount of THC present in the plant.
LEGAL CBD MUST BE 0.3% OR LESS IN THC. ANY AMOUNT OVER THIS THRESHOLD, CHANGES IT’S CLASSIFICATION AS MARIJUANA WHICH IS NOT LEGAL IN ALL STATES.
Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two most prominent cannabinoids found in cannabis, the plant species that includes both hemp and marijuana. CBD and THC are the two most abundant of the many cannabinoids found in cannabis. They both interact with the endocannabinoid system but elicit different natural effects. In addition, there are over 100+ different cannabinoids identified to date in cannabis, CBD and THC are the most extensively studied and best understood today.
To finish up our discussion… Just know, the only difference between Hemp CBD and Marijuana is the THC content, it’s as simple as that!
