What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Industrial hemp and marijuana are both classified as cannabis plants, and both contain various levels of cannabinoids, which include CBD and THC. The difference between the two plants lies in their concentrations of cannabinoids. Industrial hemp contains a large amount of CBD but has very little THC. Marijuana is the complete opposite; it contains only trace amounts of CBD but huge levels of THC.
What’s the difference between CBD and THC?
CBD and THC are both cannabinoids, which means they are naturally found in cannabis plants. The main difference between the two lies in their level of psychoactivity. CBD contains none of the psychoactive effects marijuana is famous for, which are almost entirely caused by THC. Therefore, products with CBD will not get you high; in fact, high levels of CBD prevent the low levels of THC found in industrial hemp from ever taking effect.
What are the medical effects of CBD oil?
CBD oil is intended to be taken as a dietary supplement. When used, it has been shown to have a positive impact on the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is a system of receptors found in the brain and all through the body via the nervous system. The ECS is a key factor in the process of homeostasis, which is in charge of keeping our body in balance by regulating our hunger levels, pain levels, mood, memory, immune system functions, and more.
Various studies have also shown the use of CBD oil to have a positive effect on the symptoms of depression, heart disease, schizophrenia, opioid withdrawals, and many more.
