What is a Cannabinoid?
There are more than one hundred unique chemical compounds found in both the Cannabis and Hemp plants called cannabinoids. The two most famous cannabinoids are CBD and THC. THC is the intoxicating cannabinoid that acts as a euphoriant and gets you “high.” CBD is the non-intoxicating cannabinoid that has recently received so much attention in the health and wellness space.
What is the difference between Cannabis and Hemp?
Cannabis (sometimes referred to as Marijuana) and Hemp are actually two varieties of the same plant species – Cannabis Sativa. Because they share the same species name, there is a lot of confusion around the differences between them. Both varieties produce cannabinoids. Hemp is the variety of Cannabis Sativa that has been bred to have very low levels of THC (0.3% or less) and high levels of CBD. In fact, to be legally considered Hemp, the Cannabis plant must have no more than 0.3% THC.
What is the difference between domestic and imported hemp?
Hemp, like many plants, can absorb the toxins and impurities in the air and soil in which it is grown. Some Hemp extracts on the market come from other countries and may contain heavy metals and other chemical contaminants. All of the CBD used in our products is derived from select hemp cultivated in the USA, which allows us to maintain the highest standards of quality and purity.
