Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second major cannabinoid found in cannabis plants like hemp. It's a naturally occurring substance that's used in products like oils and edibles. Unlike the other major cannabinoid, THC, CBD is non-psychoactive. THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol, the main compound found in marijuana plants. THC is what gives marijuana its psychoactive properties or “high” effects.
No, CBD and marijuana come from different plants. They do, however, come from the same species of cannabis plant. There are three recognized species of cannabis plants—Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis. Both CBD and marijuana are derived from the Cannabis sativa species. While CBD and marijuana both come from the same species of the cannabis plant, they are derived from different species of Cannabis sativa. CBD is derived from hemp, while marijuana is derived from the marijuana species.
Hemp and marijuana are different species of Cannabis sativa and bred for different purposes. Industrial hemp is exclusively produced by Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can be derived from Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica.
Both hemp and marijuana contain CBD, but there’s a much higher percentage in hemp. Hemp also has much lower levels of THC (less than 0.3%) than the marijuana species.
Industrial hemp is grown to be durable, have very long stalks and as few flowering buds as possible—this can make it easier to extract the high amounts of CBD and smaller amounts of THC. Hemp’s chemical profile means that you can’t get “high” from it, and it is used to create medicinal remedies, food and oil, as well as other products, including rope, bricks, natural polymers, fiber, clothes and many more.
Marijuana strains of cannabis are typically smaller, flimsier and have many flowering buds with the sole purpose of maximizing the concentration of THC. Marijuana is used recreationally and medicinally only.
When CBD is referred to as Full Spectrum or whole plant CBD, it means that the CBD contains all other cannabinoids found in the hemp plant including CBN (Cannabinol), CBG (Cannabigerol), and THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin), to name a few. And yes, along with these cannabinoids, Full Spectrum CBD also contains trace amounts of THC (up to 0.3%).
Broad Spectrum is likely not as potent as full spectrum hemp extract. The reason for this is that broad spectrum CBD oil contains little to no THC.
After the extraction process, sometimes the THC is removed from the final product. However, the remaining cannabinoids remain in the formula, therefore, broad spectrum can sometimes also technically be full spectrum, depending on the formula. Since THC levels are so low in hemp to begin with, the differences are minimal. CBD Isolate, on the other hand, is simply purified CBD that has been extracted from the hemp plant and isolated from the other cannabinoids, therefore it has zero THC.
Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp-derived CBD with not greater than 0.3% THC is legal in all fifty states. That's right; according to federal law, it is legal in all 50 states. That said, since the change in law is relatively new, some states might not fully embrace CBD as of yet. Be sure to check to see if your state has any restrictions.
A Doctor’s advice should be sought before using this and any other supplement. There is no 'one size fits all' when it comes to determining the 'right' serving. The effective serving for each person is different based on body chemistry, severity of concern, weight, concentration of product, etc. One or two drops may be effective for one person but another person may need several drops of the same products.
It is typically best to start low and gradually increase the serving size over time until you experience the desired result. Patience is the key. While some people get results immediately, most report not seeing results for weeks or even months.
You cannot overdose on CBD. CBD has been shown to be safe to use in high doses. CBD will not cause a fatal overdose. However, it is possible to take too much CBD. A consequence of taking too much CBD is the increased chance of negative side effects like lethargy or drowsiness.
