CBD use is becoming increasingly popular as a natural alternative to pills, steroid creams and other over the counter medications. Below are some of the FAQs that we have been asked and if you’re new to CBD, then hopefully the answers help you broaden your knowledge.
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) is one of over 60 active chemical compounds (or ‘cannabinoids’) in the marijuana plant. It’s usually the second-most abundant cannabinoid, behind THC.
DOES CBD COME FROM MARIJUANA OR HEMP? AND WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO?
Marijuana and hemp are two different varieties of cannabis that come from the same species of plant (Cannabis sativa L).
The hemp plant is an entirely different strain of cannabis that contains high quantities of CBD throughout and practically zero traces of THC.
In Europe, hemp plants cannot contain more than 0.2% THC. In USA, the THC limit is 0.3%
Most all CBD-based products come from the industrial hemp plant.
