What Is CBD?
Jared: Have you tried Hemplucid CBD?
Friend: What is CBD?
Jared: Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a cannabis compound or cannabinoid.
Friend: Cannabis?? You mean marijuana?
Jared: Hmm, no not exactly…Let me see if I can clarify. Cannabis is a type of plant that is bred with either high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or low levels of THC.
Friend: Well what is THC?
Jared: THC is simply the cannabis cannabinoid or compound that produces the “stoned” effect associated with marijuana. It is the primary psychoactive element in the cannabis plant. It is important to realize that Cannabis plants can be bred with low levels of THC, below 0.3%. These low THC-producing, non-intoxicating plants are classified as Hemp. However, cannabis plants that have an intoxicating effect are bred intentionally with over 0.3% THC and are considered marijuana. To clarify most marijuana plants have higher than 20% THC levels.
Friend: Let me see if I understand…Cannabis strains can be grown with high levels of THC, which produces the mind-altering effects, and is considered Marijuana. However, strains of cannabis intentionally bred with low levels of THC, below 0.3%, has no high effect and is called hemp?
Jared: Exactly! This point is often overlooked by lots of people.
It is important to realize that CBD is found in all cannabis plants (hemp and marijuana). CBD from both plants is proving to have huge health benefits. With this in mind, anything that comes from the cannabis plant bred with high levels of THC, marijuana, is illegal.
