Questions & ANswers
What is CBD? How is it different than Hemp?
The THC in Marijuana comprises between 5-35%. The CBD percentage in Marijuana is lower than in Hemp. The THC in Hemp is less than 0.3%. The CBD content is higher in Hemp. The CBD in hemp also acts as a THC antagonist – which makes the minimal amount of THC not at all significant.
Hemp oil is derived from Hemp seeds. CBD oil = hemp derived CBD oil = hemp extract = industrial hemp – made from flowers, leaves, and stalk.. There are new studies showing that raw CBD (called CBDA) is 1000 times more effective than processed or boiled CBD in which it works on relieving anxiety levels and nausea and vomiting in cancer patients.
In 2018, the Farm Bill put an end to a great deal of legal confusion by removing hemp from the Controlled Substance Act. This now includes the use of extracts and derivatives as long as the THC amount is less than 0.3%.
Hemp derived CBD products can be freely purchased over the internet and consumed.
How Does CBD work in body?
In the body there are two cannabinoid receptors: CB1 (at brain) and CB2 (in body).
CBD has a low affinity to those receptors – that’s why it’s not addictive or habit forming. CBD acts as indirect antagonists of their agonists in scientific terms.
CBD has tremendous benefits to many patients in pain such as migraines, headaches, epilepsy, anxiety, drug withdrawal, chronic pain, and multiple sclerosis.
