CBD Oil vs Hemp Oil
Hemp is the least processed form of a Cannabis plant. It also happens to be the plant that contains the highest volume of CBD that can be extracted and used for health and well being benefits.
Despite both coming from the Cannabis Sativa plant, Hemp and Marijuana are two very different things. They both have different genetics based on being different strains of the same plant. Also, they are cultivated for different uses.
Marijuana, however, has been outlawed in most countries for quite some time and is not typically used for anything beyond its psychoactive effects to get you ‘high’.
Is CBD THC-free?
Hemp Oil is still typically used for CBD Oil. Despite being a relative of THC, which is a compound found in marijuana that gets you high, CBD is not an addictive compound.
Unlike THC, CBD interacts naturally with our internal systems without being psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t get you high. This important biochemical feature of CBD makes it a safer treatment option than medical Marijuana. CBD is classified as a “food supplement”.
