The Mystery Behind CBD

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Hemp Plant

CBD, or also known as Cannibidiol, is being hailed as a pain reliever, mood booster, and for dozens of other applications such as anxiety relief and general health issue support. But the debate continues and much mystery surrounds the CBD compound in general. Many still do not understand what it is, or think its the same thing as Marijuana.

But I am not here to debate any of that, what I do want to shed light on is where CBD actually comes from. With the Farm Bill being passed in 2018, farmers have been quick to want to grow hemp but the education is lacking on how to not get penalized by actually growing Marijuana. To clarify, hemp plants are typically classified as having less than .3% THC, which is the psychoactive compound in Marijuana. Cannabis plants that have more than .3% THC are typically classified as Marijuana plants. Both Hemp and Marijuana are just classification terms for the Cannabis plant.

The problem lies when farmers purchase Hemp seeds that have more, or close to, the legal threshold of .3% THC. Furthermore, if a farmer purchases hemp seeds that in that high range already, when the plant matures it increases in THC concentration resulting in an illegal crop. At this point in time, that harvest will not be productive in being used for CBD production. CBD products need to have a .3% or less THC makeup in order to be considered legal.

There are many 3rd party organizations and universities who offer testing of both the seeds and the CBD final product, to ensure it meets buyers’ expectations. Funny thing is, you will notice that many companies actually display these results publicly and they are above .3% THC content. The psychoactive need not be present as the users of CBD products are not buying it for its psychotropic effects.

On the other end of the spectrum, farmers and suppliers both risk losing their licensing from their respective state with non-compliant product. That also applies to states that currently have Marijuana legalized, as those institutions are heaviliy regulated with different licensing requirements.

CBD is used for entirely different purposes than Marijuana or THC-based applications. CBD combined with a small amount of THC, within the legal limit, will result in a higher efficacy product. They often refer to this as “full spectrum” where there are hundreds of various cannabinoids present in the final CBD product. CBD with the presence of THC will provide a more natural absorbtion and higher quality experience for the end user.

As you can see there is alot behind the curtain as it relates to CBD, and it is quite different in its application and entire product cycle than that of Marijuana. The debate and misinformation will continue, but for now those in the know can reap the benefits of CBD.
