Yes! Hemp has been selectively bred to produce no more than 0.3% THC. The Federal government does not consider hemp a Schedule I drug due to the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill.
Broad spectrum CBD contains a variety of cannabis compounds, excluding THC, making it a THC-free option while still offering the potential benefits of other cannabinoids and terpenes. Full spectrum CBD includes all naturally occurring compounds in the cannabis plant, including trace amounts of THC, believed to work together synergistically for enhanced therapeutic effects in what’s known as the entourage effect.
Studies have shown CBD to have anti-inflammatory properties and many potential benefits. New research is constantly being done on using CBD to treat stress, anxiety, sleep regulation, and many other conditions.
No. Of the ~hundred cannabinoids, CBD and THC are the two most commonly known. THC is the cannabinoid that produces a psychotropic effect – “getting high.” CBD does not have this psychotropic effect, and is mildly psychoactive.

The effects of cannabis products vary based on factors like product type, dosage, and individual tolerances. Smoking offers quick effects, while edibles and topicals may take longer. Certain products, like those for sleep regulation, can take hours or days to notice full effects. Individual uniqueness, such as chronic pain, can also influence the experience. For example, a person experiencing chronic pain will gauge the effects of a product differently from a person who doesn’t experience chronic pain.
At the scientific level, no. The two CBD molecules will look exactly the same under a microscope. The primary difference is the plant, as hemp has been selectively bred to produce less than 0.3% THC. As a result, the concentration of all cannabinoids in hemp is less than the concentration of cannabinoids in cannabis. To make a CBD product from hemp would require more plant matter than would be required to make a CBD product from cannabis.
New research is coming out that examines the potential benefits of using CBD as a daily vitamin. Early research is finding positive effects of CBD on immune system support and digestive system wellness.
Delta-8 THC, a hemp-derived cannabinoid, closely resembles Delta-9 THC found in cannabis, commonly referred to as THC. However, Delta-8 offers a milder psychoactive experience, described as a “euphoric high without the associated paranoia and anxiety associated with Delta-9.” From a scientific standpoint, the variation between Delta-8 and Delta-9 lies in the positioning of their double bond on the carbon chain, either on the 8th or 9th carbon atom.
