Yes! Hemp has been selectively bred to produce no more than 0.3% THC. The Federal government does not consider hemp to be a Schedule I drug as a result of the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill.
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, the two most commonly known are CBD and THC. THC is the cannabinoid that produces a psychoactive effect – “getting high.” CBD does not produce this psychoactive effect.
Generally, no; however, due to the trace amounts of THC that can be present, certain factors such as dosage, frequency, and the timing between last use and test can result in a positive result.
It all depends on the product, dosage, and a person’s individual tolerances and sensitivities. Some products can have effects that are quick to notice, like smoking, and others like edibles and topicals can take time. Some products may need hours or even days for full effects to be noticed, such as products intended to help regulate sleep for example. A person’s individual uniqueness can affect the experience as well – 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 like a daily vitamin. Early research is finding positive effects of CBD on immune system support and digestive system wellness.
Delta-8 THC is a cannabinoid found in hemp. It’s very similar to Delta-9 THC which is found in cannabis and is just simply known as THC; however Delta-8 has less potent psychoactive effects than Delta-9. It’s been described as a “euphoric high without the associated paranoia and anxiety that can be possible from Delta-9”. On the science side, the difference between Delta-8 and Delta-9 is whether the molecule’s double bond is on its 8th or 9th carbon chain.
