What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound in the cannabis plant with proven therapeutic benefits. It does not get you high, but it has been shown to be effective in treating a wide range of ailments, and there are currently numerous government-backed studies being conducted on its many uses.

CBD can be paired with other parts of the cannabis plant to enhance or change its effects. That is often why you will see terpenes or other cannabinoids in products.

What Exactly Is The 2018 Farm Bill?

The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 was a proposed law to remove hemp (defined as cannabis with less than 0.3% total Delta THC) from Schedule 1 controlled substances and making it an ordinary agricultural commodity. Its provisions were incorporated in the Farm Bill that became law on December 20, 2018.

What is the legal status of CBD use in the United States?

Any cannabis plant that has more than 0.3% Delta9 THC is considered to be marijuana, a Schedule I drug in the United States, which makes it more subject to restrictions. ALL CBD related products listed on www.hemper.co, contain <0.3% Delta9 THC.

What Is The Difference Between CBD And Marijuana?

The main difference between THC and CBD is the psychoactivity of THC. In layman’s terms, THC gives you the feeling of being high. CBD, however, does not. The effects of CBD, therefore, may not be as immediately apparent as those of THC.

CBD is non-psychoactive because it does not directly interact with 2 of our body’s main cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2). Instead, it inhibits the enzymes that break down naturally-occurring cannabinoids, leading to an increase in endocannabinoid presence and sensitivity.

Are there any adverse effects that can occur after taking CBD or Delta 8 products?

What is the difference between Delta 8-THC and Delta 9-THC?
