CBD is a popular name in the health and wellness industry. Testimonials of regular CBD users who found it useful for handling their specific conditions are encouraging many to try CBD products.
This article is a complete guide to CBD.
Where Is CBD Sourced From?
CBD is a 100% natural compound sourced from cannabis plants. Precisely speaking, it is an active cannabinoid. The medicinal properties of cannabis are attributed to some of its constituent compounds including CBD.
Although CBD can be sourced from all cannabis plants, the law specifically requires CBD products to be sourced from hemp plants for a reason. Hemp plants contain good levels of CBD while also containing other cannabinoids including THC. The euphoric effect/high associated with cannabis is attributed to its THC content.
Hemp plants contain minimal levels of THC while marijuana, another cannabis plant contains high levels of THC. This is why the law clearly instructs CBD products to be sourced from hemp. Also, their THC content should not be greater than 0.3% in any case.
