Hemp CBD vs Marijuana CBD

We are all confused!

Hemp CBD and Marijuana CBD both come from the Cannabaceae family of flowering plants. They are both considered cannabis plants.

The key difference in the plants is the amount of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Marijuana is known as the plant that gets you high as it contains more than 0.3% THC. In many cases, much more!

Hemp contains 0.3% or less THC. It is unlikely to get you high but could cause a light euphoria. And Hemp is very rich in CBD as seen in products such as tinctures, gummies, or capsules.

Hemp has been in use for hundreds of years. It is used to also make rope, clothes, sails, food, paper, concrete, diapers, etc. Hemp is an amazing substance and we are just now starting to see the medicinal usages for it as well. Even though, science hasn’t caught up to this fact yet.

Unlike Marijuana, Hemp can be grown legally across most of the US.

Thanks to Karen and Senior-High, I found a product that helps me get to sleep and stay asleep, without feeling hungover the next morning! This is the best sleep aid I have used!

A couple weeks before my plantar fasciitis surgery, Karen devised a course of treatment for me involving THC tincture and CBD balm. The improvement is stunning, and there’s just a chance that I will be able to dodge having surgery on my foot. Thanks Senior-High, for your sage advice.

Thank you so much for recommending Papa & Barkley Relief Balm. I have been using it on my knee to help my arthritis. It works great and I am able to enjoy my yoga classes much more. I also have begun using it on my left hip where I have a torn tendon and it is helping as well.
