CBD Truths

MYTH:

CBD comes from the Hemp plant. THC comes from Marijuana.

I see this statement on many mainstream media outlets and always find it quite disturbing because the average consumer is being misguided. Hemp and Marijuana are the same plant -specifically the plant known scientifically as Cannabis sativa L.

FACT:

CBD is present in nearly all Cannabis plants.

Cannabidiol (commonly referred to as CBD) is present in some concentration in nearly all cannabis plants. If you smoked pot in your youth, you were likely getting some CBD. If you’re using cannabis products from a dispensary today, chances are there is anywhere from 1-2% CBD in the THC rich products you are selecting.

If you’re buying from a CBD outlet, be sure you are getting CBD from a cannabis plant that has been bred to produce CBD in high percentages (or what I refer to as non-industrial hemp derived CBD).
