What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound that is derived from the cannabis plant, specifically Cannabis Sativa. This is not to be confused with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is another cannabinoid altogether. CBD is primarily derived from the agricultural hemp plant. In order to extract CBD oil from the cannabis plant, producers need to isolate the CBD from the THC to ensure that the oil will not be psychoactive. Almost all CBD derived from hemp today contains less than .3 percent THC which is not a high enough concentration of THC to cause psychoactive effects.
Can you get high from CBD oil?
No. tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the psychoactive cannabinoid that makes you feel high; cannabidiol (CBD) does not have any psychoactive properties. While many CBD oils and products, particularly full-spectrum products, contain trace amounts of THC, it is not enough to make you feel high.
What is the difference between CBD oil and 100% hemp oil?
Hemp oil, or hemp seed oil, is most commonly derived from the hemp plant seed. Hemp oil does not contain the cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or cannabidiol (CBD). Hemp oil is most commonly sold as omegas and vitamins. CBD oil is extracted from the whole hemp plant. The extraction of CBD leaves a broad spectrum of oils. While hemp derived CBD oil does contain THC, it is below .3 percent making it non-psychoactive.
