Cannabis plant

Cannabis is one of the genera of plants known as Cannabaceae. There are two main cannabis species that are grown for human consumption called Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa.

Sativa plants are taller and produce more fiber and, therefore, are the species from which hemp cultivation arose. Indica plants are shorter and bushier and less suitable for agriculture, either for industrial purposes or for food production, but they are very suitable for producing medical marijuana.

The differences between Hemp or Hemp and Marijuana

Hemp is not Marijuana. Although hemp contains some cannabinoids, it has negligible amounts of THC. In fact, to be legally grown, hemp must contain less than 0.3% THC. Hemp is also grown as an industrial crop for the use of fibers in textiles and even building materials. Most industrial hemp is grown for its fiber and contains relatively small concentrations of cannabinoids and terpenes, so it is not the most desirable source of CBD oil.

CBD oil in CBD ESSENTIALS is made from a strain rich in CBD known as Hemp RFC or Hemp Rich in Phytocannabinoids: It contains up to ten times the concentration of CBD than generic industrial hemp and only insignificant amounts of THC. It has no psychoactive effect.

On the other hand, Marijuana is high in the psychoactive compound THC, or delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, the compound in marijuana that causes a halt.

Marijuana is rightly considered a “drug.” It is grown mainly for medicinal and “recreational” purposes. Both indica and sativa varieties, as well as the hybrids of the two, are used to produce marijuana.

The federal government of the United States considers that marijuana is a controlled substance of Class I. However, many US states. UU. They have instituted legislation to regulate their cultivation and allow their use as a medicine. Some states have also legalized marijuana for recreational use.
