The revolution that rose in Colorado back in 2014 with the legalization of marijuana has expanded by leaps and bounds, while having medicinal-cannabis legalized in many states already. The momentum of legalization, acceptance, and public awareness is a clear indicator that the cannabis industry is likely to seek accelerated growth in the years to come.

Though, in this content we are focusing solely on Hemp CBD. So, you might be wondering and probably asking this question to yourself right now, “What’s the difference between Hemp CBD and marijuana?” Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are the two primary cannabinoids that occur naturally in the Cannabis sativa plant, most commonly known as cannabis.
Both of these substances interact with the cannabinoid receptors found in the human body and brain, but they differed dramatically in their effects. CBD is non-psychoactive which means that it will not get the user high. Because of this trait, CBD appears more frequently than THC in dietary and natural supplements.
“CBD is by far the most studied natural cannabinoid.”
CBD is by far the most studied natural cannabinoid. According to many researchers, it may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered. Many testimonials have been shared regarding its efficacy with inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychotic behaviors, seizures and spasms, without any side effects.
Scientific and clinical studies highlight CBD as a potential treatment choice for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. It has demonstrated neuro-protective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere.
The difference between using hemp (instead of marijuana) for cannabidiol (CBD) is that industrial hemp is naturally high in CBD and naturally low in THC, whereas marijuana is the opposite (high THC, low CBD).
