There are two main sources of CBD oil — hemp and marijuana plants. In terms of the CBD chemical, there is no difference between hemp and marijuana plants — it’s always the same from a molecular perspective. But when it comes to the legality of CBD products, everything hinges on whether the CBD comes from a hemp plant or a marijuana plant.
In contrast, CBD oil is extracted from the leaves and flowers of hemp plants, which contain a large variety of cannabinoids and terpenes, including CBD. Oil extracted from the leaves and flowers of such plants is therefore rich in CBD.
What are the types of CBD oil?
This distinction was codified in the 2018 Farm Bill, which essentially legalized hemp, including hemp oil and other CBD products sourced from these plants. As a result, hemp-derived CBD products are now widely available and much easier to purchase than in the past. However, CBD products made from a cannabis plant with more than 0.3% THC are illegal nationally, and can only be purchased in states where marijuana is legal.
No. The definition of hemp oil vs CBD oil vs hemp seed oil is at the center of the confusion.
The entourage effect is the synergistic relationship between cannabinoids and terpenes in whole-plant extracts, which allows them to work together to provide a superior result over an isolate.
CBD can be extracted from both marijuana and hemp. However, as marijuana is illegal in most places, much of the CBD you’ll find on the market is made from hemp.
No, CBD will not get you high because CBD is another one of the many compounds found in cannabis plants (so in both hemp and marijuana) which has no psychoactive properties.
