Hemp and marijuana are both varieties of the same plant, Cannabis sativa. Though both plants look the same, their chemical composition is quite different. The chemical difference has to do with the presence or absence of certain enzymes. Both marijuana and hemp contain a chemical substance called cannabigerol (CBGA), which is concentrated mostly in the flower buds of the plant. Marijuana contains an enzyme that converts CBGA into THC; hemp contains a different enzyme that converts CBGA into CBD (cannabidiol).
Whereas marijuana contains both THC and CBD, hemp, as found in this product, contains almost exclusively CBD — THC occurs only in very trace amounts. Only cannabis with less than 0.3% THC can be legally classified as hemp.
Both THC (in marijuana) and CBD (in hemp) belong to a class of plant chemical compounds called cannabinoids that bind to receptors in the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system modulates endorphins (chemicals that modulate the pain response), the balance of neurotransmitters in the brain, immune system functions, emotional centers, and metabolism.
THC binds to endocannabinoid receptors very tightly, causing an exaggerated or euphoric response — in other words, you get high. In the process, it also suppresses endocannabinoid receptors and levels of natural endocannabinoids in the body.
CBD, on the other hand, weakly binds to endocannabinoid receptors in the brain and body, gently stimulating and blocking them at the same time. This has positive results without an exaggerated euphoric response, so you don’t get high or intoxicated in any way. In addition, regular use of CBD seems to increase endocannabinoid receptors and natural endocannabinoids.
A lot. CBD isolate (which is CBD alone) acts very differently in the body than a full spectrum of hemp chemical components, as found in this product. Here are some quick definitions:
The cannabis plant naturally generates a spectrum of beneficial chemical compounds, including cannabinoids and terpenes. These other chemicals are like a supporting cast — they enhance the properties of CBD, and provide other properties such as antioxidant support that are not as pronounced with CBD isolate.
No. Even in high doses, CBD oil will not cause euphoria or impair coordination, balance, or motor functions. Psychoactive effects start at 3-5% THC; CBD products contain less than 0.3% THC. Use of CBD oil is associated with improved sense of well-being, but not an exaggerated feeling of well-being. Use of CBD oil has never been associated with hallucinations or abnormal mental activity.
Even though this product contains less than the legal limit of 0.3% THC, there’s a small chance you may test positive for marijuana because a few drug testing labs are still using an outdated method that doesn’t distinguish between THC and CBD.
Scientific studies suggest that the potential of becoming habituated to hemp CBD products is extremely low. You can develop tolerance to it, however. The longer you take it continually, the higher the serving you will need to get the same effect.
Prolonged use of CBD at high servings has not shown potential for abuse of CBD. In fact, a clinical study published in 2018 found that recreational polydrug users did not show abuse potential with use of CBD. Long-term studies have not evaluated potential changes in hormonal balance or long-term adverse changes in liver function, though prolonged use of CBD can affect the metabolism of certain drugs.
