Hemp and Marijuana come from the same plant family, but are completely different in function, cultivation and application. Marijuana generally has a high level of THC (a psychoactive compound that makes you feel “high”) and is used for medicinal or recreational purpose. Hemp contains a negligible amount of THC (but is high in CBD) and is used in dietary supplements, skin products, clothing and paper.
Just like oranges and lemons are both citrus, hemp and marijuana are both cannabis, but look different and have a different chemical makeup.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound that comes from the hemp plant. It is one of more than 85 unique compounds found in hemp, known as cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are known to promote health and keep people resilient to changes in their environment.
CBD does not make you “high.” CBD is non-psychoactive (it doesn’t make you feel euphoric) and is considered extremely safe. In fact, CBD can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC, the compound of marijuana that make you feel “high.”
That's a two part answer.
First, it strikes a balance.
The human body is self-regulating, so like a tightrope walker, it’s constantly shifting to keep balanced and healthy—a process called homeostasis. One way our bodies maintain homeostasis is via the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
The ECS is made up of receptors on cell membranes that regulate a variety of processes including eating, sleeping, relaxation and cognition. The ECS also assists in the body’s overall recovery and repair.
Secondly, cannabinoids are keys to our health. Our bodies naturally produce compounds called “endocannabinoids” (endo=inside) that bind to those receptors, like a key fitting into a lock. CBD Oil is a plant-based cannabinoid--or phytocannabinoid (phyto= plant)--that acts upon cell receptors in a similar way.
Whether formed in the body or ingested in plant-based substances like CBD Oil, cannabinoids are “keys” that can unlock your body’s natural ability to maintain health.
