Is CBD Different Than Marijuana?
Cannabis. Hemp. Marijuana. Weed. THC. CBD.
There is so much fear, confusion and misconceptions about these words. Our mission at Mountain Mama is to break through all the stereotypes and provide education about this controversial topic. There is a BIG difference between Hemp and Marijuana, and I’ll break it down simply for you.
Both Hemp and Marijuana come from a Cannabis plant. But did you know that they are two different species?
THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the psychoactive component that can get one “high.” Hemp on the other hand contains such trace amounts of THC that just the CBD (cannabidiol) oil is harvested giving us all the healing benefits without the psychoactive effects.
So you can see there is no reason to fear CBD Oil! Federal and State governments have recognized the difference between psychoactive and non psychoactive components of the same plant.
