CBD vs THC
CBD and THC are found in the hemp and marijuana plants. CBD and the related cannabinoids (such as CBC, CBG, CBN, CBDV, etc.) produce a variety of wellness benefits, and are used by people and pets who want to improve stress, pain, anxiety, inflammation, fitness, and sleep.
THC on the other hand, is mostly associated as the compound which produces a “high” or euphoric effect and is the well-known compound found in marijuana.
Hemp plants are high in CBD and other beneficial cannabinoids, and low in THC (0.3% or less). This amount of THC is the legal limit for Hemp under the Farm Bills of 2014 and 2018.
CBD and THC – the full-spectrum of wellness
A small amount of THC (less than 0.3%) is is believed to enhance the effect of CBD. This is not enough THC to produce a high.
This type of product features CBD, THC, and other beneficial cannabinoids interacting with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to support wellness. These compounds work together to produce what is known as the “Entourage Effect”.
We also produce products that include only the CBD compound and remove THC. This is for people who cannot take any amount of THC for professional or medical reasons. An example of some professionals who cannot take any amount of THC are pilots, air traffic controllers, active military or law enforcement, health care professionals and commercial drivers licensees (CDL).
