CBD/Hemp Oil Education
What Is CBD?
CBD is an abbreviation for Cannabidiol, a chemical compound found naturally in the cannabis plant. It is not mind altering like marijuana. CBD will not make you high. Over the past 40 years, there have been numerous studies that highlight the potential benefits of CBD and how it can support the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
Every mammal has an endocannabinoid system (ECS) with receptors throughout their bodies. This system is involved in almost all brain and body functions, from our ability to handle pain, stress, and anxiety to our mobility and muscle health.
Sublingual CBD oils are the most popular CBD products, thanks to their high bioavailability and ease of use. Other popular routes of administration include topical salves and patches.
Importantly, CBD has been found to be well-tolerated and absent of adverse effects at doses up to 600 MG/day. It was also comparable to placebo in producing no physiological effects at these relatively high doses.

Hemp vs. Marijuana
Both of these compounds work via their interaction with the human body’s endocannabinoid system, which “regulates regulation” within the nervous system and the immune system, but that’s where the similarities end.
What is hemp?
Hemp is defined as “the plant Cannabis sativa L., and any part of that plant…having a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”
In practice, hemp is grown most commonly for three reasons:
- Its nutritional value in the form of hemp seeds
- Its industrial value in the form of hemp stalk and hurd fiber
- Its agricultural value as a phytoremediator
However, in order to profitably grow hemp, CBD must also be extracted from the flowers of the plant. This has greatly incentivized the agricultural community to supply the CBD industry with raw materials, and it has contributed to the rapid growth seen in CBD sales over the last decade as hemp legality slowly evolved.
In addition, cannabis plants as a whole can produce only about one-third of their weight in cannabinoids. That means if they contain 30% THC, there’s very little room for other cannabinoids. Because hemp contains extremely low quantities of THC, there’s room for other cannabinoids like CBD, CBC, and CBG to be synthesized in the plant’s resinous trichomes which coat its flowers.
For this reason, CBD is most commonly extracted from hemp plants, which regularly have a CBD:THC ratio of about 30:1. Medical marijuana, on the complete opposite end of the spectrum, has a typical CBD:THC ratio of 1:100.
