No. Our CBD (cannabidiol) products derive from plants that are clone-bred and tested to be 0% THC. This means they do not contain any of the psychoactive/mind-altering chemical THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) that is found in recreational marijuana products and makes someone “high.”
Cannabis is the scientific name for a plant classification. Unfortunately, most people casually use the word Cannabis interchangeably with Marijuana or Hemp. This is not scientifically accurate and can be confusing – but the explanation of the differences between Marijuana and Hemp is very simple.
• Marijuana Cannabis is one variety of clone-bred plant in the Cannabis classification. It bred for only one purpose – to get its user “high.” This happens because the breeding process is intended to produce a strong psychoactive/mind-altering chemical called THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).
• Hemp Cannabis is the second variety of plant in the Cannabis classification. This is also a clone-bred plant, but unlike Marijuana Cannabis, it is not bred to produce a “high.” Instead, Hemp Cannabis is bred for two other reasons: For Medicinal purposes, or for Industrial purposes like clothing fiber, nutritional products, cosmetics, etc.
Either way, it has such low levels of THC (our products are 0% THC), that it has no psychoactive effects. This is the single most distinctive characteristic that distinguishes Hemp Cannabis from Marijuana Cannabis.
Aside from having different uses, the two kinds of Hemp plants look different: The Medicinal Hemp in our CBD products comes from the flowers and leaves of low-growing, bushy plants. Industrial Hemp is a high-growing plant that looks like corn stalks. Its derivative products come from the stem and fibers.
As mentioned above, Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis plant classification.
CBD (cannabidiol) oil is an extract of the leaves and flowers of the Hemp Cannabis plant specifically bred for Medicinal purposes. CBD is one of at least 113 different cannabinoid chemicals in those plants. The CBD in the oils produces their beneficial therapeutic effects. Chemically, our Hemp plants are bred to have the highest concentration of CBD and 0% THC (the psychoactive chemical). This is important because the CBD content in oils can vary tremendously among manufacturers and you should be sure you buy from a trusted source like CBD Nature’s Cure.
As mentioned above, CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the chemicals/cannabinoids in CBD Oil. It represents something in the range of 40% of the cannabinoids extracted from the flowers and leaves of the Hemp Cannabis plant. Other naturally-occurring chemicals in CBD oil include Chlorophyll, Alkanes, Nitrogenous compounds, Amino acids, Sugars, Aldehydes, Alcohols, Ketones, Flavonoids, Glycosides, Vitamins and Pigments. Hemp Cannabis also contains the molecules of over 400 other substances.
As of 2019, CBD derived from hemp is legal nationwide at the federal level. CBD is legal in all 50 states.
No. Hemp oil contains about 40% CBD, a non-psychoactive compound. Further, our products are 0% THC (a strongly psychoactive compound).
Yes. CBD is derived from the Hemp Cannabis plant which is specifically bred for Medicinal properties – meaning it does not contain THC – a psychoactive/mind-altering compound that gets one “high.” Therefore, CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. In contrast, THC is a compound found in the Marijuana Cannabis plant which is bred to have a high level of THC and significant psychoactive effects.
Historically, natural medicinal products that include compounds from the Hemp Cannabis plant are famous for their therapeutic uses. There are clinical trials that have shown some evidence these plants may have some positive effects on various conditions. However, the number of trials that have taken place are very small with inconclusive results. Yet, millions of people are currently using Hemp Cannabis products, claiming they help in one way or another.Also, there are ongoing and new trials being done by nations and in private industry. For example, Israel is a global leader in this research. Additionally, for many years, there have been pharmaceutical companies actively formulating and testing Hemp Cannabis compounds as the bases for synthetic medicines with similar chemical structures. As time goes on, further research will be done to determine the full extent and efficacy of Hemp Cannabis products for improving various medical conditions.
We cannot make any medical claims about CBD/Hemp Oil. It is recommended that you conduct your own research or contact your doctor about using CBD Oil for your specific physical issues.
We are not aware of any serious interactions. However, if you are taking any prescription medications, we suggest you consult with a medical professional before taking CBD products.
