You may be wondering, "well then what is the difference between marijuana and hemp?"
Hemp contains very little, and often times, barely any THC. The boom of hemp products being sold throughout the market is able to happen legally in the U.S. because unlike marijuana, hemp is formulated to have a higher dosage of CBD instead of THC.
To fully understand the benefits of CBD, you need to be aware of how cannabinoids interact with the human body. Two kinds of cell receptors in our bodies, called CB1 and CB2, comprise the Endocannabinoid system. These cell receptors are found throughout important systems like the digestive tract, central nervous system, cardiovascular system and immune system, and are only activated by cannabinoids. Studies have shown that the human body naturally produces cannabinoids, called Endocannabinoids that interact with the CB1 and CB2 cell receptors in our bodies to better regulate basic functions like mood, appetite, pain and sleep. This is why CBD works so well in the human body!
