Does CBD Have THC?
If you are interested in trying CBD hemp oil but are unsure if it contains THC, we will explain the difference between the hemp we use for our products and the hemp that contains the psychoactive ingredient known as THC. All of Made by Hemp’s products are created from responsibly sourced industrial hemp from various parts of Europe. This industrial hemp does not contain THC but does contain helpful cannabinoids that can have a positive effect on the nervous system as well as other parts of the body.
What’s the difference between CBD & THC?
But, does CBD have THC? There is a difference between industrial hemp and marijuana. The biggest between the two is the differing levels of CBD and THC. The problem with taking medical CBD from marijuana is that it is not legal in different places and you will require a prescription from a doctor to be able to get it.
CBD and THC are both types of cannabinoids found in hemp. Since they are quite similar on a more scientific and molecular level this has caused quite a bit of confusion within the scientific community. However, their chemical properties are different enough to be able to separate the two. Since industrial hemp contains less than 0.3% THC, this makes it perfectly legal in the United States.
How Does CBD Work?
CBD is also known to regulate endocannabinoid receptors, which naturally occur in the body. Those receptors are located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems and they assist with control of appetite, pain, mood, and memory. CBD has been found to negate the psychoactive effects caused by THC. When you take CBD, it will block the CB1 receptors, which means that THC will not have an effect on them.
