The medicinal value of cannabis has been known for centuries, but once federal law legalized hemp, CBD has become very popular. CBD is well regarded as effective for a variety of common ailments including seizures, pain relief, insomnia and anxiety. CBD is derived from the Hemp version of cannabis which under federal law must contain less than 0.3% THC. Hemp's cannabis cousin, marijuana is exactly the same except it contains higher amounts of THC and is known to produce a high. It's important that legal hemp contains at least some THC because CBD needs some THC in order to be effective. THC does not produce a high in low doses, but it's very important in CBD products because cannabinoids interact together. This is why some CBD products that claim to have zero THC are not effective, while products containing under 0.3% show much greater efficacy. In fact, pure CBD isolates anot effective at all because aside from lacking THC, they also lack any of the other trace cannabinoids or terpenes found in the whole hemp plant.
New science also shows terpenoids (terpenes), are just as important as cannabinoids for whole-plant therapy known as the “Entourage Effect”. Cannabis contains dozens of terpenes responsible for the unique smell and taste of marijuana strains that work in unison with cannabinoids. By stimulating the olfactory nerves, terpenes modulate mood-altering characteristics in specific marijuana strains along with THC and CBD. That’s why Indica strains tend to be more relaxing while Sativa strains are more uplifting.
