Of the nearly 400 compounds found in cannabis, 60 of these are completely specific to their plant genus. Scientist call these unique compounds "cannabinoids." Of these cannabinoids one in particular cannabidiol (CBD) seems poised to revolutionize medicine as we know it.
The most important property of CBD is that it is non-psychoactive, unlike its counter part THC. THC is the chemical responsible for marijuana’s psychological effects. An average batch of marijuana contains anywhere from 5-20% THC content. Some premium marijuana can have up to 25-30% THC. Hemp, on the other hand, has a max THC level of 0.3%, essentially making it impossible to feel any psychoactive effect or get a “high”. This threshold is heavily regulated in other countries that have legalized hemp. Hemp also has high cannabidiol (CBD) content that acts as THC’s antagonist, essentially making the minimal amount of THC useless.(1)
