DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CBD AND THC
It is important to differentiate between hemp and marijuana. Both plants are derived from the Cannabis sativa species, however, their properties are markedly different.
The term ‘hemp’ is commonly used to describe non-psychoactive forms of the Cannabis Sativa plant specially cultivated for CBD extraction. Hemp has long stalks, thin leaves and has a high Cannabidiol (CBD) content, which is non-psychoactive, and very low Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content, usually less than 0.2%. Royal Organics Premium CBD extract contains no THC thanks to our extensive purification process in which any trace of THC is removed.
The term ‘Marijuana’ on the other hand is generally used to describe the form of the Cannabis Sativa plant that contains high levels of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is a psychoactive compound. The concentration of THC in marijuana can reach levels of up to 40%. The Cannabis Sativa plant containing these high levels of THC is generally cultivated for medical and recreational use.
