The plant Cannabis sativa has two primary species, hemp and marijuana. Both contain CBD, but there’s a much higher percentage in hemp. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is a psychoactive (affects the mind) compound in cannabis. It creates the ‘high” feeling that is connected to marijuana. Hemp has a very low (less than 0.3%) level of THC and produces no psychoactive effects. “Both CBD and THC bind to cannabinoid receptors in your body, which then set off a series of reactions in the brain and spinal cord that ultimately produce their effects.”

Hemp is a variety of Cannabis sativa. These plants have served a wide variety of purposes for more than 10,000 years: fiber (from the plant’s stems), protein (from seeds), oils and smokable portions (from the leaves and flowers). Hemp fibers can be used to make items including paper, clothing, furnishing fabric, rope, and building materials. (The Differences Between Hemp and Marijuana 2020).
Industrial hemp was legal in the United States until Congress passed the Marihuana Tax Act in 1937. Almost 80 years later, the Farm Bill made it so states could regulate the production of hemp and, as a result, CBD. A few years later a new Farm Bill made it federally legal to grow hemp.
Hemp oil is the oil extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant. There are no cannabinoids—CBD or THC—in hemp oil. This ingredient is packed with healthy fats and often appears in beauty products for its moisturizing benefits.
CBD (cannabidiol) is a compound found primarily in the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. CBD is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant with therapeutic potential. (Every Question You Have About CBD-Answered).
The endogenous cannabinoid system is named after the plant that led to its discovery. It is considered one of the most important systems involved in establishing and maintaining human health. “Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. With its complex actions in our immune system, nervous system, and virtually all of the body’s organs, the endocannabinoids are literally a bridge between body and mind. By understanding this system, we begin to see a mechanism that could connect brain activity and states of physical health and disease.” CBD acts on cannabinoid receptors which are a system of receptors in our bodies. We have two major types of cannabinoid receptors throughout our bodies: CB1 & CB2. Both of these receptors are found in our skin. (Getting high on the endocannabinoid system)
“Why does the body have receptors for compounds in cannabis? Well, it doesn’t exactly. Cannabinoids, like THC and CBD are similar enough to compounds that our bodies naturally make, called endocannabinoids, that they can interact with this system. Normally, the endocannabinoid system is thought to play a role in a variety of functions in the body, helping to regulate things like parts of the immune system, the release of hormones, metabolism, and memory.” (Cannabidiol (CBD) – what we know and what we don’t)
CBD is gaining popularity in the beauty industry and the health and wellness world. Various studies are looking into the benefits that CBD has to offer.
