CBD vs THC: What’s the Difference?
THC and CBD are two of the main compounds called cannabinoids found in cannabis plants (both Hemp and Marijuana are Cannabis Sativa plants). That's where the similarities end and the differences begin.
Typically, CBD products contain very little or no THC, meaning it does not make you high. That’s because CBD most often comes from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant, and doesn't come with high concentrations of the mind-bending THC. Since the Farmers Bill was passed in 2018, farmers have been allowed to legally grow hemp as long as it contains 0.3 percent or less THC. At Myrtle Grove Hemp Farm, we grow hemp plants.
Myrtle Grove's CBD can be found in tinctures, balms, edibles, soaps and other forms (like smokables—coming soon!) to self-treat many conditions, including pain, anxiety, poor sleep—you name it, really.
CBD products come in four general categories: those you can inhale, those you can rub on, those you ingest, and sublingual products you absorb under your tongue. They differ in how long they take to kick in and how long they act, among other things.
Each of these products comes in three forms depending on their ingredients:
Full-spectrum CBD: These products contain all of the components of the hemp plant, including CBD and also small traces of THC and terpenes, which are plant compounds.
Broad-spectrum CBD: They contain all of the components except THC.
CBD isolates: CBD isolates products only contain CBD.
