Due to the wide range of misconceptions about cannabis and the compounds it contains, we gathered a few quick facts about cannabis (and the most important):

  • cannabis THAT CONTAINS LESS THAN 0.3 PERCENT THC, is considered hemp and is available for purchase.
  • cannabis THAT CONTAINS OVER 0.3 PERCENT THC can be found in states that have medical marijuana dispensaries or permit adult use of marijuana.
  • THC AND CBD can both be psychoactive.
  • ONLY THC can be intoxicating (meaning it creates a high).

Yes, CBD and THC are Cousins

  • Take a look below to learn how much CBD and THC have in common:
  • Both THC and CBD come from the cannabis sativa plant.
  • THC and CBD are each one of more than 100 phytocannabinoids found in cannabis.
  • CBD and THC both directly and indirectly impact multiple receptor systems in the body.
  • Both CBD and THC require decarboxylation from their acids forms, CBDA and THCA, to become CBD and THC.
  • Both THC and CBD have medicinal benefits.
