CBD & THC
The difference between hemp and marijuana; marijuana produces high levels of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinoil) while hemp produces very little, to no THC. THC is the psychoactive compound found in cannabis which gives one the "high" effect. Many hemp strains produce considerable amounts of CBD, (Cannabidiol) which has been extensively studied by both the U.S and Israel for it's unique healing properties. Most important, CBD produces no psychoactive affect.
All mammals have what is called an Endocannabinoid system (ECS) throughout the brain and body. When CBD enters the nervous system, studies have shown a positive regulation of appetite, digestion, immune system functions, anxiety, and pain relieving, without causing any impairing psychoactive side effects.
