CBD vs. THC- What's the Difference?

When stepping into the world of hemp, you may hear people using different acronyms to describe products. Two of the most common ones when referring to the hemp plant are differences in CBD and THC. 

THC is a psychoactive compound found in cannabis plants. These pants, and level of this compound, vary based on how the plants are bed to be used. In the U.S., each state has their own regulations on how this plant can be grown and utilized.

CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis and hemp plants. Many plants bred for growing hemp ideally have low THC counts and high CBD counts. Legal hemp, according to U.S. federal law, must contain less than .3% THC. 

CBD is sold in a variety of ways form tinctures to salves, lotions, to shampoo's, and other topical and consumable products. Our hemp plants are sourced from quality plant breeders for high CBD content. 

Our plants are tested and regulated by the state of NC and must pass testing inspection prior to harvest and processing. We then have third-part labs test our extracted product before we manufacture our salves and tinctures to ensure we are compliant with federal and state laws. We then have a one final test run by a lab once products are manufactured to ensure accuracy in CBD content and ingredients. The lab also test for things like pesticides, heavy metals, herbicides, and lead. You can view all our lab results on our website under the Quick Links section at the bottom of our page. 

All of the products we manufacture are full spectrum hemp products, meaning they contain CBD and the full spectrum of other beneficial cannabinoid compounds, as well as below the legal limit of THC. 

The benefits found from full spectrum CBD products have far surpassed those that are broad spectrum or isolates, which only have limited medicinal properties.
