For starters, they each have a distinct molecular structure and bind to different sets of receptors in our bodies. That means that CBD and THC have very, very different effects.
Most obviously, THC can make you feel “high” (AKA—is impairing or intoxicating), and CBD can not. Even in extremely high doses, there is no way that CBD can get you “high” like THC can.
Genetically, hemp and cannabis are the exact same plant (Cannabis sativa L. )! The only difference, legally, is the THC content. If THC tests under 0.3%-- it’s hemp. If THC tests over 0.3%-- it’s considered cannabis (and therefore federally illegal under the Controlled Substances Act).
In the research world (and the FDA), the word “cannabis” is used to describe both plants-- regardless of THC content. It can get confusing, but remember to always check your labels for this information.
Yes- if it comes from hemp (like ours). The 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp and hemp-derived compounds like CBD. In order to qualify as “hemp” and not “cannabis,” a plant’s chemical makeup must be analyzed by a third-party lab and certified to contain under 0.3% THC content.
Actually, yes. If you’re taking any prescription medication that contains a grapefruit warning, it’s best to talk to your doctor before starting a CBD regimen. This is especially important if you’re taking any cardiovascular medications, like blood thinners or blood pressure reducers.
CBD interacts with a liver enzyme called cytochrome p450, which is responsible for breaking down various substances. Altering this enzyme can increase the amount of circulating medication in the body, which intensifies its effects. If you’re on a blood pressure reducer, for instance, taking it when CBD is in your system may result in an unsafe drop in blood pressure.
Side effects can be possible in the event of a drug interaction mentioned above, but the vast majority of people don’t report any adverse effects from CBD.
A handful of test subjects in studies have experienced dry mouth and eyes, drowsiness, or appetite reduction when CBD was administered.
The current science suggests no. A number of studies have been conducted using CBD oil in concentrations of over 800mg per serving, but the vast majority of folks find dosages far below 50mg per day to be sufficient.
No. Not yet, at least.
However, the FDA has approved one cannabis-derived drug (called Epidiolex, which is purified CBD used in the treatment of hard-to-treat seizure disorders like Lennox-Gastaut and Dravet syndromes), and three cannabis-related drugs (which are synthetic cannabinoid-based and include Marinol, Syndros, and Cesamet).
