Our Phytocannabinoid-Rich Hemp Oil comes from naturally developed genetic strains of Broad Spectrum Phytocannabinoid-Rich (PCR) industrial hemp.
Hemp is a term used to classify varieties of the Cannabis plant that contain 0.3% or less THC content (by dry weight).
Marijuana is a term used to classify varieties of the Cannabis plant that contain more than 0.3% THC (by dry weight) and can induce psychotropic or euphoric effects on the user.
One of the main differences between hemp and marijuana is the chemical composition contained within each plant. Both hemp and marijuana can produce high amounts of CBD, which is the non-intoxicating cannabis compound; however, THC is produced at very different levels when comparing the two.
Hemp can contain no more than 0.3% THC by dry weight, while marijuana can contain up to 30% THC content.
Due to the difference between their levels of THC, hemp and marijuana are regulated very differently under the law.
The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 federally legalized hemp and hemp-derived products that contain no more than 0.3% THC.
Marijuana, on the other hand, is still treated as a controlled substance and is federally illegal under the Controlled Substance Act.
