Descubre el cáñamo

Es mucho más que una planta.

El término "cáñamo"; se usa para referirse al cannabis que contiene un 0,3 por ciento o menos de contenido de THC por peso seco.

¿Por qué 0,3 por ciento? Esta definición se propuso por primera vez en 1979, en un libro llamado "El problema de las especies en el cannabis: ciencia y semántica".  En el libro, el autor Ernest Small aborda el hecho de que es difícil distinguir cannabis porque no hay una diferencia taxonómica real entre los dos.

Small propuso la regla del 0,3 por ciento como una posible solución, pero él mismo reconoció que es un número arbitrario.

Este número se usó en la definición legal de cáñamo, como se especifica en la Ley Agrícola de 2018 y otras leyes en los Estados Unidos.  Debido a que el nivel de THC en el cáñamo es tan bajo, es poco probable que se tu alto

  • Is CBD legal in the state of Texas?
    Is CBD legal? Hemp-derived CBD products with less than 0.3% THC are legal federally but still illegal under some state laws. Cannabis-derived CBD products, on the other hand, are illegal federally but legal under some state laws. Check local legislation, especially when traveling. Also, keep in mind that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved nonprescription CBD products, which may be inaccurately labeled.
  • What are the benefits of CBD?
    Currently, the only CBD product approved by the Food and Drug Administration is a prescription oil called Epidiolex. It's approved to treat two types of epilepsy. Aside from Epidiolex, state laws on the use of CBD vary. While CBD is being studied as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including Parkinson's disease, schizophrenia, diabetes, multiple sclerosis and anxiety, research supporting the drug's benefits is still limited. CBD use also carries some risks. Though it's often well-tolerated, CBD can cause side effects, such as dry mouth, diarrhea, reduced appetite, drowsiness and fatigue. CBD can also interact with other medications you're taking, such as blood thinners. Another cause for concern is the unreliability of the purity and dosage of CBD in products. A recent study of 84 CBD products bought online showed that more than a quarter of the products contained less CBD than labeled. In addition, THC was found in 18 products. If you plan to use products containing CBD, talk to your doctor.
  • What are the different types of CBD?
    CBD products are available in three forms: Full-spectrum CBD.This type of CBD retains all components of the cannabis plant, including a small amount of THC. While federally legal full-spectrum CBD products will always have less than 0.3 percent THC, it’s important to know that THC is still present in full-spectrum products. Broad-spectrum CBD.This version has all components of the cannabis plant, except for THC. CBD isolate.This form is pure CBD, with no other compounds from the cannabis plant.
  • Can you get ‘high’ from CBD?
    The specific cannabinoid substance found in marijuana that makes you high is called THC – the psychoactive part of the drug. The industrial hemp production is grown to have significantly lower THC levels and higher CBD yields.
  • Can you overdose on CBD?
    It’s always best to stick to the manufacturer’s instructions on the product purchased but if you notice any adverse effects such as dry mouth, low blood pressure and drowsiness, discontinue use and consult your GP.
  • Will You Test Positive for THC?
    The simple answer is yes, because effectively this is a THC product and it will show up.
