Facts about the Cannabis plant:

Cannabis is also known with the name of marijuana and hemp, these names indicate different varieties of the same plant which are found in different parts of the world but commonly it is called as Cannabis plant. Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica are the main varieties of the Cannabis plant and both of these varieties are cross-bred for medicinal purposes. 

Background of Marijuana in the USA
Thomas Jefferson (3rd U.S. President) once said that “Hemp is of the first necessity to the wealth and protection of the country”.

Few hundred years back when early American settlers have decided to cultivate crops on the agriculture land of the eastern American, then they ordered contractual farmers to cultivate marijuana crops. This order was given because they were aware of the extraordinary benefits of marijuana seeds, stems, and leaves. Its stem was used for making textiles, papers, ropes, and other similar products.

It’s been a growing trend for using CBD products in the recent years as peoples use to seek more for marijuana seeds because of its miraculous health benefits as you might have heard in the popular print media that how these seeds were beneficial in treating anxiety, depressions, migraines, diabetes, and autism and even for cancer. 

One thing needs to be clear here that there are two parts of the marijuana plants one which gets you “high” and others which do not. 

What is Cannabinoids:

There are about 113 active compounds found in the Cannabis plant and they are called cannabinoids. The prominent cannabinoids of Cannabis plants are THC, CBD, and CBN

Hemp and Marijuana are the two main species of the Cannabis plant. Marijuana is the female specie while Hemp is male specie. 

Hemp contains more than 20% CBD while THC is less than 0.3% which is non-traceable. 

The marijuana plant contains about 10% CBD and more than 20% of THC. This is the main difference between these two plants for being addictive potential. 

THC has psychoactive (affecting the mind) properties while CBD is a non-psychoactive compound of the Cannabis plant.

Flowers and buds of Marijuana plants are processed to extract compounds that are used to make psychoactive drugs. Recreational marijuana contains high amounts of THC compound which is the main psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. Marijuana contains low amounts of CBD, a non-psychoactive compound of the cannabis plant.

In contrast, the Hemp plant is processed to produce hemp seed oil, hemp fiber, and hemp CBD extract. The hemp CBD extract is the main compound of “Plant not Pills” products and it is extracted from the aerial parts of the hemp plant. CBD extract contains high amounts of CBD and a non-traceable amount of THC.

The THC compound is mainly responsible for “high” or euphoric effect in humans and animals as the Hemp contains a very minor amount of THC so Hemp plant does not cause a high effect.

Nervous system cells, and,
Immune system cells,
There are about 113 cannabinoids are extracted from the cannabis plant but most noticeable are CBD, THC, and CBN.

  • Serotonin receptors
