One of the main questions people ask when they hear about CBD is it’s connection to cannabis. Here are the things you need to know!

1 – The cannabis plant has three main species: sativa, indica and ruderalis. Ruderalis is not used for consumption.

2 – All cannabis plants contain cannabinoids which interact with the human body’s endocannabinoid system.

3 – Over 100 different cannabinoids exist, of which cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the most well known. CBD is used as a medicinal/functional ingredient in a varied range of products, from foods to cosmetics.

4 – THC is a psychoactive ingredient and thus its use is restricted to medical use only, or banned outright. A few countries (eg Canada and Uruguay) and some US states have legalised its recreational use, with more expected to follow suit.

5 – Industrial hemp contains no or only trace amounts of THC, while marijuana contains both THC and CBD (see next slide). While known as the cannabinoid for recreational applications, THC has functional attributes too, and works in tandem with CBD in the body.

6 – Various studies exist on the most popular uses of cannabis. A 2016 US study published in “Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research” reported that medical cannabis was used in the management of the following conditions: pain (61.2%), anxiety (58.1%), depression (50.3%), headache/migraine (35.5%), nausea (27.4%), and muscle spasticity (18.4%).

7 – Cannabis plant has two primary cannabinoids, CBD and THC.

CBD (Cannabidiol)

CBD is the functional compound in cannabis. It is not psychoactive, so no restrictions on its use exist. It is reported to have anti-inflammatory and pain-killing properties. It works best in combination with THC.

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol)

THC is the psychoactive, compound in cannabis. It is largely illegal around the world, or legal on prescription only, although recreational use is beginning to be legalised in some countries.
