CBD, Hemp, and Marijuana Explained
Despite its popularity, there are still many misconceptions surrounding CBD and it is often confused with Marijuana. This confusion contributes to why people are often cautious about trying CBD products.
It all starts with Cannabis, a type of plant that consist of three species known as Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis. Cannabis plants contain over one hundred cannabinoids of which two are the most well-known: CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).
Hemp and Marijuana are two varieties of the above-mentioned cannabis species. They are differentiated by the amount of THC that can be found in them. Hemp contain less than 0.3% THC and Marijuana contains more than 0.3%.
THC is the psychoactive component that gives a user the high that is associated with smoking or otherwise using marijuana. This is what people feel when they “get stoned” from smoking or ingesting marijuana, a drug-like effect on the body.
Both Hemp and Marijuana contain cannabidiol, which is the cannabinoid that has become popular for its overall health and wellness benefits.

What to Consider When Buying Wholesale CBD Gummies
Wholesale gummies can be found in health stores, wellness shops and are also available for purchase online. With all these options, the client can really drill down on the best quality and preference that suit their needs.
It is important to confirm that the manufacturer or company selling the CBD products and gummies, can provide the following assurances:

Remember to check that your product indicates whether it contains Full-Spectrum, Broad-Spectrum or CBD isolate. This will determine whether there are traces of THC in the product or not.
Full-Spectrum products contain various cannabinoids and terpenes (the aromatic compound that give plants their distinct smell). They also contain trace amounts of THC. Even trace amounts of THC could provide a false positive during a drug test.
Broad Spectrum products have had all THC removed. They contain cannabidiol and other cannabinoids, terpenes and oils that are naturally found in the cannabis plant.
CBD isolate have had all other cannabinoids and THC removed. The process by which it is removed is called CO2 extraction. Customers looking for the safest option to enjoy their CBD products, will opt for these products.
Edibles Versus Smoking
Recreationally, cannabis or marijuana was originally consumed by means of smoking. Edibles became a popular way of consuming cannabinoids, whilst offering the user more creative and tasty ways in which to enjoy it.
When it comes to smoking versus ingesting, the main difference is how soon the effects thereof kick in and for how long. The effect of smoking marijuana will be felt within minutes, but the high will only last a couple of hours. On the other hand, the effects of edibles take longer to be felt since it is being digested. The high received from edibles will also linger much longer and even feel more potent.
Remember that THC is the component that will cause the feeling of being high. Consuming CBD products that have less than 0.3% THC in them, will not have a psychoactive effect.
