Guía para diferenciar marihuana, cáñamo, cannabis, CBD y THC (y no mezclar churras con merinas)

Guide to differentiate marijuana, hemp, cannabis, CBD and THC (and not mix churras with merinos)

CBD is legal in Spain. Marijuana, at the moment, is not. Both come from cannabis. However, if used directly from nature, one substance does not get high and the other does. What a mess. From ProfessorCBD, we want to shed a little light on the confusion of terms so that you can speak properly about this new green gold rush.

Cannabis . It is the global term that refers to a family of ancestral plants composed of more than 100 cannabinoids and 500 other natural compounds. It is studied for multiple benefits and properties. At least three plants belong to the cannabaceae family: ruderalis, marijuana and industrial hemp. Each plant is grown with different seeds, has a different appearance, smell and properties. Saying that all cannabis is marijuana would be like saying that all dogs are Pit Bull Terriers (or any other potentially dangerous breed). Just as there are different breeds of dogs, There are different varieties of cannabis . And each one has its own characteristics.

Dope. Variety of cannabis that is characterized by its high THC content. It is usually associated with recreational use.

THC. Abbreviation for tetrahydrocannabidiol. Cannabinoid found in cannabis and produces a psychoactive or euphoric effect . If the content of the plant or
The derived product is rich in THC, this is already considered marijuana, as well as a narcotic, so its commercialization in Spain is illegal.

Hemp. The crops you work with ProfessorCBD. Industrial hemp is a variety of cannabis belonging to the species Cannabis Sativa, which is characterized by its high amount of CBD and low amount of THC (always equal to or less than 0.2%: that is, the body does not even notice it). Its regulated use in Spain is industrial.

CBD. Abbreviation for cannabidiol. One of the more than 100 cannabinoids that occur naturally in the cannabis plant. As has been said, when the species is rich in CBD and low in THC, It is called hemp. Hemp-derived CBD is one of the most studied cannabinoids. It does not produce psychoactive effects. Its use is legal in all sports competitions. Our CBD products they always have a THC level less than 0.2%. In general, it is important demand the analytics that attest to it, as well as the information on the seeds used in the crop from which it comes (they must be certified by the European Union). You will find all this information on the packaging of our products, either in the box itself or available through a QR code.

CBG. A little bonus track to give you a superlist. CBG, short for cannabigerol, is another of the cannabinoids that are abundant in hemp. It does not produce
psychoactive effects. At ProfessorCBD, we have a flower with 8% CBG that is highly appreciated by our community: La Cordobesa Cannabigerol.
