Before the days of legalization, few people in modern times knew anything about marijuana except that it got you "stoned." But the last decade has led to a growing awareness of the core differences between the various cannabis subspecies – cannabis sativa, cannabis indica and cannabis ruderalis – as well as the nuances among countless strains. While some certainly still view it all as “pot,” most people who consume marijuana for medicinal or recreational purposes recognize that these three subspecies have vastly different applications. When coupled with the proper knowledge and intent, cannabis can become a core part of a daily health routine that promotes balance and total wellness.
At Harvest, we’ve spent a lot of time exploring the physical health benefits of CBD (otherwise known as cannabidiol). Although this non-psychotropic part of the cannabis plant has historically not been as widely used as its THC co-component, CBD’s healing properties are becoming more popular every day. We’re seeing consumers and patients everywhere search for ways to get more CBD in their lives, without breaking out their lighters.
Unless you’re new on the cannabis block, you’re likely no stranger to the acronym CBD. The abbreviated form of cannabidiol, CBD is the non-psychotropic part of the cannabis plant. Although it represents just one small component of the 100+ chemical compounds found in marijuana, it’s demonstrating monstrous growth. The hemp-CBD market is predicted to reach $22B by 2022.
