Here are a few facts about CBD derived from industrial hemp: Agricultural hemp and medical marijuana both come from the Cannabis Sativa L. plant. Agricultural hemp, which is often referred to as “hemp stalk,” grows differently than THC-containing cannabis, and looks similar to bamboo. THC-producing marijuana plants are grown to an average of five feet in height, spaced six to eight feet apart. Agricultural hemp is grown to a height of 10 to 15 feet or more before harvest, placed three to six inches apart. Hemp has little potential to produce high-content THC when pollinated. As long as agricultural hemp plants are pollinated by members of their own crop, the genetics will remain similar with low levels of THC. There is a strong legal argument that production and distribution of CBD oils/products derived from imported raw material industrial hemp is not a violation of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA); in fact, one Colorado law firm has published a written opinion making the case.
