From Seed to Serenity: Unveiling the Origins of CBD

Jan 11, 2024 | Canna-Guide

CBD, the acronym for cannabidiol, has surged from niche remedy to wellness phenomenon. But where does this ubiquitous compound actually come from? Buckle up, because the journey involves botany, law, and a fascinating plant family.

CBD’s birthplace is the cannabis sativa plant, which has two distinct varieties: hemp and marijuana. While they’re cousins, their “chemical personalities” differ dramatically. Marijuana boasts high levels of THC, the psychoactive compound responsible for the “high,” while hemp keeps its THC content below 0.3%, focusing instead on producing CBD.

And here’s where legality enters the story. In 2018, the U.S. Farm Bill legalized hemp-derived CBD on a federal level, opening the door for a booming industry. This distinction is crucial, as marijuana-derived CBD remains federally illegal despite growing state-level legalization.

So, next time you reach for a CBD oil, tincture, or gummy, remember it’s likely born from the humble hemp plant. Its journey begins with cultivation, where farmers nurture the plants under precise conditions. Then comes extraction, where CBD is separated from the plant material using methods like CO2 extraction or ethanol extraction. Finally, the extracted CBD is purified and formulated into the diverse products we see today.

But the story doesn’t end there. Research on CBD’s potential in various wellness areas is rapidly evolving, and its future holds exciting possibilities.
