It seems like everyone’s talking about CBD nowadays but what is it?  How is it made and what types of products can be made from it? Is CBD like THC or how does it differ from other cannabinoids? You can find the answers to those kinds of questions as well as more about M Six Labs’ products here.

CBD stands for cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. This differs from THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which is psychoactive. CBD has become very popular due to its wide range of applications and products alongside its change in legalization status at the federal level in the United States after the 2018 Farm Bill was passed.

As the name implies, CBD edibles are products infused with cannabidiol that are consumed orally and absorbed through the stomach. Edibles can be brownies and cookies, candies, chews and gummies, sodas — really anything that you’d eat or drink. Edibles are different from other products you either smoke or vape, use topically like a lotion, or absorb sublingually like tinctures (though you can drop CBD oil from a tincture onto food and consume it that way).

A cannabinoid is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant; of the almost 500 chemical compounds, roughly 66 of them are considered cannabinoids. The most commonly known one is Δ9-THC (specifically delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), but this also includes Δ8-THC (delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). Cannabinoids have a variety of effects, uses, and properties and, as such, have varying legalities depending on state or country.

For more information on if cannabinoids may be legal or illegal in your area, we recommend that you research your local, county, and state laws or legislature as cannabinoid-related laws have been changing frequently over the past decade and will continue to do so for quite some time.

Delta-8 (also known as delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol or Δ8-THC) is a less potent isomer of Δ9-THC with psychoactive properties. Delta-8 derived from hemp plants with less than 0.3% THC content is considered federally legal. It may be partially synthesized from cannabidiol (CBD) or directly harvested from the hemp plant. While Delta-8 from hemp was made legal federally in the 2018 Farm Bill, state laws are uncertain how to categorize or regulate this substance, even in states where cannabis products are recreationally legal.

Hemp (also may be referred to as industrial hemp) is a grouping of Cannabis sativa cultivars. They may be used in industrial applications such as feed, fiber, and hempseed oil for food or for medical purposes. Legally, for a cultivar to be considered hemp, it must have less than 0.3% THC content. However, hemp tends to have much higher concentrations of CBD, making it perfect for the United States’ burgeoning legal CBD industry.

Terpenes are chemicals found in all plants that determine their smell, taste, or what colors they have. Limonene, for instance, is associated with citrusy smells and flavors and is commonly found in the fruit rinds of lemons, oranges, and grapefruits. Pinene, as it’s named, is associated with pine smells.

Cannabis also has terpenes which are responsible for the different flavors, smells, and colors of a specific strain or plant.

While it might seem like these are interchangeable, hempmarijuana, and cannabis have different legal definitions and uses.

  • Cannabis refers to the plant itself. In federally legal industrial hemp, those would be Cannabis sativa cultivars.
  • Hemp is cannabis that has less than 0.3% THC content. Despite the low THC content, this plant is federally legal and has higher CBD content, making it perfect for processing into CBD products.
  • Marijuana is the colloquial term for cannabis that has more than 0.3% THC content and remains illegal federally as well as in some states.

Though there is some nuance to these definitions, this is a quick summary of their differences, especially as the industry tries to reinforce and clarify which terms to use for regulatory and legal purposes. We encourage you to research these regulations in your own state as the hemp and cannabis industries are evolving quickly.

CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. THC is the psychoactive substance most responsible for the high associated with marijuana use. This substance is illegal in the United States federally, though some states have legalized it for medical or recreational uses. CBD is a non-psychoactive substance; there is no high with CBD but some medical studies have shown a wide variety of uses — none of which we can remark on due to current regulatory standards. CBD derived from hemp is federally legal within the United States but some states may still consider it illegal regardless of where it comes from.

All of our CBD products are derived from hemp with less than 0.3% THC content and within federal regulations and guidelines. While some of these products may have trace amounts of THC under the federal limit, we do also sell THC-free products.

CBD extract is as it sounds: it’s CBD that’s been extracted from hemp that can then be processed and turned into other CBD products. The two main kinds of extracts are CBD isolate and CBD distillate. Distillate contains roughly 50-70% CBD with the remainder being other naturally found cannabinoids. Isolate, on the other hand, is virtually pure CBD with up to 99% CBD with trace amounts of the other cannabinoids. Both have different uses and properties. For instance, isolates are preferred when making THC-free products whereas distillates might want other cannabinoids for synergistic effects and purposes (called the “Entourage effect”).

M Six Labs wholesales and processes both CBD isolate and CBD distillate. Both are processed to have minimal (less than 0.3%) THC.

Full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD extracts are similar, but different, to isolates and distillates. Full-spectrum CBD is much like your typical distillates: it contains CBD alongside other cannabinoids and up to 0.3% THC content. Broad-spectrum CBD still contains different cannabinoids but is almost entirely (but not completely) THC-free. These are different from CBD isolate which is virtually pure CBD.
