Scientifically, industrial CBD and marijuana are the same plant, with a genus and species name of Cannabis sativa. They have a unique genetic profile, however. Typically, industrial CBD is very fibrous with long strong stalks and few flowering buds. Marijuana plants are typically smaller, bushier, and full of flowering buds. However, newer industrial CBD varieties in the USA are being bred to have more flowers and higher yields of cannabinoids and terpenes, such as the Colorado CBD we’re now using! Most of the time, marijuana has a high amount of THC and a very low amount of CBD. CBD, on the other hand, naturally has higher amounts of CBD (in most instances) and only trace amounts of THC. Fortunately, the cannabinoid profile of CBD is ideal for people looking for benefits from cannabis without the ‘high.’ Historically, CBD has been used to make food products, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, natural plastic, and so much more. In the US, marijuana is usually used both recreationally and medicinally. The term “cannabis oil” can refer to either a marijuana or CBD-derived oil, since marijuana and CBD are two different forms of cannabis. All Green Ape CBD CBD oils are derived from CBD.
