Ace high shake is the bud of the hemp plant. Hemp is cannabis with less than 0.3% THC, the part of the marijuana plant that gets you high. While THC can drastically alter your mood and perception, the cannabinoid CBD may treat a variety of aches, pains, and other conditions. For this reason, hemp-based CBD has become a sought-after foundation for therapeutic oils. CBD compounds mixed with essential oils are frequently used as creams, tinctures, and blends for massage therapy and other uses.
CBD is one of the most well-known cannabinoids produced by the C. sativa plant. It is one of more than 500 compounds that come from cannabis plants. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is another well-known cannabinoid that produces the strong psychoactive effects of being “high.” Consuming or using CBD alone will not cause the “high” associated with THC. CBD and THC are present in all types of cannabis plants but in different quantities. Certain varieties of C. sativa and Cannabis indica contain higher amounts of THC and low amounts of CBD. As of 2014, the average cannabis plant contained 12% THC and less than 0.15% CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, is a non-intoxicating variety of C. sativa. Under the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp plants must contain less than 0.3% THC. The average hemp plant has up to 18% CBD. CBD’s chemical composition and its effects are the same, whether extracted from hemp or other varieties of the cannabis plant. It is illegal to add CBD to foods, dietary supplements, and products marketed as having therapeutic benefits.
