Are Marijuana and Hemp the Same Thing?
Marijuana and hemp, while closely related, are two entirely different plants. THC and CBD compounds can be found in both plants, although THC is much more abundant in marijuana, while CBD+CBDA is more central to hemp. It is beneficial to have a trace amount (under 0.3%) of THC in CBD products. The two cannabinoids work together, as nature intended, to produce more effective results.
Will Products Containing THC Make My Pet “High”?
While ElleVet CBD+CBDA products contain trace levels of THC, this amount is nowhere near enough to produce a psychoactive response, or “high.”Instead, a complete spectrum of cannabinoid compounds complements one another to provide more powerful relief for your pet.
What’s the Legal Status of Hemp-Derived CBD?
Hemp-derived CBD+CBDA products such as ElleVet Oil and Chews with less than .3% THC are legal under federal law, and not listed as a controlled substance. However, marijuana-derived CBD products are NOT legal (unless you live in a state with legalized marijuana sales). Regardless of the plant, all marijuana and hemp products containing more than 0.3% THC are still considered controlled substances.
