The beneficial properties of the cannabis plant are very real and for some, the potential of its therapeutic effects can be life-changing. However, this miraculous plant, like any other plant, is only as healthy as the soil it's planted in and only as safe as what its been exposed to.

The quality of the overall product greatly depends on the method of extraction. Consumers looking for CBD products should always consider the steps taken to get a product from seed to shelf, especially when using it for therapeutic benefits.

CBD and drug testing is a legitimate concern. There are a variety of situations where a drug test might be required, for employment, sports athletes, parole requirements and substance abuse programs to name a few.

Up until recently, THCV has greatly been a mystery, although with more research this compound of cannabis could be considered one of its most sought-after elements.

CB1 and CB2 receptors are evolved to respond perfectly to anandamide and other endocannabinoids, which seem to help the body maintain balance in many of its systems. But since plant-based cannabinoids fit into the same chemical "keyholes" in the receptors, humans can use them to pick up the slack when our bodies aren't producing enough of the natural equivalent.
