All Nirvana products, including our CBD softgels, are made exclusively from hemp plants.
Hemp and marijuana are both classifications used to describe different varieties of cannabis.
According to the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, the term “Hemp” is used to classify varieties of cannabis that contain 0.3% or less THC content by dry weight. In comparison, the term “marijuana” is used to classify varieties of cannabis that contain more than 0.3% THC content by dry weight.
With less than 0.3% THC content, the amount of THC in hemp is so low that it would be impossible for it to induce intoxicating properties (or “get you high”) when consumed. Marijuana, on the other hand, can contain up to 30% THC content, and can most definitely get you high.
This key difference between hemp and marijuana is the primary reason why one of the plant varieties is completely legal under federal law (hemp) while the other (marijuana) is not.
