CBD VS. MARIJUANA
Not all Cannabis is created equal.
CBD VS. MARIJUANA
Industrial hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. Commercially, it has been refined into paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, cosmetics, nutritional supplements, and animal feed. Although industrial hemp and the cannabis drug marijuana are both members of the Cannabis sativa species, they have distinctive biochemical compositions and uses.
Starting with the most natural and pure ingredients, PurHealthRX brings the completeness and connection of CBD to the body.

Unique to industrial hemp are the high amounts of phytocannabinoids (sometimes referred to as CBD, which is an abbreviation for cannabidiol), a prominent, naturally-occurring cannabinoid component found in cannabis sativa. Cannabidiols comprise up to 40% of the plant. CBD is “a cannabinoid devoid of psychoactive effect.” After THC (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is by far the most-studied natural cannabinoid. According to many researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered.
Phytocannabinoids are harvested from industrial hemp which has been specifically cultivated for medicinal and industrial use with high CBD content and THC levels below 0.3%. Marijuana, on the other hand, is harvested from Cannabis plants that are cultivated with high THC and low CBD content.
Through a combination of unique cultivars, advanced plant genetics, and cutting-edge growing techniques, an exceptionally high percentage of CBD oil with low levels of THC can be legally produced around the world and in the US naturally and consistently from industrial hemp. Made with the oil from these hemp cultivars, CBD can legally be distributed and sold throughout the US in a variety of products containing little or no THC*.
