CBD is a booming industry, with more people making this hemp derivative part of their daily routine.  If you want to get into the CBD world, either as a consumer or a business owner, you must be properly educated.  As you probably are aware, there are a lot of terms used when discussing CBD, and not knowing what they mean can be a great disservice to you. That is why it is time for you to know real talk in this awesome industry.

Why is Knowing Your Lingo Crucial as Either a CBD Customer or Business Owner?

The world of CBD is considered by many to be fairly new, which means that it is constantly evolving.  As it evolves,  there is an influx of terminology being developed in order to differentiate between different products. 

Currently, at the time of this article, the CBD market is packed with a wide range of products, meaning that understanding the right terminology is how you can determine whether or not a product could potentially meet your needs, preferences, or goals. For instance, knowing the difference between unique strains can have everything to do with whether or not you find a product that can be blissful.

Additionally, if you’re a CBD business owner, you must be educated on this industry.  Hence, knowing the lingo is a huge part of that.  As a business owner, you are an authority, and customers will be making inquiries as they try to find the right products.  So, understanding the basic lingo is a must.

Terms You Should Want to Know and Get Familiarized With

Now, let’s break down the most commonly used lingo regarding CBD.

Hemp

The plant from which commercial CBD is derived.  Hemp and marijuana both belong to the cannabis family, and therefore contain CBD in their chemical compositions, but only CBD that comes from hemp is legal.  This is because hemp contains only 0.3 percent THC while marijuana contains much more, and more than 0.3 percent THC is illegal as it’s considered a psychoactive compound.

Cannabidiol (CBD)

One of the cannabinoids in the hemp plant, and it’s the most abundant.  Cannabidiol has been thoroughly studied for its wide variety of effects.

THC

Another cannabinoid that exists in the hemp plant.  Again, it’s a psychoactive compound, and it’s far more abundant in marijuana, which is why it makes users high.  But, since it’s only present in 0.3 percent of hemp, hemp-based products cannot make a person high.

Cannabinoid

Like we said, CBD and THC are cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, and they are easily the most well-known.  However, the truth is that the cannabis plant has lots of cannabinoids.  Cannabinoids are plant compounds that are unique to the cannabis plant, and they have the distinction of working with the body’s endocannabinoid system.

Terpenes

These are another class of compounds found in the cannabis plant, as well as all plants.  Terpenes are chemical compounds that have been found to boast healing properties of their own, and they’re what give plants their unique smells and tastes.  Some terpenes found in the cannabis plant include myrcene, linalool and limonene.

Strain

A cannabis plant’s strain refers to the unique composition of terpenes and cannabinoids found in that particular plant.  Different strains produce unique effects due to the fact that different terpenes and cannabinoids affect us in different ways. The big three of them are:

Full Spectrum

Refers to the way in which the hemp is extracted.  If a hemp extract is full spectrum, it contains every plant compound in that particular hemp plant.  This includes CBD and THC, as well as all of the terpenes.

Broad Spectrum

Hemp extract containing every plant compound with the exception of THC.

CBD Isolate

An extract containing nothing but CBD.

The Entourage Effect

Refers to the effect produced when a person takes full spectrum hemp extract.  Researchers believe that when every plant compound is taken together, the potential positive effects of each compound become more pronounced.

Concentration

Concentration refers to the concentration of hemp extract compared to the rest of the ingredients in a particular CBD product.  It’s typically measured by milligrams.

Tinctures

A tincture is an oral product that combines hemp extract with a carrier oil.  It is usually taken under the tongue, and it comes in liquid form.  Tinctures are popular because they can take effect within thirty minutes and last for a few hours.

Topical

Topicals are hemp-based products that are massaged into the skin.  These are good for localized discomfort and skin-related issues.

Health & Beauty

Providing the skin, hair, and other areas of the body with a whole array of cannabinoids. We have a health & beauty category which offers smoothing skin treatments, luxurious body butters, restorative bath bombs, invigorating hair products, and more, all while containing the absolute best lab-tested hemp on the market.

Edibles

Basically, these are edible products containing hemp extract that can be properly digested.  They can provide effects for hours, but they make take up to two hours to actually take effect.  Popular edibles include gummies, hard candies, honey sticks, etc.

Capsules

Are a convenient method for cannabidiol delivery that result in a long-lasting cannabidiol effect.

Drinkables

Providing users with full spectrum cannabinoids in the form of a satisfying beverage.

Flower

Buds of the hemp plant that contain a full spectrum of cannabinoids. Can either be smoked with a pipe, rolled, or vaporized with a CBD flower pen.  Plus, they can also be consumed with cooked or baked foods CBD flower comes in different strains and milligram strengths.

  • CBD Flower Pre-Rolls: Contain CBD hemp flower that is broken down into what they call “shake” so that they can be rolled with paper into a joint. Pre-rolls take out the labor of rolling CBD flower yourself. It’s important to choose high quality, lab tested pre-rolls that are free of pesticides and heavy metals, which you can find in our lab tests.
  • CBD Flower Pens / Pipes / Vaporizers: Are used to vape or smoke hemp.
  • CBD Hash: Consists of the sticky resin from the hemp plant. It contains high amounts cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.  CBD hash is most often smoked but can also be vaped with specialized vaporizers.

CBD Pet Products

These types of products, be it in the forms of treats, tinctures, or even topical solutions, are made specifically for our furry companions.  Plus, each cannabidiol-infused pet product is lab-tested for potency and purity.

Smokeless CBD

A tobacco-free product that absorbs through the tissue of the cheek, much like traditional snuff. This delivery method is incredibly fast-acting due to the impressive absorbency, making it one of the most efficient ways to consume CBD. Choose your flavor and experience hemp like never before.

Vapes

Vaping refers to any CBD products that are meant to be inhaled via a compatible device.  You can find hemp-infused e-liquids, pre-filled CBD carts, disposable devices, and even flower to be vaped using a compatible unit. They tend to provide more pronounced effects, and they take effect within minutes.

  • CBD Vape Oil: Designed to be vaped out of a CBD vape pen.  With CBD vape oil bottles, you can refill a CBD vape pen cartridge/tank multiple times. Each milliliter of e-liquid provides around 700 puffs. Available in isolate and full spectrum forms.
  • CBD Vape Kits (with battery and cartridge): Easiest way to start vaping. Just choose your setup, flavors, strength, and cartridges and enjoy your vaping experience after your kit arrives. Perfect for newbies or for those who want to save money and time by getting everything needed in one discreet package.
  • Disposable CBD Pens: Pre-loaded with CBD oil and a battery designed for one-time use. Each pen contains 1mL of full spectrum CBD vape oil.  Disposable pens are activated by inhaling and last around 300 puffs. These devices are easier to use than standard vape kits and are to be thrown away after use.
  • CBD JUUL Pods: Compatible with your standard portable and pocket friendly JUUL device.  Just snap it into your JUUL device and you are good to go.
  • CBD Carts: Pre-filled carts containing CBD e-liquid.
  • 510-Threaded Carts: Refillable Carts that attach to any compatible 510 connected devices.
  • CBD Dabs, Wax, and Shatter: A potent and bioavailable way to get your CBD fix. Just get out your dab rig, water pipe, or CBD concentrate delivery system and take that hit.
  • CBD Vape Drip Additives and Concentrates: When you need that extra kick, vape drips and concentrates (additives) are an extremely potent way maximize your CBD dosage. Just add some drops to potentize your favorite e-juice.
  • CBD Vape Pens: Refillable devices that are designed to vaporize CBD vape oil. There are two kinds of pens: Buttonless Pens – Designed to vape CBD isolate.  Variable Voltage Pens – They have buttons and are made for full spectrum and isolate vape oil.  Note: All pens and cartridges are 510 thread.

Just Another Way to Expand Your Overall CBD Knowledge

Sure, the world of CBD terminology can be intimidating, but knowing the basic terms can help you purchase the right product for your needs or simply select the right products to line your shelves if you are a business owner.  At the end of the day, it is all about knowing what to look for in a CBD product, and this guide of terms will help you make the right choices.

The hybrid Artura is the next step in the evolution of vehicles at McLaren. Not only is the McLaren Carbon Fibre Lightweight Architecture (MCLA) new, but the high-performance hybrid powertrain is a fresh element as well. McLaren Automotive CEO Mike Flewitt described the Artura, “The next-generation hybrid supercar. A distillation of everything we’ve ever learned.”

The Artura is lightweight and strong thanks to the carbon fiber monocoque at the center of the new MCLA platform. Utilizing four new kinds of carbon fiber, a new resin system, and new core material, the MCLA platform provides the stiffness and strength needed for the high-performance vehicle. The Artura also features a carbon fiber windscreen surround.

Carbon fiber and superformed aluminum add a seamless look to the Artura. The vehicle is sculpted with details such as hidden door inlet ducts to harness airflow and the rear spoiler and diffuser add to downforce for stability.

The 671 horsepower for the Artura is provided by a new twin-turbocharged V6 engine with an 95PS E-Motor. The car can reach a top speed of 205 mph.

Options on the Artura include the MSO Carbon Fibre Pack with a gloss carbon fiber front splitter, diffuser, rear bumper, and door mirror casings, and the MSO Carbon Fibre Interior Pack providing carbon fiber extended gearshift paddles, a steering wheel clasp, window switch surrounds, extended sill finishers, and central tunnel bridge.

The brakes on the Artura are carbon-ceramic discs and the tires are Pirelli P-ZERO™.

All of this style and power weighs in at a curb weight (fluids + 100% fuel) of only 3,384 lbs.

Speaking on the Artura and the new technology, Mr. Flewitt said, “We pioneered ultimate performance hybrid technology with P1™ and Speedtail. Artura is the pure distillation of our collective expertise and experience. It’s the next generation McLaren.”

State Agriculture Regulators Support Raising Federal THC Ceiling for Hemp

On Thursday, a group of state agricultural regulators swiftly voted in favor of supporting an amendment to the “federal definition of hemp to increase the total THC concentration to 1% or less,” a major proposed shift.

Members of the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA) met this week to discuss a number of policy amendments, including COVID-19 responses and racial equity, workplace safety, and hemp. Should the powerful group’s push to increase the THC limit succeed, it would reshape the US hemp landscape. The 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized hemp in the United States, currently defines hemp as cannabis with .3% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

Bill Richmond, the head of the US Department of Agriculture’s Domestic Hemp Production Program, spoke on Wednesday at the start of the Plant Agriculture & Pesticide Regulation Committee meeting, during which the hemp proposal was put forth and passed for a full Association vote Thursday. 

Richmond leads the team in charge of rule making, public education, and outreach efforts with state agriculture departments and Indian tribes. 

Shortly after the 2018 Farm Bill passed, Richmond said that his team “jumped right into developing” rules. In January, the USDA released its final rule for the regulation of hemp. After the interim final rule was released in 2019, more than 6,000 comments poured in during the open public comment period. NASDA is among the individuals and entities that have called for fixes to the rule, and, among their suggestions was that the “negligence threshold” for THC be raised to 1%.

Richmond thanked NASDA members for the time they spent on thoughtful comments that the USDA used in their rule making on hemp. 

“I know it’s an incredible lift for folks to give us those documents, to give us that data, and just know that we appreciate it so much,” Richmond said. The final rule is a result of those thousands of comments, he added. 

“Your industry is loud and clear that a lot of the requirements and regulations of the interim document were difficult to meet or expensive to meet or cumbersome. And so we really tried hard to loosen some of the requirements around growing hemp,” Richmond said. 

Richmond said that his team at the USDA spent the most time on sampling and testing requirements. Another change between the interim rule and the final rule is around the timeframe allowed between hemp harvest and required sampling. 

“We said that that time period can only be 15 days,” in the interim rule, which led to “almost universal opposition to that requirement. We heard you loud and clear until that time window is now doubled to 30 days,” Richmond said. 

In the interim final rule, one area that was met with opposition from hemp industry stakeholders involved the requirement that labs have to be registered with the Drug Enforcement Administration. 

“We learned very quickly that there was nowhere near enough labs out there to be able to conduct testing. DEA allowed us to relax that requirement. And in the final rule, essentially, we were not able to completely remove the requirement that labs have to register with the DEA. But we were able to extend the deadline until the end of 2022. This will hopefully give us, and the testing community, more time to be able to make sure that we have as many labs as we need to get these tests done,” Richmond said. 

There’s also the issue of “hot hemp,” or cannabis that comes in too high in THC to meet the legal definition of hemp. Richmond said that the USDA changed the requirements around “negligence,” in part because hemp can be a difficult crop to grow. The USDA doubled the threshold for negligence from .5% THC to 1%. 

“We are trying really hard to provide flexibility as best we can to new growers as they learn how to grow compliant hemp. And so this negligence [limit] was included to basically say, ‘OK, if you make a mistake and you grow hot hemp, you aren’t going to be in trouble with law enforcement. You get a couple of chances to learn how to grow compliant hemp,’” Richmond said. 

In the interim final rule, growers of hot hemp would have had to work with law enforcement or the DEA to destroy the hemp “the same way that we would destroy marijuana,” Richmond said. 

“This is another requirement that we quickly learned that was cumbersome, difficult to meet,” Richmond said, adding that the DEA allowed for this rule to be relaxed enough to allow for on farm disposal, for example, or for growers to turn a hot hemp crop over and bury it without cops getting involved. 

Richmond pointed out that the USDA final rule on hemp could still be subject to a reopened comment period, a request for additional input, or a reissue of a revised final rule “sometime down the road.” Or, the new administration could “push” the effective date out, from one or two months to longer. 

During a brief question and answer session, Richmond fielded inquiries from state agricultural regulators. Doug Miyamoto from Wyoming asked if the USDA noticed any trends from the thousands of comments that the Department received.

“Almost a blanket opposition to the .3% threshold. Same with the DEA lab registration,” Richmond said. 

Anson Tebbetts, Vermont’s Secretary of Agriculture, Food, and Markets who submitted the hemp policy amendment, said that he believes that “hemp does have a future in agriculture.” Tebbetts added that there are many farmers in Vermont who are “excited about hemp,” but need “more tools to grow the industry.”

Tebbets spoke in favor of NASDA’s policy amendment to support a change in the federal definition of hemp to allow for more THC.

“Increasing the total THC concentration to 1% would allow for use of available seed varieties, would provide greater assurance to the producers that they have a viable crop, and still places those limits on the THC concentration,” Tebbets said. 

Steve Silverman of the Colorado Department of Agriculture added that, based on research, raising the threshold from .3% to 1% “would not have any concern in terms of public health or drug policy.” 

Florida Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Nikki Fried said that the state already has close to 30,000 acres of hemp growing. 

“In our climate and everybody growing outside, being able to allow the plants to get to 1% will certainly help our farmers here in the state,” Fried said, adding that the .3% threshold was a “complete arbitrary number when it was first created. So 1% is very doable on our end and we would again support this tenfold.”
