I have heard that CBD is the dominant cannabinoid in hemp plants. Can I just smoke or ingest hemp or ditchweed to get the healing effects of CBD?
It is true that hemp fiber or seed strains will be relatively high in CBD (compared to THC), but the overall cannabinoid content of industrial hemp will probably be low. Industrial Hemp is genetically bred to produce fiber for various products or seed for omega oil and nutritional supplements. Industrial hemp is generally not bred for resin production. CBD-rich yields from hemp are likely to be low without selective breeding for CBD content.
