How to recognize CBD ?

Although it became fully legal in November 2020, CBD still suffers from a negative image among part of the population. This is mainly due to a lack of knowledge of the general public who associate or confuse it with illegal cannabis. However, the virtues of CBD are now well established, and CBD-based products are available in pharmacies! To remove all these ambiguities, we offer this small guide to help you recognize CBD for sure.

Recognizing CBD by touch, smell and taste.

CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) are two molecules that from a chemical point of view are admittedly quite similar. THC, with psychotropic effects, is present in cannabis, the famous weed, whose trade and consumption are illegal in France. CBD comes from the hemp plant, whose cultivation, trade and consumption are perfectly legal. Is it possible to distinguish CBD by our senses alone?

Distinguish CBD by touch

CBD flowers for consumption are only from the female plants. CBD flowers, unlike cannabis flowers, are not sticky and are a brighter green color. If you lightly squeeze them between your fingers, you should feel more like fat with an almost soapy effect. The sticky feel of the flowers is characteristic of a high THC content. If it is CBD resin, it will offer a smooth and sticky touch rather characteristic, whereas the hash of cannabis is often more dry and granulous. Whether it's flower or resin, this initial touch approach already ensures that you're dealing with CBD.

Recognizing CBD by smell.

Because CBD has no specific smell, it is not obvious to rely solely on the sense of smell to recognize it for sure. It is the terpenes present in the hemp flower that will release their aromas, especially in the case of consumption by inhalation or vaporization. Each flower will develop its own aromatic palette, which is one of the great pleasures of CBD consumption. Cannabis, on the other hand, has a more specific, stronger smell, that of weed and its psychotropic effects.

Recognizing CBD by taste.

Taste, on par with the sense of smell, is very much in demand when using CBD. Each species of hemp, Indica or Sativa, offers different flavors, not to mention the hybrid varieties that offer tastes of a beautiful complexity. These flavors can be sweet, woody, sour or more spicy. Citrus, pepper or earthy are some of the tastes that the most trained palate can identify. This richness is out of all proportion to the consumption of hash from cannabis.

The provenance of CBD.

There is actually a simple way to ensure that you are dealing with CBD and not illegal weed. All you have to do is make your purchases from a reliable, recognized dealer who offers quality products and whose origin is clearly identified. At Magna CBD, all our CBD products, whether flowers, oil or resins offer all the guarantees of quality and traceability. In addition, in accordance with the legislation in force, the THC level is kept below 0.3%, which ensures that you do not suffer from undesirable psychotropic effects.

How to be sure to have CBD ?

There are therefore techniques to identify CBD almost certainly. Appealing to your senses (touch, smell, taste) is a good method and over time, you will see your expertise grow in each of these senses. When consuming, the induced effects also allow you to recognize CBD for sure: no loss of control or feeling of drunkenness, no hallucinations or bad trip. CBD brings you relaxation, stimulation and energy, without negative and uncontrollable effects. By ordering your CBD products (flowers, hash, oil ...) from us, you are assured of impeccable quality.

You are now an expert at telling the difference of CBD vs Cannabis

As you may have realized, it's pretty easy to differentiate CBD from legally grown hemp, from illegal cannabis with its always questionable provenance and all too often undesirable effects. CBD is:

  • a bold bright green flower or a smooth, sticky resin;
  • rich and complex scents and flavors, sometimes subtle, sometimes strong aromas, reflecting the specific terpene profile of the hemp plant;
  • pleasant soothing and relaxing effects, without bad delusions;
  • a known and transparent source and method of manufacture.

You have become a true expert! You just have to choose your next CBD product, in full knowledge!
