WHAT IS CBD?
Don’t want the THC, but still looking for something that may help ease aches and pains? CBD strains may be right for you.
Cannabidiol or CBD, is a cannabinoid that is less psychoactive than THC. Some have suggested that CBD can help with anxiety and stress, contain anti-inflammatory properties, protect and heal the skin, defend against bone disease and broken bones, help maintain brain health, reduce the risk of cancer, and help create better cholesterol profiles. At NEA we make no claims for medical efficacy, rather we allow you to come in and try CBD for yourself.
NEA has several strains with rare genetics that allow patients to have less of a psychoactive experience.

HEMP VS. CANNABIS DERIVED
Hemp and cannabis are the same plant with the same molecular structure. Hemp is a classification of the cannabis plant that produces very low levels of THC, less think 0.03%. Hemp and cannabis both have large varieties of strains under their umbrellas. So what’s the difference, and is one better than the other?
When you are growing a cannabis plant it produces an array of cannabinoids – THC, THCV, CBD, CBN, CBG. Hemp and cannabis plants have the same genotype.
CBD has the same molecular structure whether it is a strain that is classified as hemp or cannabis. Therefore, it can be argued that there is no difference.
The difference between hemp and cannabis is potency. Cannabis has been grown for different reasons over the course of thousands of years. The relationship between people and plants is known as ethnobotany. Over the course of thousands of years high potency cannabis was grown as medicine and hemp was grown for fuel and fiber.
With that said, there is a theory called the entourage effect, otherwise known as full spectrum. This refers to higher levels of cannabinoids being grown together in the marijuana plant to maximize therapeutic effects. Some believe that the combination of compounds in the cannabis plant produces a stronger influence.
