Why would hemp (instead of marijuana) be grown for cannabidiol (CBD)?

Industrial hemp is naturally high in CBD and naturally low in THC, whereas most marijuana is just the opposite (high THC, low CBD). Our industrial hemp is considered Cannabis sativa L., although we have developed our own unique cultivars of this particular type of industrial hemp. Through a combination of these unique cultivars, advanced plant genetics, and cutting-edge growing techniques, an exceptionally high percentage of CBD can be produced naturally and consistently in the hemp plant. When natural CBD hemp oil is produced from these hemp cultivars – which can be grown legally in dozens of countries and whose oil can be imported to the USA legally – it doesn’t make legal or practical sense to obtain CBD oil from marijuana.
