No. Hemp and marijuana are different plants that have different effects on the body. Although they both come from the same plant species (Cannabis Sativa L), hemp contains very small amounts of THC if any, which is the compound in marijuana that gets you high.
Yes. Hemp is now a legal crop in 46 states, thanks to the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill. It is currently still banned in Idaho, Mississippi, New Hampshire, and South Dakota.
CBD (cannabidiol) is one of over 60 chemical compounds (or cannabinoids) found in the marijuana plant. It is usually the most abundant in Hemp and is certainly the compound that has gotten the most recognition for its therapeutic properties.
There are a number of ways to take CBD. The most popular method would be orally via oil drops that are placed under the tongue and held for 60 seconds before swallowing. There are also topical creams and ointments, along with smoking the flower itself or consuming edibles.
CBD oil is a liquid cannabis extract that can be derived through a number of different ways. The cleanest way is through Full Spectrum Cold Pressing.
CBD functions by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. By stimulating the endocannabinoid system, CBD promotes homeostasis, reduces pain, and decreases inflammation.
The main function of the Endocannabinoid System is to maintain homeostasis – biological harmony in response to changes in the environment.
A high-quality CBD product with minimal THC is incredibly unlikely to show up on a drug test. However, low quality CBD products may contain more traces of THC than they claim, in which case it is possible for it to be picked up on a screening.
Terpenes are essential oils found in plants that give cannabis its distinct aroma and flavor. Terpenes have many beneficial properties and work synergistically with CBD. This is known as the Entourage Effect.
Also known as “Pure CBD,” CBD isolate usually appears as a white crystalline powder. It is extracted through a process in which the CBD molecule is separated from the rest of the compounds it normally occurs with.
This is usually determined by the individual. Several factors determine dosage based on age, weight, and tolerance. It’s usually advisable to start with one dropper full and then work your way up.
Phytocannabinoids are a class of plant-based, naturally-occurring chemical compounds that influence a system in our body called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
Crude oil has a naturally dark molasses color and a slightly stronger sweeter scent. Full Spectrum Crude CBD oil can be mixed with any oil-based product.
Full spectrum means that an oil or product contains all the cannabinoids that are found in the cannabis plant in nature, rather than just CBD (Cannabidiol). Products that are isolate derived will only contain the isolated CBD molecule.
