The major difference is how industrial hemp has been bred compared to a marijuana form of Cannabis sativa. Industrial hemp is very fibrous, with long strong stalks, and barely has any flowering buds, and often grows 12-15ft tall, while a marijuana strain of Cannabis sativa will be smaller, bushier, full of flowering buds, and typically grows on 5-6ft tall. Marijuana has a high amount of THC and only a very low amount of CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, naturally has a very high amount of CBD, and only micro trace amounts of THC. Fortunately, the cannabinoid profile of hemp is ideal for people looking for benefits from cannabis without the “high”.
Hemp is used for making medicinal remedies, food, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, natural plastic, and so much more. Whereas marijuana is usually used just recreationally, spiritually, and medicinally. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MALE OR FEMALE VERSION OF THE HEMP PLANT.
*Note Hemp derived, CBD oil is sometimes referred to by people as cannabis oil, as the term cannabis can technically describe hemp or marijuana, and in our case cannabis oil is obviously being used to describe our hemp oils.
No. Unlike THC, CBD does not cause a high. CBD is an advantageous daily staple item since there are minimal side effects.
CBD is extracted and separated from specific varieties of cannabis, often known as hemp. Chemically, CBD is one of 100+ chemical substances known as cannabinoids, which are all found in the cannabis plant. CBD is the typically the most abundant compound in hemp, representing up to 40% of the plant.
Because our oils are extracted from hemp, you might hear this type of product referred to in a few ways: CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp-derived CBD oil, CBD-rich cannabis oil, or full spectrum hemp extracts. CBD oil is unique from typical hempseed oil sold cheaply in the grocery store because CBD hemp oil is an extraction of all aerial parts of the hemp plant, instead of only the seeds. This method of extraction produces a nutritionally robust oil.
More research is needed to figure out the total effects this compound has on our bodies. Studies have shown the existence of a system of cell receptors in your body, called the endocannabinoid system (ECs), which spreads throughout the connective tissues and even into your organs. The cannabis family of plants contains compounds which interact specifically with this system and provide nutritional and therapeutic value that is unavailable to most other plants.
The cannabis plant consists of a wide variety of chemicals and compounds. About 140 of these belong to a large class of aromatic organic hydrocarbons known as terpenes (pronounced tur-peens).
Terpenes, unlike cannabinoids, are responsible for the aroma of cannabis. The FDA and other agencies have generally recognized terpenes as “safe.” Terpenes act on receptors and neurotransmitters; they are prone to combine with or dissolve in lipids or fats; they act as serotonin uptake inhibitors (similar to antidepressants like Prozac); they enhance norepinephrine activity (similar to tricyclic antidepressants like Elavil); they increase dopamine activity; and they augment GABA (the “downer” neurotransmitter that counters glutamate, the “upper”). However, more specific research is needed for improved accuracy in describing and predicting how terpenes in cannabis can be used medicinally to help treat specific ailments/health conditions.
