Through binding to certain receptors, all cannabinoids, including CBD, cause effects in the body. The human body produces certain cannabinoids on its own. It also has two cannabinoid receptors, called CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are found throughout the body, but there are many in the brain. CB1 receptors in the brain deal with balance and movement, pain, feelings, and mood, thought, appetite, and memory, and other functions. THC attaches to these receptors.
CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system. They affect inflammation and pain.
Researchers once believed that CBD attached to these CB2 receptors, but it now appears that CBD does not attach directly to either receptor.
Instead, it seems to direct the body to use more of its own cannabinoids.
Cannabis is a genus of flowering plants in the Cannabaceae family, which consists of three primary species: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis.
Industrial hemp is always a strain of cannabis sativa, while marijuana may be cannabis sativa, cannabis indica, or cannabis ruderalis. The main difference between CBD oil and hemp oil is how industrial hemp was produced compared to a marijuana form of cannabis sativa.
Industrial hemp is usually very fibrous, with long thick stalks, and has hardly any flowering buds, while a cannabis strain of Cannabis sativa will be smaller, bushier, and full of flowering buds. However, new industrial hemp varieties are being developed in the United States to have more flowers and higher cannabinoid and terpenic yields, such as our Maine hemp we are using now!
Fortunately, hemp cannabinoid profile is ideal for people seeking cannabis benefits without the’ high.’ Hemp is used to make herbal supplements, food, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, natural plastic, and so much more, while marijuana is usually used only for recreational, spiritual, and medicinal purposes. Because marijuana and hemp are two different forms of cannabis, either marijuana or hemp-derived oil may be protected by the name cannabis oil.
The short answer is yes. CBD is CBD, be it cannabis or hemp. Marijuana contains a significant amount of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. In other non-psychoactive cannabinoids, such as CBD and CBG, cannabis is usually very low, making hemp the main source of CBD oils and extracts.
We use CBD oil derived from hemp, a legal crop low in THC, for our goods. The USDA describes industrial hemp as any Cannabis sativa L component or derivative. With a dry weight level of no more than 0.3 percent THC. This definition applies to both Cannabis sativa L seeds, fibers, and other derivatives.
Terpenes are developed differently by various strains of cannabis plants. Hemp plants usually contain fewer resin than plants with cannabis. However, the quantity of resin found in hemp plants does not affect the quality of CBD we get from them. Hemp plants are actually a much better CBD source than marijuana plants.
The drugs for CBD are extracted from authorized plants for cannabis. These are nutritional supplements intended to be taken orally and carefully introduced into the diet. They are not sold for medical purposes like disease or ailment prevention or treatment. Most clients who use CBD oils like to drop the oil into their mouths directly. However, because our hemp extract comes from a plant as a natural supplement, it has a taste that some find to be bitter and solid. While many of our clients like the taste, some would prefer to find a way of masking it.
The recommended serving size is 15 drops. You can take up one to five servings a day –many of our customers like to take it once in the morning and once in the evening. We recommend testing the servings to see what works best for you. Consistency is key, so regardless of the serving size, we recommend taking it at about the same time every single day.
If you follow our recommended serving sizes, the 1 oz CBD oil bottles will last for about a month while the 2 oz bottles for two months.
CBD oil contains a variety of endocannabinoid-interacting cannabinoids. These cannabinoids, mainly in the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system, bind to different receptors throughout the brain and body. It controls the cycle of endocannabinoids and encourages homeostasis and health in general.
Before using any dietary supplements, including hemp extracts, please consult your doctor.
Together with general health and wellness, Hemp CBD oil communicates directly with the endocannabinoid system of the body to facilitate homeostasis. We can not make health statements in relation to our dietary supplement products in compliance with federal regulations. Only our products can be recommended for general wellness.
No, it is not. Generic hemp seed oil, which can be found in a grocery store very cheaply, is a material that is very different from our full spectrum hemp extracts (not plant). Standard hemp seed oil is produced by pressing the seeds cold, while our hemp extract is a complete plant extraction with many components not typically found in the seeds. Hemp seed oil is considered a very nutritious source of food, but it has no natural terpenes, cannabinoids and other components that our extracts have.
