Hemp, or industrial hemp is a variety of the Cannabis Sativa plant.
For centuries, Hemp was used around the world for making rope, ship sails, paper, clothing, shoes, skin care, food & drink which made it an important part of the farming economy.
The 2018 Farm Bill allows Hemp to be grown legally in all 50 states specifically for industrial use by specially certified farms. The Bill labelled any cannabis plant with less than <0.3% THC as Hemp and any cannabis plant over >0.3% as Marijuana.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural extract from Cannabis Sativa plant family which is derived from both Hemp or Marijuana.
HEMP plants are cannabis plants that contain less than 0.3% THC (trace amounts) and are non-psychoactive. You don't get high yet you receive the benefits of relaxation and increase mood.
MARIJUANA plants are also cannabis plants that contain higher concentrations of THC that produce a psychoactive effect (you get high) and is not yet legal in all states.
Full Spectrum VS Broad Spectrum CBD oil:
Full Spectrum - Which I like to call "whole Hemp plant" contains all of the natural phytochemicals found in Cannabis Sativa, including terpenes, essential oils and traces of THC (<0.3%) and will not cause you to feel psychoactive effects. When these cannabis components work together, they produce the entourage effect which intensify the benefits of hemp that contribute to health & wellness.
Broad Spectrum - Contains the same as Full Spectrum without traces of THC.
Isolate - Pure concentrated form of CBD which is achieved through a great deal of additional work during the extraction process. Doesn't contain other cannabinoids, terpenes or flavonoids & like Broad spectrum, will not produce a positive drug test. Isolates don't use the "whole Hemp plant" therefore will not produce the entourage effect.
CBD from Hemp was discovered in 1940.
Hemp was consumed as a healing plant as early as the 5th & 6th centuries.
Hemp provides a great source of protein, Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E & minerals.
George Washington had a hemp farm.
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS), named in the 1990's encompasses the brain, endocrine system (relating to glands) and immune system in the human body. The ECS performs multiple tasks but the goal is to always maintain a stable environment.
The Endocannabinoid System are made up of receptors, enzymes and endocannabinoids.
Endocannabinoids are produced naturally in our bodies and is our bodies master regulator.
Endocannabinoids are responsible for the function of organs and tissues of the body. These regulatory effects are primarily mediated by 2 receptors, CB1 and CB2.
CB1 receptors are primarily in the central nervous system (brain) that are responsible for mood, appetite, metabolism, sleep, movement and other functions. CB2 receptors are expressed mainly in the immune system that help moderate pain & inflammation.
Cannabidiol or CBD indirectly acts upon CB1 and CB2 receptors throughout the body to produce a variety of potentially positive outcomes. Some researches have concluded that stimulating the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) by introducing CBD, can play a very important role in maintaining homeostasis-a healthy internal body balance.
CBD derived from Hemp can offer an alternative path to stress relief and relaxation following release from anxiety or distress.
CBD is widely used to ease tension and enhances comfort in social situations
CBD has a positive effect on your serotonin receptors . Low serotonin levels are known to cause depression. Using CBD enhances your body's natural process. Which can increase your mood and enjoyment.
