Understanding the Basics
What is CBD?
CBD or also known as Cannabidiol is a chemical compound found in a hemp plant that has therapeutic benefits to the human body. The flowers, stalks, and leaves are extracted to produce a wonder oil called CBD oil.
The hemp plant has high levels of CBD and less THC, meaning it is non-psychoactive or it cannot make you feel "high". That differentiates a hemp plant from a marijuana plant, though they are under one plant species.
What is a Cannabinoid?
Cannabinoids are the natural chemical compounds found in industrial hemp plants. These chemical compounds that compose the hemp plant can help us deal with pain, inflammation, seizure, nausea, anxiety, etc. They interact with our Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to maintain important bodily functions like how we feel, move, or react.
There are 113 Cannabinoids in a hemp plant. The most common Cannabinoids are CBD and THC. We are focusing more on CBD because of its powerful healing properties, while THC is the compound that can make you feel “high”. A hemp plant only contains .3% or less THC and more CBD. Other cannabinoids found in a hemp plant that have health benefits are terpenes, cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), and cannabichromene (CBC).
What is Full spectrum CBD Oil?
A full spectrum CBD oil is a powerful combination of therapeutic compounds found in a hemp plant. CBD or Cannabinoid is just one of the 100+ compounds found in a hemp plant. Unlike CBD isolate products, full spectrum CBD oil is a blend of powerful cannabinoids, like cannabinoids, omega oils, and essential fatty acids, lipids, and terpenes. Together, these oils work hand in hand to deliver a much favorable result, depending on your wellness goals and what you want to achieve.
What is THC?
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is one of the 113 compounds found in hemp and marijuana plants. The THC level in a marijuana plant is higher (20% or more) compared to a hemp plant which is only .3% or less. This differentiates hemp from a marijuana plant.
THC is the compound responsible for hallucinogenic sensation smokers use. This compound is called THC, it is psychoactive, meaning it will make you feel “high”. THC oils are primarily used for pleasure and medicinal purposes, however, they are still illegal in some states and is still considered illegal federally.
Understanding the Different Processes of Extracting CBD Oil
