Hemp extract refers to the extraction from hemp plant, containing a natural blend of phytocannabinoids.
The cannabinoids that the cannabis plant produces are very similar to endocannabinoids produced by the human body, and therefore could have huge potential in helping the body to find a balance. However to claim anything, there is a need for large randomized, double blind placebo trials over a very long period of time to be able to prove any positive effects.
Both CBD and THC are most important cannabinoids. THC is psychoactive, while CBD is non-psychoactive.
The difference depends on the amount of THC present. Marijuana has higher level of THC than Hemp. Genenally, the THC level of Hemp is lower than 0.3%, which can not make you “high”.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of the most important cannabinoids found in hemp. CBD is thought to have many therapeutic applications, from relieving pain to reducing epileptic seizure. Unfortunately we can not make any claims but we strongly encourage you to do your on research and find out for yourself all the goodness that CBD can bring in to your life.
Cannabidiol (CBD), is a compound found within cannabis. It has many health benefits but CBD doesn’t have the psychoactive properties of its more famous cousin THC, and should not be confused for THC. CBD is considered to have many therapeutic applications, from relieving pain to reducing epileptic seizure.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors. Known as "the body’s own cannabinoid system", the ECS is involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory, and in mediating the psychoactive effects of cannabis.
THC is probably the most widely known cannabinoid. Research and studies show results that THC helps with PTSD, cancer, chemotherapy, anxiety, Crohn’s disease and more. CBD, over the past few years has made its way to the forefront of the cannabis industry. When isolated, CBD on its own provides the user with similar effects to THC, but without the psychoactive feeling. CBN is said to be the most potent sedative of all the cannabinoids. CBC, in combination with THC, CBD and CBN, is the most abundant naturally occurring cannabinoid. Research shows that CBC provides the user with anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, fights against cancer, depression and more. CBG is short for cannabigerol. Research shows that CBG provides similar anti-inflammatory and antioxidant as CBD.
It depends on one’s endocannabinoid system. Everyone has an endocannabinoid system with receptors that use cannabinoids to signal areas of the body to provide relief. Our body receptors interact differently with each cannabinoid.
Cannabinoid is one of a class of diverse chemical compounds found in Cannabis. Tetrahydrocannabinol, THC, and cannabidiol, CBD, are two of the most important cannabinoids.
