The legalization of medical and recreational marijuana across the United States has led to a renaissance of hemp-based products, with infusions being found everywhere from teas and meal supplements to skin and body care. Although hemp is increasingly found in a variety of products, many are still confused about the origins of hemp, and how it differs from its cousin, the marijuana plant.
CBD vs Hemp Oil
CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, not to be confused with THC. With Full spectrum hemp oil (CBD) you get all the medicinal benefits without the “high”. There are 250 cannabinoids, cbd being only being one of them, but since it is the most known, we will most often use CBD when we are referring to our full spectrum hemp oil. Hemp oil that is produced from the seeds of the hemp plant, does not contain cannabinoids and are most often used for cooking or for it’s protein, while full spectrum hemp oil (CBD) is extracted from stalks, stems, and flowers. CBD has numerous medicinal benefits such as anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. These work their medicinal magic by imitating compounds our bodies naturally produce, called endocannabinoids. When we talk about the signifigance of cannabidiol (cbd) in our products and the role that cannabinoids play in maintaining and improving our health, we’re referring to their influence on the endocannabinoid system and improving it’s ability to maintain homeostasis, balancing our skin from the inside out.
