What’s the “Buzz on CBD hemp oil products?
These little bottles of oil tinctures are everywhere and have caused quite a stir in the news, social media and even with senate bills being passed. Everyone seems to be talking about it! So, what’s the big deal? Here’s what you need to know. First, it’s a powerful antioxidant. In fact, hemp oil contains more antioxidants than most whole fruits and vegetables, as well as several key minerals and vitamins like D & C along with fatty acids (Omega 3-6). Second, hemp is amazing in regards to sustainability because of the short time it takes to grow. Where a tree can take many years to mature, hemp only takes 4 months from plant to harvest.
Quite recently, people have begun to rediscover all of the phenomenal benefits of this amazing plant. These plants are loaded with tons of Phyto-Cannabinoids (which interact with receptors in our body to produce restorative effects), powerful antioxidants known as Bioflavonoids (to help protect your cells and promote healthy circulation as well as immune, cognitive and joint health) along with Terpines (the organic compounds that give plants their scent and flavors – simply put, it’s what gives oranges their citrusy fragrance). Phyto-Cannabinoids, Bioflavonoids and Terpines are found naturally in hemp plants. When combining these compounds they create a synergistic effect for therapeutic results.
Hemp is part of the cannabis family. Now, there are 2 strains that make up this family, marijuana and hemp. So, while they may have many similarities, they also have some distinctive differences that are important to know. Both are high in cannabinoids and these little molecules bind to receptors in our bodies. However, their phyto-cannabinoid compound levels are not the same. Marijuana is higher in THC (5%-35%), which is responsible for the high feeling you get. Hemp is high in CBD and is quite low in THC (under 0.3%), which means you won’t get the same psychoactive effects as you would with marijuana. This makes hemp ideal for getting the vital cannabinoids our bodies need without the psycotropic effects.
