Due to the rising awareness of CBD, from studies and stories in the news, there has been an increasingly amount of research and clinical studies about what CBD can do to benefit life and health.
Often a topic of hot debate, the truth is that CBD is still shadowed with confusion and negative misconceptions. The misconceptions and confusion surrounding CBD are mainly due to the fact that it can be harvested from either the hemp or cannabis plants.
Understanding the differences between Hemp and Cannabis.
To begin with, Hemp and Cannabis plants are physically different. Hemp grows tall and narrow and unlike Cannabis, isn’t grown for their buds. Hemp is harvested for a variety of purposes including the manufacture of materials. Whereas Cannabis, usually short and wide, is grown for the flowering buds that is commonly used for smoking or THC extraction.
The negative ideology that surrounds smoking Cannabis as a recreational drug is probably the leading factor for the misconceptions of CBD. Both Cannabis and Hemp contain CBD and THC, but here’s the skinny, hemp is natural very high in CBD and very low in THC, meaning you would have a very hard time getting high from Hemp. Cannabis is the exact opposite, high in THC and low in CBD. In fact, hemp contains only about 0.3% to 1.5% THC, while cannabis contains about 5% to 10% or more THC.
CBD Oil can have a positive influence for a healthy life.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of over 60 compounds found in these plants. CBD acts on the body’s endocannabinoid system, creating physical changes in the body, which can be beneficial in many ways. Just in the last two decades, it has become increasingly understood that using CBD oil can have a positive influence for a healthy life.
Tetrahydrocannabinoil, or THC, is the compound found in cannabis with psychotropic properties. Medical marijuana companies breed their plants to have the highest concentrations of THC. It is associated with the feeling of being high that marijuana smokers experience. Effects include feelings of euphoria, pain relief, however it has also been known to sometimes increase anxiety and paranoia.
Hemp CBD (non psychoactive) is associated with many of the opposing effects of THC. Hemp CBD (non psychoactive) has been considered to provide therapeutic value for medicinal treatment for anxiety & depression, epilepsy, arthritis, fibromyalgia, neurodegenerative disorders, arthritis, pain relief, cancer, insomnia, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, lupus, chrohn’s disease and much more. Research isn’t conclusive here, although it is strong, and in the coming years, we are expecting to see more and more evidence.
The main difference, when thinking of hemp CBD vs cannabis CBD, are the levels of CBD and THC they contain. Remember, hemp has naturally high levels of CBD and insignificant levels of THC, and the opposite is true for cannabis.
CBD has positive implications in a vast number of illnesses and has been shown to boost general health, hair and skin. CBD has also been shown to be safe to use by all, children, pregnant or nursing women, and those who cannot take pharmaceutical medicines who may want to use it as an alternative remedy.
It should also be mentioned that CBD is legal whereas THC is not. Medical marijuana must be prescribed by a doctors in states it is legal. CBD is much more accessible and can be bought from many outlets. Which brings us to Treasure Valley Extraction.
