CBD Oil & The Science Behind It: What You Should Know PART 1

Published on 6/1/2019
For additional information  Click Here

Recreational and medical marijuana are legal in many states now, so it’s become a source of hot debate for people who are both for and against marijuana and those who are in the middle like myself, (that feel it should be allowed for meidicinal needs but not so much for just recreational use), those who want it outlawed entirely and those who believe it should be legal everywhere. With all of this going on you still may not be aware that marijuana’s cousin, hemp, is also getting a  lot of debate in recent yrs.

The  truth despite the fact that unlike many strains of marijuana,Industrial hemp contains only trace levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the chemical component that gives marijuana its euphoric qualities. Hemp is primarily known for its fibers, used to make rope, fabrics, auto parts, industrial materials, and a variety of other products. Hemp also known for its nutritious seeds, which have been shown to benefit heart healthskin diseases, and many more conditions.

In recent yrs, nonetheless, people are most excited about the properties of a chemical component with the hemp called CBD, short for cannabidiol

. This chemical component has been linked with reduction of pain and seizures, improved mood and sleep, protection of the nervous system, and a range of other health benefits.

Unlike marijuana, hemp is legal in all 50 states according to Fedeeal laws, especially since December 20, 2018, when the president signed the 2018 Farm Bill, which replaced the 2017 version that expired in September. It includes the Hemp Farming Act of 2018, which simply states or makes the use and sale of products made from hemp completely legal across the nation.  However remember it does not affect the legal status of marijuan, which is still regulated as a schedule 1 drug in most of US by Federal Law.

This is substantially positive for both hemp farmers and consumers interested in using CBD, (an industry that’s predicted to hit $22 billion by 2022). Though, the CBD market has all the makings of a mad house, with many businesses restless to get in on the action and make a tidy profit. Sadly many of these companies will and are only in it for the quick buck and the quality of their products are sub-par at best.  This is why knowing the science behind CBD and being well versed in what to look for when searching for a supplier of high quality product is of great importance.  You will notice  CBD-infused products with prices all over the map. And with no official system of checks and balances, it will be hard to tell how much CBD is actually present or what quality it is.

Top CBD questions, answered

Education is key for learning how to make informed choices which choosing and using CBD  and will help you gain the most benefit from this powerful medicinal plant extract. If you plan to try CBD’s for it’s many benefits — or even if you already have started — continue to read for informative answers to CBD-related questions in this article and don’t forget to read our other posts on this blog all pertaining to educating people on the benefits and proper uses for CBD.

Why and when did humans start using cannabis?

Cannabis sativa was one of the earliest plants cultivated by humankind. The very first use of cannabis was documented in China around 4000 BC. A very versatile plant, it was used for food, medicine, religious and spiritual rituals, industrial fiber, and, also, recreation.

From the earliest known use in China, cannabis spread to India, the Arabian Peninsula, and then on to Europe with the spice trade. European colonies, use of cannabis spread it to the Americas, Caribbean, and throughout the world. How it was used depended on the variety of cannabis, the parts of the plant, and cultivation practices.

The variety of cannabis we now know as industrial hemp was traditionally valued primarily for its fibers with high tensile strength, making it ideal for creating rope and textiles. Hemp seeds and sprouts were eaten as a good source of high-quality protein and beneficial omega 3 fatty acids.

 The variety of cannabis we commonly know as marijuana was specifically cultivated for the euphoric properties of THC, which is concentrated mostly in the flower buds of the plant. Cultivation of this variety over the years have selected for higher THC concentrations and sadly much lower concentrations of CBD and other useful cannabinoids present in the plants natural state. This is changing somewhat now though with the medicinal Marijuana market. Many varities have been bred to contain variable amounts of THC and CBD to best suit ones personal needs for specific illnesses and conditions that it is being  used to treat.

Only recently have the true unique medicinal properties of both hemp and marijuana been fully studied and understood through the finding of the human Cannabinoid System.

Industrial Hemp and Marijuana how are they different?

Cannabis sativa has several alter egos, but marijuana and hemp are the two best known. Though both plants look the same, their chemical composition is quite different.

The chemical difference has to do with the presence or absence of certain enzymes. Both marijuana and hemp contain a chemical substance called cannabigerol (CBGA), which is concentrated mostly in the flower buds of the plant. Marijuana contains an enzyme that converts CBGA into THC; hemp contains a different enzyme that converts CBGA into CBD (cannabidiol).

Marijuana contains both THC and CBD, (though at many varying amounts), industrial hemp contains almost primarily CBD while THC only in very trace amounts. Remember, though, that there are many varieties of marijuana and hemp plants, and their concentrations of THC and CBD vary. Varieties with high THC have most commonly been used for recreational use, though in the states where legal some higher THC strains are being used medicinally now; hemp plants with low THC and higher CBD concentrations are predominantly used for medicinal uses. Note only cannabis with less than 0.3% THC can be legally classified as hemp, even under the new Federal law legalizing hemp derived products. 

In conclusion for today’s post this is a brief list of a set of posts I will make concerning the differences as well as benefits of the use of CBD, extraction methods which are best and many more informative articles on the use of Industrial Hemp Derived CBD.

Note none of this is intended to be medical advice and before starting any supplemental therapies one should first consult their physician, especially if presently taking prescription medication for any ongoing conditions.
