Marijuana vs. Hemp

Hemp and Marijuana are both from the Cannabis family which is why confusing the 2 different plants can be so easy. They are kind of similar in looks, but very much different in their entirety.

Hemp- Is non-psychoactive and contains less than 1% THC values. Hemp derived CBD will not get you high, is legal in all 50 states and can be purchased over the counter without a prescription. Federal law requires Industrial Hemp to contain .3% or less THC for it to remain legal.

Marijuana- Is psychoactive and can contain 30% or more THC values. Marijuana derived CBD will get you high and is illegal in most states. There are many states getting on board with the legalization of Marijuana, There are states where you can get it medically with a prescription from a certified doctor.

Marijuana was created by selectively breeding Indian hemp for Tetrahyrdocannabinol (THC). THC is the major difference between hemp and marijuana.

CBD is non-toxic, no fatal overdose levels have ever been reported. Several studies have evaluated the safety of CBD in adults and concluded that it’s well tolerated across a wide range of doses – up to 1,500 mg/day – that’s a lot, way more than the average person would need!

 “The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 was signed into law. Among other things, this new law changes certain federal authorities relating to the production and marketing of hemp, defined as cannabis (Cannabis sativa L.), and derivatives of cannabis with extremely low (less than 0.3% on a dry weight basis) concentrations of the psychoactive compound delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). These changes include removing hemp from the Controlled Substances Act, which means that it will no longer be an illegal substance under federal law.”

CBD can treat a number of ailments in both humans and dogs. Recent research has shown that CBD can help dogs.

A study conducted in 2012 indicated that CBD, which is a natural anti-inflammatory, improved the skin of dogs with inflammatory skin conditions. A 2017 study looked at the effects of CBD oil on epileptic dogs. The study found that the dogs who had CBD oil had fewer seizures than those who had a placebo. It found that CBD was an effective way to treat seizure-prone dogs. A 2018 study on dogs with osteoarthritis found that CBD oil reduced pain and helped them be more active than usual. In addition to the above studies, a recent survey of US veterinarians showed that many vets felt that CBD was an effective treatment for managing pain, relieving anxiety, and decreasing the frequency and severity of seizures.

Full Spectrum vs. Broad Spectrum?

Full Spectrum CBD vs. Broad Spectrum CBD:

Full-spectrum CBD, on the other hand, contains everything the plant contains. Full-spectrum CBD is full of all the terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids, and fatty acids found in hemp, all of which have therapeutic value of their own and help create what’s know as the entourage effect.

Broad-spectrum CBD is a little bit of both. Broad-spectrum CBD is full-spectrum CBD without any THC. It offers all the entourage benefits associated with full-spectrum CBD, without any chances of THC being ingested into the body. Broad-spectrum CBD is an excellent choice for individuals that can’t have any traces of THC is their system, whether for legal purposes, passing a drug test, or anything else.

Which CBD product is right for me?

Consuming CBD oil sublingually is the most preferred method for our customers. There are many sublingual terps and CBD oils available online to choose from. This method takes a few minutes before visibly showing its effects, however, it works as a broad spectrum treatment making it better than inhaling CBD*. As far as the correct dosage of CBD, one must know that the correct dosage of CBD that it varies per person and not per condition.

Inhaling/vaping CBD is the second most popular method of consumption and it has been recommended by many in our community if you are looking for immediate results.

Although slower on impact, topical CBD application remains in effect for a longer period of time than the above mentioned methods. If you are looking for uniform and long lasting effects, topical creams can be convenient for you. Your skin absorbs the ingredients slowly but remain in the system for a longer time. It has been reported as a great choice amongst our community for skin issues and chronic pain.

What are the side effects associated with CBD?

There can be side effects, but they are neither common nor serious.

Drowsiness: Many people describe the effect of CBD as a ‘wave of relief’ or a ‘calming sensation.’ It’s worth noting that these feelings can manifest as drowsiness in high doses. 

Dry Mouth: Recently, scientists confirmed that there are in fact cannabinoid receptors in the salivary glands of humans. CBD interacts with these cannabinoid receptors and inhibits the secretion of saliva – which can cause ‘cotton mouth’.

Low Blood Pressure: Very high doses of CBD can induce a slight drop in blood pressure that is often associated with mild lightheadedness.

Lightheadedness: As described above, some consumers experience mild feelings of lightheadedness as a result of the slight drop in blood pressure.

Inhibition of Hepatic Drug Metabolism: This one sounds worse than it is. If you’ve ever heard a physician caution eating a grapefruit with certain medications, this is the same effect.

We’d also like to note that there are conflicting studies regarding CBD’s potential side effects when treating Parkinson’s disease. Several studies suggest that CBD is safe and well-tolerated by Parkinson’s patients. However, other studies concluded that high doses of CBD led to increased tremors and muscle movement in Parkinson’s patients. The moral of the story? Start slow with low dosages and increase to tolerance. You have a higher likelihood of finding relief than experiencing discomfort.
