What is hemp oil?

Hemp oil is a beneficial edible oil made from hemp seeds, whereas CBD comes from the plant itself. The hemp plant is a kind of cannabis Sativa that is usually grown for industrial purposes. These plants contain low levels of THC and CBD. The oil is harvested from the hemp plant by pressing the seeds they produce.

Hemp oil does not contain any THC; however, there might be some traces in the seeds. Hemp Oil is relative to several other carrier oils, including sunflower and jojoba seed oil.

What to look for in a CBD product before purchasing?

First, see if it is a clean or certified product. Was it made in the USA, and whether it is Non-GMO? You also need to check if it has been tested by a third-party lab and what is the concentration of CBD in the product. Also, consider checking if it was formulated in a GMP certified and FDA registered facility, and what ingredients are blended with it? All these questions are essential in getting the product that is beneficial for a human body.

Secondly, you should also refer to the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) to ensure that you are paying for what you need. Check the Batch number, Expiration Date, THC, and CBD concentration and ensure that it doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals or toxins.

How to consume CBD?

There are multiple ways of benefiting from CBD. The effect can take place immediately or after a few minutes. For a prolonged benefit, you can consider taking higher levels of MG. Below is a quick summary of how you can consume CBD.

Oral – Capsules and Gummies

Using oral capsules is an effective way to get CBD absorbed into the bloodstream and benefit from it over extended periods. Since the orally consumed CBD is processed in the liver, it is converted into different metabolites. This process allows CBD to quickly get absorbed into the body and provide remedial effects and feelings of calmness.

Sublingual

The sublingual are liquid products derived from CBD and goes under the tongue. The absorption here happens through the mucosal membranes present in the mouth, bypassing the whole digestion process. It allows CBD to enter directly into the bloodstream. Most of the CBD tinctures should be taken in this way and held under the tongue for up to 50-80 seconds.

Topical

Like various Cannabinoids, the CBD molecule can’t pass through some layers of the skin, preventing it from delivering maximum results to the body. However, researchers have experienced multiple benefits during studies that involved using CBD via topical measures.  Again, each consumer should evaluate their individual needs and use our products responsibly.

What is an Endocannabinoid System?

The endocannabinoid system is the largest neurotransmitter in the human body and regulates bodily functions and maintains homeostasis. The system is involved in multiple physiological processes, including the feeling of relaxation, sleeping patterns, mood, pain sensation, metabolism, appetite, bone development, and immune function.

The Endocannabinoid System is also widespread throughout the animal kingdom, and all of the vertebrate species possess one. The three elements of the endocannabinoid system are endocannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors, and metabolic enzymes.

What are Endocannabinoids?

They are endogenous cannabinoids that bind and activate cannabinoid receptors, similar to the way plant cannabinoids do. These cannabinoids are a natural production by cells in the human body and help regulate many physical and psychological functions. The primary endocannabinoids in the body are 2-AG and anandamide and are composed of fat-like molecules inside cell membranes.

What are Terpenes?

The Terpenes, are oxygenated derivatives of Terpenoids. They are an organic chemical produced by plants and animals. There are over 20,000 Terpenes in existence today and contain diverse compounds of vitamins, pheromones, and hormones. The terpenes are used in the manufacturing of food flavorings, cosmetic products, incense, household cleaners, and perfumes. They are chemicals defining how things smell and also play a significant role in healing several remedies.

In the cannabis plant, the Terpenes are produced in the trichomes of the plant. Trichomes are the sticky, shiny, mushroom-like crystals usually covering the leaves and buds. Trichomes present in cannabis act as a defense mechanism, protecting the plant from animals and insects by producing fragrant terpenes that keep away the dangers associated with them.

The aromatic molecules of these cannabis plant secreted within the tiny resin glands of flowers can enhance or downplay the effects of the cannabinoids. Some strains produce a smell like lavender, while others can be sweet or more earthy and pungent. Each terpene is connected with unique effects, while some promoting relaxation and stress-relief, while others help in achieving feelings of inspiration, euphoria, and energy.
