What is hemp CBD oil?
Within the health-conscience community of hemp product users and producers, it’s almost hard to believe people don’t know what CBD is. For some, this has been a fundamental aspect of their health for decades. However, with the ever-increasing legalization of cannabis within forward-thinking states, and the subsequent publicity this versatile plant has received, millions of people are just now learning about and exploring the multitude of benefits of hemp and the compounds derived from hemp such as CBD.
There lies the first hint of an answer as to what CBD is, a chemical compound found in the hemp plant. Similar to oranges containing Vitamin C or coffee containing caffeine, hemp contains Cannabidiol or CBD for short. It’s just one of many compounds found in the hemp plant.
Is CBD oil safe?
Scientifically speaking, chemical compounds found in the hemp or cannabis plant are referred to as cannabinoid compounds or cannabinoids. Unlike some other cannabinoids in hemp, CBD does not have any intoxicating or psychoactive properties and it won’t show up on a drug screening as long as you use quality products in the way they were intended. This is one of the reasons why CBD derived from hemp is legal in all fifty states.
The more widely known psychoactive compound extracted from specially grown marijuana plants is THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol. That’s the compound that gives people a high.
So, CBD oil comes from hemp but THC comes from marijuana… isn’t that the same plant?
Now we’ve come to explaining a little more about the somewhat mysterious cannabis plant. Very simply put, hemp is a cannabis plant that is grown with little to no THC content for practical purposes. Hemp is used to make paper, clothing, rope, fuel and some food items and supplements like protein and CBD oil. Marijuana on the other hand is a cannabis plant with a high level of THC content grown specifically for its THC content whether it’s being used for medical or recreational purposes.
In a way the difference between hemp and marijuana is sort of like green apples versus red apples. They’re both considered applies, but one of them is not very sweet (hemp has little to no THC) while the other is very sweet (marijuana has lots of THC).
The CBD oil products sold on our website are made with CBD derived from the hemp plant, not marijuana.
Is CBD already considered an oil once extracted from hemp?
Yes. CBD is extracted in a liquid state as an oil. It can be further purified down to a concentrated powder such as in our Renew CBD Isolate, but the initial extraction is an oil. As an oil it is soluble in other oils, which is why with many products you find the CBD has been combined with MCT oil or other oils. This makes the CBD less potent and easier to use.
