Can you hear that? It might sound like silence right now, but the Large time clocks about to start ringing, it’s time!
Time to start a new revolution, one that will help you step up to the plate and hit a home run. What I mean is more than a speech, it’s an offering to a premium and superior health opportunity.
Alternative medicine is in your front view, And it will continue with no mercy until each and every individual finds relief for their medical, emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual problems. Two years ago, I would have asked myself the same question, what is CBD in hemp oil?
Generation X Is Just As Confused As Y and Z, But Why?
Simply, we are not educated on the large reputation that CBD and hemp oil have. We don’t learn about it in school, at a visit to our doctors office, our chemistry and biology teachers don’t spend time lecturing you on this topic just like you don’t expect your doctor to, and for why should they?
I can tell you exactly why, but that’s not what I’m here to spend time for. If you want to learn more of it’s use for pain, you can see it in our newly updated cbd to pain article here.
You either do or don’t know a thing about hemp or CBD, and if you do, have patience with me, but for those who don’t I’m about spend a little time getting you up to date in a matter of minutes…literally. Hang in?
Let’s start off with Hemp!
What is Hemp? A Remedy In Disguise
It’s 2018, and you’ve probably heard the spill, Hemp is marijuana! OH MY GOSH! That’s a sin! Re-adjust your seat-belt, and fasten up for a different revelation.
Hemp is WAY different than it’s parent partner marijuana, and there are 3 ways to define them:
But guess what? this doesn’t stop political leaders or our combined government from getting confused and putting a label on it as all cannabis species. It’s been almost 46 years, It’s time to get it together people! Excuse me, it’s not about them, or their incorrect accusations, it’s about you and every little benefit you can squeeze out from me.
Not going to deep into marijuana, its known as a medicinal and recreational use drug, while Hemp is used for for hundreds of other applications that marijuana can not be used for. There are so many I couldn’t list them all, but you can see in this article for more that list 1,000’s!.
I can’t keep you waiting any longer, you wan’t to likely know if Hemp can get you high right? This is how I answer many of my back pain patients, and bare with me: ” You are more likely to see zombies come to life before your brain attains a high from smoking it.
Here’s a better look at how they compare:
High THC 5%-35%
Low THC <0.3%
Grown in a controlled environment
Minimal care, can cultivate in any environment
Medical and for recreational use
Grown in The U.S
Can be applied on your body, clothes, foods, plastic, construction, etc.
So how can you spot the differences between the two that grow from the same plant? There are three basic fundamentals to identify them and they are:
- Appearance. Hemp looks completely different than marijuana, in that it has skinnier leaves, that are concentrated at the top, you don’t see too many branches below the main top part. And with marijuana, it’s either tied into a twisted knot, known as a bud, look like a nugget, or it’s shaped in the form of broad sticking out leaves. If you stand about 20ft back, and if you saw a field of them, you’d notice that the hemp is skinnier and taller, while the marijuana is smaller and bushier.
- Chemical makeups. We’re going molecular in her for a second, and it’ll be in terms we can all find easy. If you look at their chemical composition(compounds), you’ll notice a different look about the two, The THC in the marijuana is the compound you’ll see, and that is responsible for 5-20% of the THC content, and the premium vary as up to 25%-35%. And on the end, Hemp has as low as 0.3% THC levels, not enough to give you a psychoactive feel(similar to what you will find in CBD in just a moment).The awesome part about Hemp is that it has CBD in it, so both of their mixed compounds will interact with you to give you a very therapeutic feel.
- Cultivation. You can’t grow hemp and marijuana in the same environment, it just doesn’t work. You have variables like cold air, and cold temperature for one that would disrupt marijuana. You need to have it in a carefully controlled, humid, and warm temperature, while having to be about 6ft apart when growing. The opposite applies to hemp. Hemp can be grown outside in any climate, grown closely together in multi-acre plots.
OK, that’s what hemp is all about, now let’s dive into the meat, and learn about what CBD is in hemp oil.
What is CBD? Is It Just Another Drug?
To know what CBD in hemp oil is, we need to start broad, and that takes some fundamental definitions. IT BASICALLY IS A Cannabis compound that has a ton of medical benefits, without the addition of the psychoactive “high” feelings you would typically only see in marijuana. Which brings me to the most important characteristic…
Marijuana and Hemp, and CBD’s all might have THC, but Hemp and CBD both have less than 0.3% which ensures you will not have a high feeling, at all! I can tell you that’s a fact because I’ve tried it, and it works to perfection, but why not just see a short video on it?
Who Are CBD’s for?
There is no CBD without you. You and I bring it to life, because it serves all these health purposes:
- back pain
- joint pain
- muscle pain
…These are some of the very important ones, but there are so much more! Can you see now why you are the reason CBD has a place in natural medicine? It’s been helping out millions of people on a global scale for at least the last 8 years, so why is it now that you’re just learning about it?
Well for one, it could be that you hadn’t had to even think about it, not until you were hit with a chronic injury, a neurological disorder, or just pain that hurts you every time it comes and Goes. Which ever one it is, CBD’s will ensure you take away the whole pain completely! YES, completely!
Just the other day, I was speaking to an older gentlemen, about in his late 50’s who never heard about CBD until about a year ago. He had been using marijuana as far back as he could remember, when pot was the only thing that could help. After him and his wife had tried it, there was no convincing them to switch. If you’d like to learn more about cbd oil right away, and for back pain, you can see it in my article here.
CBD Vs Hemp, Is There Competition?
Now that you “get the picture” on what marijuana vs hemp is, and what a CBD is, it’s about that time to really answer what is CBD in hemp? Broader conversations between your friends, and family are always between CBD and marijuana, but no one ever talks about hemp. Why?
Our brains like to think a general overview, and anytime a the word CBD comes to mind, we can’t help but make a case for it’s brother marijuana. And that’s not your fault, we were trained to think on the defensive, that’s how our minds work to defend and secure ourselves. But let’s put that to the side and build a case for why we don’t hear about hemp enough in conversations.
Hemp oil is never tested for CBD’s, and but always contains a small trace of it since they both come from the Cannabis Sativa Plant. Have you heard about industrial hemp oil?
Industrial hemp oil also comes from the same cannabis sativa plant that hemp oil or hemp seed oil get extracted from. Industrial hemp is not cultivated to produce the buds you seen in marijuana, which reasonab;ly doesn’t give you a “high” feeling. And this hemp oil contains higher concentrations of cannabioioil(better known as CBD)
So here’s the million dollar question…is hemp oil the same as cbd oil?
Well, we know that both are made from the same plant, and hemp oil contains many antioxidant like omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Since the hemp oil is compressed from the seeds of the hemp plant, it does not contain the same amount of CBD’s like you would find for medical purposes extracted from the whole plant itself.
One thing you’ll notice if you haven’t already is that most CBD manufactures label their CBD as hemp oil, and the actual CBD contains hemp oil as its carrier base- which helps give it a more medicinal use. So that’s where the confusion lies.
Are you looking to use CBD’s in The Future?
It’s common to feel like there are so many medicines, and funky stuff out there to cause you to shy away. But It’s also important that you sit down with yourself and ask yourself the most potential life changing decision question:
If you’re in this exact moment of your life, I can tell you without a doubt, YES! The reason I say this is that you’re either ready to let go of your:
When I had chronic lower back pain that left me with nothing but to go back to opioids for the second time, I honestly had no choice but to look into CBD’s. I knew how CBD worked 3 years ago, but I didn’t know where to go to next. My close friend at the time had introduced me to CBD Oil, and that took off like a jet leaving the landing strip. You can learn more about CBD oil in my top 100 article right here.
CBD’s Are A Derivative of Hemp
It’s time to let you go, but before I do, I want to close up with a few things about today. We learned that marijuan and hemp are very different, and how cbd is an etract from the same plant as hemp, and that cbd’s come from the hemp itself.
CBD’s are a formidable option for anyone that’s suffering with chronic pain, neurological conditions, and everyone far and wide with medical boundaries. The one thing I learned from using CBD’s are that they never give me a “high” feeling, and that with the correct dosages, they work immeditely and effectively.
