Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant that contains negligible amounts of THC, the psychoactive component found in marijuana. It has a variety of commercial and industrial uses, including clothing, footwear, construction materials, animal feed, biodegradable plastics and oils used for food or fuel. Additionally, hemp can also be used to create high-quality CBD oil from its flowers. Cannabis on the other hand is known for its psychoactive properties due to its concentrations of THC. Different varieties contain varying levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound most responsible for inducing mental effects in users. While originally utilized only recreationally or medicinally as needed, more recently cannabis has been employed therapeutically to treat a range of medical conditions such as pain relief and appetite stimulation in cancer patients. Each hemp-based product should be carefully evaluated based on origin, testing procedures and laws regulating its production process before using or consuming it.

Cannabinoid Extract from Hemp and Cannabis

Cannabinoids are naturally-occurring compounds found in the cannabis plant, responsible for its wide range of effects. These compounds have been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments, and modern scientific research has unveiled their potential therapeutic benefits. Cannabinoids interact with our bodies’ endocannabinoid system, which helps maintain homeostasis or balance in all major body systems. While there are over 100 known cannabinoids in existence, the most studied of them all is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main psychoactive component in cannabis that causes a “high”. Surprisingly, though not as well known as THC, cannabidiol (CBD) is actually the most abundant cannabinoid in the plant; it has various medical properties but does not produce any “high” effects at all! Many other cannabinoids can be extracted or converted from CBD from the Cannabis Hemp flower including:
