I want to start out this article – Hemp Extract vs CBD by saying a few things. First, I am not a doctor, nor have I gone to school for natural health or medicine. Second, while I don’t claim to be an expert on the subject of CBD oil and the hemp plant, I have done a ton of research and read hundreds of studies and articles on the subject over the years. Finally, you should always consult your doctor before taking any kind of supplement or doing anything drastic – especially if you are currently being treated for a serious illness like cancer.
What is hemp extract?
Hemp extract is a product made from the hemp plant, which contains high levels of cannabidiol (CBD). This product is typically used as an alternative to marijuana, but it also contains other cannabinoids and terpenes. Although hemp extract is not psychoactive like marijuana, it has been found to have similar benefits in some cases.
The hemp plant contains over 100 different cannabinoids, each with its own unique properties. THC is the most famous cannabinoid because it’s responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis use. CBD is another major cannabinoid with therapeutic effects that are not associated with the “high” or “stoned” feeling often associated with marijuana usage.
How do I take hemp extract?
Hemp extract is a cannabidiol (CBD) product made from industrial hemp that contains only trace amounts of THC, the compound in marijuana that causes a high.
Hemp extract is available in many forms: tinctures, capsules, edibles and topical products. You can also find it in pre-filled vape pens and cartridges. For example, you can buy hemp extract at some local dispensaries in California and Nevada.
Hemp extract is a dietary supplement, so there are no dosage guidelines set by the FDA. However, most people take it in small doses — often one or two milliliters per day — to reduce anxiety or insomnia without experiencing psychoactive effects. Those who use hemp extract to treat other conditions may take larger doses or use it for longer periods of time.
What is CBD?
CBD is a compound found in the cannabis plant that is responsible for many of the therapeutic benefits of marijuana. THC, on the other hand, is another cannabinoid that is responsible for marijuana’s psychoactive effects.
CBD and THC are both found in cannabis, but CBD is extracted from hemp plants while THC is extracted from marijuana plants. Since CBD does not produce any psychoactive effects, it has become very popular among consumers interested in reducing inflammation without feeling “high.” However, there are some conflicting opinions about whether or not CBD can actually relieve pain and reduce inflammation.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of more than 80 active cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. It accounts for up to 40% of its resin content or extractions that are sold commercially as CBD oil products. CBD oil products are usually derived from industrial hemp; however, some manufacturers are now producing it by extracting it directly from marijuana plants as well.
Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD does not produce any psychoactive effects or feelings of euphoria when consumed; therefore it’s often used as an alternative medication for people who do not want to experience these side effects while they’re taking their daily dose of medicine.
How do I take CBD?
CBD is available in a variety of forms, including tinctures, capsules and topicals. For example, CBD oil is often formulated with coconut or hemp oil to reduce the strong taste of the concentrated CBD extract. This type of CBD is often used for anxiety, skin conditions, cancer and pain relief.
CBD tinctures are also very popular. Tinctures are liquid extracts made with alcohol (usually grain alcohol) that are then mixed with water or vegetables glycerine to give them their liquid form. If you prefer not to consume alcohol, there are plenty of other options available. You can also use the extracted CBD alone and add it directly to food or drink.
CBD capsules come in a variety of different sizes, such as 25mg or 100mg. Capsules are easy to store and convenient as they come in dosages that are already measured out for you. They are made from gelatin (a substance derived from animal by-products) that contains no THC at all, so they’re perfect for those who don’t want any psychoactive effects from their CBD supplement.
Should I take hemp extract or CBD?
The two main types of cannabis are indica and sativa. Indica is known for its sedative, relaxing effects, while sativa is more of an energetic and uplifting strain.
Hemp extract and CBD oil are derived from the stalks and seeds of the hemp plant, which contains very little THC (the compound that gets you high). The amount of cannabidiol in hemp extract varies depending on how it’s made; some companies will only use the top part of the plant (buds), while others may include stems and leaves too.
CBD oil can be taken orally or applied topically to treat skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and acne. It’s also used as a dietary supplement to help with everything from depression to epilepsy, although there are no scientific studies that prove these claims yet.
Most people take hemp extract drops or capsules orally because they’re easy to dose accurately. You can also find some tinctures that you can use under your tongue instead of swallowing them.
There are ways to get the benefits of both
Hemp and cannabis are two plants that are very similar. Both contain CBD, which is a naturally occurring compound in the plants.
However, hemp is different from marijuana in several ways. For example, hemp contains less than 0.3% THC content while marijuana contains more than 0.3% THC content. Hemp has been used for thousands of years to make textiles, rope, paper and other products.
CBD oil is made from industrial hemp oil extract and because it comes from an agricultural product it is legal in the United States without medical marijuana certification or a prescription from a doctor. CBD oils are made from hemp seeds that have been pressed to extract the oil from them, leaving behind an oil with concentrated CBD levels that can be consumed orally or added to food or drinks (like this recipe).
Hemp extracts are available as drops under the tongue, tinctures (liquid form), capsules (pill form), topicals (creams) or with edibles like gummies or candy bars! You can also find topical creams for sore muscles and joints, lotions for skin care concerns such as acne breakouts or eczema flare ups and more.
