Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally taking place constituent of commercial hemp/cannabis. Its formula is C21H30O2 and it has a molecular mass of 314.4636. It is the most abundant nonpsychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana and is being scientifically investigated for numerous reasons.
CBD oil is a marijuana oil (whether derived from cannabis or industrial hemp, as the word marijuana is the Latin genus name for both) that has significant amounts of cannabidiol (CBD) included within it. Our CBD items and extracts are stemmed from commercial hemp, so they could be considered CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp obtained CBD oil, CBD rich cannabis oil, or plainly hemp extracts because they generally contain much more than just CBD.
What’s the difference between CBD hemp oil and the hemp products I buy at the grocery store?
Hemp products sold in stores are most often made with hemp seed oil, which can contain only trace amounts of CBD. While it has been noted that hemp seed oil can be a great source of nutrition, its marginal quantity of CBD per weight makes it unfeasible as a CBD supplement.
Why should I use CBD from natural sources?
Unlike synthetically created or chemically derived CBD, which removes the cannabinoid from the rest of the plant’s extract, our CBD hemp oil is extracted from the plant in a process that also pulls all of the plant’s fatty acids, waxes, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, and terpenes and flavonoids, along with the various cannabinoids present, for a more complete dietary supplement.
I heard the FDA was shutting down CBD companies. Is this true?
The FDA has warned companies marketing CBD products not to make any claims about the use of CBD to treat or prevent disease. This is due to the fact that the FDA has not approved CBD or any other cannabinoid for any medical indications and does not currently regard it as having medicinal benefits.
We were not among the companies warned by the FDA, and as an industry leader, we make it a point to remain conservatively compliant with all FDA guidelines. We never make claims about the benefits of our products and, instead, encourage you to do your own research and discuss your concerns with your doctor before starting any new dietary supplement
Are hemp-derived cannabinoids such as CBD as great as CBD from cannabis?
The short response is yes. CBD is CBD, whether from marijuana or hemp. The majority of marijuana has an extremely low non-psychoactive cannabinoid profile (like CBD, CBC, CBG), so the majority of the time hemp would be far more preferable for anything besides THC. Cannabis is usually extremely high in THC (provides individuals the high) but typically very low in other non-psychoactive cannabinoids.
Nowadays in the USA, lots of farmers are growing industrial hemp flowers that are just as beautiful, odor-producing, and terpene rich as the very best marijuana pressures, such as our partnered farmers in Kentucky.
