CBD and Hemp Information

A Comprehensive Breakdown of CBD Oil and Hemp Flower

                         

 

There is a global surge in demand for cannabis products. According to a report by Gallup Poll, one out of every seven American adults uses CBD oil and hemp flowers, a whopping 14%. The largest consumers of the products range between 18 and 29 years. So, what has fueled the demand for CBD oil and hemp flowers? To understand this scenario, we need to define basic concepts.

 

 

What is CBD?

CBD is one of 120 compounds that is referred to as cannabinoids, CBD is a non-psychoactive chemical compound that is extracted from a cannabis plant. The Cannabis plant contains over 100 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids; CBD is one of them. The Hemp plant contains few cannabinoids, especially the psychoactive cannabinoid (THC), which is responsible for head-high effects.

 

The non-psycho active properties of CBD make it inhibit THC from binding with the CB1 receptors in the brain. The nervous system and brain, which host the CB1 receptors play a crucial role in controlling body functions such as emotions and movements. Since the THC is inhibited from binding with the CB1 cells, the person develops a calming effect.

 
 
What is CBD Oil?

 

You get CBD oil from extracting the oil from the flowers and leaves of a Cannabis plant, then mixing it with a carrier oil.  Here at CBD and Hemp Emporium, we use the highest quality 100% pure cold-pressed organic Hemp carrier oil with no additives.  Most  CBD oils you will find on the market are extracted from  Industrial Hemp because the CBD content is higher. 

The CBD oil comes in 3 different spectrums,  full-spectrum, broad-spectrum and isolate, this is determined by the chemical composition.

 

 
Full Spectrum

 

Full Spectrum CBD Oil contains terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids, and fatty acids, which makes it more effective.  Research shows that the compositions of these properties make the full spectrum give higher entourage effects than isolate CBD oil. Full Spectrum contains trace amounts of THC.  When shopping for CBD oil in the United States you will find the amount of THC is under 0.3% due to laws and regulations. The  THC content is so low, there is almost no possibility that you would feel any psychotropic effects that THC is famous for. We only sell Full Spectrum at CBD and Hemp Emporium due to research showing greater effects. Unlike Broad Spectrum Full spectrum CBD oil has not had any cannabinoids removed, including the low amounts of THC.  The reason for this is that it creates a larger entourage effect than the other 2 spectrums. All of the cannabinoids work in unison for the betterment of the whole, THC included. Shop for Full Spectrum CBD oil Here.

 

 
Isolate CBD

 

Isolate CBD oil contains fewer cannabinoids, fatty acids, and flavonoids than Full Spectrum and Broad Spectrum CBD.  Research carried out by an Israeli Firm show that Isolate CBD oil is less effective than the full spectrum because it lacks fatty acids, which gives the users healthy benefits. 

 
Broad Spectrum

 

Broad-spectrum contains terpenes, flavonoids, fatty acids, and other cannabinoids like full-spectrum, but does not contain THC. Broad-spectrum is a combination of full-spectrum and isolate CBD oil.

 

 
CBD Oil Benefits

 

 

Since the research on CBD oil is still at the infant stage, it is hard to verify most of the medical claims on the internet. Let us look at some of the scientifically proven benefits of CBD oil.

 

 
Nourishment of the Skin

 

Dry or oily skin is common due to medical or lifestyle conditions. Dry skin can be caused by low production of sebum, while oily skin is caused by overproduction of the same. Broad Spectrum and Full Spectrum CBD oil are rich in fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) and vitamins that keep the skin hydrated. Unlike the ordinary oils which close the skin pores, the CBD oil unclogs them due to the properties. T

CBD oil is used to treat acne, which occurs due to the accumulation of sebum in the skin pores. These properties are some of the factors making CBD oil very common in shampoos and lotions. Check out our CBD lotions and Salves Here.

 

 
Keeps Pets Calm

 

CBD oil also acts as an inhibitor to the CBRs in pets, which makes them calm down. The CBD acts on their nerves hence suppressing their aggressiveness. If you administer a few drops of CBD to an aggressive dog, it calms down and becomes friendly. CBD oil is, therefore, infused in pets food due to the non-psychoactive properties.

 

 
Induces Sound Sleep

 

Sleep is one of the activities c by the ECS. However, the ECS can be overwhelmed by other factors such as stress and chronic pain. Taking the CBD oil inhibits the CB1 from binding with the THC and therefore causes them to sleep soundly.

 
 
How Does Hemp Flower Work?

 

The Hemp Flower is extracted from the Hemp plant, the cannabis, which contains low amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Since the flower is plucked from the Cannabis family, it contains a similar smell to Marijuana. However, the flower contains negligible amounts of THC.

 

Since the hemp flower contains low THC levels, it does not give the user a head-high effect. The Hemp Flower can be dried then smoked or processed and infused into edibles or creams.

 

The ignorance about the Hemp Flower chemical components in the mid-20th century forced the federal government of the U.S. to ban the flower completely. It was not until 2018 during the Farm Bill that it was legalized. However, different states view has their own rules which de(criminalize) the use of hemp flowers.

     

 
Does Hemp Flower Cause Failure in Drug Tests?

 

For a person to test positive during drug tests, the THC levels must be more than 0.3%. Hemp Flower contains less than 0.3% of  THC. Therefore, it is hard for a person to fail a drug test due to the consumption of hemp flower. However, continuous smoking or oral use of the hemp flower leads to the accumulation of the THC levels in the body, which increases the chances of testing positive during the tests. It is therefore advisable to reduce the rate of Hemp Flower use, especially if you are about to undergo a drug test.

Other Uses of Hemp Flower

 

 
Baking

 

Hemp flower is now a common ingredient in kitchen cabinets. The flower is crushed then infused in butter to form a cannabutter that can be used in cooking.

 

 
Vaping

 

Instead of smoking the Hemp Flower, you can use it in vaping. The chemical components of the Hemp Flower are activated by the high temperature, causing them to give the user a calming effect.

Health experts recommend using a dry herb vaporizer since it reduces the risk of ingesting harmful carcinogens into the body. Besides, the vapor can be flavored to make it more appealing.  

 

 
Benefits of Hemp Flower

 

The internet is awash with "quick-fixes" that Hemp can offer to users. Since most of the claims are not scientifically proven, we settled for benefits that we can vouch for. They include the following:

 

 
Stress Reliever

 

Research shows that CBD is crucial in inducing sleep in patients. The CBD acts as an inhibitor to THC, which is responsible for causing a head high and restlessness. The CBD, therefore, keeps the endocannabinoid system (ECS) under control and, consequently, the stress levels. The hemp flower, therefore, slows down the stress levels in the body.

 

 
Lowers Blood Pressure

 

The CBD properties in the Hemp flower are crucial in reducing the blood pressure. When the person smokes or infuses the ground flower in edibles, the CBD reacts with the ECS to calm the neurological properties, including blood pressure. Low blood pressure protects a person from common health diseases such as heart failure.

 

 
Pain Reliever

 

Smoking hemp flower releases the CBD to the ECS and therefore inhibits the psychoactive properties in the CB1 receptors. When the CBD suppresses the impact of CB1 receptors, chronic pain is inhibited. The CBD is infused in edibles for faster absorption into the body.

Side Effects of Using CBD Oil and Hemp Flower

 

Although CBD is quite safe even in large doses it can bring on some side effects in some people.  Not everyone will have the same response to the same product.  Some of the side effects of CBD oil include:

 

 
Fatigue

 

Although CBD causes the brain and body to feel relaxed, it might cause the person to feel tired in large doses (although, a lot of people claim to have more energy after using CBD Oil products).   The CBD might interfere with the normal functioning of the ECS and, therefore, make the person feel tired after a short time.

 

 
Allergic Reactions

Although rare, some people experience different forms of allergy after taking CBD. The common allergic reactions include nausea, irritability, and vomiting.

 

 

 

 
Bottom line

 

 

Whether you use CBD Oil or Hemp Flower, you should use it responsibly and only if you're over 21.

 

The CBD industry is not highly regulated. This allows unscrupulous sellers to swindle gullible buyers by selling them adulterated products. Here at CBD and Hemp Emporium, we are honest and eager to please.  We offer a Full Refund if you are not pleased with our products. 

 

More research is underway to find out more benefits of using CBD Oil and Hemp Flower.

We are optimistic that the clinical reports will solve health issues and match up to the thousands of amazing claims by real users.
