Q. Is pure hemp extract the same as “Medicinal Marijuana”?
A. No. Through the Industrial Hemp used to produce CBD Products is a special variety of Cannabis Sativa (a relative of Marijuana) it does not contain the psychoactive properties of THC as Marijuana does and as such is not limited to serving sizes of 10-30mg which makes Industrial Hemp a much more practical source of Cannabinoids.
Q. Is CBD cannabidiol Hemp Oil legal?
A. Yes. Unlike Medical Marijuana you do not require a special permit to buy CBD Pure Hemp Extract. It can be purchased online and shipped to your home anywhere in the USA and several approved countries around the world. The same is in Europe where it is legal for internal use, without claims. In Australia Hemp Oil is legal for external (cosmetic) use only.
Q. Will I get High?
A. No. CBD Products are made entirely and only from Industrial Hemp and does not contain the psychoactive properties of THC. Additionally, Cannabidiol actually has the property of being anti-psychoactive.
Q. What are Cannabinoids?
A. Scientists have identified close to 500 phytochemicals in Hemp plants. Many of them, hundreds in fact, are Terpenoids.
These are the compounds that give fruits, flowers and herbs many of their desirable aromas, flavours and other special properties. A special sub-class of Terpenoids are the Cannabinoids.
There are over 60 of them found in Hemp/Cannabis which is the only place they are found. This is one of the many reasons Hemp stands alone in the plant kingdom, it literally is a treasure chest of nutrition without equal.
WHAT IS CANNABINOID SYNERGY
The Cannabinoids each have their own individual properties which is creating plenty of excitement in the scientific community. Besides the Terpenoids and Cannabinoids there are many other vitamins, minerals, phytosterols, pigments, proteins, enzymes, essential sugars, polyphenol antioxidants, flavonoids and essential fatty acids.
The oil appears black but it is really a blend of intense colors. It is important to know that while isolated Cannabinoids have their own characteristic properties, the different compounds have synergistic effects when the whole symphony of phytonutrients are consumed together.
Synergy means that the combined effect is greater than the sum of the individual parts. Another way of thinking of this is 1+1. You know 1+1 = 2. When Hemp phytonutrients are consumed together, as they naturally occur in the plant, then it is as if 1+1 now equals 3, or 4 or more!
