All About Hemp
Industrial Hemp IS NOT Marijuana! Hemp belongs to the Cannabis sativa family and is closely related to marijuana, but unlike marijuana, it contains low levels of the psychoactive compound THC.
Hemp is a versatile plant with a wide range of uses, from textiles and building materials to food and medicine. Hemp has been used for thousands of years, and its fibers were used to make paper, rope, and clothing in ancient civilizations. Today, hemp is grown for its seeds and oil, which are rich in protein, fiber, and essential fatty acids.
Hemp-derived CBD is non-intoxicating and is commonly used to alleviate pain, reduce anxiety and depression, and improve sleep. CBG, the mother of all cannabinoids, is also non-intoxicating and has positive anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and neuroprotective effects. It is also thought to stimulate appetite and have antibacterial properties.
Both CBD and CBG work by interacting with the body's endocannabinoid system, which regulates various functions such as pain, mood, and appetite. Many people have reported positive results from using these compounds for a variety of health issues.
THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is a psychoactive compound found in both hemp and marijuana. However, in hemp-derived products, THC levels are required to be below 0.3% by law.
When included in hemp-derived consumer products, THC can enhance the therapeutic effects of other cannabinoids, such as CBD and CBG. This is known as the entourage effect.
Hemp-derived products are considered safe when used in conformity with the manufacturer's recommended serving size. Prior to using hemp-derived products, it is recommended that individuals taking medications consult with their physicians first.
