What is CBD?
CBD COMES FROM HEMP (CANNABIS SATIVA) AND HAS BEEN REPORTED TO CONTAIN ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANALGESIC, ANTIOXIDANT AND REGENERATIVE PROPERTIES. CANNABIDIOL IS EXTRACTED FROM THE FLOWERS AND BUDS OF HEMP PLANTS. IT DOES NOT PRODUCE ITS COUSIN MARIJUANA'S "HIGH" WHICH CAN BE TRACED TO THE CHEMICAL TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL (THC). CANNABIDIOL (CBD) IS THE MOST WELL-KNOWN OF THE 113 CURRENTLY IDENTIFIED CANNABINOIDS FOUND IN THE CANNABIS PLANT WHICH IHEMP IS DISTINGUISHED AS TESTING BELOW .3% THC.NTERACTS WITH THE RECENTLY-DISCOVERED HUMAN ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM DISCOVERED IN THE 1990’S.
How does CBD work?
All cannabinoids act as ligands, meaning they bind with a protein and have the ability to affect that receptor’s behavior. There are two known primary receptors for cannabinoids: CBD1 and CBD2. CBD1 receptors are most likely linked with movement, coordination, pain, emotion, memory, and cognition, while CBD2 receptors are more closely linked to the immune system and reductions in inflammation and pain.
What are the benefits of CBD?
THERE’S STILL A LOT TO LEARN, BUT THERE’S AN INDICATION OF A LOT OF POTENTIAL. SCIENTISTS HAVE DISCOVERED THAT OUR SKIN ALSO HAS CANNABINOID RECEPTORS WHICH CONNECT TO OUR ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM MAKING TOPICALS LIKE HATSHE A VIABLE WAY TO APPLY THE HEALING PROPERTIES OF CBD. AS WE CONTINUE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS NEWLY DISCOVERED SYSTEM, SOME RESEARCH HAS SHOWN THAT THE PRIMARY ROLE OF THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM IS TO REGULATE YOUR NERVOUS AND IMMUNE SYSTEMS AND FIGHT THE FREE-RADICALS THAT CAN CAUSE ILLNESS. THIS MAY EXPLAIN ANECDOTAL FINDINGS LINKING CBD USE TO IMPROVEMENTS IN BOTH ACUTE AND CHRONIC PAIN, STRESS AND ANXIETY. A 2013 STUDY PUBLISHED IN THE BRITISH JOURNAL OF CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY FINDS CBD IN SOME EXPERIMENTAL MODELS TO HAVE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTI-CONVULSANT, ANTIOXIDANT, AND ANTI-PSYCHOTIC PROPERTIES.
Is CBD legal?
THE AGRICULTURAL ACT OF 2014 (FARM BILL) MADE CBD OIL DERIVED FROM FEDERALLY APPROVED INDUSTRIAL HEMP LEGAL. IN 2018 ADDITIONAL LEGISLATION PASSED MAKING HEMP PRODUCTS FEDERALLY LEGAL TO MAKE, SELL AND DISTRIBUTE. HEMP IS DISTINGUISHED AS TESTING BELOW .3% THC.
Does it make me feel intoxicated?
No. (That comes from the THC found in marijuana.) Additionally, when CBD is used topically, as intended in all of our products, it never reaches the bloodstream. All cannabinoids have similar structures, but they can affect the endocannabinoid receptors very differently. For example, THC interacts with the CBD1 and CBD2 receptors causing the feeling of euphoria or “high” associated with marijuana, yet CBD has very little effect in that way on these same receptors and may even block THC’s ability to bind and limit the effects when both compounds are present. That could be why CBD is able to deliver the healing properties of Cannabis Sativa without the intoxication. All Hatshe products are tested for both CBD and THC levels to ensure the product is as promised. Test results are available ON OUR WEBSITE AND BY request.
What’s the difference between hemp and cannabis?
The classification of both plants are the same, Cannabis Sativa, but what we refer to as hemp are Cannabis Sativa strains that contain 0.3% or less THC. Strains containing over 0.3% THC are regulated at the State level through the recreational and medical cannabis systems.
What’s the difference between hemp oil and CBD full-spectrum oil?
Hemp oil comes from the seeds of the Cannabis Sativa plant - much like sunflower, linseed or flax oil is created. It’s a good replacement for olive oil, but doesn’t have the quantity of available CBD compounds found in the flower which is used to make CBD distillates and full-spectrum oils.
What is the difference between distillate and full-spectrum oil?
Commonly, there are two ways to extract CBD. One way to process Cannabis Sativa is into a full-spectrum oil. Essentially, full spectrum oil is made from the whole plant and maintains the “entourage effect” of the various cannabinoids working together. it’s the least processed version of CBD on the market. Alternately, Full spectrum oil can then be further refined into a distillate by continuing to isolate the known cannabinoids, but removing other compounds originally present. We use full-spectrum hemp oil in all our blends to keep the chemical make up of our product as close to the way the plant is found in nature as possible.
