What is hemp flower extract?
Hemp flower extract is an oil derived from the flowers of the industrial hemp plant. The tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration is the distinguishing factor between industrial hemp and marijuana. Industrial hemp cannot have a THC concentration more than 0.3% on a dry weight basis.
It is popular as a wellness supplement that contains cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol (CBD), as well as polyphenols, essential amino acids, and minerals like magnesium, calcium and phosphorus.
What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found in the Cannabis Sativa L plant which act on the cannabinoid receptor network known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). There are at least 113 different phytocannabinoids that have been isolated from cannabis with the most well-known of these being the non-intoxicating cannabidiol (CBD), and the psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
What is the endocannabinoid system?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system of cannabinoid receptors that work within the body’s central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system to maintain homeostasis or balance. The ECS is receptive to both our own naturally-produced endocannabinoids as well as to the phytocannabinoids found in hemp.
What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is non-intoxicating and the most abundant cannabinoid found in industrial hemp. CBD is ideal for those interested in the benefits of cannabinoids without the “high” associated with certain levels of the THC cannabinoid.
What is CBDa?
Cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) is the nonpsychoactive acid precursor to cannabidiol. CBDa is one of an estimated 113 compounds known as cannabinoids. CBDa is found in the raw hemp plant, and once exposed to heat and/or light, will convert (decarboxylate) to CBD.
How do I use CBD?
Will I fail a drug test if I use CBD and CBDa?
Although our products comply with the federal and state mandated THC limit of less than 0.3%, we cannot guarantee the results of a drug test. If a failed drug test is a concern, we would recommend doing further research before making the decision to consume any CBD products.
