Answers To The Confusion Behind CBD Hemp Oil

Denise Moore

While CBD hemp oil and marijuana technically come from the same plant, they are actually very different things. Most people don't understand the differences, assuming that hemp oil is just as bad, or addictive, as marijuana. But they couldn't be more wrong. Here are the major differences between the two.

  1. Addictive Factors: Both CBD hemp and marijuana come from the cannabis plant, but they are grown differently. The cannabis plant that marijuana is derived from is high in THC (the part that makes you high), and low in CBD (the medicinal part.) The cannabis plant that hemp oil comes from is the opposite, extremely low in THC and high in CBD. In fact, you couldn't get high off of hemp oil even if you wanted to; therefore there are no concerns of becoming addicted.
  1. Medicinal Factors: While marijuana has a few medicinal uses, most of the medicinal uses that come from the cannabis plant are found in hemp oil. While the US hasn't done any extensive research on its' uses, other countries have, and they have a lot to say. It has been prescribed for a wide variety of illnesses, providing energy, an increase in memory and focus, providing anti-inflammatory benefits, and the list could go on. For preventive care, lower doses are recommended, while higher doses are recommended for treating diseases.
  1. Production Factors: While marijuana plants are produced solely to make marijuana, hemp plants are produced for several different purposes. Aside from their medicinal uses, hemp is grown to produce food, automobile parts, clothing, paper, and thousands of other products. While it's not legal to grow in the US, many states are working to make it legal because of its wide variety of uses.

Many people believe that it won't be long before it's legal to grow the cannabis plant in the US, but there are also many others that are working against it, worried about the probability of people abusing the privilege and growing marijuana instead. But even though you can't grow hemp plants here, you can purchase the products that come from them. Most of their products are found in whole food stores, fresh markets, and supplement stores. They can be found in the form of creams, lotions, oils, capsules, and several other forms to fit every need you may have. Some people even use it in their shampoo or chew it in the form of a piece of gum. Talk to your doctor and decide what form is best for you before looking for CBD oil for sale.

About Me
Working Together: Holistic and Traditional Combinations That Work

I am one of those people who hates going to the doctor. In the past, I have relied on everything from cranberry juice to apple cider vinegar to fix my ails. As I get older though, I find that I need to rely more on traditional medicine than I did in the past. What I found out from my doctor is that I did not have to give up the holistic medicines I used. I could combine them. This blog is designed to help others focus on how to combing holistic treatments with traditional medicine in a safe and fun way.
