The simplest way to define the difference between cannabis and hemp is that hemp is used to denote the non-psychoactive variety of the Cannabis Sativa plant. While cannabis or marijuana is used to denote the psychoactive variety of the same.

Is CBD Oil Safe?

Is CBD oil safe? It isn’t addictive or habit-forming like recreational marijuana. It also doesn’t get you high in the same way that other cannabis products do. It, therefore, doesn’t pose a risk like a drug might. However, the long term effects of CBD oil on the body haven’t been fully explored by scientists yet.

How CBD and THC Work Together

The exact ways that CBD and THC interact are unclear. Until recently, cannabis and cannabis products aside from hemp were illegal throughout almost all first world countries. It’s only in the past few years that medicinal and recreational cannabis have been legalised in certain places.

What Is the Correct Dose of CBD?

If you are just starting taking CBD, we recommended that you start with a low dose of around 10-15mg, taken in two doses, evenly spaced throughout the day.  Once you get more familiar with CBD (and the effect that it has on your wellbeing) you can increase the dose slowly, perhaps every 5-7 days, until you reach a point where you feel that you are getting the full benefit of the product.

Why Is CBD Oil So Popular All of a Sudden?

The market for supplements has always been big. Cod liver oil, multivitamins, and more recent trends like turmeric tablets have all been very popular. CBD oil is just one of many supplements that have seemed to explode in popularity suddenly. What you may have missed is that CBD was popular with a smaller audience before it gained a national platform.

What are terpenes?

Terpenes are a large class of organic compounds that are produced by plants (not just hemp!). They are incredibly fragrant and are what gives Cannabis it’s aromatic diversity. There are over 30,000 terpenes currently recorded[iii], therefore if you can find any plant that smells pleasant or a herb that tastes spicy, terpenes are likely responsible for these characteristics.

Why CBD Under Tongue?

Why should you take CBD oil under the tongue? The mucous membrane and gums absorb the active compounds in the oil quickly, because the layer of tissue is thin. It enters the bloodstream directly through capillaries visible under the thin membrane. CBD absorption under the tongue also prevents the oil breaking down in stomach acid.

What is CBD Oil?

CBD is a contraction of the word cannabidiol, which is a chemical compound found in all plants in the cannabis family. However, the CBD oil you can buy online or in-store is always made from industrial hemp—not ‘marijuana’. It can therefore scientifically be called hemp oil.

CBD Extraction Methods: Which is Best?

How is CBD extracted? The hemp is put through a high-pressure extraction process using industrial machinery. It is dissolved in a solvent. There are several different solvents used, the most common being carbon dioxide and ethanol (pure alcohol). Both kinds of solvent have their advantages, although ethanol is more widely used.

Full Spectrum CBD Oil vs. Refined Broad Spectrum CBD – What’s the difference?

Hempura’s refined extracts are manufactured from the same base extract as our Full-Spectrum Original, except the extract has been winterised and further purified after initial extraction. These filtration and refinement techniques allow unnecessary compounds to be removed (like the original hemp constituents), leaving a highly activated golden oil containing a refined cannabinoid and terpene extract.

How is CBD Made?

The issue is that CBD is a chemical. To make CBD oil, you have to strip away everything you don’t need from the hemp. This means the fibre, plant cells and other unnecessary chemicals. Even in the oils where these things are left in (full spectrum CBD oils), you still need to process the hemp until you’re mostly left with just the CBD.

How To Take CBD Oil

Like any supplement, it’s a good idea to take CBD oil either once or twice a day. Once a day, preferably in the morning, is a basic dose. There’s nothing wrong with just once a day, but in taking two doses (once in the morning and once in the evening) you ensure that you maintain roughly the same level of CBD in your body throughout each 24 hour period.
