Hemp is grown across the world for countless industrial and commercial applications. Concentrations of CBD and THC is the major differentiating factor between Hemp and Marijuana. Hemp plants usually have higher concentrations of CBD and lower concentrations of THC( less than 0.3%) whereas Marijuana plants have a higher concentration of THC (greater than 0.3%).
Since the majority of the Cannabinoids present in Hemp are non-Psychoactive it is legal in many countries and is widely used in wellness supplements.
The most prominent thing about Hemp is that the whole plant from stalk to seed can be used without any considerable waste.
Hemp is majorly grown for its fibre, seeds and oil.
The Special Properties of Hemp Oil:
Hemp oil’s unique combination of hundreds of phytochemicals acts on every cell in the body and brain, providing numerous benefits for your mental, emotional, and physical well-being. We’ll go over each of these important chemical properties of Hemp oil and describe how it works.
So what does Hemp oil consist of ?
Below are the compounds which make it so special.
Cannabinoids are groups of chemical compounds produced by the
Cannabis sativa plant; each cannabinoid activates our body’s endocannabinoid system differently to produce different health and beauty benefits. These chemical compounds are classified into THC, CBC, CBG, CBN, CBDL, CBE, CBT & CBL. These compounds are touted for their many therapeutic effects, helps in regulating chronic pains, heart disease, and neurological disorders in the human body.
Terpenes are aromatic compounds in hemp oil that give it fragrance and flavour. Each strain of hemp has a different combination of terpenes, creating unique flavours and experiences—as well as additional health benefits. However, every plant has some portion of terpenes. But in hemp plants, it is observed that they have 200 different terpenes, which is a higher concentration when compared to others. Many terpenes are bioactive and could affect the body when injected, and they bind the brain receptors when we consume them. These are most widely used in essential oils and aromatherapy, impacting mood, stress levels, and other health indicators. The most common terpenes found in Hemp oil are BCP, Linalool, Limonene, Myrcene, Pinene, Humulene.
Flavonoids are bioactive compounds that are present in cannabis plants. These compounds are termed cannaflavins. Two major flavonoids, cannaflavin A & cannaflavin B, are 30 times more potent than aspirin! They are present in hemp plants. Hemp plants contain several flavonoids that are found nowhere else in nature. The most abundant flavonoids found in Hemp oil are Orientin, Quercetin, Kaempferol, and Silymarin. These are anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and cancer-fighting compounds, which increase the number of CB1 receptors in the body, boosting the endocannabinoid system.
Hemp oil contains a combination of potent Cannabinoids terpenes & flavonoids which work together to target the different areas of your body and brain. They help to relieve dozens of symptoms and their causes. When coupled with cannabinoids, terpenes act as a treatment for mood disorders, anxiety disorders & etc. Similar to terpenes and cannabinoids, flavonoids bind with receptors in the body to exhibit antioxidant and anti-aging effects.
“This interlinking of Cannabinoids,Terpenes & Flavonoids to provide therapeutic effect on physical and mental health is known as the Entourage effect.”
What is Full Spectrum Hemp oil and why is it better than Broad Spectrum Oil and CBD isolate :
The difference between broad spectrum, full spectrum and CBD isolate is simply the chemical compound content found in each of the products.
Full spectrum Hemp oil contains all of the Cannabinoids and other plant compounds(Terpenes & Flavonoids). Broad spectrum oil contains all cannabinoids and plant compounds(Terpenes & Flavonoids) other than THC.
CBD isolate only contains CBD and is often found in crystal or powder form.
As discussed earlier in order for the Hemp oil to have a therapeutic impact on the body it is important that it has the Entourage effect which mostly happens only in the case of Full spectrum Hemp oil.
