While the benefits are plentiful, you may have a few questions, especially if you’re new to the world of hemp extract. We get it! Using the hemp plant for a variety of purposes has existed since the early civilizations but with that has arisen some confusion about how hemp is different from marijuiana and what part CBD plays in it all! Honeysuckle Scientific is here to share our extensive understanding of hemp extract and equip you with knowledge!
Difference Between Hemp and Marijuana
The common questions seem to revolve around: are hemp and cannabis related and are marijuiana and hemp the same? Cannabis has been commonly used interchangeably with marijuna, so when you hear cannabis, it is most often referring to marijuana.
Simply put, both hemp and marijuana come from cannabis, a type of flowering plant in the Cannabaceae family. However, there are major differences between hemp and cannabis in terms of the application uses, side effects, and legal ramifications. These differences revolve mainly around the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content. THC is one of many cannabinoids, or chemicals, found in the cannabis plant which results in the “high” associated with marijuiana.
You may be asking: does hemp have THC? Hemp extract only includes cannabis that contains 0.3 percent or less of THC. Honeysuckle Scientific follows a procedure that removes all but trace amounts of the THC, leaving our hemp products with 0% THC. What this means is there is no way you will get a “high” from our hemp extract drops, capsules, or creams. So is hemp extract legal? Yes, Honeysuckle hemp extract products are completely legal!
CBD from Hemp vs Cannabis
That brings up the next question: what is CBD and how is it associated with hemp extract? CBD (cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid which is reported to have numerous health benefits. CBD is found in all cannabis plants to some extent, which means it can be derived from either hemp or marijuana. However, cannabis/marijuana has a large concentration of THC and a small concentration of CBD (Cannabidiol). On the other hand, hemp has a large concentration of CBD and a low amount (or almost none) of THC.
Full-spectrum hemp extract contains beneficial CBD along with other cannabinoids and terpenes. Working together, these natural elements found in hemp plants help a number of ailments, including chronic pain, anxiety, sleeplessness, and skin conditions, to name a few.
