The past 10 years has seen a huge shift in the understanding of cannabis plants, which include hemp and marijuana. There has been a great deal of confusion about hemp products and many people don’t understand the distinction between hemp and marijuana. In simplest terms marijuana contains significant amounts of a cannabinoid known as THC. THC is the psychoactive compound in marijuana. Hemp, also know as industrial hemp, has very little THC. Hemp is the source of many beneficial components. Hemp fibers are used in fabrics and are often mixed with other natural fibers such as cotton and linen. Other parts of the hemp fibers are used to make rope. The seeds are used for protein and oil and are also used nutritionally for animals and humans. And now we are discovering the value of CBD oil from hemp.
What is emerging from both the science and consumer usage is a product called CBD or cannabidiol. There is a tremendous amount of research that has been done in this area. In fact, the U.S. government holds a patent on CBD oil through the Department of Health and Human Services. When you search PubMed.gov for cannabidiol you will find over 1300 studies. The interest in cannabidiol grew when Dr. Sanjay Gupta from CNN News did several stories on the oil and the dramatic results seen in some children with serious epileptic seizure disorders. The results are astounding. Here is one of the many videos that you can find on YouTube. Search: Sanjay Gupta weed and you will find numerous videos to watch.
One of the challenges facing consumers is finding a high quality CBD oil from reputable companies like Cannavest. In this interview with Stuart Tomc, we will discuss this issue. Stuart is the VicePresident of Human Nutrition for Cannavest. Cannavest produces 90% of the world’s CBD oil. The plants are grown in Holland and the oil is extracted and then shipped to the U.S. This ensures that the product has passed inspection upon importation. It also suggests that CBD is considered differently than THC-containing plants or products. Legal opinion exists stating that CBD does not violate current drug law because it is a non-psychoactive ingredient. Cannavest CBD oil can be found at some select natural products retailers. You can also purchase directly from Cannavest by going to their website at Cannavest.com. We also suggest that you seek out your local natural products retailers to see if they carry CBD oil.
