CBD and the Hemp Plant

If you have a general understanding of CBD and what it is, you may find it easier to determine what kind of product is right for you. CBD, in itself, is only one small part of a larger whole. Cannabidiol, which is CBD, is only one of the numerous compounds that are available in the hemp plant. CBD, just like THC, is a cannabinoid that has its own properties and its own molecular structure. THC causes psychoactive effects in the brain, yet CBD does not. When you isolate CBD from the rest of the compounds in the hemp plant you are left with a pure CBD solution. Although CBD is an amazing cannabinoid, by itself, you don’t get the additional compounds that you would get in a full-spectrum hemp extract.

The Full-Spectrum

The hemp plant can legally be grown in the United States for industrial purposes. Hemp is an offshoot of the cannabis plant. Inside the hemp plant, there are hundreds of tiny molecules and compounds known as cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and phytocannabinoids. When the manufacturer extracts hemp oil and leaves all of these compounds intact it is known as a full-spectrum extract. When a product has the full-spectrum of the hemp plant, it includes every flavinoid, cannabinoid, and terpene that is available in the hemp plant...including THC. Some people frown at the idea of consuming even a little THC, so there are other spectrums available like broad-spectrum, and CBD isolates.

What the Full-Spectrum Does

Over the years scientists have been able to discover a phenomenon known as the entourage effect. What this means is that when a person takes a hemp product into their system that has all of the compounds from the hemp plant still intact, each one of the compounds will aid the next compound in the process of delivering wellness to the person that takes it. For instance, the trace amount of THC will still have enough power to help CBD and the other cannabinoids that are present in delivering the most fulfilling results that are possible. Whether you are enjoying a CBD tincture,  CBD gummies, CBD softgels, or whatever form of CBD imaginable, you will have a choice in the spectrum that you purchase. If you are not sensitive to THC and other cannabinoids or terpenes, using a full-spectrum product allows you to get the full benefits that the hemp plant has to offer.

Getting High on Hemp Products

Hemp products are not manufactured to get people, or animals, high. Unlike their cousin, marijuana (cannabis), hemp products are not psychoactive and do not get you “high”.  The philosophy behind incorporating CBD into your daily life is one that promotes natural plant-based wellness, relaxation, and health. There is no need to worry about becoming inebriated after using CBD products because producing a high is not what using CBD is about.

Make Sure Your CBD is High Quality

Since CBD is something that you will be taking into your body, make sure that when you get it that it is coming from a trusted, reliable hemp source that takes care to grow their plants with love and health. It is important that what they say is in the product is listed as ingredients.  It’s also important to choose a company that provides independent, lab tested certificates of analysis for each of their products and puts a QR code on the bottle so you can easily reference the report.  And, always check the verified reviews to see what customers have to say about the product.  High Falls Hemp NY is a respectable hemp farming community that takes the time to cultivate the highest quality hemp that is available on the market today.
