What is the Difference between Hemp Extract and CBD?
Full-Spectrum Hemp Extract and CBD come from the Cannabis Sativa plant and contain the whole plant full of cannabinoids, including THC. Unless the company specifically states their product is THC Free, you should assume it contains THC (which is the same psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana).
Hemp Extract may be a term used to describe Isolated CBD, which is the chemical form CBD and does not contain the many benefits obtained from the full plant CO2 extraction. When shopping Hemp Extract products (CBD), it is best to look for Full Spectrum CBD. Researchers out of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Lautenberg Center for General and Tumor Immunology discovered what’s now called the “entourage effect.” This refers to the functioning of CBD along with other cannabis plant compounds, rather than just by itself.
You can request a 3rd party test if in question as to your Hemp Extract being the chemical isolate or the Full Spectrum.
