Choosing between hemp and CBD is not an easy decision. Many factors need to be taken into account when deciding which plant will work best for you. This blog post goes over the benefits of each product and its drawbacks so that it is easier to make your final decision.
Let’s have a look at the Hemp Vs CBD Oil!
What Is Your Purpose?
The first and foremost thing to consider is your purpose. Are you looking for the psychoactive effects of THC, or do you want a product with no psychoactive properties?
CBD does not have any intoxicating side effects and has even been found in some cases to counteract the stoned feeling that can be caused by too much THC. However, CBD alone will only go so far if it’s used as a medical treatment.
It may relieve pain and decrease inflammation, but there are limits on its efficacy since it doesn’t bind directly to CB receptors as other cannabinoids do.
Hemp products contain both CBD and THC together, which makes them more effective at relieving symptoms when compared to their separated counterparts.
Because hemp contains many different cannabinoids, including CBC, CBG, and CBN, its ability to bind directly with the receptors that control pain is much greater than CBD alone.
Points To Be Noted:
- CBD does not need additional processing once it has been extracted from its source because of its lack of THC content (hemp oil must be decarboxylated).
However, hemp still requires a little more effort as far as production goes since all parts of the plant can’t be used to retain all of its cannabinoids. So hemp plants have to undergo an extraction process before being added into finished products or used medicinally.
- The price tag will also play a role in your final decision between cannabis and cbd/hemp.
Overall prices depend on what you’re looking for but know that CBD and hemp products are much more affordable than their cannabis counterparts, especially when you consider that THC-concentrated products will also cost a lot to produce.
- If you’re looking for something with no psychoactive effects, then go with CBD oil or cbd/hemp extract (such as in our NatureCBD Capsules ). These contain meager amounts of THC, which means they won’t get anyone high if taken by someone who doesn’t want any psychological effects.
It’s essential, however, to know what milligram strength is suitable for your body because this can vary from person to person depending on how it interacts with receptors in the brain.
In conclusion, both CBD and hemp effectively relieve pain, inflammation, and other symptoms associated with medical conditions such as arthritis. You can choose for yourself.
