What is Full Spectum Hemp (CBD) oil?
Full spectrum CBD contains a variety of essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, protein, chlorophyll, terpenes, flavonoids, and fiber. When referring to CBD in the hemp plant, it’s important to understand that Hemp contains a large number of cannabinoids (in trace amounts), but the main compounds are CBD and cannabidiolic acid (CBDa). As CBDa is more abundant in the hemp plant, firms must decarboxylate the oil. This process heats the oil and changes CBDa into CBD.
Its important to understand that CBD from Cannabis is only legal in Medical or recreational states, while CBD hemp oil is legal in all 50 states under the 2014 US Farm Bill. While it may not be able to treat all conditions it has been known to assist with a variety of medical conditions including anxiety, depression and acute pain.
This type of Hemp Oil is the main ingredient in our Daily Stress and Anxiety relief chews and our Calming and Pain Relief Sprays.
How does hemp work?
Hemp is an amazing substance, and there has been long documented research on it's effects and benefits. There is hard science behind how hemp works, and why it works in dogs and in humans.
Hemp contains naturally occurring compounds called cannabinoids. There are over 140 known cannabinoids that have been identified in hemp and these cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system found in animals and in humans.
Cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) are found throughout the body and brain, and each various receptors affect different functions. Some cannabinoid receptors affect pain sensation, some affect mood and anxiety, some appetite and some work on inflammation and the immune system. The function of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain a stable environment in the body.
The cannabinoids found in the hemp that we use work by stimulating these receptors, and can signal the body to build more cannabinoid receptors.
