Hemp extracts are rich with cannabidiol. Studies show that CBD has noteworthy anti-inflammatory, anti-tumoral, antipsychotic, and anticonvulsant properties with no known adverse side effects. Mainstream medicine is now incorporating hemp extracts for certain ailments for these reasons.
Along with the increasing awareness of CBD as a legitimate medicinal asset, there are still doubts among the masses. This is mainly due to the lack of education in regards to CBD.

Today, hemp extracts have quickly become the talk of the town for their ability treat ailments such as epilepsy, anxiety, depression and more. Unfortunately, due to legal restrictions, modern day mankind must get reacquainted with cannabis as a source for medicinal options.
CBD-Rich Hemp Extracts
The Power of CBD & THC
In the United States, most of what scientists know about cannabidiol is based on smaller case studies. Some of this research has provided important information into the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system plays a crucial role in health and the treatment of disease. Outside of the United States, cannabidiol remedies have been subjected to extensive case studies. It has been approved for therapeutic use in more than two-dozen countries.
A British firm has determined that a combination of CBD and THC is more effective than either compound alone. Especially, for pain management. CBD and THC are powerful as a cannabis therapeutic combination. They work best together as both compounds activate different receptors of the brain. Hemp extracts with varying CBD-to-THC ratios allow the patient to select the correct ratio that is best for them. Cannabis patients also have the option of healing without the ‘high’ by using a CBD product with only a small amount of THC.
Other CBD Delivery Methods
Cannabidiol when used as cannabis therapy is personalized medicine. What works best for someone else may not work best for you. Patients may need to experiment until they find their own ‘goldilocks zone’ with the right balance of CBD and THC. CBD-rich cannabis comes in many delivery methods. Patients can take cannabidiol in the following forms: edibles, softgel caps, sublingual sprays, tinctures, topical ointments, vape pens and more.
Resin content is what distinguishes hemp from marijuana. Hemp is low resin cannabis. Marijuana is high resin cannabis. Both CBD and THC are contained in the resin. Low resin industrial hemp is not an optimal source of CBD-rich oil. It is very important to make sure the hemp extracts are lab tested for this reason. Lab testing confirms the CBD content in the product. Too many companies are making claims about their CBD content without any testing to backup their claims.
