Yes, CBD oils made from marijuana (sativa or indica) can have higher concentrations of both CBD–as well as CBN and THC (the latter is the “main attraction” because it’s psychoactive). But because not everyone can lawfully buy them (and those who can must purchase in person from a state-licensed dispensary) and they’re not available online except to customers living in certain recreational-weed-legal states, they aren’t being reviewed here. Also, MJ-derived CBD oils are not as widely produced and sold.
So, with all this talk of marijuana and THC and being ‘high’, we typically find the next question to be: IS CBD LEGAL. And, as you are probably well aware, there are several states where CBD extracts from marijuana are legal, there are many more that are not. But, point blank, CBD extracted from hemp, whether singularly or as a full spectrum cannabinoid blend, is legal in all 50 states.
Since our beginning, Medical Marijuana, Inc. has been striving to bring the health benefits of cannabinoids to the lives of as many people as possible through cannabinoid hemp oil supplements. With our knowledge of cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system just scratching the surface of what’s possible, there is plenty of potential to find new uses for the myriad of cannabinoids available to us.
Cannabidiol is a plant compound extracted from cannabis (either marijuana or hemp) that is being reported by many to have positive effects on many conditions which have been requiring pharmaceutical solutions, such as cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, anxiety, TMJ, restless leg syndrome and so much more. CBD extracts from marijuana typically have THC to some extent, thus causing some degree of ‘high’ and may or may not be legal where you live. CBD extracts from hemp can either by CBD (singluarly) or in full spectrum cannabinoid blends. Many people find relief with CBD in singular fashion, but best results are typically reported after taking CBD in full spectrum extracts.
My bigger question is what about analytics ? So many bad lab’s out there in Cannabis and Hemp. Did they test for Pesticides ? Mycotoxins ? Heavy Metals (Hemp is great at dragging up heavy metals from the soil as well as from nutrient solutions, herbicides, etc..). The testing piece is critical and that a lab performs random testing to ensure that the final products on the shelf actually contain what’s on the label. Even good test results mean nothing if the product is cut after the testing.
