How does hemp extract work?
Cannabidiol (CBD) in hemp extract works as an "indirect antagonist," modulating different chemical responses within the body by blocking or inhibiting interactions with receptors in our Endocannabinoid System. These receptors exist abundantly throughout the human body’s cells and tissues, allowing CBD to interact with the body’s pain, inflammation and stress responses. It is also thought that CBD may enable the ECS to use more of its own endocannabinoids by eliminating the enzyme responsible for consuming them, allowing more to stay in circulation in the body.
When should I use hemp extract?
Millions of Americans use hemp extract products daily. Hemp extract with cannabidiol has not shown to impede motor or memory function, often associated with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and thus is considered safe to use at any point in the consumer’s day. Choosing when and how to consume hemp extract products will be specific to the desired effects, the potential symptoms the consumer is experiencing, and the preferred method of consumption. For example one might try topical cream when experiencing muscle pain or a tincture drop before bed to assist with insomnia.
Will hemp extract get me high?
No. Hemp extract with cannabidiol (CBD) is non-psychoactive and non-intoxicating. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the psychoactive compound that binds with receptors in our brain, producing a “high” or euphoric feeling. In order to be legal in the US, hemp extract products must contain less than “0.3%” THC. Studies suggest consuming THC below this percentage will not induce psychoactive effects, or impair cognitive or psychomotor abilities.
More about hemp extract topicals.
Hemp extract topicals are any kind of hemp extract infused cream, lotions, balms or gels that can be applied directly to the skin. Hemp extract topicals are thought to assist with muscle pain relief and even skin conditions such as acne or eczema. They can be an excellent choice for someone considering hemp extract for targeted effectiveness, as they are applied locally and absorbed through the skin, as opposed to ingesting and entering the bloodstream.
Is hemp extract safe? Is it safe for my family?
