CBD's first major impression out to the world came out in a big way when the chemical in the simple plant stopped an epileptic seizure in its track on U.S. National Television. Since then, the popularity and the portrayals of CBD actually working to aid certain illnesses has gone way up.
With the growing popularity of the cannabis industry and the availability of information regarding medical marijuana, we are in a better position to understand the benefits and wonders of this plant. As much as we get to know about the benefits of cannabis, we are also exposed to a lot of ambiguity and misconception. Let’s understand the different types of CBD products available in the stores around us.
CBD Oil. CBD Isolate. Full spectrum CBD. There are so many science terms when it comes to CBD oil.
Is there a difference between these two CBD oil products? There is! When CBD oil is first extracted from hemp, the extract contains a large amount of CBD, but it also includes a whole host of other compounds. When a full-spectrum product is formulated, all of those compounds are kept in the product. On the other hand, a CBD isolate is purified to remove those other compounds and just keep pure CBD.
With the hemp market booming now after the 2018 farm bill, new CBD products are practically popping up all over the place. It can be overwhelming. How do you know that CBD will even work for you? How do you know which CBD brands to trust?
Companies like Meds BioTech have created what is called pharmacist-formulated CBD. But what does pharmacist-formulated CBD mean?
In the you-learn-something-new-every-day department, although hemp and CBD oil are becoming much more mainstream as a result of the recent changes in federal laws, most people aren’t aware the fact that hemp does not naturally produce cannabidiol, aka CBD.
Wait. What? Nearly every mainstream news media outlet says that CBD comes from hemp. How can they all be wrong?
