Frequently asked questions

Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown for the many uses of its derived products. It is one of the fastest-growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber 10,000 years ago. It can be refined into various commercial items, including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, and animal feed. However, hemp is also used for CBD oil and other medicinal purposes. It is important to note that hemp contains very low levels of THC, the psychoactive compound found in marijuana.

Hemp oil is an oil obtained by pressing hemp seeds. These seeds do not contain the same compounds as the plant. However, they still have a rich profile of nutrients, fatty acids, and useful bioactive compounds. Hemp oil is typically high in CBD and other beneficial compounds and low in THC, making it safe for consumption. It is commonly used as a food supplement, an ingredient in skincare products, and a base for industrial products like paint and biofuel.

It is also used as a base for medicinal products like CBD oil.

Hemp seed oil should not be confused with “CBD oil” or “Hemp Extract oil” which is

made from the leaves, flowers, and stalks of the hemp plant and contains higher levels of CBD and other cannabinoids.

Hemp and marijuana are both varieties of the Cannabis sativa plant species. Still, they have significant differences in their chemical composition and their legal status.

Marijuana is bred specifically for its high THC content, which is responsible for its psychoactive effects. It is typically used for recreational and medicinal purposes.

Hemp, on the other hand, is bred for industrial uses and typically contains less than 0.3% THC, which is not enough to produce psychoactive effects. It is used for many products, including food, clothing, and construction materials. Another significant difference is the legal status of the two plants. Marijuana is still considered a controlled substance in many countries, and its cultivation, possession, and use are illegal in many places. Hemp, on the other hand, is legal to grow and use in many countries and is considered a valuable crop for its industrial uses.

The main difference between hemp and marijuana is its THC content and legal status.

While hemp is low in THC and legal, marijuana is high in THC and is considered a controlled substance.

Terpenes are a class of organic compounds found in many plants, including hemp. They are responsible for the distinct aroma and flavor of different cannabis strains and other plants. Terpenes are produced in the plant's trichomes, which are small resin glands covering the leaves and buds.

Terpenes have been found to have various beneficial properties, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-anxiety effects. They also interact with other compounds in the plant, such as cannabinoids like CBD, to produce a phenomenon known as the entourage effect. This is the theory that all the compounds in the hemp plant work together to produce a greater effect than any single compound alone.

Some of the most common terpenes found in hemp include:

  • Myrcene: Known for its sedative and relaxing effects. 
  • Limonene: Known for its uplifting and anxiety-reducing effects.
  • Pinene: Known for its anti-inflammatory and bronchodilator effects.
  • Linalool: Known for its calming and sedative effects.
  • Caryophyllene: Known for its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects.

It is important to note that the terpene profile may vary depending on the strain, growing conditions, and how it is processed. Furthermore, not all hemp products will have terpenes, as they can be lost during the processing or extraction of the oil.

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is a naturally occurring compound in the marijuana plant. It is the primary psychoactive ingredient responsible for the "high" associated with marijuana use. When THC enters the body, it binds to cannabinoid receptors in the brain and central nervous system, triggering a release of dopamine and other neurotransmitters, leading to changes in perception, mood, and behavior. It can also affect the functioning of the immune system and has been used for medicinal purposes, such as pain relief and treatment of nausea.

THC content can vary depending on the strain of marijuana and the way it is grown, processed, and consumed. Typically, marijuana plants grown for recreational use have a higher THC content usually above 10%

It is important to note that marijuana is still considered a controlled substance in many countries, and its cultivation, possession, and use are illegal in many places. However, some countries and states have legalized marijuana for medical and/or recreational use.

In these places, it is regulated and sold in dispensaries, and the THC content is usually labeled on the packaging.

CBD (Cannabidiol) is a naturally occurring compound found in the marijuana plant. It is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not produce the associated with THC. It is known for its potential therapeutic benefits, such as reducing anxiety, pain, inflammation, and seizures. Unlike THC, CBD does not bind directly to the cannabinoid receptors in the brain but instead interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate functions such as appetite, sleep, and immune system response. CBD can be extracted from marijuana plants and can be made synthetically. CBD products can be found in various forms, such as oils, capsules, edibles, topicals, and vape liquids.

CBD is derived from hemp, a cannabis plant that contains very low levels of THC. It is important to note that the legality of CBD products varies depending on the country, state, and source of CBD. In countries and states where marijuana is legal for medical or recreational use, CBD products derived from marijuana may also be legal. However, in places where marijuana is illegal, CBD products derived from marijuana may also be illegal.

Terpenes, THC, and CBD are all compounds found in the marijuana plant, but they have different properties and effects.

Terpenes are organic compounds responsible for the distinct aroma and flavor of different cannabis strains. They have been found to have various beneficial properties, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-anxiety effects. They also interact with other compounds in the plant, such as cannabinoids like CBD, to produce a phenomenon known as the entourage effect.

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the primary psychoactive ingredient responsible for the “high” associated with marijuana use. It binds to cannabinoid receptors in the brain and central nervous system, triggering a release of dopamine and other neurotransmitters, leading to changes in perception, mood, and behavior. It is also used for medicinal purposes, such as pain relief and treatment of nausea.

CBD (Cannabidiol) is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not produce the “high” associated with THC. It is known for its potential therapeutic benefits, such as reducing anxiety, pain, inflammation, and seizures. Unlike THC, CBD does not bind directly to the cannabinoid receptors in the brain but instead interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate functions such as appetite, sleep, and immune system response.

In summary, Terpenes are responsible for the aroma and flavor of marijuana. At the same time, THC is the primary psychoactive compound that causes the “high” associated with marijuana use, and CBD is the non-psychoactive compound with therapeutic benefits.

Hemp, a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant, typically contains very low levels of THC, the psychoactive compound found in marijuana that is responsible for the "high" associated with marijuana use. Therefore, smoking hemp will not produce the same psychoactive effects as smoking marijuana.

It’s important to note that the legal definition of hemp contains no more than 0.3% THC, which is insufficient to produce any significant psychoactive effects. Therefore, if you smoke hemp, you will not feel the high associated with THC.
