The least processed form of the cannabis plant is hemp. Hemp contains most of the CBD that people use medicinally. Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant. Cannabis sativa. But the two are very different.
Over the years. The marijuana farmers have selectively bred their plants to contain high levels of THC. And other compounds that interested them. often because the compounds produced a smell or had another effect on the plant’s flowers.
However, hemp farmers have rarely modified the plant. These hemp plants are used to create cannabidiol.
The oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant. Then dilute it with a carrier oil like olive or hemp seed oil.
CBD oil is a mega-trend in the beauty and wellness industries right now. And it’s larger than life in food and drink.
