There seems to be some confusion in the CBD marketplace about what is better when it comes to getting your CBD from whole plant sources like Hemp or as an isolated single compound. It seems natural that the the whole plant must be better but lets look at the differences.
CBD Isolates are all part of what is called “single compound” or “single molecule” CBD.
According to a 2015 study published in the journal Pharmacology and Pharmacy by an Israeli research team they found the following:
“These studies showed that administration of pure, single-molecule CBD resulted in a bell-shaped dose-response curve, meaning that when the amount of CBD exceeded a certain point its therapeutic impact declined dramatically. “Healing was only observed when CBD was given within a very limited dose range, whereas no beneficial effect was achieved at either lower or higher doses,” the authors observed. This characteristic of single-molecule CBD—manifested as a bell-shaped dose response—imposes serious obstacles that limit its usefulness in a clinical context.”
What that means is that if you take the right amount; not too low and not too high, you can certainly see some beneficial results.
Now lets compare the CBD from Whole plant sources.
Whole Plant CBD
The CBD from whole plant sources like HEMP are legal in all 50 states and many countries because it does not contain any THC. You can take this with no worries about legality and workplace drug testing. I would suggest you focus on the whole plant hemp sources if you are very concerned about it as it is a different plant and the CBD is not a marijuana derivative.
According to the Israeli study when they tested the Whole plant CBD the effects were pronounced. The anti-inflammatory effects were signification at any dosage, as they state here:
“it is superior over CBD for the treatment of inflammatory conditions.” The greater efficiency of the whole plant extract might be explained by additive or synergistic interactions between CBD and dozens of minor phytocannabinoids and hundreds of non-cannabinoid plant compounds. “It is likely that other components in the extract synergize with CBD to achieve the desired anti-inflammatory action that may contribute to overcoming the bell-shaped dose-response of purified CBD,” the Israeli team surmised.
Using whole plant hemp gives your body the “entourage effect”. Simply meaning, you benefit from all of the cannabinoids that are found in hemp, along with all of the other beneficial natural compounds hemp contains. Together your body is receiving the maximum benefit from this plant. Cannabinoid receptors are present in every organ of the body, including the nerves for the purpose of reducing the effects of stress. They are the pressure release valve of your body. Out of all of the cannabinoids, cannabidiol (CBD) is the star cannabinoid and works best in the presence of other cannabinoids and compounds found in hemp. CBDs trigger retroactive neuro-transmitters that reduce over stimulated and over stressed nerves. This results in an over stressed person keeping their biochemistry in balance so they can sleep, have an overall feeling of well-being and be less irritable.*
What does all that mean to you and me?
- It promotes better sleep*
- You may have less anxiousness*
- It means less pain. Pain is caused by inflammation. Reducing it, reduces the pain. Plain and simple.*
- Assists in managing stress*
- Increases focus*
- Provides and over-all sense of well-being*
- Restores the body through vital nutrition*
NO. Hemp is not Marijuana!
Hemp is a different plant and has different chemical constituents than marijuana. While they both belong to the same plant species, they are two distinct varieties. The most important difference between hemp and marijuana is that marijuana has high psychoactive THCs (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) however, the hemp used in Hempworx and NutraHG contains such a low level of THC that it is designated as THC free. The hemp plant contains cannabinoids that benefit every organ of the body resulting in a reduction of stress.
The CBD oil I recommend is supplied by Hempworx and is THC free and Non GMO all Organic. To learn more about it CLICK HERE.
There is also a new product called NutraHG. It is a beverage mix packet that mixes with water. It is a whole plant hemp CBD product that also has additional chlorophyll rich super greens as well as a perfect balance of Omegas-3, 6, 9 and 12.
