There are many different varieties of cannabis items available. When people purchase CBD, they are usually receiving an isolated form. Meaning, the only compound present is the CBD.
So, if you're doing research and gathering information on hemp products in NZ, read on as we share the ins-and-outs of this incredible plant...
This is a top option for those who want to avoid THC (less than 0.3% THC) in their product. It means zero chance of any psychoactive effects. But, on the flipside, whole cannabis items offer additional advantageous compounds. Depending on the country you reside in, will of course, depend on the legal status of this food item.
“Whole plant medicine” describes medicine utilizing the full spectrum of therapeutic compounds found in hemp. Full spectrum and whole cannabis are often perceived as interchangeable terms, but there are variations.
You’ll find a range of health-promoting beneficial compounds inside both pure hemp oil and CBD oil. Though, they are not the same. Hemp is often referred to as "hemp seed oil" made from cold-pressed hemp seeds. CBD oil is an isolated item.
Some beneficial compounds you may be familiar with in hempseed, such as omega fatty acids. However, whole plant oils also contain cannabinoids, which are necessary to activate the ever-powerful endocannabinoid system; and terpenes, the naturally occurring and highly beneficial compounds found inside most plant species.
With Full Spectrum, often the green matter is removed, which includes some fatty acids, lipids, and the naturally occurring taste from the extract. We believe full spec is the best of them all.
Whole cannabis oils have far superior therapeutic applications than isolated products. This is because they contain high-quality ingredients that are thought to work much more effectively than isolates, just ensure there are no nasty low-grade fillers. This provides you with all of the benefits that cannabis has to offer.
Industrial hemp varieties are usually cheaper, but there’s a reason for that. Industrial cannabis is in its natural state and hasn’t undergone selective breeding. iHemp generally has very low THC levels (with our New Zealand made items, there’s less than 0.013%THC) and lower CBD levels as well.
Fillers like trans-fats and corn syrup should by no means ever wind up inside your bottle. With more stringent quality standards, a good company would ensure corners are not being cut to get a product on shelves. The natural CBD content will be significantly higher and the extraction methods will produce a higher quality product. Due to the cleaner nature and benefit-boasting product, this will generally cost more than iHemp.
The health-promoting endocannabinoid-activating benefits offered by whole products definitely justify the additional cost. Because there are many products available on Amazon, offline and online, be sure to choose one with as many of the naturally occurring cannabinoids present in the product as possible, as these compounds will affect multiple targets within the body. The immense relief from conditions, ailments and diseases (like pain, inflammation, anxiety) will have a faster onset and longer-lasting effect.
The US based company Whole Foods sell different varieties of hemp oils, such as hemp seed oil and depending on the location, CBD hemp oil and full spectrum among other cannabis items.
We hope this article has answered your questions and helped to provide insight for you in the differences between the varieties of cannabis oils available in your location.
