All Things Hemp – Terpenes
Terpenes are simple organic compounds made up of various elements on the periodic table in varying arrangements creating different scents and various health benefits. These compounds create many of the familiar scents and flavors in hemp strains as well as other botanicals.
All things hemp includes the explanation about terpenes that they have the ability to interact with other compounds in the hemp plant in order to activate synergistic benefits. In the hemp community it is referred to as “The. Entourage Effect.”
All Things Hemp — Bioavailability
Bioavailability is about two things – the potency of what you consume, smoke or vape and the method you consume, smoke or vape. So, when you are purchasing your CBD product, it is important to be attentive to the potency. Ask for the Certificate of Analysis (COA) of the product to confirm its potency.
All things hemp shows us that one way to improve the bioavailability rate is to consume CBD sublingually that way it enters the metabolic system via the sublingual gland under the tongue. The CBD can be delivered in this manner with oil, tincture, spray or lozenge so that it can impact the body more quickly and effectively.
The second way to ingest CBD with the highest bioavailability is to eat it with foods that enhance bioavailability. A small study done at a University lab suggests that fatty acids taken with the CBD increase its bioavailability because they act as binding agents meaning that the dose of CBD is able to attach to them and be metabolized effectively into energy.
All Things Hemp – Ancient Use
Despite stigmatization and restrictions of CBD hemp through the years, cannabis derivatives like CBD have been used throughout history. Queen Victoria ruled England from 1837 to her death in 1901. She knew of the pain-relieving quality because the history books tell us she used it as a pain relief for menstrual cramps.
All things hemp reveals that J.R. Reynolds, Queen Victoria’s physician, prescribed cannabis her during her reign. Reynolds was a physician to the entire royal household after 1878 until his death in 1896. During that time, he recommended cannabis for a variety of ailments including asthma, migraines, depression and epilepsy.
All Things Hemp – Hemp Dictionary
- Cannabis indica — A strain of cannabis marijuana that has higher concentrations of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Indica is known for its sedative effects whether marijuana indica or hemp indica. But hemp indica will not have over 0.3% THC.
- Cannabis sativa – This strain of cannabis, whether marijuana or hemp, usually gives a cerebral high for marijuana. For hemp sativa, it provides an alertness with focus and more productivity.
- Closed-loop extraction — An extraction method in which solvents are not exposed to the open air, so the term “closed-loop”. This method is considered safer than “open-blasting” and is currently required for all legal concentrate production in certain states. Extraction is used to procure hash, dry sieve, and hash oils as they have such high potency.
- Concentrates (or extracts) — Hemp concentrates are extracted to keep the most desirable medicinal compounds while removing excess plant material. These are significantly more potent than standard cannabis bud or flower. These concentrates are very important and beneficial for multiple medical applications.
