What’s difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

Hemp and Marijuana come from the same plant family, but are completely different in function, cultivation and application. Marijuana generally has a high level of THC (a psychoactive compound that makes you feel “high”) and is used for medicinal or recreational purpose. Hemp contains a negligible amount of THC (but is high in CBD) and is used in dietary supplements, skin products, clothing and paper.

Just like oranges and lemons are both citrus, hemp and marijuana are both cannabis, but look different and have a different chemical makeup.

What is CBD Oil?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound that comes from the hemp plant. It is one of more than 85 unique compounds found in hemp, known as cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are known to promote health and keep people resilient to changes in their environment.

CBD does not make you “high.” CBD is non-psychoactive (it doesn’t make you feel euphoric) and is considered extremely safe. In fact, CBD can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC, the compound of marijuana that make you feel “high.”

How does it work?

That’s a two part answer.

First, it strikes a balance.

The human body is self-regulating, so like a tightrope walker, it’s constantly shifting to keep balanced and healthy—a process called homeostasis. One way our bodies maintain homeostasis is via the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).

The ECS is made up of receptors on cell membranes that regulate a variety of processes including eating, sleeping, relaxation and cognition. The ECS also assists in the body’s overall recovery and repair.

Secondly, cannabinoids are keys to our health. Our bodies naturally produce compounds called “endocannabinoids” (endo=inside) that bind to those receptors, like a key fitting into a lock. CBD Oil is a plant-based cannabinoid–or phytocannabinoid (phyto= plant)–that acts upon cell receptors in a similar way.

Whether formed in the body or ingested in plant-based substances like CBD Oil, cannabinoids are “keys” that can unlock your body’s natural ability to maintain health.

Let’s Talk Farming.

The folks who farm the hemp for our USDA certified organic products are deeply committed to regenerative farming practices. They’ve been farming organically for many years. They conserve water and till minimally. They use companion crops and cover crops, which helps to sequester carbon and add diversity to the soil. They don’t put chemicals on their fields – ever. If you’ve ever talked to an organic farmer, you’ll know it’s ALL about soil health, and often that requires doing things in ways that require more hands-on work, and often take longer. But they’re not complaining; they wouldn’t have it any other way.

But what about the farmers who grow hemp for our non-organic products? Actually, those folks do most everything the old-fashioned way, too. They have low energy and water use at the farm, and avoid soil erosion by timing their soil cultivation and ground cover plants just right. They allow some of that non-hemp vegetation to stick around a bit longer; it helps keep the soil healthy, and it helps keep the soil from blowing away during drier weather. They also use reduced tilling practices and amend their fields with compost as needed. Chemical pesticides? Not needed. That’s the job of a nice big praying mantis population, and sometimes nematodes, too. Weeding is done manually.

It all takes a bit more time and work this way, but our farmers care about the land they grow on and the planet we all share. Sometimes what seems old fashioned is really just the right way to do things.
