1.) What Is CBD Hemp?
CBD, Cannabidiol, is a phytocannabinoid found in the cannabis sativa plant, including the hemp variety. It is one of over 100 identified cannabinoids and is one of the two primary cannabinoids the other one is THC. THC is known for creating a ‘high’ or euphoric effect and CBD is non-euphoric or does not create a ‘high’. The hemp plant has a high concentration of CBD and a very low concentration of THC (hemp is federally regulated not to exceed 0.3% THC).
2.) What Is Full Spectrum CBD Hemp Extract?
Our Anthill Farm homegrown, organic CBD Hemp Extract is extracted using CO2 extraction method, which yields the purest CBD. Our Certified Organic Homegrown Hemp is the foundation for producing the highest quality hemp CBD Extract that contains the full-spectrum of beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and more.
This provides the complete profile of naturally occurring beneficial compounds of the plant. This is often referred to as the ‘entourage effect’ meaning that all of the plant compounds work together synergistically to deliver the optimum health benefits.
3.) What Are Terpenes?
Terpenes are aromatic molecules in plants that make up the basic foundation of the plant’s essential oils. In cannabis sativa these molecules are produced from the tiny resinous trichomes of the plant. They make up the aroma and flavor of the hemp plant and those characteristics vary according to the strain and elemental conditions of cultivation.
Terpenes and the terpene profile play a significant synergistic role in the full-spectrum efficacy of CBD Hemp Flower and CBD Hemp extract. The value of the interactions of the terpenes with the cannabinoids for health has become a significant area of interest and research! Stay tuned!
4.) How Does CBD Work?
The human, and all mammalian bodies, have what is known as the Endocannabinoid System. This is a vast biological system of endocannabinoids that are naturally produced by the body, which then bind to cannabinoid receptors on cells found throughout the brain, organs, muscles, skeletal system and immune system.
CBD, which is a plant-based cannabinoid, in some ways mimics the body’s endocannabinoids and both directly and indirectly interacts with these receptors. It is through these interactions that CBD provides a vast array of benefits to human and mammalian health.
5.) How Does CBD Work On The Skin?
When CBD Oil Balm is applied topically to the skin it does not enter the bloodstream: however, it does penetrate deep into the skin. The CBD then interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the Endocannabinoid System that are within our layer of skin. It is due to this interaction that CBD topicals provide an array of benefits due to powerful anti-inflammatory effects on the body.
CBD topicals can be used to directly target painful or sore muscles and joints for relief and recovery. CBD Oil topicals also provide direct benefits to the skin itself, for treatment of skin irritations as well as for skincare and healthy glowing skin.
6.) What is Organic Hemp Flower and How Do I Use It?
Anthill Farm’s homegrown, organic hemp flower is cultivated to provide a pure, relaxing CBD Hemp smoking experience. Our organic hemp flower is available in Pre-Rolls or Per-Gram Packages to smoke with a flower vaporizer or however one so chooses.
Smoking or vaping organic CBD hemp flower is not only an enjoyable way to experience CBD; it also provides rapid delivery and increases the bioavailability of the CBD by 25% or more.
7.) What Is The Difference Between CBD Hemp Extract And Hemp Oil?
The difference between CBD oil, or CBD hemp extract, and hemp oil from hemp seeds are often misunderstood.
CBD Oil or CBD Hemp Extract is extracted from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. The flowers and leaves have the highest concentration of CBD.
Hemp oil is extracted from hemp seeds. Although hemp seeds and hemp seed oil are full of nutritional value, as well as provide many benefits to the skin, it does not contain concentrations of CBD.
8.) Can You Overdose On CBD Oil and Does It Have Side Effects?
CBD has been shown to be non-toxic and safe to use without fear of overdose. That said, anything could be harmful to some degree if taken in excessive amounts. With CBD oil, less is more, when it comes to efficacy!
For dosing, always start with a very small dose and increase little by little, over time, if needed.
It is of utmost importance to consult your medical practitioner before taking Hemp CBD Extract, especially if:
* You are on medication for a medical condition
* If you are taking any kind of prescription medication for any reason because there could be a possible reaction between the medication and CBD.
The only side effects for CBD oil that have been reported are dry mouth and a bit of lethargy, in some people.
9.) What Is The Benefit In Choosing Certified Organic Hemp?
Certified Organic Hemp is free from pesticides and herbicides, which means you will not be taking in these harmful toxins when using Hemp CBD Products.
It is important to note that the hemp plant itself removes toxins from the soil, which they accumulate in their cells. This is great news for using hemp to clean toxic soil; however, when it comes to consuming hemp products it is of vital importance to look for only high quality certified organic hemp products that are good for your body and the planet!
Unfortunately, many hemp producers label their products as “organically grown” which is a classification that has no oversight at all, basically anyone can make that claim. There is very little regulation in the hemp industry therefore it is of the utmost importance to source from people that you trust and certified organic sources.
10.) What is Agroforestry?
Agroforestry is an agricultural system in which annual crops are grown in the alleyways between rows of trees or woody perennial crops.
This design, utilized at Anthill Farm, mimics the most dynamic, active state of succession in natural systems!
Experience the difference in efficacy and quality of Anthill Farm’s homegrown certified organic CBD Hemp products, grown using agroforestry; your body will love you for it and you will be supporting farming practices that create high levels of biodiversity and are rooted in sound conservation methodologies!
