Why Organic Hemp Extract is Better Than CBD?
There’s a powerful plant that’s been used for healing throughout history, and it’s making a welcome comeback. This plant is hemp, and it contains a plethora of substances that are being studied for their potential therapeutic benefits. Learn why organic hemp extract is better than CBD.
Hemp is an ancient and once revered crop. Our ancestor’s used it for food, fiber, fuel, and medicine. They harnessed the restorative properties of living, vital hemp plants to address a wide variety of ailments.
Now, science is catching up to what our forebearers already knew. Studies have shown that hemp compounds, of which cannabidiol (CBD) is the most well-known, can relieve many conditions.
But CBD is just one of the many constituents in hemp, and living plants have more to offer than CBD. Whole-plant hemp extracts contain a host of other beneficial compounds, including terpenes, flavonoids, and essential fatty acids. These substances work together to amplify their therapeutic benefits, a phenomenon known as the entourage effect.
Organic hemp extract is potent and natural, meaning it’s a safe and effective way to support well-being. It’s also superior to CBD in various ways and the ideal choice for those looking to experience the full therapeutic benefits of hemp.
To understand why organic hemp extract is a superior choice to CBD, it’s important to understand how these two substances differ.
What is CBD?
CBD is one of the 120 different cannabinoids found in hemp plants. It doesn’t produce intoxicating effects, making it a popular choice for those seeking the health benefits of medical cannabis without the cerebral high associated with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
While CBD is the most well-known cannabinoid, it’s far from the only one. And what many consumers don’t know is that living hemp plants contain very little CBD.
Why? Because CBD is only formed when hemp plants are harvested and processed. Living plants contain acidic precursor compounds, including cannabigerolic acid (CBGa), the mother of all cannabinoids, and cannabidiolic acid (CBDa), the parent of CBD.
To create finished CBD oil, manufacturers use extreme heat, chemicals, and harsh processes to dry and treat hemp plants. These complex treatments decarboxylate the parent compounds and give rise to CBD and some other cannabinoids.
The resulting finished products contain CBD but don’t include the rich diversity of hemp compounds that Mother Nature intended.
Why is organic hemp extract better than CBD?
Simply put, hemp extract contains a wider range of beneficial compounds than CBD alone. Furthermore, these organic chemicals work together to support health from every angle through the entourage effect.
This fascinating phenomenon means that the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. The beneficial flavonoids, terpenes, essential fatty acids, and other cannabinoids in organic extract interact with and support each other to create a more potent effect than they could on their own.
Unlike CBD oil, full-spectrum organic hemp extract harnesses the true power of Mother Nature. Nothing we can manufacture or design in a lab comes close to the complexity and healing power of plant extracts in their true, natural form.
Furthermore, besides the rich diversity of compounds in organic hemp extract, there are other reasons it’s a more desirable choice than CBD. The organic extract contains high levels of CBDa, which is superior to CBD in multiple ways.
Your body absorbs and uses CBDa up to 11 times more effective than CBD. And according to research on nausea, anxiety, pain, inflammation, and seizures, CBDa may be significantly more potent than CBD. It’s also more effective than CBD at activating certain mood-stabilizing pathways.
