What’s the difference?
Hemp has always been a popular ingredient in skin care and even clothing, but the health benefits of ingestion are innumerable and best of all – no prescription is required.
Available in the health food section of many supermarkets, products such as hemp seeds, protein powders and oil has in recent times been touted as the latest health superfood.
Low in calories and high in plant-based Omega-3, ingestible hemp has been legal since 2016.
CBD or cannabidiol is another compound found in cannabis that is not psychoactive. CBD is thought to be responsible for the majority of medical benefits, such as pain, stress and anxiety relief, a reduction of inflammation and the suppression of muscle spasms.
CBD may also help in the treatment of OCD, depression, low blood sugar, seizures, joint damage, glaucoma and many more medical conditions.
THC is most known for its psychoactive side effect, which can produce a sense of euphoria or a ‘high’ in users. It can assist with sleep, suppress muscle spasms, alleviate pain and reduce nausea.
It is important to discuss your needs closely with your doctor to ensure you receive the correct dosage and cannabis strain and strength.
