CBD 101: Hemp Based Products VS Marijuana

Here at Cannasol Labs, where NanoSoluble™ Hemp-based products are made, we think it’s easier to understand the advantages and importance of water-soluble CBD when you understand what CBD is.  

CBD 101

CBD is a hemp-based product. Hemp, like marijuana, is a cannabis plant. Unlike marijuana, hemp-based products do not make you high. As the experts at Phys.org explain it, “Cannabis plants with 0.3 percent or less of THC are hemp. Cannabis plants with more than 0.3 percent THC are marijuana.”

CBD, which stands for cannabidiol, and THC, which stands for tetrahydrocannabinol, are both cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are active compounds in the cannabis plant. 

“Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and causes the sensation of getting ‘high’ that’s often associated with marijuana. However, unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive,” Healthline reports.

Now, it just so happens that our bodies have something called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This system is made up of the endocannabinoids our bodies produce, the endocannabinoid receptors in our brains that put them to work and the enzymes that break them down once they’ve done their job. There are two endocannabinoid receptors: 

  • CB1 is located in the brain and linked to things like sleep, mood, memory, appetite and cognition.
  • CB2 is part of the immune system and is linked with pain and inflammation.

 

Our bodies are able to absorb cannabinoids like CBD as well as the endocannabinoids we produce naturally. CBD with water solubility characteristics is much more bioavailable than CBD tinctures made with oil. That means your body can more easily absorb the water soluble hemp
