non psychoactive hemp

The first thing to know about CBD is that it is not psychoactive; it doesn’t get people high. The primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). But THC is only one of the scores of chemicals – known as cannabinoids – produced by the cannabis plant.

Epidiolex was developed by the London-based GW Pharmaceuticals, which grows cannabis on tightly controlled farms in the UK. It embarked on the Epidiolex project in 2013, as anecdotes of CBD’s value as an epilepsy drug began emerging from the US.

So far, CBD is the most promising compound from both a marketing and a medical perspective. Many users believe it helps them relax, despite it not being psychoactive, and some believe regular doses help stave off Alzheimer’s and heart disease.

At age five, Charlotte suffered 300 grand mal seizures a week, and was constantly on the brink of a medical emergency. Through online research, Charlotte’s desperate parents heard of treating Dravet with CBD. It was controversial to pursue medical marijuana for such a young patient, but when they gave Charlotte oil extracted from high-CBD cannabis, her seizures stopped almost completely. In honor of her progress, high-CBD cannabis is sometimes known as Charlotte’s Web.

In early May, a federal court declined to protect cannabidiol (CBD), a chemical produced by the cannabis plant, from federal law enforcement, despite widespread belief in its medical value.

With CBD isolate oils, CBD is the only cannabinoid ingredient. All other hemp components are removed, meaning there are no detectable traces of THC. This form is the favorable option if you are regularly screened for drugs, highly sensitive to THC or you want to avoid the pungent hemp flavor. If you are currently taking full-spectrum products, CBD isolate can be a way to complement your regimen by adding a boost of CBD without increasing the dose of the other cannabinoids. If you’re an entrepreneur, this is the harder sub-space to get into because of the costs that are associated with creating a pure CBD isolate. Unless you have big pockets or a venture team, or a super high-quality product, this will be a tough space for you to compete in. Nevertheless, here are a few examples of standout isolates on the market.

Thanks to legalization, we’re officially in the age of the green rush. Not to be confused with THC though, CBD doesn’t have the pyschoactive components that would make someone “high.” In fact, CBD has been around and used in society since long before your neighborhood entrepreneur decided to create a Shopify store. History has even documented that ancient Native Americans used CBD for all different types of applications, including joint pain.

Charlotte’s Web maintains a close eye on standards in every step of the process with their CBD Isolate Oil. They test the soil where their hemp is grown to be sure there are no toxins before the first seed is planted, and they run lab tests all the way through production. Their final product is suspended in coconut oil and contains 20mg of CBD per serving.

Foria is a company geared toward women’s health. Their CBD Basics Tonic is guaranteed to be made with pure extracts from their organically and sustainably grown hemp plants. They suspend the extract in an oil to maximize absorption and boast rave reviews from women all over the country.

Broad-spectrum CBD is the happy middle for many customers. It contains all of the cannabinoids found in hemp, with the exception of THC. This may still not be the ideal form if you are tested regularly for THC use, but it is a good option if you want to experience the “entourage effect” of your CBD, without the intoxicating effects. This is also a good space to get into as an entrepreneur, as the barrier to entry is much lower. Below are four rising brands in this space.

Verma Farms sells an all-day CBD solution by offering morning (Focus), afternoon (Boost) and night (Chill)-targeting oils. They focus on high quality, starting with their domestically grown, certified-organic, pesticide-free hemp.
