DISCOVER NATURE'S WELLNESS

There’s enough information swirling around the internet concerning hemp and CBD oils that it could fill a million blogs — and it does! Since hemp extracted CBD is an industry of such high interest and discussion, it can be difficult to decipher what is fact and what is fiction today.

We created our Learning Center at Agrozen Life Sciences to clarify the facts from the fiction and to be a source of clear, simple, science-based information. Think of this as a “CBD 101” online source you can share and return to, again and again.

Why Hemp?

Hemp is a staple crop that has been cultivated throughout the country and around the world for over a millennia. It is an extremely versatile plant that is capable of growing in almost any climate and is used in the production of foods, clothing, oils, medicines, and a whole lot more. Humans have been administering and consuming hemp-based products and materials since the neolithic era until roughly the last century, when it was outlawed as part of the laws developed during the cannabis prohibition due to its association with the plant.

Hemp Extracted CBD vs. Cannabis Extracted CBD

Hemp and cannabis may originate from the same species of plant, but they have a few prominent differences. What makes hemp unique from its psychoactive cousin, cannabis, is that hemp is cultivated to have high CBD content and little to no THC content (less than 0.3 percent), the chemical compound found abundantly in cannabis that gives the ‘high’ effects.

Compared to cannabis-extracted CBD, hemp serves an excellent source of full-spectrum cannabinoids in their ancient, balanced state: high CBD / low THC. It is also legal to purchase hemp extracted CBD oil products nationwide, unlike cannabis, which is only legal in the respective states that have legalized recreational marijuana.

What is CBD?

See our glossary of terms to know for more information. 

 

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid, an active biological compound present naturally within the human body and more recently discovered to also be present within the hemp plant. While there are nearly 100 different cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, CBD is one of the most abundant. CBD one of the most amazing superfoods in and of itself is non-psychoactive, meaning you won’t ever feel “high” from it as you would with its cannabis counterpart.

Scientists first discovered CBD (and THC) in the 1930s, and to this day are still learning exactly how plant-based cannabinoids work in the human body. After years of prohibition, there is a lot of promising clinical research being conducted on cannabinoids, including CBD, but here is what we know so far about how they work.

Centuries ago, when people needed medical treatment for various ailments, they utilized oils and chemicals derived from plants. That was the way of things until technology gave us the ability to mass-produce synthetic medication. While that seemed like the ideal way to handle health issues, it became common for these synthetics to cause a number of side effects.


At Agrozen Life Sciences, we think returning to nature is a wise move. That’s why we’re pleased to be a trusted manufacturer and supplier of CBD oil products within the CBD industry. While the CBD compound is often associated with marijuana, it cannot create a high. That’s caused by the THC in marijuana, a totally separate natural chemical.

Hemp And The Body

CB receptors, their functions, and you.

 

When the endocannabinoid system was discovered, so were endocannabinoids — that is, cannabinoids that your body produces, naturally, for itself. The endocannabinoid system functions via two primary cannabinoid receptor types found on your body’s cells: CB1 and CB2.

CO2 Extraction

To extract our CBD-rich oils from the hemp plant, we use supercritical CO2 extraction. The extraction process involves bringing CO2 to a low temperature under high pressure, which gives it properties of a liquid and a gas. This complex process extracts whole plant compounds without the use of harsh chemical solvents. The CO2 extraction process ensures superior quality and keeps the integrity of the plant intact.
