That’s when Emerald Cannabliss started forming in my brain. I know cannabis works because I started using it, and many people around me had started using it. I want the best product for myself and my family. Every company has something new to offer. Every plant and every batch is different, so that means every company and every crop will be different. As a mother, wife, and a human I want the best for my body. I do not want to be addicted to anything and I want to feel calm and less anxious, and I don’t want to feel sleepy all the time.
My goal is to better educate you on cannabis, as well as, provide you a market place for awesome products. I fully vet every company I “get in bed” with. I do not want to bring you a crappy product from a crappy company.
What is CBD, Cannabidiol?
Cannabidiol or CBD, is a cannabiniod found in the cannabis plant. CBD doesn’t make you feel “high”. You can find CBD in all forms of cannabis. Scientific research has found that CBD has potential medicinal benefits. The FDA, June of 2018, approved the first medicine containing CBD. Epidiolex is used to treat seizures caused by epilepsy. As research progresses on humans, more will come to light on what CBD can actually help. As of today, the FDA hasn’t released any other guidelines or regulations on CBD. It’s anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory potential is a reason why the spotlight is on this cannabinoid.
What is a cannabinoid?
Cannabinoids are the chemistry part of cannabis. They are active compounds found in the cannabis plant. We think there are more than 60 cannabinoids in cannabis, however we are still learning about this amazing plant. Cannabinoids work with your Endocannabinoid system or ECS in your body.
What is the difference between marijuana and hemp?
First let’s start with Cannabis, which is a flowering plant grown outdoors and indoors. There are three different types of the Cannabis flower – C. Indica, C. Sativa, C. Ruderalis. Each flower produces cannbiniods – chemical compounds including, CBD and THC.
Hemp contains small amounts of THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient that gives the “high” feeling. This strain of cannabis is used to make products like paper, oils, cloth, plastics, and much more. It is comes from cannabis Sativa plants. At one time in the United States, you were required to grow hemp and use that as payment for taxes. However, made illegal in 1937. Hemp is 100% legal with the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill. Emerald Cannabliss only has products derived from hemp.
As of today, Marijuana is legal in 33 states in America, medicinal and/or recreational. However, still considered a schedule 1 drug to the federal government. Marijuana cannabis has higher levels of THC and is from the indica flowers.
Will I fail a drug test?
If you choose a full spectrum CBD oil, trace amounts of THC can be found. This can show up on a drug test. It will depend on your body and how it metabolizes THC. At home THC tests can be done to see if you are positive for THC. Being upfront with your employer is an option. Emerald Cannabliss offers a CBD isolate which would be THC – free or a broad spectrum which contains other cannabinoids like Joy Organics.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
Let’s break down the word to better understand what it means, “cannbiniod” comes from cannabis and “endo” short for “endogenous” which is produced inside your body naturally. So, endocannbiniod means that cannabis like substances can happen naturally inside your body. The Endocannbiniod system controls your body’s mood, psychology, and everyday experiences. We have at least two cannabiniod receptors in our body; CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptor is your central nervous system and CB2 receptor is your nerves in extremities, digestive system, and immune system. Endoannabiniod receptors can be found around your body and are very important. You can check out more on your endocannabinoid system here.
