Questions About Hemp

Full Spectrum refers to a range of beneficial cannabinoids (such as CBD, CBC, CBG, CBN etc), terpenes and phytonutrients that occur naturally in a hemp plant. We believe and research shows that these compounds work synergistically together to create much better results than using a CBD isolate. Check out our blog about the difference between full spectrum and CBD isolate.

The primary difference between hemp oil  and CBD oil is where the oil itself is derived from the hemp plant. Hemp Oil is derived from the seeds of the hemp plant only. CBD Oil is derived from the stalk, stems, leaves or flowers of industrial hemp plants.

One of the questions that often comes up is, what is the difference between cannabis, industrial hemp and marijuana? Think of it this way. Cannabis Sativa L is the family. Then under that family there are two groupings.

CBD oil is derived from the stalk, stems, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant. The only part of the hemp plant that doesn’t contain CBD oil is hemp seed. Read more about the difference between CBD Oil and Hemp Oil.

Cannabinoids are part of a class of diverse chemical compounds that act on receptors in the human endocannabinoid system (ECS). Unlike THC, CBD and other cannabinoids are non-psychoactive.

Hemp and marijuana are species from the Cannabis Sativa L plant. There is no difference between CBD that is extracted from the two. CBD is CBD whether it comes from hemp or marijuana.

Product Information

Our products contain less than .3% THC, which is a very small amount, however, because of the fat-soluble nature of THC and other cannabinoids found in hemp oil, accumulation and excretion of hemp oil byproducts can result in a positive drug test. If you are concerned with passing a drug test, we do not recommend using any of our products. Check out our blog about cbd showing up on a drug test.

All of our products have similar formulations, the main difference is in the strengths per bottle. Any of our products will provide you with the beneficial cannabinoids and other phytonutrients it needs to support your overall health and wellness. If you are new to Ananda Hemp and/or CBD products, we typically suggest starting with our Spectrum 300. This product contains 300mg of active cannabinoids in a 30ml bottle, which is our lowest strength. Spectrum 300 is a great introductory product and is intended for general health and wellness. If you have already tried our products, regularly consume CBD products and/or have a generally active lifestyle, we recommend starting with our Spectrum 600. This product contains 600mg of active cannabinoids in a 30ml bottle. If you are looking for the largest bottle and strongest strength, we recommend our Spectrum 2000. This product contains 2000mg of active cannabinoids per 50ml bottle.

Our original Spectrum 600 is a full spectrum product, meaning it contains all of the beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes and other phyto-nutrients that naturally occur in the hemp plant. It contains 600mg of active cannabinoids per bottle, including THC. 

We created our Zero THC Spectrum 600 for those with sensitivities to THC. This product is considered a broad spectrum product since it contains all of the cannabinoids, terpenes and other phytonutrients from the hemp plant, without the THC. 

We do always recommend our original Spectrum 600 unless you have a sensitivity to THC as we believe, and research shows that even a small amount of THC in the product will work synergistically with the other plant compounds to produce better effects.

Our products have less than .3% THC which is considered legal hemp. This amount of THC is not enough to be psychoactive. You will not get high from our products.

Depending on the severity of symptoms, some people report improved conditions within 30-45 minutes whereas others may report improved conditions after a week with daily, consistent use.

It may take a few days to a week to get the dosage right.
