Hemp FAQ

What Is Hemp Oil?

Hemp oil is a nutritious oil extracted from hemp seeds using the same methods being used to make other food-grade oils, such as olive oil. This oil is a superfood but does not contain any cannabinoids (like CBD).

I Have Heard That CBD Is The Dominant Cannabinoid In Hemp Plants. Can I Just Smoke Or Ingest Hemp To Get The Healing Effects Of CBD?

There are many different delivery methods to get the healing effects of CBD.

Tinctures taken sublingually (30-60 seconds) will enter your bloodstream through glands in your mouth, bypassing your gut and liver, where the majority of CBD is obliterated or ushered out like waste. Sublingual products take effect faster than edible products.

Edibles are a great and discreet way to try CBD. You can find a variety of CBD edibles including gummies, truffles, or even mints that do a great job of masking any “weedy” taste. Edibles take up to 2 hours to kick in, and you’ll absorb about 20-30% of the CBD you consume.

Topicals are designed to be applied directly to the skin. You can find CBD-infused lotions, balms, creams, salves, and transdermal patches. Topicals are a great choice when it comes to treating localized pain or skin conditions like eczema. 

Vaping and Smoking. You can smoke high-CBD cannabis flower in a joint, use a vaporizer with a cartridge that contains CBD oil, or even inhale CBD concentrates such as sugar waxes with any vape pen that has a chamber for concentrates. Vaping and smoking allow the CBD to go directly into your bloodstream, so you’ll feel effects faster than with other methods. 

At Kanna, we also have Hemp snuff pouches that are tobacco-free. This is a superior alternative to traditional dip using CBD in a way that is radical, enjoyable, and effective while also being tobacco and nicotine-free. This method increases CBD bio-availability, allowing for quick absorption.

What Is The Difference Between Hemp And Marijuana?

Hemp and marijuana are two different types of cannabis plants. Marijuana contains high levels of THC and low levels of CBD. Hemp contains high levels of CBD and low levels of THC (legally, less than 0.3% concentration.

What Is The Difference Between CBD And Hemp Extract?

CBD extract is extracted from the flowering tops of the hemp plant, which contains the highest concentrations of CBD. This oil contains a full-plant chemical profile - described as Full Spectrum because it contains a (CBD, terpene, etc.) profile that mirrors the hemp plant source. Essentially, marijuana contains high levels of THC and low levels of CBD. Hemp contains high levels of CBD and low levels of THC. CBD does not produce psychoactive effects and is known to reduce the effects of THC. Meanwhile, hemp seed oil comes from the seeds of the Cannabis native plant. The seeds do not contain CBD, but they still have a rich profile of nutrients, fatty acids, and useful bioactive compounds that can also have health benefits. 

Is CBD The Only Cannabinoid In The Hemp Plant?

Hemp and its “cousin” cannabis are mostly known for their main chemicals or cannabinoids: CBD and THC (usually available in the highest concentrations). However, scientists now believe there could be 100 special compounds, known as cannabinoids to be found in the species. Recent interest in hemp-derived ingredients has begun to shift to the “minor” cannabinoids CBG, CBC, and CBN which are the next most common cannabinoids. 

How Should I Use The Included Dropper To Administer The Hemp Oil?

First look at the Hemp Oil or tincture and divide the amount of CBD by the size of the package/bottle to find the concentration. Look for the total amount of CBD on the oil’s package listed in milligrams. Then look for the size of the container, which is usually near the bottom and listed in milliliters. Take the lowest dose of CBD oil recommended by the manufacturer. Figuring out the right dose can take a little trial and error. Gradually increase the amount until you find the dose that’s effective for you. Administer the dropper with the oil under your touch for 60-90 seconds before swallowing it. This allows for maximum absorption. 

How Much CBD Hemp Extract Is In Your Products?

We have a variety of CBD hemp extract products with varying amounts of CBD. Our Kanna tinctures have 2000mg in the bottle. Our Liberty Full Spectrum tincture has 6000 mg pure extract. Viva Green tincture has either 750mg or 300mg. We also have a CBG hemp extract with 1000mg. We also have a CBD isolate that is THC-free with 1000mg of CBD. 

How Should I Decide Which Hemp Extract To Purchase?

First, decide why you want to use CBD. Consider whether or not you want full or broad-spectrum hemp extract. Broad-spectrum does not contain any THC, whereas full spectrum contains a full-plant chemical profile because it contains CBD, terpenes, flavonoids, other cannabinoids, and other plant matter. Full-Spectrum gives you an “Entourage Effect” which means that all compounds in cannabis work together, and when taken in combination, they produce a better effect than when taken alone. If you have a high tolerance to CBD, we suggest choosing an extract with a higher milligram of CBD. 

How Many Servings Are In Each Bottle Of Hemp Extract Oil?

CBD servings sizes can vary. Products vary in size, potency, and suggested serving sizes. The nutrition facts section on the product label should give you the following information: serving size, total servings per container, and CBD per serving. Find the milligrams of CBD per drop by dividing the total drops by the total CBD in the bottle. This number will tell you how many milligrams of CBD is in a serving size.
