Hempulse CBD for Christmas
As the holiday season quickly approaches, so does the need for giving and gifting. Although we are in a very socially distanced and lockdown-potential rollercoaster as we continue to fight through this COVID-19 pandemic, individuals are trying to keep things merry and bright, with the holidays as an optimistic sight.
With family gatherings most likely being united via phone, webcam, or FaceTime this year, the desire for thoughtful gifts and cards may go even further than expected. With all the anxiety and worrisome fears of the status of the world and what’s to come, CBD may be the next best thing to add to your gift idea list, for just about everyone in the family.
In today’s article, we’ll talk about the ins and outs of CBD, the potential benefits that your family members may thoroughly enjoy, as well as which Hempulse CBD products may fit best as your ideal CBD Christmas gift surprise.
Let’s get to being holly and jolly!
What is CBD?
First things first, let’s get into the nitty-gritty of cannabis, more specifically CBD.
Before you even begin to think about getting your mom or dad or aunt or uncle CBD for Christmas, I’m sure you’re wanting to make sure you know exactly what it is beforehand, since you’ll most likely have to explain it to them.
Well, CBD is the medical short term for cannabidiol - a compound that is derived from the cannabis plant. At first, you probably think this is “weed” because it comes from the cannabis plant, right?
One of the many special properties of CBD is that it is non-psychoactive, meaning, it won’t get you “high” or “stoned”. Even though it does come from the cannabis plant, CBD products and oils go through many extraction and distillation processes to rid the oil of any tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound in cannabis that causes a “high” in users.
Again, unlike THC, CBD won’t get you high or cause any mind-altering effects. This makes it safe for humans and animals to consume CBD, without the worry of being “high” or experiencing potential psychoactive side effects.
How Does CBD Work?
So if CBD comes from the cannabis plant, just like THC, how in the world does it not get users “high”? This is a commonly asked question and it is totally a valid one!
THC and CBD bind differently to different receptors in our body. Each and every one of us has what scientists call an endocannabinoid system in our bodies. This system works just like our other major organ systems, including our immune and cardiovascular systems. Although you probably didn’t even know you had an endocannabinoid system until now, it is a powerhouse system keeping our bodies in balance at all times.
Also called the ECS, for short, it works and communicates with other bodily systems through receptors, specifically endocannabinoid receptors. These endocannabinoid receptors communicated with cannabinoid receptors and other neurological receptors throughout the body, to continuously achieve a balanced homeostatic state. CBD works indirectly with these receptors, while THC works directly with these receptors. Hence, one of the reasons users report feeling a “high” when taking THC.
CBD binds indirectly with cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1) and cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2), while THC binds directly to CB1 and CB2. Interesting, right?
Marijuana vs Hemp CBD for Christmas
Now that we’ve given you the lowdown about CBD and how it works within our ECS, let’s get more into the differences between CBD derived from hemp vs marijuana plants.
CBD derived from the marijuana plant is legal only in states where marijuana is medically and or recreationally legal. So before purchasing any old CBD oil online as a gift for Christmas, know if CBD derived from the marijuana plant is legal in your state. Besides the grey and confusing areas of CBD being legal or not where you live, CBD taken from the marijuana plant may have high levels of THC present, anywhere from 0.3% - 25% THC. This could be a major concern for those wanting CBD without any high.
Whilst, on the other hand, CBD taken from the hemp plant is legal across the United States. This is because hemp is legal, due to it’s little to no levels of THC present. For hemp-derived CBD to be legal, it must contain 0.0% - 0.3% THC. This will not be enough THC to exert a “high” in users, making it safe for human and animal consumption.
Most likely if you’re purchasing CBD for a family member or friend for the first time, it’s important to stick with hemp-derived CBD oils and products, as this may be a safer option, without them worrying about the “high”.
Why Should I Purchase Hempulse CBD as Christmas Gifts?
Here at Hempulse, we offer premium, safe, and affordable products made with CBD that’s been extracted from high-quality, industrial hemp grown organically in the USA. Each product is tested for potency and purity to ensure consistency and compliance.
We utilize a solvent-free CO2 extraction process which allows us to efficiently and effectively withdraw CBD from the plant’s raw-material and filter out non-desirable substances, leaving only a high concentration of high-caliber cannabinoids.
Next, we mix the extract with hemp seed oil (the carrier oil). Hemp seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the cannabis sativa plant and is a highly-effective carrier. Carrier oils help deliver CBD and other cannabinoids to the body and they also influence the product’s taste! Our products are entirely plant-based, non-GMO, pesticide-free, gluten-free, and vegan friendly. All products are federally legal and can be shipped to all states within the United States.
We take pride in developing a deep understanding of the cannabis agribusiness paired with extensive knowledge of supply chain management, allowing us to source high-caliber hemp extract at favorable prices – which translates into significant cost savings for the end customer (you) without sacrificing quality.
We have the ability to customize products for our wholesale clients as well as collaborate on an effective retail strategy to achieve repetitive and sustainable revenues while complying with industry regulations.
