The Era of Legal Top Shelf Cannabis and CBD Distillate

The overturning of draconian marijuana laws in the last decade is one of the great criminal justice stories of the 21st century. While the legal journey still has more progress ahead – including, hopefully, the commutation of all marijuana-related prison sentences – activists, advocates, patients, and entrepreneurs can all rejoice in this new era of decriminalized top-shelf cannabis and hemp use. 

This triumphant victory in the War on Drugs has spawned a vibrant, competitive industry of products, including CBD distillate. The cannabinoid CBD, which many view as one of the driving forces in the legalization movement, is widely believed to offer medical and therapeutic support for a variety of health complications ranging from glaucoma and arthritis to anxiety and depression.

There’s a lot of talk about CBD these days but it’s important to understand what it is and what it is not. It’s also important to administer your CBD doses in the most effective way. Read on for more information on CBD distillate oil and why you should buy CBD hemp full-spectrum distillate online.

What Is CBD Distillate?

There are approximately 108 cannabinoids in marijuana. One of these is CBD (cannabidiol), a once virtually unknown cannabinoid that has seen a surge of demand in recent years. Unlike the more popular THC (Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD contains no psychoactive agents. It interacts with the body’s own naturally occurring molecules and, scientists believe, generates fresh endocannabinoid receptors that help ease physiological symptoms like pain, anxiety, depression, and inflammation. 

The human body’s endocannabinoid system was only fairly recently discovered in the 1990s. Operating similarly to neurotransmitters, researchers believe the body’s natural endocannabinoids regulate a wide array of bodily functions, ranging from sleep, mood, and appetite to memory, reproduction, and fertility. CBD crosses paths with these endocannabinoids at the brain’s CB1 and CB2 receptors, as well as in the nervous system, liver, thyroid, uterus, and other critical bodily systems. 

Needless to say, the medicinal and therapeutic potential of CBD is vast and still relatively unexplored, which is why the market for it has grown exponentially in the last few years, reaching over $5 billion in 2019. 

The most promising delivery system for this cannabinoid is known as CBD distillate. CBD distillate is cannabis oil that has been refined and processed into a specific arrangement of compounds, terpenes, vitamins, and fatty acids. 

The extraction method for CBD is different from THC concentrate (such as wax), which uses solvents like butane or alcohol. CBD distillate uses a cleaner extraction method known as pressure or rinsing extraction, which allows for the careful cultivation of specific cannabinoids. This clean refinement process leads to CBD distillate with 80-90 percent pure CBD and 10-20 percent hemp plant compounds. 

When consumed sublingually, your capillary-rich cheek and under-tongue area rapidly absorbs the CBD distillate. Research suggests this is by far the most healthy and beneficial form of CBD administration.

Can You Buy CBD Hemp Full Spectrum Distillate Online?

In addition to CBD distillate, there is full-spectrum distillate, which contains a more broad assortment of the hemp’s natural compounds, including not just cannabinoids and terpenes but also flavonoids, plant wax and native chemicals found naturally in hemp plants. Terpenes are organic compounds found in marijuana; they produce the plant’s distinctive aromas and are believed to add to its health advantages. 

Researchers think full-spectrum CBD distillate efficacy is buoyed by something called the “entourage effect.” This concept suggests that the effects of CBD increase when it is administered with a broader range of cannabis compounds. For example, full-spectrum CBD distillate, unlike regular CBD distillate, contains small amounts of THC. In such proportions, the THC doesn’t create a psychoactive “high” but likely renders the CBD more potent. 

Full spectrum may also include CBN (cannabinol), which for many people is similar to CBD in providing anti-inflammatory relief from the pain of conditions like arthritis. CBN has also been used for anxiety and may even function as an antibacterial agent and a neuroprotectant.

Other cannabinoids that may be found when you buy CBD hemp full-spectrum distillate online include:

~Cannabigerol (CBG), which, like CBD and CBD is not a psychoactive agent but has been shown in studies to decrease pain, depression, and anxiety.

~Cannabichromene (CBC), which researchers believe acts as an antiviral, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-proliferative agent.

Unlike regular CBD distillate, full spectrum distillate products can be dabbed, smoked, or cooked. CBD distillate oil can be sprinkled on food but should not be heated. A specific sequence of heating and cooling already went into its extraction and refinement. 

Due to the recent socio-political sea change in marijuana and hemp laws, you can now buy CBD hemp full spectrum distillate online and explore for yourself the therapeutic effects of natural cannabinoids.

As of 2020, eleven states have completely legalized marijuana and over half the country’s states have solid medical marijuana programs in place. In 2018, hemp (including hemp-derived compounds like CBD) was federally legalized through the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018. Considering cannabis was previously classified as a Schedule I drug in the same category as heroin, the recent progress is incredible. 

Though hemp and cannabis is federally legal, individual states can pass their own laws affecting local jurisdictions. But there seems to be a clear trend toward decriminalization that is likely to continue spreading through state legislatures. 

Meanwhile, Higher Hemp will continue to provide top-notch CBD products and top shelf cannabis.

An Israeli Hospital Is Testing a CBD Treatment for Coronavirus Patients

CBD for Coronavirus

CBD for Coronavirus? An Israeli investigation at Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv will look at the effect of cannabis compound CBD on Coronavirus (COVID-19) patients, according to Jewish Press.

The new examination is exploring whether one of the dynamic substances in cannabis, cannabidiol (CBD), can hinder the inflammation process that comes with the weakening condition of severe COVID-19 patients and reduce the side effects of the infection.

The examination is being led in a joint effort with some of the wards in the clinic and is expected to include many moderately sick patients.

Dr. Barak Cohen, a senior anesthesiologist and leader of Coronavirus management at Ichilov and the examination’s initiators, said that “this is a novel approach to treating some of the symptoms, using a component of the cannabis plant that is considered safe and non-addictive.”

The CBD for Coronavirus trial is being led by the clinic and is not currently affiliated with any company.

Cannabidiol (CBD), which represents up to 40% of the hemp plant’s concentrate, has been examined for the treatment of anxiety, mental health, movement issues, and pain.

The CBD drug Epidiolex was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2018 for the treatment of two epilepsy disorders.

Meanwhile, CBD has become a budding alternative health industry across the U.S. and beyond.

Press Release: San Diego’s Higher Hemp CBD Company Leading Transition to Hemp Plastic

San Diego, CAHigher Hemp is a CBD dispensary that sells hemp-derived CBD products online nationwide and also offers free same-day delivery in San Diego county. They use hemp plastic packaging for many of their products including CBD flower, CBD joints and blunts, and CBD vape cartridges. Higher Hemp also uses sustainable packaging for their CBD oil and other products

What makes Higher Hemp different from other CBD companies?

Co-founder Andrae Aldrete: “We place a lot of focus on convenience, transparency, and sustainability. Higher Hemp provides 3rd-party lab testing alongside all of the products we sell. We started out using hemp plastic for all of the products we possibly could, and we’re always looking for methods of operating where we can replace traditionally wasteful products and practices with those that are more responsibly and sustainably sourced. We seek to make CBD accessible and affordable to the masses while continuously reducing our carbon footprint by using plant-based, minimal packaging. Even the shrink wrap we use in the final sealing and packaging of our products is made from biodegradable bioplastic. We’re ok with sacrificing some aesthetic properties to prove there’s a way of doing business that’s better for our customers and the planet.”

Why does Higher Hemp use hemp plastic instead of regular plastic?

“One of the things that was non-negotiable from the start was that we weren’t going to go the traditional route of using excessive petroleum-based plastic to package our products. Hemp is the new plastic. To us, it’s unacceptable how much packaging of all types goes into even very small products in the cannabis industry and elsewhere. It’s a compounding problem both for our environment and our health when you consider that most of this plastic ends up in our oceans, polluting the food chain at every level. Considering we are selling and promoting products focused on wellness, we should also be focusing on the wellness of the planet as the health of both are correlated. 

“Luckily, when we were starting out last year, we quickly found that there were already sustainable non-plastic solutions readily available. It’s a way of doing business that we believe is simply the right thing to do. The use of plant-based plastics will be the norm in the coming years and we’re happy to be one of the companies leading the way and hopefully we’ll influence others to do the same.”
