Let Fusion End Your Confusion with Hemp/CBD Oil

By Fusion Pharmacy


Perhaps you or a loved one have been afflicted with one of the ailments or diseases on the list that hemp/CBD oil is touted as helping. This list includes Alzheimer’s disease, anxiety, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Huntington’s disease, hypoxia-ischemia injury, pain, depression, cancer, nausea, inflammatory diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, infection, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, cardiovascular disease, and diabetic complications. Maybe you are searching for natural alternatives to your prescribed medications or even just an enhancement to the medications you’re already taking. Hemp/CBD oil offers promising results. However, finding reliable and legitimate products in the increasingly saturated and misinformed market can be a daunting task and one that often ends with people giving up the search, hurting themselves, or making their conditions worse.


Hemp (CBD) Oil Is Everywhere!

The hemp/CBD oil industry is continually growing and expanding. It seems like every time you take a trip to the store, there is a new product claiming to be infused with CBD oil or hemp in the form of soaps, lotions, candies, cookies, coffee, tinctures, and pills— all marketed to appeal to your different preferences and needs. If you can imagine it, it probably exists. Because of the ever-increasing demand for hemp/CBD oil products, it is quickly becoming a lucrative industry. Unfortunately, this growth brings with it unsavory and potentially illegal manufacturing practices, with misrepresentation, mislabeling, and misconstruing product information being the primary infractions. As a consumer, it is so important that you know the source so that you don’t lose out on the benefits of experiencing what quality hemp/CBD oil can do for you. 

How and Why Hemp (CBD) Oil Is Legal in Utah

On December 20, 2018, President Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill, which allows hemp containing 0.3% THC (the compound that gives marijuana its mind-altering effect) to be legally sold as a dietary supplement. The Farm Bill has given states and the U.S. Department of Agriculture the authority to regulate hemp, which has, in turn, contributed to the rise of the recent trend of seeing hemp/CBD oil infused products on the shelves of local stores. On January 1, 2019, Utah legalized the sale of full-spectrum hemp with the caveats that it be tested by a third-party lab and that it be approved by the Department of Agriculture. Each state is different in how they are regulating hemp and CBD oil products. This leads consumers to be responsible for educating themselves on what exactly hemp/CBD oil is, what full-spectrum hemp is, what the distinct differences are between hemp/CBD oil and marijuana, and what the vetting process of a hemp/CBD oil product manufacturer might look like. With so much information to digest, it’s no wonder consumers are confused. To help navigate the confusion, Fusion Pharmacy only carries hemp/CBD oil products that are registered with the state of Utah and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Hemp/Cbd Oil and Marijuana Are Not the Same

While hemp and marijuana both come from the cannabis species, they are not the same. As we can surmise by the recent Farm Bill, hemp is completely different from marijuana in its function, cultivation, and application. Marijuana contains 5 to 35 percent of THC, thus giving it psychoactive effects while still maintaining medicinal value. As we stated above, hemp contains 0.3 percent or less of THC and has no psychoactive effects. 

Cannabinoids and Your Endocannabinoid System 

Both marijuana and hemp are a source for cannabinoids, although hemp provides higher concentrations and, in some cases, a better blend of cannabinoids. Research shows that cannabinoids deliver health benefits through their interaction with receptors in the human endocannabinoid system and that each cannabinoid offers its own unique health benefit. 

The full collection of cannabinoid forms is called the cannabinoid spectrum, which can then be broken down by extraction of specific cannabinoid combinations called full spectrum, broad spectrum, or CBD isolate. Each of these combinations has its own varying degrees of potency and efficacy, which help to determine the purpose for which the consumer wishes to use hemp/CBD oil. To explain the differences between each cannabinoid combination could take up another article, but suffice it to say that the full spectrum of cannabinoids includes terpenes and essential oils extracted from the plant that work together to enhance the therapeutic benefits of each individual cannabinoid, thus making it the preferred therapeutic hemp/CBD oil choice that offers the highest levels of relief for a multitude of health care concerns.

Know Your Sources! 

We are all becoming more aware and concerned about what we’re putting in our bodies, and this can become more challenging to do with industries where commerce often trumps wellness concerns. When motivated by money, some brands take advantage by cutting corners, using CBD from sources with questionable purity standards or processing their products with little to no regard for any regulatory criteria. It’s hard to know when your hemp/CBD oil products are coming from a sustainable and organic farm that’s not using harsh chemicals for pest control or if they have safeguards in place for their product’s medicinal consistency. That’s where Fusion can help end all the confusion. We have done all the vetting for you!
