What is Hemp Extract?

What if we told you there was a little-known substance that could help you live a healthier, more balanced life? Meet hemp extract. It’s a safe, legal alternative to traditional methods for relieving pain, anxiety, nausea, and many other conditions. Enliven Essentials is here to provide you with high-quality and effective hemp extract at an affordable price. From pain cream to dog snacks, we have products to help you live your best life. First things first, though: what is hemp extract?

What is Hemp Extract?

Hemp extract is a natural substance found in hemp. It contains high levels of cannabidiol (CBD), which is a safe and legal supplement that has been proven to have a positive impact on human health, most prominently in cases of severe epilepsy. It has properties that can help relieve anxiety, inflammation, nausea, and more. You can find thousands of testaments online to its effectiveness in treating a range of problems, from sleep issues to chronic pain. If our hemp extract products have helped you, please help spread the word and add your testimonial!

What Hemp Extract Is Not

Hemp extract is NOT marijuana. It is made from cannabis plants, but not the kind that end up in dispensaries. Hemp is a specific species that is used in many different ways, from rope and paper to the hemp seed oil you can find in grocery and wellness stores.

Will It Give Me A High?

No. The hemp plants we use have high concentrations of cannabidiol, the healthy and beneficial substance we mentioned previously, and low concentrations of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Cannabidiol has been scientifically proven to have no psychoactive effect. The plants bred for medicinal or recreational purposes are typically bred for the opposite results – high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol and low levels of cannabidiol – because the concentration is on creating that “high”. Those plant species are NOT used in our hemp extract products.

Who Can Use It?

Everyone. Yes, we mean it. Studies show that hemp extract oil is most likely safe for children and even pets to consume, but you don’t have to take our word for it. There have been several studies about the safety and side effects of hemp extract. We encourage you to do your own research!

What is Full-Spectrum Hemp Extract?

Pure hemp oil with all of the cannabinoids, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that were in the original hemp plant. Here at Enliven Essentials we choose hemp extract oil from high-CBD, low-THC plants because we prize their non-psychoactive healing properties. We don’t want you to miss out on any of the other beneficial components of the hemp plant, however, which is why we use full-spectrum hemp extract. Cannabidiol is one of many cannabinoids contained in the hemp plant and using full-spectrum oil allows all of those cannabinoids to work together in what is known as the “entourage effect.” Continue reading to learn more about how cannabinoids interact with your body and check out all the ongoing research into the benefits of hemp extract.

How Does It Work?

Hemp extract boosts your endocannabinoid (ECS) system. It’s a system found in every mammal, with dedicated receptors for cannabinoids and enzymes designed to break them down. You probably didn’t learn about it in high school biology, but you can look it up for yourself! It operates much like the dedicated receptors in your brain for dopamine or serotonin. Your endocannabinoid system helps manage the cannabinoids created naturally by your body, as well as supplemental ones like the cannabidiol found in our products. It is associated with appetite, mood, pain sensation, and more. Have you heard of a “runner’s high”? That’s a cognitive effect associated with the endocannabinoid system!

How Fast Does Hemp Extract Work?

Hemp extract can take effect between a few minutes and a couple hours. The efficacy and speed of your hemp extract product depend on many factors, including:

  • The symptom you are trying to treat
  • The concentration of hemp extract in your product of choice
  • Your method of application or ingestion
  • Your chosen dosage

If you want to feel the effects as soon as possible, try vaping. Applying hemp extract oil sublingually (under your tongue) is also a fast-acting option. The efficacy of edibles like Enliven’s chocolate depends on what else you’ve consumed that day and pain creams applied topically (rubbed into your skin) may have more of a delay, but can last for hours. To learn more about all the available options for hemp extract treatments, visit our how to use CBD page, and remember to start with a low dose when trying hemp extract products for the first time. You should also talk to your doctor or healthcare professional about the right concentration and dosage for you.

We’ve only scratched the surface of hemp extract and its amazing benefits, but hopefully we have answered your biggest questions. You can check out our page on the benefits of hemp extract to learn more about how hemp extract aids in natural pain relief, reduced anxiety, and more.

In compliance with FDA standards, Enliven makes no medical claims. We are not doctors or physicians. There is a large amount of scientific research on hemp extract and the ECS system from doctors across the world that has existed for decades. We encourage you to do your own research and talk to your physician or health and wellness practitioner about hemp extract. There are many sources online that can provide more information, but please remember that the Internet contains both valid and misleading information. We encourage you to vet your sources and make sure they are reputable.
