A Beginner's Guide to Hemp Oil, the Cannabis Product That's Legal Right Now

Categories: Around Town

With medical marijuana on everyone's lips (in more ways than one), people are buzzing about weed, hemp, cannabis, THC, CBD, and all kinds of other related terms that you might or might not understand. It's OK -- this is confusing stuff.

Leave it to Cultist to offer a little clarity about one such topic you're probably hearing a lot about: hemp oil. From "cannamoms" to Whole Foods salespeople, lots of folks are touting the benefits of this product. But what is it, exactly, and what does it do?

So what is this stuff?
Let's start with what hemp oil is not. It is not marijuana. It does not get people high. Both originate from the same plant, but marijuana is cultivated for the buds (which have to be carefully raised for that specific purpose). They're also grown differently.

The oil has only trace amounts of THC, the psychotropic component in weed. Instead, it has higher concentrations of cannabidiol, or CBD, which is the medicinal boon people are all atwitter over.

"You'll see two kinds -- hemp oil drawn from the plant and hemp oil drawn from the seeds. Ours is drawn from the mature stalks of the hemp plant," says Andrew Hard, director of public relations for HempMeds, a California company whose hemp oil products are sold all over the world. The stalk and seeds don't fall under the definition of what the U.S. government dubs marijuana, he says; that's why the products are legal in all 50 states.

Aw, man. So it won't get me stoned?
Sorry, man. Let's put it this way: The medical marijuana bill that recently passed the Florida House would allow patients with cancer and conditions that result in chronic seizures or severe muscle spasms to use marijuana pills, oils, or vapors that contain 0.8 percent THC or lower and 10 percent CBD or higher. Right now, those things are illegal.

HempMeds' Real Scientific Hemp Oil (RSHO), as a comparison, has 15.5 to 25 percent CBD by volume but only trace amounts of THC.

My Wife was diagnosed with Breast cancer with metastases with bone/liver/ovary involvement, after so many Chemo and Radiation. I came across Rick Simpson through several testimonies of his Cannabis oil and I was able to contact him at: ricksimson_oil@qq.com, but the cannabis oil from Rick Simpson and I have been using Cannabis Oil to treat my wife cancerous diseases for the past 5 months. It’s been about 4 months since She stopped using it. All of the positive effects are still there. My wife is now healthy with no cancer in her body system anymore. Essentially her body feels like a 20 years old girl,while in reality she is 41 years old. Within 5 months of being on the oil She started to loose pounds, her metabolism is super fast. She can eat burgers at fast food joints and still loose weight. She sleep through the night, her digestive system works better than it ever has. she have NO back pain whatsoever. Even after being off the meds this long. This stuff is simply amazing. For help email: ricksimson_oil@qq.com,she is no longer a victim of cancer and I would love every other cancer patient at there to contact Rick Simpson for help via: ricksimson_oil@qq.com she do not have cancer anymore, but she still use her follow up medication for other cleansing of the body system. she started to use the oil to find its other benefits. Rick Simpson told us about how he believes the oil can reverse aging. I’m hoping it will slow it down or stop it completely. Not sure what to expect after prolonged use. I will update you guys to my findings of Rick Simpson HEMP OIL. Am using this medium to let you know that  Rick Simpson HEMP OIL Oil will guarantee the total eradication of all types of cancers and other diseases as well. for help email: ricksimson_oil@qq.com

This is a very well-researched and well-written piece, it's true, this company sells legal, valuable Hemp Oil in all 50 states, including Florida -- and it's also very true that the stalks and seeds do not meet the governor's or state's definition of MJ

Bullshit the stalks and seeds don't fall under the definition of what the Gov calls MJ ? That's why they weight the pot , the dirt , the sticks , the leaves , it adds to their Egos as well as makes it seem a bigger bust than it actually was .The Feds held Kentuckys' Hemp seeds , the one you don't smoke , for over a month , I think you need to do a little more research !

@Illwilled19 The Feds were sued by Kentucky's agriculture department for holding the seeds, and Kentucky won. The federal government doesn't always "interpret" the law as it's truly written, people just need to have the guts to fight them appropriately. Here's a look at info about hemp laws: http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/RL32725.pdf (Page 13) 


In the definition of marijuana it says "...Such term does not include the mature stalks of such plant, fiber produced from such stalks, oil or cake made from the seeds of such plant, any other compound."


Of course there's more to it than that, I'm sure. I'm learning still. THC content has to be less than something like 1%.
