HEM is not a brand new extract, but it has just recently started being marketed as the latest and greatest thing on the market when it comes to natural supplements. So what is hemp flower and why is it so special? Hemp is one of many cannabis species that produces highly concentrated forms of plant oil. These plants include: cannabis, hemp, iboga, speciosa, cannabidiol, and others. There are currently seven approved drugs currently on the market that contain this type of plant oil and only a few other ones do not.
To understand HEM, you first have to understand how HEM works in relation to the cannabis plant. Hemp flower is essentially a diet supplement version of THC (THC is another name for phytocannabinoids). What this means by that is that it shares some of the characteristics of phytocannabinoids but is actually a completely different species of plant. It firstly produce high CBD (Cannabidiol) and low THC (Tetrahydrocannabilielic Acid) contents.
Once harvested from the hemp flower, the flowers are cooked and the CBD and THC are separated from the other components. The resulting product is then considered the highest grade and most beneficial. This diet supplement has been tested in clinical trials to help reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and also helps relieve muscle spasms caused by nerve injuries. It has been shown to be effective in helping arthritis patients manage their pain more effectively. For medical uses, this type of strain is considered a “ixie,” which is a slang term for a concentrated, high-c CBD.
