Cannabinoids & Hemp. What’s the difference?
Posted in Learn

By now you may have heard of cannabinoids, one of the hottest new trends in healthcare and beyond, and there’s a good chance you have questions. Will this make me feel high? Are cannabinoids the same as hemp? Are they both the same as marijuana? We’ve got all the insights you need to help you decide which supplements and products are right for you. 

What are cannabinoids? What is hemp? What makes them different from Marijuana?

More than 113 cannabinoids that are naturally found in the cannabis plant. Hemp, while being a member of the cannabis family, is completely different than the other well-known member, marijuana. Hemp contains only trace amounts of THC, the component that causes the intoxicating effects most commonly associated with marijuana.

The relationship between cannabinoids and hemp is not unlike the relationship shared between iron and spinach; while iron is a big part of spinach, it is only one of a multitude of its components. Cannabinoids are only a part of what makes hemp a well-rounded, multi-benefit product.

When I take a hemp supplement like Uleva, am I also getting the benefits of cannabinoids?

Yes! Cannabinoids help support our endocannabinoid system, which is a network of receptors we are born with – closely tied with supporting homeostasis.*
