After several changes regarding legalization within the U.S. and Canada, the industry for cannabis and its byproducts is growing rapidly. Despite this growth, there’s still a lack of education and research surrounding the different products and their potential uses for health, wellness, beauty, and more.
Thanks to its versatility and the interest in its primary component (i.e., CBD), the hemp extract market is booming. With that added attention, however, come questions about the two most common extracts: full-spectrum and broad-spectrum.
For example, how do full-spectrum and broad-spectrum extracts differ? And what makes one option more preferable than the other? Before deciding which to include in your products, let’s try to answer these questions.
There’s been some confusion recently about the difference between THC and CBD. Let’s clear that up. While both substances come from the same plant, there are some important differentiators to keep in mind.
The extraction process is a crucial step in ensuring the quality of a variety of cannabis-derived offerings, such as cannabis oils and hemp extract with CBD. The methods businesses choose can have a substantial impact not only on what they produce but also on the efficiency and sustainability of the process.
There might not be a product on the market today that’s more talked about than cannabidiol, or CBD. Depending on who you ask, hemp extract with CBD is either a miracle cure for a wide variety of ailments, or it’s this generation's snake oil.
Before partnering with any hemp extractor, it’s important to take a step back and examine its processes and ingredients critically.
After all, you’ll want to partner with a brand that is transparent about where its ingredients come from, whether those ingredients are produced sustainably, etc. The best way to determine this? Look at traceability, which allows you to assess quality control by tracing a product back to its source.
When you hear the term “sommelier,” you probably think of someone in a fancy suit, swirling and sipping a glass of fine wine. While that might be what a wine sommelier usually does, a new trend has been growing — that of the cannabis sommelier.
Canada marks one year of legalized cannabis
This time last year, Canada became the second country in the world to legalize recreational cannabis. While the industry has had a few missteps; supply shortages and lagging store openings due to licensing approval delays, cannabis has emerged as a massive growth driver, contributing more than $8.26 billion to Canada’s economy and adding 9,200 jobs. And we anticipate continued growth for the industry as consumers demand natural and effective plant-based products.
I’ve now been with Neptune Wellness a little more than two months, and in this time, I’ve become more convinced that we are on the edge of a plant-based transformation. Changing consumer preferences, the rapid acceptance of cannabis and a desire for natural products that actually work is going to drive demand for not only cannabis, but all manner of alternative products.
