What is the difference between hemp CBD and cannabis CBD?

Cannabis and hemp plants contain both CBD and THC along with more than 540 other substances. The main difference between the two plants is the amount of each compound they contain. Cannabis contains more THC, and less CBD. Hemp contains more CBD and less THC. Most importantly, the benefits of CBD do not change whether it is cannabis-derived CBD or hemp-derived CBD. Common side effects, such as an upset stomach, feeling tired, or feeling on edge, remain the same. This is because the chemical make-up of CBD does not depend on which plant it comes from. However, the amount of CBD available for extraction does depend on the source. Hemp plants contain far more CBD, making them the more lucrative option for manufacturers and the option with the least potential legal ramifications. The main difference between hemp CBD and cannabis CBD is their legal status. According to the 2018 Farm Bill, products made from plants that meet the legal standards of hemp are legal across most of the USA, except three states. Products made from plants that have higher levels of THC are not legal under this statute. However, it is important to note that all CBD products must have less than 0.3% THC, so even those made from cannabis-derived CBD should contain less than this amount.

Learn about osteoma

Osteomas are benign bone tumors that typically form on the skull. Depending on where they develop, they can sometimes cause issues, such as headaches or sinus infections. Although osteomas tend to form on the skull, they can also develop on the long bones of the body, such as the shin and thigh bones. Osteomas that occur on the long bones of the body are called osteoid osteomas. According to one 2010 review, doctors do not yet fully understand what causes osteomas. They may be a result of the body reacting to illness or injury. In rare cases, osteoma is associated with Gardner's syndrome. Gardner's syndrome is a rare condition that causes colorectal polyps and different types of benign and malignant tumor. Osteomas do not always require treatment. According to Stanford Medicine, when treatment is necessary for an osteoma on the skull, a doctor can use endoscopic procedures which, in this case, refers to the insertion of specialized instruments through the person's nasal cavity. If the osteoma occurs near the surface of the skin, doctors can often create small incisions in the skin to remove the growth. Large growths may require more invasive techniques, however. One 2017 study points out that a doctor may also recommend percutaneous radiofrequency ablation to treat osteoid osteomas. This technique uses radiofrequency waves to destroy the osteoma and prevent it from growing back
