What are isomers?
Isomers are when two or more compounds with the same formula have different arrangement of atoms. Delta-8 for example is a THC isomer.
It has the same chemical structure as Delta-9 THC except that the double-bond located between the 8th & 9th carbon atoms. The D9’s double bond is located between the 9th & 10th carbons.
I know it’s a bit confusing as the hemp industry isn’t always so simple. But you have to love it when experts with molecular geometry experience is more advanced then the DEA’s overreach department. (pun intended).
It’s the recipes that make the difference
The USDA legalized all Hemp derivatives including cannabinoids and thc isomers. The controlled substance act’s broken schedule system can’t prevent the plethora of positive cannabis studies and human anecdotal reports.
These studies and anecdotal reports all suggest one thing. That the synergistic effects of cannabinoids can, when combined together, create a full spectrum entourage therapeutic experience. Head formulators at CBD companies like Priceland Hemp are creating unique cannabinoid recipes. They are blending CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC, THCv, CBDv, THC-9 and THC-8.
It’s the effectiveness of these propriety formulations that provide a consistence positive therapeutic outcome. Experienced formulators create secret recipes of cannabinoids and terpenes. These combinations of cannabinoids towards unique effects with these formulas is geared in a certain direction.
How Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil can Help
We now know for example that micro dosing at the government regulated .3 % or less of THC can be spell huge relief for people that struggle with chronic pain and inflammation. Pure CBD alone have had positive effects but they appear to be less desirable that full-spectrum oils.
The hemp market has evolved with advance technologies to capture minors cannabinoids through the synthesis, conversions, clinical studies. We have yet to truly grasp the full potential of this plant called cannabis and it’s full spectrum hemp extracts.
Anyone working in the cannabis industry can witness people’s transformation away from pharmaceutics. People are tired of the opioid epidemic and want 100% natural plant medicine with minimal side effects. The array to issue cannabis helps are:
- treating Crohn’s
- preventing anxiety
- lowering blood sugar
- healing PTSD
- recovery from opiates
- healing brain injuries
- lowering blood sugar
- curbing anger
- reversing depression
- stopping psychosis
- helping you sleep
- relieving menstrual cramps
- reducing inflammation
And the list goes on.
How can cannabis accomplish so much?
The greatness of such a remarkable plant is proving its value in the scientific clinical studies. The interest is in preventing oxidation of the neutrons in neurological disorders, including epilepsy.
In as early as 1980, scientists in Brazil administered epileptic patients and healthy volunteers with CBD. The results: 4 of the 8 patients reduced 100% of their convulsive crises associated with seizures. Three others had improvements in symptoms and one had no change. There was no toxicity or serious side effects connected with the CBD being administered.
The discovered potential use of CBD as an anti-epileptic remedy was exciting and hopeful news for patients. This is because most had little to no response from pharmaceutical drugs.
Regarding cancer, CBD’s anti-proliferation of cancer cells has researchers ready to work with cannabinoid. This is because the success rate is much higher then Chemotherapy. Chemotherapy averages of patient recover is only a 16-67% chance depending on stage, grade, region, and overall health.
Roadblocks to legalization
Cannabis for thousand’s of years has been used for medicinal purposes. It makes no sense for the DEA and the FDA to continue with restrictions. Such prohibition by federal law is a violation of the people’s constitutional rights.
These rights were established in the 1st, 5th, 9th, 10th, and 14th amendments. These amendments focus on the fundamental rights. The right to travel, To engage in commerce, and to the reasonable right to equal protection under federal law.
The DEA schedule one status of label’s cannabis as a drug with a high potential for abuse. That it has no currently accepted medical treatment use. We know this isn’t true, not even close because we know that Cannabis has never killed anyone, ever.
The fallacies of outdate policies are creating a swarm of controversial issues surrounding the legalization delta 9 THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol. The flood gates have opened with 15 states legalizing full recreational marijuana and medical programs. 44 states in all have some kind of a CBD or marijuana medical program.
The DEA has no jurisdiction over hemp derived Delta 8 THC, Delta 10 THC or any other isomers deriving from hemp. The federal governments attempt to thwart the hemp’s industry to provide relief for the ailing and sick is mind boggling.
The sinister reasons for marijuana prohibition
It makes you wonder why the hemp industry was under prohibition. As you dig deeper into the rabbit hole the picture becomes clearer. You begin to see the sinister reasons why this harmless plant garnered the attention of industry powerhouses at the highest levels.
Henry J. Anslinger was the former commissioner of the U.S. Treasury of Federal Bureau of Narcotics. Mr Anslinger played the role in implementing federal legislation prohibiting the sale, possession, cultivation and consumption of cannabis.
The story reads that Hearst, Du Pont, and Aslinger all played a role to eliminate hemp’s value. They didn’t want to compete against land value in the pulp industry or the synthetic petrochemicals made by Du Pont.
Hearst owned the newspapers that indoctrinated people with racist propaganda about marijuana. He would spread horrible stories of rape and murder by Negroes, Mexicans, and Orientals. He would print that these minorities were all under the influence of the “terrible” marijuana.
The rhetoric surrounding the 1930’s anti-marijuana policies led to decades of systemic racism. Police were enforcing these policies that disproportionately affected people of black and brown color. It basically institutionalized these groups, while building an oversized prison industry.
Wrongs are being righted
Thanks to the sharing ability of the internet, people are now slowing learning the truth about cannabis. As a result wrongs are slowly be righted. Like a large turning ship, little by little state governments are reversing the damage done. Eventually the Anslinger prohibition of the cannabis plant will come to an end.
Even though there is a landslide of evidence in cannabis’s favor. It is still a hard sell to some of the old fashioned law makers stuck in their ways. They continue to ignore that sometimes natural remedies are better than synthetic substances with huge side effects and sometimes, even death.
Formulators are creating safe, effective full-spectrum and THC isomer products that help people manage symptoms of disease. Products continue to improve and scientists continue to uncover more medicinal uses.
Cannabis legal or not isn’t going away. In fact I’d venture to say it’s just getting started.
