Can You Get Hemp extract from Other Plants?

By this point, almost everyone in the world has heard of Hemp. This versatile extract has dozens of uses, and it’s very different from its intoxicating cousin. 

Most people still believe, however, that you can only get Hemp extract from only hemp. Vast investment has poured into the hemp industry largely due to this misconception, and consumers believe that they’re stuck with Hemp derived from a crop that can be susceptible to contamination and consistency issues.

Hemp-derived extract is certainly economical and useful in the right contexts. As with all things, however, it’s good to have as many options as possible when you’re on the hunt for the perfect Hemp extract for your condition.

We produce Varicose Vein Treatment Cream with either hemp-derived or citrus-derived extract to provide you with a wealth of options as you search for the perfect way to get rid of varicose veins for good. In this guide, we’ll explain how it’s possible to extract Hemp extract derivated subtance from citrus and help you understand the benefits of both citrus-derived and hemp-derived extracts.

Is hemp the only place you can get these extracts?

C. s.ativa contains a vast array of different compounds. Some of these compounds, such as flavonoids and terpenes, are also found in other plants, however, are unique extracts to this plants, so they aren’t found anywhere else in the natural world.

Certain terpenes, however, are structurally similar to hemp extract. For years, scientists have postulated that it might be possible to reconstruct terpenes into hemp extract, but until recently, the technological infrastructure necessary to achieve this feat on a large scale simply didn’t exist.

Hemp may be the only place you can find this extract in nature, but that doesn’t mean it is the only source of this compound. Using surprisingly simple technologies, it’s now possible to transform terpene molecules into Hemp by the millions. Modern pharmaceutical science has finally caught up to the needs of the Hemp extract economy, providing consumers with much-needed variety and choice.

Hemp extract is similar to other plant compounds

When you look at the molecular structure of Hemp extract, it bears a striking similarity to limonene, a common terpene found in both C. s.ativa and the peels of citrus fruits. Whenever you tear into an orange peel, that zesty smell that fills the air is limonene, and this distinctive aroma is also present in many types of cannabis flower.

While limonene is a potent antioxidant, it lacks the unique properties that make Hemp extract so desirable. Hemp extraxt interacts directly with the 5-HT1A neuroreceptors in your brain, for instance, and it also has high affinity with the TRP receptors, which are associated with inflammation and the sensation of pain. To give limonene the same properties as Hemp, it needs a complete makeover.

The magic of Cyclic Terpene Assembly (CTA)

Every year, around 100 million pounds of citrus fruits are grown around the world. Despite constituting around 50% of the weight of fresh citrus fruit, there are very few uses for citrus peels, so they are usually discarded and make their way into landfills.

Efforts are underway to make composting more common at citrus juice manufacturing plants, but it would still be ideal if we could make citrus peels more useful even if they’re discarded sustainably. At long last, pioneering Hemp extracts scientists have found a way to solve two issues at once by transforming the limonene in citrus peels into Hemp exact derivated extract.

A new, proprietary process called Cyclic Terpene Assembly (CTA) takes isolated limonene from citrus peels and reconstructs it into 99%+ pure extract on a mass scale. Not only does this unique process transform a waste product into something useful, but it also solves many of the concerns that are holding back the growth of the international Hemp market, including:


Consumers are becoming more aware of the contamination issues that are disturbingly common in the hemp industry. We source our hemp-derived extract from an ethical manufacturer that uses organic cultivation processes, but most hemp-derived is not as high-quality.

Association with Hemp

Some consumers don’t want to use Hemp because of its association with C. s.ativa. By law, Hemp extract products must contain less than 0.3% of other products, but certain people prefer to get their Hemp from a source that doesn’t have anything to do with Hemp whatsoever.

International law

Many nations around the world still have highly restrictive policies against Hemp. Even a single hemp derived molecule is too much for the customs authorities of certain countries, but citrus-derived side-steps these concerns since it is not derived from Hemp.

Citrus-derived molecule is bioidentical to hemp-derived extract

It’s natural to be skeptical about Citrus derived from a source other than hemp. We’ve been taught for years, after all, that C. s.ativa is the only source of Hemp, so deriving extract from citrus flies in the face of conventional wisdom.

The citrus-derived we include in Varicose Vein Treatment Cream, however, is 100%-bioidentical with hemp-derived extract, which means these two compounds share the same chemical structure. This claim is backed up by the independent lab tests we’ve commissioned for this product, and additional labs around the world have confirmed that the citrus-derived extrat we use is molecularly identical with hemp-derived extract.

Since it is verified as being genuine product, the citrus-derived hemp product in Varicose Vein Treatment Cream is guaranteed to interact with your bodily systems in the exact same way as hemp-derived extract. The only difference is that citrus-derived extract is more sustainable, more consistent, and more pure than most hemp-derived extracts.

Why Varicose Vein Treatment Cream gives you the choice

We strongly believe that everyone should have access to the latest innovations of Hemp industry has to offer. There are quite a few impressive advantages to using citrus-derived extract, but we understand that many people aren’t ready for this new product type quite yet. Just as many people, however, are desperate for an alternative to hemp, which is why we think offering citrus-derived extract is just as important as offering hemp-derived extract.

While we expect that synthesized hemp will be the norm within five years or less, for now, we’re only one of a handful of brands that offer citrus-derived extract. This form of hemp is on the cutting edge of pharmaceutical science, and we believe that the true answers to varicose veins can only be found when we deliver tomorrow’s technologies today.
