What is CBD Oil?
CBD Oil is obtained from the resin glands in heads of the cannabis plant. The oil located within these glands will usually change in quality and volume, depending on which various strains of the cannabis plant they are extracted from.
CBD Oil can be extracted within three separate forms, which involve an ethanol method (using high-grain alcohol), a C02 process, which eliminates substances like chlorophyll, and a carrier oil (usually olive oil) method. Unlike 'medical cannabis', which is generally made from plants with high traces of psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD oil holds a powerful CBD content but a very low THC hemp content (0.2%), The law states that there must not be any more than 1mg of THC per container.
Is CBD Hemp Oil & Hemp Seed Oil the same thing?
No! CBD Hemp Oil significantly varies from the kinds of hemp seed oil that you'll generally find in the shelves of your local supermarket. Hemp seed oil is obtained entirely from Hemp Seeds it holds several healthy Vitamins and Minerals. Unlike CBD Hemp Oil, however, hemp seed oil does not contain CBD. We believe that using hemp seed oil as a diluent for our CBD has the best of both worlds.
How might CBD Oil benefit my health and wellbeing?
CBD Oil associates with our body's naturally occurring system - the Endogenous Cannabinoid System (ECS). It is a non-psychotropic cannabinoid (meaning it will not cause a high) that binds to the special receptor sites of our organs, brain, and immune system to influence pain response & immune function and monitor homeostasis & hormonal imbalances. It also appears that adding CBD Oil to your everyday diet may have an assertive impact on your general health and well-being because it's a rich source of omega-3 and Amino Acids too!
What does full spectrum mean?
Full spectrum CBD means that a CBD product contains all of the cannabinoids which are found in the cannabis plant, rather than just CBD (Cannabidiol). Full spectrum extraction, which is also associated with the phrase “entourage effect” – refers to the increased effectiveness of the products due to a range of cannabinoids working synergistically. Full spectrum is also said to be more effective than products that are only CBD isolate derived. Products that are CBD isolate will only contain the isolated CBD molecule.
Another thing you are getting with a full spectrum product besides CBD is that you are also getting more than one hundred different cannabinoids found in the natural hemp plant. CBD & THC are the most abundant cannabinoids in cannabis, but several minor cannabinoids can play an essential role in the effectiveness of a CBD product. See below for a list of their names and the part recent studies suggest they play in the human body.
CBD – Cannabidiol
CBD is one of the most useful compounds in the natural hemp plant. Unlike THC, CBD will not give the user a “high - stoned” feeling which it has been traditionally known for in the past. It is used by consumers to help promote a healthy functioning endocannabinoid system. Some consumers report it has a relaxing/calming effect, while others may feel more energetic and energised.
THC – Tetrahydrocannabinol
THC is the second most known cannabinoid in the natural plant. It is also the most desired compound in hemp’s sister plant, Cannabis. THC is the compound in the cannabis plant that makes the user feel “high”. Legally, the distinction between hemp and marijuana is the THC content of the plant. Anything less than 0.2% is defined as hemp, and anything over 0.2% is Cannabis. While full spectrum CBD products will contain a trace amount of THC, levels will always be below the 1mg mark. In such small amounts, consumers using CBD will not feel the psychoactive effects of the THC. The trace is only present to help increase the entourage effect.
CBG – Cannabigerol
CBG is another non-intoxicating cannabinoid just like CBD. It’s the parent compound of THC and CBD and acts as a precursor to the three main cannabinoid lines: tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and cannabichromene acid (CBCA). Enzymes in the cannabis plant will break down CBG and convert it to one of these final compounds.
CBN – Cannabinol
CBN is a minor cannabinoid that is being studied for its sedative effects. Believed to be the compound in the cannabis that generates a relaxing & calming feeling in the user.
CBC – Cannabichromene
Cannabichromene (CBC), is one of the hundreds of cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant and is, therefore, a phytocannabinoid. It bears structural similarity to the other natural cannabinoids, including THC, THCV, CBD, CBN, among others.CBC and its derivatives are as abundant as cannabinoids in cannabis.
