Cannabidiol oil is made from high-CBD, low-THC hemp. After harvests, high-CBD hemp crops are put through a specialized solvent-free extraction process to yield hemp oil that is naturally high in cannabidiol. This pure hemp extract is then tested for quality, safety and cannabinoid content.
CBD itself doesn’t induce any psychoactive effects, while the THC content is so low that there are no psychoactive effects associated with the use of CBD-rich products.
How to make CBD oil? Product composition
High quality CBD oil can be extracted by pushing CO2 through the plant at high pressures and low temperatures. The CO2 extraction method is often thought of as the best and safest as it cleanly extracts CBD, removing substances like chlorophyll, while leaving no residue. Other methods of extraction include ethanol and oil extractions.
Cannabidiol oil is known for the following benefits:
- It’s anti-inflammatory
- It helps treat insomnia, anxiety, neuropathic pain, schizophrenia, convulsions, ulcers, diabetes, colitis, heart disease, liver inflammation and more;
- It’s used to alleviate undesirable side effects from the use of traditional medications
CBD oil contains omega fatty acids (omega-3, omega-6), vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, K, E), minerals (magnesium, potassium, zinc, phosphorus, iron), amino acids, chlorophyll, terpenes and other nutritious materials. Chlorophyll in particular is known for its antitumor effects.
What is the difference between the effects that CBD and traditional medications have on inflammation? Studies have shown that cannabidiol had a much stronger analgesic effect on inflammation in comparison to tramadol and aspirin. Each person has an endocannabinoid system that helps the body maintain a healthy biological balance. CBD directly stimulates this system by slowing the elimination of natural cannabinoids produced by the body and binds to certain non-cannabinoid receptors involved in physical and mental health.
Beneficial effect of CBD products
Many people are interested to find that Cannabidiol is not addictive. It is important to understand that CBD oil is used for medicinal purposes, mainly for treating and alleviating the effects of certain diseases. It is not used for getting “high” since it does not have psychoactive properties. There are no known adverse side effects from the oil. To date, there is no scientific proof showing CBD to cause mental and physical harm to the health of a person.
Cannabidiol can be used at any age, because it is hypoallergenic and completely safe even for children. It is a 100% natural product, it doesn’t contain preservatives or chemical additives.
