While CBD has been known for many years for its many healing properties, only recently has it began to enter the mainstream of medicine, with claims of helping to treat a variety of ailments. But before we examine CBD’s potential usefulness as a medicinal plant, let’s briefly examine what CBD oil is, or is not, and what it does. As implied by its name, CBD is derived from the hemp plant and its flowers. It is often used in topical ointments, gel and liquid extracts for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
In addition to its ability to assist with pain relief, CBD is also said to help with a range of ailments including: chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, nausea, fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, autism, cerebral palsy, seizures, tardive dyskinesia disorder, and much more. Perhaps surprisingly, the CBD is not only found in the cannabis plant. It is also present in abundance of other plants, both natural and manmade, including: grape seeds, alfalfa, and certain vegetables such as broccoli. The reason why CBD is so important is because it has a very low affinity (zero) for the delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, which is the substance found in marijuana. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce the same “high” effect when smoked or ingested. Instead, it seems to have a different, more relaxing, effect on the brain.
One of the most interesting aspects of CBD is that it has very low levels of THC, the substance found in cannabis that produces the “high” sensation when consumed. So, while CBD can be useful for relieving a variety of ailments, it is not high in THC, which makes it particularly appealing as an alternative form of treatment. Recently, CBD has been found to be effective in treating chronic pain, some forms of depression, and even chronic pain brought on by arthritis and muscle spasms.
Some strains of marijuana, such as the strain known as MMJ, are very high in THC. It has been discovered that CBD works very effectively in removing THC from the body. This is why manufacturers who produce CBD tinctures, such as the brand called Peaceful Hemp, make sure that their oil is at a very low concentration, somewhere between zero and one percent, in order to eliminate any chance of side effects. The CBD in these tinctures has been purified, meaning that it has no contaminants, sugars, or other ingredients which may lead to adverse side effects. Also, it is important to note that CBD is different from THC, with the two being two completely different substances.
A final product which bears CBD is a CBD hair oil, which can be made by simply applying hemp seed to any natural hair style. There are no oils produced by using hemp seed, only by using the CBD plant itself. This means that it does not contain any contaminants and is therefore a much safer choice for those looking for an alternative form of hair care. Since CBD is not a known carcinogen, there is no real need to fear that it will cause cancer, and its effect is purely psychological.
Unlike THC and CBD, another derivative of the cannabis plant which can be used as an oil is CBD monoterpenes. These have been around a lot longer than CBD oils, having been found in pottery many hundreds of years ago. They are actually quite similar in effect to the chemicals in marijuana. Therefore, many people have turned to using CBD oils when they want to get rid of dandruff or feel better without smoking.
In order to extract CBD, you must take special steps to ensure that all of the plant material is fully exposed to the oils and the extraction process itself. For instance, CBD extraction should never be attempted with wet material, as the process can be ruined. There are two main methods for CBD extraction, cold or hot. While both methods produce high quality CBD oil, each method works in a different way. Cold CBD extraction takes CBD oils and freezes them, then extracts them using cold water. The result is a concentrated extract with all of the plant material frozen to the bottom.
Hot CBD extraction, on the other hand, involves heating the CBD and hemp seeds to boiling point, then removing the seeds and heating the CBD again to extract the oil. Both of these methods result in a CBD oil with the highest concentration of CBD possible, but they also result in the most potent CBD available. As CBD is such a highly concentrated form of the plant material, the CBD oil is also highly effective. So which method is best? To answer this question, you will first need to visit a CBD expert who can tell you why cold CBD is generally better for you, and why hot CBD is the best CBD for you.
