WHAT IS CBD OIL?
CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol. CBD oil is a food-grade supplement that contains CBD.
Cannabidiol is a substance found in marijuana that allegedly has numerous health benefits such as helping decrease anxiety, providing pain relief, helping people have a better night's sleep, and for treating epilepsy.
Countless users attest to its benefits for these conditions and many others.
Everything you ever wanted to know about CBD oil, and more!
CBD Oil is everywhere. You read about it in the news. You see ads for it online, and supplements are available in your favourite nutrition and health-related stores. Your friends, family, and co-workers are likely even talking about it and adding it to the smoothie they drink after they work out and even in their morning office. But what exactly is CBD Oil? Is it the same thing as marijuana? And why is it becoming so popular?
Here are the answers to those questions as well as others and all the information you need to know about CBD oil.
How is CBD extracted from the marijuana plant?
There are a few different methods for extracting CBD from the marijuana plant, but one of the most popular and effective methods is carbon dioxide (CO2) extraction. CO2 is used because it has unique properties that permit it to exist as a liquid, solid, and a gas. A device known as a closed-loop extractor incorporates the CO2 to remove the CBD from the marijuana plant.
The closed-loop extractor is a three-chambered device. The process begins when CO2 in its solid-state and is added to the extractor device. The first chamber changes the CO2 into a gas. It is then moved into the second chamber, which contains the marijuana plant material. Inside this second chamber, the pressure is extremely high, and the CO2 changes to a liquid state and absorbs the flavours, terpenes, essential waxes, and oils from the marijuana plant. Finally, the CO2, which now contains the cannabinoid mixture, moves into the third chamber. Once there, heat is introduced, and the CO2 is turned into a gas again. What is left behind is only what was extracted from the marijuana plant – CBD, which is then added to a carrier oil, creating CBD oil.
One of the main reasons that this CO2 extraction method is so favoured is because CO2 leaves no residue behind in the third chamber. This clean method ensures that the CBD is in its purest form. Other extraction methods, such as butane extraction, can leave behind traces of heavy metals that dilute the purity of the CBD and may inhibit its effectiveness for users.
Is cannabidiol the same as marijuana?
The nature of the relationship between CBD and marijuana is a common question and concern that many people have. The answer is simple - CBD and marijuana are not the same.
Marijuana is the dried flowers, leaves, and stems of the marijuana plant, which is also called cannabis. CBD is an ingredient in the cannabis plant, and it is not the component that makes people feel high. CBD is a non-psychoactive part of cannabis, and it is believed to have a rather wide range of medical benefits for users. So, if you are wondering if you can get high from using CBD oil, the answer is 100% no.
What is a carrier oil?
The carrier oil is what makes CBD an oil. It is the oil to which the CBD and other extracts from the hemp plant are added. The carrier oil serves an especially important purpose because it is the delivery method of the CBD to your body.
There are three primary reasons why oil is used to deliver the CBD.
- Oil helps with CBD absorption. If CBD oil is consumed through the digestive tract, the oil is a fat-soluble substance, and the body is primed to absorb as much of the CBD as possible.
- Dosing is made easier when CBD is in oil or liquid form. The packaging will tell you how much CBD is contained in a droplet. This will ensure consistency and that you always get the exact dosage that you prefer.
- Carrier oils offer additional health benefits. Many of the most common carrier oils are reported to come with health benefits, such as decreasing HDL cholesterol, reducing the risk of heart disease, and having antioxidant benefits.
Basically, any food-grade oil can be used as a carrier oil. Some of the most common oils used include coconut, palm, soy, hemp seed, grape seed, olive, and vegetable. Some manufactures will also mix different oils to get their own custom blends.
How is CBD oil consumed or used?
Taking CBD oil capsules is easy and convenient. Many users prefer this method because capsules are pre-dosed. You simply take the pill, knowing that the correct dose is already established. Consuming CBD oil in this way eliminates your need to calculate dosage. However, some users do not prefer this method because CBD oil taken in capsule form takes longer to activate in the bloodstream than other more popular consumption methods.
Tinctures are usually packaged in small glass bottles and have a dropper for application. Many consider tinctures to be the purest form of CBD oil. For tinctures, when the CBD is extracted from the plant, it is added to a carrier oil and then placed into the bottle. Users prefer using a tincture because it allows the CBD oil to enter the bloodstream quickly. Most users apply drops of the CBD oil tincture directly under the tongue for the fastest absorption.
For those who already smoke or vape, consuming CBD oil in this way seems to be the most popular choice. There are numerous varieties and flavours of CBD e-liquids, sometimes called e-juice, available. Although it may be difficult to determine the dose of CBD oil that you are receiving, users report that they still prefer vaping because even the act of vaping is relaxing to them. Consuming CBD oil in this way requires that you purchase vape equipment and maintain it, which might be a deterrent for some users.
CBD edibles are becoming more and more popular and easier to find and purchase. Pre-packaged snacks such as lollipops, cookies, gummies, and brownies are available to buy. You can also add CBD oil to the foods you prepare yourself. Many users report adding a few drops of their favourite CBD oil to their sauces, smoothies, and salad dressings. Or you can always bake a big pan of CBD oil brownies!
Topical ointments containing CBD oil are a popular method of those who frequently experience arthritis and muscular pain. Balms containing CBD oil can be applied directly to the painful area with the hope that the reported decreased pain and anti-inflammatory properties will provide quick and effective relief.
What are the alleged medical and health benefits of CBD oil?
Countless users and many studies attest to the medical benefits of CBD oil. Reportedly, a lot of users believe that CBD oil helps with inflammation, anxiety, seizures, pain, mental illness, and much more. Those who believe that CBD is beneficial use it to treat a variety of conditions and disorders, including seizures, schizophrenia, depression, anxiety disorder, and to decrease the side effects of cancer treatment such as pain, nausea and to help increase appetite.
Research is ongoing to determine the validity of medical and health claims. Presently, research is focused on animal testing in laboratories worldwide. Human testing and trails are just now beginning. As such, there is no confirmed evidence of the reported health benefits of CBD oil. Nevertheless, it continues to grow in popularity because of the many, many positive reports from users around the world.
Is CBD oil legal to use in the UK?
The short answer is – yes. CBD that is extracted from hemp of industrial grade and from a strain that has been approved by the EU is considered legal. Also, the CBD oil must have a THC content that is 0.2% or less. TCH is another ingredient in cannabis, and it is what gives people the feeling of being high. Legally, CBD oil can only contain a small trace amount of TCH to ensure that CBD oil cannot produce a psychoactive response.
As a nutritional supplement, CBD oil can be sold broadly if it is properly labelled in a way that complies with England's Food Supplements Regulations of 2003.
