Full-spectrum hemp oil is when the entire plant is used to extract the CBD. The stalks, the stems, and the flowers all contain substances known as cannabinoids and terpenes. Hemp seeds do not have these substances. It is reported that cannabinoids and terpenes provide numerous health benefits. They work synergistically to produce what is known as the ‘entourage effect.’
Mounting evidence suggests that natural substances found within a plant may be more effective when they work together as compared to a single isolated substance by itself. Natural substances working together produce what is known as ‘the entourage effect‘.
Hemp Oil is made using only the seeds of a cannabis plant. It contains very little or no CBD at all. Full Spectrum CBD Oils and Isolates are made using the whole plant so it contains all the healthy benefits of cannabinoids and terpenes. Both versions are called ‘Hemp Oil’ so look for ‘full spectrum’ on the label to ensure you are getting all the benefits of cannabinoids and terpenes.
Cannabinoids are a diverse class of chemical compounds that occur naturally in the human body (known as endocannabinoids ). The cannabis plant contains phytocannabinoids which interact with the human endocannabinoid system (ECS). Cannabinoids like CBD can trigger various physiological actions when they interact with the human endocannabinoid system.
The endocannabinoid system has been recently recognized as an important modulatory system in the function of brain, endocrine, and immune tissues. It appears to play a very important regulatory role. Many studies are showing the positive health benefits of cannabinoids like CBD including reducing C-reactive protein (a proinflammatory marker). Inflammation is reported to be at the heart of many diseases.
CBD is generally considered safe. With that said, CBD is also known to interact with several medications. Before you start using CBD oil, discuss it with your doctor to ensure your safety and to avoid any potentially harmful interactions with your medicines.
Full Spectrum CBD oil shows potential for pain management. Anecdotal evidence suggests that it can be used to help manage chronic pain in many cases. It has also helped many people break the addiction of traditional pain medications. What makes CBD oil promising is its lack of intoxicating effects and a lower potential for side effects compared to traditional pain medications. CBD is one of more than 120 compounds called cannabinoids that work synergistically on the human cannabinoid system. Some studies suggest that CBDs ability to lower inflammation contributes to its pain management effect.
CBD tincture, is any liquid CBD oil that is made to be taken by mouth. CBD tincture and CBD oil are often used interchangeably but both mean the same thing. On the other hand, CBD vape oil is any CBD product that is meant to be used in a vaporizer. Common terms for CBD vape oil are CBD E-Liquid, CBD E-Juice, and CBD vape juice.
They are 12 terpenes known for their therapeutic value. They are listed on this wholesale CBD page
There is no recommended daily allowance (RDA) or dosage for CBD. Everyone is different. Some folks may require less, others may require more to achieve the therapeutic value they want. Start small and increase the amount slowly over time. Many people begin with 1/2 dropper full to start.
CBD is extracted from specific varieties of the cannabis plant, often refereed to as Industrial hemp.
CBD extraction is essentially the same process used to create essential oils, decaffeinate coffee, or to produce vitamins and minerals. The process involves turning CO2 into a supercritical liquid. Once the gas turns into a liquid it can then act as a solvent. That solvent is forced through an extraction vessel packed with finely ground cannabis material. Through a series of pressure cycles the supercritical carbon dioxide liquid is forced through the plant matter over and over until the desired cannabinoids and terpenes have been filtered out.
Here are the types of CBD we sell.
1. Tincture (Gold full spectrum)
A tincture is made using the entire hemp plant. It is known as “full spectrum” which provides the most health benefits.
2. Isolate (Silver isolate)
Isolate goes through an extra processing step to isolate only the CBD. In other words there are no other substances like terpenes in the bottle, only pure Cannabinoid and coconut oil.
3. CBD Vape Oil
CBD Vape oil is not the same as tinctures or isolates. CBD vape oil is made using PG instead of coconut oil as with the tinctures or isolates. PG allows CBD to be smokeable whereas coconut oil allows the CBD to be consumed orally or topically.
4. Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp Seed oil is made by cold-pressing the hemp seeds. It is the cheapest form of hemp oil on the market because it has very little or no CBD and terpenes. It is usually sold in grocery stores and health-food stores because of its high Omega fatty acid content. If you’re looking for the health benefits of CBD do not buy Hemp Oil made using only the seeds.
Yes. CBD and other beneficial cannabinoids can be extracted from the cannabis plant to eliminate the unwanted psychoactive side effect from THC.
