What is CBD Oil?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, which is one of approximately 113 naturally occurring chemical compounds, known as cannabinoids, that can be found in the marijuana plant. Unlike THC, CBD is a component of the marijuana plant that aids in many medical conditions without producing a “high”. It’s often extracted and mixed with an oil such as hemp seed oil or coconut-based MCT oil to create CBD oil.
It is then consumed in a variety of different ways – through inhalation, ingestion, absorbed sublingual under the tongue, or even applied topically to the skin. While its claims may be overstated, it has been shown to treat a wide variety of ailments including pain from inflammation, anxiety, PTSD, and many more. It has even been used successfully with a variety of pets as well, with CBD oil for dogs being the most popular among pets.
What are the benefits of using CBD Oil?
What isn’t CBD being used for right now, should be the question. CBD Oil is used for numerous health conditions, ranging from depression to epilepsy. It is known to have natural pain relief and anti-inflammatory properties. CBD Oil is also thought to help with anxiety, PTSD and other neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis. It has also been used topically to help fight pain at the source, acne and other skin conditions.
How do you take CBD oil?
CBD Oil can be consumed in a few different ways:
- sublingually (under the tongue) as the best method for consumption, using CBD Tinctures
- ingested by eating it, with gummies, candies, capsules & phoenix tears
- inhaled using CBD vape oil
- topically by using a CBD cream or lotion.
Should I take full spectrum CBD oil or an oil made from CBD Isolate?
We always recommend full-spectrum CBD oil first. There is much evidence that CBD benefits from what’s called the “entourage effect“. This can be summed up as the whole is greater than its parts. So CBD is shown to work better when it’s accompanied by the other cannabinoids present in the marijuana plant.
It doesn’t have to be a lot, but a small amount of THC will help to activate the CBD in your endocannabinoid system. Of course, not everyone can take THC, whether for personal or employment reasons. Isolate (CBD oil with no THC) works great as well, but when comparing full-spectrum versus isolate, results seem better with customers who use a whole plant extract.
What’s the difference between CBD oil from hemp or from marijuana?
In short, not much. The CBD that products use is from a cannabis plants with a low enough THC level to be classified as hemp. That’s it (unlike the differences between CBD oil & THC oil, however).
For our products that are made with CBD isolate, since they are isolating just the CBD molecule it doesn’t matter what the original plant that it came from was. All that matters is that the CBD has been isolated, separate from all the other cannabinoids.
For our full spectrum and broad spectrum oils, they are made with whole cannabis plant extracts, and may have THC levels anywhere from 0-3%.
