What is CBD Oil?
CBD Oil is derived from the resin glands in flowers of the cannabis plant. The oil found within these glands will often differ in quality and quantity, depending from which different strains of the cannabis plant they are extracted.
CBD Oil can be extracted in three different ways, which include an ethanol method (using high-grain alcohol), a C02 method, which removes substances like chlorophyll, and a carrier oil (usually olive oil) method. Unlike 'medical marijuana', which is usually made from plants with high traces of psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD oil contains a high CBD content but very low-THC hemp content (0.2%).
Are CBD Hemp Oil & Hemp Seed Oil the same thing?
No! CBD Hemp Oils significantly differ from the types of hemp seed oil that you'll commonly find upon the shelves of your local supermarket. Hemp seed oil is derived only from Hemp Seeds and contains many healthy Vitamins and Minerals. Unlike CBD Hemp Oil however, hemp seed oil does not contain cannabidiol.
How might CBD Oil benefit my body?
CBD Oil interacts with our body's naturally occurring system - the Endogenous Cannabinoid System (ECS). It is a non-psychotropic cannabinoid (meaning it doesn’t cause a high) that binds to the special receptor sites of our organs, brain, and immune system to positively influence pain response & immune function, and regulate homeostasis & hormonal imbalances. It also seems that adding CBD Oil to your everyday diet may have a positive impact on your general health and well-being because it's a rich source of omega-3 and Amino Acids too!
