What is CBD ?

CBD is a naturally occurring compound found in cannabis. There are two main chemical components in cannabis, Tetrahydrocannabinol (psychoactive) and Cannabidiol (medicinal). Both CBD and THC have significant therapeutic attributes, but unlike THC, CBD does not make a person feel “stoned” or “high”. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body. CBD interacts with countless of target receptors throughout the body that unlock a series of chemical reactions that lead to the effects such as pain relief, a calm relaxed feeling, restful sleep, and more. The fact that CBD is therapeutically potent as well as non-intoxicating, and easy to take as a CBD oil, makes it an appealing treatment option for many people.

Cannabinoids are the natural phytochemicals found within the cannabis plant. There are over 100 identified cannabinoids and of them all, CBD and THC are the more thoroughly researched ones. All these cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system. This lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitter system plays a regulatory role in a wide range of physiological and cognitive functions, including pain modulation, mood, and seizure threshold. So all the cannabinoids interact differently with the endocannabinoid system, each having their own benefits.

Full Spectrum

If an extract is full spectrum, this means it contains all phytochemicals naturally found in the plant, including CBD, THC, terpenes, and essential oils. The active compounds extracted from hemp work together to amplify the health benefits of each individual cannabinoid. This phenomenon is referred to as the entourage effect. Due to the THC content being below 0.3% although non-psychoactive, full spectrum CBD can give you a false positive during a drug test, especially if you consume high doses of CBD oil daily.

Broad Spectrum

Broad spectrum extracts contain CBD and all the other compounds within the plant, except for THC, which is completely removed after the initial extraction. Because broad spectrum extracts contain multiple cannabinoids, they also produce the entourage effect, but without the THC.

Isolate

Isolate is the purest form of this CBD extract, made by pulling it from its natural environment and removing it from all other ingredients. The advantage of using CBD isolate over other forms of extractions is that it has the highest concentration of CBD per serving.

TYPES OF EXTRACTIONS

Carbon Dioxide Extraction (CO2)

At room temperature and standard atmospheric pressure CO2 is a gas, but at cooler temperatures and higher pressures it turns into a liquid. To extract CBD, liquid CO2 saturates the hemp plant material and drips through. As soon as temperature warms up and pressure drops, the CO2 reverts back to a gas and evaporates, leaving behind a highly concentrated CBD extract. The extract is then mixed with a carrier to make CBD oil. CO2 extraction is considered relatively non-toxic and is the preferred method of extraction in the Hemp industry

Ethanol Extraction

Ethanol is alcohol. In this process, ethanol is poured over the hemp plant. The plant sits in the ethanol for several hours or a couple of days. Then the mixture is filtered, leaving behind ethanol saturated with CBD. That CBD saturated ethanol is then heated to evaporate the ethanol, leaving behind a highly concentrated CBD extract, which then can be mixed with a carrier. Ethanol is generally regarded as safe by FDA. Its effective in killing most bacteria, fungi, and many viruses, an important factor to consider for those with compromised immune systems.

Hydrocarbon Extraction

Hydrocarbon is a chemical made up of hydrogen and carbon. Most common hydrocarbons used to extract CBD from hemp are butane, propane, hexane, and naphtha. In this process, the hydrocarbon is passed through the hemp plant material, which draws the CBD out. The residual solvent is then removed using heat and a vacuum. The heat evaporates the hydrocarbon and the vacuum suctions away the hydrocarbon leaving behind a highly concentrated CBD extract. The remaining extract can then be mixed with a carrier to make CBD oil. The possibility of trace hydrocarbons, which pose health risks, makes this form of extraction less desirable.

Oil extraction

Oil extraction uses oil such as olive oil, grapeseed oil, and medium chain triglyceride oil for the extraction process. To extract the CBD in oil itself, a glass container is filled with hemp plant and an oil is placed in a pan of boiling water for a couple of minutes to hours. Once mixture cools, its filtered and the CBD oil is ready for consumption. Since the oils cannot be further concentrated in this method, users will have to consume more CBD oil to experience the same medical benefits as the other methods of extraction.

Types of CBD Products

Oils and tinctures

Oils are placed under the tongue with a dropper. The oral mucosa is full of tiny capillaries that absorb the compounds quickly. Oils are a good choice for anyone who can’t take pills or capsules.

icon

Creams and lotions

CBD-infused topicals are used to treat muscle and joint pain. They can also treat some skin conditions, like eczema and psoriasis.

icon

Capsules and pills

CBD pills are used for systemic treatment of seizure disorders and digestive issues. Easier to control dosage There’s one drawback with capsule forms, though. The time from ingestion to onset of effect can take a while, depending on metabolism.

Edibles

Gummies and other edibles are a tasty way to take CBD. They’re affordable, portable, discrete. For the most part there is no guesswork involved, you know exactly what dose you’re taking.

icon

Vaping

Inhaling vaporized CBD oil, like e-cigs for CBD, is the fastest way to experience effects. Compounds are inhaled and absorbed directly from the lungs into the bloodstream.

icon

Dosing

You should generally start with a low dosage and go slow with increasing your dose. There may also be variations in actual CBD content between products. Use caution when starting a new package or switching dose forms.
