What is pure CBD oil?
Cannabidiol (CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are both cannabinoids, meaning that they are in fact sisters to the mother Cannabis plant. CBD is derived from hemp, one of the oldest crops. For thousands of years, we have been producing clothing and paper from it. On the other hand, marijuana and hashish contain high amounts of THC so that they can be used as an intoxicant. The important difference is that CBD is not psychotropic like THC; it does not induce a euphoric effect, otherwise known as a “high”.
CBD oil contains less than 0.3% THC
CBD is legally available and easy to purchase in the US and many other countries. It is commonly offered as a dietary supplement or for cosmetic purposes. CBD is completely vegan, meaning it does not contain any animal products. Also, there are different processes for making the different oils.
Cannabis oil, hemp oil, hemp seed oil… the terms are confusing and often these oils are mistaken to be the same. But not all oils that come from the hemp plant are all the same. The term “cannabis oil” is basically an umbrella term that includes various oils, but the various oils are extracted from different parts of the plant and are processed differently. Most importantly, the various oils differ in their THC concentration. THC is a psychoactive substance that has an intoxicating effect. Our CBD oil is derived from the aerial parts of the help plant and as such, contain less than 0.3% THC.
Disappointed by the limited possibilities with conventional medicine, many people like yourself have searched for alternative solutions, particularly herbal medicines and natural remedies, and have discovered CBD oil.
Highly satisfied reports and positive reviews are making their rounds.
Since using CBD, people who have struggled to find relief are now seeing improved mind and body health.
When taking CBD, it often does not take long to experience the effects.
Users have described how they feel more energy and relaxation almost immediately after the first use. People can also experience pain relief in a short amount of time.
Additional ingredients of the hemp oil are omega-3 fatty acids, omega-6 fatty acids and gamma-linolenic acid, which have a positive effect on blood pressure and skin. It contains vitamin E in large quantities, as well as riboflavin and vitamins B1 and B2. Essential nutrients such as iron, potassium, calcium, copper, manganese, magnesium, sodium, phosphorus and zinc are naturally present in the oils as well.
Therefore, the use of CBD products as a dietary supplement has many health benefits for a better quality of life, especially since there are little to none undesirable side effects.
How Does CBD Work?
The Endocannabinoid System
You may be wondering how can a single herb help so many different conditions and be safe while offering such powerful effects? The answer is actually quite simple. First, we need to understand the Endocannabinoid System. Our bodies contain a special system called the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system (which is named after the plant that led to its discovery) is involved in regulating sleep, appetite, pain and immune system response. The body produces something called endocannabinoids, which are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system. Interestingly, the endocannabinoid system was not discovered until the 1980s. This specialized system contains the CB1 and CB2 receptors.
Cannabinoid Receptors and Cannabinoids
Our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids to stimulate these receptors. When these receptors are stimulated, a variety of physiologic processes follow. The most well-understood of endocannabinoids produced by the body are anandamide (Ananda is the Sanskrit word for bliss) and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2/AG). After binding to receptors in the body, these cannabinoids all produce a wide range of physiological effects, altering everything from blood pressure, appetite, mood, and pain response.
Phytocannabinoids are plant substances that can stimulate the body’s cannabinoid receptors. Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is the most psychoactive of these and undoubtedly the most famous of these substances, but other cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabinol (CBN) are gaining the interest of researchers due to the variety of healing properties. Most phytocannabinoids have been isolated from Cannabis Sativa, but other medicinal herbs, such as Echinacea Purpura have been found to contain non-psychoactive cannabinoids as well. Even the cannabis plant itself uses THC and other cannabinoids to promote its own health and prevent disease.
How to Use CBD?
CBD Oil Dosage and Application
The exact dosage for the oil depends on what exactly you choose to use it for. When using CBD products, it is important to remember that the body gradually becomes accustomed to the active ingredient. Therefore, it is best to start with one drop per day, either early in the morning or in the evening before going to bed. The dose can then be gradually increased until you notice significant improvements to your body’s conditions. Be aware that this can differ from our strongest CBD oil to our light CBD oil. Listen to your body to have the best experience.
For best results, place the oil directly under the tongue, hold for 60 seconds and swallow. Avoid touching the dropper to mouth in order to preserve the quality of your CBD oil.
Can you pass a Drug test?
One of the most common questions people ask about CBD is if they can pass a drug test after consuming CBD. Yes, it is true that CBD containing products can give positive results to drug tests that search for THC and cannabis. Urine testers and saliva testers can react to all sorts of cannabinoids. One can always request blood tests which can show specific cannabinoids.
Cannabidiol has been shown to be a powerful antioxidant in animal studies. Thus, the regular use of CBD oil can prevent cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis and coronary heart disease. A study by the School of Medicine at Nottingham University also showed that cannabinoids can dilate and relax our blood vessels. Thus, heart disease patients treated with CBD would be at lower risk of suffering from a heart attack.
The Antioxidant Properties of CBD
CBD as an Antioxidant
For the longest time, Vitamins C & E was considered to be some of the strongest antioxidants. Other than eating foods rich in these vitamins, people also turned to supplements in an effort to obtain more antioxidants. New research is emerging that shows that Cannabinoids are good, if not the richest source of anti-oxidants known to man. Interesting, isn’t it?
How do they know this, you ask? The CBD structure contains a free oxygen atom2. This is the atom that is donated to the free radicals, thus neutralizing them. It is this free oxygen atom that gives CBD its antioxidant property, and which makes it great at getting rid of free radicals. CBD has also been shown to have Neuro-protectant properties. These properties protect the body against countless neurodegenerative diseases.
Research On CBD As An Antioxidant
Various studies have been conducted to show the antioxidant properties of CBD. In a study that was conducted on rats, CBD was found to significantly reduce hydro-peroxide toxicity in neurons3. Another study concluded that CBD as an anti-oxidant was 30%- 50% stronger than both Vitamins C & E4.
In yet another study published by the British Journal of Pharmacology, CBD was found to reduce inflammation caused by the injection of amyloid, which is the protein that is associated with the death of cells that causes Alzheimer’s. CBD was also shown to reduce toxicity in rats that were exposed to high levels of glutamate, an excitatory Neuro-transmitter.
