Basically there are a few types of oils. Full spectrum oils are ones that contain terpenes and other compounds. These type of oils tend to work better on specific conditions. Pure CBD is quite hard to come by if you don’t live in a medical or recreational state. There are other oils that also contain THC. The type of oil you need really depends on your medical condition and what you are looking to achieve
High potency CBD tinctures are a great option for people who like a higher concentration of CBD. Each batch is third-party tested to ensure our product is natural, consistent and potent. For legal restrictions, we can’t make claims about specific health benefits of CBD. We recommend speaking to your doctor for more information about CBD’s benefits, and what serving size is right for you. For more information, visit our CBD Info & Knowledge Base page.
In addition, CBD oil can be extracted and manufactured through “supercritical CO2 extraction.” This process involves using carbon dioxide under high pressure in an extremely cold environment. Supercritical CO2 extraction requires expensive equipment, more complex refinement process and production expertise, but it ensures that CBD oil maintains its purity all through the process.
I have fibromyalgia and piriformious syndrome (severe hip/leg pain) and for the past six months have been dealing with extreme pain and insomnia. Having exhausted all tricks, remedies, doctors, and medications without relief I decided to try Cbd oil. After only two days I have slept like a baby, had hours of continuous deep sleep, sleep app confirmed this. The Hip/leg pain is dulled, but dulled enough that I can do therapy stretches without screaming or crying. The nerve pain from fibro feels like it is asleep! It is the most amazing thing not to feel every nerve in your body after three years of constant pain. The cbd oil does give me a slight tummy ache after taking it but goes away in about an hour. And I do mean slight ache. So far no side effects or interactions. ( Will up date if do)
But there’s a big difference between the two. Hemp seed oil has been pressed from hemp seed, and it’s great for a lot of things – it’s good for you, tastes great, and can be used in soap, paint – even as biodiesel fuel. However, hemp seed oil does not contain any concentration of cannabinoids at all, including CBD. So by all means, stock up at your local natural food store. Just don’t expect to reap the benefits of a true CBD oil when you cook with hemp seed oil.
Full spectrum CBD also contains a variety of essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, protein, chlorophyll, terpenes, flavonoids, and fiber. When referring to CBD in the hemp plant, it’s important to understand that Hemp contains a large number of cannabinoids (in trace amounts), but the main compounds are CBD and cannabidiolic acid (CBDa). As CBDa is more abundant in the hemp plant, firms must decarboxylate the oil. This process heats the oil and changes CBDa into CBD.
So, with all this talk of marijuana and THC and being ‘high’, we typically find the next question to be: IS CBD LEGAL. And, as you are probably well aware, there are several states where CBD extracts from marijuana are legal, there are many more that are not. But, point blank, CBD extracted from hemp, whether singularly or as a full spectrum cannabinoid blend, is legal in all 50 states.
Hi Stephen, this is something we are currently working on. The difficulty with full spectrum products is that the terpenes and plant matter which people attribute benefits to, also bring with them the essential flavors of hemp. We have designed two new full spectrum flavors (french vanilla mocha and chocolate mint) which mask the hemp flavor, but it will be a few months until we have ramped up the production necessary to support these products.
Many people are familiar with cannabidiol (CBD), which is found in highly concentrated amounts in our products, but there are actually dozens of cannabinoids found in hemp, which have shown many benefits in studies. We choose to make all our products with full-spectrum hemp oil, which includes all of the cannabinoids found in the plant, so you don’t miss out on any of the benefits.
On a molecular level, all classes of cannabinoid are derived from the cannabinoid cannabigerol (CBG). Cannabinoids are changed from their original acid forms by decarboxylation through heat, light, or alkaline conditions, allowing them to interact fully with the endocannabinoid system. Learn more about all the cannabinoids found in our full spectrum hemp oil below:
The label of this CBD oil tincture was not as easy to read as other products. Palmetto Harmony’s hemp is grown in Kentucky. This family operated business began when CBD offered unique benefits to their ailing child, Harmony. In addition tinctures, they offer topicals, capsules, pet products and even transdermal CBD patches. This tincture was selected by our friends at Anavii Market.
It sounds like the title of a children’s book, but like so much else that you learned in kindergarten, it’s true. Everyone’s body is different – but everyone’s endocannabinoid system is really unique. For reasons we don’t fully understand, receptors in the endocannabinoid system don’t respond predictably to cannabinoids from person to person. This lack of a predictable response makes standard dosing tricky.
When looking at isolate, it is important to verify the purity. While many are in the 99.9+% range with no identifiable amounts of THC, there are lower purity ones (such as 99.5% or lower) that may still have trace amounts that show up on the labs. This small amount is typically negligible, and is nowhere near the amount usually found in Full Spectrum products. But it’s still something to be aware of for those seeking the purest they can find.
Some companies, especially those who sell their products at a ridiculously low price, may use cheap methods when extracting CBD oil. This requires toxic solvents that are dangerous to our health such as propane, hexane, pentane and butane. Two of these are commonly used in gas stoves and ranges, such as propane and butane, and all of them are hydrocarbon gases found in petroleum.
The aforementioned entourage effect is the main reason behind the efficacy of whole plant extracts. There are over 100 ‘identified’ compounds in the cannabis plant. While most of these compounds have their own therapeutic benefit, they combine synergistically to provide a far better performance than any single compound, including CBD. Here are a couple of examples of conditions that benefit from the entourage effect:
