How CBD Oil Works?
Many patients however, find themselves wondering how CBD oil works. Pure cbd oil is extracted from marijuana or industrial hemp plants high in CBD and then this CBD tincture is mixed with hempseed or olive oil.
There are many cbd oil brands currently producing CBD oils and CBD extracts of different kinds. There are some made specifically to drink, while others are combined with E-Cigarette liquids in order to be vaped. There are crystals of pure CBD with 98.9% cbd extract and CBD-based dabs to smoke and finally, there are topical CBD hemp oils that can be mixed with hemproot extract for pain relief or be pure and concentrated hemp CBD oil.
The CBD cannabis oil usually comes in concentrations starting from 2.5% all the way up to 30% in drops and higher in other presentations like the dabs or concentrates. It is also possible to use these other CBD extracts to make your own hemp CBD oil by adding one part of concentrate with three parts oil to reduce the concentration.
Other Ways To Consume CBD
Extracts and tinctures made from cannabidiol oil are very effective for deep muscle pains such as back aches, knee or joint pains and other chronic pains derived from degenerative ailments like multiple sclerosis but are just as effective for topical skin conditions like acne, eczema and other injuries like nicks, cuts or rashes.
Depending on the strength or quality of the cbd oil brands, they may be produced from hemp or medical grade marijuana. CBD oil made from hemp is a bit weaker and may be easier to find in places where legislation does not allow to plant commercial hemp(or marijuana). In places where there is higher availability of medical grade cannabis, there have even been producers making hash oil based on plants with minimum contents.
The medical marijuana market has also extended to seeds and more and more people are planting their own marijuana plants with under 0.2% and over 14% CDB to make higher quality tinctures and extracts and be able to provide better quality cbd cannabis oils.
CBD Oil, Supplement Not Medicine
It is important to point out that cbd tinctures as well as cannabinoid oils are not medications. They do not cure Cancer or Epilepsy or any other ailments. CBD oil works on the endocannabinoid system present in human beings and many other mammals. The Endocannabinoid system helps the human body achieve homeostasis (balance) as well as assist the body in self- healing and prevention where required.
Thanks to the effect of the cannabis oil on the endocannabinoid system, the body can then react against ailments like cancer by destroying the cancer cells or help prevent epileptic attacks by working with the brain cells that may have been damaged and helping revert this in a natural way which otherwise would require all sorts of prescription opiate-based drugs thus changing people's lives.
Cbd oil is legal to consume without a prescription in a few countries like Switzerland, Netherlands, Japan and the UK. Within these countries, there are ample networks of distributors and it is possible to find in pharmacies or health stores over the counter without the need for a medical prescription and in different presentations that do not have over .05% in Europe. In America meanwhile, states that have legal marijuana consumption do not have this limitation.
CBD Oil Around the World
It is also possible to purchase the CBD oil online, although it is recommendable to investigate further into the effects of hemp oil CBD and other kinds of CBD tinctures. Due to federal legislation in the United States, it is not possible to produce Hemp oil, cbd oil or marijuana oil and it is therefore imported from Europe or China, then processed according to FDA regulation to then be able to sell. There are companies that test the cbd hemp oil extracts up to three times before bottling and then again before being sold to the consumer.
While it is commendable that cbd oil brands are so interested in constantly testing their products, this constant action of movement and testing can lead to accelerated degradation and in worst case scenarios, contamination of the oil due to the strain of constantly testing cannabidiol oil in different locations.
CBD Oil From Europe, The Smarter Option
For CBD oil in Europe however, thanks to the availability of medical grade marijuana and the possibility to cultivate commercial hemp, CBD oil, cannabis oil and cbd extracts are made under the highest health and quality standards and their purity is one of the reasons that the terpene and other compounds in the cbd oil are much higher and better quality.
To address the issue of Cannabis oils that may have psychoactive effects (but are totally illegal), there are two big exponents; Rick Simpson Oil, also known as RSO that has a combination and CBD that seeks to take advantage of the "Entourage" effect although they come from the same plant, they are very different.
Another Marijuana oil product that may further confuse the consumer is Hash oil, produced from the crystals (or trichromes) found on Marijuana plants, then concentrated and compressed to make a strong oil (over 30%) that has similar properties as the RSO but just like it, happens to be completely illegal in Europe and somewhat legal in the United States of America depending on the cannabis legalization status valid in the state.
All of our pure CBD oil products are made from fibrous cannabis (hemp) that has a percentage of 0.2%, therefore legal in Europe and other parts of the world where it is illegal. It also contains the highest amount of terpenes and terpenoids that lend other beneficial health effects to our CBD hemp oil.
