Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound in Cannabis that is reported to have medical effects. CBD is produced from Cannabis Sativa L (industrial hemp). While related to marijuana, it is distinctly different in many key areas, most notably in its complete lack of psychoactive function. CBD,classified as a dietary supplement, is completely legal in all 50 states and harmless as well as an effective beneficial dietary supplement. CBD oil must be extracted from a legal Cannabis sativa plant, known as hemp. In short, hemp CBD oil and cannabis CBD oil are the same. CBD is CBD. The difference is that CBD derived from the hemp plant is federally legal, whereas CBD derived from cannabis is not and will have much higher levels of THC. You are required to have a medical marijuana card to purchase CBDs from cannabis.
CBD has a myriad of uses and has been proven in countless studies to have many applications in supplementary treatment for conditions such as cancer, epilepsy, Parkinson’s and Rheumatoid Arthritis, to name a few. We have received many phone calls and emails thanking us for CBD products and CBD infused massages, saying that they have changed lives for the better.
CBD products at our wellness studio range from high milligram, decarboxylase (chemical free extraction) sublingual oils to capsules, and from vaping to pain relief salve. Most CBD oil consumers will be buying products made with hemp-derived CBD. There are a lot of companies offering it, and the quality control unfortunately isn’t always the best. The main challenge in buying CBD hemp oil is finding a reliable company that makes pure, high-quality products.
Once the endocannabinoid system is supplemented in this way, it is able to function more efficiently, optimizing the body’s performance each day. Studies have shown that hemp CBD oil helps with the treatment of seizures, leading the American Epilepsy Society to confirm that CBD helps to stop them.
As you explore the multitude of cannabinoid products on the market, ask these important questions to ensure that you’re only consuming the safest and highest quality products.
Where are the plants grown?
All forms of cannabinoid-producing plants are bioaccumulators, which means they absorb compounds and substances from the soil. While this is beneficial for the plants to grow dense and tall, it can allow contaminants, metals or pollutants to seep from the soil into the plants and eventually make their way into cannabinoid products. Before buying a cannabinoid product, ask whether the plants are grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides. It’s also a good idea to ask where the plants for the cannabinoid product were grown. If a dispensary or retail store workers can confidently answer the question, it’s a sign that they understand and care about the products they’re providing.
What type and potency of cannabinoids does the product contain?
It is important to know the potency of the cannabinoid product that you’re going to incorporate into your health care routine. Products can contain all different levels of cannabinoids. Some products contain higher amounts of the psychoactive cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which has shown to provide an array of therapeutic benefits but will also cause a user to experience a high. Others may have more cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive cannabinoid that won’t cause a high but has shown to offer neuroprotectant and antioxidant properties.
Does the cannabinoid product undergo strict testing?
It’s extremely important that cannabinoid products are tested for any outside contamination. Because of the plant’s identity as a bioaccumulator, toxins like microbes, mold, heavy metals and other possible contaminants can make their way into cannabinoid products. Always ask whether an independent accredited lab has tested the cannabinoid product for safety and quality before you buy or consume it.
What, if any, are the other ingredients used in the product?
While some people prefer to consume pure cannabinoid products, some products, such as edibles and tinctures, include other ingredients beyond the cannabinoids and other natural constituents themselves. Cannabinoid products are designed to encourage homeostasis, so you don’t want to tamper with this balance by selecting products that contain artificial ingredients. Be sure to ask whether any additional ingredients that are added to products are all natural and not synthetic. QCBN
