1. CBD otherwise known as "cannabidiol" which is pronounced, canna-bid-dye-all is the second most abundant chemical compound in the cannabis plant. There are over 120 cannabinoids in cannabis and THC is the most abundant with CBD coming in second place.
In recent years CBD has gained popularity for its many potential medical benefits without the intoxicating effects as is often the concern with medical THC. Advancements in breeding techniques have now rendered strains of the marijuana/cannabis plant to be 99% CBD and less than .3% THC. These low levels of THC render the hemp plant legal to formulate into a variety of CBD products, such as, tincture forms, edibles, pills, salves, patches, vapes, drinks and other consumable products which are legal to distribute in all 50 states and in the UK.
2. The chemical compound CBD is non-psychoactive and does not render a "high" like its buddy THC, although both compounds come from the same cannabis plant, "the cannabis genus." CBD is extracted from sativa l. hemp. CBD Oil can be extracted to isolate out the THC completely or almost completely depending on the method of extraction. CBD is known to counter and even block the intoxicating effects of THC. It is believed that the cannabis sativa l. plant that previously grew in the wild had higher levels of CBD compound in them naturally. But over time as the demand for the THC component increased, the hybrid cannabis plants and seeds slowly evolved into higher THC intensive strains. Now the trend is reversing. People are demanding more CBD dominant strains as the health benefits of CBD oil are becoming popular and publicized. There are no known side-effects from ingesting CBD oil, even in larger than usual quantities.
The Current Drug Safety review rendered CBD safe and it “does not interfere with several psychomotor and psychological functions.”
3. CBD has an amazing range of possible medicinal benefits for the human body. CBD can be extracted and isolated out as a single compound of the cannabis plant alone. When processing out everything except the CBD, the end product is a white crystaline powder which can be rendered water soluble and added to beverages, edibles and cosmetics. Also in the manufacturing of a more complete CBD oil, the industry calls this blend "full spectrum" CBD oil. Here the CBD can be carefully isolated from the THC component, while allowing the other beneficial cannabinoids in the hemp plant to remain intact in the finished CBD oil product, not just CBD alone. The en result is a product with such a small trace of THC left behind, it is too low to produce intoxication. And with CBD hemp oil to be legal it must test out to have less than .3% THC by dry weight. This manufacturing process where the CBD and other plant cannabinoids and terpenes remain is called CO2 extraction creating a very potent CBD oil. Full spectrum CBD oil drops by CTFO CBD hemp oil company has a proprietary blend that is 3rd party lab tested for purity, strength and accuracy of labeling. CTFO full spectrum CBD oil creates the mysterious effect scientists as "the entourage effect where dozens of natural chemical compounds in the hemp are distilled out along with other beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes working together inside the body's endocannabinoid system to bring about in harmony and homeostasis.
What remains after the CO2 extraction is a nutritious blend of CBD rich hemp oil. CBD Hemp Oil is considered to be a Super Food - it offers a complete spectrum of
It is believed the nutritious characteristics of the CBD oil lend it the wonderful potential medicinal effects. However, most of the clinical research has been conducted on animals with few human trials. According to a 2013 review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, studies have found CBD to possess the following potential medical properties:
4. CBD neutralizes the intoxicating effects of THC. CBD seems to offer the user a natural reduction in the feeling of the high traditionally associated with marijuana. Studies shed light on the fact that CBD lowers the intoxicating effects of THC, and mitigates the memory impairment and feeling of paranoia often associated with marijuana. So it is said that CBD creates a more abundant feeling of calmness. The more abundant the CBD compound in the smoked marijuana variety, the more relaxed the smoker will feel with fewer sensations of anxiety. CBD oil is completely safe, even in large doses, it has never been known to cause an overdose of any kind. And CBD oral tinctures are much safer than smoking marijuana. CBD can be extracted from all cannabis strains both endica (marijuana) and sativa l. (hemp strains) alike. But only when the CBD oil is extracted from industrial hemp, is it legal to be sold on the mainstream market and shipped via US mail.
Some strains of CBD cannabis are known to increase alertness. CBD in some instances counteract the drowsiness and sleepiness effects often associated with THC.
Both CBD and THC have been found to present no risk for lethal overdose.
More people are consuming the raw cannabis plant in blended smoothies without smoking the cannabis or heating it in any way. Anecdotal evidence is beginning to show that eating cannabis raw as a food source is the safest and most potentially medicinal method of ingesting the in the plant.
Prohibition against cannabis started in the United States in 1937 with the Marihauana Tax Act. Prior to this cannabis was considered a medicine that was sold over the counter by pharmacists for a sleep aid and for convulsion among other ailments in America and all over the world.
