CBD: What is it and what does research show?
Research is revealing the health benefits of CBD oil, but what exactly is it? As found on Healthline, “Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the 104 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis or marijuana plant, Cannabis sativa.” As opposed to another chemical compound, THC, found in cannabis which “is psychoactive,” CBD does not cause the “high” effect. Research is showing positive research for “relief of pain and other symptoms without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical drugs.”
There are multiple extraction methods to capture the CBD oil. As you see, the CBD oil is diluted with “a carrier oil like coconut or hemp seed oil.” The body can better absorb and digest the CBD oil, as you can learn more about on MarijuanaBreak.com.
“Common” Methods for Extracting CBD Oil
As found on Intrinsic Hemp, the CBD oil must be separated to capture “a highly concentrated form” that is “suitable for human consumption.” This article reveals there are “three most common ways CBD is extracted.”
Liquid Solvent Method
Reported to the “less expensive option that is fast and easy” using solvents as “ethanol, butane, alcohol, or isopropyl.” Although less expensive, this method is more dangerous with the use of such flammable liquids. Using these liquid solvents is also destructive to the “plant waxes which hold numerous health benefits.” This method also enhances the taste by removing “chlorophyll.”
Olive Oil Method
Even though this is a less costly and simple method, it is not the optimal choice. Results can be undesirable if oils are not “kept in a cool, dark place.” CBD oil is “not as concentrated” using this method, and “users would need to ingest a much higher quantity.” The main reason to work with this method is it is a reportedly safer method.
The Co2 method, while reportedly more complicated and more expensive, is known to have better results. When “done correctly, it is safe, potent, and free of chlorophyll.” This “three-chamber” process also “allows for the temperature and pressure to be carefully adjusted during the process.” A higher quality result is realized because “this method does not remove the health benefits as other methods do, and the final product is less likely to be contaminated.”
Another interesting bit of information to know is that the Co2 can have a twofold purpose. Be sure and ask if you want to know more.
