CBD Hemp Oil is the oil prepared from the stalks of hemp plants. The stalks are rendered mature and then they are pressed to produce the oil. The full form of CBD is cannabidiol which is the second most abundant component found in cannabis plants. One of the major qualities possessed by CBD is that it does not cause any psychotropic effect. The process of manufacturing CBD hemp oil is quite a hectic job which needs utmost concentration and alertness.
The cannabis plants contain another widely found cannabinoid component called THC, which stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol. This THC causes high psychotropic effects. So to manufacture CBD Hemp Oil, we need to select the cannabis plants which contain high amounts of CBD and low or negligible amounts of THC. Thus, consumption of CBD hemp oil does not make an individual feel high. Nor does it cause any kind of harmful effects.
There are 3 major methods of extracting CBD Hemp Oil from the hemp plants:
In this method the stalks collected from the hemp plants are made to pass through a room which contains very low temperatures and high pressure. Ultimately, the stalks, then reacted with CO2.
Due to the controlled environmental conditions and the application of CO2, the CBD Oil obtained is completely free from contaminants and chlorophyll.
Thus, the hemp oil obtained from this method is completely pure and harmless.
In this method, a carrier oil is used, most preferably olive oil. The concentration of omega acids is enhanced if seed oil of hemp is used. This method to extract CBD Oil also preserves the essential biomolecules needed to maintain the biological equilibrium of the body.
This method employs the use of ethanol as it is an alcohol having high grain content. But this method is avoided to prevent the risk of explosions.
THC causes a lot of psychoactive effects on an individual. But CBD does not contain any psychoactive properties. Rather, it diminishes the negative effects of THC. There are specific receptors in our brain, which when comes in contact with THC causes the mind altering effects. On the contrary, CBD does not act on those receptors. It has a separate pathway by which it acts on the human body.Thus, CBD Hemp Oil does not cause any mind altering affects unlike THC. CBD also tends to diminish the sleep instigating effects of THC. CBD hemp oil is proving its striking presence in the medical field due to its properties of inhibiting the growth of cancerous cells. Moreover, it reduces the obstructive effects of THC.
