CBD oil: Understand everything about the different oils.

For months now, Cannabidiol (CBD)-based products have been developing at great speed in France and throughout Europe. You can find all types of products such as flowers, resins, food and cosmetic products, but also oils. However, there are several types of oils, and it can be difficult to understand everything. We will therefore help you see things more clearly. What exactly is CBD oil? What are the differences between hemp and cannabis? Where does the oil originally come from? We will try to answer all these questions. In addition, extraction methods to obtain CBD oil, use of CBD drops will also be discussed. At the same time, we will discuss the effects and possible side effects. Finally, we will briefly present the possible applications of cannabis oils, as well as the correct dosage of these CBD products. CBD Oil: What is it, and where does it come from? CBD or cannabidiol is one of the cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant, among more than a hundred. It has experienced exponential growth in popularity in recent years. Users are diverse and varied: mothers, your grandparents, hipsters and hippies, etc. CBD oil is currently becoming the remedy of choice for pet owners. They want to guarantee their faithful companions a life without anxiety and pain. What is cannabis oil? Cannabis oil is obtained from hemp plants specially cultivated for their high CBD content. Among these, Cannabis Sativa L , a plant with very low THC content. Therefore, oil extraction does not cause any intoxication or psychotropic effects. However, the CBD content of cannabis oil can vary from product to product. There are several ways to consume it: vaporize the oil and therefore absorb the active ingredients through the respiratory tract, add the oil to food or even take it orally. The way to consume cannabis oil will therefore depend entirely on your preferences. Cannabis oil is often associated with various positive effects on human mental and physical well-being. However, no official studies have yet been presented on this topic, and we of course recommend that you contact your doctor before taking any CBD oils or other products. How to obtain CBD oil by extraction? As for example peanut oils, there are different types: hot extracted or cold pressed, refined or not, etc… This is the same principle that applies to CBD oils . It all starts with the extraction of the oil, and to do this, there are 2 types of extraction:
  1. CO2 extraction: During this process, the biomass (plant material) is filtered through a series of chambers to isolate the different cannabinoids and terpenes at different temperatures (all of which are controlled using CO2, hence the name of this method). They are then literally squeezed out of the plant with strong pressure. It is, to date, the most widely used extraction method because it makes it possible to isolate and remove undesirable components in the plant without leaving any residue.
  2. Solvent extraction: This process is clearly less expensive than the previous one. It consists of injecting a solvent (mostly ethanol) into the hemp plant. The latter dissolves the cannabinoids to be able to extract them from the plant. The mixture is then subjected to evaporation which leaves only the plant compounds.
Oil production following extraction Once the raw hemp oil is extracted, the product must be packaged for consumers. This is a winterization and/or insulation process. The process used is determined by the type of end product desired.
  1. Full-spectrum CBD oil: Winterization removes waxes and other impurities. This leaves broad-spectrum or full-spectrum CBD oil. This contains a wide range of cannabinoid acids (decarboxylated precursors of cannabinoids) / cannabinoids (carboxylated cannabinoid acids) such as THC and Cannabidiol, terpenes and flavonoids.
  2. Cannabinoid isolates: Raw hemp oil is put through a process called centrifugal partition chromatography (CPC) where all other components are removed, leaving approximately 99% pure Cannabidiol or other cannabinoid isolates. .
The effects and benefits of using CBD oil We remind you that this passage is for guidance and information purposes, and that in no case do we invite you to consume it. Once again, it is imperative that you consult your doctor before using these products. The scientific community agrees that CBD has analgesic properties. It helps reduce pain and inflammation by controlling and suppressing the α3-glycine receptors that cause the sensation of pain. CBD can also have an immunosuppressive effect, which helps reduce inflammation and pain. It can also help treat certain cancers, by killing certain cancer-causing cells, and reducing the size of tumors, by regulating the expression of the Id-1 gene. Regarding anxiety and depression, CBD stimulates serotonin levels in the brain, and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). It also appears to stimulate neurogenesis in the hippocampus, the part of the brain regulating emotions and mood. Thus, CBD could help calm anxiety and stress as well as make depressive periods more bearable. In the same way, CBD oil can help you fight insomnia and make you sleep better. How many drops and how to consume them? Although we do not yet have clear and reliable data on the dosage of the oil, the medical profession, confirmed users and empirical experience seem to indicate that it is better to “start small and progress slowly”. This usually means starting with 25 mg of CBD twice daily, then gradually increasing this dose by adding 25 mg every 3 to 4 weeks until the expected effects are achieved. Are there any side effects? Being a product considered non-narcotic, there is no evidence of this harm observed on the human body. However, users may react differently to the effects of CBD. Some of the known side effects may be: dry mouth, mild drowsiness, dizziness and dizziness, and diarrhea. It is therefore important to talk to a doctor before using it.
