In the following article we will deal with cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD), which, like the well-known tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) as well as many other cannabinoids and active ingredients, is contained in the cannabis plant. However, unlike the THC, CBD has no psychoactive effect, which is why CBD products – if the THC content is below 0.2 percent – are legally available. One of the best known products are the CBD CAPSULES.
Against which complaints can CBD oil be used?
The ingredients in the CBD oil can develop a broad spectrum of action, which is why they can also be helpful for various ailments.
Thus, the oil can provide relief with cannabidiol in the following diseases / complaints:
- Skin problems like acne
- Insomnia / sleep disorders
- Nausea / vomiting
- Stress / tension / anxiety / nervousness
- Headache migraine
- Crohn’s disease / ulcerative colitis / irritable bowel
- Inflammation / chronic diseases (eg arthritis or rheumatism)
- multiple sclerosis
There are now numerous studies showing that cannabidiol is effective against various conditions. We always report about this in our articles. Our ambassador Eva Imhof also successfully uses CBD oil for her migraine attacks.
How is CBD oil produced?
For the CBD oil primarily hemp flowers and leaves of the female hemp are used, which complies with EU legal standards. This is characterized by a low THC and high CBD content. The cannabidiol is obtained by the gentle and efficient CO 2 extraction process.
The so-called “supercritical CO 2” (carbon dioxide) dissolves the substances from the hemp under high pressure. In the next step, this pressure is lowered. As a result, CO 2 releases the extracted extracts so that the natural ingredients of the hemp plant are preserved. Decarboxylation then follows: The recovered materials are heated to convert the CBDA acid to the active CBD.
The biggest advantage of the CO 2 extraction process is that it preserves the entire spectrum of phytochemicals. The CBD oil contains not only cannabidiol, but also other phytocannabinoids, such as cannabinol (CBN), cannabis bromide (CBC) and cannabigerol, as well as valuable flavonoids and terpenes. In addition, the CBD oil can also contain the following substances:
Chlorophyll: The natural colorant chlorophyll supports cellular respiration and helps to detoxify and cleanse the cells. Accordingly, chlorophyll can also have a positive impact on the immune system.
Carotenoids: This is also a natural dye that gives the CBD oil the golden yellow glow. Carotenoids such as beta carotene are known to help prevent arterial stenosis, prevent premature aging, and have a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system.
Vitamins: CBD oil can contain various vitamins, especially vitamin E, which is often referred to as an “anti-aging vitamin”. As an antioxidant, vitamin E can also protect the body’s cells and have a positive effect on serotonin levels.
To facilitate the application, an extra oil is added to the CBD extract. Most manufacturers add hempseed oil here, giving the CBD oil a dark color and a slightly bitter taste. However, other manufacturers use coconut, olive or grape seed oil for further enrichment.
