CBD oil is extracted from hemp plants that contain high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) and low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The extracts are in the form of a paste or in combination with hemp seed oil to reduce the consistency of the extract.
Hemp oil is just another term used for CBD oil. The difference between hemp seed oil and hemp oil is not properly understood and many people think the two are the same. Hemp seed oil is extracted from hemp seed only and is used as a food supplement as it does not contain cannabidiol or other cannabinoids.
CBD oil/hemp oil or other hemp products are all considered to be food supplements. Therefore, there are no restrictions on the production, distribution and consumption of hemp oil in the United States. CBD oil / hemp oil is legal in most countries around the world if it contains low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) molecules in some countries.
Въпреки че винаги казваме, че канабидиолът въздейства различно на всеки, отговорът е „не”. Конопеното масло съдържа главно канабидиол, съединение, което не предизвиква наркотично въздействие. Точно обратното, конопеното масло спомага за спокоен и бистър ум и поддържане на активен начин на живот.
All of them are actually cannabis plants. Still, “hemp” or “industrial hemp” is a term that refers to cannabis strains that contain below 0.2% THC. Marijuana in general is a word used for plants that contain high amounts of THC.
Years ago, people didn’t know anything about THC (that it is psychoactive) and were just growing cannabis and calling it hemp. It’s only in modern times that the definition of hemp refers ti low levels of THC.
When a cannabis plant is analyzed, it’s found to contain 1%-22% THC. Cannabis products can even contain up to 98% THC.
The CBD Oil/Hemp Oil contains CBD, Chlorophyll, Alkanes, Nitrogenous compounds, Amino acids, Sugars, Aldehydes, Alcohols, Ketones, Flavonoids, Glycosides, Vitamins and Pigments.
It has been discovered that cannabis/hemp plant contains over 400 molecules. Recent researchers point out that there is a group of molecules that cannabis produces – cannabinoids. They are the reason for its positive health effects. There are over 120 cannabinoids, including CBD, THC, CBG, CBC and CBN.
A famous cannabinoid is THC. It is psychoactive and makes people feel high. However, all of the products on our website have a high concentration of the cannabinoid CBD which does not make people feel high.
There are some scientific experiments that indicate that cannabinoids work in a similar way as the endocannabinoids that the human body already produces in healthy people. The mechanisms of action are still not clarified and there are no conclusive studies that show any clear pathways.
It comprises a vast network of receptors in the brain, central and peripheral nervous system and cannabis-like compounds called endocannabinoids.
It has been likened to a dimmer switch, constantly working to bring balance when there is too much or too little activity in the body.
Plant cannabinoids like CBD and THC interact with the endocannabinoid system, which researchers believe may explain some of the reported physiological effects of the cannabis plant.
Scientists also believe that when this system isn’t working correctly, disease can occur. This is known as Endocannabinoid Deficiency and could be at the root of many conditions such as migraines, fibromyalgia, IBS and multiple sclerosis.
Recent studies have demonstrated that active compounds from other plants such as Carrot (Daucus carota), kava (Piper methyscum), New Zealand liverwort (Radula marginata), Ginger (Zingiber officinale) and Black pepper (Piper nigrum) contain compounds which interact with the endocannabinoid system in a positive way.
Cannabinoids are a group of molecules that in general work in a similar way, interacting with the endocannabinoids system. There are some minor structural differences, but they all bind to the same receptors in the human body. Even though there is no affirmative proof, there is a lot of speculation in the scientific community that the small structural differences are responsible for the different side effects of cannabinoid on each individual.
THC is the cannabinoid that make people feel high and it’s this cannabinoid that is targeted in drug tests. CBD is very similar in structure, however the side effect of CBD is the opposite of THC. Unlike THC, CBD (Cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and does not make people feel high. In fact, CBD has antipsychotic effects which means CBD works in the complete opposite way compared to THC.
Scientific studies suggest that CBD also reduce the intoxicating effects of THC.
