All About Hemp
Learn about the wonderful plant known as hemp.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD is a cannabinoid which is part of over 50 components in the hemp plant. Although the hemp plant is the similar to a marijuana plant, it does not contain THC, which is the psychoactive chemical that makes you high.
Your body has built-in endocannabinoid receptors that are located in cells all over the body and used in things like appetite, pain, memory, and mental state. There are 2 receptors specifically, CB1 and CB2. The first type (CB1) is mostly found in the brain and the neurological system while the second (CB2) is usually found in certain blood cells and in the immune system.
How Does CBD Oil Work?
When using CBD extracts, the body uses the cannabinoids to activate physiologic systems, much like a switch. Chemicals in CBD are paired with receptors that create proteins, open/ close cellular channels, or send a message. It is because the body uses hemp extracts that we may get so many benefits relating to inflammation, pain, as well as psychological improvements.
How is it Extracted?
After hemp is grown and cultivated, the next step is extracting the cannabinoids. Two methods are typically used with different results. CO2 extraction is considered the gold standard, while Ethanol extraction is used for preserving the molecular structure and leaves the extraction in a lipophilic state.
Is Using CBD Safe?
While CBD is generally considered safe, it is always best to consult with a physician on possible side effects or reactions to any medications you may be taking.
