The difference between CBD Oils and other plant extracts lies not only in their properties but also in their source. The CBD content in the oils are derived from a single plant, with the CBD extracted by a very special process, which is called ‘solvent extraction’. This is a method that is completely different from what is normally used in other plant extractions such as the cold-pressed method used in the US.You may want to check out CBD Oils for more.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a highly concentrated phytocannabinoid found in 1940 in a variety of hemp plants. It constitutes approximately 40% of a plant’s total extract and is among the most powerful of all known cannabinoids. This has led to its being called a ‘super-cannabinoid’. However, it does not behave in a similar way to many of its peers, as it has very strong anti-anxiety effects on humans. It has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it useful in treating a wide range of conditions including fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, depression, anxiety and cancer. Additionally, CBD has been shown to be effective in treating epilepsy and neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s.
However, when CBD is heated up in a solvent, it changes into cannabinol (also known as THC). This substance has a high concentration of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and is therefore illegal to possess under certain circumstances. In most instances, the pure CBD is not even present, due to the presence of several other contaminants, many of which are completely safe. This is where the solvents come in. Solvents are used to extract CBD from the solvents in order to create a high concentration of CBD in a solution, which can then be taken in pill form.
