The U.S. Food and Drug Administration moved closer this month toward evaluating CBD for human foods, topicals and pet products, but consumers and regulators still have unanswered questions about its safety.
5 relaxing ways to use CBD!
As more and more CBD products emerge, we’ve found that there’s quite a bit of confusion amongst consumers as to which kind of CBD they should choose.
With the rise of popularity of CBD (and THC products if you live in states where it is legal), a great deal of interest has surfaced regarding the Endocannabinoid system.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is available in many forms, including oils, tablets, and creams. The ideal dosages vary depending on both its form and usage. There is little research, though, so doctors are not yet able to confirm the safe, beneficial dosages for each use.
CBD or cannabidiol, a chemical compound of cannabis, is creating a wave of herbal revolution in the medical world. It has a promising ability to cure a wide array of diseases, both physical and psychological. The happy news is, some of the U.S states and other countries have legalized both recreational and medical cannabis, allowing the possibility for citizens to make the most out of the herb.
CBD most important ingredient: certified organic hemp. Once plants have matured, they are ready to be harvested and processed. Next, the terpenes, aromatic and therapeutic compounds, are retained from the flowers through a proprietary steam distillation process, followed by the CO₂ extraction of CBD. This process results in purified oils, that purposefully maintain a complex set of cannabinoids and full spectrum of terpenes present in the original plants. The CO₂ extraction which is being used on our oils, makes sure that there is complete control over the entire extraction process. With unique temperature and pressure settings, it’s possible to isolate exactly the compounds we’re looking for.
Some people have experienced that their CBD oil bottle sometimes leaks and the dropper unscrews. This can lead to oil leaking further into the neck of the bottle despite it being sealed. This, however, is not because the bottles are defective.
Here’s today’s fun fact: the word “canvas” is derived from “cannabis”. (And imagine if the two words had still been identical this past century or so: literature would speak of cannabis-covered deck shoes, of boy scouts enjoying their life under cannabis, of going cannabissing for your parliamentary candidate.) There is a simple reason for this etymology. Among the many uses of hemp, the plant from which the drug comes – uses that include ropes, clothes, food – was the fabric for the sails of ships.
CBD being a product of the cannabis plant often raises a lot of questions- including its legality and THC potency. Luckily, studies keep dishing out answers that are quite convincing and helpful on many occasions.
These worries are well warranted given the extraction of CBD and its association with cannabis, which is psychoactive compound that causes a high when used. So, how about we tackle some of these questions and put some perspective on the use of CBD oil?
