There is a lot of confusion about what CBD is and where it comes from. So we would like to dispel some of those myths.
Many people assume that CBD oil contains ONLY CBD, Whereas due to the CO2 extraction method, it contains other cannabinoids such as CBD, CBDa, CBG, CBN, CBC, plus terpenes and flavonoids to give the full entourage effect.
So CBD is extracted from INDUSTRIAL HEMP right?
Well it can be, but it’s not the only source.
CBD Oil can be made from both industrial hemp and marijuana as they are both the cannabis plant.
Lots of CBD oil is made using CO2 extraction. Is that the only method?
CBD Oil can be made using any extraction method. CO2 extraction is the best since it preserves the terpenes and flavonoids but requires expensive laboratory equipment.
So is it true that Industrial hemp has low THC?
Yes, this is generally the case. Industrial hemp is defined as having less than 0.3% THC. However when the extract is concentrated, these THC levels can increase above the 0.3% level. But without a lab test on the final product you really have no idea.
Many people have heard that CBD is good for epilepsy
It’s true there is some anecdotal evidence that CBD may be an effective treatment for epilepsy, but it also has anti-proliferative properties, which means it could stop cancer cells from spreading. Research is underway to support this using human trials.
CBD oil is legal everywhere in the world right?
Not quite.While hemp based CBD is legal in most places, CBD oil is not legal in every country. especially if it’s derived from high THC cannabis plants. Check your local laws to find out.
Is CBD oil just a Single molecule extract?
Some oils are. But if you want to enjoy a whole plant extract, try Endoca Raw CBD + CBDa full spectrum extract with over 400 active molecules made using Supercritical CO2. For legal reasons it contains no THC. But you do get the whole plant goodness.
