Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychotropic compound found among the 100 cannabinoids in the hemp plant. With enormous therapeutic potential, CBD is being studied for providing relief from a variety of symptoms. Although hemp is a cousin to the marijuana plant, hemp will not get you high.
The human body is already equipped with an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that produces its own cannabinoids. The ECS is responsible for modulating our body’s immune system, inflammation, pain, and factors that affect our daily life like sleep, appetite and mood. The ECS is also found in most mammals, known as a effective alternative for dog and cat health. CBD activates the CB1 and CB2 receptors throughout the body to bring nutrition to the Endocannabinoid System. CBD is easily absorbed into your system and is commonly used for providing relief for falling & staying asleep, managing anxiety & depression, and arthritis & back pain.
CBD is a non-addictive natural alternative to prescription drugs. Products made from CBD Isolate contain no THC, ensuring no euphoric high and will not show up on a standard drug/urine test. Daily dosages vary from person to person dependent upon factors like tolerance and desired effect. It is important to pay attention to products labels, starting with the recommended dosage, and increasing/decreasing from there.
Hemp has low levels of THC and high levels of CBD. It is grown and manufactured for rope, paper, canvas, and clothing. The seeds and leaves are extremely nourishing and the oils are used for pain relief and management. Here at Blank Label, we use Oregon grown hemp that is particularly low in THC. Products made form our isolate contain 0% THC and our flower based products have less than 2% THC.
With high levels of THC and low CBD, marijuana buds and leaves are harvested for smoking and its oils harvested for vaping. It provides an euphoric high and can provide relief for pain management.
The quality of CBD oil is ultimately based on it’s source--where and how the hemp was grown. Hemp easily absorbs everything from the soil as it grows. If you are in the market for a good quality oil, Certified Organic is the way to go. This will ensure that you are not consuming contaminates like pesticides or mold.
Many companies use cheap methods that involve toxic solvents such as propane, hexane, pentane, and butane, which are flammable hydrocarbon gases. These solvents may leave unsafe residues that compromise immune function, or even cause cardiac and respiratory problems.
CO2 Extraction is the absolute leanest, safest method for extracting plants. Unlike the competing extraction methods, CO2 is also a sanitizing agent, which helps to prolong a product’s shelf life.
Full Spectrum CBD contains all phytochemicals originally found in the hemp plant including CBD, trace cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils. It may also contain trace amounts of THC, less than .03%. They work together to amplify each other through the entourage effect. This is also the least processed version of CBD but if taken in high amounts could show evidence of THC in a drug test.
Broad Spectrum CBD contains the entire spectrum of cannabinoids EXCEPT for the THC part, initially removed in the extraction process. Users will still receive the entourage effect, just without the THC.
CBD Isolate is the purest form of CBD. It is extracted from all other cannabinoids creating a highly concentrated substance per serving. Odorless and tasteless, isolate is highly versatile and able to be infused to a variety of products. This form of CBD could work best for someone who is sensitive to THC or users who were recommended to take very high doses.
