What is CBD?
New products undergo extensive scientific research before being used as health products. CBD is an extract of the hemp plant.
More recently, a new product has become available. This is a pure form of cannabidiol, an extract of Hemp Oil which can be purchased in crystal form or as a white powder.
CBD Isolate is extracted from non-GM Hemp and has been declared safe by the FDA.
The process of manufacture removes chlorophyll, oils and everything else leaving the pure product.
The benefits of using CBD, which is the essence of the cannabis plant, is that the verified medical benefits of the cannabis plant, especially in the treatment of MS, can be obtained without the “high” linked with the THC element of the plant.
CBD products can be effective against rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, bowel disorders, nausea and even have neuroprotective effects, and anti-cancer potential, according to research by G.W. Pharmaceuticals.
Scientific studies, conducted by Dr. Sean McAllister, from the Pacific Medical Centre, San Francisco, has shown that CBD oil has the potential to inhibit and diminish breast cancer cells, although further research is needed.
In its pure form, this product can be easily ingested once dissolved in edible oils such as coconut or palm oil.
Example is Oncali CBD MCT Oil. It is actually dissolved in coconut oil, and contains no sugar or carbohydrate.
Organic medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil is used and the the maker ensure it has no inorganic additives.
As much as CBD oil can be beneficial to your health, the production processes should be up to a global standard.
It should be purified, and quality ingredients should be used.
If you want to buy CBD oil, only purchase from a trusted brand.
The oil has gone beyond medicinal use, it can be added to cooking, smoothies, or salad dressings.
You can also take it directly under the tongue, vaporized in a vaporizer.
Full Spectrum CBD
Full-spectrum CBD contains additional nutrients, vitamins, minerals, proteins, fiber, flavonoids, terpenes, chlorophyll, and essential fatty acids that are stripped away in the Isolate manufacturing process.
The additional cannabinoids found in full-spectrum CBD are found to interact positively with the endocannabinoids found in the body, which regulate sleep, pain, and mood.
Clinical research has found that Full-spectrum CBD is more effective over a greater time-period and has more longer-term effects.
Researchers have concluded that the cannabinoids in FULL Spectrum have an entourage effect whereby they interact with each other to deliver a more powerful benefit to the human body.
Full-spectrum CBD naturally contains vitamins and minerals and is high in antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, and E.
This makes this product more useful for consumers who wish to improve their skin tone, protect against sun damage, improve the appearance of fine lines, and lighten dark spots on the skin.
These qualities ensure its usefulness for skincare products.
Full-spectrum CBD also contains magnesium, zinc, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, and iron and the Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) Omega-3 and omega-6, which are used to revitalize and build the skin, eliminate redness and moisturize the skin.
Both CBD Isolate and CBD Full Spectrum have a range of benefits.
Isolate may be the most effective in delivering high dosage cannabinoids effectively which is useful for those wishing to take it for medical reasons.
It can also be used in different ways, for example, for cooking and vaping purposes.
Full Spectrum CBD may be more useful for more general health care needs, and more effective as it has the additional benefits of vitamins and minerals, and undergoes less intensive processing during its extraction process.
