Full Spectrum Organic Hemp CBD Oil
Our full spectrum CBD (cannabidiol) oil is extracted from organic hemp buds and flowers.
The oil is produced from naturally healthy hemp plants (cannabis sativa L) grown on traditional organic farms without the use of harmful insecticides and pesticides.
Whole plant hemp CBD oil contains a wide range of naturally occurring active compounds:
Pharmacologically active cannabinoids are primarily produced in the trichomes of hemp flowers.
Our full spectrum hemp oils contain a wide range of cannabinoids.
Cannabidiol (CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two most widely known but there are over 110 other cannabinoids present in the hemp plant:
Cannabidiol is one of the two best-known hemp oil compounds. It is currently being researched for many potential medical applications including inflammation, sleep disorders, epilepsy, arthritis, anxiety, eating disorders, depression and cancer.
Cannabidiolic acid is the precursor to CBD. When CBDA is heated by smoking, cooking or being vaporized, it is converted into CBD. CBDA has historically been regarded as "inactive" but is now the focus of research into its potential health benefits.
Tetrahydrocannabinol is best known for its psychoactive effects. It is the psychoactive cannabinoid responsible for the "high" or "stoned" feeling that most people experience when using illegal cannabis products."Wild" hemp (cannabis sativa L) usually contains a balanced THC/CBD ratio, but modern growing methods and selective breeding have resulted in an increase of super high THC strains. Some studies have suggested that high THC cannabis may trigger mental illness and psychosis. THC is currently used to boost appetite in patients undergoing chemotherapy. The low levels of THC in our CBD oil are not sufficient to cause psychoactive effects.
THCa is the precursor to THC. It is considered an "inactive" cannabinoid but is converted to THC by smoking, vaporizing or cooking.
Cannabigerol is a lesser-known compound which is the subject of many current research studies to assess any potential benefits.
CBGa is the precursor of CBG and like the other "acid" molecules, it is converted to its base molecule through a process of decarboxylation (heating).
Our CBD oil contains low levels of THC (less than .2%) and high levels of CBD.
It is not psychoactive and will not make you feel high, anxious or paranoid.
CBD will not cause you to fail a drug test and you will be able to enjoy your usual daily activities.
It is 100% legal to purchase and use in the UK and EU.
Hemp flavonoids (cannaflavins) are the compounds that give the hemp plant its colour.
Common hemp flavonoids present in full spectrum CBD include:
Cannaflavins play a role in preventing plant diseases, filtering harmful UV light rays, and also help to repel insects from the plant.
They are currently being researched to identify potential health benefits
There are over 200 terpenes present in hemp.
Terpenes are the natural, oily, volatile molecules which are responsible for giving full spectrum hemp oil its unique flavour and taste.
Some of the most prominent hemp terpenes include:
Myrcene - Imparts musk, citrus, and herbal flavours and aroma.
Caryophyllene - Spicy, cloves, and woody flavours.
Linalool - Floral, spicy, and sweet like candies.
Humulene - Earthy and woody overtones.
Limonene -Citrus (flavour of lemons).
Pinene - Sharp, pine, sweet (pine trees).
Researchers have discovered that terpenes interact with cannabinoids. They can work to block some of the effects of THC and can enhance and boost the benefits of cannabidiol.
The Entourage Effect
The entourage effect is a proposed mechanism whereby the active compounds in a plant interact with each other to produce an effect that is greater and more beneficial than the effect of the compounds if used in isolation. In the case of hemp oil extracts, the entourage effect may involve the interactions between cannabinoids, terpenes, terpenoids and flavonoids. Therefore it can only occur when whole plant extracts are used.
All hemp oil extracts for sale on cbdoiled.com are full spectrum, organic, whole plant extracts.
