Do You Understand What Is CBD Oil?

CBD oil is a product created from cannabidiol, which is one of the many components of the cannabis plant, also known as hemp or the marijuana plant. Despite its controversial origin, CBD oil doesn’t contain the properties which cause the side effects typically associated with marijuana consumption. 

Tetrahydrocannabinol – also known as THC – is the component of the cannabis plant that causes hallucinogenic effects.

How CBD Oil is Made

CBD oil is made by extracting the cannabidiol from the cannabis, or hemp, plant. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways, including using carbon dioxide chambers to force the compound out of the plant or soaking the plant in grain alcohol or olive oil, which leaves the cannabidiol in a liquid state.

Single Compound vs. Whole Plant Extract CBD Oil

Carbon dioxide extraction, olive oil extraction, and alcohol extraction are effective methods of creating CBD oil. These types of extraction methods are referred to as single compound extractions since they isolate the cannabidiol in order to create pure CBD oil. Some individuals, however, prefer the whole-plant extraction method which uses, you guessed it, the whole plant. The biggest difference between single compound and whole plant extract compounds are the parts of the plant used:

Single Compound: Only the cannabinoid "CBD" is extracted from the hemp flower.

Full-Spectrum Extract: All cannabinoids including CBD, CBG, and more are extracted from the hemp flower, leading to an "entourage effect" where healing improves due to all cannabinoids working together. THC is a cannabinoid but is only present in small amounts in the hemp flower (as opposed to marijuana). Some CBD products go a step further and remove this minuscule amount of THC before bottling.
