What is CBD Oil? CBD is simply the abbreviation for CBD, one of the many active ingredients present in the cannabis plant kingdom. In this case, “cannabidiol” is derived from the Latin word” Cannabidum,” which means “little plant.” Besides being the name CBD Oil of the ingredient itself, CBD can also be used as a nickname for “Cannabidiol,” which is exactly what it is – a plant extract that is in the marijuana family. However, unlike THC, CBD does not have any psychoactive properties (as is true for THC).
The reason why CBD is called “Cannabidol” instead of THC is because it doesn’t contain any psychoactive compounds. Instead, it has the medical properties of an endocannabinoid system, which is present in the body and responsible for the relaxing, calming and constricting effect that our bodies experience during a full sleep cycle. Cannabidol, however, does not act like an endocannabinoid system but rather acts as a CBD sensore (a cell that sends signals to other cells). That means CBD is different than THC.
Why is CBD better than THCA (Trigma) in terms of which is better for you? In short, THCA does nothing more than dilute the active CBD oil with water; CBD on the other hand is a more complete process. THCA cannot help you relieve pain, improve your appetite or assist with sleep. On the other hand, CBD works all of those things because it is a complete entourage (of sorts) of cannabidiol and THC.
To understand why CBD is better than THCA, you must first understand how CBD works. When you consume cannabis, the psychoactive substance is THC. However, CBD can act like an endocannabinoid system (that controls your autonomous nervous system) so that instead of THC entering your body, CBD will. The difference between CBD and other similar substances is that CBD cannot get absorbed through the lungs and is only produced by the liver. So when you consume CBD oil, it gets metabolized into THCA through the liver, making CBD oil less likely to react with any THC in your system.
But there are some potential side effects to CBD consumption. Like other pharmaceuticals, the psychotropic (mind altering) qualities of CBD can lead to hallucinations. If you’re taking CBD for anxiety/anxiety, depression, etc, you don’t want to have a bottle of oil handy to “quickly pop” into your mouth. Many people report that prolonged use of CBD oils can lead to paranoia, which is, of course, another serious side effect.
But the main problem with CBD oil is that it’s difficult to get it if you want high-potency oil that has fewer or no side effects. The low-potency oils can still have some serious downsides to them, including possible interactions with other substances and potentially damaging the liver. Many growers don’t test their plants for CBD levels, so the only way to know how potent the CBD oil is to buy it from a third-party tested lab. Unfortunately, most labs don’t test for CBD levels because it’s not profitable to do so.
To figure out the CBD potency of a CBD extract, a lab needs to analyze both the CBD itself and the plant material used to grow it. By isolating the pure CBD from the source material, we ensure that it’s going to be at the highest potency possible and then determine how much of that CBD has been diluted with other elements. Once the CBD potency is determined, then it’s up to a lab to dose a standardized laboratory product such as a drop or cap to test the CBD oil for side effects.
When buying CBD oils online, make sure that you’re getting the “real thing”. Don’t buy oils just because they have cute fancy packaging. Investigate each of the ingredients and make sure you’re buying a reliable product made from high-quality, pharmaceutical grade pharmaceutical ingredients. Labeling should be clear and easy to understand. If there are any intriguing side effects, it should be explained in the label (or included in the description of the item’s website) before purchase.
