CBD oil, types and advice

Mag 4, 2023 | Cannabis Light | 0 comments

In recent years, CBD oil, or cannabidiol, is becoming increasingly popular due to its beneficial properties. This oil is extracted from hemp plants and can be used to relieve pain, chronic pain, anxiety, and muscle pain.

CBD oil is made from a combination of cannabidiol, a chemical compound found in cannabis sativa flowers, and hemp seed oil, which acts as a solvent for the CBD itself.

Its ability to reduce inflammation has made CBD oil a popular remedy for ailments such as arthritis, chronic pain, and acne. In addition, the use of this oil has also been shown to be effective in reducing the frequency of seizures in patients with epilepsy.

But how does CBD oil work in the human body?

CBD acts on cannabinoid receptors found in the endocannabinoid system, a system that controls body functions such as pain, mood, appetite, and sleep. CBD oil helps reduce inflammation and pain by increasing the production of endocannabinoids in the body, while at the same time inhibiting the production of chemicals that can cause inflammation and pain.

Despite its many beneficial properties, CBD oil is not yet a definitive cure for many diseases and disorders. Although it is considered safe and generally well tolerated, there are some situations in which CBD oil can cause side effects such as dry mouth, drowsiness, nausea and diarrhea.

Although CBD oil is obtained from cannabis, it should be made clear that it does not contain THC, the main psychoactive ingredient found in the plant. Therefore, the use of this oil does not produce feelings of "euphoria" or "high."

Types of CBD Oil

There are different types of CBD oil, each with unique characteristics and properties. Let's look together at the main types of CBD oil available on the market.

Full spectrum CBD oil

Full-spectrum CBD oil contains all the natural cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, including THC, CBD and other minor cannabinoids. This type of oil is considered the most effective because it takes advantage of the synergistic effect of cannabinoids, known as the entourage effect.

Full-spectrum CBD oil without THC

Full-spectrum CBD oil without THC contains all the natural cannabinoids of the cannabis plant except THC. This type of oil is ideal for those seeking the benefits of CBD without the psychoactive effects of THC.

CBD oil isolated

Isolated CBD oil contains only CBD and no other cannabinoids. This type of oil is ideal for those who are looking for a 100% pure product and want to avoid any trace of THC.

CBD oil based on minor cannabinoids

Minor cannabinoid CBD oil contains mainly cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN and CBC, along with CBD. This type of oil is ideal for those seeking a product that takes advantage of the specific benefits of these minor cannabinoids.

CBD Herbal Oil

Herbal CBD oil contains a mixture of herbs and plants along with CBD, such as turmeric, black pepper, and ginseng. This type of oil is ideal for those seeking the benefits of CBD along with those of other medicinal plants.

The choice of type of CBD oil depends on the personal needs of each individual. It is important to consult a physician before using any CBD product to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.

However, like all natural foods and products, it is important to store CBD oil properly to ensure maximum effectiveness and long-term storage.

If you are in the process of purchasing or have already purchased our oils, which are made with CBD extracts derived from our Hemp Sativa L plants, these tips may be helpful to you. 

The storage of CBD oil.

First, CBD oil should be stored in a cool, dry place. In particular, it is important to avoid exposed to direct sunlight or other heat sources. Exposure to light and heat can cause the oil to oxidize, making it less effective.

Second, it is important to store CBD oil in an airtight, air-free container. This will help prevent further oxidation of the oil and ensure its long-term freshness.

Avoid storing CBD oil in the refrigerator or freezer. Although CBD oil can be stored at low temperatures, extreme cold can cause the oil to crystallize, making it difficult to use.
