Hemp has been known among farmers for generations and has been extensively produced for industrial purposes and food production. Cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil, meanwhile, is a natural dietary supplement extracted from fiber hemp plants. It has a number of beneficial and natural components, such as terpenes and flavonoids, as well as valuable omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
A lot of hemp products are sold in shops despite ongoing controversies and concerns about hemp and cannabis in general. Cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil, in particular, has as many supporters as detractors all over the world.
What is CBD hemp oil?
The stems of the plant are for the production of fabrics, ropes, and threads. Meanwhile, the seeds are for the production of oils or food, as they are rich in healthy proteins. Hemp oil is simply an ordinary edible oil, which comes from the pressed seeds of the plants. For example, it is very suitable as an alternative to sunflower oil or rapeseed oil.
This is probably the second most important active ingredient in cannabis in terms of its properties and its presence in the natural product. It also has a number of beneficial properties. What is probably most important from the point of view of the availability of CBD oil is that this cannabinoid is not psychoactive in any way, which is why it can usually be legally traded without restrictions.
No solvents or chemicals
The unique supercritical CO² extraction method makes it possible to simultaneously produce a naturally pure and rich cannabidiol extraction that contains the full spectrum of health-promoting hemp ingredients. This process does not even require solvents or chemical components that could contaminate the end product.
Another advantage of this extraction method is that carbon dioxide is not able to extract heavy metals. This may still be present in the plants of origin due to poor soil conditions.
This means that even if the plants could have absorbed heavy metals from the soil or the air (which can easily happen with hemp because it has excellent properties as a natural filter), no harmful residues get into the final product during the extraction process. Thus, one always gets clean cannabidiol, which possesses microbiological purity.
Properties and effects of CBD
Due to the unique technological extraction method, CBD hemp oil obtained in this way also has a number of other beneficial and natural components: terpenes, flavonoids, and valuable omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
The properties of CBD hemp oil make it a perfect dietary supplement. Finally, the human body has many endocannabinoid receptors targeting cannabinoids. The nervous system, the immune system, the digestive system, and the cardiovascular system.
Receptors for cannabinoids are also present in the most diverse organs, such as the brain, heart, liver, reproductive organs or muscles. The presence of these receptors alone confirms the suspicions that cannabinoids can affect specific areas of the body.
Using CBD hemp oil
This increases the rate of absorption and thus the use of the effects of natural cannabinoids. The exceptionally mild taste and the gentle texture facilitate the daily intake of the substances.
Because of the individual characteristics of each user, age, weight, and metabolism. It is recommended that CBD hemp oil is initially used in quantities of two milligrams in two to four applications daily. It is also possible to gradually increase the recommended daily dose or to adjust the dose of CBD hemp oil according to your body weight and individual needs.
Phytocannabinoids naturally present in the oil have a soothing effect on the skin and have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. For this reason, they are also popular ingredients for many cosmetics and ointments.
