CBD Oil, Cannabidiol or Phyto cannabinoids

It is becoming very popular, but what do we know about it? Which CBD oil is better, which one is best or worst?

CBD stands for cannabidiol and is harvested from the seeds and stalk fibers of Cannabis sativa, otherwise known as hemp.

Marijuana would mean it is containing psychoactive compound THC, harvested from different strain, Cannabis Indica strain while Hemp only contains CBD, and extremely low in in psychoactive compound, THC. Marijuana contains CBD and other chemicals, such as THC, which makes people high. Phyto cannabinoids directly interact with cannabinoid receptors in the body, much like a lock and a key. The cannabinoid receptors are part of a unique communication system in the body, known as endocannabinoid system. This system is laced throughout the central nervous system and is distributed among peripheral tissues including the immune and reproductive system, gastrointestinal tract, brain cells, endocrine glands, arteries, lungs and heart.

Phyto cannabinoids have been studied for their potential health supportive effects on the nervous.

The strongest scientific evidence comes from managing childhood epilepsy, not responding to antiseizure medications. CBD was able to reduce the number of seizures, and in some cases it was able to stop them all together. Videos of the effects of CBD on these children and their seizures are available on Internet for viewing, and they are striking.

-CBD helps protect the brain and nervous system by supporting balanced neurotransmitters, proper brain stimulation, and activity. It is commonly addressed to reduce anxiety and for the patient who suffered through the misery of insomnia, CBD oil may help to have a restful sleep.

-European studies demonstrated that CBD oil helps inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to control.

-The digestive track appears to have high levels of endocannabinoids. Thus, photo cannabinoids my help to support healthy gastric motility (movements of food through digestive system) as well as healthy appetite.

How safe is CBD oil?

CBD oil might have side effects such as nausea, fatigue or irritability.

CBD can increase the level of the blood thinner Coumadin, and the raise the level of other medication the same way grapefruit juice does A significant safety concern with CBD is that that is primarily sold as a supplement, not a medication it’s not regulated for safety and purity by FDA.

So, you can’t know for sure that’s the product you buy has the active ingredients as listed on the label or it may contain other (unknown) elements. There is also unknown what is the best effective therapeutic dose of CBD for any particular medical condition.

CBD oil can differ by their content.

-Full spectrum CBD is an extract that contains all naturally occurring plant compounds, including terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids.

The full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oil extracted from the plant work together to magnify the therapeutic benefits of each individual cannabinoid. This is commonly referred to as the

“ entourage affect”.

The 2005 study from Lautenberg Center for general tumor immunology in Jerusalem showed that full spectrum CBD provides higher levels of relief compared to CBD isolate.

Also, that results showed that full spectrum CBD provided enhanced effects with higher dosages, while the effects of isolate CBD maintain consistent with increased dosages.

The “entourage effect” enhances the product’s health-promoting effects, meaning theoretically smaller amounts can be used to elicit greater benefits. Thus, the entourage effect is vital for ensuring robust Phyto cannabinoid action.

-Isolate CBD oil is the purest form of CBD, produced by removing all other compounds found in the plant including terpenes, flavonoids, plant parts, and other cannabinoids.

-Broad spectrum CBD is a bit of a mix between full spectrum CBD and CBD isolate. Like full spectrum CBD the other compounds found within the extract are preserved; however, like CBD isolate THC is completely removed.

Several labeling inaccuracies have been reported. After analyzing 84 CBD products, one group of researchers discovered that nearly 43 percent contained more CBD than advertised.

That’s why it’s important to select a reputable company. These companies will offer lab results from third-party testing and be available to answer your questions.

Beware of any company that promises extreme results, remember that results may differ. A product that works well for a friend or family member may not have the same effects for you.

Sourcing & Purification: In the wild, Cannabis plants easily absorb and accumulatevarious toxins including chemicals such as pesticides, heavy metals, molds and bacteria. Therefore, a controlled growing environment is vital for quality and purification.
