CBD – what you should know
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 110 cannabis natural compounds belonging to the cannabinoid group. CBD is the most well-known cannabis fiber fiber (Cannabis Sativa L) and unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) it is not psychoactive, so it is not classified as narcotic substance.
What is CBD cannabis oil?
CBD Oil is a natural product consisting of Cannabis Sativa L extract, which contains naturally occurring phytocannabinoids (including CBD) and vegetable oil (most commonly used cannabis oil).
Unlike conventional cooking cannabis oil, the CBD cannabis oil, which, together with unsaturated OMEGA-3 and OMEGA-6 fatty acids, forms a natural extract with natural phytocannabinoids (including CBD), terpenoids and flavonoids that give it unique properties.
The best way to get the extract is to extract the CBD hemp seed oil with supercritical carbon dioxide, the so-called CO2 separation.
This unique method makes it possible to extract pure extract from cannabis, which contains, in addition to cannabidiol, other naturally occurring substances in cannabis – without the need for solvents or chemicals that may remain in the final product.
An additional advantage of this method is its selectivity, which allows the plant to extract cannabinoids and other fat soluble substances, but not contaminants such as fungi and molds, or even heavy metals that the plant can obtain from the soil or air.
Legislation concerning CBD cannabis:
According to the Drugs Act of 29.07.2005, cannabis plants are divided into two different types:
- Fiber Hemp (Cannabis sativa L.), which contains less than 0.2% THC whose cultivation and processing is allowed under certain conditions.
- Non-fibrous hemp (mainly Cannabis Indica) whose cultivation and processing is illegal.
Our oils are made entirely from Cannabis Sativa L (fibrous hemp) plants containing less than 0.2% THC and grown from EU-selected and certified seeds.
CBD Features and Effects
The properties of CBD cannabis oil make it perfect perfectly compatible with human body. The human body is equipped with endocannabinoid receptors sensitive to cannabinoids – these receptors are “adapted” to respond to all cannabinoids. The receptors of this endocannabinoid system are found in the nervous system, immune system, digestive tract and cardiovascular systems, as well as in organs such as the brain, heart, liver, genital organs and muscles. The presence of these receptors indicates that cannabinoids can affect these specific parts of the body.
