How Pure Is CBD Oil?
Many people have become confused between CBD oil and THC oil. Both contain a similar fatty acid that passes through the body without being absorbed or metabolized into the blood stream. However, the CBD does not contain THC, since they are completely different chemicals. CBD is a derivative of the cannabis plant, hemp.
It has been used in Europe for many years as a medical treatment for a range of ailments. In the United States however, it has gained popularity mainly due to statements by former NBA star Dennis Rodman who used it to treat some of his painful muscle spasms. Hemp extract is similar to THC, but has less of an impact on the body because it lacks the plant’s psychoactive ingredient, THC. Therefore, when ingested, CBD tends to act in the same way as THC.
To answer the question, “Does CBD oil contain THCA”, the short form of this compound is “THC-HEX”. The long form is “THC CBD”. This is a lab-tested pure pharmaceutical grade product that is extracted from the heartwood of a tightly compacted and regenerated hemp plant under strict environmental conditions. It is one of the most pure pharmaceutical grade supplements on the market today and is guaranteed to be 100% all natural with no added synthetic ingredients or colorings.
Unlike hemp seed oil, which must be heated to make it usable, CBD is an extract that can be consumed directly from the source. When the plant material is picked, it is sun dried to prevent mold formation and then screened for fiber content and moisture content. The resulting oil extract is then treated with a binder to lock in the various essences of the woody plant material. This final product extraction process is done under high pressure and heat in a variety of air-cooled chambers to yield a superior pharmaceutical grade product.
As previously mentioned, THCA cannot be broken down by the enzymes in our bodies. It must be converted into its active form to be eligible for use in treating a variety of ailments. To do this, the active ingredient is infused slowly into the patient’s blood stream over an extended period of time. The exact time frame and amount of time will vary depending on the patient’s specific condition, but it is safe to say that the average patient will have a minimum of five ingestions over the course of a few weeks to achieve his or her desired therapeutic effects.
One of the key advantages of CBD oil is that it is considered “natural” and therefore not subject to the stringent federal guidelines and regulations that plague pharmaceuticals. By choosing to use only “generic” forms of this therapeutic herbal extract, you are not cheating yourself out of receiving the beneficial results from using the most effective products available. That said, there are a wide variety of CBD oils on the market and it is important that when purchasing them, you select those manufactured by companies that follow strict manufacturing processes to ensure that the product derived from the plants is pure and contains only trace amounts of the plant’s active ingredients. In addition to this, some manufacturers may use chemical additives and preservatives that actually inhibit the action of the THC. The best selection will contain only the highest quality, purest ingredients that have been tested and verified to be in compliance with the strictest standards.
