CBD Oil has got more attention in recent days due to some useful research studies on it. According to the results of these research studies, CBD Oil has many potential health benefits and therapeutic uses. CBD (Cannabidiol) itself is a cannabinoid compound present in the cannabis or hemp plant. CBD Oil is extracted from the hemp plant and used for the treatment of different diseases and medical conditions like
- Chronic Pain
- Arthritis or any kind of joint pain
- PSTD (Post-traumatic stress disorder)
- Inflammation Conditions
A research study in 2018, have reported that CBD Oil has non-psychoactive and non-toxic properties. It means it cannot produce any kind of “high” or hallucination effects. For this reason, CBD Oil cannot cause overdosing as well. These properties of CBD Oil have increased its medical importance. Now a large volume of research is ongoing on the health benefits and therapeutic uses of CBD Oil.
Our today’s article is for newbies of CBD Oil. We will discuss different types of forms of CBD Oil and how you can use them.
Different Types of CBD Oil
Many people think that CBD Oil is only a one-type CBD product. Some people even use the term CBD Oil for common CBD products which is not right at all. According to the nature of the compounds and cannabinoids present, CBD Oil is divided into three major types: Isolate CBD Oil, Full-Spectrum CBD Oil, and Broad-Spectrum CBD Oil. We will discuss these types of CBD Oil separately now.
v Isolate CBD Oil
Isolate CBD Oil is the purest form of CBD Oil as it contains only CBD (Cannabidiol) contents. It does not contain any other cannabinoids, fatty acids, and terpenes, etc. Most of the brands cell CBD Oil in the form of crystals or powders while some of them sell it as Oil.
For the preparation of Isolate CBD Oil, some extraction methods are applied to the standard CBD Oil. Winterisation is a chilling process that is utilized for the preparation of Isolate CBD Oil specifically. In this process, the CBD Oil extracted from the hemp plant undergoes chilling which removes all other cannabinoids and chemical compounds from it.
Isolate CBD Oil is particularly used for CBD Oil vaping while in the form of crystal or powder, people take it sublingually (By placing it under the tongue). Isolate CBD Oil is completely free of THC content and hence you can get maximum benefits from it without any side effects. The only downside of CBD Oil is that you can miss out on the potential entourage effect through it.
v Full Spectrum CBD Oil
Full Spectrum CBD Oil is also called raw CBD Oil because it contains all the compounds and cannabinoids present in the hemp plant even THC content. It is considered as the impure form of CBD Oil. It contains all the cannabinoids (Including THC), terpenes, and fatty acids that naturally present in the hemp plant including CBD (Cannabidiol). You can take as it whole hemp plant extract.
As we have mentioned that Full Spectrum CBD Oil has THC contents as well, it has mild psychoactive properties. It means the Full Spectrum CBD Oil can produce some mild “high” effects but not dangerous for health.
The Full Spectrum CBD Oil has very strong healing properties. For example, the terpenes present in this type of CBD Oil have strong anti-inflammatory properties. According to a research study in 2005, Full Spectrum CBD Oil is the best CBD product from a medicinal perspective.
v Broad Spectrum CBD Oil
Broad Spectrum CBD Oil is just like Full Spectrum CBD Oil but the only difference between them is THC contents. Unlike Full Spectrum CBD Oil, Broad Spectrum CBD Oil does not contain even traces of THC contents. So, you can expect that Broad Spectrum CBD Oil will not produce any kind of “high” or hallucination effects. You can get maximum benefits from this type of CBD Oil without any tension of psychoactive effects.
Broad Spectrum CBD Oil is very difficult to found because a very low number of manufacturers prepare it. The places where THC is banned, the Broad-Spectrum CBD Oil is the best choice.
Different Forms of CBD Oil
CBD Oil is available in different forms in the market. The most common form is liquid. It is very easy to use in liquid for by sublingual method. You just have to place 4-5 drops of it under your tongue and it will do everything automatically. If you don’t want to taste the bitterness of CBD, you can spray CBD Oil on your meal or mix it with drinks. However, if you want to get quick benefits from CBD Oil, vaping is considered as the best method.
In CBD Oil vaping, the Isolate CBD Oil is converted into the vapors by using CBD vape pens. CBD Oil through vaping can produce its effect even in a matter of minutes because it directly enters the bloodstream through the lungs. The only downside of the CBD Oil vaping is the susceptibility to contamination. As the vapors pass through the air before entering the body, the chances of contamination are high.
For chronic pain outside the body, CBD topicals are available in the market. These topicals are available in the form of lotions and creams. You can apply them on the part of the body where you are feeling pain.
