CBD Oil vs Cannabis Oil, What’s The Difference?
So I’ve been asked this question so many times that I almost feel like a broken record explaining it. Although since I love what I do, I do not ever mind to help a person out, even if it’s just some information that they need. On the following page, I will break down all the difference between what is known as ‘CBD Oil‘ and what is know as ‘Cannabis Oil‘. They are not always the same, in fact they can be very different and the effects of taking them can be very different too. Please do your research thoroughly before taking anything, even if it’s prescribed by a doctor. Just as a quick reference note, a true CBD Oil will NOT give you any ‘euphoric high’ while Cannabis Oil very well MAY give you a ‘euphoric high’ or even a ‘couch lock’ sensation, again it depends on the beginning material and the process(es) you use to make your oil.
OK, so what’s the difference between CBD Oil and Cannabis Oil? Well first off, CBD is a compound or substance that is extracted from the hemp or marijuana plant. It’s not the plant itself, it’s one of the compounds or substances that can be extracted. CBD Oil, on the most part, contains no THC (another compound or substance found in the marijuana plant; Female plants with flowers will have a much higher content of THC than a Male plant). THC is the substance that gives you the ‘high’ when consuming or in-taking marijuana or a derivative of (oil, butter, etc). To sum it up generally, CBD Oil is a health cure for multiple ailments and it has been around for ages, although it has just recently been started to be made at home. CBD Oil, or aka Hemp Oil with a rich source of Cannabidoil, is now known world wide as being an incredible healing tool and is being sold through out the United States alone like wild fire. It’s an all natural healing medicine that people use for a wide range of issues; Anxiety, Psoriasis, Glaucoma, Cancer, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Seizures, Tumors, Insomnia …. It can be taken orally, anally, as a salve or lotion, cooked into food or infused into just about anything …. (…continued below…)
What EXACTLY is CBD (Cannabidoil) ?
To be more accurate and a bit of a geek, here is what CBD Oil is when broken down to look at :
Cannabidiol, aka CBD, is an all natural substance that has recently come into the headlines for a multitude of good reasons. CBD is extracted and separated from specific varieties of cannabis, often known as hemp. Chemically, CBD is one of 85 chemical substances known as cannabinoids, which are all found in the cannabis plant. CBD is the second most abundant compound in hemp, typically representing up to 40% of its extracts. Although there is constant confusion from here on. CBD is not the only extract that exists, there is the THC component, an euphoric and (mostly) illegal substance that is responsible for causing marijuana users to get “high” or feel an euphoric effect.
While CBD is completely separated and isolated from THC and CBD cannot get you “high,” there is still a lot of stigma as many people tend to mistake CBD for THC. These fears, though unfounded, are understandable to an extent, especially since the terminology surrounding CBD can be very confusing. Either way, it is impossible to get “high” by smoking or ingesting CBD-high hemp (that has only traces of THC), as it is also impossible to get high by consuming CBD oil products (that contain virtually no THC).
CBD is extracted in oil form and is often found mixed in hemp oil extracts in varying concentrations. It is a relatively new food supplement that is still being researched, and while the initial results are promising, there is a lot of doubt, misinformation, and sheer confusion surrounding it.
Recently, CBD oil has become an accepted means of relaxation, and the substance’s popularity is rising fairly rapidly. As the use of CBD oil is very new, there are still significant gaps in what we know about its effects. While we can confidently say the substance is safe and legal, its exact benefits are still an issue of hot debates and fervent research.
