Cannabidiol—CBD—is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.
Scientific and clinical research—much of it sponsored by the US government—underscores CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, fybromyalgia, crohns disease, shingles, gout, psoriasis, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centres in the United States and elsewhere. Further evidence suggests that CBD is safe even at high doses.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MARIJUANA AND HEMP?
Marijuana and hemp are different varieties of the cannabis plant. Hemp otherwise known as industrial hemp is commonly used to produce textiles, clothing and rope and has a very high CBD content combined with a low THC content of typically less than 1%. These days, most manufacturers produce their CBD products using industrial hemp as this significantly reduces the cost of extraction and production.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD AND THC?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over a hundred active cannabinoid substances within the cannabis plant. However, Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is probably the most well known of these cannabinoids because of its psychotropic activity or psychoactive effect, which causes a sensation of intoxication in users. Cannabidiol ( CBD ) is not psychoactive and can dampen the psychoactive action of THC.
CANNABINOIDS VS CANNABIS
You may well be confused by the terminology, so what is meant by cannabinoids and how do they differ from cannabis? Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds contained within the cannabis plant. Cannabis, on the other hand, is the type of plant, of which marijuana and hemp are varieties.
WHAT IS CBD HEMP OIL?
CBD hemp oil is simply CBD oil that has been produced from industrial hemp. Most CBD oil tends to be CBD hemp oil because it is vastly more cost-effective to produce CBD oil from the hemp plant. The reason for this is that hemp naturally has a high CBD content and a negligible THC content while producing CBD oil from the marijuana plant would necessitate removal of the THC content, which would be a costly process.
WHAT IS HEMP SEED OIL?
Many experts consider hemp seed oil to be one of the most balanced nutritional oils found in nature. Manufacturers produce hemp seed oil by cold-pressing industrial hemp seeds and extracting the oil. It is a natural source of essential amino acids and omega-3 & 6 essential fatty acids but is virtually free of cannabinoids.
Here at PerfectCBD , we’re not selling a magic potion in a bottle. Our CBD oil is not a miraculous cure that will make illnesses go away overnight. We don’t sell drugs, and we’re not producing medical marijuana.
What we do offer you is a powerful dietary supplement with an impressive concentration of CBD, a product that is safe and is obtained through a decarboxylated hydrocarbon extraction technology that allows it to retain all the nutrients found in the original plant but with a more rounded and beneficial profile.
It’s the synergistic action of these nutrients that make CBD oil so valuable and beneficial for your overall health. We therefore encourage you to add this nutritional supplement to your diet in order to experience the positive effects of the phytonutrients found in our hemp-derived product.
WARNING: There are many cheaper CBD oils listed on eBay and sold locally on market stalls which have very misleading descriptions. For example, “15% Extract” is NOT the same as 15% CBD… for example, the extract itself may only contain 20% CBD which means a product listed as “15% Extract” may only contain 3% CBD. For instance, our own 20% CBD oil contains 2000mg CBD per 10,000mg bottle - i.e. 20% CBD. You should only trust CBD products which provide lab results guaranteeing the actual CBD content.
