The Emergence of CBD Oil

Emergence of CBD Oil

Beginning in the 1980’s marijuana cultivators worldwide were on one mission: to grow the most potent, most psychoactive cannabis on the market. Because of this, plants that were rich in other cannabinoids like CBD (THC’s non-intoxicating counter part) were considered “garbage crops.” That was the case until news about CBD’s potential exploded on the cannabis scene, suddenly destigmatizing the “stoner-centric” industry.

Today “CBD Oil” is searched on Google an average of 200,000 times each month. On the cusp of conjuring its own revolution, this hot product is catching the attention of millions of people all over the world, who are curious about the benefits of cannabidiol paired with the ease of consumption, accurate dosing, and overall effectiveness that CBD oil offers.

So how is CBD oil made and what is important to know before choosing a product? We answer these questions and more below.

How is CBD Oil Made?

CBD oil can be extracted from marijuana plants (which are typically high in THC) or industrial hemp plants. For legality purposes, The CBDistillery uses the stalks and stems derived from non-GMO, pesticide free, industrial hemp plants.

Hemp plants are grown similarly to marijuana plants but are typically tall and thin and compared to marijuana plants which are short and wide. Once cultivated, hemp plants are lifted from the ground and brought to an extraction facility. C02 extraction is not the only extraction method but one of the most popular and cleanest ways when extracting CBD for human consumption. CO2 extraction involves filtering hemp plants through a series of chambers that control temperature and pressure. When different temperatures and units of pressure are applied to cannabis plants, this sophisticated system not only separates the various cannabinoids from each other, but it also can isolate the desired compound for extraction and use. Once this potent oil is extracted, it is mixed with a carrying oil such as aforementioned MCT Coconut oil.

What is Full Spectrum Oil?

Some CBD oil products on the market are limited to CBD explicitly while others advertise their product as “full spectrum.” The CBDistillery’s CBD oil is one of the full spectrum products containing other essential cannabinoids like CBN and CBC.

Why do we include these other compounds? A wider range cannabinoid spectrum is important because it encourages the entourage effect, which helps to stimulate the endocannabinoid system and the molecular interaction. Simply put, the entourage effect is the scientific belief that cannabinoids have greater therapeutic benefits when acting together rather than acting as a single molecule.

How is CBD Oil Used?

One of the reasons CBD oil is such a highly sought after product is because of its ease of use. Cannabidiol oil is meant to be consumed orally and most often used sublingually. Sublingual administration involves placing drops under your tongue and holding it there for several seconds before swallowing. Using CBD sublingually is the second fastest form of consumption (the first being vaping or dabbing).  Some find the taste of CBD oil very appealing while others do not prefer the hemp flavor. For those who are not fond of the taste, drops can be placed in a beverage like orange juice or foods like salad dressing to dilute the taste. *The CBDistillery is unable to make dosage recommendations and suggest doing further research at
