Benefits of CBD oil are many. We who are older have always known the healing properties of cannabis. Whether you agree or not it is not disputable.
So what is CBD oil?
CBD is the abbreviation for Cannabidiol, one of the resinous molecules known as phytocannabinoids, found in the flowers, leaves and stems of the cannabis sativa plant. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and one of the two major cannabinoids, the other being THC, which does have psychoactive properties.
CBD is found in greater abundance in the hemp variety of cannabis sativa, which has a low THC concentration (below 0.3% as a legal standard). There are over 100 identified phytocannabinoids in the cannabis sativa plant.
To keep it simple there are three main component's of the distilling process.
Full Spectrum; Full-spectrum CBD extracts contain all the compounds that naturally occur in the cannabis plant, including trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). That’s the cannabinoid associated with the cannabis “high.”
Broad Spectrum; Broad spectrum CBD retains several of the different cannabinoids, such as CBN and CBG. And because the broad spectrum also uses additional terpenes and flavonoids, it can generate the entourage effect without THC. Even though broad spectrum CBD shares similarities with the full spectrum, it still has that one primary difference that separates it from the other. And you may decide to use broad spectrum CBD if you’re looking for whole-plant benefits without any THC content
CBD isolate; Your pure CBD product, isolate contains no other compounds found in cannabis, except for the CBD itself.
Depending on the dosage you take, you can expect CBD oil to help with the following. Pain, anxiety which also includes PTSD, depression, sleep, epilepsy, to name the main ones. If you live in one of the states where cannabis is legal, you will have more options as far as getting products that have THC in them. These may give you better or at least more options on the reason you are seeking these items.
