One of the most popular products in the CBD category that has been hitting the markets recently is CBD hemp oil. CBD, the cannabis compound can be extracted from cannabis plants but not all plant sources are regarded legal for extraction of CBD. The US law has clearly stated that CBD oil derived from hemp plants alone will be considered legal.
Before the surprising growth of the CBD industry, the term ‘hemp oil’ indicated the oil extracted from seeds of hemp plants grown for industrial purposes. Hemp seeds hardly contain any CBD. However, the term ‘hemp oil’ presently indicates CBD oil extracted CBD-rich parts of the hemp plant. The term ‘hemp seed oil’ is used to indicate the oils extracted by cold pressing hemp seeds.
Manufacture Of CBD Hemp Oil
CBD hemp oil is extracted by employing a suitable method of extraction like CO2 extraction or ethanol extraction. Some solvent extraction methods like the ones that use butane are suitable for small scale production of CBD hemp oil but the purity of the extraction method cannot be trusted completely, because butane is not good for human health. Any traces of it that remain after the extraction process can pose danger to the user’s health.
CO2 extraction is regarded as the purest form of extraction that is completely worth its high associated costs. The extraction requires expensive equipment but the purity and efficacy of the method are proven beyond doubt.
How To Use CBD Hemp Oil
Before you go ahead with the purchase on seeing a board that tells ‘CBD hemp oil for sale’, you should have a clear idea about the administering methods of CBD oil. Its high versatility allows more than one intake method. Let us take a look at them:
- Sublingual method: In this oral method of intake, the CBD oil is held under your tongue for a minute before you swallow it to allow the quick absorption of CBD into the bloodstream through your sublingual glands.
- Edibles: CBD edibles are popular as delicious CBD options that are on the high end of discreetness. You can prepare CBD edibles on your own by adding CBD oils to the dishes that you cook. Make sure that cooking temperatures do not degrade the quality of CBD oil.
CBD oil comes with a minimal number of ingredients in an attempt to retain its potency that could otherwise be affected by additional flavors. Lack of added flavors contributes an earthy taste to the CBD oil but its high strength compensates for its raw taste.
