CBD is a compound found in the cannabis/hemp plant and is extracted using specific extraction methods such as CO2. CBD comes from the cannabinoid family and offers anti-inflammatory, neuroprotectant and analgesic benefits. Unlike THC, it does not produce any psychoactive effects.
It depends on who you ask! Cannabis and all cannabinoid-based products are listed as schedule 1 controlled substances. This basically means that all cannabis related products are illegal on a Federal level. Nevertheless, individual states have passed laws permitting the use of cannabis or cannabis oil. Each state has its own laws and regulations. For example, California is a recreational state, meaning that it can be used by state residents. Other states have permitted the use of CBD oil only for specific medical conditions.
Hemp CBD Oil is a different story. According to drugpolicy.org, products made from cannabis Ruderalis (or hemp), ” does not contain CBD in a high enough concentration to have a therapeutic effect.” Therefore in certain cases it is legal and can be shipped to all 50 states.
Well, if you live in a medical or recreational state then there is no problem. But, if you reside in a state that does not permit the use of medical cannabis then your only option is Hemp CBD Oil.
There are a few companies, such as PureKana and GreenRoads that have mastered the extraction process of CBD from hemp plants, creating amazing CBD oil products. These products can legally be shipped from state to state.
That is a tough one to answer as it depends on your individual needs, the medical laws in your state and the opinion of your doctor. It’s important to understand that Hemp Oil is NOT the same as cannabis oil, despite them being made from the same plant, just different parts and therefore have different levels of CBD and THC. Cannabis Oil is usually made up of between 5%-10% THC, while Hemp oil contains less than 2% THC. Only products made from industrial hemp and contain less than 0.3% THC are legal to sell, buy, consume, and ship. Trusted brands that sell Hemp CBD oil have mastered the extraction process. They produce pure CBD oil that is high in potency and can help with a variety of medical conditions.
CBD can be taken through numerous forms. Today, there is a wide range of CBD products including; CBD oil, tinctures, edibles, syrups and capsules. You can also vape specific CBD oils. There is a 98% absorption rate with CBD oil and tinctures because the CBD gets absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
It’s important to understand that there is currently no scientific research proving that CBD oil, in any form, can cure diseases. However, there are numerous case studies and testimonials from patients who have claimed that it has helped them with the following conditions:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Bipolar disorder
- Cardiovascular disorders
- Chronic pain
- Epilepsy (seizures)
- Huntington’s disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Nausea (emesis)
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Tourette’s syndrome

CO2 extraction is an extraction method that uses pressurized co2 to extract phytochemicals such as CBD, CBG, or terpenes, flavonoids, etc…
CO2 at particular pressures and temperatures acts like a solvent, without the threats of really being one. It is the most advanced extraction method today, and only a few Hemp and CBD companies have mastered the technique. Companies today conduct a variety of CO2 extraction methods including supercritical CO2 extractions, subcritical CO2 extractions and ‘mid-critical,’ which is a basic range between subcritical and supercritical.
Subcritical CO2 extractions longer and produce smaller sized yields than super-critical. They retain the terpenes, important oils, and other sensitive chemicals within the plant.
Supercritical is high pressure and heat procedure that harms most terpenes but can extract much larger molecules such as lipids (omega 6 and 3), chlorophyll, and waxes.
A perfect full-spectrum CO2 extract consists of a subcritical extraction, separating the drawn-out oil, and thereafter drawing out the very same plant material using supercritical pressure. After, those companies homogenize both oil extracts into one. This process is known as CO2 Total.
It depends on which CBD oil you are purchasing. If you are purchasing marijuana CBD oil, depending on the extraction process, the ration and the strain, there may be levels of THC which will give you the “high” effect. If you purchase hemp CBD oil, which contains extremely low levels of THC, you will not experience a high.
Absolutely. When choosing a CBD oil its important to check that the company extracts CBD from crops that are free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides. Make sure all products are tested using 3rd party labs and that the company you are purchasing from has no problem showcasing their lab results. The companies that also believe in their products will also have a money-back guarantee.
