Cannabis and the Cannabidiol are trending right now.

Cannabis VS Cannabidiol; CBD oil vs Hemp oil.

Cannabis and Cannabidiol are trending now, why does this matter to all of us. So many people today are using cannabinoids to manage different ailments and for health maintenance. Some call it cannabis, hemp, marijuana, pot, weed etc. What are the differences? Are cannabis and marijuana the same? Is CBD oil the same as cannabis oil and hemp oil? These and many more we are going to discuss here.

Stay away from mind-altering drugs that make you feel good momentarily only to bring you down the next minute and make you want some more of the high feeling. This could ruin your life, your career and push you into making bad choices.

Hello friends, today we are going to look at some terminologies used in Cannabis industry and see how they are connected. As we know that cannabis, hemp, cannabidiol and marijuana products are trending now both in stock market and in business arena. Those of us that are using products of these plant species to manage health issues need to know “are cannabis and marijuana the same?” Is cannabis oil same as hemp oil? Is cannabidiol (CBD) oil same as cannabis oil? and so on.

As we noticed recently in the US, there is so much focus recently on these products because of recent legalization changes that are being made around the hemp, marijuana, cannabis use in some states. Before now cannabis, marijuana, hemp and all in that class were considered illegal drugs and were barned.

Now that some states in the US are beginning to legalize cannabis use due to its medicinal and health benefits, it becomes important for people to know the differences if any in the terminologies used to describe and discuss cannabis and its products.

Cannabis is a flowering plant that belong to the family of cannabaceae. The cannabis is of three species cannabis sativa (also known as hemp), cannabis indica and cannabis ruderalis.

The cannabis saltiva also known as hemp plant is mainly cultivated for its low level of THC which is the mind-altering psychoactive compound in cannabis that causes the high and addiction. Hence hemp plant is for non-drug use. It is cultivated for its CBD products and the terpenes. Hemp may have as little as 0.3% THC which is permitted since that is not sufficient to cause the high.

Marijuana is a specie of cannabis with over 0.3% of THC content. Marijuana because of its high content of THC can cause euphoria and dependence. Cannabinoids are compounds produced from the cannabis plants. The cannabis plant has over 480 identified chemical compounds that resemble the endocannabinoids in human body which are deemed beneficial to health. Cannabidiol, Tetrahydrocannabinol and the Terpenes are all products of cannabis plant.

Now we could say that cannabis is like the parent plant to hemp, marijuana and other species of cannabis. Hemp is a cannabis plant with little or no THC while marijuana is cannabis with high THC. Different species could be cross breed to produce plants with varying content of CBD and THC. Weed, pot etc. are the names associated with cannabis use especially in an informal (illegal) use of the drug.

Why the Noise about Cannabis recently?

In recent time Cannabis and its products have been in the headlines and mainstream media. Why? Cannabis is not new neither are the health benefits recently discovered. In the early 90s, it was discovered that the human body has what is called the endocannabinoid system.

This system implies that the human and other animals with vertebrae produces cannabinoids. These endocannabinoids have receptor cells scattered all over the cells of the immune system, the brain and the nervous system, reproductive, skeletal and digestive systems.

The functions of these endogenous cannabinoids are to regulate sleep, mood, motor coordination, appetite, digestion and hunger, strong immune defense system, pain control, temperature regulation, memory, boost fertility and the reproductive system and pleasure.

In a situation were there is imbalance either over production or under production causes shift in the systemic balance.

In the case of under production, the phytocannabinoids from the cannabis plant can replace the endogenous cannabinoids in the receptor binding sites. Cannabis produces relaxing and calming effect in the body.

The cannabis cultivars are the Terpenes which are the aromatic sweet fragrance oils found in the cannabis plant. It is also of health benefits, supplies the body with essential oils.

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil are one of the main component of the cannabis plant whether from hemp or marijuana but without THC as THC is another chemical component in cannabis. Cannabidiol oil is one of the endocannabinoids in the body that regulate body functions. Cannabidiol oil is found to be helpful in managing anxiety, depression, tremor, pain, inflammatory conditions, seizures, arthritis, stress, panic attack, migraines etc.

Having discussed what cannabis is, now we need to answer the questions on “is CBD oil the same as cannabis oil? CBD oil is made from cannabis plant but without the psychoactive component THC while cannabis oil could contain THC depending on the specie of cannabis plant the CBD oil came from. Pure CBD oil could also be made from marijuana by isolating CBD component of the plant from the THC component.

Hence hemp is not same as marijuana as hemp is cannabis plant with little to no THC and mainly grown for its high content of CBD products. Marijuana on the other hand has higher concentration of THC in its components and could be addictive.

Some people have said that using the whole plant extract is better and more effective than separating the product into its constitute chemical components. Some have produced it this way in their homes and use it in foods, drinks, juices, animal feed and pet food. I am not here to encourage or discourage this practices but know that whichever means or method you choice for your CBD source, play it safe and try it out first. Products with high THC and products with chemical contaminants could lead to severe chemical reaction or side effects.

CBD oil is not only good for humans it is also great for your furry friends and animals as these animals could suffer from pain and arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. Also pet animals do suffer from separation anxiety, irritability, aggressive behaviors and pain.

Cannabidiol has been found to contain anticarcinogenic properties which could either suppress  cancer cell growth or prevent its occurrence. This benefit is good for humans and animals as well.

When looking for CBD oil to buy for yourself or for your pet or livestock, look for organically grown, GMO free, pesticides free and verifiable products. There are some many in the market that it is becoming difficult to pick the right product. Look for products with pure quality CBD oil with low THC component.

CBD OIL: Testing for content Legitimacy and potency.

Why should we be concerned about the quality of the products that are flooding the market in the name of CBD Oil or CBD products.

Due to the current trend in CBD products and all the medicinal benefits acclaimed by researchers and manufacturers of the products. There are also written testimonials and recorded videos of CBD oil and other CBD products being excellent supplements for some health problems.

CBD Oil and CBD products in form of capsules, creams, spray etc. are flooding the market place all claiming to be the  real deal and undiluted.

How could the consumers figure out among these thousands of products that are easily purchased online, which ones are real organic and pure CBD oil or products that are actually made from organically grown hemp or marijuana plants?

The concerns grow as there has also been reports that some of the products may contain little to nothing of the agents they claim to be.

It is also worthy of note that none of the products has been verified or certified by food and drug administration, USDA or other government agencies that provide the seal of authenticity.

The Deal breakers

Though these products are not yet FDA approved, yet there are testimonies of the health benefits those products (the authentic) real CBD products have. Many testimonies from people suffering from pain of arthritis, chronic pain, mood disorders, anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, MS, seizures, tremors, pre and menopausal symptoms and all kinds of inflammatory diseases. See my previous posts on the health issues and the benefits of CBD oil without the high.

Some of the companies are strictly following manufacturing standard and ensuring that the products are pure, high quality and laboratory tested. Some also use high tech equipment that are costly to ensure quality product.

Ways to pick and filter out before buying CBD products.

Knowledge is power

Before you commit to spending your hard earned money on any product online. Do your research. Do not buy simply because you see it online and it comes cheap. Read about the company, their product and the product content and see if that is what you are looking for. Check out the product page and find out how the product was extracted. This is very important as that also determines the quality, safety, purity and credibility of the product.

Is it organically grown? This is important to know because those that are grown with chemicals for higher yield and fast growth will likely contain those chemicals in their content. These chemicals and pesticides will eventually end up in the product as contaminants.  Most of those chemicals could be dangerous to your health.

Look for third party test result analysis of the products.

Reliable lab results will analyze the components of the product and will even give an insight into the method of extraction. It will show if the product contains only CBD or with THC and the percentage present. It will show if there are contaminants, other chemicals and pesticides. This gives you insight whether the plant was organically grown as claimed.

Method of extraction is very important because that testifies to the quality, purity, credibility and safety of the product. It shows transparency by the manufacturing company as they let you the consumer know what you are getting and how it was produced.

For the testing and analysis to be carried out by third party that is not affiliated to the company will definitely produced fair unbiased result. This will enable the consumer to make the right decision.

Common methods of cannabidiol extraction

There are four main and common methods of CBD product extraction from the plant. I will not go into details to provide you information on how this methods are used as our goal is not to provide you information on how to extract but on methods of extraction that yields quality, pure strains of cannabidiol in order to assist you in making the right decision when buying CBD products.

Carbon IV Oxide extraction (CO2 method of extraction)

There are three main categories in using CO2 for the extraction process.

  • Supercritical

  • Subcritical

  • Midcritical

Among the three categories, the most commonly used is the Supercritical as it provides the purest and safest strains of CBD product. This method utilizes costly equipment to subject CO2 under high pressure to achieve the extraction of the products. The final product in this process is not denatured meaning that it still retains its natural components and maintain its natural state.

The Pros of using CO2 extraction method

  • It is the safest method of extraction in that CO2 is not harmful. It is a common additive to some foods and drink

  • It is an effective method in extracting the essential oils. This is for the fact that under high pressure CO2 is able to extract CBD and the essential oils (terpenes).

  • Provides higher quality yield better than some other methods.

  • The product is pure and has no contaminants (or minimally present) and no chlorophyll which could cause side effects.

Cons of CO2 method of extraction

  • The process uses an expensive equipment that is required to subject the CO2 under pressure for the extraction to occur. This could make it impossible for low scale producers or beginners to use it in their production.

  • This equipment requires training and technique to use. Therefore, if able to buy the expensive machine, still need to worry about training on how to use the machine as not to blow things up.

The Olive Oil extraction method.

This uses quality olive oil to carry out the extraction process. The hemp or marijuana plant is soaked in the olive oil for the product to extraction occurs.

Pros of using Olive Oil

  • It is a safe method and produces quality product
  • It is inexpensive and can be used for small scale production.
  • It does not require the use of an expensive technical equipment.

Cons of using Olive Oil method

  • Olive oil is a perishable product hence the end product of extraction using this process is perishable and must be stored in a cool dark place to maintain its potency.
  • The out put does not compensate for the labor put into it. The product though it has high quality but the output is poor.

Dry Ice method ( dry ice is a solid form of CO2)

Co2 is a gas under room temperature and pressure but when subjected under intense pressure and varying temperature could form solid. This solid form of CO2 is used in the dry ice process to extract cannabinoids and the terpenes.

Pros of using Dry Ice method.

  • It is easy to use and can be used by anyone who is interested in such method.
  • Produces clean end products
  • The yield using this process is better than using olive oil

Cons of using dry ice method

  • Dry Ice is expensive to make and is not readily available.
  • This process could lead to low quality depending on the knowledge and skill of the user.

Solvent extraction method.

Solvents are substances that are able to dissolve other substances for example water is a universal solvent in that so many other particles can dissolve in water. Also alcohol is a solvent as some particles can dissolve in it forming a homogenous solution.

Ethanol is a low grade or molecular weight alcohol and butane which is a hydrocarbon are commonly used solvents for cannabidiol extraction (MarijuanaBreak.com). In this process of solvent extraction, CBD and terpenes as well as chlorophyll are extracted from the plant. The chlorophyll could lead to unpleasant side effects if consumed.  The product could further be filtered to remove the chlorophyll but this will reduce significantly the potency of the essential oils.

Butane is a better solvent than alcohol and produces stronger oil than ethanol but is more likely to contain contaminants  from the solvent which could pose respiratory issues.

Pros of using solvents

  • It is good for some products. If the extraction is carried out using high grade alcohol, it produces better quality oil product.
  • The process of extraction is straight forward and easy to use.

Cons of Solvent extraction method.

  • Ethanol and butane are highly flammable and therefore presents high risk for fire hazard.
  • This method is potentially harmful due to possibility of solvents contaminating the product.

 

Endoca is one of the products I have used personally for my anxiety and depression and they produce raw hemp oil. The taste is good, vegetable like and uses dropper to measure the dose. It has products for different things and follows strict GMP standards. The products are lab tested for composition and quality. Endoca produces CBD oil, CBD capsules and pills, skin care, CBD extract, suppositories, cannabis crystals, CBD tinctures, and CBD edibles.
