It’s named ‘Cannabidiol’ as it’s derived from cannabis plant famously known as marijuana plant or in scientific language, Cannabis sativa. Over 100’s of chemical compounds are extracted from the marijuana plant and this CBD is one among them.

Mostly all of the compounds extracted from this plant are known to cause a sense of getting high or drugged like THC compound, but this CBD is not psychoactive and doesn’t give you a high-on-narcotic effect, instead it has the capability of healing a lot of ailments. And this healing quality makes it a great deal for those who want an analgesic (pain-relieving) effect but doesn’t want any drowsiness or mind-altering effects.

Extraction:

CBD is directly extracted from the Marijuana plants.  There are many known ways of extracting it but most commonly, Apeks CO2 extraction system is used which utilizes CO2 (carbon dioxide) as a solvent for extracting the oil. Mixing up with solvent is later followed by distillation that’s used to isolate individual compounds from the mixture. And then, distilled compounds are processed via Winterization that removes all the unwanted extracted compounds and lastly, Short Path Distillation is applied which further refines the CBD extract by separating compounds by treating them at boiling temperatures. Each compound has a unique boiling point and thus all the compounds are isolated from the mixture. Winterization uses cooling to separate fat and waxes etc where as short path distillation use boiling temperatures for extraction.

Major Benefits and uses:

CBD is speedily gaining momentum in the world of health and fitness as now some scientific studies have confirmed that it’s capable to treat chronic pains and anxiety or other psychiatric issues.

Analgesic or Pain Relieving Effect: Probably the most common use of cannabinoids is analgesic. If I try to simplify medical methodologies in layman language, I would interpret it as there’s a whole system in our body named as Endocannabinoid system or ECS which is responsible for pain, immunity, and appetite, etc. In our nervous system, there are, you can say, some charges that bind to the receptor of this system and give us a sense of pain in response to stimuli (reaction or source of pain). CBD helps to relieve pain by attaching to the receptors and blocking pain signaling and thus reduce inflammation & pain.

Anti-depressant: Psychiatric illnesses are usually tough to target and treat. Their drugs like benzodiazepines come with a bundle that’s packed as a source of many other illnesses and disturbances. Those who seek herbal approach for their psychiatric illness have reported a huge benefit from CBD oil.   

Other major benefits are Acne reduction, Neuroprotective benefits, CVS (cardiovascular system) health and symptomatic treatment of cancer. Some of the benefits are backed by scientific evidence and researches whereas some are still under observation but have proved their worth among people of many nations and communities.
