It’s no secret that CBD oil has become the most popular trend in the natural wellness space in recent years. Made from extracts naturally derived from hemp, CBD is known for its wide range of potential benefits and its overall ability to support a healthier and more active lifestyle. If you are looking for an all-natural alternative to improve your daily health regimen, CBD hemp oil may be just what you need.
If you’re shopping for CBD oil, please scroll up; our premium collection of organic hemp oils are right above.
However, if the history of medical cannabis oil, the discovery of CBD, or learning every vital tip about what you need to know before buying CBD oil online piques your interest, then please join us immediately below.
In “The Pot Book“, the book mentions how cannabis was used 5,000 years ago in present-day Romania.
Further, according to Raphael Mechoulam, a person who BioMedCentral.com exalts as “the father of cannabis research“, and a few of his colleagues stumbled upon and tested the first physical evidence of cannabis use, and it dates back to 400 A.D.
This is when it gets confrontational for our industry.
In the 19th and 20th centuries, the United State used Cannabis as a patent medicine and it was first described in 1850 as “Pharmacopoeia.”
January 1, 1940
Over 80 years ago, on New Years Day 1940, the University of Illinois published a study that shared their results of isolating Cannabinol, CBN for short.
The University was studying a Cannabis-sativa specific cultivar known as Minnesota Wild Hemp.
To their surprise, during this process, they found another chemical compound to which they proudly named, Cannabidiol (CBD).
Although Cannabidiol was found and given its name in the year 1940, it wasn’t until May 2, 1963 (23 years later) that the molecular structure of CBD was determined by none other than Dr. Raphael Mechoulam.
This is an incredibly important section covering the four different types of CBD oil that are currently being sold in the hemp industry.
The significance of not fully understanding the difference between each one of the four could very well lead to you buying the wrong strength and never truly experiencing exactly why CBD has changed the lives of millions of people worldwide.
“CBD oil is wildly popular for a VERY legitimate reason…“
Says Christopher Visser, Founder of Cannabidiol Life. He further states,
“I implore everyone to learn the difference between each type of CBD oil. Let’s look at Pure CBD Oil as an example. The word “pure” is very attracting as it insinuates a higher-quality and more effective product, right? Well, to most CBD consumers surprise, it is the LEAST EFFECTIVE out of the four types.”
Listed from the least to the most effective, here are the four types of CBD oil:
These four CBD oils received their names based on the following two factors:
Made with pure CBD isolate and usually mixed with either Non-GMO MCT oil, hemp oil, olive oil, or hemp seed oil. This is considered both the cheapest and the least effective cannabidiol oil out of the four, but it is still known to be effective when used in high dosages or simply as a daily wellness nutrient.
Quick tip, this is also the most common type of hemp oil that you will find online. Further, due to our higher standards of quality, we choose to NOT even sell this type of oil in fear that a first-time CBD buyer will not get the results they are looking for.
Broad-spectrum CBD is like a mix between full-spectrum CBD and pure CBD Isolate. Like full spectrum CBD, the other compounds found within the plant are preserved in the extract. However, virtually all traces of THC are entirely removed.
This is done to prevent any minor psychoactive effects a person could unlikely experience from a full-spectrum oil that they might not want. Broad-spectrum CBD still contains multiple detectable cannabinoids and can deliver enhanced benefits without the risk of psychotropic effects of THC.
Broad Spectrum CBD is best for individuals with conditions that pure CBD alone can’t seem to alleviate the issue the consumer is dealing with and adhering to the individuals with either a sensitivity to THC, individuals with strict occupational THC laws, as well as uncertain first time CBD users.
This is considered the highest quality and most effective type of CBD oil hemp extracts. It promotes the entourage effect by utilizing the wellness benefit potential of the entire industrial hemp plant; cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, & omegas are all found within.
With these types of products, you should be getting the following phytocannabinoids as well:
Full Spectrum hemp extracts are the only CBD products that contain Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Fear not, as the THC content is only offered in trace amounts and cannot surpass the legal limit of 0.3% THC.
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) allows this amount because users are not at risk of getting high. After all, the THC content is minimal.
This one’s easy; there is no such thing as “water-soluble CBD oil.” Water is not soluble in oil; therefore, deemed impossible. With that said, there is such thing as “Water Soluble CBD,” but for this to be accurate and true, it must be infused with a water-soluble liquid, not an oil. Water Soluble CBD is usually nanosized or homogenized with flavored water or juice.
Read our complete guide on the differences between Full Spectrum, Broad-Spectrum, and Pure CBD, here.
In a nutshell, CBD supports the proper functioning of your body’s ECS (Endocannabinoid System). This is an internal communication system in which all humans and animals have within. The primary job of the ECS is to promote homeostasis throughout your entire Central Nervous System (CNS) and your body’s Immune System.
The way the ECS accomplishes this homeostasis is by providing a fascinating, multi-step communication system for these two systems (CNS and Immune) and your brain.
When all messages are readable and communications are being relayed properly, homeostasis can be achieved. However, if for any reason the messages between these systems are not able to be forwarded to the brain correctly, this is when CBD comes in to fix and transcribe the broken messages.
By fixing the communication issues, CBD gives your ECS the direct opportunity to properly do its job and achieve homeostasis within these systems and your brain.
Now that you know why CBD works, let’s discuss the possible effects you could experience after consuming CBD.
Our full-spectrum CBD is widely considered the highest quality CBD oil, as it promotes the entourage effect. This refers to the combined effects of all the compounds found in hemp, including cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, omegas, and more.
Together, these compounds have shown promise in scientific studies to potentially help relieve symptoms related to common conditions affecting our everyday health.
Some beneficial effects of CBD oil may include:
This covers the majority of what users report from their experiences, but now we’d like to dive a little deeper into the medical side of things, which simultaneously, will cover a few points on the legal side of the CBD & Hemp industry.
Basically, what we’re allowed to talk about and what we’ve been forbidden to talk about.
Over the last 60 years, CBD & other cannabinoids, like THC, have shown promising results across hundreds of different scientific studies and clinical trials stating that CBD could possible serve as a potential therapeutic aid for a copious amount of different health issues.
With that said, the only FDA-confirmed health benefit of CBD is for treating seizures. Not all seizures, but only seizures that are caused by two rare forms of epilepsy; Lennox-Gastaut syndrome or Dravet syndrome.
The name of the product that they approved is called Epidiolex.
The significance of this approval is history in the making for the CBD industry as not only did the FDA approve this form of treatment, they acknowledged that it is safe even for children 2 years and older!
Hopefully, this is a huge first step that will lead to many more health conditions being approved.
Over the last 60 years, CBD & other cannabinoids combined, like THC, have shown promising results across hundreds of different medical studies and clinical trials. Most of which state variations of the following in the conclusion of their report:
“Our preliminary data suggests that CBD could possibly serve as an effective BLANK for BLANK, however, more detailed studies are needed.“
Given our stance on providing the best CBD education, we’d love to list all of the completed scientific studies so that you and your primary care physician could more easily create an educated-based plan for your wellness needs; legally, we cannot.
We are a CBD brand that sells CBD products; and as such, even if it’s for educational purposes, it is a legal conflict of interest (with consequences) for us to provide any links or information on past-completed, health-specific medical CBD studies for their readers.
The FDA sees this type of educational offerings to be more of an implication of what the CBD products are to be used for rather than the potential educational value it could offer our readers.
The FDA has made their stance crystal clear on this matter and they’re taking legal action against CBD brands who make or suggest any medical health benefit claims.
In the past five years alone, there has been a multitude of CBD brands that have received FDA warning letters for making such claims.
If you want to do your own research, a simple Google search of a medical condition + the word “CBD” will get you started in the right direction.
Okay, no more legal jargon! Let’s talk about consumption methods and all of the most common ways you can use CBD oil.
In addition to its long list of potential benefits, CBD is directly associated with the particular reason you want to take it in the first place.
The best approach to the proper use of CBD oil largely depends on your needs. For instance, if you’re taking CBD oil for pain, you may want to combine multiple delivery forms and pair your oil with a CBD balm (targeted relief).
Now, if your goal is to use CBD oil for stress, perhaps a quicker delivery method like CBD vape may be best suited to combat it.
Either way, for the best results, we always suggest that you visit our CBD dosing guide and also consult with your healthcare practitioner before altering your diet.
Our CBD oils come with a convenient calibrated dropper for easy measuring and ingestion. Oral consumption is considered the method that lasts the longest in terms of effects; it is also the most common consumption method. For a much more detailed answer, view our step-by-step guide, how to take CBD oil.
This DIY (Do It Yourself) course produces a full-spectrum CBD oil, which means it is highly effective. It will give you the best opportunity to experience the entourage effect as it contains almost all if not all of the available chemical compounds naturally found within Cannabis plants. It’s essential to disclose that this includes trace amounts of THC (<0.3%).
For most people, this is considered a good thing; multiple cannabinoids and terpenes are believed to enhance the wellness properties of each other.
Now, in this section, we’ll talk about what you need to make an all-natural CBD oil from your home.
Know that the quality of cannabis used will determine the quality of your final product. We suggest picking a high-quality strain.
While there are quality hemp oils available to buy, we believe learning how to make Cannabinoid-rich hemp oil at home is manageable, affordable, and with minimal risk. Oil extraction uses low heat to extract CBD indirectly minus any harsh fumes or flammability gradually. It’s the safest and most straightforward way to supply yourself with homemade CBD oil. Extracting your own CBD oil from the hemp flower is relatively straightforward and is easy to use.
With thousands of CBD brands erecting over the past few years, much incorrect guidance has followed. Here are a few most commonly found misconceptions in the CBD industry that you MUST KNOW.
Contrary to prevalent belief, CBD oil products should NOT be promoted as sublingual products. If a supplement directs you to place liquid under your tongue and hold it there for 30 or more seconds, it is for the specific purpose to allow the body enough time to absorb achieving better bioavailability of the product.
The kicker here is, sublingual products have to be somewhat water-soluble or alcohol-based, and certainly NOT made of oil.
The reason for this is for the following two specific reasons:
THE TRUTH TO THIS MISCONCEPTION:
The word Psychoactive is used all the time incorrectly. CBD companies that claim that their CBD oil products are “NOT PSYCHOACTIVE” are entirely wrong. Psychoactive is defined as “activating the mind,” and directly, mind activation can be accomplished with so many typical household food and beverage items. This includes coffee, caffeinated tea, and all the CBD gummies that are in your medicine cabinet.
Psychoactivity does not insinuate euphoria or a “high” feeling. It strictly alludes to mind activation. If you want a word to describe a high-euphoria activating product, the term the industry is looking for is “PSYCHOTROPIC.”
Misconception Correction: CBD Oil is NON-Psychotropic, but it is Psychoactive.
This has caused so much confusion, so let’s get down to the brass tax. Although it has the spelling of “nut” within its name, Coconut is not a NUT whatsoever. In fact, according to the ACAAI (American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology), coconuts are classified as a fruit!
Oddly and confusingly, the FDA chooses to ignore the fact that it is a fruit, and they categorize coconuts as tree nuts. This is what is believed to be the cause of all the confusion and blatant misconception. ACAAI.org continues by saying that most persons who are allergic to tree nuts can safely take part in the consumption of coconuts.
In the CBD industry, Forbes.com stated that “it is hard to stand out in such a saturated CBD industry that contains so many different CBD brands.” We both agree and disagree with that statement. After all, only a handful of different hemp extractions methods and only somewhat of around 50 Certified Industrial Hemp Cultivars (hemp strains) to choose from.
Nonetheless, we’d like to take this opportunity to prove just how different Cannabidiol Life is from all the rest.
All of our CBD oils offer the same ingredients and the same CBD potency per milliliter (50mg of CBD/1mL). This upgraded system of CBD oil dosing allows all our customers never to have to worry about the potency of the CBD inside their bottle. The only thing you need to do is decide on how many servings you’d like to purchase!
Our ingredients list:
The majority of nationally recognized CBD brands are still using and selling CBD products that offer LOW-STANDARD CBD EXTRACTION METHODS, specifically, Supercritical CO2 (SC-C02) Extraction.
There are countless online resources written by industry experts such as MJBizDaily.com and Leafly.com that verify that ethanol extraction is best.
If another CBD brand uses Supercritical C02 Extraction and claims to offer Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Products, please be aware that this is not possible!
To be considered a full-spectrum hemp product, the same ratios of chemical compounds found inside the hemp flower before extraction must also be present in the final CBD product after the extraction process. The main reasons that SC-C02 cannot produce a full spectrum hemp product are because most terpenes have low vapor pressures, which makes this extraction method too robust of a system as it destroys the necessary monoterpenes that are required to be considered a full-spectrum CBD product.
Supercritical C02 extraction is physically incapable of producing high-quality full-spectrum whole-plant hemp oils like Cannabidiol Life.
Cannabidiol Life doesn’t use regular ethanol either. We use a much more expensive, 100% organic, denatured Ethanol as our preferred solvent for extraction purposes.
After a few years of testing out and trying many different cannabis plants/hemp cultivars, we’ve chosen what we believe to be the absolute best and most well-rounded hemp cultivar on the planet, and it’s called Cherry Wine.
Our CBD oils and the majority of our entire CBD product line are strictly sourced from this strain of hemp. Our industrial hemp plants are organically grown in the USA on certified organic farmland.
Our CBD oil tinctures are also full-spectrum formulas, meaning they contain all the essential chemical compounds found in hemp in addition to CBD. This combination of hemp-based cannabinoids helps deliver more substantial effects than CBD alone, known as the entourage effect.
The entourage effect promotes the opportunity to experience the full range of wellness benefits associated with natural hemp. When you buy CBD oil from our store, you are guaranteed all-natural CBD, vegan, organic solutions that meet the highest industry standards.
