Making CBD Oil is not an easy process at all. Here’s how to make CBD Oil UK, how CBD Oil is extracted, and what most people know about CBD. CBD is a compound from the hemp plant which is used very much as an oil. But how does one plant turn into oil in the world? That’s the kind of question you get from our online customers! And the thing is, most people just have no idea how the method of extraction works, so here’s an uncomplicated explanation.
The types of extractions used to make CBD Oil
There are two forms of extractions of CBD in fact, extraction of CO2 and extraction of ethanol.
How to make CBD Oil UK using a CO2 Extraction. This type of extraction is the most used technique to extract CBD, and it is also a difficult way to extract it. If you’ve ever wondered why CBD oil can be so costly, it’s because it’s a pretty expensive process actually. It is a way to remove the CBD, along with the terpenes in the plant, in its purest possible form. This is the kind of extraction we use to create our CBD Products.
How to make CBD Oil UK using Ethanol Extraction. This type of extraction is a simpler method that mostly removes the CBD from the plant (without the terpenes), which is suitable for making topics or foods. Extraction of ethanol is a process which is simpler and cheaper than the CO2 extraction. It’s just the way people are making CBD oil at home because it doesn’t take much technique. However, the extraction of ethanol does not include CBD of high quality as would CO2 extraction, because it is combined with another solvent.
CBD is not extracted as an Oil
Perhaps one of the main myths people have about CBD is that it comes directly as an oil. Well, CBD, in its purest form, is simply not an oil. To make CBD Oil, CBD is extracted as a powder or crystal and then added to carrier oil. This can explain the reason why there are so many different CBD Oil tastes. A carrier oil is used to dilute the CBD and is also used to make essential oils in aromatherapy.
MCT Oil, Coconut Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, and Olive Oil are the most common carrier oils for CBD. The different types of oil add a taste (or don’t) but they have also added benefits. Our brand uses MCT Oil to make our Amino CBD Oils which are tasteless, ideal for beginners and to add food and drink.
While the most widely used type of product is CBD Oil, there are many other ways to take CBD, such as CBD capsules, CBD edibles, CBD Gummies and even CBD Toothpaste. You can use CBD on your skin too, we have a wide variety of Topicals on our website.
Benefits and Uses of CBD
Evidence shows that CBD extract will have tremendous potential in the medical industry. The main benefits of CBD are curing anxiety, reducing pain and inflammation, and, among many others, helping prevent seizures. Because it’s a natural extract, the side effects are few, if any. The extract works with the body’s Endocannabinoid System, which is the method used by the Immun System to regulate processes such as pain, mood, appetite and memory.
Instead of being an unnatural substance, CBD interacts with the Immune System so the body does not want to resist it. CBD extract may come from cannabis or hemp, most commonly hemp, which is naturally high in CBD. Cannabis can also be bred to have low levels of THC and high levels of CBD.
