Cannabidiol today is actually equated to a magic elixir: the list of its benefits as a supportive and revitalizing agent is truly amazing. This substance is extracted from special medical cannabis varieties containing a minimum of psychoactive cannabinoids and a maximum of useful CBD.
At the same time, it is not necessary to smoke cannabis today in order to feel all the advantages of cannabidiol. On the contrary, there are many types of products based on it, which are used for external and internal use. And the lion's share of such products are produced on the basis of CBD oil - the product of extraction of green parts and cones of cannabis.
And when choosing CBD products or CBD oil itself, the first thing the buyer should know is how the oil with cannabidiol was obtained.
It is best if the oil is produced using a CO2 extraction technique. In this case, its heat treatment is minimal, and the extract itself retains the maximum amount of cannabidiol. Treatment with ethanol or other alcohols, solvents based on butane or propane is also possible. These types of products are worse in quality, they may contain residues of the solvent itself or other chemical compounds. If you carefully read the labels of the world's headliners for the production of medical cannabis products, then they do not use such techniques at all.
To choose a really high-quality product, pay attention to the following features:
Oil type - depending on the composition, the oil can be based on pure CBD isolate, have the status of full-spectrum or broad spectrum. What does it mean? The isolate-based oil contains exactly 2 main components - the oil itself and 100% CBD crystals. Broad-spectrum oils, in addition to the oil base and cannabidiol, may contain insignificant doses of THC (up to 0.3%), terpenes and flavonoids. This expands and enhances their effect. But the oil of the full-spectrum category contains a full complex of cannabinoids, terpenes and phytoparticles that were part of the cannabis variety from which it is made, including THC.
Another indicator that needs to be taken into account is the concentration of the active substance in the oil. It can be either 1-2% or higher. The higher the concentration, the smaller the dose of oil you need to get the effect you need.
