Hemp-based CBD extracts provide a legal alternative for patients seeking the benefits of cannabidiol.
CBD hemp oil India provides a unique type of cannabis extract that is rich in cannabidiol (CBD). The term ‘hemp oil’ refers to the fact that these products are made using industrial-grade hemp instead of marijuana.
CBD has become a highly sought after compound in recent years, taking the natural products industry by storm after receiving highly publicized exposure in the media, including in Sanjay Gupta’s special, “Weed”, which first premiered on CNN. Since then, CBD oil products have appeared on shelves in doctors offices, medical marijuana dispensaries and grocery stores alike, with no medical card required to purchase.
CBD and THC in Hemp
Cannabis plants contain a unique set of compounds known as cannabinoids. Over 80 different cannabinoids have been identified in cannabis, many of which have significant medical properties.
THC and CBD are the two most common cannabinoids found in cannabis. These cannabinoids are found in high concentrations in the flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant.
Generally speaking, hemp contains more CBD than THC, whereas marijuana contains more THC than CBD. However, the actual concentration of these cannabinoids depend on the genetic makeup of an individual plant and thus differ from plant to plant.
For example, some hemp may contain high levels of CBD while others contain fairly low quantities. Through selective breeding, cultivators have been able to produce unique strains of hemp that are rich in CBD.
CBD Hemp Oil India makes use of a cold manufacturing process to reproduce a similar chemical composition in our oils to that which is found in the original hemp plant.
After harvesting the plants, a supercritical CO2 extraction process is used to produce the highest quality of hemp oil available in the market.
