An Introduction to CBD Oil

CBD Oil has been steadily gaining in popularity, and for good reason! This safe and effective remedy has become a staple supplement for many of our customers. So, what is CBD Oil? To start, "CBD" is the acronym for Cannabidiol, a promising cannabinoid found in the hemp plant and in medical/recreational cannabis. It is the high quality of CBD plants that is professionally grown harvest and produced within our facilities in EU.IZZY CBD FARM takes pride in providing our customers with not just CBD OIL but 100% ORGANICALLY PRODUCE CBD OIL.

What is the Difference Between THC and CBD?

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are the two primary cannabinoids that occur naturally in the Cannabis sativa plant, most commonly known as cannabis. Both of these substances interact with the cannabinoid receptors found in the human body and brain, but they differed dramatically in their effects. CBD is non-psychoactive which means that it will not get the user high. Because of this trait, CBD appears more frequently than THC in dietary and natural supplements.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol is one of the most critical cannabinoids contained in the cannabis plant. It exists both in agricultural hemp, as well as medical cannabis. While cannabinoids are present within several plants in nature, cannabis is the only plant known to contain CBD. CBD has the same chemical formula as THC, with the atoms in a different arrangement.

Difference Between THC and CBD

This slight variance causes THC to create a psychoactive effect, while CBD does not. This fact means that when you ingest CBD for medical purposes, you will more likely experience a relief of your unwanted discomfort, with no noticeable effect on your cognitive abilities.

What Is the Entourage Effect?

The entourage effect describes a phenomenon in which the 400+ compounds in cannabis work together to create a particular effect on the body. [S]

For example, 100mg of isolated CBD may be substantially less effective at alleviating symptoms than 100mgs of a whole-plant, CBD-containing cannabis extract. Many argue that consuming the plant in its whole form provides all the necessary cofactors to facilitate proper absorption.

This argument is at the heart of the debate over CBD oil from hemp vs. CBD oil from cannabis.

While it may be cheaper and more cost-effective to extract CBD from industrial hemp, users may ultimately experience less benefit due to the absence of clinically significant levels of terpenes and other compounds (which occur in abundance in high-CBD marijuana).

While high-CBD cultivars of cannabis do contain much higher levels of various cannabinoids, terpenes, etc., it does not mean that there aren't potential drawbacks to its use.

Agricultural hemp is much closer to the kind of cannabis that one would find growing naturally in the wild, whereas high-CBD marijuana is hybridized and toyed with by growers to produce the highest levels of the desirable compounds.

Why does CBD see more usage than THC in natural supplements?

THC is an illegal drug with considerable immediate and long-term cognitive side effects. These include impaired thinking and reasoning, a reduced ability to plan and organize, altered decision-making, and reduced control over impulses.

Also, chronic use of THC correlates with significant abnormalities in the heart and brain.

CBD lacks the harmful cognitive effects of THC. In fact, CBD can counteract the psychoactive effects of THC.

Cannabis plants containing small amounts of CBD and high levels of THC result in a stronger 'stoned' feeling, while plants with more CBD and less THC create a weaker, more relaxed, effect.

Given the increasing popularity of medical cannabis, breeders are currently creating strains with higher CBD to THC ratios to minimize the psychoactive side effects.

Overall, the lower health risks of CBD, combined with its efficacy, make it a better candidate for natural applications than THC.
