Medical Cannabis Laytonsville MD | CBD Oil: Why Whats on the Inside is What Counts

Many people are raving about the relief that they get from CBD oil use. But what is it exactly? CBD is simply the abbreviation used when referring to cannabidiol oil. It is a non-intoxicating compound derived from the Cannabis Sativa L. plant.

Extraction Method is Important

How the CBD oil was extracted from the plant makes a world of difference. You should always research before you buy a CBD oil to determine which extraction method was used.

The best way, though more expensive, to extract CBD oil is by using carbon dioxide. This method uses CO2 under high pressure to safely isolate, preserve, and maintain the purity of the CBD oil. This process does not use any harmful toxins, making it the safest method. Products extracted using the CO2 method are likely going to cost more, since the extraction process is more costly to do.

Other safe extraction methods involve the use coconut oil or olive oil. While these methods are less effective than the CO2 method, they are considered to be safe as the resulting CBD oil remains free of toxic substances.

Buying Cheap May Cost You Your Health

While buying the priciest CBD oil may not mean it is the best product, buying cheap could cost you your health. Some companies may opt for a cost-efficient extraction method that compromises the integrity of the oil and introduces toxins. Often harmful solvents are introduced, such as butane and propane. As a result, traces of these harmful substances remain in the CBD oil.

So when it comes to CBD oil, sometimes you do get what you pay for. If you buy cheap, it may cost you more (health wise) in the long run. Be sure to do your due diligence in researching any cannabis products and distributors before making your purchases. We’re hopeful that, in time, more FDA regulations will be put in place to protect consumers.
