Medical Marijuana in Laytonsville | CBD Oil Extraction Methods & Efficacy

Many people are finding great relief from the use of CBD oil, 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.

The way in which CBD oil is extracted makes a difference in the overall product. Knowing the extraction method used can help you determine the best choice.

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 a very safe method.  Products extracted using the CO2 method are likely going to cost more, since the extraction process itself is more costly.

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

Be mindful that some companies may opt for a more cost-efficient extraction method that compromises the integrity of the oil and can introduce toxins.  Sometimes harmful solvents are introduced, such as butane and propane.  As a result, traces of these harmful substances may remain in the CBD oil.

Due diligence is suggested when purchasing CBD products. We’re hopeful that, in time, regulations will be put in place making these processes and trace ingredients available to the consumer.
