We gave the highest points to companies that use a CBD distillate for their tinctures. The process of distillation creates an extract that is pure on a molecular level. There are people who think distillate is too pure, and that a full spectrum decarb produces a more effective tincture. But in light of the inconclusive evidence, we prefer a distillate. The process allows for a high degree of control as to the finished product. It’s also odorless and tasteless, so those tinctures tend to taste better.
In the United States, over three million people suffer from epilepsy – 470,000 of those people are children. Epilepsy is a disorder of the brain that causes seizures – of which there are over thirty different kinds, ranging from mild and infrequent to life-threatening. Not surprisingly, people with epilepsy face significant challenges – from the cost of healthcare to work limitations and social isolation.
There are over 85 cannabinoids that make up the marijuana plant. The most popular and well known of these is tetrahydrocannabinol, or better known as THC. THC is a psychotropic cannabinoid that causes a high when inhaled or ingested. CBD has no THC. This means those dealing with various forms of pain and depression can safely use CBD to curb negative effects on the body without having to turn to prescription pharmaceuticals.
Like any manufactured product, one of the best ways to ensure quality is to use high-quality materials. This is especially important in CBD oil because of the hemp plant’s characteristic as a “hyperaccumulator.” This means that the hemp plant easily absorbs anything that is present in the ground that it was cultivated and farmed. If a hemp plant grew on rich soil, the resulting plant will be of high quality that can produce CBD oil in the same high-quality as well.

This is the hemp oil directly extracted from the plant. This is the base active ingredient for any other cannabinoid product, but it can be purchased and eaten on its own if you are looking to avoid any other ingredients and get a value in terms of price per serving. There are many different methods used for extraction. We recommend products that are CO2 extracted as other methods can leave chemical residues. These are primarily sold in oral syringes that allow the customer to dispense a very small amount of product at a time. There are generally three types of oil.
You then take your first drop of CBD oil, wait 45 minutes, then ask the questions again. If you feel no different and there’s no change in the way you answer those questions, you increase the dose by small increments until you do notice a difference. You can continue this process over several days – and at some point, you’ll find that taking more doesn’t change your scores. That is your minimum effective dose.

There is a lot to be hopeful for as legalization marches forward and as cannabis becomes more widely accepted for its medicinal purposes. Unfortunately, with cannabis and CBD still listed as schedule one substances, research is limited and many medical professionals still remain in fear to discuss or endorse medical cannabis for something like cancer. As of March 2015, over 15,000 patients in the state of Colorado reported severe nausea or cancer as their reporting condition for their medical card. Organizations like Project CBD, Realm of Caring, and CannaKids provide resources and connect families who seek cannabinoid therapy for their illnesses. According to a 2016 estimate by procon.org, there are over 2.5 million medical marijuana users in the United States. This number grows every year as more states legalize access to medical cannabis and it’s becoming harder for the mainstream medical community to ignore this growing group of people.
One of the important question people will ask regarding CBD oil is whether it is legal to purchase. A vast majority of CBD oil is extracted from hemp which is a non-psychoactive compound that contains none or very low concentration of THC, hence considered as completely legal and separate from cannabis marijuana regulation and authority. Many states and countries around the world are changing their laws to legalize the use of medical marijuana. CBD hemp oil products can be shipped to 40 countries (including all 50 states of America) while those from marijuana plants are not legal in many states, nor can they be shipped across most state lines.
Dogs and cats are known for their powerful sense of smell. They typically don’t like having something new added to their food, making supplementing their diets to ease health issues challenging. However, CBD products for pets take that challenge into account. Developed by dedicated veterinarians, they’ve been designed to pass the taste and smell test.
While THC affects your brain’s endocannabinoid receptors (resulting in the high), CBD does not attach directly to the receptors. Instead, it influences your body into using its own natural supply of cannabinoids more effectively. That is to say, it can inhibit or activate compounds in the ECS, which in turn can impact the amount of pain you feel or limit inflammation in the brain and nervous system.
Another field in which CBD is creating a buzz is in the area of mood disorders like anxiety and depression. Both conditions have been treated with a variety of medications, courtesy of Big Pharma, that have had varying levels of success. Again, the long list of side effects can be off-putting to someone who just wants to get through the day without the sweaty tension of anxiety or the gray haze of depression.
44-year-old mother of two, Dee Mani, was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer, the worst type. Dee’s sister had died undergoing chemotherapy, the treatment her doctor’s recommended, so Dee sought a different choice — cannabis oil. Dee says she took one drop of oil every night before bed and five months after her starting cannabis oil, Dee was cleared of her original diagnosis. Dee claims that the oil helped her with other conditions like insomnia and back pain and plans to take oil for the rest of her life.
MMA fighter Joe Schilling describes (paraphrased) how cannabis oil killed cancer in his father, “I was able to visit my dad in the hospital. My dad’s prognosis was that he was going to die soon from cancer. He agreed to Cannabis Oil therapy, with CBD but not THC. There was cancer in his lung, cancer in his brain, cancer in his chest, a massive tumor was on his neck. We gave CBD oil to him for something like 7 months. He decided against chemo, he did not want to do it.” Schilling notes his father’s poor diet choices and refusal to take vitamins and states, “the doctors did their tests and graphs, you know the things that they do, and amazingly, 90% of the cancer was gone. I have no doubt what so ever that it was the CBD oil that killed the cancer because he was doing absolutely nothing else correctly. The 10% of the cancer that was still alive was surrounded by dead cells and was going to die out too.”
By botanical standards, marijuana and hemp are both cannabis. Of course, when you purchase hemp oil, you are not getting the same thing as if you were to purchase hemp oil in the form of a leaf or flower. In common terms, marijuana is the name that people often use for cannabis strains with THC. On the other hand, strains without THC are informally classified as hemp.
This may seem like a repeat of an earlier question, but while that question related to concentration of CBD in the product, this is simply a question of how much you’re getting in total. Most bottles are labeled in a similar way – “1,000mg CBD Oil” or “1,000mg Hemp Extract” – which generally means the entire bottle contains a total of 1,000mg of CBD.
