While the benefits of a CBD hemp oil supplement may be clear, the answers to the questions of which kind and from what company can be very foggy. Some producers of hemp oil use strains of hemp that do not have a high enough CBD content, while others use marijuana with a high THC content that contain unwanted psychotropic effects. But beyond the quality of the raw material, there are different methods for producing the hemp oil supplement. Some offer raw hemp oil, while others create the tinctures or capsules using heat or chemicals. Let's take a look at the differences between raw hemp oil and oil from other extraction methods.
It may seem obvious, but what sets raw hemp oil apart is that is it produced without the use of heat – or chemicals. Most companies utilize an extraction method that uses pressure to turn the hemp flower into an oil. Functional Remedies, however, has a unique lipid infusion process that gently protects the natural cellular bonds for a full-spectrum hemp oil supplement.
By not using heat or pressure, the enzymes and vitamins within the plant that are sensitive to heat are preserved. CBD is a cannabinoid in the hemp plant, but it's not the only one. Other cannabinoids, as well as terpenes and other phytonutrients, are preserved in raw help oil and provide a nutrient density much higher than biological hemp extraction methods. Raw hemp oil is produced using the entire hemp plant; when only the tops of the plant are used, some benefits are lacking.
Raw hemp oil is normally thick and dark green to black in color. Depending on the strain of cannabis, there can also be a lower percentage of CBD, or cannabidiol, in the product. Because it uses the entire plant instead of just the tops, it is also the more economical option. However, there is a substantial "bang for the buck" with this type of hemp oil supplement, as the nutrient density and reasonable prices make it a popular option for those who are suffering from anxiety, sleep problems and chronic pain.
A raw hemp oil supplement offers a wide variety of benefits for users, especially because the production process maintains the plant's CBDa compounds. This has been found to maintain homeostasis in the body, which is vital for emotional and mental stability as well as a good night's sleep. Since the raw hemp oil can sometimes taste a little bitter, individuals interested in the benefits of the whole hemp plant may choose to purchase capsules or a salve. It is important when first using a hemp oil supplement to start with a low dosage and then, if necessary, increase to achieve the desired results.Interested in purchasing a high-quality raw hemp oil?
