CBD plant (Hemp) and THC plant (Marihuana) with Cannabis flowers, both come from the same parents, Cannabis Sativa, but they come from different strains. The CBD plant strain is one with very low or almost zero THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) level. THC plant has a higher THC level that varies between 0.3% to 40% depending on its seed. Currently there is a medicinal use for both extracted oils, either from CBD plant or from THC plant. CBD plant, has a potential as a dietary supplement, since it has a high level of protein and fatty acids, including essential oils such as omega 3. The part of the plant used for this purpose is the stem and the seeds. THC plant, on the other hands having a higher level of THC makes it ideal for medicinal use, due to the fact that THC achieves the interaction of all the cannabinoids and terpenes of the plant, maximizing its potential and benefits for the body.
TYPES OF OILS
- CBD OIL FULL SPECTRUM: It includes all the plants cannabinoids and terpenes that have up to 0.3% THC, which is the legal limit.
- CBD OIL BROAD SPECTRUM: It has other cannabinoids and terpenes added to the oil, but it does not have any active THC percentage.
- CBD OIL (ISOLATE): It refers to the pure oil obtained from cannabis without adding other cannabinoids or terpenes, therefore they do not have detectable levels of THC.
They are essential oils found in all plants, herbs and flowers. In the case of cannabis, it is no exception, each Terpene has unique fragrances and properties that when combined with CBD OIL enhance the therapeutic benefits in its medicinal use. Considering these facts, we can affirm that CBD or CBD Isolate and CBD oil broadspectrum are completely viable in their use, without leaving detectable traces of THC in any doping test.
We can conclude that products derived from Cannabis can be significant and give beneficial contributions to our health, both medicinally or as food supplements. It must be remembered, that the medicinal use of CBD provides benefits and acts in different ways in the endocannabinoid system, depending on the metabolism of each person or animal.
