What Is CBD Oil?

Posted by on

Summary: 

  • CBD is a plant-based compound with a wide range of healing and wellness benefits. CBD promotes holistic regulatory balance through chemical and physical pathways within the body and soothes the central nervous system. CBD oil brings the body into stasis and keeps inflammation down, with preventative, healing and palliative effects.

  • CBD oil is one of the main ways that people apply or ingest CBD. It can be taken sublingually (under the tongue), eaten, stirred into tea, used as a salve, and more. How you take it has to do with why you’re using it. CBD oil is hands-down the best way to deliver CBD to the human body

  • Woven Earth uses a “lipid process” to make our CBD oil. This process infuses the entire plant into a carrier oil from the start without the intermediary step of isolating the plant oil. We use coconut oil as a carrier oil because it has the best absorption rate. From this process, you get a rich, potent, green-colored oil full of chlorophyll from the plant. It’s a wholesome, highly nutrient-dense product.

Long: 

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis sativa plant. While it’s sister compound, THC, has long gotten a lot of the glory, CBD is a potent contributor to human health and wellbeing that’s starting to be recognized for its own benefits.

CBD oil helps regulate receptors in the human body’s enco-cannabinoid system. It brings the body into stasis and keeps inflammation down, with preventative, healing and palliative effects. It promotes holistic regulatory balance through chemical and physical pathways within the body and soothes the central nervous system.

The Benefits of CBD Oil

While research by official bodies is still in early days, there’s plenty of anecdotal evidence to suggest that CBD oil holds powerful benefits for a range of ailments such as:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Arthritis and other pain-based disorders
  • Symptoms related to cancer and cancer treatment such as nausea, vomiting and pain
  • High blood pressure
  • Substance abuse
  • Diabetes (prevention)
  • Neurological disorders such as epilepsy and multiple sclerosis

    In fact, official cannabidiol trials have proven that CBD reduces seizures in kids with Dravet syndrome, a complex childhood epilepsy disorder. As a result, the FDA approved CBD for this type of epilepsy and another called Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, and Epidiolex, a CBD oral solution, is now on the market for this use.

    How is CBD Oil Made?

    CBD oils are often made in a two-step process:

    1. Run flowers of CBD-rich strains of the cannabis sativa plant through a solvent or high pressure to get a crude oil or wax.

    2. Infuse that wax into a carrier oil to dilute it.

    Woven Earth, on the other hand, uses a “lipid process” which infuses the entire plant into the carrier oil from the start without the intermediary step of isolating the plant oil. From this process, you get a rich, potent, green-colored oil full of chlorophyll from the plant. It’s a wholesome, highly nutrient-dense product.

    CBD oil can be made with a variety of carrier oils. Some herbalists and botanicalists use hemp seed oil, olive oil or butter. We use coconut oil, a very common carrier oil for CBD because it’s the oil with the best absorption rate for the human body, whether applied to the skin or taken internally.

    You may have heard of MCT oil, especially if you drink bulletproof coffee. MCT oil is a favorite food of athletes and wellness advocates because the medium-chain triglycerides that give it its letters are metabolized differently than the long-chain triglycerides (LCTs) found in other types of oils. It’s “good fat” that can be rapidly broken down and absorbed by the body.

    Why Oils Matter to CBD

    Without getting into too much of the nitty-gritty science of why oil is so important in the CBD equation, it boils down to this: the human endocannabinoid system is a fat-based system. The endocannabinoids the body manufactures are built from lipids (fat solids). Plant-based cannabinoids like CBD are also fat-soluble, which is exactly why they’re so often delivered in a carrier oil.

    CBD oil is simply the best way for the body to take in CBD.
