CBD & Hemp Oil Questions (5)

That’s a bit difficult to answer in only a few sentences because, as with so much of our culture, words have multiple meanings to different people.  This is due largely because there is no formalized nomenclature for the purposes of labeling, advertising, or legally sustainable nomenclature.

It has been kept “underground” since the 1930’s and as a result the vocabulary is almost entirely slang and colloquialisms.  That said, it is generally interpreted by those of us in the industry to separate Hemp oil from CBD oil.

The specific answers lie in for what the product’s purpose or application is intended.  Hemp oil is generally expected to be a full spectrum organic oil extract from commercial hemp (Cannabis ruderalis) where CBD oil more of a constructed substance that varies in characteristics and ingredients that facilitate it use or specific application.

For example, Hemp oil is used for pet products and CBD oil almost never is.

My feeling is that in order for CBD oil to be properly classified as such, the CBD needs to be isolated from other psychoactive cannabinoids.  I could go on for days, but the important thing to remember is that commercial hemp oil contains about .3% THC while CBD oil is isolated from the THC cannabinoid.

CBD itself can be 99.5% pure (the rest is basically water molecules) while containing no other cannabinoids whatsoever.  This is called CBD isolate and is used in the preparation of CBD edibles because it has virtually no taste.

Other forms of CBD oil contain very little actual CBD. Others are blended for vaporizing and inhaling, while others are nano-sized and encapsulated in Water, Gel Caps and Gummies for the kids.

Essentially, you can think of hemp oil as a basic, essential oil extract from hemp while CBD oil is further refined, often isolated, and also sourced from CBD-dominant strains of the Cannabis satiiva variety.

    This has really been helpful. I was always wondering about the source of CBD being hemp or Cannabis. Now I realize it can be either, but it’s up to me to understand the difference esspecially when it comes to nano CBD versus regular CBD isolate. Very interesting. Thanks!

  • Gloria Rodriguez says:

    Thank you for the information. I cured my brain tumor myself with cbd oil 1000mg with the drops my daughter got for me. After i finished the bottle they did another mri and my tumor is gone. I still have to go back to the neurologist when i go i got to tell them to get the records from Florida. I moved back home to see my old dr and this is the results. Thank God for this plant. Oh, and i used to have high cholesterol levels and the dr didn’t say nothing about it neither.

  • Lon G. says:

    I love your information on nano CBD and how nanotechnology has now entered the Cannabis space instead of just traditional drug manufacturing of synthetics with dangerous and unhealthy side effects. I hope you write more on that soon! Thanks, your the best source for CBD info anywhere. And your products that you recommend too.

    • Hi Lon, Thanks for the kind words, and you are inluck. I will be posting a very thorough exploration and explanation of how nanotechnology is changing the effectiveness of CBD even further!

    Absolutely, if you want to remain that way.  If you are asking this you are likely young. Those of us getting longer of tooth know all too well the benefits of CBD in our lives.  Don’t wait till you have symptoms before your pursue optimum health. And if you are a younger athlete, you are focused on optimizing endurance and recovery.  So, understanding what CBD can do for you should be of particular interest.

    It’s important to remember a medical fact.  Everyone is different in one way or another especially when it comes to health and wellness objectives.

    No one in the U.S. is free to make medical claims about Cannabis products and CBD including our physicians themselves.  However, we are still allowed to share our own experiences… for the time being anyway.

    Yes.  CBD is known to inhibit an enzyme called cytochrome P450.  It is the same effect that eating grapefruit can have on medications, and is involved in the metabolization of a number of drugs.

    The inhibition of cytochrome P450 can have the effect of either increasing or decreasing the drug’s intended effect.  It is therefore advisable to ask your physician if any of your medications are in this category.

    For more information, you can refer to CBD-Drug Interactions: The Role of Cytochrome P450.

  • Gillian says:

    Hi my dog is on 0.5mg cyclavence every morning, 100mg gabapenton in the morning and at night, 2.5mg presidone (steroid) and 0.5mg amatriptyline at night.
    Can I give him CBD oil.

    Thank you

    • Hi Gillian, as you probably know, both amatriptyline and gabapenton are medications for peripheral nerve pain. Both are toxic and dangerous, so if it were my dog, I would be giving it a high quality CBD product ( 3 times per day) such as are recommended in my Pet Product Reviews categories. The steroid is probably to reduce scratching and itchy skin… so basically, CBD does all these things without toxicity and side effects from prescription medications which are in my opinion not healthy at all. Steroid medication won’t work forever. Please consider reading the side effects of these medications. They are likely making things worse for your pet. However, CBD will not interact with these dangerous medications. CBD is completely non-toxic. CBD will replace all these drugs over time. That’s why I use it, pets benefit from it and millions of people throughout the ages. Soon you should be able to significantly reduce these prescription meds and your Pet will have a new lease on it’s current life experience.

    No. CBD and hemp oil is a non-toxic, non-psychoactive, and non-addictive substance that is of no interest to drug testers.  It is THC that they may or may not be testing for because it is the most prevalent cannabinoid in marijuana and therefore easier to detect.

    CBD leaves your system entirely in 6 to 8 hours whereas THC can stay in your system for over a month.

  • Janet Hoover says:

    You answer “no” to the question can I pass a drug test then go on to explain. But I am confused. Are you saying there is THC in your CBD so you will not pass a drug test? Or are you saying that since they look for THC only that you will not test positive on a test? Your answer is not clear.

    • Sorry for the confusion Janet. What I am saying is that the main reason that there is no “drug test” for CBD is because there is no reason to test for it in the first place. Since CBD is a completely non-toxic, non-psychoactive, and non-addicting nutrient that is needed by our endocannabinoid systems (and related systems of the body) for maintaining a condition of healthy homeostasis, what would be the reason to go to the expense of “drug testing” for it?

      As far as CBD Living’s nano CBD product line, there is no THC present in any amount in the products tested. However, that is not the same for other CBD brands such as the CBD Pure Hemp Oil which is also offered at Cannabis Animus. In fact, most all brands contain that disclaimer on the label (“…less than .03% THC”) in order to pass Federal regulations… even if there is no THC present whatsoever. Manufacturers have been allowed to include less than .03% THC in their CBD products for two main reasons: First is because, at that level, THC is deemed inconsequential from any “drug” effect(s). And the second reason is that the hemp plant species, Cannabis ruderalis, contains less than .03% THC in its natural form and has been proven to have no psychoactive effect on either humans or other mammals either.

    Yes, but not in the traditional sense where harm is caused.  I’ve taken as much as 800mg of CBD at one time and not experienced any adverse effects other than becoming very sleepy.  So I took a nap.

    There are studies you can find easily on search engines where as much as 1500mg was studied on humans with essentially the same results I had.  CBD is considered to be a non-toxic substance by any bio/pharma definition.

    According to a study by biochemist Etienne de Meijer (Inheritance of the Cannabinoid Phenotype), growers can induce environmental conditions such as light, temperature, nutrients, water, and soil acidity.  Different combinations and permutations definitely increases (or lowers) the levels of various cannabinoids such as CBD and THC ultimately derived from the grow.

    That said, it is also currently true that the overall potential of each strain’s cannabinoid content is limited by its genetics.
