What is CBD Oil?
At Aura CBD Oil UK we provide thousands of people around the world with high-grade, organic CBD oils, pastes, balms and edibles. Our CBD oil is also full spectrum, so contains a ‘full spectrum’ of phytochemicals naturally occurring in cannabis sativa plants. But what is CBD oil?
What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is a food supplement made from hemp plants. Our CBD oil is made through a process called super-critical CO2 extraction. This method uses liquid CO2 as a solvent to separate the CBD from the rest of the plant matter.
The result is a concentrated CBD extract that still contains a full spectrum off all the phytochemicals in hemp plants. This includes terpenes, fatty acids, flavonoids, anti-oxidants, plant fibre and chlorophyll.
How is CBD oil different to cannabis oil?
People often confuse CBD oil with cannabis oil, but they are not the same thing.
Cannabis oil is made from cannabis plants, that contain over 0.2% THC. Cannabis oil contains THC and therefore is psychoactive.
CBD oil on the other hand, is made with hemp plants that contain under 0.2% THC. That, along with the extraction process, means that our CBD oil only contains trace amounts of THC.
How is CBD oil different to hemp oil?
CBD oil is made from hemp, but it is not the same as household hemp oil you might buy in the supermarket.
That is because household hemp oil, or hemp seed oil, is made by pressing hemp seeds to extract their oil.
CBD oil is made from the whole of the hemp plant, and the process of extraction creates a CBD-rich hemp extract.
While hemp seed oil does contain trace amounts of CBD and THC, according to research the amounts are negligible.
