What Is CBD Oil
(Cannabidiol Oil)?

What Is CBD Oil(Cannabidiol Oil)?

 

 

Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is one of the natural compounds found in the hemp plant. Countless thousands of people have experienced its calming benefits, and continue to seek out the various wellness advantages that hemp extract offers. Full-spectrum CBD products may contain a THC content less than 0.3%, but they will not get users high or produce mind-altering effects.

After extraction from the raw plant material, CBD exists as a crystalline solid – not dissimilar from what natural sea salt looks like in terms of appearance. However, due to its molecular structure, CBD saturates efficiently when infused into a carrier oil with high triglyceride content. This is the reason why we infuse all of our tinctures in high-quality MCT oil (fractionated from coconut oil).

So, what is MCT oil?

MCT stands for ‘medium-chain triglycerides.’ MCTs are lipids that are naturally found in coconut oil and other palm oils. Since CBD is oil-soluble and not water-soluble, a good, premium MCT oil will allow the active CBD compound to dissolve efficiently and “latch onto” the triglyceride molecules. This really helps the CBD to be delivered with efficiency to the body’s various systems.

If you’ve been scouring the net for reliable and effective CBD products for sale (or have even searched “CBD products near me” to try and find a local retailer), be advised that every Premium Jane oil is organic, non-GMO, and made with just two main ingredients:

  • Hemp extract (including the activated CBD)
  • MCT oil (which is fractionated from 100% coconut oil).

This means that you are getting a pure, healthy, whole-body product.

Before you buy CBD oil, make sure to check out our CBD oil for sale section on the site. We offer a wide range of cannabidiol oil products and CBD derivatives. We hope to answer any questions you may have, such as “where can I get CBD oil.” Also, feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions before you order CBD online.

Premium Jane Offers More Than Just CBD Oil On Line

In addition to our CBD oil online products (which are available in three strengths and three different flavors), we also offer high-quality CBD capsules, a CBD topical cream, flavored CBD gummies, and CBD bath bombs.
While the CBD oil tinctures are our most popular seller and will often answer the question of “where to buy cbd oil”, capsules are a great alternative for those who dislike the mildly bitter taste of hemp oil, which many people describe as “earthy” or “grassy.” (Capsules are also good for those who have a hard time holding the oil for 60-90 seconds before swallowing).
Not to be confused with CBD beauty products, our CBD-infused topical creams (which contain 750mg and 1500mg of CBD extract) are becoming a favorite among those who wish to use CBD on specific areas of the body. The advantage of topical creams is that you can apply them directly to the skin, where the CBD can work to carry out its various properties.
Lastly, our 100% vegan CBD gummies are a delicious and totally discreet way to get your daily CBD intake — and a robust intake at that, as each gummy contains roughly 25mg of CBD. A lot of customers like to bring the gummies to work with them, and have one or two throughout the day as a means to maintain focus and stay confident and relaxed. Also, our gummies are our only products that use a CBD with zero THC (our other products are made from full-spectrum hemp extract). Feel free to message us for the potential benefits of adding CBD to your daily routine.
Just remember, no matter where you live in the U.S., you’ve likely seen signs all over the place that say something like “Cheap CBD Oil For Sale!”, or “CBD Oil for Pain for Sale!”
While there are certainly some decent, well-made products out there, some of these oils are “gimmicks” that are simply trying to turn a quick buck on the CBD oil craze.
For example, many “roadside products” (as we like to call them) will have been made from cheap hemp seed oil, which contains virtually no active CBD compound. Proper CBD oil must be extracted from genetically-selected hemp strains, which is hard to find among the products that you see available in run-of-the-mill vape shops, head shops, health food stores, etc.
Also, in spite of what some companies out there may claim, it’s important to remind customers that Premium Jane products are NOT intended to treat, cure, or help diagnose any medical condition or ailment.
As a Premium Jane customer, you can rest assured that all of our plants were grown right here in the U.S., and contain lab-verified amounts of the CBD compound. Check out individual product pages to view some of these laboratory reports. Also, feel free to view our online shop, but even if you decide not to shop with Premium Jane, remember to always opt for a quality brand.

How to Buy CBD Oil
with Confidence?

Knowing how to buy CBD oil that will work for you isn’t always an easy task. There are many factors that come into play, including your general health and most important, the reason why you are seeking to go down the CBD route.

Cannabidiol CBD oil works by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system, and it can be ingested/consumed in a number of different ways.

There are many different types of CBD products, yet the most popular way is to administer orally as a tincture. When taken orally, you simply place drops of oil under the tongue, then hold for approximately 60-90 seconds before swallowing. This allows for efficient, reliable delivery of the CBD compound.

CBD can also be taken as capsules for those that have trouble with other methods. While CBD capsules are easy to use and super convenient, their major disadvantage is that they have to pass through the digestive system, which causes a certain percentage of the compound to be lost during metabolism. Nevertheless, the benefits of CBD capsules can be plentiful for those who opt to use them.

And of course, CBD can also be consumed as edibles via CBD gummies, cookies, brownies, candies, or any other form of infused food or beverage. This is a great option for those with taste sensitivities, and/or for those who simply enjoy consuming their CBD in a tasty, delicious treat.

CBD can also be inhaled via traditional smoking methods, or by vaporizing with a vape pen, e-cigarette, or desktop vape device. Premium Jane does not currently offer of these types of CBD products, however, as many of the “e-juices” are infused with thinning agents (such as propylene glycol) that may break down into carcinogenic formaldehydes upon exposure to high heat. And last but not least, there are CBD Topicals for those that want to apply CBD to a specific area of the body.

You may be happy to know that when you order CBD online with Premium Jane, we ship each and every one of our products in a fast and efficient manner. We strive to provide the best customer service, allowing you to order CBD oil online or other CBD products from us with confidence. Also, don’t forget to check our online shop as we are constantly working to update it with new products. Who knows, you might even find a premium CBD oil for sale.

What Is in Premium Jane
CBD Oil?

One of the things that makes Premium Jane unique within the market is that all of our products – from our standard CBD oils to our topical creams, capsules, and edible gummies – are sourced from actual hemp plant material that is grown in strain-specific microclimates. Much of the hemp CBD oil for sale in the industry today is extracted from asian hemp seed, which offers negligible amounts of  beneficial cannabidiol.

On the contrary, our products are extracted from the stalk, stems, leaves and flowers of industrial Cannabis sativa L. hemp strains that have been bred specifically on generational farms to contain high amounts of CBD and virtually non-existent amounts of THC (each and every batch is tested for THC levels under 0.02%).

As such, each and every one of our oils, topicals, edibles, and capsules provides the positive effects of CBD, without any of the psychoactive effects that have traditionally associated with cannabis.

Finally, every Premium Jane product is refined and processed legally under federal laws and restrictions, adhering to the production and distribution guidelines that allow us to sell and ship to all 50 U.S. states.

2CBD stands for cannabidiol. It’s a type of cannabinoid, which means it’s an active compound from the cannabis plant. There are hundreds of cannabinoids, but in recent times, CBD has become one of the most talked about – and the most popular.

It used to be THC that was so famed, in part because it triggers an intoxicating high. However, CBD has overtaken its infamous cousin and become the star of the health sector. By now, most people know a little about CBD, but if you’re new here, then read on to discover the basics of what you need to know.

Where Does It Come from?

In short, CBD comes from the Cannabis sativa plant. Some confusion stems from the fact that there are multiple types of the cannabis plant, contrary to popular belief. Marijuana is probably what springs to mind ­– the variety that is used recreationally for its high THC load. At the other end of the spectrum is hemp, a cannabis plant that contains less than 0.3% THC by definition.

Hemp has a variety of uses, and one of them is CBD. While its THC quantity is low, hemp can contain plenty of cannabidiol. Manufacturers extract this for use in CBD supplements, ensuring that the THC content stays barely traceable while packing tinctures with cannabidiol.

It’s true that you can find decent amounts of CBD in some marijuana strains. However, for the purposes of supplements, hemp is the primary source.

Why Do People Use CBD?

There are lots of reasons why people use CBD. Research into this compound is ongoing, and so the benefits are not one hundred percent clinically proven. That said, combining the wealth of anecdotal evidence with the mounting number of positive studies, it’s easy to see why many people are trying these products.

You may sometimes see information online that touts CBD as a panacea; however, this is not true. It could nevertheless have a positive benefit on your overall wellbeing if you use the right product that works for you. People find all sorts of beneficial results when using CBD frequently and consistently. Generally, users employ it as an all-around health product that supports an otherwise healthy lifestyle.

Most of the clinical evidence so far comes from animal studies, which must be taken with a pinch of salt. After all, the human body is not exactly like a rat’s body.

What we do know is that the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared CBD generally safe, non-toxic, and non-addictive in humans, so there’s no harm in giving it a try.

How CBD Works

Scientists think that CBD works by interacting with the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This is a network of receptors that exists throughout the entire body, regulating a multitude of functions. The system works using endocannabinoids, messenger molecules that are similar to the cannabinoids from plants, but the body produces them naturally.

The similarity between endocannabinoids and phytocannabinoids (from cannabis) allows compounds like THC and CBD to affect the human body. While THC may engage directly with the receptors, CBD may prevent endocannabinoids from being broken down, allowing them to do their job for longer. The exact mechanism is still up for debate, but we know that CBD does not bind directly to the receptors.

So, why is that important?

Endocannabinoids exist to regulate the body and maintain homeostasis. Once their job is done, enzymes break them down. By preventing this, CBD ensures that the endocannabinoids can regulate the body for longer periods of time. It has a knock-on effect on numerous physiological functions.

So far, it appears that the effects of CBD are mostly positive. The vast reach of the endocannabinoid system ensures that ingesting CBD can have wide-reaching effects on the body. That is why it is suited to being an overall wellness product.

Final Thoughts on CBD

For those interested in trying CBD, there are numerous products available. CBD oil used to be the only option, but there are now hundreds to try. Whether you opt for an oral tincture, tasteless CBD capsules, delicious CBD gummies, or a soothing CBD topical, there’s something for everyone.

Remember, CBD is not the only cannabinoid. It’s common for products to contain multiple cannabinoids like CBN (cannabinol) and CBG (cannabigerol); these products are usually under the label ‘full-spectrum’ or ‘broad-spectrum.’ Alternatively, a CBD isolate is a product containing almost pure cannabidiol.

New users might have many more questions about CBD and its uses. Make sure to check out the wealth of information right here on the Premium Jane blog to learn everything you need to know.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is an increasingly used food supplement. It is becoming popular the world over, and as more information is released about this compound, consumers are becoming intrigued by the endocannabinoid system. This term is often thrown around on the websites of CBD brands, but is it just fancy terminology to sell to the consumer?

As it turns out, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is extremely important. This network of cannabinoid receptors might just be vital to our survival. Furthermore, the ECS can work with CBD for potentially beneficial effects on our health.

Today, we will investigate this prolific system to find out just how useful it can be for CBD consumers.

What Is the Endocannabinoid System?

The endocannabinoid system is a vital bodily system responsible for maintaining a wealth of physiological functions. At a basic level, the ECS consists of cannabinoid receptors scattered throughout the human body.

Within the ECS, there are also molecules called endocannabinoids. The ‘endo’ means internal, hinting to the fact that the body produces these molecules by itself. Endocannabinoids, including anandamide, are made whenever the body needs them.

Even though you are unaware of these processes, the endocannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors are continually interacting. Here’s how it works. The body detects a change either internally or in the external environment, and it produces the required endocannabinoids for the job. These endocannabinoids travel around the body and bind to the corresponding cannabinoid receptor, fitting together like a lock and key. The process of them binding triggers various responses around the body, which allow it to adapt.

Once the endocannabinoids have done their job, enzymes appear to break them down so that they don’t remain in the body longer than necessary. It’s a very efficient system that works to regulate almost everything we do. So, what is the ECS responsible for?

What Is the Endocannabinoid System Responsible for?

Cannabinoid receptors are present in pretty much every part of the body. Scientists have identified two primary receptors: CB1 and CB2. The CB1 receptors are found mainly in the brain and central nervous system (CNS), while the CB2 receptors appear more in organs, tissues, and the immune system.

To simplify the role of the endocannabinoid system: It maintains homeostasis. Homeostasis refers to a state of balance in the body, ensuring that we always keep the right temperature, etcetera.

But saying that the ECS merely maintains homeostasis downplays the vast number of things it appears to do in the body. The ECS is intricately connected to a massive range of different functions, including:

  • Metabolism and appetite
  • Mood and stress
  • Liver function
  • Inflammation and pain
  • Learning and memory
  • Sleep cycle
  • Motor control
  • Skin and nerve function

This isn’t even an exhaustive list. Research has shown the ECS to be involved in almost all areas of the body. Initially, scientists thought that the ECS might be limited to the brain since it was discovered during research of the psychoactive cannabinoid THC. However, the discovery of CB2 receptors in various bodily tissues disproved this.

The ECS has a lot of responsibility, so it’s vital to keep this system healthy.

The Endocannabinoid System: A Bridge Between Body and Mind

Scientists are only just beginning to understand the endocannabinoid system. We know that endocannabinoid receptors can be found almost everywhere in the body, but it’s unclear how science can utilize these receptors to create new, more efficient pharmaceuticals, for example.

Research into the ECS is, nevertheless, exciting. In an article for The Scientist, Dr. Nick DiPatrizio described how the ECS might be a bridge between the body and the mind. Dr. DiPatrizio knew that endocannabinoids were responsible for controlling the appetite of rats, but he was utterly bewildered by how this was taking place. After a little help from his mentor, DiPatrizio realized that he had been looking for signals in the brain, not the body. The article reads that “It has been known for some time that the brain can modulate the gut. With endocannabinoids, it appears the gut can also modify the brain.”

Furthermore, an article by Dr. Dustin Sulak for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) describes the relationship between body and mind in the ECS. Dr. Sulak notes that cannabinoids alter human behavior and bodily function, emphasizing the enormous role of the ECS in maintaining both mental and physical health.

Certainly, findings like these are exciting. They force us to rethink everything we know about brain signaling.

How Does CBD Affect the ECS?

One of the primary reasons that the general public is interested in the ECS is due to the way it can interact with CBD. The endocannabinoid system and CBD have an exciting relationship, and the ECS is the only reason CBD can have an effect on us at all.

Scientists aren’t precisely sure how CBD interacts with the cannabinoid system. When it comes to THC, we know that it binds to CB1 receptors directly and overstimulates them, causing a high. Experts also know that CBD binds directly to neither the CB1 receptor nor the CB2 receptor.

There are a few possibilities. Some scientists believe that CBD prevents the endocannabinoids from being broken down, leading to increased endocannabinoid levels in the body. Since they are there for longer, the endocannabinoids can work to maintain homeostasis. A few researchers believe that CBD could bind to a cannabinoid receptor that hasn’t been discovered yet.

Regardless of how exactly it works, CBD is thought to have a positive influence on the ECS. If it does, in fact, increase the number of endocannabinoids in the body, then it can support healthy endocannabinoid system function, keeping the body in homeostasis. In other words, taking CBD could support general health and wellbeing.

Endocannabinoid Deficiency

Another reason why CBD might be beneficial is clinical endocannabinoid deficiency. Some researchers think that an ECS dysfunction in which the body doesn’t produce enough endocannabinoids could be to blame for a considerable number of illnesses.

In 2016, a comprehensive review was published in Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, which found that endocannabinoid deficiency could be responsible for ailments such as migraines, fibromyalgia, IBS, and more.

If this were true, the discovery of clinical endocannabinoid deficiency might lead to a better understanding of the causes of these conditions. In turn, we may start to see more effective treatments.

For now, the general population can consume CBD oil food supplements as a means of supporting a healthy endocannabinoid system. Since this system is essential in keeping the body stable, it is vital to keep the ECS up and running. Scientists aren’t exactly sure about what role CBD could play, but it appears to have a positive impact on the ECS no matter what the exact mechanisms are.

In an industry described as being akin to the ‘Wild West’ due to the lack of regulation, it pays to learn and understand as much as you can about marijuana. One of the most important considerations one must make when searching for a cannabis brand is the method of extraction it uses.

Companies of a dubious reputation potentially cut corners and utilize chemical solvents such as lighter fluid (butane) and hexane. Aside from cheating customers out of valuable terpenes, chemical solvent extraction results in a product with possibly harmful residues. Do you feel comfortable ingesting yet more chemicals?

If the answer is “no,” you need to purchase CBD and THC from brands that use CO2 extraction only! This process kills harmful bacteria and ensures more terpenes and cannabinoids end up in the CBD product.

The process is becoming a popular one, and science backs it. A study by Jin et al., published in the March 2010 edition of Natural Product Communications, looked at supercritical CO2 extraction of a type of Japanese Cypress. The research team was able to determine the essential oil composition of the leaves and trunks of the tree.

What Is CO2 Extraction?

CO2 extraction uses pressurized carbon dioxide to take as many desirable cannabinoids from a marijuana or hemp plant as possible. It involves taking out the plant’s essential waxes, cannabinoids, and terpenes. In the end, CO2 oil is a healthy-looking amber-colored oil which you can use as a tincture or vaporize.

Manufacturers use carbon dioxide because it is a versatile, ‘tunable’ solvent. It acts as a solvent at a specific temperature and pressure range. However, it doesn’t have the dangers associated with solvents. As a result, consumers benefit from a premium-quality, clean oil with no toxic by-products.

Did you know that CO2 extraction is a standard extraction method in the herbal supplement and food industries? If you drink decaffeinated coffee, for example, you are already using a product that relies on carbon dioxide extraction to remove caffeine from coffee beans. Also, the gas is an extraction solvent in essential oil production.

These companies realized that conventional processes for extracting different components from food products had limitations regarding wastefulness, flammability, and solvent toxicity. Before the use of supercritical CO2 extraction, brands relied on solvents such as ethyl acetate, methylene chloride, and trichloroethane for decaffeination!

What Is CO2 Supercritical Extraction?

Although there are other methods, supercritical CO2 extraction is widely regarded as the industry’s gold standard. Carbon dioxide has the most reliable link with the process which is known as supercritical fluid extraction. It is the process of using supercritical fluids to separate one component from another. CO2 is the most commonly used fluid in this process, although it is occasionally modified by a co-solvent such as methanol or ethanol.

Scientists among you know that carbon dioxide presents as a gas at standard pressure and temperature. Supercritical CO2, on the other hand, is the fluid state of the gas, which takes place above its critical pressure and temperature.

CO2’s Supercritical Region

Here is a quick step-by-step guide to supercritical CO2 extraction:

  • The extractor takes CO2 in its gaseous form and runs it through a chamber. At this stage, it is subjected to heightened pressure and temperature as low as -70 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • The gas changes into a fluid.
  • It is in this state that CO2 showcases its unique properties once reheated and pressurized. A supercritical fluid has properties between a gas and a liquid. For example, it maintains the density of a liquid while filling space like a gas.
  • The special fluid passes through a chamber that contains the raw hemp or marijuana material.
  • The fluid passes through the raw material and dissolves the trichomes’ membranes. As a result, the process captures a significant proportion of the active compounds.

According to the February 2010 edition of Chemical Engineering, CO2 has a critical temperature of approximately 89.78 degrees Fahrenheit. Its critical pressure is 73.8 bars, the equivalent of 7.38 million Pascals, or 1,070 pounds per square inch.

A study by Peach and Eastoe, published in the Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry in August 2014, discussed supercritical CO2, describing it as “a solvent like no other.” The study looked at how supercritical CO2 could become a major aspect of a movement towards green chemistry.

In case you were wondering, there is also subcritical CO2 extraction. It isn’t as common a method as its supercritical cousin, mainly because it takes more time and produces less material. Subcritical is a similar process to supercritical, except it requires lower pressure and a lower temperature.

While it is a longer and less efficient process, it provides a high-quality product because it retains terpenes, cannabinoids, and essential oils.

A supercritical system produces a thicker substance with a consistency akin to that of peanut butter. This is because the higher pressures and temperatures extract larger molecules, including waxes, chlorophyll, and omega-3 and 6 lipids. Then, the ‘winterization’ process removes these substances, which leaves behind the cannabinoid oil only.

In contrast, subcritical extraction produces a material with a consistency similar to molasses.

Benefits of CO2 Extraction

One of the primary benefits of using a cannabis extract from CO2 extraction is its status as a ‘green solvent.’ Whether it is CBD extraction or THC extraction, the use of carbon dioxide provides a cleaner and healthier product. We produce CO2 naturally as part of the breathing process when we exhale.

Unlike solvents such as butane, CO2 extraction contains no nasty chemical residues. It is also recyclable and cost-effective.

Supercritical CO2 extraction has unique properties.

  • It is non-flammable, inert, and non-toxic.
  • The process has moderate critical constants.
  • You can fine-tune the solvation strength by adjusting the liquid’s density.
  • As carbon dioxide leaves a low level of residue compared to other solvents, you should find large quantities in pure form.
  • The critical temperature of CO2 is near-ambient, which means it is an ideal solvent for temperature-sensitive materials.

The Entourage Effect

While a clean product is essential, perhaps the biggest benefit of CO2 extraction is its capacity to extract dozens of cannabinoids and terpenes. The marijuana plant has over 110 identified cannabinoids and hundreds of terpenes and flavonoids. Even though THC and CBD both have an array of purported benefits, an increasing number of experts now believe that weed and hemp’s real ‘magic’ involves a combination of its terpenes and cannabinoids.

Cannabinoids such as cannabinol (CBN) and cannabigerol (CBG) are not as abundant as CBD and THC, but potentially have health benefits of their own. For example, CBG could have neuroprotective properties. Meanwhile, CBN has a link with a significant decrease in pain levels.

Then there is the small matter of terpenes. For example, alpha-pinene could counteract memory loss associated with THC. Myrcene may reduce resistance in the blood-brain barrier and lead to a more comfortable passage of helpful chemicals in the body.

The list goes on and on. The entourage effect suggests that cannabinoids and terpenes work better together than in isolation. While a high-quality THC or CBD isolate has its uses, a full-spectrum product is potentially a better bet.

Although ‘CO2 oil’ is the best around, don’t be shocked to learn that low-cost cannabis you desire does not involve CO2 extraction.

CO2 Extraction Equipment

There is no getting around the fact that supercritical CO2 extraction is expensive. Therefore, companies that invest in it usually provide the best quality hemp and marijuana oils.

We have found a CO2 extraction machine that costs $445,000, and there are certainly more expensive models. The equipment in question is the Apeks Supercritical CO2 system. It processes up to 200 pounds of dried material each day – an incredible amount. The system will tackle the biggest workloads in the industry, and is perfect for gigantic manufacturers. Its features include:

  • The ability to perform supercritical and subcritical extractions.
  • Full automation.
  • An equipped carbon dioxide storage tank.

The Hi-Flo FX2 20L 5K machine is another behemoth and costs approximately $175,000. It can process up to 107-pounds of biomass each day and offers a maximum of 5,000 psi, not to mention rapid change-over. While the capacity isn’t the biggest in the industry, it is undoubtedly not suitable unless your operation is massive.

The brand also has a 3x2000L model with a load capacity of 3,000 pounds! This particular machine has an extraction run time of between 4.5 and 6 hours, and like the smaller model, offers an average of 15% yield.

If you are on a tight budget, the Super C Extractor is available for ‘just’ $4,000. It looks like a doll-house compared to the giants of the market, but it is perfect for small-scale businesses. It can process an ounce of material at a time with a maximum pressure of 4,500 psi

Final Thoughts on CO2 Extraction

Ultimately, when you are purchasing hemp oil and cannabis oil, it is best to save your money and wait for products where supercritical CO2 extraction is involved. First and foremost, it increases the likelihood of getting a ‘clean’ and healthy product due to the lack of harmful chemical residue.

Secondly, such products typically contain a full-spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes. An increasing number of experts in the field recommend such products and believe they are superior to isolates. Finally, supercritical CO2 extraction equipment is expensive, so you know companies that use it are serious about providing the best products around.

While CO2 extracted marijuana, oil is ultimately more expensive, you unquestionably get what you pay for.
