What you should know about hemp oils

The cannabis plant is a rich source of plant-based cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids) like cannabidiol, tetrahydrocannabinol, cannabigerol, etc… These phytocannabinoids can be extracted from hemp extract and the flowers of the cannabis plant.

What is hemp oil?

Hemp oil, just as the name implies, is obtained by cold pressing the seeds of the hemp plant. The plant is generally rich in cannabidiol and may contain little traces of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which can be used for different therapeutic activities. Over 100 different cannabinoids have been identified from the cannabis plant and can interact with the endocannabinoid receptors to control appetite, boost the production of hormones, regulate pain control and sensation, trigger the production of new brain cells and most importantly, affect our mood. Clinical and laboratory research has successfully identified hemp extract to exhibit several therapeutic activities, including those relating to anticancer, antitumor, anti-inflammation, antidepressant, antioxidant and antimicrobial properties.

Although cannabidiol can interact with the ECS receptors, the mechanism of action is not yet known thus the reason for several clinical and laboratory researches aimed at exploring its health benefits and that of other phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids from plant origin).

How is cannabidiol extracted?

Cannabidiol is extracted using a wide range of methods pre-determined by the nature and use of the final product. These products vary from pure isolates, full-spectrum to broad-spectrum products. They contain different levels and concentration of cannabidiol in combination with terpenes, flavonoids and essential oils. The most commonly utilized methods of extraction include but are not limited to;

CO2 extraction:

this involves the use of supercritical carbon dioxide as an extraction solvent. It is the purest and most effective method of extraction and is used in the food industry and other commercial processes involved in making omega-3 oil and coffee.

Ethanol extraction:

in this method, ethanol is utilized as the solvent of choice to remove cannabidiol from the hemp extract. This method is fast, less expensive and requires less power to carry out. When using this method of extraction, extra caution must be taken since ethanol is highly flammable.

Benefits of hemp oil

The health benefits of hemp oil cannot be overemphasized. It has successfully interacted with the ECS receptors (CB1 and CB2) to produce the following effects;

  • Alleviation of cancer-related symptoms
  • Can assist in the treatment of arthritis and other bone-related medical conditions
