What variety of CBD herb is the best?

CBD is a component of hemp that is used more and more. It is mainly used in Medicine because it has therapeutic virtues. It is extracted from cannabis herb and therefore is still accepted in very few countries. Lawmakers are generally concerned about the THC in cannabis, a substance with psychotropic properties. However, when the growing conditions for CBD are properly supervised, this should not create any particular problems. In this article, we tell you the basics about CBD production.

What is CBD?

The letters CBD stand for cannabidiol. It gets to the cannabinoid group and is found in hemp or cannabis. The latter itself belongs to the cannabaceae family. Its tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content depends on the variety. It is used for different purposes and in different fields ranging from civil engineering to medicine, through the food industry, etc.

Industrial hemp is used to produce safe CBD. This has a THC content of less than 0.2? One thing to remember is that you don't have to worry about mind-altering effects with CBD, unlike THC.

CBD production process

Human intervention is sufficiently reduced in the cultivation of cannabis. However, the follow-up of a person is necessary if you have the ambition to obtain a good return. The first thing to do in this case is to choose between outdoor cultivation, indoor cultivation and greenhouse cultivation, whichever is most appropriate for you. Each type of crop has its advantages and its small flaws.

Outdoor cultivation has the advantage of being economical and ecological. The yield achieved with this type of culture is not bad and the flowers are sufficiently robust. The risk is that the crop is exposed to weather and insects. The protection of the culture by the greenhouse allows a better control of the parameters of culture. Optimal plant growth can therefore be expected. In addition, you do not have to fear insects although you do not use chemical fertilizers. As for indoor cultivation, it can be done in a closet or inside sheds. The main disadvantage here is that cultivation requires a large supply of electrical energy. Exposure to insects is not, however, reduced.

After choosing the type of crop, you need to define the land for cultivation. The soil must be sufficiently rich in micro elements. A good quality soil saves you from having to use large amounts of chemical fertilizers. So you can claim organic flowers. The environment would therefore be spared.

The type of water you use for growing CBD is also important. If outdoor cultivation does not require the use of a lot of water, other types of cultivation would consume more. The pH of your water must therefore be within regulatory limits to facilitate the transport of nutrients and oxygen to plants and thus contribute to their growth. Neutral water must have a pH of 7. If your water is too basic or too acidic, it is quite possible to adjust the pH by adding certain products in given proportions. The use of fertilizers can thus make it possible to lower the pH of tap water.

CBD extraction

After growing cannabis, you need to move on to extracting CBD and possibly other substances of interest. Alcohol, oil or supercritical carbon dioxide can be used. The latter method extracts all of the CBD as well as other substances from cannabis. Its main strength is that the plants are not heated, so that heat-sensitive compounds are retained. The method is expensive.

On the other hand, if you are extracting with oil, you have to heat the plant, which means that you lose all the other substances and only get back the pure CBD. This method is even more expensive than the previous one.

Finally, alcohol makes it possible to extract CBD without great expense. The process is relatively slow and you are not keeping all the elements of the plant.

So it all depends on the goal pursued when you produce CBD.

What is CBD? Cannabidiol and Marijuana Facts.

As demand for CBD continues to skyrocket, the CBD industry has developed into a unique market that is independent, yet still closely related to the Cannabis industry, including its controversial reputation and shifting legalities.

Due to the confusion and complications that this can present for CBD users, it has become increasingly important to understand the difference between hemp and marijuana and how they relate to Cannabis.

Cannabidiol and Marijuana- There is a difference!

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). 

While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp, which is a related to marijuana but is actually different. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.” According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”

It seems that everywhere you look these days on mainstream media, magazines, and newspapers, people are talking about the potential health benefits of CBD. Many people are talking about CBD as the next superfood, but what are the facts?

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the main active cannabinoids found in both the hemp and marijuana plants. Unlike the other main cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD has no psychoactive properties at all. 

What does this mean? Unlike THC, which leaves users with a euphoric high, CBD doesn’t get you high and won’t. Most people report a feeling of relaxation after consuming CBD. 

CBD comes from both the hemp and marijuana plants. Both plants belong to the cannabis sativa plant family, but each has unique differences. Industrial hemp plants are high in CBD but contain less than 0.3% THC. Marijuana plants, on the other hand, are much higher in THC. You can get strains of marijuana that are high in both THC and CBD, but it’s hard to separate the two cannabinoids. 

When & Where did CBD become legal?

In 2018 the US legislator passed the 2018 US Farm Bill making it legal to grow industrial hemp plants and produce products from hemp at a federal level across the United States. However, each state has its laws and not all states have ratified their laws to come into line with the new federal regulations. 

The popularity of CBD oils and other CBD products is increasing at such a rapid pace that it's outpacing government regulations regarding the use, manufacture, the age to buy CBD, and the sale of CBD products. You must always purchase your CBD products from reputable CBD companies that stand behind their products and back them up with independent third-party laboratory reports.

Here at Ancient Herb CBD we pride ourselves in providing quality, fully tested CBD products manufactured by reputable companies. It is important to understand that, in general, the law is more favorable to CBD produced from hemp than from marijuana, and products sold by our company are produced exclusively from hemp. Also, any of our products that contain THC have only 0.3% which is considered an undetectable level of THC and shouldn’t cause any psychoactive symptoms. 

Why take CBD

Cannabis has been used for medical purposes across the world for centuries. CBD has a lot of potential as a natural alternative to a variety of different pharmaceutical products.

How does CBD interact with our bodies?

Inside everyone, regardless of whether they have consumed any cannabis products, is something known as the Endocannabinoid System. Even cats and dogs have an ECS, which is why CBD products are helpful for animals as well as people. 

Our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids, but sometimes when we’re sick or run down, our bodies don’t produce enough of these endocannabinoids. 

That’s where phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids that come from plants) such as cannabidiol can be useful to boost our low levels of endocannabinoids. 

The ECS is made up of a series of receptors that are spread throughout the body and central nervous system. These receptors are all linked together like a chain. When you take CBD products, the cannabinoids enter the bloodstream and interact with the receptors in the ECS. Cannabidiol (CBD) binds with the CB1 and CB2 receptors.

When CBD binds with the receptors in the ECS, it creates a chemical reaction, which sends different messages to our body and brain. One of the great things about CBD is how versatile it is.

CBD can be taken as an oil, edibles, applied as a topical cream or lotion, inhaled as a vapor, or taken as supplements and a variety of other options. There truly is a delivery system to suit every condition and person. 

CBD has very little in the way of any serious negative side-effects and is non-addictive. It’s because of this that so many people prefer to use CBD instead of pharmaceutical medications. However currently, the FDA does not regulate the safety and purity of dietary supplements. So you cannot know for sure that the product you buy has active ingredients at the dose listed on the label. In addition, the product may contain other (unknown) elements. We also don’t know the most effective therapeutic dose of CBD for any particular medical condition.

The most important thing is that anyone, especially anyone under 21, speaks with their doctor or healthcare provider before trying any CBD products. 

How old do you have to be to buy CBD?

The way laws and regulations stand in the United States regarding CBD and how old you have to be to buy CBD oil it’s challenging to give a straight yes, or no answer to the question is CBD legal for people under 18?

Most reputable CBD companies limit the sales of CBD products to those above the age of 18 years old and have systems in place to ensure minors aren’t purchasing products that may be harmful to them. 

Here at Antient Herb CBD we require anyone who is purchasing to certify they are at least 18 years old. Please review our Terms of Use policy for more information.
