What is CBD or CBD oil?


CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a natural ingredient of the cannabis plant. In addition to more than a hundred cannabinoids, the Cannabis Sativa L. plant also contains terpenes (essential oils), flavonoids (secondary plant compounds), proteins, amino acids and much more. In total, there are said to be over 500 different ingredients.

CBD is a cannabinoid that is very similar to our body's own endocannabinoids. This is probably why cannabinoids like CBD and THC can bind to the CB1 and CB2 receptors in our bodies. In this way, they are supposed to have an influence on various processes in the human organism. What exactly these are, however, still needs to be researched. However, it is already clear that CBD, unlike THC, is not psychoactive and therefore has no intoxicating effect.

On the other hand, people with extensive CBD experience report that the use or intake of cannabidiol has various health benefits for them. Thus, regular users speak of an anti-inflammatory, anxiety-relieving and calming effect of CBD. It is also often said that CBD alleviates back pain and that one should sleep better or deeper with the help of hemp oil. What positive effects CBD actually has on our health and well-being, however, must still be tested in more detail by scientific studies.

So what is CBD oil? As you have probably guessed, CBD oil is a special oil that contains CBD. However, the exact composition of such CBD oils can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and product to product. It also depends on the carrier oils used. However, what they all have in common is that this type of hemp oil has CBD in it. If you're wondering now how the CBD gets in there, you'll get the answer to that here.

Basically, you only need two ingredients to make CBD oil, namely a suitable carrier oil and some CBD extract. This extract is obtained by extraction from the flowers of the commercial hemp plant, as the plant has a particularly high CBD content and a vanishingly low THC content. This CBD extract is then mixed with the selected carrier oil (VAAY uses MCT oil for this). Et voilà, the CBD oil is ready. In practice, of course, the whole thing is a bit more complicated. By the way, did you know that all VAAY products have a THC content of less than 0.01%?


What is the difference between hemp oil and CBD oil?

When you search for CBD products on the internet, you often come across different terms like hemp oil, hemp oil CBD, CBD oil or CBD full spectrum oil. If you want to know what is behind all these product names, we are happy to help you. You already know what CBD oil is. But now the question arises, what is the exact difference between hemp oil and CBD oil.

Hemp oil is now a general generic term that stands for a wide variety of hemp oil products. Whether a hemp oil contains CBD, you should always check carefully. It can also be conventional hemp seed oil. This form of edible oil is made from hemp seeds and is mostly used in the kitchen or as a carrier oil for CBD products. You can also buy the seeds as they are and make hemp seed oil from them yourself. However, the private cultivation of hemp plants is prohibited in Germany so far.

Before buying CBD, it is recommended to pay close attention to the price of the oil and to read hemp oil reviews and product descriptions. This way you can make sure that your chosen hemp oil contains CBD or full-spectrum hemp extract. Full spectrum CBD oil is when the added hemp extract has not been artificially purified. The aim of this is not to lose valuable ingredients of the hemp plant such as cannabinoids (no THC!) and terpenes. There is namely the theory that through the interaction of all ingredients of the hemp plant a so-called entourage effect can arise. This is supposed to strengthen the potential effect of hemp products overall. However, this effect has yet to be confirmed by the scientific community.

 

What is CBD hemp oil used for?


Hemp oil with CBD or broad spectrum hemp extract is used, among other things, for the production of hemp oil capsules or as CBD drops and oral sprays. For example, our CBD Oil 5% contains 5% percent CBD from broad spectrum hemp extract as well as valuable MCT oil. However, if the pure taste of hemp is not your thing, you can try our CBD oils with natural mint, lemon or herbal flavors. Unlike capsules or drops, you can simply spray these into your mouth and use them for about 30 seconds for your oral hygiene. Note, however, not to swallow the CBD oil afterwards.
