There are about 1250 unique chemical compounds found in cannabis plants. Hundreds of these are terpenoids. Terpenoids are the compounds that give fruits, flowers and herbs many of the desirable aromas, flavors and other special qualities. Cannabinoids are a subclass of terpenoids. There are over 144 cannabinoids found in cannabis.
The endocannabinoid system, which takes its name from the plant that led to its discovery, is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors found in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous system and organs. It consists of neuroregulatory lipids and their receptors. In other words, it is an “administrative and controlling” set of biochemical communication regulatory mechanisms and deals with cannabinoid-like substances (endocannabinoids) naturally produced by the human body in general and by the brain in particular, where the receptors are concentrated in regions are related to thought, memory, coordination, pleasure and perception of time. The endocannabinoid system is one of the most important biological control systems that help regulate basic body functions.
Endocannabinoid receptors regulate many body functions including:
- The appetite
- The digestion
- Immune function
- Motor control
- Pleasure and Reward
- Reproduction and fertility
- Temperature regulation
Cannnabidiol (CBD) oil is extracted from the stems, seeds, and flowers of industrial cannabis plants. CBD oil is a cannabis oil containing significant amounts of cannabidiol (CBD). The supercritical CO2 extraction process also keeps all other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and nutrients and contains only traces of THC (less than 0.2%).
Cannabidiol(CBD) is the main cannabinoid of industrial cannabis (Cannabis sativa L.). In recent years, CBD’s therapeutic potential has increased, which does not cause psychotropic effects, is not psychoactive (cannot get high) and even at high doses does not cause relevant side effects. Its chemical formula is C21H30O2.

The concentrations of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in industrial cannabis oil are not close enough to have any effect on you: Cannabis sativa L. plants generally contain only traces of THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol is the cannabinoid targeting drug controls. These tests look for the metabolic products of tetrahydrocannabinol and start with a simple urine test. The test uses antibodies to detect THC and the metabolite it produces, known by the rather complex name of “11-nor-delta9-caboxy-THC (THC-COOH)”. If the initial test finds that you have more than 50 nanograms of these substances in your urine, a gas / mass spectrometry (GC / MS) test is performed to confirm the result. This test targets the metabolite 11-nor-THCCOOH and is not sensitive to other cannabinoids, including cannabidiol.
Cannabidiol is non-psychoactive, which means you cannot “get high” or commonly get stoned by the consumption of cannabisol oil drops as well as any other natural cannabis product. Our cannabidiol products are all made of industrial hemp, which contains only traces of THC (less than 0.2%), so there is no psychoactive effect from taking them. The following products do not contain any traces of THC and are completely free from THC: CBD Aqua Drops, pure CBD, CBG crystals, CBD E-Liquid and Hemp Terpenes.
CO2 extraction is a process using compressed carbon dioxide (CO2) to extract phytochemicals (such as CBD, CBG or terpenes, flavonoids, etc.) from a plant. CO2 at certain temperatures and pressures acts as a solvent, without the risk of a real solvent. It is the most expensive extraction method and is widely considered the most effective and safest method of extracting plants.
The effects of CBD will vary from person to person. Depending on the amount received, the method of administration / application and the condition the recipient is trying to alleviate.
The unwanted effects of the CBD are almost negligible. They are certainly far less than those listed in the terrible lists with the side effects that appear in many pharmaceuticals. Perhaps a small stomach discomfort for those who take high doses and some suppressive effects of very low level. It’s similar to using a drop of lavender oil on your skin that can relax you. The CBD does not produce psychotropic effects, so there is no etiquette or some special concern about your ability to function normally.
The dosage of CBD differs for each individual according to the needs and conditions that one tries to alleviate. For some applications, a small dose of CBD is required to achieve optimal results, while in other cases, a higher dose is required.
Important note: the tactic we use with all cannabis formulations is embedded in a simple rule, “we start low and we move slowly,” meaning that for example in the CBD oil we start with a drop for a few days and then grow to 2 drops for a few days , in 3 drops for a few days, etc. until we find the amount that has an effect on our symptoms. If we do not find this “sweet point / sweet spot” as it may be, we may need to stay on the doses for longer periods. A lot has been written about dosing and we expect to write a lot more as our knowledge and our experience with hemp increases.
Scientifically and genetically, industrial cannabis and hemp are the same plant, the genus and name of the species is Cannabis Sativa. Industrial cannabis (hemp) is always a variety of Cannabis Sativa, while cannabis can be Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica or Cannabis Ruderalis. The main difference is how cannabis is cultivated compared to a Cannabis Sativa cannabis. Industrial cannabis is very fibrous, with long strong stalks and has minimal flowering eyes, while a variety of Cannabis Sativa cannabis will be a smaller plant
bushy and flowering buds. Cannabis usually has a high THC content and only a very low amount of non-psychoactive cannabinoids such as CBD.
Industrial cannabis, on the other hand, naturally has a very high CBD content and only traces of THC.
Fortunately, the cannabis profile of industrial cannabis is ideal for people seeking to benefit from cannabis without any euphoric effect.
Industrial cannabis is used for the manufacture of medical drugs, food, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, natural plastic and many others, while cannabis is commonly used recreationally, pneumatically and medically.
Our extracts come from cannabis plants. People sometimes report it as cannabis oil, as cannabis can technically describe both industrial cannabis and (cannabis) cannabis. In our case, the term cannabis oil is obviously used to describe cannabis oils with a high CBD content and a negligible amount of THC (<0.2%).
An industrial cannabis extract is a substance or active ingredient with desirable properties removed from the cannabis / cannabis plant tissue by a solvent treatment.
Industrial cannabis extracts are also known as CBD oil because they contain a high percentage of cannabidiol.
The extraction method used is important for the quality of the complete extract and for the active substances it contains (the plant chemical profile, Phytocomplex / Plant Complex).
The other 90% of an extract consists of: low concentrations of other phyto-cannabinoids and other types of natural molecules and phytochemicals such as cannabis wax, amino acids, carbohydrates, vitamins, fatty acids, chlorophyll, flavonoids, ketones, nitrogen compounds, alkanes, glycosides, pigments, industrial cannabis seed oil, water and terpenes.
The terpenes, or terpenoids, are the ones that give hemp its aroma and make its flavor and smell spicy or sweet, depending on the variety. There are about 200 different terpenes in the cannabis plant and their properties have been proven to be therapeutic. Terpenes have the unique property of interacting with receptors and neurotransmitters and increasing dopamine levels in the body. Dopamine is also called “the neurotransmitter of joy”, as it is what makes us feel good.
Cannabinoids – including CBD – are present in the plant as carboxylic acids. In a production plant you will not find CBD but CBD-A. A here stands for acid .Although CBD-A has pharmacological properties, these are difficult to compare with the CBD. Decarboxylation converts CBD-A into CBD by separating a molecule of carbon dioxide from the present acid. This process naturally occurs, but becomes much more effective through human intervention. During decarboxylation, the plant material is heated to accelerate the natural acid decomposition process. This process is necessary to activate cannabinoids and ensures that their potential is fully exploited. In simple terms, decarboxylation is the cannabis heating process for cannabinoid activation, (for example, CBD-A conversion to CBD).
