cbd oil without terpenes

According to the World Health Organization, THC-free CBD oil has no effects that indicate it may have abuse or dependence potential. Not to mention, there have been no findings of any health-related problems linked with pure CBD use. This means that you can gain the mental and physical benefits of the cannabis plant through CBD oil without the potential concerns associated with marijuana use.

If you've been considering adding CBD to your wellness routine but are concerned about possible side effects, THC-free CBD oil is a great place to start. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the part of the cannabis plant that's responsible for psychoactive effect (in other words, the feeling of being 'high'). While some types of CBD, or cannabidiol oil, contain very trace amounts of THC, an oil that's completely THC-free ensures you're not ingesting even the tiniest bit of the ingredient. This way, you can enjoy the benefits of CBD without worrying about any psychoactive effects that may impede your work or home activities.

Why choose THC-free CBD oil?

Broad-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate are two THC-free types you may consider. Broad-spectrum contains some of the other beneficial cannabis plant compounds found in full-spectrum CBD, but it is still THC-free. On the other hand, CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD, and therefore contains no other cannabis compounds.

 Other things to consider:

Before we get into the details of these recommendations, let's go over the basics of THC-free options.

When you peel an orange in your kitchen, there’s a citrusy smell. When you hike in the woods, you smell pine all around you. Terpenes are responsible for these scents.

Each terpene has its own set of benefits. Let’s take a look at some of the most common ones found in CBD to explore how they boost health:

What are terpenes?

Terpenes are commonly found in everyday products like lotions, body creams, perfumes, and processed foods. But they’re also found in CBD products.

Most terpenes are considered bioactive. This means they have an impact on the body when they’re consumed. They bind to the brain’s receptors once they’re in the body. In turn, this produces a range of physiological responses, including the release of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. They’re often used in aromatherapy because of their effects on mood and stress level.

You want to ensure you’re getting the full effect when purchasing CBD products. Thus, you should purchase from a company like Colorado Botanicals, which specializes in keeping terpenes intact during the purification process. The company uses CO2 for lower-temperature extraction, which enables them to preserve cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids and separate THC without diluting their products. Colorado Botanicals strongly advocates for the inclusion of terpenes in CBD products and uses third-party lab reports to verify that all of their products contain them.

Certainly not. Some types of CBD oil don’t contain any terpenes at all, and no CBD extracts naturally contain as many terpenes as they should.

Caryophyllene is the only known terpene that interacts with the brain’s cannabinoid receptors. This terpene stimulates your CB2 receptors, which appear to have anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory benefits.

There are a variety of ways to spray terpenes on CBD flower. Experiment to develop the method that works best in your situation, and contact us if you have any questions.

CBD isolate

Absolutely. We strongly encourage that you add terpenes to CBD oil to maximize the potential benefits this cannabinoid can provide.

CBD isolate consists solely of the cannabidiol molecule. It doesn’t contain any terpenes whatsoever.

Linalool is responsible for the distinctive smell of lavender. This terpene has antimicrobial properties, and linalool may also help with depression, anxiety, and sleep.
