What is CBD oil and how is it made?

CBD oil is one of the most valuable and highest quality vegetable oils considering its content of essential unsaturated fatty acids. These substances are vital for the proper functioning of our organism. It helps lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels, for example, and strengthens the cardiovascular system.

So how is this little miracle made?

Hemp oil is made from cold pressed hemp seed. It has a pleasant nutty taste and a rich green color, which indicates a high content of chlorophyll, which acts as an antioxidantin the human body, has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects and strengthens the immune system.

The hemp seed has an oil recoverability of about 30%, which means we can squeeze about 30 liters of hemp oil from 100 kg seed. When pressed, so-called compacts are still formed. These serve either as qualitative feed for livestock, e.g. horses or fish, or they are ground to hemp flour. Flour from hemp seed is gluten-free and therefore suitable for people with celiac disease.

Pressed oil from hemp seeds has virtually zero content of psychotropic substances. The seeds of industrial hemp contain trace amounts of THC and therefore cannot act as a drug. Hemp oil is also an ideal aid in lowering high cholesterol and blood sugar levels. One tablespoon daily helps prevent colon cancer or cardiovascular problems.

The most valuable substances in hemp oil are the essential unsaturated omega-3 Р(linolenic acid) and omega-6 fatty acids (alpha-linoleic acid). Essentially, they are called because the human body cannot produce them and we have to take them from the food. Hemp oil has an ideal ratio of these essential unsaturated acids of 1: 3.

Essential fatty acids are vital for the proper functioning of our organism, as they serve as building blocks for the formation of endocannabinoids. These substances function within the endocannabinoid system, which maintains the balance in all vital systems of our organism: ingestion, digestion and excretion, multiplication, regulation and protection of the nervous system, skeletomuscular, endocrine and cardiovascular functions, burning of fats and sugars, defenses.

The endocannabinoid regulatory system also helps our body deal with physiological, biochemical and psychological stress to which it is exposed in interaction with its environment.

Endocannabinoids have a positive influence on the ability of humans to gain new knowledge and to deal with it. Therefore, it is essential for the development of a young organism to ensure adequate intake of essential fatty acids.

Hemp oil is also an ideal aid in lowering high cholesterol and blood sugar levels. One tablespoon daily helps prevent colon cancer or cardiovascular problems.

According to the recommendation of nutritional experts, every adult human needs an average of 7 g of linoleic acid daily, with up to 10 g recommended daily. This equates to 50 to 60 g of hemp seeds or 15 to 20 g of hemp oil daily (1-2 tablespoons).

Because it is virgin cold pressed oil, it is mainly used in the cold kitchen, for example salads, pasta, to taste spreads or sauces. The oil must be stored in the cool and dark for about 6 months for food use – after this time, it is suitable for external use for another 3 months.

Outer treatment with hemp oil is a suitable adjunct therapy for patients with atopic eczema, psoriasis, acne or dry irritated skin. Hemp oil moisturizes the skin and makes it supple, heals very well scars or burns. Ointments containing hemp oil also relieve back, muscle and joint pain.
