While all cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil is non-psychoactive, some patients have special reasons for wanting to completely avoid the fractional 0.3% trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) the remains in broad spectrum hemp oils. As of recently, zero-THC (0.0%) hemp oil products have been made available.
Demands for CBD hemp oils are rapidly rising, as scientists discover that CBD can potentially reduce seizures, pain, anxiety, and inflammation, as well as provide antioxidant and neuroprotective effects that can be potentially beneficial for neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s disease and some cancers. While the research finds on CBD have been promising, there are many patients who remain hesitant to incorporate CBD into their treatment because of the presence of THC. It’s important to understand that CBD hemp oil is made from high-CBD hemp that contains no more than 0.3 percent THC, far less than the amount needed to experience a high. Instead, CBD dominates the makeup of the hemp plant. CBD itself is non-psychoactive, and studies show it even counteracts the psychoactive properties of THC.
Some scientists believe that hemp oil containing all the cannabinoids and other compounds extracted from the plant is more therapeutically beneficial than isolated cannabinoids. The “entourage effect,” introduced in 1998 by renowned cannabinoid researchers Raphael Mechoulam and Shimon Ben-Shabat, maintains that isolated or synthetic cannabinoids aren’t as effective for eliciting curative effects as when all the plant’s natural constituents work together synergistically.
Still, there are many reasons why patients may prefer to avoid all THC. For example, THC-free products offer an option for active military that want to incorporate CBD for pain or post -traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) but are prohibited from consuming products containing THC. First responders – such as firefighters, police officers, and EMTs – can now benefit from the balancing properties of CBD without fear of violating their employers’ restrictions. Competing athletes, many of who face restrictive testing policies from their sports’ governing bodies, can incorporate CBD into their regimen without fear of negative consequences. Parents of children who rely on the balancing properties of CBD to reduce seizure activity or manage symptoms of autism often prefer to avoid exposing their kids to even trace amounts of THC that exist in other hemp oil products.
As of just recently, at least one CBD hemp oil manufacturer has developed a hemp oil product that is 100 percent THC free. After the oil is extracted from the stalks and seed of hemp plants, producers isolate CBD compounds. This process eliminates the THC and all other plant constituents, leaving pure CBD. Some manufacturers blend isolated cannabinoids with wholesome liquid oils containing fatty acids for easy administration and to help improve absorption.
CBD hemp oil products, including those that are THC free, are legally available in most major markets.
“My 13 year old, 80 pound, chow/lab mix had to be helped to stand because of arthritis in her rear hips. I bought the CBD oil from this establishment and one hour after the first dose she actually stood on her own. She is also walking up and down the steps on her own. It hasn’t turned her back into puppy status, but it sure has eased her pains. I started her on 7 drops, twice a day. Last week I upped it to 8 drops, twice a day. A 1 ounce bottle has lasted just over 2 months. Many thanks to the helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly staff at Florida Medical Marijuana Health Center for their excellent service and advice. Great place to go!!”
“I had the best experience ever in front of me when I had my appointment with Fla medical marijuana health. Center The doctor was so concerning and helpful in making my decision on getting my card. I would recommend this health center to anyone. Great experience!”
“Professional service with informative doctor and staff to help make the process go smoothly. I would highly recommend to anyone considering a medical marijuana card. They also have great quality CBD products.”
“I have been with the Clinic since around September 2017 and I love these guys! They have helped me through the process to receive my MMJ card at an affordable price. I have even renewed there at my 6 months because the Medical Marijuana helps to relieve some of the pain I have due to a Tarlov Cyst 1.1cm on my S3. It helps with depression caused by the Cyst pain. The MMJ helps relieve some of the pain which allows me to be able to stand longer and walk better. I also suffer Wet AMD and take quarterly eye injections to prevent further blindness which is depressing too. I take it before receiving the shot which calms me. At night I use the Concentrate which improves my sleep. The clinic has an office lady named Stephanie that has helped me through issues when I was first certified. The owners have worked with changing their doctor that is much more understanding to patients needs. I will continue to use this place because I know I am taken care of!”
