Slide 1:

How to Extract CBD From the Hemp Plant Cannabis plants contain naturally occurring compounds called cannabinoids . CBD, which is short for cannabidiol is one of the many cannabinoids found in hemp and marijuana plants and is desirable among those looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria . For legality purposes, many CBD products (containing less than .3% THC) are sourced from industrial hemp. Fourteen states within the United States can legally grow and process industrial hemp and hemp seeds.

How to Extract CBD From the Hemp Plant CBD Benefits: What Are While studies are still trying to get to the heart of the matter, it does appear as some of the best CBD Olive oil or products could have a raft of medical benefits. Anti-Inflammatory Properties: As a society, we are developing an over-reliance on pain medication to deal with issues such as inflammation. According to a study in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, CBD reduced the levels of chronic inflammation in rats and mice. CBD is also used for conditions with chronic pain such as fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis. Cancer: The British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology posted a study which suggests that CBD can block cancer cells from invading an area or spreading around the body. In summation, it could suppress cancer cell growth and possibly assist in the killing of these harmful cells.

How to Extract CBD From the Hemp Plant Mental Health Disorders: A study published in Current Pharmaceutical Design suggested that CBD had a similar effect to certain antipsychotic drugs and it was potentially safe to use on patients with schizophrenia. Further studies showed that CBD could have a positive impact when used on people with neurological disorders. It also has potential anti-seizure properties and is used by individuals with epilepsy.

How to Extract CBD From the Hemp Plant CBD Extraction Methods: The purpose of CBD extraction is to create the cannabinoid in a highly concentrated form to make it suitable for human consumption. You must use a plant material rich in CBD such as special cannabis strains or hemp. The CO2 Cannabis Extraction Method: This form of CBD extraction is actually divided into supercritical, subcritical and ‘mid-critical’ categories but supercritical is by far the most commonly used. In fact, it is the most regularly used extraction method of all because it is safe and provides a pure end product. In simple terms, CO2 cannabis extraction uses pressurized carbon dioxide (CO2) to pull CBD from the plant. CO2 acts like a solvent at certain temperatures and pressures but possesses none of the dangers. While it is safe and effective, it also involves extremely expensive equipment. The rather sophisticated machines used for the purpose work to freeze the CO2 gas and compress it into a supercritical cold liquid state.

How to Extract CBD From the Hemp Plant CBD Extraction Methods: The Olive Oil Extraction Method: While other liquids such as ethanol can be used in this process, olive oil is the most commonly used substance for this extraction which can be performed at home. The first step involves ensuring the raw plant material is decarboxylated . In layman’s terms, it means you have to heat the plant at a certain temperature for a specific length of time to activate the plant’s chemicals. Most experts recommend heating at 248 degrees Fahrenheit for 60 minutes or at 284 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. Once this step is completed, add the plant material to the olive oil and heat to 212 degrees Fahrenheit for up to 2 hours (and at least 1 hour). This process should result in the extraction of the cannabinoids , and ultimately, you should receive oil with the CBD content you require.

How to Extract CBD From the Hemp Plant CBD Extraction Methods: The Dry Ice Extraction Method: The dry ice extraction method is another method of CBD extraction that can be performed at home although it takes a bit more time and effort than its olive oil equivalent. As well as the cannabis plant itself, you’ll need the following equipment: Around 3 pounds of dry ice. A large piece of Plexiglas or a mirror. A paint scraper or putty knife. Thick gloves that are heat resistant and eye protection. A clean 5-gallon plastic bucket. 3 bubble hash mesh bags; sizes are 73, 160 and 220 microns. 3 large, clean glass jars for storage.
