What Are CBD Oils?

by | Jan 19, 2022 | Shopping

In the UK, there are different options in CBD oils on the market. Most people new to the products start with the question, “What are CBD oils, and are they the best option for me?” The answer to this question is often an affirmative as CBD oil is very well tolerated and can be added to food or beverages or taken sublingually as needed.

The two options for CBD oil include full spectrum and broad spectrum. Full spectrum CBD oil contains up to 0.2% THC, which will not cause the high associated with cannabis use. Broad spectrum CBD oil is free from any THC, as is CBD isolate.

What Are CBD Oils Made Of?
CBD oil is made by an extraction process. This process absorbs the natural chemicals of the hemp plant, including terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids, providing a concentrated liquid. Of these naturally occurring compounds, the terpenes provide the flavor to the oil.

Next, a carrier oil is added to the concentrate to dilute the extra to the desired strength. The carrier oil can be one of any number of food quality oils. The choice of the carrier oil impacts the flavour of the CBD oil finished product. For example, the use of MCT oil adds virtually no flavour, so the CBD oil is earthy and slightly hemp-like in taste. Adding hemp seed oil or olive oil creates a more buttery or nutty flavor.

Most people find that CBD oils are platable and even pleasant tasting. A few drops can also be added to food or beverages if the taste of the oil is not your favourite. Shop Organic CBD Oils & Products at Best Prices in the UK.
