Many of the users claim to use this product for its ability to relieve pain and alleviate symptoms of anxiety and other anxiety-like mood disorders. The use of CBD also skyrocketed after the legal status of marijuana changed, which is not the same as CBD. However, the legalization of marijuana helped remove the stigma around its use and the use of the cannabinoids found in the plant itself.
What Is CBD(Cannabidiol)?Cannabidiol or CBD is a phytocannabinoid that is derived from cannabis plants and is one of the main components of the marijuana plant, and its cousin plant, hemp which gives them their pain-relieving effects. It is important to note that cannabidiol is extracted from the hemp plant, which belongs to the category of cannabis plants but is not what is referred to as marijuana. As it is extracted from the hemp plant, it does not have any psychoactive properties meaning that it is unable to make people ‘high’.
Cannabis sativa plant, in specific, marijuana plant has the ability to make people feel high through the effects of Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, another phytocannabinoid derived from cannabis plants. Marijuana has a higher concentration of THC than other cannabis plants such as hemp which is why it has the most psychoactive properties amongst all other plants. CBD is derived from the hemp plant which is rich in CBD but contains very little THC, making it the perfect option for people who would like to experience the benefits of the Cannabis sativa plant without the psychoactive effects.
The effects of CBD and THC are the same in theory that they both affect the different chemicals or neurotransmitters in the brain but each cannabinoid compound affects different chemicals and has a different effect on them, hence producing widely different results.
Cannabidiol was initially discovered in 1940 as a non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid in cannabis plants but it wasn’t until 2018 that the USA removed it, along with its parent plant, hemp, from the Controlled Substances List. However, it is still illegal for people to use cannabidiol powders, CBD oils, or other CBD products in their pure form or any formulation as a potential treatment or ingredient in a dietary supplement.
CBD medications are approved by the Food and Drug Administration or FDA in the United States of America for the treatment of epilepsy and seizure disorders. It is also recommended for other medical issues however, it is still to get FDA’s and other countries’ health authorities’ approval before it becomes a standard of care.
How Does CBD Works On Body?In fact, professionals have been discussing the topic of "how does CBD work on the human body" for many years. It seems that a relatively reasonable argument has been found. Scientists believe that CBD acts indirectly on the endocannabinoid system to exert its benefits. Before we understand how CBD acts on our body, we must first understand what is the endocannabinoid system and how does it exist in our body?
What Is the Endocannabinoid System(ECS)?"Cannabinoid" comes from "cannabis," and "endo" is short for "endogenous," which means that it is produced naturally inside of your body. So "endocannabinoid" simply means cannabis-like substances that naturally occur inside us.
The ECS itself is made up of three parts:
② Receptors(CB1, CB2) in the nervous system and around your body that endocannabinoids and cannabinoids bond with.(CB1 receptors are present throughout the body, particularly in the brain. They co-ordinate movement, pain, emotion, mood, thinking, appetite, memories, and other functions. CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system. They affect inflammation and pain)
③ Enzymes that help break down endocannabinoids and cannabinoids
Not only is the ECS a natural part of our bodies, but it's also a crucial one.The endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays a very interesting and varied role within the body. At its most basic, the endocannabinoid system is a huge network of cannabinoid receptors which are spread through the body. The human endocannabinoid system releases cannabinoids that interact with receptors found in virtually all of the tissues in our bodies. You can also take in phyto-cannabinoids (CBD) in addition to those compounds that your body produces to help boost this system. The role of the endocannabinoid system is to bring balance to our tissues, including the heart, digestive, endocrine, immune, nervous, and reproductive systems. In short, it’s working to keep you in neutral. Neutral means different things in different areas of your body, which is possibly one of the very best things about the compound – it can have a different impact on different receptors in your body.
CBD, in contrast, is not psychoactive, it won’t control you and make you addicted after you used CBD or CBD products. CBD does not change a person’s state of mind when they use it. However, it may produce significant changes in the body, and it is showing some significant medical benefits.
Scientists once believed that CBD attached to the CB2 receptors, but new studies have indicated that CBD does not attach directly to either receptor. Instead, it’ s believed that CBD influences the endocannabinoid system indirectly. CBD’ s Indirect Effect On the Endocannabinoid System When someone takes CBD, the compound goes into your system and to the endocannabinoid system (ECS).Since cannabidiol has been found to have no particular binding affinity, scientists believe CBD’ s therapeutic benefits created via indirect action.
CBD inhibits fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH), which breaks down anandamide and weakens it. CBD weakens FAAH, which leads to an increased concentration of anandamide. Anandamide is considered the “bliss molecule” and plays an important role in the generation of pleasure and motivation. The increased concentration of anandamide can have a positive effect on the endocannabinoid system.
CBD also affects the fatty acid binding protein (FABP). FABP proteins bind to anandamide and transport the enzyme outside the synapse to broken down and metabolized by the FAAH. CBD affects the transportation process of FABP so that less anandamide is metabolized, again resulting in a higher concentration of anandamide.
Finally, CBD binds itself to the G-protein receptors known as TRPV-1. TRVP-1 receptors are involved in regulating pain, body temperature, and inflammation. It is through this bind that scientists believe CBD helps with inflammation and pain relief.
In a word, The endocannabinoid system helps keep the body in homeostasis. When ingested, Cannabidiol can help optimise our body’ s ability to function more smoothly. CBD interacts with the cannabinoid, dopamine, opioid and serotonin receptors in our bodies, then optimise many of our body’ s functions.
Health Benefits of CBDCBD’s fame and popularity can be attributed to the different benefits that it has on the human body, most of which are not only thoroughly researched but as a result of those studies, backed by scientific evidence. Before legalization and widespread use of the compound, several types of research were conducted to not only study the potential uses and benefits of CBD but also to analyze and assess the safety and possible toxicity of the compound.
The many benefits of CBD are mentioned below, along with different studies that proved those benefits.
♦ Pain Management and ReliefMost people like to use CBD for this benefit specifically. There are records of marijuana being used as a painkiller, going as far back as 2900 BC. Cannabis plants can act as painkillers and relieve different types of pain as a result of their action on the cannabinoid receptor in the body.
The human body has an endocannabinoid system or ECS in place to help with several key functions such as sleep, appetite, and immune response. The ECS is responsible for the release of endogenous cannabinoids that act on the cannabinoid receptor and alleviate pain, enhance immune response, stimulate hunger and sleep cycle. CBD and THC are both cannabinoids that when taken either orally or topically, interact and bind with the cannabinoid receptors. Since these exogenous cannabinoids are similar to endogenous cannabinoids, they can produce the same results as endogenous ones, although their results may be a bit more exaggerated.
In 2018, researchers performed a meta-analysis of all literature published till 2017 on the benefits of cannabidiol use in patients with neuropathic pain as a result of malignant diseases. Fifteen out of the eighteen studies that were involved in this meta-analysis found that most patients were relieved of their pain after taking a combination of 27mg THC and 25 mg CBD.
Moreover, all studies found that the most severe side effects of this combination were nausea, dry mouth, and vomiting. These side effects were not present in every patient and those affected did not have a severe enough reaction. This led researchers to conclude that THC and CBD use, can moderately treat neuropathic pain and is well-tolerated with very little risk of adverse effects.
There are many different types of researches that have been performed to support the use of CBD as a painkiller. One such research focused on the use of CBD for its immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory properties. The Italian study was performed on animal models and the researchers in this study tried to improve chronic inflammatory pain in rats using oral CBD. They found that when 20 mg/kg of CBD was given to rats with chronic inflammatory pain, the rats showed a significant decrease in the pain. Similarly, they also studied the effects of CBD on neuropathic pain in rats with sciatic nerve injury and although it could relieve the pain, it was found that CBD was most beneficial in chronic states of pain.
Many people take CBD oils or sprays or pills for chronic pain, and that is one of the main reasons for the popularity of CBD and marijuana. It was also this benefit, amongst many others, that led to the widespread use of CBD and marijuana leading to the legalization of both compounds and removal of CBD from the Controlled Substances List.
♦ Treatment of Epilepsy and other Seizure DisordersSeizures are mostly associated with epilepsy but several other disorders can produce seizures such as Dravet Syndrome, Tuberous Sclerosis Syndrome, and so on. The pure form of CBD products has been hypothesized to have anti-epileptic or anti-seizure effects but it was only recently that there was concrete scientific evidence backing this hypothesis.
Initially, there were several controversies regarding the use of CBD especially in the treatment of epilepsy and other seizure disorders. This was mostly because although CBD is an anticonvulsant, in certain acute conditions, it can act as a pro-convulsant. However, after different double-blind, randomized clinical trials were performed, it was found that that is not the case. CBD and THC were both found to be mostly anticonvulsants in nature.
As a result of several studies, it was found that pure CBD powders and CBD hemp oils, amongst other CBD products, canareanage and treat seizures caused by epilepsy, Dravet Syndrome, Tuberous Sclerosis Syndrome, and Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome. Following this discovery, GW Pharmaceuticals developed a medication containing pure CBD concentrate named Epidiolex that has even received FDA approval to be used as an anti-seizure medication.
However, it is worth noting that it is still unknown if CBD products bought from different CBD isolate manufacturers are as effective as Epidiolex in managing the symptoms of these seizure disorders. This is especially because not all CBD powder manufacturers and CBD powder suppliers are providing actual, pure CBD powders and products but rather contaminated products that are not as concentrated, and hence, not as effective. It is absolutely important to only purchase from verified vendors that sell high-quality, pure CBD products.
Researchers are currently trying to evaluate the use of CBD and THC together or the use of CBD alone in managing and treating treatment-resistant seizures, as they pose a huge threat to patients’ life and are often responsible for a significantly decreased quality of life.
♦ Reduce Anxiety and DepressionThe use of cannabidiol has been shown to have anxiolytic and anti-depressant effects in several animal models. In a Brazilian study performed on mice, it was found that CBD has the same effects as imipramine, a known anti-depressant on the hippocampus of depressed mice. The study was performed to assess the effects of cannabidiol on depression and to evaluate exactly how CBD could produce those results.
It was found by the researchers that CBD acted on serotonin receptors, specifically 5HT-1A receptors to produce the anti-depressant effects overall. It was also discovered that, for CBD to be effective, activation of BDNF or Brain-derived neurotrophic factor was necessary.
However, this study focused on the effects of CBD on animal models and the same results are not necessary to be produced in humans as well. This is why a study was performed on 57 healthy, adult males to evaluate if CBD has an anxiolytic and anti-depressant on humans as well. In this Brazilian double-blind, randomized clinical trial, CBD use was assessed against a placebo to evaluate the effects and it was found that the effects of CBD in animals are mimicked in humans as well. This means that CBD use has the potential to reduce anxiety and depression in humans.
Cannabidiol oils and powders are also believed to play a huge role in the treatment and management of pediatric anxiety and PTSD disorders, as recommended by a case report published by doctors at the University of Colorado.
♦ Manage Cancer-Related SymptomsCancer and cancer treatment often produce non-specific symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and pain. These symptoms are hard to manage especially as they recur with every round of cancer treatment. However, recent studies show that cancer-related symptoms such as those mentioned above can be managed by CBD or a mixture of CBD and THC.
A study performed in the United Kingdom on 177 patients was performed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of CBD and THC combination as nonopioid analgesics in patients suffering from cancer-related pain. The primary results of the study showed promising effects as most patients taking the CBD and THC mixture reported a significant decrease in pain, almost two times more than the placebo group. This shows the efficacy of both cannabinoids in treating and managing pain in cancer patients.
Moreover, researchers in the same study were determined to find the tolerability of this potential new treatment in cancer patients as most cancer treatments have several side effects associated with them. It was found that CBD and THC were well-tolerated by the patients and the combination barely produced any adverse effects worth mentioning.
Chemotherapy is the most common treatment for almost all types of cancers but it is not well tolerated by the human body and can take a toll on the quality of health. One of the main side effects that is present in almost all patients undergoing chemotherapy is chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting or CINV. Although several antiemetic medications exist, some of them specifically for CINV, they are not always effective. However, research performed in Barcelona found that CBD consumption could help relieve patients suffering from CINV with higher efficacy than antiemetic medications designed specifically for CINV.
♦ Neuroprotective PropertiesCBD has several benefits against neuropsychiatric disorders where it targets different neurotransmitter receptors and cannabinoid receptors to produce these positive effects. A CBD drug, Epidiolex is also approved by FDA and health authorities worldwide for the treatment of seizures as a result of Epilepsy and other seizure disorders.
Given these benefits, several types of researches have been performed to study the effect of CBD on other neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s and Multiple Sclerosis.
A study performed in Germany studied the effects of Sativex, an oro-mucosal CBD spray on the muscle spasticity seen in patients with multiple sclerosis. These patients suffered from treatment-resistant muscle spasms and CBD spray, in these patients, was used as an adjunct therapy to existing treatments.
It was found that the multiple sclerosis patients tolerated Sativex and had no adverse reactions as a result of consumption of Sativex. Moreover, Sativex users reported a significant decrease in muscle spasms and pain, which resulted in the researchers recommending the use of CBD oils, powders, and spray for patients suffering from muscle twitches and spasms as a result of MS.
Another study that was performed to study the effects of CBD on Alzheimers patients has also shown promising results, hence proving that CBD does have neuroprotective properties. Currently, Alzheimer’s disease is a non-curable neurodegenerative disorder that once present, cannot be slowed in progression or reversed at all. However, in vitro effects of CBD on brain cells shows a new picture and gives hope to patients suffering from Alzheimer’s.
Developing this theory that is formed on the in vitro effects of CBD, studies have been performed on animal models to see if Alzheimer’s can be reversed with aggressive treatment with CBD. Mice with cognitive defects and gliosis, a form of scar formation in the brain, as a result of Alzheimer’s were given CBD as a part of this study. It was found that CBD reduced scar formation in the brain and resulted in neurogenesis or the development of new brain cells to combat the loss of cells due to reactive gliosis. Moreover, CBD was found to reverse the cognitive deficits seen in the rat models, hence giving hope that Alzheimer’s may be reversible and treatable, in the future.
It is important to note that most of these results were produced in animal models and these results have to be replicated in clinical trials with human subjects before CBD use can become the standard of care.
♦ Acne Management and TreatmentCBD has gained traction due to its analgesic, anxiolytic, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is the anti-inflammatory properties of this cannabinoid that has led to its use as an anti-acne treatment. Acne is believed to be the result of inflammation, bacteria, and excess sebum production. In a study performed to evaluate this property of CBD oils, it was found that CBD prevents inflammation and hence the development of cystic, inflammatory acne by inhibiting the secretion of pro-acne inflammatory cytokines in the skin. Moreover, this study found that CBD can alter sebum levels in the skin by targeting its production and reducing it, directly.
CBD is currently being used in several skincare products and topical agents that are advertised as anti-acne products. However, it is important to find products that contain some sort of technology to help the product be absorbed in the human skin. This is to ensure that it penetrates the skin and reduces inflammation from the inside.
♦ Antipsychotic PropertiesCBD is widely used for its ability to manage neuropsychiatric disorders, which is why several different kinds of research are being performed on other potential antipsychotic effects of CBD. And most of those studies have shown a positive response.
Cannabis use is believed to now result in the development of schizophrenia, a chronic neurological disorder with psychosis-like symptoms. New studies have hypothesized that the use of CBD may be beneficial in managing and counteracting the psychosis seen with schizophrenia, which develops as a result of cannabis use, and the one that develops as a result of genetic influences, without cannabis involvement. It can also reverse the psychosis that is sometimes seen with acute administration of THC.
These results prove that CBD has antipsychotic properties which need to be further evaluated as these benefits could be of great value in medicine.
♦ Treatment and Management of Substance Abuse DisorderAddictive disorders are developed as a result of the drugs’ action on neuronal circuits, making people crave and depend on these drugs. In a literature review performed by researchers to evaluate the use of CBD as a potential treatment of addictive disorders, it was found that CBD may be able to interact with these neuronal circuits and inhibit them, resulting in decreased craving and dependence on these products.
The literature review included 14 studies, 9 of which were performed on animal models, specifically mice. CBD was found to be especially beneficial against opioids, cocaine, psychostimulant, cigarette, and cannabis addiction. However, those were preliminary results and further results have yet to be published before the results can become widely accepted.
♦ Prevention of diabetesDiabetes is a huge problem that affects a huge portion of the world population. A recent study conducted on animal models found that the use of CBD in non-obese mice could significantly decrease the incidence of diabetes. In this study, between the interventional group and the placebo group, there was a marked decrease in the incidence of diabetes from 86 percent to 30 percent.
Moreover, this study found that CBD use could result in decreased incidence of diabetes as a result of anti-inflammatory properties and immunomodulatory effects of the cannabinoid. CBD use in these animal modes also resulted in delayed initiation of destructive insulitis, one of the key mechanisms responsible for insulin reduction in diabetes.
→ CBD Topical CreamsThese topical agents contain CBD and are used for the management of pain, inflammation, swelling, skin irritation, and even acne. CBD topical creams should be used as any other skincare product and applied on the part of the skin that required treatment.
When purchasing CBD topicals and creams, it is important to buy the product that has some sort of nanotechnology or micellization that allows the ingredients of the topical agent, like CBD, to be absorbed by the skin and treat from the inside. Without these absorption mechanisms in place, CBD-containing topical agents would just stay on the surface and produce no beneficial effects whatsoever.
→ CBD VapesCBD when inhaled via vaping allows the CBD to be absorbed rapidly in the body, and produce benefits faster than any other form. Since it is inhaled into the lungs and then passes to the bloodstream, CBD in a vape bypasses the first-pass metabolism which usually takes longer and prevents rapid action of CBD. That is not the case with CBD vapes and this method of CBD use is especially famous amongst younger populations. Although CBD has a rapid course of action when used in a vape form, it also has rapid metabolism and is only in the bloodstream for about 10 minutes, meaning that the entire efficacy of CBD vapes lasts for 10 minutes.
However, it is worth noting that vapes are not a healthy way of using CBD or any other such product. Vaping is considered to be healthier than smoking but it is still unhealthy and needs to be avoided, especially as other forms of CBD are readily available and accessible.
→ CBD Capsules and TabletsThis form of CBD is the most regulated form of CBD intake and allows users to consume cannabidiol in different specific dosages, based on their preferences and needs. The usual dosage for CBD capsules and tablets is between 5 mg and 25 mg.
→ CBD ConcentrateCBD concentrates, as the name suggests, contain a concentrated form of CBD. On average, these products come with an applicator and are a hundred times more concentrated than other CBD products and forms. Available in powder form, this product should be kept in the mouth for a while before being swallowed to allow CBD to be absorbed sublingually as well through the first-pass metabolism after it is swallowed.
→ CBD Oils and TincturesCBD Oils and tinctures also contain a high concentration of CBD usually ranging from 100 mg to 1500 mg. As these are also consumed orally, it is important to check the dosage and avoid overdosing as that can increase the risk of adverse effects and reduce the beneficial effects of CBD.
→ CBD SprayThis form of CBD is a relatively new form of application and, when compared to other forms, has the lowest concentration of CBD. The usual content of CBD in these sprays ranges from 1 mg to 3 mg per spray.
Side Effects of CBDCBD is a widely popular product that is being rampantly used by young adults and middle-aged individuals. While it is true that cannabidiol powder has several scientifically proven benefits associated with it, it is important to note that with these benefits, there are a few side effects associated with CBD use. These side effects are seen when CBD is taken orally, or through the mouth. Not enough research has been performed to know the side effects that may develop with different application forms.
The common side effects of CBD include:
- Low blood pressure or hypotension
- Dry mouth or Xerostomia
Most of these side effects are not that severe and will resolve spontaneously. CBD products can be used for up to 13 weeks continuously, with the safe dosage of 200mg per day, Epidiolex is associated with acute liver injury if taken in higher dosage as the medication is approved to be used at an even higher dosage than 200mg per day, although it is a rare complication.
Possible Interactions and Special Precautions of CBDCBD is generally considered to be well-tolerated by most of the adult and young-adult age groups and is even able to produce significant benefits in these populations. However, it is important to note that there are special precautions that need to be taken for some people who may be interested in taking CBD. These precautions are for people that are either suffering from liver disease or Parkinson’s disease. These conditions alter the efficacy of CBD products and special care should be taken by these patients if they choose to take CBD.
Patients with liver disease can still take CBD however, they will be required to take lower doses of CBD, than an average human being as their liver is not able to metabolize products at its usual capacity. Research shows that low levels of CBD do not affect or put pressure on a diseased liver, meaning that these patients can safely take CBD products.
Patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease have the hallmark symptoms of resting tremors and improper muscle movements. These symptoms are believed to be exaggerated by the use of CBD products, which is why Parkinson’s patients are required to refrain from using any of these products.
CBD products are also not recommended to children, although it is unclear what the effects may be on this age group. Epidiolex, the medication used for the management and treatment of seizures, is regularly prescribed to children suffering from these seizure disorders. According to FDA, the medication is safe to use in children but it is not known if other CBD products are safe or effective in children. Until further research is performed, it is best to avoid giving children CBD products apart from Epidiolex.
Pregnant women and women who are breastfeeding are also asked to take precautions and refrain from using CBD products. However, this is not specifically due to the effects of CBD, which are still unknown, but rather due to the possibility that these products may be contaminated by toxins or harmful substances that may be harmful to the woman or the growing child. As it may not be possible for everyone to ensure the safety of the products they use, it is best to avoid CBD products as a whole during this period.
Apart from the special precautions mentioned above, nothing is known about possible drug interactions with CBD.
What Forms are CBD Products Manufactured in AASraw?AASraw is a reliable source of steroid powders, sex hormones, and smart drugs. AASraw is also a CBD isolate manufacturer and supplier, producing high-quality, safe to use, and efficient CBD products. CBD is a versatile product that is available in different forms but not all manufacturers manufacture and produce all of the different forms of CBD. A CBD factory may manufacture different forms of products, and not all the forms to be able to best focus on the quality and safety of the product.
AASraw is a CBD powder manufacturer and it also manufactures CBD oils, both of which are highly popular and very much in-demand. The products manufactured by AASraw include:
→ CBD PowderCBD Powder or concentrate is a form of cannabidiol that is widely manufactured and sold with most people trying to buy CBD powder as it is easy to use and efficient in producing results. AASraw has a specific type of CBD powder available for sale, which is manufactured in a factory where safety guidelines and protocols are followed with utter precision. This ensures the safety and efficacy of the products, which AASraw, the CBD powder manufacturer and CBD powder supplier, guarantees and prides itself on.
The CBD powder manufacturer also ensures that the products are not contaminated with any toxins or harmful substances during the manufacturing or packaging process in the CBD factory. Moreover, AASraw has trackable quality control in place that in the rare incidence of quality issues, helps track and recall all products manufactured in that batch.
The CBD powder manufactured by AASraw is referred to as Water-soluble CBD Powder and is white to off-white powder that contains 10 percent CBD. This product is free of THC and the other 90 percent of the powder is comprised of medicinal components and binders that help exaggerate the beneficial effects of CBD and allow the product to stay together and last a longer period.
The water-soluble CBD powder is supposed to be mixed with water to produce an aqueous solution when it needs to be taken. The aqueous solution needs to be thoroughly mixed and shaken, which may make the solution foamy. That is the normal texture of the product and that is how it should be taken.
It is important to keep in mind that CBD powder should be stored appropriately, away from sunlight. Moreover, at no point should the powder come in contact with an acid or a base as that may react with the powder.
→ CBD OilsCBD Oils, as mentioned above, are potent forms of CBD as they contain a high concentration of CBD compared to other forms. AASraw’s CBD oils are all manufactured in a Good Manufacturing Practices or GMP certified facility, guaranteeing the potency and efficacy of the CBD oils. All CBD oils and other products manufactured by AASraw are manufactured to ensure that there are no contaminants in their products and that they are as concentrated as possible.
There are two different types of CBD oils manufactured by AASraw, as mentioned below:
· Hemp Essential OilCBD Hemp Oils are gaining popularity thanks to the many benefits of these products, as mentioned above. Oils especially are more famous than other forms of CBD products because they contain a relatively higher concentration of CBD.
Hemp Essential Oil by AASraw is a viscous, black, and yellow oil that is highly concentrated and stable. It should be stored at room temperature and away from sunlight to ensure the maximal benefits and long life of the product. This product by AASraw’s CBD factory is third-party tested and available in different concentrations, with either CBD or dull spectrum cannabinoids.
This product is halal, Kosher, and completely free of THC but full of non-psychoactive cannabinoids of the hemp plant.
· Golden Hemp OilGolden Hemp Oil by AASraw is a third-party tested, high-quality cannabinoid oil rich in full-spectrum cannabinoids. This brown yellow to brown-black semi-viscous oil is sold in different packaging, and it is possible to purchase this directly from AASraw’s CBD factory especially if a higher concentration of CBD is required in the oil.
The product does come with special recommendations on storage as improper storage can render the product inefficient. It is also important to know that the cannabinoids in this product can crystallize over time. This does not mean that the product is no longer usable but instead just heating the oil by putting it in a warm water bath will dissolve the crystals, allowing the oil to be used just like before.
How To Choose the Right Manufacturer of CBD Product?Several CBD powder manufacturers guarantee that their products contain pure, high-quality CBD but that is often far from the truth. It is important to buy CBD powder from verified vendors who follow safety guidelines and have appropriate quality checkpoints to ensure the safety, efficacy, and potency of the product.
Moreover, it is important to buy CBD powder from manufacturers who provide products that are not only tested by the CBD powder manufacturer and supplier itself but also by third parties which further ensures the quality of the final product right before it is sent out to markets for use by different consumers. If a product fails this third-party lab test, it has to be resent to the manufacturer who then has to evaluate why the product failed the quality check and has to solve those issues before manufacturing new products and supplying them.
Especially when buying CBD wholesale or placing CBD powder bulk orders, it is important to thoroughly research the product and the manufacturer to avoid any issues with the final product that is available in surplus. If maximal benefits of CBD are required, another inquiry into the manufacturer needs to be made to ensure that the product one purchases are rich in concentrated amounts of CBD, and CBD alone. The product should not contain THC or other cannabinoids that reduce the effects of CBD or prevent it from functioning at its full capacity.
