CBD Oil And Its Uses
Before diving into winterized CBD oil and why it is important to ensure that your CBD oil is winterized. It is crucial to have a general understanding of what CBD oil is, as well as what it is used for.
Cannabidiol, known commonly as CBD, is an extract taken from the marijuana plant that has numerous health benefits. What many people may not understand about CBD oil is that it does not cause a high; CBD products contain a very miniscule amount of THC, if any at all. THC is the chemical compound that causes a mind-altering high for an individual. All regulated CBD products are required to contain no more than 0.03% THC content, making it virtually impossible to contract a high from using a CBD product.
Because CBD oil does not contain a psychoactive, it serves as a wonderful option for individuals who wish to naturally and effectively manage pain, anxiety, or a number of other physical or mental ailments without the mind-altering high.
Below is a list of positive effects that have been associated with CBD oil:
- Nausea relief
- Pain relief
- Immune system support
- Stress relief
- Treatment of cancer treatment side-effects
How Is CBD Oil Used?
CBD oil can be used in a number of different ways; many individuals choose to use it in a vaporizer device. Hot Juice is proud to offer a number of delicious and luxurious CBD vape juice flavors that deliver a enjoyable and helpful CBD vaping experience.
CBD oil is also commonly added into coffee and food in the form of liquid drops. This is a great option for individuals who either can not vape CBD products, or simply wish not to.
Why Winterize CBD Oil?
The outer layer of the cannabis plant is covered in a substance known as the cuticle wax; quite simply, it is a waxy layer of lipids. This layer is usually burned away when cannabis is smoked due to the high temperature. When using a vaporizer, the temperature does not reach high enough levels to burn off this waxy layer of lipids. Thus, there has been a rise of concern among healthcare professionals.
The process of winterizing CBD oil is done in order to ensure that the cuticle wax is removed, and that the final product is pure CBD isolate, free from phytonutrients such as terpenes. Using CBD isolate ensures that there is no chance of wax buildup in the lungs, or any other considerable health risks that may be associated with vaping unpurified CBD products. While there is no concrete evidence or studies done to determine what health risks may be associated with vaping CBD products that have not been purified, it may be best to practice caution by ensuring that you are using winterized CBD oil products.
The CBD Winterization Process
Winterization, also commonly referred to as an alcohol wash, is essentially an extraction process that purifies the CBD by removing potentially harmful waxes, transforming it into a pure CBD isolate. The oil is first soaked in alcohol and then heated to approximately 120 degrees. It is then allowed to completely freeze for a minimum of 24 hours. This process allows the cuticle waxes to be separated and removed, and allows for the removal of phytonutrients. The final product is thick and rich in color, with a maple syrup-like consistency.
Vaping Winterized CBD VS Vaping Non-Winterized CBD
As previously stated, there is not yet a great amount of concrete evidence to indicate exactly what happens to the body when vaping winterized CBD versus vaping non-winterized CBD, as the use of vaporizers has not yet been around long enough to conduct thorough studies.
While there are no formal studies to refer to in order to draw a conclusion, it can be assumed that the removal of the waxes in the CBD substance helps prevent the eventual buildup of residue inside the lungs. It is for this reason that it is recommended to only use winterized CBD products; until more final conclusions can be made about the effects of non-winterized CBD products, it is wise to stick to the option that presents the most pure form of CBD oil.
What Is The Supercritical CO2 Method?
The supercritical CO2 method is known to be one the most efficient methods of ensuring the purity and effectiveness of the winterization process. It is the only method of winterization that is used here at Hot Juice for all CBD products.
This powerful method uses pressurized carbon dioxide to remove the unwanted phytonutrients and toxins.
As compared with other methods, the supercritical CO2 method is known to be one of-if not the most-successful in producing the most pure and clean products that deliver CBD safely and without potentially harmful phytonutrients and toxins.
Advantages Of Using The Supercritical CO2 Method
Below is a comprehensive list of the advantages of using the supercritical CO2 method in order to produce winterized CBD products:
- No amount of waste produced
- Produces the cleanest and safest product
- Produces an incredibly pure product
- Total chemical purity
- No air needed to complete the process; prevents oxidation from occurring
- Preserves natural structure and composure of cannabinoids
- Guarantees removal of harmful toxins, phytonutrients, and terpenes
Disadvantages Of Using The Supercritical CO2 Method
While this method of winterization is known to be the best and has countless benefits and advantages, it is important to consider all aspects concerned. Below is a comprehensive list of the disadvantages of using the supercritical CO2 method in order to produce winterized CBD products:
- The process can be quite costly; this may result in higher product prices.
- Supercritical CO2 extraction can be quite complicated, and should only be attempted by professionals who are confident in their abilities.
- The process can be difficult to comprehend at first, and therefore can be difficult to learn.
