Many oils thinned with polyethylene glycol and other petroleum-based solvents. A safer method uses C02, a natural compound both in our environment and our bodies. The FDA labeled CO2 as much safer than petroleum solvents. The conditions that allow CO2 to change from a fluid state to a supercritical state can occur without the need to exceed temperatures above 90 degrees Fahrenheit. This is important because we know heat structurally changes compounds. Higher temperatures compromise the natural volatile compounds found in cannabis altering its effectiveness. CO2 is also unique in that it’s solubility will change with pressure, allowing for fractioning of the many different types of bio-molecules available in cannabis strands. Co2 extraction can be used to pull various cannabinoids from the plant such a THCa, CBD,CBG, THCv as well the natural terpenes or the essential oil of plants.
The endocannabinoid system is a network of signal cells with the most receptors in the entire body. So using CBD oil allows the body to reach homeostasis in all major systems to improve or eliminate the most painful and deadly conditions.
