Cannabinoids are a component of cannabis holding the promise of alleviating a variety of ailments from pain to anxiety to sleep disorders. It is a non-psychoactive drug so there is no need to worry… CBD will not produce mind-altering effects as it contains 0% THC. Hemp-derived CBD is natural, nontoxic, and also legal in all 50 states.

The World Anti-Doping Agency removed CBD from their list of prohibited substances in January of 2018. Many, including athletes, have opted for this holistic alternative in replace of traditional over-the-counter drugs such as ibuprofen, Aspirin, and Tylenol. In addition, CBD has contributed to the decreasing rates of opioid addiction as it “appears to have low reinforcing properties with limited abuse potential and inhibit(s) drug-seeking behavior (Hurd, Yoon, Manini, Hernandez, Olmedo, Ostman, & Jutras-Aswad, 2015).”

What is CBD?

The science behind Phytocannabinoids alleviating relief is that they can be used to supplement or replace chemicals inside our bodies, called endocannabinoids. When the nervous system or immune system do not work as intended due to endocannabinoid deficiency, phytocannabinoids can be used as supplements to help with restoring the proper functionality of the central nervous system and immune system. This is primarily due to the phytocannabinoids activating CB1 and CB2 receptors, which in turn regulate cognitive and immune functions.

CBD effects brain chemistry and contains anti-inflammatory properties aiding in anxiety, stress, pain, nausea related to chemotherapy, and sleep disorders. Several in vitro and in vivo research projects have shown potential benefits of CBD having anti-seizure properties, blocking cell growth, preventing the growth of blood vessels that supply tumors, relieving muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis, acne, and smoking cessation (Cancer Treatment & Cannabis Oil, 2018).  CBD products can be found in the form of tinctures, topicals, softgels, oils, dog treats, and so on. Research continues to show results of  CBD helping various conditions effectively with the occasional case of non-serious side effects such as tiredness, diarrhea, changes in appetite, and weight (Consumer Reports, 2018).

What is Full-Spectrum CBD Oil?

While the extraction and purification process is carried out at low temperature to preserve the terpenes and volatile molecules, its enclosed and continuous nature ensures that none of the desirable natural molecules are lost. There is no Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) present as a result of a complete removal by a chromatographic purification system.

Some minor cannabinoids are partially lost while THC is removed, leading to their presence only at trace levels in the oil. However, the therapeutic effects of the THC-free hemp oil are not impacted as they are a result of CBD working synergistically with a diverse mix of mono- and sesquiterpenes 6-10, as well as other plant lipids known to facilitate the transport and absorption through various routes of administration, when the finished product is consumed.

The extent of contribution of THC towards the entourage effect from a full-spectrum oil has been misunderstood. Since THC is the only psychoactive molecule in hemp oil, its effects have been generally confused as the cause of the relief as opposed to correlated with it. In a CBD:THC mix, the medicinal effects observed in most cases are similar if THC were to be removed, except measuring it is difficult because of the psychoactivity that confounds the measurement and analysis of relief/benefit. Dedicated studies based on CBD without THC have shown that it is not necessary for THC to be in the hemp oil as the relief from pain, anxiety, insomnia, epilepsy, and nausea can be brought upon by CBD alone working synergistically with terpenes.1-5

Sana’s THC-free hemp oil and finished products are based on the scientific belief that clinical effects are solely due to CBD and terpenes in its full-spectrum oil. The impact on patients and consumers is superior compared to THC-containing oil because it avoids the adverse effects and undesirable outcomes typically associated with THC. The THC-free products can be used without fear of getting high, and across pets, kids, older adults, and various consumer segments wanting to avoid the ‘drug-like effects’.

The purity of the THC-free hemp oil also means that there is less than detectable levels of solvents; propane, isobutane, butane, ethanol, pentane, isopropanol, hexane, and acetone, as well as heavy metals; cadmium, arsenic, lead, and mercury.

The complete chemical environment of the hemp oil, without the undesirable presence of THC, combined with extreme purity with respect to solvents and heavy metals, ensures expected benefits from the products made with it and offers a broad array of consumer and medical applications that can be developed.
