      Cannabis – Oil, Tincture & Paste: What are the differences and which one is for you?

      Cannabis – Oil, Tincture & Paste: What are the differences and which one is for you?

      For anyone who stumbles upon cannabis and its healing properties, it can get confusing to make a choice. This is because the current cannabis market is replete with options and although this is an exciting thing, it can be overwhelming for a first timer. As the variety grows, so should the clarity. This is why we’re about to give you a complete lowdown of each medium of cannabis products – whether it’s full-spectrum, broad spectrum or isolate, we’re going to explain the various formats you can consume these in and this will help you gauge what’s best for you.

      Let’s get started with the most common mix up – CBD Oil vs. CBD Tincture

      Many still perceive CBD oil and CBD tinctures interchangeably. However, this is a common mistake (made by some brands too) and they do come with some differences.

      CBD tincture

      A ‘tincture’ became associated with a dropper style bottle. But this is not what differentiates the two as CBD Oil and CBD tinctures can come in dropper style bottles. Simply put – the main difference lies in the solvent used to extract CBD.

      CBD tinctures are an alcohol-based extract. High-proof alcohol the solvent used to extract the natural compounds of the cannabis plant and is also used in the finished product. This gives CBD tinctures a very bitter taste but a longer shelf life. The bitter taste is masked with additives like sweeteners, flavoring, or vegetable glycerin. Some companies might also add vitamins, herbal extracts, or supplements like melatonin, depending on the goal of the product.

      CBD Oil

      CBD Oil is often a blend of CBD Extract (or paste) and carrier oil like MCT coconut oil. CBD oil is usually made by extracting other compounds from the plant material along with CBD such as terpenes and flavonoids – both of which come with their own benefits. The method used to extract this is called supercritical CO2, a process which helps retain the bioavailability, sustainability and quality of the plant. After this paste is extracted, it is then mixed with the carrier oil. Sometimes, essential oils are also used for their own benefits and flavor. CBD oils are more commonly found and even the products labeled CBD tinctures or CBD oil tinctures are more often CBD oils.

      CBD Paste

      CBD paste is the most concentrated extract and in terms of potency is the most potent among the three. CBD paste is the form of CBD that is usually added to carriers like MCT oil for further consumption. CBD paste is for those who need to consume higher quantities of CBD for medicinal purposes. CBD paste is also more cost effective and can be used to make your own CBD edibles to experiment and have fun with your medicinal intake of CBD. However, pastes usually come in a syringe and it can be hard to dispense and figure out the dosage.

      We hope these differentiating factors help you make the right choice for your purchase. Another ideal way to do so is to consult with our doctors and make a purchase with their guidance.

      Does Hemp Help Enhance Joint Health? Let’s find out!

      Does Hemp Help Enhance Joint Health? Let’s find out!

      There’s an old adage that goes “youth is a gift of nature but old age is a work of art”. How healthy you will be in your old age has a lot to do with the practices and habits we indulge in when we’re younger. Although the aging process is gradual, we don’t feel like we’re ever getting older when we’re in our 20s and 30s. However, these phases have a hige impact on our health as we age. We feel invincible when we’re younger, which could be the reason for some neglect on the health front. 

      When it comes to health in old age, joints are an important indicator of it. They are incredibly important when it comes to mobility. The cartilage that surrounds the bone is what tends to degenerate as we age and is the key component of mobility. It is responsible for reducing friction between the bones and also produces synovial fluid as we get older. Synovial fluid helps keep the joints lubricated and the functioning smoothly. If your joints do deteriorate, you may feel stiffness, pain and/or swelling.

      What is essentially happening here is inflammation.  And this is where CBD comes in. CBD interacts with the Endocannabinoid System – the part of the body that is responsible for maintaining general homeostasis and other general functions such as appetite, sleep, and physical pain. CBD interacts with this very system to support joint health, in every stage of life. CBD works with two receptors – CBD1 and CBD2 while supporting joint health. CBD2 receptors are specifically responsible for supporting the inflammatory response associated with joint issues. The scientific studies are still ongoing but there’s plenty of anecdotal evidence to support the claims that it helps with healing join health as well as reducing pain caused by unhealthy joints – temporary or more permanent conditions like arthritis.

       From children dealing with issues to adults dealing with neurodegenerative diseases, there are always people looking for alternatives. Physical therapy is aimed at recovery through physical modalities such as exercises, stretching, cold/hot massage etc. The goal here is to help the body heal itself.
