Globules from CBD are still a very new invention. The hemp from which the cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted, however, is one of the oldest useful plants at all, and not as a drug. Hemp was already cultivated as a useful plant about 10,000 years ago. The worldwide use of the hemp plant has taken place for about 3,000 years. In China, however, textiles were already being made from hemp about 5,000 years ago, and the plant was also used to make paper as early as 2,000 years ago.
The inventor of printing also used hemp in Europe, for example, against hypertension, i.e. too high blood pressure. At that time, of course, there were no CBD globules, so other forms of intake were used.
Apart from the above-mentioned uses of hemp, paint, sailcloth, rope and jeans were also made from hemp at different times. The hemp was already at that time very competitive in trade and also the navy was dependent on the supply with hemp.
Origin of CBD globules
The active ingredient for CBD globules is obtained from a plant that originally comes from Central Asia. For example, it was used in China both as food and as a medicine against malaria and rheumatism. Even though it actually comes from there, the hemp plant today grows mostly in subtropical climates.
However, the CBD globules available in Germany are not produced in China, but in reliable European factories. In total, about 50 different hemp varieties are approved, in which the content of the psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) must not exceed 0.2 %. Therefore, the seeds must be certified. In addition, the Federal Agency for Agriculture and Food must be informed about the cultivation. For this reason, at least part of the oil needed for the production of CBD globules comes from German farms.
Production of CBD globules
The sowing of the fiber hemp often takes place in two passes between April and May. The harvest can then take place between July and September. However, if the seeds are to be used, then the harvest does not begin until mid-September to mid-October. However, the seeds are not the most important part of the plant, they are just a byproduct of cultivation, so to speak. However, gentle harvesting is important so that CBD oil can be extracted from the seeds. After the seeds are separated from the plants, they are processed in an oil mill. In this process, the oil is extracted using the cold pressing method, as this is gentler and thus contains more of the plant's valuable active ingredients.
Unfortunately, since hemp oil itself has a low content of CBD, it is enriched with a natural extract of it. This extract is also obtained from the useful hemp and is produced by distillation. The CBD oil is initially also not included in the CBD globules.
Globules are tiny sugar beads that are mixed with a very small amount of an active ingredient. Although the active ingredient can still be detected, the total amounts are hardly worth mentioning. It is the same with CBD globules. Here we speak of "inform". With CBD globules, one usually speaks of a potency D6. This means that the lactose mass of the globules are rubbed with the CBD oil in a ratio of 1:10. The resulting mass is then scraped out of the jar and then stirred 10 times. Once this process is done, it is the first potency. Since the CBD globules is with the potency D6, this process is therefore carried out six more times.
After that, small amounts of CBD can still be detected in the globules. This detectability invalidates the criticism of opponents of homeopathy that no active ingredient can be detected. While Germany mostly works with D-potencies, other countries, on the other hand, tend to use C-potencies. With C-potencies, a ratio of 1 to 100 is used when rubbing.
From time to time the CBD globules are also available as C30 potency. The proportion of the active ingredient contained therein corresponds to the D6 and C30 potency.
The effect of CBD globules
CBD oil, which is only slightly present in CBD globules in medicinal form, contains a lot of important ingredients. For example, it contains omega-3 and omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which play an important role in the renewal and regeneration of cells. They are needed in the construction of cell membranes and the containment of inflammatory processes. In addition, the fatty acids have a beneficial effect on blood pressure, which is why Gutenberg used hemp for the treatment of his high blood pressure. The gamma-linolenic acids contained in the oil also have an inhibitory effect on inflammation.
