FUNCTION AS ANTIOXIDANTS AND NEUROPROTECTANTS
“Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.
The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.
Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention.”
– U.S. patent #6,630,507 held by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
Other research has linked cannabinoids to be helpful with addiction, anxiety, depression, brain trauma, PTSD, and cancers.
Technically hemp oil is cold-pressed from the seed; whereas, CBD oil is extracted from the flowers of the plant. However, some companies label CBD oil (extract) as Hemp Oil in order to navigate regulation. Before buying, it is best to consult the label and search for the terms “CBD” or “extract.”
Anything labeled as CBD extract or hemp extract should contain CBD because the “extract” is extracted from the flowers of hemp, which is where the cannabinoids are produced.
