Cannabidiol is growing quickly and is projected to surpass the international dietary and vitamin supplements market in five years. Now, does that mean you should work cannabidiol into your day-to-day nutrition routine? Else, should you use it mainly to support your overall health or address your specific health concerns?
Its answer can be yes as cannabidiol oil has potential value in the form of a health and wellness supplement and a nutritional value. With that in mind, let us discuss some CBD nutritional facts from a health and wellness point of view.
Cannabidiol Oil Nutrients
Proteins, minerals, fatty acids, and vitamins are lower in cannabidiol oil than in hemp oil. However, depending on the CBD extraction method, cannabidiol oil, and hemp oil may have the same forms of nutrients. There is a lack of data on the nutritional elements of CBD oil.
Cannabidiol is fat-soluble, so polyunsaturated fats and monounsaturated fats are among the most significant nutrients in the oil-based product. Some of those fats are omega-3 and omega-6 fats, which are regarded as important for a healthy human nervous system and a healthy response to inflammation. The specific quantities of omega acids may vary somewhat; hemp oil generally has them in healthy levels and ratios.
Broad-spectrum cannabidiol oil and whole-hemp CBD oil have different THC levels, with the latter containing up to about 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol. That said, both forms of cannabidiol oil may have some of those omega fats, besides flavonoids and terpenes.
According to the specific extraction process involved, cannabidiol oil can contain proteins, minerals, and vitamins but may be in lower quantities than hemp oil. Vitamin C, D, E, A, and B-complex variants maybe some of those vitamins in cannabidiol oil. While the product may not have the vitamins at extremely high levels, it may have enough of them to aid in your vitamin requirements. According to the process of purification used, the product may also have some minerals, including calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, sodium, and manganese.
Cannabidiol To Aid In Maintaining Overall Health
Purified cannabidiol oil may contain low nutrient levels but is usually high in CBD and other phytocannabinoids. Cannabidiol oil can contain flavonoids and terpenes too. We are only starting to learn more about terpene benefits. Flavonoids in cannabidiol oil work as antioxidants as well as may aid in preventing damage to tissues and cells.
Adding cannabidiol oil to your day-to-day routine may aid in controlling inflammation, making your mood stable, and protecting the nervous system. It may aid you in sleeping better and keeping your heart in good condition largely due to the healthy forms of fats in the product.
