That said Hemp oil has a number of associated benefits as it contains antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins A, C and E.

 

CBD Has Two Main Extraction Methods

CBD is extracted most commonly in tow ways i) solvent extraction which uses a solvent to extract the compounds from the plant. Solvent extraction can be done using chemicals like Ethonal, Butane and Kerosene. ii) The other method uses heat extraction this is where steam is used to separate and extract the CBD compounds.
