Botanical Oil Blending: Terpenoids Cannabinoids THC CBD Ratios
The recent changes to cannabis research is opening up a new era for cannabis patients, doctors, scientist and engineers. One of the trending topics is botanical blending, aka the process of crafting cannabis oils.
Why Blend Oils? Terpenoids Cannabinoids
A botanical oil blending platform is a tool or system that is used to combine various plant-based oils, including cannabinoids and terpenoids, to create specific formulations or mixtures.
Cannabinoids are a group of chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant that are known for their therapeutic and psychoactive properties.
Terpenoids are a class of organic compounds that are found in plants and are responsible for the distinctive odors of many herbs, flowers, and fruits.
Create Mixtures of Desired Effects: THC CBD Ratios
In the context of botanical oil blending, cannabinoids and terpenoids are often combined in specific ratios to create mixtures that have specific desired effects.
A blend that is high in cannabidiol (CBD) and low in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) may be used to create a product that has a calming effect without producing psychoactive effects.
Alternatively, a blend that is high in THC and low in CBD may be used to create a product that is more psychoactive.
Methods and Technologies for Botanical Oil Blends
There are various methods and technologies that can be used to create botanical oil blends, including solvent-based extraction techniques, supercritical CO2 extraction, and mechanical pressing.
The choice of method will depend on the specific characteristics and qualities of the oils being used, as well as the desired end product.
The National Institutes of Health Funded Research
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has conducted and funded research on the potential therapeutic effects of cannabinoids, including cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and has published a number of articles and research studies on the topic.
Overall, the research suggests that CBD and THC have potential therapeutic benefits for a number of medical conditions, but more research is needed to fully understand their mechanisms of action and optimal use in medical treatment.
The National Institutes of Health: CBD Research
CBD has been shown to have a number of potential therapeutic effects, including reducing anxiety and improving sleep, as well as anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. It has also been studied for its potential to treat certain types of epilepsy, although more research is needed to confirm its effectiveness for this indication.
The National Institutes of Health: THC Research
THC has also been studied for its potential therapeutic effects, including pain relief, appetite stimulation, and reduction of nausea and vomiting. It has also been studied as a treatment for a number of medical conditions, including multiple sclerosis and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. However, THC is also known to have psychoactive effects, which can limit its use in certain situations.
Overall, the NIH advises caution in the use of CBD and THC oils as medicine, and recommends that they be used only under the supervision of a healthcare professional.
