CBD and hemp oil is a growing industry that’s constantly evolving to meet the needs of consumers and to reflect the newest research.
One of the newer terms in the industry is “PCR hemp oil”…
You may be wondering, what is PCR hemp oil and is it the same as CBD?
Fortunately, in this post, we’re going to explain what PCR hemp oil is and a whole lot more so let’s get started…
Why is it called PCR and not CBD?
PCR hemp oil is CBD oil.
It stands for phytocannabinoid rich hemp oil.
In most instances, it’s derived using alcohol distillation. It’s possible to extract the terpenes separately and then combine them back into the CBD but then its not truly full spectrum.
In order to be considered a true full spectrum CBD, it has to contain the naturally occurring terpenes and cannabinoids from the plant.
When examining the cannabis plant, you need to understand that CBD and THC are just two of the compounds present in the plant.
Some of the other non-psychotropic phytocannabinoids include:
• Cannabigerol (CBG)
• Cannabidiolic acid (CBDA)
• Cannabinol (CBN)
• Cannabichromene (CBC)
• Cannabidvarin (CBDV)
• Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV)
There are 100’s of other compounds that are within the plant as well. These are just a few of the more commonly discussed ones. The majority don’t have any of the psychoactive effects that make you high though.
PCR hemp oil is derived from all the naturally occurring cannabinoids in the plant instead of just isolates or pure CBD.
By using the full spectrum of the plant, it’s possible to extract more of the beneficial cannabinoids. This is considered more healing due to the “entourage effect”. Simply put, the entourage effect is the idea that these cannabinoids work better together than apart.
Extraction of PCR oil can deliver over 100 different cannabinoids, over 20 flavonoids, and provide the most concentrated phytochemical rich oil possible.
CBD oil is being used as a general term to describe any of the cannabis oils. Which is not an accurate description.
Therefore, many companies are going to the term PCR to describe their oil and to give the oil the proper distinction.
PCR hemp oil is of higher quality and includes more of the cannabis plant compounds than just CBD.
Does PCR hemp oil get you high?
PCR hemp oil will not get you high.
This is because there are no agents within the oil that can cause someone to get high. THC is the compound that causes you to feel high. This compound is only available in trace amounts if at all.
That being said, it would take a lot of oil to even begin to get someone high at the trace levels in most PCR hemp oils. Our PCR oil contains zero THC so you would never experience a high from them.
It has many benefits that help in balancing and healing your body. PCR oil is able to help with anxiety, depression, inflammation, and even pain.
The method of ingestion will determine how long a dose will both take to kick in as well as how long its effects last.
For someone who uses vaping as a method of ingestion, the effects will last a few hours. Since it’s easy to carry around this is not an issue, and someone can continue dosing throughout the day.
Other methods such as edibles and sublingual tinctures work differently depending on how much you take, your weight, and metabolism.
There are also methods of using lotions to absorb the oil through the skin. This method works fairly quickly and will last several hours before needing to be done again. But it doesn’t work the same as an ingested CBD product. Lotions are better for spot treating pain.
Regardless of the method of ingestion, it’s important to recognize how PCR oil works to help the body.
Unlike other vitamins or supplements, PCR hemp oils are able to work on all the functions of the endocannabinoid system. This would include:
• Pain receptors and perception.
• Regulation of the body.
• Cardiovascular and circulatory system.
• Inflammation and muscle function.
• Digestion and gut health.
• Management and regulation of mood and responses.
As the messaging system of the body, it’s important to keep everything in balance so that our bodies can achieve optimum health.
PCR hemp oils for pets
Pets can also benefit from PCR hemp oil. It’s been found to help pets with anxiety disorders, hip pain, joint pains, lack of appetite, and many other issues.
It can aid in:
- Stopping cancer cells from developing and help with relieving side effects of cancer treatment.
- Reducing the anxiety pets feel when their owners are away or other common stressors.
- Without using harsh medications, it can aid in the treatment of seizures.
- Hemp oil can also protect the nervous system.
- It’s able to help prevent and relieve inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
- Positive results have occurred in boosting cardiovascular health.
- There are also benefits in treating autoimmune disease and reducing symptoms.
Sounds almost too good to be true, doesn’t it?
It’s not and more importantly, your pet won’t get high.
PCR oil is available in many different forms for pets, such as treats and sublingual tinctures. Many vets can help in choosing what dosage or form of the oil would be best for your individual pet’s needs.
Doses are usually based on the weight of your pet and the ailment that is being treated.
The first dosage recommended will often be a starter dose and you will continue increasing until a maintenance dose is reached. Similar to how medications are currently done.
We typically find that 1 mg per 10 lbs of body weight to be an effective starting dose.
Choosing an oil that’s high quality is important for the treatment of your pet. Low-quality products don’t have the same standards and can’t guarantee quality.
Our PCR oils are all produced in the United States and meet all the US standards for quality control.
As the hemp industry continues to grow and evolve there will be more information available. Like with pharmaceutical medications, hemp will begin to have a stronger presence as its natural ability to balance the body of humans and animals becomes more recognized.
Terms will also continue to evolve, such as CBD and PCR. This is due to strains changing and science recognizing the different compounds that are present in cannabis.
