How Long Does CBD Oil Last

Cannabidiol oil seems to be one of the latest and lasting trends to stay in the cannabis industry. Besides the buzz surrounding the plant, the numerous benefits that people claim to see and experience are more than enough to urge many others to try this miracle worker.

These days, many people take CBD products and cannabidiol oil-based items on the daily. Whether it’s to alleviate some of their chronic pain, to treat stress and anxiety, to help manage inflammation and other similar conditions, or to simply feel energized yet zen, there are tons of reasons why individuals are flocking to this product.

Because of the popularity and the recent surge of interest in cannabidiol in the industry, it appears that interested users and even seasoned players have a lot of questions surrounding this liquid gold. One of the most common questions about this is how long it lasts – whether this refers to its shelf life or its effects on the body.

This is certainly a great question. After all, a bottle of high-quality CBD oil is quite hard to come by, especially when it tends to command a relatively high price point. If you are not one to waste cannabis products and want to prolong your use of this oil for as long as you can, you might only end up using a few drops a day, thus taking a bottle a few months’ time or even a year before you can fully consume this.

If you are wondering the same thing, worry not. This article has got you covered.

CBD Oil – What is It?

CBD oil, short for cannabidiol, is a substance derived from the cannabis sativa plant. This is also known as marijuana. Although marijuana is known for its intoxicating and mind-altering substance thanks to the presence of tetrahydrocannabinol, otherwise known as THC, cannabidiol is free from the psychoactive effects the plant is known for.

How CBD Oil Works

Instead of giving users a feeling of intoxication or a sense of ‘high,’ cannabidiol works by inhibiting, interacting, and stimulating the endocannabinoid system of the body in order to produce more cannabinoids. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for controlling a wide range of bodily functions, including pain and pleasure reception, sleep, mood, memory, appetite, and many others.

Besides stimulating the endocannabinoid system to produce more cannabinoids, cannabidiol is also recognized for its ability to prolong the presence of cannabinoids in the body.

This compound also works by influencing non-cannabinoid receptors, meaning it can address and treat different conditions within an individual, such as managing psychotic disorders, treating pain and inflammation, and even address stress and anxiety.

Effects of CBD Oil on the Body

Highly regarded for its non-psychoactive properties, cannabidiol oil makes for an ideal addition to managing a wealth of conditions. As mentioned, this is used for managing stress, anxiety, and depression, and even treating symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

One study even links the consumption of cannabidiol in the reduction of certain heart conditions, like those of heart attacks and strokes. It is also used in addressing different types of epilepsy as well as treating chronic pain and inflammation.

The effects of CBD oil on the body from one user to another. This can depend on the dosage taken by the user and how this was consumed (i.e. mixed with food sources, straight like a tincture, capsules, topicals, and the like). Other factors that may influence this are your body’s weight, metabolism, frequency of use,

In general, the effects of such products can stay in the body for at least two to eight hours. However, the effects can kick in as early as 15 minutes if this is consumed sublingually or via vaping. It may take an hour or two for effects to take place when edibles and topicals are taken.

Those new to the scene are advised to take it slow and small, meaning a low serving of approximately five to 10 milligrams. This way, you can ascertain the effects this compound has on you and your body. You can easily work your way up once you are accustomed to its effects.

Shelf Life of CBD Oil

shelf life of CBD Oil

CBD oil products are said to have a shelf life ranging anywhere from 14 to 24 months. While those past its prime won’t necessarily turn bad or go rancid right away, the product may lose some of its potency over time. Past its date of expiration, the enzymes present within the product may oxidize and break down, making the product become less effective than before.

Some indications that cannabidiol oil has already gone bad are the presence of a funky and skunky aroma, or an otherwise assaulting odor, as well as rancidity and cloudiness within the oil. Moreover, oil that is already past its prime may appear to have a thicker texture and have some bubbling inside, thereby losing its smooth and silky consistency.

A change in color may also indicate that the product has already gone to a point of no return. Use this with caution. While this may not make you sick if you consume this in small doses, it’s best to toss bottles away that have been sitting in your shelves or storage spaces for far too long.

Just like the product’s effectiveness on the body, there are a number of factors that play in determining the shelf life of CBD.

One of the main considerations you have to bear in mind is the manufacturing and extracting process. The hemp or marijuana plant it was derived from plays a huge role in its shelf life. Those that are grown in nutrient-rich soil and without the use of artificial preservatives may bring forth a more potent and healthier plant, which can help in producing quality results, especially when paired with quality and state-of-the-art extraction methods.

In contrast, plants that are placed in poor conditions and are extracted using industrial methods tend to have a shorter shelf life. In terms of extraction methods, the industry standard is said to be those that use C02 extraction method. This type of extraction helps the compound stay fresher and more stable than ever because it does not destabilize the compounds within.

The packaging of the CBD oil is also a factor in determining its shelf life. Tinctures or oil products stored in dark blue or amber bottles are protected against the sun, light and air, all of which break down the presence of cannabinoids and the potency of CBD oil extracts.

Your way of storing these items also play a role in extending your item’s shelf life. Those that are stored away from the sun, heat, and air tend to stay fresher for a longer period of time.

Prolonging the Life of CBD Oil

CBD oil can be quite expensive, particularly if you use it on a daily basis. Because of this, you want to ensure that your hard-earn liquid gold lasts for a long time. One way to do this is by storing these away from heat and sunlight, and instead, placing these in cool, dark places. These can be placed in room temperature on the shelf, just make sure these are not exposed to the heat of the kitchen or other similar environments.

Other people go the extra mile to prolong their cannabidiol oil by refrigerating it. While this can produce a cooling effect, this can slightly alter the consistency of the product, so be wary when trying this approach out for yourself.

For those directly using CBD oil under their tongue, make sure not to let the tip of the dropper touch any part of your mouth. This prevents contamination of the said products and hinders the production of germs within the bottle. Better yet, you can use a spoon.

The Bottom Line

Now that you know the answers to your questions, you can now practice these storage guides not only to prolong the shelf life of CBD oil, but also to help you get bang for your buck. With these steps, you can ensure that your miracle product won’t go to waste.

With the passage of prop 207, legal cannabis sales for recreational purposes become a new norm for Arizona residents. The legal cannabis market is a multi-billion dollar industry with a projected worth of $73 billion globally by 2027. That’s why it is important for local residents of Arizona to look for partnerships that benefit local communities within Arizona instead of foreign corporations.

Social Equity Partners’ mission is to assist Arizona residents who were convicted of non-violent cannabis felonies to apply for adult-use marijuana dispensary and cultivation establishment licenses through the program offered by Social Equity Partners. Their goal is to offer Arizona residents with cannabis convictions extensive support in receiving a license and establishing a cannabis business through the Social Equity Program. The founder Thomas Lopez was convicted in 2001 by the State of Arizona with a felony for marijuana possession. He understands the obstacles of what it takes to have personal and professional growth after a criminal conviction which is why he founded Social Equity Partners.

Under the ELEVATE brand label, one of the services that Social Equity Partners offers is access to their fully conceptualized dispensary. ELEVATE is a boutique dispensary with the aim to modernize and deliver the highest-quality marijuana products, with locations planned for Sunnyslope, Glendale and Tempe. ELEVATE aims to serve the local communities of Arizona as a small independent business that keeps money in the community instead of generating profits for foreign corporations while forgetting about the concerns of the local citizens.

Applicants will receive assistance with developing a broad web presence, social media campaigns, and professional branding once accepted into partnering with Social Equity Partners. They will also have access to their pool of local investors who are local community members looking to provide capital for starting dispensaries that benefit local residents instead of funneling money into corporations.

Social Equity Partners will be there to offer assistance during the application process for Arizona residents who are applying with felony cannabis convictions by helping them complete the application, create a compelling business plan, and verify financial requirements.  The goal for Social Equity Partners is to ensure that all funding remains local and stays in the community. With this partnership, they believe that applicants have a chance to positively impact their neighborhoods and take part in reinvigorating local economies with locally-based investors’ support.

With a partnership like Social Equity Partners, applicants will have access to full support from land-use lawyers, Realtors, and permitting specialists to help with identifying a site for your cannabis business. Their real estate brokers and lawyers understand the legal requirements for zoning laws for spaces all over Arizona and will help assist partners with finding the right property for their needs. Their partnership increases the likelihood of eligibility for the Social Equity Ownership Program with their proven funding and business plans already in place.

CBD Trends for 2021: Information You Must Have

CBD is the non-psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that serves to treat various physical and mental health problems and does not generate addiction nor dependency at all. This ingredient has become highly popular globally because it collaborates in the relief of diverse conditions of physical and mental health. CBD is constantly evolving to offer solutions that improve people’s quality of life. The CBD trends for 2021 are hopeful, as this ingredient will continue to generate benefits for many. Everything you need to know about the trends of CBD for 2021 is below.

Home-grown CBD

Due to the general confinement of Covid-2019, many more people will choose to grow CBD in their home gardens. People want to be self-sufficient because the pandemic is not over yet. Therefore, urban garden sales are predicted to grow throughout 2021.

Dental Hygiene

Several international companies are manufacturing dental hygiene products such as toothpastes and mouthwashes. The components of CBD would serve to improve oral conditions, preventing cavities and gingivitis. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can also help as an antibiotic for a toothache.

A new drink

CBD seeks to succeed in the beverage industry in 2021. Several drink manufacturing companies are teaming up with those that cultivated cannabis to create drinks based on an infusion of CBD along with other popular drink flavors. This would be an excellent alternative for those who want to drink something more natural. More and more people are rejecting alcohol, artificial juices, and soft drinks. The CBD industry wants to satisfy those needs, offering a totally natural product.

CBD Mattresses

The CBD industry is increasingly creative and offers solutions for every aspect of daily life. CBD is known to be very effective in relieving insomnia and promoting deep sleep. For this reason, several companies are hoping to launch mattresses and covers based on an infusion of CBD.

A better legal structure

One of the big problems with CBD is that it is not fully legally regulated. For this reason, several companies make claims about the CBD without having a true foundation of facts to prove their claims.

The FDA is going to better regulate CBD during 2021 and that will positively impact the quality of products based on that ingredient.

Taking Drops of CBD Oil

Highest quality standards

Currently, the quality standard for growing CBD is high. Unfortunately, there is a lot of contaminated land and that affects the quality of CBD negatively. Therefore, many brands must meet the current requirements or they will not be able to continue working. Brands like WillowCBD offer high-quality CBD products for many levels of consumers.

Positive awareness

Until a few years ago people had negative connotations and thoughts about marijuana. Thanks to the spread of the benefits of CBD, people have completely changed their opinion on this substance. Everyone knows that CBD has no hallucinogenic effects. In addition, people know that this ingredient can improve the quality of life in several ways. Fortunately, this positive trend will continue throughout 2021.

Conclusion

The new CBD trends for 2021 look to generate healthy expectations throughout the world. Everyone hopes to improve their quality of life and many people are hopeful that CBD will provide relief to many of their problems. It is advisable to be well informed based on reputable sources.
