What is CBD?
If you have found yourself asking, “What is CBD?”, look no further. Cannabidiol(CBD) is one of at least 85 cannabinoids found in cannabis and industrial hemp. It is a major constituent of the plant, and represents up to 40% in its extracts. It is the decarboxylated form of CBDa (the ‘a’ means acid). Compared with THC, cannabidiol is considered to have a broader scope of medical applications than THC. Cannabidiol has displayed sedative effects in animal tests. Other research indicates that CBD increases alertness.
How To Calculate CBD Per Gram Of CBD Oil In this tutorial, we will be teaching you how to calculate the amount of CBD within 1 gram (weight) or 1 ml (volume) of CBD oil. Each gram is made up of 1,000 milligrams. In this case, we will say that you are looking at a 20% CBD Oil. This means that out of 1000 mg’s, 20%, or 0.2, of that is going to be CBD. Multiply 1000 by 0.2, and you will get 200 mg’s of CBD per gram of 20% CBD oil. The formula for this is 1000 * .[CBD%] = Your total CBD per gram.
