Like all aspects of our business plan, what attracts us to Cannabidiol extraction from hemp is the ability to generate profit while improving lives. CBD extraction is one of the most exciting product processes to come to the new hemp industry in Canada thanks to the believed medicinal value of CBD, and the many possible health applications of CBDs in the marketplace. Blue Sky is rapidly advancing plans to emerge as a large scale extractor of CBD in order to supply demand for CBD in Canada as well as the International marketplace.
Blue Sky is in discussions with a number of important industry stakeholders regarding CBD extraction and we expect to announce firm plans in the very near future.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid found in hemp and marijuana. Unlike the most well known cannabinoid called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD does not have any psychoactive effects (i.e. CBD does not get you ‘stoned’). This makes CBD the ideal cannabinoid to be used medically as it is suspected to provide the benefits associated with the medicinal qualities of cannabis but without of the effects that have lead to THC being restricted in the past.
CBD is found in a number of different parts of the hemp plant with varying degrees of concentration. The highest concentration is contained in the trichombes that are found in abundance in and around to the calyxes of budding flowers. This is the main area of focus for the extraction of CBD.
There is currently significant medical and scientific research being conducted on the medical and health effects of CBD, but existing users claim that CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent, an anti-convulsant, reduces levels of anxiety, and is a potent antioxidant. We trust the research community will continue to develop a better understanding of the medicinal properties of CBD as more people look to CBD and cannabis for improving health outcomes.
