OLIO ESSENZIALE DI CANAPA
ITALIAN HEMP ESSENTIAL OIL
Also known Cannabis sativa, Hemp essential oil This oil is 100% pure and natural and appropriate for use in Aromatherapy.
Cannabis, or Hemp, essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and stalks of Cannabis sativa strains that are very low in THC, less than 0,2%.
Since the delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol ("THC") content in the Cannabis sativa essential oil that we use in the formula is lower than that envisaged by Law n°2 of 2 December 2016, our "Cannabis oil" is an absolutely legal product and contains no narcotic properties.

The essential oil consists almost entirely of commonly-occuring monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes. Terpenes, a class of phytochemicals found in a wide variety of plants, are among the many chemical compounds found in the hemp plant.
Hemp contains hundreds of different terpenes in varying combinations. One of these terpenes is beta-caryophyllene, 15-23 % , which has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.
Beta-caryophyllene is present in many essential oils, such as clove oil, rosemary and black pepper.
Even in low concentrations, some of these terpenoids, such as citronellol and α-terpineol, are deeply calming upon inhalation, reach receptors in the olfactory bulb and send "…mood-altering messages via olfactory nerves directly to the limbic region and hippocampus.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP ESSENTIAL OIL AND CANNABINOIDS
1. Essential Oils are simply the volatile, aromatic portions of any plant, obtained by steam or hydrodistillation. Non-volatiles are not accessible by steam (or hydro) distillation processes. Steam distillation is not a solvent extraction process, but an entirely different type of separations process.
2. Cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, are not volatile molecules. They are semi-volatile at best, but because of their size, polarity and molecular weight, do not lend themselves to being obtainable by steam distillation processes. To isolate cannabinoid fractions in liquid form from the cannabis plant, one MUST employ some kind of solvent extraction process. Ethanol extraction, butane extraction or CO2 extraction are 3 common solvent extraction processes used to concentrate cannabinoid fractions. When people use the term CBD oil they are referring to a product that is obtained by a solvent extraction process, its not related to an essential oil.
3. Cannabis essential oil contains almost entirely monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes. Beta-caryophyllene (a sesquiterpene, not a cannabinoid) is typically the main component in cannabis essential oil . When THC is detected its ALWAYS at a trace percentage, like 0.01-0.3%.
