Benefits of Using Organic CBD Vape Oil

Benefits of Using Organic CBD Vape Oil

Are there any benefits to using organic CBD vape oil? In fact—are there benefits to using organic anything? Yes, there are, and here's why.

''Organic'' is a food certification that refers to crops and livestock grown and processed in a certain way. For the purposes of this article, we'll be focusing on organic crops only. In the U.S., these need to have been cultivated without the use of synthetic pesticides, GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and petroleum-based or sewage sludge-based fertilizers to earn the ''organic'' label. [1]

Let's discuss the most important benefit of using organic CBD vape oil, starting with the dangers of ingesting non-organic food and other substances.

Dangers of Ingesting Non-Organic in General

Why is this important to hunt down those organic labels when shopping? Well, first of all—you are what you ingest, to modify the well-known saying a bit.

This means that if your food, plant, or livestock were cultivated or raised using poisons, hormones, synthetic fertilizers, and the like, these will find their way into your body when you eat. The same goes for whatever you vape or smoke, naturally.

If your cannabis or hemp plants were cultivated using toxic chemicals, these will find their way into your body when you vape or smoke.

As you can imagine, a buildup of these unnatural substances in the body can lead to toxicity and imbalances that can eventually cause serious health problems. These problems can include birth defects, weakened immune systems, allergies, cancer, and symptoms like chronic headaches, poor digestion, etc.

Children and fetuses are especially vulnerable. Early exposure to environmental poisons could lead to developmental delays, behavioral disorders, autism, immune system harm, and motor dysfunction.

Also, poisons get transferred from mother to child in the womb or via breastfeeding, so pregnant women and breastfeeding moms are a vulnerable population, too. [1]

Also, Cannabis Is a Soil Cleanser!

Of course, exactly the same goes for hemp or marijuana from the Cannabis sativa L. plants and the way they're grown. If it's not organically cultivated, vaping, eating, or drinking cannabis or any of its derivatives could end up poisoning you.

In fact, what is sprayed on or fed to the crops during cultivation is not the only concern, as plants are natural phytoremediators, and cannabis or hemp is considered ideal for this purpose.

In a newsletter distributed by the United Nations Environment Programme, phytoremediation gets defined as "the efficient use of plants to remove, detoxify or immobilize environmental contaminants in a growth matrix (soil, water or sediments) through the natural biological, chemical or physical activities and processes of the plants.”

These contaminants landed there in the first place because of industrial, military, and agricultural activities—either due to ignorance, lack of vision, or carelessness. Through phytoremediation, the soil, water, and sediments are decontaminated, with the toxins landing up in the plants—great for the environment. [2]

Cannabis and hemp are considered ideal natural phytoremediators.

In an overview of the phytoremediation capacity of Cannabis sativa L., it was found to be an attractive species for this purpose. The plant is fairly hardy and adaptive, not difficult to cultivate, holds a great capacity to store toxic metals in its parts, and of course, especially hemp's biomass can be used for industrial purposes too. [3]

The problem is easy to spot—if the plant parts are full of poison, for whatever reason, this means it could eventually land up in your body if you ingest non-organic CBD products.

Therefore, be sure that the crop your products are made from was cultivated organically and by farmers aware of the dangers of toxic soil.

Project CBD gives a great tip, suggesting that you buy your organic CBD oil from states or countries where hemp cultivation is legal. This means that its growth is most likely government-regulated, with stringent guidelines for safe farming. [4]

So, the main benefit of using organic CBD vape oil is that you avoid getting poisoned. It is not clear how much nutrients are conferred via vaping, but organic cannabis is most likely richer in phytonutrients than those commercially grown.

What Does Science Say?

Some argue that there's not much difference between organically grown vs. commercially grown crops, but hard science talks differently. Organically grown plants tend to be not only free from known toxins but more abundant in certain nutrients.

For instance, one comparison trial, published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, compared the content of some nutrients in organically vs. conventionally grown onions. This was done over a six-year period. The researchers found that bioactive compounds such as flavonoids and anthocyanins, as well as antioxidant content,  were higher in organically grown onions than the conventionally grown crop. [5]

Furthermore, a 2014 British Journal of Nutrition-published review of 343 peer-reviewed articles and studies found that there are "statistically significant and meaningful differences in composition between organic and non-organic crops/crop-based foods.''

Additionally, the researchers note, the frequency of occurrence of pesticide residues was found to be four times higher in conventional crops, which also contained significantly higher concentrations of a toxic metal called ''Cd.''

In contrast, the researchers found that organic crops, on average, have:

  • higher concentrations of antioxidants
  • lower concentrations of Cd
  • lower incidence of pesticide residues than the non-organic comparators. [6]

CBD helps with insomnia.

Organic CBD Oil Benefits

Using CBD, you could draw many benefits, as it is good for the following:

  • Improves insomnia
  • Stops seizures
  • Lowers anxiety
  • Lessens pain
  • Offers relief from eczema
  • Improves PTSD treatment
  • Combats nausea
  • Fights inflammation
  • Reduces the risk of diabetes
  • Reduces or even eliminates depression

The list goes on. Supportive research for most of these is still in nascent phases, but the FDA recently approved the first CBD drug for severe epilepsy conditions. This would not have happened without a very thorough study and well-designed clinical research.

However, CBD is safe to use, and it will do you no harm to experiment with organic CBD oil. Never replace prescribed pharmaceutical drugs with CBD or any other cannabis product without the knowledge and approval of your doctor.
