1. What is CBD?
Cannabinoidol (CBD) is one of over 100 compounds found in cannabis that belongs to a class of molecules called cannabinoids.
The most well-known cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is a psychoactive compound found in most marijuana strains and produces the various effects most users would associate with being “high.” CBD offers none of that.
The human body contains its own endocannabinoid system (ECS), which houses various cannabinoid receptors.
The chemical compounds that interact with the ECS support memory, mood, brain reward systems, and energy balance.
CBD naturally acts on the ECS system’s signals to increase receptor function and flow, with no psychoactive reactions in the body.
2. What are some uses for CBD?
Research for CBD is as follows:
- Support healthy joints—Research suggests that CBD has the ability to help keep with joint health.
- Increasing the Appetite of Ill Patients—Patients who fall ill, have prolonged hospital visits, or under chemotherapy tend to lose their appetite and become malnourished over time. CBD has been shown to help with appetite.
- Support brain health—A study has shown that CBD has the ability to help with oxidative stress. Our bodies naturally produce free radicals, which are damaging. Free radicals overwhelm organs and inhibit repair.
- Relief from symptoms of menopause—Evidence is growing that suggests CBD oil can help relieve symptoms of menopause.
3. How do I Use CBD oil?
Our Full-spectrum CBD Oil tincture comes in dropper form, making it easy to carry with you anywhere.
We recommend placing two droppers once daily under your tongue and holding them in your mouth for 30 seconds before swallowing.
After a week, you can cut the dose to one dropper. For a more relaxed sleep, take 1 drop using the above methods, 40 minutes before bed.
Although some have reported that it gives them energy so do experiment with what’s best with your body. Every individual is different.
You can also try vaping your CBD oil; we recommend using the Vaporesso Aurora Play Kit as it works great with our oils.
And if you don’t like the idea of vaping, how about our CBD Queen gummies?
4. What is The Difference Between Hemp Oil and CBD Oil?
Hemp oil is extracted from the seeds of hemp plants. While they can be extracted from any cannabis plant, industrial hemp (non-drug use) typically is the only plant used for oil extraction. In terms of usage, hemp oil provides more benefits for everyday use.
It can be used for cooking, moisturizing, soaps, the making of bio-diesel fuel, the formation of plastic products, and even vegetable oils.
Hemp oil contains low levels of CBD, meaning it offers little therapeutic benefit.
CBD oil is extracted from the flowers, leaves, and stalks of hemp. Its properties are more beneficial for overall wellness and body support.
All of these benefits come with no psychoactive response in the system.
5. Does CBD Contain THC? Will It Show Up on a Drug Test?
Unfortunately, CBD can result in a positive for THC—much like eating a poppy seed bagel can cause a positive for opiates depending on the type of test.
Our product contains THC in a legal 0.2 percent amount, which is enough to cause the “Entourage Effect.”
The Entourage Effect is the synergy observed between various marijuana compounds. Ironically, alcohol, which is common and damaging, doesn’t require any test, but this plant does. Use your best judgement if planning to be tested.
6. Can I Use CBD Oil If I’m pregnant?
Studies on mice have shown that CBD does not affect developing embryos.
However you should consult with a physician who understands CBD and its properties if you’re considering to use it while pregnant.
7. Can I Use CBD Oil While I’m Breastfeeding?
Very little is known about CBD and lactation. However cannabinoids, naturally occur in breast milk, prompting some to believe that cannabinoids support the immunity, development, and functioning of new born babies.
Individuals should use discretion and consult with a physician who understands CBD and its properties before use.
8. Will CBD Make Me Sleepy?
Reported studies suggest CBD has the opposite effect of THC. CBD promotes alertness and can boost your energy at low levels.
9. Will CBD Suppress or increase my appetite?
CBD promotes appetite, according to the National Cancer Institute. Individuals who are depressed, suffer from anxiety, or who are malnourished from a lack of eating can reportedly stimulate appetite through CBD use.
10. What Type of CBD oil should I buy?
For starters, your CBD oil should be organic, non-GMO, soy and gluten free. It should be grown in soil that is free of pesticides, herbicides, and artificial fertilizers.
An ideal CBD oil, should be easily absorbed by the body, fast-acting to provide its benefits immediately, and should be recognized as a top CBD in comparison to others.
(Note – if you suffer from aching joints or muscles you should take a look at our body oil infused with CBD).
11. Is CBD Oil Legal In My State or Country?
If you live in the UK, U.S, Germany, Italy, Spain or Israel, it is legal for you to purchase our CBD products. Remember this product only offers trace amounts of THC, the compound responsible for marijuana’s psychoactive properties.
*The FDA has not evaluated the validity or truthfulness of these claims; therefore, we encourage you to review published researches relating to the benefits and properties of CBD hemp oils and other CBD products.
