What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol, is one of the primary natural cannabinoids found in the industrial Cannabis Sativa hemp plant.
What are Cannabinoids??
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that bind the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) receptors throughout your brain and body. There are over 113 known different cannabinoids found in hemp.
What are Enodocannabinoids and the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?
Endocannabinoids function to help the body maintain homeostasis, or biological harmony in response to changes within the environment. The ECS is involved in a wide variety of processes, including pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function, and reproductive function. In the 1990s, scientists found that cannabis mimicked endocannabinoids.
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are compounds in plants that give them their distinctive aroma and flavor and have beneficial effects for us. Terpenes are removed in the isolation process to make pure CBD.
CBD vs THC
CBD and THC both come from the Cannabis Sativa plant species, but they come from different breeds of the plant. Down to their molecular structure, they are similar, but with one huge difference. THC bonds with a certain receptor in the brain, where CBD does not create that bond. This bond that THC makes with this brain receptor is what causes psychoactive effects and the “high” feeling associated with marijuana. Since CBD doesn’t bond, it doesn’t product any mind-altering feelings. THC and CBD both have beneficial elements. The good news is that most of them are attainable through CBD-use without THC.
Will CBD get me high?
No, it’s not pot, marijuana or Mary Jane. While CBD is taken from the same plant, it lacks the psychoactive and mind altering effects. There is no high feeling when you take non-THC CBD.
Does CBD Show Up On Drug Tests?
Drug tests routinely screen for illegal substances, including THC. However, the tests do not always screen for CBD. Whether your workplace uses a standard 5-panel or 10-panel screening, neither of them test for the presence of CBD but certain test may show it.
How to use CBD?
Ingestion (swallowed) – Into the bloodstream through the digestive system. Recommended to take on a full stomach paired with healthy fats.
Sublingual – Hold the CBD under your tongue for 60-90 seconds to absorb into the bloodstream through mucus membranes.
Topical – For mental considerations, use at the vein sights on your neck, the bottoms of your feet. For pain, apply topically at points of discomfort. CBD will absorb into the skin, but very little will reach the bloodstream.
What dosage should I use?
There is no specified dosage for CBD. Each person will require a different dosage to reach the degree of synergy that they are seeking. Body chemistry, body type, physiology and receptors are all factors that can affect different dosage needs and can even change in an individual person over time.
It is recommended to start as low as possible and move up, based on how your body reacts.
How to read and understand MG of your CBD
There’s been some misunderstanding on how to interpret the amount of CBD in the entire bottle versus much much CBD per drop or dropper. Let me help to clarify.
A 500mg bottle = 500mg total CBD dose in the entire bottle.
A full dropper itself = 1ml.
There are 30ml usually in a bottle, and with a little math, we find that there are 16.6ml of CBD in one full dropper.
Does CBD interact with other meds? Possibly. You should consult with your doctor if you are taking any medications.
Will I get addicted? According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.”
