Frequently Asked Questions
CBD is a natural chemical compound found in Cannabis Sativa plants (otherwise known as hemp). It’s one of more than 100 elements that can be derived from hemp, and is formally referred to as cannabidiol.
In essence, CBD and THC have the same origin: both chemical compounds can be derived from hemp plants.
Even so,their effect on the human body is very different.
THC is a psychoactive component that is responsible for the sensation of being “high” after smoking or otherwise consuming marijuana.
CBD doesn’t have that effect. It interacts with the endocannabinoid located in the human brain that is naturally responsible for stress and anxiety relief, as well as multiple other bodily functions. By stimulating it, CBD brings a calming sensation to the body and mind.
CBD oil is the most natural form and the primary product of hemp processing that can be later used in the production of gummies, topicals, vapors, and so on. It is created by extracting cannabidiol from a hemp plant. There are three types of CBD oil: full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate. While the latter is a pure form of CBD without any other chemical compounds in it, full and broad spectrum CBD products also contain other components of hemp.
Although the scientific community is still in discussion about certain aspects of CBD use, multiple studies have shown significant benefits of CBD use. Those include stress and anxiety relief, better sleep quality, sharper focus, more stable mood throughout the day, pain management, physical recovery and many others. Besides, natural effects of CBD can be enhanced by combining it with natural extracts and other ingredients that have matching properties.
The short answer is no.
Although people may develop an addiction by smoking marijuana (which contains CBD), CBD oil offers a safe way to experience the medical benefits of marijuana without the psychoactive effect that could lead to addiction.
CBD is not a medical product and is
intended for individual use. The dosage and frequency of CBD are adjustable but
CBD products should always be taken with caution as high dosage may lead to
side effects, such as loss of appetite, nausea or fatigue.
Besides, CBD may produce a certain reaction in combination with some medicines that are
intended for daily use. To avoid undesired effects and ensure safe consumption,
an advisory consultation with a medical professional is advised.
In essence, CBD hemp only produces
blower buds that have a low THC content. That means that flowers are legal and
do not have a psychoactive effect on the human body.
Most CBD manufacturers use hemp flowers as the initial source of CBD for their products.
Yes. Hemp flowers are safe to consume and they contain a very small amount of THC, which means that smoking them will not cause a psychoactive effect.
Consumption of CBD with very little
or no THC doesn’t produce any notable effect. It simply brings about a sense of
calm and allows the body and mind to relax.
Speaking ofthe taste of CBD, it depends on the product that you choose. While capsules are completely tasteless due to their coating, gummies usually have added sugar or flavorings that are meant to leave an enjoyable taste. And when it comes to pure CBD oil, it has a mild, earthy taste that is not irritating. Most consumers can tolerate it without much effort.
Yes, some people are allergic to CBD. In such cases, using it may produce side effects.
Generally speaking, yes. CBD is a natural ingredient, so using pure CBD oil on animals is safe. However, due to various additives that are widely used in CBD products, it’s important to study the label first to make sure that other ingredients are also not harmful to your pet.
