Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a cannabis compound that has medical benefits. It interacts with the cannabinoid receptors in the body to ease pain, soothe anxiety, and reduce inflammation.
This depends on the product you choose. We offer vaping options, creams, salves, tinctures, and more. Essentially, some products were designed to be applied topically while others are consumed orally. We can guide you toward one or the other.
Full-spectrum CBD oil contains THC and other cannabinoids that are not limited to strictly CBD. Isolate contains only CBD and any listed cannabinoids within the final CBD products.
If you are using full-spectrum CBD, you may test positive (as these can sometimes contain THC). However, if you are using an isolate, it should not make you test positive.
CBD works by providing symptomatic relief. It is not a cure for your ailments, but it can help you treat your symptoms. From nausea to pain, anxiety to depression, CBD may help. Compare your physical and mental state before and after taking the product. If you do not experience any relief, feel free to try a higher dosage.
Every human brain has several receptors that make up the endocannabinoid system. These receptors are called CB1s and CB2s and they’re known for having a large impact on your well-being and general health. The CB1 receptors in your brain are usually associated with emotional responses and can even affect mood, appetite, coordination, pain and movements. Your CB2 receptors are found throughout your body and can affect your immune system, especially throughout the tissues of your spleen and tonsils. While a variety of things set off your endocannabinoid system, CBD and THC are two exterior compounds that have an effect on the individual systems. In fact, your endocannabinoid system is what picks up on these chemical's presence in the body and causes your body to react to them. The majority of the assertions associated with the effects of both THC and CBD are due to how they interact within your endocannabinoid system. While there are numerous studies still in the making that are measuring CBD’s long-term and short-term effects, it is a known fact that this is the system the compound interacts with.
You cannot get high from only CBD oil. THC is the psychoactive chemical cannabinoid that makes you high. It is not present in properly distilled CBD. CBD oil on its own does not have any psychoactive properties. You could find some full-spectrum CBD oil products that have trace amounts of THC in them, but it will not be a high enough concentration to actually make you high. If you believe, however, that you could be at risk of random drug tests at your place of work, you might spend the time searching for CBD oil products that are completely devoid of THC compounds.
Like anything else on this earth, some people are bound to have allergic reactions to a variety of substances. CBD oil, and indeed any sort of oil, will need to be derived from the original product in some fashion and that could result in it coming into contact with could cause your allergies to flare up. That being said, very few people experience any sort of negative effects from CBD oil though it can sometimes be related to feelings of fatigue as well as diarrhea and changes in weight and appetite.
“Full spectrum,” also known as “whole plant” CBD oil, will contain small amounts of THC in it. It will also contain other cannabinoids in small quantities. The idea behind users taking “full spectrum” doses is mainly because they're hoping to access all of the flavonoids and terpenes present in the plant, hence the term “whole plant.” Isolate CBD oils are made by pulling out only the CBD oil in the plant, hence the THC and other cannabinoids will not be present in the oils.
“Hemp oil” is the name given to any other oil that’s isolated from the hemp plant. CBD oil is, specifically, an oil that contains a high concentration of CBD. While CBD oil is often hemp oil, not all hemp oil is CBD. In fact, much of the hemp oil you’ll find in retail areas around town will actually be hemp seed oil, which also does not include CBD.
It certainly is. Nearly all CBD oil is actually made from industrial hemp which is the same plant many use to make textiles and hemp seeds. The plant itself could contain very small amounts of THC but not anywhere near enough to make you feel high or make you fail a drug test even.
Provided you haven’t purchased it in bulk and it’s within their 3 oz guidelines for containers, you’ll certainly be able to get it through airport security in the United States. However, it might not get past customs in some countries. CBD is not legal in every country and while many exist in grey areas as far as the legality of the substance, it’s actually illegal in some countries like Australia and China. Those countries see possessing CBD oil products worthy of fines and even jail time in some cases so we’d recommend checking on where you’re going before you take off and try it.
Terpenes are essential oils found in plants. There are around 200 different types of terpenes in cannabis. They are responsible for giving the plant it’s distinctive aroma and flavor. In general, they appear to interact with the endocannabinoid receptors in your brain in a similar fashion to THC and CBD. They are not present in isolate CBD, they are present in full spectrum CBD oil products, though.
You sure can! Many people administer CBD treatments to their pets for similar reasons to humans such as if your pet experiences seizures, chronic pain and even anxiety. Fascinatingly, dogs have a higher number of endocannabinoid receptors in their brain and thus are very receptive to CBD and THC compounds. Since they’re very sensitive to the THC, we suggest potentially avoiding a full-spectrum option for your pup and choosing from an isolate CBD oil instead.
