Premium Hemp CBD+
A Brief CBD Guide - What it is and what it’s not
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most popular new health products on the market. After the 2018 Farm Bill in the US making industrial hemp legal, the production of CBD has grown exponentially. It’s everywhere. You can even buy it at gas stations.
Some factors you should consider:
- Not all CBD is the same quality.
- Not all dosages are the same.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of 113 identified compounds found in cannabis.
The other famous compound is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). THC is the compound that “gets you high” when you smoke marijuana.
While CBD and THC are found in the same plant, only THC will get you high. Only THC is psychoactive. No matter how much CBD you consume, whether you ingest it or vape it, you won’t get high.
What’s the difference between cannabis, marijuana, and hemp?
Both hemp and marijuana are cannabis. Cannabis is the proper name for the plants. The difference is more about how these words are commonly used. People use marijuana to denote a cannabis plant that has a high enough THC level to have a psychoactive effect. Hemp is used to denote cannabis that has little or no THC.
Still, technically, all of these plants are cannabis.
When you see “Hemp CBD”, it tells you that there’s no THC in the product.
What CBD can do for your health?
This is the big question. In fact, it’s a source of a lot of debate and even some misconceptions.
CBD has been proven to help stop or reduce the effects of epilepsy. The FDA has approved a CBD compound for use as an epilepsy controller. It reduces the incidence of seizures significantly with many fewer side effects than existing pharmaceuticals. 1
CBD has been shown in multiple studies to help relieve pain. It reduces inflammation, lessening the effects of the neurotransmitters the send pain signals to the brain. 2
Many people with anxiety and depression find the CBD reduces the effects of these common and devastating psychological disorders. Best of all, there are few of the side effects that many psych meds cause in patients. 3,4
Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and other treatments often experience nausea, vomiting, and pain. There are several studies that show that CBD oil can reduce these effects. There are drugs to treat these symptoms, but they are sometimes ineffective or have significant side effects. CBD has been shown to provide relief without the side effects. 5
CBD’s anti-inflammatory powers can help relieve the effects and appearance of acne. By applying it directly to the skin, it helps to reduce the redness, swelling and pain that are associated with severe acne outbreaks.6
Combined with THC in a medication called Sativex, CBD has been shown to reduce the muscle spasms of patients with Multiple Sclerosis significantly. This drug is one of the few approved uses of THC, with or without CBD, by the FDA. 7
600 mg of CBD oil was shown to reduce resting blood pressure in men during a study. These same subjects were given stress tests designed to raise their blood pressure, but it went up by a smaller percentage than did those taking a placebo. 8
Because CBD has such powerful anti-inflammatory properties, there have been studies showing that it might benefit heart disease, which is often related to inflammation in the heart. 9
What CBD might do for your health?
There are hundreds of studies being conducted. Because CBD was swept up in the anti-marijuana laws, many of these studies are new and haven’t yielded definitive results yet, but there is some promise that CBD might treat other conditions as well.
Tumor reduction - In vitro and animal studies have shown that CBD can shrink the size of tumors. 10
Diabetes - CBD, when given to diabetic mice, showed a reduced incidence of the disease by 56%. 11
Substance abuse treatment - There is evidence that CBD can interrupt the reward circuits of drug addicts. It’s these circuits that cause relapse in addicts to all drugs. 12
Psychotic disorders - CBD shows promise for reducing schizophrenic symptoms in people with schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. It seems to do this without the powerful sedative effects of other drugs. 12
Side effects of CBD
The most common side effects are diarrhea, fatigue, and changes in appetite and weight. These were usually minor and don’t last long. 13
There are some drugs that you shouldn’t take CBD with. Speak to your doctor if you're taking any prescription medications. CBD has a similar effect as grapefruit juice on some drugs. 13
Capsules, Liquid, Vape
There are multiple ways to ingest CBD oil, each is good for certain things.
Capsules and liquid - Capsules contain liquid. This is usually because many people don’t enjoy the taste of CBD oil. With capsules, you can get a very precise dose. The liquid, using an eyedropper to dispense the liquid, is a little less precise. In both cases, the CBD oil is ingested and digested. This can help reduce its efficacy and take time to enter the body. These are effective methods for large doses of CBD.
Vape pens - Vaping is perfect for getting CBD into your system instantly. Disorders like pain and anxiety can be treated very well with a CBD vape. A couple of puffs deliver a smaller quantity of CBD, but it’s delivered into the bloodstream instantly. Not ideal for a large dose, it’s a great way to get CBD “on the fly.”
Is CBD right for you?
Because there are few side effects, trying CBD is generally safe. Unless you’re taking medicine or you have a specific disorder, you can usually try CBD for things like pain and anxiety safely.
If you have cancer, diabetes, or any other significant illness, please speak to your doctor before taking CBD in any quantity.
If you simply want to try it to see if it can help you feel re-energized, more relaxed, or healthier, vaping is a great way to get small doses immediately.
