CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring chemical compound that is extracted from the marijuana plant and has been used for centuries for its calming and healing properties. Studies have shown it is a viable option for relieving pain and inflammation.
There currently isn’t enough research about the safety of using CBD while pregnant or nursing and what long and short-term effects it may have on a child. It is therefore not recommended for use in pregnant or nursing women.
Research is still ongoing, however current findings have shown that CBD can be highly effective therapeutic option for dealing with chronic stress and anxiety. CBD induces a calming effect on both mental and physiological process of the body and can ease feelings of worry and tension.
Using CBD oil can promote feelings of mental and physical relaxation. It can reduce the symptoms of stress (such as increased heart rate and high blood pressure), ease panic attacks and help combat insomnia, leading to a better night’s rest.
While using CBD can lead to feelings of increased relaxation, it will not cause any feelings of drowsiness. CBD oil increases serotonin levels in the brain and can actually help you to feel happier and more productive, without sleepiness.
This depends, as CBD has been found to boost appetite, but not to the same effect as THC. THC is the chemical found in marijuana that is responsible for inducing a hunger effect when it is ingested. CBD does not cause this same effect and therefore will not lead to feelings of hunger or “the munchies” when it is used.
Yes. Taking CBD oil along with other medications may affect the efficacy of those drugs or may cause a severe interaction to occur. Before mixing any medications with CBD oil, speak to your doctor or pharmacist first to ensure that it is safe.
Yes. These products are popular among those who wish to experience the euphoric effects of THC but don’t want to feel certain negative effects sometimes caused by this chemical. Combining CBD will help to reduce feelings of anxiety, hunger, and sedation that can directly result from THC consumption.
CBD does not contain any active properties which produce psychoactive effects, therefore it will not get you high. Although it is derived from the cannabis plant, CBD does not contain the same chemicals as THC, which is the substance that is best known for causing feelings of euphoria.
CBD has a long list of benefits, including reduced anxiety, improved mood, and decreased pain. It can help with headaches, stress and sleep. Plus it has very few side effects, making it a safer alternative than many over-the-counter or prescription drugs.
CBN stands for cannabinol and is a chemical that is derived from the cannabis plant. It forms when THC ages and begins to oxidize. It has minimal psychoactive properties but is often used effectively as a sleep aid or sedative.
CBD can be consumed by way of smoking, vaping,as an edible, or sublingually (under the tongue) as an oil, tincture, or lozenge. CBD can also be applied topically as a lotion, cream, salve, or transdermal patch.
The amount of CBD that you take will depend on your individual needs and how your body responds to the drug. Most people start with a smaller dose of approximately 5mg and slowly work up from there until the desired effect is reached.
The length of time that CBD stays in your system will depend on your body and how quickly it metabolizes the drug. Studies show that CBD usually lasts 2-5 days; however, for some, this length of time could be shorter or longer.
Some CBD products contain a small amount of THC, which remains in the product after the extraction process. This amount of THC is not enough to have any physiological effect; however, it may be enough to show a positive result on some drug tests.
