HEARD ABOUT CBD PRODUCTS, BUT NOT SURE WHAT THEY ARE?
There’s no doubt that CBD oil is gaining popularity. But before you become a consumer of CBD products, wouldn’t you like to become well-informed?
Cannabinoids are the primary chemical compounds found in hemp and all cannabis plants. The two you have probably heard of are CBD and THC. CBD is the best known non-psychoactive cannabinoid, and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the only psychoactive cannabinoid. Hemp oil contains only trace amounts of THC (less than .3%).
Functional Remedies’ CBD oils and CBD tinctures are made with whole plant hemp extracts that contain ALL of the beneficial cannabinoids and elements of the hemp plant, not just isolated CBD.
By botanical standards, marijuana and hemp are both cannabis. In common terms, marijuana is the named used often for cannabis strains with THC.
Strains without THC are informally classified as hemp.
What is CBD oil made from? Hemp, sometimes called industrial hemp.
This is why CBD oil is also known as hemp oil.
CBD oil is usually made using the whole plant.
High quality CBD oil is made from the flowers of the hemp plant, not the seeds. Do not confuse Hemp Seed Oil with CBD Oil.
What does CBD do?
CBD interacts with the body through the endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS) or endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system regulates the body’s normal homeostasis, or general state of balance. This can maintain a healthy mood, sleep habit, appetite, and pain response.
Pain relief is probably the most common use of CBD or hemp oil. There’s no shortage of anecdotal evidence that CBD oil is good for quick and sustainable pain relief without the risk of addiction common to traditional pharmaceutical option.
Treating anxiety with CBD oil has gained popularity. Compared to traditional pharmaceutical remedies, CBD has few, if any, negative side effects.What is CBD oil doing to brain receptors to remove or diminish debilitating anxiety?
In a 2010 clinical study, participants with social anxiety disorder (SAD) had their baseline anxiety levels measured by subjective tests as well as regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF). Some participants then received 400 mg of CBD. Others received a placebo in standard double-blind protocols.
The subjective and rCBF tests administer again, followed by another round of CBD or placebo.
In the end, researchers found that CBD significantly reduced subjective assessments of SAD. Plus, it had positive effects on activity in limbic and paralimbic areas of the brain, which are involved in regulating mood.
CBD Oil for Sleep
CBD oil can be an ideal remedy for temporary bouts of insomnia, especially those brought on by extended periods of emotional stress.
What Is CBD Oil Drug Testing?
Drug testing is a fact of life for people with certain jobs. Employers often want to ensure employees doing work that involves the public and/or dangerous equipment are not impaired.
There is no such thing as a standard workplace drug test. But it is uncommon for employers or other interested parties to test for CBD.
So-called marijuana testing is really a test for TCH. This is reasonable since TCH has psychoactive properties that can impair response time in some people.
As with any cannabis product, there is always a chance of triggering a positive drug test. Please talk to your employer or health care provider if this is a concern.
How much CBD oil should I take?
Just like your method of ingestion, your optimal dose of CBD oil or CBD tincture is highly personal. We are not able to make exact dosing recommendations as per FDA regulations, but we generally suggest that you start small, and work your way up to the dose that feels right, especially if you have little experience with hemp oil.
How long will it take for me to “feel” it working?
Some people feel results from whole plant CBD oil immediately. However, many find that it takes 3-4 weeks of consistent use before they begin to feel the beneficial effects of the oil.
If you’re thinking of using CBD oil or hemp oil to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, get a good night of sleep, or improve your health in a variety of other ways, you aren’t alone.
