Is CBD different than THC?2018-06-25T22:53:09+00:00

CBD (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two most prominent and abundant of the many cannabinoids found in cannabis. Cannabis is the plant genus of both marijuana and hemp and carries over 100 different cannabinoids. While both cannabinoids have been proven to interact with the body through the endocannabinoid system (the vital system responsible for regulating functions), CBD differs from THC in a number of ways including atomic structure, legal status, side effects and its ability to create a psychoactive “high” effect.

Does CBD Get you High?2018-06-25T22:52:13+00:00

No. CBD does not get you high. This is huge misconception which is largely due to the chemical compound’s relation to THC. CBD oil is a completely all-natural substance that is derived from two
sources: industrial hemp plant and marijuana. CBD, unlike THC, does not contain the psychoactive properties that produce “high” sensations. This means that CBD will not affect your sensory of
perception, behavior, consciousness and awareness. To better understand the effects of CBD and its reaction to the body, click here!

How do I take CBD?2018-06-25T22:51:13+00:00

CBD is a very safe substance. Taken alone, the top CBD testing lab in the country has stated that there is no lethal dosage for any cannabis or hemp plant. However, CBD is known to alter the way our body metabolizes some common prescription medications including pain killers, blood thinner statins and insulin. This occurs because cannabidiol inhibits the cytochrome 450. Cytochrome 450 is a family of liver enzymes that metabolize many of the drugs we consume. CBD is also metabolized by cytochrome 450. This can mean that CBD will slow the ability of cytochrome 450 to metabolize these drugs, keeping them in your system longer. This competition will increase with cannabidiol dosage. With a very low dose, the CBD may have no noticeable effect. There have been few studies on the interaction of cannabidiol and cytochrome 450, but please note that the higher the dose of CBD greater a chance for an interaction.

How much CBD do I take?2018-06-25T22:50:19+00:00

CBD or cannabinoids are considered dietary supplements by the FDA. This means we cannot give specific dosage recommendations.

An effective dosage can range from as little as a few milligrams ofCBD-enriched hemp oil to a gram or more. Begin with a small dose of CBD and take the same dose over the course of a few days. Gradually increase the dose over a period of time. It is better to take small doses throughout the day instead of taking large doses all at once. Easy does it.

The Mayo Clinic is one of the few medical laboratories that has pbliched a guide on specific ailments suggested, based on observations their opinions on CBD consumption. The guide is found here.

Does CBD help with pain?2018-06-25T22:47:54+00:00

There are over 100 different cannabinoids from cannabis with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) being the most well-known and studied. Like all cannabinoids, both CBD and THC must be heated in order to convert the cannabinoid acid into an active cannabinoid (receptors in the brain that take part in a variety of physiological processes including pain sensation). When this process occurs, the two cannabinoids are able to mimic the body’s cannabinoids and interact with the endocannbinoid system (the system responsible for regulating a variety of functions including pain, appetite, mood and memory). However, unlike THC, CBD can alleviate pain without inducing a “high” or psychoactive side effects. Click here to learn more about CBD and its ability to relieve pain.
