What is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a natural cannabinoid contained in the plants of the cannabis family. Both hemp and marijuana belong to this same cannabis plant family, but they are two distinct plants (technically, not taxonomically) with different CBD content.

Marijuana contains both CBD and quite a bit of THC. THC is an illegal substance in most states and countries as it causes an addictive high and has a potent psychoactive effect.

Industrial hemp, on the other hand, contains very little THC and a lot more CBD.

Some want the combined effects of THC and CBD to address their symptoms and prefer high-CBD marijuana strains, while others who only want to enjoy the non-psychoactive CBD prefer high-CBD hemp oil.

Top 5 Amazing CBD Oil Effects

CBD has many of the same beneficial effects as THC.

Studies on CBD and THC are quite recent, but there is already enough evidence to support that CBD may:

  1. Improve appetite
  2. Relieve pain
  3. Reduce inflammation
  4. Reduce stress and improve mood
  5. Improve sleep

How Long Does CBD Take to Work?

CBD can generally take from a few minutes to a couple of hours to work properly, depending on the serving size, the method of consumption and the symptom you want to alleviate.

Vaping your hemp oil is one of the most effective ways of absorption, and you can try it easily and safely with our vape starter kit.

Using your CBD sublingually (for example, with our CBD oil herbal spray) is the second most effective method of absorption, giving you relief within minutes.

Applying CBD products topically leads to relatively slow and uniform absorption, ensuring that the skin remains moisturized and receives CBD’s benefits over a longer period of time.

Eating a delicious product like our CBD chocolate (or the hempy tasting high-CBD hemp oil) takes longer, from 20 minutes to an hour, depending on how much you ate before and how long ago your last meal was. It’s best to use CBD oil on an empty stomach.

If you combine your CBD oil with a drink or food, you have to wait longer, but you are also safe from side effects like headaches and dysphoria.

The potency depends on the serving size and on what you want to alleviate.

Don’t expect CBD to last as long as it does for others. Everybody is different and reacts differently to CBD oil. The only way to know for sure is to try.

Remember: always start with a low serving size, and work yourself up slowly. Let your physician know before you start using CBD, especially if you suffer from chronic illness and take medication.

How Much CBD Do You Need?

You’ll need a different serving size depending on your symptoms. Also, each body reacts differently to CBD. Some people are extremely sensitive and need very little while, in rare cases, some don’t feel effects even after several serving sizes. Each person is unique, and you need to find your own sweet spot.

Still, there are some average numbers that can help you determine how much CBD you might want to start with.

Serving size is best measured as pure mgs of CBD because each product has a different concentration.

Start really low (2-3 mg) and work yourself up to the recommended serving size. As soon as your symptoms are gone, you need to stop increasing the serving size; if your symptoms worsen, discontinue use or lower your serving size.

And as usual, if you have a serious health issue, we urge you to see your doctor in order to get recommendations.

Where Can You Find High-Quality CBD Oil?

When you buy CBD online, stick to vendors who invest in third-party lab tests and provide only reputable, US-manufactured products.

Hemp oil is expensive to produce at the highest purity and quality standards, so you should steer clear of any suspiciously cheap offer or product, as it may contain substances you don’t want to ingest.

    I just had delivered one small bottle of CBD oil and I tried it with no effect, then I tried a full squirt from the dropper. No effect, my question is do I need to upgrade the CBD to a higher strength? PS I was waiting a very long time for the package to be delivered, it was not packed very well. I would not mind paying a little extra for a more secure package!

    My partner has had PTSD and chronic jaw pain for over ten years. 40 mg of CBD caps daily, no headaches, PTSD managed, no jaw pain, no nausea. That happened the very next morning. He still marvels after three weeks, at the transformation. I notice how it takes down inflammation in myself, joints are almost normal A friend of mine has been almost cleared of Rheumatoid arthritis. So far it is all good. I had quite the spiritual/energetic experience when I started taking it. The marijuana is very feminine in nature, caring, loving and exacting in that she knows what to do and where to go. It has made my vitamin and herbals work better and take less of. Some I have stopped, no need.

  • There are currently no side effects reported to the use of CBD

  • unfortunately, because it is currently being studied by the FDA we can’t claim CBD or any of our products would be helpful for a particular condition, disorder or symptom, we’ll have to wait until studies are completed and results are shared before we can do so.

    According to customers’ feedback the amount of CBD to serve changes depending on the user. We suggest to start taking the product in low amounts, 2 to 3 mg a day would be perfect, you can use that amount once a day for about a week, after that and depending on how you feel you can double the amount you serve and try for an additional week, the idea is to repeat this process until you find the right amount of CBD to use.
