First time using cbd?
So you are interested in knowing the beneficial effects that CBD can have on your body and are you evaluating if it is worth trying to treat your conditions?
Well, we are going step by step so that you know exactly what this product consists of.
What is CBD?
CBD is the abbreviation for “cannabidiol”, a compound naturally present in the cannabis or hemp plant and that does not have the psychoactivity that other compounds from the same plant such as THC (or tetrahydrocannabinol) have.
However, cannabidiol does play an important role in the regulation of our endocannabinoid system, the internal system of the human body that produces its own cannabinoids such as anandamide.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD Oil is a tincture or dilution of CBD extract in an edible oil such as the olive oil that we use at Canalanza Laboratories.
We are the first European Laboratory to use 100% extra virgin olive oil as a master formula
Other oils that are usually used such as coconut oils or oil from the pressing of hemp seeds have great differences with olive oil such as absorption, the effective time of action in the body and the derived pains that these oils produce. burning, stomach pain and nausea.
The dissolution is done in an oil because the CBD extract is not soluble in water.
The way to use this tincture is extremely easy:
– Put a few drops under the tongue, wait less than a minute and swallow
– Ingesting a few drops directly or with some juice or tea.
The effects of the ingestion should begin to be noticeable several minutes later.
We will talk about the doses later.
How is CBD extract done?
The extraction of the CBd can be done in two ways:
– Alcoholic extraction
– CO2 extraction
Alcoholic extraction is based on dissolving CBD and cannabis terpenes in common ethyl alcohol. It is an easy way to extract it but it is associated with low quality CBD.
On the contrary, CO2 extraction consists of bringing CO2 to a special “supercritical” state where it behaves both as a gas and as a liquid and in this state it is very effective as a solvent.
It is then used to dissolve the chemical elements that make up cannabis such as CBD and sometimes the rest of the elements, giving rise to Full Spectrum CBD.
Full-Spectrum CBD Oil vs. CBD Isolate: Which One Should I Choose?
CBD Full Spectrum is a CBD extracted with the rest of terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins and minerals from the original plant and not isolated.
That is, it remains in the same proportion with respect to the rest of the components, so many studies have found that the effect it produces is greater.
This is known as “the entourage effect.”
It seems that cannabinoids, terpenes and the rest of the components amplify the effects of each other.
The CBD Isolate on the other hand is Cbd in 99% purity, without other cannabinoids or terpenes or flavonoids, only Cannabidiol.
This CBD isolate is characterized by:
- contains more CBD per dose
- totally free of THC
- More precise concentration control
- It lacks taste and odor so it can be easier to ingest
How can CBD Oil help me?
CBD oil is not a medicine but is considered a dietary supplement.
However, historically it has been used to treat numerous ailments, especially chronic ones.
So if you are taking any type of medication for these types of ailments, you should discuss with your doctor before starting to take CBD as it could have some type of interaction with your medications.
How much CBD should I take?
The answer to this question is: you will have to check it yourself.
What? You do not know the dose that I have to take?
Well no, there is no recommended dose based on the weight or strength of the oil.
CBD oil affects everyone differently.
Usually bottles of cbd oil come with a dropper so you can control the exact dose you will take.
The recommendation is that you start with a 10% oil and try one or two drops.
Then you can make adjustments such as increasing the number of drops you take or the concentration of the product you buy.
Why Does CBD Affect Everyone Differently?
As with any other component, our body responds in a unique way.
This has to do with our metabolism, tolerance, gender and other factors.
How to calculate CBd dosage?
You have to remember that there is no optimal dosage that suit everyone.
The best strategy is to start with one or two drops of a medium concentrate (20%) and evaluate the improvement obtained. With that information, we will be able to correct the dose or concentration.
- Size and weight:
- Condition you want to treat
- Chemistry of your body
- Power of the oil you want to buy
This are the other factors you sholud take into account
