CBD is an abbreviation of cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is one of the dozens of cannabinoids that occur in the cannabis plant.
A cannabinoid is a chemical compound that acts on cannabinoid receptors in cells that alter the release of neurotransmitters in the brain. Every person has a body's endocannabinoid system.
We have cannabinoid receptors built into our body. Getting CBD into your body can normalize functional systems such as cell communication and immune functions. This means that the systems that make up your body, from cells to organs, will communicate better with each other.
No, cannabidiol never gets you stoned or high. The psychoactive effect is produced by another cannabinoid, THC. Cannabidiol even counters the psychoactive effect! In fact, if you receive low levels of THC and high values of CBD you will not experience psychoactive effects because of the THC.
CBD oil is an oil to which hemp extract is added, in the hemp extract are often high values of CBD and other cannabinoids. This extract of the hemp plant is therefore diluted with other oil.
You can use CBD Oil by dripping a few drops, often 3 to 5, under the tongue. After dripping, let the drops of CBD Oil lie under the tongue for about half a minute before you swallow them. This promotes the intake of the CBD. Do this after a meal.
The most common types of CBD Oil are: Raw CBD Oil, Full-Spectrum CBD Oil and Pure CBD Oil. There are also different oils with which the CBD is mixed as a carrier. This is done mostly with hemp seed oil, but sometimes also with olive oil and even with argan oil!
Raw CBD Oil is the least refined CBD Oil. This oil is made with hemp extract from the cold pressing of hemp. This type of CBD Oil often contains plant remains and is dark in color. It has the widest range of cannabinoids and terpenes. But the taste is unpleasant.
Full-Spectrum CBD Oil is a slightly further refined CBD Oil. The hemp extract has been purified. The plant remains have been removed. What remains is a beautiful transparent extract that often has a red color. Some of the cannabinoids and terpenes are lost in this process. Plant remains also contribute to this. But the taste is much more pleasant than with the Raw CBD variant.
Pure CBD Oil is the most refined CBD Oil. The hemp extract is stripped of all plant remains, other cannabinoids, terpenes and oil residues. Only CBD Crystal remains. This crystal is then added to oil to make the CBD Oil. This oil has the most pleasant taste, but only contains CBD.
Cannabis is a collective name for all cannabis plant species. But there is a difference in the types of cannabis.
Hemp is the industrial cannabis plant. The hemp plant is characterized by a very low THC value. This plant can be legally cultivated in many countries including the Netherlands and even China. Provided that the species contains less than 0.2% THC
Weed is the name for the female cannabis plant with a high THC content. No CBD oil, but weed oil is made from this plant. Weed oil is often made by people at home with weed they buy in coffee shops. This oil is illegal and a psychoactive effect of this oil can not be ruled out.
Weed oil contains THC. And THC is mostly consumed by recreational users. But like all other cannabinoids, THC also has an effect on the human body in addition to psychoactive effects. For example, THC promotes appetite which could be beneficial for people undergoing chemotherapy.
Yes, CBD is legal. All cannabinoids except THC are legal. THC has a psychoactive effect. The other cannabinoids don't
Yes, CBD Oil is legal. Provided the oil contains less than 0.05% THC. A nice fact is that sometimes the hemp extract with which the CBD Oil is produced contains more than 0.05% CBD. The allowed THC value is often higher in other countries. For this reason, even Dutch hemp is often processed abroad and later the CBD Oil is imported as an end-product!
