What is CBD Oil? Will it make me “high”?Cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil is made from the hemp plant which is high in CBD and low in THC, unlike medical marijuana products that come from the hemp plant. Containing only trace amounts of THC, the extracted CBD oil will not cause the psychoactive effects similar to those of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), present in marijuana. This makes it less controversial alternative. Cannabidiol is just one of over 85 cannabinoids presently identified in the cannabis plant. It is the most prominent cannabinoid found in the hemp plant, and is the second most abundant cannabinoid in marijuana, after THC.
How much CBD oil should you take?
The amount of CBD per individual will vary. We recommend starting with 20mg twice per day, and increasing from there based on results.
Can you take too much CBD oil?Yes. Start with 20-40mg and please consult with your doctor or a natural path physician if you are concerned with the amount you should be consuming.
How long does it take for a result?
Taking CBD orally takes longer (20-30 mins) to absorb than other methods like vaping which is almost instant. When eating CBD products, some of this hydrophobic (non-water soluble) organic compound tends to diffuse out of the blood and into the fatty tissues. CBD also needs to pass through the gut and liver which also reduce it’s bioavailability in the body. Vaping allows for rapid and more abundant absorption into the blood stream via the lungs, however vaping is not for everyone.
