Cannabidiol (CBD)

The arrival of whole plant hemp producing CBD oil as a legitimate therapeutic option has changed global perceptions about cannabis. Today, the key question is how to use cannabis and CBD oil for maximum therapeutic benefits. It’s no longer a question of whether cannabis and CBD oil have medical benefits. We are well beyond that point.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive component of cannabis known to have significant therapeutic properties. CBD oil is now widely used by reputable medical professionals to treat ailments such as anxiety, depression, pain management, PTSD, stress, antibiotic-resistant infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, arthritis and more. CBD naturally binds to receptors in the human body and taps into our biological and physiological functions. It has shown to have neuroprotective qualities as well.   

CBD Oil Tinctures

Tincture Delivery Method

There are multiple delivery methods of CBD to your body. One of the more popular deliver methods is taking CBD oil sublingually (under the tongue). CBD oil comes in a tincture with a dropper. The gentleman in this picture is placing the formula under his tongue with the dopper. It is always best to consult a physician prior to starting any CBD regiment. We recommend starting off with a smaller CBD serving size and working your way up to until a desired effect is achieved.

A CBD serving size can depend on a number of independent variables including age, body weight, and level of discomfort. Cannabis compounds have biphasic properties, which means that a low and high CBD serving size can produce opposite effects. A small CBD serving size tends to have a stimulating effect. A large CDB serving size tends to have a sedating effect.  

Other CBD Delivery Methods

Quality CBD Oil

Look for CBD-rich oils when you’re shopping for CBD. Read the label carefully. Most reputable hemp extract merchants and distributors have their CBD oil tested by a third-party lab. Lab testing results disclose the oils purity and potency levels. Lab results should be verified as being free of mold, bacteria, pesticides, solvent residues, and other contaminants. It is best to avoid products extracted with toxic solvents like BHO, propane, hexane or other hydrocarbons.

Always select products made with quality ingredients. Avoid products that contain fillers such as corn syrup, trans fats, GMOs, artificial additives, thinning agents or preservatives. CO2 extraction is one of the purest forms of separating the oil from the hemp plant. When you purchase CBD oil that has been CO2 extracted, you know it is a high quality product.
