CBD is an abbreviation for Cannabidiol, a cannabinoid found in Cannabis. CBD is not a psychoactive drug and you will not become high or stone. Various studies and clinical trials have been conducted on the effect of CBD on various diseases. CBD has no side effects and does not pose a risk of dependence.
CBD and THC are the most known and common cannabinoids in the Cannabis plant. Both have medicinal values however THC is banned in many countries, while CBD is not. CBD is also present in industrial hemp. THC is a psychoactive drug, CBD is not.
The effect of CBD
Numerous studies have been conducted on CBD, and many of them have been conducted in the laboratory, but not yet on large groups of people. Some studies have also been done on animals. The studies are promising, but much more research is needed on the effect of the CBD. There are, however, various reliable sources that give positive feedback on the effect of CBD.
We always recommend reading the product label and description on the respective website. The product information found there is the most up-to-date information. CBD is a relatively new product, for which too few clinical studies have been done, which does not make it a drug but a dietary supplement. Due to this lack of studies, manufacturers cannot advance medical claims, and opinions on its use are limited.
General tips for using CBD
- Start with a low dose, such as 1 drop of CBD oil or 1 capsule, and increase gradually until the desired effect is achieved. Do not exceed the maximum recommended by the manufacturer.
- The short-term effect of CBD oil is usually felt within 15 minutes, and the effect lasts for several hours. Think about the relaxing effect. For the long-term effects of CBD, it should be used for a minimum of a few weeks before you can feel the benefits.
- When using CBD oil it is advised to always shake the oil before consumption. Then put the drops under the tongue or in a teaspoon. The taste of CBD oil is different depending on the product, but plant extracts have a bitter taste that is sometimes found in oils. If the taste is not tolerated, the CBD oil can also be placed on a piece of bread and consumed in this way. As CBD is now absorbed by the stomach and intestines, it will take a little longer before the CBD oil is effective, and the effects are noticeable.
- When used normally, CBD has no side effects, is not addictive and has no psychotropic effect.
The dosage of CBD
It is difficult to indicate the right dose of CBD. This may vary depending on the person and the pathology. This is why we always recommend starting with a low dose and increasing the dose until the desired effect is achieved.
With CBD oil, you can start with 1 drop three times a day. If you feel a little effect, you can increase the dose to 2 drops per dose. You can increase the dose to the maximum indicated on the product label itself.
Current CBD studies recommend a dose of 1mg to 800mg of CBD per day.
Instructions for use for CBD oil products
An overdose of CBD is very unlikely. A study of Current Drug Safety indicates that a dose of 1500 mg per day has no negative effects on humans or animals. Even at high doses, CBD has no influence on physiological parameters (heart rate, blood pressure, and body temperature). Chronic use of high doses of CBD (up to 1500 mg) is, according to what is said, also well supported by humans.
Always look at the product label for the expiry date. CBD products should be kept in a cool, dry, dark place. Generally, the oil can be kept at least 1 year in a closed package.
CBD is quickly becoming a popular supplement for those seeking relief from many disorders. It can be a good resource for those seeking natural and non-psychoactive relief. You just have to take the time to understand the best form of consumption and the right dosage to maximize the effects.
Some people will need only small doses, while others will still have no effect after a high dose. Everyone also has different reactions to each of the methods of consumption. It may take time to find the right dose and method of consuming CBD products to get relief, so be patient. Effect of CBD oil may be felt immediately; while in several cases it requires build-up, especially for the relief of epilepsy.
