Hemp CBD is a lifestyle!

Jul 4, 2024

CBD (cannabidiol) is a magical ingredient from hemp, which has magical effects such as analgesia, anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, anti-epileptic, anti-tumor, sleep aid, nerve protection, and anti-addiction. Today, I will introduce to you the classification and taking methods of CBD oil on the market.

1. Classification of CBD oil💧

Pure CBD Oil

Pure CBD oil is obtained by separating and purifying CBD crystals from hemp flowers and leaves. The purity of CBD can be as high as 99.9%, and then dissolving CBD crystals in oil solvents. Pure CBD oil contains only CBD and does not contain any other ingredients in industrial hemp. Since CBD crystals are colorless and odorless, the color and taste of pure CBD oil depends on the solvents and other additives used. Commonly used solvents are coconut oil (MCT oil), olive oil, hemp oil and VG/PG.

Pure CBD oil = CBD crystal + Oil; Oil = MTC oil / olive oil / coconut oil, etc.

Full Spectrum CBD Oil

Full spectrum CBD oil. It contains all the original substances of the hemp plant, in addition to CBD, such as other cannabinoids: CBN, CBG, CBL, CBCVA, terpenes and aromatic compounds. Full spectrum CBD oil is usually thicker, darker in color, and has the taste of hemp plants.

Full spectrum oil = industrial hemp flower and leaf extract + Oil

Broad Spectrum CBD Oil

Broad-spectrum oil is also an extract of hemp flowers and leaves, containing a range of cannabinoids and terpenes, but does not contain THC. If there is a third-party test report for the product, you can learn the detailed cannabinoid and terpene content from the report. This type of product has undergone additional processing to separate and remove as much THC as possible, while still retaining other cannabinoids and terpenes. There are also other products that are based on separated CBD and additional cannabinoids and terpenes are added. For example, CBD oil containing increased CBDA is known to have additional anti-inflammatory effects and is particularly suitable for controlling symptoms such as inflammation and chronic pain.

Broad spectrum oil = full spectrum oil - THC

☝2. Purity and Concentration of CBD Oil💧

🌿Purity: Most CBD oil products sold on the market are full-spectrum oils, and their purity is over 99%. Some are 100% CBD. As mentioned above, the concentration of full-spectrum oils will be higher.

🌿Concentration: CBD oil has various concentrations of CBD, ranging from 1% to 20%. The most common is 5%. Studies have shown that this is the most suitable dose for ordinary users. Concentrations below 5% have a greater dilution and the active substance is proportionally reduced. Higher concentrations such as 10%-20% are more suitable for people with more severe symptoms.

3. How to take CBD oil?💧

🎇Sublingual: #Tincture

Before use, shake the bottle before opening it and use a dropper to take out the oil; then drop the oil under the tongue and hold it for 1-2 minutes; (this allows the active substances to be absorbed into the blood through the mucous membrane at the bottom of the tongue).

CBD will become active after 15 minutes and reach its peak in about 60 minutes. You will feel the relief of symptoms during the process, but some diseases may require continuous use for several days to observe obvious changes.

🎇Note: Everyone has an endocannabinoid system. The cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 receptors in our body interact with CBD, thereby regulating the body's balance through the endocannabinoid system. However, everyone's physique is different, and the body's needs are different, so the need for supplementing phytocannabinoids is also different. This must be taken into account when determining the most effective dose of CBD oil for individuals.

🎇Intranasal use: Inhalation of CBD through e-cigarettes, vaporizers, etc. is a common way. This method of administration allows #CBD to enter the blood directly. After inhaling CBD, it can almost immediately enter the blood from the lungs, allowing it to spread and bind to appropriate endocannabinoid receptors throughout the body. Many research reports have shown that the bioavailability of CBD inhaled into the lungs is 34%-46%, and some reports even indicate that its utilization rate is as high as 56%. Therefore, at present, the method of pulmonary inhalation is the most effective way of intake.

4. Dosage of CBD Oil💧

When you decide to take CBD oil, in addition to choosing a good brand, the key point is to grasp the dosage that suits you. Most CBD products on the market do not specify the recommended dosage in the instructions. What is the reason?

This is because everyone has an endocannabinoid system. The cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 receptors in our body interact with CBD, thereby regulating the body's balance through the endocannabinoid system. However, everyone's physique is different, and the body's needs are also different, so the need for supplementing plant cannabinoids is also different.

When you start using CBD oil, in order to find the dosage that suits your situation, you can start with the minimum dose that can relieve symptoms. Try the initial dose for 3 days to give your body time to respond to the drug. Increase or decrease the dose accordingly over the next 3 days. If you feel any discomfort after taking it, immediately reduce the dose the next time you take CBD oil. If the physical sensation is not obvious, increase the dose accordingly. This is a self-test of the endocannabinoid system to determine the dose that is appropriate for your system's needs.

☝5. Metabolism of CBD Oil💧

Before CBD oil and the natural substances in it disappear from the body, it is usually metabolized first. Metabolism occurs mainly in the liver, but other organs such as the skin, gastrointestinal tract, lungs, brain, and kidneys may also be involved.

Metabolism occurs in two stages: In the reactions of Phase I, polar (water-soluble) substances are made through oxidation, reduction, or hydrolysis. In Phase II, conjugation occurs through acetylation or methylation. This increases the water solubility and polarity of the drug, and it can be easily excreted through the kidneys or bile.

6. Storage of CBD Oil💧

Many people put it in the refrigerator, which is not advisable, as it will make the oil rough. The correct way to store it is to store CBD oil products in a dark, dry place at room temperature.

7. Does CBD oil have any side effects?💧

Most people tolerate CBD oil very well, with few side effects, and only some rare and unlikely side effects exist, such as dry mouth, diarrhea, loose stools, changes in appetite, fatigue, etc. Although CBD oil is non-toxic, overdose may occur when taking one or more other drugs at the same time. Studies have shown that CBD inhibits the P450 enzyme to metabolize drugs, prolongs the metabolism time of some drugs, and leads to excessive drug levels in the body, which may cause side effects.

CBD oil that does not contain THC or contains only trace amounts (THC < 0.3%) poses the least risk to users, but it is not 100%, and some people should also pay attention. For ethical reasons, testing of the safety of CBD oil around children and pregnant women is limited. Some current studies and facts show that CBD oil may be safe for children (used to treat a variety of difficult diseases such as childhood epilepsy), but it is not clear how CBD oil affects fetal growth, so it is recommended that pregnant women avoid using it.

The above is the explanation about CBD oil. CBD can be said to be a new lifestyle. The latest research shows that CBD will have a good effect in treating depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, relieving pain, various skin inflammations, #COVID-19 and delaying aging. It can be predicted that in the near future, CBD will be used in more fields and be recognized and chosen by more people.
