What is CBD?2018-03-27T17:09:05+00:00

It’s not a stretch to say that CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the most exciting and promising compounds currently undergoing rigorous medical and scientific research. CBD has made headlines in recent years for some pretty stunning results — including a study in the New England Journal of Medicine that showed it to reduce seizures in children with epilepsy.

Still, misinformation and confusion about CBD abounds due to the relatively recent emergence and widespread awareness of this incredible compound. Let’s take a deep dive into what cannabidiol (CBD) is, and exactly what it does — and doesn’t — do.

 

What is Vaping?2018-03-27T17:59:46+00:00

Vaping is the inhalation and exhalation of vapour when using an electronic cigarette / vaporiser. It is the evolution of smoking, replacing many negative associations with the old habit of tobacco combustion. The technical term for vapour is called liquid aerosol, it can be compared to how a kettle heats up liquid like water and produces a steam vapour.

Vaping works when the e-liquid is heated creating a vapour that is then inhaled and exhaled. E-Liquids come in many different strengths of nicotine and even come in nicotine free. Vaping is seen as a healthier alternative to smoking.

Is Hemp the same as Marijuana?2018-03-27T17:21:55+00:00

No. Even though they are both Cannabis sativa L., Industrial hemp is the non-psychoactive, low-THC, oilseed and fiber varieties of the Cannabis sativa plant. Hemp has absolutely no use as a recreational drug.

What does CBD stand for?2018-03-27T17:05:40+00:00

CBD is simply short for “cannabidiol”, the second-most abundant cannabinoid molecule produced by the cannabis or hemp plant. The most abundant molecule, of course, being THC: the psychoactive chemical famous for making users feel “high” (CBD does not have this effect). Keep in mind that your body already has an endocannabinoid system, an extremely important molecular system that your body uses to regulate and perform various critical functions. CBD binds to receptors in this system; our bodies were designed to interface with cannabinoids from the very beginning — we even naturally produce them!

How do Vaping Devices Work?2018-03-27T17:55:35+00:00

All vaping devices work in the same fundamental way:  A battery powers a coil heating element that turns a liquid solution known as e-liquid into an aerosol. Different devices apply these principals in differing ways – and it’s surprising just how many variants have been created from such a simple concept!

Where in the world is industrial hemp grown?2018-03-27T17:23:15+00:00

Hemp is grown in … Australia, Austria, Canada, Chile, China, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine.

How does CBD Work?2018-03-27T17:05:51+00:00

As we stated earlier, your body already has a wildly complex endocannabinoid system that affects several different areas and functions. That system is rife with “receptors,” sites that await cannabinoid molecules presence. When the cannabinoid nears, the receptor will bind it to itself, creating a sophisticated chemical interaction that modern science is only just beginning to scratch the surface of understanding.

Unlike its sister molecule THC, CBD does not make you feel high — but don’t think that a lack of psychoactive or intoxicating effect means that nothing is occurring. On the contrary, it’s very clear that there are many chemical responses that occur when CBD binds to those cannabinoid receptors. That being said, the endocannabinoid system is ubiquitous in the human body, affecting nearly all major functions in some way (especially homeostatic regulation). Because of this, it’s quite a task to discern everything that CBD does, exactly, when the binding occurs. That’s where the research is at right now: trying to solve that very mystery.

Can I Vape Anywhere?2018-03-27T17:57:29+00:00

The short answer here is no. Sadly, many Cities and Counties have chosen to prohibit vaping in public places, shoehorning vaping into smokefree legislation. Thankfully, vaping is still permitted in public places in the majority of the US, but this is continuously under threat.

Nevertheless, it’s wise not to assume that you can vape anywhere just because it’s not illegal. Premises owners are entitled to prohibit vaping on their property, and many do.

How can hemp be used as a food?2018-03-27T17:24:29+00:00

Hemp seed is a highly nutritious source of protein and essential fatty oils. Many populations have grown hemp for its seed — most of them eat it as `gruel’ which is a lot like oatmeal. The leaves can be used as roughage. Hemp seeds do not contain any THC and they do not get you `high.’

Hemp seed protein closely resembles protein as it is found in the human blood. It is fantastically easy to digest, and many patients who have trouble digesting food are given hemp seed by their doctors. Hemp seed was once called `edestine’ and was used by scientists as the model for vegetable protein.

Hemp seed oil provides the human body with essential fatty acids. Hemp seed is the only seed which contains these oils with almost no saturated fat. As a supplement to the diet, these oils can reduce the risk of heart disease. It is because of these oils that birds will live much longer if they eat hemp seed.

With hemp seed, a vegan or vegetarian can survive and eat virtually no saturated fats. One handful of hemp seed per day will supply adequate protein and essential oils for an adult.

What is CBD used For?2018-03-27T17:06:02+00:00

Before we discuss some uses for CBD oil, we should clear up one area of confusion: what is CBD hemp oil, exactly? CBD hemp oil is simply the natural extracted oil product of the hemp plant, a non-psychoactive species of the cannabis family. Although CBD oil can also be derived from the psychoactive species as well, those oils can end up containing higher traces of THC, which is not ideal for all CBD users.

Humans’ endocannabinoid system, which CBD directly affects, has a profound influence on a myriad of different areas and functions in our body. Therefore, CBD oil is being self-administered as a supplement by people all over the world to combat conditions such as anxiety, chronic pain, depression, PTSD, epilepsy, arthritis, and even Parkinson’s Disease.

The fact is that new medical research is being performed on CBD every single day, and we don’t quite know definitively how it works — but the potential is astounding. The financial sector is certainly betting on CBD hemp oil’s continued popularity: a recent Forbes article estimated that the CBD market will grow 700% by 2020.

Hemp Seed vs Hemp Oil2018-03-27T17:35:38+00:00

Hemp oil or Cannabis oil is a cannabis extracted medicine, this concentrated formulation of cannabis is ingested orally. By eating large quantities of the oil over a three to six month period, nearly any disease you can imagine has claimed to have been cured or completely controlled. This is believed to be possible because cannabis works fundamentally through the endocannabinoid system, the super regulatory system of our bodies that maintains homeostasis in the other systems.

Hemp Seed Oil has long been recognized as one of the most versatile and beneficial substances known to man. Derived from hemp seeds, it has been regarded as a superfood due to its high essential fatty acid content and the unique ratio of omega3 to omega6 and gamma linolenic acid (GLA) – 2:5:1. Hemp seed oil, is known to contain up to 5% of pure GLA, a much higher concentration than any other plant, even higher than spirulina.

For thousands of years, the hemp plant has been used in elixirs and medicinal teas because of its healing properties and now medical science is zeroing in on the properties of its active substances.

Cannabis oil and hemp seed oil come from very different strains of the cannabis family. Think different breeds of dogs, cats or horses. Cannabis Oil is made from leaves/flowers of cannabis plants (Cannabis Sativa = Marijuana varieties) that have been breed by man for high levels of cannabinoids like THC and CBD. On the other hand hemp seed oil is made from crushing the seeds of a different variety of cannabis plants (Cannabis Sativa L. = Hemp) that have been breed for hemp seed oil which does not contain THC and is safe and nutritious for all to consume.

Is CBD Legal?2018-03-27T17:06:11+00:00

Yes — although CBD comes from the cannabis plant family like its intoxicating cousin compound THC, you will not feel a “high” or psychoactive effect from CBD. Although there are tiny trace amounts of THC in most CBD products, the amount is so low that it is functionally impossible to get intoxicated from it. Therefore, CBD is legal to purchase and own across the United States. You can shop for CBD products with full confidence (and at CBDfx, we provide unique batch lab reports so that you can see exactly what you’re putting in your body, and in what proportion).

CBD for Vape2018-04-03T19:07:39+00:00

CBD vape oil, more appropriately called CBD e-liquid or CBD vape juice is specifically made to be vaped. They are typically not extracted from cannabis, but rather industrial hemp which is completely legal in the United States, as long as it contains less than 0.3% THC.

Does CBD have Side Effects?2018-03-27T17:06:23+00:00

By all measurable results, CBD is extremely safe for humans to ingest. In fact, clinical trial data published by the journal Current Pharmaceutical Design showed that oral administration of CBD is safe even in extremely high doses.

That being said, some users do report mild side effects when using CBD. CBD will affect everyone differently, and you should always consult with your physician before beginning to supplement with CBD. Even when you do begin dosing with CBD, you should start with a small dose and work your way up until you understand how CBD affects your unique physiology.

Mild side effects from CBD are usually reported by users who took relatively high doses. Drowsiness or grogginess was the most common of these side effects. More than this, however, the most important consideration before taking CBD is to determine how it interacts with any drugs you are currently on. CBD may interfere with the way your drug regimen is working, so it’s critical that you have a conversation with your doctor to confirm that it’s appropriate to begin using CBD on your own.

Will I get Buzzed with CBD?2018-03-27T17:06:36+00:00

No — CBD will not get you “high” like the other famous chemical compound found in cannabis (THC). However, just because it doesn’t give you a “body buzz” or intoxicating high does not mean that you won’t feel an effect from taking CBD. The most commonly reported effects include a general sense of well-being or anxiety reduction, or a calm clarity of focus. Regardless, there is no intoxication involved. The World Health Organization has determined that there is no potential for abuse in terms of CBD usage.

Is CBD the same as Medical Marijuana?2018-03-27T17:06:46+00:00

No. The industrial hemp used to produce CBD is a variety of cannabis that does not contain the psychoactive properties of THC. Industrial hemp, including that used to produce CBD, is essentially a cousin.

Can I Buy CBD where I live?2018-03-27T17:06:55+00:00

At the right dosage, it typically takes between 20 and 30 minutes for the CBD effects to be noticeable. As CBD has no psychoactive component, there is no ‘high’. You may experience a reduction in pain, reduced tremor, a sense of calm. It does depend on why you are taking CBD oil and whether you are taking enough to combat the symptoms you have and whether CBD has an effect on you.

What are Tintures?2018-03-27T17:07:17+00:00

Tincture” is substance is suspended or dissolved in another liquid. Usually alcohol but many volatile oils are also used. Generally alcohol is used to make CBD Tinctures in order to reduce viscosity. Viscosity reduction helps absorption of CBD into the body. It also allows a more concise dosage as CBD oil is very viscous/thick and are hard to portion into doses.

Will I fail a Drug Test if I use CBD?2018-04-03T18:46:24+00:00

Most drug tests in the workplace search for the psychoactive compound THC, not Cannabidiol (CBD) or other compounds found naturally in hemp. However, lab results show that hemp oil can contain trace amounts of THC. Although only a very small amount is present, it could cause a positive result when screening urine and blood specimens. If you are subject to any form of drug testing or screening, we (and the US Armed Services) recommend that you do not ingest this product. Please consult with your healthcare practitioner and drug screening/testing company or employer before consuming these products.
