CBD and CBD Oil – What You Should Know
What is CBD?
CBD from CBD oil stands for cannabidiol and is a cannabinoid. Cannabidiol is a naturally occurring chemical compound found in the hemp plant. There are 113 cannabinoids in the cannabis plant (cannabis sativa) that have yet to be discovered in any other plant. Cannabidiol occurs as a compound in the cannabis plant. Cannabidiol is not to be confused with the most well-known cannabinoid THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). Unlike THC, it isn’t a psychoactive substance and therefore doesn’t make you “high”. In fact, it is the main non-psychoactive substance found in the cannabis plant. Because of this, it is the focus of more and more research. Many studies confirm already what scientists have presumed for a long time – cannabidiol has huge potential to treat and improve various conditions and illnesses.
What is CBD oil?
As the name suggests, CBD oil is a common term for oils which predominantly contain cannabidiol, an active cannabis plant ingredient. CBD oil shouldn’t be confused with THC oil or CBN oil, other oils that are also derived from the cannabis plant. Extracting cannabidiols creates an oily substance which contains various cannabinoids in varying amounts. The type of plant, extraction method, storage, and source can affect the amount. When an oil contains predominantly Cannabidiol, it is termed CBD oil.
CBD oil is available in different concentrations and has various uses. So what should you be aware of when you buy cannabis oil? Typically, oils contain either pure CBD or a mixture of CBD and THC. Any oils containing THC are not legal in many countries as they have a narcotic effect. The legal limit in Europe stands at 0,2%, and at 0,3% in North America. Such small amounts of THC cannot make you ‘high’. When you buy cannabis oil through this website, you can be sure that the CBD oils are 100% lawful industrial CBD oils containing only ever trace amounts of THC, that are never higher than the legal limit. Our products are tested in a laboratory to ensure they contain under the legal limit. It is impossible to become high from our CBD oils and you are not breaking the law.
Cannabis Oil Is A Natural Product
Did you know that cannabis is actually a herb, just like mint, parsley, tarragon, oregano, and sage? However, unlike these herbs, you are not allowed to grow cannabis at home in the garden. This is because it contains THC, a psychoactive drug. Because psychoactive drugs can have a narcotic effect, they are illegal in many countries. Our cannabis oils do not contain high levels of THC. They are completely natural products produced in the most gentle way possible – free from alcohol and harsh substances.

What are the possible effects of CBD oil?
How Cannabidiol can work in the body
The human body is naturally able to produce its own cannabinoids called endocannabinoids. Some cannabinoids from the cannabis plant, including cannabidiol, are agonists. This means that they activate signaling in a particular cell by occupying a receptor (protein or protein complex). A non-endogenous substance, cannabidiol acts as a hormone or neurotransmitter in the body which mimics or replaces a certain messenger substance. Researchers studying cannabinoids discovered the endocannabinoid system in the human body.
What is a cannabinoid?
Don’t worry if you didn’t study biology or chemistry. Cannabinoids are easy to understand. They are simply active compounds (a substance formed of more than one chemical element) found within the cannabis plant. The discovery of cannabinoids in the cannabis plant led scientists to discover that our bodies create their own cannabinoids, called endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids make up the endocannabinoid system in our bodies.
The Endocannabinoid System
Researchers have since discovered which receptors cannabinoids affect. Receptors are organs or cells that react to something, such as light, and send a signal to a sensory nerve. Receptors CB1 and CB2 are the most reactive to cannabinoids. These receptors are found throughout the body, but especially in the brain, nervous system, organs, glands, digestive tract, skin, and tissues. Mostly, however, they are found in the brain. The CB1 receptor is associated with coordination and movement, pain, emotions and mood, thoughts, appetite, and memory, among other things. CB2 receptors, on the other hand, affect our immune system, inflammation, and pain.
It was previously thought that cannabidiol directly affects the CB2 receptors. However, recent findings suggest that it instead encourages the body to use more of its own cannabinoids. CB1 and CB2 receptors are called endocannabinoids – cannabinoids made by the body. Together they make up part of the endocannabinoid. This system, as well as CB1 and CB2 receptors, plays an important role in the nervous system of all humans and mammals. The system was named after the cannabis plant. The ECS in the body is now considered to be one of the most important physiological systems to maintain and achieve good health.
Using Cannabis Oil to Balance the Body
Balance in the body is incredibly important. If we are balanced, we are healthy and happy and we thrive. So how do we achieve this balance? The endocannabinoid system mentioned earlier, and its receptors in the brain, central and peripheral nervous system, organs, connective tissues, immune cells, glands, digestive tract, and even the skin play a large role in balancing the body. In medicine, this maintenance of balance is called homeostasis.
ECS receptors have a ‘wireless’ connection to the whole body and are constantly working to regulate and stabilize the body against external influences and fluctuations. The endogenous cannabinoid system thus helps the body to regulate a number of internal and physiological processes. Its four main tasks are neuroprotection (preventing nerve cells from dying), stress regeneration, balancing the immune system, and homeostatic regulation. It helps the body in many ways, such as:
- Motor functions
- Immune functions
- Pain perception
- Bone development
The uses of CBD Oil
The cannabis plant contains many phytocannabinoids (naturally occurring cannabinoids), one of them being cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is a very important and promising substance. When the body is unbalanced, cannabidiol (et al.) stimulates the cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2. The endocannabinoids in the body are supported by phytocannabinoids, especially by cannabidiol, since they are very similar to the body’s own cannabinoids. CBD oil can thus stimulate the body to regulate and balance itself again. It can affect the pH-balance in the blood, pain perception, appetite, mood, energy levels, memory, and above all the immune system. Many researchers are looking into the potential benefits of taking CBD to help improve many illnesses, inflammation, disorders, or pain.
CBD oil for animals
CBD oil is not just beneficial for humans, it can also be used to help animals. As explained in detail above, cannabidiol affects the endogenous cannabinoid system in our bodies. However, as this system is present in all mammals, it can be beneficial for animals too. After all, most medical studies are carried out on animals. You can give your pet CBD oil to help them with various conditions. Find more information here.
What are the possible health benefits of CBD oil proven by studies?
The properties of cannabidiol
Cannabidiol has many potential therapeutic benefits. It can deeply affect the body on both a physiological and biological level. Extensive pre-clinical research and some clinical studies have shown that cannabidiol may have the following characteristics:
- strong antioxidant
- antiepileptic (anticonvulsant)
CBD oil for inflammation and pain
Diverse research reports already confirm that cannabidiol has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties, even when used only in small amounts. A study from the Journal of Experimental Medicine in 2012 showed that cannabidiol lowers pain levels and reduces chronic inflammation in mice and rats.
Smoking, drug use, and withdrawal symptoms
A study from 2013 discovered that smokers who use an inhaler with cannabidiol smoked fewer cigarettes and had lesser cravings for nicotine. A similar study also revealed that hard drugs users, addicted to drugs such as heroin, can benefit from cannabidiol. Researchers found that some symptoms of drug abuse are reduced by using cannabidiol. For example, symptoms such as fear, mood fluctuations, pain, and sleeplessness were all improved as a result of using CBD oil. These new findings suggest that CBD oil could potentially be used to reduce or completely stop withdrawal symptoms altogether.
CBD oil for epilepsy, schizophrenia, and psychotic disorders.
The cannabis plant has been used to help epilepsy sufferers for hundreds of years. In recent years, research has focused on its therapeutic potential. Researchers are especially interested in the non-psychoactive substance cannabidiol found in the plant, and its potentially anticonvulsant characteristics. Many preclinical studies already support this theory. Epidolex, a medicine for epilepsy sufferers containing CBD, is currently in the final stage of approval before it will be available as a medicine.
This clinical trial from the US and Europe has shown that CBD can be used to treat two severe forms of childhood epilepsy known as Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. This is especially promising as both forms of epilepsy often fail to improve with existing epilepsy drugs
Similarly, CBD has curative potential against psychotic disorders. Although THC, a substance also found in the cannabis plant, is thought to trigger psychotic disorders, cannabidiol has the opposite effect. Many drugs currently used to treat psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia often have horrible side effects, leading patients to stop using them altogether. CBD oil, on the other hand, has very few known side-effects, none of which are dangerous.
Can CBD help fight cancer?
Researchers have long explored the effect of cannabidiol on cancer. According to an article in the British Journal of Pharmacology, there has been a series of evidence in recent years demonstrating that cannabinoids may have an anti-tumorous effect. Several reports have already shown that cannabidiol contains antiviral properties and helps treat pain, spasticity, and other diseases in the central nervous system. It could also be a promising substance to help prevent cancer cell migration, adhesion, and invasion.
Cannabidiol seems to block the multiplication of cancer cells in the body and prevent new areas from being attacked by cancer cells. It potentially also represses the growth of cancer cells, encouraging them to die. Researchers believe that cannabidiol could help with cancer treatment, which is great news for cancer sufferers. If you would like to find out more about cannabidiol cancer research, you can find a number of studies here.
Can CBD oil help with anxiety disorders, panic attacks, and depression?
Patients with chronic anxiety and panic attacks are generally advised against taking cannabis as the psychoactive phytocannabinoid THC can aggravate symptoms. However, cannabidiol has completely the opposite effect to THC.
According to a review of neurotherapeutics from 2015, cannabidiol can help to reduce anxiety. Researchers have successfully shown that cannabidiol can lessen anxiety in the following disorders:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Panic attacks
- Social phobias
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Depression (seasonal affective disorder)
The report linked above also states that current medications used to treat these disorders can often lead to additional symptoms. Understandably, many people then decide to stop taking their medicine. By contrast, cannabidiol has not shown any serious adverse side effects to date. This suggests that cannabidiol should be tested in more detail as a potential drug to treat various anxiety disorders.
Using CBD oil to relieve diabetes
As already discussed, cannabidiol is thought to have anti-inflammatory properties. During type 1 diabetes, the body’s immune system destroys the pancreas. Pancreatic damage is caused by an inflammatory infiltration of cells in the immune system into the islets of Langerhans of the pancreas. In turn, the s-cells, which produce insulin, are destroyed. To put it simply, the immune system attacks the cells of the pancreas. This is triggered by an inflammation in the body. In 2016, a research paper from Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation found that cannabidiol can relieve inflammation in the pancreas. It is the first step for cannabidiol-based medicines to help reduce the symptoms of diabetes.
Can cannabidiol be used for Alzheimer’s disease, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis?
The Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease recently published a research paper which found that long-term cannabidiol treatment can prevent memory loss (recognizing faces) in mice. There are also many studies which show that cannabinoids remove beta-amyloid plaque from brain cells – the plaque which is the main cause of Alzheimer’s. You can find a collection of studies about cannabidiol and Alzheimer’s here.
Cannabidiol is also a promising substance in the treatment of chronic inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Researchers found that cannabidiol can reduce inflammation of the intestine in this study. More information and studies on chronic inflammatory bowel diseases can be found here.
Can cannabidiol also be used for Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease?
Multiple studies have found that neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease could benefit greatly from cannabinoid-based medicines. This conclusion is based on how cannabinoid receptors change during the progression of these diseases. The results of a double-blind study also suggest that cannabidiol could improve the quality of life of Parkinson’s patients without psychiatric side-effects.
Could you buy CBD oil for acne?
Yes, cannabidiol could also be used to treat acne. Acne is caused by inflamed sebaceous glands. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation and the National Institute of Health discovered that cannabidiol can reduce sebum production thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. It could, therefore, be used to soothe the sebaceous glands and improve acne.
External application of CBD oil
Can CBD oil be used externally to treat conditions like atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and other skin diseases? Since we are not able to give any advice or answer questions about the diagnosis, prevention or treatment of diseases, it is best to try it out for yourself. Applying CBD oil to the skin is harmless, just like a number of other oils such as coconut oil. Simply try it out for yourself. Testimonies already point to really positive results. You can buy CBD oil through our online shop.
Is cannabidiol a miracle drug?
CBD oil could help relieve the symptoms of many illnesses. The list is ever growing. Studies are being conducted on the effect of CBD oil on multiple sclerosis, lupus, fibromyalgia, rheumatism, arthritis, osteoporosis, prion diseases, mad cow disease, insomnia, migraines, and much more. So is CBD a miracle cure? Not at all – it’s important to not believe such statements. Cannabidiol has positive effects on all sorts of ailments, but it will not cure the illness. More research still needs to be done on how it can benefit patients. CBD oil should be considered to be a beneficial and healthy supplement and not a guaranteed cure.
Before you buy CBD oil, learn about the possible risks and side effects
The risks – CBD doesn’t make you high
Perhaps the most frequently asked question when buying CBD oil is whether it makes you ‘high’. The clear answer to this question is no. Although cannabidiol is indeed a cannabinoid like THC, it doesn’t have the same hallucinogenic effect. It is, in fact, a non-psychoactive substance. Cannabidiol and THC have completely opposite effects. Cannabidiol is even known to reduce the psychoactive effect of THC. CBD oil may contain traces of THC but should always be below the legal limit of 0.2% in Europe and 0.3% in North America. This amount will not make you high. There are absolutely no concerns or risks that CBD oil will have hallucinogenic effects. Don’t worry, when you buy CBD oil you are not buying an illegal drug. It is simply a substance to help treat various illnesses and discomforts.
Side effects of CBD oil
Many smaller studies have concentrated on the safety of cannabidiol among adults. There are still no results on the effect of CBD oil on children. In adults, studies have shown no dangerous side effects to date, neither on the central nervous system, basic functions of the body (vital signs), or mood. The most common side effect reported in adults is fatigue. In very rare cases, some users have reported diarrhoea, dry mouth, or changes in appetite and body weight.
The study linked above found that CBD is safe and well tolerated in humans and animals. To date, it has not been associated with any negative public health effects. Moreover, they state that it is not possible to become high or addicted to CBD oil. You can read an interesting summary of the study here.
Sometimes, taking the oil for the first time can cause a slight burning sensation. Some customers have told us it is a similar feeling to eating spicy foods. However, it shouldn’t persist after orally taking CBD oil. We would be delighted if you share your experience with us as CBD is oil is still a relatively new product. You can do this here.
How does CBD oil react with other medicines?
Cannabidiol is a very safe substance with only minor side effects. However, it is important to consult a naturopath professional before taking CBD oil in combination with other medicines, especially in high doses. Large doses of cannabidiol “switches off” the liver enzyme cytochrome P450. This enzyme influences how we metabolize a whole range of substances (including THC). Cannabidiol can have an even stronger effect than the substance Bergapten found in grapefruits. If your medicine is affected by grapefruits, then it will probably react in a similar way with CBD oil. Ask your naturopath before taking CBD oil.
How to take CBD oil: Administration, application, dosage, storage, and shelf life
There are different forms of Cannabidiol
There are various ways to take cannabidiol to suit every customer. Generally, the most well-known way to intake cannabinoids is to smoke cannabis. This is illegal in many countries. We also don’t want to get ‘high’ to be able to enjoy the positive effects of cannabidiol. You don’t need to smoke cannabidiols to enjoy its benefits. A healthier alternative to smoking, and just one of the ways to consume cannabidiol, is to use a vaporizer. It is very important to buy special CBD vape e-liquids and let it vaporize. Don’t use CBD oil for this.
Since most patients and customers don’t want to inhale something, you can now buy cannabidiol in the form of capsules, drops, tinctures, and lozenges. Ingesting cannabidiol orally is the most effective method as it is absorbed up to ten times better by the body. You can buy CBD oil in the form of CBD oil capsules and CBD oil drops here. You can relax, knowing it is comfortable and easy to take CBD oil.
Buy CBD Oil Drops and CBD Oil Capsules
CBD oil products are available in two different forms – CBD oil capsules and CBD oil drops. The intake and dosage should be adjusted to the needs of each individual customer. The most important decision for you to make is whether to buy CBD oil capsules of CBD oil drops.
What is the difference? Capsules are swallowed just like any tablet, whereas you drip drops under the tongue and keep them in your mouth for a few minutes. CBD oil does have a taste. If you don’t like the taste, you can use CBD oil capsules rather than drops as these are tasteless and odourless. On the other hand, CBD oil drops are ideal if you don’t like to swallow tablets. There is some evidence that drops work slightly faster than capsules, as the capsules have to dissolve in the gut before the CBD oil is absorbed into the body. However, the difference is minimal and both are very effective. The form of CBD oil you choose is completely up to your personal preference. If you aren’t sure, then just pick one and try.
CBD oil also differs in concentration. Most drops and capsules vary from around 2% CBD (200 mg per 1000 ml) up to 20% CBD (2000 mg per 1000 ml). There is no right or wrong amount to take. Sometimes less can be more. Try one of the CBD oil products available in our shop to find the one that works for you.
The use of CBD oil
CBD oil drops can also have a positive effect on the skin thanks to their excellent dermatological properties. The drops are suitable for external use. When choosing an oil, it is best to opt for an organic plant oil that has been enriched with cannabidiol. For example, CBD can be combined with coconut oil, hemp seed oil, or even avocado oil.
When taking CBD oil drops, drip the desired number of drops directly under your tongue. You can use a teaspoon or simply drip them straight from the bottle. You should wait at least five minutes before eating or drinking until the drops have dissolved. CBD oil capsules should be taken with plenty of water.
The dosage of CBD oil
The dosage depends on the desired effect. Patients and customers take CBD oil for various reasons, be it as a nutritional supplement or to help alleviate symptoms for a wide range of conditions. Regardless of your reason for taking CBD oil, we recommend starting with a low dose and increasing it gradually. After around eight weeks, you should have found your ideal dosage and the number of drops/capsules per day that works for you.
If you decide to take our product just once a day (we recommend this at the start), then you can decide for yourself if you prefer to take CBD oil drops or capsules in the morning, or evening before going to bed. See what works best for you. We advise taking no more than two CBD capsules per day and make sure you take them with plenty of water. If you take CBD oil drops, don’t consume more than 30 drops spread out over one day.
Cannabidiol has no known dangerous negative side effects. However, it can have a bigger effect when taken in higher dosages. Don’t believe that the more you take, the more effective it will be. Cannabidiol works in even small doses and could even be less effective if the dose is too high. Less can be more, especially with cannabinoid-based products. See the product description for the recommended dose when buying CBD oil.
The dosage of CBD oil differs from person to person. It is really up to the individual to decide what works best. There is no one dose fits all. Different people and different illnesses require a unique approach.
