It has become common knowledge that CBD oil is good for the body.
It’s important to note, however, that the fact that it has medicinal qualities does not mean to say that it can be abused.
Amounts have to be carefully monitored to ensure the security of the user and effectiveness in treating their condition/symptoms.
Here are some facts you need to know when using CBD oil products:
It should not be smoked
Cannabidiol (CBD), one component of cannabis plants, has therapeutic effects without any psychoactive effects when taken orally or applied topically. This property makes CBD very appealing as a treatment for medical conditions such as chronic pain, cancer, and anxiety.
CBD has little effect on CB 1 receptors which are responsible for the marijuana high, but it can interact with other receptors, including serotonin 5-HT 1A (which contributes to CBD’s antidepressant effects), TRPV-1 (found in the body’s endocannabinoid system; regulates body temperature, inflammation, and pain), and GPR55 (involved in bone density regulation).
There is no resource evidence that CBD itself is habit-forming. However, there have been some reports of people getting addicted to products that contain it.
Research suggests that CBD oil products should be used only when needed until you find the amount that works best for you.
There are three ways to use CBD oil
When purchasing CBD oil, you will find a range of products designed for different uses. Understanding how each product works best can help you make the right decision.
Capsules – These capsules contain concentrated extract from hemp and are taken orally by users who want to benefit from the effects of CBD. It is recommended that users take anywhere between 2-10mg per day as needed until they find their optimal dose depending on how many milligrams per day they need to treat their medical condition/symptoms. Once the optimal dose has been found, capsules should be taken once or twice a day as needed or as prescribed by your doctor/pharmacist. Users should not exceed 40mg per day.
Vaporizing CBD – It is possible to vaporize CBD as it has a low boiling point (160°C+), and evidence suggests that this method may be more effective than others as the active ingredients are absorbed directly into the bloodstream through mucous membranes in the lungs.
Topical – products containing CBD products can also be applied topically and absorbed through the skin. These products should only be used externally and not taken orally because they won’t produce therapeutic effects this way even if you apply a large amount of them on your skin.
