CBD products are everywhere. From high street health food shops to supermarket shelves, the popular cannabis extract has been hitting the headlines on a fairly consistent basis for the past couple of years now. But what is CBD oil and what is it used for? Let’s find out more.
IS CBD MEDICALLY BENEFICIAL?
CBD is just one of over a hundred different cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, which have been found to interact with our very own endocannabinoid system. This system is made up of two types of receptors found throughout the body, which react accordingly depending on which cannabinoid they come into contact with. It’s thought that the endocannabinoid system is responsible for a number of physiological processes linked to our homeostasis – responsible for things like mood, sleep, appetite and our immune functions.
It’s this information that has spurred on and continues to inspire countless medical studies regarding the effects of CBD on certain medical conditions such as epilepsy, Crohn’s disease, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, anxiety, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and more.
At this stage, no specific or definitive conclusions have been made regarding the medicinal benefits of CBD. While these studies and research continue, it’s important to note that neither the UK or EU currently recognise CBD as having any remedial or medical benefits.
THE EFFECTS OF CBD
The effects of CBD will vary from individual to individual, though the most common feeling is likened to waves of calm, splashing over you periodically. There has never been a case of anybody overdosing on CBD, however, the most important side effect to take note of is potential drowsiness when using the product. Depending on how you feel when you use CBD, avoid using heavy machinery and doing anything that may pose any danger.
The two primary methods of using CBD Oil are by using sublingual drops or vaping. Depending on which method you use to consume CBD will determine the period of time in which you feel the effects of CBD and how long those effects last for.
When you vape CBD, the cannabinoid molecules will be quickly absorbed into your bloodstream via your mouth and lungs. Many report effects to be felt within 90 seconds and to last up to 4 hours. Using sublingual drops means that the CBD will be absorbed via your mucus glands under your tongue, and once swallowed, absorbed into your bloodstream via your stomach lining. The time it takes for the CBD to impact your body will ultimately take longer (up to 30 minutes), though crucially will last for a longer period of time (up to 6 hours).
