CBD 101: Intro to Cannabidiol Oil
Return to Vaping Blogs

About a month ago we wrote a post about the benefits of CBD oil, an alternative wellness compound that is becoming increasingly popular among consumers for its incredible health benefits. The buzz around CBD has to do with the fact that it is a non-psychoactive (no high) cannabis-derivative.

 

The medical applications are only growing with time. So far CBD-oil users have found relief from anxiety, depression, seizures, epilepsy, nausea, pain and inflammation, psychosis, cancer, and some neurological disorders.

 

Five Things You Need To Know About CBD

 

1. While it’s still technically made from cannabis it’s produced from low-THC hemp via an extraction technique. So there is no “high” associated with its usage. It’s strictly medicinal and meant to alleviate a variety of symptoms and ailments.

 

2. All mammals on the planet have cannabinoid receptor sites. Meaning cannabis and its derivatives (other chemicals found in the cannabis plant) work naturally with a mammal’s body, making up the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

 

3. It is IMPOSSIBLE to overdose on CBD. This is a non-toxic, non-psychoactive substance. Completely safe to use.

 

4. CBD oil can block the addictive effect of some other drugs based on a study conducted on rats in 2013. Making it a viable candidate for future addiction treatment therapies.

 

5. Depending on the dosage, CBD can either sedate or energize. Higher dosages promote more calming and sedative effects while smaller doses can help with alertness.
