Let's discuss the CBD Topics

Q: What is CBD?

A: CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is a cannabinoid extracted from the cannabis plant that, when ingested, works with the endocannabinoid system inside the body for a variety of effects that include pain management, inflammation relief, reduced seizures, and more. 

Q: What’s the difference between CBD and THC?

A: To understand what is different, it really helps to outline what they have in common first. CBD and THC have an almost identical molecular structure composed of 21 carbon atoms, 30 hydrogen atoms and 2 oxygen atoms.

The slight difference is in how the atoms are arranged, and that difference accounts for the varying effects each has on the body.

Q: What’s the difference between hemp and marijuana?

A: The answer to this question varies with a lot of people due to the historical use of both names.

For starters, hemp and marijuana are both cannabis plants. Marijuana as a name typically referring to the type of cannabis plant that contains high levels of THC while hemp has very low levels of THC.

Q: Why doesn’t CBD make me high like regular weed?

A: Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the psychoactive cannabinoid that makes me people high. Due to legal reasons, CBD weed has less than 0.3% THC (U.S.) or 0.2% (E.U.) and only produces mild relaxation effects.

Q: Does CBD affect my mental state?

A: The answer to this question is highly dependent on the individual.

Since CBD is not psychoactive in the same way as THC, it will not get you high in the same way. This does not necessarily mean that there is no effect as many users report that they get a subtle feeling of relaxation from taking CBD.

Q: When I put this CBD balm on my sore shoulder, the pain went away really fast. What happened there?

A: CBD works with the endocannabinoid system, replicating the effects of internal cannabinoids, called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids generally work with the endocannabinoid system to induce pain-relieving effects, among many other functions. This is why cannabis is being studied extensively for use in a variety of conditions by medical researchers.

Q: Regular weed makes me paranoid and gives me anxiety. Will CBD oil have the same effect?

A: Generally speaking, the answer is no, however everyone experiences different results.

Despite their similarity in terms of structure, THC is considered to be the psychoactive compound while CBD is non-psychoactive. This is due to the idea that each binds differently to brain receptors for different results.

Research has even shown that CBD binds weakly with the receptors for THC, and that this could even reduce the “high” feeling that comes with smoking regular weed. Since modern strains of weed are very high in THC, it could also be the case that the “regular weed” you mentioned has a high THC/CBD ratio, contributing to that paranoid feeling.

Q: Is it possible to overdose on CBD?

A: Yes. Although considered to be very safe with minimal to no side effects, a CBD overdose may cause negative effects like lethargy or drowsiness. When it comes to dosing it is best to start small and increase over time.

Q: Do I need a prescription for CBD oil?

A: No, CBD is legal in most countries and can be purchased over the counter without a prescription. 

This should not be confused with medical marijuana laws that include products with THC. If someone lives in a jurisdiction where products with THC are legal then they are able to access a fuller range of cannabis-based products.

Q: Is CBD Oil Addictive?

A: CBD is not considered to be an addictive drug because it doesn’t produce any psychoactive effects. In fact, some people smoke our cannabis herb to break the addiction to regular cigarettes that contain nicotine.

Q: Will Using CBD Oil Make Me Fail a Drug Test?

A: Yes, it’s possible because CBD oil has small amounts of THC in it. While this won’t make you high, it may register a positive on a sensitive drug test.
