We asked them to list us the Top 5 CBD FAQ’s. Here is what they said gets asked most commonly regarding CBD.
1. What Does CBD Stand For and What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol. CBD is one of many various molecules found in the cannabis sativa plant, generally the Marijuana or Hemp plant are used to source CBD with the latter (Hemp) being the most common source. It is believed by many that CBD may help support overall health and wellness.
2. How Does CBD Work in my Body and What is the Endocannabinoid System?
CBD interacts directly with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) already present in our bodies. Mammals, including both people and pets, have an ECS. This ECS has a number of receptors that help regulate important bodily functions such as neurotransmitter and hormone secretion, temperature, metabolism, as well as controlling inflammation, to name only a few. CBD essentially benefits the body by acting as a natural booster to the functions that the ECS is performing.
3. What is a CBD Tincture?
A CBD tincture is a preparation of CBD in a carrier oil, which can be olive oil, hemp seed oil, or coconut oil to name a few. Tinctures are administered under the tongue (sublingually), held for at least 90 seconds, then swallowed. Since tinctures are used sublingually, CBD is absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the capillaries located in the mouth. CBD tinctures are very fast-acting, and an effective method for taking CBD.
4. Why Should I Choose CBD instead of Medical Marijuana?
Medical cannabis, also known as medical marijuana, is known for its intoxicating and euphoric effects. The main distinction is that medical cannabis contains higher levels of THC, the cannabinoid that causes the psychoactive effects. Medical cannabis has a very real possibility of creating an intoxicating sensation when consuming too much. CBD, on the other hand, is not intoxicating because of the low levels of THC produced by the Hemp plant. Therefore, CBD does not cause the feeling people refer to as “high” and can be used while performing daily physical activities. Palm Organix™ exclusively sells Broad Spectrum CBD products which means our entire line of CBD products is 100% THC free.
5. How Frequently Can I Take CBD?
CBD can be taken every day, at multiple times throughout the day, or at particular times of the day if you prefer. Everyone is unique and the CBD amount, and CBD frequency in which they take CBD can vary.
