Frequently Asked Questions

The possible side-effects of using CBD oil can be mild, such as fatigue or dry mouth. These side effects are typically short term and lessen over time.

The reasons cbd oils are so popular is because many people with chronic pain use it to help combat the disorder, and others routinely take CBD oil supplements for anxiety or PTSD.

The most common ailments that CBD can relieve are chronic pain (making it perfect for sufferers of Fibromyalgia) which was found in a study by Vassar College to reduce by 25% (when taken for 3 months), problems with seizures, inflammation, depression, multiple sclerosis-related spasticity and neurological disorders. Not only has there been extensive research done on animals but also on humans who have suffered from these issues.

CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, this means there is no “high” associated with it. Research into the benefits of CBD has exploded and suggested that the cannabinoid may be useful for treating anxiety and epilepsy, chronic pain and diabetes.

Depending on how quickly you break down chemicals in your body, it may take longer for CBD to kick in. On average, the effects of CBD start about 20 minutes after absorption and reach a peak at about 40-80 minutes later.

Unfortunately, no one can answer that question with 100% certainty.

On average, most people use anywhere from 10mg-800mg per day unless they are taking prescription medications (like anxiety medication). CBD is very safe and has only mild side effects like nausea or sedation when taken at inappropriate levels. It’s always best to start low and work your way up though because everyone is different in what they tolerate well. You also want to ask us about the potential risks before starting any new regimen of medicine, particularly if you’re pregnant or nursing, which you likely are not due to your age group.

The short and sweet answer is “no.”
CBD, or cannabidiol, doesn’t contain any psychoactive properties. It’s the part of marijuana that has medicinal benefits without making people feel drug-like. As we know from experience with marijuana, all cannabinoids (THC and CBD) in combination can be anxiety inducing in higher doses. So if you’re stressed out about trying a new cannabinoid like CBD then try to take it in lower doses when your body is feeling calm and comfortable.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the over 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis. It is not psychoactive like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Unlike THC, CBD does not act on CB1 or CB2 receptors (the ones that are primarily responsible for the effects of marijuana), but instead acts on various other neurotransmitter systems in the brain-gut interface.
What this means is that a person taking a CBD rich product will be able to get all of its wonderful effects without getting high! If you don’t want any of those side effects, then CBD might just be what you need!
