Highly appreciated thanks to its many benefits, CBD oil has become more popular in France since its legalization. 30% CBD oil has a high concentration of CBD which is essential to fully understand before consuming it for the first time. Zoom on the use and virtues of CBD oil with this guide.
What do we mean by CBD cannabis?
If CBD has become legal, it remains subject to certain prejudices and misconceptions that it is important to clarify. Indeed, CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the cannabinoids present in the hemp plant. Among them is THC. Because of its psychotropic effects, this molecule is strictly prohibited in France and in many other countries.
For its part, CBD does not cause a "high" or addictive effect. In other words, the consumer remains in full possession of his body and his mind, without suffering any alteration of reality. CBD thus makes it possible to relax and relieve a person of certain symptoms and ailments that may be linked to certain pathologies. Its consumption is thus made to take advantage of its therapeutic benefits, unlike the recreational use of THC.
CBD oil, what is it?
It is possible to obtain many products from the hemp plant such as capsules, e-liquids or candies for example. CBD oil is a big favorite thanks to its convenient format, in the form of a bottle with a dropper. This makes it possible to carry out a precise dosage according to the number of drops desired. It is thus possible to perfectly regulate its dose, to the nearest drop to effectively measure its consumption of CBD.
The different CBD oils
There is a wide range of CBD oils. Depending on the chosen hemp plant, the CBD concentration level, the extraction method or the chosen spectrum, the effects of CBD are very variable. It is therefore important to know these different elements well in order to choose the CBD oil best suited to your needs.
Full spectrum CBD oil: the extraction of full spectrum CBD makes it possible to take advantage of the coating effect of the various cannabinoids and terpenes present in hemp. This effect thus makes it possible to take advantage of all their benefits, associated with each other. Among the cannabinoids present in a full spectrum is THC. For it to be legal in France, it must have a rate lower than 0.3%. Broad spectrum CBD oil: Broad spectrum CBD is based on the same principle as full spectrum. The difference lies in the absence of THC during the extraction. The coating effect will therefore be less pronounced. CBD oil isolate: during the extraction phase, only CBD is recovered. The CBD isolate therefore does not contain any other cannabinoids or terpenes. This is the purest form of CBD.
Why Choose 30% CBD Oil?
There is a wide variety of CBD oils, with a more or less strong concentration of cannabidiol, ranging from 5 to more than 40%. This directly influences the power of its effects:
Low concentration: CBD oils between 5 and 10%, Average concentration: CBD oils between 10 and 20%, Strong concentration: CBD oils over 20%.
A percentage of 30% of CBD therefore represents a very high concentration of cannabidiol. It is therefore mainly aimed at people who have already consumed a lower dosage of CBD in order to avoid any adverse effects. It is also advisable to take this concentration only for acute pain to be able to take full advantage of all its therapeutic benefits.
Reduction of pain
Cannabidiol is able to influence the central nervous system through its interaction with the endocannabinoid system. This regulates many physiological parameters such as mood, appetite or pain. A CBD oil with a concentration of 30% can thus effectively relieve chronic or muscular pain, linked to certain serious pathologies.
The interaction with the nervous system also makes CBD suitable for reducing inflammation caused by immune system failure or chronic diseases. CBD oil thus reduces the importance of inflammation on the tissues, especially in the face of arthritis or osteoarthritis for example.
Reduction of anxiety
Cannabidiol helps to soothe, relax and relax. A CBD oil with a high percentage effectively decreases anxiety by relieving anxiety attacks and panic attacks. The feeling of well-being it provides also reduces the symptoms of depression so that you can regain control of your body and mind.
The relaxation allowed by CBD oil provides quality sleep for people experiencing insomnia or falling asleep disorders. Indeed, the time to fall asleep is reduced thanks to cannabidiol, while sleep is deep and continuous.
Improved skin quality
With its ability to reduce inflammation, 30% CBD oil is able to decrease skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, or eczema. Cannabidiol also helps to limit itching as well as the abundant production of sebum which can cause other skin problems such as the formation of blackheads.
Slowing of skin aging
Thanks to its antioxidant properties, 30% CBD oil helps reduce the sign of aging by limiting the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. It therefore acts as a real anti-aging agent by effectively moisturizing and protecting the skin to give it a second youth.
How to consume CBD oil?
CBD oil can be taken sublingually (directly under the tongue), but it can also be added to culinary preparations or infusions. The oil can also be applied to a painful area of the body for local relief. A few drops of CBD oil can also be given to pets if they are under stress.
CBD oil can be taken at different times of the day, depending on the desired effect. Thus, it is possible to consume CBD when symptoms appear (stress, pain) or about thirty minutes before bedtime to facilitate falling asleep and find deep sleep. It should be noted that the effects will be felt more or less quickly depending on the method of administration. CBD will therefore take longer to act if it is ingested, unlike the sublingual route.
The dosage depends on several factors such as height, weight or CBD tolerance level. It is strongly recommended to start with a low dosage and increase it gradually, if necessary. According to estimates, it is recommended to consume between 0.5 and 1 mg of CBD per kg. Since one drop of 30% CBD oil represents 15 mg, a 70 kg person can take between 2 and 5 drops of CBD depending on the intensity of the pain and the desired effect.
