CBD, what is it?
Before going any further, a little reminder is in order. CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of many cannabinoids found in hemp, otherwise known as legal cannabis. It should not be confused with THC, another cannabis molecule, which is strictly prohibited in France and many other countries.
While THC is addictive and reality-altering due to its mind-altering effects, CBD simply provides relaxation and relief. It thus leaves the consumer in full possession of his body and mind, without causing addiction.
CBD oil is thus composed of the cannabidiol molecule as well as other hemp cannabinoids, strictly respecting the legal threshold of THC not to be exceeded, i.e. 0.3%. By taking CBD oil, you do not risk suffering the adverse effects of THC.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is obtained from the extraction of the seeds, flowers and leaves of hemp. Cannabidiol is mixed with active ingredients that allow you to enjoy all the benefits of CBD. CBD oils are sold in the form of a bottle with a pipette thanks to which it is possible to make a precise dosage of the desired amount of CBD, to the nearest drop. CBD oil is not the only product derived from legal cannabis, it is also possible to consume it in the form of candy, capsules or vape for example.
Full spectrum et broad spectrum
Depending on the extraction method chosen, it is possible to obtain a full spectrum oil or a broad spectrum oil. The difference between these two spectra lies in the composition of the oil. Indeed, a full spectrum oil contains all the cannabinoids, terpenes and flavoids present in cannabis. THC is therefore included in a full spectrum oil, respecting the regulations in force. The combination of all these elements creates a real synergy, known as the entourage effect. This then allows you to enjoy all the benefits of the compounds of legal cannabis.
Broad Spectrum Oil works on the same principle, except the THC is removed during the extraction process. The entourage effect will therefore be less strong than a full spectrum oil. The choice between the two types of oil therefore depends on the presence of THC.
Why take 40% CBD oil?
CBD oils are sold with higher or lower amounts of CBD, usually between 5 and 40%. The stronger the presence of cannabidiol, the more powerful its effects will be:
CBD oil 5 and 10%: low concentration of CBD, used to relax. 10 and 20% CBD oil: moderate concentration of CBD, used to promote sleep and reduce stress and mild pain. CBD oil between 20 and 40%: high concentration of CBD, used to relieve anxiety and moderate to severe pain.
40% CBD oil is thus considered a powerful dosage. It thus allows you to take advantage of all the strength of cannabidiol to relieve your daily life of various disorders thanks to its therapeutic benefits. However, it is recommended that you seek advice from a medical professional if you are affected by any of these problems.
Fight pain and inflammation
Faced with certain neuropathic pain or chronic diseases, 40% CBD oil is particularly effective thanks to its high concentration of cannabidiol. Indeed, lower dose CBD oils do not help to calm pain and inflammation when they reach a high intensity. 40% CBD oil is also recognized for its effectiveness against epilepsy.
The anti-inflammatory properties of cannabidiol are enabled by the interaction of cannabidiol with the endocannabinoid system present in the body. This acts directly on the central nervous system, being able to significantly reduce pain and inflammation.
Get relief from anxiety
While oils with a low amount of CBD provide relief from moderate stress, 40% CBD oil is effective in reducing anxiety. It can therefore be particularly effective during an anxiety attack or a panic attack. A CBD oil with a high percentage of cannabidiol also helps reduce symptoms of depression. The endocannabinoid system is able to regulate serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain.
Thanks to the calming and relaxing effect it provides, CBD is able to facilitate sleep. A high concentration of CBD also helps to limit insomnia and help people with sleep disorders. To reap its full benefits, CBD should be taken about 30 minutes before bedtime, either sublingually or in an infusion.
Improve cardiovascular health
Daily intake of CBD contributes to good cardiovascular health by limiting blood pressure and promoting blood pressure. Cannabidiol would thus be able to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
With its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can help reduce acne and other skin conditions by regulating excess oil and itching. Cannabidiol could thus act effectively against eczema or psoriasis.
How to consume CBD oil?
CBD oil is one of the favorite products made from legal hemp thanks to its multiple uses. Depending on the method used, the effects of cannabidiol can be felt more or less quickly:
Sublingually: pour a few drops of CBD oil under your tongue, the cannabidiol will act after a few minutes. By mouth: mix a few drops of CBD oil with a tea or an infusion or even with a culinary preparation. It is necessary to wait for the digestion time so that the oil begins to take effect. By cutaneous application: place a few drops in the palm of your hand and massage on the area to be treated. It is possible to add drops of CBD oil to a massage oil to relax a specific part of the body.
How much CBD to take per day?
There is no single dosage of CBD. This is because the amount depends on several factors like a person's height, weight, and tolerance level. However, it is estimated that an adult can consume between 0.5 mg and 1 mg of CBD per kg depending on the intensity of the pain and the desired effect.
One drop of 40% CBD oil is approximately 20mg of cannabidiol. That is, a person weighing 80 kg can take 2-4 drops depending on the level of pain. However, it is strongly recommended to start with a small amount of CBD and gradually increase it if it is not sufficient. 40% CBD oil is primarily for people who have consumed lower concentrations of cannabidiol.
