What is CBD? The Complete Guide to Cannabidiol

About CBD

Cannabidiol, or CBD as it is commonly referred to, is rapidly gaining interest in the supplement as well as the pain relief circles. It’s being touted as a miracle drug and as a cure-all, with wild claims even hailing it as a cancer cure.  Cannabidiol oil is a non-intoxicating extract from the Cannabis plants. This means it does not possess some of the more, shall we say, interesting effects of some of its cousins that Cannabis is generally associated with. Why is CBD being added to post-workout smoothies and morning coffees? You may, and probably should ask. After all, CBD is an ingredient of cannabis. The second most popular one, in fact. We will look into the benefits and the usage of CBD in this post. This may get just a little bit technical, but we promise not to throw a (medical) thesaurus at you.

Benefits of CBD

Cannabidiol, what is it good for? A lot, as it apparently turns out. The research for the medicinal benefits of CBD is still ongoing and in a lot of areas, is still in early stages. The signs are very promising however, and that is the driving force behind the rise in the oil’s popularity. CBD has shown amazing potential in helping with a number of very serious conditions, ranging from childhood epilepsy to chronic pains, anxiety, and psychosis. It even has a place among beauty products. We will look into all of them in turn.

The Belle of the Ball, CBD and Beauty

With the sudden influx of hemp based CBD beauty products entering the beauty space how do you know which products you can trust?  CBD, which stands for cannabidiol is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. The most common question people ask is, can CBD get me high? No, it won’t get you high like fellow cannabinoid THC, and all M CBD products are non-psychoactive, derived from organically grown hemp and always THC free.  Recent clinical research on cannabidiol show promising benefits for addressing anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain but what can CBD do for your skin? The benefits of CBD infused beauty products have been studied over the years showing evidence supporting CBD’s ability to reduce inflammation, fight acne, and address chronic pain.

CBD is being used, with increasing frequency, in high end beauty products. The promise to smooth wrinkling, prevent pimples and help with dry skin, does have medical backing, and it can make the skin look young and radiant. CBD has also shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, making it suitable in treating conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema.  Read more about using CBD beauty products for your skin here

CBD and Chronic Pain

Cannabidiol, or CBD as it is commonly referred to, is rapidly gaining interest in the supplement as well as the pain relief circles. It’s being touted as a miracle drug and as a cure-all, with wild claims even hailing it as a cancer cure.  Cannabidiol oil is a non-intoxicating extract from the Cannabis plants. This means it does not possess some of the more, shall we say, interesting effects of some of its cousins that Cannabis is generally associated with. Why is CBD being added to post-workout smoothies and morning coffees? You may, and probably should ask. After all, CBD is an ingredient of cannabis. The second most popular one, in fact. We will look into the benefits and the usage of CBD in this post. This may get just a little bit technical, but we promise not to throw a (medical) thesaurus at you.

CBD and Epilepsy

The medicinal use of CBD that has received the most scientific backing; There is strong scientific evidence indicating CBD’s effectiveness in treating some of the worst childhood epilepsy syndromes. CBD helps victims of Epileptic syndromes such as Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), which are unresponsive to anti-seizure treatments. CBD has been shown to reduce and in some cases eliminate seizures in these patients. Epidiolex, a cannabis-derived medicine containing CBD, has been approved by the FDA as a treatment for these conditions. CBD is a common treatment for anxiety. It has shown to help with symptoms of anxiety, particularly social anxiety. CBD is also used to ease the suffering of Insomnia, with studies suggesting it helps patients fall and stay asleep.

CBD and Psychosis

A recent study has suggested that CBD can have therapeutic effects on Psychosis patients. Psychosis patients are detached from reality and suffer hallucinations. This forbes article goes in details on the significance and the potential impact of this study. The oil “resets” the brain activity, thus helping alleviate the symptoms of psychosis. CBD has shown immense potential that is unlike any traditional antipsychotic treatment.

Using CBD Products

A big problem with CBD based supplements and treatments is the uncertainty. CBD is being currently sold and marketed as a dietary supplement, and not a medication. That means that unlike medications, the FDA does not regulate the quality, purity, and safety of CBD based supplements. A 2017 study found that almost 7 of the 10 CBD products tested did not contain the amount of extract specified on the label. “It’s the Wild West out there”, says Bonn-Miller, conductor of the study. All hemp is not created equal, which makes it very important to obtain the highest possible quality and zero percent psychoactive CBD products. That’s where MCBD comes in. Check out our shop to find out how we offer the world’s best organic hemp-based CBD products. CBD is a supplement that can be used in a host of different ways. How you take your CBD supplements is crucial because it can affect how your body absorbs and delivers the extract into your body. That has a direct influence on how effective the supplements can be.

1. CBD with Food and Drinks

Because of the numerous health benefits offered by the oil, and the lack of major side effects, the use of CBD in food and beverages is on the rise. While relatively risk free, it is still important to regulate and monitor your intake to ensure you are getting the desired effects from the CBD supplements. That becomes difficult with the unregulated CBD market. Our line of CBD Oil Tinctures makes that extremely easy and painless, with each product clearly and reliably labeled.

2. CBD and Skincare

CBD is an increasingly popular ingredient in the beauty and skin care products. It is being used in skin care lotions, salves, bath-bombs, serums, and oils. CBD is useful not only as a beauty product but also for its anti-inflammation properties. While CBD has shown clear signs of helping with skin conditions, not all the products are used in a manner that has shown to be helpful. It is important to find a product that works. There is also the risk of mislabelled products. You can find our lines of Pain Relief Salves as well as our Face Masks on our store. Our skin care products are created from the finest grade organic hemp and are clearly and accurately labeled.

3. Taking Sublingual CBD

One of the most common ways of using the oil is by placing it under the tongue. Under the tongue or sublingual method of consumption has become popular for its ease, speed, and efficiency. It is also more effective in regulating your supplement intake. You can drop, spray, or spread the CBD oil under your tongue. By holding the oil for about 60-90 seconds under your tongue, you can bypass the digestive system and metabolization by the liver, and reach the bloodstream directly. Our Tinctures and Soft Gels are well suited to sublingually consume the supplements.
