Hi there! Welcome to The Real CBD blog. In this article, we elaborate on some of the frequent questions we get about CBD in general and our CBD products. Therefore, 5 facts of CBD Oil you must know before you make your purchase!

CBD (or cannabidiol) is rapidly causing changes in the debate about the use of marijuana as a medicine. Most people have heard about the chemical THC, which is the cannabis ingredient that makes users high. But recently the attention has shifted to another substance called CBD. This CBD can also be found in marijuana and hemp and for good reasons, we are happy about it. Doctors often don’t look into certain effects because of THC, but CBD does not bring that problem at all. In addition, the evidence of the medical benefits of CBD continues to grow, although it is usually obtained by testing on animals and not yet on humans. Therefore, we share five facts that you should know about cannabidiol.

Buy CBD oil: 5 facts you must know before purchasing!

1.CBD is an important ingredient in, among other things, cannabis

CBD is one of more than 100 substances found in cannabis and belongs to a category of molecules called cannabinoids. Of these substances, CDB and THC are naturally present in the largest amount. That is why these substances are recognized and studied by scientists the most. The CBD and THC content tend to vary between different varieties. Marijuana that is grown for recreational purposes often contains more THC than CBD. However, by using selective breeding techniques, hemp growers have succeeded in creating variants that have a high CBD content but hardly contain THC. These strains are rare but have become increasingly popular in recent years.

2. CBD is not psychoactive

Unlike THC, CBD does not ensure that the user gets high. Although this feature makes it a bad choice for recreational users, it does give the substance a significant advantage as a medicine. Doctors prefer means with limited or no side effects. CBD is not psychoactive because it is not effective on the same pathways as THC. These pathways, called CB1 receptors, are highly concentrated in the brain and are responsible for the mind-expanding effects of THC. A 2011 study published in “Current Drug Safety” concluded that CBD “does not affect various psychomotor and psychological functions.” The authors added that several studies suggest that CBD is “well tolerated and safe,” even when high doses.

3. CBD offers many different medical benefits

Although CBD and THC are active through different pathways in the body, they seem to have many of the same medical benefits. According to a 2013 study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, studies have shown that CBD possesses the following medical properties:

  • Anti-emetic – Reduces nausea and vomiting
  • Anticonvulsant – Suppresses epileptic activity
  • Anti-psychotic – Combats psychosis disorders
  • Anti-inflammatory – Combats inflammatory disorders Antioxidant – combats neurodegenerative disorders
  • Antitumoral / Anti-cancer – Combats tumor and cancer cells Anxiolytics/antidepressant – combats anxiety and depression disorders

* Unfortunately, most of this evidence comes from animal testing since very few clinical studies have been conducted with human patients. But recently a pharmaceutical version of CDB has been developed by a pharmaceutical company based in the United Kingdom. The company named GW Pharmaceuticals is now funding clinical trials with CBD as a treatment method for schizophrenia and certain forms of epilepsy. In addition, a team of researchers from the California Pacific Medical Center, led by Dr. Sean McAllister announced that they hope to start researching CBD as a treatment method for breast and brain cancer.

4. CBD reduces the negative effects of THC

CDB seems to provide a natural protection against the high that can cause marijuana. Numerous studies suggest that CBD reduces the intoxicating effects of THC, such as memory loss and paranoia. CBD also seems to counter the sleep-inducing effects of THC, which may explain why some strains of cannabis are known to increase alertness. Both CBD and THC do not pose a risk for fatal overdose. But to reduce the possible side effects, it may be better for medical users to use cannabis with higher levels of CBD.

5. CBD oil is not addictive

CBD oil is then extracted from (industrial) hemp, which falls under the cannabis family, but it does not contain THC. THC is the dust that makes you high or stoned. You cannot get stoned from CBD oil. In addition, CBD has no addictive effect. You can not become addicted spiritually because it does not work psychoactive. You will also not get withdrawal symptoms if you stop using it, so there is no question of physical addiction either. It is safe for daily use, but some also use it only when they suffer more from physical complaints. 

Extra: before you Buy CBD oil

Extra 1: Is the use of CBD products beneficial if I am healthy?  

Each individual is unique and has different goals with regard to his or her well-being, which he or she may want to address through the consumption and application of our products. The feedback we have received from a wide variety of consumers and professionals in the healthcare industry is extremely positive. We recommend that you discuss CBD with your doctor or healthcare provider if you have a specific health-related question or problems. There are also many independent studies on CBD available on the internet.

Extra 2: Is CBD Illegal?

Is CBD illegal? The EFSA (European Food Safety Authority), the European agency responsible for regulating all that has to do with food (among other things, food supplements) has issued a statement regarding the legality of CBD. According to EFSA, until the European Union regulates CBD, it is illegal to use it as a food supplement.

Many CBD products that are sold on various websites are considered and/or registered food supplements. CBD products remain food supplements until clinical trials by third parties have been completed and regulatory approval has been received. Nevertheless, all products of The Real CBD are registered as a herbal solution. As a result, none of our CBD containing products are illegal in Spain.

CBD Spain: Difference between hemp and cannabis

First of all, it is important to explain the difference between Hemp and Cannabis. Cannabis comes from the “Cannabis Stava” plant. This plant is mainly grown for its high values of THC. I will explain later what THC exactly contains, but it is known for its psychoactive properties, also the “High” feeling. Hemp, on the other hand, is grown for industrial purposes. The number of products that can be made is estimated at around 25,000. This is because the percentage of THC in hemp is negligible. (<0.2%). This means that it does not work psychoactively and is not cultivated for that. The hemp plant does contain the special and positive properties of the cannabis plant and among other things, CBD is extracted from this. Because there are no side effects associated with CBD and the product is 100% natural, it is completely safe to try to see if it has a beneficial effect on you.

What is CBD?

CBD is the abbreviation of Cannabidiol. This is one of the 104 active substances from hemp of the cannabis plant. Cannabidiol, CBD, is found in the small blisters (trichomes) that grow on the hemp flowers. This sticky substance is removed from the vesicles and what remains is the CBD. This CBD is often diluted with hemp oil, coconut oil, olive oil or sunflower oil, making the CBD into an oil. This oil acts on the receptor cells of the body and stimulates the reaction of the nervous system and the immune system of the human body. This system that every human being has, they call the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system regulates the functioning of all the cells in your body and therefore it is important to support this. What exactly CBD does is help the cells that are healthy in our body to stay healthy, but the cells that radically change also cause them to destroy themselves. That is why CBD supports oil in many symptoms.

What is THC?

THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol. People know this substance mainly for its psychoactive effect, also known as “high” or “stoned”. THC is the most researched and recognized ingredient of cannabis. It locks with the nerve cell receptors in the brain, affecting human behavior. Dopamine is released due to the interaction of THC on the brain. The effects of THC last about 2 hours and start within 10-30 minutes after use.

High as a kite with CBD?

The most psychoactive ingredient is THC. CBD, on the other hand, is completely non-psychoactive. THC, therefore, gives a “high” feeling, while CBD does not. The non-psychoactive properties make CBD a good candidate for medical examinations.

How do you use CBD Oil?

Different CBD products have different ways of intake. CBD Oil should be dripped under your tongue and swallowed after 30 seconds. This is best 3 times a day before a meal, with which you slowly build up the number of drops at a time. Continue to increase slowly until your body indicates that the dose is sufficient. This can vary per person. Up to 15-25 drops per day. The maximum number of drops is different for everyone. Take the capsules with CBD Oil with water before meals.

What dosage should I use from CBD Oil?

Roughly the following applies:

  • 3% for children, pets, and light complaints.
  • 5% for adults and average complaints.
  • We recommend 10% or higher to use the more serious clinical pictures.

Is CBD Oil legal?

CBD Oil is 100% legal in Europe. This is because these products contain no or very little THC. THC or cannabis oil is not legal. This is because it has the ipsycho-active effect which is also called high.

What can CBD Oil be used for
