1. Production of CBD oil

CBD oil is made from industrial hemp. Industrial hemp contains a relatively large amount of cannabidiol. In addition, the THC content in industrial hemp is negligible.

The industrial hemp is first made into a type of oil with a very high concentration of CBD. This is then diluted with vegetable oil, so that very accurate dosing of CBD is possible.

2. Choosing CBD oil

Not only because of the overkill of information about CBD on the internet, it can be difficult to choose the right CBD oil, but also because it is very personal which oil suits someone best. That’s why below we cover the most important things to look out for when choosing the right oil with CBD.

CBD can be used by adults, children or pets.

3. CBD products

Among the general public, CBD oil is the best-known product containing cannabidiol, but there are other useful products containing CBD. The most common CBD products are:

CBD oil

In our assortment, you will find a wide range of CBD oils of various quality brands and with different concentrations of cannabidiol.

CBD patches

The CBD patches should not be stuck on a wound. The plasters gradually release CBD. Your skin then absorbs the CBD. This is how the CBD enters your body.

CBD capsules

These are capsules to swallow. The capsules are filled with CBD oil.

CBD skincare products

CBD can be added to all kinds of care products, for example, CBD-infused cream, massage oil and hand soap.

CBD for pets

In addition to CBD oil for pets, this also includes CBD lozenges for dogs and cats.

CBD water-soluble powder

CBD powder is pretty much the ‘new kid on the block. It is gaining fast popularity because it is odourless and tasteless, and its versatile qualities. You can mix the cannabidiol powder in any hot/cold drinks, meals shakes, or even take it straight from the capsule.


4. CBD oil safety

Because CBD oil is a relatively young product, many people have questions about safety related to the use of CBD. Safety is also an important value for us. That’s why we cover the most important safety concerns that people have.

No risk of a high
As soon as one finds out that the basic ingredients of CBD come from the cannabis plant (fibre hemp plant), this raises the question for some people: can you get high from CBD oil?

Let’s get this misunderstanding out of the air once and for all: It is impossible to get high from CBD. Our CBD oil contains no THC or a negligible amount of THC.

5. Reliability

Another point that many people struggle with has to do with the reliability of the seller of CBD and/or the reliability of the information offered about CBD. That is why we will deal with these two aspects below.

Seller reliability
When purchasing goods online, a common question is: to what extent can the seller be trusted? Are the purchased goods actually delivered? Can I rely on timely delivery? Is payment secure? Etc.

Naturally, this care is not limited to the sale of CBD products. In fact, for each type of webshop, it is wise to check whether you are dealing with a reliable party.

Below is a checklist of things you can look out for to check the reliability of an online CBD store:

Why is CBD oil so expensive? Many people ask themselves this question and that’s not surprising. There is also a good price tag attached to a bottle of CBD oil. CBD oil is becoming more and more popular, but there are people who don’t want to use it because of the price. That CBD oil is expensive, is a fact. But that is not without reason. In addition, the use of CBD can also ensure that certain costs will actually decrease. Curious about this? We are happy to explain!

Why are there so many different prices for the same CBD products?

There are a number of factors that determine the price of products that contain CBD:

  • The production process of CBD

This process is one of the main reasons why products containing CBD oil are expensive. The hemp plants have to be grown and then oil -or other products- can be made from them. This whole process from plant to product takes a lot of time, and certification and independent analyses must also be taken into account. This production process is very time-consuming, so there are already a lot of costs involved.

Why is the CBD oil production process so expensive? (VIDEO)

  1. Breeding high CBD strains. Producers have to breed just the right CBD-rich strain of hemp. Organic soil, special watering cycles in warm sunny places and manual labor all add to the cost.
  2. Extraction and Isolation. The extraction process required to isolate the CBD and other cannabinoids from the hemp plant takes a great deal of setup, as well as expensive equipment.
  3. Documentation. CBD oil is still a grey area within the pharmaceutical world. In order to get the proper documentation and certification, you must go through a whole chain of governmental instances. This is long and can be an expensive process.
  4. Laboratory Testing. CBD oil is tested extensively. These tests can cost a lot of money, because CBD oil is requested to be tested against a lot of different criteria, such as individual cannabinoid contents, terpenes present and many more.
  • The type of CBD oil

There are different types of CBD oil, such as CBD oil with CBD full spectrum extract or Isolate CBD oil. The difference between the two is that Full Spectrum CBD oil uses the whole plant. In Isolate CBD products only contain CBD, no other cannabinoids are present.

  • The percentage of CBD

There are different types of products with different quantities of CBD, this also plays a role in the price. The less CBD the product contains, the cheaper it will be. The most commonly used CBD oil is the oil with 5% CBD (10 ml). For this, you pay on average € 30, -. A bottle with 2.5% CBD is obviously lower in price. The higher the CBD percentage, the more expensive the product will be.

  • The quality of the product or brand

Not every brand has the same quality, and you pay for quality. Organic CBD is, therefore, more expensive than non-organic CBD. There are a number of brands that place the emphasis on quality. Unfortunately, there are also more and more brands that go along with the trend and offer CBD oil for a cheap price. However, this is often bad quality CBD and has only minimal CBD content which is not sufficient for most people. In the article where to buy CBD buy oil, tells you where you can best do this? We will explain this later.

CBD Oil prices: three rules of thumb

  • Cheap CBD oils may not be very safe. They do not go through proper purifying and safety procedures to save on the manufacturing costs.
  • Expensive CBD oils go through proper processing and manufacturing. They are sold using proper channels and are generally backed up by legal agreements. Proper tested CBD oils are better for medicinal purposes as it is guaranteed that no impurities can react with your body.
  • In general – “You get what you pay for”.

Common CBD side effects

We are not going to go over the amazing benefits of using CBD as they are endless, but we will cover its potential side effects. If you are considering using CBD in the form of oil then keep on reading.


Most often you will find good reviews, but occasionally someone experiences adverse side effects. The question is: Are these side effects a result of the CBD itself or just the result of user error? The answer isn’t so straightforward.

Before you decide to start to take CBD, do the research and speak with your healthcare practitioner to cover all of your bases. You should look at the benefits, dosing methods and dosage, additives and of course the risks involved with taking CBD.

How to protect yourself

There are many different CBD products on the market, each with different additive, purity, and potency factors. Unfortunately, some companies are only wanting to cash in on the CBD business, by providing low quality products that may have synthetic additives.

The best way to avoid these additives is to look for a company that provides total transparency about their product. Even though CBD is not regulated by the health ministries, legitimate and proffessional CBD producers pay for  third-party labtests and make them public. These tests generally look at the quality of the CBD oil and provide information regarding potency, cannabinoid and terpene profiles, and purity.

When purchasing a CBD product, you should have full access to a list of ingredients and any third-party test results.

CBD Side effects

There is still a lot of research to be done concerning the side effects of CBD. This makes it slightly difficult to give a definitive answer. When you look for online reviews, you will find lots of positive responses about the amazing benefits of CBD. But ever so often, you will find a complaint or warning of side effects. Generally, these side effects are mild and are usually simple to resolve.

To help you make an educated decision, below is a list the most commonly reported side effects related to CBD. These are some of the experiences of other users or taken from relevant studies.

Dry Mouth

Dry mouth is sometimes present. Luckily, it is easily manageable by consuming plenty of water before, during and after your CBD consumption. In general, it is important to remember to drink enough water daily, so staying hydrated carries a clear advantage for a variety of reasons.

A Drop in Blood Pressure

Some studies have shown that higher doses of CBD have caused a small drop in blood pressure, so for those who are taking medication for low blood pressure, it is important for them to consult with their doctor before consuming CBD. Low blood pressure is often tied with a feeling of lightheaded, which can be uncomfortable for many.


Although CBD is commonly considered a good way to ward off nausea, some people report an upset stomach or feeling nauseous as a side effect. Because our digestive tract is so delicately balanced, there are several reasons this could happen.  Too much CBD can easily lead to nausea and results in loss of appetite. Luckily, the fix to this problem is pretty simple. Just take less CBD, smaller doses and less frequently.


CBD effects everyone a bit differently. For some, CBD is giving energy and focus, but for others, it can produce the opposite. In high doses, some people have reported feeling drowsy after taking CBD. If this is how it affects you be sure not to take your dosage when you have to be most active.

Feeling lightheaded

One of CBD’s more temporary possible side effects,  feeling lightheaded, which is often linked with a drop in blood pressure, can be easily managed by consuming some sort of caffeinated beverage, which will help to regulate your body back to normal, (a cup of tea or coffee works wonders).


Contrary to the previous effects, some users report that CBD makes them feel restless. Of course, extra energy is not necessarily a bad thing, but for people who want to treat insomnia or use CBD to help them sleep, restlessness is frustrating. Sometimes, higher doses are needed to help users get the “sleepy” effects they’re looking for.


Rarely, someone may report having headaches after using CBD oil.  Some people chose CBD  as an alternative to migraine medications, and many studies have shown that cannabis has the potential to reduce inflammation and pain due to headaches.

It is likely that an increased dose can result in negative effects. Generally, there is no reason to increase your dose if you are already experiencing the desired effects. If you suddenly start experiencing mild side effects after an increased dose, that is a telltale sign that your dose is too high.

Increased Tremors in Parkinson’s Disease

There is significant evidence that CBD oil may help with motor impairment, rigidity, difficulty sleeping, tremors, and other symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. CBD is shown to have neuroprotective effects that help reduce the severity of these symptoms. However, some users report that CBD actually increases tremors due to Parkinson’s disease. There is not much scientific evidence to explain this reaction. It is important to talk with your doctor when using CBD oil for treating chronic illness.

We can not recommend to take CBD if you are on blood thinning medication, read more here.

Does CBD oil have THC?

Different ways to take CBD Oil


Cannabidiol and its influence on your sleep cycle

The vast majority of people suffering from sleeping disorders neglect their issues for years. Why is that?

Difficulty getting into sleep, having trouble sleeping? Or waking up early: a large group of people experience problems sleeping, often referred to as sleeping disorders. A good night’s sleep is not only important to function well, but also to prevent health damage. Chronic sleep disorders increase the risk of getting diseases and other health issues. But it also causes reduced energy, concentration and memory problems, and even irritability. On the list of natural remedies that are used to battle sleeping disorders, CBD oil is getting increasingly important.

Most individuals with sleeping problems considered these to have an impact on their daily functioning, with family life most affected in the Western European sample, personal activities in the US sample and professional activities in the Japanese sample.


Sleeping problems neglected by most people

Almost half of the individuals with sleep problems had never taken any steps to resolve them, and the majority of respondents had not spoken with a physician about their problems.

It is especially the women who have sleep problems. Women generally sleep a little longer than men, but they have more difficulties getting into sleep, and use more sleep medication than men, according to this study.11 percent of women in the age group 41 to 65 years use sleep medication vs. 4.6 percent of the men, in the age group 65+ this is even 17.5 percent of women vs. 6.1 percent of men.

Medication and sleeping disorders

Not everyone is keen to use sleeping pills. They can help you sleep better for one or a few days, but sleeping medication also has many disadvantages. For example, they have side effects such as drowsiness during the day and can cause concentration problems. They increase the risk of falling  (elderly people) and therefore increase the risk of fractures. In any case, general practitioners are careful when prescribing these so-called benzodiazepines because you get used/hooked to them quickly. If you use them every day for a week, the effect decreases. So you need more and more sleeping tablets to be able to sleep. In short: within a few weeks, you become addicted and dependent on such a drug. Doctors only recommend them if the need is very high and then only for a few days or temporarily.

Natural resources against sleeping disorders

Natural substances such as melatonin, chamomile, and valerian have been sold for years in the fight against insomnia. Relatively new in this list is cannabidiol or CBD oil as a natural tranquilizer. In the endocannabinoid system in the brain, the brain produces a type of marijuana that is native to the body: endocannabinoid 2-AG (arachidonoylglycerol), a protein-created substance that has the same effect as THC, the active component in marijuana. The brain produces another type of marijuana, anandamide. The exact role of both substances is not clear, but this includes the regulation of appetite, pain sensation, memory and anxiety. And a lack of it can cause complaints such as concentration disorders, insomnia and restlessness.

Can CBD help you sleep better?

Although further scientific research is needed into the functioning of the endocannabinoid system, CBD seems to be a natural alternative to prescription sleep aids. CBD generally does not cause any side effects and can be used by almost anyone.

Thank you for introducing me to The Real CBD! I have had a great response to the drops with reduced inflammation in my knees. I can now play tennis without worrying about having to have recovery days and taking ibuprofen to ease the pain!

  • I am sleeping so well.
  • I definitely feel much calmer.
  • I used to suffer from headaches from tension in my neck and shoulders.  Using the oil has completely reduced the tension and I rarely suffer from headaches these days plus it is saving me a fortune on massages!

Pippa – Costa del Sol

I am one of what I believe to be many of your success stories. I thought it important to share this so people who are not sure, can know of my great joy. I have been using the CBD Oil for 4 months now. I have had incredible results with the inflammation in my hands and feet due to arthritis. For some time my hands were quite painful and swollen and I was unable to use them as normal. The pain in my feet made walking difficult. I was unable to sew, knit or crochet which I missed. This has all changed and I am once again happily making projects, walking with more comfort and no longer having the terrible pain and inflammation. I know it has helped many of my friends and would recommend it highly for those who have not found any other results for similar problems. Your web site is very informative and your on-line chats of great help. Thank you for producing this great product. I am a very happy customer. Kindest regards, Nancy Louer

Nancy Louer

It’s really working! I’ve been on steroids and antibiotics for 5 years for my chronic sinus issues which caused swelling in my nose.  The steroids I was taking helped stop the swelling but with 15mg CBD I could breathe normally and my hands are much less swollen after just 4 nights without steroids. This might be my cure!
