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”.

The so-called ‘regular’ medicines often have a strict dosage. This is to prevent poisoning or aggravation of side effects. Too much is never good with medication. A too high dose of Tramadol (heavy painkiller) for example is just life-threatening. At valium, they even give the warning that it is extremely addictive.  What about the dosage of pure CBD oil?

Before going over to the contents of this article, we just wanted to clarify that this blog post is an extension to: Which CBD dosage should I take?

CBD oil dosage

 

Although it says on the bottle that you should not exceed the daily recommended amount, the question here is whether there is an overdose that is bad for you. Let your body get used to it. It is absolutely important to get your body used to the CBD. If you use CBD oil for too short a period, the question is whether the effect is noticeable. To say after a week that it does not work does not make any sense. Your body has to get used to the oil.

The endocannabinoid system in your body responds to the CBD oil that supports that system. It probably took years that you have developed all sorts of complaints, so give your body time to support the CBD through the endocannabinoid system your body.

 

The best procedure

 

Every person is different. No one will respond the same to the CBD oil. No one will respond the same to a certain standard dose. Although there is a recommended dosage on the bottle, this dosage differs per brand.

CBD oil dosage

 

Follow this procedure if you are just starting with CBD oil

 

Start with 1 or 2 drops, 3 times a day. Increase the dosage for 3-4 weeks

Divide the dose over 3 intake moments per day:

  • Morning
  • Afternoon
  • Evening

CBD Oil: Ways to take

 

The best way to take CBD oil is to drip under the tongue. The active cannabinoids are then directly absorbed by the mucous membrane. This is a very efficient way of CBD dosing. When you swallow it, only 15% of the total active substance will remain and the effect will be less. When ingested, it enters your digestive system and through the liver in your blood. A large part of the active substances will then be broken down by your body before it has an effect. Keep that in mind. CBD is also available in capsules and, for example, in suppositories. With a suppository, it comes faster in your blood than with a capsule. Inhaling via an e-cigarette is also a possibility. See what is the best way for you. The method of intake is a preference that differs per person. Again under the tongue is the best way, because the oil is quickly absorbed through small blood vessels under the tongue. So then the active substance is very quickly in your blood where it can do its job.

Overdose is not possible with CBD oil. The amount of active substance will be greater, but that has no effect on its effect or the effect in your body and it is certainly not fatal. Always listen carefully to your body. Maintaining a list of your symptoms, in the beginning, can be a good way to gain insight, but also in the course after taking CBD oil. If you feel that it does not work, ask for advice from an expert. On the internet, there are all kinds of forums CBD, where a lot of knowledge can be found and where you can ask your question too.

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 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.

1970 cannabis vs. 2018 cannabis – A world of difference!

They came in kilo bricks. By boat, in trucks, and in cargo planes, pounds of dried-up flakes and pieces of cannabis plants worked their way up from Colombia to be distributed and sold throughout the world. While cannabis has been a part of some cultures since day one, cannabis today is certainly not what it used to be. Not only has the industry changed, but so have the plant’s potency and general appearance.
