What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol and is an active compound which is called cannabinoids. They are found in the hemp plant, the sister of the marajuana plant and are known to work naturally with your body's endocannabinoid system. CBD has many uses but getting “high” is not one of them - it actually has many health benefits!
How does CBD work?
We all have an endocannabinoid system which has lots of tiny receptors that attach themselves to your nervous system. CBD has an effect on mood, pain and everyday experience by connecting to these receptors. High quality CBD can help stimulate receptors which has many benefits to overall health and well-being.
What does CBD do?
CBD has been shown to be effective for anxiety, stress, depression, and physical ailments such arthiritis and joint pain. There is no shortage of research to back up these claims, either.
High quality CBD supports our bodies’ natural endocannabinoid system. In essence, CBD consumption is similar to any other supplement we take - it naturally supports and encourages what our bodies are already doing but enhances it. Cannabinoids in CBD products help maintain a natural balance to support your mind and body’s wellness. In addition to CBD treating multiple forms of epilepsy, it is also effective for anxiety, stress, depression, and physical pain. There is no shortage of scientific research to support these claims.
The difference between CBD Oil and Hemp Oil
CBD and hemp are from the same plant but different parts and they have different uses. Hemp oil is nourishing and contains a blend of nutrients perfect for skincare, cooking and supplementation. CBD oil is from the plant flowers, leaves and stem and has a higher level of cannabinoids which has higher health benefits.
Where to start with CBD?
When starting to use CBD it is best to start with small doses and gradually increase your daily intake. CBD comes in many different forms such as capsules, oils, sprays or edibles, it is up to your personal preference on how you consume CBD.
Find the best form of CBD for you
CBD Oil - CBD oil is a daily supplement to help with a variety of health issues. CBD drops are easy and effective to administer your daily dose and are the most popular as they are usually a purer form of CBD.
CBD Spray - CBD Sprays are quick, easy and convenient for fitting CBD products into your daily life. CBD Sprays are similar to CBD oils in the way that they promote quick absorption.
CBD Capsule - CBD capsules offer the benefits of CBD, but in an easy-to-take form. CBD capsules are still a high quality product and are much more familiar to us to take on a daily basis.
CBD Edibles - CBD edibles are proven to help with lots of health issues or just daily health in general. CBD edibles are a great way to consume your daily intake easily and discreetly in a tasty chewable form.
How can our CBD oil drops be taken?
CBD oils are to be used orally, it is recommended to put a drop of oil under your tongue for 90 seconds. This gives your body time to absorb the CBD into your mucus membranes.
How often should I take CBD?
Each different method of taking CBD delivers different benefits based on strength and consumption type. There is no right or wrong but most people consume it twice a day. It also depends on why you are using a CBD product, for example, to aid your sleep it would be more beneficial to take it an hour before bed more so than during the day.
CBD needs time to build up in your body, it is to be best taken regularly and consistently. To get your body to a balanced level f CBD content, we recommend taking two doses daily or lots of micro doses throughout the day. It is recommended to start with a small dose and slowly increase your daily dose to find the optimal amount yourself.
What makes high quality CBD and what should you look for when buying a CBD product?
- Extraction Method - High quality CBD oils are extracted through safe methods. The best extraction method is a cold pressed extraction followed by CO₂ extraction. This ensures the product is clean and is free of any additives or additional chemicals. The cold pressed extraction will also extract terpenes and botanicals from the plant which have a great deal of benefits that aren’t present in non-cold pressed products.
- COA - A Certificate of Analysis is a document issued by Quality Assurance that confirms that a regulated product meets its product specification. CBD products are no different and should contain the actual results obtained from testing performed as part of quality control of an individual batch of a product. Make sure that the COA is clearer testing for heavy metals, toxins and pesticides in the product at least.
- Price - High quality CBD oils aren't cheap. If the price seems too good to be true that's a strong indicator or its quality or that it was made from inferior or contaminated raw materials, sub-standard solvents, or it doesn't contain very much, if any, actual CBD. There are many companies that have the same product, but have a different label on the product to make it look different.
- Organic - Try and buy organic CBD products where possible. Manufacturers creating certified organic CBD products often means that the company takes the product quality very seriously. Which can only be a positive for consumers. There are some products that claim to grow the hemp in organic conditions which can be true. But use your common sense as getting product certified organic takes time and money so small brands can’t afford the process.
Does CBD get you high? Will I get addicted?
CBD does not have any mind altering effects and is non-psychoactive, which means it will not get you high. It does come from cannabis but the CBD products do not contain THC - the chemical which does get you high and is addictive. All our CBD products have a COA and certified THC-free.
Is CBD Legal?
CBD is only legal in the UK if the products are THC free or contain less than 0.2% of THC. Anything above this level is a controlled substance under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. So, every product on Rebootcbdstore.com is under the legal parameters.
