There are many questions that come daily from our readers and users.
They are looking for information about the characteristics of CBD, how to take it, the effects and in some cases even possible addictions. With this article we want to clarify several points.
How long does CBD remain inside the human body?
The parameter that technically indicates the duration or “permanence” of a substance in our body, is called half-life, that is the time required to reduce by 50% the plasma concentration of the substance. Obviously everything depends on the way CBD is taken, to date research on CBD reports 27-35 hours for inhalation administration and 2-5 days for oral administration.
Once taken, after how long does it take to take effect?
The scientific literature states that the “fastest” effect is obtained through inhalation administration (5-10 minutes), while for oral administration an increase in plasma concentration of CBD starts to occur after 1 hour reaching the peak after about 3 hours; then it starts to be eliminated through feces and urine. In one study it was reported that the peak of CBD in urine after oral administration above 150 mg occurred after 6 hours. It could therefore be inferred that the effect of CBD may last for at least 6 hours.
There are many users who have raised the issue of addiction, can CBD create one?
The scientific literature to date has not demonstrated problems of abuse or physical dependence in both animal and human related to CBD intake.
The World Health Organization report published specifies that cannabidiol does not cause side effects on our health but, rather, current evidence clearly points to its potential application in the medical field.
According to the report, cannabidiol (CBD) is safe and well-tolerated in humans (and animals), and is not associated with any adverse public health effects. The expert panel also stated that CBD does not induce physical dependence and is “not associated with potential abuse.” Likewise, to date, there is no evidence of the occurrence of public health problems associated with CBD use.
What is the difference between the three types of oils?
The three types of oils do not present any substantial difference. The main difference lies solely in the percentage of cannabidiol in the solution.
Depending on the needs there are those who prefer to take 3 drops of CBD oil at 10% and those who, instead, prefer to take 10 drops of CBD oil at 3%. What changes is the pleasantness of the intake, calculated on subjective preference.
Why do you have a cosmetic line?
Cannabidiol (CBD) possesses qualities that make it ideal for the preparation of cosmetic products. CBD, in fact, is able to prevent and counteract multiple pathological conditions and skin diseases, including eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. CBD is also endowed with an excellent antioxidant power, ideal for preventing skin aging.
In addition, cannabidiol contributes to the regulation of skin sebum, making it an ally in fighting acne. Hemp seed oil, with which the products of cosmetic line are made, is an ingredient already well known in the world of cosmetics, thanks to the presence of fatty acids such as Omega 3 and Omega 6.
Hemp seed oil gives the products emollient properties, which acting in depth, help to preserve the skin from redness, irritation and inflammation, dehydration and the action of external atmospheric agents. These properties act in parallel with those of cannabidiol, thus achieving a naturally effective action on our skin.
Finally, there are also vitamins C and E, with important antioxidant properties, which slow down the processes of cellular aging and depression of the immune system, eliminating free radicals.
What are the different ways to take CBD?
Oil, crystals, capsules, eliquids, cosmetics. The big difference between the different products lies exclusively in the form in which CBD is presented, and therefore in its mode of intake.
The oils for example, the best known of the “group” are used for their effective and rapid action on the body, given by sublingual intake. CBD oil can be taken both orally and through the skin.
Crystals, instead, are preferably taken through a vaporizer suitable for the purpose, able to control the temperature. Eliquids, characterized by the presence of a natural aroma, are indicated to enjoy the pleasure of vaping.
Is CBD psychoactive?
CBD, unlike THC, has no psychotropic activity; on the contrary, many studies show that it can counteract or reduce the negative effects of THC.
Research suggests that rather than defining Cannabidiol as a non-psychoactive substance, it should be defined as not intoxicating, because despite its remarkable effects on the brain, it seems to lack those characteristics which could turn it into a substance capable of giving phenomena of abuse or dependence.
