Find Out About CBD

Here we answer some common questions about CBD.

CBD is being researched for a multitude of benefits both medicinal and otherwise. We cannot and do not claim that any benefit can be derived from the consumption of CBD, however, we suggest everyone to explore the academic literature on the subject.bus leo.

How much CBD should I take?

This is just one of the many questions we get asked on a frequent basis. In this guide, we will be answering a range of frequently asked questions, helping you to gain a better understanding of how to use CBD products. There’s nothing worse than purchasing a CBD product and having no idea how to get the most out of it.

What CBD Dosage Can You Use?

We are all individuals and as such may require different approaches, so it is important to allow your body to be its own best doctor – this is only a guideline and some people require a slower approach, increasing every fortnight. It is recommended that you start small with CBD oil before gradually increasing the dosage. This approach allows you to tailor the amount of CBD oil that will fit your personal needs without confusing or overloading your endocannabinoid system. You shouldn’t rush straight into taking the highest possible dosage of CBD oil.

To re-iterate, it is always best to start low and slow to allow the endocannabinoid system to adjust to your CBD intake.

How long does it take for CBD to work?

It can take up to a few weeks for the endocannabinoid system to react, but overdoing the cannabis oil is also unhelpful as it confuses the cannabinoid receptors in the body. Start with a low dose every time, do not be tempted because you feel your condition is particularly bad to start with a higher dose, this simply floods the system and will not work.

Will CBD show up on a drug test?

Some CBD products are not regulated for purity and safety, and the amount of THC is a lot more than recommended (0.2%). All products sold by CBD Connect Ltd have a THC content of zero or below the legal amount of 0.2%. In trace amounts, this is not enough to get you high and should not show up on a drug test.

If you are concerned about failing a drug test, we would recommend seeking out CBD products that are THC free. When looking for products that are THC free, if it is not labelled on the packaging or in the description, look for products that are made with broad-spectrum CBD or isolate CBD. In these products, all the THC has been removed.

You may fail the drug test if you are a frequent marijuana user. Again, marijuana is different from CBD. If you choose the right CBD product with no THC, it should not show up in the test. You may fail the test if you consume CBD with other drugs that interact with CBD.

Why Do CBD Dosages Vary?

We are all individuals and as such may require different approaches, so it is important to allow your body to be its own best doctor – this is only a guideline and some people require a slower approach, increasing every fortnight. It is recommended that you start small with CBD oil before gradually increasing the dosage. This approach allows you to tailor the amount of CBD oil that will fit your personal needs without confusing or overloading your endocannabinoid system. You shouldn’t rush straight into taking the highest possible dosage of CBD oil.

To re-iterate, it is always best to start low and slow to allow the endocannabinoid system to adjust to your CBD intake.

CBD = Cannabidol

Cannabidol (CBD) is a chemical compound found naturally in plants in the cannabis family. Varieties of these plants include Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica, and many others.

Will CBD Get Me High?

No. The substance responsible for intoxication during the recreational use of marijuana is THC, short for Tetrahydrocannabinol. Many CBD products contains little to no THC and are therefore not considered to be psychoactive.

How can I take CBD?

CBD can be ingested in a multitude of ways, and this list is by no means meant to be exhaustive:

Ingestion

CBD can enter your digestive tract in the form of capsules, beverages, foods, and other things that you eat. As with all substances taken orally, some of the doses are inevitably lost to stomach acid, meaning if you switch to an oral route, or switch away from one, you may notice changes in the effects that you feel.

Sublingual

Sublingual just means under the tongue. As the tongue has one of the highest blood supplies of the entire body it can rapidly absorb CBD. To use this method, take a CBD containing product in the form of an oil, tincture, or extract, and apply it directly under the tongue, holding it there for about a minute and a half before swallowing.

Topical

Some creams, salves, and lotions are meant to be applied directly to the skin and are absorbed by the skin, as well as the blood vessels near the skin.

Inhalation

Perhaps the most common way to take CBD is through inhalation, by vaporizer (a fancy term for a vape). Since it absorbs directly into the lungs, the inhalation route is faster than ingestion and is much faster than many other options.

How to Use CBD Oil

CBD Oil and CBD containing products are generally safe, as long as you are not allergic to any of the components and follow all instructions on the packaging.

When you are choosing a CBD oil there are several things to keep in mind. You should spend time researching the company that produces the products. Alternatively you could use The CBD connect to purchase your CBD Products as we only use reputable suppliers. CBD products should be:

  • Organic and Non-GMO
  • High in CBD, and with very low THC (less than 0.2%)
  • Free of THC, while leaving the full spectrum of non-psychoactive cannabinoids, including Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabinol (CBN), and others.
  • Independently Lab Verified, with confirmable analysis.
  • Clear on dosing, with specific recommendations.
  • Extracted using safe and reliable techniques such as CO2 Extraction.

COMPANIES THAT PRODUCE CBD

When looking for a company that produces CBD related products, you also want to be able to verify that:

  • The company is free from recent recalls
  • The company has a good reputation
  • The company has passed all applicable certifications and possesses the appropriate licenses for the jurisdiction in which they are operating.
  • The company has good consumer reviews, and that the people reviewing are real.
  • The company is well known

How CBD can transform your life?

Pain relief

Many people suffer from some form of pain, especially chronic back pain, which is quite common after you reach middle age. CBD oil impacts pain receptors in your brain, reducing sensitivity and allowing you to cope better with your ailments. Multiple studies have shown that CBD helps relieve symptoms caused by conditions such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, muscle pain, and spinal cord injuries.

Anxiety relief

CBD has been successfully used to treat anxiety and stress-related problems. The human body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is composed of neurotransmitters that interact with Cannabinoid Receptors (CR) and is involved in regulating physiological and mental processes. CBD also binds to the CRs, boosting the effectiveness of your body’s endocannabinoids and activating serotonin receptors in your brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that regulates mood, among other things. CBD acts as an anti-depressant, but it is a natural alternative and does not create addiction.

Sleep problems

As it fights anxiety, CBD can also treat insomnia and combat daytime sleepiness. Research indicates people who take CBD sleep better.

Quick Facts

How quickly is CBD absorbed by my body?

Depending on the means of ingestion, effects can be near immediate to a few hours, with most people feeling the effects within 10 minutes. The most rapid means of ingestions is inhalation (through vaping), and the slowest is via skin absorption in salves and creams.

Will CBD show up in a drug test?

Again, it depends on the amount of THC present in the CBD products you consume. Many CBD products are not regulated for purity and safety, and the amount of THC is a lot more than recommended (0.02%). In the event you consume CBD products with less than 0.02% THC, it will not show up in the drug test. Here are some factors that must be taken into account:

  • You may fail the drug test if you are a frequent marijuana user. Again, marijuana is different from CBD. If you choose the right CBD product having less THC, it will not show up in the test.
  • You may fail the test if you consume CBD with other drugs that interact with CBD.

Benefits of CBD?

Although there are already hundreds of studies on CBD out there, research into the effects of cannabinoids is still in its infancy. Here are some of the most powerful benefits of CBD:

Protects against neurodegenerative disorders

Researchers believe CBD can help people suffering from neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, and MS, by reducing free radical damage and inflammation and by protecting brain cells. A recent study has been looking into the ability of CBD to stimulate brain cell production, to replace those destroyed by Alzheimer’s disease.

Promotes heart health

CBD acts as a natural treatment for high blood pressure, which is the main cause of many cardiovascular diseases.

Anti-seizure treatment

There is already ample proof that cannabidiol can reduce seizures in epilepsy, improving the lives of many patients who were in a desperate situation.

Anti-acne remedy

One of the main properties of CBD is to reduce inflammation, which is why it can be effectively used as an anti-acne remedy.

Cancer Support

Research into CBD’s capacity to fight cancerous cells is still ongoing, but studies have shown that this compound can alleviate cancer symptoms and help patients deal with the side-effects of cancer treatment.

Allergies

If you suffer from any kind of serious allergies please fully read the label and check the ingredients before use. If you have any major concerns and not sure how to proceed please consult your GP or a medical professional.

Many people notice allergic reactions that may occur from any kind of product that our body sees as an allergen. Some of the common allergies occur from pet dander, pollen, insect stings, medications, and foods. As you already know the CBD is derived from the cannabis plant, you may feel some allergic reactions since the CBD has some properties such as histamine and pollen. Though it has been noticed rarely, some people may be susceptible to allergies. CBD has been proven to help with allergies that are caused due to anti-allergic and antihistamine properties.

Now, allergic reactions differ from person to person. Some may notice breathing problems, while others could just feel an itchy nose. If you notice any kind of allergic reaction, it is recommended to stop using the CBD products immediately to avoid any kind of negative side effects. Please read the product label carefully before using it. Also, it is important to know the difference between exhibiting side effects of CBD and being allergic to CBD. These are two separate things so make sure you are familiar with the different symptoms of both.

Doing some extra research will help you make the most out of your CBD product.
