What is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a natural cannabinoid contained in the plants of the cannabis family. Both hemp and marijuana belong to this same cannabis plant family, but they are two distinct plants (technically, not taxonomically) with different CBD content.


Marijuana contains both CBD and quite a bit of THC. THC is an illegal substance in most states and countries as it causes an addictive high and has a potent psychoactive effect.


Industrial hemp, on the other hand, contains very little THC and a lot more CBD.


Patients who want the combined effects of THC and CBD to medicate their symptoms prefer high-CBD marijuana strains, while patients who want to medicate only with the non-psychoactive CBD prefer high-CBD hemp oil.


Where Does CBD Come From?
CBD is extracted from Industrial Hemp. Our CBD products come from Kentucky which is a producer of Industrial Hemp. The oil is extracted and separated from the hemp plant. CBD is one of 85 chemical substances known as cannabinoids. CBD is the second most abundant compound found in hemp. This is an all-natural product.

CBD is completely separated and isolated from THC and CBD can’t get you high, it is still misunderstood by many people. These concerns are unfounded but understandable because of the terminology around CBD and can confusing.


How Can CBD Benefit You?

CBD has many of the same beneficial medicinal effects as THC.


Studies on CBD and THC as medicine are quite recent, but there is already enough evidence to support that CBD can…

  • Reduce Nausea (helps people undergoing chemotherapy)
  • Improve Appetite
  • Relieve Pain
  • Reduce Inflammation
  • Reduce Stress and Anxiety

There is also a lot of research currently done on the effects of CBD on cancer, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and asthma, but so far, results have not been conclusive. Anti-cancer effects of CBD were seen in mice whose tumors were injected with the substance.


Keep in touch with the latest cannabidiol research for the newest information on its health benefits.


How Long Does CBD Take to Work?

CBD generally can take from a few minutes to a couple of hours to work properly, depending on the dosage, the method of consumption and the symptom you want to medicate.


Taking your CBD sublingually is the second fastest method of absorption, giving you relief within minutes.


Applying CBD products topically leads to relatively slow and uniform absorption, ensuring that the skin remains moisturized and receives CBD’s benefits over a longer period of time.


Eating it takes longer, from 20 minutes to an hour, depending on how much you ate before and how long ago your last meal was. It is best to take CBD oil on an empty stomach for faster effect.


If you put your CBD oil in a drink or food, you have to wait longer for the effects, but you are also safe from side effects like headaches and dysphoria.


The strength of the effect depends on how much of a dosage you take and what you want to medicate.


Don’t depend on how long it takes others to feel the effects of CBD.


Everybody is different and reacts differently to CBD oils. The only way to know for sure how fast and how strong CBD works for you is to experiment.


Remember: Always start with low dosages first, and work yourself up slowly. Let your physician know before you start taking CBD, especially if you suffer from chronic illness and take medication.


How Much CBD Do I Need?

Depending on your ailment, you’ll need a different cannabidiol dosage depending on your symptoms. Also, each body reacts differently to CBD. Some people are extremely sensitive and need very little while, in rare cases, some don’t feel effects even with powerful dosages. Each person is unique, and you need to find your own sweet spot.


Still, there are some average numbers that can help you determine how much CBD you might want to start with.


Doses are best measured as pure mg of CBD, because each bottle has a different concentration.


It is safest to always start really low (2-3 mgs) and work yourself up to the recommended dosage. As soon as your symptoms are gone, you need to stop increasing the dose; if your symptoms worsen, discontinue use or lower your dose.


Where Can I Find High-Quality CBD Oil?

It is safest to stick to CBD-only vendors like ours, Veterans Botanicals, who invest in third-party lab tests and provide only reputable, US-manufactured products.


Hemp oil is expensive to produce with purity and quality, so you should steer clear from any suspiciously cheap offers and products, as they may contain substances you don’t want to ingest.
