FAQ

1. What exactly is CBD/Canabidiol?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a trending ingredient the natural products industry and is the focus of a new area of cannabis research. CBD is one of many cannabinoids, or molecules produced uniquely by the cannabis family. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, the primary psychoactive element in marijuana), CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t have a strong effect on cognitive brain activity and doesn’t cause the “high” associated with marijuana.
Every variety of the cannabis family produces cannabinoids, including hemp. While CBD and THC are the most well-known cannabinoids, there are many different types, and only recently have significant resources been poured into their study. Our brains have specific receptors designed to accept cannabinoids, known as CB1 and CB2. These receptors are responsible for the assimilation of cannabinoid molecules into your system, resulting in the psychoactive and immune responses correlated with cannabis consumption.
2. What exactly is CBD oil/CBD extract/Hemp flower extract?
CBD oil is a natural extract obtained from hemp flowers. It is characterized by the predominant amount of CBD in the composition, not THC-in Poland, the maximum allowable concentration of THC is 0.2%. The extract is obtained by means of three basic methods: extraction using solvents such as butane, hexane, ethanol or isopropyl. extraction with supercritical carbon dioxide the oldest method and at the same time the least efficient or extraction in oil (usually used is olive oil or coconut oil) CBD oils differ mainly in the degree of processing, the cannabinoid profile and the content of terpenes.
3. What is the best way to take CBD?
Most CBD products are taken orally in the form of drops under the tongue, where they should be kept for about a minute and then swallowed. CBD ointments are also effective, which can be successfully replaced with CBD oil during surface treatment, which usually has a higher concentration of CBD – thus exhibiting a stronger surface effect.
4. Is CBD oil legal in my country?
Products containing hemp derived CBD are legal in most european countries (if THC level is under 0,2%). When it comes to non-eu states please check Your local hemp legislation.
5. Is CBD safe?
Yes. CBD is a safe substance. Previous studies, both on humans and on animals, have shown that CBD is a safe compound to use, which also increases its therapeutic potential. CBD was also examined for side effects – no major effects were found except for the slowdown and nausea. Daily doses up to 1500 mg were well tolerated by humans. CBD does not cause narcotic effects in the case of humans and animals. CBD may interact with drugs. CBD is metabolized using the cytochromatic P450 enzymatic system. Therefore, it may affect the increase or decrease in blood levels of metabolites of drugs broken down in the liver. Based on in vitro data, the effect of CBD inhibition of intestinal p-glycoprotein can not be ruled out. Therefore, caution is advised during concomitant treatment with digoxin and other medicinal products that are substrates for p-glycoprotein. Caution should be exercised when using medicinal products that are hypnotic, sedative and have a potential sedative effect due to the possible additive effect on sedatives and to reduce muscle tone.
6. What is the difference between hemp and cannabis?
The main difference is the permissible THC content in the plant. Cannabis is characterized by high concentrations of THC, while the permissible content of THC in hemp varies depending on local legislation from max.0,2% to 0,6%. Cannabis sowing, apart from being a source of legal CBD oil, also constitute material in many branches of industry, eg in the paper, textile, food and even construction industry.
7. Does CBD oil have a psychoactive effect?
The CBD itself does not have a psychoactive effect and the THC level is under 0,2%, so the consumption of CBD oil does not cause a state commonly known as “high”.
8. Why is our Essenz CBD oil green?
The Essenz CBD oil is not subjected to additional treatment after supercritical CO2 extraction. For this reason, all compounds naturally occurring in the plant remain unchanged in our extract. The chlorophyll corresponds to the green color, which in itself carries many theraputic values. Chlorophyll is a substance which according to research has curative properties in the case of anemia. In addition, chlorophyll supports the work of our organs, especially the thyroid and adrenal glands, supports the cleansing of the body and has a strong antioxidant effect.
