Dosing CBD is a relatively inexact science, since everybody metabolizes differently. Our suggestion is to start low and go up as needed. Some people experiences the best CBD effects at a lower dose and some experience the best effects at a higher dose. Start by using the recommended dose, and adjust as needed. There is no unsafe amount of SuperNature CBD.
There are questions about cannabidiol (CBD) that we get asked frequently, so we decided to put together a list of CBD FAQs for those of you who want to learn more about this cannabinoid, its properties and effects. If there is anything we didn't cover here, just ask!
CBD studies are currently in progress all around the world. CBD is being studied as a compound with potential benefits for pain relief, sleep, anxiety, and inflammation. Importantly, CBD helps to promote health in the endocannabinoid system, which has been linked to a number of vital processes in the body. In our experience, CBD as a daily supplement has been useful for assisting in general health, pain relief, stress relief, and life balance.
CBD is extracted and separated from specific varieties of cannabis, often known as hemp. Chemically, CBD is one of 100+ chemical substances known as cannabinoids, which are all found in the cannabis plant. CBD is the typically the most abundant compound in hemp, representing up to 40% of the plant.
Because our oils are extracted from hemp, you might hear this type of product referred to in a few ways: CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp-derived CBD oil, CBD-rich cannabis oil, or full spectrum hemp extracts. CBD oil is different from typical hempseed oil sold cheaply in the grocery store because CBD hemp oil is an extraction of all aerial parts of the hemp plant, instead of only the seeds. This method of extraction produces a nutritionally robust oil.
More research is needed to figure out the total effects this compound has on our bodies. Studies have shown the existence of a system of cell receptors in your body, called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which spreads throughout the connective tissues and even into your organs. The cannabis family of plants contains compounds which interact specifically with this system and provide nutritional and therapeutic value that is unavailable to most other plants.
Cannabinoids are the primary chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant and there are more than 100 identified cannabinoids. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most well-known cannabinoid produced by the cannabis plant and is the ONLY intoxicating cannabinoid. Of the 100+ non-intoxicating cannabinoids, Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most widely known.
No. Unlike THC, CBD does not cause a high. CBD is an advantageous daily staple item since there are minimal side effects.
SuperNature CBD is considered a full spectrum hemp product. This means that our products provide a full cannabinoid profile that utilizes several different cannabinoids including trace amounts of THC below the federal legal limit of 0.3%.
The cannabis plant consists of a wide variety of chemicals and compounds. About 140 of these belong to a large class of aromatic organic hydrocarbons known as terpenes (pronounced tur-peens).
Terpenes, unlike cannabinoids, are responsible for the aroma of cannabis. The FDA and other agencies have generally recognized terpenes as “safe.” Terpenes act on receptors and neurotransmitters; they are prone to combine with or dissolve in lipids or fats; they act as serotonin uptake inhibitors (similar to antidepressants like Prozac); they enhance norepinephrine activity (similar to tricyclic antidepressants like Elavil); they increase dopamine activity; and they augment GABA (the “downer” neurotransmitter that counters glutamate, the “upper”). However, more specific research is needed for improved accuracy in describing and predicting how terpenes in cannabis can be used medicinally to help treat specific ailments/health conditions.
Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two main ingredients in the cannabis plant. Both CBD and THC belong to a unique class of compounds known as cannabinoids.
THC is probably best known for being the intoxicating ingredient in marijuana. CBD, however, is non-intoxicating. In other words - CBD can’t get you high.
THC is known to cause some people to feel anxious or paranoid. CBD is believed to have the opposite effect.
While most countries have strict laws surrounding marijuana and THC, the legal status of CBD is less clear. The FDA of the United States considers hemp oil (and it’s derivative CBD) to be a nutritional item (not a medication), since they are derived from industrial hemp plants. If you live in the US, this means you don’t need a prescription and can legally purchase and consume Cannabidiol in any state.
We recommend storing our products in a cool, dry location, out of open sunlight. The typical medicine cabinet or pantry should be fine.
Currently, the USDA is not granting organic certifications to hemp companies. Our hemp is grown to organic standards, and we will strive to achieve certification as soon as it is possible.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.
There are two main types of receptors in the ECS, CB1, and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system and brains of mammals, and CB2 are generally found in the peripheral nervous system. There are two main cannabinoids mammals produce - 2AG and Anandamide (named after the Sanskrit term “Ananda” which translates to “bliss”).
For hundreds of millions of years every vertebrate on Earth has been equipped with this ECS, a crucial system in the body, and it has been known about in the scientific and medical communities since the 1980’s. However, it’s still not taught about in most medical schools.
SuperNature CBD products contain trace amounts of THC, less than 0.3% which is the federal allowable legal limit. This ingredient may cause a false positive on certain drug tests. Exercise caution when using any CBD product.
The shelf life of CBD oil is 2 years.
