CBD oil is a natural essential oil which is extracted from the flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant. It is used by people all over the world as a dietary supplement and for a variety of therapeutic purposes.
CBD can act as a neurotransmitter. Neurotransmitters help to regulate bodily systems at a cellular level. CBD has been shown to have effects on a wide array of systems in the human body, such as the immune system, the nervous system, the endocrine system, the cardiovascular system, the digestive system, the heart, liver, and kidneys, the epidermis and others. CBD is also known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
What is the difference between CBD and hemp?Hemp is a family of cannabis strains which are grown for food and fibers. CBD is a molecular compound found in the plant’s extracts. CanameD CBD is extracted from a proprietary strain of hemp known as PCR hemp — or phytocannabinoid-rich hemp. This proprietary strain is far richer in CBD and other cannabinoids and terpenes than the basic hemp plant used by most CBD producers.
The cannabis plant species can be grown as hemp (which has a weak amount of natural THC — the widely known psychoactive property) or marijuana (which over centuries has been selectively bred for higher and higher THC ). Hemp has been grown for over 5,000 years for its fiber – used for rope, twine, fabric and so on. Since at least 1500 BC, hemp has been widely used as medicine. Many scholars believe that the gall and vinegar, or myrrhed wine, offered to Jesus immediately after the crucifixion was, in all probability, a preparation of hemp. Queen Victoria used hemp extracts for menstrual cramps and anxiety. Her reign from 1837-1901 paralleled the explosive growth of hemp based medicines. From 1842 to 1900, cannabis made up half of all medicines sold. From 1850 to 1937, the U.S. Pharmacopeia listed cannabis as the primary medicine to treat more than 100 separate illnesses or diseases.
Many people use CBD to promote a health state known as homeostasis, the body’s natural tendency to maintain a healthy balance in all its systems. Cannabinoids are an integral part of the human body’s ability to regulate and balance a wide variety of physiological systems. CBD is also used by some to treat particular ailments such as seizure disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders and others
In 2003, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services filed a U.S. patent on CBD (#6630507) that covers CBD treatment for various neurodegenerative and inflammatory disorders. Because of the February 6, 2004, Federal Court Ruling Nos. 03-71366, 03-71693, every US citizen can legally use CBD (extracted from industrial hemp high in CBD without illegal amounts of THC). The American medical community had come to believe (or been “brain washed”) in the years following the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act that cannabis had no use as a medicine. Only now have they come full circle on cannabis, realizing what their predecessors knew 100 years ago. CBD oil is simply the most exciting outcome from this current thinking regarding cannabis. Their belief is that CBD oil is not negative or illegal but that it should be embraced and used for its many health benefits. As a result of his investigative reporting, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN, completely changed his stance on medical marijuana, cannabis and hemp. (Prior to his research, he thought people “needed” medical marijuana to justify getting “high”). Dr. Gupta featured CBD miracle stories in his special documentary series called “Weed” that first aired in 2013. The world was astonished by the people he profiled and the positive effects CBD oil has proven to have on human health. Dr. Mehmet Oz, known from “Oprah” and current host of his own TV show and ABC News Chief, Health and Wellness Editor, Dr. Richard Besser have also been convinced of the beneficial properties of CBD.
Doctors around the world are likely hearing this question with greater frequency due to the number of scientific studies being released each year. If you or someone you love is suffering from diabetes, then you should be asking this question as well. Something as simple as a natural compound from the cannabis plant could help manage blood sugar levels without the side effects that come with many diabetes medications on the market today.
Hemp seed oil is distinct from CBD oil. While CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant’s flowers, hemp seed oil is produced by pressing the plant’s seeds. Hemp seed oil is similar to other seed oils such as corn oil and sesame oil. Hemp seed oil has its own benefits, but it does not contain cannabinoids such as CBD.
There are no known incidences of illness caused by consumption of CBD oil. Also, all CanameD products undergo rigorous testing to guarantee they are free of any potential contaminants.
Hemp and marijuana are both types of cannabis. Marijuana contains a cannabinoid known as THC, which causes a high and is known as a drug. Hemp contains negligible amounts of THC and is unlikely to cause a high. CanameD products undergo a patented process which removes traces of THC from the final product.
Medical cannabis is another term for medical marijuana. Marijuana contains THC, which is a cannabinoid that causes a high. Medical cannabis can cause severe impairments. CBD is not psychotropic, meaning that it does not cause a high. It can be used while working, driving or undertaking any other physical activities such as exercise and sports.
CBD oil has not been approved by the FDA in the treatment of any condition aside from particular seizure disorders. Consult with a qualified medical professional to determine if your condition could benefit from CBD.
The term broad spectrum refers to CBD oil products that contain a combination of cannabinoids, terpenes and other beneficial compounds found in hemp. While many CBD oil products are made using CBD isolate, CanameD broad spectrum oils maintain concentrations of the beneficial compounds that are found in the original hemp plant. Our broad spectrum products contain no detectable THC, as shown on our lab reports.
Full spectrum CBD oil is very similar to broad spectrum CBD — the exception is that full spectrum oil usually retains the trace amounts of THC present in the hemp plant. Legally, though, this amount of THC must always be less than 0.3%.
CanameD CBD products are made with broad spectrum oils which have had traces of THC removed. Our products are extremely unlikely to cause a high.
Some of the effects reported by CBD oil users include improved mood, restful sleep, increased attention and focus and others. However, organic compounds such as CBD can produce different effects in different people. Your results may vary.
There is no record of anyone ever overdosing on CBD. CBD is completely non-toxic. Also, all of CanameD lab reports show that our products have no detectable THC.
The benefits of broad spectrum products are usually greater than the benefits provided by others, such as those containing just CBD isolate. This is due to what’s known as the entourage effect. The entourage effect occurs when compounds in the hemp plant, including cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids, work together to produce even greater effects than just CBD alone. All Canamed products contain broad spectrum CBD oil. However, organic compounds such as CBD can produce different effects in different people. Your results may vary.
Terpenes are a class of volatile hydrocarbon compounds produced in the flower clusters of the cannabis plant. Terpenes are what give cannabis its distinct aromas and have been utilized by humans for millennia in aromatherapy. Terpenes are recognized as safe for human consumption by the Food and Drug Association and are used in a wide variety of food and cosmetic products.
A CBD tincture is a preparation made from CBD extract. It is used orally (swallowed) and can also be used in cooking or baking. Our tinctures do not contain alcohol, although many traditional tinctures do.
CBD is non-toxic. We have never heard of anyone overdosing on CBD. However, extremely large servings of CBD may cause drowsiness.
CanameD offers some of the most potent CBD products available. However, the amount of CBD in CanameD products varies from product to product. Please refer to the product label for exact concentrations of CBD in each product.
CBD can be taken multiple times each day, or at particular times of day, depending on the reason it is being used.
CBD is not known to have any negative side effects. However, large servings of CBD may cause drowsiness. If your intention is to remain alert, this may be considered an unwanted side effect and therefore large servings should be avoided.
Yes. All CanameD products go through a rigorous series of tests by third-party labs to ensure purity and accurate concentrations of cannabinoids. This includes testing to be sure that our products are free of THC and any potential contaminants.
No. Unlike marijuana and THC, CBD is non-psychotropic and is extremely unlikely to cause a high.
No. CBD is not a drug. You will not be required to produce a medical marijuana card in order to purchase CBD online. However, some states have laws allowing doctors to recommend CBD to patients for particular conditions.
CBD itself does not have an expiration date. However, CBD oil products can degrade and should be used within a certain period of time. They should be stored in airtight containers either in the refrigerator or in a cool place away from direct sunlight. Please refer to the product expiration dates for more information.
We highly recommend either refrigerating CBD products or storing them in a cool place. Always keep CBD products in airtight containers and store them away from direct sunlight and heat, which can degrade certain compounds in CBD oil.
Under normal circumstances, our products are not expected to produce a positive result for THC consumption through testing conducted using industry-standard sophisticated testing methods. CanameD can not, and does not represent or warrant as to the results that any individual may experience, and advises you to consider the risks of incorrect detection prior to use of this product.
Because of its ability to help support the body’s effort to maintain homeostasis, CBD is often used by those who don’t have any specific concerns.
Much more research needs to be done in this area. If you are taking prescription medications, consult with a qualified medical professional.
In some cases, such as when using a vaporizer or tincture, users often report almost immediate results. However, most of the effects of CBD are subtle and take some time to be detectable — usually half an hour or more. Personal results will vary.
