What is CBD?
CBD is the term used for cannabidiol, a naturally occurring chemical compound (also known as a cannabinoid) found in cannabis plants. Many cannabinoids are found in these plants, such as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBG (cannabigerol), and CBN (cannabinol). However, CBD has become particularly popular for its use in various natural supplements.
While CBD is a product of these plants, you’ll usually find it extracted from hemp plants and used in products such as oils, topicals, edibles, and more.
Is CBD the same as marijuana?
There’s a lot of confusion when it comes to CBD and marijuana, especially as the two are closely related. CBD is one of over a hundred cannabinoids which can be found in cannabis plants, including marijuana plants. However, whereas marijuana is mostly known for its psychoactive effects, CBD produces none of these.
It’s the THC in marijuana that makes users high when they consume the plant. CBD, on the other hand, is non-psychoactive and does not make users high. While many marijuana strains contain CBD, CBD products are usually extracted from hemp plants which contain high levels of CBD with low levels of THC. Legal, hemp-based products contain less than 0.2% THC, meaning they won’t give you any of the effects you’d generally expect from marijuana. ULU is entirely free of THC – having less than 0.0005%.
What are CBD skincare products used for?
Scientific research has shown that CBD has anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore CBD skincare products are great for reducing inflammation, redness and swelling – especially when associated with acne. CBD is also good at moisturising skin and helping dry skin (as well as related dry skin conditions such as eczema.)
How should you use CBD?
There are various methods of CBD consumption to use safely and effectively. Each of these has its advantages and some are better for certain purposes. You can choose to use it whichever way you like and may even want to test out multiple methods to see which is best for you.
CBD oil tincture is the most common method of use, especially as it’s quick, easy, and discreet. Each bottle of CBD oil tincture comes with a dropper, which you use to measure out your dosage and apply it under your tongue. Hold it under your tongue for around a minute or two and your body will absorb the cannabidiol into your system. You can also add CBD oil to foods and drinks, although taking it sublingually (under the tongue) acts on your body much faster.
How much CBD should you use?
Usually, a daily dose of 15-25mg of CBD is recommended if you just want to use it as a casual daily supplement. This is enough for most people to get a healthy daily serving, and some studies even suggest that 25mg of CBD can help with certain issues.
However, you can always experiment with your dosage and take as much as you feel you need.
The proposed regulations for future Novel foods and use of CBD will advise daily dosages up to 70mg are safe and have not shown detrimental health issues with animal studies.
What are the side effects of CBD?
Just as with any kind of supplement, users may worry about the potential drawbacks and side effects of CBD. However, unlike substances such as THC, CBD is very safe to use with no risk at all of harm to your health. Studies have found that the vast majority of humans can use CBD without any side effects, although some very minor side effects are occasionally reported, such as diarrhoea and changes in appetite. One side effect can be a change in mood – often for the better!
Is CBD addictive?
People may also worry about whether CBD has any addictive qualities. However, CBD is safe to use without any risk of addiction. CBD has no physically addictive qualities, meaning you can use as much as you want, as regularly as you want, without worrying about becoming addicted.
When you stop taking CBD, you won’t experience any withdrawal effects, even if you’ve been taking it for a long time. Along with the lack of harmful effects, this makes CBD a very risk-free natural supplement.
Can you overdose on CBD?
There’s no risk of overdose on CBD. Whereas some substances, including some medications, can cause overdoses, and THC (absent in ULU products) can cause extreme discomfort when used in high amounts, it’s entirely safe to use any amount of CBD without worrying about overdosing.
Many studies have even shown that high doses of CBD can be taken without any harmful effects. For instance, a study on using CBD for social anxiety issued subjects with a dose of 600mg of CBD, resulting in no side effects. So you can even take high doses daily without any issue. But there’s no need to.
Is CBD safe to use for children?
CBD is as safe for children as it is for adults. Children will probably need lower doses than adults due to their lower body weight, as far as we know there are no risks attached.
There have been many studies carried out on CBD for children, which have been proven to be effective for Epilepsy disorders such as Dravet and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.
Can you use CBD for animals?
Yes, there are specific CBD products intended for animals, so it’s best not to give your pets CBD products designed for human consumption – just as is the case for any supplement. These may be harder for them to consume or ingest, and they may also need a lower dose.
