CBD: Is It Addictive?

CBD supplements are not addictive. A full-spectrum oil contains all the compounds you find in marijuana. However, CBD oil is made from hemp, which isn’t the kind of cannabis that people smoke. Hemp contains low levels of THC, the psychoactive chemical abundant in recreational marijuana strains. It therefore can’t get you high, and isn’t addictive.

Can CBD Oil Turn Into THC?

Can CBD oil turn into THC? It can, but only in very select circumstances. It doesn’t change into THC on its own, e.g. by going stale or going bad. There’s no danger of this occurring. CBD also doesn’t turn into THC when ingested (at least not in any more than trace amounts). However, CBD is chemically similar to THC. This means it can be transformed into the illegal compound in a laboratory setting.

Why CBD Under Tongue?

Why should you take CBD oil under the tongue? The mucous membrane and gums absorb the active compounds in the oil quickly, because the layer of tissue is thin. It enters the bloodstream directly through capillaries visible under the thin membrane. CBD absorption under the tongue also prevents the oil breaking down in stomach acid.

What CBD Oil is best for me?

Generally speaking, the purest and highest concentration of CBD oil is the best. If CBD oil has scientifically provable effects, then those effects would be clearer after taking a more concentrated oil. Hempura offers a range of oils at different concentrations of CBD per drop. It's worth noting that we recommend controlling CBD amount rather than bottle strength, though. As dosages get higher, it is easier and better value to opt for the high concentration bottles.

How To Take CBD Oil

Like any supplement, it’s a good idea to take CBD oil either once or twice a day. Once a day, preferably in the morning, is a basic dose. There’s nothing wrong with just once a day, but in taking two doses (once in the morning and once in the evening) you ensure that you maintain roughly the same level of CBD in your body throughout each 24 hour period.

Will CBD Oil Be Banned?

Will CBD oil be banned? It won’t, because it’s a product made from hemp. Hemp has never been illegal to grow, provided you have a license, as it can’t be used recreationally. Hemp products are freely available whether as a CBD supplement, a pad of paper, or clothing. These products are becoming more popular because they’re eco-friendly. It’s therefore unthinkable that CBD oil will ever be made illegal.

What CBD Stands For… What Is Cannabidiol?

The three letters ‘CBD’ don’t stand for three words. Instead, they’re a contraction of the longer word cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is one of more than a hundred cannabinoids found in all species of cannabis plants, to a greater or lesser extent. It is the active ingredient in CBD oil, and is sold as a food supplement in the UK and worldwide. The contraction CBD is used because it’s easier to remember.
