What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid—or product—from the hemp plant. It can be extracted and used in many different ways. The foundation of almost all CBD products is CBD isolate, which is a fine white powder of pure CBD. This odorless, tasteless product is easily combined with other ingredients and easily dissolvable.
What Does CBD Do?
In general, the effects make you feel relaxed, calm, or ‘chill’, but range from person to person, and ailment to ailment. Here at Cannafyl, we describe it as if when the CBD begins to onset, the symptoms almost feel like they ‘release’ from the body; soothing inflammation, epilepsy, etc.
In higher doses, CBD hemp oil does affect users more potently, which is great for severe ailments like chronic pain. Sometimes it does create the adverse effect listed above. Remember, when it comes to taking CBD, or any other cannabinoids, start low and go slow.
There are many CBD benefits for baby boomers including pain relief, sleep aid, stress regulation, anxiety, depression, PTSD, cancer, and more! The human body naturally has an Endo-Cannabinoid System, or ECS, that helps maintain and promote homeostasis within the body through the use of cannabinoids. Through interacting with CB1 & CB2 receptors throughout the nervous systems, CBD help maintain equilibrium by managing stress, pain, anxiety, etc.
Will CBD get me high?
No. CBD will not get you ‘high’. Although, in some users, a high dose of CBD may induce adverse effects such as nausea, drowsiness, and sometimes diarrhea.
What is the difference between Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, & Isolate CBD?
While yes, CBD is CBD; there are distinct differences between the popularly known Isolate CBD, Broad Spectrum CBD, & full-spectrum CBD based products. It must be noted that CBD is only one of over 100 different cannabinoids found in the Hemp plant.
Isolate means that the CBD molecule has been isolated by itself, resulting in a fine white powder that can be infused into oil, creams, food, and more.
A broad spectrum CBD base is going to include the CBD molecule, as well as small amounts of other molecules like CBN, CBG, and excluding any and all THC. Broad spectrum allows more phytocannabinoids to enter the body, providing more amplified effects compared to a plain Isolate.
A full-spectrum CBD base contains everything in a broad spectrum CBD base, but it also contains trace amounts of THC. A full spectrum has been found to be the most beneficial long-term.
When you compare an Isolate product to a full-spectrum, it has been shown that Isolates show a bell-curve effect when it comes to tolerance. This means you have to keep increasing your dose of an Isolated product; to where eventually it provides little to no effect. A full spectrum CBD product will not adhere to your tolerance; therefore making it a more beneficial long term product.
What Are Terpenes?
Terpenes are naturally occurring molecules found in plants, and are responsible for giving a plant its distinct smell, taste, etc. Each terpene is known to have its own set of benefits, so these benefits are amplified when combined with CBD. Cannafyl™ products combine CBD with a specific set of terpenes to not only provide you with a full-spectrum product, but increase the benefits of specific healing effects depending on your own unique symptoms.
What is the Entourage Effect?
The phrase refers to the compounds present in cannabis working in concert to create “the sum of all the parts that leads to the magic or power of cannabis”.
Simply put: the Entourage Effect is the benefit you get from ingesting multiple components of the cannabis plant together instead of ingesting one component at-a-time. This means that having all of the naturally occurring parts of the plant together, creates a more potent, synergistic effect on the body.
Will CBD interact with my medications? Should I talk to my doctor about starting CBD?
Cannabidiol is currently being studied for this exact reason. When you take a medication, your body has to metabolize, or break down the compounds. An enzyme called CYP450, found in the human body, is responsible for transforming foreign substances in the body to be eliminated from the body through the liver in an easy process.
Some substances can cause an interaction with the CYP450, similar to the common ‘grapefruit warnings’ found on many medications. By changing the rate of metabolism, CBD may create effects synergistically that were not originally intended by the medications original design and purpose.
If you are taking CBD with any other medications, it’s important to discuss the topic and regimen with your healthcare provider. Most doctors have the ability to perform pharmaceutical tests to ensure there are no negative interaction effects, so you may still safely take CBD with medications having the grapefruit warning, but only with doctor supervision & guidance.
How are Cannafyl CBD products made?
Cannafyl™ products are made using Full Spectrum Hemp CBD distillate, which is a far more viscous, liquid form of CBD. Distillate contains trace amounts of other cannabinoids which greatly increases the healing effects of the product.
We have hand selected terpenes that are known for being anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, and anti-mutagenic to give you exactly what you’re looking for in your CBD products. Not only will you receive the benefits of the CBD, but also the added benefits from the proprietary terpenes blend and essential oils infused in them.
How Do I Use Cannafyl™ CBD
Cannafyl™ Certified Quality CBD oil has a couple different applications. The most popular is to hold a sublingual dose under the tongue for 30-60 seconds (recommended for fastest absorption). You can also apply the oil topically to your skin (Cannafyl™ CBD oil can be applied directly to an area needing attention or mixed with your favorite moisturizer lotion or salve). Another way is to blend Cannafyl™ CBD oil into a smoothie.
Is CBD legal in all 50 states?
Hemp-derived CBD is legal in all 50 states, but it is not legal yet federally when derived from Marijuana.
Any product from the Marijuana plant will usually contain more than the legal amount of THC, which is .3%. Most Hemp plants tend to contain less than .3% THC, so the products have been deemed legal. If your CBD is Marijuana-derived, then it’s not legal in the United States of America, yet.
Do You Ship Nationwide?
Yes. Cannafyl™ ships our organic hemp oil extracts to all 50 states.
