CBD KNOWLEDGE AND TERMINOLOGY

What is CBD?
a. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-intoxicating chemical compound of the
cannabis plant with enormous therapeutic potential. It is similar to THC, in
its therapeutic potential, however there is no “high” sensation commonly
associated with THC products. Please see the CBD training guide for
more info.

 

What can CBD potentially help with?
a. The effects of CBD can occur on a wide range of conditions including
chronic pain, insomnia, PTSD, anxiety, epilepsy, dementia and more.
Other research has shown that CBD has strong anti-oxidant,
anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic,
anti-tumoral, and neuroprotective qualities. CBD can also help moderate
THC’s effects by reducing anxiety and stress.

 

Will CBD make me feel high?
a. No. Cannabidiol (CBD) has many health benefits, without producing the
psychoactive, “euphoric” effect of THC. “Relaxing but not intoxicating” is
how some patients describe the effect. But like all supplements, certain
individuals may react differently.

 

Is CBD safe to use?
a. CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse on dependance potential.
b. To date, there is no substantial evidence of any public health-related
problems associated with the use of CBD.
c. Chronic use and high doses up to 1,500 mg/day of CBD are reportedly
well tolerated in humans according to the World Health Organization.

 

What is the difference between Cannabis, Hemp, and Marijuana?

a. “Cannabis sativa” is a species of plants that includes both “Hemp” and
“Marijuana”. The difference is primarily in how the plants are grown,
processed, and/or the “cannabinoid” content of them.
b. The term “Marijuana” though commonly used, has a controversial origin. It often refers to the type of cannabis with a high concentration of THC, the chemical compound that induces the psychoactive effects. High THC
cannabis is cultivated and processed for both recreational and medical
marijuana in areas where it is permitted.
c. Hemp is often referred to as “Industrial Hemp” and can be used for CBD extraction, fiber, paper, food products, and many other uses. Hemp must
legally contain no more than 0.3% THC

 

 

Will CBD interact with my other medications?
a. At low doses of CBD, less than 150mg total per day, it is unlikely that
significant interactions will occur. However it is always possible that
drug-herb interactions can occur, and this is more likely the higher the
dose.
b. CBD and other plant cannabinoids can potentially interact with many
pharmaceuticals by inhibiting the activity of cytochrome P450, a family of
liver enzymes.
c. If you are taking a medication where maintaining a certain blood level is
critical such as anti-seizure, anti-viral, blood-thinning medications- talk
with your healthcare provider or pharmacist before trying CBD.

 

Does CBD cause side effects?
a. Typically CBD is not associated with many side effects but these have all
been reported:
b. Dry mouth, Drowsiness, Lightheaded, Rarely can cause feelings of
mild intoxication - similar to a glass of wine.

 

What is the right dosage of CBD?
a. An effective dosage can range from as little as 5mg of CBD per day up to
150mg per day. Make sure to start low and go slow. Take a few small
doses over the course of the day rather than one big dose. Use the same
dose for several days. Observe the effects and if necessary adjust the
amount.
b. How much someone should take depends on: your body weight, the
condition you’re treating, your individual body chemistry, the concentration
of CBD in each pill, gummy, capsule, or drop.
c. As a rule of thumb, 10% of your body weight is a good place to start for a
relatively healthy adult - this is anecdotal, and not medical advice.

 

What is full spectrum CBD?
a. Full-spectrum refers to CBD oil that contains ALL the other cannabinoids
from a hemp plant, including THC (although it must be below 0.3% Delta-9
THC to be considered hemp); all of which have therapeutic value of their
own and help create what’s known as the “entourage effect”.

 

What is broad spectrum CBD?
a. Broad-spectrum refers to a host of cannabinoids present, but not all of
them (usually containing 0% THC).
b. Broad-spectrum CBD is an excellent choice for individuals that can’t have
any traces of THC in their system, whether for legal purposes, passing a
drug test, or anything else - because it offers some of the benefits of
full-spectrum CBD without any trace amounts of THC
c. There are many different processes that are used to make
broad-spectrum CBD. One way is by starting with a CBD isolate and then
adding other beneficial cannabinoids (except THC). Another method is
through a fractionalization process that removes the THC from a
full-spectrum extract. This process is costly, and less common.

 

What are terpenes?
a. Terpenes come from naturally occurring chemical compounds in a large
variety of plants and flowers, including cannabis and hemp. They are
largely responsible for a plant's aroma, smell, and taste, however they
also possess powerful medicinal properties. These terpenes work
synergistically with cannabinoids like CBD to create a specific therapeutic
effect, like sleep assistance or pain relief.

 

Are CBD products legal in all 50 states?
a. Yes, as long as they are derived from hemp, not marijuana, and contains
less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC. No medical marijuana card is required to buy
or use hemp-derived CBD products.
