How do you use it?
There are different types of CBD-based products and each requires a different delivery system. CBD oil is the most popular product, and it’s best to drip the product under the tongue and swallow it after 30 seconds. You can also dilute it with water or fruit juice, or you can mix it with food. Products like CBD paste and CBD crystals can be placed under the tongue as well, or they can be used to provide CBD for your homemade weed oil. CBD capsules are taken with water. Products for the skin are to be applied directly to the skin.
We sell CBD products with a strength that varies between 2,5% and 18%. This percentage indicates the percentage of cannabidiol (CBD) present in the oil, so a 2,5% jar of 10ml contains about 250mg of active CBD. We recommend the 2,5% type for kids and pets or in case of very slight complaints, the 5% type for average complaints, and the types containing 10% or more in the case of more serious complaints.
It’s complicated to provide an unambiguous answer to this question. The dosage differs from person to person, and is determined by the complaints for which it’s used and the strength of the product that has been chosen. Nevertheless international guidelines concerning the amount of milligrams CBD have been created, based on the type of complaint and the body weight. You can find tables in the description of each product that are based on this information. You can use and adjust these guidelines when and where necessary. It’s important to always listen to your body.
What’s the difference between hemp and cannabis?
Most people think that hemp and cannabis (weed) are the same thing, but that’s certainly not the case. Hemp plants are mainly used for industrial and medicinal purposes, while cannabis plants are mostly used for recreational purposes. Both plants do belong to the same family, but they differ in terms of the concentration of active substances, THC and CBD especially. Hemp plants contain a lot of CBD and little THC, while cannabis plants contain a lot of THC and very little CBD. THC is the substance that makes people feel stoned (or high), which is why it is forbidden in the Netherlands.
What’s the difference between weed oil and CBD oil?
If you’re looking for CBD oil then you probably have heard of weed oil as well. This oil is also referred to as cannabis oil, THC oil, mediweed oil or Rick Simpson oil. The plant of which the oil is made makes the difference. If it’s made of the previously mentioned hemp plant then we call it CDB oil, while if it’s made from the cannabis plant we call it cannabis oil. These two are often incorrectly mixed up. Weed oil contains a lot of THC and little THC, while CBD oil contains a lot of CBD and little THC.
If you want to buy weed oil then remember that it’s not legal in the Netherlands, which is why it’s not regulated, or in other words: je never know what you’re buying. You can make THC oil yourself, but we don’t recommend that due to the risk involved and the fact that the strength of the THC can vary considerably.
In what way do weed oil and CBD oil work differently?
CBD is often considered as the medicinal little brother of THC, which is used mainly for recreational purposes. Overall we can say that CBD is often better when physical complaints are concerned, but in the case of certain stress-related or psychological ailments THC could have positive effects as well, as it helps your body and mind to relax. It’s nevertheless recommended to always use CBD oil as well, due to the fact that weed oil contains so little CBD.
We can not and do not want to make medical claims in connection to CBD-based products. These are part of the European laws and regulations, and all producers, stores and webshops need to adhere to them. When CBD is being connected to a specific complaint we usually point you in the direction of objective information published by previous users on the internet. There are a lot of people suffering from chronic pains who have found relief in CBD oil, for example. For the moment there are no known side effects connected to the use of CBD oil. It can’t hurt to try. We also provide you with the chance to share your experiences with other people.
