What is CBD?
CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol. This is just one of the more than one hundred active substances found in the hemp plant. CBD falls under the cannabinoids, which have a protective function in the hemp plant, among others against ultraviolet light and insects. When cannabinoids are consumed by humans or animals, these substances interact with an extensive network of receptors. These are part of a corporal system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This ECS influences some vital bodily functions, including:
- our sleep
- our mood
- our appetite
- our immune system
- our perception of pain
- our motor skills
- our sleep pattern
- our memory
Thanks to the extraordinary interaction between cannabinoids and this natural system found within the human body, CBD provides a welcome addition to our bodies. Especially at times when our ECS does not function optimally on its own.
CBD is extracted from the hemp plant; a plant that is naturally rich in CBD. Nowadays, these plants are selectively cultivated for both their CBD and their useful fibers [doorlinken naar blog: de veelzijdigheid van hennep], which can be used to produce a wide variety of materials.
Information about CBD oil
What is CBD oil?
CBD oil, also known as cannabidiol oil or hemp oil, is the best-known extract from the cannabis sativa plant. CBD oil is produced out of CBD paste acquired from the hemp plant. CBD, the active cannabinoid in CBD oil, is obtained straight from nature and addresses your inner balance, both spiritually and physically.
CBD oil is not psychotropic [doorlinken Wiki over psychoactief en psychotroop], which means that it will not get you high. The use of CBD is safe, even in extremely high doses. Even in these cases, you will only consume a negligible amount of THC.
There are many different types of CBD oils available, meaning that everyone can find just what they’re looking for. Every human body is unique and as a consequence everyone’s needs can be different. This holds true for CBD as well.
What purpose does it serve?
We may not always realize it, but our bodies work hard all day, every day to keep themselves as balanced as possible. This balance is what we call ‘homeostasis’. Is something bothering you? Or are you just not feeling too great? Then there might be a chance that your ECS is not functioning optimally. This is where CBD oil can offer a welcome addition.
What does it do?
CBD oil’s popularity has been on a steady rise for the past few years. That’s not surprising at all; CBD oil is undoubtedly a dietary supplement with extraordinary qualities. Unfortunately, the strict regulations in the Netherlands greatly restrict us in providing information about the characteristics and effectiveness of CBD.
What we can still do, thankfully, is explain to you in detail how CBD acts inside our bodies, and what exactly this has to do with spiritual and physical balance. CBD has a very important interaction with our body. This interaction is intimately connected to our body’s own ‘endocannabinoid system’ (ECS).
Endocannabinoids are cannabinoids that are produced by our body itself, ‘endo’ can be understood to mean ‘the body’s own’. CBD is a cannabinoid from the fiber hemp plant; a ‘phytocannabinoid’. ‘Phyto’ denotes plant. This means that CBD is a cannabinoid from a plant, specifically the cannabis plant.
It has been shown that the phytocannabinoid CBD makes the same connections, and at the same points (the cannabinoid receptors), as do the cannabinoids produced by our own body. When the ECS is out of balance, phytocannabinoids such as CBD can fulfill an exceptionally important function.
Of course, you don’t just have to take our word when it comes to the characteristics of CBD. Researchers and experts of the WHO (World Health Organization) have medically reviewed CBD, and have through multiple studies come to some impressive insights. A number of these are documented here in a critical report.

How to use it?
The best way to use CBD oil is by dripping it directly under the tongue. This is the most efficient way to consume CBD oil. The oil is packaged in bottles fitted with little droppers, and using the dropper you can easily trickle the oil under your tongue. This dripping under the tongue is also known as ‘sublingual’ administration.
Sublingual delivery of CBD oil has its advantages. Under the tongue we can find mucus membranes, which function to absorb the CBD quickly and efficiently. This way, the CBD is absorbed quickly into the blood stream via the membranes. As a result, the product has a higher bioavailability: the level to which the active substance becomes available at the intended location.
Is it impractical for you to drip the CBD oil under your tongue? Some people first drip the desired amount on the back of their hand or on a tea spoon, and lick it from there. Once in the mouth, the advice is to wait at least 30 seconds before swallowing, so the oil can be properly absorbed by the mucus membranes.
Are you not too enthusiastic about having the CBD oil in your mouth? Aside from oral ingestion, there are countless other options. You could consider CBD capsules, CBD chewing gums, or even CBD patches, for example. Curious to find out which method of administration suits you best? We provide more information on the topic on this Wiki page.
CBD absorption through the skin
If you thought that CBD oil could only be useful internally, you’d be wrong. The popularity and rising demand of CBD products have led to this unique cannabinoid being included in more and more products. This also includes skincare products.
Are you struggling with dry or irritated skin? If so, treatment with a CBD skincare product might just be the solution you’ve been looking for. Thanks to research and human studies and clinical trials, it has been proven that CBD can counteract proteins that cause inflammatory reactions in the skin. Such an inflammatory reaction in most cases leads to pimples or red, irritated, or damaged skin. Did you know that you can also use regular CBD oil on your skin? In this case the CBD oil has a soothing, anti-inflammatory, or antiproliferative effect, making it useful in the treatment of numerous skin conditions.
Are you not willing to part with that special skincare product you’ve been using for years? Very understandable. It’s completely fine to add some CBD oil or another pure CBD product such as crystals to the skincare product of your choice, and mix them together. This way you can keep enjoying your favorite skincare product, only now with the added unique benefits of CBD.
What is the best oil?
The hemp industry is currently booming, and CBD makes up a large part of this industry. As a result, there are countless types and brands of CBD oil on the market. It’s not at all surprising if this has you feeling overwhelmed, or like you can no longer see the forest for the trees. Are you wondering which CBD oil is the best? We will give you a further explanation.
All types of CBD in general have one thing in common: they contain primarily CBD as their active ingredient. But, apart from this similarity, there’s also a few differences. The types of CBD oil can differ in:
- The number of active ingredients (like CBD)
- The carrier of the oil (the base oil with which the extract has been mixed)
- The flavor of the CBD oil
- The number of active ingredients: full spectrum, broad spectrum and isolate CBD oil
When it comes to CBD products, a distinction is made between ‘full spectrum’, ‘broad spectrum’ and ‘isolate’ CBD oil. To make the right choice for you, it’s helpful to understand the differences between these:
- Full spectrum CBD oil: this term denotes that the product contains a ‘full spectrum’ of cannabinoids and terpenes. In the case of a full spectrum product, all cannabinoids and terpenes from the hemp plant are retained, including the psychotropic substance THC. Full spectrum CBD oil is allowed to be sold as a dietary supplement in Europe, provided that the THC content remains minimal (a maximum of 0.05%). The great advantage of full spectrum CBD oil is that these products yield the so-called entourage-effect [Wiki: wat is CBD olie? → entourage-effect].
- Broad spectrum CBD oil: in these cases, all the different cannabinoids are present in the product, except for THC, as only the THC has been removed. Terpenes, however, are still present in a broad spectrum CBD oil.
Isolate CBD oil: CBD isolate is the purest available form of CBD. During the production of these products, special techniques are used to enable the isolation of a specific substance or molecule from a plant or extract. A CBD isolate thus only contains CBD, and no other cannabinoids or terpenes whatsoever. The CBD crystals are a perfect example of an isolate CBD product.
Summarized: the difference between isolate, full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD oil
|Isolate CBD oil||Full Spectrum CBD oil||Broad spectrum CBD oil|
|CBD is gained through a heating process||Usually produced through CO2 extraction||Usually produced through CO2 extraction|
|Does not contain any cannabinoids other than CBD||Contains other cannabinoids as well, such as CBG, CBN, CBDa and (maximum 0.2%) THC.||Contains other cannabinoids as well, such as CBG, CBN and CBDa. Does NOT contain THC.|
- The different carriers
A CBD oil is made up out of a CBD paste, which is diluted with a carrying oil. Our products are carried by a few different carrying oils, which are:
- Hemp seed oil: this is produced from the seeds of the hemp plant. Hemp seeds contain many beneficial nutrients, such as proteins, healthy fats and different vitamins, minerals and linoleic acid.
- Grape seed oil: this oil is gained from cold pressed grape seeds. Grape seed oil has steadily won in popularity over the past few years, and it’s clear to see why. Grape seed oil has many advantages. It’s supposed to strengthen the skin, lessen dark circles under the eyes, and it’s even said to help optimize one’s memory and concentration span.
- MCT oil: this is the part of coconut oil that remains liquid at room temperature. MCT oil is renowned as an extremely fast supplier of energy that is not stored as fat. It’s easy to understand why this oil is so popular among athletes.
- The different flavors of CBD oil
The basis for most of the types of CBD oil is the extract that is gained from the flowers of the industrial hemp plant. These hemp extracts are extremely concentrated, and are then mixed with hemp, olive or coconut oil to attain the desired percentage. The less an extract is purified, the stronger the taste of the final product. The flavor of such ‘raw’ CBD oil is often described as being a bit grassy and bitter. This flavor is primarily determined by the amount of chlorophyll (the pigment that gives plants their green color) that is extracted with the CBD, and the terpenes (aromatic and flavoring agents) present. In addition, the type of carrying oil with which the CBD extract is diluted is decisive in determining the flavor as well. Coconut oil (MCT oil), for example, typically has a smoother flavor as compared to olive oil.
We carry different types of CBD oils in our assortment, including CBD oils with pleasant added flavors. Renova, among others, offers a CBD oil with a fresh, minty flavor. Other CBD oils have more of a bitter taste, and can differ a bit when it comes to the intensity of the flavor.
Which oil should I buy?
It’s difficult to say which CBD oil would be best suited for you personally, as this is fully dependent on your individual preferences. How potent would you want the oil to be, for example? And which flavor would you prefer? Would you want the oil to include other beneficial substances as well, or just CBD?
Apart from these personal preferences, the safety of the product obviously also plays a large role in making the perfect choice. You want to be completely sure that the product you buy has been medically reviewed and conforms to all the government regulations regarding CBD products.
To feel assured that you’re making the best choice for you, it can be smart to gather some additional advice. You can do this by using our advisory tool, or, of course, by getting the advice of one of our experts.
Is it possible to make yourself?
Making CBD is a specialization in and of itself. To produce CBD oil, the CBD first needs to be obtained from the hemp plant. This is a process we call ‘extracting’. There are multiple methods through which this can be done [doorlinken naar vraag: hoe haal je CBD uit de hennepplant?]. There’s at least one thing that all these different methods have in common: it’s a complicated process not free from risk. As such, making your own CBD oil is not something we would recommend. Are you nonetheless curious to know what the process looks like from hemp seed to CBD oil [wiki – van hennepzaadje tot cbd olie]? Just take a look at our CBD Wiki!
How quickly is CBD absorbed by the body?
Depending on the chosen delivery method, the active substances in CBD will be absorbed by the body in approximately 15 to 60 minutes. The CBD remains present in the body for 4 to 6 hours. It is thus recommendable to take CBD oil multiple times a day, so you can profit from the unique benefits of CBD all day long.

How much CBD should I take?
Dosing CBD oil can seem quite confusing and even complicated at first. Where other dietary supplements usually have a pretty straightforward recommended amount, this isn’t necessarily the case with CBD.
Unless a doctor gives you a different specific recommendation, you can feel free to start with an average dosage, which is anywhere between 20mg and 30mg a day. You can try dividing this dose over 1-3 moments a day. Should you find that you do not reach the intended effects, feel free to up the amount incrementally with steps of 5mg per week, until you do reach the desired results.
In scientific studies on CBD, they often use dosages starting at 20mg and going up to a maximum of 1500mg a day. The World Health Organization reports that dosages in clinical research studies generally differ between 100 and 800 milligram per day.
Everyone’s perfect dose is different, so make sure to pay attention to what your body tells you and increase or decrease the amount accordingly.
Is it legal?
The Netherlands was the first to take a big step towards decriminalizing cannabis in 1972 with its ‘gedoogbeleid’: a tolerance-based policy. Since the implementation of this policy, one could no longer be prosecuted when it came to cannabis, as long as the regulations were respected. Sounds great, right? Unfortunately, it isn’t as simple as it sounds.
Although coffeeshops are allowed to sell cannabis due to this policy, they’re not allowed to cultivate it themselves. Only private cultivation at home is allowed, with a maximum of just five plants. How coffeeshops will actually get their cannabis has been a legal grey area ever since. The same is essentially true for CBD as well: the products can be sold legally, but cannot officially be produced here. In our CBD Wiki [doorlinken naar vraag: is CBD olie legaal?] we explain how this works in more detail.
