What is Cannabidiol?

FACTS and FAQs about Cannabinoid Oil
Cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive extraction of the cannabis plant.

Cannabinoids may be the single most important Hemp byproduct ever discovered due to its enormous potential.

The agricultural designation of industrial hemp is a cannabis plant that contains less than .3 % THC.

What is CBD?

CBD is an abbreviation for “cannabidiol” and is one of at least 113 known active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. It can make up at least as much as 40% of the plant’s extract.

It does not have the psychotropic effects of THC, tetrahydrocannabinol, a property of marijuana.

The term “cannabinoid” refers to one of a number of natural compounds found in the hemp plant.

What kinds of conditions can be helped with Cannabinoid Oil?

Although research up until recently has been primarily on a smaller scale, there is growing evidence that Cannabidiol is effective with an impressive range of conditions.

Is Cannabidiol and Cannabis legal?

Serenity Remedies CBD Cannabinoid oil with below 0.3% THC is federally legal in the US. So CBD is legal in Colorado and all other states but is still illegal in many countries so keep that in mind when traveling.  Serenity’s products are fully tested and verified by third party analytical labs. Serenity Remedies contains no more than 0.3% of THC, which is the legal limit for THC in the dried plant. Marijuana, cannabis with high amounts of THC, has different legal precedent in individual states and should be researched before deciding on usage.  

Does Cannabidiol get you high?

It’s a question that seems to be on everyone’s mind these days.  It’s an important question to ask—and answer—because Cannabinoid Oil offers some rather profound medical benefits that can’t be found anywhere else.  But until fairly recently, those benefits could only be had by consuming the whole plant.

The short answer to the question is NO if taken in smaller doses.  Very large doses can evoke a “body buzz” and if full spectrum other cannabinoids in the plant can express psychotropic effect if taking in larger doses. 

CBD oil won’t get you high because it engages the receptor sites and blocks THC interaction (the stuff that gets you high). CBD is the stuff that actually prevents THC from getting users high. 

Is Cannabidiol safe for children?

Because there is little to no psychotropic effect from Cannabinoid Oil, it is typically considered safe for the use in children. 

Doses should be assessed by the size of the child.  

What is the optimal dosage of Cannabinoid Oil?

No two people are alike, and dosages vary depending upon the person using it. An effective dosage can range from as little as a few milligrams or drops of cannabis oil to nearly a full dropper.  Because cannabinoid oil is lipid based and everyone’s body metabolizes at a different rate, there is no broad answer to this question.

This is an opportunity for individuals to tune into their own bodies and become self-empowered.

Because Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid, there are little to no adverse effects from using Cannabinoid Oil.  Consider starting with a small dose for the first several days. Observe the effects; if necessary, adjust the amount upwards.

What’s the best way to take Cannabinoid Oil?

For most conditions taking a cannabidiol-rich hemp oil sublingually, (under the tongue), is going to be the most effective way to ingest it and takes advantage of the vast internal benefits of cannabinoids. Topical application is also affective, as cannabinoid receptors are also present on our skin.

How long does it take for the effects of Cannabidiol to be felt?

This varies depending on a person’s metabolism.  Some notice the benefits immediately.  The average person will feel the effects within 5-10 minutes, which can last for four hours or more. When using CBD for mental and emotional needs a stable use over weeks may be needed to feel effects. CBD oils are most effective when used in a stable and consistent manor over time. 

Will Cannabinoids show up on a drug test?

Most common drug tests are only testing for THC. If you are consuming unusually large dosages of CBD, such as 1,000 to 2,000 milligrams per day, it could theoretically trigger a positive for THC on a urine test although we’ve never seen that to be the case.

It is suggested that you speak to your human resources representative regarding this matter.

Our bodies have an endocannabinoid system (ECS), but what is it?

The ECS regulates relaxation, eating, sleeping, certain inflammation responses, and even cognitive function. There are two types of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body (CB1 and CB2), but they are most abundant in the brain and immune system respectively.
