  2. The popularity of CBD oil has grown enormously in recent times. But what kind of oil is it and - more importantly - what do you use it for?

  1. CBD, in full cannabidiol, is an active substance that is extracted from leaves and flower tops of industrial hemp (fiber hemp), a hemp variety that is legally grown. It is sold as a food supplement, in the form of oil and capsules, and as a constituent of other products, such as skin care products.

Massive media attention

  1. The oil received massive attention in 2013 when CNN aired a now legendary documentary about a three-year-old American girl with epilepsy. Charlotte Figi suffered from severe attacks (up to 200 per week) from her first months of life and largely got rid of that with CBD oil. Since then, parents from home and abroad have been looking en masse for good CBD oil.

What does CBD oil do?

  1. Epileptics aren't the only ones claiming to benefit from the oil. Although not everything is scientifically established, according to users, the oil offers support for many physical and mental complaints. Think of stress-related complaints, problems sleeping or staying asleep, mood changes during and after the menopause, depression and various pain complaints. People with ADHD, Parkinson's disease, migraine and rheumatic complaints also report more positive experiences with CBD oil. There is no scientific evidence yet that the oil cures ailments. However, it can help to reduce complaints as a result of certain medicines. In any case, many doctors are enthusiastic about its therapeutic effect. Anxiety and stress One of the most well-known uses of CBD oil is to relieve stress and anxiety complaints. In 2011, scientists published an article in the Journal of Psychopharmacology in response to a study of the relationship between CBD and social anxiety disorders. It suggests that CBD can provide relief for people with an anxiety disorder. Another study from the same year found that preventive administration of CBD to public speakers significantly reduced their anxiety, stress and discomfort. Pain relief CBD oil is regularly used by people with pain complaints, such as people with rheumatism (especially fibromyalgia) and osteoarthritis. A study with laboratory animals (2012) has shown that CBD can suppress inflammatory and neuropathic pain. Tests on mice in 2005 showed that CBD can have a positive effect on osteoarthritis. Much research on humans has not yet been done, but it seems likely that CBD acts on the cannabinoid receptors, causing the nervous system to ignore pain. The University of Nottingham conducted research and found that cannabis oil not only acts on the central nervous system to reduce pain, but also reduces inflammation in joints. The relaxing effect of CBD oil is also said to help relieve stress and pain complaints. Sleeping problems CBD is used by many people with sleeping problems. It helps muscles relax, allowing you to sleep deeper and wake up more rested. Although there are many positive voices to be heard, not everything is scientifically substantiated yet. A lot of research is currently being done into the exact operation, among others by SEIN; the expertise center for epilepsy and sleep medicine. Diabetes Various studies have been conducted that examined the effect of CBD in diabetes. These indicate that CBD can help stabilize blood sugar levels and if possible alleviate the symptoms of diabetes. Research on humans is not (yet) available. however, an article was published in 2006 about a study with diabetic mice. The mice were given cannabidiol (CBD), this study showed that CBD could possibly slow down or even prevent destructive insulitis (harmful inflammation of the islets of Langerhans (the cells in the pancreas that produce insulin). scientific research in mice has discovered that the anti-inflammatory properties that CBD possesses can potentially be used in a variety of diseases, including type 2 diabetes. Parkinson's disease Many people with Parkinson's also use cannabis oil against spasms and muscle tension. In Parkinson's disease, both CBD oil and THC oil are usually used. There is little scientific research on CBD / THC and the effect on Parkinson's. The studies that have been done are slightly positive or neutral. An example is a study by the University of SÃ £ o Paulo. The researchers found that there are indications of a positive effect on the quality of life when using CBD by patients with Parkinson's. However, they think more research is needed to come to definitive conclusions.

What is the difference between cannabis oil and CBD oil?

  1. Cannabis plants and hemp plants are not the same plants, but they come from the same (cannabis) family and can therefore be called both (medicinal) cannabis plants. If you read something about cannabis somewhere, it could be about both hemp oil and cannabis oil (marijuana). The biggest and most important difference between hemp plants and cannabis plants is the fact that hemp plants contain little or no THC and a lot of CBD. Cannabis plants contain a lot of THC and little CBD. Oil with THC (cannabis oil) is not legally for sale and in certain situations only available on prescription. CBD oil is completely legal for sale in the Netherlands and most other European countries. However, both ingredients are said to have significant medicinal benefits. Because of this, both types of oil are also called medicinal cannabis oil.

Does it get you high?

  1. CBD oil will certainly not make you high. Cannabidiol comes from the hemp plant, but is not addictive, has no mind-altering and does not cause hallucinations. Intoxication THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the psychoactive substance that provides a â € ˜highâ € ™ feeling and is found in cannabis oil.

How do you use CBD oil?

  1. CBD oil is taken orally. You hold the drops under the tongue for a while and then swallow them. The oral mucosa quickly absorbs the active substance. It can also be taken with a piece of bread, or - if you have trouble with the taste or intake of the oil - in capsule form.

What is the correct dosage of CBD oil?

  1. The dosage of CBD oil is strongly dependent on the complaints for which you use the oil. Moreover, everyone reacts differently to it. So it is mainly a matter of trying. Start with a low dose (for example two drops a day) and slowly build up until you have found an effective dose for you. It can take a while for CBD oil to take effect, so give it a few weeks before you decide if it is for you. CBD oil is available in different concentrations, from 2.5 percent to even 10 percent, with 5 percent being the most commonly used. A lower concentration of CBD is often only used preventively, or used for mild or starting complaints.

Tips for buying CBD oil

  1. Buy the CBD oil from a reliable source and make sure it contains at least no or very little THC. In case of medical complaints, always consult your doctor / specialist first and continue to do this during use if something seems to change in your situation. This way you can be sure that the CBD does not interact with the medicines you are taking. If the CBD is successful, you can possibly lower the dosage of other medication in consultation with your specialist. If you don't notice any effect, stop again; Unfortunately, CBD does not work for everyone. Be extra careful with narcotics such as alcohol, benzodiazepines (medicines with a calming and relaxing effect, such as valium and all substances ending in 'pam') and all opiates (morphine, various pain killers but also heroin). CBD oil, especially the cheaper version, can also have a mild sedative effect, which can enhance each other's effect. So be extra careful in traffic. When purchasing organic CBD oil: look out for a Skal quality mark. Skal Biocontrol works on behalf of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and supervises the quality of all organic products. To get the Skal quality mark, both the producer and the recipe must be certified and meet strict requirements.

Does CBD oil have any side effects? CBD oil in low concentrations, without THC, generally has no side effects and can be used by almost everyone, as long as the recommended dosage is observed. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not recommended, because insufficient research has been done on this. Don't miss anything anymore?
