What are the Effects of CBD?
Due to the interaction of cannabinoids with our own receptors, CBD is able to deliver effective therapeutic relief. The natural mechanisms of CBD do not produce a harmful response in the body and is known for its pain relieving effects. Across tests, it appears to concentrate heavily on receptors specific to pain and stress perception. This is especially true if consumed through the lungs due to its rapid absorption rate to the bloodstream.
A Closer Look
This is all due to the strong communication of cannabidiols and our serotonin 1A receptors. These receptors are known to regulate our stress hormone, otherwise known as cortisol. Because of this strong interaction, conditions such as anxiety, depression, and schizophrenia can be positively impacted by the intake of cannabidiol.
An important channel, otherwise known as the vanilloid receptor is also affected by cannabidiol. Also known as TRPV1, this ion gate is involved with the thermoregulation of the body, resulting in the calming of inflammation and percepted pain.
It is suggested you do your own research as the effects of CBD are still being studied, and have not been confirmed by the FDA. It can be considered an alternative to cannabis and its THC properties, as studies have shown that CBD does not interfere with psychomotor or psychological functions. Therefore, it will not produce the high felt with cannabis based products involved with THC. This can be especially helpful for those trying to minimize their cannabis or nicotine intake, as the effects are nowhere near the effects brought on by either of those substances.
Consult with a physician if you are pregnant or nursing, as extensive research is ongoing to understand how CBD fully affects the body under these conditions. If you have a severe medical condition, professional advice should be sought in order to receive the best care and treatment available to you.
What is the Difference Between CBD and THC?
While both CBD and THC interact with our endocannabinoid system, both extracts have very different results on our body. Because of their differing molecular makeup, the brain interacts with these extracts in very contrasting ways. Specifically, CBD affects different parts of the brain through its varied CB1 receptors, having a strong effect on our pain perception. CBD has been shown to negate the effects of THC, making it impossible to get high off of. Luckily, CBD is legal to consume and still provides the elevating effects that benefit the body without the high. The most felt from the compound is a deep relaxation, potentially turning into a trance-like sleep. While CBD is still found in cannabis, it is legally required to be harvested from industrial hemp, containing the lowest traces of THC possible.
Because THC and CBD come from the same plant, many people are led to believe that CBD has the same psychoactive properties as THC. However, it does not, as it actually aids in the reduction of the hallucinogenic effects brought on by THC. Potential effects, such as memory impairment, mood swings, and appetite changes are typically associated with marijuana and are not caused by CBD. In fact, they are largely reduced with its usage as it interacts with the brain in a completely different way. Due to its reverse relationship, you can bet CBD will not induce an altered state of mind.
Is CBD legal?
Yes, it is legal in all 50 states to buy without a prescription.
Can a Drug Test Detect CBD?
CBD will also not show on a drug test as it doesn’t have the same properties of scheduled drugs prohibited by the DEA. For legality purposes, retail CBD has very low concentrations, ranging around less than 1% of THC typically seen at 0.3%, and can be grown either through a strain with low THC cannabinoids, eliminating the psychoactive effects of THC, or through hemp. It is expected that all CBD products are at or under the 0.3% legal limit of THC, but unfortunately there are companies out there that do not abide by these standards. This is why it is crucial to do your own research on potential false advertisement and make sure that you are trusting the right company to handle your CBD. We post all of our statistics on each and every strain of CBD, from extracts to tinctures, to cream and e-liquid.
CBD In Recent News
Recently in 2018, the DEA approved CBD products containing less than 0.1% THC to be a schedule 5 drug as opposed to schedule 1. This is due to the FDA approving a new cannabis-based CBD medicine otherwise known as Epidiolex to treat rarer forms of epilepsy. This is the first time anything hemp related has been notably recognized at a federal level. Although this is the first time we have seen recognition that CBD should not be categorized as a schedule 1 drug, this is both good and bad news. While this classification gives credibility to the name of CBD and its healing properties, it also gives big pharma a chance to overstep its boundaries and limit accessibility to common folk trying to obtain this product, as this product will not longer be able to be purchased at a medical marijuana facility or online, but rather a doctor’s prescription.
The Food and Drug Administration still considers CBD at 0.3% to be a class one drug, among heroin and ecstasy; a classification considered quite inappropriate by those who understand its amazing health benefits, especially those suffering from chronic pain or seizures. Hopefully, we will see a shift in the recognition of CBD products containing .3% due to its healing abilities and necessary access to all of age without a doctor’s prescription.
How do I use CBD?
Being multifaceted, the bountiful ways in which CBD can be used extends beyond the basics. For example, CBD vape oil can be put into your vaporizer directly onto the coil, or mixed with your favorite e-liquids either in your tank or into the e-liquid bottle. Vaping CBD juice often provides instant relief to our most painful areas, due to its absorption by the lungs and into our bloodstream. Our CBD derived from hemp can also be smoked through various tools, such as a water pipe or rolled in our very own joints. Not only can you smoke it, but you can also consume CBD in other ways. Means such as edibles, capsules, and tinctures make for a hassle-free way of embedding ease back into your busy life. If localized joint pain relief is your goal, taking advantage of our cream may also be worth considering if ingestion isn’t the best option for you.
If you find yourself needing a large quantity, you may want to consider buying through our wholesale prices. Whether that be for e-liquid, tinctures, creams, etc., buying in bulk proves to be a much cheaper method in the long-run compared to purchasing CBD in small batches. Luckily, our company does not require you to have a license to sell in order to purchase wholesale. This makes consuming that much easier and more accessible if you’re looking to buy CBD through our online site.
How is our CBD Produced?
Our CBD is extracted through CO2 and ethanol, which are two of the cleanest ways it can be extracted. CO2 extraction involves a series of filtration throughout several different chambers within controlled heat and pressure. This form of extractions yields at least 90% isolated cannabidiols. Ethanol uses its own properties to draw the cannabinoids out of the plant, and is then further broken down through chromatography to filter out any unwanted phytochemicals. Once this process occurs, the terpenes and cannabidiol can be isolated and the rest of the plant can be thrown out. Ethanol is one of the best methods due to its high volume of full spectrum extract.
We also keep you in mind with our CBD Genesis products by having the freshest organic hemp grown right here in North America. Our CBD oil is extracted from organic industrial hemp and is rich in antioxidants as well as omega fatty acids.
We pride ourselves in offering CBD in a way that is accessible to all by offering it in many forms such as joints, capsules, edibles, hemp oil and more. It’s true versatility that makes this compound so special compared to other means of pain relief. Cannabidiol delivers fast relief without the high, making it a viable option as alternative medicine. Whether you are a smoker, non-smoker, or somewhere in between, you can find something that best suits your needs at CBD Genesis.
What is E-Liquid?
A viscous liquid that can be cooked by a vaporizer and quickly absorbed by the lungs. One of the most popular ways of getting CBD into your system is by vaping it due to its instantaneous effect. This is done through a cannabidiol based e-liquid, otherwise known as CBD vape oil.
How is CBD E-Liquid Made?
Once the rich cannabidiol is extracted from either hemp or cannabis, it is then mixed with either propylene glycol or vegetable glycol (or both). PG is a thinning agent that adds in your favorite flavor to the mix while the VG makes the vapor smoother and thicker. Usually distilled water will also be added to the e-liquid to eliminate any harshness that remains in the vapor. Both artificial and organic flavorings are used in e-juices, depending on the brand. From cannabis, there is >.3% THC count in its CBD oil, and can only be sold in states with laws that have passed marijuana for both recreational and medicinal usage. However, pure CBD isolate harvested from hemp contains very little THC, staying under the legal limit of .3%. Because of this, CBD has never been more accessible to those do not wish to feel an altered state of mind.
The Perks of Vaping:
- Instant therapeutic effects
- Vaping allows for people to get the inhale they desire from their tobacco or chosen herb but without the harsh side effects obtained by smoking cigars or cigarettes. The vaporizer lightly cooks the tobacco or herb instead of burning it, preventing carcinogens from being emitted and transported into your lungs.
- Vaporizers are far less intrusive than joints or water pipes. There’s no pungent or off-putting smell, allowing you to vape pretty much anywhere. Moreover, these small nifty devices are portable and quick to work.
- CBD e-juice can also be mixed in with your other favorite e-liquids, such as nicotine-based ones, making your self-medication process that much more enjoyable based on your preferences. You can easily adjust the strength of dose while sipping on any of your favorite flavors.
- With the ability to vape e-liquid containing cbd, consuming will no longer be a chore. From sitting on the couch and watching tv, to going for a hike with your friends, CBD has never been more versatile.
- E-juices became popular with smokers who wanted to find a way of intaking nicotine without suffering the damaging side effects from the harsh ingredients associated with cigarettes and cigars. Nicotine is addictive and e-juices are sold in various strengths. As well as being a substitute, some use CBD oil vape juice to help them quit smoking, as this allows them to easily control the dosage of nicotine that they are taking.
If you decide that vaping is right for you, you’re going to need a good CBD vape pen to do so. There are a number of superb vape pens and other vaporizing devices located right here on our website to help get you started on your CBD journey.
How do I Vape CBD Oil?
CBD oil can be put in your vaporizer directly onto the coil. You can also make a concoction of your favorite e-liquid and CBD oil in the tank of the vaporizer or straight into the e-liquid bottle. Vape oil is smeared onto a coil and then heated (for some types of cbd vaporizers), or decanted into an oil tank. Some cbd oil vaporizers heat the oil via a metal plate which in turns heats the coil, which leads to the vaporizing. After that, vape away!
Is CBD Vape Juice Legal?
As long as the derived oil only has <.3% THC, online and store-bought CBD vape juice remains legal. To make sure your vape product is legal, check any possible testing associated with the product. As stated above, do your own research to ensure that your CBD product provides trusted and honest testing. These products have not yet been evaluated by the FDA and should not be taken as a doctor’s advice.
History of Hemp
The versatility of hemp has been well-known for centuries, dating all the way back to 8,000 BCE. It was cultivated in Eastern Asian regions, being mainly used for food and pottery materials. Hemp has been grown for the last 10,000 years used to spin into strong fibers, and later being refined for textiles, paper and clothing. It has also been known to be used in plastics, paint, and animal feed. Throughout history, hemp earned many valuable uses, and has more recently been recognized for soothing purposes, including its fast acting pain relief.
