How does CBD oil work?
CBD oils and their derivatives belongs to a class of organic compounds called phytocannabinoids (commonly referred to as cannabinoids). These complex compounds are unique due to their ability to influence the human body through activation of the following receptors:
• CB1 and CB2
CBD’s influence on the ECS is extraordinary because it acts as a “general manager” of the entire system, rather than binding to CB receptors. It supports the ECS as a whole to help the body function in a balanced state.
CB receptors, or cannabinoid receptors, influence a regulatory system known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Its primary function is to act as a homeostatic regulator, supporting how the body balances various biological systems.
By encouraging the production of beneficial endocannabinoids, enzymes, and neurochemicals, CBD oil is thought to impact our digestive, central, and peripheral nervous systems, among others. When our body is in a balanced state, it operates at its most efficient and is better equipped to deal with fluctuations in our physical and mental health.
What effects can CBD possibly oil have?
Due to the unique interaction between CBD oil and the endocannabinoid system (ECS), the compound may influence dozens of physiological processes and systems. Research is ongoing, but preclinical studies suggest the compound may have the following properties:
How long can effects of CBD oil last?
Generally, CBD oil will begin to take effect approximately 40–60 minutes after consumption, with the duration of CBD’s effects lasting several hours. Alternatively, when taken sublingually (under the tongue), effects take place much more quickly due to fast absorption by the oral mucosa. However, the effects of sublingual CBD do not last as long as when it is orally consumed.
Please be aware that factors such as metabolism, body weight, oil concentration, and frequency of dosing can also affect both the onset and duration of effects.
It’s essential to start with a low dose of CBD until you become accustomed to the compound’s effects. For the best CBD experience, experiment with different consumption methods to find out which one suits your lifestyle and needs.
Which percentage of CBD oil is right for you?
Cibdol CBD Oil (with olive oil carrier), CBD Hemp Seed Oil, and CBD Black Cumin Seed Oil all feature the same full-spectrum CBD extract in a range of concentrations to suit the user’s desired outcome. By offering 2.5, 5, 10, 20, and 30% oils, Cibdol will meet your needs, no matter the situation.
If you’re new to CBD, we recommend starting with a low-concentration oil until you become accustomed to its effects. Stick to the same frequency and concentration for several days, before gradually increasing until you reach the desired dosage.
The ideal oil concentration, and the recommended frequency, will vary according to your individual circumstances depending on height.
Which CBD oil is best for you?
There is no single superior product, and buying the right CBD oil for you will be a matter of personal preference.
Alongside traditional CBD oil, we also offer a wide selection of alternative carrier oils. Paired with our golden-grade CBD, hemp oil, olive oil, and black cumin seed oil provide a range of secondary benefits.
Hemp oil, for example, contains a high amount of antioxidants alongside plant protein and omega fatty acids 3 & 6, while black cumin seed oil won’t disturb or upset the delicate balance of terpenes and cannabinoids in our full-spectrum formula.
Finally, if CBD oil is difficult to incorporate into your daily routine, we have a variety of CBD softgel capsules in 4% and 10% concentrations for a tasteless and odourless alternative. CBD softgel capsules contain a predetermined dose of CBD and olive oil.
Why choose full-spectrum CBD oil?
When cannabinoids and terpenes exist together, their respective attributes are enhanced thanks to a phenomenon known as the entourage effect. All of our CBD oil uses a full-spectrum formula. This diverse selection of all-natural cannabinoids includes:
Over twenty essential terpenes also complement our full-spectrum formula. Terpenes play a crucial role in the entourage effect, while also having several potential beneficial properties of their own.
Can CBD oil help with your condition?
The effects of CBD may vary from one individual to the next; as such, you should always consult a doctor before taking CBD oil to address a particular condition.
The full impact of CBD is still under review. Thus, we can make no claims about its potential to treat specific conditions. However, early research suggests that the cannabinoid may have future applications.
Please note, CBD oil from Cibdol is not intended as a replacement for any form of medicine.
How is CBD oil made from hemp?
To produce our golden-grade CBD oil, we only use naturally grown European hemp. Not only does this comply with legal regulations regarding CBD, but it ensures an all-natural approach from seed to bottle. Hemp is a prime source of CBD and other influential cannabinoids, and it’s also a highly sustainable crop involved in dozens of industries.
To ensure unrivalled purity, our oils undergo several stages of production, each with strict quality controls. One of the most crucial steps in producing CBD oil is isolating the relevant cannabinoids and terpenes via CO₂ extraction.
Why use CO₂ extraction to make CBD oil?
CO₂ extraction is a superior method of isolating cannabinoids and other compounds.
CO₂ is a natural product that’s all around us. It’s easily accessible and supports photosynthesis in plants. CO₂ extraction ensures we maintain complete control over the contents of the final product—no toxins or harmful chemicals are present after the plant material is processed.
However, CO₂ extraction is just one aspect of producing the industry’s purest CBD oil. Raw components are also decarboxylated, filtered, and distilled before a final round of filtration.
The result is golden-grade CBD oil free from adverse levels of THC, plant matter, GMOs, and artificial additives.
Is CBD oil the same as hemp oil?
Although we provide CBD with a hemp oil carrier, this is not the same as the hemp oil you’ll find on the shelves of supermarkets or high-street wellness stores. Pure hemp oil does not contain any cannabinoids, and therefore will not provide the same effect as CBD oil.
It’s also common for consumers to confuse CBD oil with cannabis oil. The term “cannabis oil” is sometimes used to describe CBD oil; however, it’s more commonly used to describe oil produced from marijuana strains containing significant THC levels. While cannabis oil may contain CBD, the presence of THC makes it unsuitable for many users. Moreover, these products are not legal in most EU countries.
CBD is derived from the leaves and flowers of mature hemp plants using sophisticated extraction methods, purification, and distillation. To ensure you know what is, and isn’t, included in every bottle, all of the CBD oil we produce are tested independently.
All test results are available to view on our “CBD Analysis” page. You’ll also find a breakdown of terpene content and a heavy metal analysis.
Is CBD the same as THC?
Although CBD and THC are both found in Cannabis sativa, each has a very different effect on the human body. THC is a psychotropic cannabinoid, which can cause unwanted side effects when consumed in large concentrations. It does this by binding to CB1 receptors in the brain.
CBD, on the other hand, does not bind to the same receptors and is entirely free of psychotropic side effects. CBD, THC, and dozens of other cannabinoids all interact with the body differently, which is why individual cannabinoids may have unique applications.
How do liposomes affect CBD oil?
Liposomes are tiny vesicles that shield molecules as they travel through the human body. Using state-of-the-art techniques, we’ve harnessed liposomes in our golden-grade oil for a CBD solution that is up to four times stronger than traditional CBD oil.
Cibdol provides Liposomal CBD Oil in 2.5 and 4% concentrations. This specialised CBD oil makes use of pharmaceutical-grade liposomes to improve both the potency and efficiency of CBD. However, due to the presence of alcohol, liposomal products are not suitable for children or pregnant women/breastfeeding mothers.
How do you take/dose CBD oil?
You can take CBD oil on the tongue, under it, or with food and drink. How you choose to consume it is a matter of personal preference.
Shake the bottle well before use, and fill the dropper to the required level. Administer the recommended dose in your mouth and hold for 60 seconds before swallowing. If you have difficulty taking a precise dose, try taking it in front of a mirror.
If you’re new to CBD, start with 2–3 drops, up to three times a day. The recommended dosage for Cibdol CBD oil is 3–4 drops, three times a day, although this may vary according to individual circumstances.
Why take CBD oil under the tongue?
CBD oil taken under the tongue bypasses the digestive system and enters the bloodstream via tiny capillaries under the tongue and inside the cheek. Not only is the onset of effects quicker, but they are also more pronounced.
Whether you take your oil on or under the tongue, for best results, hold the liquid in your mouth for 60 seconds before swallowing.
What other CBD products are available?
CBD is a versatile compound easily infused with a variety of additional compounds. Alongside our CBD oil range, we also provide CBD creams, supplements, cosmetics, and CBD for pets.
The right CBD oil will depend on individual circumstances. If you are unsure which type of CBD product is suitable for you, we recommend speaking to a doctor first.
If you have any questions regarding the type of CBD products we provide or the ingredients used, don’t hesitate to contact a member of our customer service team using our “Contact Us” page.
Can you combine different CBD products?
If you want to combine CBD oil with CBD softgel capsules or any of the CBD supplements we provide, it’s perfectly viable to do so. The frequency and type of products you mix are a matter of personal circumstances, but we recommend tracking your total daily intake of CBD in milligrams.
By keeping track of your CBD intake, you can quickly and accurately adjust the dose according to your needs. You can find more information about the CBD content of our CBD oil range by checking the “Information” tab for each product.
Is CBD oil safe?
As part of a comprehensive review by the World Health Organisation (WHO), CBD was found to be “well-tolerated”. Their study also found that “CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential”, going on to add that “there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD”.
CBD oil may, however, interfere with the breakdown of certain prescription medications. This is the result of the cannabinoid’s interaction with enzymes in the liver. If you are currently taking, or plan to take, prescription medication, speak to your doctor first before trying CBD oil.
Some preliminary studies have also reported mild side effects from high doses of CBD. These include diarrhoea, fatigue, dry mouth, and changes in appetite.
Does CBD oil expire?
CBD oil is a perishable product, so we recommend storing the bottle in a dry, cool, and dark location for best results. The ideal place to store CBD oil is in a refrigerator, ensuring the lid is secured tightly when not in use.
Our CBD oil include a printed expiry date on the label and a corresponding batch number.
Can you travel with CBD oil?
Although CBD oil is considered legal in the majority of countries, local regulations surrounding its cannabinoid content may vary. The global CBD industry remains largely under-regulated, and this can make it confusing for customers. For the majority of users, flying or travelling with CBD oil is not advised.
If you must travel with it, we recommend checking with local law enforcement and clarifying the rules regarding CBD with the relevant transport authority.
Is CBD oil legal to buy?
CBD oil is legal to buy in both Europe and the US, provided it meets strict regulatory standards.
In Europe and the UK, products containing CBD must be derived exclusively from hemp, while also containing no more than 0.2% THC (some countries allow up to 0.3% THC). The entire CBD range sold by Cibdol adheres to EU regulations. Country-specific legislation may vary, and as such, we recommend checking at a local level before buying CBD oil.
In the US, CBD must also be derived exclusively from hemp, but the THC limit is 0.3% THC. Due to the complexity of laws at a state level, we strongly recommend checking local regulations before buying CBD oil.
Will CBD oil show up on a drug test?
The majority of workplace drug tests are focused on detecting high levels of THC, not CBD. Therefore, CBD oil produced to the correct standard should not trigger a positive result. However, many consumers may be unaware of the actual cannabinoid content of their CBD oil.
At Cibdol, we use independent testing and verification to confirm the contents of our full-spectrum formula. If you need CBD oil that is guaranteed to contain THC levels well below the legal threshold, choose Cibdol.
