What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol. This is a substance that belongs to the cannabinoids. These substances are native to the body, but are also found in certain plants, such as the cannabis plant. Nowadays there are many other variants besides CBD oils: for example CBD capsules, CBD ointment and CBD tea. The body recognizes the substance as its own, creating a connection with our cannabinoid receptors.
CBD is often confused with the well-known substance THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). However, CBD contains such a low amount of THC that it is legal and safe. The maximum legal percentage of THC is 0.05%. This is because CBD is extracted from the hemp plant and THC from the cannabis plant.
What is CBD made of?
The substance can be extracted from various parts of the hemp plant, such as the tops, flowers, leaves and stems. Quality brands mainly use the buds of the plant, because this is where most of the CBD is located. The CBD is eventually mixed with oil or water. The production method strongly determines the quality of the CBD oil.
How is CBD oil made?
The extraction of CBD uses heating or freezing. The tops of the hemp plant - which contains most of the CBD - are heated in oils, such as olive oil. The CBD then absorbs into the oils, after which the plant residues are removed.
Another way of heating is through the use of alcohol. By first soaking the hemp buds in alcohol, the CBD absorbs into the alcohol. Subsequently, the alcohol is evaporated by heating and only a paste with CBD remains.
Extraction by freezing is also called supercritical CO2called extraction. An advantage of this method of extraction is that no substances are lost through heating, we call this full-spectrum. This method uses carbon dioxide in compressed form, which is in both the form of a liquid and a gas. The carbon dioxide extracts the CBD from the plant, after which the CO2is removed again and the extract remains.
The advantage of pasta is that it contains a more concentrated form of CBD and is easier to dose than CBD oil. CBD paste is top CBD oilpreferred because it contains a much higher concentration of CBD. Relatively speaking, the paste is therefore more beneficial than other CBD products. In this way you can easily absorb a high dose of CBD at once. You can take the paste orally or use it as an ointment.

How does CBD oil work?
The hemp and cannabis plants are the only plants that have phyto-cannabinoids. "Phyto" stands for "plant". Our body contains endo-cannabinoids. "Endo" stands for the body.

The cannabinoids influence our cannabinoid receptors, which in turn are involved in various physiological processes, such as: appetite, pain perception, mood and memory.

How do I use CBD oil?
You take CBD oil by starting with 2 to 3 drops under your tongue once or twice a day. Wait about two minutes for the oil to be absorbed by your body. The reason that CBD is often dripped under the tongue is because it ensures a faster absorption into the bloodstream. When ingested through the intestinal wall, the body breaks down the oil more quickly, causing it to lose its effect. You can eat something greasy when dripping, such as: fatty fish, avocado or eggs. These fats accelerate the absorption and enhance the effect.
