Why is CBD oil different from cannabis?
CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. The other cannabinoid within the plant which you may be familiar with is THC. THC is the psychoactive part of the plant, the part that makes you feel hungry, giggly, confused and sometimes sick. CBD doesn’t have these effects as it contains very little or no THC. THC is illegal in most parts of the world, which is why cannabis is.
CBD oil is extracted from the cannabis plant into a distilled oil or powder, depending on the process. It is then used as a natural, therapeutic remedy. The remedy has been found to help with a number of conditions, such as anxiety, inflammation, epilepsy pain, depression, PTSD, menopause symptoms, cancer symptoms, nausea, headaches, sleep disorders and more.
Sometimes, CBD will contain trace amounts of THC. This will be 0.2% or less, and nowhere near enough to have psychoactive effects. The cannabinoid is present due to the way in which it is extracted. The less aggressive extraction methods mean that terpenes and some of the THC remain. Terpenes have their own added benefits. These work in harmony with the CBD and provide even more benefits for your health and wellbeing.
How can you take CBD in Melbourne?
There are many different ways to enjoy CBD. They range from dropping oil under your tongue, to vaping CBD e-liquids or flowers, or chewing on edible gummies. The most bioavailable way to enjoy the cannabinoid it through vaping as it quickly enters your bloodstream via the capillaries in your lungs. However, the best way to take CBD is how you feel most comfortable doing so and get the best results.
