How Does CBD Oil Work?
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, CBD, is a part of the cannabis family. It comes from plants in the same way as cannabis but it does not get you high. The part of cannabis that makes you high is called THC and CBD only contains very little or no THC. Additionally, unlike cannabis, CBD is legal in the UK and most European countries.
The Endocannabinoid System
CBD oil is absorbed by the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in your body. The ECS was discovered by scientists in 1992. The ECS works alongside your nervous system to help keep your body function in the best way. It regulates things like your mood, appetite and sleep patterns. It’s very important to keep it functioning in the best way in order to ensure that your body is feeling as it should. All mammals have an ECS, including pets like dogs and cats. This is why CBD can help them too!
How Does CBD Oil Work?
CBD oil works to keep your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in the best condition. It can help control anxiety, reduce nausea, battle insomnia and alleviate pain. There is lots of research taking place on CBD for cancer, CBD for chronic pain and CBD for depression. We receive feedback from our customers as to how CBD has helped them manage a number of conditions such as pain and insomnia. CBD can also help the day to day functioning of your body in the same way as taking vitamin or mineral supplements. You can read our blog posts to find all the latest information on CBD research.
Does CBD Oil Work Better than CBD capsules?
You can buy CBD online in almost any form imaginable. From oil and ‘gummies’ to coffee and wine, it is difficult to find something that you can’t buy with CBD in. At Pure Organic CBD we sell our CBD as an oil. The reason we sell CBD oil is because research has shown that CBD Oil works best in this format. CBD is broken down by the liver so you want to avoid it going to the stomach to be digested and broken down by your stomach acid. If you take a capsule the CBD will be delivered straight to your stomach instead of absorbed into your bloodstream and for this reason, we recommend CBD oil.
How do you take CBD oil?
CBD oil is very easy to take. Simply use the dropper to place a few drops under your tongue and hold it there for a few minutes. Some people like to take CBD in the morning whereas people who use it for insomnia like to take it in the evening. Our CBD oil has a natural taste and it is best to take it after eating because CBD is lipophilic. This means it is fat-loving and water-hating so it can be difficult to absorb it in the most effective way. You can watch our video here of us taking CBD oil.
