What is CBD oil?


Cannabis… Well it’s complicated. It’s one of the most powerful and misunderstood plants on the planet. So let’s delve into one of the most abundant compounds found in the female gland of the leaf... CBD aka Cannabidiol.

 

What are the health benefits of CBD?

CBD has been praised for a wide range of health benefits. It's had impressive results treating severe seizures and chronic pains, helped top-level athletes recover faster after workouts, and prove effective as an alternative to opioids for pain management. While more research is needed, early research has even proven useful for cancer patients in managing pain and side effects of chemo treatments.

For coffee drinkers, the main benefits to be expected are a reduction in stress and anxiety, that can help induce better sleep, but also help manage blood pressure.

 

What should I expect to see?

How and when you see the benefits of taking CBD depends on a number of factors, including how fast your metabolism works and your weight. Most people will feel a difference within a day or two, but for others, it may take up to two weeks. We often say its a bit like meditating, got to keep it regular and make it part of your routine.

Will I get High?

No. There are two main compounds found in the marijuana plant — THC and CBD. While THC produces mind-altering effects, CBD is the other major and non-psychoactive component of the Cannabis sativa plant. This means that there will be no change in the state of the mind.

 

Are there different qualities of CBD oil?

Yes, the most common ones are called Full Spectrum and Isolated CBD. Perhaps the easiest way to understand the difference between the two is to think of the difference between a pill of vitamin C versus and an orange. The former is but one element of the latter because oranges contain a complex of vitamins, phytonutrients, and amino acids which all work together.

Full spectrum CBD is an extract that contains all the compounds naturally found in hemp flowers, including terpenes, essential oils and other cannabinoids. Nothing gets stripped out. At Minor Figures, we prefer this extraction method because it offers the full range of benefits from CBD rather than a handful.

Make sure to buy products that are lab tested to stay safe. The Minor Figures CBD oil is tested for potency, contaminants, and quality before being packaged and shipped to you. Every bottle of our CBD oil comes stamped with a unique batch number. Because we lab test we can provide you with a copy of the  Certificate Of Analysis on request.

How do I take CBD oil?

CBD can be present as vaping liquid, drops, edible and pills. One of the better ways to absorb CBD is to use drops orally, which is why we chose to create a CBD oil solution in a tincture. We always encourage our audience to overachieve the typical 30 seconds and try instead to go for the full minute.
