CBD oil overview
You would like to try out CBD oil. But where to start, for God's sake? There are so many types and brands making it very difficult to make a right choice, with all those bottles. We would like to change that. With this article, we will provide you with information about:
- The CBD oil labels
- The usage of CBD oil
- The price differences in CBD oil
- The available CBD oils in our shop
- A clear overview of the amount of mg per drop, per label and oil.
CBD oil user manual
Before that, we would like to inform you about the use of CBD oil. You always start with a few drops per day (2 to 4), spread out over 2 to 3 moments. We always advise to consult your physician or pharmacy first. We never recommend to self-diagnose and then take definitive decisions about the treatment of your complaints.
CBD illegal / legal
Recently, CBD and the possible illegality of it, has been frequently in the news. Let's be clear: We do not sell illegal products. CBD oil can be sold within the European Union, although the oil cannot be produced in the Netherlands. Yet, the production outside of the Netherlands is no problem.
CBD extraction processes
There are two ways of extraction when it concerns CBD oil. There is a cold process and a warm process. During a cold process, CBDA also is left in the oil. When heating, CBDA is transformed into CBD. In the 'raw' CBD versions, there is CBDA, and in the 'warm' versions, only CBD.
CBDA is known as a strong anti-inflammatory. For some people, this substance is really beneficial. The varies per person of course, and unfortunately, this is often a matter of trying out.
CBD price differences
You might have noticed that the price differences can differ quite strongly per label and per oil. Of course, it is true that each label has its own price setting. Furthermore, it is important with which oil CBD paste is mixed. You will understand that organically certified products are more expensive.
Hemp seed oil vs. Olive oil
Most CBD labels mix their CBD paste with organic hemp seed oil. This oil also has positive characteristics and components, which makes that CBD oil also has these positive characteristics. On the other hand, there are labels that mix their CBD paste with olive oil. This oil is somewhat cheaper, and therefore they can offer the end product for a different, lower price.
As mentioned earlier, we advise to start with 2 to 4 drops per day, selecting 2 or 3 moments to take it in. Overdosing is almost impossible when it concerns CBD, still we would like to advise to stick to the recommended maximum amount. This recommended maximum amount is indicated on the package.
Which CBD is a good start?
Where to start? In general, we recommend to start with 5% oil. Such as the MediHemp 5% RAW CBD oil. This has an ample range of cannabinoids, and this is our most commonly sold oil at the moment.
