Will I be able to function while taking cannabis oil?
The goal in taking cannabis oil for any condition isn’t to make the patient high. The goal is to find the dosing that is in harmony with each individual. We do this by beginning with micro dosing, communicating and adjusting as the patient’s body dictates.
How much should I take and how often?
Each person’s dosing protocol is specific for them after a consultation. Because everybody’s brain chemistry is different, there is no standard dose for everyone. Therefore, we err on the side of caution always and take a very conservative approach in the beginning, slowly increasing as the body builds tolerance.
What is the endocannabinoid system?
The Endocannabinoid System plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood and everyday experience. The discovery of receptors in the brain that respond pharmacologically to cannabis—and the subsequent identification of endogenous cannabinoid compounds in our own bodies that bind to these receptors—has significantly advanced our understanding of human biology, health, and disease. It is an established scientific fact that cannabinoids and other components of cannabis can modulate many physiological systems in the human brain and body. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that trigger cannabinoid (and other) receptors. More than 100 cannabinoids have been identified in the marijuana plant. Of these marijuana molecules, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) have been studied most extensively. In addition to cannabinoids produced by the plant, there are endogenous cannabinoids (such as anandamide and 2AG) that occur naturally in the mammalian brain and body, as well as synthetic cannabinoids created by pharmaceutical researchers.
What is the difference between hemp, cannabis and marijuana CBD
CBD derived from marijuana and CBD from hemp oil are different: marijuana is harvested for its buds, which contains psychoactive properties; hemp stalks and seeds are the targets of this crop, which do not contain enough THC to get anyone high. For cannabis to be considered hemp, it must have no more than 0.3 percent THC and the amount of CBD in these two products are quite different. Hemp oil has only traces of CBD (around 3.5 percent,) while CBD oil can have up to 20 percent. It is the higher concentration that makes CBD beneficial in the treatment of various health disorders. Hemp oil based CBD products do not contain enough of the compound to be considered much more than a health supplement. These are the products found in health food stores all over the country – legal in all 50 states.
