What is CBD oil/cannabis oil?

Does CBD oil have a positive effect? What is CBD oil good for at all?

CBD (full name cannabidiol) is a useful ingredient in hemp that is extracted from it by a highly effective supercritical carbon dioxide extraction.

The effect of CBD oil on the body:

Like all living organisms, the human body is a very complex, precisely organized chemical system. Millions of cells are formed and broken down in our bodies every day. Each molecule has its own role in maintaining and regulating our vital functions. Such a regulatory role is played in our body by endocannabinoid molecules that are produced by our body. 

Recent research has shown that endocannabinoids have an effect on the body's energy production, food intake, the conversion of fats in the liver and fat storage cells, the breakdown of sugar in muscle cells, appetite, pain sensation, general well-being, memory, sleep cycle, and even body temperature regulation. 

For honest and authentic information, it is important to note that officially the positive effects of CBD oil are not known. So, according to the positive effects approved by the WHO, CBD oil has no healing or other positive effects on the human body.

Can CBD oil be legally consumed and sold in Hungary?

What you should also pay attention to is that if you are carrying it in hand luggage, you should comply with the regulations for liquid transport! Do not have more than 100 ml in a bottle with you, this also applies to cosmetics. Close it thoroughly in a trowel bag, which you can easily take out at the check-in counter at the security check and show to the security staff.

CB1 receptors are mainly found in the central nervous system, CB2 receptors are found in the immune system. The active ingredients of the cannabis plant, mostly attached to these receptors. CBD has an effect on substances that block/stimulate receptors.

What is full and broad spectrum CBD oil and how does it differ from CBD isolates (pure, pure CBD)?

What does full-spectrum oil mean?

When CBD oil is referred to as full-spectrum or broad-spectrum, it means that the tincture contains all the beneficial molecules of hemp. The most important and abundant ingredient is still CBD (cannabidiol), but there are more cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids to be found. Full-spectrum oils also do not extract THC during production (THC is the psychoactive component of cannabis). In accordance with European Union rules, the THC content of preparations made from industrial hemp should not exceed 0.2%. This amount is so small that it does not cause any psychoactive effects.

What does broad-spectrum oil mean?

The broad-spectrum olaj is the little brother of full-spectrum oils. Most of the active ingredients are also contained in these oils, but THC is extracted from it during production, but it contains all the other active ingredients found in hemp inflorescences. 

These extracts also generally contain many types of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.

These oils are similar in color and taste to full-spectrum oils, just a little lighter and milder in taste.

 The most commonly found cannabionides that can also be found in full-spectrum products are CBD (cannabidiol), CBG (Cannabigerol), CBN (Cannabinol), CBC (cannabichromene), and THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). In addition to cannabionides, flavonoids and terpenes are also found in oils. These substances are responsible for the distinctive color, taste, and smell, and that's why each CBD oil becomes different, as each element ultimately plays an important role in the end result, from the climatic uniqueness of hemp's growing area, to the soil and chemicals used. That's why Reakiro, Happy Garden, Hemptouch and the solo Cannatural all consider it important to be able to control and follow their entire process from cultivation to production. The oils are made exclusively from self-grown hemp in Europe, including Spain, Hungary, Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovenia, where the use of plant and insecticides is strictly prohibited.

 

You can find out more about each product's unique cannabionide profile in the certificates issued by Phytovista, Fundación CANNA and other independent laboratories.

The important information about full- and broad-spectrum oils is that they have been proven to be more effective compared to CBD-containing formulations that contain only CBD, because in full-spectrum oils, different cannabionides and terpenes have an extremely good effect on each other and thus strengthen each other's action. 

What does CBD isolate mean?

So-called isolate or pure CBDs tend to have some fruity flavor, ranging in color from olive yellow to transparent and not usually in some cold-pressed oil (vehicle), they contain only CBD (active ingredient), so other ingredients found in hemp such as terpenes, CBG, CBC, THC, CBN and flavonoids are extracted during production. They have their own role, as many people find them more subtle, but these oils do not have the synergistic power and social power of full-spectrum oils.

Interaction of CBD preparations and drugs

Almost 60% of the medicines used in medicine are broken down in the liver under the influence of numerous enzymes. That breakdown system is called the cytochrome P450 system. CBD is known to temporarily paralyze this enzyme system, which can raise the blood concentration of the drug used, including its effect. 

This risk can be significantly reduced if the medicine used and the CBD-containing product are taken at different times of the day. If you need to take any medicines all the time, you should also consult your doctor if you are using CBD as an adjunctive therapy.

If you need surgery, be sure to tell your doctor if you are also taking CBD. Due to the aforementioned effect of CBD, anaesthetics can act stronger and longer.

In general, it is recommended to use CBD 2-3 hours after taking the drug and take the next dose of the drug another 2-3 hours after using CBD.

Particular attention should be paid if a person is taking an antidepressant, antihistamine, Ca channel blocker, beta blocker, immunosuppressive drug. With antidepressants and antihistamines, attention should be paid to the increase in fatigue, somnolence. In the case of a Ca channel blocker, it is necessary to pay attention to whether the blood pressure does not go too low (dizziness, weakness). In the case of a beta blocker, you should pay attention to low blood pressure and low heart rate. Steroids can accelerate the breakdown of CBD, while ciclosporin, everolimus, CBD reduces the degradation of both, so the drug stays in the blood longer.

If necessary, it is necessary to discuss with the attending physician the change in the doses of the drug used.

IMPORTANT! In the case of oral anticoagulants (blood thinners), the use of preparations containing CBD is contraindicated!

It does not need to be stored in the refrigerator. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when storing:

If you do store it in the refrigerator, the oil may thicken slightly. In this case, do not heat it under direct fire or in the microwave, as this will damage the composition of the oil. Instead, place it under lukewarm water for a few seconds and wait for it to regain its fluidity.

What does it mean and what is the difference between Cruelty free and vegan cosmetics?

Cruelty free: In the case of these products, animal testing is not permitted at any stage of product development. However, cruelty-free products are not always vegan. Thus, there are several products that have not been tested on animals, but contain, for example, milk or honey.

Vegan: Does not contain any ingredients of animal origin.

All of Hemptouch's products are cruelty-free and almost all of their products are vegan.

All Reakiro CBD oils are vegan. We recommend that you try mixing Reakiro CBD oils with natural cosmetic ingredients and thus prepare your own CBD-enriched cosmetics.

By enriching Shea butter or cocoa butter with a few drops of CBD, we get an incredibly beneficial cream, which can even be ideal against eczema.
