As I was reading this book about CBD oil it intrigued me into looking further into this medicinal plant that is becoming very popular for it’s positive effects with seizure related diseases especially in children. Here are some answers about cbd oil that are most commonly asked by beginners. I recommend you read this book to learn more about cbd oil.
Q: Do I need a prescription?
A: What should one look for when purchasing a CBD-rich product?
A lab-verified amount of CBD and THC should be indicated on the label of any product purporting to be CBD-rich. Look for a listing of the major cannabinoids and what their values are in terms of milligrams per gram or milligrams per milliliter.
How can people in states where medical marijuana is not readily available or legal obtain CBD-rich remedies?
To access CBD-rich medicine, one may need to visit – or coordinate with a friend or relative in – Colorado or Washington, where cannabis is legal and available for personal use for those 21 years or older. How one elects to travel with or transport their medication, which is prohibited by federal law, is their own responsibility. High quality CBD-rich products are also available in California. In order to be in receipt of any California cannabis product one must be in possession of a valid medical cannabis recommendation letter from a California physician. Some patients and/or caregivers come to California and establish a temporary California residence to obtain a California ID. With this ID, they can see a California medical cannabis expert, get a letter of recommendation, and then obtain CBD-rich medicine. A number of patients and their families have relocated to cannabis-friendly states in order to access CBD-rich medicine on a consistent basis.
Q: How can I participate in the research effort of Project CBD?
A: Take the survey developed by the Society of Cannabis Clinicians and report the effects of whichever CBD-rich herb or products you are medicating with. The more individual responses, the more confident we can be in the aggregated answers. Please share any comments, findings, or observations by submitting items to our CBDiary.
Q: How do I know what dose of CBD I should take?
A: Consult with your physician. ProjectCBD.org publishes patient feedback and dosing data compiled by doctors who specialize in CBD-rich treatment regimens. GreenBridge Medical Services has developed a cannabinoid dosage guide for patients medicating with CBD-rich extracts.
Q: How is CBD metabolized when consumed orally? Is it converted to another compound?
A: CBD is metabolized into an analogous compound, 7-hydroxy-CBD. There may also be some 6-OH-CBD. But scientists know relatively little about the activity (or lack thereof) of these compounds. In 2011, Japanese scientists addressed this question in the journal, Life Sciences.
Q: Will I flunk a drug test if I medicate with CBD-rich cannabis?
A: Drug tests are geared toward identifying THC, not CBD or another cannabinoid. If one medicates with CBD-rich cannabis that has only a small amount of THC, the THC may register on a drug test. A drug test geared toward CBD would not be an effective law enforcement tool, given that CBD is not psychoactive and does not cause impairment.
Q: Can I get CBD from juicing raw cannabis?
A: By juicing or otherwise ingesting raw, unheated cannabis, one consumes THC and the other cannabinoids in their acid form. A CBD-rich strain contains CBD-acid, which, when heated, becomes CBD. Unheated CBD-acid and unheated THC-acid both have medicinal attributes, but there has been comparatively little scientific research into cannabinoid acids.
