What is CBD oil?

CBD stands for cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in hemp plants. Unlike THC (the active cannabinoid in marijuana), CBD is not intoxicating which means it will not get you high. CBD interacts with a series of receptors in your body known as the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS relates to a number of important systems in your body and helps keep your internal rhythms in optimal balance.

If the product is full-spectrum, it will have less than 0.3% THC, the federally legal limit for industrial hemp plants.

What are the main CBD types in the market?

  • Isolate: it contains only CBD, with no other cannabinoids.
  • Full-spectrum: it contains all cannabinoids naturally found in the cannabis plant, including THC.
  • Broad-spectrum: Contains multiple cannabinoids naturally found in the cannabis plant but doesn't contain THC.

What is the difference between CBD and THC?

THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol, which, like CBD, is a natural compound found in cannabis. However, they are different chemicals and have different effects.
For example, THC is the active ingredient that produces the psychoactive effect or the "high" associated with marijuana.

What's the Difference Between Hemp and Marijuana?

From a scientific perspective, both hemp and marijuana are the same species: The Cannabis sativa. The difference is in their chemical makeup. Anything with less than 0.3% THC by dried weight classifies as hemp (non-psychoactive). In contrast, anything over this is marijuana (psychoactive).

  • Hemp is more commonly used for making food (hemp seeds), rope, paper, building materials, natural plastics, and supplements such as Soulev CBD oil.
  • Marijuana is used as a recreational drug or for medical purposes because of its psychoactive effects.

How Does CBD Work?

CBD interacts with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS); this is a complex network of receptors and neurotransmitters spread throughout the body. This system regulates the balance of various organ systems. The receptors are located within the brain, the central nervous system, and the immune system. Almost every organ in your body (including the skin and digestive tract) comes with cannabinoid receptors.

What are the benefits of CBD oil?

Research shows that CBD oil can help relieve some symptoms and help some medical conditions, including:

  • Inflammation and chronic pain;
  • Neurological conditions;
  • Sleep disorders;
  • Psychiatric diseases, like anxiety;
  • Stress and high blood pressure

What are the primary uses of pure CBD oil?

Pure CBD might refer to CBD "isolate," meaning that it has no other active ingredients. Pure CBD oil, just like other CBD oils, has very positive effects that may help some health conditions. CBD isolate comes as a white powder that is then mixed to create oils, edibles, and capsules.

Is CBD good for anxiety and depression?

What Are the Most Important Factors to Consider When Buying CBD Products?

When choosing to buy CBD oil, pay attention to two main factors: Strength and Quantity. The correct dose needed of CBD can vary so much from one person to another.

  • If you require a high dose of CBD oil, it makes sense to buy a high-potency oil, the 2000mg CBD oil.
  • If you need only a small CBD oil dose to get the desired effects, a low potency CBD oil is a better option, the 500mg CBD oil.
Therefore if you have never tried CBD oil, it is better to start with the 500mg and see how your body reacts. Depending on your body, health situation, and result expected, the CBD oil might be better to be taken during the day or before sleeping. We recommend trying it out and see how your body reacts to the Soulev CBD product.

What are the effects of CBD oil?

People with health conditions (such as allergies) or taking other medications should consult their doctor first.

Is it safe to use CBD for pets?

Although some studies show that little doses of pure CBD oil (especially without THC) may help cats and dogs deal with pain, CBD works differently in humans than in pets, so further research is needed.

Can CBD oil be beneficial against viruses like Covid19?

Although CBD may alleviate some symptoms related to viral infections due to its anti-inflammatory properties, there is no evidence that it helps the immune system fight a viral infection. Therefore, you are advised to consult a doctor before using the oil when ill. Specifically, there are no studies that show that CBD can help symptoms of the novel Coronavirus in particular.

Important note: Before consuming CBD, please consult your primary healthcare physician. If you plan to give it to your pets, please consult your veterinarian.
