CBD = Cannabidiol = Cannabinoid

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the cannabis plant. It is a naturally occurring substance that is used in products such as flowers, oils or foods and that can provide a feeling of relaxation and calm. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it is not psychoactive. European law allows the sale of CBD products that contain less than 0.2% THC in some countries, such as the Czech Republic.

CBD belongs to the group of cannabinoids that occur naturally in cannabis plants. It is safe, it is not psychoactive and you cannot develop an addiction to it. In fact, it has no side effects and can replace opioids; it is a primary chemical associated with medicinal properties. CBD is known as an effective natural analgesic for chronic pain. It has an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and promotes good sleep quality.



    How does it work?

    Our body is full of cannabinoid compounds and CBD receptors!

    Cannabinoids (chemical compounds naturally produced by cannabis plants and humans) act as neuromodulators in a variety of processes, such as mood control, skin reactions, motor skills, appetite, digestion, and pain. CBD is a suitable and necessary support for our endocannabinoid system, which is located in our body. The receptors of the endocannabinoid system are located in the central nervous system. There are two major receptors - CB1 and CB2 - which are found in the brain and nervous system. These receptors control the functions of the immune system and how the body responds to pain. Although the CBD does not perform this activity per se, it sends a signal to the body to start the activity. When CBD is used, the chemicals travel together with the blood cells in the body until they adhere to the receptors. Our endocannabinoid system begins to respond to this by starting to work, and the body then begins to regulate and correct itself.

    Possibilities of using CBD

    1. Smoking

    CBD interacts with our endocannabinoid receptor systems, which are different in each of us. This means that each species can and will affect us individually. It is always recommended to smell the flower and base your decision on what smells best to you - the one your body has chosen for you. You know best what is good for you.

    2. Oils

    CBD oils are produced by adding concentrated CBD to edible oils. The level of CBD concentration can be adjusted to determine the dose. There are two main types of oils: ‘Full Spectrum’, which contains all the cannabinoids found in the plant, and broad spectrum, which contains only one cannabinoid, mostly CBD.

    3. E-liquids

    Vaporization involves the purchase of a CBD concentrate and a vape cartridge. The vaporization pen uses a concentrated oil, measured in milligrams, which is thicker than the flower.

    4. Food

    Food is sold in packages and measured by how many milligrams of CBD they contain. They are usually between 50 milligrams and 200 milligrams. Because food must be digested first, it may take longer for it to take effect.
