What Is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid found in cannabis and hemp plants. It's one of almost 200 cannabinoids but unlike the others, CBD is not psychoactive, like it's most famous cannabinoids, THC.
Cannabidiol (CBD) can be extracted into various forms. One of the most popular forms being oil form, which is used in cannabidiol (CBD) oils. Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is becomingly widely known throughout the world for the vast array of potential medical benefits it may provide.
The most popular form of cannabidiol oil is most certainly “Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil”. This type of oil extraction captures and obtains a variety of cannabinoids found within the spectrum – such as CBC, THCA, CBG, CBDV, CBGA, CBN, CBDA, THCV, and in many cases low levels of A9-THC.
Is CBD Oil Safe?
Yes CBD is generally considered safe to use. CBD oil is considered therapeutic and low-risk for most users. However, a lot of CBD products have flooded the market recently and may have not undergone proper safety and quality testy. It is therefore important to buy CBD from a quality and trusted brand.
How Does CBD Work?
There are two types of cannabinoid receptors found in your body, CB1 and CB2 receptors. These are found in the immune and gastrointestinal system (CB2) and in the brain/throughout the body (CB1).
Cannabidiol (CBD) is believed to bind with both CB1 and CB2 receptors.
THC (the psychoactive property found in Cannabis) is known to bind more with the CB1 receptor rather than the CB2 receptor. Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is a quick (if not the quickest) and effective way to get the vital and essential cannabinoids flowing within your bloodstream and working directly with your endocannabinoid system. Working with your body, Cannabidiol (CBD) has a high potential to provide high levels of relief, relaxation, clarity, and so much more…!
Both these receptors are surprisingly fairly-new discoveries. Scientists are meticulously studying these molecules and properties every day, so that we can understand these receptors and continue to make crucial medical discoveries and advancements.
CBD Oil And Anxiety
1 in 3 Americans suffer from anxiety disorders. Think about that for a second … Look to the person to your right … now to your left. This means that one of you suffer from an anxiety disorder. 1 in 3 Americans suffer from anxiety. How crazy is that?!?
Anxiety has become the number one mental health issue in North America and its costing the U.S. more than $42 billion a year which is about a third of the mental health bill.
According to a recent research report, more than half of college student sought help for their anxiety issues. Multiple research has found that anxiety can negatively impact learning and academic performance.
Another study showed that over 40% of employees reported high level of anxiety in the workplace. This can lead to emotional exhaustion and lower performances.
There’s plenty of studies that shows how anxiety can negatively impact your daily life and odds are if you have some sort of anxiety disorder you don’t need someone telling you how it has impacted your life.
However, it’s not all doom and gloom! It can be treated and managed!
It’s normal to worry or feel anxious about things in life. Heck it can often be helpful. Think about when you have a deadline and the anxiety of the deadline is there. It can make you highly productive!
Also, some people are just general worrier, which means they spend just under an hour a day worrying about daily life stuff, and it’s ok!
Most of the research on cannabis products has looked at the used of marijuana rather than at CBD oil.
However, a recent clinical study has shown evidence that CBD helps with anxiety disorders. A study done by NYU professors, shows conclusive evidence “that demonstrates CBD’s efficacy in reducing anxiety behaviors relevant to multiple disorders, including PTSD, GAD, PD, OCD, and SAD, with a notable lack of anxiogenic effects.“
They also found that: “experimental findings support preclinical findings, and also suggest a lack of anxiogenic effects, minimal sedative effects, and an excellent safety profile.”

Consider This Before Buying CBD Oil

CBD oil prices may vary significantly and depends what type of CBD oil they use. Isolate tends to be lower quality and therefore cheaper but doesn't work nearly as well as Full Spectrum CBD oil. At BKLYN CBD our aim is to bring quality products to our clients hence why all of our oils are Full Spectrum.
How much CBD Should I take?
Weigh plays a role in the effects of CBD oil.
For light CBD effects: less than 130 lbs take 11mg of CBD or less. If you weigh between 130 to 230 lbs we recommend 18mg of less and over 230 lbs about 23mg.
|Weigh Group||Mild Effect||Moderate Effect||Strong Effect|
