What is Cannabidiol (CBD)
Buying CBD Oil online can be frustrating. So here is a quick guide to explain what to look for.
First, what is CBD?
CBD is a phytocannabinoid first discovered by Richard Adams in 1940. It is one of some 113 identified cannabinoids extracted from the hemp plant, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. As of 2018 preliminary research on Cannabidiol (CBD) included studies on Mood, Mental, Movement, and Discomfort Issues. Just to name a few. For more information simply do a search for “CBD” and your particular issue, and you will find lots of important information pertaining to your particular situation.
One of the most critically important qualities of CBD is its lack of psycho-activity. This means that Hemp extracted CBD won’t get you “high”. Unlike THC, the cannabinoid with the power of producing euphoric sensations, Cannabidiol is inert. More importantly, Industrial Hemp has to have 0.3% or less of THC to be legal for commercial (or supplemental) use in the United States.
Hemp contains many other valuable minerals, vitamins, terpenes, proteins, phytosterols, enzymes, essential sugars, polyphenols, antioxidants, flavonoids, and essential fatty acids. Making Hemp the “Treasure Chest” of the Plant Kingdom!
Three Things to Look for when Choosing a CBD Oil
U.S. Grown Organic Hemp
You need your Hemp to be organically grown in the U.S. Most companies import their Hemp from Europe or Asia. These Countries have very low standards for growing hemp so you are not sure what you are getting. This is important because Hemp acts like a sponge, anything that is in the ground the Hemp plant will soak up like a sponge, i.e. toxins, heavy metals, and pollutants. These harmful chemicals will subsequently go into you.
Third-Party Lab Tested with Viewable Reports
Next, you will want your CBD Oil to have an outside Laboratory test each product so you will know exactly what the chemical makeup of the CBD Oil is, and how much actual CBD is in it. More importantly, whether there are any pollutants, heavy metals, or THC in the Oil. These results should be readily available on the Company’s website. Be wary of websites that do not show these reports or make it difficult in obtaining this information. Best to shop elsewhere.
Many brands utilizing imported hemp can charge relatively low cost for what appears to be high dosage bottles of CBD. This is simply because the Hemp is of poor quality and usually no oversight or lab testing. These company’s costs are minimal and can be transferred to the consumer by way of a cheap substandard CBD Oil. Every reputable CBD Brand has to pay more for U.S. Organic Hemp, Third-Party Lab testing, and other expenditures. Hence, the higher prices for a trustworthy brand. In common sense terms, what’s the point of ingesting a low-grade mystery oil for health and wellness. It defeats the point. For example, if you see a 5000mg CBD tincture oil selling on Amazon for $19.99, DO NOT BUY! It is best to shop elsewhere. You only get what you pay for when it comes to a high quality American CBD Oil product. A well respected American CBD Brand will have ballpark price points around $40-$150 for 250mg-1500mg Oils respectively. SHOP NOW!
According to Globenewswire.com, Since the legalization of hemp-based CBD, you’ve no doubt seen CBD specialty stores popping up all over town as well as online. In Nielsen’s 2020 forecast for the hemp CBD industry, they predicated the industry will be worth almost $2.75 billion this year. CBD in America has been booming since 2018 and continues to grow at a record pace.

What is CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol or CBD oil is a product that’s originally derived from cannabis. It’s a type of cannabinoid, which are the chemicals naturally found in hemp and marijuana plants. Hemp CBD only contains 0.3% THC, whereas Marijuana contains between 10-30% THC. So with Hemp CBD you can take an infinite amount and it will never get you high or alter your mental capacity in any way. More importantly, many companies like MD Organics, will strain even this small amount out to make the oil THC Free.
According to Wikipedia, Cannabidiol can be taken into the body in multiple ways, including by inhalation of cannabis smoke or vapor, as an aerosol spray into the cheek, and by mouth. It may be supplied as CBD oil containing only CBD as the active ingredient or full-plant CBD-dominant hemp extract oil, capsules, dried cannabis, or as a prescription liquid solution. CBD does not have the same psychoactivity as THC, and may change the effects of THC on the body if both are present.
CNN reports, The CBD floodgates opened after President Donald Trump signed the Farm Bill into law in December 2018. Among other things, the bill legalized the production of hemp, which contains high levels of cannabidiol, or CBD. CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it won’t get you high. (THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical in cannabis that does that.) Instead, CBD is marketed for everything for overall health and wellness issues.
CBD Softgel Capsules
A standard CBD softgel capsule is usually a dark golden or amber shade. The capsules are often filled with either hemp oil or grapeseed/olive oil as an additional filler.
How to Take a CBD Softgel
Taking your dose of CBD in the form of a softgel may be the most convenient way to get all the benefits of CBD without much hassle. No measuring out a dosage or holding under your tongue. Simply swallow and move on with life. Most softgels come in 10-25mg of CBD per pill and many users will take 1-2 softgels at a time, two to three times a day. A 300mg CBD bottle is not like an aspirin bottle label. 300mg of CBD is how many total milligrams are in the bottle. With your standard 30 softgels in a bottle of a 300mg of CBD product, the user will receive 10mg of CBD per softgel. Whereas, a 300mg bottle of aspirin, a user will receive 300mg per pill.
Hemp Extract CBD Softgels are ideal for people who dislike the taste of CBD tinctures or who do not vape. Softgels are an ideal solution because of the ease of use. They are a great way to add all the benefits of CBD for your overall health and wellness regimen. More importantly, using a Nanoemulsion CBD Softgel, the effects should take place within 10-20 minutes after ingested and should last between 4-6 hours when the correct dosage is attained.
How many CBD softgels do I take per day?
Enjoying the benefits of CBD softgel depends on many different factors in terms of dosage. Your own particular size and shape, your CBD tolerance along with other factors will determine the dosage. It is important to understand there is no one specific dosage that will suit everyone. It is best to start small (20-40mg per day) then slowly increase by one or two softgels per day until relief is felt. Make a note of how many milligrams you are taking and this will be your daily dose. Softgels can be combined with gummies, tincture oils, and topical products to receive complete body coverage. Don’t forget, before taking any CBD product always consult with your doctor first.
Important Dosage Considerations
- Concentration The strength or concentration relates to the total amount of CBD in any product. Generally, concentration is measured in milligrams or mg. the concentration differs from the actual dosage, as this more commonly refers to the amount of CBD per serving.
- Level of CBD required If you want to achieve a higher level of benefit, you may need to take more softgel capsules. Less for if you are experiencing milder conditions.
- Tolerance after taking CBD softgels over time it is possible to develop a tolerance. It can result in the effects being reduced from the same dosage. You may need a greater dose to achieve your desired results.
- Bodyweight Your weight is very important In how much, or how little CBD will affect your body. In general, heavier people will require higher doses and the lighter you are, you may feel the same effects with a lower dose.
Water Soluble Nanoemulsion Technology
Using CBD orally via a softgel or pill, without Nanoemulsion Technology means the user’s bioavailability will be between about 5-20%. Meaning only this percentage will be actually absorbed into the bloodstream. Additionally, CBD experiences the first pass effect. This occurs when enzymes in the gut and liver break down the CBD before it can make it into the bloodstream.
Researchers also found that absorption of CBD with Nanoemulsion did not rely on bile production while the standard CBD did. Bile production occurs in the liver and helps digest fats, including CBD oil. However, CBD with Nanoemulsion did not depend on this. The CBD was most likely absorbed directly into the intestine without the help of bile, explaining its speedy absorption.
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, Nanoemulsion Technology is an advanced mode of drug delivery system that has been developed to overcome the major drawbacks associated with conventional delivery systems. This review gives a detailed idea about a nanoemulsion system. Nanoemulsions are nano-sized emulsions, which are manufactured for improving the delivery of active ingredients. These are the thermodynamically stable isotropic system in which two immiscible liquids are mixed to form a single phase by means of an emulsifying agent, i.e., surfactant and co-surfactant.
The droplet size of nanoemulsion falls typically in the range 20–200 nm. The main difference between emulsion and nanoemulsion lies in the size and shape of particles dispersed in the continuous phase. In this review, the attention is focused to give a basic idea about its formulation, method of preparation, characterization techniques, evaluation parameters, and various applications of nanoemulsion.
