What Are The Benefits Of CBD Oil

Do you have questions about CBD and its benefits?

Are you unsure as to what this element does if you can’t get high?

Associated CBD has compiled some answers to common FAQ’s so that you’re completely up to date on the topic.


What Are the Benefits of CBD for First-Time Users?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many active chemical compounds found in the flower of the Cannabis Sativa plant, known for its ability to support general wellbeing. A natural plant-based alternative health supplement for general balance and wellness, CBD has gained immense popularity in the health and wellness industry. Due to its natural ingredients, adding cannabis-based products to our everyday diet can bring considerable benefits. Taking CBD as a food supplement may help to support your general wellbeing. Additionally, CBD offers botanical properties that are beneficial for anyone interested in supporting wellness, even if you’re healthy.

How Does CBD Oil Benefit My Health?

CBD and other trace cannabinoids in hemp oil interact with the body’s native endocannabinoid system. This system, found in all mammals, is regularly adjusting bodily functions in an effort to keep them in balance. Cannabinoids like CBD benefit the Endocannabinoid system by interacting with cannabinoid receptors found in the central and peripheral nervous systems and the immune system. This optimises the Endocannabinoid system, supporting its efforts to keep your functions in balance and encouraging the body to function at an optimal level. For healthy people, supplementing this large self-regulatory system with plant-derived cannabinoids is a potential way to encourage and maintain health.

Can CBD Get Me High? Is it the same as THC? 

A common misconception is that CBD is ‘weed’.

CBD should not be confused with the intoxicating THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) element of the cannabis plant. Despite their similar properties, they are radically different in their effects on the body. CBD, unlike its close counterpart THC, is not psychoactive and does not leave you with a high.

Don’t be discouraged, it is still really beneficial…

What effect does CBD Oil have on my Body?

The human body, like the Cannabis plant, produces ‘endogenous cannabinoids’ of its own.

Endo here refers to ‘within’, inside your body. The endogenous cannabinoids together constitute the endocannabinoid system (ECS) or the regulatory system.

Like many other systems in the body, ECS plays a critical role in maintaining balance in the body. (Refer to our blog about the ECS to learn more about it in detail. CBD, when introduced into the body, helps with the effective management of such processes acting as a natural optimiser.

How do I use CBD?

CBD extracts come in powdered and oil form and there is a wide range of products both for topical application and oral consumption.

We offer oils that can be applied such as a body butter or through oral consumption.

Their usage has different effects on the body. For example: 

  • Tinctures.

These are a combination of CBD with a carrier oil such as olive, coconut, etc.

Tinctures are usually administered under the tongue, held for a few seconds and then swallowed. They are fast-acting and an effective way of consuming CBD since it gets directly absorbed into the bloodstream. You can add CBD tinctures to your food or a smoothie as well.

  • Capsules.

More convenient, but they usually take a couple of hours before taking effect.

  • Edibles.

If you would rather eat CBD products like edibles, gummies and mints should be your go-to option. However, due to their dilution by other preservatives and additives, as well as having a delayed entrance in the bloodstream they tend to be less effective.

  • Topicals.

Lotions, balms and creams can be applied to the skin. However, as they do not enter the bloodstream, the effect is limited to the area of application only.
