Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
CBD (short for cannabidiol) is one of more than 100 components present in the cannabis plant, and is found in varying proportions depending on the strain. It is also one of the most researched cannabinoids. Unlike THC, another substance in cannabis, does not produce any psychoactive effect.
What are the benefits of CBD?
There are several studies that indicate that CBD has plenty of benefits in various diseases and health problems, such as:
- Neuropathic or inflammatory pain
- Chronic inflammation
- Appetite and metabolism
- Anxiety and stress
- Convulsions and tremors
- Vomiting and nausea
We stress however that CBD is not a medicine and that legislation does not allow us to advise CBD for therapeutic or medicinal purposes. CBD products marketed by WeedZone should not replace any medical advice. Please consult your physician for further clarification.
How to use CBD?
Oral CBD Administration
Oral administration is the most common and practical way to consume CBD. There are two ways to take CBD orally:
- Under the tongue: In this type of administration the CBD is absorbed through the oral mucosa of the tongue. In this way the CBD enters the bloodstream immediately. The effects are felt after 10 to 15 minutes.
- Swallow CBD: CBD is consumed through gummies, pills, teas or CBD oil. This type of administration requires the CBD to be broken down in the digestive system which takes 20 minutes to 1 hour to notice the effects which can last up to about 4 hours.
CBD administration by respiratory route
In this type of administration the CBD is consumed through a vaporizer using CBD crystals for example, or an electronic cigarette in the form of an e-liquid. The effects of vaporized CBD start after 1 to 3 minutes and subside within 2 hours.
Cutaneous CBD Administration
CBD products used on the skin such as balms, oils or creams do not enter the bloodstream. Instead they interact with the endocannabinoid system via receptors in the skin.
What dose of CBD should be used?
The dose of CBD varies according to pathology, age, weight, gender, and tolerance. Finding the right dose for you will require adjustments, especially in the first few days. As a general rule you should start with a low dose and slowly increase the dose until the desired effects are achieved. Usually a dose of 10 to 20 mg taken 1 to 2 times a day is sufficient to achieve the desired effect.
