Greeneo CBD oils offer two very specific formulations, and always natural CBD from European organic hemp. The Midday Oil, available in 500 and 1000mg, will bring its benefits during the day. The Evening Oil will be able to dispense its relaxing and soothing benefits at the end of the day and for the whole night.
What is CBD oil?
Effectively better known under its abbreviation CBD, cannabidiol is one of the multiple components of the hemp plant. CBD oil is made from cannabidiol extracted from hemp, then infused and diluted in conventional oils like olive oil or coconut oil. The cannabidiol is indeed more diluted in fatty substances, and the oil allows a practical and easy dosage, in addition to being able to be transported in small vials like any other product. It is consumed either by keeping it 30 seconds under the tongue, or by direct ingestion, alone or mixed with other ingredients. Some CBD oils can also replace more traditional edible oils.
What is the purpose of CBD oil?
We must dissociate here the therapeutic effects of CBD from its effects on the daily well-being.
CBD oil has been studied for its potential role in alleviating the symptoms of many common health problems, including anxiety, depression, acne and heart disease.
CBD oil is also known to have been used to reduce seizures in children, with very impressive effects.
All of these medical uses, however, require medical diagnosis and monitoring, followed by a prescription for cannabis-based medicine. As Greeneo CBD oils are not medical, our products are only intended for daily use and well-being. What is the difference? On the one hand the dosage, much lower, and on the other hand the absence of THC in our products, unlike drugs like Sativex.
Our CBD oils can therefore be used to relieve anxiety or promote a good sleep cycle, to relax or to help reduce certain inflammations.
What are the potential side effects?
Although CBD is generally well tolerated and considered safe, it can cause adverse effects in some people.
Side effects noted in studies include :
- Changes in appetite and weight
CBD is also known to interact with several medications. Before you start using CBD oil, discuss it with your doctor to ensure your safety and avoid potentially dangerous interactions.
This is especially important if you are taking any medications or supplements that come with a "grapefruit warning." Grapefruit and CBD interfere with cytochromes P450, a group of enzymes that are important for drug metabolism.
A study in mice showed that CBD-rich cannabis extracts could cause liver toxicity. However, the study used an astronomical dosage of CBD, which is difficult to reproduce with commercial products.
How long does it take for CBD to work?
As a general rule, you should start to feel the effects of CBD oil on average within 15 minutes if you take it sublingually, but it can take more or less time depending on the individual.
When ingested, you have to wait for the digestion cycle and therefore a few hours before the liver can pass the CBD into the bloodstream.
What dosage should I choose for my CBD oil?
The amount of CBD you should take depends on several factors, including your weight, the effect you expect and your metabolism.
In other words, there are many variables that determine how much CBD to take. It's always best to start with a lower dose and gradually increase. You can start with 20 to 40 mg per day, then after a week, increase that amount by 5 mg. You can then continue until you find the minimum effective dose, which you should feel when your symptoms reduce or disappear.
It is then wise to keep track of how much CBD you are taking and if your symptoms are improving. Write it down on paper or in a notes app on your phone.
Can I apply CBD oil to my skin?
The real benefit of CBD oil when applied to the skin is that it can work almost immediately and directly on the area that needs it. The dosages of CBD oils are higher than CBD cosmetics, however, and their formulation is not intended for topical use. To get the most out of the effects of CBD in topical application, it is best to prefer our CBD balm, which can be used to treat a very specific area of your body.
