Can You Overdose on CBD? 700 402 The Farmula

Can You Overdose on CBD?

With more people using CBD for its laundry list of health and wellness benefits, it is important to be clear on the effects it can have, both positive and negative. It is important to note that while there is not enough THC to get you high in even full-spectrum CBD products, you can possibly take too much.

So, what happens if you take too much CBD?

According to research, if you consume too much CBD, you may experience negative side effects such as:

  •         Diarrhea
  •         Vomiting
  •         Drowsiness

How much is too much CBD?

According to studies, people can consume between 20 and 1,500 mg per day. That seems like a wide gap, but dosing depends on a lot of factors. For instance, how much CBD you can handle versus what your husband or wife can take without feeling negative effects will be different. So, as with anything, it is important to figure out what dosage is best for you specifically.

It has been reported that you must ingest 20,000 mg all at once (or within a short period of time) for it to be toxic to your body, but you can still experience negative side effects with less depending on your body. It is also important to keep in mind that even though it may not be toxic to your body if you take a ton CBD, it can still make you feel super drowsy and funky.

If you purchase CBD gummies and you have children, it is important to keep them out of reach. If children eat a bunch of CBD gummies, thinking they are candy, they can suffer breathing problems.

CBD may interact with certain medications

CBD has been known to interact with certain medications, so it is important to ask your doctor before using CBD if you are taking a prescription medication. A good rule of thumb is to stay clear of consuming CBD if you are taking a medication that has a grapefruit warning. CBD and grapefruit may cause interactions with the same medications.

Some of the more common medications that may interact with grapefruit juice include:

  • Statin cholesterol drugs including atorvastatin (Lipitor), lovastatin and simvastatin (Zocor)
  • Calcium channel blockers
  • Loratadine (Claritin)

To be sure, ask your doctor before taking any additional supplements.

So the big question…is CBD safe to take?

Yes. It is safe to take and is known for its health and wellness benefits. While there doesn’t appear to be a high risk for overdose, if you take too much for your body, it may still cause you to be super tired, feel weird and experience stomach issues. So, if you are new to using CBD, start slow and see what you can handle comfortably.

It is also important to keep in mind that when you are purchasing CBD products you should investigate the company you are getting them from to make sure you are getting high quality CBD. Make sure they have third party lab test results available to ensure the CBD is free from pesticides and dangerous chemicals.

Can CBD Cream be Used for Inflammation? 750 500 The Farmula

Can CBD Cream be Used for Inflammation?

More and more people are using CBD cream to treat pain and inflammation caused by arthritis as well as joint and muscle pain. So, to answer the question…yes. CBD cream can be used for inflammation. In fact, that is one of the main things it is used for.

How does CBD Cream help with inflammation?

CBD is a naturally occurring compound found in the hemp plant, just like THC. It is a cannabinoid that interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) and, as a result, has several healing properties. It binds with the body’s CB2 receptor, which has a direct impact on our immune system. This means that CBD inhibits the production of inflammatory processes in the body, which in turn helps reduce pain and arthritis.

Unlike THC, CBD does not have psychoactive properties Consumers use it for its health benefits, including its anti-inflammatory and pain reducing properties.

How do you use CBD Cream?

Unlike having to ingest CBD oils, many consumers like using CBD creams for inflammation, because it can be applied directly to painful joints and muscles like the neck and back, knees, shoulders, hands, or wrists. When applied to the skin, the effects of CBD are felt almost instantly, whereas if you drop CBD oil under the tongue it takes longer for the effects to be felt.

Due to the healing effects of CBD cream, it is often used to reduce symptoms of:

  • Arthritis
  • Severe back pain
  • Achy joints from working out or playing sports
  • Neck pain
  • Hand and wrist pain
  • Tired feet

Some of the best CBD creams contain other healing ingredients that work together with the CBD for optimal results. These ingredients vary depending on the brand, but can include:

  • Menthol
  • Eucalyptus
  • Peppermint
  • Shae Butter
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Vitamin E Oil
  • Avocado Oil

CBD creams are also used to sooth dry skin and help with skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema.

What to look for when choosing a CBD Cream

If you are new to the CBD world and are looking for a high quality CBD cream, there are a few things to look for as you’re shopping.

  1.       Make sure the company you are purchasing your CBD cream from is a reputable company that gets its hemp from a farm that practices safe and organic practices. This will ensure your CBD cream is free from pesticides or other harmful additives.
  2.       Look at how much CBD is in the cream. It is also important to see whether it is full or broad-spectrum CBD or CBD isolate. If you are worried about having even the smallest traces of THC in your products, make sure it is THC free.
  3.       See if the product is organic, which means it uses all natural and organic hemp and other ingredients.
  4.       You can check to make sure the company tests its products with a third-party lab to check for safety and quality. You should be able to find the third-party test results on their website easily if they are a good quality company.
  5.       Its always a good idea to look through reviews about the company and its products to see what other consumers are saying about them.

Can CBD Cream Be Used for Pain? 688 516 The Farmula

Can CBD Cream Be Used for Pain?

One of the most common things CBD cream is used for is to help reduce muscle and joint pain. When you rub CBD cream onto your skin, it is absorbed into the body and helps reduce the inflammation that is causing pain in the affected area. So, in short…yes. CBD cream can be used for pain.

Keep in mind that more extensive research needs to be conducted to determine if CBD products are as helpful as other medications. But if you are experiencing pain in your muscles or joints or are suffering from skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis, you may consider trying a CBD cream to see how it works for you.

What is Exactly is CBD Cream?

To make CBD cream, manufacturers add CBD to oils such as hemp seed oil, avocado oil, Vitamin E oil and /or jojoba oil and then they use the infused oil as an ingredient in lotions, creams, balms, and salves. CBD itself is known to have anti-inflammatory properties which reduce symptoms of certain skin conditions as well as help manage joint and muscle pain.

Most CBD creams use broad-spectrum CBD which has other compounds from the cannabis plant such as terpenes and may or may not contain tiny traces of THC. But don’t worry! If there is THC in the CBD, it would be such a trace amount that you wouldn’t feel any of the effects such as paranoia or heightened anxiety.

What are the Benefits of CBD Creams?

  • Several health benefits have been associated with CBD creams, including:
  • Reducing pain caused by arthritis.
  • Reducing pain for people who have peripheral neuropathy, a condition where nerve damage causes numbness, discomfort and weakness in the feet and hands.
  • Alleviating symptoms of skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema.
  • Reducing feelings of anxiety and stress.
  • Reducing pain and stiffening around a person’s jaw who is suffering from temporomandibular disorder (TMD).

What to Look for in a Quality CBD Cream

Companies everywhere are popping up and selling CBD creams, but how do you really know you are getting the highest quality CBD cream? Here are a few things to think about as you begin your hunt for CBD cream:

  • Make sure the company you are buying the cream from has a third-party lab testing that reflects what they claim. Results from testing should be posted on their website. If you cannot find them, you should email and ask!
  • Look to see if the CBD is full spectrum, broad spectrum or a CBD isolate. If you do not want any THC at all, you will want to look for a cream that says made with CBD isolate or with broad spectrum CBD with zero THC. Full spectrum will contain THC as well as other compounds from the cannabis plant.
  • Check the ingredient list to see what other ingredients are in the cream. You’ll want to make sure all the ingredients listed are natural and high quality.

Where to Buy Sour Zkittles in the UK

The most mouth-watering CBD terpsolates are made by infusing natural plant terpenes into hemp extract. The Farmula has handpicked the “Sour Zkittles” terpene profile from the well-known, highly sought-after strain of cannabis to add to its all natural, THC-free terpsolates.

We chose this profile because of its intense, mouth-watering, fruitful flavour that is followed up with a sour hit. By infusing it into our all-natural terpenes, we’ve created the ultimate flavour punch that will leave you feeling relaxed and mellow.

What is Terpsolate?

Terpsolate is a type of CBD isolate that is infused with natural hemp terpenes and is popular as tinctures or oils. While consumers are still getting CBD in its purest form, free of THC, they are also getting the benefits of the added terpenes. Thus, terpsolates provide a more therapeutic experience for the user than CBD isolates on their own.

What is CBD Isolate?

CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD. When it is extracted from the cannabis plant, all other compounds are removed so it is straight CBD. Consumers in the UK who want to receive the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without consuming THC often turn to CBD isolate.

Benefits of CBD isolates include:

  • Regulate immunity
  • Regulate hormones
  • Reduce stress
  • Powerful antioxidant

What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are also compounds that are derived from the hemp plant. They are responsible for creating the smell and flavor profile within plants and herbs and have beneficial qualities as well. Each terpene has its own unique smell and taste and set of unique health benefits. By adding terpenes to CBD isolates, consumers get to enjoy the benefits of CBD along with yummy flavors and tantalizing smells.

Sour Zkittles terpsolate is edible, so you can get creative when consuming it. You can use it to enhance the flavor of certain dishes as you are cooking and really enjoy the aroma and flavor it puts out.

Broad Spectrum CBD: Fact and Myth 850 739 The Farmula

Broad Spectrum CBD: Fact and Myth

There are three main forms of cannabidiol (CBD): broad spectrum CBD, full spectrum CBD and CBD isolate. Before we get into the myths and facts about broad spectrum CBD, let’s first talk about the differences between the three types.

Full spectrum contains CBD along with all the other compounds from the cannabis plant that work together to produce maximum effects and benefits. This is referred to as the “entourage effect” and is the strongest of the three types of CBD products. Full spectrum CBD contains other compounds such as terpenes which are responsible for the smell and taste of the cannabis plant as well as trace amounts of THC.

CBD isolate is on the opposite end of the spectrum and is basically just as it sounds…isolated CBD. It is CBD in its purest form and is extracted and stripped of all other compounds. But, because it does not have the entourage effect like full spectrum CBD, it doesn’t have the full benefits of full spectrum CBD.

Broad spectrum CBD is found kind of between the other two. While it does contain terpenes and other important compounds, it is stripped of most of the THC, but can contain super trace amounts.

So, which of the Three Types is Best?

Well, this is really up to each individual. CBD does not get you high. Even full spectrum CBD will not get you high like regular THC, but some people don’t want even the slightest amount of THC in their systems. So, for these people, broad spectrum or CBD isolate would be the way to go.

Some people like broad or full spectrum more than CBD isolate, because the effects aren’t as strong with CBD isolate and some of the benefits may not be felt. Again, this all goes with personal preference.

So, what is the Truth Behind Broad Spectrum CBD?

Now that we’ve give you a brief intro into what each type of CBD looks like, we can discuss some of the facts and myths about broad spectrum CBD.

Myth: Broad spectrum CBD does not contain any THC.

Fact: Even broad-spectrum CBD that says it is THC may contain trace amounts.

Myth: Broad spectrum CBD does not come from the marijuana plant.

Fact: It comes from the hemp plant.

Myth: You can get high from broad spectrum CBD.

Fact: The amount of THC found in any CBD product, even full spectrum, is so small that it cannot get you high.

Myth: Broad spectrum CBD only works for some people.

Fact: CBD works for everyone, but in different ways. While some people will feel the effects right away, others need to use it every day for several days before they start noticing the benefits.

Myth: CBD makes you paranoid.

Fact: CBD does not make you paranoid. Unlike THC and marijuana, CBD products (even those that contain trace amounts of THC) cannot get you high or result in paranoia.

Myth: CBD causes anxiety.

Fact: It is actually the opposite. CBD does not cause anxiety, but instead has calming and relaxing effects that can help ease anxiety and help with other mood disorders.

How Do You Use Terpenes? 1024 640 The Farmula

How Do You Use Terpenes?

With the new term “terpenes” arriving on the CBD scene recently, it is no surprise so many of you are asking how you use them. To understand how to effectively use terpenes, let us first talk about what they are and why they exist…

OK…so what are terpenes? Terpenes are basically the essential oils produced by plants and other natural resources that give them their distinct smell and flavour. They are what give lemons that uplifting burst of citrus and pine trees that distinct smell we all associate with Christmas.

Terpenes are found everywhere in nature and no matter where you go, what you eat, and what you do, you will encounter terpenes every single day of your life.

There are more than 30,000 different strands that have been identified so far. Isn’t that crazy to think about? They are what give fruit, herbs, and plants their distinct smell and taste. Just like fruits and other plants, the terpenes found in hemp plants are what give each strain of hemp a unique smell and taste.

What are Terpenes Used for and Why Do They Exist?

Well, we now know that terpenes are what give plants and herbs their distinct aroma and taste. But why? In nature, terpenes are used as a defence mechanism for plants to keep bugs and predators away. But, as consumers, we may use terpenes in the form of essential oils to make our homes smell a certain way or in our food to make certain flavours stand out.

So, How Do You Use Terpenes?

Terpenes in the raw form are very potent. When they are extracted from a plant, they should be diluted and used carefully before being added to food or placed on the skin.

They can be used in…

  •         Essential oils to fill a home with a certain aroma and release benefits such as energy or calming effects.
  •         Foods…as more people are discovering the benefits of terpenes, more people are cooking with them and using them to enhance the flavors of their foods. For instance, the terpene found in lemons that gives them a vibrant citrus smell and taste can be used to add a fresh flavor and smell to olive oil to create a vibrant, fresh salad dressing.
  •         CBD oils and isolates to enhance the benefits…when cannabis terpenes are combined with CBD isolates, they enhance the benefits and add a smell and taste. Full spectrum CBD oils comes with terpenes as well and are said to have stronger benefits than CBD isolates alone.

Types of Terpenes Found in Cannabis

Hundreds of different terpenes have been found in cannabis, so we will just discuss a few of the most common here so you can get a better understanding of what they do for the cannabis plant.

  1.       Myrcene: this is the most abundant terpene found in cannabis and is associated with and earthy, clove-like smell. This terpene helps reduce inflammation and pain and has sedative effects. Cannabis strains with this terpene include Skunk XL, White Widow and Special Kush.
  2.       Limonene: this terpene is known for its citrusy smell and is found in cannabis strains such as Super Lemon Haze, Sour Diesel and Jack the Ripper. It is known to enhance mood and reduce stress.
  3.       Linalool: this terpene is what gives cannabis that distinct floral aroma. It can be found in other plants such as lavender, mint and cinnamon. It is known to help with depression, seizures, insomnia and cancer.
  4.       Caryophyllene: this terpene has a spicy and peppery smell and taste and can be found naturally in spices such as pepper cloves and oregano.

While the list goes on and on, these are just a small handful of the most common. In short, terpenes are used to enhance the smell and flavor and each strain comes with its own set of health benefits.

CBD Isolate vs. Full Spectrum CBD Oil 1000 600 The Farmula

CBD Isolate vs. Full Spectrum CBD Oil

If you are looking into trying CBD for the first time, you may be wondering what product is best for you. You may have heard of the terms CBD isolate and full spectrum CBD oil and are wondering what the difference is. This is a common question, so we are going to discuss both forms of CBD and the differences between them so you can make the choice that is right for you!

CBD Isolate vs. CBD Oil…How They Compare and Differ

Both CBD isolate and full spectrum CBD oil are extracted from the cannabis plant. They differ, however, because unlike CBD isolate, full spectrum CBD contains other cannabinoids from the cannabis plant, including terpenes, flavonoids, and THC. These other compounds have special benefits as well which make the CBD more effective.

When you combine cannabinoids together, it creates what is called the entourage effect which is believed to make the effects of each cannabinoid even stronger. So, many people prefer to use full spectrum CBD oil because they are getting additional benefits from the CBD as well as the THC and terpenes.

At this point, you may be asking yourself what are terpenes?

Terpenes are the compounds found in plants and herbs that give them their unique scent and flavor. For instance, the terpenes found in lemons are what give them the burst of citrus smell and flavor and the terpenes found in lavender are what give it that calming aroma and flavor. Terpenes have their own health benefits as well and are known for anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety properties.

So why would you not want the added cannabinoids?

Some people prefer CBD isolate, because it is only CBD. Just like the name suggests, the CBD goes through an additional process to isolate the CBD from all other cannabinoids, so it is in its purest form. It has no taste or smell because the terpenes are removed and it does not contain THC or other flavonoids.

The benefit of CBD isolate is you are ONLY getting the CBD. So, if you are concerned about having even the smallest amount of THC in your system (which many people are), you can rest assured you will only be getting CBD.

When you consume CBD isolate, you may not experience the benefits at their strongest, however. Keep in mind, it is believed that CBD is most effective when combined with other cannabinoids.

It is important to mention that full spectrum CBD does NOT get you high.

Even though it does contain small amounts of THC, you will not feel a head change if you consume full spectrum CBD oil. You will simply get the additional benefits of THC like the anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory and pain reducing properties of the cannabinoid.

So, which is right for you?

Well, it depends! If you are willing to try full spectrum CBD oil to get the most health benefits as possible, go for it! But, if you are still unsure of the THC part and want to try CBD isolate first, we say go that route! Whatever your comfort level is, start there. Remember, you can always try CBD isolate and then graduate to full spectrum CBD oil when you feel you’re ready.

No matter what CBD product you try, just make sure it is made from a company that tests its products at a third party lab to make sure they are safe and free from harmful additives.

At The Farmula, all our products are sourced from hemp that is grown organically. We do not add any additives or harmful chemicals during the manufacturing process, and we have all our products tested by a third-party lab. We are committed to providing the safest, highest-quality CBD products and are here to help you choose the product that is right for you! Contact us anytime for help!

CBD Oil vs Hemp-1
What is the Difference Between Hemp Oil and CBD Oil? 1080 565 The Farmula

What is the Difference Between Hemp Oil and CBD Oil?

CBD oil has become increasingly popular as more consumers gain interest in all its benefits. But, to ensure you are getting the right products, it is important to understand what each name actually means. “Hemp oil” is another way some people refer to CBD oil. But, hemp seed oil is a very different product, so we will discuss the difference between hemp seed oil and CBD oil here.

While both hemp seed oil and CBD oil come from the hemp plant, they are NOT the same.

CBD oil is made with the stalks, leaves and flowers of the hemp plant, all of which contain high levels of CBD. Hempseed oil, on the other hand, is made from the seeds of the cannabis plant, and does not contain any CBD.

Hempseed oil and CBD oil are both packed with nutrients and are associated with many health benefits, that is why they are both in high demand.

So, what is Hemp Seed Oil Used for?

Hemp seed oil contains high levels of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids as well as other antioxidants. It also contains vitamin D and B vitamins, so it is used in many products. Hempseed oil is never used for recreational purposes as it does not contain THC.

When you look at certain nutrition products such as snack bars, breads and yogurts that contain hemp seed oil, this is because it is considered an excellent source for nutrients such as fatty acids and amino acids. Health benefits that have been associated with hemp seed oil include:

  •         Cardiovascular health benefits
  •         Improving gastrointestinal conditions
  •         Helping to relieve constipation
  •         Strengthening the immune system

Hemp seed oil is also used widely by the beauty and cosmetic industries because it can improve skin conditions and has anti-aging effects. Hempseed oil is used in several skincare products because it keeps the skin looking supple and hydrated and is known for…

  •         Not clogging pores
  •         Helping with skin inflammation
  •         Providing super moisture

CBD Oil, On the Other Hand…

If you are new to the CBD game, you may see CBD oil in three different forms: full-spectrum CBD oil, which contains all the compounds of the cannabis plant; broad spectrum, which contains several compounds but no THC; and CBD isolate, which is CBD in its pure form.

Several health benefits have been associated with CBD oil, including:

  •         Reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression
  •         Reducing pain and inflammation
  •         Helping with conditions such as epilepsy

Just like its cousin hemp seed oil, CBD oil is also used widely in the beauty industry because it also is a powerful anti-inflammatory and is known to help with…

  •         Acne
  •         Eczema
  •         Rashes
  •         Psoriasis
  •         Sensitive skin

The hemp plant is packed with nutrients and has several health benefits. While hemp seed oil and CBD oil are two completely different products that are derived from different parts of the cannabis plant, they are both wonderful products that are rich with vitamins and nutrients.

How Does CBD Oil Make You Feel? 1080 486 The Farmula

How Does CBD Oil Make You Feel?

Many people use CBD oil for its naturally calming effects, however, it produces a different feeling than THC does. To better understand how it makes us feel, let us first talk about how it interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

What is the ECS?

The ECS is full of endocannabinoids which are what the cannabinoids bind to when they are consumed. Unlike THC, which activates the receptors, CBD stops the CB1 receptors from working. CBD binds to other targets throughout the body as well, creating therapeutic reactions. So, when CBD oil enters the body and reacts with the ECS and other targets in the body, it creates a relaxing effect and can improve mood. Because of the way it interacts with the ECS, it has been known to help with inflammation, pain, anxiety, and other conditions.

So How Exactly Does CBD Oil Make You Feel?

Well, this of course depends on the type of CBD oil you ingest, how much you consume and several other factors. If you ask people who use CBD oil on the regular how it makes them feel, the most common answer will be…

  •         Calm
  •         Relaxed
  •         Pain free
  •         Less anxious
  •         Better mood

Different CBD Oil Products

How you feel after using CBD oil will also depend on the type of CBD oil you are using. The following are three different forms of CBD oil:

  1.       Full-spectrum CBD oil: full spectrum CBD oil means that the product contains all the compounds in the hemp plant, including terpenes, cannabinol (CBN), cannabigerol (CBG) and possibly THC. None of the other naturally occurring compounds are filtered out. When all the compounds are together, they help enhance the effects of the CBD, so you will likely feel stronger effects from full-spectrum CBD.
  2.       Broad spectrum CBD oil: broad spectrum CBD oil refers to a product that contains almost all the naturally occurring compounds in the plant. The biggest difference between this and full spectrum is that there is an additional filtration process that removes all traces of THC.
  3.       CBD isolate: another type of CBD is CBD isolate, which is just as it sounds — isolated CBD. When it is made, it is stripped from all other compounds, so you are getting pure CBD alone. CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD possible.

Are There Side Effects Associated with CBD Oil?

While most people do not complain of side effects, they can occur, especially when a large dose is taken. Reported side effects in some users include:

  •         Tiredness
  •         Diarrhea
  •         Changes in appetite and weight
  •         Nausea
  •         Irritability
