Mother’s is proud to offer a variety of CBD shots in Bend, Oregon at our three locations. Over the last few weeks, we’ve received several questions about CBD. In this primer we’re talking what CBD is, where it’s from, and how safe it is to take CBD.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the name of a compound found in the cannabis plant. Researchers have been studying the potential therapeutic uses of CBD extensively over the last few years. Here’s a brief rundown on some of the most frequently asked questions about CBD and their answers.
Here’s What You Need to Know About CBD Shots in Bend
Will CBD Shots Get Me High?
No, CBD shots won’t get you high.
THC and CBD both come from marijuana, but the compounds have very different effects. THC is known for the psychoactive “high” it produces when broken down and introduced to the body when smoking or cooking it into foods. Unlike THC, CBD does not bind to the CB1 or CB2 receptors in your brain meaning that it doesn’t have the psychoactive effects of THC.
What Are the Benefits of CBD?
While CBD is not psychoactive, it does appear to produce significant changes and the body and may offer medical benefits to those who consume it. CBD has been proven to help reduce nausea, improve appetite, relieve pain, and reduce stress and anxiety in many users.
One study from the Journal of Experimental Medicine discovered that CBD reduced chronic pain and inflammation in mice. Likewise, a 2013 study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology found CBD to be an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anticonvulsant, anxiolytic, antiemetic, and antipsychotic agent, stating that CBD is a safe and effective treatment for neurodegenerative disorders. According to this study on cannabidiol and its clinical applications, CBD is a potential medicine for treating neuroinflammation, epilepsy, oxidative injury, vomiting, nausea, anxiety, and schizophrenia.
Another study published in Nature journal compared the effects of a public speaking test on healthy control patients and social anxiety disorder patients. 24 never before treated patients with social anxiety disorder were given either CBD or placebo an hour and a half before the test. The study explains that pretreatment with CBD significantly reduced anxiety, cognitive impairment, and discomfort in their speech performance compared to the placebo group.
How Much Should I Take?
Dosage varies from person to person and depending on the issue you are using CBD to treat. This article intends to serve as a starting point of reference. It is always safest to start small and gradually increase from there.
Herb recommends taking 2.5-15 mg daily for general health, 2.5-20 mg daily for chronic pain, and 40-160 mg daily for sleep disorders. The CBD Oil Review serving standard is 25 mg of CBD taken twice a day. They recommend that you increase dosage every 3-4 weeks by 25 mg until you achieve relief from your symptoms.
Mother’s CBD shots contain 25 mg of CBD each. With the dosage we provide, the CBD will take effect anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour after consuming. For the fastest results, take your CBD shot on an empty stomach.
