Frequently Asked Questions / Info Centre

Welcome to our CBD info centre, We often hear similarly themed queries when it comes to new users of CBD, especially with all the new research that’s continuously coming out. That’s why we’ve popped down some of the most common questions, concerns and info so you can browse through it as you decide whether CBD is for you. If you don’t find the answer you’re after, please let us know.

  • We’ll keep it simple. It’s a natural ingredient found in hemp and cannabis (naturally occurring compound). Of the 60+ naturally occuring cannabinoid compounds, it’s got the widest range of all healing properties.

  • That’s up to you and what you’re most comfortable with. There are many ways to take it – you could inhale it as cannabis smoke or vapor, drink it, spray it as an aerosol. It can also be dried, served as a liquid or in capsules. In our case, we produce and supply it as an oil.

  • Ok, we’re going to get a bit scientific here. CBD has been found to interact with a variety of different biological targets, including cannabinoid receptors and other neurotransmitter receptors.

  • CBD is not the stuff that makes you high. That’s THC. While they are both found on the same plant, but they just come from different places. You can extract THC from the flowers or leaves of a hemp plant called the cannabis sativa. CBD is specifically extracted from the stems and seeds.

  • To answer this question we need to start by landing the concept of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Essentially, it’s one of the major organ systems that make up the human body (like your muscular or nervous system, for example). When it was discovered in the early 1990s, it opened up a whole host of information to help us better understand the ways many of our biological systems work. In fact, we’re still in the process of discovering it’s full benefits and how it works. 

    Every person (and all vertebrates and invertebrates, in fact) has a endocannabinoid system, which means they have cannabinoid receptors all over their body (the majority being in the brain). Our bodies naturally produce receptors called endocannabinoids that bind with those in CBD, and the result is that they regulate the way the immune system works (they fine tune homeostasis so all our systems are balanced and in tune with one another). Because it promotes homeostasis, it’s able to positively many bodily processes like sleep, memory, general mood and anxiety, inflammation and pain and appetite.

    This is a fascinating topic and there’s still a lot to learn and know about the endocannabinoid system  but if this interests you, take a look at this article that unpacks “7 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About the Endocannabinoid System”

  • Nope, they are not. Hemp seed oil is derived from the actual seeds, so it’s similar to the consistency of sunflower seed oil. It also doesn’t contain any cannabinoids but it’s super rich in essential fatty acids, which makes an ideal carrier oil. If you’re after a balanced natural sources of omega-3 & 6 essential fatty acids, hemp seed oil is your friend. The carrier oil for our CANNAZA oil is organically grown hemp seed oil.

  • Studies have shown that the use of CBD oil can help reduce anxiety, and through its antioxidant properties can also assist in reducing the effects of inflammation. If you’re struggling from inflammation (after an injury, for example) and it lingers while you’re trying to get on with life, it can cause chronic pain. Remember that inflammation is a totally normal and natural part of the healing process, it’s when it starts to impact your ability to get on with your daily life that you can consider the help of CBD. This is why CBD oil is known to be used, and effective in people who suffer from conditions where inflammation is common – like multiple sclerosis, colitis and arthritis.

    Here’s a YouTube video that goes into more detail about the benefits and physiological effects of CBD on the human body.

  • In essence, the CBD, along with your endocannabinoid system (ECS) can actually go beyond just controlling symptoms (chronic pain, for example) you may be experiencing, and has been known to help improve certain conditions. To get a sense of how this could work for you, you can read up about the endocannabinoid system (a hugely influential physiologic system in the human body that can help with establishing and maintaining health).

  • At the moment, CBD is known to treat Multiple sclerosis pain and epilepsy specifically.

  • Remember that all vertebrates have an endocannabinoid system. So that means that CBD will work exactly as it does in our human bodies (the CBD oil reacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors that are naturally occuring). Some occasions where CBD can be beneficial to your fur-baby would be during a thunderstorm, on a long car trip or an outing (if they’re the anxious type). We also know that when our animals get older, they also experience inflammation and pressure on their joints, so it can be helpful in alleviating the pain they experience. Along with the above, CBD can also be useful when it comes to excessive fur loss, skin complications and even soothing intestinal inflammation. Perhaps consider chatting to your vet before you give your 4-legged friend CBD, after all, they should know them best.

  • The body’s endocannabinoid system, discovered in the early 1990s led to a revolution in the understanding of the working of many of our biological systems. Cannabinoid receptors are widespread in the body, mostly in the brain nervous system, but also in every organ, your skin and digestive system. Your body naturally produce endocannabinoids that interact with these receptors and they are not surprisingly involved in regulating a wide variety of bodily processes like appetite, mood, memory, neuroprotection, stress relief, sleep, immune response, pre- and postnatal development, and regulating the body’s general state of balance.
