Why is it so Confusing Buying CBD?

Shopping for CBD Oil can be quite a confusing experience. Brands use overly vague language on their sites, like “CBD helps with homeostasis” or “daily wellness”. You’ll find it extremely hard to find what benefits hemp extracts actually offer. They won’t tell you how much CBD to take (or what’s even recommended). Most sites don’t even use the term CBD on their pages because they could get in trouble. Rather, you’ll find substitute terms, such as Hemp ExtractHemp Oil, or even Phytocannabinoid Oil being used.

WHY BRANDS CAN’T PROMOTE

What is interesting is that even though the government holds  a patent ( the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) refuses to approve CBD as a drug. The FDA’s inflexibility and the overall social stigma around cannabis continues to inhibit the research around CBD oil. That’s why when you visit any brand that sells CBD products, you’ll notice a disclaimer stating:

“These statements are not health claims, the FDA has not evaluated these claims. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.”

 

One of the more confusing aspects of shopping for CBD oil is when you have to choose from the different types of CBD products and their dosage. There’s a range of different types of hemp extract products available on the market: tinctures, capsules, concentrates, sprays, and even topicals.

On top of that, CBD companies offer their hemp oils in varying doses. For example, you’ll find bottles labeled as 100mg, 300mg, all the way to 1000+mg. It’s easy to assume the more milligrams, the stronger the CBD oil. Yet, how do you know what is the appropriate amount for your condition?

Sadly, CBD brands cannot make recommendations on what concentration customers should take. This is caused by liability issues since CBD has not been approved by the FDA as a drug. That’s why you’ll find common advice such as “We recommend you do your own research before deciding which concentration to buy”.

SO WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

If you believe in the benefits of hemp extract, these barriers shouldn’t stop your from trying out CBD products. Although it might be confusing at first, we encourage you to do your own research to learn more about hemp extracts.

Only time will tell if the US government will loosen its restriction around cannabis. Only then will more research and definitive science behind phytocannabinoids come about. Unfortunately, we can’t be sure that day will come anytime soon since big pharmaceutical companies continue to lobby hard against the legalization of cannabis.

In the meantime, our best advice is for you to do your own research before deciding which brand, which type of product, and which concentration to buy

Due to the fact that CBD produced promising results in a variety of mental disorders, specialists wonder if it could help ADHD patients as well. Considering that when ADHD is present in the brain of a person, the signs are elevated cortisol levels and low dopamine levels.

Which explains the constant state of irritation and the inability to calm down and relax, CBD could help by lowering cortisol and inducing a state of calmness.

While it is true that there is a specific medication that is prescribed in the case of ADHD patients, many complain about the unpleasant side-effects they produce, like constant headaches which often lead to a decrease in the quality of sleep.

Those that gave CBD oil a chance, said that the new treatment stopped their headaches and gave them the possibility, for some the first time in their lives, to actually get a hold of their mind.

CBD has nothing to do with an addictive substances and will not alter the perception ability of a person, this is why one can use CBD at any time during the day or night.

If you use CBD accordingly and utilize the right dose in your case, there are absolutely no risks. It is less likely for an overdose to happen and even if it does, health-related risks are minimum.

Plus, even if you decide to adopt this treatment for a long-term, you will not experience the “need” to take it, as the body will not develop any form of addiction toward it.

This is because the human body was designed to produce cannabinoids in a natural manner. Problems occur when these cannabinoids are not produced as it should.

The medication available for ADHD is meant to stimulate the production of dopamine, a chemical that is usually produced by the brain, responsible for our ability to unroll cognitive processes, like memorizing things and focusing on our activities.

Due to this fact, CBD reacts so well in our body, as the cannabinoids it contains will immediately bind with the right kind of receptors, restoring the balance in a way that no drugs can.

But, in the case of ADHD patients, there is an issue with dopamine, as the brain is not producing sufficient dopamine. According to the latest researches, CBD can do the same as specialized ADHD medication and that is to stimulate the production of dopamine and improve the brain function.

Thus, the cannabinoids, which are the active components of CBD oil, has a great potential at improving the state of mental health in people suffering from ADHD, making dopamine more available to their brains.

And the best part about this treatment is that it is safe to be used in the case of children as well, as it doesn’t trigger any addictions or unwanted psychoactive effects.
