What is CBD and How to Take it?

How does CBD oil work & what is it?  

Our bodies have a complicated network of receptors, called the endocannabinoid system. This system works to help our bodies stay balanced and in good overall health, even when external factors, stress and lifestyle choices threaten our wellbeing. CBD and other cannabinoids fit into the system of endocannabinoid receptors, which tries to keep us in good health by supporting many of our body’s physical processes. 

Many people choose to support their body and mind by adding CBD to their daily wellness routine. CBD or cannabidiol is just one of over 80 cannabinoids that can be extracted from hemp.

At Jersey Hemp, we sell Broad Spectrum CBD oil which contains CBD extracted from our own organic hemp along with other cannabinoids and beneficial plant compounds like terpenes and flavonoids. 

Which CBD product is right for you?

Some feel that using the whole plant maximises the benefits to your body and your wellness routine, so at Jersey Hemp we offer our customers as much natural quality as we can with our Soil Association Certified Organic Broad Spectrum CBD Oil. 

Will CBD get you high? 

No! At Jersey Hemp, we grow hemp, a member of the cannabis sativa family, which is high in CBD but not THC, the psychoactive element in street cannabis.

Hemp and cannabis are close relatives, but they’re not the same. Hemp has hardly any THC and much higher levels of CBD, the non-psychoactive compound that many choose to use to support their overall wellness. 

Which CBD oil should I choose? 

If you’re starting out with CBD, some people choose our 500mg CBD oil

500mg cbd oil

which is 5% in strength. Start with a few drops of a lower strength (a quarter of a pipette is about right) and then slowly work up to the recommended serving as you gauge your body’s reaction.

If you’re in any doubt about CBD, or have a serious medical condition, we’d always recommend seeking guidance from a medical professional. 

How do I take CBD? 

Taking CBD as drops of oil is the most common way. It’s the same approach as Rescue Remedy, a few drops placed under the tongue with a pipette and left to absorb. It’s one of the quickest and easiest ways to absorb the oil into the bloodstream.

If you’re not keen on the subtle ‘green’ taste or texture of the oil, you can add it to food – try a few drops in a fresh juice or in your morning flat white. 

cbd capsules

Alternatively, if you like to keep things simple, why not try our Broad Spectrum CBD Capsules? One capsule a day will give a regular dose and two capsules a day will give the maximum dose. 

When will I see results? 

Everyone who’s ever started a new vitamin or supplement routine knows that the amount of time to notice a difference depends on many lifestyle factors. We’re all different, so the time it takes for us to see results will vary from person to person.

If you’re starting out with CBD, take the recommended serving as indicated on the bottle for 4 to 6 weeks. If at the end of that time you’re still not where you want to be, then we suggest moving up to the next concentration or our Broad Spectrum CBD oil.

Missing servings can affect CBD’s ability to support your body, so we always recommend being consistent and taking CBD at the same time each day.
