20% CBD Oil

What Is CBD?

CBD, which is short for cannabidiol, is one of over 100 different cannabinoids found within the hemp or cannabis plant. CBD is extracted from the hemp plant, most commonly using a co2 extraction process, before then being used in a range of different products. One of the most commonly used products is CBD oil, which is made by mixing CBD with a carrier oil such as MCT oil or coconut oil.

What Is 20% CBD Oil?

20% CBD oil is one of the mid-strength CBD oils we sell here at The CBD Planet UK. The 20% refers to the concentration of CBD contained within the product. For example a 10ml bottle of CBD oil must have 2000mg of CBD in order for it to fall into the 20% category.

How Do I Take CBD Oil?

CBD oil products, including our 20% range, are most commonly consumed sublingually. This means that the CBD oil drops are placed underneath the tongue where they are held there for 30 seconds. By doing so, the CBD is absorbed into your bloodstream via the blood vessels beneath the tongue. This is considered an effective method of taking CBD oils but isn’t the only way. Others choose to mix CBD oils with their favorite foods to supercharge it with the benefits of CBD

How Much CBD Will I Consume Per Drop?

The amount of CBD you consume per drop depends on the size of the dropper, but roughly, in a 20% CBD oil you will consume 8mg of CBD per drop. We would therefore not recommend using more than 8 drops per day, as this would put you over the maximum daily recommended amount of 70mg.

How Long Will I Feel The Effects For?

When consumed sublingually, you can expect the effects of CBD oil to be felt for between 4-6 hours. This will differ depending on the individual as we each have unique endocannabinoid systems and will feel the effects differently. Other factors also play a part such as how much CBD you consume.

What Is The Difference Between Broad & Full Spectrum CBD Oil?

Broad and full spectrum cannabidiol are similar in that they both contain a range of natural cannabinoids and terpenes, however the main difference is the presence of the THC cannabinoid. Broad spectrum products have the THC content entirely removed during the extraction process, whereas full spectrum products contain up to 0.2% THC. It’s often claimed that full spectrum cannabidiol products provide what is known as an entourage effect, which is the belief that the THC and CBD work together to provide a greater effect than the CBD would individually.

Is 20% CBD Oil The Right Strength For Me?

This is particularly important if you take prescription medications, as the reaction between CBD and certain prescription medications may not be known.

Are There Any Side Effects When Using CBD Oil?

Although CBD oil is considered safe, it is not without its potential side effects. Fortunately, no serious side effects have been recorded from using CBD, although some minor side effects can be experienced. Luckily, the minor side effects usually only occur if you consume too much CBD, and the most commonly reported of these are diarrhea and drowsiness.
