If you followed health trends over the past few years, you probably found something called: CBD. Cannabinoid CBD (short for cannabidiol) has been shown to be effective against all kinds of ailments. It is usually consumed by dropping a few drops of a diluted CBD oil under the tongue. Although we believe there is an easier way to do this.
What is CBD?
For those who haven’t heard of CBD before You’re missing out. Since the discovery of non-psychoactive cannabinoid CBD as a health supplement a few years ago, people have been using this substance exponentially to treat all kinds of ailments. From (chronic) pain, to sleep disorders and ADD, to extreme fatigue.
The reason why CBD could help with all these things, all very different, lies with us. And that’s not a spiritual saying intended to drive sales. All human beings and most animals actually have an endogenous (meaning body-specific) system that is responsible for almost ALL the processes in their body.
It is the body’s own signaling system, known as the endocannabinoid system or SEC. By stimulating the receptors of this system, which are found throughout the human body, cannabinoids such as CBD (non-psychoactive) and THC (psychoactive) can regulate these systems.
The usual way to consume CBD is to drop a couple of drops of a diluted CBD extract under the tongue. To dilute this extract, companies usually use olive oil or something similar, making the substance difficult to absorb through the thick tissue in the mouth, resulting in an absorption of about 6-12% of the active components in the oil. This “CBD Oil” is made from either pure CBD crystals or a full spectrum extract of hemp or cannabis strains containing CBD.
In contrast to pure crystals, full-spectrum extracts also contain other cannabinoids; and the aromatic components of cannabis called terpenes. Terpenes are responsible for the taste of each cannabis variety, but they also determine whether you will get a high or a buzz.
Therefore, cannabis products containing terpenes, like our own CBD Oil from Amsterdam Genetics, are usually rated higher than CBD products made with crystals only. For more information on terpenes, please see our article: “Choosing the right cannabis strain: A matter of aroma”.
CBD Soluble Tablets
The latest addition to our range of innovative CBD products is the CBD Soluble Tablets, with active CBD of 12mg or 24mg per tablet. Compared to CBD oil, our CBD soluble tablets are easy and convenient to dose and transport, and are impregnated with vitamin C for a healthier effect.
The use of soluble CBD tablets is also somewhat more economical than the consumption of CBD oil. Due to the microscopic size of the CBD molecules in the tablets, everything is absorbed through the tissue of the mouth, instead of only 6-12% as is the case with CBD Oil. So you will actually benefit from ALL the CBD in the tablet, compared to only 6-12% of the CBD in the oils.
