CBD 101: The Basics
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, a chemical compound derived from the cannabis plant. This naturally occurring substance is often used in E-Liquids and oil drop products to help achieve relaxation and calmness. Unlike THC, which is the cannabinoid found in higher concentrations in marijuana, CBD does
not produce a “high.”
What are the benefits of CBD?
There are many benefits of CBD to meet a broad range of needs. CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system and is believed to help regulate:
- Hormone production
- Nervous system responses
- Immune system responses
What’s the difference between CBD isolate vs. full spectrum?
CBD isolate—is a pure, concentrated form of CBD containing no other cannabinoids (the diverse chemical compounds present in cannabis that include CBD, as well as other substances).
Full spectrum CBD—is CBD that contains all the naturally occurring plant compounds found in hemp, including other cannabinoids—like THC.
The CBD e juice products we sell contain varying amounts of CBD. The product labels will indicate the CBD content per serving.
Is CBD legal?
Yes, CBD products derived from hemp oil are legal to import and purchase in the United States and in over 40 countries worldwide, with varying levels of restriction. Specific local laws should be consulted.
How is CBD different from THC?
The CBD in products sold by Twelfth State Brands is derived from hemp. Unlike THC, the psychotropic chemical compound found in higher concentrations in marijuana plants, CBD is not psychoactive and does not cause a “high.”
CBD for First Timers
First time using CBD? Here’s what to know.
If you’ve never used CBD before, gaining more knowledge about format, dosing, and purchasing can help. First things first, make sure you know the basics of CBD and its benefits. Next, learn about which CBD e juice or CBD oils may be right for you.
CBD is available in a variety of formats. Learning more about your options can help you choose your best option.
Vape juice or CBD e liquid
CBD vape juice, or CBD e liquid, is in a liquid format, designed to be used with an e-cigarette or vaporizer. The CBD e juice is heated by the e-cig into vapor and inhaled, delivering CBD into your bloodstream.
CBD oil drops
CBD oil is taken orally, with drops of oil placed under your tongue. It is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream.
CBD tinctures are concentrated liquids that allow you to take CBD orally, as is, without inhalation.
CBD liniments are topical ointments that are applied direction to the skin in a targeted area.
4 considerations for choosing a format
- Delivery Method into Your Body—it’s different for each format, so think about how you want or need to take your CBD.
- Your Needs—identifying your needs and goals can help you choose the right delivery. If for instance, you want to affect your immune system, vaping or oral delivery will best deliver CBD through your bloodstream.
- Dosing and Frequency—depending on the format, there are different amounts and frequencies for dosing.
- Timing of Effect—for your needs and goals, think about whether you need a quick burst of CBD benefits or sustained delivery over a longer period of time.
About CBD dosing
Because each person’s body will process and be affected by CBD differently, it’s often recommended to start with a very low dose. This may mean starting below the recommended serving size on the product label. By starting with a low dose, you can see how your body reacts to the product and whether it will work for you. If you decide to increase your dose, wait before the CBD has exited your system so you can accurately gauge your reaction to the next higher dose. A trusted medical professional can help you guide you in the dosing process.
