lemon cake and cbd

Lemon and CBD Cake

Feeling a bit tired around nap time? Go into “tea time” mode with our twist on a famous lemon cake recipe. Nothing like it to revive the taste buds, and endocannabinoids. Especially, if you accompany your cake with a CBD tea.

Ingredients

(For 6 people)

– 200g sugar
– 120g melted butter
– 150g of flour
– 3 eggs
– 3 lemons

– Zest of one lemon
– 1 teaspoon of baking powder
– Powdered sugar
– 10 drops of 4% cbd

Preparation

Prepare the cake tin by putting soft butter on the sides and putting baking paper.

Melt the butter in pieces in a saucepan. Pour it in a bowl and add the sugar, the CBD, the zest of a lemon, then mix. Add the eggs one by one, mixing each time, then the flour and the yeast while whisking the mixture.

Tip: you can replace the melted butter with a hazelnut butter (browned over low heat) which will give a better taste.

Cut the lemons in half and squeeze them to obtain the juice. You must incorporate 80g of lemon juice in the mixture obtained. If there is any extra juice, make a lemon squeeze with it!

Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake for 45 minutes in a preheated oven at 165°. Check the cooking by placing the blade of a knife in the heart of the cake. When it comes out clean (dry) your cake is cooked. If not, extend the cooking time by 5 minutes.

Turn the cake out onto a rack and wrap it in plastic wrap so that it stays soft as it cools. Remove the plastic wrap when the cake is cooled.

Variation

From an aesthetic point of view, and also for greed, you can make a glaze for your cake. To do this, mix powdered sugar with the juice of half a lemon, the equivalent of about 30 grams of lemon juice. You must obtain a white icing, not too hard, but not too liquid either. If necessary, adjust your dosage.

When your cake is cooled, place it on a rack, itself placed on a dish (to recover the glaze surplus) and cover the cake with your glaze. But as today we eat first with our eyes and we make everyone enjoy it, don’t forget the little picture!…

cannabis use in canada

Canada: Cannabis use after legalization

Since the legalization of cannabis in some countries, we are finally able to collect valid data about cannabis consumption in different parts of the population. This is the case in the Quebec region, and the CBD Tester team thought it would be good to share with you these very informative figures on cannabis consumption since legalization and the appearance of the COVID

Post-legalization cannabis use among youth

Cannabis use among youth aged 15 to 17 in the Canadian province of Quebec declined by about 3% between 2018 and 2021, reveal data from the Quebec Cannabis Survey, recently released by the Institut de la statistique du Québec. In contrast, in all other age groups, after age 18, post-legalization cannabis use has increased over the past three years.
Held between February and June 2021, the third edition of the “Quebec Cannabis Survey (QCS)” examined the frequency of cannabis use as well as various aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic related to its use.

Cannabis use after legalization … and since COVID

The COVID-19 pandemic appears to have had an impact on some users. Of the 20% of Quebecers who used cannabis in the past year, 24% reported an increase in use due to the pandemic, while 72% reported no change in use. Cannabis users with high levels of psychological distress, however, were more likely to report an increase in cannabis use due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Institut de la statistique du Québec produces, analyzes and disseminates official, objective and quality statistical information on various aspects of Quebec society. The QSS, conducted by the Institut de la statistique du Québec on behalf of the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux, aims to monitor changes in cannabis use. The first edition of the survey was conducted in 2018, before the legalization of cannabis. The second (2019) and third (2021) editions will continue the study of cannabis use patterns in Quebec and its evolution since legalization.

The detailed results of the third edition will be available in April 2022.…

CBD legislation in Europe : What’s the current status?

The legal status of cannabis, its derivatives and its uses is far from being a model of harmony on the old continent. Here is an overview of the different legislations, most of them almost permanent, within the European community.

The spectrum of cannabis uses is wide. Four main uses stand out: medical use, recreational use, wellness use related to CBD products and industrial hemp exploitation. Due to the controversial status of cannabis, these uses are sometimes prohibited, condemned or encouraged. Indeed, several factors can determine whether a cannabis derivative is legally available for consumption and purchase, or not. Thus, each country looks at and welcomes these uses differently depending on its drug policy, while keeping the general EU regulations as a guideline.

You want to know the legal status of cannabis and its derivatives in the EU countries? We offer you a legislative tour on the issue.

Reminder regarding the UE cannabis/CBD legislation

According to EU (European Union) legislation, hemp grown for “fiber” is legal if its THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) content does not exceed 0.2% or less. This provision is specified in Council Regulation (EC) No. 1672/2000 of 27 July 2000.

While cannabis is decriminalized in some countries, in the majority of cases, EU member states maintain a rather hostile attitude towards cannabis and especially towards recreational cannabis.

Regarding CBD, until recently there were no restrictions on the subject in EU regulations. However, EU legislation has moved towards some restriction. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), published new guidelines in January 2019 that affect cannabinoid-enriched foods: “If CBD is to be considered a food additive, it will need to be filed as a novel dietary ingredient.

All products containing CBD must now be approved by a national food authority as a “novel food”. These new guidelines are not mandatory, but some EU member states have already amended their CBD laws accordingly.

EU legislation update country by country

Ready for a tour of cannabis/CBD legislation in the EU in 2021?

Germany

The legalization of medical cannabis has been in effect in Germany since March 2017. Thanks to it, patients suffering from serious illnesses can be treated with cannabis-based medicines on prescription. As for CBD-based products, they are also legal, but only if the THC content does not exceed 0.2%. On the other hand, the German federal drug law prohibits recreational cannabis, although it tolerates the possession and consumption of small quantities.

Austria

Austrian law only prohibits psychotropic cannabis. The use of medical cannabis has been permitted since 2008. There are no restrictions on CBD, which is also legal. Authorized CBD products must not exceed the threshold of 0.3% THC. Even better than the majority of other EU members who stagnate at 0.2%.

Belgium

Under laws dating back to 1912, in Belgium anything extracted from the cannabis plant is illegal. Unless prescribed by a doctor, buying/selling or consuming CBD products is illegal. Medical CBD is allowed but only with a prescription. Apart from that, you can be prosecuted for possessing CBD products, even if they do not contain THC. The production, distribution, and sale of medical cannabis remains prohibited.

In 2019, Belgium announced that CBD flowers with less than 0.2% THC content are now considered tobacco products.

Bulgaria

In Bulgaria, CBD products are available over the counter as long as they contain less than 0.2% THC. In fact, it was the first EU country to issue a certificate for the sale of CBD in open markets.

Croatia

In Croatia you can legally import and buy CBD cannabis as long as the THC content does not exceed 0.2%. Also, medical cannabis has been legal since 2015. Patients suffering from pathologies related to AIDS, multiple sclerosis or cancer can be treated in pharmacies with a prescription. Similarly, the cultivation of industrial hemp is authorized. However, it is illegal to smoke cannabis in public places. Possession, even in small quantities, is forbidden.

Cyprus

Cypriot legislation allows the cultivation and marketing of whole plants or parts of plants or seeds of the species Cannabis sativa with a THC concentration not exceeding 0.2%. Producers and/or suppliers of industrial hemp must obtain a license. Convicted cancer patients are allowed to use cannabis oil for their palliative care.

Denmark

Under Danish law, the use of cannabis for medical and scientific purposes is still restricted. Under current law, you must have a prescription from a doctor to consume cannabis in any form. Therefore, CBD in Denmark is currently only available with a doctor’s prescription.

Spain

Spain is one of the most divisive countries in terms of cannabis legislation. Cannabis-based therapeutic treatments remain prohibited, except in Catalonia where Sativex has been authorized since 2013.

While industrial hemp is allowed, only the Cannabis Sativa L variety can legally be produced, sold and consumed. Similarly, only CBD products from industrial hemp are legal. Only, as in the EU, CBD products in Spain must not contain more than 0.2% THC.

In terms of decriminalization, Spain is one of the few countries where the private use of cannabis is legalized. However, the use, purchase, possession, sale and import of cannabis in public is illegal.

The government prohibits therapeutic claims on online purchases of CBD products.

Estonia

Estonia is the only one of the Baltic countries to have legalized medical cannabis. However, cannabinoid-based medication remains highly regulated. Under Estonian law, psychotropic drugs are illegal. CBD, however, escapes the psychotropic class and can be used legally.

Finland

The Finnish law on psychoactive substances is quite restrictive. Thus, although the law allows for therapeutic cannabis, requests for cannabinoid medication are handled on a case-by-case basis. CBD is legal in the sense that it is not listed as a prohibited substance.

France

Is cannabinoid-based medication legal in France? Yes, with Sativex, dronabinol (Marinol) or synthetic THC. But these medications have not been very conclusive. Therefore, a new decree of October 7, 2020 authorizes a new experimentation of therapeutic cannabis in 5 indications.

However, French legislation remains rather hostile to THC. And it has long been rather unclear on the uses of CBD products.

The 0.2% THC level was one of the main points that fueled the legal vagueness around CBD uses. In fact, France authorizes the cultivation of a restrictive list of hemp varieties with a THC level not exceeding 0.2%. Similarly, any extraction of cannabonoids was prohibited. Today, it is by virtue of a 2018 CJEU ruling that the sale of CBD products has been revived. A more precise legal development was expected.

It fell through a decision of the Court of Cassation that legalizes cannabidiol and hemp flowers legally produced in the EU. In this decision of June 23, 2021, the Court of Cassation states that “the prohibition of the marketing of products containing CBD cannot be ordered in the absence of proof that they fall into the category of narcotics.

Greece

Under Greek law, CBD is excluded from drug control. CBD products are allowed if they contain less than 0.2% THC.

Hungary

Hungarian law does not explicitly restrict CBD. According to Hungarian law, cannabis containing less than 0.2% THC is considered hemp. Therefore, CBD is legal in Hungary.

Ireland

Under Irish law, cannabis varieties containing THC up to 0.2% are permitted. Extraction methods such as the use of CO2 or solvents is illegal. Therefore CBD oil is legal if and only if it is obtained by cold pressing.

Italy

In Italy, it has been possible to buy medical cannabis in pharmacies since 2007. As of 2017, the Italian law introduces “provisions favoring the cultivation of industrial hemp . The goal is to re-inscribe the country as a major player in the industrial cultivation of hemp and CBD products. Industrial hemp can be grown if the THC content is 0.5% or less. In 2016, the Italian government legalized the sale and consumption of CBD. In 2018, high CBD light cannabis with less than 0.5% THC was legalized.

Latvia

Latvian cannabis legislation is aligned with EU legislation on industrial hemp. Therefore the country allows the sale of CBD products with THC limited to 0.2%. Cannabinoid medication is not allowed.

Lithuania

Lithuania adheres to the general EU law on hemp. CBD products can be legally purchased in Lithuania as long as they contain less than 0.2% THC. Like Latvia, Lithuania does not allow medical cannabis.

Luxembourg

Under Luxembourg law, cannabis is legal if it contains less than 0.3% THC. CBD in Luxembourg is therefore legal. Similarly, medical cannabis has been legal since 2018.

Malta

In Malta, to use cannabis for therapeutic purposes, a prescription is required. In 2015, Maltese laws placed restrictions on cannabis and CBD. Under Maltese law, cannabinoid extraction from any form of cannabis (marijuana or hemp) remains subject to the Drug Dependence Act of 2018.

Netherlands

One immediately thinks of Amsterdam known for its relaxed policy towards cannabis consumption. But this tolerance of cannabis is only apparent because Indian hemp (with THC) is “really” illegal. However, you do not risk prosecution in the famous dedicated cafes. You can’t consume more than 5 grams of cannabis at a time. Because hemp seeds and CBD are not explicitly covered by Dutch drug legislation, CBD hemp seed oil is legal in the Netherlands.

Poland

According to the laws in Poland, there are no legal restrictions preventing the use of CBD. Hemp cultivation is limited to varieties with less than 0.2% THC. Since June 2017, the therapeutic use of cannabis is allowed with a medical prescription.

Portugal

Portugal is a pioneer in terms of laws supporting cannabis use. Although personal use of cannabis has been legal since 2001, medical cannabis has only been legalized since 2018. The country has great market potential and sales of CBD products are steadily increasing.

Czech Republic

According to Czech law, CBD products must not contain more than 0.3% THC. Below this threshold hemp and CBD products can be purchased and consumed freely in the Czech Republic. The country is one of the few countries that have decriminalized cannabis subject to THC limits.

Romania

Romanian laws do not explicitly prohibit CBD derived from hemp. Buying or consuming CBD products is legal in Romania as long as THC levels are below 0.2%. Medical cannabis, although authorized since 2013, must also respect the 0.2% THC limit. This represents a hindrance to the development of the commercial medical cannabis industry which does not benefit patients. They have to turn to other countries, especially to get Sativex.

Slovakia

Slovakia has no regulations on medical cannabis. CBD is listed as a psychoactive drug. For the time being, Slovak law is clear and states that CBD and its oil are illegal.

Slovenia

According to Slovenian law only the cultivation, possession, processing, sale and distribution of cannabis with a THC content of more than 0.2% is prohibited. Therefore, CBD products with a THC content of less than 0.2% are completely legal. Cultivation legislation requires a low THC content of less than 0.2%. CBD oil is legal in Slovenia for consumption.

Sweden

Swedish drug legislation is one of the most restrictive in Europe. Products containing THC, regardless of the quantity, are classified as narcotics. CBD, on the other hand, is no longer considered a drug but a medicine. Therefore, by law, oral CBD products require a license from the Medicines Agency to be sold. On the medical cannabis side, only Sativex is accepted as a cannabinoid-based medication. However, candidates for this medication must be referred to a doctor who must in turn receive approval from the Medicines Agency.

To conclude

Several EU countries have undertaken a parliamentary reflection to change the legislation on cannabis and especially on medical cannabis. The next few years should be interesting in terms of legal developments around cannabis and especially CBD.…

Anxious man

How can CBD help with anxiety

Anxiety is a feeling and emotion felt by most people, a fact further accentuated by the frantic pace at which our modern societies advance. An increasingly common ailment that can have different degrees of impact on our mental and physical health. It can, for example, cause depression. And when we know that Europeans, and more particularly the French, are among the top-consumer of anti-depressant, CBD comes to impose itself as a miracle solution much healthier. So what are the benefits of cannabidiol against anxiety? How to consume it to effectively fight anxiety? Tutoarduino answers all these questions below.

How to define anxiety?

First of all, it is important to describe a little more precisely how anxiety can manifest itself and impact an individual in his daily life. Anxiety is defined more as a feeling, as an emotion rather than as an illness. It results from an accumulation of conscious and unconscious stress. In more severe cases, it can manifest itself in the form of panic disorder, obsessive disorder, phobia, social disorders, as well as post-traumatic stress from an accident or shocking experience. More pronounced forms can cause breathing problems, aches and pains, dizziness, severe headaches, but also tachycardia or strong heat rises.

It is also interesting to note that anxiety can itself be a symptom of so-called higher illnesses. Anxiety known as secondary anxiety can result from bipolarity, hyperthyroidism, depression itself or even major psychiatric disorders or hypertension. So many symptoms and diseases on which CBD has had promising impacts since science has decided to focus on its virtues.

How can CBD alleviate anxiety

At present, a whole bunch of pharmaceutical drugs are marketed with the aim of alleviating anxiety in people who suffer from it. But their major problem is that these same drugs can have several side effects, but also, and especially, caused an addiction in its consumer. This is where CBD comes in as the safest and healthiest alternative for human beings. Because in addition to effectively fighting anxiety, cannabidiol has proven itself against certain serious skin diseases such as multiple sclerosis, but also on Parkinson’s disease, and even on certain forms of cancer.

Not to be considered as a full-fledged drug, CBD can be an excellent ally against anxiety. Indeed, it acts and dissipates completely in our body thanks to the natural presence of our endocannabinoid system, and thus on the CB1 and CB2 receptors. A process that generates the creation of serotonin and its influx into our brain. This hormone acts directly on the mood and on the feeling of well-being and happiness. A proven result, since proven by several international studies in recent years.

Benefits that have boosted its image among new consumers of legal cannabis. Because unlike its cousin THC, cannabidiol has no psychotropic effect. This could accentuate certain ailments such as personality disorders, bipolarity by promoting hallucinations and paranoia for example. But even if the CBD does not represent any danger for the health, it is important to dose its doses so that it acts in the most optimal way.

What dosage to choose ?

First of all, it is important to know that CBD will have a different degree of effects in each person, as they do not all react in the same way. For that, it is important to find the mode of consumption which pleases you the most. The cannabidiol in herbal tea remains surely the most adequate to the good and complete dissipation of the benefits of our magic molecule in our body. The e-liquids and the flowers consumed under specialized vaporizer are also an excellent way to take advantage of the CBD, even if the time of the effects will be less than those caused by the consumption of an herbal tea. CBD oils as well as massage balms are also a good way to benefit from the virtues of cannabidiol, especially when it comes to local applications. CBD honey can also be just as effective as infusions, since it spreads directly into the bloodstream, and therefore, impacting in a beneficial way the whole of our organs.

In short, it is important to find the right dose and the most pleasant way to enjoy CBD, it will take care of the rest. We advise you to consult your doctor beforehand to discuss the subject with him. An expert eye will surely help you make a more informed and serene choice.…

sleeping disorders

Smoking a cannabis joint to fall asleep might not be a very good idea

A recent study conducted over more than a decade has delivered a novel conclusion. Indeed, it established a link between cannabis use and sleep disorders. Smoking cannabis would cause more difficulties to fall asleep, to stay asleep and would make smokers sleep too much.

Does cannabis impacts the quality of sleep?

Smoking cannabis in the evening to sleep better is a habit that concerns many people around the world. According to the followers, this plant would help to relax and would allow to sleep well. However, a study published on December 6, 2021 in the BMJ Journals states that this is just a preconceived idea. The study was conducted by the University of Toronto (Canada), in collaboration with various health organizations in the United States.

The researchers tried to understand the possible relationship between the use of cannabis on the moment and the duration of sleep by integrating no less than 21,729 volunteers between 2005 and 2018. They took into account many factors such as ethnicity, level of education, age, number of hours worked per week and other health-related criteria. Of course, the researchers also included information on sleep quality and cannabis use.

The study placed participants in three categories based on the length of their night’s sleep. The first category was for short nights (less than six hours), the second for “optimal” nights and the last for long nights (nine hours or more).

Smokers with sleep problems

The scientists asked the volunteers about their possible difficulties in finding sleep or staying asleep. They were also asked to find out more about sleeping for too long. Next, the participants were again divided into two groups: cannabis smokers who had used in the past month and those who had not. The 3,132 smokers in the sample included moderate smokers (less than 20 joints per month) and heavy smokers (more than 20 joints per month).

According to the results, 34% of moderate and heavy cannabis users reported sleeping less than six hours per night and 56% more than nine hours. In general, they reported having more problems falling asleep or staying asleep. Others also confirmed that they slept too long.

According to the researchers, heavy cannabis users are more exposed to both extremes of sleep duration. The study results are believed to be related to an unknown consequence of repeated exposure to cannabis. It may also be a reflection of underlying sociodemographic or health factors. The scientists believe that it is possible that as the body becomes accustomed to cannabis, it becomes more susceptible to sleep disturbances.…

Argentina legalizes self-cultivation of medical cannabis

Argentina legalizes self-cultivation of medical cannabis

Personal and network cultivation is allowed for Argentine researchers and patients who register with the National Cannabis Program.

The Argentine government has legalized the self-cultivation of cannabis for therapeutic use as well as the sale of medicinal oils and creams in pharmacies, according to a decree published Wednesday, November 11, 2020 in the Official Gazette. This is a revision of the law passed in March 2017 allowing the medicinal use of cannabis oils but maintained the prohibition of self-cultivation and possession of seeds in individual or collective form.

Sale of oils and creams produced from cannabis allowed in pharmacies

The decree, signed by President Alberto Fernandez, aims to allow “access and protection (…) to those who need to use cannabis as a therapeutic tool”, says the text. Thus, personal and network cultivation is allowed for researchers and patients who register with the National Cannabis Program, which had been created by law but was not operational. The sale of oils and creams produced from cannabis is also authorized in pharmacies.

Patients and families of children with serious pathologies who produced their own oil to improve their quality of life demanded to get out of the illegality. “Today, we cry with joy because we started this fight for our children (…). We are one big family fighting for the same right, the right to quality of life. We are going to cultivate our medicines without fear” (…) We are not criminals”, the collective “Mama Cultiva” said on social networks.

Alleviate the effects of Parkinson’s disease

Cannabis oil is administered to treat epilepsy as well as for the palliative treatment of pain in people with cancer, fibromyalgia or to mitigate the effects of Parkinson’s disease. The Argentine state also intends to embark on the public production of medical cannabis to ensure access to patients who lack medical coverage. In 2013, Uruguay became the first country in the world to pass a law allowing the cultivation of medical and recreational marijuana, the formation of growers’ clubs and the supervised purchase of marijuana in pharmacies.…

swiss legalisation cannabis

Cannabis: Switzerland prepares for legalization

After the National, the State Public Health Commission has largely agreed to regulate the cannabis market.

The way is clear: parliamentarians can now prepare the law that will “lift the prohibition of cannabis and completely revise the regulations on its cultivation, production, trade and consumption”. The Committee on Public Health of the Council of States voted 9 to 2 in favor of the parliamentary initiative to regulate the market, a few months after a (closer) vote of the same committee of the National.

Put an end to the black market

The committee of the States wants to treat the problem in its entirety. “It will be necessary to ensure that the black market is contained and that only cannabis whose quality has been controlled is available,” it said in its statement issued Tuesday afternoon.

The initiative accepted by the commissions speaks indeed “to introduce a tax and regulate advertising, to dry up the black market by removing the prohibition and to supervise the production for personal use”. The protection of minors must be considered a priority, the text says.

From now on, the National Health Commission will have to work on writing the law, which will then be submitted to both chambers in plenary. Given the votes of the elected representatives of the commissions and the positions of the different parties, the proposal has the potential to be accepted.

Times are changing

First to react, the Young Socialists “welcome the clear decision of the commission and hope that the chambers will quickly deal with this object”. The Swiss Greens had also called for acceptance of the solution in the previous vote. The FDP is somewhat divided, but some sections are advocating the decriminalization of all drugs.

The Centre and the SVP have been rather sceptical in the past, but it should be noted that the parliamentary initiative was tabled by Heinz Siegenthaler from Bern, who sits for the PBD, i.e. in the parliamentary group of the Centre, and that he is a former member of the SVP.…

strong cannabidiol

What is the strongest CBD available?

For thousands of years, cannabis has been known by many cultures. To this day, it remains the hot topic of discussion, and it is common to confuse cannabis and cannabidiol (CBD), which are two different substances in terms of their health effects.

CBD is beneficial to health and its use is constantly growing in the medical field, as it is mainly used to calm pain and intervenes in other disorders. It is now legalized in some countries because of these therapeutic effects.

In this article, we offer you the selection of the variety richest in CBD and its importance on the body.

The strongest cannabidiol

There are several varieties of CBD offered by brands. Generally, medical cannabis consumers are looking for weed that is present in high amounts of CBD. However, choosing to find the strongest strain is a bit difficult.

Candida (CD-1)

Candida (CD-1) is genetically made up of Indica and Sativa, presents a cross between the two varieties AC DC and Harlequin. This variety contains the highest content of CBD and the lowest content of THC, moreover it does not produce psychoactive effect.

In fact, this variety is favored by people who wish to obtain medical benefits, because its level of THC is less than 1% which means, that it does not give any considerable psychoactive effect, contrary to what you can find in other varieties of cannabis the rate of THC is very abundant and produces thus, a high effect.

The medical potential of this strain is enormous, because its concentration, very high in CBD which goes from 11 to 20 %, allows him to treat a great number of disorders such as the anxiety, the insomnia, the epileptic seizures, the disease of Alzheimer. Candida (CD-1) is considered a true medical relief, while having little or no psychoactive effect.

The effects of the strongest CBD on the body

In order to project the importance of the strongest CBD, you must first know its benefits on the human body:

  • Reduces inflammation and calms pain.
  • Relieves epileptic seizures.
  • Helps fight depression.
  • Reduces stress and anxiety, as it has a relaxing effect.
  • Helps to reduce the side effects of cancer drugs.
  • Beneficial on mental disorders.

The functioning of CBD is based on its interaction with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), it has two receptors:

  • CB1: present in the brain and central nervous system.
  • CB2: present generally in the whole body.

For the mode of action, CBD influences indirectly on the receptors which gives, thereafter, a soft response which will be treated by the ECS, moreover it acts on the receptor (5-HT1A) to secrete serotonin and melatonin, which enters the regulation of the mood and the sleep. The medical use of CBD requires high intensity, but the choice of the latter is based on your needs.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid found in cannabis that refers to a plant named hemp, and in botanical language called Cannabis Sativa. It is essentially, a very complicated plant to demonstrate with respect to these little known constituents. Nevertheless, CBD is the major constituent of the cannabinoid.

CBD is the prevention of cannabidiol, according to an etymological study, this name is composed of two independent parts and each of them gives information on the meaning of CBD :

  • Cannabi: comes from cannabis which means a plant from which the molecule is derived.
  • Diol: refers to a chemical substance displayed under the name of glycol.
  • CBD: the composition of the chemical substance present in the molecule, also including oxygen and hydrogen.

In its natural state, this molecule is very abundant in cannabis, once the molecule is extracted from the plant, its name will change to cannabidiol, moreover thanks to this extraction the molecule can be presented as an essential oil. Finally, CBD has become very popular for its adaptation in electronic cigarettes, but also for its benefits in therapeutic use.…

when to consume CBD

Is there an ideal time to consume CBD?

You want to consume cannabidiol “CBD” and you want to know how and especially when to take it?

You will first have to choose which product you want to consume CBD with, as there are several. It is possible to vaporize CBD with an e-cigarette or to inhale it in a traditional way, the legal cannabis with a high content of CBD and almost 0% of THC is legal to sell.

There is also CBD oil, which is used for several reasons including weight loss, and cannabidiol can also be found in lozenges or candy.

In this article, we will tell you when to take CBD for each of the cases mentioned above.

Knowing when to take CBD depends on how you use it

As we said, CBD can be present in e-liquid, and in this case, it is used for vaping. Otherwise, you may want to consume it in lozenges or in oil form. The body will consume cannabidiol in different ways, depending on how it is administered and the medium that is used. The duration of the effect of CBD is also influenced by this.

When to smoke CBD or vaporize it?

In order to have very fast effects of cannabidiol on your body, inhaling it or vaping it with an e-cigarette will provide you with this speed, because the CBD will go directly through the lungs, and more precisely the alveoli of the lungs which will accelerate its arrival to the blood.

If you have pains or crises, this method is preferred for its very fast and effective effects, otherwise, for long-lasting effects, prefer CBD oils or capsules.

When to consume CBD edibles like candies or capsules?

Cannabidiol capsules or lozenges are convenient to have on you at all times, and there is nothing to prepare, it’s like medicine that you have, if you feel like consuming it, just open the box and take it. The good thing is that there is a precise dosage in mg and when we know our habits and how much CBD we want, this dosage is perfect to suit everyone’s needs.

Nevertheless, the effects of this alternative, unlike vaping or smoking, are longer, and go from one hour to several hours (about 6h) because they pass through the stomach and must be digested.

When you are looking for quick relief from pain, this is not the best option.

It is however, advised to take these lozenges or capsules during your meals for a better assimilation of CBD by your body.

When to take cannabidiol oil?

All over the world, this alternative is the preferred one, composed of a vegetable oil which reinforces the assimilation of CBD as well as a little hemp which is very rich in CBD. A few drops on the tongue, the mucous membranes assimilate the cannabidiol oil very well and it diffuses quickly in the body. In addition to the speed of assimilation, it is the safest and most convenient way to take advantage of the benefits of CBD that make it :

  • A pain reliever.
  • An anti-inflammatory.
  • An anxiolytic.
  • An anti-epileptic.

CBD, an ally in the management of lung cancer?

As more and more physical and online stores offer cannabidiol (or CBD) for sale in recent months, research continues to determine whether this naturally occurring compound in cannabis has therapeutic benefits.

In addition to its relaxing and sleep-enhancing effects, studies have found that CBD may be effective against lung damage caused by Covid-19 infection or delay the formation of beta-amyloid plaques, which cause Alzheimer’s disease.

In an article published in BMJ Case Reports, researchers suggest that CBD oil could be used as a potential treatment for lung disease.

A 76% decrease in tumor diameter

The cannabinoids found in CBD oil can interact with signaling pathways in cells, including cancer cells. Although other studies have shown conflicting results about their effectiveness as a primary treatment for cancer, this new work is encouraging.

It results from the follow-up of an 80-year-old patient diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer. She also suffered from mild chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), osteoarthritis and high blood pressure. She was a smoker and consumed more than a pack of cigarettes per week (68 packs per year).

At the time of diagnosis, the patient’s lung tumor measured 41 mm and could be treated conventionally with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. But the woman refused treatment. So she was placed under surveillance, with regular CT scans every 3 to 6 months.

The scans showed that the tumor was gradually shrinking, from 41 mm in June 2018 to 10 mm in February 2021, an overall reduction of 76 percent of the maximum diameter.

When contacted in 2019 to discuss her progress, the woman revealed that she had been taking CBD oil as an alternative self-treatment for her lung cancer since August 2018, shortly after her initial diagnosis: 0.5 ml of oil, usually three times a day, but sometimes two.

Other than loss of appetite, no other side effects have been reported. The patient also made no changes to her prescribed medications, diet or lifestyle. And she continued to smoke throughout.

More research needed

The researchers caution that this article is not a clinical trial. It is only a case report, with only one other similar case reported. They explain that they don’t yet know exactly what ingredients in CBD oil may have been effective in decreasing the size of the tumor. “Although there appears to be a relationship between CBD oil intake and the observed tumor regression, we are not able to conclusively confirm that the tumor regression was due to the patient’s intake of CBD oil.”

“Further research is needed to identify the actual mechanism of action, routes of administration, safe dosages, its effects on different types of cancer, and any potential adverse side effects when using cannabinoids,” they conclude.…
