In this post we will answer the most asked CBD questions in 2020.
What is CBD?
CBD is a cannabinoid found within the cannabis plant. It has many medicinal properties that can be used for various conditions. CBD
For valid reasons, cannabidiol dominates the conversation about the medical use of cannabis. All of the 60-plus cannabinoids unique to the plant genus cannabis interact with our bodies thanks to a network of neurons called the endocannabinoid system.
The endocannabinoid system runs throughout your body and it is full of receptors that bind to the cannabinoids you introduce to your bloodstream when you consume CBD. It’s the chemical interactions of those bonds that create a wide and largely unknown series of responses in your body.
And even though cannabidiol has no toxicity for humans, meaning it doesn’t make you intoxicated (i.e. high) it is highly reactive with the endocannabinoid system. To put things simply, CBD makes things happen in your body. When it binds to the endocannabinoid system’s receptors, it stimulates all kinds of changes. Most of those changes are incredibly beneficial, and researchers keep discovering real and potential medical uses for them.
Does CBD get you high?
No. One of the most crucially important qualities of CBD is its lack of psycho-activity. This basically means that cannabidiol won’t get you high.
Unlike THC, the cannabinoid with the power of producing euphoric sensations, Cannabidiol is dormant. So when taken on its own, users experience none of the sensations of being ‘stoned’. And this is the single most important property of the cannabinoid from the medical and legal perspective.
How much CBD should I use?

What is CBD Isolate?
In scientific terms, an isolate is the purest form of a compound, which is produced by singularly extracting that compound from its environment and isolating it from all other compounds.

CBD Isolate is typically extracted from Hemp, due to its low to non-existent THC-content.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is extracted from the varieties of cannabis plants that have CBD occurring naturally in large amounts and THC in low amounts. To ensure a high concentration of CBD in the oil, a specialized process is used to extract the compound. The oil contains other compounds like terpenes, omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, chlorophyll, vitamins, and phytocannabinoids like cannabigerol, cannabichromene, cannabidivarin, and cannabinol.
What is a CBD Topical?
Simply put, they are topicals that have been infused with CBD. Topical administration most often means application to body surfaces such as the skin or mucous membranes to treat ailments via a large range of classes including creams, foams, gels, lotions and ointments. Many Topical medications are epicutaneous, meaning that they are applied directly to the skin. Topicals are the best choice for those looking to treat localised pain.
