The health benefits that come from cannabidiol (CBD) oil aren’t exactly news, but with so many misconceptions filling the web, it’s expected that many people still have questions: What is CBD? How does it work? Will CBD get me high? Is it legal? How does differ from THC? And where can I get my hands on CBD?
If you have questions, you’ve come to the right place! The experts from Gorilla Vapes are here to answer all your questions (and more)! Read through some of the common questions below and don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly if you need more information.
What is CBD? And Will it Get Me High?
Many people don’t realize that there are over 80 active cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, some of which are very beneficial to health. CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the most prevalent. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is also found in the cannabis plant, CBD is not psychoactive (it won’t get you “high”) and can actually counteract the psychoactive high from THC.
Is CBD Legal?
Unlike medical marijuana, the CBD that is derived from hemp is legal in all 50 states. Since it is made from industrial hemp plants, the FDA considers hemp oil (and CBD from hemp oil) to be a dietary supplement (rather than a medication).
If you live in the United States, this means you do not need a prescription to purchase CBD. And at Gorilla Vapes, our CBD comes from hemp plants, not marijuana, which makes it legal for us to sell.
How is Cannabis Oil Different from Hemp Oil?
Although the hemp and marijuana plant are of the same species, they have some significant differences. On a molecular level, CBD from hemp is the same as CBD from marijuana; both of these plants contain the chemical compounds THC and CBD. Although concentrations will depend on the type of hemp product or marijuana strain used, the average hemp oil contains less than 0.3% THC and 18-27% CBD. The average marijuana oil contains 50-60% TCH and 10-15% CBD.
Because hemp oil products with CBD are legal in all 50 states, they open the doors for those who aren’t able to access medical marijuana where they live. CBD from hemp is also an alternative option for those who want to use CBD but also want to avoid the negative side effects of psychoactive THC.
How is CBD Different from THC?
Marijuana, a variety of the plant cannabis sativa, contains large quantities of THC, the chemical responsible for that “high” feeling. Binding to receptors in the brain, THC can help with many ailments including nausea, migraines, chronic pain and arthritis.
Hemp, another variety of the plant cannabis sativa, contains large quantities of CBD. Binding to receptors in the body (instead of the brain), CBD can help with inflammation and pain.
What Does CBD Help With?
CBD provides some pretty significant medical benefits. It can be used as a treatment option for epilepsy and has also been used to ease anxiety and aid those who have trouble sleeping. CBD can help relieve muscular and joint pain, reduce seizures and treat the effects of Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis. In fact, recently it was reported that almost half of all CBD users have stopped using modern medicine.
Where Can I Find CBD?
You can conveniently order CBD from the comfort of your own home or pick it up at your local Gorilla Vapes shop. It’s available in oil, infused water, gummies, infused vape juice, and medicated topicals.
