Why CBD Doesn’t Work

Almost everyday, we hear from people who have had frustrating experiences with CBD. Maybe you’ve had similar experiences, especially if you:

  • Took CBD as an oil, gummy, or other edible
  • Tried a generic CBD formula
  • Quickly stopped using CBD after not seeing fast results
  • Chose a cheap, low-quality CBD brand

If that sounds familiar to your experience, you’re in luck! These are common pitfalls that CBD customers often fall into, but there are ways to avoid these issues entirely. Below, we’ll discuss these issues (and more) in detail, why they prevent a fully satisfying CBD experience, and what you can do to make sure you get the full benefits that CBD has to offer.

Problem #1: Using CBD Products with Low Bioavailability 

The biggest problem customers face when trying to use CBD products is the lack of bioavailability. In short, bioavailability refers to how easily medicine or other substances  (including CBD) can be absorbed into your body. If you’re using a CBD product with low bioavailability, then you may not have had enough CBD absorbed into your body to feel the active effects.

Factors that Affect Bioavailability

Not sure what impacts CBD’s bioavailability? There are several factors that can increase, or decrease, CBD’s ability to absorb into your bloodstream:

  • Method of Use: Patches or inhaled forms of CBD usually have higher levels of bioavailability because in this delivery method, the CBD avoids the digestive system. Ingestible forms of CBD, like oils or capsules, usually have low levels of bioavailability, since your digestive system destroys most of the CBD.
  • Product Purity: If your CBD product has ingredient fillers or contaminants, you’re not going to get the levels of absorption you would with pure CBD products.
  • Product Design: Certain CBD products may be specifically designed from the beginning to increase bioavailability (like PhenoLife). This is especially important for ingestible forms of CBD, since it has to survive harsh stomach acids. 

Problem #2: Using the Wrong CBD Formula

Another common issue we see customers face is getting the wrong kind of CBD formula. If you don’t get a CBD formula that’s a good match for your health challenge, then you may not get the results you were hoping for. Let’s take a look at the different kinds of CBD formulas that you’ll commonly see on the market.

Broad-Spectrum CBD

Broad-spectrum CBD is the same as full-spectrum CBD, except the trace amounts of THC have been removed. This may allow customers to still benefit from the entourage effect from other cannabinoids and present in the products while avoiding THC.

CBD-Isolate

Products made with CBD-isolate will contain only CBD. None of the other cannabinoids or terpenes present in the sourced will be present. This means customers won’t be able to benefit from the entourage effect, and customers will generally pay a premium price, since isolating CBD requires extensive processing.

Catered Formulas

Many CBD brands create CBD formulas that include other active ingredients to help target specific health challenges. Choosing a CBD product that’s targeted to help anxiety when you’re looking to manage chronic pain might not give you the results you were hoping for. 

If you are trying to hone in on a targeted health challenge, a catered, full-spectrum CBD formula is the best choice for maximum results.

Problem #3: Inconsistent or Improper CBD Dosing

This is one of the most common problems we see with customers that say that they felt some effects from CBD but never got the results they were looking for. It’s a confusing issue because most customers will feel CBD the very first time they take it, but they won’t get the best results on the first dose

To start, your first dose is not likely to be the amount of CBD you take forever. Regardless of what CBD product you use, we usually recommend our customers start with low doses and slowly work their way up as they understand how a specific product will make them feel. Starting with a huge CBD dose can cause uncomfortable side-effects.

CBD Needs Consistent Dosing To Work

Not only do you need to work up to your ideal dose of CBD, but you need to regularly take it to begin to feel the best effects. Usually, this takes up around 10 days of daily CBD dosing of any product you choose. We’ve noticed many customers take CBD for just a few days and quit without giving the CBD enough time to fully saturate the body. 

Give yourself time to find the ideal dose and then consistently take that dose for the best effects.

Problem #4: Choosing the Wrong Delivery System

As we mentioned in the previous point, different forms of CBD offer different advantages for customers. Certain delivery methods of CBD are better for helping to manage certain health challenges, and a delivery mismatch can make it feel like CBD isn’t offering the benefits it’s supposed to. Here’s a quick overview of the primary kinds of CBD and what to expect during use:

Inhalable Forms of CBD

Forms of CBD that you can inhale will enter your bloodstream the fastest, and since it bypasses your digestive system, the bioavailability of inhaled CBD is generally high (around 30%). This form of CBD is great for sudden, unexpected problems, like acute pain or a attack, but the effects don’t last very long compared to ingestible forms of CBD or transdermal patches.

Transdermal CBD Patches

Transdermal CBD patches allow for consistent CBD dosing for up to 8 hours, and with bioavailability levels at 80%, they are perfect for consistent, long-term dosing. However, it can take a while for the CBD to absorb through your skin and reach your bloodstream, which makes patches a poor choice for sudden, unexpected issues. 

Also, transdermal patches are not the same as topical CBD lotions. Topical lotions may provide some local directly where applied, but they are not designed to deliver CBD into the bloodstream. That means using lotions to help with widespread pain or anxiety will never provide the results you want.

Ingestible Forms of CBD

Finally, ingestible forms of CBD, while popular, have notoriously low bioavailability levels. Most ingestible forms only have 6% bioavailability, which means products like oils, tinctures, or capsules need extra , consistent doses to be effective. Ingestible CBD tends to have longer effects than inhalable forms of CBD and will usually take effect faster than transdermal patches.

Problem #5: Fraudulent CBD Products

In the UK, the CBD isn’t regulated by a formal government body. That means it’s up to CBD brands to police themselves to provide pure, high-grade products. Some less reputable brands will add fillers to their CBD products (and not disclose it), or they may be lying about how much CBD is in their products. 

This is a common issue. A performed by the National Institute of Health showed that, from their sampling of CBD products, 26% contained less CBD than advertised, while 43% contained more CBD than advertised. This same study also showed that 21% of these products also contained THC levels above the legal limit, which was “enough to intoxicate children.”

Your CBD product may not have worked because it didn’t have the amount of CBD as advertised.

How PhenoLife Makes CBD That

If you think that you’re ready to give CBD another try, then take a look at how PhenoLife resolves these common problems with CBD

PhenoLife Products Offer Superior Bioavailability

We have crafted our products specifically to increase bioavailability. First, our products like the and the PhenoPatch have naturally high rates of absorption. Next, our PhenoGel capsules use advanced microencapsulation technology to offer superior bioavailability to traditional CBD ingestible products. 

PhenoGel capsules are made with a protective coating that prevents CBD from being destroyed by your stomach acid (and that protective coating is dissolved from a specific enzyme released from the pancreas). Then, the microbead technology releases our CBD formula in a controlled dose, which gives your body a chance to absorb more CBD (while also helping the effects last longer).

PhenoLife Uses Full-Spectrum, Targeted Formulas For Superior Results

PhenoLife uses full-spectrum CBD in all of our products, since we want our products to provide the best results possible. We’ve also created targeted formulas for the three most common health challenges that CBD has the potential to help manage: 

  • Body for managing pain 
  • Mind for soothing anxiety 
  • Sleep for encouraging a full night of sleep

All three of our formulas are available with PhenoPen, PhenoGel, and PhenoPatch.

PhenoLife Offers the Best CBD Delivery Systems

PhenoLife has developed three primary methods of CBD, each that have their own pros and cons of use:

PhenoPen

PhenoPen creates a vapor that is inhaled by users, which quickly delivers CBD into the bloodstream. This form of CBD is ideal for fast-acting relief for acute, onset challenges (like unexpected pain or an anxiety attack). However, the effects are short-lived, which may present an issue for customers looking for a longer-lasting option (like for help sleeping).

PhenoPatch

PhenoPatch is a transdermal patch that is applied directly onto your skin to deliver a slow, controlled dose of CBD. The patch lasts up to 8 hours, which makes it a great choice for customers wanting to use CBD to help get a good night’s rest, or for customers that want an all-day CBD solution. 

However, it can take 45 minutes to an hour for customers to feel the effects of the PhenoPatch, which makes it a less optimal choice for trying to manage acute pain or a bout of unexpected stress.

PhenoGel

PhenoGel is a slow-release gel capsule specifically designed to enhance CBD absorption. The effects of the capsules take longer than the PhenoPen, but the effects will last longer than inhaling vapor. PhenoGel capsules will begin to take effect faster than the PhenoPatch, but the effects last a few hours less than the patches. 

PhenoGel shines as a convenient way to take CBD regardless of where you are. If you want a discrete, easy way to take CBD (without having to manage a patch), then PhenoGel may be your ideal choice.

Combined Solutions

We encourage customers to combine PhenoLife products if there doesn’t seem to be a single product that meets their needs. This is a common practice for customers who struggle to fall asleep and stay asleep, who want to manage chronic pain consistently but also experience acute pain spikes, or who want to keep general anxiety low while also being prone to panic attacks.

PhenoLife Takes CBD Seriously

We want our customers to trust us, but we understand that trust has to be earned. That’s why we perform third-party lab testing on all of our products, which demonstrates:

  • The amount of CBD labeled on products is accurate
  • The amount of other labeled cannabinoids is accurate
  • The lack of contamination from heavy metals

We also work to educate customers on the best way to take CBD, including ideal initial doses, how to step up to more potent doses, and techniques to follow if the desired results aren’t being experienced.

Contact Us to Learn More

PhenoLife loves helping customers learn the most effective ways to use CBD. If you have more questions about what stops CBD from working, feel free to reach out to us with questions. If you’re ready to give CBD another try, and want to start with PhenoLife, then take a look at our online store to see what we offer.

How CBD Lab Testing Works & Why It’s Important

When customers start shopping for ideal CBD products, they’re often overwhelmed by the enormous amount of products and brands to choose from. While we encourage customers to find CBD products that fit their lifestyle, there is one quality that never be compromised on: third party lab tests. 

Independent, 3rd party tests are the first thing you should look for in any CBD product.

Let’s discuss how testing works for CBD products, and why it’s so to make sure any CBD product you buy has been tested.

How Works: The Process

The process of testing CBD is simple. A brand will send a sample to an independent, 3rd party lab, and that lab will run a test to see all the compounds or impurities that might be in the product. For CBD products, a lab result will show:

  • All cannabinoids and terpenes naturally present in the sourced hemp
  • Any impurities present, like heavy metals or pesticides

Most brands have lab available on their website for easy viewing, while others will have information on where to see lab results on their product packaging. Often, brands may incorporate both to make sure that customers have easy access to lab reports.

What is 3rd Party Testing

Third party testing means that the lab that is testing the CBD products is not affiliated with the brand or the CBD industry in any way. The separation of the lab from the entire CBD industry helps remove any potential conflict of interests, and customers can fully trust the results from the lab.

The Importance of Testing

Third party testing is crucially important to making sure your CBD product is pure and safe. Most countries (including the USA and the UK), don’t regulate the CBD industry, which means there’s no legal consequence for a brand to lie about how pure their product is. 

If your CBD product isn’t pure, you’ll run into issues with trying to get the best results. If there’s simply less CBD in the product than claimed, you’ll run into issues with absorption and the you’re looking for. If there’s heavy metals or pesticides present, the product could be a danger to your health, and could even exacerbate the health issues you’re trying to manage.

What Companies Test & Why

  • To confirm purity: This is the primary reason for third party testing. It confirms that there is only hemp-derived materials in the product (or the only ingredients present are the ones advertised). It also confirms the concentration of CBD, which can be helpful for dosing. 
  • To avoid heavy metals and pesticides: The presence of heavy metals and pesticides can be harmful, and it also indicates a fundamental problem in the manufacturing process. 

Lab Testing: What to Look For

There are a lot of different kinds of third party tests a brand may conduct. Depending on what you want to avoid (or what you want to make sure you have), you may want to make sure that a specific brand conducts a specific kind of test:

Chromatography (or LC)

Liquid chromatography (or high-performance liquid chromatography, shortened to LC or HPLC respectively), is the test that is conducted to show what kinds of cannabinoids are present in a CBD product and what concentrations they have. 

This test is important if you are trying to use certain kinds of cannabinoids (for example, if a brand claims to have an added concentration of a minor cannabinoid, LC will prove that the cannabinoid is present at those higher concentrations). LC will also show which cannabinoids are lacking (which is important if you are buying CBD isolate, which only contains CBD).

Polymerase Chain Reactions (PCR)

Polymerase chain reactions (or PCR) tests are used to make sure there isn’t contamination of bacteria, fungus, or other foreign biological substance. This test won’t tell you anything about what kinds of cannabinoids are present, but it will help to ensure there aren’t any harmful biological contaminants that you should avoid. 

For CBD products, the PCR test makes sure that the hemp was harvested and stored safely (mold can be a significant issue with harvested ).

Mass Spectrometry (MS)

Finally, mass spectrometry, or MS, testing is used to confirm that there are no heavy metals present in your CBD product. Poor manufacturing standards are what most commonly cause heavy metal contamination, and heavy metal poisoning can cause severe health issues. 

Some brands may use MS testing to determine what cannabinoids are present, similar to LC. This is another common use for MS testing, though both LC and MS testing will provide the most accurate cannabinoid profiles.

Who Doesn’t Do it & Why

Since testing is so important, it may be confusing why a brand would skip the testing process. 

  • Testing costs money and is optional: Since the market is unregulated, brands don’t have to test their products. So, if one is interested in trying to make as much money as possible instead of providing a consistently pure, high-quality product, they may skip the testing phase. 
  • New to market: A brand may be brand-new to the market and not yet able to get tests back on their products. This could be an innocent mistake (maybe the brand is still learning how to best safeguard the purity of their product). Regardless, this is not a good reason to skip lab testing.
  • Communication : It’s very possible that a brand does conduct third party testing, but they don’t offer the lab results on their site. This is a frequent occurrence, especially for brands that may not rely heavily on online sales. If you come across a brand that looks great, but you can’t find the lab tests, ask! Almost any brand will provide lab results when requested (if they are getting lab tests to begin with).

If you come across a brand that seems suspiciously inexpensive, check to see if they offer third-party lab results. If they don’t, that’s likely why they can offer such cheap prices, and you should choose a more trustworthy brand.

PhenoLife: Third Party Tested with Certificate of Analysis

Our primary focus is to make sure that PhenoLife products are pure, safe, and easy to absorb. That means we take third party testing seriously, and we have performed it on all of our products since our inception. 

Customers can look at our certificate of analysis (or COA) which shows the results of third party lab reports we request. You’ll be able to see:

  • The full cannabinoid profile of our products
  • The concentrations of each cannabinoid present
  • Results showing no biological contamination 
  • Results showing no heavy metal contamination

If you have questions about our COA, the kinds of lab tests we request, or anything regarding the purity of our products, please ask! We’ll make sure that you can confidently buy knowing that PhenoLife is provably pure and safe.

Trick or Treat: The CBD facts (or myths) explained.

In the spirit of Halloween, the experts at PhenoLife want to dive into the tricks or treats of using . The following six statements will either be a treat about CBD (something that is true) or a trick (something that is not true about CBD).

TRICK or TREAT: CBD Gets You High

There can be a lot of confusion about how CBD affects you. After all, it comes from (which is famous for getting people high), and many customers are concerned that using CBD will get them unexpectedly or uncomfortably high. 

So, is this a trick or a treat?

CBD Gets Your High: Trick

This is a trick. While CBD is found in cannabis, it is not intoxicating. The compound responsible for the traditional high associated with cannabis is , which is a restricted substance in most countries. However, CBD is unrestricted in most countries, largely in part to the fact that it doesn’t make you high. 

However, just because CBD doesn’t get you high doesn’t mean you won’t feel it. CBD can make you sleep and can affect your mood, and there’s a small percentage of people who won’t tolerate the of CBD well. However, the vast majority of customers that use CBD will avoid some of the uncomfortable side-effects, especially if they start with low, comfortable doses.

TRICK or TREAT: All CBD Products is the Same

The market is full of CBD choices, and while there’s a difference in how you can take CBD, there’s not a difference in the CBD itself, right?

All CBD is the Same: Trick

This is a huge trick. There are enormous differences between CBD products (aside from products being oils, capsules, etc.). First, the kind of CBD used can be . Customers are often surprised (and a bit confused), when they discover that there are three kinds of CBD:

  • Full-spectrum CBD: This is the least processed form of CBD. It contains all of the naturally occurring cannabinoids and found in hemp, which may help the CBD product be more effective. PhenoLife products use full-spectrum CBD in all of their products. 
  • Broad-spectrum CBD: This form of CBD is slightly more processed. It still contains many of the natural cannabinoids and terpenes found in hemp, with the noticeable lack of THC. Some customers may want to avoid THC, even legal, trace amounts, but also take advantage of the other natural cannabinoids and terpenes present in the hemp.
  • CBD isolate: This is the most processed form of CBD. It contains only CBD (so no other cannabinoids or terpenes).This form of CBD is usually the most expensive, since it requires far more effort to make sure that only CBD is present. 

In addition to the different kinds of CBD, there’s a difference between the same kinds of CBD. Most countries don’t regulate the CBD industry at all, which means companies can lie about what kind of CBD is in their product, how much CBD is in their product, and whether or not there’s something else in their product besides CBD.

This is why you should always make sure that any CBD products you buy are tested by a third-party lab, and that you have access to those results. Third-party testing is a common practice by high-end CBD brands, and it’s the only way you can know for sure what is and is not in your CBD product.

TRICK or TREAT: CBD Helps with Anxiety

Anxiety can be difficult to manage for many people. Some may have trouble getting access to healthcare to get prescriptions, while others may struggle to handle the side-effects of anti-anxiety medications like Zoloft or Prozac. Even medications for acute anxiety, like Xanax, are hard to use while you need to go about your normal day. 

So, can CBD help with anxiety?

CBD Helps with Anxiety: Treat

Treat! While the research into CBD is still pretty early, the research that we have strongly suggests that CBD can help to manage all kinds of anxiety . A 2015 study suggests that CBD may be able to treat a wide range of anxiety disorders without harmful side-effects. 

Another 2019 showed that 79% of participants reported lower anxiety in the first month of using CBD, and those positive results continued to be reported the months that the study was conducted. If you have anxiety problems, and you want to stop taking traditional anti-anxiety medications (or you can’t take them or don’t have access to them) CBD could be an option.

TRICK or TREAT: CBD Helps When You’ve Gotten Too High

If you have legal access to THC products, you may have experienced a situation when you’ve gotten “too high.” While this won’t create a medical emergency, it can still be an uncomfortable experience that lasts for hours. 

There’s several purported home remedies (like sucking on a lemon or chewing peppercorns), but several people have begun to say that CBD might be able to help, too. So, can CBD help when you’ve gotten too high?

CBD Helps When You’ve Gotten Too High: Treat

Treat! There’s some early research that suggests CBD can help you from getting too high and can a high that is too strong. Since THC and CBD interact with your endocannabinoid receptors the same way, if CBD attaches first, it will block THC from attaching, so you won’t get as high or for as long. 

CBD can also help soothe the negative side-effects of THC, especially increasing anxiety or stress. As we’ve already mentioned CBD can help to reduce anxiety, so it can help to level out your high if you begin to feel stressed or panicked. 

Research into how THC and CBD interact is still early, but if you have legal access to THC and accidentally get too high, then CBD might be able to help!

TRICK or TREAT: CBD Can Be Absorbed Through Your Skin

Most people know that you can inhale or ingest CBD to get results, but there are several different kinds of products that are now available on the market.. There are CBD-infused bath bombs, lotions, and even patches, all claiming to be able to deliver CBD into the bloodstream. It’s natural to be skeptical about this claim, so can CBD be absorbed through your skin?

CBD Can Be Absorbed Through the Skin: Treat

Treat! CBD can be absorbed through the skin, but there’s a bit of nuance that customers should be aware of. Topical products, or products like creams that are placed on the skin, will not pass into your bloodstream. They can provide where they are placed (for example, rubbing a CBD lotion on sore muscles), but you won’t get the benefits that you would from inhaling or ingesting. 

However, if you look at transdermal products, the story changes. Transdermal means that a substance passes through the skin into the bloodstream. Transdermal CBD products are usually patches (like the PhenoPatch), and they deliver CBD into your bloodstream like ingesting or inhaling. 

Transdermal CBD products have an enormous advantage in absorption. Since they stay on your skin for hours, and the CBD will completely bypass your digestive system, your body has the time to absorb the vast majority of the CBD present. For example, the PhenoPatch has 80% bioavailability, the highest of PhenoLife’s CBD products. 

CBD can be absorbed through the skin, but if you’re looking to get the same effects as ingesting or inhaling CBD, make sure you get transdermal CBD products, not topical.

TRICK or TREAT: CBD Is Addicting

There’s a lot of people that still don’t know much about CBD or cannabis, which can lead to some confusion about how CBD impacts the body. A common question (or belief) is that CBD is addicting, so let’s take a look! Is CBD addicting?

CBD Is Addicting: Trick!

There is no research to indicate that CBD is addicting. In fact, it’s possible that CBD may help resolve addiction to other harmful substances. Regardless, you can rest assured knowing that CBD is not addictive, nor is there currently evidence of harm due to long-term use.

Conclusion

There’s a lot to learn about CBD, and a lot of easy ways to get confused about what CBD really does. To wrap up some our tricks and treats, we learned that CBD:

  • Doesn’t get you high
  • Exists in several forms and may vary in quality and purity from brand to brand
  • May help to manage anxiety
  • Might help soothe intense highs caused by THC
  • Can be absorbed through the skin via transdermal patches
  • Is not addicting

Choosing the right CBD product from a trustworthy brand is important. If you have questions about how to choose the right CBD product for you, then ask the experts at PhenoLife! We love answering questions from customers and making sure that they get a CBD solution that is a perfect fit for the health challenges they are facing. 

We look forward to hearing from you!

A CBD Beginner’s Guide

New to CBD? We’ve created a guide to help beginners navigate using CBD for the first time.

We’ll discuss what CBD is, the different ways you can take CBD, how to choose quality CBD products, and what to expect when you start to use CBD products. 

Getting Started with CBD

Before you dive into taking CBD, it’s good to understand what CBD actually is, where it comes from, and the different options you have to take it.

What is CBD

CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a cannabinoid naturally found in cannabis. Specifically, CBD is found in high concentrations in hemp, which is a type of cannabis that readily grows in a variety of different conditions.

Unlike other well-known cannabinoids, like THC, CBD ’t have an intoxicating effect on the user. It won’t make you high like marijuana (another kind of cannabis) will, because it doesn’t have high enough concentrations of THC and other cannabinoids that can create the classic “stoned” effect marijuana is famous for.

Ways to Take CBD

There’s a lot of different ways to take CBD, and each style of CBD offers unique benefits:

Topicals (creams)

CBD can be absorbed through the skin, which means it can be directly applied to areas of inflammation for pain relief. CBD creams are common for this reason and are often used to relieve  aching muscles or joint pain related to conditions like arthritis.

Inhaler

CBD inhalers (or vaporizers) are a common way to use CBD. With this method, cartridges in the device are connected to batteries, which heat the inside. This vaporizes the oil, which can then be inhaled by the user. Inhaling CBD creates a fast effect, but the effect doesn’t last as long as ingesting CBD through capsules or oils.

Capsules

CBD capsules are another common choice to take CBD. With capsules, all you have to do is swallow your preferred dose like you would a vitamin. Since the CBD is more concentrated, the will last much longer than the CBD you inhale. However, since it has to work its way through your digestive system before it hits your bloodstream, it will take longer to feel the effects. 

Unlike oils, capsules are pre-doses and tasteless, which may appeal to customers looking for a hassle-free way to take CBD.  

Oils

CBD oils were one of the earliest ways to take CBD, and they continue to be a popular choice. To use them, an eyedropper is used to pull out the oil (and the dropper is sometimes marked with measurements), and then the desired dose is dropped underneath the tongue. Oils, like capsules, offer a potent CBD experience, though they also take longer than inhaling CBD.

Unlike capsules, oils have a few roadblocks that may not appeal to some customers. First, the taste of oils can be , and the natural flavor of cannabis may not be appealing to some customers. Even when flavors are added, many customers don’t enjoy the taste. Also, it is difficult to precisely measure doses with oils, especially if your eyedropper doesn’t have measurements marked.

Patches

CBD patches are an easy way to get controlled, sustained doses of CBD. Since the CBD will pass through your skin, customers enjoy high levels of bioavailability, and patches can easily be worn during the day or through the night. Patches can take up to an hour to start taking effect, so other product forms will be a choice for fast-acting relief.

CBD Quality

CBD is unregulated by most governments, including the U.S. and the U.K.) which means there’s no legal enforcement of purity or quality standards. This can make it difficult for beginners to find a quality product (and beginners who end up with subpar CBD products can be turned off from using CBD entirely). 

Fortunately, there’s a few quality markers to look for when shopping for a CBD product, which can help new and veteran customers alike find a high-quality, reliable brand:

Any trustworthy CBD brand will provide 3rd party lab results of their products. This is the only reliable way to know if the CBD product is pure. If a brand doesn’t offer independent 3rd party lab results, then we encourage you to continue looking for a brand that is willing to be transparent and honest the product they’re selling.

Bioavailability

Another hallmark to look for in CBD is bioavailability. CBD bioavailability refers to how much of the CBD ends up making it to your bloodstream before it’s destroyed by your digestive system or otherwise removed by the body. Bioavailability is important because it allows lower doses of CBD to be more effective, which means you can take less CBD at a time, saving you money. 

Not all brands will talk about the bioavailability of their products (even high-quality brands). To help set you on the right track, we’ve ranked the common forms of CBD by their level of bioavailability, starting with the styles with the easiest absorption:

  1. Topicals (creams/patches) (up to 80% bioavailability)
  2. Inhaled forms of CBD (up to 35% bioavailability)
  3. Capsules (6% bioavailability, if not specifically formulated for absorption, like PhenoGel)
  4. Oils (6% bioavailability)

Choosing a brand that focuses on bioavailability is important to get the most out of the CBD you use. PhenoLife has made bioavailability a top priority among our products, creating formulas that are easily absorbed and are slowly released into your bloodstream.

How it Works

CBD works by interacting with your , which is responsible for regulating functions like appetite, mood, and sleep. It also works as an anti-inflammatory, which is why some people look to CBD to treat certain kinds of pain (more on that in a few sections below).

Time it Takes

When customers ask about how long it takes for CBD products to work, there’s two answers to that question. When you first take CBD, you’ll feel some of the effects within 15 minutes – 1hr (depending on which form you take). Customers may feel relaxed, calm, sleepy, as well as some pain-relief effects.

However, for major results, it’ll take at least a few days (and usually around a week) for enough CBD to build up in your system to feel the true effects. Below, you’ll see a graph specifically for PhenoLife products that shows the timeline you can expect for the full results to be felt:

Impact on Body

Research also suggests that CBD may have anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties, This means it may be able to help relieve inflammatory pain associated with conditions like:

  • Chronic back pain
  • Arthritis or other inflammatory joint issues
  • Crohn’s disease or other inflammatory digestive issues
  • Any pain associated with inflammation 

The antioxidative properties may help to manage or prevent diseases associated with oxidative stress, which would include:

  • Alzheimer’s 
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Cancer
  • Parkinson’s
  • Inflammatory disorders 

More research is needed to make any concrete claims about managing inflammation or diseases associated with oxidative stress, but the current research that is available is very promising for CBD.

Impact on Mind

Research suggests that CBD can help to manage a variety of anxiety disorders. If anxiety or stress is impacting your daily life, making it hard to focus on hobbies or work, or if it’s impacting your sleep, then CBD may end up being a great option for you.

Unlike other traditional anti-anxiety medications, like Xanax or Zoloft, CBD has very mild side-effects, and the vast majority of customers are able to tolerate CBD with no issues at all.

Impact on Sleep

Finally, CBD may help customers fall asleep and stay asleep in several ways. First, if you struggle to sleep due to chronic pain or anxiety, and CBD helps to relieve those issues, then your quality of sleep may improve. CBD also has the potential to help manage sleep disorders not induced by pain or anxiety, especially in high doses. 

Unlike prescription medication sleep aids, CBD does not come with any significant negative side-effects (like extreme sedation, erratic behavior, or heavy grogginess the following day).

Conclusion

CBD offers an excellent route for customers who want to tackle health challenges that have been difficult to resolve. However, different methods of CBD can be more or less effective, as well as different formulas that contain CBD.

No Smoking Day | Smoking OUT – Inhale IN

Time to discover the real difference between smoking, vaping,

and PhenoPen inhaler.

“No Smoking Day” 2022 takes place on 9th March. As part of our vision as a company to increase awareness for a healthier life, we thought you may find this article interesting.

We’re no stranger to the dangers of smoking. Most had their first cigarette under 18, likely due to peer pressure, and haven’t stopped since. The tingling, burning sensation in the throat felt by first-time smokers is the body reacting to foreign and dangerous substances.

Tobacco contains toxic chemicals like nicotine and cyanide, which are lethal in large doses. Polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are toxins found in coal, oils, and gasoline. PAHs are emitted during the combustion process of lighting a cigarette, creating problems associated with secondhand . Short-term effects of smoking might be bad breath, asthma and increased risk of illness and injury. Lung damage, stroke, cancer, gum disease, skin problems, pulmonary and heart disease are some of the debilitating long-term effects of chronic smoking.

E-Cigarettes – What you’re friends don’t know, but should

A common misconception is that e-cigarettes are a safe alternative to tobacco and similar to vapes. However, is very little research on the long-term safety of E-cigarettes. A meta-analysis of 800 studies from the National Academy of Science, Engineering, and Medicine concluded that e-cigarettes emit several toxic substances such as acetaldehyde, acrolein, and formaldehyde.
These chemicals may cause asthma, coughing, and wheezing in young and increase the risk of serious disease in the long term. Secondhand smoke inhalation from E-cigarettes contains emissions found in engine exhaust and heavy metals. There is also no evidence that using e-cigarettes can help individuals quit smoking.

Vaping – What’s in the extract?

A lot of vape extracts contain additives like PG, VG, and artificial flavors to avoid the bitter taste of hemp. (PG) is a petroleum-based, sugar alcohol found in a wide range of medical and beauty products, toiletries, and pet food. PG is colorless, odorless, and easily absorbs nicotine and flavoring, making it an ideal base for vape pens. Vegetable glycerin (VG) is the sweet-tasting, oil-based chemical responsible for creating big ‘clouds of smoke’ due to its density.
VG is smoother compared to PG, which leaves a gruff sensation on the throat. PG and VG are typically mixed in equal proportion and enhanced with nicotine, CBD, THC, and artificial flavorings for consistency and taste. PG and VG are relatively safe but long-term effects are unknown, and other problematic ingredients like have been known to make their way into vape solutions. An alternative, healthier oil called MCT (coconut oil) can be used in place of PG and VG, but these products are harder to find.

Is CBD Safe to Smoke?

Inhalation is the most efficient way to consume CBD since it enters the lungs instantly and is easily absorbed into the bloodstream. CBD alone is not toxic, but lighting a CBD cigarette stimulates combustion and releases PAHs, leading to the same respiratory concerns as smoking tobacco. Vaping is a alternative to CBD and is also more cost-effective since only a small dose is needed for a powerful effect. But not all vape devices are created equal. The best way to avoid harsh or unfamiliar chemicals is to use 100% pure hemp-based inhalation devices. These contain no PG, VG, solvents, toxic metals, or additives. The CBD is absorbed just as fast without any burning or combustion process.

What is so special about the PhenoPen inhaler?

PhenoPen may be the best solution for those who are looking for a 100% pure hemp extract with zero additives, solvents, and chemicals. Our potent formula contains 75% total cannabinoids and is cost-effective compared to other methods.
How so? Our PhenoPen utilizes an inhalation-by-evaporation method, so unlike cigarettes, the PhenoPen does not require a combustion process. This means no harsh chemicals are released and more CBD is conserved since no burning takes place. The temperature is much lower and targeted to preserve the active ingredients over time and maximize bioavailability, the amount of CBD absorbed by the body. 
The CBD extract is purer, more durable, and economical since evaporation requires the use of less CBD in order to have the same effect.

Our highly concentrated solution is naturally hemp flavored and since CBD fumes are odorless, the device can be used in enclosed spaces. If you’re looking to finally kick the habit, anxietypaininsomnia, or simply unwind when you get home – this device is for you!

The Verdict

For those wanting to vape medicinal elements of cannabis and hemp, it’s worth looking out for CBD products that are made from 100% pure . Avoid using nicotine, tobacco, or any delivery method that includes a burning process. Look out for any additives in your extract to make sure you’re getting the best CBD without any unwanted short or long-term effects.

Pills, Caps or inhale? The Different Types of CBD and How They Can Help Your Anxiety

is growing tremendously popular across the globe. Campaigns to legalize marijuana are taking the world by storm and it’s the latest hot button topic for individuals suffering from chronic or acute health conditions, be it physical or

Cannabis may not be legal in your state but it’s crucial to understand the different of hemp and their components before writing it off. THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is found in specific strains of the hemp plant at variable concentrations. THC is psychoactive and creates a ‘high’ that some enjoy and others want to stay far away from, for legal or personal reasons. That’s where Cannabidiol or joins the discussion. 

CBD is a similar compound found in hemp that provides similar medicinal benefits to THC without the high or unwanted side effects. CBD has been found effective in physical symptoms ranging from chronic illness and pain to side effects from chemotherapy. CBD is being studied as a positive alternative treatment method for people with anxiety disorders. Anxiety is generally treated with prescription drugs such as SSRIs and benzodiazepines which have strong side effects and can be easily misused and abused. 

Recent research has highlighted CBD’s ability to relieve symptoms of anxiety and improve well-being. CBD-derived hemp contains small, insignificant amounts of THC (less than 0.3%) deeming it legal in many, if not all states. Researchers and psychiatrists have applauded the evidence suggesting that CBD may be a solid intervention for anxiety and drug addiction, though many more long-term clinical trials are needed to reaffirm the evidence. Studies so far include research on animals and small-scale human studies which highlight the anti-inflammatory and anxiety-reducing properties of CBD. These are important factors in managing pain, illnesses, and mental health disorders.

CBD is available in many different forms, from and oils to sprays, lotions, and soaps. The best way to take CBD is highly specific to the individual using it and the condition being treated. It’s crucial to understand the mechanism of action and what will likely work best for you and your symptoms. Let’s take a look at three popular methods of using CBD.

inhaling is a popular choice among those looking for quick relief. Jessie Gill is an avid cannabis advocate and RN (registered nurse.) Jessie began using cannabis to treat pain from a debilitating spinal injury and found it helpful in managing her day-to-day anxiety. Inhaling vaporized CBD with a vaping device (or pen) is the quickest way to find immediate relief from acute bouts of anxiety. Using a low THC, high CBD formula, Jesse inhaled a small dose in the morning and before bed, with small but frequent top-ups during the day. This method, called micro-dosing, allowed her to treat symptoms frequently without getting high. Combining high-CBD and high-THC oils can counteract the anxiety caused by THC while addressing high levels of pain and more serious medical conditions.

Drawbacks to vaping include the high cost of certain vaporized strains depending on the state. The long-term safety of vaping has been called into question due to concerns chemicals and additives found in the and the hot coils inside the pen. Additionally, it is unknown whether vaping may cause damage to the lungs, and individuals concerned about these factors may opt for oral CBD instead.

CBD oils and sublingial sprays are becoming a widely popular choice for customers.  CBD oil is placed under the tongue using a pre-measured dropper or mixed with a beverage like juice or tea. CBD oil penetrates the membranes in the skin, traveling across millions of tiny capillaries lining the mucosa where it’s quickly and directly absorbed into the bloodstream. CBD oil is best taken once or twice a day but can be used at intervals to alleviate symptoms. A lower dosage may begin at 25 mg for anxiety and climb upwards to 75 or 100 mg for moderate to severe pain. CBD oils are a prime choice for individuals who dislike the taste of capsules or can’t swallow pills. Oils may emit a strong odor or cannabis-like taste, but many oils out there today are infused with natural flavors and aromas to offset unfavorable smells or tastes. Some oils are mixed into an ointment or lotion and can be rubbed into the skin. 

CBD pills and capsules are soft gels that are swallowed like any other pill. Capsules are predosed and more precise than oils, and generally tasteless. Capsules are slower to absorb and produce results because of the ‘first-pass effect,’ whereby the outer coating dissolves and the capsule is partially broken down while traveling through the digestive system and liver. Capsules have been used to improve , -related problems, depression, anxiety, and pain. Capsules are a better option when seeking full-body, slow but steady effects. If you’re seeking treatment for localized pain or tension, topical cream or ointment may be a better choice.

In conclusion- CBD may be a great treatment option for your anxiety. Keep in mind many products are not approved by the FDA and it’s important to do diligent research to ensure the quality, ingredients, and concentration of the CBD used in each product is appropriate for your needs. Make sure to speak with your healthcare provider before stopping or changing any medications you’re currently on and to clarify how to best incorporate CBD into your medical regimen.

Why CBD is getting some serious attention?

CBD has all kinds of fans, from cannabis connoisseurs to those who love the wellness life

We’re hearing it everywhere CBD… People love CBD, and it’s not just for any explanation, CBD can help treat a wide range of issues, from pain and depression to anxiety. If we will take it into numbers, 62% of CBD users state they use CBD to treat a medical condition.

Don’t get it wrong, you don’t need to have a medical issue to benefit from CBD. People take CBD to sleep or even if they are just having a stressful day. And ’s even CBD in hair and skin-care product. In general, we can say that there are people that just take CBD for a better and full of wellness life.

Don’t be turned off by CBD because it’s a found in the marijuana plant. It’s almost impossible to get high when CBD is extracted from , the non-psychoactive sister plant of marijuana.

CBD’s Brief History

CBD was discovered in the 1940s among other cannabinoids such as THC and CBN when pharmacology studies were first conducted on cannabis. While this may be the first time we’re extracting cannabinoids and using isolated CBD, our use of cannabis has a much longer history. It’s predicted cannabis use dates back to 5,000 years ago mostly for medicinal reasons but also for recreational uses and even in religious ceremonies, also, industrial hemp was used to create paper, textiles, and rope.

How Does CBD Work?

While many people believe CBD is only another passing trend, there is real data behind CBD’s effectiveness. It all begin’s in our endocannabinoid system. 

When marijuana enters our system, the cannabinoids attach to our cells using cell receptors. These cell receptors control cell-to-cell communication, helping improve many of our bodily processes. 

The reason why CBD doesn’t have psychoactive properties is that CBD affects different cell receptors than psychoactive cannabinoids such as THC. 

CBD affects the CB2 receptors. These receptors are found throughout our body, such as in our nervous system, , immune system, and digestive system. This is why CBD may treat a variety of different

SO WHY DO PEOPLE LOVE CBD?

Even though marijuana legalization is increasing, marijuana for medicinal and/or recreational purposes is not legal in all countries. However, CBD is. As long as it’s extracted from hemp, you can buy CBD almost in any state. Research is still being done to prove its benefits. But what we know until now is positive enough for us to use CBD and the hemp plant. While we don’t completely understand all of the CBD benefits here are some ways you may benefit from CBD:

  •  Help overcome an addiction (alcoholism, nicotine, etc.)
  • Decrease anxiety
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Decreases pain
  • Lowers inflammation
  • Decreases pain
  • Decreases depression
  • Treats seizures
  • Aids in gut healthy

While it’s unclear if CBD can benefit specific ailments, such as cancer, CBD can help relieve the associated with these severe diseases. Besides, CBD is also a powerful antioxidant, aiding your overall health in a variety of different ways. Keep in mind, you should always talk to your doctor before taking CBD and you shouldn’t replace any of your current medications with CBD unless recommended by a doctor

It’s Safe

As discussed, CBD has no psychoactive properties! Another reason why people love it. The ability to continue the daily routine without feeling stoned or unfocused. While we need to understand certain facts better, such as CBD’s interaction with other medications, studies that made already shown that CBD is a safe alternative to many different medications. Furthermore, as of now no known about any cases of CBD and all other cannabis products caused any deaths.

There are many Different Ways to consume CBD

The variety of methods for taking CBD is wide. Most of the time it will depend on what you’re using CBD for, certain methods may benefit you over other methods. One of the most popular CBD consumption methods is vaping CBD. Unlike drops that take longer to feel the since the digestion process takes longer, the inhaling action effects instantly,  the vaping is discrete, and the vapor is easier on your lungs than smoke. If you have centralized pain, such as arthritis, you can use a CBD cream to relieve pain in that area.

Your Pets Can Even Take CBD Too

Like us, all animals have an (endocannabinoid system). This means you can give CBD to your pets. The CBD may help to calm your pet and help them sleep. Many pet owners love giving CBD to an anxious pet. From what is known until today, CBD is also safe for your pets! The facts are muddier for pets than they are for humans and vets can’t write a prescription for CBD. But, It’s still you’ll talk to your vet before giving your pet CBD and not stop taking other medications.

What Do the Experts Say?

By now, we all can understand why people love CBD. But what about the experts? The reviews are mixed. Some will say the evidence isn’t there to support some of the CBD benefits. With that said, some doctors aren’t ignoring the strong evidence collected by now. While doctors can’t prescribe CBD (unless they own a medical marijuana practice), they can recommend the cannabinoid as a natural alternative to traditional medicine. 

What is the Right Dosage of CBD to take?

A ’s Guide on the Right CBD’s Dosage to Take

CBD is the new medicine. Many people are using CBD for purposes and are from the product. is no extensive research to confirm CBD’s health , but many people claim CBD has been instrumental in their health. Therefore, it would be best if you learned about this magical drug. CBD is available in formulations; tablets, gummies, and oils. This guide aims to help you know more about CBD and inform you about the correct dosage to take.

What are the possible benefits of CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound in the plant. There is still a lot of research that experts need to do about the possible CBD benefits. However, the little research that scientists have done shows that CBD has specific beneficial mental health effects;

  • Alleviating stress and depression. According to studies, CBD influences serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that affects your mood. Therefore, according to the studies, CBD can help regulate serotonin and help treat depression.
  • CBD can help improve your sleep quality. Experts conducted a study, and the people who took CBD reported improved sleep. However, the scientists cannot yet explain the result, but they believe that CBD can improve sleep.
  • It can help anxiety. 20% of American adults suffer from anxiety, and according to research, CBD can help these people alleviate anxiety.

Also, research has linked CBD to have therapeutic benefits for many other conditions other than mental health conditions. World Health Organization suggests that CBD can help treat;

  • Arthritis
  • Inflammation
  • Nausea
  • Pain
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Psychosis

What is the correct dosage to take?

There is no correct dosage because people react differently to CBD. Therefore, it is up to you to know the dosage that fits you.

There are specific dosages that research studies have used. These dosages vary depending on the condition. The following is a list of the number of milligrams the researchers gave to the persons per day;

  • Bowel disease- 10mg
  • Anxiety- 300 to 600mg
  • Parkinson’s disease- 75 to 300 mg
  • Poor sleep- 25 mg
  • Psychosis- 600mg

However, before any CBD product, please consult your doctor on the right, especially if you take CBD alongside other medicines. If you take CBD in excess, you may suffer negative side effects; hence, visit your local physician for advice.

Some FDA-approved CBD products have dosage information, and you can use the details to the correct dosage to take. An example of an FDA-approved CBD medication is Epidiolex. FDA has approved Epidiolex for treating seizures in people with specific types of epilepsy. For Epidiolex, you should start with a dosage of 5 mg per kilogram of your weight.

When you are finding the correct dose to take your CBD, put the following into consideration;

  • Your sensitivity to CBD. People’s reaction to CBD differs. Some people can tolerate a high intake of CBD, while others cannot. As you take CBD, ensure that you assess how you feel as you take different doses.
  • Other factors include the product’s CBD concentration, age, weight, overall health, and sex; for example, if you are heavy, you need more CBD, and if you are old, you should take less CBD. Also, generally, men can handle more CBD than women.

Use a dosage calculator

You can find CBD dosage calculators online. You can use these calculators to help you determine the correct dosage to take. However, these calculators are not 100% efficient, but it is an excellent place to start.

Always start with a low dose

Unless you have consulted a doctor, you should never exceed 20 mg a day when you start taking the CBD product. Do this for a week to assess the CBD’s effect on your body. Ensure you can tolerate the CBD’s intake and the dosage is not giving you any side effects. Once you confirm this and are still not getting the desired effect, you can increase your dosage by 5 mg per week until you find the correct dose.

What is the maximum amount of CBD to take?

In many studies, researchers have found that taking 600 mg per day is safe. However, one study concluded that one might safely take and tolerate 1 500 mg a day. However, this information should not influence you to take a high dosage of CBD. Always start small or consult your doctor on the amount you can take.

How should you take CBD?

CBD products are available in various forms; nasal sprays, gummies, oils, capsules, and tablets. The most common way of taking CBD is oil. The developers make CBD oil by mixing CBD with a carrier oil such as coconut oil.

How you take your CBD may depend on what you want to treat. For example, if you want to improve your mood, consider taking CBD as a dietary supplement. However, if you are targeting a symptom, it is recommendable for you to take oil, a gummy, or a capsule to get a concentrated dose.

What type of CBD should you take?

Sometimes you may have CBD products that are not pure. There are three types of CBD;

  • Isolate- Contains pure CBD.
  • Broad-spectrum- Has CBD and other cannabinoids but does not have
  • Full-spectrum- Has CBD, other cannabinoids, and THC

Full-spectrum CBD is recommendable since research suggests that CBD is more effective when combined with other cannabinoids. THC has some side effects, but CBD may help mitigate the THC’s effects.

What are some side effects of CBD?

Researchers consider CBD to be safe to take. However, there are still some side effects that you may have due to taking CBD. They include;

  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Stomach upset

Conclusion

There is no universally-accepted CBD dosage. You may need to experiment to know the correct dosage for you. If you don’t want to experiment, consult your doctor to learn the right dose to take. Always start small and enjoy the journey. Many studies suggest that CBD offers many CBD benefits, and it would be best if you try it.

CBD & anxiolysis

It should come as no surprise that cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive synthetic fix found in marijuana plants, is experiencing a resurgence in the wellness and health business. The list of expected CBD advantages seems to be implausible.

Even though scientific research on CBD’s effects is limited, growing evidence suggests that it might be for various conditions ranging from a throbbing pain to a sleeping difficulty and that it could even help cancer patients with the chemotherapy-induced illness. However, stress is maybe one of the most well-known conditions that CBD may aid with.

According to a 2018 cross-sectional study of CBD consumers, “stress” ranks third among the top three reasons for marijuana-derived medicine, behind “misery” and “torment.” CBD might be a welcome reprieve for some, given that around 20% of the adult population in the United States reports suffering some stress.

To be safe, you should always see your primary care physician before putting anything into your body, regardless of the purpose of doing so. You should have completed your assignment as well. To start here’s everything you need to know about cannabidiol (CBD) and if it may assist with anxiety.

What exactly is CBD, yet again?

CBD is one of over 100 synthetic combinations present in the marijuana plant, exploited to create both cannabis and contemporary hemp. CBD may be found in both marijuana and modern hemp. CBD is a synthetic cousin of tetrahydrocannabinol, often known as , and has many of the same qualities. The fundamental difference between the two mixes is the activity of a single iota. In any event, is one crucial distinction between the two: THC may make you feel euphoric, while CBD does not.

The CBD offered to customers is a hemp-based product that cannot include more than 0.3 percent THC.

THC concentrations of 0.3 percent convergence. For a reality, no matter how much you eat, you will not get ecstatic.

Okay, I get what you’re at… Draw the component that CBD uses to reduce stress.

Brushing, flower, hemp family, blossoming plant, weed, logo, leaf, green, plant, natural science

Regardless, even though research on CBD is still in its early stages, it is thought to assist the body use serotonin, a neurotransmitter, and synapse involved in mood regulation. Serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), a kind of medicine used to treat anxiety and depression, are thought to act similarly to SSRIs.

According to James Murrough, MD, director of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai’s Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program, SSRIs function by concentrating on a serotonin receptor known as 5-HT1A in the and increasing serotonin accessibility in the brain.

In this vein, research published in 2019 indicated that CBD increased 5-HT1A transmission in mice and reduced “unease-like behaviors.” This discovery will now be tested on real people by genuine scientists.

Are there any other CBD and stress studies that have been conducted thus far?

Even though the majority of the evidence for every day, low-dose CBD comes from personal accounts (people saying things like “CBD has helped me deal with my anxiety”), there are “solid clues in the clinical writing that CBD has anti-tension properties,” according to Dr. Steve P., chair of Curaleaf’s clinical advisory board and representative overseer of the Duke Cancer Institute. Curaleaf is a clinical and health weed administrator and has dispensaries, development offices, and handling offices all across the nation. [Editor’s Note: Curaleaf is a weed administrator specializing in clinical and wellness marijuana.

If you’re interested in learning more, have a look at two tests that are well worth your time.

CBD may help persons with public speaking anxiety by reducing uneasiness and gloomy “self-articulations, such as “I’m nothing but horrible at this,” according to findings from a 2011 study.

According to a detailed evaluation of 49 existing studies, CBD is an effective therapy for anxiousness and frenzy concerns, as well as a post-horrendous pressure problem.

Additional research demonstrating CBD’s potential to alleviate anxiousness is also available here.

What would be the best way for me to go about using CBD for anxiety?

Before we get started, it’s essential to know that CBD isn’t suitable for everyone and may with certain medicines (like blood thinners and hostile to seizure drugs). According to Hampton Atkinson, MD, co-director of the University of California, San Diego’s Center for Medical Cannabis Research, it’s critical to speak with your primary care physician before incorporating CBD into your daily routine, regardless of your disease.

After you’ve obtained the all-unmistakable, consider starting with a CBD color. The term “bioavailability” refers to how quickly the body retains a drug. You may have never tried a medicine or CBD product before. While planning your show, keep the following points in mind.

You may need to look at various color options.

The item this is referred to as is a sublingual augmentation. To begin, place a dropper filled with fluid under the tip of your nose’s extension. Allow a few seconds for the medication to reach your circulatory system before proceeding.

Calculate your optimal drug measurements.

It isn’t easy to find the perfect term. Because there are no dosage standards for CBD, it’s all a bit of a guessing game at the moment. Because everyone is , you must experiment with various foods and portion sizes every day to determine which one is best for you.

Dr. P. recommends starting with a lower-intensity drug and taking a 1-milliliter dosage in the evening, approximately an hour before bedtime. (In general, this works out to be a dropper-full, but keep an eye on the container.) (Remember to stick with your CBD habit for at least a month since you may not notice any results away.)

Last but not least, where would I be able to get high-quality CBD products?

Dr. P. also recommends that if you’ve found a CBD product you’re interested in purchasing, you check to see whether the company that creates it makes the results of independent free testing on their products available. With the findings, you should determine how much CBD is present in a product and whether or not any other potentially hazardous ingredients are present.

You might use it if you want to be extra safe. Begin your investigation by inquiring about where and how the organization’s contemporary hemp is grown, processed, and manufactured. While the origin of the CBD is less critical, the CBD itself should indicate that the person is willing, to be honest.

Furthermore, as you are well aware, knowledge is power, particularly when putting things into your own body.

Are There Risks Associated With Vaping PG and VG?

Time to know what is and and what you should know about it

THC is the psychoactive compound found in cannabis and it can be mixed with vape liquids to be taken in a vaporizer. However, the vape pods which led to the are thought to have contained another additive called Vitamin E acetate. It’s unclear why this , which is clearly not safe for vaping, was put into the vape liquid, although some have suggested that it’s to do with consistency. We’re taking a closer look at the primary ingredients in vape liquids; namely PG, VG, and MCT.

What is PG?
 
PG stands for Propylene Glycol and it belongs to the chemical class of additives but is non-intoxicating. PG, like VG, is considered to be sugar alcohol and is found in a range of everyday products. PG is a petroleum-based liquid that has no color or smell. It makes for good nicotine (or THC, CBD) carrier and is associated with the “throat hit” that many vapers enjoy. PG also carries any flavorings in the vape liquid well. PG is found in toothpaste, medical products, pet food, and beauty products.
 
For the time being, no one knows the effect of inhaling PG and certainly not the long-term effects as vaping has only been around for around a decade. Most people who vape PG have no issues with it, however, ’s no getting away from the fact that PG is a chemical, and is oil-based, and that is certainly a concern for some people.
 

What is VG?

VG stands for Vegetable Glycerin and is a natural chemical extracted from vegetable oils as the name suggests. VG is used in vape liquids to produce dense clouds of vapor and has a sweet taste. VG is also much thicker than PG, making the vape liquid appear more appealing. The other difference between PG and VG is that VG is smoother on the throat and some vapers even vape 100% VG-based liquids. PG and VG are usually mixed in a 1:1 ratio to make vape juice, and then the nicotine, THC, CBD, or flavorings are added into the mix.

Vaping products exist on the market that contains MCT, also known as coconut oil. MCT is rare to find in vaping products but it is available and some people consider it to be safer than PG or VG.

With that said, for those interested in , there are products that contain neither PG, VG, or MCT. For those wanting to vape medicinal elements of cannabis and hemp, it’s worth looking out for vape liquids which are made from 100% pure hemp extract and nothing else. PhenoPen cartridges contain only pure hemp extract (with various waxes and oils removed), CBD (300mg per cartridge), other minor cannabinoids and .
 
PhenoPen liquid is rigorously tested by third-party labs and contains no solvents, pesticides, heavy metals, or . If you’re interested in vaping , high-quality CBD with pure hemp extract and no PG or VG, check out the products page on our website.

New Study Finds Vaping Doesn’t Weaken Immune System Like Smoking

Whit all the negative headlines in the media these days surrounding , a new study has concluded something good vaping, especially when compared to smoking tobacco.

Scientists from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette gave mice a strong dose of Streptococcus pneumoniae – the strain that leads to the majority of cases of pneumonia caught commonly by people in the street or workplace. The crux of the study carried out on the mice was that vaping appeared to have less of a negative effect on the system than smoking.

And while smoking tobacco increases the risk of catching pneumonia, vaping does not seem to do the same. While tobacco smoke can activate genes of the bacteria and lead to issues, according to the study, vapor did not.

The recent study on mice looked closely at gene expression patterns in the mice, who were given either E-liquid vapor with nicotine, E-liquid vapor without nicotine, and cigarette smoke. The findings were interesting and quite compelling, even if they were only results from mice. The researchers found that E-liquid vapor without nicotine “switched on” just 14 genes.

E-liquid with nicotine activated 264 genes, and smoke from tobacco switched on 982 genes. Of those genes, most were in some way involved in response, and that’s one factor that increases the likelihood of an infection.

As Dr. Kulkarni concluded, according to the same report, “Our work is part of a long series of observations coming from a number of research labs trying to define what effects e-cigarette vapor exposure may have on human and to differentiate between the effects of flavoring chemicals and nicotine.”

At the same time, according to Carlos A. Gonzalez, Ph.D., who published the previous research related to smoking and pneumonia, smoke from tobacco causes oxidative stress and alters responses of inflammatory cells.

It was only a matter of time before researchers would set up experiments to check the safety and dangers of vaping as compared to smoking, especially in light of the recent and grave vaping controversy. The latest study is a step in the direction for vaping, and especially for vapers who have given up smoking cigarettes and were concerned about the recent controversy.

The best advice, for now, is still to stay away from THC-based E-liquids and cartridges until further clarification is forthcoming from bodies like the and .

Bear in mind that PhenoPen contains no THC and is made from 100% pure hemp with no other additives, solvents, or heavy metals.

Why Is CBD Content In Vape Liquid So Important?

Do you know how much CBD you’re per puff from when you vape? It depends on a number of factors, such as CBD concentration, the volume of inhalation and duration of the puff.  You need to know what you’re if you want to get the dose just right.

CBD has risen to popularity in recent years and is the favored natural remedy for thousands of people, treating a variety of different ailments. While some people use CBD to deal with symptoms of anxiety, others use it to treat pain from inflammation and . The true therapeutic (and potentially medical) of CBD are still a bit of a mystery as researchers slowly reveal its application for treating many more conditions, including severe and chronic ones.

When purchasing CBD oil tinctures, vape juices, or edibles, each product (bottle) contains different amounts of CBD in terms of concentration, often referred to as ‘CBD percentage.’ CBD percentage is one of the most vital pieces of the puzzle when it comes to buying the right CBD – whether online or from a retail outlet. ’s overall CBD content which is the total number of milligrams contained in the product. Then, there’s the CBD concentration as a percentage and also the amount of CBD per ‘dose.’

  • CBD Concentration (%) – It’s possible to tell how much CBD there is inside a CBD oil tincture or vape liquid by the percentage. Taking as an example, the products contain approximately 59.7% of CBD per cartridge. That means that the other 40% is comprised of other minor cannabinoids, terpenes, and pure extract in this case.
  • Overall CBD Content (mg) – The overall CBD content in a product you purchase is one of the main things to look out for. Whether it’s or Oil Tinctures, the total amount of CBD in milligrams (mg) should be displayed prominently on the label of the product or on the website.  With PhenoPen, there’s a potent 300mg overall CBD content per vape cartridge.
  • CBD Per Dose – Without getting caught up or confused by the terminology here, this refers to the dose (amount) of CBD per capsule, per dropper, or per puff, depending on whether it’s a CBD Oil Tincture or . There are roughly 300 puffs per PhenoPen cartridge so that means approximately 1mg of CBD per puff.

In terms of bioavailability, is the most efficient and most effective way of taking the natural plant compound into the system. Bioavailability refers to the amount of active ingredients absorbed into the body, and CBD vape is thought to deliver the most substantial amount, and more than when taken orally in tinctures or edibles. As it stands, upwards of 56% of the active compound enters the system when vaped, as opposed to lower percentages when CBD is ingested. That translates to up to 5 times the amount of CBD when vaped over other delivery methods.

You need to be careful when it comes to buying the right CBD vape product to meet your needs. For example, say you purchase a 30ml bottle of 1000mg CBD concentration vape liquid; that equates to roughly 33mg of CBD per 1ml of vape juice. That is very much on the mild side, and a significant number of puffs would be required by most people to feel any effects. For those seeking more potent relief from their symptoms, there are numerous disposable CBD vape cartridges on the market. Many of these contain 1ml of vape liquid and 250mg of CBD; that equates to 250mg of CBD per 1ml and is significantly stronger than the previous example.

Having explained more in detail about the importance of CBD concentrations in vape juice, we want to tell you why PhenoPen is a great choice. For those needing fast and effective relief from conditions like anxiety, insomnia, and inflammation, PhenoPen is a natural choice. As well as containing only 100% Pure Hemp Extract as the carrier liquid, PhenoPen’s proprietary cartridges contain an unprecedented 300mg of CBD per 0.5ml. Apart from the Pure Hemp Extract and high CBD content (59.7%), PhenoPen contains other minor cannabinoids and terpenes from hemp plants. With PhenoPen, you get approximately 1mg of CBD per puff, and that makes it simple and straightforward to titrate with.

If you’re interested in a premium CBD vape experience and are looking for powerful and long-lasting effects, PhenoPen is the right answer. PhenoPen also represents amazing value for money as one cartridge equates to roughly one ounce (28g) of extracted CBD flowers.

Why smoking CBD flower can be good for you

looking for help from a variety of debilitating medical issues are increasingly turning to Cannabidiol (), a previously misunderstood molecule that was one of the most groundbreaking drugs of the last decade. Due to the numerous studies that have been done, CBD is well-known for its many therapeutic effects and for helping people stay healthy and happy. As the non-psychoactive ingredient in , Cannabidiol is well-known.

It’s already being used by a large number of other people daily. Most of them, on the other hand, use it as an extract in a variety of commercially accessible goods. However, not everyone is aware of the advantages and disadvantages of these various products and distribution methods.

Familiarize yourself with CBD flower and their origins

Both indoor and outdoor cannabis plants can produce high-CBD cannabis flowers. However, their level of quality differs. Cultivated indoors, CBD flowers are far superior in terms of flavor and concentrations, whilst those grown outside are far less potent.

Indoor-grown CBD flower strains can have a CBD dry weight concentration of 25-27%, which is higher than any THC-rich strain and even better than online-sold strains. To assure the purity and cannabinoid concentration of your cannabis blends, you grow them organically.

Grow time for CBD-rich hemp varieties is roughly 4 weeks, while blossom time is between 8 and 9 weeks. These flowers can be collected, dried, and decarboxylated (lost their strength) in airtight containers when they are at their peak efficacy. It is possible to use the dried flowers that have been ground to a fine powder.

If you’d rather not deal with the inconvenience of cultivating your own, you can always order some from a reputable retailer. Several well-known companies sell CBD flowers. Lab-tested and optimized for varied health demands, they are available.

Over CBD Extracts, CBD Flowers Has More Advantages

1. Customizable Strains and Their Effects

As long as you control your raw resources, you’ll be able to get the best result, right? The same is true with cannabidiol. CBD flowers allow you to customize the cannabinoid and terpene content to your heart’s delight. Indica, Sativa, and even hybrid strains of cannabis can be used. Sativa strains, on the other hand, are recognized for their mental clarity, vigor, and ability to focus.

In addition, each strain has its unique blend of cannabis-specific terpenes, which may have therapeutic benefits of their own. They can improve or harmonize the effects of these strains. The unique aroma of each strain is due to a unique blend of flavonoids and chlorophyll. As a result, a variety of hybrid strains are more popular, as they provide a more even dosage.

2. Splendor in the Variety of Delivery Methods Available

You have complete control over the way CBD flowers are used, which is one of the best things about them. You can smoke (wrapped in cigarette paper) or vape (using an e-) CBD flowers after they’ve been properly dried. You can also use the dried flowers as tinctures or add extracts to food preparations.

3. Entourage effect

Cannabinoids and other phytonutrients are more potent and beneficial when they have a wide range of cannabinoids and other terpenes, proteins, flavonoids, fats acids, minerals, and other components. The “entourage effect” refers to the cumulative effect on the body of all the various chemical components found in cannabis. Together, CBD and THC have a medicinal impact that is more potent than the sum of their parts because of this synergy.

There is a problem with purchasing CBD products because many manufacturers make their formulations by isolating some cannabinoids or completely deleting other cannabinoids and terpenes. CBD flowers, on the other hand, provide the entourage effect.

The Question Is: Is Smoking a Beneficial Method of Ingestion?

CBD tincture made from your own homegrown CBD flowers should include the highest possible concentration of the flower’s high-quality components. However, how much of the medication reaches your body depends on the method of delivery. That’s why we’re focusing on the technique of ingestion.

To What Extent Does Inhalation Predominate Over Other Delivery Methods?

You won’t get high from vaping or smoking CBD flowers the way you do from smoking marijuana, but you can still smoke CBD flowers if you want to. Bioavailability is higher with inhalation or pulmonary administration than with the majority of other routes of delivery, such as injection. Intravenous administration, or injection into the blood arteries, is similar to this method.

To avoid the first-pass effect, known as the loss of strength while being processed by the digestive system, CBD inhalation provides a stronger, more noticeable, and more potent experience than other ways of administration.

Benefits of smoking CBD flower

It’s the best way to get CBD into your system. For a better flavor and experience, use a high-quality strain of cannabis with a high-quality scent, you get more than simply pleasure; you get a boost in energy, relaxation, and from your symptoms.

Compared to other methods of ingesting CBD, inhaling or vaping CBD flowers has a more immediate and potent effect. Within two minutes of taking it, the effects begin to take hold and last at least an hour.

Because of the increased entourage effect of CBD smoking/vaping, inhaling CBD has a more potent and well-rounded effect than ingesting it orally.

Smoking CBD Flowers Has Side Effects

Smoking CBD has some drawbacks, just like any other form of ingesting the cannabinoid. They are as follows:

I.CBD’s effects often last no more than an hour. If you suffer from chronic pain or anxiety, you may want to keep a few extra joints on hand. Even if the effects of the previous puff have worn off, the residual CBD concentration in your blood will continue to boost the effects of each puff, even if other types of CBD use have not.

II.Smoking can damage the lungs and respiratory system. Because of this, it is best to avoid using this technique of delivery if you have a long illness.

III.Additionally, persons with weak hearts who inhale CBD flowers may experience heart difficulties as well (even though CBD promotes heart health).

IV.Additionally, moderate side effects like dry mouth, nausea, and dizziness are possible. These are most commonly connected with taking too many in a short period back-to-back.

How much of a high do you get from using CBD flowers?

When someone smokes pot, they’re more likely to think of getting high. When it comes to marijuana, people don’t realize that you can only get high if the THC (or tetrahydrocannabinol) content is high enough. The psychoactive ingredient in marijuana is THC. The psychotropic property is unique among cannabinoids and terpenes.

CBD flower strains that contain less than 0.3 percent THC are considered hemp (by dry weight). There’s nothing to worry about as long as you get your CBD flower or hemp seed from a licensed grower. YOU WILL NOT EXPERIENCE ANY HIGH SIDE EFFECTS!

Our advice – Inhalation is the most efficient way to consume CBD since it enters the lungs instantly and is easily absorbed into the bloodstream. CBD alone is not toxic, but lighting a CBD cigarette stimulates combustion and releases PAHs, leading to the same respiratory concerns as smoking tobacco. Vaping is a better alternative to CBD flowers and is also more cost-effective since only a small dose is needed for a powerful effect. But not all vape devices are created equal. The best way to avoid harsh or unfamiliar chemicals is to use 100% pure hemp-based inhalation devices. These contain no , VG, solvents, toxic metals, or additives. The CBD is absorbed just as fast without any burning or combustion process.
