What was once an industry secret has now become a standard – it doesn’t matter if you’re a CBD beginner or an expert, your CBD oil experience should always deliver effective results as that’s what high-quality full-spectrum CBD oil should offer with every drop.

Our product education resource below covers everything CBD oil, from frequently asked questions to recipes and product guidance. We continue to update and upgrade information to bring you the very best CBD oil guide you will find.

What Is CBD Oil


CBD Oil is a viscous liquid that contains concentrated hemp extracts (CBD-RICH) as well as a carrier oil. CBD a naturally occurring chemical compound produced by Cannabis Sativa plants.

The most common forms of cannabis Sativa are marijuana and hemp. Cannabinoids are produced by these plants predominantly as a resin. There are many forms of cannabinoid, the most commonly discussed in the industry are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Other strains are also being isolated for sale because each affects the body’s endocannabinoid system differently.

Some like THC cause the feeling of euphoria or “high” that contributes to it being considered a drug. CBD lessens neurological pain and helps to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system to bring about a relaxed state. CBD oil itself also has many industry synonyms or nicknames, as well as, interesting but confusing terms associated with it like “full-spectrum” and “broad-spectrum.”


Well, directly, CBD is short for its scientific name Cannabidiol. The word oil is added because it is infused with a carrier oil.


Cannabidiol oil, which you now know is better known as CBD oil, has obtained several other names over the past few years due to product innovations and consumer needs that we’d like to bring to your attention. You can expect to find any of these names below during your search to buy the BEST CBD OIL:

  • Hemp CBD-Rich Oil
  • CBD Infused Oil
  • CBD Hemp Oil
  • Pure CBD Oil
  • Gold CBD Oil
  • Industrial Hemp CBD Oil Extract

Now that the names have been verified, let’s talk about all your different types available for you to consider.


There are four main types that are sold in today’s market and we will list them below in order of product quality and effectiveness (least to greatest).

  1. Pure CBD Isolate oil
  2. Broad Spectrum CBD oil
  3. Full Spectrum CBD oil
  4. Water-Soluble CBD oil

So, what do they mean and how are they different? Simply put, these terms are used to define what kind of hemp extract is used in a product. Each type presents important factors to consider, and understanding the difference is essential for every CBD user.

Made with pure CBD isolate and usually mixed with either Non-GMO MCT oil, hemp oil, olive oil, or hemp seed oil. This is considered the cheapest as well as the least effective cannabidiol oil out of the four but it is still known to be effective when used simply as a daily wellness nutrient.


Broad-spectrum CBD is like a mix between full-spectrum CBD and pure CBD Isolate. Like full spectrum CBD, the other compounds found within the plant are preserved in the extract, however, virtually all traces of THC are completely removed.

This is done in order to prevent any minor psychoactive effects a person could unlikely experience from a full-spectrum oil that they might not want. Broad-spectrum CBD still contains multiple detectable cannabinoids and can deliver the enhanced benefits without the risk of psychotropic effects of THC.

Broad Spectrum CBD is best for individuals with conditions that pure CBD alone can’t seem to alleviate the issue the consumer is dealing with but also adhering to the individuals with either a sensitivity to THC, individuals with strict occupational THC-laws, as well as hesitant first time CBD users.


This is considered the highest quality type of CBD oil hemp extracts. It promotes the entourage effect (which we will discuss in detail below) by utilizing the wellness benefit potential of the entire industrial hemp plant. Cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, & omegas are all found within.

With these products, you will get the following phytocannabinoids: CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC, & 0.3% THC.

THC, you say?! Yes, that’s correct…

These are the only CBD products that contain Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Fear not as the THC content is only offered in trace amounts and cannot surpass the legal limit of 0.3% THC. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) allows this amount of THC because users are not at risk of actually getting high because the THC content is so minimal


This one’s easy, there is no such thing as “water-soluble CBD oil”. Water is not soluble in oil, therefore deemed impossible. With that said, there is such thing as “Water Soluble CBD”, but for this to be accurate and true, it must be infused with a water-soluble liquid, not an oil. Water Soluble CBD is usually infused with alcohol as a CBD tincture or it is homogenized with flavored water or juice.

What Does CBD Do


All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors. The human body produces certain cannabinoids on its own. It also has two receptors for cannabinoids, called the CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are present throughout the body, but many are in the brain. The CB1 receptors in the brain deal with coordination and movement, pain, emotions, mood, thinking, appetite, memories, and other functions. CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system. They affect inflammation and pain.

Researchers once believed that CBD attached to these CB2 receptors, but it now appears that CBD does not attach directly to either receptor. Instead, it seems to direct the body to communicate better between the human body’s management system as well as to activate the use of our own endocannabinoids.

The entourage effect is the result of the collegial symbiotic relationship of all naturally occurring cannabinoids found within the hemp plant. In layman’s terms, it is the result of all cannabinoids working together harmoniously to produce the effect that nature intended it to. It is the natural components of the plant interacting within our bodies and this will yield a stronger influence in comparison than if only one of the cannabinoids is used alone.

This is the Entourage Effect.

It’s important to know that this effect can only occur when one consumes a REAL full-spectrum cannabis product.

The emphasis on the word “real” above is critical because the entourage effect can only occur if all the components and chemical compounds naturally found within the cannabis plant (cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and fatty acids) are still present after extraction and especially inside the finished product.

If cannabinoids are missing from the final product (which you can verify via lab tests), the entourage effect cannot necessarily be obtained. It also means that the product in question is not a full spectrum CBD product, regardless of what the label claims it to be. The majority of the hemp plant’s nutrients/components must be detectable in order to be successful in achieving the entourage effect.

how to take CBD oil


Learning the best ways on how to take CBD is directly associated with the particular reason of why you want to take it in the first place. Basically, the best way to take CBD oil largely depends on your needs.

For instance:

  • If you want to take CBD oil for pain, you may want to combine multiple forms of delivery.
  • If your goal is to use CBD oil for anxiety, a quick delivery method like vape may be best suited to combat panic.
  • You may decide to use CBD oil for arthritis and want to rub it into your skin directly or through a topical like CBD lotion or CBD salve.
  • It might also benefit you to take cannabidiol a specific way based on lifestyle factors, fear of social stigma, or because of taste or texture.

We do suggest that you consult our dosage guide below and also consult your healthcare practitioner before using this product.

CBD Dosage Calculator


For ingested CBD (edibles/sublingual) products, here is the specific formula for you to use in order to calculate the perfect CBD dosage or Suggested Serving Size specifically for you:

Body Weight (lbs) x 0.325mg (CBD) = Recommended CBD MG Dose

Here is an example of how to calculate in real-time:

  • John Doe weighs 150lbs and wants to find is personal CBD dosage recommendation.  Here is how the mathematical equation would look like:
    • 150lbs x 0.325mg of CBD = 48.75mg of CBD (you can round to 50mg for easier measurements and more accurate serving sizes)

There is a plethora of information that we’ve accumulated over the years and well, all of this great guidance deserved its own dedicated article. For a more in-depth look into this topic, please read the full article here, “CBD Dosage Guide“.


There is no certified medical evidence that CBD oil consumption is harmful. In fact, some Doctors claim that CBD is a MUST-HAVE for the human body if achieving total body homeostasis is the goal (which it should be).

When you place an order for your edibles online or buy them in-person at a local store, these products are safe as long as you buy them from The only things to worry about when buying CBD is finding out more about who is actually supplying it and what their SOP’s are for producing CBD products.

  • Certified by their State’s Department of Agriculture for Food, Health, and Safety
  • Certified by the FDA as a Hemp/CBD product retailer, distributor, and/or manufacturer.
  • Extraction process & technology
  • Overall reputation as a brand or company for binging quality CBD to the market
  • Offers a third-party lab test/Certificate of Analysis (COA) to verify the quality. Also, make sure to call the number on the lab report and verify that the results of the COA are true. This last step is crucial as many brands and companies falsify and photoshop lab reports to squeeze by unnoticed.


Here are a few more very common questions we receive all the time that target the questions of whether or not CBD oil is safe as well as a couple of common concerns we hear (usually from parents).

    While CBD is psychoactive, it is NOT psychotropic. The shorter, more direct answer, NO.
    CBD is considered non-toxic even in large quantities. Thus, we offer another direct answer, NO.
    In order to answer this question with the utmost accuracy, we MUST break this down and answer this question by each type of CBD oil individually. Here we go!

      Not to our personal experience with the use of our full-spectrum CBD products. With that said, this product does contain minute quantities described as “trace amounts” of THC.  Therefore, it should go without saying that with trace amounts detectable, there is a trace amount of risk involved.  We always recommend CBD consumers to not risk losing their jobs regardless of our personal experience, it’s simply not worth the risk.


CBD & other cannabinoids, like THC, have shown promise in scientific studies to potentially help relieve symptoms from over fifty specific health conditions.

With that said, the benefits of CBD oil products are somewhat hard to list as the laws and regulations in the Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) industry are very strict with the general public about making medical claims. Thus, we cannot give you a direct list, but we can give you a wealth of information that will allow you to make your own judgment call on whether or not CBD can benefit your overall well-being.

An educational meme states the potential benefits of using CBD


There have been hundreds of CBD studies that have led to both scientists and medical professionals to openly report that CBD has shown positive results and could potentially serve as an aid for a multitude of health issues. The problem is, none of these positive results are deemed as medical facts yet because the medical society doesn’t have sufficient data and they require more tests before it can be considered as a treatment.

We 100% agree that more medical tests need to be completed, this is indeed our health we are talking about… but seriously, CBD is not in millions of households nationwide and according to, states are seeing a 20% drop in some opioid prescriptions.


View what one medical professional stated in 2015:

“The main finding from this case study is that CBD oil can be an effective compound to reduce anxiety and insomnia. A review of the literature suggests some benefits from the use of CBD because of its anxiolytic and sleep-inducing effects. Animal studies support the use of this potential relief and report that “CBD may block anxiety-induced [rapid eye movement] sleep alteration via its anxiolytic effect on the brain.” – source

Hundreds of studies have been conducted on Cannabinoids, the Endocannabinoid System, Cannabidiol (CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in order to try a figure out if this organic plant can actually change the world.

Here is a brief summary for some of the health conditions CBD oil has shown to potentially aid in studies:


The World Health Organization reports that depression is the single largest contribution to mental disability, while anxiety disorder is ranked sixth. Authors of a review from Neurotherapeutics found that CBD oil potentially helped to reduce the symptoms of anxiety and other similar disorders. The authors noted that current treatments for these disorders may lead to additional symptoms and side effects. No definitive evidence currently links CBD with adverse side effects. According to the review, CBD may help anxiety-related behaviors in people with conditions such as:

  • post-traumatic stress disorder
  • general anxiety disorder
  • panic disorder
  • social anxiety disorder
  • obsessive-compulsive disorder


The authors also included a note of warning regarding current prescription treatments: “Current treatments for these disorders can lead to additional symptoms and side effects, which can cause some people to stop taking them.”

It’s worth noting that CBD does not have these effects.


It is believed that CBD has the potential to act on the endocannabinoid system, and other brain signaling systems in ways that may be beneficial to patients with neurological disorders.

Sativex is an oral spray containing CBD and has been earmarked as a productive and safe way to reduce muscle spasticity in people with multiple sclerosis. Studies have shown that Sativex reduced spasms in 75 percent of 276 people with multiple sclerosis experiencing medication-resistant muscle spasticity.

According to a 2014 review, CBD possesses anti-seizure properties with a low risk of experiencing side effects common in people with epilepsy. Research also shows that CBD may also treat many complications linked to epilepsy, such as neurodegeneration, neuronal injury, and psychiatric diseases.

Another study published in Current Pharmaceutical Design revealed that CBD might produce effects similar to those of certain antipsychotic drugs. CBD may even provide a safe and effective treatment for schizophrenia patients. However, further research is necessary. There is still an ongoing study on the effects of CBD on various neuropsychiatric disorders.


CBD’s usefulness as an anti-inflammatory is a promising application. CBD may aid in the reduction of cancer-related symptoms and the side effects related to cancer medication. Authors of a review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology found potential evidence that CBD significantly helped to prevent the spread of cancer. The researchers noted that the compound tends to suppress the growth of cancer cells and promote their destruction.


Scientists have discovered that certain components of marijuana, including CBD, can potentially contribute to pain relief. The human body contains a specialized system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS) that regulates a variety of bodily functions including sleep, appetite, pain, and immune system response. The body produces endocannabinoids, neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system. Studies have shown that CBD may help reduce chronic pain by impacting endocannabinoid receptor activity, reducing inflammation and interacting with neurotransmitters.


Heart conditions such as stroke, metabolic syndrome, and heart attack are generally caused by high blood pressure and other factors. CBD has shown potential to lower blood pressure, reduce stress and help with the symptoms of anxiety. Preventative action with CBD has even shown potential to help provide benefits for the heart and circulatory system.


A pilot study published in Addictive Behaviors found that smokers who used inhalers containing CBD smoked fewer cigarettes than usual and had no further cravings for nicotine. A similar review, published in Neurotherapeutics found that CBD may be a promising alternative for people with opioid addiction disorders.

CBD is scientifically proven to help smokers quit. According to a study published in Addictive Behaviors, smokers who vaped in CBD smoked fewer cigarettes than usual and also had no further craving for nicotine.

Another study published in Neurotherapeutics revealed CBD could be an effective treatment for people who have opioid addiction disorders.

Researchers have also noted that CBD reduced some symptoms associated with other substance use disorders. These included mood-related symptoms like pain, insomnia, and anxiety.

Although more research is necessary to ascertain these observations, the findings suggest that CBD may help to prevent or reduce withdrawal symptoms across the board.


Acne is known to be caused by factors including genetics, bacteria, underlying inflammation, and overproduction of oily secretions by the sebaceous glands in the skin. A 2014 study published by the Journal of Clinical Investigation found that CBD oil may be able to help with acne due to its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to inhibit the production of sebum.


Diabetic mice that were administered with CBD showed reduced incidences of diabetic symptoms and inflammation by 56%. Research published in 2016 by Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation found that CBD may ease inflammation in the pancreas. A paper presented in the same year in Lisbon, Portugal, also suggested that CBD may reduce inflammation and protect against, or delay, the development of type 1 diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes arises from inflammation that occurs when the immune system attacks cells in the pancreas. In 2016, a paper presented in Lisbon, Portugal revealed that CBD might be the saving grace in fighting type 1 diabetes. By mitigating inflammation, CBD may delay the development of type 1 diabetes.

Furthermore, according to research published in 2016 by Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation, CBD could ease this kind inflammation which is present in the pancreas; could this be the first step to finding a CBD-based treatment for type-1 diabetes?


Initial research published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that CBD was potentially able to prevent the development of social recognition deficits in participants. CBD showed potential to help people in the early stages of Alzheimer’s retain the ability to recognize the faces of people that they knew for longer. This means patients could still be able to recognize the faces of people that they know.

Interestingly, this is the first evidence that CBD may slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.


CBD oil has shown the ability to potentially help reduce seizures in children with Dravet syndrome, a rare form of childhood epilepsy. After researching the safety and effectiveness of CBD oil for epilepsy, the FDA approved the use of CBD (Epidiolex) for two rare conditions characterized by epileptic seizures in 2018.

  1. Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), a condition that appears between the ages of 3 and 5 years and involves different kinds of seizures
  2. Dravet syndrome (DS), a rare genetic condition that appears in the first year of life and involves frequent, fever-related seizures

The types of seizures that characterize LGS or DS are difficult to control with medication. Findings suggested that CBD may also potentially help with many complications linked to epilepsy, such as neurodegeneration, neuronal injury, and psychiatric diseases.


CBD offers a better alternative to “over-the-counter” drugs and prescriptions for treating chronic pain or relieving stiffness.

Based on the information from a study published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, CBD significantly reduced chronic inflammation and pain in some mice and rats.

The researchers concluded that the non-psychotropic elements in CBD could provide a new form of treatment for chronic pain.

CBD may just be the right thing to help deal with and to fight cancer. According to a review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, there is evidence that suggests CBD might significantly help to prevent the spread of cancer. It was observed that CBD helps in suppressing the growth of cancer cells, and ultimately promotes their destruction.

CBD oil vs alcohol


It’s no longer news that CBD oil is taking over the cannabis industry. This development is attributed to the numerous health benefits that come with its use. The product is scientifically proven to heal certain medical conditions, and its popularity continues to grow, largely due to its anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, and pain relieving properties.

The market for CBD oil and other CBD products is becoming highly competitive as manufacturers continue to introduce new CBD oil products to consumers. Due to this massive adoption, Forbes estimates CBD’s market to generate approximately 2.1 billion dollars by 2020. It’s little wonder then why hemp growers are striving hard to become licensed and tap into this pot of wealth.

Unfortunately, many people believe alcoholic beverages and CBD products are in the same vein. This is a considerable misconception that should be clarified. Although the two are both legal substances, they differ in terms of both functionality and usage. This article will take aim at discussing, and clarifying, the differences between the two substances. Also, we will take a look at some of the reasons why there might be a big switch from alcohol to CBD consumption in the future.

The alcohol industry may not be smiling at the sudden spike in demand for CBD products. This is because a massive switch from alcoholic to CBD products has been observed. Some folks are starting to adopt CBD products instead of alcohol, while some are in the business of mixing the two. As a result, big alcohol might soon suffer a large blow to their bottom line.

Let’s start by considering what’s wrong with alcohol. So What Exactly is Wrong with Alcohol? Everything! Wondering why?

The alcohol industry may not be smiling at the sudden spike in demand for CBD products. This is because a massive switch from alcoholic to CBD products has been observed. Some folks are starting to adopt CBD products instead of alcohol, while some are in the business of mixing the two. As a result, big alcohol might soon suffer a large blow to their bottom line.

Let’s start by considering what’s wrong with alcohol. So What Exactly is Wrong with Alcohol? Everything! Wondering why?

Alcohol exposes consumers to several health risks. Regardless of whether a person takes it on a single occasion, or over time, it can take a severe toll on a person’s health by interfering with the brain, heart, liver, pancreas, and even the immune system.

Yes, consuming alcohol can weaken the immune system, thus exposing the body to various diseases. This trend is especially prevalent in chronic drinkers. This is why many end up suffering from health conditions such as tuberculosis or pneumonia.

There is no single positive effect that can be attributed to alcohol use. It might interest you to know that the amount of alcohol required to kill a person is easily accessible in one night. This means, even first-time drinkers stand a chance of dying. According to the National Health Institute in 2012, 5.9 percent of all global deaths are as a result of alcohol consumption. This means about 3.3 million deaths are credited to the use of alcohol.

Worse still, the danger isn’t necessarily over even if a person stops drinking. The danger that comes from alcohol withdrawal can, in some cases, be life-threatening. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimated a total of 88,000 deaths are caused by complications arising from alcohol withdrawal.

This is interesting because first, a person exposes themselves to health risks while consuming alcohol. Then, just when they have decided to become sober and break off the addiction, they are exposed to further health risks. So, as you can see, one can easily say that just about everything is wrong with alcohol.

To better understand the differences that exist between the two, let’s take a look at a practical juxtaposition, shall we?


As previously established, consuming alcohol can be detrimental to your health. Some of the effects that accompany the consumption of alcohol include dizziness, nausea & vomiting, mental impairment, and, of course, the typical hangover often experienced hours after use.

Here’s a comprehensive list of how alcohol affects different parts of the body, and some of the conditions it can cause.

Consuming alcohol can interfere with the functionality of the brain by disrupting communication pathways. This is why you see some drunken folks acting weird after drinking alcohol. Brain disruption triggers changes in mood, behavior, and movement coordination.

Consuming a lot of alcohol can be detrimental to heart health. Whether taken for the first time, or over a long period. Some heart problems such as high blood pressure, stroke, irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia), and more are often evident from alcohol use.

Pancreatitis, a critical inflammation of blood vessels, can arise as a result of ingesting alcohol over time. This is because alcohol releases toxins, which can cause this medical condition. Patients suffering from this ailment usually experience improper digestion.

By far the most prevalent health condition among alcohol consumers is liver disease. Alcohol deals mercilessly with the liver, especially in heavy drinkers. Some of the health problems encountered often include; alcoholic hepatitis, cirrhosis, and fibrosis of the liver, and more.

According to the National Cancer Institute’s Data in 2009, 3.9 percent of all cancer deaths in the US were alcohol-related. This means that about 19,500 people have died from some form of alcohol-related cancer. Some forms of cancer have been attributed to alcohol consumption, including; head and neck cancer, esophageal cancer, liver cancer, colorectal cancer, and breast cancer. People who consume at least three bottles of alcohol per day have a higher risk of developing these types of cancer.

Now let’s consider the negative side effects of CBD.

Based on scientific research, so far there are little or no adverse effects accredited to the use of CBD products. Some small scale studies have looked into the safety of CBD in adults. They did this by administering a wide range of doses to a set of adults. Results revealed that adults tolerated the differences in the treatment well.

Additionally, further research shows that there is no significant effect on the Central Nervous System (CNS) or mood of CBD consumers, even when they take in higher doses.

The most common side effect was tiredness. Also, some people reported diarrhea and slight changes in appetite or weight. These effects are quite minimal and can quickly be dealt with compared to the adverse side effects observed in alcohol consumption.

We’ve now examined some of the conditions alcohol and CBD consumers often encounter. CBD appears to be far better off in this regard. Could this be the reason why many people are advocating a switch from alcohol to CBD oil and other CBD products?

Now let’s take a look at some of the positive effects of CBD and alcohol.

Positive Effects of Hemp Extracted CBD OIL Vs. Alcohol

As stated earlier, CBD is scientifically proven to cure some medical conditions such as anxiety, chronic pain, seizures, nausea, and a host of other issues. For some, there is even a tendency to believe that the product has more healing properties that are as of yet undiscovered. There are little or no adverse effects from CBD consumption, and as such, several states in the US have already authorized CBD for both medical and recreational use.

Since the inception of the Farm Bill in 2018, hemp cultivation and processing became legalized across all 50 states, and as such, all hemp-derived products including CBD are legal on a federal level.

Unlike alcohol, CBD has no intoxicating effects on consumers. It is not associated with misbehavior like sexual assault and domestic violence, nor does it cause adverse health conditions like liver toxicity, cancer, and other health conditions that can be attributed to the use of alcohol.

Interestingly, CBD can be used to treat “Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome”. Studies on animals show that CBD protects against some health issues that can arise during alcohol withdrawal. This makes CBD ideal when used for recovering from alcohol addiction.

It is also proven that CBD can help reduce tobacco and cigarette addiction as well. This is undoubtedly a huge benefit, as it can be used to fight against both alcoholism, and nicotine addiction.

Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can be of immense benefit in suppressing the inflammatory pain caused by alcohol. It is also scientifically proven that CBD may help in mitigating damage to the liver from previous alcohol abuse.

For more of the benefits of CBD oil click here. Still not convinced CBD and alcohol are vastly different? Let’s consider the difference in usage.


CBD and alcohol are both distinct in their usage as well. As you must have observed in previous subtopics and explanations, CBD cannot be regarded as a recreational drug. In fact, it is not viewed as one by law enforcement agencies and medical practitioners because the psychotropic effects do not exist. It uses are quite medicinal, and as such, most CBD consumers regard themselves as medicinal users.

Alcohol, on the other hand, has no known medicinal advantages. One can, therefore, presume it’s purely a recreational drug. Of course, there is plenty of evidence to back this up, especially considering you typically find alcohol in recreational venues like bars, clubs, and entertainment events. Most people won’t deny that the primary reason for its consumption is for recreational purposes. This is why it is commonly consumed at social events because it makes people feel less inhibited and ultimately makes the gathering quite entertaining.

CBD Legality Vs. Alcohol Legality

There are common misconceptions about the legality of CBD in some areas, unlike alcohol which is legal almost everywhere across the globe.

At the Federal level, CBD is legal in all 50 states of the US, so long as it is manufactured from hemp, and it contains no more than 0.3% THC. However, some state laws regulate the use of CBD, while some others ban it altogether. Those states often regard marijuana as any substance containing CBD or THC. Since marijuana is generally still illegal in many states, save for medicinal purposes in some, the use of CBD in those states is unauthorized.

There is little to no misconception, however, as to the legality of alcohol across the country. Alcohol is legal in all the 50 states of the United States except for a few counties that have decided to ban the use of alcohol on certain days or have banned the sale of it entirely.

Finally, let’s consider the differences between the addictive qualities of both substances.


Is it possible to get addicted to CBD? To answer this question, one must understand how addiction works and what exactly triggers addiction.

Addiction is primarily caused by the release of excess dopamine into the brain’s pleasure center. Every addictive substance is known to release about two to ten times the naturally required amount of dopamine.

Fortunately, CBD does not release excess dopamine when consumed. Therefore, you cannot get addicted to CBD, no matter how much you consume. Instead, CBD aids the balancing of neurotransmitters in the brain. This means if there’s a high level of a neurotransmitter, CBD lowers it and vice versa.

Alcohol, on the other hand, releases quite a lot of dopamine into the brain’s reward center. Dopamine causes an alteration in brain chemicals, which enhances the feelings of depression. By increasing the dopamine levels in the brain, alcohol tricks consumers into thinking that it’s making them feel great. This is why consumers keep drinking and drinking to get more dopamine release, but at the same time altering other brain chemicals that enhance feelings of depression. Ultimately, consumers crave more thus becoming addicted.

So, what do you think? Would you consider settling for CBD instead of alcohol?

An educational meme quotes how plants are nature's curative by Rudolf Steiner


 You may have heard of debates concerning CBD and copaiba, usually based on which one is the better of the two. Copaiba is very popular among aromatherapy enthusiasts. Some people say that CBD is more potent and active than copaiba, while others believe the opposite.

In this article, I will be sharing with you the analysis of each product and how they work. It’s no longer news that the CBD and copaiba have been getting a lot of attention in recent years.

These two oils contain the same anti-inflammatory properties, which is why they are often lumped in with one another. However, it is assumed at the onset: copaiba is not a CBD oil replacement, even if it is marketed as such.
It has some beneficial properties, but in most articles, it’s not yet clear how those compare to the benefits of CBD oil. 

CBD and Copaiba: The Origin

It’s pertinent that we note that CBD is derived from either hemp or marijuana. You might have read somewhere that the CBD from marijuana is more active than CBD from hemp, but that isn’t necessarily true. On the chemical level, CBD is CBD, it has the same chemical structure whether it comes from one source or another. The main difference is the THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, content from marijuana. Sometimes for legal reasons or otherwise, a person may want the hemp version, which is full spectrum and non-psychotropic in nature. This won’t make the consumer feel ‘high’ because it contains less than 0.3 percent of THC.

There is also another type of CBD product that only contains only pure CBD. It’s called CBD isolate. Copaiba oil, is mainly extracted from the thick dark brown resin that slowly passes through the cracks of the copaifera tree.
The hype and popularity of this oil came about in recent times. Therefore, researchers have thus far only been able to conduct a few studies on it. The few studies that there are show that copaiba oil is said to contain antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities just like CBD does.


BCP oils are known for their strong smell. They also contain terpenes, that are responsible for the fragrances often found in essential oils. Even though copaiba oil is rich in some terpenes, copaiba oil only has a faint smell.
People who claim that copaiba is better than CBD oil only focus on Beta-caryophyllene (BCP), which is actually a part of both CBD oil and copaiba oil. Beta-caryophyllene is a terpene. Terpenes are aromatic organic compounds, in other words, they smell. BCP exists in clove, rosemary, melissa, and other essential oils. It is of interest to note that clove oil is often touted to help dental issues, and is often used by many mainstream dental practitioners to help with dental discomfort, including sore gums.

CBD and Copaiba: Risk?

CBD and copaiba are both relatively mild. However, there are some minor side effects that are generally experienced only by a small number of users. These include nausea and exhaustion. Still, it’s important to talk to your doctor if you plan to begin a CBD regiment. Be cautious when taking CBD with prescription medicine. CBD can hamper or halt CYP enzymes in the liver. Grapefruit also hampers these same enzymes.

Just be sure to consult your doctor or physician before using any CBD products. They still serve as a great therapeutic aid for arthritis, inflammation, mood disorders, and pain relief; CBD is also said to be effective against the growth of cancer cells.

CBD and Copaiba: Which is Cheaper?

If we compare the prices of these two products, copaiba seems cheaper than CBD in general, but cheaper doesn’t necessarily mean better. If a product doesn’t work, or requires a large amount to have any effect, it could end up being more expensive in the long run. So far, we haven’t seen many benefits from using copaiba oil, but this is at least partly due to a lack of proper research conducted on this product. On the other hand, many people report the benefit from very a small amount of CBD oil.

!Copaiba is not as Safe as CBD!

There is always some amount of risk associated with using any supplement, be it natural or otherwise. However, the side effects of CBD are so mild, or absent altogether that it’s generally regarded as safe to use.
There is no specific maximum dosage for CBD oil. Some people use way more than 1,000 mg of CBD oil per day. Copaiba, on the other hand, is a unique essential oil. While it is safe to ingest copaiba in low doses, typically ingesting essential oils is ill-advised. Unfortunately, it also has a robust taste, and it’s only recommended for consumption via capsules no more than three times a day.

However, ingesting too much copaiba oil can reportedly trigger nausea, vomiting, and gastrointestinal distress, an experience similar to food poisoning. In one animal study on rats with colitis, the researchers noted: “Copaiba oil decreased oxidative stress and inflammation but did not prevent intestinal damage in the colon of colitic rats.”

The alterations of plasma markers from hepatic damage caused by the oil seem to be associated with its destructive action on the liver. So, it appears that copaiba could, in fact, be damaging to the liver. However, this assumption still needs more research in clinical studies before an absolute conclusion can be drawn.

This could be the reason why copaiba is most often used for external applications, such as in skin creams and massage oils. It’s a reaction when taken internally tends to be very critical to the liver specifically.

It’s of the utmost importance that we note that these two products are potent and active, and should not be used without proper recommendation from a physician. However, at this point, it has more or less been revealed that cannabidiol has much broader applications across a wide range of health issues than copaiba. Research has shown, and still shows to this day that CBD benefits many conditions; from fighting cancer to reducing social anxiety and much more, CBD appears to be the clear winner here.

Plus, as mentioned, CBD is safe to use even in high doses. (That said, don’t take high CBD doses without the knowledge of your doctor if you are taking prescriptions for a severe or chronic health condition. It is possible CBD could cause a negative drug interaction that your doctor should be aware of.)
Nobody denies that the beta-caryophyllene found in copaiba is a potent anti-inflammatory agent, but its overall capabilities right now pale in comparison to those of CBD oil.

As a final note, when buying a CBD product, it is best to choose the full spectrum oil if you are suffering from inflammation. CBD isolate seems to offer less action in this area. CBD tends to work better with a comprehensive profile of cannabinoids and terpenes, which is what a full spectrum CBD oil product.

How To Make CBD Oil


Here are some simple ways you can make CBD oil without expensive equipment or a lot of know-how.

There are two common methods; the oil method and the alcohol method.

Below, you will find a detailed description of both!


The method extracting CBD oil that is actually known as the “Oil Method” is considered to be one of the safest ways of doing so. With this method, you simply need to use a carrier oil, such as coconut oil, or even olive oil can work. This method is gaining popularity due to its simplicity and safety. This method is also cleaner than some others and your end result will be free of additional unwanted residues.

Before getting started with this method, it’s important to understand that the quality of the starting materials you use (particularly the quality of the cannabis) will dictate the quality of the final product. This is why it is best to pick a high-quality strain that was sourced from a reputed retailer.

First, you will need to decarboxylate your cannabis. If you aren’t familiar with the process of decarboxylation. To get started, choose buds, leaves, and stems of a high-quality cannabis plant. Then, bake the buds and leaves at a temperature of approximately 220°F for about 90 minutes. This process heats the plant at a certain temperature for a specific period of time in order to activate the plant’s chemicals.

Next, use a mason jar to mix the ground-up cannabis with the carrier oil of your choice. Be sure to fully saturate the decarboxylated cannabis with the oil. You can adjust the quantity of oil depending on how potent you want the end result to be. Secure the jar lid.

Place the mason jar over the top of a pot similar to the way you would use a double boiler. Heat the water in the pot use a thermometer until reaches a temperature of at least 200 degrees.

Regularly check the pot to ensure the water is not evaporating too quickly if it’s necessary to add more, make sure you do so carefully to avoid splashing.

Turn off the stove after letting the oil mixture simmer for three hours. Then allow it to sit and cool for another three hours.

Once this is done, it is recommended to heat the oil mixture again for another three hours, then leave it to cool again overnight.

Your CBD oil will be ready to use the next morning, but first make sure you strain the mixture through cheesecloth and store it in a cool, dark and dry place.


The alcohol method, also known as the ethanol method, does not require special skills or advanced equipment, making it a great choice for beginners.

One of the pros of this CBD oil-extraction process is that it uses simple alcohol as the extracting agent. This process does not leave an unpleasant taste or odor as opposed to some other agents.

Start by placing the cannabis in a ceramic or glass bowl. Then cover it with alcohol and stir for approximately six minutes. Once this is done, use a wooden spoon to extract the resin produced as a result of the process.

Place a straining bag or sieve in the bowl in order to filter out the solvent. Squeeze out as much of the extract as possible. If you think that more oil extraction is possible you can repeat this process until you aren’t able to get any more.

In a double boiler, pour the extracted oil and heat it until bubbles start to form. The aim is to make the alcohol evaporate without raising the temperature too high. Wait until the oil simmers for about thirty minutes on a very low flame or setting. Once the alcohol evaporates completely, stir the mixture and turn off the flame.

Once cooled, transfer the concentrated extract to a storage bottle with a tight lid in a cool, dark, and dry place. It’s recommended to allow this to sit for at least two to three hours before use.


A CBD tincture is a dietary supplement that comes in liquid form and contains a powerful cannabidiol substance. Tinctures are made by soaking CBD-rich hemp blooms in high-proof grain liquor, then cooking them over minimal heat for several hours. Vinegar or glycerine can be utilized instead of alcohol, but liquor truly does produce a superior quality tincture.

It is a time-consuming process, but straightforward. Once the fluid is prepared, it’s commonly blended with a sweet tasting carrier oil like orange or peppermint. The reason for this being hemp on its own, it can be exceptionally pungent. The ultimate result ought to be reliable, with a high CBD proportion and no more than 0.3% THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).



  • 1/8 ounces of a high portion CBD strain
  • 2 ounces of strong alcohol preferably Everclear, Rum or Vodka
  • Two jars
  • 1-2 filters
  • Syringe/Eye dropper


The CBD tincture has various recipes, but the first recipe we are providing is called the Traditional Green Dragon Tincture Recipe

  • To convert the dormant THC-A and CBD-A to the active THC and CBD, you must decarboxylate the plant material. To do this, you must put your crude cannabis in a secured casserole dish and heat it at 245˚F for 90 minutes. The plant material will obscure and effortlessly crumble.
  • Place the crumbled (but not powdered) decarbed cannabis into one of your containers with the liquor and leave it for three hours.
  • When three hours are over, shake the fluid for 1-3 minutes, and after that, use the filter to drain the liquid into the clean jar. Wash out the first jar, and then drain the fluid all over again.
  • Store the tincture inside the jar, and put it in a cool, dim place for a week before making use of it. Ensure your jar is burped once a day amid the sitting week to let out the dissipated alcohol. To consume the tincture, make use of an eyedropper or syringe and administer a little amount of the fluid at a time.

The Modern Green Dragon Tincture Recipe

As the name implies, it’s a new recipe that has discovered to be based on developments in online recipes.

Decarboxylate the extract and if you’re making use of the flower, make its ground into an excellent consistency

Put your extract or flower into a jar and add the liquor/alcohol and mix

Shake vigorously for 3-4 minutes

Strain the content and store in a cool place.

Master Wu’s Green Dragon Tincture Recipe

Decarboxylate the extract, and if you’re making use of the flower, make sure its ground into an excellent consistency.

Put your extract or flower into a jar and add the liquor/alcohol and mix

This method uses heat in order to speed up the concentration and extraction process. Hence, simmer the jar in a water bath at 170 degrees F

Strain the content and store.


Any vegetable oil can be utilized as a base, but coconut oil has the most elevated amounts of fatty acid. This acid binds with the cannabinoids the best. It is additionally used in cooking, and can be put away as a hash solid for other uses like moisturisers, or to include in capsules for simple consumption.


  • Double evaporator or a large pot and a smaller pot will suffice
  • Cheesecloth
  • Jar or holder for storage


  • A cup of coconut oil
  • A cup of cannabis


  • Grind the bud, stems, or trim into small lots.
  • Add both cannabis and coconut oil to the two-fold boiler.
  • Heat for 6-8 hours blending once in a while and including small water in case required. (This will be the decarboxylation process).
  • Drain and strain your oil with the use of a cheesecloth after cooling.
  • Put it in a jar.
  • The tincture is expected to last for two months or longer from when it’s refrigerated.


In case you do not want to use alcohol, a CBD tincture using glycerine will work. Glycerin is a chemical that’s secure to consume and is utilized to assimilate and lock in the fluid. It contains a sweet flavor, so it is perfect for cannabis syrup as well.

This makes it an incredible component for extricating CBD cannabinoids from a cannabis plant. This sort of tincture can treat a few illnesses like seizures, uneasiness, and extreme pain.


  • 1-quart mason jar
  • Cheesecloth
  • Grinder or food processor
  • Brown or dull glass eye dropper


  • 1 ounce of CBD cannabis
  • 8-ounce bottle of glycerin


  • Grind the CBD bud to a powder by making use of a processor or grinder.
  • Place the weed and sufficient glycerin to nearly the top of the mason container.
  • Put the jar close to a light source (natural).
  • Let it sit for 4-5 weeks, shaking it once a day to discharge the cannabinoids.
  • Strain the blend by making use of a cheesecloth.
  • Pour the tincture in an eye dropper.
  • Keep it refrigerated for best results.
CBD Oil Recipes


What to Know

The DIY (Do It Yourself) course produces a full spectrum tincture, which means it contains everything extracted from your hemp flower, including traces of THC and other cannabinoids, like CBN and CBG. For most people, this is a good thing, because it means you’ll benefit from the entourage effect; these other cannabinoids and terpenes enhance the properties of CBD, while bringing their own benefits to the table.  Now, in this article, we’ll talk about the easiest ways of making CBD oil at home. 

In order to properly measure the CBD oil, you can use our edible potency calculator.  It is important to factor in the amount of CBD contained in your raw materials to start with.


  • Carrier Oil 
  • Hemp flower 
  • Baking sheet
  • Crockpot or Boiler
  • Grinder for herbs
  • Cheesecloth, coffee filter, or nut milk bag (to screen the oil)
  • Glass jar(s) with a sealable lid for storage


Oil Method

The’ Oil Method’ of extracting cannabidiol oil is considered one of the safest methods of doing so. You will need to utilize a carrier oil, for example coconut oil or olive oil.  Organic is best for most natural results. 

A step-by-step guide to making CBD oil through the oil method:

Know that the quality of cannabis used will determine the quality of your final product. We suggest picking a high-quality strain.

  1. Select high quality buds, stems, and leaves off the hemp plant. Place the buds through the process of decarboxylation. Bake the buds and leaves at 215°F for 90 minutes minutes. 
  2. In a jar, blend the ground-up hemp with the carrier oil of your choice (16 oz MCT oil, olive oil or coconut oil) and then soak it in the carrier oil.
  3. When saturation occurs, bring the oil-hemp mixture to a boil.  Tighten the mason jar lid to ensure no steam or water leaks into the oil.
  4. Place a towel at the bottom of the pan and the mason jar at the top and fill the pan with water until it reaches at least 200 degrees. (Make sure to use a thermometer)
  5. Consistently check the pan to confirm that the water has not evaporated. Switch off the stove after letting the oil simmer for three hours. Then allow it sit for another three hours.
  6. When this has finished, we recommended heating the oil again for another three hours, then again turn off the heat, and leave it over night for the following day. 
  7. Your CBD full spectrum oil is now ready! Proceed by straining it through a strainer or straining cloth and store your mixture in a cool, dark and dry place.
While there are quality CBD oils available to buy, we believe learning how to make cbd oil at home is manageable, affordable, and with minimal risk. Oil extraction uses low heat to gradually extract CBD indirectly minus any harsh fumes or flammability. It’s the safest and simplest way to supply yourself with homemade CBD oil.  Extracting your own CBD oil from hemp flower is relatively straightforward and is easy to use.


Thyme is a Mediterranean plant with dietary, medicinal, and ornamental uses. Partially like the palm tree, the flowers, leaves, and oil of thyme are incredibly beneficial and useful in the treatment of certain symptoms.

Perhaps you’re wondering how thyme is beneficial to the body. Here are some reasons you can trust thyme to be not only a spicy ingredient in your food, but also a health-friendly ingredient:

1. Seasoning: Growing up in a house where spicy food was often on the menu helps me appreciate the use of thyme and curry in cooking. Most notably in the cooking of meats, and fried or jollof rice. Most people would agree that the aroma from such food is satisfying to the nose. There’s a good reason almost all of the caterers I know use thyme in their food for that delicious, spicy smell and flavor.

2. Good Source of Vitamins: The usefulness of vitamins in the body cannot be overemphasized. Metabolism is a function of vitamins and thyme is a great source of vitamins, particularly vitamins A and C, to be precise.

3. Substitute for Salt: When substituting thyme for salt in food, one can help to reduce blood pressure and heart rate. CBD also has these calming properties naturally.

4. Skin Care: Immersion of thyme in alcohol yields a solution suitable for the treatment of the skin. This is especially effective as a treatment for acne. This is similar to how CBD tinctures are created and can be used as well.

In conclusion, it’s for these reasons, and the similarities between thyme and CBD that make thyme a natural choice for an addition to fine CBD oil. Added flavor and nutritional value, in addition to synergy with CBD’s natural healing properties make thyme a clear choice when selecting ingredients to boost CBD oil’s pre existing health benefits.
