FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are natural elements found in cannabis plants. There are hundreds of cannabinoids, but the active and most researched are CBD, CBC, CBN, THC, THCA.
What is medical cannabis?
Medical cannabis is the administration of cannabis-infused medicines and cannabis-derived compounds under the supervision of medical professionals.
CBD and THC
These are two of the most actively researched cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant. CBD is non-psychoactive and has therapeutic properties, whereas THC causes psychoactive effects on users. All compounds found in cannabis plants work together synergistically to accelerate the medicinal effects.
What is the extraction process?
We use full-spectrum formulations for the goodness of whole-plant cannabinoids, i.e. CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC, THCA, and others.
Full-spectrum vs broad spectrum
Full-spectrum oil (FSO) contains higher levels of different active cannabinoids. When FSO goes through the further process for separating THC, the oil becomes a broad spectrum with only trace amounts of THC more of CBD. The separation process also removes other essential cannabinoids leaving them in trace amounts.
Psychoactive compounds in cannabis are responsible for euphoric effects on users. A full-spectrum oil may induce an entourage effect on users and giving an uplifting feeling.
Mechanism of action of Endocannabinoid system (ECS)
The ECS involves three core components: endocannabinoids, receptors, and enzymes (ECS). It regulates and balances various processes in the body like inter-cellular communication, immunity response, memory, metabolism and appetite. Phyto-cannabinoids in our body bind to receptors and signal specific activities via neurotransmitters (CB1 and CB2 ). Once the purpose is complete, the endocannabinoid is broken down by enzymes. On consuming the naturally occurring cannabinoids (like CBD and THC), the (ECS) receptors regulate overall body functions.
Cannabis and digestion. Is it helpful in Irritable Bowel Syndrom (IBS)?
Intestinal permeability can be a significant reason behind common digestive problems like bloating, gas, cramps and food sensitivities. The ECS is responsible for promoting the whole digestion process through central and peripheral mechanisms. Endocannabinoid receptors and their endogenous ligands are involved in modulating food intake and treating eating disorders and IBS. CBD is good for our digestive health as it manages the level of catabolic hormones like cortisol and prevents intestinal permeability, and stimulates appetite
What is an ideal dose?
Every human body is different and respond accordingly to varying doses. It is always recommended to start with a low dose and let the body adapt. Our medical practitioners provide dosage information in mg for treating different ailments like sleep, pain, digestion, appetite.
What is the best way to consume Cannabis oil?
For the fastest absorption, it is recommended to take drops sublingually and wait a few seconds before swallowing. However, you can also mix and consume it with your favourite dish or beverage too.
Cannabis vs cannabis extracts
Raw cannabis is not processed in any way for extracting cannabinoids. It is primarily used in grounded and powdered forms. Whereas In preparing cannabis extracts, the cannabis (leaves) go through solvent extraction or CO2 extraction process mostly, where cannabinoids like CBD, CBN THC and others are separated from the raw plant material.
Side effects and drug interactions
Common side effects of consuming cannabis include dry throat/mouth; when combined with other medication, it may cause drowsiness. We recommend consulting your doctors when combining with other medicines.
What should be the ideal duration of the CBD oil course?
CBD oil is a 100% organic (ayurvedic) formulation. You can expect to feel the effects from the first dose and notice significant differences in your conditions within weeks. It’s recommended to complete the course of medication for 45-60 days for the body to achieve a balanced state.
What is the ratio of CBD: THC
The natural ratio in full-spectrum oil is 1:1.
Will this oil get me high?
Our products are for medicinal purposes only. Consumption in excessive doses can induce euphoric effects.
