CBD oils have many effects and can have a more or less marked influence, depending on the dosage chosen and the sensitivity of the consumer.
CBD, cannabidiol and its uses
Cannabidiol or CBD is a substance found naturally in the Cannabis Sativa L plant alongside many other cannabinoids, the best known of which is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. The CBD contained in the oils we offer is extracted from certain varieties of hemp, initially used in the field of industry.

CBD, unlike THC, has no psychotropic effects. Thanks to its particular properties, CBD was initially studied in the framework of research on epilepsy, it was subsequently analyzed in other studies, but the results seem to be still too few to confirm the full extent of its effects. Via research on CBD and consumer feedback, it seems that CBD has calming powers and can have analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBD oils effects
CBD oil is a blend of different ingredients that provide consumers with results due to the cannabinoids and terpenes present, but also effects due to the oil used for the mixture.
The entourage effect
Many CBD oils are composed of cannabidiol but also other cannabinoids naturally present in hemp (CBC, CBN, CBG …) as well as terpenes which participate in the olfactory power of the plant.
Studies and research on cannabinoids have shown synergy between cannabinoids and terpenes contained in the plant; this is called the entourage effect. Mixed in the same product, these different elements increase the effects compared to using one of the substances alone.
This oil contains a large share of essential fatty acids; it is very rich in omega 3 and 6, which is beneficial for the health of hair, nails and skin.
The side effects of CBD oil
Research on CBD has so far not brought to light any serious negative effects for consumers. However, it is essential to be aware of the possible minor annoyances that can be encountered when consuming CBD products such as oils.
Some people may experience a decrease in saliva production after consuming CBD oils. A study carried out in 2006 seems to highlight the inaction of the creation of saliva when the endocannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 are activated after taking CBD, which would, therefore, cause this feeling of dry mouth.
Drowsiness can occur mainly after consuming too much CBD or taking too high a dosage. Some people are more sensitive to it than others, so it is essential to remain vigilant when testing the products for the first time or when increasing the dosage. If you notice increased drowsiness after consuming CBD, we invite you to reduce the dose taken and to avoid performing tasks requiring increased alertness.
Consumers with low blood pressure should consult their doctor before taking CBD, especially in high doses; CBD taken in high doses can affect blood pressure by slightly lowering it.
CBD can have interactions with certain drugs, mainly those that act on the liver heavily. CBD could cause the liver to break down these drugs. CBD can also affect the effects of some sedative drugs; if in doubt we invite you to consult your doctor before taking CBD.
Our advice when using CBD oil
Each person has their specificities and does not react in the same way to a molecule as another person. It is important to always start by taking low doses of CBD to determine possible side effects.
If you have a proven health problem or are taking medication, we encourage you to consult your doctor before taking any form of CBD. We also invite you to do the same if you are pregnant or breastfeeding your child.
Finally, if the side effects are not severe, however, if you want to continue taking CBD, you can ideally try a reliable supplier such as JustBob, the European leader for online CBD purchase, and try different oils and high-quality CBD flowers.
