Hemp varieties including the Cannabis Satvia plant contain around 545 phytocompounds of which 113 are considered cannabinoids, including THC and CBD.
Cannabinoids support the endocannabinoid system by interacting with cannabinoid receptors (mainly CB1 and CB2), which play an important role in the central nervous system and immune system.
Your body creates its own endocannabinoids which interact with these receptors. Phytocannabinoids (or just cannabinoids) are similar chemical compounds which are derived from plants. These cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) regulating various hormones throughout the body in order to maintain balance.
There are at least 12 sites of action in the brain, with receptors responsible for memory, cognition, sleep, reward pathways and more. CBD indirectly acts on the endocannabinoid system and may elicit therapeutic effects by activating multiple pathways at once.
There is no black and white answer, the right amount differs from person to person based on individual needs. The amount of CBD you take may vary day to day depending on how you feel. We all know that CBD has a significant effect on the endocannabinoid system in helping support and regulate our bodily functions and choose to incorporate CBD into our daily routine to help make sure it is functioning most effectively.
The effects of CBD are subtle and the first time you take CBD you may not feel anything right away. Higher dosages may make you feel a more calming, relaxed sensation which is more immediate when taken orally through CBD oil. All our products come with recommended dosages.
One piece of advice we found useful when starting to take CBD ourselves was “start low and go slow”. It is easier to control dosage using the pipette included in CBD oil drops, you can gradually step up your dosage by increasing the amount of drops you ingest at your own pace upto the stated dosage. Increases should be made every 2-4 days until you achieve the desired effect.
Too little will mean that you get minimal results and too high of a serving might cause the opposite of what you may be trying to achieve. So you may need to adjust how much CBD you take over time. It may take time to perfect your routine but we feel that the benefits are worth it for everyone, we could all use a little more balance in our bodies, to help us recover better, so that we can start to live better.
CBD isolate is purely CBD extracted from the plant and nothing else. CBD accounts for roughly 40% of the extraction, meaning that 60% of the plants cannabinoids are lost.
Broad spectrum has 0% THC content meaning that it contains many cannabinoids but does not include any THC derivatives.
Full spectrum is the gold standard we highly recommend and choose to supply our customers. A full spectrum extraction is a full extraction which keeps all of the plants natural terpenes, flavonoids and vitamins. Full spectrum extraction keeps the plants in its most natural state, as nature intended. Cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and other compounds are all delivered to the body at once, meaning that they are able to work synergistically to create a greater combined effect, meaning that you can benefit from the full effect of the plant and feel its effects to the fullest.
The effects of CBD are experienced for between 4-6 hours, with larger servings lasting longer. The method which you use to ingest CBD alters the length of time the CBD stays in your system. For example if you ingest capsules or edibles, these are digested and processed by the liver before entering the bloodstream which takes longer than the more immediate effect when CBD drops are taken under the tongue.
Our CBD products are formulated for human consumption. So although you may want to give your cat, dog, or parrot CBD we do not recommend it, as although cannabinoids may be ‘safe’ for pets any CBD products supplied by Revivo are formulated for you and not your pets and are not designated as pet safe.
It depends on the method of delivery. CBD oil drops and tinctures are more immediate (about 10-30 mins for onset). For ingestibles including pills and capsules it will take longer as it is absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract, meaning it can take upto an hour to take effect and will stay in the system for a lot longer.
Absorption and reaction to CBD varies from person to person based upon your unique metabolism, biochemistry, genetics and lifestyle. This is why it is so important to find a high quality, reputable product.
Terpenes are essential plant oils which carry a variety of health benefits. Terpenes are commonly used in aromatherapy for their therapeutic properties. The hemp plant contains around 200 of these terpenes. All our CBD oils are from organically harvested hemp grown in the EU and extracted using the full spectrum method, meaning that these beautiful terpenes are stored up in every bottle.
CBD does not directly affect appetite like THC does and by UK regulation the level of THC is below 0.02% which is not sufficient to stimulate appetite. Some people may note that they felt an increased appetite but there is no correlation.
Yes. CBD oil is legal in the UK if it has a THC content of below 0.02% with THC being a controlled substance under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. It must also be harvested from an EU approved industrial-grade hemp strain. United States and most countries within the EU. All of our CBD products are independently lab tested to ensure that you are getting a pure product with less than 0.02% THC content which complies with UK regulations. It’s also just enough to give you the therapeutic benefits without giving you a ‘high’. We source only the finest premium industrial-grade hemp which has been approved by the EU
CBD is a natural dietary supplement and although some people may feel a calming effect fairly soon after taking it others may need to persist a little longer. If you have incorporated CBD into your daily routine that’s great but please understand that it will take time to experience the full benefits, especially if you are taking it for everyday stress relief or for recovery, sleep or pain relief.
Understanding what is happening on a cellular level may help. Cannabinoids interact with cannabinoid receptors (mainly CB1 and CB2), which play an important role in the central nervous system in reducing the production of enzymes that break down your body’s own naturally occurring cannabinoids, helping to regulate various hormones within the body, facilitating a more balanced endocannabinoid system, (ECS).
Smoking is a reinforced habit. Ritualistically leaving your desk and going outside and putting a cigarette to your lips is one such habit which keeps people smoking. CBD Oil Vapes may be able to ease those wishing to quit smoking out of their nicotine addiction without having to abandon the physical habit of smoking. This means you will be much more likely to quit.
