CBD Info

  1. What Is CBD?
    CBD is short for cannabidiol which is derived from the cannabis plant. In recent years CBD has been extensively researched. It is non-psychoactive, which means it does not cause intoxication, and provides many health benefits, including restful sleep, reduces nausea, improves relaxation, cartilage repair, healthy joint function, and others. For more information on the benefits of CBD, we recommend consulting your doctor, government resources and reading scientific publications.

    We care about our customers’ requirements, and we gladly cater to specific requests! Feel free to reach out to us by email or phone at Momma Dora Medicinals.

  2. Endocannabinoid System
    The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) comprises of a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors that are located throughout our central nervous system (CNS), peripheral nervous system (PNS), and our immune system. Our CNS is part of our brain and spinal cord. The peripheral nervous system acts as a communication network that links our central nervous system to the rest of our body.

    Our brains contain the largest concentration of cannabinoid receptors, but they also occur in other organs and other parts of the body, including tissues and glands. The existence of many ECS receptors throughout our body is one of the reasons why CBD is so effective and offers such a wide range of health benefits.
  3. Cannabidiol (CBD)
    Cannabidiol (or CBD) occurs naturally in trichomes, which are tiny structures found on the surfaces of mature cannabis plants. The cannabinoid molecule was discovered in 1940, and since then researchers have been studying the health benefits of CBD, which include improved sleep, relief from joint pain. It can also alleviate mild nausea, improve sports recovery, support the immune system, and reduce stress.

    Cannabidiol exists in two forms, CBD and CBDA, both of which have been researched in recent years to identify their health benefits and effects on the body. CBDA occurs in cannabis plants that are still growing. It is only when the plant is harvested, dried and heated that CBD is formed. CBDA has shown potential therapeutic benefits, however, most research has focused on CBD. CBDA is transformed into CBD by baking or heating cannabis. This process is known as decarboxylation (or activation). It removes the acid group, and the CBDA is transformed into CBD. All our products go through the decarboxylation process. Extensive research has shown that CBD binds more efficiently to the body’s cannabidiol receptors, and is therefore more effective than CBDA.

    CBD is an organic product that has little or no side effects. As such, CBD is a safer, natural alternative to synthetic products. Hemp has a history that dates back many thousands of years, and in this time there has never been a recorded fatality. CBD studies have shown that it is non-toxic, even with extreme doses. Nevertheless, you should consult your doctor if you intend to take more than 300mg within a 24 hour period.
  4. Cannabinoids
    Cannabinoids are molecules that occur naturally in hemp and cannabis. These molecules activate two receptors (CB1 and CB2) in the body’s central nervous system. CB1 receptors are found primarily in the brain, while CB2 receptors are found in the peripheral nervous system. CBD does not activate the brain’s CB1 receptors, and is therefore not strongly psychoactive.

    There are more than 110 known cannabinoids, each having unique receptor interactions, and each producing different results.

    We cannot substantiate CBD health claims. So, for further information on receptor activation and the effects on the body, we recommend research using reliable sources.

Knowledge Base

  1. CBD Dosage Guide

    In recent times, CBD has increasingly been regarded as an effective health supplement, however there is still some confusion regarding certain aspects, including dosage. With this in mind, this CBD dosage guide is intended to help our customers decide how to use CBD supplements. The information on our website and this knowledge base are not intended to be medical advice, and our products are not intended as a treatment or cure for any disease. Please consult a medical professional if you suspect you may have a serious illness.

  2. What is the ideal CBD dosage?

    Your ideal CBD dosage will depend on a number of factors. This includes your genetics, weight, metabolism, and other factors. Everyone has a unique endocannabinoid system. For some people, a small amount of CBD is enough to deliver the desired benefit. For others, a much higher dosage may be required in order to have the same effect. If you are taking CBD for the first time, start with a small dose of only 5-10mg. You can increase this later if you wish. The effect may not be immediate, so be patient. Wait for 2 hours before taking another dose.

  3. What is decarboxylation?

    Decarboxylation is a chemical reaction that activates the chemical compounds found in hemp and cannabis, which transforms CBDA into CBD by removing a carbon atom from the carbon chain.

    As the cannabis plant grows, it produces CBDA in tiny hair-like structures called trichomes. These structures develop on the surfaces of the plant, including the leaves, flowers and stalks.

    Decarboxylation occurs when CBDA is heated to 240°F. Although decarboxylation can occur below 240°F, it is far less efficient at these temperatures. When CBDA reaches 240°F the carbon atom is removed from the carbon chain, which causes CBDA to be transformed into CBA.

  4. Is CBD psychoactive?

    CBD is non-psychoactive, which means it has no intoxicating effects. You will not get high if you consume CBD.

    CBD works in a part of our nervous system known as the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS has two main types of CBD receptors:
    CB1 receptors, which are located primarily in the brain and spinal cord, and to a lesser extent in other organs and tissues.
    CB2 receptors, which occur primarily in the peripheral nervous system. They also occur throughout our gastrointestinal and immune systems.

    CB1 receptors, which occur primarily in the brain, are responsible for the intoxicating effects of CBD. CB2 receptors, which are located in other parts of the body, are responsible for CBD’s other effects.

    For example, THC binds with the CB1 receptors in the brain, and for this reason has an intoxicating effect. THC also binds with CB2 receptors that occur in other parts of our body, which results in a range of benefits for many people.

    CBD only binds to CB2 receptors (unlike THC) and therefore has almost no effect on your brain. CBD does not alter perception and will not get you high.

  5. What is the difference between hemp oil and CBD products?

    If you are new to CBD or a first-time buyer, you may be unsure of which product to choose. There are many online stores that sell hundreds of CBD products. It can be difficult for first-time buyers to consider all the products available. Also, be aware that large retailers such as Target and Amazon sell hemp oil, which should not be confused with CBD oil.

    Hemp oil (also called hemp seed oil), is extracted by pressing the seeds of the hemp plant. Hemp oil does not have the benefits of CBD products because hemp seeds do not contain any CBD.

    Instead, hemp seed oil contains fatty acids and omega-3s. The Hemp Industries Association has made a clear distinction between hemp oil and CBD extracts by saying that “CBD is not a product or component of hemp seeds, and labeling to that effect is misleading and motivated by the desire to take advantage of the legal gray area of CBD under federal law. Hemp seed oil does not contain any significant quantity of CBD.”

  6. How can I find a good supplier of CBD oil?

    There are a number of things to consider before deciding where to buy CBD oil. For example, what ingredients does the supplier use? What is the price per milligram of CBD? Are third-party test results available for all products? Do they disclose the source of their hemp?
    Online forums are a good source of information and a place where CBD buyers can share their experiences and product reviews. Although there are some low-quality CBD products available, there are also a number of reputable companies that offer high-quality CBD products and reliable service. The best approach is to know what's in the product and where it comes from. This will save you time and money.

FAQ

  1. What is the difference between CBD and THC?

    CBD and THC are both cannabinoids and have a similar chemical composition, however, their atoms are arranged differently. THC has a molecular structure that interacts perfectly with CB1 receptors located in the brain, and it is this connection that provides the intoxicating effect. CBD, on the other hand, does not connect well with CB1 receptors, but connects with CB2 receptors (located in other organs), which produces an entirely different effect.
