In this product guide we want to help you to choose which CBD product you can use best.
Important to know here is that CBD is classified as a food supplement. Under EU law, producers and sellers are not allowed to provide information on health aspects of these products.
The legislation defines it as follows: “food supplements should not be labeled, presented or promoted as if they are capable of preventing, treating or curing a disease.” Nor should reference be made to websites where such information can be found.
The purpose of the law is to protect consumers against potential health risks and to ensure that food supplements are not accompanied by misleading information.
This is understandable in itself, because that way consumers are protected against dubious products. However, the disadvantage is that products such as CBD, of which very many people have already had the positive effects, are also covered by these regulations.
We therefore can not advise you in this product guide which oil can best be used in which specific situation. Nor should we refer to, for example, scientific studies that substantiate this. This is of course very unfortunate, but fortunately a lot of information is available on the internet. We therefore advise you to look for the term cbd in combination with the term you want information about.
Despite the restrictions imposed, we can inform you about other important aspects of CBD to help simplify your choice.
Types of CBD
CBD is available in various strengths, varying from 1% to more than 20%. The most sold and used strength is the 5%. You can use a higher percentage if the 5% does not offer the desired effect. Note: if you do not experience any effect of the 5%, then the 10% probably will not do either. CBD is a natural product and the effects can vary greatly from person to person.
CBD products can be divided into 3 groups:
- Universal CBD; it contains all the original substances of the hemp plant and is therefore the most versatile. The taste is bitter.
- Pure CBD; all other original substances (such as terpenes, flavoids and other cannabinoids, such as CBN and CBG) are removed, so that only CBD remains. The taste is considerably softer and more pleasant than universal CBD.
- Extra CBDa; this variant contains an increased amount of CBDa, which is more powerful in specific situations than universal and pure CBD. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to explain this further. That is why we advise you to search the internet with the terms cbda and properties.
If you are starting with CBD for the first time and are not sure which product to take, we advise you to start with the 5% CBD oil RAW from Medihemp. This product is very powerful and versatile.
