OK Vape Nation here are some of the most asked questions that the public are asking about CBD. So here at SagaVape.com we decided to combine the questions that are being asked out there and try to provide you with the most accurate information available.

Q1 So What Is CBD

Cannabidiol—CBD—is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psycho activity of THC. 

Q2 What exactly does CBD do?

CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, Chronic Pain, Schizophrenia, Post  Traumatic Stress Disorder, Depression, Antibiotic- Resistant Infections, Epilepsy, and other neurological disordersCBD has demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti- Cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere. 

Q3 What conditions does CBD help with?

Research shows that CBD benefits include acting as an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, antiemetic, anxiolytic and antipsychotic agent, and is therefore a potential medicine for the treatment of neuroinflammation, epilepsy, oxidative injuryvomiting and nauseaanxiety and schizophrenia.

Q4 How long does CBD take to work?

The mode of consumption, dosage, and the desired effect is majorly what influences ‘how long does it take CBD to work. CBD produces effects a little different and the dosing amount varies from person to person.

You can never be sure of how long does it take CBD to work on you. The only way with which you can get to know it for sure is via experiment. Inform your physician before you start consuming CBD oil for any illness. 

Q5 Can CBD make you sleepy?

Sleepiness or drowsiness. This side effect of CBD oil should hardly come as a surprise, as high doses of CBD oil may be used as a sleep aid for those struggling with insomnia. At low doses, CBD oil causes relaxation and diminished pain or anxiety — both conditions that can contribute to insomnia.

Q6 Is CBD safe?

The biggest question is whether CBD oil is actually safe. Assuming the starting material was a quality product, CBD is completely safe and is considered to be non-toxic. Studies also concluded that daily doses of CBD (700mg) for 6 weeks did not induce any toxicity in patients.

Q7 Can you overdose on CBD?

Cannabidiol and other cannabinoids are known to be non-toxic, with no known fatal overdose levels ever reported. The previously mentioned study from 2011 indicated that chronic use and high doses up to 1,500 mg/day of CBD are reportedly well tolerated in humans.

Q8 What Is MCT?

MCT oil is the most efficient way to consume CBD oil so the cannabinoids interact with the body quickly and easily. Medium chain triglycerides, or MCTs, are medium-length fatty acid chains. 

MCT Oil is tasteless, unless flavoring is added in, and allows for easy consumption in several ways.

  • For the fastest delivery - Place the desired amount of tincture under your tongue for 90 seconds.
  • Other delivery option - Mix in the desired amount of CBD MCT oil with your favorite food or beverage. (Even add it into your salad dressing!) 

Cannabinoids break down and are stored in fat versus water (fat soluble), so are best consumed with fat to increase absorption. Take note that not all fats are good for this.

The liver sees the MCT oils as carbs and directly metabolizes the oil into energy. It does this without causing free-radicals, because the liver still processes it as a fat. This rapid metabolism also puts the cannabinoids to use right away.
