Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is derived from the cannabis plant. It has many therapeutic benefits and can help alleviate symptoms of conditions such as anxiety, epilepsy and the side effects of cancer chemotherapy.
Many CBD products contain only traces of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), so you won’t feel like you’re on psychotropic drugs. THC is the main psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis.
While there are many Swiss CBD oils on the market today, it is important to know that they are not all equal. You want a high-quality cannabidiol oil, but you don’t know how to tell the good products from the bad. There are hundreds of different CBD oil options. Beneath the surface, however, CBD oil products vary widely in terms of quality, composition, and the type of cannabidiol they contain. Thus, it is important to learn the ropes before making your final decision.
Do all CBD oils do exactly what they claim ? And how can you tell the difference between a legitimate CBD oil and an inauthentic alternative ? Many factors come into play when deciding which cannabidiol oil is best for you. These factors, along with deceptive marketing, can make it very difficult to pull the trigger and make a purchase.
That is why we think everyone could benefit from a general guide to the ins and outs of wise CBD oil.
What is CBD ?
Before we explore what you should look for in a Swiss CBD product, let’s first understand what cannabidiol is and what it has to offer. CBD stands for cannabidiol, a natural compound extracted from hemp plants. Cannabidiol is the most abundant cannabinoid in hemp and the second most well-known cannabinoid in cannabis plants. CBD oil is first extracted from hemp plants by one of three methods. After being isolated from the plant, cannabidiol is tested for purity and potency. CBD is then added to carrier oils and other ingredients to create different cannabidiol oils and products. CBD oil is a popular wellness supplement that offers various health benefits. The benefits of cannabidiol include relief from minor discomforts and support for a positive mental state and overall health.
Please note that CBD oil is not the same as hemp oil. Cannabidiol oil comes from the flower, bud, stems and leaves of the cannabis plant. Hemp oil comes from hemp seeds and does not contain CBD.
There are three main types of cannabidiol oil on the market to choose from. However, deciding which one is right for you without understanding the different types can make it confusing.
What type of Cannabidiol oil is right for me ?
There are three types of CBD oil on the market, namely isolates, full spectrum oils and broad spectrum oils. Full spectrum oils are the most effective because they contain the most cannabinoids working together. In addition, they contain traces of THC, which can enhance the effectiveness of cannabidiol. Full-spectrum products also contain protein, fatty acids, chlorophyll, fiber, flavonoids and terpenes. We’ll come back later with a detailed description of their respective differences.
Swiss CBD oil can come from several different sources, but all of them come from the Cannabis Sativa plant. Two of the most common sources of cannabidiol oil are the flowers and leaves of hemp and marijuana. On a molecular level, the extraction of CBD oils from these two different plants is essentially identical. However, from a production standpoint, hemp is often “leaner” and we use it for fiber and seeds. Marijuana on the other hand, is what we most often associate with cannabis, a lush plant with foliage and flowers. But visually, they can sometimes look alike, and legally, the definition is based on THC content. So remember to get cannabidiol oil first, not hemp oil !
Factors to consider when buying Cannabidiol oil
The CBD industry is becoming more regulated every year, but there is still a long way to go. As a result, it is worth noting that the quality and purity of cannabidiol oils – and therefore their effectiveness – can vary greatly from product to product. So how do you decide which product to buy?
When it comes to trying CBD oils for the first time, your doctor is your best friend. Regardless of why you’re taking it, CBD oil can cross-interact with other medications you’re not familiar with. Therefore, a visit to your doctor is a must before starting a regular cannabidiol regimen. After all, it’s his or her job to answer your questions when your health is at stake.
Appropriate serving sizes of Swiss CBD vary greatly depending on individual factors such as : intended use, body weight, metabolism, body chemistry. Doses should be taken at least 4-6 hours apart. You can take cannabidiol at any time of the day. If you use it to improve your sleep, take it before bed.
But what exactly can happen when CBD and another drug mix in your body? In short, cannabidiol is broken down by the same family of enzymes as most prescription drugs. This forces the substances to compete and interrupts their metabolism. This could lead to notable complications if you introduce it into your routine without a doctor’s advice.
If you want to know more about CBD dosage, you can find the following article here : CBD DOSAGE: HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU TAKE?
What is the best concentration for my needs ?
Swiss CBD oil products come in a range of concentrations, which means that some contain higher doses of cannabidiol than others. In short, the higher the concentration, the more powerful the effect. And the effects of Cannabidiol are real on the body, in the management of pain for example (rheumatism, chronic and neuropathic pain)…
All reputable cannabidiol oils display this information on the package. Some brands list the amount of CBD in milligrams, such as 250 mg, while others list the percentage, such as 40% CBD. In all cases, the higher the number, the more potent the concentration. At 1807 Blends, we always indicate the concentration of the product in percentage on the bottle for an optimal readability of the product.
If you are new to CBD oils, we recommend starting with a low to moderate concentration. Then you can gradually increase the doses as needed. No matter how you use cannabidiol, it is easier to increase your dose than to decrease it after the fact. Watch how it affects your body, and you’ll know more on how to adjust your dose in the future.
Prefer full-spectrum Swiss CBD
Until recently, CBD isolate was the industry standard. However, full-spectrum oils offered a better host of potential benefits. This is because cannabis compounds are thought to build upon each other in a theorized dynamic known as the entourage effect. According to this idea, cannabinoids and terpenes can stimulate or mediate each other’s effects when they interact in the body.
Given the above, unless you are opposed to other compounds or only need cannabidiol for another reason, we recommend full spectrum CBD oils to new users.
Swiss CBD Isolate
CBD isolate products contain only cannabidiol and no other cannabinoids or plant compounds. Since CBD isolate does not contain other compounds, which can enhance the effectiveness of CBD, cannabidiol isolate is not ideal when other products are available.
Full spectrum Swiss CBD
Full spectrum CBD products, also known as whole plant extracts, are the least processed and filtered cannabidiol products. Full-spectrum cannabidiol contains the fullest possible profile of compounds from the hemp plant. That means it contains the plant’s natural terpenes, flavonoids and cannabinoids. These cannabinoids include small amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBN (cannabinol), CBG (cannabigerol) and other substances.
Full-spectrum hemp CBD contains no more than 0.2 percent THC, which is insufficient to cause psychoactive effects. Full-spectrum cannabidiol is considered the most effective and beneficial. The other compounds indeed work together in a phenomenon called the “entourage effect.” If you are not concerned about THC, choose a full spectrum CBD product to get the most out of your cannabidiol product.
Broad spectrum Swiss CBD
Broad spectrum CBD products are almost identical to full spectrum cannabidiol without the THC. The entourage effect still occurs with broad spectrum cannabidiol. Nevertheless, it won’t have the exact same effect as full spectrum CBD due to the absence of THC. Broad spectrum cannabidiol is ideal for those who are concerned about THC.
Which carrier oil should I choose?
Plant-derived carrier oils – also known as base oils – are used to help transport the active components of CBD oil into the body. Consider the different types of carrier oils that popular manufacturers use. Two of the most common are hemp oil, but there are many others, including MCT oil, grapeseed oil, sunflower oil and avocado oil. At 1807 Blends, we use 100% Swiss-made rapeseed oil.
Hemp oil : vegetable oils as carriers
This oil is obtained by pressing hemp seeds to release their natural oil. Hemp seeds are considered a superfood and offer a full range of nutritional benefits.
As a carrier oil, hemp seed oil adds a distinctive taste to your CBD oil that some may not like, but others will deeply appreciate. The fact that it comes from the same plant as the cannabinoids and terpenes it contains makes hemp seed oil suitable. It should be noted, however, that some companies try to sell hemp seed oil as cannabidiol oil, which is simply not true.
MCT oils as carriers : easier Swiss CBD absorption by the body
Vegetable oils are great, but an interesting alternative has started to emerge in recent years. Specifically, CBD oil manufacturers have discovered that MCT (medium chain triglyceride) oil is one of the most effective ways to deliver cannabinoids into your system.
MCTs are a type of fat made up of shorter molecules than most fats we enjoy (long chain triglycerides [LCTs]). This makes it much easier for our bodies to quickly absorb MCTs into our bloodstream. It also turns out that cannabidiol and other cannabinoids latch on directly to these molecules when they enter the system together. In turn, you’ll benefit more from CBD when it is carried through your body by MCT oil.
At 1807 Blends, we mainly use 100% Swiss rapeseed oil and MCT coconut oil as carrier oils. If you want to buy our CBD, check out our shop.
Dietary restrictions : suitable Swiss Cannabidiol oils
Some cannabidiol products may contain ingredients that are not suitable for people with dietary restrictions.
Most CBD oils come from vegetable oils, natural flavors and vegan ingredients. Vegans should avoid cannabidiol gummies and capsules, as some may contain gelatin. Some CBD beauty and skin products may also contain animal products such as lanolin, animal fats and tallow. So be certain to check the ingredients. All 1807 Blends cannabidiol oils are certified vegan and are not tested on animals.
For those allergic to gluten
Swiss cannabidiol is naturally gluten-free, but other ingredients in CBD products and cannabidiol processing can contaminate the product with gluten. Labels usually do not explicitly state that they are gluten-free. You can then read them to determine if there was an addition of gluten-containing ingredients. Local, organically grown hemp and CBD products made by the cannabidiol company itself are generally not contaminated with gluten-containing ingredients.
CBD 1807 Blends oil products are free of gluten and other allergens (wheat, rye, barley).
For other allergies
It is possible that some people may be allergic to cannabis derivatives or other ingredients in the CBD product. If you have an allergic reaction to a cannabidiol product, stop taking it and seek medical attention if the reaction is severe.
At 1807 Blends our oils are certified to be free of common allergens such as shellfish, eggs, fish, peanuts, dairy, tree nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts), soy and sulfites.
What to look for when buying Cannabidiol : Buy high quality Swiss CBD
Not all CBD products are the same and the quality of cannabidiol varies from company to company. Buying high quality CBD ensures that you get what you pay for and what is actually stated on the label. Some cannabidiol manufacturers do not test their products in a lab, which means the product label is not accurate. Poor quality or fake CBD may contain harmful chemicals, more than the legal limit of THC and less cannabidiol than the product label indicates. By purchasing real, high-quality CBD oil, you’re not putting your health at risk or wasting your money. To learn more, check out our blog on how to tell real CBD from fake CBD.
At 1807 Blends, the supercritical CO2 extraction process ensures excellent quality oils with an ISO 9001 certificate (supplier with strict quality controls and a continuous improvement process).
What is the condition you wish to treat with Swiss CBD and adaptation to your lifestyle
The condition you wish to treat
It is essential to consider the purpose of CBD use. Since cannabidiol could treat a wide range of medical ailments and conditions, and studies showed therapeutic benefits of CBD for specific conditions, a person may turn to it to treat a particular health problem.
However, cannabidiol is not a panacea. Caution is important as we need additional longitudinal research to obtain substantial evidence to validate study results.
Far-reaching medical claims point to CBD’s success in treating a variety of conditions such as anxiety, acne, insomnia, addiction, inflammation and Parkinson’s disease.
In general, the best method of using cannabidiol varies depending on the type of relief you are seeking. CBD oils are administered typically sublingually (under the tongue) and are absorbed directly into the bloodstream. The effects of this method are usually felt in just a few minutes, making tinctures a great option for stress and anxiety.
Ultimately, each format will affect you a little differently – for example, some work faster than others. If you understand why you want to use cannabidiol, finding the right product will be much easier.
A product that fits your lifestyle
One of the most important things to consider when purchasing cannabidiol products is how easy it is to incorporate them into your daily routine. Each method of Swiss CBD administration offers a unique set of benefits and results. Some options are quick and easy to take. They are ideal for people on the go. If you use CBD at home every morning or every night before bed, then oils are the ideal choice because you can easily keep the bottle in a medicine cabinet or bedside drawer. They are also easily transportable. If you have the express need for them anywhere you want to take them, the concentrated format of the oils in a small bottle is perfect for you.
What other ingredients are in Swiss cannabidiol oil ?
It is very common to see other ingredients in CBD oil, such as hemp, hemp oil or hemp extract. These ingredients are necessary to contain the cannabidiol and serve as a base. Sometimes you may also find other ingredients to help with flavor, consistency, or enhanced health benefits. If you are looking for a particular flavor, you need to look for the essential oil you want.
Products made from organic cannabis
While you can find all-natural products, others may be highly processed. Look for products made from organic cannabis grown in Europe. Cannabis grown in Switzerland is subject to strict agricultural regulations. If the plant is grown organically, that means you won’t be using pesticides or other toxic chemicals.
Ingredients list of Swiss CBD oils
The first place you will want to look when you have found a potentially high-quality CBD tincture online is the ingredients list. This simple list of substances in cannabidiol oil doesn’t tell you everything you need to know about what is in a CBD product. But taking a look at the ingredients is a great first step.
To make a Swiss cannabidiol oil, all you need is a CBD extract and a carrier oil. Preservatives are not necessary, and any additional ingredients should add specific benefits to the tincture. If you see a bunch of hard-to-pronounce chemical names in the ingredient list of a cannabidiol oil product you are considering, it is time to move on to another option.
Similarly, carrier oils vary greatly in terms of effectiveness and safety. The MCT oil we use at 1807 Blends, which comes from coconut, is arguably just as safe and effective as hemp oil. So tinctures containing this carrier can be of high quality.
However, some cannabidiol tinctures contain carriers like propylene glycol, a common ingredient in vaping juices that may not be safe for oral consumption. Avoid tinctures that use any carrier other than hemp oil or MCT oil.
Laboratory tests and product reviews by users
Product ratings and reviews
Are the products rated and are there reviews for the products ? It is a simple matter of common sense, but it is always worth checking to see if they are real reviews or numerous starred reviews. They indeed reflect fake reviews.
You will also need to take steps to avoid buying a poor quality product as this will not be indicated on the bottle of the product purchased. In addition, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) does not issue a marketing authorization for CBD, as it is not considered a medicine. You will have to do some research on your own and find a high quality product. To do this, it may be helpful to look for third-party test results. They indicate that the formula is free of contaminants and contains appropriate levels of cannabidiol and THC.
Laboratory test results
At 1807 Blends, our products are certified to be free of contaminants, allergens, and GMOs that disrupt CBD quality.
There are also many variations in the types of information provided by cannabidiol lab reports. Extensive lab tests provide information on the concentration of each cannabinoid present in the cannabidiol product that they test. They also test for the presence of common contaminants like heavy metals and mycotoxins.
Finally, a good CBD lab report should also provide information about the terpenes present in a cannabidiol product. Although they can also be found in other plants, terpenes provide hemp with benefits just as important as cannabinoids. Knowing what terpenes your CBD oil contains can tell you a lot about how it will affect you.
A good tip is to simply go and ask the website’s customer service if they offer this service. We offer a Live Chat on which you can write to us as well as a contact email address. 1807 Blends cannabidiol oil can be of great help for a range of conditions and we will be happy to explain how they can help you feel better.
Discover the flavor of Swiss CBD oils
Even the best CBD product can be ruined by a bad flavor. Some people don’t like the taste of hemp oil. Then, you might want to consider a cannabidiol oil product with added flavoring.
If you choose a flavored CBD tincture, however, make sure the flavoring ingredients are safe and of high quality. Stay away from cannabidiol products advertised as containing “natural and artificial flavors”. This phrase often refers to dangerous chemical additives. Instead, opt for flavored CBD tinctures that include detailed lists of the exact natural flavoring ingredients they contain.
Consistency and shelf life of Swiss CBD oils
Determine the Swiss CBD oils consistency
In general, cannabidiol oil products should have about the same consistency as olive oil. If a CBD tincture you are considering has a thicker consistency, it may be a sign that it contains thickeners or other dangerous additives.
Under no circumstances should a cannabidiol oil have a gel or syrup consistency. Check out reviews on a CBD tincture product you are considering to determine its consistency. If you can’t find the information you are looking for, contact the manufacturer directly.
Swiss CBD oils Shelf life
Depending on the ingredients included in cannabidiol oil and the materials used to package it, this hemp extract can have a longer or shorter shelf life. In general, CBD extract has a shelf life of about a year, but that is only under ideal conditions.
Adding flavorings to cannabidiol oil, for example, can potentially reduce its shelf life somewhat. Also, you can reduce the shelf life of CBD oil by putting it in the wrong type of bottle if you are decanting it.
Hemp oil oxidizes in sunlight, so keeping your cannabidiol in an area that receives direct sunlight can oxidize it more quickly. Also, materials that allow light to pass through, such as clear glass, cause hemp oil to oxidize. To promote the longest possible shelf life, it is best to store CBD oil in opaque containers like the black bottle we use at 1807 Blends for optimal product preservation.
Is Swiss cannabidiol oil good for you ?
CBD is generally well tolerated and safe, although negative reactions, such as fatigue and digestive problems, are possible. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have any medical conditions, or are taking any over-the-counter or prescription medications or supplements, talk to your doctor before taking cannabidiol.
Swiss cannabidiol has the potential to interact with medications, including those that also interact with grapefruit.
Some research also suggests that taking CBD with high-fat meals could increase your risk of side effects. This is because high-fat meals can increase blood levels of cannabidiol, which can increase the risk of side effects.
Read the ingredient list carefully if you are allergic to coconut oil or have other possible allergies. Finally, it is helpful to check your country’s laws before buying CBD. When buying online, confirm with the manufacturer that they will ship to your area, but also check local laws.
