A concept that until recently was only known to a handful of people is experiencing a boom today. Products containing cannabidiol, or CBD for short, are becoming increasingly popular. How to use them for your health and what should you know before starting to use them? We have prepared a handy overview for you, which will help you in making decisions and purchasing .

It is obtained from technical hemp

Let's first look at where CBD is found and how it is obtained. At the beginning is a plant called cannabis sativa , which contains over 540 different chemical compounds. THC and CBD are among the best known and most widely represented. Both compounds belong to the group of cannabinoids.

Tetrahydrocannabinol, abbreviated THC , is a psychoactive compound causing a change in our perception. It stimulates the part of the brain that releases dopamine into the body, which is responsible for states of euphoria and well-being. It is most often taken into the body by inhalation.

Cannabidiol, abbreviated CBD (Cannabidiol) , is not psychoactive and therefore does not change our perception in any way. On the contrary, it regulates and moderates the effects of THC. The substance CBD is most often obtained primarily from technical hemp, which contains almost no THC components.

Is CBD legal in Slovakia?

Despite this, the substance CBD was included on the list of psychotropic and narcotic substances in Slovakia for many years. In our region, it was considered illegal and criminal liability was imposed for its possession or sale. Within the EU countries, we were the only and last country with such access to cannabidiol. Many people have therefore asked when CBD will finally be legal in Slovakia.

In December last year, a long-awaited breakthrough occurred. The government adopted an amendment to the law, which excluded the substance from the list. It should be noted that the psychoactive substance THC remains on the list. From that moment on, the sale and purchase of products containing CBD is legal in Slovakia.

Proven benefits of CBD for body and mind

The advantages are confirmed by numerous studies and positive references from users. The effects of CBD will be appreciated by athletes, working people, seniors, seriously ill patients and also children. What effects of CBD are worth knowing about?

  • Relieves both chronic and acute pain, including migraine.
  • It improves sleep and helps reduce anxiety, stress and depression.
  • It helps in the treatment of acne, as it has anti-inflammatory properties and reduces sebum production.
  • It relieves symptoms associated with cancer, as well as side effects such as pain and nausea from chemotherapy.
  • It helps with epileptic seizures, also in children and with serious syndromes, such as Dravet syndrome or Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.

It is interesting that CBD treatment seems to be well tolerated by our four-legged pets as well. Although the positive effects on the health of dogs are currently not proven by any scientific study, many owners have a clear opinion. They claim that regular administration of CBD oil helped their dogs from pain or seizures.

It is necessary to calculate the dosage based on the weight of the animal. To begin with, proceed according to the formula 0.5 mg x Kg of the animal's weight = 1 regular daily dose. Apply 2-3 times a day.


Beware of side effects

The CBD compound is usually very well tolerated, however, side effects may occur. This includes, for example, dry mouth, fatigue, lower blood pressure, general malaise or diarrhea. However, these symptoms usually appear after consuming a larger dose of the substance. That's why you need to be careful about the dosage, which is discussed in the paragraph below. It is also not recommended for use by women during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

As for contraindications with alcohol, opinions differ. The results of a smaller study show that combining alcohol with CBD causes a significant impairment of motor skills and changes in the perception of time. According to the experience of some users, the consumption of alcohol together with CBD increases drowsiness and lethargy. Others claim that the effects of both substances are enhanced and changes in mood or behavior occur. 

What is the recommended daily dose of CBD?

The amount of CBD we take daily depends on many factors. It is important to take into account body weight, condition and the concentration of CBD in the product. It is best to start with a smaller daily dose of 15mg and gradually increase it. Increasing the daily dose is described in more detail in THIS article.

It is possible that some days, for example with increased pain, you will be relieved by a higher dose. Record your findings on your phone or on paper so you can always refer back to them. According to available studies , even a high dose of 1,500 mg per day can be well tolerated by our body. However, we always recommend consulting your doctor about higher doses.

Oil, capsules, creams or flowers

On the market today, we can find different forms of CBD, such as creams, capsules, pastes, gummy candies, crystalline isolate or flower cones, which you can smoke just like classic THC-containing marijuana. However, the most popular and common products are CBD oils. It is a mixture of CBD substance with hemp or coconut oil. on the market to get various strong concentrations, from 1% to 40%. Prices for a bottle of CBD oil start at around 20 euros, they also vary according to strength.

Since it is not a 100% concentrate, dosing can be more difficult. Watch the packaging and count on us. One drop represents about 0.05 ml. This means that a 10 ml bottle of CBD oil contains 200 drops. If the packaging states that the package contains 1000 mg of CBD, each drop will contain approximately 5 mg of CBD. Based on the daily dose of 20 mg, you should take four drops.
