What is CBD?

CBD, or Cannabidiol, is the second most prevalent active ingredient in the cannabis plant. It is one of dozens of cannabinoids found within the plant. CBD is associated with numerous benefits and can be consumed in a wide variety of different product formats. These formats include oils, capsules, beverages, edibles, flower, pre-rolls, vape pens and topicals.

What is CBD Oil?

CBD Oil is one of the most popular methods of cannabidiol consumption. CBD is typically infused into an MCT (coconut oil) base. However, CBD oils can be made with a variety of carriers including Ahiflower seed oil and olive oil. Hemp-derived CBD oils will have less than 0.3% THC by definition while most CBD-dominant oils will have between 0.1-3mg of THC/ml – which is a non-perceptive dose.

What are the purported benefits of CBD?

Consumers use CBD for a wide variety of recreational and therapeutic applications. Many studies point to CBD being a promising anti-inflammatory agent. Largely due to these anti-inflammatory properties, CBD is currently being studied for its efficacy in treating a wide variety of ailments including pain, anxiety and insomnia. In 2021, CBD was approved by the FDA for the treatment of epilepsy. Further studies are needed before any concrete conclusions can be drawn. We can not make any substantial claims about this cannabinoid because Canadian legal recreational retailers are barred from communicating about the medical or therapeutic benefits of CBD or cannabis in general.

Where can I buy CBD Oil in Vancouver and Canada?

In Canada, CBD is regulated the same as THC and other cannabis derivatives. Therefore, you will only be able to purchase CBD products from legal recreational cannabis retail stores like THC Canada, located at 6416 Main Street in South Vancouver. We carry a wide range of CBD-dominant products including several different oils, capsules, beverages and edibles.

What is the entourage effect?

The entourage effect is a theory that states that cannabinoids are more effective when used in conjunction with each other and with other parts of the plant. Some believe that consuming full-spectrum, whole plant extracts or products is preferable over consuming isolates or distilled derivatives. There are some early stage studies that indicate that the benefits of CBD are enhanced when taken simultaneously with other cannabinoids and terpenes.
