What are CBD Oils?

CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is a chemical compound that comes from the cannabis plant. It is scientifically known to have antidepressant and anti-inflammatory qualities. It can also be used to treat epilepsy, sleep disorders, chronic pain, and has neuroprotective qualities. Yes, it even protects the brain!

The difference between THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD is that CBD does not contain the psychoactive attributes that THC does. Therefore, it will not intoxicate or alter your perception in any way. This makes CBD a much better choice for those looking for the healing properties without the “high” feeling.

CBD oils can be purchased raw or mixed with a carrier such as coconut oil or olive oil. This helps with the absorption of the CBD oil into the bloodstream.

CBD treatment has also proven to be very effective on animals as well as humans. There is a wide variety of CBD pet treats available on the market.

What is the difference between CBD oil and Medical THC oil?

Although CBD oil is derived from the cannabis plant, just as THC is, there are some differences. Both the hemp plant and marijuana plant contain different levels and types of cannabidiols – the non-intoxicating cannabis compound. Put simply, the CBD oil derives from the hemp plant, which contains less than 0.03% THC by dry weight. The marijuana plant can contain up to 30% THC.

Hemp itself is used for many products such as textiles, industrial textiles, building materials, paper, food, and body care thanks to the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2015

So what are the effects of CBD on the body?

CBD is known as a pleiotropic drug. THC binds the two endocannabinoid receptors in the body, CB1 and CB2. This also helps activate other receptors in the body, such as serotonin receptors, that regulate mood and the TrpV1 receptor that regulate body temperature, inflammation, and pain. These binding attributes are what makes CBD such an amazing product!

It has been scientifically proven to help with the following:

  • Reducing Anxiety
  • Lowering Blood Pressure
  • Protecting the Brain and Promoting Brain Cell Growth
  • Lowering Inflammation
  • Improving Sleep – Insomnia
  • Improving Bone and Heart Health
  • Reducing Pain
  • Addiction and PTSD

Medical Advice and Side Effects

We do not make any claim or diagnosis that CBD products heal you of any disease or illnesses. It is always in your best interest to educate yourself and consider the side effects of any supplement added to your daily living. When starting any new regimen, it is very important that you discuss treatment with your medical doctor first. While CBD products are considered very safe and there are no known side effects if you feel you are experiencing adverse effects to CBD products you should discontinue use and immediately seek medical attention.

How will I know how the much CBD to take?

There are many things to consider here. The ailment, individual weight, and body tolerance are all important factors. Generally, it is a good idea to start with a dose between 2-5mg and see how that makes you feel. Increase your dosage by an additional milligram until you reach the desired effect. If you have a lower tolerance to medications, consider starting with a dosage of 1-2mg.

How long does it take to start working?

CBD can be absorbed through various methods. The length of time of absorption varies between methods. The fastest way is through smoking via vape cartridge, or CBD rolled cigarettes. For those that do not enjoy smoking the next quickest way is sublingually, placing drops under the tongue. There are also various edibles on the market, such as gummy candies, or even capsules. These take a little longer since they have to be digested. The slowest method is through topicals such as salves and balms that are rubbed on the skin.

What is the difference between Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and Isolate?

These are terms used to define what type of CBD is in each product. It is important to understand the differences so that you can determine which product will better suit your needs.

Isolate is the purest form of CBD. All other compounds such as terpenes, plant parts, other cannabinoids, and flavonoids are removed. It is typically extracted from hemp due to it’s low to none THC content.

Full Spectrum contains all the good stuff compounds found naturally in the plant working together for full therapeutic benefits. It is also known as “the entourage effect.”

A study done at the Lautenberg Center for General Tumor Immunology in Jerusalem in 2005 proved that full spectrum is more effective than isolate.

Broad Spectrum has all the compounds, but the THC is completely removed.

Sentient Oils donates 10% of all sales to House of Ruth

Sentient Oils donates 10% of all sales to House of Ruth to help empower women. House of Ruth has a mission to make sure "every woman in Maryland will be safe in her own home".

The House of Ruth Maryland leads the fight to end violence against women and their children by confronting the attitudes, behaviors and systems that perpetuate it, and by providing victims with the services necessary to rebuild their lives safely and free of fear.

House of Ruth Maryland was founded in May of 1977 by a coalition of women’s organizations, religious groups, service providers, and elected officials to provide a safe haven for victims of domestic violence and their children. In November of 1977 we opened Baltimore’s first crisis shelter for these victims in a row house on North Calvert Street. The shelter was staffed by one paid staffed person and a voluntary Board of Directors

In November 1998 a new 84-bed shelter and 6 apartment transitional housing, featuring expanded services and programs, opened. The new shelter has a holistic health and wellness program, including an on-site health clinic staffed by the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing.

Today, House of Ruth Maryland is recognized as one of the nation’s most comprehensive domestic violence centers and has a staff of more than ninety. Our voluntary leadership consists of a thirty-member Board of Directors and an Advisory Committee.
