LEGAL DISCLAIMER: Due to FDA regulations and recent attention from the North Carolina Department Of Agriculture and Consumer Services (Food and Drug Protection Division) The Art of Undoing is no longer allowed to claim that CBD has any medicinal or health related benefits.
The FDA are not claiming that CBD doesn’t have these benefits, they are saying that such claims can only be made in regards to a drug that has been tested and verified through scientific study. Since CBD, as an isolated compound, has now been FDA approved in the form of Epidiolex, any other product claiming the same benefits from Cannabidiol would therefore be claiming to be a drug.
Further to this any claims whatsoever that CBD products can prevent, mitigate, diagnose, treat or cure serious disease indicate that the product is intended for use as a drug and as such are illegal. Any food item that contains CBD is also illegal because of the ‘drug’ connection and because they are concerned that children may consume such items unknowingly.
Contrary to widespread belief that the FDA and NC state are trying to limit CBD supply only to the big pharmaceutical companies it seems that they are looking out for the consumer and attempting to protect them from products that make unproven claims. In the long run this looks to benefit the consumer since many of the companies selling CBD products are making grand claims about disease prevention and cure, sell products with ineffective amounts of CBD with unsubstantiated hype. The Art of Undoing will no longer be selling CBD items but we can highly recommend Satya CBD as a company with high integrity and quality CBD products that we found to be very effective.
This webpage will be edited further to align with FDA and NC state law in the coming weeks.
CBD is one of over 60 medicinal compounds found in the cannabis plant. Cannabis is usually known for it’s psychedelic effects due to the cannabinoid THC. By selecting strains of the cannabis plant that are very low in THC (less than 0.3% by law) it is possible to provide a high CBD product with immense health benefits that does not get you high or impair your performance or judgement. Many studies have been done on CBD and it’s health benefits are well documented.
What Are The Main Properties of CBD?
CBD is claimed to have the following properties:
- Anti-inflammatory – helps reduce inflammation and swelling, good for symptoms of arthritis, Chrone’s Disease and IBS, neuro inflammation and traumatic brain injury.
- Anti-seizure – helps reduce the seizures associated with Epilepsy, Parkinson’s Disease and Dravet Syndrome.
- Anti-spasmodic – helps reduce spams associated with Multiple Sclerosis, menstruation and spinal injury.
- Antioxidant – good for reducing the effects of free radicals throughout the body, helping to slow down the ageing process and helps protect against cognitive degeneration from oxidative stress.
- Antiemetic – reduces nausea and vomiting, particularly useful with chemotherapy patients.
- Anxiolytic – reduces anxiety and as a result can help alleviate symptoms of depression, insomnia, panic attacks, social anxiety disorder and PTSD.
- Antipsychotic – CBD has shown promise as a treatment for psychosis and Schizophrenia and, ironically, is effective at reducing the paranoia and negative effects associated with some use of THC.
- Anti-tumour – CBD has been shown to interfere with the cell reproduction of tumours.
- Increases bone density and helps with healing of fractures and Osteoporosis.
Cannabidiol has been claimed to help with many more disorders, a comprehensive list can be found on our blog. Research is ongoing, currently most of the research has been in vivo but human studies are forthcoming and new benefits are being found all the time.
How To Take Cannabidiol
For oral administration it is recommended that the oil be swished around the gums and teeth and held under the tongue for at least 60 seconds, preferably more, before swallowing. This provides around 40-50% absorption whereas swallowing immediately gives less than approximately 6% absorption. It can also be used topically for aching joints and skin conditions although transdermal absorption into the blood stream is not as effective as oral administration or inhalation.
Our product is priced as low as possible so that those who need it can afford it. Many sellers online will confuse the consumer with pop science articles and advertising gimmicks to explain why theirs is the best CBD available and worth the high price. Satya CBD provides 500mg of full spectrum CBD extract in 30ml of MCT/LCT oil in a blue glass dropper bottle. One squirt is roughly 13mg and there are roughly 45 servings per bottle. This is just a guide, you can experiment and adjust the dosage to suit your needs.
How Is CBD Extracted From The Plant?
There are several different ways to extract CBD from the plant and each method gives a slightly different end product. The Entourage Effect is the belief that each of the other 483 known compounds adds to the overall effect of the extract and increases the power of the CBD rather than just using isolated CBD alone. This is similar to how whole herbs are more powerful and effective than a single extracted compound from the plant. Each extraction process has it’s pros and cons.
Carbon dioxide (Co2) extraction – very expensive and requires special equipment but gives a good clean product, free of chlorophyll, strips out more terpenes unless both critical and sub-critical C02 extractions are combined.
Ethanol extraction – preserves more of the terpenes (other medicinal compounds) and can give a cleaner product but destroys the waxes.
Butane extraction – very dangerous if not done correctly, possibility of toxins remaining in the extract unless done by someone very skilled, good for vapable extracts and inhalation.
Oil extraction – the flowers and leaves are dried and powdered and heated gently in oil to absorb all the compounds of the dried plant, gives the most full spectrum extract and is easy for anyone to do but potency is much lower and many compounds may be extracted that aren’t wanted.
