Frequently Asked Questions

What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is a compound found in the cannabis plant. It is one of many compounds found in the plant, including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the main psychoactive component. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce the "high" typically associated with cannabis use, but has been reported to have various health benefits such as reducing anxiety, improving sleep, and reducing pain and inflammation. CBD is available in various forms, including oils, tinctures, capsules, and topical creams, and can be consumed orally, topically, or inhaled. CBD is legal in the UK and CBD has been declared safe by the World Health Organisation.
What is THC?
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is a naturally occurring compound found in the Cannabis plant. It is the primary psychoactive compound in marijuana and is responsible for the “high” that is commonly associated with its use. THC binds to the CB1 receptors in the brain and central nervous system, leading to changes in perception, mood, and behavior. THC has been used for both medicinal and recreational purposes, although its use is still heavily regulated in many countries due to its psychoactive effects and potential for abuse. It is important to note that the use of products containing THC can result in unwanted side effects and can also cause a person to fail a drug test. Cannabotech’s products contain 0% THC.

    Adaptogens are natural substances, such as plants and mushrooms, that can help the body adapt to stress and improve overall well-being. They are believed to work by regulating the body's stress response and promoting homeostasis.

    Several types of mushrooms have been traditionally used as adaptogens in traditional medicine systems, particularly in Asia. Some of the most commonly used adaptogenic mushrooms include:

  • Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum)

  • Cordyceps (Cordyceps militaris)

  • Chaga (Inonotus obliquus)

  • Lion's Mane (Hericium erinaceus)

  • Shiitake (Lentinula edodes)

  • Maitake (Grifola frondosa)

    These mushrooms are believed to help the body adapt to stress and promote overall well-being. Researchers are discovering new capabilities everyday.
  • What does CBD do?
    CBD is thought to interact with the body's endocannabinoid system, which is involved in regulating various functions such as sleep, appetite, pain, and immune system response.
    what are the benefits of CBD for the skin ?
    CBD (Cannabidiol) has been increasingly recognized for its potential benefits for the skin. Some of the potential benefits of CBD for the skin include:

  • Anti-inflammatory effects: CBD has been shown to have potent anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce redness and swelling of the skin.

  • Acne reduction: CBD has been shown to regulate the production of oil in the skin, which can help reduce the formation of acne.

  • Skin hydration: CBD has been shown to increase the skin's hydration levels, making it more supple and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Pain relief: Topical application of CBD has been shown to have pain-relieving effects, which can be beneficial for conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.

  • Improved skin barrier function: CBD has been shown to improve the skin's natural barrier function, which helps to protect against environmental stressors and reduce moisture loss.
  • How do I know which product is right for me?
    The decision to take food supplements, oral drops, or topical application depends on the desired outcome. Food supplements and oral drops are typically used for systemic effects, such as reducing anxiety or promoting sleep, and are absorbed through the digestive system. Topical application, such as creams or lotions, may be more suitable for localized pain or inflammation and are absorbed through the skin. The method of absorption affects the onset and duration of effects, so it's important to consider these factors when choosing the right method. Cannabotech always has product specialists available that can assist you in choosing the perfect product for you.
    What are cannabinoids?
    Cannabinoids are compounds found in hemp plants. The most commonly known cannabinoids include cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). So far there have been over 100 cannabinoids identified and isolated from hemp plants, all of which exhibit different effects.
    Does CBD get you high?
    No, CBD does not make you high. CBD is one of many compounds found in the cannabis plant, but unlike its more famous cousin THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), it does not produce the psychoactive effects that are commonly associated with marijuana use.

    CBD is believed to have a variety of potential therapeutic uses, including the treatment of anxiety, depression, pain, and inflammation, but it does not cause the "high" that is typically associated with marijuana use. While both CBD and THC interact with the body's endocannabinoid system, they do so in different ways, which is why CBD does not produce the same intoxicating effects as THC.
    Will CBD show up on a drug test?
    You will not test positive for a drug test. Most Drug tests that screen for marijuana use tests for THC. Cannabotech uses premium CBD isolate with 0% THC. When choosing a CBD provider is it important to choose a reputable company that only uses CBD isolate if you are regularly tested.
    How will know the CBD is working?
    The effects of CBD can vary depending on the individual, the dose, and the form in which it is consumed. Some people may experience noticeable effects after using CBD, while others may not notice any changes or may only experience subtle effects.

    Here are some ways you can determine if CBD is working for you:

  • Keep a journal: Recording your experiences and symptoms before and after using CBD can help you track any changes you may notice.

  • Pay attention to changes in your body: If you are using CBD for a specific condition, such as anxiety or pain, pay attention to any changes in your symptoms and make note of any improvement. It is important to remember that the effects of CBD can take time to become apparent, and that individual experiences can vary. We all know when we feel “bad”, but we do not always notice when we feel “good”.
  • How long does it take to feel the benefit?
    Cannabotech has three CBD delivery methods.

  • Food Supplements: CBD supplements are absorbed into the body through the digestive system. When taken orally, the CBD in the tablet is absorbed into the bloodstream through the small intestine after it is broken down by the digestive system. From there, the CBD is carried throughout the body and can interact with various receptors and systems. It takes a few hours to feel the effects and is designed for individuals looking for long term health benefits.

  • Drops: Sublingual consumption is a method of administration that allows for faster onset of effects compared to oral consumption. When CBD is taken sublingually, it is absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the small blood vessels in the mucous membranes of the mouth, bypassing the digestive system and liver metabolism. Results can be felt in as little to 15-45 minutes. This allows for higher bioavailability and is designed for individuals looking for immediate relief.

  • Topical application: When a CBD-infused topical product is applied to the skin, the CBD in the product interacts with the cannabinoid receptors located in the skin and nearby tissues. This can result in localized effects, such as pain relief, reduced inflammation, and improved skin health. Topical application of CBD does not reach the bloodstream and interact with the rest of the body in the same way as oral or sublingual consumption. Results can be felt quickly and are designed for individuals looking to target a specific area.
