CBD+ oil is a mixture of hemp seed oil and an organically produced fresh hemp extract, also referred to as CBD paste. This paste is the pure product and it has not undergone any unnatural treatment whatsoever. Precise CO2 extraction removes it from the plant material and it is then immediately incorporated into the end product. By using the pure product, all available cannabinoids, terpenoids and terpenes produced by the plant, end up in the oil. In fact, you use the plant exactly as nature intended, and it shows too! CBD+ products are healthier and work better than products containing only CBD or products processed in laboratories.
CBD is the abbreviation of Cannabidiol and just as with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), it is a cannabinoid and active ingredient of cannabis. However, the one difference between the two cannabinoids is that CBD, unlike THC, is not psychoactive and for that reason it does not provide a stoned or high feeling and is therefore safe to use. Scientific studies on the medical effects of cannabis have shown that CBD is just as valuable as THC, but then without the negative effects. Please see below to read what these positive effects are.
Connected to cannabis by nature
Humans and animals have cannabis receptors in their body cells. In humans these receptors (CB1 and CB2) are mainly concentrated in the brain and the immune system. This is our endocannabinoid system. The cannabinoid receptors are activated after CBD ingestion and they attach to the cell surface. Studies show that the introduction (through ingestion) of CBD into our endocannabinoid system results in both a healthier body and endocannabinoid system, but no addiction arises.
Most of the medical benefits cannabis has to offer are attributable to CBD. All of these characteristics mean that CBD is extremely suitable for use by adults, children and animals. For example, studies indicate that CBD can have a very strong anti-inflammatory effect. CBD may also help to stop inflammation developing in the body, which means CBD can also work preventively. The most common medical complaints positively affected by CBD are named below.
It has been shown that CBD can contribute enormously to good functioning of the body and that it can have an immediate and positive effect on our health. It also provides support in relation to many illnesses including nervousness, tension and pain.
For example, CBD is also an anticonvulsant agent, that is to say that it can reduce epileptic seizures or even make them disappear. This is why many epilepsy patients are glad to be able to use this miraculous oil as a suitable antiepileptic.
Positive effect with ADHD, asthma, migraine and rheumatism
In addition to this, CBD+ oil can also provide positive results in the treatment of asthma, attention deficit disorder, autism, diabetes, migraine, tension headache, Crohn’s disease, rheumatism (including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, myositis, bursitis, Bechterew’s disease and gout) and other autoimmune diseases. Patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) experience relief from the pain related to muscle tension.
Better night’s sleep
CBD also has a very positive effect on sleeping problems caused by muscle tension, menstrual pain, anxiety disorders or nausea. It is a strong natural agent beneficial in the treatment of various skin diseases and conditions such as psoriasis or eczema.

CBD+ oil is a food supplement but it is intended for both internal and external use. Shake well before use. Place one or more drops under the tongue and keep this in your mouth for a minute before swallowing. In addition to a regular dosage, when required you can use the oil for the relief of acute complaints or right before going to bed. You can also apply the oil to the skin without any problems.
A standard dosage for CBD oil doesn’t really exist. Everyone reacts differently to CBD and someone weighing 20 kg obviously requires far less than someone weighing 125 kg. In addition, the one complaint requires more CBD than the other. Various medical studies show that 2 mg of CBD can be just as effective as 200 mg. It is therefore a question of what you feel you need. Many people start off with a dose of 2 drops of oil under the tongue taken 3 times daily. Based on the effect, after a few days to weeks you will be able to feel whether you require a higher or lower dose. The most important thing here is to make sure you do whatever you feel comfortable with. CBD products containing percentages above 10% aren’t necessarily better. It is important for the product to contain all substances produced by the plant. It is also important to use a product containing less than 0.05% THC. A THC level above this percentage has a negative effect on the development of children’s brains. Not many people know this. So you should always ask your supplier about the exact THC percentage.
Various producers remain close to nature and they produce and sell CBD+ oil online. The CBD oil from Dutch Natural Healing is a decent example of a high quality CBD+ oil with an outstanding reputation. Another well-known CBD+ oil is already available in the shops. Jacob Hooy’s CBD oil can be called a true CBD+ oil and it contains 2.75% CBD. This is an excellent and safe percentage and it is suitable for adults, children and pets. Shops and stores that sell the oil include Holland & Barrett.
CBD+ oil is exclusively made from the legally and organically grown buds and flowers of the cannabis plant. After a period of controlled growth the tops and flowers are removed from the plant with machines specially designed for that purpose. The product is immediately transported to the drying ovens and the paste is then separated from the plant by means of precise CO2 extraction. All of these processes take place within 4 hours of harvesting. The application of this costly method is the only way to produce a fresh and pure product. Several samples are taken to guarantee the quality of CBD+ oil, these are tested in certified laboratories to check for the presence of metals and pesticides. The percentages of cannabinoids, terpenes and terpenoids are taken and registered at this stage. All of these steps guarantee that CBD+ oil is a healthy, fresh and high-quality product.
