Why Use Cannabidiol CBD Oil Supplements?
CBD has become a highly sought-after compound in recent years, taking the natural products industry by storm after receiving highly publicized exposure in the media, including in Sanjay Gupta’s special, “Weed”, which first premiered on CNN. Since then, CBD oil products have appeared on shelves in doctor’s offices, medical marijuana dispensaries and grocery stores alike, with no medical card required to purchase.
What are the Effects of CBD?
CBD interacts with the body through the endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS) or endocannabinoid system. First discovered in the late 1980’s, the endocannabinoid system regulates the body’s homeostasis, or general state of balance, impacting such functions as mood, sleep, appetite, hormone regulation, and pain and immune response. Like an acrobat on a high wire, as the environment around us impacts our normal balance, the endocannabinoid system “corrects” by mediating our body’s reaction to keep us level.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
Found in all mammals, the endocannabinoid system is found in all mammals and is made up of millions of cannabinoid receptor sites located primarily throughout the brain and central nervous system (CB1 receptors) and immune system (CB2 receptors) that act in neural communication. However, the endocannabinoid system doesn’t simply rely on plant-based cannabinoids or Phytocannabinoids. The human body is capable of making its own cannabinoids. Similar in function to CBD, Anandamide and 2-AG are the body’s own endocannabinoids, created to control communication between cells, mediating your body’s functions.
It’s clear that the endocannabinoid system is one of the most important regulatory systems in the human body, but most people do very little to support the health of this system because cannabinoids have not been part of the average diet.
What are the Health Benefits of CBD?
In addition to positively affecting the endocannabinoid system, CBD has been the focus of more than 23,000 published studies about cannabinoids in relation to various medical indications including anxiety, epilepsy, inflammation, cancer and chronic pain to name few.
Does CBD Make me High?
No, CBD does not elicit a high feeling. The naturally low-THC hemp plant, a non-psychoactive of cannabis, grown in many countries around the world and imported into the United States for use in textiles, building materials, and of course nutritional supplements and foods.
There are thousands of unique varieties of hemp. The cultivars used for CBD oil contain significantly higher concentrations of CBD than others. Using these uniquely potent plants, it is possible to extract cannabis oil that contains significant levels of cannabidiol, as well as essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other non-psychoactive cannabinoids.
CBD hemp oil is also significantly different than the hemp seeds or organic hemp oil you commonly find in grocery stores. Derived only from hemp seeds, hemp seed oil is a great nutritional supplement, containing many vitamins and minerals and other healthy constituents, but it does not contain cannabidiol.
In the past decade or more, there have been over 23,000 of studies published in peer-reviewed medical journals detailing the effects of cannabis, cannabis oil, and cannabinoids on the body.
Now that families, legislators, scientists, and more are becoming aware of the potential of cannabidiol, hemp CBD oil presents a game-changing solution in the supplement marketplace, providing all the benefits CBD, without the high of marijuana, that thousands of people already count on every day.
What are the Differences between CBD and THC?
Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two most prominent cannabinoids found in Cannabis, the plant genus that includes both hemp and marijuana. While there are over 100 different cannabinoids so far identified in cannabis by scientists, CBD and THC are by far the most extensively studied and best understood.
One of the key differences between CBD and THC is whether the cannabinoid will cause a euphoric effect, or “high,” when consumed. THC does, and CBD does not have the “high” effect when consumed.
CBD and THC both interact with the body through the endocannabinoid system, a vital signalling system responsible for regulating a wide array of functions, some of which include:
• Immune response
• Cycles of cellular life and death
Does CBD Have Side Effects?
First and foremost, CBD will not cause you to experience a euphoric effect, or “high.” CBD oil is completely non-psychoactive. This means that, as opposed to THC, it not will adversely affect your sensory awareness, perception, consciousness, reaction time or behaviour.
While there have been some reports of dry mouth, low blood pressure and drowsiness, the health information site reports. CBD had no adverse physiological effect on the following:
• Blood pressure
• Heart rate
• Body temperature
• Glucose levels
• pH levels
• Exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the lungs and bloodstream
• Red blood cell volume
• Time it takes for food to leave stomach and travel through the intestines
• Vomiting action
• Body temperature
• Potassium and sodium levels
What is inside the E-njoint™?
A liquid containing Propylene Glycol, Vegetarian Glycerine and a biological flavor.
This liquid is vaporized into water vapor. Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerine both are syrup-like liquids that are odourless and colourless. These substances are used every day, in many consumables such as cosmetics, cake mixtures, soft drinks, salad dressings and many more. Glycerine is already used in more than 1500 applications. The majority of which are in the nutrition and drink sector.
Are there any known side effects?
There are cases known in which Propylene Glycol causes throat ache and muscle aches. Should these complaints return when you use the E-njoint™, you might be allergic to this ingredient? In which case we advise you to stop using the E-njoint™. In most cases of side effects, they only appear once.
Since Propylene Glycol is dehumidifying, it could dehydrate your mouth. Therefore it is always recommendable to keep drinking plenty of fluids.

Is there a minimum age to use E-njoint™?

Can I use the E-njoint™ everywhere?
