What is CBD?
Frequently asked questions about CBD and its uses

1What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural metabolite found in the hemp flower. Its analgesic effects can soothe certain types of pain, and its tranquillizing, antioxidant properties make it effective both on its own and in conjunction with other therapies. It is now given in various countries as part of treatments for pain.

Our bodies have a self-governing system based on constant cellular renewal. The adaptogenic properties of CBD help to naturally encourage our bodies to regulate the process of cellular regeneration.

Therefore, cannabidiol helps our bodies to stay healthy and to maintain a general state of wellbeing by acting on the cannabinoid receptors found in cell membranes.
2What is the endocannabinoid system?
The endocannabinoid system is a complex, endogenous system of cell communication. It is made up of cannabinoid receptors and proteins that are responsible for the transport of endocannabinoids throughout our bodies. This means that, within each of us, there are receptors ready to recognize cannabinoids and to react to them.

The primary cannabinoid receptors are the CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors, in particular, are believed to be of central importance to the regions of the brain that control memory and movement, whereas CB2 receptors have been studied for their impact on our immune system.

In short, CBD is in no way a foreign substance.
3Does CBD have any side effects?
There are currently no significant side effects of taking CBD. In the absence of studies to the contrary, we can therefore currently state that the use of CBD-based products does not have any significant side effects.
4What is CBD oil?
Sensitiva CBD oil is the best natural solution to meeting your daily dose of cannabidiol and is composed solely of CBD mixed with a dietary MCT oil (medium-chain triglycerides, or fatty acids, that are easier to digest and absorb).
5How is CBD oil made?
At Sensitiva, we extract CBD from the plant by way of a CO2 process. This extraction process achieves a product without deposits or other impurities and that is able to meet high pharmaceutical standards.

Once extracted and crystallized, the CBD is dissolved in MCT oil in various percentages depending on the need, thereby creating our entire range of products.

The MCT oil we use has one of the quickest absorption rates, so it leaves your skin feeling silky smooth and never oily.

All Sensitiva CBD oils are colorless, odorless and flavorless, and their transparency is an indicator of the utmost purity.
6How is CBD oil to be used?
Placing CBD oil beneath the tongue is the primary, most common method for everyday use.

Use the dropper to place a few drops of oil under your tongue and let rest for 60-90 seconds before swallowing to allow the product to be absorbed.

Topical application is more specific to insect bites or stings, or to redness, psoriasis, dryness or other irritations of the skin. Rub a few drops of oil on the area affected and wait for it to be absorbed.
7What dosage should I use?
Each of us is different for a great many reasons, so the right dosage may vary from person to person. Because it is a natural product, our bodies need to metabolize it, and this can take a few days.

We recommend starting with three drops of our 750mg CBD oil in the morning and three in the evening at first, during meals when possible in order to increase absorption, then increase the dosage by one drop every three days. In this way, you will increase to four drops in the morning and four in the evening after three days and to five drops, morning and evening, after six days, and so on, until you have reached a dosage that has a noticeable effect. If you reach a dosage of more than ten drops per day, we recommend switching from our 750mg CBD oil to 1500mg and so on.

For example, many notice a clear improvement in sleep quality—an excellent indicator of the effects of CBD—in just a few days, while others need more time.

Seeking the advice of a specialist is also recommended.
8Can CBD oil help with my specific ailment?
Although our oils are not pharmaceuticals, numerous studies have confirmed that CBD oil soothes inflammation and various types of pain, such as in relation to PMS, and alleviates anxiety and panic attacks. With topical use, it can be effective in combating dermatitis, psoriasis, and allergic reactions.

CBD is also often used in the clinical treatment of patients with Parkinson’s disease or epilepsy or who are experiencing other types of seizure.

The efficacy of CBD oils has also been demonstrated in combating schizophrenia, PTSD, diabetes, and asthma.
