CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the main cannabinoids in cannabis. These organic compounds are unique because of the way they interact with the human body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS).

Moreover, the Cannabis sativa species contains at least 113 different cannabinoids, all of which trigger a different biological reaction when smoked, vaporized, or otherwise ingested.

Some of the other major compounds found in Cannabis sativa (apart from CBD) include:

  • Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, responsible for producing psychotropic effects)
  • Cannabinol (CBN)
  • Cannabigerol (CBG)
  • Cannabichromene (CBC)
  • Cannabicyclol (CBL)



While cannabidiol exists in all types of Cannabis sativa, hemp exhibits some of the highest levels. Not only is hemp a rich source of CBD, but it’s naturally low in THC, making it ideal for producing CBD-enhanced products.

Mature hemp plants undergo a sophisticated extraction process to isolate CBD (and dozens of other cannabinoids and terpenes) before being expertly infused with a variety of carrier oils.

It’s also possible to extract CBD from other varieties of cannabis. However, given the risk of THC’s unwanted side effects, hemp is a superior raw material for CBD products focused on well-being.



Cannabinoids exert their influence over the human body largely via the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is an extensive regulatory network of receptors (CB1 and CB2) located throughout the body. Its job is essentially to monitor and regulate homeostasis—a stable internal state.

When all the different biological systems in our body are balanced, they can operate more efficiently. That’s not to say it's unhealthy for this state to fluctuate, but when the ECS is chronically unbalanced—this is when serious problems can start.



Although every cannabinoid influences the ECS in some way, it’s possible to boost their effectiveness. When taken together, cannabinoids and terpenes synergise to exert effects greater than the sum of their parts—a phenomenon known as the entourage effect.

Studies have shown that CBD administered alongside a sophisticated blend of cannabinoids and terpenes has a more pronounced effect on the human body compared to just CBD. Unlike CBD isolate, which displays diminishing returns as the dose increases, full-spectrum CBD extracts appear to work in a dose-dependent manner. This means the efficacy doesn’t start to drop off after a certain dose threshold.



The easiest way to think of CBD and THC is as cousins. They both stem from similar origins, but they represent a different path in cannabinoid synthesis. Although the difference in chemical structure is only subtle, the impact on the human body is significant.

THC binds primarily with CB1 receptors in the brain, producing:

  • changes to appetite
  • impaired memory
  • reduced coordination
  • euphoria (a high)

CBD does not display a high binding affinity for either type of CB receptor. Instead, the cannabinoid takes a more general approach, boosting the overall effectiveness of the endocannabinoid system by encouraging the production of beneficial enzymes and endocannabinoids—compounds produced internally with a similar structure to cannabinoids.



It's essential to match the way you consume CBD to your individual needs. While some methods have greater bioavailability than others, they may not be suitable because of lifestyle restrictions or other circumstances. The good news is, there are plenty of options to choose from.

Inhalation (smoking, dabbing, and vaping)

CBD-rich cannabis strains are the primary option for individuals who want to smoke, dab, or vaporize CBD. Inhalation has high bioavailability, but the effects tend to not last very long. It’s also the least discreet method.

Topical/transdermal (salves and patches)

Topical CBD products—creams, salves, and lotions applied to the skin—don’t influence the body in the same way as traditional CBD ranges. As topical CBD does not enter the bloodstream, it is believed to affect the ECS at the site of application instead.

Transdermal patches differ, allowing cannabinoids to enter the bloodstream, albeit at a steady rate.

Oral ingestion (capsules, edibles, and CBD-infused drinks)

Simple to consume, CBD capsules, edibles, and drinks are a convenient way to experience the cannabinoid's effects. Active components must first travel through the digestive system, and as a result, onset and duration of effects are both extended. Oral consumption is also incredibly discreet, providing a versatile method of administration.

Sublingual (tinctures and oils)

The most popular option for consuming CBD, sublingual administration, provides one of the fastest onsets. By holding CBD-infused liquids in your mouth, small capillaries under the tongue and in the cheek give direct access to the bloodstream. Sublingual administration offers a good balance between speed of onset and duration of effects.


Although clinical research is limited, early indications suggest that CBD suppositories may allow the cannabinoid direct access to the bloodstream via capillaries in the rectum. However, regardless of whether they facilitate improved cannabinoid absorption, suppositories offer an alternative method of administration if you are unable to ingest CBD orally.


Due to CBD’s versatility, it's easily incorporated into a vast selection of products. Each product range will have specific advantages and disadvantages, and there is no superior option. Pick the CBD product that provides the most significant benefit to you.

It’s possible to extract CBD and other cannabinoids from plant material using a variety of methods. However, it's important to understand how CBD is extracted as this directly impacts the quality of the final product.

Solvent (alcohol extraction)

In this context, solvent-based extraction uses ethanol to harness the desired constituents. This method is favoured for its simplicity. By adding high-proof alcohol to plant material, cannabinoids bind with it before the liquid is evaporated to leave behind a cannabinoid-rich extract.

While solvent extraction is simple, it carries several risks. The remaining oil may still contain traces of solvents, chlorophyll, and other unwanted contaminants. And, due to its volatile nature, alcohol extraction may also destroy some essential cannabinoids and terpenes.

Olive oil (carrier oil extraction)

While olive oil is viable for CBD extraction, its yields are comparatively poorer, and it’s unsuitable for commercial production. Once decarboxylated, plant material is added to olive oil and heated for several hours. The heating process helps the cannabinoids bind with the oil. Once the oil is filtered, it’s bottled. This method of extraction is popular among users who wish to produce CBD at home.

Dry ice

Dry ice extraction produces better returns than olive oil but is still not suitable for commercial production. Fresh plant material is added to a bucket of dry ice before being vigorously shaken to remove cannabinoid-laden trichomes. Then, by using a series of graded mesh bags, the trichomes are refined.

What remains is a paste-like extract containing cannabinoids and terpenes. The process is relatively simple but requires practice to get right, and dry ice isn’t always easily available.

CO₂ extraction

CO₂ extraction is a superior method of extraction, not only for its safety, but its efficacy too. Although there are different types of CO₂ extraction (supercritical, subcritical, and mid-critical), supercritical CO₂ extraction provides an incredible level of control.

Supercritical CO₂ extraction

If you subject CO₂ gas to extreme temperature and pressure, you can turn it into a state somewhere between a liquid and a gas. In this supercritical state, CO₂ is then passed over plant material, where it binds with the cannabinoids and terpenes inside.

The solution then passes through a collection tank before being condensed at various temperatures. Not only do you retain a diverse spectrum of compounds, but CO₂ extraction provides incredibly pure CBD. Any leftover CO₂ is then safely dispersed back into the atmosphere.



The CBD industry is still largely under-regulated, and although Zamnesia ensures unrivalled quality in all the products we sell, it can be difficult for customers to know what exactly to look for.

Why do you want to use CBD?

Before trying CBD (in any of its forms), you should think about the reason you want to take it. Is it to support an existing condition, or as part of a balanced approach to well-being?

We recommended conducting your own research into CBD, as well as having an honest discussion with your doctor. Armed with this information, you can make an informed decision on whether CBD is right for you, and pick the product type that matches your needs.

Be aware of the extraction method

As we’ve highlighted above, various extraction methods have distinct advantages and disadvantages. While you can perform some of them at home, only a few methods of extraction scale for commercial use.

Supercritical CO₂ extraction offers several distinct advantages with very few downsides, but it does come at a cost. The machinery required for CO₂ extraction is incredibly expensive, and this can affect the overall price of CBD products.

However, be wary of CBD products that seem too good to be true. The drop in quality and the risk of dangerous chemicals from cheaper methods of extraction are not worth the low cost.

Always check how the CBD is produced, and even better, ask for independent test results. In doing so, you’ll be able to verify what’s in every bottle, capsule, or cream.

Investigate the origin of hemp used

If pesticides are used during hemp cultivation, these substances may remain in the final product. To avoid unwanted chemicals, additives, or GMOs, hemp should be grown naturally. Look for producers who can certify the origin of the hemp used to create CBD.

Verify the cannabinoid profile

Another essential factor to consider is whether a product is full spectrum, broad spectrum, or CBD isolate.

A full spectrum of cannabinoids may provide greater benefits, thanks to the entourage effect, but there may also be unnecessary levels of THC as a result. Again, check for independent test results so you can confirm the exact ratio of cannabinoids used. All full-spectrum CBD products sold by Zamnesia contain negligible levels of THC well under the legal threshold.

Check customer reviews if they’re available

Who better to tell you about the quality of a CBD product than the people who use them every day? Customer reviews will quickly tell you whether a product is worth your time, so keep an eye out for verified purchases.



CBD does not interact with the body in the same way as psychotropic cannabinoids such as THC. Thus, it will not produce a “high”. A review by the World Health Organisation (WHO) found that “CBD was generally well tolerated with a good safety profile”.

If you are new to CBD, it’s best to start with a low dose of a low-concentration product, and increase the dose slowly over time until you become accustomed to its effects.



In the same 2018 WHO review, it was found that “CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential”. Even in large doses, CBD appears well tolerated with no apparent risk of overdose. There may, however, be mild side effects from high doses of CBD; so, again, if you are unfamiliar with the cannabinoid, start low and slow.
