What is CBD oil?
CBD stands for “Cannabidiol” – Can-na-bid-i-ol.
This is just one item or cannabinoid that is found in large quantities in the Cannabis or Hemp plant. Most CBD oil comes from industrial hemp rather than psychoactive marijuana strains. The two plants are related however industrial hemp does not contain nearly as much psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol ( THC)
What are Flavonoids?
Flavonoids are polyphenolic molecules containing 15 carbon atoms and are soluble in water. They provide health benefits through cell signaling pathways and antioxidant effects and are found in a variety of fruits and vegetables.
Does CBD interact with other medications?
YES-The cytochrome P450 enzyme is involved in metabolizing many pharmaceutical drugs. You may have heard about people being told not to use grapefruit juice as there are compounds in this that will have the same effect on medications. Just like grapefruit, CBD can either reduce or increase the effects of other drugs. This is why we stress that if you are ever in doubt you should always seek a doctor. They sometimes advise not to eat grapefruit shortly before or after taking a medication.
I personally, not the case for everyone, have come of sleepers and other medications due to CBD. Other people have reported a reduction in their medications, however, you should always consult a doctor if in doubt, regardless of the large positive reports from the CBD Industry. They are testing CBD for its use to enhance anti-biotics and for treatments on Covid-19. Even though the results are promising, nothing is set in stone.
What is the difference between Isolate CBD and Whole Plant CBD?
With CBD isolates, you receive only 1 cannabinoid (Cannabidiol – CBD) out of the 120 odd in the Hemp plant. The whole plant provides everything the plant has to offer from CBD to the terpenes and everything in-between.
What methods are used to filter the Raw/Whole plant extract?
CO2 extraction is the most common. You can also use other solvents like ethanol and cold press extraction. Some companies use a mixture of the above methods.
Are there side effects from taking CBD oil?
Yes. Having said this CBD oil is generally considered to be safe for most people, and we have yet to witness anyone having negative side effects from my products. In cases, we have come across where side effects were reported the people involved took extremely large doses of CBD. These doses were well above the advised suggested doses. You can read one such study HERE.
How do I take CBD and at what dosage?
Get in touch and let us help you with this otherwise follow the suggested dosage on the products and leaflets supplied.
Because Hemp plants are grown differently, depending on the supplier, the quality of the CBD products at the end of the process could be different. The standard of the production facility will also have an effect on the end result of the CBD products. This in conjunction with the unique individual you are in terms of genetic makeup and the state of your endocannabinoid system means no one dosage works for everyone.
The above factors play into the way you administrate the CBD as some methods are more bio-available than others. For example, Vaping offers a near-instant reaction however the effect dissipates quickly. On the other hand, Tinctures can take up to 15-mins to take effect yet the results last longer than vaping. The bottom line is, not all CBD products are made equal and you are unique. Take us up on the offer of allowing us to work with you in selecting a CBD product, to the consumption of the products. Our goal is to help you find a therapeutic dose that works while making the products last as long as possible.
Will CBD show up on a drug test?
No. And I am sorry to say, yes as there are many poor quality CBD products on the market and not just in Ireland. A high-quality CBD brand will have a seed to bottle plan. The products will also come from a GMP Certified facility and these two factors help to ensure quality and consistency. In Ireland on towards the end of 2019 companies were tested on various aspects of the FSAI regulations. 15 companies failed for various reasons and many were due to the fact that there was THC detected.
To be transparent it needs to be noted that even if these companies had 0.2% CBD in the products there is a high likely hood a test would not show THC. Someone would have to take around 2000mg of CBD in a day and even then there is only about a 25% chance of testing positive. Our products have ZERO THC in them so you will not fail a test for THC.
Does CBD Oil – Hemp Oil relax your muscles?
CBD Oil or Hemp Oil can directly help with the slow down of the chemical messages that are responsible for letting your brain know you are in pain. When you take CBD Oil – Hemp Oil like Prime Spectrum CBD, you are providing your body with extra Cannabinoids and Terpenes which help reduce pain and inflammation so there are also less of these signals produced. It should be noted that pain is the body’s way of letting you know there is something wrong. Therefore is always best to address the reason why you are in pain as well as treating the pain or tension.
What causes Muscle Tension and Pain?
There are many reasons as to why this occurs. Many of us do not sit correctly in our offices and we often drive in poor positions. When we sit at home and sleep on a poor or old mattress or bed it adds to the issues. Making sure you have correct posture throughout the day and night really can decrease these issues. We often pick up items incorrectly and wear poor footwear. Over time this causes wear and tear on the body and old age is natural. Making sure you wear orthotics or a posture correction belt if needed can help lower this pain and tension. CBD Oil – Hemp Oil could help further lower this feeling of pain and tension.
Can CBD Oil- Hemp Oil help with your muscle pains?

What is Full Spectrum CBD Oil?
Full-spectrum hemp extract is a pure extract of the hemp plant, including all 120 odd Cannabinoids, Terpenes, and Flavonoids. This also includes the THC element. Further filtration and manufacturing are needed before it is ready for consumption.
Are CBD Oil capsules any good?
Capsules are great for people who want to take CBD on the go as they are easy to take. You need to look at the strength of the capsule and how it is produced as bio-availability is decreased when taken in this format. A good quality capsule is a great way to maintain your CBD levels during the night when you sleep. Find out more at Prime Spectrum CBD Ireland.
Which are better CBD Oils Or CBD Capsules?
CBD Oils are the fast-acting option and get into your bloodstream quicker. They are also more bio-available to the body. Capsules are slower releasing and are less bio-available especially in poor products. Some oil can taste poor so this may be another factor in your decision-making process. It is all down to your own needs and there are pros and cons to both. It is about perspective. Find out more at Prime Spectrum CBD Ireland.
Can I get addicted to CBD Oil?
There should be no need to worry about this with a good CBD Hemp brand as they are fully regulated and legal. CBD is a non-intoxicating substance.

Extremely high doses of CBD can be damaging to the liver. This would be the same for any other product or substance. There is only so much of something that is placed into your body that can be used absorbed and excreted at the one time safely. A good CBD Hemp brand can always advise you on the recommended dosage of their products and as always if in doubt talk to your doctor. Find out more at Prime Spectrum CBD Ireland.
Are Prime Spectrum’s CBD Oil products legal In Ireland?
Yes. We are registered with the FSAI (85061) and our products have zero THC in them. They are safe for use and distribution in Ireland and the EU. We are also on the Irish Pharmacy Union – IPU registration system.
If CBD does not make you high, does that mean it is legal?
In Ireland and the EU, with a license, you can grow Sativa Hemp as long as the THC content stays below 0.2%. However, this does not translate into CBD Hemp products as these are not allowed to have any trace of THC in them whatsoever. CBD is classified as a food supplement and is under the supervision of the FSAI / HSE in Ireland. If your products are registered and comply with FSAI laws and contain ZERO traces of THC they are deemed legal.
What CBD Oil has the best bioavailability?
Using a CBD Hemp oil with good bioavailability is very important. Buying a cheap, poorly made product will mean you need to take much more of it to have the effect you desire. Prime Spectrum CBD products have, by far, the best bioavailability in Ireland. This means you need to take less of our products to have the desired effect you require. This means the product could last you twice as long as other brands. Product selection and dosage are the other two most important factors and we are with you every step of the way to help you here too. Read more about bioavailability HERE.
What CBD Oil have the best value for money?

You can use Prime Spectrum’s CBD Balm as often as you need. We would suggest that you use it sparingly and often. Your skin can only absorb so much at the one time and you also want to make sure you don’t apply to much so your clothing rubs it off.
Can I use normal payment systems and methods to run my CBD Business?
No. CBD as of this date 2020 means you will find it hard to use the same payment systems as other businesses. For example, Stripe will not work with your CBD business, and with other systems, the rates and interest are higher.
Is branding important for your CBD Oil company important?
This is a growing market space and if you don’t stand out now for the right reasons you will get lost in the crowd. Create your brand and take your place in the market space. If you try to sell to everyone, you will sell to no one. Help your CBD company make a memorable and show them the professional touch they can expect from your CBD company at a glance.
What is the value of branding your CBD Oil company?
This provides your CBD customers with the perception of your company. It will give them an insight into your customer service to the quality of your products. Sloppy messages, poor logo design, and inconsistent branding equal to fewer sales. Why drive a ford if you can drive a Ferrari. Strong branding leads to a lasting impact and a successful company. It is more than a logo and the colors you pick.
What is CBD Oil branding?

Can CBD Oil help with insomnia or poor sleep?
Reliable CBD studies are growing in numbers. To date, CBD is said to help with insomnia and sleep issues but not directly. CBD could help you with the negative symptoms you are having that is causing you not to sleep. CBD could help you lower your stress and anxiety. If cortisol is not an issue then the natural melatonin your body produces can get to work and get you to sleep. If you take up the anti-inflammatory benefits of CBD then you could be in less pain. This means a night of better sleep. A night of better sleep means less stress, anxiety, and pain which means better sleep.
What dose of CBD oil should I use when going to sleep?
In smaller doses, CBD has been shown to help keep people alert. Reducing the day time need for naps means more melatonin is available at night which helps you to sleep. Taking larger doses of CBD at night works with your sleep cycle routine and when you fall asleep you are more likely to stay asleep and go through your REM and IREM cycles better. As always get in touch with us for advice and consult your doctor if in doubt.
How does stress affect the body?
A hormone called cortisol is released and your body goes into high alert. The fight mode and its this state of stress that affects your repository and cardiovascular systems. This stress hormone, cortisol, makes you breathe faster so your body is filled with oxygen. It does this so you are ready to fight off the attack that may come. However, it is a primitive response and responds to anything we deem stressful and thus is faulty. This stress reaction and cortisol can be additive to the body and when the hormone lowers we can have negative reactions. These reactions cause a great deal of mental and physical issues for us.

What is stress?
Stress is a very individual thing. We all experience stress in different ways. What I think is a mountain, you may see as a hill and visa versa. An 18-year-old will stress about their leaving cert or first job. An older adult may worry about losing a job and bills. The time we are in our life decides what stress is. It is how we learn to manage our own stress that matters. Just as the stress or triggers of stress are unique to you, so are the ways of dealing with them. Some typical examples of stress are –
-The death of a loved one.
-Moving to a new home.
-Loss of a job.

Why is stress so dangerous?
When stress occurs your body initiates a mental and physical response to deal with the threat it is facing. The constant action of increasing the blood flow, rising the blood sugar levels for more energy, and the influx of cortisol are dangerous. We cannot run at peak performance indefinitely and this is what the stress or fight response is about. Something has to give and the signs of your body not being able to cope so well are shown in many forms of disease and mental health issues.
How can I manage stress?
As a society, we tend to place little value on something that is free. We feel we must pay a large sum of money for something for it to hold value. We have to receive it from a GP o pharmacy for it to work. We tend to hold no worth on the following advice however they are free and they do work. Just like you didn’t get stressed out overnight you will not recover overnight. The negative process was gradual as will the positive. Try the following for at least ten minutes a day or place them as part of your mindfulness routine –

Where is the Endocannabinoid system located in the body?
The endocannabinoid system in some form in every part of your body. From the brain to the cells within your body this system forms the genetic makeup of you and without this system, you would not survive.
What is Hemp SEED Oil?
Hemp seed oil is often mistaken for CBD Oil as CBD comes from the Hemp plant however the Hemp seed oil contains NO CBD. It is a perfectly good seed oil that’s high in antioxidants, omega-3 and -6 fatty acids. People should be careful when buying CBD and make sure they are not buying Hemp Seed Oil.

Is CBD Oil Legal In Ireland?
CBD is legal in Ireland if it meets the FSAI guidelines and it contains no traces of THC. The EU law of 0.2% THC in Hemp does not translate to CBD.
How do I know if the CBD Oil I am looking at is legal?
Every CBD company in Ireland has to be registered with the Food Safety Authority of Ireland in order to sell CBD products for human consumption. CBD companies have to be registered with Revenue and comply with all other rules and regulations set by the state. If your supplier cannot register with these authorities you should be looking at why. Not being able to comply with the basic standards of Food Safety is a huge issue as you will be consuming these products. Cheap usually means fake and ask yourself why wouldn’t a supplier of CBD make themselves legal if their products are legal.
Will Taking CBD Oil Make You Feel Tired?
Yes and No. CBD works with your endocannabinoid system and helps maintain balance within the body. Your biological functions are higher and you are body is working hard to maintain this level of function. The metabolism to hormone production is much different and CBD will directly or indirectly help maintain this balance. At night the metabolism to hormone production is much different again and CBD will help to promote and maintain this balance.
There is no evidence to prove that CBD makes you tired. CBD users and the general industry agree you may feel more relaxed however knocking you off your feet during the day, no.
