There are some bizarre wellness trends like vampire facials and apitherapy. Then, there are semi-normie things like crystal therapy and avocado toast. Lastly, there are beneficial self-care ingredients like CBD, which people have stigmatized.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, has been used in daily life for centuries (for over 10,000 years). Yet the incorrect information prevailing on the media and internet has paradoxically set us back.

Hence, we have taken it upon ourselves to inform our readers about CBD's truth. So, if you are considering buying hemp derived CBD products, read this blog and make the right decision.

CBD: An overview

The Cannabis Sativa plant contains a chemical substance known as cannabidiol or CBD. Besides CBD, several other cannabinoids exist in the Cannabis Sativa plant. It also includes the most famous compound – THC. THC is well-known for having a high effect on consumers.

However, the CBD products available in our store contain hemp-derived CBD. Hemp is another species of Cannabis Sativa that contains only trace amounts of THC. 

The 2018 farm bill legalized selling hemp and hemp-derived products. However, some states have legalized hemp with some conditions, and others have legalized it without any conditions. So, it is advisable to check whether CBD is completely legal in your state or not.

What are some basic facts about CBD?

  • CBD is among the many cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant

Apart from CBD, there are more potent cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant. In fact, 80 to 100 distinct cannabinoids have been identified, and around 300 non-cannabinoid compounds are also present.

Among all these cannabinoids, many of them are useful for various health conditions. As a result, full-spectrum CBD products containing a variety of cannabinoids create an entourage effect and provide several benefits.

  • CBD cannot get you high

We can hear the burning question in your mind: Can CBD get you high? No, it cannot. Unlike THC, CBD is a non-psychoactive compound as it interacts with different receptors of the body’s ECS than THC.

Now, you might wonder: What about our CBD gummies with THC? Usually, CBD products, including gummies, contain THC no more than 0.3%. This amount is not enough to get you high. Instead, it adds to the benefits of CBD. So, you do not have to worry about munchies or glassy red eyes.

  • CBD is effective in treating seizures

A recent study showcasing the effectiveness of CBD in treating seizures has fueled the popularity of hemp-derived CBD products. A viral video in the past showed that a child was experiencing and was given CBD midway, and the seizure stopped immediately.

Many people thought it to be yet another hoax. However, data from various studies proved that CBD can be helpful, and the FDA approved it for treating seizures in June 2018.

  • CBD is also beneficial for healthy people

Even if CBD is famed for helping with many health concerns, it does not mean it is solely for imbalanced health. In reality, CBD is a powerful ingredient for supporting wellness daily.

Our body has an Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which regulates several bodily tasks. In general, it is responsible for maintaining homeostasis, that is, balance in the body. When the balance is disrupted, your body shows the symptoms.

CBD interacts with ECS receptors and restores the balance in the body. So, you can take products like CBD gummies with THC daily and keep your body healthy and happy. Also, you can easily maintain optimal health because prevention is always better than cure.

  • CBD may benefit many people with serious illnesses

Many researchers have studied CBD for its potential benefits and uses. These studies have found that CBD may benefit people with the following health conditions:

  • Pain relief
  • Cancer treatment
  • Controlling epileptic seizures
  • Acne prevention
  • Anxiety relief

Apart from these conditions, you can use Sultan CBD products to improve hair health, help your dog with pet treats, and much more.

  • Pets can also benefit from CBD

ECS is also present in every animal. Even if the research on the interaction of CBD with ECS receptors is limited, numerous pet owners have seen an improvement in sick pets after giving them hemp-derived CBD products.

You can give CBD pet treats for a variety of purposes, including arthritis, anxiety, pain, obsessions, seizures, neurological disorders, trauma, digestive disorders, irritable moods, and social withdrawals.

CBD can take usually 30 to 60 minutes to work in your pet’s system, and the effects can last for around 4 to 6 hours. It is essential to note that these durations also depend on the pet size and dosage you give.

  • CBD can stall the negative effects of coffee

CBD is a sure-shot team player! It can work alongside many compounds, for example, caffeine.

According to a report by Statista, 74% of Americans drink coffee daily. Apparently, CBD has many benefits, like wakefulness, alertness, and attention. However, these benefits are sometimes accompanied by side effects like increased heart rate, anxiety, and agitation. If you enjoy multiple cups of joe per day, you might have also experienced them.

CBD can counteract the side effects of coffee. Its calming and anti-anxiety properties can help you enjoy your coffee without any worry about side effects.

You can add CBD oil or tincture to your coffee to get the ingredient's benefits. You can use the Sultan’s CBD infused coffee blend if you want a more convenient option.

  • CBD is non-addictive and safe

A few people have noticed some CBD side effects, including lethargy, low blood pressure, or diarrhea. However, most CBD users have not reported any significant side effects, and WHO has also declared CBD as a safe compound.

  • There is no universal dosage of CBD

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to using CBD products. The correct dose of any product depends on various factors:

  • Health condition
  • Genetic mutations within your ECS
  • Body requirements over time

These factors will decide how long CBD will take to work and the potency of its effects. 


Apart from these factors, the medications you take will also affect the dosage and effectiveness of CBD. Hence, you should consult your healthcare provider for CBD if you take any medications.
