Frequently Asked Questions
Is “CannabiGold” CBD oil legal?
Yes. According to the WHO ECDD’s July 2018 recommendations, CBD should not be controlled because no psychotropic effects were identified.
Because of increased consumption of cannabis products around the world and sufficient scientific evidence about using hemp products for therapeutic and medical purposes WHO for the first time in July 2018 analyzed cannabis use and presented recommendations to the United Nations (UN). The full document of WHO in English is available here.
The Committee met on June 4th to 7th, 2018 and came to the following conclusions :
1. There was sufficient evidence to proceed to a critical review of cannabis and related substances at the next ECDD meeting in November 2018.
2. The ECDD recommended that preparations considered to contain pure cannabidiol (CBD) not be placed under international drug control as the substance was found to have no psychoactive properties and, as such, presented no risk of potential abuse or dependence.
Which hemp is used to produce CBD oil?
CBD Oil is obtained from fibrous hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) which has been used for many years in medicine and recreation. In traditional Chinese medicine cannabis is known as “the pain-relieving plants”.
What are the bioactive substances in cannabis?
Hemp contains three types of bioactive molecules – flavonoids, terpenes and cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are at the heart of most discussions because of the existence of a substance known as THC (with is one of 140 cannabinoids) that causes psychotropic effects such as euphoria and disorientation. Other cannabinoids (CBD) act mainly through the central and peripheral nervous system. They contain the highest number of CB1 receptors (which decrease the symptoms and the pain of depression and regulate appetite), but their effect is not psychoactive. “CannabiGold“ extract do not contain THC or contain less than 0.2%. Other cannabinoids do not have any psychotropic effects.
Extracts of “CannabiGold” do not contain THC or contain less than 0.2% (below the amount authorized by law). The other cannabinoids used have no psychotropic effects.
What cannabinoids are used for “CannabiGold”?
Cannabinoids can be divided into three groups: endocannabinoids that are synthesized by the human body; phytocannabinoids – found in cannabis; synthetic cannabinoids – synthesized in labs and used in the manufacturing of medicines. “Cannabigold” CBD oils are made from natural cannabinoids which are extracted from organic hemp material grown in the EU.
“CannabiGold” extracts contain the full spectrum of cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenoids naturally occurring in cannabis (incl. CBD, CBDA, CBC, CBG, CBDV, BCP). Acid phytocannabinoids decarbonize to the corresponding neutral forms. The process takes place when the plant is mature, but it is most active if the plant is heated after picking. CBDA is the dominant phytocannabinoid which is found in fibrous Northern species of hemp. (Cannabis sativa L.). During carbonization the CBDA acidic form turns into a neutral form of CBD. CBD weakens the potential of THC side effects.

What is CBD and what are its effects?
Cannabidiosis (CBD) is an endocannabinoid receptor CB1 agonist. It is an antitumoral agent and it facilitates catalepsy. It has an immunosuppressive, anti-inflammatory and antipsychotic effect. (Chakravarti B et al., 2014).
What is an endocannabinoid system?
It is believed that the endocannabinoid system is involved in the regulation of functions and processes like cognitive function, sleep, anxiety, depression, appetite regulation, addiction, neuroprotection, reproductive functions (fertility, embryo implantation and development), cardiac function and vasodilation, energy production and balance, peristalsis, endocrine and barrier functions of the intestine, immunomodulation, nausea and vomiting, eye pressure, bronchodilation, development of oncological diseases, bone remodeling, etc. (Zou et al., 2018).
Can hemp heal?
Therapeutic mechanisms for the treatment by cannabinoids have not been thoroughly investigated. But it is known that they work through the human endocannabinoid system which consists of endocannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors and endocannabinoid metabolism (Battista et al., 2006).
How strong is scientific research based on the use of cannabinoids as a natural anti-cancer drug?
Over the past decade, cannabinoids have been extensively studied and used in oncology. There are proven positive effects that suppress the development of cancerous processes and angiogenesis, accelerate the death of cancer cells, activate immune processes to relieve the symptoms of the disease, such as pain, anxiety, depression, exhaustion and lack of appetite. There is evidence that cannabinoids can very effective in patients with various forms of cancer and they can also be used in combination with other therapies (i.e. chemotherapy, radiotherapy) to reduce their side effects and to even increase the effectiveness of these treatments. In addition, cannabinoids are safer than opiates and provide much more effective pain suppression.
