Cannabidiol - Operations & Indications
Attention! Our new CBD shop is finally ready:
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is an active substance (cannabinoid) contained in hemp. There are a variety of different cannabinoids, which are characterized by the ability to connect to the corresponding cannabinoid receptors in the nervous system. There are various endogenous cannabinoids (called endocannabinoids) and cannabinoids contained in plants (called phytocannabinoids). CBD belongs to the second group and does not occur in the body. However, for hundreds of years, hemp has been a plant that has found a wide variety of uses and is therefore strongly associated with humans.
CBD is one of the main active ingredients in hemp. In contrast to THC, the psychoactive drug in cannabis, CBD is not intoxicating. On the contrary, the CBD even counteracts the intoxicating effects of THC. CBD also has a calming and relaxing effects, which can also be used to treat certain symptoms.
Many people would like to take advantage of this relaxing effect of cannabis without experiencing the state of intoxication associated with regular consumption.
For this reason, there are now many products that contain pure CBD, and thus specifically use the positive effects of the drug. And all without the psychoactive effect of THC.
CBD product types:
There are a variety of CBD-containing products. These differ on the one hand in the solvent (water or oil-based) and on the other hand in the CBD ammount that they cotain. This proportion ranges from small amounts in highly diluted solutions (1% CBD) to highly concentrated extracts in crystalline form (99% CBD).

The PhenoPen - the new way to inhale CBD
The PhenoPen is a pen vaporizer which can only be operated with special cartridges. These are filled under vacuum by robots. This guarantees a consistently high quality of CBD. Try it, you will be amazed.
Usage of CBD:
In general, CBD has a calming and relaxing effect without any major side effects. Accordingly, it can be used for symptoms caused by irritation and tension in the body. Areas of application include:
- Chronic Pain
- Nausea, Vomiting
- Movement disorders (dystonia, dyskinesia)
- Mental disorders (depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenic psychoses)
CBD can also be used to support cancer treatment. For example to alleviate the side effects of aggressive treatments, such as chemotherapy. Some scientific studies even suggest a growth-inhibiting effect of CBD in cancer cells.
Because of its minimal side effects and sedative effect, CBD is therefore suitable for a variety of ailments. Further areas of application can be discovered in our literature section.
Dosage / Use:
The dosage should take place in consultation with a treating physician in order to achieve an optimal result. The usual dose range is between 40mg and 800mg per day. Special attention should be paid to the reactions of your own body, as symptoms do not necessarily have to be the same every day. Due to the low side effects, the dosage can be adjusted accordingly to your own needs.
CBD exists in different forms. There are drops, capsules, oils, extracts and other types of isolated active ingredient. It should be noted, however, that the highest efficacy of CBD is achieved when it is heated before ingestion. The heating decarboxylates the CBD bound in CBD acid (CBDA). This produces CBD in its phenolic form, in which it is most effective.
That's why vaporizing the drug proves to be a very appropriate form of taking CBD.
CBD in the Vaporizer:
As already mentioned, the heating of CBD leads to increased effectiveness. For this reason, evaporation proves to be an optimal form of ingestion. The inhalation of active ingredients is a common form of absorption of active substances and has a rapid and direct transition into the bloodstream. Since vaporization in contrast to combustion specifically active ingredients can be solved, this method proves to be highly effective and gentle at the same time.
But not every vaporizer is suitable for vaporizing CBD. Since the extracts become liquid during evaporation, a suitable device is needed. Many vaporizers have special inserts in the form of oil capsules or drip pills. These are especially suitable for the use of oils and liquids and are available for a variety of devices. Some high-class devices, such as the sublimator, even have their own essays for the evaporation of oils and extracts. Pen vaporizers like the Puffco are very popular for mobile use. In an e-cigarette, a CBD liquid can be evaporated in different strengths.
CBD in the vaporizer, the temperature is the same as the THC, about 190 ° C + - 10 ° C.
Legality of CBD
Unlike THC and cannabis flowers, CBD is freely available in Germany. While a prescription for THC-containing products is needed by the doctor, CBD can be considered as a simple dietary supplement. This is also understandable, since CBD has no psychoactive effect or strong side effects.
CBD and the Problem with PayPal
In spite of the complete legality of CBD in Germany, payment services such as PayPal refuse to be available as a payment service for this product. Basically, all US-based payment services trade against CBD and THC, although legalization has been enforced in many US states.
This general attitude against the sale of CBD has already caused us some inconvenience. In order to continue to offer PayPal as a payment option, we had to remove all CBD products from our range. Otherwise, PayPal would have stopped any payment in our online store (including other products that have nothing to do with CBD).
The good news: We've created a special store for our CBD products. At Hanfstark you can order as usual all CBD products from our assortment. Just have a look.
