WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED USE OF CBD?
CBD dosage is dependent on the formulation of the CBD you have procured. Generally, our products contain 20% drops, each containing 7mg of CBD.
It is best to begin with a lower dose, and gradually increase whilst monitoring your responses as you gradually increase to an optimum dose.
Every person will have individual results and responses with CBD, and the benefits can be subtle at first.
Each human has a unique physiological make up, resulting in varied dosage from person to person. Ultimately you must discover your specific dosing regimen by increasing slowly over time to reach a comfortable dosage where you feel the most relief. For most people, this is approximately 2-3 drops three times per day.
EXAMPLE DOSE – BEGINNING
Start with one drop once a day
After 3-5 days, increase to one drop three times a day
After 3-5 days, increase to two drops three times a day
EXAMPLE DOSE – HEALTH ISSUES
After beginning as above, stay on two drops three times a day until you have been using CBD for about 3 weeks, to feel how it is working for you.
If necessary, continue to gradually increase the dosage to where you feel the most relief.
Increase to three drops 3 times a day.
After another week, increase to four drops 3 times a day, etc.
If you increase and feel not much additional relief is obtained, reduce back to your previous dose. This becomes your ‘maintenance’ dose.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TAKE CBD OIL?
It is recommended to take your CBD three times per day, with around 3 hours between doses, however some people may feel that taking CBD only once per day is right for them as a maintenance program.
It’s also best to consume the CBD on an empty stomach, to avoid the stomach acids breaking down the CBD before it is absorbed.
IS MORNING OR EVENING BETTER FOR TAKING THE CBD DOSE?
Our recommended dosage regime would include both morning and evening, however as previously mentioned, it is important to find out what works best for your unique self.
Raw CBD can feel more uplifting, and therefore some people find this product more suitable for a morning dosage. Whereas the CBD decarb is generally found to be more calming, and therefore beneficial for sleep and relaxation.
Whichever you choose, you will find the suitable maintenance dosage for your system.
IS IT BETTER TO SWALLOW OR HOLD UNDER THE TONGUE ?
As with many medicines, placing CBD under the tongue for 1-2 minutes is recommended, as this provides the maximum absorption via capillaries in the mouth.
Immediately swallowing CBD Oil may offer less absorption due to the acids in the stomach breaking it down before it is taken up by the body.
Some people find that swallowing CBD Oil can leave a harsh taste at the back of the throat. By holding it under the tongue and letting it absorb gradually, this is minimized. Another solution for those who find the taste harsh is to follow it with a light snack, or a spoonful of honey.
HOW LONG WILL A BOTTLE OF CBD LAST WHEN OPENED?
For ideal longevity, store your CBD oil in the fridge, and it will last for months. When exposed to sunlight or direct heat, the potency may be reduced.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD & CBDA?
The cannibas/hemp plant in it’s natural state produces CBDA & CBD, which are natural chemicals called Cannabidiols. When heated ( decarboxylated ) CBDA becomes CBD. For example, if you juiced the raw cannabis plant material you would have CBDA & CBD, however if you heated it you only have CBD.
IS CBDA BETTER THAN CBD ?
Cannabinoids work together synergistically, which is called the entourage effect. Our products contain CBD, CBDA, and over 400 other natural compounds such as terpenes, flavonoids & photo-nutrients. Some customers feel varied results from CBD to CBDA. This doesn’t mean one is better than the other, but rather that you need to find what is right for your system, and the issue you are treating.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RAW & DECARB CBD PRODUCTS
RAW products contain the full range of cannabinoids and terpenes, whereas the Decarboxylated products have been heated to decrease the amount of acid groups (CBDa to CBD, CBGa to CBG etc.). Therefore, The difference between RAW and Decarb is the heating process. As mentioned in previous information, some customers feel a difference between the two options and individuals are encouraged to choose what feels right in their system.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE OIL AND THE PASTE?
Both the oil and the paste are full extracts from the hemp plant, however the oil has been through an additional filtration process which removes some of the natural paraffin and waxes. Generally speaking, the only difference between the two is the texture. When holding the extract under the tongue, the oil will break down more easily in comparison to the paste, and the effect of the CBD will appear more quickly in the body.

DOES CBD HEMP OIL SHOW UP ON A DRUG TEST ?
It may be possible for CBD to appear on a drug test if you are taking very large doses (above 1000-2000mg per day) due to the minute traces of THC that could build up over time.
Factors such as differing body weight, metabolic rate and other lifestyle factors contribute to the possibility that cbd oil containing as little as 0.02% THC could show up in swabs, blood or urinalysis. Patients must determine for themselves if the severity of their condition outweighs this risk.
