How To Use CBD Effectively
If you’re a new CBD user, it’s recommended to begin ‘low and slow’ to determine the dose that’s right for you. Normally, this will begin with 10mg daily. It normally takes 1-2 weeks of consistent dosing to feel the most effective results. Once you’ve discovered your ideal dose, you can lower or increase dosages when necessary.
How Is Our CBD Oil Manufactured?
Our CBD oil is manufactured with a CO2 extraction method. The hemp plant matter is processed through high pressurized carbon dioxide to isolate beneficial cannabinoids, plant nutrients and terpenes. This is the most common extraction method used for many herbal supplements and food items. Such as coffee and essential oils.
How Does CBD Work?
CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system — a complex network of receptors and neurotransmitters spread throughout the entire body. This system is tasked with regulating the balance of various organ systems.
The greatest abundance of these receptors is located in the brain, the central nervous system, and the immune system. Almost every organ in your body, including the skin and digestive tract, comes with cannabinoid receptors.
The endocannabinoid system controls a plethora of major biological functions, including:
- Immune response
- Sensory perception
- Stress management
- Cognitive performance
CBD works through the endocannabinoid system by increasing our naturally occurring endocannabinoids — thus helping the body maintain balance.
How long does it take to feel the effects of CBD?
CBD effect onset time will vary depending on the CBD product you’re using. Tinctures taken sublingually (under your tongue and held while absorbed) will normally deliver effects within 15-30 minutes. If digesting your CBD through an edible, like gummies or when mixing your tincture into a food or meal, effects will be felt within 1-2 hours. Topical effects are normally felt immediately, or within 20 minutes of applying.
What’s the proper way to store CBD products?
Because cannabinoids can degrade when exposed to light and heat, we recommend storing your CBD products in cooler-mild tempered, and dark spaces.
Is there an expiration date for CBD products?
CBD products when stored properly, have quite a long shelf-life. CBD products will remain good for 2 years, before expiring or losing their efficacy.
How much CBD should I take?
Your dosage will vary depending on the condition, ailment or effect you’re attempting to treat or achieve. We recommend beginning ‘low and slow’ and increasing your dosages, as you experiment with how the effects are felt. It can also be wise to keep a dosage journal, to see how you feel when increasing or decreasing doses. Just keep in mind, it is virtually impossible to ‘overdose’ on CBD, and very few negative side-effects are associated with use.
Does High Price Equal High-Quality CBD Oil?
CBD oils with a higher cost are normally of greater quality, yes, but not always. The price of CBD oil products depends on the quality of the plant matter that is being processed, and the type of extraction technique used. Some brands are able to offer high quality products at mid-range prices due to processing in bulk batches. To verify the quality or potency of your CBD oil, always check the third-party lab test results to ensure you’re getting what you pay for.
Will I need a marijuana card or doctor’s prescription to use cbd products?
No. CBD products with <.3% THC are legal in all 50 states, thanks to the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill.
What is the Entourage Effect?
The entourage effect is a term that is associated with the synergy of effects or benefits that come from CBD when other cannabinoids and plant matter are present. Put more simply, flavonoids, terpenes and plant nutrients all work together, to amplify each other’s effects. An entourage effect can be experienced with full-spectrum or broad-spectrum products, since they also contain plant matter and other cannabinoids. CBD isolate will not, as it only contains the CBD cannabinoid and no additional items.
How fast is shipping?
We deliver using USPS Priority Mail. Once your order is placed, you’ll typically receive your shipment within 3-7 business days. If you’d like to expedite your shipping, choose ‘next day’ or ‘2nd day’ delivery for an additional cost during checkout.
My USPS tracking looks different?
Standard delivery is received within 3-7 business days. Sometimes, USPS’s tracking system does not update quickly enough during the handling of the package. Often, they do not scan the packages upon pick-up and are sent to varied locations before reaching you. This may be why your USPS tracking number is not displaying accurate information. Rest assured, we’ll make up for any issue or mistake that is made by USPS during the shipping process.
Why am I being charged sales tax?
In certain states, in accordance with local laws, sales tax is required. Other states require a dietary supplement tax. The tax rate you’re charged is based upon the location of your shipping address or state.
Are your products lab tested?
Absolutely! Our third-party lab tests are published on our individual products pages in the image slider for ultimate transparency and confidence.
How much CBD is in each bottle of Oil Drops?
All of our CBD Oil Drops are 1 oz bottles. The higher the milligrams of CBD the higher the strength or more concentrated the bottle is. We use a .5ml as a serving size. Here’s a breakdown of CBD per serving in our products –
900mg Oil Drops – 30mg of CBD per .5ml
1800mg Oil Drops – 60mg of CBD per .5ml
What do you use for a carrier oil in your Oil Drops?
We use MCT Oil derived from coconuts. CBD is fat soluble so it is most effective when taken with a saturated fat. MCT Oil is also a great healthy fat our bodies use for energy.
I’ve never used CBD, where should I begin?
Overall, a recommended low dose to begin, is usually between 20 – 40 mg. To take your weight into account, many say 1-6 MGs per 10 pounds of body weight is a good equation to start with. Most experts advise raising doses by 5 mg at a time, after 1 week. Most of our first time customers begin with our 900mg Oil Drops and 10mg per day. On an empty stomach is best! Stick with the same dose once a day for the first week, then slowly scale up from there if necessary.
We recommend checking with your doctor before adding CBD to your daily regimen.
What is the difference between the Oil Drops and Chews?
Remember CBD works differently for everyone. The Oil Drops are full-spectrum while the Chews/Gummies are made with CBD isolate, isolates are THC Free. When you hold the Oil Drops under your tongue most of the CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream right away. You’re getting the full dose all at once. The chews need to go through your digestive system first which is a slower release process over time.
What is CBD?
CBD is an acronym for Cannabidiol (Can-a-bid-i-ol), a prominent naturally occurring class of molecules called cannabinoids found in the plant genus Cannabis Sativa L. CBD comprises up to 40% of the plant and is one of over 60 plus compounds found in cannabis. Of these compounds, CBD and THC are usually present in the highest concentrations, and are therefore the most recognized and studied. CBD is a non-psychoactive component of the plant that possesses a wide range of benefits and does not cause a high, unlike THC. Our bodies are made up of an endocannabinoid system and use cannabinoids to maintain healthy cells and according to researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered.
