CBD Frequently Asked Questions
What is Full Spectrum CBD Oil?
Full Spectrum CBD oil includes all cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids found in the hemp plant, unlike CBD isolate, which only has CBD. Many of these compounds are being actively researched and are believed to work alongside CBD to boost its effects—addressing concerns like stress, anxiety, sleep issues, and arthritic or chronic pain. Scientific studies have shown that the synergistic effect of combining these compounds enhances the benefits of CBD.
How do I take CBD oil?
Use the dropper to measure your determined dose and apply it under your tongue. Hold the oil under your tongue for at least 30 seconds to allow absorption into the bloodstream before you swallow. Once you swallow, normal digestion breaks down the oil, and you don’t get as much CBD into your bloodstream.
Is there a flavor or scent to the oil?
Yes, natural oil has an herbal scent and flavor, but MCT Coconut oil does not have a flavor. If you prefer a different taste, we also offer almond, mint, and maple flavored CBD oil.
Why do you use MCT Coconut oil?
We use MCT Coconut oil as a carrier to effectively deliver CBD oil into your system. MCT Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCT), which are easy to digest and offer various benefits. These benefits include promoting weight loss, providing quick fuel for your body and brain, reducing lactate buildup, combating yeast and bacterial growth, and effectively lowering cholesterol levels.
What is a dose?
1 dose is 1mL. Think of a 30mL bottle as 30 doses.
You can take a ¼ dose, ½ dose, full dose, or more doses each day to reach your daily intake of CBD.
What are the potency options?
500mg in a 30ml bottle divided by 30 doses = 16.67mg /dose
1000mg in a 30ml bottle divided by 30 doses = 33mg/dose
2000mg in a 30ml bottle divided by 30 doses = 66mg/dose
What dose do I start with?
Generally, a good starting point for the average 120-180 lbs. individual is 8mg for minor issues up to 16mg for larger issues. After a few days, you can increase how much CBD you take each day until you reach the amount that resolves your issues.
How much will I need to take?
Depending on your symptoms and severity, anywhere from 10mg to 100mg is common for a daily dose. Many people find that a daily dose of 30mg to 50mg works well for them, but some individuals need much more than 100mg. Please consult with your physician for their recommendation.
How long until I see benefits?
If taken on an empty stomach, you might notice a reduction in anxiety and restlessness as quickly as within an hour. Typically, it takes a week for CBD to build up in your body. In some cases, especially for more severe issues, it might take up to two weeks of consistent usage, potentially requiring higher doses to achieve the desired effects. Keep in mind that individual responses can differ, so patience is key.
Can you overdose?
There are no recorded incidences of overdosing on CBD. You can take too much of anything, including water, but rest assured, it would cost way too much to get there on CBD.
