General CBD Questions

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It’s one of over 113 naturally occurring cannabinoid compounds in the Cannabis plant. The flowers of cannabis (both hemp and marijuana) secrete a sticky resin abundant in cannabinoids like CBD, as well as terpenes and various other phytochemicals.

Compared to THC — the other main cannabinoid in the cannabis plant — CBD is non-psychoactive. This means that no matter how much you take, it’s not going to produce the characteristic “high” from marijuana.

CBD has also recently been categorized as a nutritional supplement in the United States — giving the public open access to CBD supplements.

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:

  • Neuroprotection
  • 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.

There are many different ways you can take CBD — and none of them are more effective than the others. The most popular method is via the mouth or sublingually with the help of oil, capsules, or our favorite — CBD-infused gummies.

CBD oils are the most versatile, as you can take your dose directly into the mouth, mix it in with food, or hold it under your tongue to speed up absorption.

The suggested daily serving size of our CBD oil is 5-50 mg CBD per day depending on your weight, and how CBD affects you individually.

We recommend starting at 1-6 mg of CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight  and increasing that by just a few mg each day until you get the desired results.

If you’re using our 250 mg oil, there are a total of 30 drops (servings) with 8 mg dose per drop, while our 500 mg oil has about 16mg per drop with 30 drops per bottle.
