If the specific product is labeled as full-spectrum, the product has less than 0.3% THC, the legal standard for hemp products. If the specific product is labeled broad-spectrum, it contains 0.0% THC and is THC-free.
If you’re brand new to using CBD, I recommend starting with our 500mg Full-Spectrum CBD Oil. This is the perfect concentration for beginners, providing 16mg of CBD per serving. Additionally, this bottle can be used sublingually, topically, and as an edibles.
It is important that you take your time to discover your ideal serving size. Everyone responds to cannabis differently. It is recommended to start with a low serving size and work your way up, taking time to evaluate how you feel. For reference, the average starting serving size for an adult is between 10mg-20mg per day.
Use the recommended serving size on the product label once or twice a day, every day, for one week. Record your dose and evaluate how you feel using the Dose & Symptom Tracker that comes with your purchase.
Reassess After One Week…
Feeling great? Keep up with the dose that is working, or feel free to experiment as desired.
Not feeling it? Increase your daily serving size by 10mg-20mg each week until you meet your goals.
Remember: Many people find relief of their unwanted symptoms when they consume between 25mg-100mg of CBD per day. We are all different, be patient, and enjoy the journey to finding YOUR perfect serving size, or minimum effective dose.
There are three main ways you can use most of these products, sublingually, topically, and as an edible. We will review each one specifically below.
Sublingual, meaning under the tongue, involves holding the oil under your tongue to be absorbed. This method is preferred due to the high bioavailability rate of ~30%, ensuring more effective absorption into the bloodstream. The typical onset time starts between 15-30 minutes and the typical duration time lasts for 2-4 hours. For best results, we recommend holding the oil under your tongue or inside your cheek for 60-90 seconds, or for as long as possible.
Topical products or straight CBD oil can be applied directly to the skin at the place of discomfort for targeted relief. Unlike sublingual absorption, topical absorption does not introduce cannabinoids to the bloodstream. Topically applied cannabinoids interact with cannabinoid receptors on the skin itself, resulting in a ~30% bioavailability rate. You can use topicals as often as needed throughout the day. The typical onset time starts between 10-20 minutes and the typical duration time lasts for 2-4 hours.
Cooking with CBD can be fun & enjoyable, just remember that when the oil is simply swallowed, it passes through the digestive system and results in a ~10% bioavailability rate.
