Frequently Asked Common Questions About CBD Oil
Each bottle contain approx. 250 drops of oil. With the average user dosing 3 drops 2-3 times a day a single bottle should last a month.
All our products use full spectrum extracts, but what does this mean?
In Cannabis extract, there are hundreds of cannabinoids, terpenes and other compounds which all make up the plant. Each compound plays a part – as nature intended – in giving the final product its effectiveness and potency (see “what is the Entourage Effect”). When we produce products using all of the compounds present, this is called “full spectrum”.
It is well known and documented that full spectrum products are more effective than “isolate” based products, or even “broad spectrum” CBD oils we are now seeing on the market.
Isolate based products means they use pure CBD – usually around 99% pure. This may sound impressive, but the white isolate powder used is a far cry from anything related to a plant. Isolate products are cheaper to produce and are simply not as effective.
As for “broad spectrum”, this usually means you’ll see a handful of cannabinoids present, but little else. Again, the drawback is these are not as nature intended and do not offer the quality and effectiveness of full spectrum products.
Yes! CBD and CBG have been naturally occurring in cannabis and hemp plants for millennia. Preparations containing both of these compounds have been safely made and ingested for longer than recorded history. These two compounds have a lot of similarities, yet their natures are slightly different.
While CBD has a relatively low affinity for cannabinoid receptors and interacts mostly with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) on an indirect basis, CBG is thought to interact directly with the brain’s CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors.
