How do I use the dropper to administer my CBD oil?
Many of our CBD oil products include a dropper, which helps administer your dose. We recommend that you take reasonable precautions in keeping the dropper clean to avoid allowing any bacteria to infect the dropper. Don’t let the dropper touch your mouth when placing CBD oil under your tongue, and don’t let it mix with any food or drink either.
How do I determine a CBD tincture dosage?
The best way to do this is to simply apply it under the tongue where it is then absorbed into the bloodstream.
For maximum effect, let the CBD oil set for as long as possible in order for maximum After a couple of minutes you can then swallow. To determine exactly how much CBD is in a dropper’s worth of oil, utilize the following formula:
[TOTAL CBD IN BOTTLE] ÷ [NUMBER OF MILLILITERS IN BOTTLE] = MGS OF CBD PER DROPPER
For example, if you have a bottle of 30mL CBD tincture that contains 1500mg of CBD:
1500MG ÷ 30ML = 50MG CBD PER DROPPER
While this method may not be 100% accurate, it is far more accurate than not measuring at all. And remember, always start small and work your way up.
What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a group of cell receptors within the body. It is a vast system of receptors that accepts our bodies' own endocannabinoids as well as the phytocannabinoids found in hemp. The ECS supports a variety of different bodily functions. When our naturally produced cannabinoids aren’t enough to help maintain the ECS, phytocannabinoids like CBD can help give it a boost.
What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are natural compounds found in both the human body and in the hemp plant. In fact, cannabinoids are the building blocks of many of your body’s natural functions. To date, scientists have identified over 80 natural cannabinoids.
Cannabinoids work within your body by interacting with the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS has receptors and uses cannabinoids to support a whole host of different bodily functions. However, when your body’s natural cannabinoids need a boost, that’s where CBD comes in. CBD is a phytocannabinoid.
Hemp actually consists of more than 80 different phytocannabinoids, including Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabichromene (CBC), and others.
What is a hemp extract?
An extract or a hemp extract is a specific concentration of hemp, prepared in a way to ensure that it is both clean and pure, and free from chemical additives.

What is the entourage effect?
The Entourage Effect describes what happens when you find a balance from taking full-spectrum CBD products.

How should I dose CBD Oil?
How you dose your CBD oil can depend on several different things, including your age, weight, height, and CBD oil tolerance. We typically recommend the low and slow method. Start with the lowest dose possible, and slowly work your way up until you find an amount that works for you. Typically, we recommend that new users try products within the 250mg to 500mg range while experienced users may want something more, which is why we have products ranging anywhere from 750mg up to 3500mg and beyond. Remember, you can always take more, but you can never take less.
A good rule to follow when determining an optimal CBD dose is to take anywhere from 1-6mg for every 10 pounds of body weight based upon the consumer’s needs. For example, a great starting dose for someone who weighs 150lbs would be somewhere between 15-25mg, and a 200lbs patient would range from 20 to 33mg.

Together they work in a synergistic way to produce the entourage effect in your body.
What is the difference between broad spectrum CBD, full spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate?
When a product label says full spectrum CBD, it means the extracted formula containing the full range of beneficial chemical compounds naturally occurring in the hemp plant; it produces no psychoactive effects, as it contains trace amounts of less than 0.3 percent THC, falling below the legal limit. In broad spectrum CBD, the beneficial chemical compounds are maintained from the hemp plant, while removing any trace amounts of THC. CBD isolate takes it one step further, removing all other compounds from the formula, leaving behind pure, unadulterated CBD in an isolate form at more than 90 percent cannabidiol.
