What are the benefits of CBD Oil and what dosage should I use
To abide by UK law we are unable to make medical claims or recommendations regarding the use of CBD Oil products.

How much CBD should I take ?
Recommended dosages are always included on our labels. As stated in the most recent FAC guidance update, no more than 70mg should be consumed daily.
How to Take CBD?
It depends on the form you consume it in! CBD oil is consumed sublingually, orally, or else it is vaporized. When you use it sublingually, you place the drops beneath the tongue and hold them there for 60 seconds or so. Oral consumption involves adding it to food or drink. Vaporizing CBD oil helps the CBD bypass the digestive system, and it gets to the bloodstream faster. As a result, the absorption rate is much higher. As stated in the most recent FAC guidance update, no more than 70mg should be consumed daily. In other words, you need less vape juice to get the same effect as CBD oil consumed sublingually or orally.
Are CBD products safe?
Once again, we would like to say ‘yes’ for definite, but it all depends on the quality of the CBD oil. If you are dealing with a reputable seller, you have little to worry about. In very rare instances, consumption of CBD oil may result in nausea, dry mouth, diarrhea, anxiety, mood changes, or drowsiness. In the unlikely event that you suffer from any of the above, discuss your symptoms with a doctor and discontinue treatment if necessary.
How long does CBD stay in your body?
In a study where the participants were made to take very high doses of the CBD oil for a period of 6 consecutive weeks, it was found out that the cannabinoid was out of their body system after just a week of not using it. Therefore, those that use the substance on a light to moderate level will find out that all traces of CBD is removed from their body system in about 3 – 5 days after the last dosage.
Note that the time which the substance will stay detectable in your bloodstream will be dependent on other factors such as the weight of the user and dosage applied. However, a week is the maximum length of time for which it will stay detectable under test conditions.
What drugs should not be used with CBD?
Before you use your CBD with any other drug, you should always speak with a medical health professional first. They will be in the best place to tell you if it is a good idea to adjust your medication plan to fit in the CBD oil or whether you’d need to take out some medications first. That being said, some of the common medications will interfere with your CBD usage.
What are the side effects of CBD?
Cannabidiol is one of the safest substances that can be consumed by adults with little to no side effects. In fact, some studies have recorded the heavy use of the substance (up to about 300 mg daily) for a period of 6 months without the development of side effects in the users. However, some CBD users have reported cases of dry mouth, low blood pressure, drowsiness and light-headedness. Different strokes to different folks.
How do I use CBD oil?
You have different usage methods to consider here. The oils can come in form of capsules and pre-made edibles that you can either consume as is or add to your food and drinks. Some people prefer to use the oils in form of tinctures, allowing the placement under your tongue or inside food and drinks too. Likewise, you can enjoy CBD oil by vaping it. The importance of this method is that you get all the benefits you want from the oil without all the side effects of smoking.
What is meant by full spectrum CBD?
Full spectrum CBD is the term used to refer to the cannabidiol that has not been separated from all other cannabinoids that are present in the cannabis plant. In other words, when used, you will get amounts of THVC, CBN, CBG and a host of all others inside the same substance.
What is isolated CBD?
Unlike the full spectrum variant, the isolated CBD is one that has been extracted from the marijuana plant and then purified to an extent that it contains only CBD and no other cannabinoids.
What is the difference between CBD oil and Hemp Oil?
It must be confusing to get results on both CBD oil and Hemp oil when you search for either one of the two terms. Does that mean that they are one and the same? Absolutely not. While they are surely similar in some ways, there are important differences to note between them. The first difference between these two is in where they are obtained from. Hemp oil is a component of the plant called hemp. The oil is either extracted from the seed or flower and is guaranteed to have a minimal level of psychoactive ingredients in it. CBD oil, on the other hand, is extracted from the seeds, leaves and stalk of the cannabis or hemp plant. It has become popular due to its numerous well-being properties.
How often should I take CBD oil?
The frequency at which CBD oil should be used, differ from person to person and what their condition is. Where the confusion sometimes sets in is in the dosage requirements of different brands. Some brands suggest to take way more and others advise users to take way less. There is bound to be some incoherence. If you didn’t get your CBD with a dosage, it is advisable to start off with two drops on the first day – one in the morning and the other in the evening.
For the first 3 – 4 weeks, switch to about 4 drops per day. Don’t take all of it at once but by spreading them over the entire course of your day. You should start to feel effects from at this stage.
Should the effects not be as complete as you desire, increase the dosage slightly until you achieve your objective.
How can I store my CBD oil?
There are different suggestions to this. The most ideal way to store the substance is by putting it in a bottle that is set up in an upright position. This bottle should then be kept away from extreme temperatures, sunlight and even moisture.
You can also store your oil in a refrigerator. It is believed that this mode of storage improves the shelf life of your CBD oil. Should the oil get cold, you are advised to run the bottle under warm water for a while so that it thaws out.
What is CBD salve?
Using the word ‘salve’ with CBD can cause a lot of confusion while in fact, there is nothing to be confused about. The next time you see the word being used, know that it can be used interchangeably with ‘balm’ and ‘ointment.’ CBD salve – or any other way you prefer to call it – are thus topical CBD products that should be applied on the skin.
What does CBD oil taste like?
No matter what mode of consumption you resort to for your CBD oil, you will still observe the underlying characteristic taste of the cannabinoid. That is a result of the combination of organic compounds that make up the plant’s profile in addition to terpenes and other nutritious materials in it. That being said, the taste of CBD oil has been described by many as being either of nutty, grassy or earthy. While some people will naturally like the taste, it is usually what a larger set of users grow into over the course of time of usage.
How long does CBD oil stay good for?
When left bottled and unopened, CBD oil will usually last a total of 14 months on the average with little to no noticeable changes. When you have opened the bottle, you can usually make the contents last for another six months. To get the best shelf life for your product, you should adopt the following practices:
Store in a cool, dark place
