What is Oxyoil?
OxyOil is the patented process that binds oil molecules with water so that our bodies can absorb them faster and more efficiently. Having OxyOil in our products allows the CBD to bypass the liver for processing and gives it maximum strength directly where you need it most.
What is the correct dosage for CBD?
CBD dosing varies for each person depending on their body chemistry, medications, body weight, and the issue they are treating with CBD. Assuming your CBD is from a reliable and trustworthy source utilizing non-synthetic CBD and you know how much CBD is in each dose of the product you are taking, most people do well starting with anywhere between 20 and 40 mg of CBD per day. You can gradually increase this dosage by 5-10mg per day until you feel relief from the symptoms you want to treat. Studies have also found that taking up to 1,500 mg have not caused any overdose symptoms, so you can breathe easy on that front.
What is CBDA?
The ‘A’ in CBDa is an acid precursor to CBD. This means that CBDa must be heated in order to become the CBD as we know it today. For years CBDa was thought to simply be a predecessor needed to obtain CBD isolate but recent studies have found that CBDa actually has more therapeutic qualities than CBD. This is why we are thrilled to be able to offer CBDa in our product line!
What are terpenes?
Terpenoids, also known as terpenes, are naturally occurring oily substances found in the Cannabis plant that give the plant its unmistakable aroma. There are many different terpenes that can be present in differing amounts for each individual strain, and each terpene combination has its own therapeutic effects.
What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are compounds made naturally in the human body and are also found in the Cannabis plant (which is where CBD comes from). While there are over 540 chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant itself and over 100 cannabinoids have been identified, the two most common ones are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).
Will I get high using CBD?
Unlike its well known cousin, THC, CBD has no psychoactive properties and is very safe to use. Some of the effects of using CBD include mental clarity, relaxation, pain relief, and anxiety relief.
What does ‘full spectrum’ mean?
Our CBD is harvested and processed in a way that preserves as many of the natural phytochemicals as possible. These include the many terpenes, essential oils, and cannabinoids such as CBD and negligible amounts of THC (0.3% or less).
What’s that smell?
The Cannabis plant is known for its very distinct smell that is often associated with marijuana and THC. The various terpenes found in the plant are what give it the unique perfume. If you enjoy smoking CBD you will find that each strain has its own unique blend of terpenes and a slightly different aroma profile that offer varying benefits.
Where does CBD come from?
CBD comes from the flower of the hemp plant. Our primary CBD processing method is CO2 extraction, this preserves as many of the naturally occurring terpenes, cannabinoids, and essential oils as possible.
