How much CBD should I take?
It's not an easy answer, everyone will react and respond differently to CBD. We recommend starting low and going slow, titrate up until you find your perfect daily dose.
What are cannabinoids?
There are over 100 plant derived cannabinoids as well as naturally occurring endogenous cannabinoids that your body produces naturally. These molecules that interact with your endocannabinoid system to support homeostasis.
The Entourage Effect
When CBD and other cannabinoids like THC combine together, they create a synergistic effect called the entourage effect which promotes a greater response at a lower dose. By choosing a Full Spectrum product, you're getting a full profile of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids that contribute to the entourage effect.
The Endocannabinoid System
What is it and what does it do?
This exists in all our bodies and our pets bodies - it's a series of receptors that exist in the brain, nervous system and every organ system. The main purpose of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain homeostasis and keep your body in balance. This system can influence mood, sleep, hormonal balance and even neuroprotection.
Breastfeeding and CBD
Is it safe?
There is little clinical data available on this question. Cannabinoids like CBD and THC can be present in breast milk, but it's important to consider the relative infant dose. Endogenous cannabinoids may also present in breast milk naturally.
Hemp vs. Marijuana
What's the difference?
The difference between the two is strictly a legal definition. A cannabis plant that has 0.3% THC or less by dry weight is considered hemp, any plant with higher THC content would be considered Marijuana.
Will I fail a drug test?
The short answer is… maybe. It depends on the type of product you're using. It's important for you to check the COA on your product to see if there's THC in the product you're using. Isolated and Broad Spectrum CBD will not make you fail a drug test. Full Spectrum ingestible CBD products could accumulate enough in your body where you could fail a drug test.
CBD and Children
Can I give CBD to my kids?
More data is needed, however the FDA has previously approved a CBD product for children with severe seizure disorders. There are currently several ongoing trials looking at CBD usage in children, specifically Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD and other health issues.
