How much should I take?
This is the most common question we get and the answer is, it is hard to say. They say the average adult dose is 25 mg. But that is a general guideline and it varies with each person. Every person has their own threshold with CBD and it also depends on the method of ingestion or application. The best answer we can give is to start small and increase as needed. You should always consult with your doctor if you are on medication. But if you choose to try it, the best way to determine your customized dosage is by starting at a low amount and increasing it gradually until the desired effects are met.
Does it have any side effects? Can I take too much?
Many small studies have shown CBD safety in humans, suggesting that it is well-tolerated at doses of up to a whopping 1,500 mg/day. From the patent that the US Department of Health and Human Services holds (regarding toxicity):
Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention.” – ‘Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants’ (Patent # 6,630,507) held by the United States Department of Health and Human Services
Studies have not found any significant side effects on the central nervous system, vital signs or mood with either light or heavy use.
Does CBD get you high?
No. CBD is sometimes confused with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the compound found in marijuana which creates a mental or body “high”. THC is also a phytocannabinoid, it also binds to the Endocannabinoid System in the body but it is important to know they are two very different compounds, with different properties and benefits.
While there are over 100 different cannabinoids, CBD has its own molecular structure that is not psychoactive. Most people have described their experience as feeling contented, clear-headed and composed. And while you can extract CBD from both marijuana and hemp, hemp has minuscule amounts of THC (<0.3%) in comparison.
Do I need a prescription or medical marijuana card?
Since our products use CBD sourced from industrial hemp, you do not need a prescription or a medical marijuana card.
Can I give CBD to my pets?
Yes! CBD works for all mammals the same way that it works for us, including dogs, cats, horses, etc.
