Our products are grown in the mountains in Switzerland, using clean mineral-rich spring water and only the minimum amounts of organic pesticides. They are fungicide free with no harmful contaminants.
All our oils come with a third-party lab report, a certificate of analysis. We receive one with our product from the manufacturer, tested by an independent Lab in Switzerland. When our order arrives, we also send a sample from every batch to an accredited test Lab in the UK to make sure the product fulfills our quality standards.
CBD oil that is taken sublingually (under the tongue) gives a good bioavailability as it’s absorbed directly into the blood. Ingesting the oil, adding CBD oil to your food will reduce the bioavailability as it needs to go through the digestive tract and liver first.
CBD oil comes in various different strengths and how long it will last depends on your need. For a person who has found the balance for a daily use of 20mg, the following can be used as a guideline for 10ml bottle (200drops); 2000mg CBD –10mg CBD each drop = 2 drops = 100 days
Our oils are only made from full-plant, EU approved hemp-derived CBD extract. There are many products on the market that are manufactured from CBD isolate, where pure CBD crystals are added to a carrier oil, to drinks, capsules etc. These products do not contain the full array of the cannabinoids and terpenes found in our extracts. If you are looking for THC free alternative, see our Broad Spectrum oil, this is the same Full-spectrum oil where the THC has been removed and it still contains many of the cannabinoids and terpenes.
There is no one rule for all. Depending on your weight, tolerance and other factors such as your situation. We always recommend the low, slow and steady approach. Many have good experience starting with just two drops (20mgCBD) under the tongue for 60 seconds, for the first week. Add just one drop (10mgCBD) per week if needed. This gives you a chance to see how you react to the CBD.
Hemp seed oil is made by cold pressing the seeds and contains no or little CBD. It is rich in protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and a mix of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. CBD oil is made from the flowers of the plant by extraction which contains all the cannabinoids as well as terpenes, phenols and flavonoids.
Some people may develop tolerance to CBD. It is therefore recommended to take a break from CBD about every seven months for approximately three days. Ref: Can Patients Develop a CBD Tolerance?
The Cannabis plant contains over 500 distinct compounds. The most distinctive are the cannabinoids with over 100 different compounds identified. The most well known are the CBD and THC. Other compounds include terpenes, flavenoids and omega fatty acids.
Cannabigerol or CBG is one of the most common cannabinoids in the Cannabis plant. Within the plant, it is present as CBGA and then converts into other cannabinoids as THCA, CBDA and CBCA as the plant matures. Because of this, the levels of CBG drop and eventually become very low. When decarboxylated, CBGA converts from an acid and becomes CBG. Like other cannabinoids, CBG interacts with the endocannabinoid system within our bodies and is present in our Full Spectrum CBD oils.
Terpenes are aromatic molecules and their presence in the cannabis plant is closely related to the freshness and temperature of the plant. The amounts may vary greatly due to cultivation and processing techniques. During processing/extraction stage, plants may have significantly less terpenes in the end-product than a whole plant cannabis product that has not gone through any sort of extraction process. The terpenes are responsible for the aroma of the plant and have therapeutic value in their own right. Similarly, terpenes are one of the many compounds found in essential oils and other plants like citrus fruit, flowers, pepper and spices.
Keeping a diary can be beneficial in your search for a good balance. As you start to use new oil or different strength, taking note of how you feel both physically and mentally can help with finding the right dose. Here is an example of a diary that you can download and use as you like: CBD Diary
