CBD does size matter?

When we look at the ocean of CBD products available, it is easy to get confused about what is what and what to choose. There are different types, Full Spectrum (the whole plant extract including THC), Broad Spectrum (THC removed) and Isolates, the pure CBD powder that is typically used for topical skincare and creams.

Then there is quantity, percentage, mg, ml, drops per bottle and drops a day.

Take for example; You pay  £ 87 for a 10ml bottle (200 drops) with 2000mg of CBD. Every drop contains 10mg of CBD (2000mg/200 drops = 10mg/drop) if you consume 30mg CBD/day your 10ml bottle will last 66 days or just over two months. Cost £ 1,33/day

Now we take a 30ml bottle (600 drops) with 2500mg of CBD. Every drop contains around 4mg of CBD (2500mg/600 drops = 4.16mg/drop) This bottle of same quality Full Spectrum CBD sells for £ 140 average and lasts for 75 days so your daily dosage of 30mg now contains 8 drops and cost you  £ 1.87/day

The effective way is to compare the quantity and quality of the CBD, not the carrier oil. Good quality CBD oil from the original extract will give you good value for your money.

Carrier oil, what is better for me?

MCT (Medium-chain triglycerides) is quickly and easily metabolized and used as energy, providing an almost immediate source of natural fuel instead of being stored in tissue as fat. Choose an organic product made from pure Coconut, not a Palm oil mixture.

Hemp seed oil, cold-pressed and comes from the seeds of the Hemp plant. Technically a nut, are very nutritious and has a mild and nutty flavor. Hemp seeds contain over 30% fat. They are exceptionally rich in two essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3) and a great source of vitamin E and minerals, such as phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc.

If you take 2-3 drops of CBD oil that uses either MCT or Hemp seed oil as a carrier oil, the dose is relatively small. Some like the taste of MCT oil and many love the texture of the nutty Hemp seed oil. Either way, both help our body absorb and process the benefits of the CBD oil.

CBD for Pets

Many of you are asking us if we have CBD for pets or if they can use our products for pets. In the UK, Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD) veterinary products containing Cannabidiol are veterinary medicines. Therefore “Marketing Authorisation” is a requirement for CBD products and the use of human CBD products to treat animals is not permitted. The full statement can be read using the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/vmd-statement-on-veterinary-medicinal-productscontaining-cannabidiol

The new Lighter Leaf website

Finally after some struggle to get our website from one host to another, we are back in the air. The reason for all out troubles is that in our business of promoting CBD products, even though completely legal they are not popular with the banks or the larger web hosting companies. This site is now secured with a free host (paid for but free from the industrial powers that want to have a say what is sold to the public). It is written on WordPress, that is open source platform and cannot be shut down and within few days or weeks we are adding a storefront that is supported by one of the few payment gateways that support our type of business. We hope to be up and running soon, thank you for your patience. Thank you for all the support and wonderful feedback. You can always contact us on our Facebook page or by email info@lighterleaf.com
