Why is CBD oil so expensive?

Will CBD interact with my medication?

CBD reduces the activity of a liver enzyme (p450), that is responsible for the breakdown of many substances, like medication. CBD can lower blood pressure, which could become too low if other medication is being taken to produce the same results. Dizziness or weakness can be a result.

CBD can help keep blood sugar levels in check. We’ve heard that some people are able to use less insulin after having taken the oil regularly for a period. Keeping an eye on the blood sugar level is important when administering insulin together with taking CBD products. As far as we know the oil can be taken with any and all kinds of nutritional supplements.

Could I get addicted to CBD?

CBD oil is in no way addictive. Only THC, which is almost absent in CBD oil, has psychoactive potential, which the body will build up a tolerance for with time.  There is no sense of withdrawal when the oil is discontinued. CBD doesn’t have any psychoactive potential, however, it does influence several biochemical processes through which it can deliver its calming and soothing effects on mental well-being.

Can I take too much CBD?

The simple answer – like almost any other substance is “yes.” But, unlike other substances and supplements, the “but’s“ that follow that answer might surprise you. A study from 2011 study in Current Drug Safety, the “toxic” dose of CBD is somewhere around 20,000 mg (20 gr) of CBD, taken almost all at once.

It’s important to  to understand that the suggested starting dose for most conditions is somewhere around 5-50 mg per day. While studies have been done on dosages around 1500 mg per day, most tinctures contain between 100 and 1500 mg in an entire bottle. To read more on dosage please head over to our Dosage Guidelines page

That means that someone would need to ingest between 13 and 200 entire bottles of CBD oils  all at once, depending upon the concentration of CBD within the bottles.

Simply put: when taken at recommended doses, or, even above recommended daily doses, the average person does not need to worry about taking too much.

How long before I feel relief?

We are all different and we all have a different endocannabinoid system. Some people feel a difference already after a few days on CBD oil and others take a little longer to fill their deposits up. It is important to “start low and go slow”. CBD doesn’t not work like convention medication where you feel relief after 30 min of taking a dose, to then having to repeat after 4-5 hours.

Will I sleep better if I take CBD?

Some people sleep well on CBD, others don’t. It usually depends on the reason why sleeping is difficult. CBD can help relax the body and mind, and take away aches and pains so that sleeping becomes easier. On the other hand, some people notice an uplifting effect, giving energy which could make falling asleep a bit more difficult. Usually, once fallen asleep, the rest of the night is calm. Should you notice that falling asleep proves more difficult, then take your last drops of the day some 2-3 hours before sleeping. The energizing effect should pass, after which the calming effects should come through, aiding sleep.

Can I give CBD oil to my pet?

Dogs and cats react very well to CBD oil. The possible applications are numerous, ranging from epilepsy to arthritis to skin disorders. The metabolism of dogs is relatively high, which is a possible explanation of why results follow rather shortly after starting with the oil. The effective dosage is usually lower than needed for humans. The oil can be put straight into the mouth or rubbed on the gums. It’s important that it doesn’t get spit out. Some animals aren’t fond of the taste, so putting the drop(s) on a treat can be an option. Adding it to the water bowl is said to work in some cases, though the oil doesn’t mix with water, making it unclear if the uptake is efficient. Please find more information on our PET page!

How is the oil best stored?

The oil is best stored dark at room temperature. In the fridge, the hemp seed oil we use might solidify, making it harder to get out of the dropper. Heat and light will speed up the breakdown of certain cannabinoids, so this is best avoided. The oil lasts at least a year, but probably a lot longer due to a certain self-sterilizing effect from the cannabinoids. If in winter you find the oil to become too thick to get out through the dropper, heat the bottle in the palm of your hand for a few minutes, before taking your dosage

Does CBD come in powder form?

YES! CBD does come in powder form. It has many different names such as isolate, crystals, distillate etc. 75% of the powder form CBD on the market is pure CBD, meaning there are no other cannabinoids in.
