How to use CBD
How much CBD should I take?
Due to the wide range of use-cases for CBD, appropriate serving sizes can vary widely. Your serving size will be dependent upon your body weight, metabolism, individual body chemistry, and other metabolic factors.
We cannot make specific recommendations regarding serving sizes. We recommend starting with a small amount of CBD, and gradually increasing the serving until the desired effects are achieved.
Is CBD psychoactive?
CBD meets the World Health Organization (WHO) definition of being psychoactive. The WHO defines psychoactive substances as substances “that, when taken in or administered into one’s system, affect mental processes, e.g. cognition or effect.”
However, while this may be the case for CBD, it must be noted that CBD is non-intoxicating in its effects. It does not produce feelings of euphoria, stupor, or loss of control; effects commonly associated with THC ingestion. Research suggests that this is due to the fact that CBD does not bind to the CB1 receptor in the same way that THC does. In fact, CBD has been shown in some studies to modulate or reduce the intoxicating effects of THC.
What is the difference between broad spectrum and isolate-based CBD?
Broad spectrum products are standardized to specific CBD potencies and due to the natural variation of plant extracts, the levels of other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids may fluctuate from batch to batch.
Isolate based products contain only the isolated CBD molecule and will also have no detectable THC.
