Are You New to CBD?

Are you new to CBD and extremely confused about which product and dosage is right for you?

Not to worry, as we have created this page to answer all the questions you need to get started.

Before we begin we do understand a lot of people are coming here for serious medical issues and while we will do our best to help you we are not medical professionals and therefore cannot give medical advice or make claims that CBD can help or cure any ailment. What we as experts can do is advise on what CBD product is best for you.

Which CBD product is correct for me?

For the most part, Full-Spectrum CBD oil is the optimal way to supplement CBD.

In some circumstances, a person does not like the taste and therefore we advise trying CBD Gummies or CBD Capsules which can be chewed or swallowed immediately.

If you are looking for extremely potent CBD oil, the highest strength oil we can create is 30%. This is because if it is concentrated anymore the oil solidifies. You will be happy to know that this is a sign of a good full-spectrum product.

To get higher potencies we advise using our CBD Paste. We have concentrations of 40% and even 80% paste for customers to achieve a high potency dose daily.

If you want to target a specific area of the body, then we advise using our CBD Muscle & Joint Cream. To optimise the effect of this product, we suggest using it alongside an oral CBD oil. This way you can target the specific area both internally and externally.

Finally, if you want CBD for your pet, we have created a specific formula for your furry friend which includes all cannabinoids present in the hemp plant and salmon oil for a tasty, pet-friendly flavour.

What strength should I start with?

As mentioned previously, for the most part Full-Spectrum CBD oil is the optimal product for CBD users. But which strength is best for you?

For most people starting out, our 10% Full-Spectrum CBD Oil is the perfect product. We suggest starting with this one as a baseline and if you need to move up you will know after a few weeks of use.

The only real reason to move up in strength is if you are taking high doses daily and your bottle is running out quickly. For example, the recommended starter dose for our 10% CBD Oil is 25mg of CBD (25mg = 5 drops) This means there is 5mg of CBD per drop in our 10% Full-Spectrum Oil.

If you feel after a few weeks this is not a strong enough dose and 50mg works better for you, this equates to 10 drops of the 10% Full-Spectrum Oil.

In our 10-mil bottle, there are 200 drops which means you will get 20 doses in each tincture. Most people at this stage will just move up a strength and use fewer drops daily.

For example, the next strength is 20% CBD oil. Again, there are 200 drops per bottle but this time each drop contains 10mg of CBD. Now you only need to take 5 drops per dose and the bottle will last 40 doses.

Another reason for taking a higher strength is that some people don’t like the taste of hemp, so the less oil going into your mouth the better!

For Pets 

Pet Dosage – Guidance

  • Below 20kg: 2.5% Pet Oil – 6 drops per dose
  • Between 20 – 50kg: 5% Pet Oil – 4 drops per dose
  • Above 51kg: 10% Pet Oil – 3 drops per dose

Drops should be continuously administered for 4 to 6 weeks for best results

What dosage should I start with?

We advise starting with a baseline of 25mg of CBD per day.

If you are using the 10% CBD oil this equates to 5 drops of CBD each day.

We do suggest increasing by one drop a week until the desired effects are reached for you as an individual.

We also advise taking your CBD supplement every day for at least 3 weeks to allow the CBD cannabinoid to build up a supply in your system.
