Recently, people have been raving about hemp products. More specifically, CBD products. But why? In this article, we will briefly go over what CBD is and why so many individuals are so eager to supplement it. We will also discuss some of its benefits and how to find the right dosage.
Let’s begin with the basics; what is CBD?
Brief introduction to CBD:
Essentially, CBD is one of 113 cannabinoids found in both the Hemp and Cannabis plant. CBD is also referred to as cannabidiol. Higher quantities of CBD are more commonly found in the Hemp plant, hence why it is mostly extracted from Hemp. You may have heard of the popular cannabinoid THC, which is the compound in cannabis that gets you high. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it will not get you high. You can take as much CBD as you can and it will never result in any ‘high’.
CBD can be an amazing aid for many mental and physical issues just like THC. However, many individuals wish to get the benefits of THC without the often unwanted high that comes along with it. As CBD is non-psychoactive, it is also legal in most places in the world, unlike THC!

We believe that one of the best ways to supplement this versatility cannabinoid is via CBD drops. The reason being, it is one of the easiest ways to give yourself the exact dosage needed. CBD oil comes in all kinds of different strengths. Ranging from 2% to 15%. Taking CBD oil with a few percent of CBD is better than taking nothing. However, if you want to make it worth it, we always recommend taking at least 5%.
CBD oil is meant to be taken under the tongue. If you are taking small doses of CBD, it is fine to take it at any point in the day.
