One of the comments we hear frequently from prospective clients is...
Which always makes us think “what CBD did you take!?” One friend sent us a pic of the bottle and it's no wonder she didn't feel it worked for her. The serving sizes were confusing and it also contained several other ingredients that made the oil less effective. So, wen wanted to break it down and make it easy for you to understand!
As outlined in a post by MarijuanaBreak, Harvard Medical School’s Dr. Peter Grinspoon recently published an article for Harvard Health Publishing about the potential therapeutic benefits of CBD. In it, he points out that one of the most difficult aspects of understanding CBD dosing is that the compound is not currently recognized as a medicine (the changes in the new 2018 Farm Bill may remedy this!)
Because of this, most products are forced to be marketed as “supplements,” which the FDA does not regulate. Hence, why there is no consistency in labeling in products on the markets
Any bottle of CBD oil that you buy should clearly state both the amount of CBD that is contained in milligrams (mg), and the total amount of liquid that’s in the bottle (in mL). That's one of the biggest problems with choosing CBD is that many bottles have confusing labeling.
Labeling on bottles can be ambiguous either because of the sensitivity of credit card processors, retailers, and marketing or they are selling some sort of snake oil. We disclose how much CBD per bottle as a bold number (i.e. 600, 1200, 3000)
In order to figure out how much CBD you’re actually getting with each dropper, here’s a simple equation you can use:
[Total CBD in Bottle] ÷ [Number of mL in Bottle] = Total milligrams (mg) CBD in Dropper
For example, let’s say you have a 30mL CBD tincture with 600mg of CBD. Here's how you would break that down:
600mg ÷ 30ml = 20mg of CBD per dropper
Yes, we know it's confusing which is why we wanted to put this into a blogpost! The following chart gives you an idea of the amount of CBD that's in each of the brands we carry:
This chart gives you a general idea of suggested amounts based on your condition & weight. Always start slow and increase the dosage until you find the amount that's right for you.
Here are a few guidelines to help you make your decision about which CBD brand is best for YOU:

…we have now available CBG (cannabigerol) which is another cannabinoid that has medicinal value – so it’s an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant, it’s a bone stimulant, it’s anti-cancer proliferation.
Normal aging occurs when our bodies replace aging cells with healthy ones at a decreased rate. Increased aging happens when our body, especially our skin, is exposed to the sun’s radiation, environmental toxins, and pathogens (namely bacteria, fungi, and viruses). Remember learning that our skin is our largest organ? Exposures from our environment and what we consume boil down to an alteration (mutation) in our basic DNA structure. Our exposures to sunlight and all the others are accumulating while we age. That’s why the seven (7) signs of aging appear!
