HOW TO STORE

If you store your CBD Oil in the fridge your CBD will last for months after opening. Exposing it to heat or direct sunlight for a prolonged time it’s potency may reduce. For this reason we send out all our bottles express so that it stays the least amount of time in transit.

USAGE:

  • A – guidance on Admix products containing coconut oil (1000mg -50ml bottle), 2000mg -100ml bottle, 3600mg  -100ml bottle)
  • B – guidance on 2000mg – 10ml bottles 20% CBD
  • C -guidance on CBD Paste

 

A) HOW MUCH CBD TO USE – Admix CBD 

The following are the Admix product strengths being sold – The CBD oil is mixed with natural coconut MCT (medium chain triglyceride ) oil giving you the added boost and helping the CBD get into your system fast.

  1. 1000mg CBD would offer you 20mg of CBD per 1ml dose
  2. 2000mg CBD would offer you 20mg of CBD per 1ml dose
  3. 3600mg CBD would offer you 36mg of CBD per 1ml close

You should always start with a low dose and gradually increase.

Start Low, Go Slow

Each person is different and the benefits of CBD are often subtle and hard to detect at first. Every human has a different physiological make up, that’s why the dosage can vary from person to person. In the end, you must discover your own dosing regimen by titrating (increasing slowly over time) up to the dosage where you get most relief. Generally, for most people, this is somewhere around 1ml three times a day.

Increase or reduce dosage as needed.

DOSING EXAMPLE – STARTING

  • Start with 10mg CBD once a day
  • After 2-3 days, increase to 15mg  a day divided in 2 doses
  • After 4-5 days, increase to 20mg a day divided in 2 doses
  • After 5-6 days, increase to 30mg a day divided in 3 doses

If necessary, continue to titrate up to find the dosage where you get the most relief.  If you increase and after about a week you feel that not much additional relief is obtained, reduce back to your previous dose
This becomes your ‘maintenance’ dose.

If following the above this would mean

  • if purchased the 500mg = 1ml would give 10mg of CBD
  • if purchased the 1000mg = 0.5ml would give 10mg of CBD
  • if purchased the 2000mg = .05ml would give 10mg of CBD
  • if purchased the  3600mg = 0.3ml would give approx 12mg CBD

Your own research may suggest a different CBD mg requirement per day which can be catered for by getting the appropriate CBD potency from our shop.

B ) HOW MUCH CBD TO USE – 2000MG in 10ml Bottle

The product contains  7mg-8mg of CBD per drop. You should always start with a low dose and gradually increase.

Start Low, Go Slow

Each person is different and the benefits of CBD are often subtle and hard to detect at first. Every human has a different physiological make up, that’s why the dosage can vary from person to person. In the end, you must discover your own dosing regimen by titrating (increasing slowly over time) up to the dosage where you get most relief. Generally, for most people, this is somewhere around 2-3 drops three times a day.

Increase or reduce dosage as needed.

DOSING EXAMPLE – STARTING

Start with one drop once a day
After 3-5 days, increase to one drop three times a day
After 3-5 days, increase to two drops three times a day

DOSING EXAMPLE – HEALTH CONDITION

After starting (see above), stay on two drops three times a day until you have been using CBD for about 3 weeks
Review and assess: See how it is working for you

If necessary, continue to titrate up to find the dosage where you get the most relief
Increase to three drops 3 times a day
After another week, increase to four drops 3 times a day, etc
If you increase and after about a week you feel that not much additional relief is obtained, reduce back to your previous dose
This becomes your ‘maintenance’ dose

C ) HOW MUCH CBD PASTE TO USE 

Take a small amount on your finger and place under the tongue and hold there for as long as possible.

If you find the taste unpleasant you can mix it with fatty foods such as avaocado or butter and spread it on bread.

As mentioned in part A and B, we recommend using the up-titration method when using our CBD Oil Paste. This method is a tried and tested way to gradually increase the dose to find your perfect balance. Start Low, Go Slow!

Always keep your CBD Paste in the refrigerator.

HOW TO INGEST

We recommend placing CBD oil under the tongue and holding it there for 1-2 minutes.  This gives you the maximum absorption through the capillaries in the mouth (sublingual absorption).

If you just swallow CBD Oil you may have less absorption since it will be broken down by the acids in your stomach or metabolised by your liver.

Swallowing CBD Oil can leave a harsh taste at the back of your throat. By holding it under the tongue and letting it absorb gradually you can minimise this. If you find the taste harsh, follow it with a light, fatty snack, such as a cheese or buttered cracker.

CAN I TAKE CBD WHILE I AM PREGNANT

We advise not to take CBD when pregnant. This is more as a precaution and your decision should always be made with the advice of a qualified medical practitioner.

DOES CBD HEMP OIL SHOW UP ON A DRUG TEST

When you are drug tested at work they use a urine sample to check for the presence of THC metabolites. (Tetrahyrdocannabinol)In a roadside test it is a buccal swab and if failed a blood test is used to determine the presence of THC metabolites.

THC-COOH, and THC-11-oic acid are formed in the liver after the body has consumed cannabis and it is these chemicals that are tested when you go for a blood or urine test. THC-COOH doesn’t have much cross reactivity to the other non psychoactive cannabinoids such as CBD.

If you are taking whole plant hemp oil,there are small amounts  of THC that could build up in your system. Due to differing body weight, metabolic rate and other factors it is possible that cbd oil containing as little as 0.02% THC could show up in swabs, blood or urinalysis.  Customers must determine for themselves if the requirement for CBD outweighs this possibility.  We will soon be introducing a pure CBD product which will negate this concern.
