Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical compound highly prevalent in the hemp plant. It is one of over 85 unique compounds found in hemp, known as cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are completely safe and when either consumed (phytocannabinoids) or produced naturally by the body (endocannabinoid), are chemical compounds that interact with the body’s central regulatory system; the Endocannabinoid System. This system is known to manage homeostasis and provide powerful benefits for pain, sleep, and anti-inflammation.

Determining how much CBD oil to take like, all supplements, should be a process of moderation and you should consult a physician if necessary. Consider the potency of CBD in the product you are taking. Potency refers to the concentration of CBD in a product. Then decide the milligrams of CBD to take.
With that said basic dosing guidelines are:
- Start with a low dose and see how it feels (even lower than the suggested dose)
- Go slow with that dosage by giving it at minimum a few days.
- Monitor how you feel, your mood, your cravings, how you sleep, check for interactions with other medication. We suggest keeping a journal.
- Consult with a health professional
- If no effects are felt increase dosage
