Starting out…

How much CBD should I take?

When you begin taking CBD, it is wise to start small and build up. We suggest you start at 20mg a day and work up, increasing or decreasing 5 mg a day, each week until you get the desired effect. Everyone reacts differently and depending on your body’s chemistry and the strength of the CBD the reactions and effects are different. It is wise to keep track of your daily intake. If you are regularly taking medicine or prescribed medication, you should consult with your Doctor prior to using any CBD products.

Best CBD products for beginners

Our range of supplement capsules, similar vitamin and mineral supplements, is a great place to start. They are very simple to take and available in a wide variety of strengths. As you start to understand your optimum dose, you will be able to experiment with a wider variety of our products including the Oils & Creams.

Using CBD effectively

Generally, CBD products are consumed orally, with some products such us our Rejuvenating Creams being absorbed through the skin. We believe the best combination of product and method is to take Oil under the tongue, using the pipette provided. When left for two minutes before swallowing, diffusion of CBD into the bloodstream is maximised, thus giving you more value for money.
