From ancient Chinese medical remedies to the first study examining its effects on epilepsy in 1980, Hemp CBD has played a unique and invaluable role throughout human history. Thanks to growing research, this ancient ingredient has once again taken central stage in our modern world.
But how should you start taking it, how often and when? All of these questions and more are covered below in our Beginner's Guide.
How do I begin?
Our Hemp Extract can be ingested or applied topically. For best results, we recommend releasing the oil directly under your tongue and holding it there for about 30-60 seconds before swallowing, allowing it time to be absorbed.
When trying CBD oil for the first time, you're welcome to start with as little as a few drops up to one full dropper each day and increase every few days or weeks as desired. Everyone's body responds to CBD a little differently, so some initial experimentation will help you find that sweet spot for your individual needs. The key is to stay consistent and allow it to build up a bit.
What is a 1mL serving size?
One full dropper (or about 20 drops) is equivalent to 1mL of Verdant Hemp Extract. There are 30– 1mL servings in all of our full size products. That said, you're welcome to start with as little as a few drops of oil and gradually increase until you find the right balance for your individual needs.
When Should I Take It?
We recommend taking it daily. Depending on individual needs or preferences, some customers take a dose first-thing to ease morning stress, others take it midday to maintain focus at work or reduce pain / soreness from a workout, some take it before bed to improve sleep, while others spread the dose throughout the day to help with more ongoing, or chronic, issues and discomfort.
Are there any side effects?Our products are well tolerated. However, as with anything, each individual's experience may be different and there's a chance that an individual may have a negative experience or reaction when using it. Please consult with your physician before using our products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, have or may suspect a medical condition, or are currently taking any medications.
