The human body has two receptors for cannabinoids; these are called CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 is found all over the body but primarily in the brain and manage coordination, movement, pain and mood, among many other elements. Whereas CB2 receptors are more commonly found in the immune system. Unlike cannabis or THC, CBD merely influences these receptors rather than attaching to them. Scientists believe that CBD has the potential to help in the areas listed above, but due to lack of research so far, this cannot be claimed as afundamental benefit to using CBD products.
No, CBD will not make you high. CBD is one of over 100 compounds found in the cannabis plant and is legal due to its non-hallucinogenic properties. Cannabis features a multitude of compounds, one of which being THC, which is the element that gets you ‘high.’ Unlike THC, CBD simply influencers receptors, leaving a person in full control and aware of their surroundings.

To take the Oral Drops, you use the sublingual administration method, which is a complex medical term that means to hold something under your tongue. Simply place a few drops under your tongue and wait around 90 seconds before swallowing. The reason for this is, so the CBD enters the bloodstream faster as the underneath of your tongue has a multitude of blood vessels which makes it more absorbent than other areas.
Research so far, suggests that CBD usage is tolerated by humans, even taking asmuch as 1,500mg a day is still tolerated. Although research suggests this, we highly recommend two to three drops under the tongue, one to two times a day when using our 750mg full spectrum CBD Oral Drops. If you are taking medication and are thinking of taking CBD Oral Drops, then we strongly advise you to speak with your doctor beforehand.FIND OUT MORE

CBD isolate is what it says, a pure, isolated CBD compound. This is an off-white powder with no other active compounds. Whereas full spectrum CBD contains other cannabinoids such as CBN, CBL and CBCVA as well as aromatic cannabis terpenes like pinene and limonene. These additional compounds in full spectrum CBD could offer more benefits than CBD isolate. As there is little research on this, there is no concrete evidence that outlines the specific benefits, nor is there evidence to suggest that full spectrum CBD is better than isolate CBD.FIND OUT MORE
