WHAT IS CANNABIDIOL?
Cannabidiol or CBD is the largest chemical compound in the cannabis plant that is believed to have a very wide therapeutic potential.
Cannabidiol or CBD does not contain the psychoactive effect, usually caused by the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) found in marijuana.
Where cannabis has a number of psychoactive effects such as euphoria and neuron excitation on human brain which people often regard as being “high”.
CBD has enormous therapeutic effects including anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, antidepressant, anticonvulsant, antipsychotic and neuroprotective qualities.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
According to different researches based on the use of cannabidiol, there are enormous visible psychological effects on the human brain.
CBD helps in controlling serotonin levels- a dopamine-like neurogenic chemical linked with maintaining good mental health.
CBD helps managing anxiety, social wellbeing, reducing stress, pain perception and improving symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Naturally, our body system contains endocannabinoid system or ECS which helps to regulate haemostasis and hormones to maintain a balance between the basic bodily functions.
These systems regulate the things like mood, pain perception, motor control, memory, appetite, sleep, just to cover a few.
As we age, the naturally occurred cannabinoid wears out. However, by the use of CBD, the physiological system in the human body can be optimized and replenish working as normal.
HOW MUCH CBD SHOULD I TAKE?
Cannabis compounds have biphasic properties, meaning both the low and high doses of the substance can produce the same effects in the body.
For a start-up routine, it is smart to initiate with the low to moderate dose a day especially if you have little or no experience with CBD.
There is no exact way to dose CBD for every person nor are we legally allowed to give exact dosing. Dosing remains experimental and subjective. It is a natural plant and everyone processes things differently. To understand dosage, we must the amount of CBD per millilitre.

HOW TO FIND THE MILLIGRAMS PER DROPLET OF ANY CBD PRODUCT:
This is the most important part, how to find the milligrams (mg) per millilitre (ml) in any CBD product you use. First, start with these 2 questions:
- How many milliliters (ml) is the bottle? It should say printed on the label.
- How many total milligrams (mg) of CBD are the bottle? See label.
- 1ml = 10 droplets of e-liquid.
- A full dropper of most bottles are equal to 1ml
- You will need a calculator
For example, a 10ml bottle with 200mg of CBD. You first need to know how much CBD there is per millilitre in order to understand dosage.
- 200mg of CBD divided by 10ml
- 200mg / 10ml = 20mg/ml. There are 20mg of CBD per millilitre or one dropper full.
- 10 drops = 1 millilitre or 1 dropper full. Therefore, 20mg/10 = 2mg dose per droplet of CBD.
Before you buy CBD, always make sure you check the amount of CBD vs. the size of the bottle. Watch out for diluted down products. Most importantly, certified laboratory testing is essential; you never know what is in your bottle unless it is documented on batch numbered lab results from a verifiable lab. Good CBD companies have nothing to hide and have their lab work ready to share. If it’s not there readily available for you to see or on request, be careful.
