Does CBD have side effects?
In general there is a small chance of side effects. Because it contains a small amount of THC, you can suffer from:
How much CBD should I use?
The correct dose differs per person. It is difficult to estimate in advance exactly how much CBD is needed. In general it is best to start with a low dose: 2.5 to 5 milligrams twice a day. If the symptoms are not reduced after two weeks, you can double the dose.
How fast does CBD oil work?
CBD oil can work within five to ten minutes if it is dripped under the tongue. The active substance, cannabidiol, is then absorbed into the blood through the salivary glands. If the CBD oil is swallowed, the effects may take longer. It is therefore advisable not to eat or drink during the first 10 minutes.
How long does CBD oil last?
CBD oil can be kept for at least a year, as long as it is stored in a dark place. Sunlight can reduce the quality of the oil. Over time, part of the oil can separate from the rest. That is why it is smart to shake the bottle well before taking a dose.
CBD oil can contain remnants of nuts. If you have a nut allergy, we advise you not to use the CBD oil.
