Nowadays, it seems CBD is in everything! What types of CBD products do you recommend for a first-time CBD user?
We are pretty purist over here at oHHo, and we like to keep things natural. A full spectrum (FS) oil product is the most natural extract you can buy, and it is where you will find the most therapeutic benefit. FS products contain additional compounds from the plant, such as other minor cannabinoids and terpenes, which synergistically combine to create a boosted effect of the CBD. This is called the entourage effect.
We would recommend using a full-spectrum oil (often called tinctures) if CBD is new to you. With an oil, you are able to dose accurately and the duration of the effect can last up to 6 hours. Oils that provide graduated droppers enable the consumer to accurately measure how much CBD they are ingesting. If you divide the strength of CBD in the bottle by how many milliliters there is you can work out how much CBD is in 1 milliliter and you can go from there. For example, if the bottle is 30ml and contains 1500mg of CBD, 1ml will contain 50mg of CBD.
CBD works on a cellular level so your height, weight, etcetera is not a factor that affects how much you need. Knowing your correct dose is about finding the “Goldilocks” amount that is optimum for you — not too little, not too much.
A principle of dosing CBD is to “Start low and go slow.” A moderate dose for a first-time user is around 15mg, and with oHHo oils, this is around 0.25ml of oil. If you do not feel the benefits, then we advise increasing by 0.25ml until you find that “just right” amount.
There is so much confusion around dosing CBD. To help, we decided to keep the same strength in our 1-ounce and half-ounce bottles so that you only need to make one calculation. We wanted to ensure our customers had at least 1 month’s supply per bottle. At 5 percent CBD strength we are able to offer 100x15mg doses from our 30ml bottles of our Colorado and Oregon oils — both contain 1500mg of CBD. Our New York oil is our strongest infusion at 7.5 percent and reflects our signature blend from our home state. Each 30ml bottle offers 150 15mg doses — 2250mg per 30ml.
We do not recommend CBD vape cartridges as they often contain ingredients that are toxic when inhaled, including thinning agents.
