Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
CBD is the name of a cannabinoid in the cannabis plant and is actually an abbreviation for Cannabidiol.
The cannabis plant itself contains more than 60 different cannabinoids, and CBD is just one of the beneficial cannabinoids. CBD is a chemical combination obtained from the cannabis plant.
What is CBDa?
CBDa is the initial acid-based stage of CBD, which means when fresh hemp plants are harvested, they mostly contain CBDa and only a small amount of CBD. CBD (Cannabidiol) is then converted from CBDa in the drying and heating process.
What is THC?
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the most frequently occurring cannabinoid in the hemp plant.
THC has a psycho-active effect and is the main substance in cannabis, which gives the effect of feeling high. Furthermore, it has helped many people handling their pains in a much easier and better way and there are many stories and studies all over the world indicating that THC has a positive influence for people who is suffering from cancer or other diseases like Alzheimers and Autism.
What is THCa?
Like the CBD has a natural initial stage, the TCH got too.
THCa is the natural initial stage of THC, and when the fresh hemp plants are harvested and has went to the drying and heating process, it converts the THCa in to TCH.

How do I consume the CBD oil?
The oil is dropped under the tongue and kept in the mouth without swallowing until it feels like it has disappeared in the mouth. When putting the oil under the tongue, the mucous membranes in the mouth absorbs the oil & giving it a higher absorption compared to when you drink it, since the stomach acid destroys some of the good substances and nutrients.
How do I find the right dosage?
It is different from person to person how much CBD is needed in relation to their health, possibly illness and how the product works in the body.
We recommend a dosage of 5-10 drops of 3% CBD oil morning and evening for people who wants to prevent illness and for those with smaller symptoms like pain, trouble sleeping, fatigue, flu or/and cold symptoms.
For people with illness, a dosage of 15 drops of 3% CBD oil 3 times daily is recommended.
The reason why it should be 3%CBD instead of 33% is that when you have trouble sleeping or some kind of illness or pain, the best way to release that is with a higher dose of THC. So 1 drop of 33% contains almost the same amount of CBD as 10 drops from the 3%, BUT with 0,2% THC x 10 drops instead of 1 drop.
We emphasize that CBD is not a medical product but a dietary supplement and therefore no improvement can be guaranteed.
If you have any questions regarded to your dosage or need further information about your CBD product, don’t hesitate to send an e-mail or make a call. The contact information is informed under “Contact us”.
