HOW MUCH CBD OIL SHOULD I TAKE?

It is recommended you start with a low dosage and gradually build up the number of mg per day you take, until you get a desired effect. First, find out how many mg is contained in a full dropper, this will vary depending on the product you purchased. Start with half a dropper twice a day. After 3 days you may want to increase the dose to 1 full dropper twice a day. Repeat until you receive the desired result.

WHAT IS CBD?

CBD is one of the most prevalent compounds extracted from the plant Cannabis Sativa. It is non-psychoactive, completely legal and a major health-boosting ingredients.

CBD can come in two forms
CBDa – Cannabidiolic acid
CBD – Cannabidiol
CBDa is the raw form of CBD. Once Cannabidiolic Acid is heated or decarboxylated, releasing the Carbon Dioxide, it converts to the active form Cannabidiol. When we purchase CBD we are usually looking for the active compound Cannabidiol which has been the subject of so many studies and clinical trials in recent years.

WHAT IS FULL SPECTRUM CBD OIL?

When CBD oil is referred to as full spectrum it means that the oil contains all other cannabinoids found in the hemp plant including CBC (Cannabichromene), CBN (Cannabinol) and CBG (Cannabigerol) to name a few. Along with these cannabinoids, Full Spectrum oil also contains trace amounts of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), within the European threshold of 0.2%.

We use Purified Extract for the production of Koha Ora oils to bring you the finest, premium Cannabidiol. Purified Extract is high quality extract stripped of many different impurities (most of the plant lipids, all of the wax, chlorophyll etc) to deliver the best quality experience in CBD.

 

WHAT MAKES OUR CBD DIFFERENT?

Our hemp is grown in the perfect climate, exposing the plant to high UV rays mixed with cool air, and ideal PH soil levels. This is the first stage of producing the best CBD in the world. Harnessing these crucial elements is the key to success. The CBD is then naturally extracted and further decarboxylated to produce the highest quality Full Spectrum oil – the cognac of CBD.

 

WHY AM I EXPERIENCING FLU LIKE SYMPTOMS?

Herxing is a short term reaction as the body detoxifies. This is common when you start taking CBD and it is often referred to as the die off effect. It is quite common to experience flu-like symptoms which can include headache, joint and muscle pain, body aches, a sore throat, sweating, chills or nausea. If it occurs, it generally lasts a few days but can last for a week or more. Herxing is actually helpful to your system as it is creating a detoxifying effect. Starting with a small dose of CBD and slowly increasing can prevent this from occurring.
