WHAT IS

CBD

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that reduces and modulates the intoxicating effects of THC.

CBD does not produce psychoactive effects, but it can have calming or relaxing effects in individuals (it does not get you ‘high’ or ‘stoned’).

Alzheimer’s disease

Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, prevents cell death.

ANXIETY

Reduction of muscle tension & fatigue (in mice), improvement in concentration (in mice). Reduction in social anxiety (in humans).

CANCER

Inhibits cell growth in many types of cancer, induces cancer death.

CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES

Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

crohn’s DISEASE

Reduction in complications and symptoms in humans.

DEPRESSION

Anti-depressant effect (in mice).

DIABETIC COMPLICATIONS

Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, prevents cell death.

DRUG ADDICTION

Reduction of muscle tension & fatigue (in mice), improvement in concentration (in mice). Reduction in social anxiety (in humans).

EPILEPSY (NOT ALL FORMS)

(not all forms)Decrease in seizure.

Huntington’s disease

Neuroprotective, antioxidant in mice, no significant difference in humans.

Inflammatory diseases

Anti-inflammatory properties.

Multiple scleroris

Anti-inflammatory, immune modulator.

Pain (Neuropathy)

Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Parkinson’s disease

Reduction in complications and symptoms in humans.

Psychosis

Anti-depressant effect (in mice).

PLease consume responsibly

Please note: expected durations may vary, evidence is anecdotal and depends on consumption methods and CBD.

People metabolize CBD differently depending on their genetic makeup and previous history with the cannabinoid.It is always suggested to start at a dosage of 10-20mg and adjust as needed. CBD can be taken in a variety of forms including inhalation, oral, sublingual, and topical. Each method of administration has its own benefits.

Consume cannabis responsibly and stop when you have had enough or achieved your desired effects.

General Dosing

Cannabis has a wide range of effects, which is influenced by product category; flower, tincture, capsule, concentrate, edible, etc. There are other features which are also important to keep in mind; route of administration (ROA), dosage, and duration.

Inhalation

When talking about cannabis the most popular ROA is smoking or vaporizing.This is often fast acting and strong in its intoxicating effects.

Ingestion

Edibles are long lasting making them excellent candidates for ease of consumption and duration of effect. Start with a minimal dosage (5-10mg) and allow at least 1-2 hours for effects to fully appear.

ORAL: Eat / CONSUME

Sublingual

To apply something sublingually is to apply it under the tongue and allow blood vessels in the mouth to absorb the product. The longer the oil rests under the tongue, the stronger and quicker the effect.

Sublingual: Under the Tongue

Topical

This method does not offer any intoxicating effects but is excellent for localized relief. Topicals produce mild to no psychoactivity (it doesn’t get you high).

TOPICAL: Localized Relief

ONSET PEAK DURATION

START LOW GO SLOW

For first time users, cannabis should be consumed slowly in low dosages. This is because everyone metabolizes cannabinoids differently and expected duration may vary. Consume cannabis responsibly and stop when you have had enough or achieved your desired effects
