CBD products won’t change your perception of reality because they contain only trace amounts of THC (the compound that causes the high). However, CBD users do often experience mental health benefits, such as enhanced sleep and the absence of anxiety.
Yes, CBD products are legal in most countries, as long as they contain less than 0.3% THC. This amount won’t get you high, but it will help create the entourage effect (compounds work better when they’re together, rather than isolated).
The most common uses for CBD include treating anxiety, insomnia, muscle soreness, pain, nausea and epileptic seizures. Cannabidiol helps our bodies regulate themselves by utilizing the endocannabinoid system, instead of focusing on solving one specific problem. There’s promising research regarding the use of CBD for diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, cancer treatment and bone health, however, these areas still require testing.
The endocannabinoid system is a series of receptors that are located all throughout the human body. Simply put, the endocannabinoid system plays a crucial part in regulating our immune system, body temperature, appetite, blood pressure, mood, sleep, memory and more. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for maintaining our physical and mental stability.
Due to CB1/CB2 cluster sizes, everyone experiences CBD slightly differently. If you’re expecting something like a THC high, or even alcohol inebriation – you’re not thinking about it right. Ideally, you will feel perfectly normal, just without the given symptom you’re looking to address.
Every human is different and the dose depends on your weight, the desired effect, as well as tolerance. There really is no one answer to this question, and we always advise our clients to start with a smaller dose and increase it if necessary. Consult the table below:

Yes, cannabidiol is commonly used to treat anxiety and pain in animals, as well as humans. Animals often get anxious or scared from loud noises or when left alone. And, of course, they get older just like we do. CBD can be great for animals, as it is a natural product and quite easy to use. For the dosage, consult the table below:
Recommended daily dosage of adilCBD oil
|Weight group||First week||Following weeks
(increase the dose if necessary)
|<5 kg||1 mg||<2 mg|
|5-15 kg||2 mg||<5 mg|
|15-30 kg||3 mg||<8 mg|
|30-50 kg||4 mg||<12 mg|
Typically CBD is shown as “working” per symptomatic relief. It will not cure your ailments, merely treat symptoms – nausea, pain, anxiety, depression, etc. Compare yourself prior to taking it, and after. You should have relief from what you’re looking to address – if not, try a higher dosage.
CBD oil is best used by ingestion – either putting the oil in drinks or food, or using it sublingually (dropping the oil under your tongue). Sublingual use of CBD oil is recommended, as it is more effective and the effects tend to last longer. Just drop the oil under your tongue and swallow it after 30-60 seconds!
We advise caution if you’re already using medicine for anxiety, convulsions or seizures, as combining these drugs with CBD can increase / decrease their strength, or activate side effects. Definitely speak to your doctor beforehand.
Due to a lack of reseach regarding this topic, we cannot be 100% certain. Here’s what we know:
- Breastmilk naturally contains cannabinoids that are also found in hemp and cannabis
- CBD is a natural substance that doesn’t cause a high
- CBD is used to treat epileptic seizures in children
- There are no studies looking at the long-term effects that CBD has on children
- It is known that mimnimal amounts of THC can be passed through breastmilk (not enough to cause a high), however, no such studies have been done for CBD
Parents should evaluate these facts themselves and consult a medical professional before making a final decision.
