Which CBD oil?
We often get asked about the best CBD oil to take, from both first time CBD users and from customers continuing with CBD as part of a daily regime.
The first thing to understand is what the mg illustrates on the front. This is the number of milligrams of CBD in each of our oils. So 300mg is the lightest and 1000mg is the strongest. There are approximately 250 drops in each CBD oil bottle which is 10ml. So with the 300mg, it works out at approximately 1.2mg CBD per drop. The 1000mg works out at approximately 4mg CBD per drop.
We also guarantee you that with a healthstrong CBD oil, the amount of milligrams is the absolute minimum amount in each bottle. Our oils are independently tested and verified. Be assured that you are getting what you pay for. Quite often, we will deliver more CBD than what is labelled.
For instance, our latest batch of 300mg CBD oil (at the time of writing this post in January 2019), contains 390mg CBD/CBDa per bottle.
Choosing the right CBD oil…
Next up is understanding how to choose the right CBD oil. This is incredibly difficult because each and every customer is different. Stronger is not always better as you may respond well on a light dose or you might need more. This is something that you will need to discover.
It is generally considered that if you are trying CBD for the first time, it’s better to start off on a low dose and gradually build up to a higher dosage and then adjust back down.
Find the amount of CBD that is right for you. You can do this with both the 300mg CBD oil and the 1000mg CBD oil, so it’s fine to start with either, the 1000mg will just last longer as you will need fewer drops to start.
Some users responder quickly to CBD but on the whole, it is not an immediate response. You will need to take CBD daily over a period of time as part of your health regime.
CBD oil ingredients…
Along with the strength of a CBD oil you should also consider the ‘make up’ of your CBD oil. By that, we mean a breakdown of the ingredients and extract. Not all CBD oils are the same and in reality, most are very different.
Our oils, for instance, are full spectrum. This means that they contain other extracts or phytocannabinoids from the hemp plant alongside the CBD. We feel this presents you with the best quality oil and a more powerful option compared to oil without them. We have a balance or ‘blend’ of CBDA and CBD (milligrams) in each bottle – this is denoted by the number of milligrams earlier mentioned, on the front of the bottle.
CBDa and CBD
Our CBD oils are carefully formulated based on industry expertise and understanding. For instance, CBDa will provide you with different health benefits compared to just CBD, so we feel it’s important to have both. We can’t make any health claims for CBD because it is sold as a food supplement and not a medicine and we can’t go into any further detail.
Alongside the CBDa and CBD, there are other cannabinoids such as CBC (cannabichromene) and CBG (cannabigerol). These will also provide you with additional health benefits to those of the CBD. We also have trace elements of THC but well within the current legal limit set by the Home Office.
Be confident that whichever healthstrong CBD you choose, we have created the best formula possible for the amount of milligrams you are paying for.
Our extracts are mixed with organic cold pressed hemp seed oil as a carrier. They are then all independently tested in a state of the art laboratory. This is all part of our commitment to provide the highest quality CBD oil.
