Will I fail a drugs test if I take CBD?
Any legal CBD products sold in the UK must contain only trace amounts of THC (the element that a drug test focusses on). You would have to consume large volumes of product to fail a drugs test from CBD products alone. The entire range of Goodbody products are fully compliant with UK law.
Why is there no dosage info?
Any manufacturer making CBD products cannot make any medicinal claims, nor can they give guidance to consumers on what dosage they should take. Our experience shows that each person takes CBD for different reasons and each person’s requirements are unique to them. What works for one person using CBD will vary from another. So theoretically, two people in the same household could share the same bottle of CBD oil.
For our 10ml oils we advise a usage of 0.2ml twice daily (0.15ml twice daily for the 20%)
How do I work out what strength a CBD product is?
This can be the cause of huge confusion. Some products show one and others show multiple values. However, it’s really important to understand so you make the right choice for both your experience and your budget. So, let’s look at each one of these:
ml (Millilitres) – CBD needs to be added to a carrier oil (most commonly olive oil, hemp seed oil or MCT coconut oil) to allow it to be taken, so this figure is simply the volume of liquid (both CBD and carrier oil) in millilitres that the product contains. We at Goodbody are trying to make consumers’ lives easier so our bottles are all 10ml.
% CBD represents the amount of CBD in the amount of the entire volume (ml’s) of the liquid in the bottle (combination of CBD and carrier oil) that is in that product. So, a product showing 5% CBD has half the amount of CBD that’s in a product with the same volume containing 10% CBD. Also, a product that has 5% CBD in a 10ml bottle is the same as 10% CBD in a 5ml bottle.
mg (Milligram) is the weight of CBD that has been added to the product i.e. 250mg, 500mg or 1000mg and are all common weights. The more CBD that’s in the product (in the same volume – ml) the stronger the CBD content.
To avoid confusion over what strength to select, and to make our consumers’ lives easier, we at Goodbody have identified the % of CBD contained in each bottle. For example, a 10% CBD oil indicates that 90% is the carrier oil and 10% is CBD.
How can I achieve good value for money whilst maintaining high quality?
Consumers can vary their CBD intake by either the strength of CBD they take (i.e. 10% is 4 times stronger than 2.5% for the same quantity), or by increasing the volume they take (4 drops of 5% oil will deliver twice as much CBD as 2 drops of 5% oil).
There are many competitor products on the market with very low % of CBD content in large bottles, which appear to offer very good value for money. However, be wary as the low CBD content in them makes them extremely poor value compared to higher % CBD products.
Remember it’s the CBD that’s the expensive part of the product, and not the carrier oil. We at Goodbody work hard to offer the highest quality of products, whilst ensuring our products offer good value for money.
How can I take CBD?
CBD is absorbed really well sublingually (which means administered under the tongue) which is why the majority of products are available in oil format. This is by far the preferred format of choice by consumers.
However, there are a large variety of ways CBD can be delivered from adding it to your tea or coffee, swallowing in capsules or rubbing it on your skin as a balm. All of these formats are offered by Goodbody.
What should I be wary of when selecting a CBD product?
The most important factor is that it’s produced by a trusted source (such as Goodbody) who demonstrate they have all the required procedures, tests and documents to prove not only safety, but quality.
