FAQ

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol is a popular natural remedy used for many common ailments.

Better known as CBD, it is one of over 100 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis or marijuana plant, Cannabis sativa.

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and causes the sensation of getting “high” that’s often associated with marijuana. However, unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive.

This quality makes CBD an appealing option for those who are looking for relief from pain and other symptoms without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical drugs.

CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant, then diluting it with a carrier oil like coconut or hemp seed oil.

What are the benefits of using CBD?

It’s gaining momentum in the health and wellness world, with some scientific studies confirming it may ease symptoms of ailments like chronic pain and anxiety.

Ancient civilizations have used various strains of cannabis throughout centuries for their wealth of wellness properties. But due to dramatic shifts in legislation and other influences, cannabinoids became widely unaccepted as an alternative application.

However, as the health and science communities continue to further recognize and accept the properties of different cannabinoids, the prohibitions that once restricted and limited the use of CBD have evolved into protections and freedoms for anyone looking for safe and natural alternatives.

Among the many benefits that our users experience, some of the main ones are: a sense of calm for focus; relief from everyday stresses; help in recovery from exercise-induced inflammation; and support for healthy sleep cycles

What are Terpenes and Flavonoids?

Anyone who has ever been in close proximity to the hemp plant will have noticed its unique, pungent aroma. Depending on which variety of hemp it is, there may be overtones of lemon, earthy notes, or even a hint of pepper. These fragrances are created by organic molecules called terpenes (also known as terpenoids). But they’re not unique to hemp and cannabis – every aromatic plant and flower throughout nature is abundant in the little fragrant fellas.

In cannabis, the flavonoids are called cannaflavins and their main function is to provide the unique smell, taste, vibrant colour and overall sensory experience of each cannabis strain. The distribution of cannaflavins depends mainly on genetics and growing conditions. It is now possible to extract them allowing for a more concentrated sample with stronger tastes and smells, that could be used to supplement your normal cannabis consumption. They do not add to the “high” as they are not psychoactive, but they have a relaxing effect similar to CBD.

Cannaflavins are currently being researched and there is still a lot to learn. Scientists are discovering how the presence of common cannabis flavonoids like β-sitosterol, vitexin, isovitexin, apigenin, kaempferol, quercetin, luteolin, and orientin work in relation to cannabinoids and terpenes under the overall entourage effect.

What is the Entourage effect?

The entourage effect is the results (the effect) produced from the synergistic interaction of the cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, and fatty acids naturally found in cannabis. The Encourage Effect refers to the beneficial effect of all these compounds working together as opposed to just one or two of these compounds working in isolation.

Simply put: the Entourage Effect is the benefit you get from ingesting multiple components of the cannabis plant together instead of ingesting one component at-a-time

What dosage do I require?

Eden Range CBD products come in a wide variety of concentrations. The amount of CBD they contain per bottle is clearly stated on the front label. Eden Range products display this through “mg” such as 100mg, 250mg, 500mg, or 1,000mg. Our CBD Oil may also state the Strength a percentage, such as 1%, 2.5%, 5%, or 10% cannabidiol (CBD).

At Eden Range we label our products with “mg” and ensure each and every single product contains the specified amount along with batch test purity levels to ensure our customers receive only the highest quality product.

Higher strengths of CBD will likely have a greater effect, though it’s not recommended to start with a high strength if you haven’t taken CBD before.

Try starting with CBD Products containing a lower to moderate dosage/strength such as Eden Range 250mg CBD Oil Drops, then gradually working your way up to a higher dosage if needed such as the 500mg or 1000mg. By monitoring the relief or effects over several days you can make the necessary adjustments. If you don’t achieve the desired effect then slowly increase your dosage. Once you achieve a desirable level of relief you will be able to learn what concentration of CBD is best for you.

Low dose  (first 2 weeks)

0.10mg per kg bodyweight.

Kg × 0.10mg

Example 70kg adult 7mg twice per day.

 

Medium dose  (2-4 weeks)

0.2 per kg bodyweight

Kg × 0.2mg

Example 70kg adult 14mg twice per day.

 

High dose (if necessary, after 4 weeks)

0.40 per kg bodyweight.

Kg × 0.40mg

Example 70kg adult 28mg twice per day.

 

Dose per serving is another factor to consider before purchasing CBD oil. For example, a 1000mg 10ml bottle will contain approximately 200 drops, 5mg CBD per drop.

A cheaper product such as 250mg CBD will contain 200 drops, 1.25mg CBD per drop. Even though higher concentrated products might be more expensive, they do provide greater value for money to the customer. So if you have worked out your optimal dose of CBD, decide whether or not switching to a higher concentration saves you money in the long-run. For example, a 500mg bottle of Edenrange CBD Oil costs less than if you were to buy two 250mg bottles.

Disclaimer: Please use this as a general guide only, the amount of CBD per bottle varies slightly, please lab reports for more information.
