Frequently Asked Questions

What is CBD?
CBD Cannabidiol is the second most abundant cannabinoid found in cannabis. Cannabinoids are utilised by the the human body’s natural endocannabinoid system – perhaps the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health.

Which CBD is right for me?
We have a very comprehensive range of products: oral tinctures, eliquids, capsules, gummy bears, concentrated oils and crystals. Choosing the right product for you is entirely depending on your own preferences of consumption. We have a range of flavours and methods to suit everyone.

Firstly have a think about how you wish to consume CBD.

Secondly have a think about how many mg of cbd you would like to take as a supplement to your diet. CBDTEC are not able to advise any dosage for any said conditions. We can tell you based on experience people take between 10mg and 50mg of CBD per day as a dietary supplement. CBD tec products have several strength options. For best results we advise to increase your dosage gradually until you reach a level that you are happy with.

  • Eat it
    The most popular and traditional method of consumption is by taking drops under the tongue. This is an easy way to measure your daily dosage and increase/decrease as required. Typically a 10 ml bottle will last around 3 weeks taking 3 drops 3x per day.
  • Dab it
    Dabbing is the term used to describe the most effective way at delivering a large dosage of cannabinoids in a short period. Dabbing typically involves heating a glass Quartz, or Titanium nail with a manual heat source. The CBD Concentrate is then dropped onto this hot surface instantly vapourising the cannabinoids into a, convenient to inhale, highly concentrated cloud of cannabinoids.
  • Rub it
    CBD can be infused into a range of topical skin balms. Applying topically will allow the CBD to be absorbed by the skin and penetrate the area applied.
  • Vape it
    Vaping is considered to be one of the fastest ways to deliver CBD to the body. We call it the Etincture – an oil so clean its able to be taken orally or vaporized. We use PCR Cannabis oil from Colorado and infuse it with MCT (Medium Chain triglyceride) Coconut oil. We then add our cannabis derived terpenes to provide a distinct aroma and flavour. You don’t require a special vaporiser, our oils will work in most E-cigarettes.

Will CBDtec products get me high?

Our Hemp products will always contain less than 0.2% THC by volume. Our Cannabis products will typically contain closer to 0.02% THC. These levels of THC will not produce psychoactive effects.

What is the correct dosage?

Will CBDtec products make me fail a drugs test?
Taking a suggested serving size of most CBD tec products containing <0.3% THC is not likely to show in a urine test. However if you want ultimate peace of mind please order a USA product which is THC FREE* (0.02%THC)*

Where does CBDtec Hemp and Cannabis come from?
We source our hemp products from the EU and our cannabis range from the USA.

Will CBD help me?

CBD Tec recognise the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids. Whilst a growing body of research is being compiled from around the world, we ourselves cannot make any claims about CBD’s ability to treat cure or prevent any medical condition.

What dosage should I take?
A typical dosage of CBD is between 10mg and 50mg of per day. CBDtec offer a variety of strength options. For best results we advise to increase your dosage gradually until you reach a level that you are happy with.

How many mg of CBD is safe to take?

Cannabis and hemp are relatively benign non-toxic herbs.

In the 1970s, human studies showed that 
inhalation of 0.15mg/kg of body weight OR Oral CBD intake from 15 to 160mg/kg of body weight OR intravenous injection from 5 to 30mg/kg of body weight were not followed by ill effects.

What is my endocannabinoid system?

The endogenous cannabinoid system, named after the plant that led to its discovery, is perhaps the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.

Are there any negative side effects?

CBD Cannabidiol is a relatively benign compound. The CBD safety profile is already established. There are no known negative side effects to date when used as a nutritional supplement. Research into higher doses of CBD intended to produce a therapeutic response requires further research.

In the 1970s, human studies showed that inhalation of 0.15mg/kg of body weight or oral CBD intake from 15 to 160mg/kg of body weight or intravenous injection from 5 to 30mg/kg of body weight were not followed by ill effects.

Will CBD negatively interact with any prescribed medication?
We aren’t currently aware of any incidences where of negative interaction with prescribed medication. However we would always recommend customers do their own research into their specific medication and if in doubt consult a medical professional.

Are there any negative side effects?

CBD Cannabidiol is a relatively benign compound. The CBD safety profile is already established in a plethora of ways as a food suppliment. However, some research areas should be followed by additional clinical trials to have a completely well-tested pharmaceutical compound.

CBD Isolate vs Full Spectrum CBD

What’s the difference between CBD isolate and full spectrum CBD?
Due to its non-psychoactive healing properties, cannabidiol (CBD) has become a very popular option for people seeking a natural alternative to supplement their endocannabinoid system. For CBD consumers, there is a choice between using products made from CBD isolate or full spectrum CBD.

So, what is the difference between the two?
Full spectrum or whole plant CBD means the CBD contains all other cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant including CBDa (Cannabidiolic Acid), CBC (Cannabichromene ), CBN(Cannabinol), CBG (Cannabigerol) and THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin), to name a few. Along with these cannabinoids, full spectrum CBD also contains controlled trace amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) in very low concentrations (up to 0.2%), resulting in very minimal psychoactive stimulation.

CBD isolate, on the other hand, is purified CBD separated and isolated from the other natural cannabinoids plant and isolated from the other cannabinoids.

CBD vs full spectrum CBD: Which is more effective?

It was previously believed CBD isolate was more potent and concentrated than full spectrum CBD; however, in 2015, this was debunked by a study from the Lautenberg Center for General Tumor Immunology in Jerusalem. In the study, researchers administered full spectrum CBD and CBD isolate to two different groups of mice. When comparing the data of the two groups, the results proved that the group administered with full spectrum CBD were provided with higher levels of relief. Furthermore, the study demonstrated that full spectrum CBD continued to provide relief as the dose increased, while CBD Isolate did not provide the same effect when there was an increase in dosage.

While full spectrum CBD has ultimately proven more effective than CBD Isolate, CBD isolate still has its place on the market. There are a wide variety of situations when CBD isolate may be preferred over Full Spectrum CBD. For example, CBD isolate is tasteless, odourless and guaranteed free of THC. Or you may not need the other naturally occurring cannabinoids in full spectrum CBD. It is also important to note that other cannabinoids may have different reactions to isolated CBD. It’s important customers understand the characteristics of each cannabinoid and the best profile for their dietary requirements.

As researchers continue to study cannabis, we will learn more and more about these amazing cannabinoids and what they can do for us. If you’d like to view current research on CBD, here’s a link to a repository of medical research that covers over 50 medical conditions.
