Will I Fail A Drug Test If I Use CBD?2020-07-31T15:58:55+00:00

Cannabidiol should not show up in a drug test if it is properly extracted from hemp and contains 0.2% THC or less. This is why it is important to research brands thoroughly. THC is the illegal psychoactive component. However, if in doubt we carry a range of CBD products that are completely THC free for peace of mind, run a search for THC Free on our shop page or click the link below.

Will CBD Get Me High?2020-07-31T12:58:33+00:00

Why Is CBD Expensive?2020-08-01T08:28:04+00:00

Organic CBD is not cheap for several reasons. It is costly to grow large organic hemp crops without the use of pesticides. The extraction process is called supercritical CO2 extraction. That even sounds complicated and it is but this process produces the highest quality. Then the products have to be produced according to GMP (Good Manufacturing Processes) to assure quality control. Research and Development Costs. Distribution and Marketing is not easy. There is still a lot of misunderstanding by larger institutions that don’t fully understand CBD. They just think cannabis and worry about liability. Financial institutions are also stuck in the stone age for the same reason  and take a risk averse stance because they don’t properly understand what CBD is.

Where Do You Ship To?2020-08-01T09:08:04+00:00

What’s The Best Way To Consume CBD?2020-08-01T07:00:00+00:00

CBD products come in many forms these days from Oils to Edibles. When choosing your delivery method decide on how quick you want the CBD to enter you blood stream and how easily you want to incorporate taking it into your daily routine. For example, CBD oil held under your tongue for 2 to 3 minutes will enter your blood stream very quickly, as will patches and vapes but these can be slightly more hassle to administer. Whereas, taking a soft gel or a gummy is very quick and easy but takes longer to enter your blood stream as it has to be digested first. Small trade offs but the overall result is the same.

What Strength Of CBD Should I Use?2020-08-01T08:13:33+00:00

You will have noticed that CBD products have a lot of different strengths and it is difficult to know what strength is right for you so let’s fix that right now.

Firstly, it is important to know what strength you need because if it’s too low you will have to take much more to get the desired affect and you will be running out of CBD all the time.

Secondly, this is important to understand, you need to know the size of the bottle and the strength of the CBD to then know how strong each drop is, sounds complicated right so let’s simplify it. How much CBD do i get per drop? That’s what you want to know.

1000mg CBD strength in a 10ml bottle (10ml is roughly 200 drops)

This means you get 5mg of CBD per drop. What? How did you get that i hear you ask.

1000mg divided by 200 drops equals 5mg CBD per drop.

Let’s look at a larger bottle, 30ml. So we know thats roughly 600 drops. (10ml is 200 drops)

1000mg strength CBD divided by 600 drops equals 1.6mg per drop.

So larger bottles may require higher strengths depending on what you need because if the CBD strength stays the same but the volume increases the dose per drop reduces.

Thirdly, we need to understand what you want to achieve as the CBD strength targets different ailments.

300mg strength CBD is for general health and wellness

600mg strength CBD is for moderate stress, mild pain

1000mg strength CBD is for daily stress and anxiety, depression, higher levels of pain and inflammation

Of course the higher the strength CBD the more expensive it is.

An alternative and easier way to measure the Strength is to go by the stated percentage. The percentage is the concentration drop for drop and avoid you having to work out anything.

Volume 10ml 20ml 30ml 50ml 60ml 100ml
mg on label
250 2.5% 1.25% 0.83% 0.5% 0.42% 0.25%
400 4% 2% 1.33% 0.8% 0.67% 0.4%
500 5% 2.5% 1.67% 1% 0.83% 0.5%
750 7.5% 3.75% 2.5% 1.5% 1.25% 0.75%
1000 10% 5% 3.33% 2% 1.67% 1%
1500 15% 7.5% 5% 3% 2.5% 1.5%
2000 20% 10% 6.67% 4% 3.33% 2%
2500 25% 12.5% 8.33% 5% 4.17% 2.5%
3000 30% 15% 10% 6% 5% 3%

 

What Is The Difference Between Hemp Seed Oil and CBD Hemp Oil?2020-08-01T06:43:09+00:00

This is a great question and cause for a lot of misunderstanding. Hemp seed oil is made by compressing hemp seeds and does not contain CBD and its health benefits. CBD Hemp Oil is extracted from the flower of the hemp plant once it has grown and does contain CBD. Be careful you understand the difference when you buy CBD Oil. All products on AOC are genuine and made from the grown hemp plant so don’t worry, we have you covered.

What is CBD?2020-07-31T12:53:43+00:00

CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol. It is extracted from the hemp plant.

Hemp and marijuana are both classified in the Cannabis Genus however, the Difference between the two is the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) level. Hemp has a THC level of 0.2% or less and is legal. Marijuana has a THC level of more than 0.2% and is therefore illegal. THC is what contain the psychoactive component, the high!
