CBD Oil FAQ
CBD oil is made from CBD that has been extracted from the flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant, then diluted with a carrier oil such as hemp seed or coconut oil. It can help with everything from mental health to physical health, and has been known to positively impact your mood and reduce chronic pain, along with a variety of other benefits. For more information on CBD oil – and some reasons why we think you should try it – check out what CBD oil is and why you should try it.
CBD oil can be taken in a variety of ways, from adding a bit into your morning coffee or smoothie to holding a few drops under your tongue and then swallowing. While the right dosage of CBD isn’t one size fits all – it varies from person to person – we recommend beginners start with five drops of our 250mg CBD oil three times a day. You can always increase your dosage once you get used to how CBD oil affects your body.

Studies have shown that CBD oil has contributed to easing symptoms of common health issues like acne, depression, anxiety and heart disease. It may even provide cancer patients with natural pain relief. For more information on CBD oil’s benefits for health and wellbeing, check out our blog post about CBD oil benefits.
While we have done an extensive amount of research on the benefits of CBD oil, it’s important to note that we are not doctors. If you have any questions about how CBD oil will affect you, it never hurts to check with your GP before trying it.
Yes, CBD oil is safe as long as you use the recommended dosage – we suggest you start out with five drops of our 250mg CBD oil three times a day – and adjust according to how it affects your body. You should also ensure you never exceed more than 70mg of CBD per day. Although it is uncommon, some people do experience side effects. Additionally, CBD oil may not be right for you if you are taking other medications – when in doubt, it’s always a good idea to check with your doctor first.
No, CBD oil will not get you high – despite common misconceptions, it’s not the same thing as marijuana, meaning you won’t experience the high typically associated with the plant. While both CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) come from the same plant (Cannabis), the “high feeling” is caused by THC, not CBD.
When it comes to using CBD oil for pain relief, keep in mind that its effects typically take about 15 to 45 minutes to kick in. If you’re looking to use CBD for joint pain, many people find it works best when the CBD is applied topically, meaning applied directly to the area where they’re experiencing pain. For period or headache pain, taking CBD orally and holding it under the tongue for 30 seconds can be more effective.
Yes, it’s safe to use CBD oil every day – in fact, it’s recommended that you do so to reap the best results. This is because CBD is lipophilic (aka fat soluble), meaning over time it compounds in your body; this adds to its potential health benefits. And, while you can’t overdose on CBD, it’s a good idea to stick to the recommended dosage.
How many drops of CBD oil you should take per day will, of course, depend on a variety of factors, such as your tolerance and how CBD oil impacts you and your body. However, we typically recommend that you start off by taking five drops of our 250mg Natural CBD Oil three times a day, which adds up to 18mg. Once you’ve monitored how that makes you feel, you can consider upping your dosage – although you should ensure that you don’t exceed 70mg of CBD oil per day (which equals out to 56 drops of our 250mg CBD oil).
It’s up to you and how CBD oil impacts your body. Some people prefer taking it in the morning, as it helps them wake up and boosts their levels of productivity. Other people stick to night-time usage, as it relaxes them and makes them feel drowsy and ready for bed. Other people take it in both the morning and the evening. In short, there’s no ‘right’ time of day to take CBD oil – you should take it whenever works best for you.
No, you don’t need to refrigerate CBD oil. Research shows that cannabinoids deteriorate quickly when they are exposed to light and air, so ensure that your CBD oil is stored somewhere cool and dark, like a kitchen cupboard, and that its bottle is airtight.
Yes, studies have shown that CBD oil is highly effective when it comes to treating stress and stress-related disorders such as generalised anxiety and social anxiety. Over time, CBD oil has become increasingly popular as a treatment for mental health issues, including anxiety and depression.
Putting CBD oil under your tongue gives you the fastest results. As there are lots of capillaries under your tongue, holding the CBD oil drops there for 30 to 60 seconds will cause the CBD to reach your bloodstream quicker – and with more noticeable results – than it would were you to wait for your digestive system to process it.
The strongest CBD oil we have is our unflavoured 2000mg Natural CBD Oil. It is a higher strength and ideal for those who are looking for a stronger concentration of dosage. As this is a higher grade CBD oil, we would only recommend it to those who have used CBD oils for a sustained period of time already.
This answer to how long will a bottle of CBD oil will last depends on a variety of factors, including how big your bottle of CBD oil is, how often you use it and how large each of your doses is. Our bottles of CBD oil are 10ml and have between 40 and 100 servings in them. This means that the CBD drops will last for a minimum of 13 days – however, your bottle could last much longer than that depending on how frequently (or should we say infrequently) you use CBD oil.
CBD oil has many different benefits. It can be used to treat chronic pain, neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimers, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease, anxiety, high blood pressure, acne and more. To learn more, check out this handy blog post for the benefits of CBD Oil we whipped up.
Yes, CBD oil has been found to calm some people down, reduce racing minds and lower feelings of anxiety. Individuals who used CBD oil regularly in particular found that it calmed them down and helped to alleviate symptoms of stress and anxiety.
Pure CBD (aka CBD isolate) offers a clean and consistent CBD dosage every time, free from unwanted impurities. As CBD is isolated, certain impurities are removed (such as THC), meaning Good Hemp’s CBD oils don’t have any psychoactive effects or other unwanted substances in them. Pure CBD offers a wide range of benefits when coupled with a healthy diet and lifestyle and is the go-to choice for many people who are interested in trying CBD oil for the first time.
Yes, there are impure versions of CBD. Many of these products do not meet the safety standards required for food supplements and can have residues of pesticides, fertilisers and other chemicals used during cultivation or manufacture (yuck!). Good Hemp’s CBD oils are thoroughly tested from the field through to the final product to ensure our CBD is 100% pure – guaranteed.
Yes, synthetic versions of CBD are available for use and are widely seen in the cosmetics market. They should be avoided – although they are pure, they are not derived from an actual plant source. Good Hemp’s CBD oils never use synthetic forms of isolates. Instead, we use 100% natural, hemp-derived pure isolated 99.8%+ CBD.
Non-GMO CBD is better for the environment and those consuming it as there are no pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers used during cultivation. Good Hemp’s CBD oils are made entirely from non-GMO hemp. This means that the hemp plants where we get our CBD from benefit the environment instead of harming it.
There are three stages of testing during the manufacturing of CBD oils:
- The first stage involves testing the initial raw material (dried hemp, hemp seed oil and any other natural flavourings we use). This ensures there are no signs of pesticides or any other toxins present, including mycotoxins and heavy metals or unwanted materials (toxins = yucky, and we don’t want that).
- The second stage occurs during the extraction phase, where we test the purity of the CBD. This typically involves repeating the same testing process we did during the first stage, but with the addition of cannabinoids. Once we are satisfied the CBD is purified and meets our exacting standards, we are finally ready to formulate our products.
- The final stage of testing is for cannabinoids (yes, again!) to ensure our CBD oil is free of impurities such as THC, as well as checking that the final CBD ratio is right.
