What is CBD and where does it come from?

CBD stands for Cannabidiol and it is one of the two most well-known active compounds found in hemp and cannabis, the other of course being THC. The CBD oil which is used to make our products comes from hemp, which under the Federal 2018 Farm Bill must be under .3% THC. All products from CBD by Design are well below this limit, see our testing results here. Hemp is now federally legal in all 50 states and is the most common source for CBD products currently.

What benefits may I experience from products containing CBD?

Cannabidiol generally expresses different effects for different people.  If you are interested to learn more about scientific studies that we have reviewed, contact us and we would love to share more info.

Is CBD safe?

First and foremost, we recommend consulting your doctor before adding anything to your regimen that is designed to affect your health.   One concern some people have, including the FDA, is that some products you can find online and in retail stores are unregulated and untested.  They also might contain less CBD than advertised and/or contain harmful biproducts such as toxic metals, pesticides, or elevated levels of THC.  Therefore, CBD by Design 3rd party tests all its products and those certifications can be requested through our contact page .

Ingestible Instructions

Oil Tincture Use/Application (3000mg, 1260mg & 840mg oils)

CBD By Design’s oil tinctures may be used in a variety of ways, however the most popular is oral application.  Simply unscrew the cap, squeeze the rubber end of the dropper and then gradually release in order to draw some of the oil into it.  Then place the oil under your tongue for 30-40 seconds for optimal absorption.  The volume of oil each individual will use is up to their personal preference, however we recommend starting with .5 ml and working your way up from there.  Most users will perform this application 2-3 times throughout the day and repeated application daily is key.  This will build up a base in your body which will give the user the ability to experience the full benefits of CBD, phytocannabinoids and the terpenes our full-spectrum oil has to offer.

CBD Oil Flavoring Instructions

CBD by Design has created a unique solution for those looking to customize the flavor of their oil.  Our organic flavors are the perfect solution to anyone that prefers something other than the mild natural taste of our oil tinctures.  With 11 flavors to choose from, there’s certainly something for everyone.  Mixing several flavors is also an option until you find the perfect blend to suit your tastes.

After unscrewing the cap from your oil tincture, place it on a flat surface and then remove the cap from the flavor bottle.  From there simply draw the flavored oil concentrate into the dropper by squeezing the rubber bulb, then carefully start by placing 1 or 2 drops into your oil tincture.  Replace both caps and then shake up your tincture for approximately 10 seconds to allow the flavor to fully set it, then sample your creation.  From there if you feel more flavor is required simply repeat these steps until you reach your desired level of flavoring.  Enjoy!

Oil Tincture Use/Application for Pets

Just like humans, dogs will have a “sweet spot” dosage where they get the maximum benefit from their CBD regimen, and this will take some trial and error to find.  If you aren’t sure where to start, we recommend you try a few drops for a few days, and keep increasing the dosage slowly every few days until you start to notice the effects.

A typical guideline for daily dosage is 0.25mg of CBD per pound of body weight for a regular dose, and up to 0.5mg of CBD per pound of body weight for a strong dose.  

When figuring out how to calculate the dosage, you’ll need to consider the potency of your oil (i.e., how many mg in a ml) and use that to determine the ml size of the dose to administer.

As an example, a 45 pound dog that needs CBD for general well-being may start with a conservative dosage of 10-12mg.  Using an 840mg bottle, which has 28mg of CBD per 1ml dropper-full, you would give slightly less than a half dropper to your pup for their daily dose of 10-12mg.

Some common methods for giving your pet their daily dose of CBD include dropping the oil on their food, dropping the oil on treats or a piece of bread, squirting directly into their mouth with the dropper.

Roll-on 1000mg Application Instructions

CBD By Design’s 1000mg Roll-on is a very versatile product that can be used virtually anywhere.  Start by shaking for 5 seconds, followed by unscrewing the cap to reveal the stainless steel ball applicator.  From there simply turn the container upside down to allow the oil to flow while rolling it across the desired area.
