[/vc_column_text][vc_toggle title=”What are cannabinoids” el_id=”1490995880320-665e7f5b-b901″]Cannabinoids are chemical compounds produced by the hemp or cannabis plant and there are more than 85 identified cannabinoids. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most well known cannabinoid produced by the cannabis plant, and is the only psychoactive cannabinoid. Of the 85+ non-psychoactive cannabinoids, Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most widely known. A cannabinoid acts on cannabinoid receptors in cells that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain.

Rick Simpson popularized the use of hemp oil for the treatment of cancer and other ailments. Contrary to popular believe, is that he did not discover hemp oil nor was he the first person to discover its healing properties (the early Chinese surgeon Hua Tuo (c. 140-208) is credited with being the first recorded person to use hemp as an anesthetic). However, his name is associated with the use of hemp oil as a cancer treatment, thus many people refer to hemp oil as Rick Simpson Oil.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Do I need a doctor’s prescription or medical marijuana card?” el_id=”1473865503460-25c84f8a-a778″]No. Our products are classified as hemp and are thus available to anyone who wishes to purchase them in the EU and UK.

[/vc_column_text][vc_toggle title=”How do I administrate/dosage?” el_id=”1473865648510-42589a49-96c6″]
Products are available in a variety of forms that can be consumed in number of fashions:
- Oils, Concentrates, Tinctures and vaporising liquids
- Effects felt immediately
- Absorption efficiency around 10-25%*
- Sublingually/Orally by placing the oil under your tongue.
- To take a tincture sublingually, drop the desired dosage under your tongue and hold it for 30-60 seconds before swallowing. This method will produce quicker and stronger effects because the oil is absorbed into the bloodstream through the inner linings of the mouth.
- It will take longer to feel the effects, steady lasting effects.
- Absorption efficiency around 10-35%*
- Alternatively, you can also swallow the tincture directly on its own like you would any liquid food-supplement.
- It can also be lubricated on the skin. Little to no “high.” Easy application and long-lasting effects.
- Rectally administrated by suppositories.
- Absorption efficiency around 50-70%*
- Effects felt fast.
- Suppositories are ideal for chemotherapy patients, elderly and people who have sensitive stomachs that are irritated by ingesting.
- Mixing with food/drinks.
- This can be done by adding a few drops of a tincture to a beverage such as soda or juice. The oil may be added to a variety of foods such as puddings, ice creams, dressings and sauces.
- Long-lasting effects
- Microdosing (explained further in the next question)
- Long-lasting effects. Easy on the lungs. Discrete. No taste or smell. Quick and easy to consume.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What is Microdosing?” el_id=”1496669217370-c95eb03d-89be”]Microdosing is a new technique of taking only small quantities of substances for therapeutic purposes.
For medical users, micro-dosing helps you achieve the benefits of the RSO, whether for pain, inflammation, neuroprotection, depression, or anxiety, without leaving you beyond function. By only using enough to achieve relief, without being overwhelmingly high, not only do you improve daily performance, but you help your medicine last longer and cost less, which is important since insurance has yet to cover the costs of RSO-related products.
When imbibing low doses of RSO, you don’t perceive you’re intoxicated but experience a creative opening that allows you to enjoy the benefits without the side effects. The idea of designing subtle yet profound changes within ourselves using a natural healing plant is an alluring aspect for many.
For recreational users, micro-dosing is just as beneficial. Sure, you can’t overdose, but you can over do it. By micro-dosing, you feel great without feeling out of it, and save money by not developing a high tolerance.
Introduction to Microdosing 101, as taught by professor and chef Annie Nelson*.
Step 1: “Always, always, always start low,” Nelson warns. “If you’re not a smoker, I’d start with 1-2mg of whatever it is, 2.5mg at the most. That’s it, and don’t take anything else. Then set your alarm for an hour and a half later. Seriously, set the alarm, because you might forget.”
Step 2: “Think about what your goal is. Are you trying to relax or rid yourself of anxiety? Are you trying to get high? Are you trying to sleep better?” (More on microdosing for sleep in a minute.)
Step 3: “When your alarm goes off 90 minutes later, ask yourself these questions, and answer them honestly. How do I feel? Do I feel high? Do I feel the way I want to feel? Do I feel like I can function?”
Step 4: “If you feel unchanged after 90 minutes, you know that wasn’t enough—and next time you can try twice as many milligrams. So next time you’re trying 5mg of THC, but remember to set your alarm for 90 minutes again.”
Nelson also had a side note for the sleepless: “For my friends who are using cannabis to help them sleep better, and that’s a huge issue, here’s my advice to them: Try a small piece, roughly 5mg, about an hour before you’re ready to lie down. When you’re doing this for your first time, do it in your own space. When you wake up later that night or the next day, take stock: Did you notice a difference at all? Check in with yourself in the morning: Do you feel any better than you normally do? If not, try a little bit more the following night—but not too much.”
As the old edibles adage goes: You can always take more, but you can never take less.

Have a look below at some article or search on the internet for more information on this procedure. Some vaporizor pens allow you to put oil in the chamber that has a heating coil inside, those pens could work fine with undiluted low concentrates.

Some articles regarding vaporizing oil:
http://thoughtforyourpenny.com/2014/10/dissolving-drugs-in-glycerin-for-vaping/[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How do I get the oil out of the syringe/bottle it comes in?” el_id=”1490997224419-1c53c80e-ef08″]Unscrew the endcap on top of the syringe. This can be difficult the first time because the oil is thick and sticky. Run some hot tap water over the end of the syringe for about 15 seconds and the cap should unscrew easily.
Do the same for a glass 10ml bottle, but leave the lid on. Do not put the a glass bottle in a microwave with the lid on,
If the oil starts to get out of the syringe fast, then quickly pull back on the syringe plunger to stop it.
To dispense the oil, carefully and very slowly push on the syringe plunger. Be careful not to push too hard because the oil may come out quickly.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How much oil does one take (per day)?” el_id=”1473865836509-baaa8100-59c2″]A (daily) dosage depends a lot from person to person (body weight, age, health condition, etc..) and thus we recommend everyone to start with a very small amount of 0.02 ml. Gradually you increase the dosage until the desired result is obtained (e.g. pain reduction). Reduction in dose can also be taken to the previous amount should any undesired results occur. Your body eventually builds up tolerance, but it can take several weeks to get well used to this oil.

[/vc_column_text][vc_toggle title=”How does the testing kit work?” el_id=”1476980674386-fa8a1309-f80f”]
The cannabinoid testing kit contains two plates. On each plate you have the possibility to test the potency of 4 (different) samples. Each plate can only be used once. So you can only test 1-4 samples at the same moment.
[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How should I store the oil products?” el_id=”1490997615884-e8fc94d7-c63a”]
The oil can best be stored away from heat and light and kept cold to preserve freshness and potency.
[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What is the expiration date?” el_id=”1490998360228-b165656c-7397″]

We continually evaluate the long-term stability of our products, and preliminary data shows that if stored properly, there is no observed degradation any hemp product up to 1 year.
[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Can I use your extract oils for my pet (dog/cat)?” el_id=”1491001166546-68dbe0b3-3de0″]You might like to try our low concentrated CBD-oil. It is a great introduction to the healthy qualities found in our products at an affordable price. If your pet experiences pain then it would be recommended to choose the RSO-oil.
The best is to start the dosage very low and slowly increase it, in order to see how your pet reacts.
The administration for dogs and other pets is somehow derived from the dosology for humans. The dosology for animals is based on the weight, with a maximum intake of 0.03ml/kg a day (25-50mg of CBD, 5-10 drops of the 5% CBD bottle).
If too much hemp extract oil is given to a dog, then temporary drowsiness may occur. Additionally, too much oil, not hemp extract, can cause dogs to have an upset stomach and potential diarrhea.
A link to a scientifically research done on the administration of CBD on dogs:
The research conducted was based on a very large dosage of 45 mg – 180 mg of CBD. Following this research would mean a maximum drops of 18-72 drops with our 5% CBD-bottle.
