What is CBD? See its Health Research and Ananda's Formulas!
The Ananda Apothecary now carries three incredible unique, potent, ingestible CBD formulas! See them all here.
CBD is 'cannabidiol', one of at least 85 cannabinoids found in cannabis and hemp that has been shown in a vast amount of research to have significant medical effects, but does not make people feel “stoned”.
CBD's Research for a Very Wide Variety of Health Conditions
Scientific and clinical studies underscore CBD’s vast potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions. It has been researched for rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrated neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere.
To review this research (for the above conditions and many others), see the list of conditions for which CBD has been studied at projectcbd.org. In the list of conditions on the right side of their page, click any one to see links to published scientific studies.*
Ananda's CBD formulas are different than anything else on the market. They are based in MCT Coconut oil, with Rosemary Antioxidant added - as CBD extract itself is relatively perishable. MCT Coconut oil (simply Coconut oil with the heavier molecules 'fractionated' out, so the oil stays liquid at all temperatures) had the naturally-longest shelf life of any edible oil. And Rosemary antioxidant CO2 is the most efficient antioxidant known for preserving oils and oil-soluble extracts.*
Our CBD '100' is 100% CBD CO2 based in MCT Coconut oil with Rosemary Antioxidant.
Our CBD 'Plus' includes Hemp essential oil, in addition to the high-CBD CO2 extract. Hemp essential oil's complex molecular makeup, including a wide variety of terpenoid compounds, is thought to synergize with CBD itself, making it more bio-available to the nervous system.
And our CBD 3x includes CBD, Hemp essential oil and Frankincense CO2 extract. Frankincense is included for it's very wide variety of health-potentiating properties. It is the most thoroughly and positively researched essential oil with anti-cancer actions (it has been shown to cause natural cell death of cancer cells in EVERY cell line ever tested: blood, brain, bladder, breast, prostate, etc). CBD is also being extensively researched for similar properties.*
Legal for Shipment to All 50 States
Because Ananda's CBD is CO2-distilled from 'industrial' hemp, it is legal for sale in all 50 states. Our formulas include synergistic plant extracts,and have been created for ease of dosing, with each delivering 1mg CBD per drop.
We do not sell the CBD CO2 extract itself, as it is a tar-like material which is very challenging to work with, and particularly difficult to measure in milligram amounts.
What dose is right for you?
Most people swallow 5mg - 10mg (drops) or more daily, as desired. (We have read one doctor's recommendation of this amount - however, the amount of CBD that people take on a daily basis can vary greatly. CBD oil can be taken day or night, preferably after a meal.
This guideline is composed from general suggestions from professionals around the web. There are no 'protocols' as such developed for personal situations. This is not meant as a prescription, only a guideline! There does not appear to be an upper limit of 'safe' ingestion...we HIGHLY ENCOURAGE you to do your own research, and find what works for you!
Ounce, milliliter, drop, and CBD mg conversions:
1 fluid ounce = 30ml = 990 drops = 990mg cannabidiol (CBD)
1ml = 33 drops
33 drops = 33mg cannabidiol (CBD)
15 drops = 15mg cannabidiol (CBD)
990 drops = 990mg cannabidiol (CBD)
If 15 drops are taken twice a day, 1 ounce (30ml) of CBD oil will last 30 days.
