CBD x5: Cannabidiol CO2 extract from industrial hemp plant based in MCT Coconut oil and hemp essential oil. This hemp essential oil with CBD provides the full therapeutic action of the hemp plant without any psychoactive THC present. We also add Rosemary antioxidant to preserve freshness.
Our 'x5' formula has Frankincense CO2 extract, Myrrh CO2 extract, and Indian Sandalwood. These oils all syngerize nicely to provide a large range of therapeutic benefits and have research targeting the anti-cancer properties of these oils and resins.
Dosage Discussion: We formulated all sizes of our CBD to be 1mg of CBD every 2 Drops (dropper included). We recommend starting with 5-10 mg (10-20 drops) to start, and ramping up from there to get the desired result.
Remember everyone's body reacts differently and some may need more or less CBD to target the problem. For even more information check out the CBD information in our drop down menu below.
Our CBD 'X5' contains pure CBD CO2 extract, Frankincense Carteri CO2 extract, Sandalwood Essential Oil, Myrrh CO2 extract, and Hemp essential oil, based in MCT Coconut oil with a very small amount of Rosemary Antioxidant for preservation. This formula contains 1mg CBD per two each drops.

CBD, or Cannabidiol, has been researched for anti-cancer properties1,2. We've blended CBD with CO2-distilled oils with research supporting their potential anti-cancer actions.*
CBD is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid in hemp/cannabis. Our CBD oil extract is a full spectrum extract of a Hemp strain of Cannabis sativa. Hemp is ideal for cannabidiol (CBD oil) extractions as it is naturally high in CBD and low in THC. Because of the extraction from legally grown and extracted Hemp, it is legal for shipment to all 50 states.
The CBD oil is extracted through a high pressured, supercritical CO2 extraction (as all our CO2 oils are), and the raw CBD oil is further refined to remove plant waxes and further concentrate the available CBD. Each batch of the final CBD oil is analyzed via High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) to quantify its purity, and guarantee you receive precise amounts of CBD in each and every one of our formulations.
Our cannabidiol (CBD oil) extract is a full spectrum cannabinoid extract. Besides the high content of CBD there are also present naturally occurring trace amounts of other cannabinoids, which many scientists and doctors think work in synergy to support the whole human endo-cannabinoid system.
Frankincense is perhaps the most thoroughly-researched essential oil for anti-cancer actions.3,4 Each of the Frankincense varieties studied have shown such properties in the laboratory, and clinical trials are planned. The CO2-distillation of Frankincense carteri included in this blend includes a greater percentage of the larger molecules found in the resin itself, and is highly regarded by leading aromatherapists for its therapeutic potential.*
Both Sandalwood and Myrrh have also significant bodies of research noting anit-cancer actions in the laboratory as well. Myrrh has been studied in comparison to Frankincense, and found to be a potentially stronger anti-cancer agent. Sandalwood, too is supportive in this respect.
MCT Coconut oil is used to emulsify the CBD CO2 extract for more simple and accurate use. Whereas some formulators use Hempseed oil, it does contain oxalic acid, which may be contraindicated for some users (in particular, for children whom experience seizures). We DO actually recommend supplementation with Hempseed oil if this is safe for you – it's exceptionally good for you in many ways.
This MCT fraction of coconut oil is the Medium Chain Triglycerides, which make up 62% of Virgin Coconut oil. It is also often used as a dietary supplement, and has an exceptionally long natural shelf life (relative to Olive oil, which is also used for emulsifying CBD extracts). We think this is the very best choice for retaining all properties of the formula for the longest time (shelf life is over 2 years). We've also added organic Rosemary antioxidant to every formula - the VERY best antioxidant available!
We also package our CBD formulas in Miron Glass Violet bottles. The 'high-tech' Violet Glass has the greatest resistance to UV light penetration of any glass container, and is even thought to enhance the activity of natural products within it by letting only a small window of the light spectrum through it. This particular wavelength is considered to have "vibrationally-enhancing" properties by the Swiss manufacturer.
Use and Serving Size: Shake well before using. The amount of CBD oil that people take on a daily basis can vary greatly. We encourage our customers to experiment with their intake, and do their own research for optimal intake for their specific needs. CBD oil can be ingested morning or night, on an empty or full stomach.
Note that cannabinoid compounds have 'biphasic' properties, whereby small doses and high doses of the same substance can produce opposite effects. CBD has no known adverse side effects at any dose, but 'too much,' while not harmful, could be less effective therapeutically than a moderate dose.
