Frequently Asked Questions
600 mg Relieve contains 20 mg of CBD per 1 ml dropper (5 mg of CBD per 1/4 ml serving). A bottle contains 120 servings.
Since it contains twice the CBD as Balance, the flavor of 600 mg Relieve may be slightly stronger than 300 mg Balance. Our tinctures contain only 100% USDA Certified Organic MCT Oil (Coconut Oil) and extract derived from 100% USDA Certified Organic Hemp.
- It’s important to know where CBD is sourced from. One industrial use for some hemp is phytoremediation, a process that uses plants to filter contaminants like heavy metals out of soil… because of this, it’s crucial that the CBD tincture you ingest is derived from hemp plants that are responsibly grown in clean soil.
- Our CBD tinctures are made in the USA and derived from a special strain of high-CBD hemp cultivated specifically for this purpose.
- Our gentle thermal extraction process that uses zero solvents. “Flash activation” preserves the source plant’s full cannabinoid and terpene profile to ensure a truly full-spectrum extract.
- Our hemp is organically grown with biodynamic farming practices, which means it’s cultivated with a unique zero-waste process that is ecological and ethical.
We lab-test multiple times throughout the hemp growing and extraction process: During growth, the hemp plants are tested for pesticides; after extraction, the CBD tincture is re-tested for pesticides and additionally tested for heavy metals, microbes and solvents.
Our plants are 100% USDA Certified Organic Industrial Hemp (Organic Certifiers).
The ECS is a complex system in the human body that is understood to modulate all physiological processes throughout the brain and body, including the management of appetite, pain, sleep and mood. The purpose of this system is whole-body homeostasis (or balance), the optimal state for maintaining health and natural healing.
Cannabinoids like CBD interact with the ECS by binding directly or indirectly to ECS receptors and acting like chemical messengers to turn on or turn off physiologic signaling in the body.
Whole-body homeostasis means the body can concentrate on what it does best: natural healing and an overall sense of wellness.
A lot of people associate CBD with mind-body balance, wellness and calm. It’s also often chosen to encourage evening relaxation, restful sleep or post-exercise relief.
Users might experience the effects of CBD differently. Many people use it to achieve mind-body balance. They say it contributes to their general feeling of wellness. A lot of people use it for relaxation and restful sleep, and some use it for relief after exercise.
“How effective” CBD is comes down to a user’s individualized wants or needs. For some, an appreciable or noticeable effect is not the goal. For those with goals in mind, feeling the desired effects is a clear indicator that CBD is “working.”
We suggest taking stock of your general sense of wellness before starting, then re-assessing a month later. Some questions people ask themselves might include: How’s my mood lately? How does my body feel? Is my mind-body balance good or does it feel off? Do I feel generally well?
Our position reflects what research suggests: Whole-plant extracts are more beneficial because of the entourage effect. Based on the idea that the effectiveness of CBD is enhanced by the “entourage effect,” our full-spectrum hemp-derived CBD tinctures contain the cannabinoids and beneficial terpenes of their source plants.
All BLOOM FARMS CBD products are designed to be as close to the source plant as possible.
Generally speaking, it is common for users to begin with 1 serving and increase the number of servings consumed at a time until a desired effect is achieved. Some people will find benefit with just our single serving size (2.5 mg using Balance or 5 mg using Relieve), but it is also common for users to consume CBD in increments of 10 mg, 20 mg or 50 mg at a time. This is why best results are achieved by starting with the smallest serving size and increasing the number of servings over time until the desired effect is attained.
An average human can tolerate 20 mg per kilogram of body weight on a daily basis without experiencing negative effects, so it is not uncommon for users to ingest 50 mg or more depending on the intent of use.
Determining the “ideal” number of servings for an individual depends on several factors, including body chemistry, weight, health, prescription medications, sensitivity to CBD and desired effect.
We cannot provide individualized usage guidelines.
An average human can tolerate 20 mg per kilogram of body weight on a daily basis without experiencing negative effects. CBD is known to be alerting and energizing at very small amounts (1-2.5 mg) and known to cause drowsiness at extremely high amounts (100 mg to 1 g).
That said, some individuals have reported “altered” states of mind, light-headedness, imbalance and drowsiness at varying serving amounts… and at very high amounts, some users have reported gastrointestinal (GI) upset. It is not clear whether these effects are due to placebo, the CBD or possibly other plant compounds.
If you feel you have an adverse experience, stop using the tincture immediately, seek medical attention if warranted and consult with a trusted medical professional.
If an altered state or drowsiness is experienced, it’s important to avoid driving, operating heavy machinery or using sharp or other dangerous tools.
If you experience drowsiness and perceive this as an unwanted effect, the amount you use should be reduced or the product shouldn’t be consumed at all. If drowsiness does occur, it’s important to avoid driving, operating heavy machinery or using sharp or other dangerous tools.
It is not clear whether these effects are due to placebo, the CBD or possibly other plant compounds.
People who are concerned about drowsiness or other effects can take it in the evening or before bed.
We created a daily tracker that can be used to help you “Find Your Balance.”
Depending on the desired effect or intent of use, the effects of CBD may take several weeks to appreciate—even with daily use. For sustained effects, daily use is ideal.
