HOW TO USE
Aqua drops contain 400mg of water soluble CBD and CBDA in a 10ml bottle.
1 Drop = 1mg CBD
Taken under the tongue (sub-lingually) CBD aqua drops are highly bioavailable. Simply hold the desired amount under the tongue for 1 – 2 minutes before swallowing. The drops can also be added to a drink to make them more palatable.
We suggest starting with a dose of 5mg - 5 drops - between one and three times per day. This can be increased gradually until you find the preferred dose. Do NOT take more than 200mg per day.
Aqua drops can be taken with or without food but preferably 20 - 30mins after a meal as they may lower your blood sugar.
CBD (cannabidiol) is an extract from the cannabis or hemp plant that has no psychoactive properties and is classified as a food supplement in the UK. This means it will not produce a “high”. The Government, therefore, has recently decided that it is legal to grow, sell and consume CBD.
CBD has been shown to be effective in reducing symptoms of a number of medical conditions and this has been well documented. It has been known and used for thousands of years to treat many debilitating diseases. On top of this the fibre from the hemp plant has been used to make rope, sails and clothes.
The cannabis plant is one of the most important on our planet and its place in medicine and many other commercial areas is at last being recognised.
Most publications report that CBD is non-toxic and well tolerated with very few side effects. Any side effects that have been reported are minor. However, you should be aware of the potential effects listed below:
CBD may have an impact on liver enzymes which could affect the way in which pharmaceutical drugs are metabolised. This means that if you are taking medicinal products their effectiveness may be decreased or increased. However, this is reported as a potential and has not been verified in clinical trials.
Dry mouth can occur with CBD but is easily corrected with a glass of water.
Light headedness, as a result of a small drop in blood pressure, has been known but is normally only caused within a few minutes of inhaling via a vape device and tends to alleviate quite quickly.
Drowsiness, particularly with high doses of CBD, is the most common side effect although still quite rare. If you are affected, then you should not drive or operate machinery.
In daily doses of 300mg or higher it has been reported by two patients with Parkinsonism* that their tremors got worse. This effect was quickly reversed by reducing the dose.
If you feel drowsy after taking CBD you should not drive or operate machinery.
No cases of overdose of CBD have been recorded.
