Frequently Asked Questions
Cannabidiol (shortened to CBD) is an organic compound found inside the hemp plant. CBD can interact with a vast network of receptors found inside all of us, causing many unique effects on the mind and body. However, CBD isn't the only molecule that can influence the human body, as it belongs to a broader group called cannabinoids. Read more about CBD.
Cannabinoids are a group of compounds that includes CBD and other well-known chemicals such as THC, CBC, and CBG. In nature, cannabinoids work alongside other molecules to help plants produce enzymes and deter pests. However, when humans consume cannabinoids via oils or capsules, there's the potential to influence functions such as sleep, appetite, mood, and more. Read more about cannabinoids.
To transform CBD into an everyday wellness product, the compound is extracted from plant material, added to a carrier oil, and bottled before being sold as CBD oil. While the oil improves how well it's absorbed in the body, the most important factor of CBD oil is the quality and spectrum. Full-spectrum CBD oils are most effective, thanks to the entourage effect. Read more about CBD oil.
The entourage effect focuses on the concept of chemical synergy. In the case of cannabinoids, the individual compounds come together and augment each other's influence to a degree they can't achieve independently. The most effective way to take advantage of the entourage effect is with full-spectrum CBD products like Cibdol's CBD Oil 2.0. Read more about the entourage effect.
Terpenes: Aromatic molecules that produce synergistic effects. They exist in hundreds of different foods and vegetables, making them a core component of a healthy and balanced lifestyle.Read more about terpenes.
Flavonoids are tiny phytonutrients that exist in the skin and outer layers of fruits, vegetables, and plants. Every colour represents a different flavonoid, and helps attract pollinators, filter UV light, or protect against disease.
Fortunately, the protective qualities of flavonoids could extend to more than just plants and food. When people consume flavonoids, researchers have discovered the compounds to display some exciting possibilities as natural antioxidants.Read more about flavonoids.
You can take CBD Oil by putting it directly under your tongue (that part of the mouth is a capillary-rich area and so the CBD will reach your bloodstream quicker). Try dropping a dose of CBD under your tongue and holding it there for a minute before swallowing.
It is recommended to spread out your intake moments of CBD oil optimally throughout the day. Preferably in the morning around breakfast, during midday around lunch, and the third and final intake moment is in the evening. We recommend building as much consistency with your intake times as possible to help you achieve the best results. Taking CBD oil at the same times each day can help you establish a routine and make it easier to remember to take your dosage.
In order to experience the benefits of CBD Oil, it is important to build up your CBD level. Doing so can take up to 7 days. Dosing CBD Oil at regular intervals will keep your levels in check throughout the day for the best results.
It is generally recommended to start with a low dosage and gradually increase it until you find the optimal amount that works for you. To find your perfect personal dosage, you can take one more drop at every interval. Try this dosage for 7 days consistently and slightly adjust again if needed.
Answering this question accurately would take several articles, but to give you the abridged version—there is not an ideal amount of CBD to take. The most effective dose will depend on factors such as:
Fortunately, the CBD dosage calculator does the hard work for you, calculating these variables to give an estimated starting dose. By the time you've answered several lifestyle questions, the CBD dosage calculator will provide a daily total of CBD in milligrams.

This custom tool uses average values to provide an estimated dosage and frequency. Simply enter your gender, height, weight, age, and overall experience with CBD, and the dosage calculator does the rest. It will provide a daily recommendation (in milligrams and CBD oil drops), along with a product suggestion. If you're entirely new to CBD, our calculator is a fantastic way of establishing a baseline dose. Even for experienced users, it can prove useful if your current regime is no longer sufficient and you're changing to a more concentrated oil.
However, due to the complexity of the human body, it's impossible to give detailed or optimal dosage recommendations. Instead, we advise experimenting with different routines to find what truly works for you. Alternatively, speak to your doctor or physician, who may be able to give tailored advice on the amount of CBD to take.
To help you calculate the amount (mg) of CBD you'll be taking, you can use the following as a guide:
Frequently Asked Questions
To dramatically improve the efficacy and the speed of CBD effects, we strongly recommend consuming sublingually (under the tongue).
CBD products taken sublingually by-pass the digestive system and enter the bloodstream via tiny capillaries under the tongue and inside the cheeks. Alternatively, substances consumed orally not only take longer to travel through our digestive tract, but they must contend with stomach acids and other elements, reducing the level of active ingredients.
Fortunately, sublingual consumption by-passes this entire process, giving CBD a short cut to the bloodstream so it can circulate the body more easily. Not only is the onset of effects quicker, but they're more pronounced too.
Taking CBD oil under the tongue is straightforward, but if you find the technique difficult to master, try administering the drops in front of a mirror. Also, it's important to highlight that not all of the liquid will be absorbed. Don't worry, though, any remaining oil is perfectly safe to swallow and means you'll also get some of the benefits of oral consumption—albeit at a reduced rate.
Shake the bottle well before use, and squeeze the top of the dropper to fill it with the required amount of CBD extract. Whether you take CBD oil on or under the tongue, for best results, hold the liquid in your mouth for 60 seconds before swallowing.
Generally, effects will begin approximately 40-60 minutes after consumption, with the . When taken sublingually, results start much more quickly due to fast absorption by the oral mucosa. However, be aware that the impact of sublingual CBD does not last as long compared to oral consumption.
Depending on your lifestyle, you may want to mix up the way you consume CBD oil. For the best CBD experience, experiment with different consumption methods to find out which one suits your lifestyle and needs.
Light, heat, and air exposure all play a part in the breakdown of natural cannabinoids like CBD, so it is essential to defend against them. Your CBD won't become unsafe to consume if it's left exposed to these elements, but it will lose its potency. When storing CBD oil, avoid direct sunlight and keep the bottle sealed when not in use.
A kitchen cabinet at home or desk drawer in the office fully meets these requirements. Ideally, the temperature of the storage environment should be between 6-20°C. You won't need to worry about small fluctuations, but excessively high temperatures will, again, degrade and destroy the active ingredients.
Another option for storing CBD oil is the fridge, especially if it's for an extended period. Lower temperatures can, however, affect the colour and viscosity of the product, but don't be alarmed—this is perfectly normal. There might be some precipitation (looks like flakes falling out of the oil), but it will go away when it’s back at room temperature. There is no loss of potency, and it won't damage the product.
CBD oil is a perishable product, so it does have a shelf life—typically six months. Unless you're taking a very mild dose, you'll easily consume the entire bottle before reaching the expiry date, so don't worry about valuable CBD going to waste.
Under the right conditions, CBD may be useful beyond the expiration date, but we cannot guarantee the potency or effectiveness of its key ingredients.
If you don't plan on taking CBD oil for several months after buying it, you can freeze it until it's needed. However, please be aware this can upset the delicate balance of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids within. Additionally, the expiry date will no longer be correct, so you'll have to use your judgement to certify the integrity of the product.
Yes! Just like humans, both cats and dogs may benefit from the balancing influence of CBD. Just make sure you buy pet-specific CBD oil, as these have different ingredients to regular CBD oil. You can read more about pet-friendly CBD oil here.

Frequently Asked Questions
Full-spectrum CBD products contain as many of the natural compounds in hemp as possible to capitalise on the entourage effect. CBD Oil 2.0 has greatly enhanced the levels of dominant, non-toxic cannabinoids CBG, CBC, CBN, and CBDA to work alongside our golden-grade CBD. The result is a full-body experience that captures the full wellness potential of hemp in every drop.
CBN Cannabinol—A non-intoxicating compound with a soothing influence on well-being
CBG Cannabigerol—A cannabinoid that synergises perfectly with its fellow compounds
CBC Cannabichromene—A minor cannabinoid with enormous potential for mind and body
CBDa Cannabidiolic acid—Chemically similar to CBD, this raw cannabinoid is also non-intoxicating
Our state-of-the-art laboratory ensures every batch of CBD Oil 2.0 is the purest and most consistent available, while being entirely free of THC.
The full impact of CBD remains under review. Thus, we can make no claims about its potential to treat specific conditions.
What we can say, however, is that early research suggests the cannabinoid may have a host of future applications thanks to its activation of the endocannabinoid system.
By interacting and enhancing the network of receptors that exists inside all of us, researchers believe CBD could play a crucial role in:
What researchers are working diligently to understand is the full extent of the endocannabinoid system, and how using CBD daily could address specific conditions.
Although there is still a lot to learn, the number of published studies increases by the day and CBD’s potential is continually evolving.
For everyday use, CBD oil appears to exert a balancing influence on the endocannabinoid system. Rather than looking for a significant change in behaviour or mood, think of CBD as helping to smooth out the physiological peaks and troughs we experience every day.
Most of the time, this process happens organically, but it's when the challenges of modern living begin to stack up that our mind and body need support.
No matter the situation, the human body will always strive for harmony, balancing the needs of our different biological systems, much like a hanging mobile. And, just like a hanging mobile, it's perfectly normal for the body to shift out of its equilibrium temporarily.
Fortunately, our body will always try to return to its original, balanced state. However, it's the speed and efficacy of this transition that can cause problems. The longer your body is unbalanced, the greater the risk of disease and disorder.
CBD oil works to smooth out this natural process, helping your mind and body get back to a balanced state faster. Managing well-being is all about improving our body's baseline state, and that's where Cibdol oil appears to excel.
If you plan on using CBD oil to address a particular condition, it's important to highlight that its effects may vary from one individual to the next. You should always discuss CBD’s suitability with a doctor first, as they'll be able to offer case-specific advice.
Please note, CBD oil from Cibdol is not intended as a replacement for any form of medicine.
The entourage effect is unique to the Cannabis sativa species and the compounds that exist within. And, while all of these elements (including CBD) show promise on their own, it's when using a full-spectrum formula and not CBD isolate that oils provide the most significant therapeutic benefit.
Fortunately, all of our oils use a full-spectrum blend of these essential components, including the following minor cannabinoids:
Alongside the cannabinoids listed above, over twenty essential terpenes complement our full-spectrum formula. They play a crucial role in the entourage effect, while also having several beneficial properties of their own. For more information, our dedicated terpene library details the impact and benefits of each.
All of Cibdol's oils use a full-spectrum formula to maximise their benefit. However, to guarantee outstanding quality and safety, we expertly remove harmful concentrations of THC. All of our oils are non-toxic and won't produce psychotropic side effects.
CBD is derived from the leaves and flowers of a mature hemp plant using sophisticated extraction methods, purification, and distillation. To ensure unrivalled purity, our oils undergo several stages of production, each with industry-leading levels of quality control.
The first stage involves sourcing the finest, naturally grown European hemp, a crop abundant in CBD and inherently low in THC. Every bag of raw material is then sorted, by hand, and carefully milled into a fine powder. It's this powder which becomes the golden-grade hemp extract we use in all of our oils.
However, to transform raw hemp plants into wellness-boosting CBD requires expertise and state-of-the-art equipment. Fortunately, Cibdol not only has over a decade of experience, but our pharmaceutical-grade facilities have all the machinery necessary to produce pure CBD.
After securing the finest raw materials, the most crucial step in manufacturing CBD is isolating the relevant cannabinoids and terpenes via extraction. Although it's possible to use cheaper, faster methods of extraction, these techniques lack the purity and control of CO₂ extraction. They also risk destroying the smaller elements crucial to the entourage effect.
Cibdol employs supercritical CO₂ extraction because it allows an incredible degree of control. By subjecting CO₂ to specific conditions, it's possible to transform it into a state between a gas and a liquid. As this supercritical solution washes over raw plant material, it binds with crucial components without damaging them.
The resulting extract is packed full of all the cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids needed to produce pure CBD oil. To complete our CBD extract, further rounds of purification and distillation take place, with each stage refining the formula. By the time it comes to adding a carrier oil, the extract has reached golden-grade levels of purity.
During the final stages, we accurately label every bottle, providing crucial information such as product name, best before date, dosage recommendations, and the batch number. You can then use the batch number to cross-reference third-party test results on the Cibdol site.
Although at Cibdol we provide a hemp CBD oil, this isn't the same as the hemp seed oil you'll find on the shelves of supermarkets or high-street wellness stores.
The latter is made by cold-pressing hemp seeds, a part of the plant that's devoid of CBD and other cannabinoids. While it may provide some nutritional benefit, it won’t impact well-being in the same way. It's also significantly cheaper to produce, so if the price appears too good to be true, ensure you check the listed CBD oil ingredients.
The easiest way to tell the difference between the two oils is to verify their contents via third-party testing. Cibdol prides itself on product transparency, with extensive testing on all the oils we produce.
If you're ever unsure of what a bottle contains, you can check the ingredients via the detailed product description, or the CBD Analysis page. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact our customer service team or visit our comprehensive CBD Encyclopdia.
Alongside our traditional oil, we offer a wide selection of alternative carrier oils. Paired with our golden-grade extract, hemp oil, MCT oil, and black cumin seed oil provide dozens of secondary nutritional benefits.
Hemp oil, for example, contains an abundance of antioxidants alongside plant proteins and omega fatty acids 3 & 6. Black cumin seed oil is equally impactful, and won't disturb or upset the delicate balance of terpenes and cannabinoids in our full-spectrum formula. MCT oil (similar to coconut oil) is the perfect carrier for our high-strength CBD formula, dramatically improving the absorption rate, while being a good source of energy.
It's important you match the secondary nutritional benefits of each carrier oil with your own, specific wellness needs. For example, if your diet is already rich in omega 3 and 6, then hemp CBD oil is unlikely to prove beneficial.
Rest assured, no matter the carrier oil, all the products in our CBD oil range undergo the same strict quality control and third-party testing.
Cibdol's standard Oil, CBD Hemp Oil, and CBD Black Cumin Seed Oil all feature CBD extract in a range of concentrations to suit the user's desired outcome. By offering 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 and 40% oils, Cibdol will meet your wellness needs, no matter the situation.
If you're entirely new to cannabidiol, we recommend starting with a low-concentration oil until you become accustomed to its effects. The best approach is sticking to the same frequency and concentration for several days, before gradually increasing until you reach the desired dosage.
Our lower concentration formulas are ideal for everyday use, providing a mild boost to well-being. However, don't underestimate their impact. Even a few drops can be enough to stimulate well-being and promote a balanced state.
If, however, you have a specific wellness need, then consider trying a stronger concentration. You can rest assured that even our most concentrated oils are entirely free of any unwanted chemicals and harmful levels of THC.
Regardless of the concentration you pick, it usually takes 1-2 weeks before your body adjusts to the impact of CBD. So, even if it feels like nothing is happening, don't be tempted to increase your dose dramatically—remember, CBD is all about promoting balance.
The ideal oil concentration will vary according to your circumstances. And, while we have lots of information to help get you started, the most crucial piece of advice is "listen to your body". If you have any further concerns, or you want specific dosing advice, we highly recommended discussing the subject with a doctor or physician.
The long-term safety of CBD remains under investigation. However, there is an abundance of short to medium-term data, which, so far, looks encouraging.
A crucial part of that data is a comprehensive review by the World Health Organisation (WHO). The 2018 report examined all of the current research on CBD, establishing its impact on human health.
Their summary concluded that "in humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential". They went on to add that "CBD is generally well-tolerated with a good safety profile".
This is promising news for the overall viability and acceptance of CBD, especially given the supplements growing popularity. Many variables still need testing, but overall CBD oil appears safe, even in large doses. That is, of course, provided it doesn't come from a cannabis plant.
The compound, however, is not without fault. Some studies documented potential side effects from regular use of CBD. Depending on the circumstances, high-strength formulas may not be suitable for everyone.
Another critical aspect of CBD oil's safety profile is the introduction of consistent regulation. Recently, the European Union applied a novel foods status to all CBD products. For them to be safely sold throughout Europe, producers must prove that their products meet the following requirements:
• Fit for purpose
• Clearly labelled
• Safe for use
Cibdol is one of only three CBD producers in Europe to have applied for novel foods status and be on track for approval. This is a significant step, not only for us as producers but the entire CBD industry.
With an exact list of requirements, customers will be able to buy CBD oil, knowing they meet a safe and legitimate standard. Cibdol stands behind the novel foods status and has the expertise and equipment to exceed any safety requirements.
As we've highlighted above, studies have documented a list of potential side effects from regular use of high-concentration CBD oil. These appear incredibly mild, but include:
• Dry mouth
• Changes in appetite
• Interactions with some prescription medicine
Fortunately, because of the way the body processes CBD, the compound has a short half-life (the calculation of how long active ingredients remain effective inside the body), so any possible side effects have a short duration, dissipating quickly.
CBD can also interfere with the breakdown of certain prescription medications. This is the result of the cannabinoid's interaction with enzymes in the liver and may mean that medicines stay in the body for longer than intended. This interaction doesn't affect all types of prescription medication, but can include:
• Heart medications
If you are currently taking, or plan to take, prescription medication and CBD oil, we recommend speaking to your doctor as a precaution.
CBD oil is considered legal in the UK and is available without a prescription from your doctor. There are, however, several requirements all products must meet.
