10 Most Commonly Asked Questions About CBD Oil

CBD oil is one of the purest, most controlled ways to consume and reap the benefits of this popular cannabinoid. At Pure Sunfarms, we know consumers have lots of different questions about CBD oil. So, we’ve rounded up 10 of the most commonly asked questions we get about Pure Sun CBD Oil, and CBD oil in general, here for you.

ABOUT PURE SUN CBD OIL

1. What is Pure Sun CBD Oil made of?

Pure Sun CBD Oil features two simple, naturally-derived ingredients: pure CBD distillate made from Pure Sun CBD whole flower, and a natural MCT oil, which acts as the carrier oil. Our CBD distillate is made from BC-grown Pure Sun CBD (aka Cannatonic), which is hand-selected for its unique potential to produce consistently high-CBD flower. 

2. What formats of CBD oil does Pure Sunfarms offer?

Pure Sunfarms’ Pure Sun CBD Oil is available in either a 1:10 or 1:30 THC:CBD ratio. The difference between these two products is the ratio of CBD per mL of oil (i.e., our 1:30 format is three times more potent than our 1:10 format). Both products can be found in a 30mL glass bottle with a 1mL dropper.

3. How many mg of CBD is there in Pure Sun CBD Oil? 

Our 1:10 bottle contains 10mg of CBD per mL, and our 1:30 bottle contains 30mg of CBD per mL. This means that our 1:30 product is three times more potent, for consumers looking for more concentrated CBD oil. Here’s a breakdown:

1:10 Pure Sun CBD Oil*: 

  • 1mL contains approximately 10mg of CBD
  • 1mL contains approximately 1mg of THC 
  • 1 drop contains approximately 0.213mg of CBD
  • 1 drop contains approximately 0.0213mg of THC

1:30 Pure Sun CBD Oil*: 

  • 1mL contains approximately 30mg of CBD
  • 1mL contains approximately 1mg of THC 
  • 1 drop contains approximately 0.639mg of CBD
  • 1 drop contains approximately 0.0213mg of THC

* Concentrations may vary +/- 15% in accordance with Health Canada regulations.

4. Will I get ‘high’ if I take Pure Sun CBD Oil?

Many people report that CBD doesn’t produce the ‘high’ or feeling of impairment typically associated with THC. With less than 1mg of THC per mL in the 1:10 or 1:30 product formats, CBD is the dominant cannabinoid in Pure Sun CBD Oil. But as with any cannabis product, our best advice is to start low, go slow, and wait until you feel results before you take more.

5. What extraction method does Pure Sunfarms use to make CBD oil? 

Pure Sunfarms’ extraction process all starts with whole dried flower – BC-grown Pure Sun CBD specifically – as raw material. We then use a cold ethanol extraction process to maximize purity, resulting in quality CBD distillate. 

6. Is your CBD oil packaging recyclable?

Yes. At Pure Sunfarms, we strive to use packaging that minimizes our environmental footprint wherever possible, while maintaining the integrity of our product. That’s why we chose a recyclable glass bottle and outer box made of paperboard, materials that are recyclable in many municipalities across Canada.

7. Where can I buy your CBD oil? 

If Pure Sunfarms products are currently available in your province, chances are you will be able to find Pure Sun CBD Oil online or at participating licensed retailers locally. Find out what provinces currently offer Pure Sunfarms products or call your local retailer to find out if they carry Pure Sun CBD Oil.

ABOUT CBD OIL GENERALLY

8. What are some of the benefits of using CBD?

It is believed that CBD has many potential therapeutic benefits, from decreasing stress or anxiety to contributing to positive wellbeing. You can check out our blog post about Pure Sun CBD to learn more about CBD. 

9. How do I use CBD oil?

CBD oil is simple to use. Typically, you’ll ingest it by putting the oil under your tongue, holding it there for a moment, and then swallowing. You can increase or decrease your dose as needed. You can also add CBD oil to most cooking oils but be mindful of your cooking temperature. Here’s more information about cooking with CBD oil. When it comes to beverages, remember that CBD oil is not water-soluble, so it is probably easiest to use in a blended beverage, such as a smoothie. 

10. How much CBD oil should I take?

Before you try CBD oil, we recommend that you do your research. You can talk to your doctor, local budtender, and check out online resources like this article called ‘What is the Best Way to Take CBD’ to determine what might work best for you. It’s important to remember that everyone’s body reacts differently to a given amount, and concentrates may have stronger effects than those of dried flower. 

For under-the-tongue tinctures such as CBD oil, 2.5-5 mg of CBD is a common starting dose.

Our best advice is to start low, go slow, and wait until you feel results. Onset can take place anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour. Based on how you feel, you may increase or decrease the amount as needed. As always, please enjoy responsibly.
