Frequently Asked Questions

How to enjoy CBD?

One of the most common ways to enjoy CBD is by using the oral drops. Put a few drops under the tongue 2-3 times a day. Allow one minute to pass before swallowing for maximum absorption. Each drop from the pipette contains 5mg of CBD, so you can enjoy the benefits of this unique supplement on a daily basis.

Each 10ml bottle consists of 200 drops. Do not exceed more than 10 drops in any 24hr period. Please also check with a medical practitioner before taking CBD products. CBD is a food supplement and is intended to be taken as part of a varied and healthy lifestyle. 

Should I start with 1000mg?

We are often asked this question and it's not a straight answer as everyone is different. It's also complicated by the market and all of the options available. Some people feel the effects of CBD straight away, while others notice the beneficial effects over a longer period. The good thing is that at Papilio Products, we can guarantee our oral drops are of the highest quality, with no contamination. So with 1000MG in a 10ml bottle you know that you are getting a good amount of CBD. If you aren't sure where to start, then just begin with one drop. You are welcome to contact us anytime if you have any questions.

Can I take CBD with other medication?

We strongly advise that you speak to your own medical practitioner or nutritionalist before taking CBD products.

What are the most effective methods of taking CBD?

Either Absorption or Ingestion are the best ways to take CBD for best effect.  

Absorption is the process of a substance moving from its site of delivery into the bloodstream.  This could be in the form of CBD creams, balms or gels.

Ingestion is consumption by eating or drinking and is probably the simplest and oldest method. The food or substance is absorbed through the lining of the stomach and small intestine and enters the bloodstream.  This would relate especially to CBD gummies. CBD oral drops are best absorbed directly under the tongue, through our sublingual glands.

Other products like bath bombs, bubble bath or bath salts are less likely to work as they are not absorbed or ingested – however as you relax into a bubble bath, this is likely to have an aromatherapeutic effect.

What is the difference between broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD?

In the UK it is illegal to sell CBD Oil containing more than 0.2 per cent THC. Therefore manufacturers offer three common extracts;

  • Full spectrum – This is where the CBD Oil contains legal trace amounts of THC alongside other compounds found in the plant.

  • Broad spectrum – Contains zero THC, but maintains the other good compounds in the plant.

  • Isolate – This is pure CBD, all other compounds are removed and tends to sell a lot cheaper.

Does CBD make you high?

Now this is a common misconception. CBD Oil is extracted from the cannabis plant; however, the THC is removed so there are no psychoactive effects. We are proud to be working with industry leading experts who use supercritical CO2 extraction. This is the most expensive method of production. It helps preserve all of the beneficial compounds of CBD, ensures zero contamination creating the finest, most pure CBD Oil.

How much CBD should I take?

If you are new to CBD, it is a good idea to start slowly and build up until you find the dosage that feels right to you – the ‘up-titration method’.  In her informative guide, The CBD Book (Harper Collins), author Mary Biles suggests the following strategy for someone suffering with stress and anxiety:

Week 1: Begin by taking 2mg, three times a day.  After a week there is no change.

Week 2: You increase the dose to 4mg, three times a day.  Your stress levels start to reduce.

Week 3: The dose is increased to 5mg, three times a day and you are feeling a lot calmer.  

Week 4: You increase the dose to 6mg, three times a day and notice no further improvement.

Week 5: You reduce the dose back to 5mg, three times a day.  This is your sweet spot.

Storage and directions for use?
