Sensi Seeds’ CBD Oil 5% (500 mg) is made from pesticide and herbicide-free, EU-grown hemp plants. It contains high-quality cannabidiol, and other natural substances that enhance its effect on the body. The oil is suitable for both vegans and vegetarians, and is entirely gluten-free. Use twice a day, by placing up to ½ ml (15 drops) beneath the tongue.
CBD Oil 5% contains CBD extracted from EU-grown hemp, with additional certified organic hemp oil. It’s rich in high-quality cannabidiol, and its THC levels are less than 0.05%, which means it won’t produce a high. Like all our CBD products, it’s suitable for vegetarians and vegans, and contains no gluten.
How is CBD Oil 5% produced?
The first step is to harvest the hemp leaves, then allow them to dry for four hours. After this, the leaves are compressed into pellets, then the ingredients are taken out, via supercritical CO2 extraction.
These ingredients are dehydrated and decarboxylated, which produces the CBD. This is combined with organic hempseed oil, which enables better absorption in the body.
There are several other substances in our CBD Oil. These include: cannabinol (CBN), cannabigerol (CBG), and cannabichromene (CBC), which are all phytocannabinoids. There are also terpenes in the oil, such as linalool, limonene, myrcene, phytol, humulene, alpha and beta-pinene, caryophyllene, and caryophyllene oxide. Lastly, several other natural substances are included, like amino acids and sugars, flavonoids, ketones, vitamins, nitrogenous compounds, alkanes, aldehydes, and pigments.
These ingredients work together in what is known as the entourage effect to enhance the CBD oil, making it a more effective food supplement.
The effects, appearance, and taste of CBD Oil 5%
This CBD Oil is 5% CBD (500 mg). It’s a moderate concentration, which is suitable for most people, though new users may prefer to start with the 2.75% CBD Oil instead. Alternatively, if you’d prefer a more potent version, try the 10% CBD Oil. None of our CBD products produce a high, as the THC levels are negligible.
The tincture is a distinctive green-brown colour, and sometimes has some sediment at the bottom. Rest assured, this is normal, and doesn’t affect the quality of the oil. The taste is grassy and earthy, with strong notes of hemp. It’s an acquired taste – some people rate it highly, while others prefer to wash it down with water afterwards. For those who don’t like the taste, we also have a range of CBD capsules.
How to use CBD Oil 5%
This dietary supplement is easy to use. Apply up to 15 drops under your tongue, twice a day. Make sure to hold the drops in your mouth for around 60 seconds before swallowing. Avoid placing the dropper directly in your mouth, as this may contaminate the oil. A single drop of oil contains approximately 1.81 mg of CBD.
