CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound found in the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant that is used in products such as oils and edibles to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm.

People can use CBD to help manage a number of ailments, including:

- Chronic pain
- Inflammation
- Anxiety
- Insomnia
- Seizures such as epileptic seizures

The body condition of each person is different. Certain food or supplements may bring benefits to you, but some others don’t. That said, there are also some legitimate reasons why CBD might not be working for you. Before treating a medical condition, speak to your doctor to determine whether CBD can be a good option for you, especially if you’re taking other medications. CBD may interact with certain over-the-counter or prescription drugs and supplements.

- Relieving pain, especially for big dogs frequently having joint pain
- Helping aged pets with digestive issues or disorders
- Helping pets de-stress and stay calm
- Easing nausea and epileptic seizures
- Relieving certain symptoms of cancer

The United States has its own federal standards and guidelines for CBD products made in the country, some of which are in fact commonly known as the highest standards in the world.

Do not buy from any vendors claiming either their CBD products or they are manufacturers certified or approved by FDA. The US Department of Agriculture and FDA are different authorities. It should be noted that FDA has not yet approved any CBD-containing drug products other than one prescription drug for the treatment of seizures associated with tuberous sclerosis complex, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome in human patients.

The World Health Organization has acknowledged CBD as a safe product that does not cause dependency. Not only is CBD non-addictive, but it also does not produce intoxicating effects. The most common reaction to CBD oil is the sensation of dryness in the mouth. This is typical to all cannabis products and results from the effect of cannabinoids on salivation. You can avoid this side effect by staying well hydrated after applying CBD oil. Experiencing dizziness due to lowered blood pressure is also common among CBD users. At extremely high doses, CBD can cause diarrhea and nausea. Basically it happens when you take more than your body can handle, so you simply flush the excess oil out of your system.

Not only is CBD safe and non-addictive, but it also does not produce intoxicating effects. Moreover, White Banana only markets quality CBD brands with products that are derived from organic hemp, to help prevent psychoactive experience.

CBD oil is hemp extract—a viscous oil enriched with phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and other beneficial molecules. When you mix CBD with another carrier oil, such as MCT oil or extra virgin olive oil, it becomes a tincture. Alternately, some companies use alcohol to extract phytocannabinoids from hemp plant material. Manufacturers then strain the mixture and bottle the alcohol and CBD.

The most common way to take a CBD tincture is to draw the hemp extract into a dropper and release it into the mouth. For pets, we suggest you put the tincture oil in their daily food.

Everybody has different needs, tolerances, and preferences. In general, for beginners, we recommend a 1 dropper of CBD tincture oil (15mg) per day to start. Take more as needed.

The effects of CBD depend on a variety of factors, such as weight, sex, whether it is taken on an empty stomach or not, etc. However, even if we account for those factors, we should always keep in mind that everyone is body is different.
We should also not forget that people take CBD for a variety of purposes, which is why their definition of ‘desired effects’ differs as well.

Dosage Standard: 0.2 mg per lb/ 0.45kg.

For example, if you have a Labrador that is 60 lbs/ 27.3 kg, you may want to feed your dog one full dropper a day (15mg). And if you have a cat that is 10 lbs/ 4kg, the cat may a quarter dropper a day (say 3-4mg).

The suggestion of volume here is based on JoyOrganics Broad Spectrum Tincture Oil 30ml/ 450mg for human and Pet CBD Tincture (30ml/ 450mg)

Feeling the effects of CBD tinctures is dependent on a person’s metabolism, diet, and tolerance to CBD. In general, CBD tinctures work faster than other forms of CBD (such as gummies or softgels) because some of the phytocannabinoids get absorbed in the mouth. Some people might feel effects instantaneously, while others may need to wait anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.

Since CBD tinctures are absorbed quicker, we metabolize the phytocannabinoids faster. While you can feel the benefits of most CBD products for up to eight hours, the benefits of CBD tinctures tend to last between four and six hours.

Store your CBD tincture in a dry area with little sunlight. If you follow proper storage methods, a CBD tincture can last about 18 months.
