Frequently asked questions
What's the best way to intake CBD?
CBD tincture is the easiest way for CBD intake. Just fill-up the dropper, manage the oil under your tongue, and hold it for 30-90 seconds before swallowing it. You need to keep an eye on its intake. A dropper usually holds 1 ml of liquid, so set your dosage according to it. We recommend starting from the lowest scale and gradually increasing it to a higher range according to your need. It's just an estimated method (not 100% accurate).
Vaping CBD is the second option. A CBD cartridge or a CBD e-liquid can be used for vaping CBD. Vaping is quite easy and offers a pleasurable moment. To estimate the amount of CBD in the cartridge, simply use the tincture method. Still, it's just an estimated way and not 100% accurate.
The third and most accurate method for measuring the exact amount of CBD is by capsules. Capsules come with a variety of different dosage bottles and are the most accurate ones on our list. If you are prescribed for a dose between 18 to 25 mg, we recommend you buy a bottle of 20 – 25 mg CBD capsules. That would be better for you. You can increase the dosage of tablets if needed.
Why do we use MCT oil?
Studies have shown carrier oil can strengthening CBD’s absorption up to 4x and over all bioavailability. It also help maintain stability and potency for long lasting freshness. The three most common carrier oil are: MCT oil, Olive oil, Hemp seed oil.
We learn that Olive oil require more processing and absorption than MCT oil, result in less bioavailability.
With Hemp seed oil, it is often too strong with natural flavor. On top of that, many companies out there try to label hemp seed oil as CBD oil, which make it harder to differentiate the real CBD.
As the result , MCT is the winner in our products with the thin texture and a smooth taste.
Does CBD oil get you high?
No, CBD oil will not get you high. THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the one that gives psychoactive effects. Naturally all pure full spectrum CBD oil created from the hemp plant, which is low in THC. It would take a lot of CBD for you to get a “high” feeling. However, if you wish to avoid any interaction with THC, choose our Broad spectrum ( link to why chose broad spectrum blog) which is THC free.
How does CBD oil make you feel?
We all differ genetically, so it's possible that our body doesn't respond to it in a way someone else's body does. Most commonly, some users feel more relaxed and at ease; some feel more focused and alerted.
Will it show up on the drug test?
Nowadays, employees are subject to drug tests by employers, and the consequences of failing a drug test can be disastrous for some. Drug tests are typically looking to detect the presence of THC, tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, in addition to other controlled substances. Hemp has a high amount of CBD with trace of THC, and with that little trace amounts of THC are enough to possibly fail a test.
A positive drug test can be triggered by:
Sensitivity of the test: Some tests are easier to trigger than others, some can vary from 15 nanograms - 50 nanograms of THC per milliliter (A nanogram is approximately one-billionth of a gram).
Product type: At MQ By Design, our full spectrum products come with low amounts of THC, and THC-Free has the result of “ND”-Non detected. However, it can still be detected by a highly sensitive drug test.
Duration of use: those who were on full spectrum could have more risk than ones just started.
Dosage: larger daily use of CBD dosage will obviously bring you higher risk.
Is Hemp oil the same as CBD oil?
No, hemp oil is not the same as CBD oil. Hemp seed oil only comes from the small seeds of the Cannabis Sativa plant, while CBD oil is produced using stalks, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant that contains a significantly higher concentration of CBD.

Will CBD interact with my other medications?
It's complicated in some scenarios. Some experts say that CBD, if used with blood-thinningmedicines or anti-depressants, can cause a reaction to your body and can result severely. Others say that it all depends on genetics. Some human bodies will have no negative impact on health at all if used with other medicines.We recommend NOT to take CBD with your regular medicines. Instead, take a gap of 45 - 60 minutes between them.
Mixing CBD with Alcohol?
Research shows that CBD may protect one against alcohol's harmful side effects. Another study shows that CBD lowers blood alcohol level, but that only happens if you take a massive dose of CBD, nearly 5-10 times more than regular dosage.
However, mixing CBD with alcohol can also affect differently on different individuals. Again we would recommend getting a proper prescription of it.

How does CBD work?
As CBD enters your body it interacts with the cannabinoid receptors in the endocannabinoid system. This system helps balance the most important systems in our bodies. When CBD is built up in the body over time, it has the potential to increase cannabinoid receptors. With more cannabinoid receptors, the endocannabinoid system becomes more active.
