3.CBD health benefits are remarkable
Cannabidiol is a popular natural resource for many common ailments:
4. CBD doesn’t get you high
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is famous for its psychoactive effects when used with marijuana and cannabis. CBD has positive impacts on the body and is mainly used for patients dealing with anxiety or depression. CBD oil might contain THC, but it’s a very low amount 0.3 percent by weight.
As far as studies are concerned, CBD does not make you high.
5.CBD dosage varies by consumer
So far there is no research that can pinpoint on a clear dosage. Studies have shown a very broad range, from as little as 1 milligram to as much as 1,500 milligrams per day.
Best way to figure out is to start out low and monitor your body reaction. A minimal dose of 5 milligram a day to start and gradually increase over time with close attention to the effects of different amounts.
6.CBD can be given to pets
CBD oil has been showing a positive impact on dogs with ailments like joint pain, anxiety and aging. It also aids with digestion, supports and protects the immune system and good heart health However, it’s important to be precautionary on how and when to give CBD to your dogs.
7.Quality CBD is expensive
Average CBD price is around $0.15 per milligram. Therefore, a standard 30ml tincture with 500mg of CBD can cost you around $75, without tax. Some companies provide standard shipping with qualified purchase.
Prices are usually determined by the method of production, the overall level of potency and CBD prices are primarily determined by the method of production, quality of raw materials used and the overall level of potency.
8.CBD impacts on the skin by topical products
Dermatologists and skin specialists often say that using CBD on the skin can help improve dryness and hydrate it. Its anti-inflammatory effect can make the skin glow. Its ability to fight breakouts and inflammations explain why CBD is now standard in most skin products for healing conditions such as Eczema and Psoriasis. CBD oil is also considered a powerful antioxidant and can help fasten healing time. In addition, CBD might also be effective in fighting acne as it helps reduce the production of sebum in the skin.
9.CBD interactions with other medications
It's complicated in some scenarios. Some experts say that CBD, if used with blood-
thinning medicines 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 between them, between 60- 90 minutes.
Always check with your health provider before using CBD products to insure the best interest of your health.
10.CBD oil and drug test
Drug tests only identify Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or its metabolites. They do not screen for CBD. As it said , full spectrum CBD contains a low amount of THC, and it will show up on drug tests if enough THC is present. This means that in rare cases, using a high amount of full spectrum CBD products might lead to a positive drug test. Depending on various factors, you could fail a test if you use around 2,500mg of CBD with 0.3% THC each day.
11. Certificate of analysis (COA ) from Third Party Testing
A law-abiding CBD company should have COA (Certificate of Analysis) reports on each product they carry, which shows a total list of cannabinoids, terpenes, microbiological levels, and possible contaminants such as solvent residue, pesticides or heavy metals .
Unethical CBD manufacturers can be inflating or lying about their CBD content, or even selling products that may have been contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, or other harmful ingredients.
On the other hand, good manufacturers pay to have their products tested by an independent lab and will display the lab results for each batch to publicly show that what they advertise on the bottle is what you’re really getting. If what you currently taking has not been lab tested you may want to consider finding a more reputable CBD brand. As it’s currently a highly unregulated industry, and third party testing isn’t required, the market is flooded with low quality products. Unethical companies are selling products that contain harmful ingredients, which can become harmful to consumers.
However, at MQ By Design, we believe in our product and its high quality standard.
We want to show you our commitment to our Customers and Affiliates by not only processing our premium hemp in a GMP certified facility with supercritical co2 extraction to ensure the highest quality.

12.CO2 extraction method is better
Higher end CBD products are extracted by CO2 as the solvent. Oils, capsules and the like made from the method may have a higher degree of usability for a longer period of time due to the high amount of CBD.
On the other hand, the lower grade products are extracted by using harsh chemicals ( butane, kerosene, ethanol, etc ) as the solvent. At MQ By Design, we use Supercritical CO2 method to ensure our quality and purity.
