On an empty stomach, put the desired amount of your By George! CBD tincture under your tongue. Let the oil absorb for 30-60 seconds, and then swallow the rest. Try to refrain from eating, drinking, or smoking for about 15 minutes after taking your tincture.
This method results in the highest bioavailability of the CBD by allowing it to absorb directly into your bloodstream. You can also add the tincture to food or drinks, but the bioavailability is substantially lower this way as the CBD is processed through your body’s digestive system.
All of our tinctures come in 30mL bottles, and each bottle contains approximately 30 one-mL droppers. So, the approximate dosage of CBD per full dropper of each of our tinctures is as follows:
-One full dropper of our 600mg tincture contains approximately 20mg of CBD;
-One full dropper of our 1200mg tincture contains approximately 40mg of CBD;
-One full dropper of our 1800mg tincture contains approximately 60mg of CBD;
-One full dropper of our 3000mg tincture contains approximately 100mg of CBD.
Most people experience benefits from taking 0.1-0.5mg of CBD per pound of body weight per day. Our guidance for dosage is to start low and adjust slow. Try starting at the low end of the range. For most people, a good starting point is 20mg per day. Try that for a few days. If you feel relief, congratulations! That’s your dosage. If not, try gradually adjusting upward until you find the amount that works for you.
There is no danger of “overdosing” or taking too much CBD other than the pain in your wallet for wasting money on taking more than you need. However, the effectiveness of CBD is distributed like a bell curve. That is, if you take too little CBD or too much CBD you will not experience the full benefits. So remember – start low, adjust slow, and if you have questions, let us know!!
If your pet will let you, while your pet has an empty stomach, put the drops right into his/her mouth. Our dogs won't let us do that, so we put the drops on a few pieces of food or on a treat. Because pets metabolize CBD faster than humans, it is best to spread their daily dose over two meals/treats throughout the day.
Most pets (and people!) experience best results when taking between 0.1-0.5mg of CBD per pound per day. We recommend starting at the low end of that range and increasing gradually if necessary. Our 20lb cocker spaniel Sweet Pea takes 2mg of CBD per day, and our 60lb husky OG takes 6mg of CBD per day. We spread that dose out over two administrations during the day.
Our pet tinctures come in 30ml bottles, and each bottle contains approximately 30 droppers full. So, the approximate dosage of CBD per full dropper of each of our pet tinctures is as follows:
-One dropper of our 60mg pet tincture contains approximately 2mg of CBD;
-One dropper of our 120mg pet tincture contains approximately 4mg of CBD;
-One dropper of our 300mg pet tincture contains approximately 10mg of CBD;
-One dropper of our 600mg pet tincture contains approximately 20mg of CBD.
As with humans, every pet is different. Our advice is to start low and adjust slow. If you don’t see any relief in your pet within a week, try adding a few drops. Or, if your pet’s behavior starts to change in an undesirable way, try reducing the dosage. Your veterinarian is your friend and can help you determine the right amount for your pet as well.
We offer two general categories of CBD products: oral and topical. Oral products are best for relief from total body symptoms (i.e. pain, anxiety, irregular sleep, mood disorders, inflammation, etc.). Topical products are best for targeted results (i.e. arthritis pain, sore muscles, cramps, inflammation).
The FDA prohibits us from making claims about the medical benefits of CBD, so we cannot advise whether our products will help people with certain conditions.
Instead, we direct our customers to Project CBD (a third-party site that is unaffiliated with By George! CBD). Project CBD is a great resource for all things CBD, and summarizes research on the links between CBD and various medical conditions.
You may also wish to consult your physician for advice on how/whether to use CBD.
Our pure CBD tinctures are made from CBD isolate. That means the only compound from the hemp plant that is incorporated into the tincture is CBD. There are no other cannabinoids. The pure CBD tinctures are completely THC-free.
Our full spectrum tinctures include not only CBD, but also trace amounts of other cannabinoids, such as CBD-V, CBG, CBC and THC. Consistent with federal law, the amount of THC does not exceed 0.3%, and there is no psychoactive effect.
We highly recommend taking CBD sublingually as opposed to ingesting it. The bio-availability of ingested CBD (gummies, candies, lollipops, capsules, edibles, etc) is very low as the CBD is filtered throughout your digestive system. The bio-availability is substantially higher (up to 7x) when you take CBD sublingually because the CBD is absorbed directly into your bloodstream under your tongue. For that reason, we do not sell CBD edibles.
We ship for free to all 50 states! We ship orders daily via USPS mail, and we provide tracking information via email at the time of shipment. Most orders ship within 24 hours; and all orders ship within 3 business days.
If there is a problem with your order, contact us immediately at email@example.com. If your items arrive damaged or defective, we are happy to refund or replace your items. Please notify us within five business days of receiving your items.
CBD is short for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in hemp plants. CBD has been studied for its potential to treat conditions ranging from inflammation and arthritis to PTSD and anxiety, just to name a few.
CBD is different from THC and does not make you feel "high". Because our CBD does not contain any THC (it is all tested by a third-party lab), it is safe for all kinds of people and pets.
The CBD used in our products is extracted from organically-grown Colorado hemp; is lab tested to be free of solvents and pesticides; and is always over 99% pure.
CBD is generally safe to use alongside other medications. However, certain medications may take longer to metabolize (i.e. stay in your body longer than intended) when taken alongside CBD. Please consult your doctor if you are unsure whether it is safe to take CBD with your current medications.
Our CBD tinctures come in glass bottles with child-proof dropper tops. To open your tincture, push down on the lid while turning. You will hear the tamper seal break. Keep pushing down the lid while turning and your tincture will open.
For best results, store your CBD products out of direct sunlight. Your CBD products do not need to be refrigerated. If you do refrigerate your tincture and find it begins to solidify/freeze, run the bottle under warm water until the liquid consistency returns.
