CBD oil contains several chemicals known as cannabinoids. Over 80 cannabinoids have been identified in the Cannabis family of plants. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most prevalent chemical in the Cannabis variety used to produce CBD oil. This variety of Cannabis is typically referred to as industrial hemp, although it should be noted that other varieties of industrial hemp contain lower levels of CBD and are produced for fiber. Some varieties of the Cannabis family of plants, commonly known as marijuana, contain high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in addition to CBD. THC is the psychoactive compound associated with “getting high.” Unlike THC, CBD will not make you high. Because of the high THC content, marijuana is and remains illegal at the federal level despite the fact that many states have decriminalized it. With the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, Congress federally legalized hemp. The hemp used to make CBD oil contains very low amounts of THC and these levels are strictly regulated by the federal and state governments. Hemp-derived CBD products are legal and available in all 50 states without a prescription or medical marijuana card.
Interest in CBD and how it affects humans sparked in 2013 when it was shown to have a significant impact on preventing and/or reducing the severity of epileptic seizures. Since then, there has been a significant amount of private and government sponsored research into CBD as treatment for conditions including anxiety, arthritis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. In fact, the U.S. government has patented several cannabinoids as “antioxidants and neuroprotectants.”

As a rule of thumb, start with a small baseline dosage between 2-5mg, two or three times daily (6-10mg total). Next, maintain your baseline dosage for 7 days and take note of how the CBD interacts with your body. If you are not receiving the benefits you were expecting after the initial 7 days of taking your baseline CBD dosage, then increase the daily dosage by 1-2 mg every 3 days until you find the dosage that is most suited to you. Once you have determined your minimum effective dose, you may wish to decrease your dosage by one step to see if you can maintain the benefits at a slightly lower dosage
Blue Goose CBD products are made with a full-spectrum hemp oil that contain dozens of cannabinoids patented by the US government as antioxidants and neuroprotectants, including cannabidiol (CBD). CBD isolates do not contain multiple cannabinoids and instead contain only the single CBD cannabinoid.
Some consumers believe full-spectrum oils perform better for health concerns due to the “entourage effect” of all cannabinoids, terpenes, and fatty acids working together synergistically. With a full-spectrum product, the desirable constituents of the whole plant work together as nature intended.
If you plan to take CBD products to treat a specific condition, start small and work your way up to a dose that works best for you. Be sure to purchase only CBD products you can trust! Many products on the market do not provide the advertised dose! Each product from Blue Goose is associated with a batch analysis that you can access to ensure that you’re getting what you pay for – a pure, clean product with the stated amount of CBD oil.
Our product starts with 100% USDA Certified Organic hemp, grown just down the road from where we process it into oil. Although we trust our supplier, the hemp is still tested prior to starting the extraction process to ensure there are not pesticides, heavy metals, and to ensure that the THC content is very low. We extract the oil in small batches using the CO2 (carbon dioxide) extraction method. Once we have the finished concentrate, the concentrate is tested to ensure proper dosing of individual bottles. The finished concentrate is then mixed with a carrier oil (coconut oil or hemp seed oil) to facilitate absorption into the body. Our carrier oils are also 100% USDA Certified Organic. Each batch of the final product undergoes extensive testing by an independent 3rd party laboratory and is certified pesticide free and safe from any and all potentially dangerous metal content.
On each bottle of Blue Goose CBD oil, there is lot code that can be used to obtain the batch analysis results for your bottle!
