THE UPSTREAM ORGANICS GUIDE TO CBD
RELIEVE EVERYDAY STRESS, SUPPORT WELLNESS
Ingestible CBD Products (Sublingual Oils)
Each bottle is labeled with the Total CBD content (e.g. 1,000 mg or 500 mg), which is reported in “milligrams per bottle”. Our labels recommend “2 dropperfuls up to twice daily”, which is approximately equivalent to 4 mL (milliliters) per day. Each dropperful is about 1 mL.
The dosage of Total CBD per dropperful depends on the strength of sublingual oil you have. For example, a 1,000 mg bottle is about 33 mg per 1 mL while a 500 mg bottle is 17 mg per 1 mL. Many people who use CBD regularly find great results around 10- 20 mg per day.
IF YOU'RE NEW TO CBD PRODUCTS
Start with a small amount and gradually work up to an amount that works for you.
We suggest starting with 1 dropperful (or less) each day if you are new and after 3-4 weeks, increase to 1 dropperful twice daily and then to 2 dropperfuls etc. as you feel necessary; allow 3-4 weeks between each adjustment.
You can take a dropperful directly or add it to a beverage (our personal favorite is in our morning coffee!).
COMMON USES FOR CBD SUBLINGUAL OIL
Relief and more.
There are many factors that determine an individual's response to CBD. Factors include but are not limited to your build, underlying health conditions, medications, genetics, lifestyle, allergies, etc. Check with your doctor before starting any new supplement.
For best results, establish CBD regular use into your daily routine. One time use or “as needed” may benefit some individuals, however, consistency is key in achieving the biggest benefits with CBD supplements.
Topical CBD Products (Salves)
As with our sublingual oils, our salve products are also labeled with Total CBD content per bottle (ex. 500 mg [milligrams] per bottle). With our topical salve, apply the product directly on your skin where you need relief- do not ingest salves.
Common Uses for CBD topical salve products include: general wellness, relaxation, relief and more.
PET CBD SUBLINGUAL OIL, DOSAGE GUIDELINES
Pet CBD Dosage Guidelines
There is no standardized recommendation for CBD dosing in animals, therefore we recommend following your veterinarian’s suggestions for supplementing with CBD products. For first time users, start with a low dose, low frequency, and monitor your pet’s response to a trial dosage. Increase or decrease your dosage as you feel needed.
A basic guideline for determining where to start with dosage for your pet is 0.25 mg of Total CBD per 1 pound body weight. Each dropperful is approximately 1 mL
This works out to approximately:
Small dogs and cats (20 lbs or less) and cats, 150 mg / 30 mL Bottle- 1 dropperful per day
Medium dogs and cats (21 lbs - 65 lbs), 300 mg / 30 mL Bottle- 1 dropperful per day
Large dogs (65 lbs or more), 500 mg / 30 mL Bottle- 1 dropperful per day
For mobility support, increase dosage to 1 dropperful every 8 hours as needed.
For stress relief, administer dosage 30 minutes prior to stressful or triggering events.
