How CBD works
Bloem is a blend of CBD and MCT formulated to give you the all-natural relief you are looking for. Known in scientific terms as Cannabidiol, CBD is the most prevalent compound found in the Hemp plant. Unlike marijuana, hemp CBD is completely non-psychoactive. Bloem is formulated to be THC free.

Understanding CBD
Known in scientific terms as Cannabidiol, CBD is a compound which many use to treat moderate depression, reduce stress, and relieve physical pain. It has also been used to treat specific types of seizures, PTSD, and several neurological disorders. Though we do not yet know how CBD functions in the human body, virtually no negative side effects have been reported and most users do report experiencing many benefits from continued use.

CBD + MCT: A Synergistic Blend
Using coconut oil or other products that contain medium-chain triglycerides (MCT oils) triggers a relatively rapid release of cannabinoids when compared to other oils because MCT oils are directly metabolized into energy by the liver. This means that your body can burn those fats and put them - and the cannabinoids they hold - to use right away.

How Can I Take the Tincture?

The tincture can be taken through a dropper directly into the mouth or mixed into food or drink. In addition to your favorite food, CBD drops can be used in any condiment, drink or candy you can dream up. Mix with your salad dressing for extra zest, dissolve a dash in your morning Cup of Jo to start off with an extra pep in your step, or drizzle a few drops on ice cream for even the pickiest of kids. Our tincture has Zero Flavor so the possibilities are practically endless! Use it orally or topically - the choice is yours!
Dosage
CBD is unlike other health and wellness aids in that the dosage is very individual.

Our recommended dosage is merely a reference, not a specific guideline.

The interesting thing about CBD is that many of our clients who deal with chronic pain and anxiety use CBD and increase their CBD intake during a “flare-up” of pain or anxiety. Clients report benefits from increasing the dosage during a flare-up and then returning to their usual daily dosage when the flare-up subsides.

Some of our clients prefer to increase the strength of their tincture to increase the beneficial effects.

There are no scientific or medical guidelines for CBD dosage at this time but we recommend keeping a record of your dosage so you will know how much CBD you will need to experience benefits.

Bloem offers both full spectrum and isolate CBD tinctures.

We advise our clients to utilize isolate CBD tincture if they are required to take drug tests for professional reasons. Our full spectrum tincture contains less than .03% full spectrum cannabis whereas the isolate is just that, purified and isolated cannabidiol. For additional information on CBD and other cannabis products, we recommend you visit Project CBD, a non-profit educational news service that does not sell or distribute any CBD/cannabis products.

On June 25, 2018, the FDA approved the purified form of cannabis, (aka CBD), specifically to treat seizures. “This product approval demonstrates that advancing sound scientific research to investigate ingredients derived from marijuana can lead to important therapies. This new treatment provides new options for patients.”

It is important to note that the FDA does not currently provide guidelines for dosage of CBD.

Again, we recommend that you start with the recommended dosage outlined in the chart below and increase the dosage (and/or strength of tincture) over time.
Chronic Pain

2.5-20mg by mouth for ~25 days

As with any supplement or health aid, be sure to talk to your doctor about possible drug interactions and keep a record of your dosage so you know how much (and at what strength) provides optimum benefits for you.
