New to CBD & FAQs

Whether you’re just starting your journey, or have been using CBD for a while, there’s always more to learn. Here’s a rundown on one of the most important compounds found in both cannabis and hemp plants

What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol, a cannabinoid found in both cannabis and hemp plants. Unlike it’s rowdier cousin, THC, CBD is psychotropic, which means there is no high rather a change in mental state. So why do people use it? Great question. While we make no claims as to CBD’s ability to treat, cure, or prevent any diseases or ailments, many people have claimed to have experienced relief from issues running from sleeplessness, to anxiety, to inflammation while using CBD. Research into the multiple medical benefits of this powerhouse compound is ongoing across the globe, and we encourage you to begin your own exploration and to work with your doctor to discover if CBD is right for you.

Will CBD get me high?
No. CBD does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC.

How Do Avitas Botanicals Vaporizers Work?
Avitas vaporizers put the convenience of our delicious botanical blends in the palm of your hand for ease of use at home or on the go. Avitas vaporizers are made from a unique blend of cannabidiol oil, terpenes, and herbal essential oils. When you puff on your vaporizer a ceramic coil consistently heats the botanical cbd oil in to a vapor that delivers the full benefits of our botanical blends. We recommend a 3-second draw on the vaporizer for each puff to keep the oil tasting good and fresh.

What is in the Avitas Botanicals Tincture?
Our delicious tinctures are coconut oil-based (which means they do not need to be taken under the tongue and can simply be swallowed). Each tincture incorporates organic essential oils that support relaxation, relief, revivification, or refreshment. Our CBD is derived from sun-grown organically cultivated hemp from the state of Oregon.

How Much CBD is in the Vaporizer and Tincture?
The tinctures contain 1000mg of cbd in each bottle. Vaporizers contain 300mg of cbd per vaporizer.

What CBD Dosage Do You Recommend?
CBD dosing is not a one size fits all endeavor. You’ll likely need to do some experimentation based on a few factors such as weight, body chemistry, and your desired effects. When trying to determine dosage, it’s always a good rule of thumb to start small and to work your way up slowly. Remember, when in doubt, talk to your doctor.

What is the Shelf Life of Avitas Botanicals?
Botanicals are best consumed within 6 months of purchase and expire after a year after purchase.

How Should I Store the Products?
