CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid. There are 113 different phytocannabinoid compounds found in hemp plants that have been found to have numerous benefits for health and wellness.
CBD works directly with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body that are associated with pain sensation, inflammation, appetite, immune function, mood and nervous system regulation.*
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) was only recently discovered by scientists in 1992. It's a huge network of cannabinoid receptors spread throughout the body with a complex cell-signaling system that is essential to help regulate all the other systems of the body to maintain homeostasis and balance.
ECS receptors respond to endocannabinoids that are produced by your own body as well as to phytocannabinoids that come from plants. Together they help regulate the immune response, digestion, sleep, memory, the nervous system and so much more. The Endocannabinoid System is why CBD can be so beneficial for such a wide variety of symptoms.*
A Certificate of Analysis, or COA’s, are tests provided by a third-party laboratory with no affiliation to give an accurate analysis of products. These testing companies are there to keep you safe and informed of the quality of the products. They help ensure that products are made to specification, and indicates the quantity of hemp extract found in each product. These certificates should also show details on the levels of terpenes, heavy metals, pesticides, and THC found in products. What this tells you is the quality and purity of the product and that quantity you purchase is in fact what you get.
Since everyone's response is different, we encourage people to start with the lowest potency and amounts and increase dosages and frequency as needed to determine what your response is. Remember, with Blue Buddha products you get the desired effect with very few drops.
If you find that you are consistently using more than one or two drops on an area to get the desired effect, consider going up to a higher potency. Everyone’s body is different. It is also more economical to use the potency that best works for you.
And with Transdermal SynergyTM, these products need very few drops to have the same effect that you may have needed much more of a different type of product with CBD.
A dose can be as little as 1 drop. Because of Transdermal Synergy, you are able to microdose, which means using very little to signal the body and your system to get the desired effect. You only need a small amount each application. And because it is topical and not ingested, you know very quickly if you have the desired benefits or need a little more. The only time you would use more than a few drops on an area would be if you are targeting the benefits of the herbs, such as with injuries and muscle or joint discomfort.
We have included a more advanced Application Guide on each product page which gives detailed instructions on how to get the best results with practitioner level knowledge from each formula.

Look for our Advanced Applications for more specific instructions and tips on Gordon Merkle, L.Ac.’s blog, click here.
There are approximately 600 drops in a 1oz/30ml bottle. A dose can be as little as 1 drop.
If you use our Application Guide, you may be using 4-6 drops per use to get maximum benefits. So depending on how many drops you’re using with your application, you can easily get between 100-150 uses per bottle.
The amount of time the benefits last will vary greatly with each unique individual. Many factors go into your responses. The amount of dosing, frequency, cellular receptivity to CBD, vitality, diet and physical activity are all factors in how you respond. What we can tell you from patient feedback is that the benefits can last from hours to days depending on what it is being used for.
It’s an advanced rapid delivery system with a unique formulation of rare herbs, CBD, and vibrational tinctures that ensure that you’ll get fast, immediate results. The magic of Transdermal SynergyTM is when you experience the fusion of three separate products into one. The combined benefits form a synergistic effect that is exponentially more powerful than each product on its own, providing fast results and increased healing benefits. To learn more please visit.
The topical tinctures are best used within 18 months of purchase. The herbal tinctures alone can have a shelf life of 10 or more years or more. Like a fine scotch, they actually improve with aging. So far we have not experienced any breakdown or degradation of the formulas as we continue to monitor the shelf life.
From clinical experience, we have seen very few complaints of side effects. A couple of people have reported developing a local rash from applying it to their skin. It was determined to be a reaction to the herbs and upon switching to a different Blue Buddha formula they did not get a rash.
Some people have found that applying the drops can make them too sleepy. While this can be seen as a side effect, others see it as a benefit. This could be a result from using too high of a potency or too many drops.
Yes. CBD and the herbs in Blue Buddha formulas are known to be safe for pets. If your pet is a mammal it has an Endocannabinoid System that will respond to CBD just like it will in humans to help regulate homeostasis and balance. While many of our customers have used it successfully on their dogs, cats and horses, we do recommend that you consult with your veterinarian who is familiar with your pet and knowledgeable in the use of CBD and herbs for pet health.
