What is the difference between the CBD-infused oil (drops) and the CBD tincture?

Both products are infused with CBD, the tincture is an alcohol base and the oil is a liquid coconut oil base. The taste of the tincture is kind of harsh, since it is made with 150 proof grain alcohol, while the taste of the liquid coconut oil is very mild. The alcohol tincture is reported to be faster acting than the oil. Both product work to carry CBD into the system, orally.

Do you have any products for skin conditions? Psoriasis, eczema, alopecia?

Although our topical salve has been reported to heal many skin conditions, we are very reluctant to recommend a topical, because we know that the skin must have air to breath and heal, and the oils block the pores. Having said that, however, if it is applied sparingly, and withdrawn immediately if it irritates, some people have had success with it. We cannot give medical advice, but here at the Beguinage, we take CBD drops (ingested) for skin conditions, because we believe that most skin conditions originate from stomach lining issues.

What does the salve do?

Our multi-purpose topical CBD salve was developed to alleviate muscle and joint pain, but we have testimonials from people who use it to ward off migraines, who have used it for toothaches, earaches, diaper rash. It is very experimental. All our ingredients are food grade. Be experimental. Listen to your body.

Can you send me some information on the benefits of your products?

Do you have anything that is known to help cancer patients? My dad has colon and liver cancer.

We are not doctors and are not allowed to give medical advice. As students of CBD, we know that the people who have successfully used CBD to reverse cancer, take it in many forms or very high dosages. We have specifically stocked our pure plant oil for people with serious illnesses, such as cancer, at the request of our buying public and following. We hear that doctors and herbalist will recommend anywhere from 50 mg a day of CBD to as much as 2 full grams. There is much, yet, to be studied, and much yet, to be revealed. Everyone is guessing, at this point. It is highly experimental. For colon cancer, if someone here were suffering from that, we would put them on CBD in suppository form.

What is the best product for arthritis and fibromyalgia?

Both the topical salve and the ingested oil (drops) have been reported to help arthritis and fibromyalgia. All people are different, however, and all conditions are different, and CBD is highly experimental at this time in history. If one decides to try CBD topicals, we recommend applying the salve three times a day for three days, and then adjusting dosage, usually, downward. At the beginning, you want to blast the system a little with the CBD to make up for the deficiency of this compound in the body. If there is severe and chronic pain, we advise people to also ingest the drops three times a day for the first three days, and then adjust according to the results seen. One must listen to their body. Pay attention to the clues. The body will say if it is helping or not. If there is no results, please write us at and we will either refund or replace the product with something else.

We are Beguine revivalists, and prefer the title ‘Sisters’ or ‘Sisterhood’. However, by dictionary definition, we are, in fact nuns. We live together, work together, pray together, and take life-time vows. For more about our beliefs, see the article “Being Beguines” by Sister Kate.

Are you Christian?

We are a newly formed, spiritual and intentional community. When we looked for land to settle upon, we looked for land that had never had blood spilled there. When we looked for our Spiritual beliefs, we looked back to our pre-Christian, ancient Beguine mothers. We respect Christianity, as we respect all Spiritual beliefs of others, but it is not central to our beliefs or practices.
