It is also difficult to say about talking with other things, as it all depends on what the client is taking, as with normal oils, somethings like grapefruit will not mix with an oil, some contraceptive implants react bad to grapefruit, etc. Reply Rory, MSc Personalised Nutrition on January 8, 2020 at 1:33 am Hi Sarah. Thanks for your question. The questions with square boxes indicate there is more than one correct answer. The round check boxes indicate questions with one correct answer. Regarding not taking CBD, its generally when a client has an open wound. With regards to using it with other oils and products, CBD is not known to react with any medications topically, but it is when ingested. If a client already uses other oils on their body, it should be fine to also use CBD. Reply Kateryn on January 7, 2020 at 5:53 pm Hi there. Thanks for the information about CBD and the test. All very useful. I did the test and got 54/71. I counted and there were 41 questions. How is the result then 54/71? And how many correct answers do I need to get to pass? Also when I got the results of the test there were some questions that didn’t had an answer although I did choose one. Is it because they were not correct? I appreciate your help on this. Best regards. Reply Rory, MSc Personalised Nutrition on January 8, 2020 at 1:09 am Hi Kateryn. Thanks for your question Some of the questions are weighted with more points, because they are more important to know. For example it is important to know the difference between CBD taken orally and topically. The pass mark is 60%, so you were well above that. As per the missing questions, if you selected them then they should appear. I know there have been issues ith the correct answers displaying, so I will look into the quiz plugin and ask them about errors. Hope that helps Reply Sabrina Andrew on January 14, 2020 at 11:48 pm Hi I just finished the test where do I get the results and how do I know if I passed thank you. Reply Rory, MSc Personalised Nutrition on January 15, 2020 at 8:19 pm Hi Sabrina, they should be emailed to you once you complete the test. The pass mark is 60% (42/71). Reply Naomi O'Hene on January 17, 2020 at 6:15 pm Hi, I have completed the test and submitted today. Can you please let me know when I’ll get the results? Reply Rory, MSc Personalised Nutrition on January 20, 2020 at 7:45 pm Hi Naomi, thanks for taking the test. The results should come through to your email. You passed FYI. Pass mark is 60% (42/71). Reply Tasha on January 26, 2020 at 9:15 pm Could not for the life of me, find the ingredients list for the muscle balm anywhere. I’ve guessed now so too late but I’d like to know for future reference. Reply Rory, MSc Personalised Nutrition on January 27, 2020 at 5:22 pm Hi Tasha, you can find them on the training resources page (Gurunivesity) under Muscle Balm: https://gaiaguru.co.uk/guruniversity/ Reply Graham Hyman on January 27, 2020 at 7:43 pm Hi how long does it take for the email detailing if we have passed, to arrive? Many thanks Reply Rory, MSc Personalised Nutrition on January 28, 2020 at 6:39 pm Hi Graham, the results should be in your inbox straight after you take the test. Check your spam or junk folder just in case it doesn’t come into your inbox. Pass mark is 47/78 (60%) Reply SHEILA BOYCE on January 31, 2020 at 2:38 pm Hi Ive just completed the test. A bit confused as some of my answers are not showing. Also im confused about one of the questions and answers, where is asks what type of CBD they use, well it says Full spectrum, however the answer has come up as Isolate, please explain? Thanks Reply Rory, MSc Personalised Nutrition on January 31, 2020 at 3:07 pm Hi Sheila, thanks for your comment. I am not sure why some of your answers aren’t showing, but I will look into it. We do indeed use Full spectrum, I checked the quiz and the correct answer was applied incorrectly. I have changed it now. Best, Rory Reply Kamil on February 28, 2020 at 7:58 pm Hi I passed the test couple of days ago but I still didn’t receive certificate. I’ve checked spam etc nothing’s there. Js there any chance to resend it? Thanks Reply Rory MSc Personalised Nutrition on March 5, 2020 at 8:17 pm Hi Kamil. I had a technical issue with my laptop so was unable to issue certificates – my apologies. Back online now, and you should have received your cert from Urban. Reply Lorrena Elliott on February 8, 2020 at 1:40 am there is definitely something up with this test….. I have Aspergers’…. Attention to detail is second to none and I completed this twice on my Ipad then on my Windows Surface Pro and I know all 78 answers inside out…. but it didn’t’ record some of my multiple choice selections 🙁 Reply Rory, MSc Personalised Nutrition on February 9, 2020 at 2:05 pm Hi Lorrena. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I’ve looked into it and the test has started to not recognise a select few answers. It used to work fine, but the site has been updated recently so perhaps there is a bug in the plugin. I’ll sort it. Reply Rory, MSc Personalised Nutrition on February 9, 2020 at 2:29 pm All sorted now, was a bug in the test plugin update Reply Lorrena Elliott on February 8, 2020 at 1:43 am But on a lighter note, I have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the product and the company and am astonished at just how much time and effort was put into Gaia Guru. I have the products already, just waiting for my certificate …. l look forward to sharing your proverbial blood sweat and tears with my clients 😀 Reply Rory, MSc Personalised Nutrition on February 9, 2020 at 2:06 pm Glad you found the training useful! Thanks for your support, and hope you get on well with the products. Feedback always welcome. Your certificate should be with you in a couple of days. Rory Reply Liz Moses on February 25, 2020 at 4:58 pm Taken the quiz twice now. And when I send I keep just getting the buffering thingy going round. Driving me bonkers Reply Rory MSc Personalised Nutrition on February 28, 2020 at 3:18 pm Thanks for bringing this to my attention Liz. I am sorry that this was not an easy experience for you. I’ll take a look into it. Reply Simeon on May 22, 2020 at 2:41 pm Phew, that was a stressful test very pleased I studied the Guruniversity pages. The Urban video/work sheet I don’t think are enough to pass this test as there is a lot of information that isn’t included on those. But feel like a have a good understanding to proceed with massage now. On the video there are numbers next to the case studies/references, is there somewhere I can get a bibliography for further reading? Reply Rory MSc Personalised Nutrition on May 24, 2020 at 10:36 am Hi Simeon, thanks for the feedback. I am glad that you feel well equipped to massage with CBD now. Yes the details are mostly in the Guruniversity page, whereas the training is more like a 30,000 ft view of the topic. I apologise if that wasn’t made clear, and will make sure that the instructions are to study both of them in future. I’ve emailed you the presentation with hyperlinks to the studies referenced. Reply Jane Widdison on June 3, 2020 at 8:13 pm Many Thanks. I really enjoyed learning something new about Cannabis sativa L , a truly incredible plant in its own right, dioicous plant of the Cannabaceae family which is widely distributed all over the world . Looking forward to using the CBD medium, I expect its amazing ! Reply Rory MSc Personalised Nutrition on June 4, 2020 at 8:49 am Glad you enjoyed it Jane. It really is! There will be plenty more learning resources on the website soon. In the meantime, check out the ‘Learn’ page on the site menu for more!
