Frequently Asked Questions

So what is CBD?

CBD, also known scientifically as Cannabidiol, is a non-intoxicating element of the hemp plant. It is one of the five most common cannabinoids in the hemp plant.

Is Cannabidiol (CBD) safe?

CBD shows evidence of being addictive, and humans do not show any proof of dependence on it. To this day, no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health-related issues has ever been associated with CBD usage. Consistent usage, plus very high doses (e.g. 1,500 mg/day) of CBD are reported to be well tolerated in humans and animals.

How much CBD should I take?

Effective dosages range from as minimal as 5mg of CBD daily, up to 150mg per day. Be sure to take it “low and slow” in the beginning. A few small doses over the days’ time are recommended to start, rather than one larger dose.  Keep at the same pace of dosage for several days. Analyze its effects and adjust your dosage from there without overdoing it.

Does CBD make a person feel “high”?

CBD (cannabidiol) has many benefits to human health, without the psychoactive effects that can be found in THC. “Relaxing but not intoxicating” is how many describe CBD’s effects. Nonetheless, it’s recommended to those who want the benefits of Hemp without the intoxicating effects.

What are the side effects of taking CBD, if any?

CBD is not associated with side effects although these have been reported – Drowsiness – Dryness of mouth – Becoming lightheaded – In rare cases, a feeling of mild intoxication.

Just what are cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds secreted by hemp plants that affect the bodies of humans and animals. Our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids which affect the brain, nerve, and immune cells. Hemp cannabinoids are also known as Phytocannabinoids.

Is hemp the same as cannabis?

The only difference between cannabis and hemp is the amount of Delta 9 THC concentration. As defined by the Farm Bill of 2018; Hemp must be grown while maintaining less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC on a dry weight basis. From seed to shelf. Cannabis does not have any THC restrictions.

Are CBD products legal in every US state?

As long as these products are derived from hemp, not cannabis. Also, all CBD Products must have no more than 0.3% Delta 9 THC on a dry weight basis. Medical cannabis cards are not required to purchase or use hemp-derived CBD products. It is federally legal in all 50 states.

Will CBD extracts show up in drug tests?

There are many factors that could create mixed results when drug testing while taking CBD extracts. Typically, most drug tests do not test for general cannabinoids like CBD, CBN, CBG, CBC, only THC. Because THC is still a federal scheduled-1 drug. Taking a full-spectrum hemp extract product could increase your chances of failing a drug test. Because it will contain less than 0.3% THC. Taking a broad-spectrum hemp extract product could dramatically decrease your chances of failing a drug test. Because the THC is distilled out, leaving general cannabinoids behind. We recommend simply taking a cautious approach to hemp extracts if drug tests are of concern.
