General CBD FAQs
What is CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of the 100+ compounds found in hemp plants. It’s a non-intoxicating compound that interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system.
Does CBD cause side effects?
Hemp is considered safe in general. According to many consumers, CBD has no significant side effects although it depends on how your body adapts to this compound. We recommend consulting your physician before using any CBD product.
Is CBD oil legal?
CBD from hemp is widely available across the USA. In 2018, updates to the U.S. Farm Bill legalized the commercial cultivation of hemp under certain regulations. Your state may impose restrictions not enforced by Federal law.
Will CBD get me high?
None of our products can legally contain more than 0.3% THC (an amount too low to cause intoxication in most), and many products are completely THC-free. If you want products with THC-free, look for items that specifically say they contain CBD Isolate and a broad spectrum. We are unable to guarantee drug test outcomes.
CBD Product FAQs
What is the best method for CBD use?
CBD products are available in a wide variety of forms similar to other supplements and wellness products.
CBD oils (or tincture) are best absorbed directly into the bloodstream with the easiest method being oil drops underneath your tongue. Just 30 seconds and a dropper of oil can be absorbed quickly for faster effect.
CBD can be consumed via gummies, capsules, gels, pills, drinks or food but most is broken down in the liver and thus lower impact.
CBD can also be absorbed into the skin through lotions, creams, ointments, massage oil, balms, salves and more.
Can pets use THC?
Yes dogs, cats, and even horses, can use CBD like humans do. CBD can be given as a tasty treat, an easy-to-use tincture, or as a chewable. CBD is mixed with the flavors that your dog, cat and even horse will love. The amount of CBD used can vary between animals. It is advisable to start with a low dose and monitor your pet’s reaction. Generally, a daily routine takes at least 2-3 weeks to achieve optimal wellness. Ask your veterinarian on recommendations before CBD use.
What is the difference between isolate, broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD?
Full Spectrum - This oil is derived from hemp full plant extraction including all cannabinoids. It contains less than 0.3% THC but is technically not “THC-free”. The extraction includes essential oils (aka terpenes), minerals and vitamins from hemp. These compounds combine to create the “entourage effect” where the elements amplify the wellness effects. Full Spectrum is also known as raw, unrefined, virgin, genuine, sparkling, heavy sweet crude oil.
Broad Spectrum - This oil takes the “Full Spectrum” extract but refines it to remove remaining trace amounts of THC. The refined oil still includes most active hemp-derived cannabinoids. This provides CBD oil that is 100% THC free although with slight reduction to the entourage effect.
Isolate - This CBD is further refined to remove everything except CBD and that remains is a white powder that is at least 99% pure CBD with 0.0% THC. This can be mixed into other products with new technology continually being developed to increase the bioavailability of the CBD.
What is the difference between cannabis, hemp, and marijuana?
Cannabis is the plant species which is then legally recognized as two different plants, hemp and marijuana with separate genetic profiles. Marijuana plants typically are smaller with flowering buds, a larger amount of THC and little CBD. Industrial hemp is generally fibrous with few flowering buds, higher amounts of CBD and trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%). Hemp has been produced to use as fiber, paper, rope, food additives, oils and more. “Hemp oil” may be derived from the hemp plant’s stalks and leaves and contains very little CBD.
What is THC?
THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the specific chemical compound in cannabis responsible for a euphoric high. In 1964, Israeli chemist Raphael Mechoulam who first isolated then synthesized THC from hashish. This cannabis research would lead to the discovery of many other cannabinoids and receptors throughout the body. Endocannabinoids are compounds naturally produced in our body.
