FAQ's About CBD Oil & CBD Products
Most common questions we get regarding CBD oil and CBD products.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the compounds, known as cannabinoids, found in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids act on cannabinoid receptors that are part of the endocannabinoid system found throughout the body. CBD is the second most abundant compound in cannabis but has none of the psychoactive properties of marijuana.
Are Hemp and Marijuana the same?
Hemp and marijuana are both types of cannabis but are genetically distinct and differ in several ways. The cultivation, chemical properties and use is how they differ. Hemp is grown and cultivated for fiber and seed to produce a variety of products including foods, oils, rope, and fabrics with less than .3% THC and is non-psychoactive. Marijuana is cultivated to yield high levels of the psychoactive ingredient THC, concentrated heavily in the flowers and buds with THC levels exceeding 20%.
How is CBD made?
Hemp oil is extracted from the stalks and stems of cannabis using solvents or with a non-toxic and non-flammable CO2 extraction method. Prevalent in the food industry, CO2 extraction eliminates the risk of solvent residues in the final product and is “generally regarded as safe” by the FDA.
Is CBD legal?
CBD companies cannot give legal advice on the legality of CBD. Consumers are encouraged to do their research on the legality of CBD. It is legal in 44 states. In 28 states where medical marijuana is legal, CBD products are covered by those same medical marijuana legal protections. In recent years, 16 states have passed CBD-only laws legalizing the possession and use of CBD products for specific conditions, but not cannabis products containing higher levels of THC. In those states with CBD legal protections, the substance is considered federally illegal by the DEA. Only six states (Idaho, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Indiana, and West Virginia) still consider every part of the cannabis plant to be illegal. The Controlled Substance Act does not contain the terms “Cannabidiol,” “Cannabinoids” or “Hemp”. In order for these terms to be included in the CSA and officially become law, it would take an act of Congress, passed by the House and Senate, and signed by the President.
Will CBD get me High?
CBD does not have any of the psychoactive properties associated with marijuana and will not get the user “high.” Industrial hemp with less than 0.3% THC content can yield high-quality CBD that is 99% pure.
Will I fail a drug test?
Many CBD products have no THC in them at all, and all CBD products derived from industrial hemp have less than 0.3% THC. There are many factors that can determine whether a person can pass a drug test making them unpredictable, but the trace amounts of THC found in CBD products is very small.
How is CBD Taken?
CBD can be taken orally by placing oil drops under the tongue allowing it to absorb quickly, or ingested in capsules and edibles. CBD can also be added to ointments and lotions for topical use or inhaled using a vaporizer. How a person ingests CBD plays a significant role in how quickly CBD will enter the system. Using a vaporizer is the quickest and most efficient way.
What is the difference between Isolate and Full Spectrum?
Full Spectrum products contain CBD as well as other cannabinoids and terpenes. CBD Isolate is 99% pure isolated CBD. Cannabinoids will have a different effect on every individual.
Are there side effects to CBD use?
Hemp and CBD are both considered safe and should not produce any adverse side effects in most people. That being said, everyone processes CBD and other dietary supplements differently, and it is always recommended to consult with a physician before adding any supplement to your diet.
Is CBD Oil Legal in all 50 States?
