Frequently Asked Questions

CBD is a natural compound that makes around 40 percent of the hemp plant. It is non-intoxicating, unlike THC, meaning it will not get you high. It is considered the only most potent cannabinoid ever discovered. The list of uses continues to expand with on-going research

Due to their health benefits, ancient cultures have used numerous cannabis strains for centuries. However, cannabinoids have been generally unaccepted as an alternative application because of drastic changes in legislation and other factors, such as determining the different properties of CBD and THC.
However, as the science and health communities continue to understand and embrace various cannabinoids’ properties, CBD restrictions have been lifted and limited usage have become more popular for those searching for secure and efficient alternatives.

Through state-regulated agriculture and pilot projects, the 2014 federal Farm Bill gave state governments the legal right to cultivate and study industrial Hemp. It also classifies Hemp and hemp-derived products with less than 0.3 percent THC separate from marijuana cannabis. The cultivation and processing of Hemp have been legalized by the government after the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, permitting hemp-derived products to become more readily available, such as CBD oil.
Hemp and marijuana both come from the same Cannabis sativa plant; their tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) levels are the primary distinguishing characteristic. Hemp has a low THC (0.3%). In contrast, marijuana has higher concentrations of THC and is still illegal by the government.
In 2014, Congress’ legally approved industrial hemp cultivation by state-regulated hemp management and research agriculture departments; it is the most recent ruling in 2018 that eliminates Industrial Hemp as a Schedule I drug from the Government Controlled Substance List and allows for a hemp industry and sales by state borders.

The absorption of CBD in your body from the region of application into the bloodstream is known as its bioavailability. Maximum bioavailability means more CBD is accessible for use to the body. The bioavailability of CBD changes with different dosage forms, but selecting the right method of use for your needs will help ensure that you get the most from CBD.

The human body contains a specialized system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is involved in regulating a variety of functions including sleep, appetite, pain and immune system response. The body produces endocannabinoids, which are neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors in your nervous system.  CBD impacts endocannabinoid receptor activity, reduces inflammation and interacts with neurotransmitters.  CBD modifies the receptors’ ability to bind to cannabinoids.  Additionally, CBD plays a larger role in the endocannabinoid system: influencing other types of receptors, while also enhancing your natural levels of endocannabinoids by occupying certain enzymes.

Most drug tests are screening for the psychoactive component, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) not the presence of the cannabis plant derivatives.  By federal law all hemp derived products must contain less than .3% THC. While our CBD products are always under the legal limit of THC, we cannot guarantee they will not show up on a drug test.

Our products go through several rounds of testing by an independent 3rd-party laboratory which is ISO/IEC 17025certified to ensure clean, quality, safe and verified products. You can view and download a copy of the official Lab Results for each CBD product we sell.

Yes, cannabidiol is naturally produced by the cannabis / hemp plant. Also, cannabinoids are naturally produced within the human body in order to work with the endocannabinoid system.

No, CBD oil contains little to no THC, the active compound in Cannabis plant that has psychoactive properties which is what gives the “high” feeling. By law, CBD products must contain less than 0.3% THC and some products have no THC at all.  Furthermore, CBD is specifically sourced from hemp plants that have high concentrations of active cannabinoids, but low amounts of THC. Quality hemp extracts provide all the benefits of CBD, but without the “high” attributed to THC. 

There have been very few side effects reported from using CBD. An extensive 2011 study of safety and side effects of cannabidiol concluded that CBD is safe in a range of concentrations and has a better side effect profile when compared with other many prescription drugs. There have been some reports of CBD’s possible interactions with other medications, so we recommend discussing CBD with your health professional before adding CBD to your daily regimen.
