Frequently Asked Questions
1) What exactly is CBD?
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a Cannabis compound that can either be derived from Marijuana or Hemp. All of our products are derived from Hemp, so users do not get a "high" feeling from using our CBD and THC levels will always be below 0.3%. Marijuana on the other hand, has THC levels between 5-30%.
CBD was first discovered in the 1940s but did not start gaining popularity until recently. It has been known to help with pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, OCD, seizures and more.
2) What are the benefits of CBD?
We touched upon this above but a more thorough list includes those with pain, inflammation, insomia/sleep disorders, anxiety, stress, depression, OCD, mood disorders, seizures, cancer recovery, Alzheimer's, Glaucoma, Parkinson, neurological degeneration, acne, and other skin problems.
3) How should I use CBD?
This mostly comes down to personal preference and is why we offer products with multiple different methods of administration.
Tincture/Oil: The classic use is in tincture form, or droppers. Taken sublingually(under the tongue) this allows you to have the maximum control over your dose and allows the cannabinoids to bypass the digestive system and liver for faster absorption into the bloodstream.
Topicals: When CBD is applied to the skin directly, it does not enter the bloodstream. What this means is that you get targeted relief to a specific area. If you have back pain, knee pain, joint issues, etc, this will likely be the best option for you.
Capsules/Pills: This method prioritizes ease of use and convenience. If you are looking for a precise dose and want to know exactly how much you are using, taking capsules is our best recommendation.
Edibles: Edibles usually taste the best as compared to other methods of ingesting. Common edibles include CBD infused gummies, chocolate and honey. The main downside of edibles is that they take the longest time to absorb and take effect. They are the least bioavailable method and for some the taste isn't worth the latter downside.
4) What is the best dosage for CBD?
Good question. The short answer is that it varies although 25mg has become the most accepted among users and researchers alike as the standard dosage. The most common dosages range from 10mg to 40mg. Everyone is different and the factors that go into this include age, weight, metabolism, genetics and others. We recommend starting smaller and working your way up in the amount you take, but do not start too small or you may not feel any effect. With that said, here are some recommendations as per the Mayo Clinic by use:
- Loss of Appetite in Cancer Patients: 2.5mg of THC (orally), with or without 1mg of CBD for six weeks.
- Chronic Pain: 2.5-20mg of CBD [with or without THC] (orally).
- Epilepsy: 200-300mg of CBD (orally) daily.
- Movement Problems Due to Huntington’s Disease: 10mg of CBD per kg of body weight daily for six weeks (orally).
- Sleep Disorders: 40mg-160mg of CBD (orally).
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS) symptoms: Cannabis plant extracts containing 2.5-120 milligrams of a THC/CBD combination daily for 2-15 weeks. Patients typically use eight sprays within any three hours, with a maximum of 48 sprays in any 24-hour period.
- Schizophrenia: 40-1,280mg oral CBD daily.
- Glaucoma: A single sublingual CBD dosage of 20-40mg (>40 mg may increase eye pressure).
5) Should I take CBD on an empty stomach?
CBD is best taken with food or after a light meal, and especially medium chain triglycerides.
6) Is CBD legal?
All CBD derived from hemp is 100% federally legal. All of our products are completely legal as they are from hemp. Anyone who lives in a state or country where CBD is legal can purchase CBD. CBD can be purchased over the counter and does not require any specific medical cards.
7) Is CBD addictive?
In theory, anything can become addictive however CBD is not known to be an addictive substance. In fact, CBD has been known to help many people break addictions from varying drugs such as pain killers and other narcotics.
8) What is the endocannabinoid system?
The endocannabinoid system is a combination of enzymes, receptors and endocannabinoids in the human body that is involved in the production and biological synthesis of endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are lipid-based(fat based) neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are existent throughout the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system. In layman's terms, the system helps maintain homeostasis and supports balance in the body.
9) Can CBD cause me to fail a drug test?
All of our products are THC free so you will not fail a drug test screening for THC.
