WHAT IS CBD
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, one of over 100 identified cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. People use CBD in many different ways, and for many different reasons. We recommend that our customers do their own research using trusted, 3rd-party sources to learn more about CBD and what people use it for.
WILL I GET HIGH
All of our products are derived from industrial hemp, and contain <0.3% THC per legal requirements. THC levels in our products are not nearly large enough to make the user feel “high”.
ARE CBD PRODUCTS LEGAL
Hemp oil is legal in over 40 different countries and the number of hemp oil consumers worldwide is constantly on the rise with more and more studies showing the benefits of hemp oil. In the United States all cannabinoids are illegal on the federal level and this includes CBD. However, the FDA has made no determination or assertion that CBD products are illegal or in any way run afoul of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). As was established by the Ninth Circuit in 2004, the sale, production and distribution of CBD oils/products derived from imported raw material industrial hemp, such as those produced and sold are not in violation of the CSA.
WHAT DOES FULL SPECTRUM MEAN
Full spectrum means that an oil or product contains all of the cannabinoids that are found in the cannabis plant in nature, rather than just CBD. Full spectrum products are associated with the “entourage effect” – this refers to the increased effectiveness of these products due to the different cannabinoids working synergistically.
WHAT IS CBD ISOLATE
Isolate CBD is only isolated Cannabidiol. Quality Isolate is usually 99+% pure, verified via third party certificates of analyses. These products should not contain any other cannabinoid, but can still have terpenes added.
WHAT ARE STANDARD BUSINESS PRACTICES CONSUMERS SHOULD BE AWARE OF
WILL I FAIL A DRUG TEST
Everyone is different so there is no straight answer. We cannot guarantee that it’s not a possibility. We can neither confirm nor deny the possibility of failing a drug test and cannot be held responsible if test comes back with positive or false positive results.
IS CBD SAFE
In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential. To date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD. CBD has been demonstrated as an effective treatment of epilepsy in several clinical trials. There is also preliminary evidence that CBD may be a useful treatment for a number of other medical conditions. CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile. Reported adverse effects may be as a result of drug-drug interactions between CBD and patients’ existing medications. - World Health Organization
CANNABIS, MARIJUANA AND HEMP- WHATS THE DIFFERENCE
Hemp and Marijuana are not the same, however, they both do come from the Cannabis Plant family. Hemp is very different than Marijuana from how it is cultivated to the applications in which it can be applied. Hemp is used in a plethora of ways including supplements, clothing, construction materials, skincare products, paper and plastic alternatives, and a sustainable food and fuel source. There are over 25,000 known applications for hemp.
WHAT DOES BROAD SPECTRUM MEAN
Broad spectrum CBD is a bit of a mix between Full Spectrum CBD and CBD Isolate. Like Full Spectrum CBD, the other compounds found within the plant are preserved in the extract; however, like CBD Isolate, THC is completely removed. Because Broad Spectrum CBD contains multiple cannabinoids, it can deliver the enhanced benefits of the “entourage effect,” without the risk of psychoactive effects of THC.
WHAT ARE POTENTIAL DRUG INTERACTIONS
CBD may also interact with the endocannabinoid system through indirect mechanisms such as enhanced action of the endogenous cannabinoid ligand anandamide. This results from blockade of anandamide reuptake and the inhibition of its enzymatic degradation. CBD has been shown to modulate several non-endocannabinoid signaling systems. It is not clear which, if any, of these mechanisms are responsible for any of CBD’s potential clinical or other effects. Some of these mechanisms include: Inhibition of adenosine uptake, possibly resulting in indirect agonist activity at adenosine receptors. Enhanced activity at the 5-HT1a receptor. Enhanced activity at glycine receptor subtypes Blockade of the orphan G-protein-coupled receptor GPR55. There is potential for CBD to be associated with drug interactions through inhibition of some cytochrome P450 enzymes, but it is not yet clear whether these effects occur at physiological concentrations. In other words, if you are going to take CBD and are on other medications, it is in your best interest to consult an experienced Cannabis Physician to get YOUR SPECIFIC risks associated with drug interaction. CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile. Reported adverse effects may be as a result of drug-drug interactions between CBD and patients’ existing medications.
