Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
CBD is one of dozens of compounds found in the cannabis plant that belongs to a class of ingredients called cannabinoids. Until recently, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) was getting most of the attention because it’s the ingredient in cannabis that produces mind-altering effects in users. However, CBD is also present in high concentrations — and the medical world is realizing that its list of medical benefits continues to grow.
Non-toxic and non-euphoric, CBD triggers receptors in the brain and body providing effective relief. Clinical and scientific studies have proven CBD is safe and therapeutic for treating a multitude of health conditions. CBD is anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, neuroprotective, and antidepressant. It has shown to treat chronic pain, cancer, anxiety, diabetes, high blood pressure, PTSD and arthritis, just to name a few.
Unlike THC, the psychoactive compound in certain strains of cannabis, CBD will not get you “high.” It is an appealing option for those seeking the health benefits of cannabis without unwanted side effects.
What’s the Endocannabinoid System?
Humans are pre-wired with an Endocannabinoid System in our body, which is essentially another physiological system like the body’s immune system. Cannabinoid receptors are found most abundantly in our brains and immune systems. This system is also involved in maintaining health. Our bodies are specifically wired with receptors for cannabinoids like CBD, which bind to this system’s receptors to establish homeostasis and balance in the body.
CBD triggers these receptors to have strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasm, anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral and neuroprotective properties. Unlike THC, the ingredient in cannabis that produces mind-altering effects, CBD is recognized by doctors and scientist worldwide as a major breakthrough for patients. CBD is the predominant cannabinoid in hemp grown for fiber, and is a non-toxic, non-euphoric substance that doesn’t make people feel “stoned.” Rather, scientific and clinical studies show CBD is beneficial for many conditions.
Is CBD legal?
Why, yes! While both marijuana and hemp are considered the cannabis plant, hemp has no psychoactive properties, or THC, the stuff that gets you "high." What it does have, however, are CBDs, the good, healing stuff that your Endocannabinoid System needs. Rest assured possessing and using CBD oil is 100% legal.
Will I fail my drug test?
Drug tests are looking for THC, which is again the stuff in marijuana that gets you "stoned." Drug tests do NOT look for CBD. HOWEVER, all of our products are full-spectrum, meaning they contain trace amounts of THC, but well under the legal limit of .3%. You can find third-party lab analyses here. There is a possibility THC may show up in a drug screening, so please use at your own caution.
How do I take CBD oil?
The best way to take CBD oil is sublingually- that's a fancy way of saying under the tongue. You can take as much as you want, but we recommend starting out at 10 drops under the tongue and holding for about 30 seconds for best absorption. You can do this once a day or multiple times a day as needed. We believe in the holistic treatment of the body and that you are your own greatest healer- so listen to your body! If you need more, take more, if you need less, take less. You know what works for you better than anyone else.
Do you really offer a money back guarantee?
Absolutely! We are committed to our product and have the utmost faith it will work for whatever you're trying to treat. Not satisfied? That's okay! Send us back your unused portion within 45 days of receipt and we'll issue a refund. Our motto: "Do right by people and they'll do right by you."
