Down Arrow Icon Minus Icon

CBD (cannabidiol) is the most abundant of over 113 cannabinoids found in the hemp plant (cannabis sativa).  CBD is also the most researched cannabinoid.  Clinical research is ongoing and preliminary studies have shown promise for CBD to treat anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, pain, and a range of additional ailments.

Are there side effects with using CBD?

To our knowledge, drowsiness is the only known side effect of CBD (when taken in very high doses).  If you are new to CBD, our suggestion is to take your first dose at night or when you will be home for the day.  All studies and evidence to our knowledge point to CBD being safe to use.  As with any supplement, you should consult your physician for any possible drug interactions or complications.

How much CBD oil should I take?

Everyone is different, and one person's body may absorb more or less than the next.  Some people feel that the best way to start taking CBD is to find your own "goldilocks" zone.  This simply means to start at a lower dose that you feel comfortable with, while gradually increasing the dosage until you experience the desired effect.  We must emphasize, we do not give medical advice, and this is merely suggested usage based on anecdotal evidence.

Most agree that the sublingual method helps to maximize absorption into your bloodstream.  Fill the dropper to the desired level, and dispense oil underneath the tongue.  Avoid touching your mouth to the dropper. Do not swallow for at least 60 seconds.  This product can also be applied topically or used orally.

Full Spectrum or THC-Free CBD, what's the difference?

Our full-spectrum product line contains "whole-plant" full spectrum hemp extract. This extract consists mostly of CBD but also includes "minor" cannabinoids such as CBG, CBG, CBC, and trace amounts of THC.  Full spectrum extracts are thought to be more beneficial than extracts containing only CBD. Our THC-Free product line utilizes isolated cannabinoids (CBD or CBG). CBD is extracted and separated (isolated) from the rest of the plant material.  What is left is an ultra-pure (99% or higher) crystalline powder containing 0% THC or other cannabinoids.  THC-Free products are still very effective, and may be the right choice for someone who is sensitive to THC or for those who are prohibited from using THC.

Will I fail a drug test?

(FULL SPECTRUM PRODUCTS) It is unlikely, but possible.  Our full spectrum products are made using a whole-plant extract that contains trace amounts of THC (0.3% or less).  If you are using the product moderately (1-2 times a day), there is a small chance that you may test positive on a properly administered drug test.

( THC-FREE PRODUCTS)  It is very unlikely.  Our THC-Free products are made from an isolated THC-Free hemp extract.  If you are given a drug test that adheres to professional laboratory standards it should not test positive for THC.  It is possible, but still very unlikely, that a substandard test could read a false positive due to the molecular structure of THC, CBD, and other minor cannabinoids. (I.E. the test mistakes CBD for THC).

Will it cure my ______?

We would never claim that CBD is a cure for any disease or ailment.  Our advice is to stay away from any company who does so.  Our products should be treated as nutritional supplements.  If your body were a garden, CBD is it's gardener - tending and trimming as needed.
