What is CBD oil?
CBD or cannabidiol is derived from the hemp plant and may also be known as Hemp Oil. Our products are derived from the whole plant using an ethanol extraction. This method of extraction provides the highest potency while extracting the full range of cannabinoids. This is important, because CBD can provide a wide range of health benefits. The various cannabinoids do different things for our bodies, so having the full spectrum oils means that you are getting maximum health benefits.
Once extracted, the hemp oil looks like molasses. It is combined with a carrier oil (and sometimes a natural flavoring) to create our full spectrum tinctures which can be taken sub-lingually.
What does CBD help with?
Here’s a list of things CBD helps with:
How does CBD help with all this?
This question is quite a bit more complicated to answer and there are lots of articles online that go into detail. Basically, our bodies have their own endocannabinoid system. The cannabinoids in the products we sell bind to your endocannabinoid system to carry the health benefits of the different cannabinoids that you are ingesting.
Studies have shown a decrease in seizures, cancer cells, and inflammation for people taking CBD, because our bodies are so receptive to cannabinoids.
Will CBD get me high?
Nope. It won’t. That’s the short answer. The cannabinoid in marijuana that gets us high is called THC. Our hemp oil products all contain less than 0.3% THC as required by federal law. Therefore, there isn’t enough THC to get a person high.
Wait. This is marijuana? Is this legal?
Lets be clear. No, this is not marijuana. These products are derived from the hemp plant, not from marijuana. Hemp contains less than 0.3% THC while the THC levels in marijuana are much higher. No one is walking around smoking a joint of rolled up hemp flower to get high – maybe for the health benefits, but definitely not to get high. Marijuana contains levels of THC in the 15% – 40% range. As you can see, there is a clear difference. The federal government has recognized that THC levels below 0.3% do not produce psychoactive effects (a high) and is only concerned with products that actually do get you high. They are not concerned with CBD oils and hemp oil like the products sold on this website.
I’ve tried CBD. Why didn’t it work for me?
There are a ton of products out there that claim to be CBD. We have looked at so many products available to the public and have been appalled at what we have seen on labels. The most common wording we’ve seen is products claiming to be CBD but the only CBD-esq ingredient is Hempseed oil. It’s important to note that hempseed oil will not have the range of cannabinoids that you’re looking for in order to get the health benefits that CBD provides. Now I know it may seem trivial, but hempseed oil and hemp oil are not the same thing. Hemp oil, or CBD, is what you’ll find on this website. That’s not to say that hempseed oil is bad. It isn’t. Hempseed oil has many uses as well and is one of the ingredients in our CBD Lip Balm, but CBD is also an ingredient in the lip balm. Read your labels. Know what you are putting into your body. And better yet, know how the product was processed. Our products are processed so that what you purchase from us has the highest potency possible. We know, you’ll get the benefits from the products on this site.
If you have a product that you have verified is potent and pure, then you may need to play with your dosage amounts and adjust for your own body chemistry, weight, age, etc. And, always, consult with your doctor when trying to figure out the right dosage. And let your doctor know that you have added CBD oil or hemp oil to your daily regimen.
Will I test positive in a drug test?
You might. In our research, we have found conflicting information on this topic. If your job does drug testing, we recommend letting them know that you are taking CBD oil. Although, telling your employer may work for or against you. While the THC levels are low, they may still ping a positive on a drug test or may be low enough to not show up at all.
