Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid derived from the Hemp Plant. It is used for its effective and non-intoxicating pain/stress relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. Not to be confused with THC, CBD does not get you high in any way. This is because CBD does not affect the same receptors as THC. CBD is an entirely different compound from THC, and its effects on the human body are complex.

This seemingly simple question used to have many people — from mainstream Americans to federal regulators — utterly confused. Before digging into the details, the bottom line is that cannabidiol is 100% legal across the board thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill signed into law by President Trump. Cannabidiol itself is not specifically listed on the United States Controlled Substances Act, the way THC and marijuana are.

Within the swiftly growing cannabis oil industry is a new category of products seeing its own equally rapid rise in popularity: cannabidiol hemp oil, or CBD hemp oil. CBD hemp oil is made from high-CBD, low-THC hemp, unlike medical marijuana products, which are usually made from plants with high concentrations of psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Although it is a cannabinoid, CBD does not directly interact with the two classical cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2). Instead, it affects signaling through the CB1 and CB2 receptors indirectly. These indirect actions include activating TRPV1 receptors that work to control important functions like pain perception, body temperature and inflammation. In addition to its indirect influence on the CB1 and CB2 receptors, CBD can increase levels of the body’s own naturally-produced cannabinoids known as Endogenous Cannabinoids (Endocannabinoids) by inhibiting the enzymes that break them down.

This depends on many factors. Things such as the dose you took, your metabolism, what else you have eaten and if you have used CBD oil before all play a role in when and how your body responds. In short, typically 30-60 minutes you should start to notice reduced sharpness of pain or aching as well as anxiety or stress and as the hours pass, you should expect to notice these symptoms even less.

CBD for athletes has become a popular topic in locker rooms and gyms as a safe alternative to pain medications. Not only because it is non-psychoactive and not addictive, but also due to CBD’s effectiveness in supporting health and wellness among athletes. The damage to the human body from competition and exercise comes in various forms. From the oxidation of cells to the subtle tearing of the muscles, your body is put to the test after years of activity.

Much like the consumption of poppy seeds may lead to a positive drug test for opioids, the consumption of certain hemp products may lead to a positive drug test for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is inherently present in trace amounts in hemp plants. The legal limit of THC in hemp is no more than 0.3%.

After 35 years of research, scientists have only just begun to understand the importance of theHEcS. The discovery of the HEcS is arguably the most important discovery in human physiology in the late Twentieth Century. Research has revealed that the HEcS is responsible for maintaining and controlling the body’s homeostasis, or balanced regulation of every system in the body.

Federally, yes. But each state has its own rules. Currently, Idaho and a few other states are not friendly toward plant based products made with hemp, but we ship to these states every day.

There are no known and proven side effects to CBD at this time. Some clients (.01%) who utilize full spectrum oils have reported some mild headaches, but once they switched to broad spectrum, the headaches went away. Some people do experience a clarity of focus and a racing of the mind if they take CBD oil before bed, but this is an effect of MCT oil, not CBD. We encourage people to take CBD oil for help sleeping at least 2-3 hours before bed or with dinner to avoid this if it is an issue.

CBD and other cannabinoids have been proven to help many people with their anxiety. To make sure it works for you, try it on a regimen, taking a full 20mg-30mg daily for at least 5 days and see if it helps. Unfortunately, there is a small percentage of people who simply can’t process CBD properly, however, this is rare.

CBD and the broad spectrum of minor cannabinoids and terpenes are proven to help with ongoing as well as acute neuropathic and other physical inflammation based pain related to connective tissues disorders such as Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus. The most recent study showed that taking CBD daily for five days led to a 10x more powerful pain relief outcome than ibuprofen with zero negative effects on liver, kidneys or any other bodily system.

CBD can help autism through increased focus and clarity as well as a calming effect. This is very specific to each person, so try it out and see what results you get.

CBD has been proven to help in acute onset pain, but not as well as an ongoing pain relief manner. If migraines are a weekly or monthly occurrence, then using CBD daily will likely help with this. It will not cure it, but it should help take the edge off. If you get migraines occasionally and then try and treat with CBD at onset of symptoms, it won’t hurt, but will likely need to be combined with other traditional pain relievers for such and acute attack.

Yes, CBD is shown to be very effective in the treatment of inflammation based pain due to connective tissues disorders such as fibromyalgia. CBD and the broad spectrum of minor cannabinoids and terpenes are proven to help with ongoing as well as acute neuropathic and other physical inflammation based pain related to connective tissues disorders such as Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus. The most recent study showed that taking CBD daily for five days led to a 10x more powerful pain relief outcome than ibuprofen with zero negative effects on liver, kidneys or any other bodily system.

This is a tricky question. Isolate based CBD products are likely not to show up, but still can not be guaranteed not to trigger any and all drug tests. We use Non-detectable THC broad spectrum solventless CBD distillate for all of our products and as such should not cause.
