General CBD Questions:

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.

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).

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. 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
