What is CBD?
CBD (short for cannabinoid) is the primary chemical compound associated with the healing properties found in cannabis and hemp plants.
Is CBD the same as marijuana?
No. CBD is just one chemical compound found in hemp & cannabis plants. CBD is carefully extracted, refined, and has a wide range of health benefits for every mammal.
Will CBD get me high?
No. The intoxicating or psychoactive effects of marijuana are derived from the chemical compound THC. CBD is not psychoactive, is non-toxic, has no known lethal dosage, and has no abuse potential.
Will I pass a drug test while using a CBD supplement?
It depends on the drug test. Various tests will measure different things in your body. Because the CBD products we carry are produced from industrial hemp, there is less than.3% of THC in products. Some have zero THC. An NCAA athlete on our team was tested while using our products and never tested positive. When in doubt, you can ask those who are running the test if CBD would show up.
How long does it take to feel the effects of CBD supplements?
It varies according to how you choose to take CBD, or in what form.. Tinctures and infusions absorb within a matter of minutes, while capsules can take up to 30 minutes to process.
How long do the effects last?
This varies from person to person depending on the amount your taking, the method your taking, and how your body metabolizes it. You can expect a longer, slower release for anything ingested and shorter, quicker effects for sublinguals and topicals.
How much should I take?
If you’re relatively new to CBD and alternative wellness supplements, it’s good to start with a small dosage and work your way up gradually. A dosage of 10 mg twice a day is a good way to start.
When should I take CBD?
While there is no right or wrong time to take CBD, we recommend making it a part of your morning routine, or as needed to regulate pain or other immediate issues.
Do I have to have a severe issue/illness to take CBD?
Certainly not. Daily intake of CBD is just good maintenance for your body. It’s a great preventative supplement, and the powerful anti-inflammatory properties contained in CBD help keep your body functioning at an optimal level. Think of it as a daily vitamin, strengthening both your immune & nervous systems.
