Questions About CBD

No High

THC gets you high. CBD does not. Cannabidiol (CBD) makes you feel better. All our products contain less than 0.3% THC. The national legal limit is 0-0.3% THC to support healing.

It's Legal

We comply with state & national cannabis laws. The CBD products sold here are legal in all 50 states.   

Personalized Medicine

Cannabis therapeutics is personalized medicine. The right treatment regimen depends on the person and condition being treated.

How Will I Know it Works

Every product is different, just as a typical over-the-counter medicine, effects will vary. With CBD, start small, take note of the effects on your body and increase as needed.

CBD and Other Medications

CBD is a very safe substance. Patients taking other medications should check with their doctor about drug interactions. CBD is a potent inhibitor so ask your doctor if grapefruit interacts with your medication. If grapefruit does, then CBD probably does, too. Patients on a CBD-rich treatment regimen should monitor changes in blood levels of prescription medications as dosage may need adjusting by your doctor. 

Drug Testing 

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that you will pass a drug test while taking CBD products. Most drug tests are testing for THC and its metabolites only. However, there are drug tests in use that are sensitive enough to detect any and all cannabinoids, including CBD. Many corporations, the U.S. military, and American state and federal governments typically use these more stringent tests - in addition to pain clinics. We encourage consumers to be mindful of their employer’s or clinic’s drug testing policies if they have concerns about using any cannabis product.

Ask your doctor to document that you are taking CBD as apart of your treatment regimen to possibly offset actions taken by your employer. 

 
Lab Testing

The brands we carry all conduct 3rd party testing for their product lines. This step provides validity in any cannabis or cannabidiol brand by revealing the levels of CBD, any THC (<0.3%), terpenes or other additives in each product.

 
FDA

CBD Oil, Cannabis Oil, and Hemp Oil are not regulated by the FDA. These products have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration so we can make no medical claims. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. But every day, research is making promising strides to support its benefits to overall health.

Quality Product 

When choosing a CBD Oil, look for the following: 

Clear Labels: Look for labels showing the quantity and ratio of CBD and THC per dose, a manufacturing date and batch number (for quality control).


Lab Testing: Look for products that are tested for consistency, and verified as free of mold, bacteria, pesticides, solvent residues, and other contaminants.


Quality Ingredients: Select products with quality ingredients. No corn syrup, GMOs, transfats, and artificial additives.


Safe Extraction: Avoid products extracted with toxic solvents like BHO, propane, hexane or other hydrocarbons. Solvent residues are especially dangerous for immune-compromised patients. Look for products that entail a safer method of extraction like supercritical CO2.

 Key Terms to Know

 

Terpenes -naturally occurring aromatic oils that produce different sensations and effects on the body. By simply smelling these “terps,” you might find your mood lifted, your anxiety reduced or your body relaxed. Like cannabinoids, they interact with cannabinoid receptors within the body to exert different physiological effects and mediate cannabinoid interactions.

Terpenes are not exclusive to cannabis They are also in numerous plants including fruits, flowering plants and grains. Myrcene, a terpene, has a musky scent that has been shown to increase permeability between the blood/brain barrier, can be found in cannabis, beer and mangos. 

Look at the below chart for benefits of major terpenes.

Cannabinoids -the chemical compounds secreted by cannabis flowers that provide relief to an array of symptoms including pain, nausea, anxiety, and inflammation. These work their medicinal magic by imitating compounds our bodies naturally produce, called endocannabinoids, which activate to maintain internal stability and health. To put a complex system simply, they mediate communication between cells, and when there is a deficiency or problem with our endocannabinoid system, unpleasant symptoms and physical complications occur.

When cannabis is consumed, cannabinoids bind to receptor sites throughout our brain (receptors called CB-1) and body (CB-2). Different cannabinoids have different effects depending on which receptors they bind to. For example, THC binds to receptors in the brain whereas CBN (cannabinol) has a strong affinity for CB-2 receptors located throughout the body.

Cannabis contains at least 85 types of cannabinoids, many of which have documented medical value. The below wheel serves as a resource to determine which cannabinoids may help treat symptoms associated with mood, eating/gastrointestinal disorders, neurological disorders, pain, sleep disorders, and other medical conditions.
