FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is CBD?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of many cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. Hemp is what's grown to produce high amounts of CBD and below 0.3% THC. CBD is one of the non-intoxicating cannabinoids, meaning you don't get a “high” or "stoned" feeling from it. Studies and people claim many health benefits from CBD. Cannabinoids have been used for thousands of years in Asia and then throughout the rest of world before it was made illegal. CBD reacts to our endocannabinoid system which is in charge of receptors that have to do with bringing our body back into homeostasis when disrupted from things like pain or illnesses.
Are all the hemp products sold on major reputable e-commerce websites CBD?
No. Big reputable e-commerce websites like amazon and etsy do not allow the sale of CBD. The products they are selling is hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil is hemp seeds pressed into an oil. We do not disregard the health benefits people claim with hemp seed oil, but hemp seed oil is not CBD and does not have any cannabinoids or terpenes in it. These major companies will most likely allow the sale of CBD and possibly other cannabinoids once the government takes cannabis off the schedule list.
How do you take CBD?
Tinctures are the most common way people take CBD. You can take a tincture sublingually (under the tongue) or add to a beverage including water or curtain kinds of food like soups and oatmeal. Sublingually is the best approach with tinctures because the effects come on quicker and stronger. To take sublingually you simply put the recommended dose under the tongue then hold for 30 to 60 seconds before swallowing.
You take a CBD capsule just as you would with any capsule following the dosing and directions. Capsules usually take around 10 minutes to an hour to start feeling the effects, it all depends on the metabolism and how full the stomach is.
People also consume CBD in edible products like gummies, cookies, brownies, cupcakes and crackers. Edibles usually take around 20 minutes to an hour to start feeling the effects, it all depends on the metabolism and how full the stomach is.
You can apply CBD creams and salves topically for pain and stiffness. Just apply to the affected area let dry and that's it!

What is the difference between CBD, THC, hemp, cannabis and marijuana?
With states legalizing medical and recreational use of cannabis, names are becoming more confusing than ever. Hemp, marijuana, CBD and THC all come from the same plant species known as CANNABIS. Basically cannabis is all of it! Hemp is one of the species under the cannabis umbrella that is used to produce certain cannabinoids like CBD but has very low to no THC. Hemp is also grown to make fabric, rope, oil, biofuel, paper and many other commercial products. Marijuana is just a street drug name given to the cannabis plant preferably high in THC, nothing else. CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. There are over a 100 cannabinoids that have been found in the cannabis plant, some give an intoxicating feeling and some are non-intoxicating. CBD is one of the non-intoxicating cannabinoids meaning you don't get a "high" or "stoned" feeling from it like you do with THC. All cannabinoids offer benefits and help with certain conditions.
