Commonly Asked Questions
Will CBD relieve or cure my condition?
While we may know a lot about how this product can change your life, federal laws prohibit us from making health claims regarding (CBD) hemp extracts as a medication. Research shows that Full Spectrum CBD extracts are extremely helpful in managing many different health challenges. Please refer to http://projectcbd.org for more information on how CBD may be helpful for your specific condition.
What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?
The ECS regulates your body’s homeostasis and is responsible for repairing damaged cells, including neurons! Our bodies naturally produce endogenous cannabinoids, primarily Anandamide and 2AG. Genetics, age, environment, and other factors, can create imbalances in our bodies, at which point our Endocannabinoid System needs support in order to function optimally. Exercise, sleep, diet, and stress all affect the health and vitality of our ECS. Studies show that when you supplement your Endocannabinoid System with healthy non-toxic phyto-cannabinoids, it may be possible to improve and maintain a healthier ECS.
Does CBD make you feel high?
CBD does not have the same obvious psychoactive effects as THC. However, you may feel more calm, relaxed and focused. Our full spectrum CBD products do contain a small amount of THC, and tests well under the 0.3% THC limit for industrial hemp.
Will taking CBD cause me to fail a drug test?
According to usdrugtestcenters.com, most CBD consumers won’t have trouble passing a drug test. For those using extremely high levels of CBD (over 2,000 mg per day) it’s possible that this could produce a “false positive” result on a drug test. Full spectrum CBD products which include small amounts of THC may be more likely to cause a failed drug test if consumed daily in moderate to high amounts. Every body is different, and we cannot know with certainty what daily amount is safe to consume, if any, without risk of failing a drug test. If this is of concern at all, you may want to refrain from using Full Spectrum CBD products.
What is the difference between Full Spectrum CBD and Isolate CBD?
Full Spectrum CBD is whole plant medicine. It includes all the cannabinoids, terpenoids, and flavonoids present in the plant. These compounds contribute to what is known as “the entourage effect”. In other words, all the compounds in the plant work synergistically together to provide an optimally effective experience. Isolate is the CBD molecule at around 99.5 – 99.9% purity. Studies have shown that Full Spectrum CBD is more effective at relieving symptoms than isolate. In addition, much lower doses are necessary to gain effectiveness from the CBD product being used. Studies have also revealed that the efficacy of isolate is on a bell curve. As a result, higher amounts are needed and are effective for a shorter duration than a Full Spectrum CBD product.
What is the best way to consume CBD?
There are many ways and methods to consume CBD. Oral ingestion with tinctures, drinks, edibles, capsules, etc. Sublingually with tinctures and sprays, transdermally with salves, creams, soaps, shampoos, etc. Inhalation by smoking or vaping the raw herb (flower), vape pens from an extract, or dabbing a concentrate. The fastest method of absorption is inhalation, which also has the shortest duration. Whereas sublingual absorption is nearly as fast as inhalation and a longer duration. No matter what intake method, every body reacts differently. Your bodies chemistry, metabolism, weight, among other factors determine how well you absorb the dose and how effective it is.
Where do you source your Hemp and CBD?
All of our products are made from phytocannabinoid rich hemp grown in Oregon native soil without the use of pesticides or herbicides. Our hemp is cold extracted with organic ethanol which allows for optimal retention of cannabinoid, terpenes, and other beneficial compounds.
