Top 10 CBD Frequently Asked Questions and Answers. Start Here..

What's the difference between CBD Hemp and Cannabis?  
All hemp is cannabis. Hemp is just a title (a category) that the federal government has given any cannabis plant that has less than 0.3% THC.


What's the difference between CBD and THC?
They're produced by the same plant, Cannabis, but they're vastly different.


Will CBD get me high?
No, it is not possible. CBD works on the CB2 receptor. The CB1 receptor is the receptor responsible for psychoactive effects. If you're not activating that CB1 receptor, you're not going to get high.


Is it impossible to have any psychedelic effect with 0.3% THC? Are there any cases or research that has been done?
With the pharmacokinetics of what we know of CBD and THC, and how they activate and metabolize in the endocannabinoid system, you will not get high or be intoxicated from <0.3% THC.


How much THC do you need to get high? What’s the percentage? 
This is tricky question and it changes from person to person. A few things to take into consideration are: tolerance, sensitivity, how quickly you metabolize THC, and your intake method. But a general rule of thumb is that once you get into the 10% range just about everybody is going to be like "OK, I feel something, and there's some psychoactive effects going on."


What percent of THC is in Hemp Flower or Cannabis? 
The average now for your typical dispensary boutique type cannabis is ~17-24% THC. And with a hemp flower, it throws another variable in because you are combusting it. Even though you might have a flower that's 24% THC, if you're combusting it, you're going to burn off a large percentage of that THC. The bioavailability of THC from a combusted flower is pretty low - it's 25% or so. If you vape that product, you're not actually combusting it. You're just evaporating the THC and inhaling it that way, and probably double the bioavailability, but most of your dispensary flower is around 17-24% or 25%. 
If cannabis plant matter is properly combusted, that happens at 455°F. Desktop vaporizers or dry flower driver vaporizers usually max out at 420°F, and that's because they're trying to prevent any combustion from taking place.


Will CBD cause me to fail a drug test? 
We carry full spectrum CBD products containing <0.3% THC. Though you're not going to feel psychoactive effects from that, it could result in a positive drug test. We recommend to communicate with your employer first before trying our CBD.


How long does CBD take to “work”? 
It depends on how you take it, what your goals are, what you're taking it for, down to what you've eaten, and how you metabolize. However, just because you don't feel anything with CBD doesn't mean that it's not working. You're not supposed to necessarily feel anything, psychoactive speaking. We recommend to keep a daily log for a week or two, once a day, about how you’re feeling and your experiences. If you're not reaching your goal after a week or two, play with the dosage. CBD is not a one size fits all.


How do I know if your CBD products are legit or safe?  
Our products are third party tested. Please see the product label and the COA added on each product page. We are using a vapor distillation technique for our CBD products which provides the cleanest and purest experience in an extracted form.


Can I overdose on CBD? 
No, you can't. 


What is the % purity of the CBD in your product? 
Please see the product’s COA on the product page.

Is your CBD certified organic? 


Is your CBD hemp derived?  
Yes, all CBD is hemp derived.


Are CBD Oil and Hemp Seed Oil the same thing? 
No. The confusion lies within the fact that hemp seed oil comes from hemp seeds. The issue is, hemp seeds/the hemp plant/cannabis plant does not produce any cannabinoids, or any detectable cannabinoids until it has reached reproductive maturity, so you can extract all you want from hemp seeds and you'll get some nutritious vitamin rich, mineral rich oil, but you're not going to get cannabinoids.


Can I use CBD if I'm prescribed XYZ medication?  
Please consult with your doctor before trying any CBD product!
From our research, 60-70% of modern medication uses the cytochrome P-450 enzyme in the liver to metabolize that medication, and CBD also uses that same enzyme. Thus, it creates a competitive environment. If you’re on blood thinner and you also take CBD, they can compete for space. What's happening is the CBD molecule will put those P-450 enzymes into hyperdrive, while the blood thinning medication may be designed to metabolize over the course of six hours. If you are loaded up on CBD and that cytochrome enzyme is really being activated, what happens is your body may metabolize that blood thinner more quickly. Again, please consult with your doctor before trying any CBD product especially if you are on a medication! These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Can I give my pet CBD?
Please consult with your Veterinarian before giving your furry friend CBD!

There's not a special CBD that is only for pets, especially for a full spectrum product. We're in the early stages of understanding the endocannabinoid system in humans and while we know that all other animals have endocannabinoid systems, cats and dogs have extremely sensitive endocannabinoid system. So if a 0.3% THC may not even affect you, if you give that to a 15 lb. puppy or cat, it could very well send them on a wild ride. 

All that being said, there's evidence that it is safe, like you can't have respiratory compression from the endocannabinoids system being activated, so a lot of people do give their pets CBD products.

Can I give my kids CBD?
Please consult with your Pediatrician to see if your child needs or would benefit from CBD.
