- WHAT IS CBD?
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound of cannabis. CBD can be extracted from organic hemp to have all the good parts of the plant but THC, which is what you'll find in our shop. This means that our CBD products have zero THC and none of the psychoactive, or "stoney" effects of traditional cannabis.
CBD works by interacting with cells in both the the brain and nervous system. These molecules are called cannabinoid receptors (CB1 & CB2). The relationship between these cells and receptors is thought to affect the immune system. For example, CBD may prevent the body from metabolizing anandamide, a compound associated with pain regulation. So, maintaining high levels of anandamides in your bloodstream may reduce your feelings of pain.
CBD is also thought to limit inflammation within the body, which may also help reduce pain and other immune system responses.
- HOW IS CBD DIFFERENT THAN THC?
Both CBD and THC are cannabinoids which may help with pain and other health issues, but they have different properties and applications. THC is psychoactive, which means it will give you that "stoney" effect that we all know about. THC is also a controlled substance and therefore its legality varies per state. CBD is non-psychoactive, however, and legal in all 50 states. There is no cap to how much CBD you can take, and may even work for your pets as well!
- WHAT DOSAGE SHOULD I CHOOSE FOR MYSELF?
Dosage truly varies greatly between patients- someone could take 2mg, all the way up to 1000mg. We recommend a starting dose of about 5mg, and then working your way up if more is needed.
- WHAT TREATMENT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND FOR ANXIETY?
We recommend ingestibles such as our special proprietary blend tinctures, or our CBD edibles. Our Calming Blend contains essential oils targeted for sleep and anxiety- give that a try! CBD should also be taken daily so it can build up in your system over time and provide consistent relief.
- WHAT TREATMENT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND FOR PAIN?
We recommend an inside and out method for pain. This consists of ingestibles, such as our tinctures and edibles (the Recovery or Anti-Inflammatory Blend would be perfect) taken daily. Paired with out special proprietary salves, this treatment method can be very effective for pain, aches, and spasms.
- WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CBD PRODUCTS?
CBD has been proven to help with symptoms of LGS and Dravet syndrome, which are two forms of epilepsy. CBD may also help with a variety of conditions, as well as pain, nausea, inflammation, insomnia, and anxiety. Results vary based on each individual.
- IS CBD SAFE FOR PETS?
Yes! CBD is safe for pets. They have endocannabinoid systems just like us, so CBD works in the same way. Pets usually just need a much smaller dose than humans. CBD is great for pet anxiety, helping heal surgeries, sore hips, and more for pets.
- WILL I GET HIGH FROM USING CBD PRODUCTS?
No, our CBD will not get you high. THC is the cannabinoid that we associate with the "high", and our broad spectrum hemp oil is 0.0% THC. Therefore, there is no risk like there would be with products that are above this percentage.
- IS THERE AN AGE RESTRICTION ON THIS PRODUCT?
CBD is safe and legal for all ages, though we always recommend talking to your or your child's physician before adding it in to your health regimen.
- WILL I FAIL MY DRUG TEST AT WORK IF I USE CBD-INFUSED PRODUCTS?
Nope! Unlike some other brands, our broad spectrum hemp oil is 0.0% THC. Therefore there is absolutely no risk like there would be with products that are above this percentage.
