Frequently Asked Questions About CBD Products

FAQ

What Is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol, a compound naturally found in hemp and cannabis plants. Unlike THC, it is non-intoxicating, and it does not produce a high. Numerous studies indicate that CBD may support homeostasis, or balance in your body’s natural rhythms.

What Are The Benefits Of Using CBD?

The US Food and Drug Administration currently prohibits all manufacturers of dietary supplements from making any claims about the ability of their products to treat specific health conditions. Health claims are only permitted where approved by the FDA and based on accepted clinical trials. Because CBD is relatively new to the market, the lengthy clinical trial period is still in process.

Is CBD Legal In My State?

In the United States, cannabidiol is a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substances Act. This means that production, distribution and possession of CBD is illegal under federal law. In 2016, the Drug Enforcement Administration added “marijuana extracts” to the list of Schedule I drugs, which it defined as “an extract containing one or more cannabinoids that has been derived from any plant of the genus Cannabis, other than the separated resin (whether crude or purified) obtained from the plant.” Previously, CBD had simply been considered “marijuana”, which is also a Schedule I drug. In June 2018, the FDA approved oral use of CBD as an anti-seizure drug in treating rare types of childhood epilepsy. This is a contradiction as Schedule 1 substances by definition have no accepted medical use. Superior CBD Hemp Oil

A CNN program that featured Charlotte’s Web cannabis in 2013 brought increased attention to the use of CBD in the treatment of seizure disorders. Since then, 16 states have passed laws to allow for the use of CBD products (not exceeding a specified concentration of THC) for the treatment of certain medical conditions. This is in addition to the 30 states that have passed comprehensive medical cannabis laws, which allow for the use of cannabis products with no restrictions on THC content. Of these 30 states, eight have legalized the use and sale of cannabis products without requirement for a doctor’s recommendation. Superior CBD Hemp Oil

Although most states restrict the use of CBD products to certain medical conditions, manufacturers of CBD claim their products are derived from industrial hemp, and therefore legal for anyone to use. A number of these manufacturers ship CBD products to all 50 states, which the federal government has so far not intervened in. CBD is also openly sold in head shops, health food stores, chiropractor clinics, optometrist offices, doctors offices and pharmacies in some states where such sales have not been explicitly legalized.

Do I Need A Prescription Or Medical Card To Order?

No! A medical card or prescription is not needed to place an order.

Is There THC In Your CBD Product?

CBD is extracted from industrial hemp plants, which by law can have no more than .03% THC. This is already not enough to produce a high. We then reduce the THC content in our products further, all the way down to Non-Detectable (ND) levels to reassure our customers that our products are non-intoxicating.

What Are Terpenes?

Terpenes are organic compounds from plants that give fruits and flowers their taste and aroma. We offer CBD terpenes, which are oils with terpenes, for their amazing flavors, and to tap into a phenomenon known as the “entourage effect”. This effect is based on research which suggests that multiple compounds within a hemp plant interact with the body for greater potential impact.

Will CBD Get Me High?

THC is the chemical that produces a “High”. CBD has Non-Detectable THC at most and is filtered out leaving 100% pure, natural CBD.

Will I Fail A Drug Test After Consuming CBD?

You will not fail any drug tests since these tests do not detect such low levels of THC.

What Is The Endocannabinoid System?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of cannabinoid receptors in your brain and nervous system. CBD interacts with cannabinoid receptors which keeps your body in balance.

Are Your Products Non-GMO?

Yes

What Type Of Extraction Do You Use?

To extract CBD from the the hemp plant, we utilize a process in which C02 is at a low temperature, under high pressure. This allows us to capture C02 in a liquid state and efficiently draw the CBD and terpenes from the plant material.

How Is Hemp Different From Marijuana?
