CBD Facts

What is CBD?

CBD is short for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is an extract from hemp, a commonly used term for strains of the cannabis sativa plant with very low levels of THC. Today, hemp is used in a wide range of products in the United States and globally.


How is Hemp different from marijuana?

Hemp is not marijuana and it will not get you ‘high.’ Hemp, or industrial hemp, is a commonly used term for cannabis sativa plant strains which contain very low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and are typically used for its fiber and seeds.


Why am I not feeling the desired effect?

The first thing to remember is CBD is not THC. It does not provide any psychoactive effects. The relaxing effect of CBD depends on many factors, including the amount consumed, the rate at which it is consumed, your body mass, and your metabolism. Feel free to try our other products in search of your desired effect.


Is CBD psychoactive?

No. Hemp oil contains CBD, the non-psychoactive compounds of the cannabis plant. Hemp oil does not have the psychoactive qualities found in THC. While using CBD, you can maintain a clear mind and active lifestyle.

Will CBD show up on a drug test?

It depends. Our CBD products contain zero to less than .3 THC. Some drug tests can’t differentiate among cannabinoids. CBD is from plants (hemp) in the cannabis family. Therefore we cannot guarantee CBD will not show up. If you expect to take a drug test, we recommend not taking any CBD products.


Is CBD legal?

CBD has been legal since 2018 by the federal government on passing of the 2018 farm bill. But that doesn’t mean each state has approved CBD. We have compiled an updated list of each states current laws.


FDA Warning & Health Warnings About CBD

The FDA also published a revised Consumer Update detailing safety concerns about CBD products more broadly.
• The FDA has approved only one CBD product, a prescription drug product to treat two rare, severe forms of epilepsy.
• It is currently illegal to market CBD by adding it to a food or labeling it as a dietary supplement.
• The FDA has seen only limited data about CBD safety and these data point to real risks that need to be considered before taking CBD for any reason.
• Some CBD products are being marketed with unproven medical claims and are of unknown quality.
• The FDA will continue to update the public as it learns more about CBD.
1. CBD has the potential to harm you, and harm can happen even before you become aware of it.
• CBD can cause liver injury.
• CBD can affect the metabolism of other drugs, causing serious side effects.
• Use of CBD with alcohol or other Central Nervous System depressants increases the risk of sedation and drowsiness, which can lead to injuries.
2. CBD can cause side effects that you might notice. These side effects should improve when CBD is stopped or when the amount ingested is reduced.
• Changes in alertness, most commonly experienced as somnolence (drowsiness or sleepiness).
• Gastrointestinal distress, most commonly experienced as diarrhea and/or decreased appetite.
• Changes in mood, most commonly experienced as irritability and agitation.
3. There are many important aspects about CBD that we just don’t know, such as:
• What happens if you take CBD daily for sustained periods of time?
• What is the effect of CBD on the developing brain (such as children who take CBD)?
• What are the effects of CBD on the developing fetus or breastfed newborn?
• How does CBD interact with herbs and botanicals?
• Does CBD cause male reproductive toxicity in humans, as has been reported in studies of animals?
We recommends speaking to a Medical Professional before consuming CBD. For more information visit FDA.gov


Can CBD cause you to get sick?

It can cause nausea and general sickness.
Nausea and gastrointestinal issues are a pretty common side effect of CBD oil. This can lead to vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness and other symptoms associated with a digestive problem (think how you would feel after eating something that disagreed with you). In part, some people simply don’t digest CBD oil well. This is not uncommon with oils and supplements.
