CBD FAQ - 23 Questions Answered

23 Frequently asked questions about CBD ( Cannabidiol ) Hemp Oil:

1. What is Cannabidiol CBD Oil ?

Cannabidiol CBD Oil is one of more than 80 known components found in cannabis. There’s an ever increasing amount of research pointing to various health benefits in CBD, all while being non-psychoactive.The component responsible for giving users a “high” is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is prevalent in marijuana.CBD is not considered to have any street value due to its lack of psychoactive effects and risk of abuse. Rather, CBD in discernible amounts reportedly promotes a calming, sedative effect.If interested in an aide to perform your own research, we recommend referencing Granny Storm Crow’s List for an extensive collection of CBD research relevant to specific conditions.

2. How does Cannabidiol CBD Oil work ?

Simply put, CBD stimulates and regulates the endo-cannabinoid system, a group of neuromodulators in our body responsible for a variety of physiological processes.To understand how CBD works, we need to know that our bodies produce many different cannabinoidsthat interact with our cannabinoid receptors. The endo-cannabinoid system regulates appetite,pain-sensation, mood, memory and more by producing cannabinoids to interact with our body’s cannabinoid receptors that are found in the brain, as well as on some of our organs. While most cannabinoids bind into these receptors, CBD, which is essentially a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in plants, interacts with the endo-cannabinoid system indirectly, regulating the production of our own internal cannabinoids and promoting the overall health of our endo-cannabinoid system.The endo-cannabinoid system plays a crucial role in the normal functions of the immune and nervous systems. By stimulating and regulating the endo-cannabinoid system with CBD, we can observe a wide variety of positive effects, as showcased by numerous recent studies on the subject. Research on the exact properties of CBD and its interaction with our bodies is currently underway and scientists uncover new facts about this cannabinoid literally every month. So far, the results have been almost exclusively encouraging.

3. Who can take Cannabidiol CBD Oil ?

As this is a food based product, there is no restriction on who can take this unless there are other concerns, medications or other health related reasons. We always recommend you consult with a medical professional.

4. Will Cannabidiol CBD Oil help me if I’m healthy ?

Our products support your general health and well being.

5. Is Cannabidiol CBD Oil Legal ?

Short answer: CBD, produced through the proper means, is legal everywhere.Our hemp oil products are legal to consume, sell and possess in the U.S., as well as many other countries in the world. Industrial hemp oil and all its derivatives are considered food or supplements. Our hemp is imported according to all safety standards and handled in an FDA-registered process facility in the U.S. There is a clear legal distinction between industrial hemp and marijuana, which is a controlled substance. However, hemp produced within the U.S. isn’t compliant with federal regulations and that’s why we import our industrial hemp from outside the country. We encourage you to check the legal status of cannabidiol and hemp oil in your country before ordering. We are not liable for knowing the status of cannabidiol (CBD)-rich hemp oil in every country. It is your responsibility to know your country’s laws before ordering with us.


6. Does your Cannabidiol CBD Oil have artificial flavors ?

Most of our products are either unflavored or naturally flavored, but there are some vape products with a mix of natural and artificial flavoring. You can always read the full ingredient list in the product description.

7. What’s the difference between all the vaporizer products ?

Our vapes have different flavors and CBD concentration. In addition, our Tasty Vapes are formulated from hemp oil and have a more earthy flavor and trace amounts of THC. Our Alternate Vapes are formulated from a CBD isolate base, removing the earthy flavor and THC.

8. Which type of Cannabidiol CBD Oil should I use ?

This is completely based on your personal preference and daily CBD goals. Check out our buyer’s guide for help !

9. Are your Cannabidiol CBD Oil products safe ?

Our products have all been tested by a third-party lab. We will never put a product on our website that we believe could be harmful or unsafe. CBD may have a slight sedative effect, even in small servings. Stomach discomfort has been reported after a very large amount was taken all at once.

10. What’s the difference between Cannabidiol CBD Oil and THC ?

Chemically they are both cannabinoid compounds, which makes their molecule look similar but are very different. There are over 85 known cannabinoids. THC and CBD are the two most common, and therefore the most studied. THC is a psychoactive compound, whereas CBD is non-psychoactive.

11. What’s the difference between hemp and marijuana ?

Hemp and marijuana are different varieties of the Cannabis genus of plants, bred for different purposes. Industrial hemp is exclusively produced by Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can refer to the sub-genuses of Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, or Cannabis ruderalis. Industrial hemp is grown to be fibrous and durable, with very long stalks and as few flowering buds as possible. Marijuana strains of cannabis are typically smaller, flimsier and have as many flowering buds as their breeding can allow. Marijuana is bred with the sole purpose of maximizing the concentration of THC, while industrial hemp naturally has trace amounts of THC and fairly high amounts of CBD. Hemp’s chemical profile means that you can’t get ‘high’ from it and it is used to create medicinal remedies, food and oil, as well as other products including rope, bricks, natural polymers, fiber, clothes and many more. Marijuana is used recreationally and medicinally only.

12. What’s the best method of ingesting Cannabidiol CBD Oil ?

There are many methods to take CBD. Some people prefer to ingest it orally as a tincture under the tongue. And some people prefer to vaporize it. Each method has a different level of absorption and everyone’s body is different. When you process anything through the liver, less of it gets into your bloodstream. When you inhale it, that is a more direct route. Always consult with your doctor or naturopath before making a decision what is best for you.

13. Can I add CBD oil to my food rather than sublingually if I don’t like the taste ?

We recommend letting the oil absorb into your mouth rather than swallowing it right away. So to help with the taste, you can make sure to keep it under your tongue or mix it with coconut oil. CBD oil is not water soluble, so it won’t mix with water or juice.

14. How much Cannabidiol CBD Oil do I need ?

Everyone is different. The recommended serving size is enough for most people, but some take 2-3 times that amount or more. Use your own judgement as this is a food product that is oil based and may upset your stomach. The exact properties of CBD are still being researched and the ideal serving size for particular conditions haven’t been discovered yet. As CBD is largely free of side-effects, there is no point where taking “too much” CBD can hurt you, but you should still exercise moderation and use common sense.

Here are some general recommendations for a person weighing about 150 pounds, based on various research studies on CBD oil, as well as our own customers’ feedback and success stories:

1) 15 drops of CBD oil (or the equivalent of ½ ml) 2 times per day, for mild problems such as everyday anxiety, mild aches, mild sleep problems and general health maintenance.

2) 30 drops of CBD oil (or the equivalent of 1 ml) for moderate anxiety, inflammation, frequent aches, insomnia and other health problems.

3) Up to 90 drops of CBD oil (or the equivalent of up to 3 ml) for any other serious health condition including diabetes, cancer, MS and others, always in conjunction with your other medications and after consulting with your doctor.

15. How long do I need to take Cannabidiol CBD Oil ?

That may vary from person to person. Many people find that they can gradually start reducing the amount of CBD needed after they’ve built it up in their system. As a supplement we recommend taking at least a couple milligrams daily, however that’s completely your choice depending on your goals.

16. How quickly does Cannabidiol CBD Oil work ?

Everyone is different, and there are really no uniform results as this is for your health and well-being. It make take some a few days to a week before seeing results  or feeling any effect, while other may have immediate results. In addition, some people do not feel anything from taking the products while others say they can feel a very subtle calming effect. Like any natural supplement, herbal, botanical, or traditional medicine – results will vary.

17. Are Cannabidiol CBD Oil products safe ?

Our products have all been tested by a third-party lab. We will never put a product on our website that we believe could be harmful or unsafe. You can not overdose Cannabidiol (CBD). The worse thing that may happen is possible over relaxation and tiredness.

18. Is there THC in your Cannabidiol CBD Oil products ?

Our products contain very little THC, if any. The legal maximum is less than 0.3%.

19. Will I fail a drug test if I’m taking Cannabidiol CBD Oil ?

We can not guarantee any specific results for a drug test. There’s only trace amounts of THC in our products, however the compound may still be present. Also, some drug tests may search for all cannabinoids, including CBD, which is active in our products.

20. Will Cannabidiol CBD Oil cure me, and when ?

We cannot guarantee anything and do not make any health claims about cannabidiol’s efficacy. This goes beyond our authority and our expertise and is best left to the experts who are conducting research on CBD’s efficacy as we speak. What we can tell you is that on a daily basis, we are hearing incredible stories from our customers about how CBD transformed their lives. Some people are verifying what scientists have already proven about CBD’s health benefits against anxiety and inflammation, while others share stories about success with ailments that scientists haven’t yet produced conclusive evidence about regarding CBD’s efficacy. Therefore, as the potential benefits of CBD are not yet fully understood and can vary greatly between individuals, it’s impossible for anyone to tell for sure when, how and if CBD will cure you. At this time the best we can do is steer you towards informative articles and studies on sites like ProjectCBD.org & PubMed to help you learn about that side of CBD. Always consult your doctor about your condition. It’s best to use CBD in conjunction with your regular medication to maximize results, rather than pick one over the other.

21. Who can take Cannabidiol CBD Oil ?

As this is a food based product, there is no restriction on who can take this unless there are other concerns, medications or other health related reasons. We always recommend you consult with a medical professional.

22. Is Cannabidiol CBD Oil drug ?

All of our hemp products are considered food or supplements.

23. Can I drive after taking Cannabidiol CBD Oil ?

There’s no necessary warning against driving, but depending on how much CBD you take, it may make you tired. We recommend learning how your body reacts to CBD first.
