What is the difference between marijuana and hemp?
Marijuana and hemp are two different varieties of cannabis that come from the same species of plant. In general, CBD is found in both. However, it’s important to note that CBD is typically found in the seeds and stem of marijuana - not in the flowering buds (which is the part that you smoke). The hemp plant is an entirely different strain of cannabis that contains high quantities of CBD throughout (stem, buds, etc), and practically zero traces of THC. If a hemp plant contains more than 0.3% THC, it is then technically a “marijuana” plant. Our CBD-based products come from the industrial hemp plant. Check out this video below!!
Will CBD get me high?
No, CBD will not get you high. THC is the molecule that binds to receptors in our brain and is the one responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana. In fact, CBD is antagonistic to the marijuana high; some research expresses its potential to prevent THC molecules from binding to the brain’s receptors (hence the reason why it’s often used to subdue the ‘paranoia’ effects of super-potent THC strains).
Will Full Spectrum CBD show up on a drug test?
Yes there is a possibility that by taking a full spectrum product you will fail a drug test. This is because Full Spectrum still contains a very small (federally legal= less than .3%) amount of THC. Drug tests do not test for THC levels in the body, just the presence.
How do I know how much CBD to take?
It depends on what you’re using the compound for, and also on how strong the product is. Most people consume between 10-50 mg of CBD per day total. (For reference, 1 mL of a potent oil might contain 50 mg of CBD. Make sure you read the label on your product to ensure a proper serving.) Check out our "dosage" page to read more.
How often/many times a day should I take CBD?
Take suggested dose 1x per day for three days. If you do not feel the desired effects following three days, increase your dose to 20mg for three more days. Continue to adjust drops every three days till desired effect is achieved.
