Frequently Asked Questions about CBD
What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol, the most prominent naturally-occurring cannabinoid component found in cannabis that comprises up to 40% of the plant. According to the US Government, cannabidiol is “a cannabinoid devoid of psychoactive effect. ” After THC ( -tetrahydrocannabinol), Cannabidiol is by far the most studied natural cannabinoid. According to many researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered.
What is the Endocannabinoid system and how does it help me?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is one of science’s newest and most exciting discoveries. The ECS in your body, regulates relaxation, eating, sleeping, certain inflammation responses and even cognitive function. There are two types of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body (CB1 and CB2), but they are most abundant in the brain and immune system respectively. In a nutshell, your ECS is responsible for making sure your entire body is working optimally.
Can I get high from CBD products?
No. Our CBD comes from industrial cultivated hemp plants—not marijuana—which is why it is legal for us to import and extract the cannabidiol-rich oil and isolate.
Are CBD and THC the same thing?
No, they are different compounds. CBD and THC are both cannabinoids, but THC is the cannabinoid that gets you “high” or “stoned.” Cannabidiol is non-psychoactive, meaning it won’t get you “high.”
Are your CBD products synthetic?
No. Green Remedy CBD is a natural constituent of industrial hemp. An isolate powder is used in the e-liquids to avoid any trace amounts of THC and to allow for much better flavors than those made with oils.
Will it help me with my illness?
Due to FDA regulations, we cannot make claims about whether or not Cannabidiol can help with specific ailments. We do, however, suggest that you conduct your own research.
I’ve never tried CBD. Where should I start?
If you’ve never tried it before, start with a low strength tincture would be a great start. For tougher situations try higher strength CBD tincture; a dropper full under the tongue goes a long way!
Will I fail a drug test if I use CBD?
Drug tests are normally looking for THC, not CBD or any other cannabinoid. If you use CBD that has only a small amount of THC (>.3%), the THC may show up on a drug test. A drug test looking for CBD would not be effective law enforcement tool, knowing that CBD is non-psychoactive and does not cause impairment.
Most workplace drug screens and tests target delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and do not detect cannabidiol (CBD) or other legal natural hemp based compounds. However, studies have shown that using hemp products such as CBD products, hemp foods and oils can, in rare cases, cause positive results when screening urine and blood specimens.
If you are subject to any form of drug testing, we recommend (as does the United States Military) that you do not use our products before consulting with your employer, health care professional, or drug testing company.
