1. What is CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD is just one of over 85 cannabinoids discovered so far in the cannabis plant. CBD is present in more significant quantities in hemp than marijuana, and because it is non-psychoactive, CBD is widely regarded as the cannabinoid with the most medicinal potential by researchers. CBD interacts with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system to promote homeostasis.
We suggest you find your own research on CBD and cannabinoids from a trusted source to determine if a CBD hemp oil supplement is right for you.
2. What is in CBD hemp oil?
Besides CBD, hemp oil contains various other cannabinoids, Omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids, and over a dozen vitamins and minerals, like iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamins A, B, C, and E, and beta-Carotene, often missing from the average diet. Due to this nutritional content, full-spectrum CBD hemp oil can be a complete daily dietary supplement.
3. Do cannabidiol (CBD) and other natural hemp based constituents show up on a drug test?
Most workplace drug screens and tests target delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and do not detect the presence of cannabidiol (CBD) or other legal natural hemp based constituents. However, studies have shown that eating hemp foods and oils can, in rare cases, cause confirmed positive results when screening urine and blood specimens.
Accordingly, if you are subject to any form of drug testing, we recommend (as does the United States Military) that you do not ingest our products before consulting with your healthcare, drug screening/testing company, or employer.
For customers looking to avoid THC, there are now products that are completely THC Free.

Check product quality and safety information.
Verify Triple Lab Test™ to ensure accuracy in potency information and that it has been checked for contaminants like pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, and mold.
CO2 is a much healthier choice than other potential solvents and is “generally regarded as safe” (GRAS) by the FDA. So, make sure C02 extraction process has been used in the product of your choice, manufacturing.
5. Are CBD products legal?
In the U.S., CBD derived from hemp is considered a dietary supplement and is legal to purchase and ship to all 50 states. When CBD hemp oil is an imported hemp product and contains less than 0.3% THC by weight, it is exempt from the Federal Controlled Substances Act prohibition on marijuana.
Hemp oil laws become less uniform on a global level. If you’d like to know if CBD hemp oil is legal in your country, do a little research or check with your local authorities.
6. Will CBD products get me high?
Some will. Generally with high-THC / low-CBD hemp oil. Understand that CBD itself is non-psychoactive, and THC, marijuana’s psychoactive compound, when only present in trace amounts, it’s not nearly enough to cause the high associated with marijuana.
For those looking to avoid even these trace amounts of THC, some companies offer a completely THC-free products to their customers.
7. Do I need a medical card to buy CBD products?
No. Not when you buy CBD strictly labeled as a supplement. However, before beginning any new supplement routine, it is suggested you consult your doctor.
8. How much CBD should I take?
This is a difficult question to answer because CBD consumers find differences in their personally optimal serving size. We suggest you start low and ease your way up to larger servings if desired until you find the daily CBD levels that work best for you.
If you have questions about which CBD product may fit your needs, do some research. Use number “4” on this list for reference, before making any CBD purchase.
9. Can CBD products cure/treat my…?
When CBD hemp oil products are categorized as dietary supplements in the United States, they comply with the FDA’s DSHEA guidelines and cannot endorse any specific medical benefits of CBD or hemp oil.
We encourage you to browse the thousands of reputable studies regarding CBD published online and talk with your doctor to see if a CBD supplement is right for you.
10. Which CBD hemp oil product is right for me?
This will depend on your own personal preference, desired CBD quantities, and preferred means of application. Typically, CBD products fall under one of two categories: topicals, which are applied externally, or dietary supplements, which are taken internally.
There are many products featuring different flavors, potencies, and consistencies from which to choose. .
11. Where does legal hemp come from?
Legal hemp comes from family farms outside of the US, primarily from Europe where hemp has been cultivated for generations. There are roughly 750 families nestled in the idyllic European countryside alone, that cultivate the hemp for export.
Legal hemp comes from Europe because domestic cultivation of hemp for commercial use in the U.S. is illegal, but hemp oil imported from outside the country is legal for use in in the US.
12. What’s the difference between CBD hemp oil and other hemp products I buy at the grocery store?
Hemp products sold in grocery and health food stores are most often created using hemp seed oil, which can contain only trace amounts of CBD. While it has been noted that hemp seed oil can be a great source of nutrition, its marginal quantity of CBD per weight makes it unfeasible as a CBD supplement.
CBD hemp oil, however, is extracted from the stalk of specifically selected hemp cultivars, offering higher percentages of CBD by weight and additional nutritional benefits from the contents of our oil.
13. Why does CBD hemp oil come in a syringe?
For easier measuring of servings and more convenient dispensing. There is no needle, and pure hemp oil is typically applied to a spoon or butter knife and taken under the tongue. You don’t inject CBD hemp oil; you consume it orally.
