CBD is a very safe substance, but patients taking other medications should check with their doctor about drug interactions, which are more likely when consuming high doses of single-molecule CBD products. At sufficient dosages, CBD will temporarily deactivate cytochrome P450 enzymes, thereby altering how we metabolize a wide range of compounds, including THC. Cytochrome P450 enzymes metabolize more than 60 percent of Big Pharma meds. CBD is a more potent inhibitor of cytochrome P450 than the grapefruit compound Bergapten, so ask your doctor if grapefruit interacts with your medication. If grapefruit does, then CBD probably does, too. Patients on a CBD-rich treatment regimen should monitor changes in blood levels of prescription medications and, if need be, adjust dosage.
This really depends on which product you are using, how you use it and how your body adapts to it. We recommend starting with 1 drop per serving, once or twice a day and see if this dosage works for you. If it’s the first time you’re using a hemp oil supplement, we encourage you to discuss with your healthcare practitioner if you have specific questions.
An effective dosage can range from as little as a few milligrams of CBD-enriched cannabis oil to a gram or more. Begin with a small dose of high CBD oil especially if you have little or no experience with cannabis. Take a few small doses over the course of the day rather than one big dose. Use the same dose and ratio for several days. Observe the effects and if necessary adjust the ratio or amount. Don’t overdo it. Cannabis compounds have biphasic properties, which means that low and high doses of the same substance can produce opposite effects. Small doses of cannabis tend to stimulate; large doses sedate. Too much THC, while not lethal, can amplify anxiety and mood disorders. CBD has no known adverse side effects, but an excessive amount of CBD could be less effective therapeutically than a moderate dose. “Less is more” is often the case with respect to cannabis therapy.
Yes, our products are gluten free.
Yes, we have very high standards regarding the quality, purity, and potency of the CBD we produce. We use HPLC by outside lab to measure CBD levels, to the milligram, in every batch.
Hemp is considered by many to be generally safe. We’ve never seen or heard of any significant or negative side effects in our years in the industry. That said, we can’t rule them out. Please consult with your physician before using any dietary supplement including Hemp extract supplements.
Whether you agree with it in principle or not, testing for illicit drug use is a reality for many workers in the United States. Drug testing is mandatory for federal employees, and although it isn’t required in the private sector, more employers are implementing some kind(s) of drug screening.
When drug testing is mandated, employers almost always follow the SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) guidelines because it puts them on solid legal ground. Typically, there is an overlap between testing guidelines and accepted cutoff levels for drugs and drug metabolites in confirmatory testing and screening.
Because THC is widely recognized as being responsible for marijuana’s psychoactivity and euphoria, a routine urine drug screen for marijuana use consists of an immunoassay with antibodies that are made to detect it, and its main metabolite, 11-nor-delta9-caboxy-THC (THC-COOH). SAMHSA has set the cutoff level for a positive urine screen in the immunoassay at 50 ng/mL. When the immunoassay screen is positive at the > 50 ng/mL level, a confirmatory GC/MS (Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry) test is performed to verify the positive urine screen. The confirmatory GC/MS has a cutoff level of 15 ng/mL and is specific only to the 11-nor-THCCOOH metabolite.
Fortunately, the urine drug screen for THC-COOH is known to have very little cross-reactivity to other cannabinoids that are not psychoactive, such as CBD (cannabidiol), CBG (cannabigerol), CBN (cannabinol), and others. This is good news for “normal” consumers of CBD/hemp oil.
That said, individuals using unusually large doses of a cannabinoid-rich hemp oil product (above 1000-2000 mg of hemp oil daily) could theoretically test positive during the initial urinary screen. Although very rare, the urine screen in these cases would likely represent a “false positive” due to other non-THC metabolites or compounds, which may cross-react with the immunoassay. When this is the case, the confirmatory GC/MS test would be negative, since CBD and other cannabinoids will not be detected by the more accurate (and specific) GC/MS screen.
Keep in mind that most of the high-quality, reliable CBD-rich hemp oil products contain much less THC than marijuana. For example, hemp contains anywhere from 1/10th to 1/300th of the THC concentration found in marijuana. An individual consuming 1000-2000 mg per day of hemp oil would thus consume approximately 3-6 mg of THC. This exceedingly high dose may result in detection of positive urine screen in up to 11% to 23% of assays.
We produce CBD oil that is sold as a dietary supplement, so we’re not making any medical claims. However we do encourage you to research this topic yourself, as there are trustworthy websites where you’ll find studies on the effects and benefits of cannabidiol in various conditions. We may refer to such studies here, but only to inform you about them.
CBD Versus THC
All natural, premium CBD Rich Hemp Oil is derived from specially bred Industrial Hemp plants with a high CBD content and low THC content. Hence you can achieve the medical benefits from CBD without getting high.
Our CBD oil products are up to 98% CBD concentration as per our lab tests. We strive to ensure that our customers receive the concentrated CBD at the percentages listed on our products pages. In reality every batch of CBD oil will vary in concentration. This variance is plus or minus 10% for some of our products. So we do not sell the oil if it falls outside of these limits as we want our customers to always receive strong CBD supplements.
It contains all the synergistic Cannabinoids, Essential Oils, Terpenoids and other compounds found in the original Hemp plant. We offer the finest, most natural and consistent High Grade CBD Rich Hemp Oil with no fillers, preservatives or additives.
No. Many people are under the impression that the only way to acquire hemp extracts and CBD for themselves or a loved one is to move to Colorado or another cannabis-friendly state. Many major news outlets are misinformed and are unfortunately spreading the idea that you can only get CBD oil in the states where medical marijuana has been legalized. This is simply not the case though. Because our extracts comes from hemp instead of marijuana, we can and do ship nationwide, and no medical marijuana card is needed. There are some exceptions, like with South Dakota, where we can’t sell our products due to state legislation.
Please speak with your Doctor.
CBD oil can be applied topically or safely ingested. For relaxation, inflammation-reduction or other benefits, many users will use the oil for cooking, add it to smoothies, or simply hold a few drops underneath the tongue for a few seconds.
High CBD-containing topicals can be directly applied to affected areas of the body for soothing relief. Transdermal patches will deliver the healing cannabinoids directly into the bloodstream for direct healing of the affected area.
In accordance with federal regulations we cannot make health claims regarding our dietary supplement products. We can only recommend our products for general wellness.
There should be none as long as the suggested serving allotments are followed. If too much hemp extract oil is given to a dog, then temporary drowsiness may occur. Additionally, too much oil, not hemp extract, can cause dogs to have an upset stomach and potential diarrhea. Stick to the recommended serving sizes to ensure a happy pup!
Our extract bottles come with an included dropper for easy use. Keeping the dropper clean and void of any bacteria is essential for your health and the preservation of the hemp extract. If you choose to use the dropper for oral application of our hemp extracts, take special care to keep it from coming in contact with the interior and exterior of your mouth. It is recommended that you clean the dropper after each use, especially if it comes in contact with your mouth, with an alcohol swab to ensure proper storage of the product.
Your CBD product does not need to be refrigerated, but if you prefer to take it when it chilled you can store it in the fridge without that impacting the product. We recommend storying your CBD anywhere that the bottle isn’t exposed to constant light and or heat
No. Our products are classified as hemp and are thus legally available to anyone who wishes to purchase them.
In contrast to marijuana, federal law does allow for the cultivation, processing and marketing of hemp and hemp products, which would include cannabinoids derived from industrial hemp, under the conditions set forth in Section 7606 of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (aka the “Farm Bill”). Passed by Congress and signed into law by the President in 2014, the Farm Bill permits the growth and cultivation of industrial hemp in states where hemp is legal to grow.
The low amounts of THC in agricultural hemp make it favorable for those who like to experience the benefits without the euphoria or psycho-toxity that is associated with medical cannabis. Plus our CBD products are made in facilities that assure safety, quality, and efficacy-offering consistent products you can rely on.
Due to DSHEA guidelines, we cannot specifically state what conditions CBD may affect. We encourage you to do your own research, consult with doctors, and use PUBMED.gov as a resource as newly published research is coming out day by day. We always insist you speak to your doctor before starting any new nutritional and dietary supplement regimen.
Sometimes called the whole plant or entourage effect, cannabis offers a complex biochemical matrix of many of its constituents working together. There is a lot of wrong info about the actual composition of some CBD-rich hemp products, however it actually contains many bioactive compounds that interplay top optimize health and wellness.
No, it cannot. CBD is a Phyto cannabinoid that is non-psychotoxic ( it does not result in feelings of euphoria) and has remarkable safety profile.
I heard agricultural hemp isn’t as potent. Is this true?
No. CBD is CBD, it does not matter where it is sourced. The human body does not recognize whether a CBD compound was sourced from agricultural hemp or medical cannabis flower- all of the body’s biologic activity, interaction with various enzymes, and receptors specific to CBD remain the same.
Discovered in 1992, the endocannabinoid system( ECS) refers to endocannabiniods, the enzymes that regulate their production and degradation, and their receptors. Endocannabinoids are messengers, isolated from the brain and peripheral tissues that communicate via cannabinoid receptors.
Cannabinoids are the primary chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant and there are more than 85 identified cannabinoids. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most well known cannabinoid produced by the cannabis plant, and is the ONLY psychoactive cannabinoid. Of the 85+ non-psychoactive cannabinoids, Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most widely known.
CBD Rich Hemp Oil is an oil extracted from Industrial Hemp plants (stalks and seeds) with a High Grade of Cannabidiol (CBD). The plants used are specifically and uniquely bred to comprise high concentrations of the naturally occurring Cannabinoid, Cannabidiol (CBD). What is CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant with enormous therapeutic potential. Although CBD doesn’t make people feel high like THC does, it’s causing quite a buzz among scientists, health professionals, and medical marijuana patients who are using CBD-rich products to treat a wide range of conditions—chronic pain, cancer, Crohn’s, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, and more. Academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere are currently studying the effects of CBD on these and other ailments. Scientists refer to CBD as a “promiscuous” compound because it confers therapeutic benefits in many different ways while tapping into how we function physiologically and biologically on a deep level. Extensive preclinical research and some clinical studies have shown that CBD has strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral, and neuroprotective qualities. Cannabidiol can change gene expression and remove beta amyloid plaque, the hallmark of Alzheimer’s, from brain cells.
CBD or Cannabidiol is a compound that is extracted from cannabis or hemp-based sources. CBD comes from the cannabinoid family as does THC, the main difference being that while CBD also offers anti-inflammatory, neuroprotectant and analgesic benefits, it does not produce the psychoactive effects of THC.
