Frequently Asked Questions:
1) What Dose do you recommend?
CBD is new to the market. The Farm Bill recently signed in December of 2018, passed into law taking CBD from a Schedule 1 to a Schedule 6 which allows for interstate commerce and giving our U.S. farmers crop insurance. As every day passes, we are finding out more and more about all the molecules in the Hemp plant and its benefits.
First, I am not a doctor, and I recommend speaking with your physician before use of any of these products, especially if you are currently taking other medications this may interact with. Your physician will have the best advice as to your specific needs. Studies on long-term use are still underway given how new this product is to the market.
At this point in time, this is what I have to say, given what I have seen through my testimony, the testimonies of friends, family and CBD news articles.
Start with a low dose of 10mg depending on how you feel. I personally take a 25mg Turmeric CBD capsule in the morning, and if needed, I may take one in the afternoon for degenerative disc disease. I have found this to be an effective for my level of pain. I have talked to a lot of individuals who depend on CBD, and their dosing ranges from 10mg to 2000mg per day. These people had a range of ailments from seizures, arthritis, and graves disease, to name a few. Their positive testimonies and my own experience with CBD motivates me to keep working hard and to get out the message that this can be an alternative for people and pets to get the relief they need.
I have also talked to several people that use CBD on their pets. I also use it on my 7 year old boxer. The benefits are very clear and my dog actually likes taking her tincture! If your pet isn’t fond of the tincture, using the 1 gram isolate powder product is another alternative that you can sprinkle on a piece of cheese.
Based on this information as of today, I recommend starting at a low dose, and working your way up as needed.
2) What does Full Spectrum Mean?
Full spectrum CBD means the product contains other cannabinoids beyond CBD, along with other elements of the cannabis or hemp plant, including natural terpenes, vitamins, flavonoids, fatty acids, protein, and less than the .3% THC allowed by law.
3) What is CBD Isolate?
CBD Isolate is a better alternative to Full Spectrum for people who are sensitive to THC. CBD Isolate contains only CBD in its purest form. Our lab isolates the CBD molecule from everything else in the plant. CBD isolate contains absolutely no identifiable amount of THC, the chemical found in cannabis that creates that euphoric high. This process also removes all other compounds like terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, and proteins, which leaves us with 100% Pure CBD.
4) What are Terpenes?
Terpenes are the natural aromatic and flavorful component of the Hemp plant essential oils.
5) Is it possible to have ZERO THC?
Yes. The product, itself, can test at 0% THC. The CBD molecule can be extracted out of the hemp plant to its purest form. We utilize three independent testing labs to ensure what we are getting is free of all other components. For people that are highly sensitive to THC, CBD Isolate is a good alternative.
6) Will my urinalysis test show positive?
YES! Standard urine tests will show that you have cannabinoids in your system. These tests are not able to decipher THC from CBD.
7) What is the difference in Hemp and Marijuana?
The Hemp plant has been bred specifically to produce fiber used in clothing, ropes, oils, lotions, supplements and many other uses yet to come. Hemp contains extremely low levels of the psychoactive compound THC. Based on the recent Farm Bill, Hemp can contain no more than .3% THC.
Marijuana or Pot, is another strain of cannabis that has been bred for its medical or psychoactive effects. This plant has much higher levels of THC, which will give you that euphoric high.
Even though these plants look very similar and are from the same family, they have significant differences in what they can do for us.
