Pure CBD. Organic Cannabidiol Products
  • Will CBD get me high?
    NOPE! CBD has not been known in any clinical studies to cause euphoria, elation, or the feeling of being “high” (it does not possess any psychotic effect in humans unlike THC). In fact there are even indications that CBD mitigates unwanted side effects caused by THC including psychotic effect (High). Therefore you’ve got no worries when you use our CBD based product(s).
  • Does CBD cause adverse side effects?
    There are no reported adverse effects associated with Pure CBD usage. CBD is safe in humans. In fact several studies suggest that CBD is non-toxic in non-transformed cells and doesn’t induce changes on your food intake, neither does it affect physiological parameters such as heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature. It also does not alter psychological functions.
  • What dose of CBD is recommended?
    Going by the popular saying “start low and go slow.” Since everybody is unique, CBD remains highly individualized and relies greatly on the titration extent. We advise you should probably start with the lowest effective dose and if the effect is ineffective you can gradually increase or titrate up CBD until the required result is reached. It is worthy to note that chronic use and high doses up to 1500mg/day of CBD are reportedly well tolerated in humans.
  • Who should use CBD?
    CBD is a suited medication for all patients especially if there is little or no trace of THC in it.
  • Is there risk of CBD dependence or abuse?
    At present, there are no case reports on any abuse or dependence associated with the use of pure CBD, especially one derived from Cannabis sativa L.
  • Does CBD pose acute toxicity?
    No because CBD appears to be generally non-toxic as there has been no recorded deaths directly attributable to acute toxicity of CBD usage in humans. Even doses of 500-1000mg or more of CBD appear to have been safely tolerated.
  • Are there variability risks due to composition inconsistencies with CBD?
    There is strong incentive for state regulation of CBD supply, and our supply of CBD has passed through rigorous funnels to eliminate potential composition inconsistencies, thus our supply of CBD is strictly regulated starting with consistent growth conditions to eliminate potential toxics.
  • Are there long term effects to using CBD or Cannabis?
    An obvious fear in the States regarding cannabinoid usage is that long term health effects may impact on users. However, there are no clinical trials that have reported any long term effects of CBD usage. It’s been shown that THC is likely to be the main driver of any potential long term negative effects. It is important to note that most evidence of long term damage from cannabis comes from recreational and not medicinal uses of Cannabis. To date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any Public Health problem associated with the use of pure CBD
  • Which is better THC or CBD?
    There may not be a direct answer to this until these two compounds are evaluated! CBD and THC very powerful. However, unlike CBD, THC is psychoactive (cause “high”) and causes anxiety and rapid heartbeat. CBD on the other hand, lessen THC’s psychoactivity and mitigate adverse effects caused by THC such as anxiety and increased blood pressure associated with rapid heartbeat. It has also been reported that CBD can help broaden the range of conditions treatable with cannabis such as liver, cardiovascular and various metabolic disorders. Therefore, CBD IS BETTER.
  • What is the legal age for CBD usage?
    For safety and efficacy, CBD should not be used by adolescents or children under 18 years of age. Ask a medical professional if under the age of 18.
  • Does CBD have any known drug interactions?
    There are no studies showing the that there are any drug interactions using CBD and other drugs. However it is wise to consult with your doctor if one is making dietary changes.
  • Is CBD from hemp the same as CBD from marijuana?
    CBD is CBD, regardless of whether it comes from marijuana or hemp. The body can not differentiate between the CBD from hemp or marijuana. It’s important to keep in mind that hemp and marijuana are simply different varieties of the same plant, cannabis sativa L. The defining characteristic that makes hemp different from marijuana is its extremely low volume of THC which allows for higher CBD intake without the effects of THC.
  • What are the potential medical benefits of CBD?
    According to a 2013 review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, studies have found CBD to possess the following medical properties: Anti-emetic. Reduces nausea and vomiting. Anti-convulsant Suppresses seizure activity. Anti-psychotic. Combats psychosis disorders. Anti-inflammatory Combats inflammatory disorders Anti-oxidant. Combats neurodegenerative disorder Anti-tumoral/Anti-cancer Combats tumor and cancer cells Anxiolytic/Anti-depressant Combats anxiety and depression
  • Is CBD legal?
    Yes. CBD products from “hemp” strains are legal in all 50 states. CBD Oil/Hemp Oil and other hemp products are considered to be food-based. As such, there are no restrictions on the production, sale and consumption of hemp oil in the United States. CBD Oil/Hemp Oil is legal in most countries in the world as long is it contains low or in some countries untraceable concentrations of the molecule THC. In the United States, however, the legality of CBD may depend on where it was sourced. There are two types of CBD products available: products derived from “hemp” and products derived from “marijuana”. The CBD found in both of these plants is the same, it’s the legal definition that is not.
  • Does CBD have THC?
    No. According to Quest Diagnostics, “If the product contains only CBD and has had the THC removed, then an individual being tested would not be expected to test positive for marijuana or marijuana metabolite.” But the hitch is that some CBD products may contain minute amounts of THC, thus creating what is called the entourage effect. The entourage effect describes a synergy between cannabinoids that enhances their effects. In essence, if CBD is used in high doses and/or on a regular basis, it is possible that traces of THC metabolites could show up on a drug test. This is unlikely, but still possible.
  • Is CBD safe?
    Yes. All our hemp crops are grown free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides, so our quality starts with our hemp plants.
  • Is there any drug interaction with CBD?
    There is no known drug interaction with intra-nasal CBD use.
