Frequently Asked Questions

How do I take CBD and at what dosage?

Before adding CBD oil to your regimen, as with any supplement, be sure to check with your doctor to make sure that it’s a good choice for you. This is especially true if you are taking certain anti-seizure medications. CBD oil can be consumed in a myriad of ways: tinctures, oil vaping, capsules, sublinguals, or even topicals. When taking CBD, always follow the instructions on the package of the product you have purchased.

Can you get high from CBD oil

No. THC is the psProduction of CBD oil is not the same all over the world – or even all over the country – due to regulations and legislative hurdles with regards to the industrial hemp that is needed to produce full-spectrum CBD oil. Industrial hemp is legal throughout the European Union, and organic varieties are fairly plentiful. Today, CBD oil sourced from Europe, especially Denmark and Germany, which have strict regulatory standards, is some of the best on the marketplace.

What is the difference between CBD oil and 100% hemp oil?

Hemp oil is the name given any oil derived from the hemp plant; CBD oil is an oil containing high amounts of CBD, made from either the hemp or the cannabis plant. While much CBD oil is also hemp oil, not all hemp oil is CBD oil; hemp oil made from the seeds of the hemp plant will not contain active CBD.

Is CBD oil legal?

Yes! Most CBD oil is produced from industrial hemp, the same plant used to make hemp textiles and hemp seeds. This plant contains trace amounts of psychoactive THC – never enough to make you remotely high.

How much do CBD oil products cost?

What should I look for when choosing a CBD oil? Which CBD products/companies I should avoid?

Because CBD oil is not yet heavily regulated by the government, it’s easy for companies to sell products that contain little to no CBD… or that contain nasty little extras you’d rather avoid (like heavy metals or pesticides). To make sure that you’re opting for only the best CBD oil, choose products made with organic hemp. Organic hemp often comes from Europe, though recent changes in regulations have made it legal to grow organic hemp in the United States as well.

Also be sure you’re opting for CBD oils extracted with CO2 rather than butane, and don’t be afraid to ask for lab tests from the company if they are not already prominently displayed on the company website: any company producing its CBD oil properly will be happy to provide this information, which indicates not only how much CBD is present in a given oil but also the presence of any pesticides or heavy metals. Many companies will even do batch testing, so you can see the results from the exact batch of CBD oil you have purchased.
