Frequently Asked Questions

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the non-psychoactive, or non-intoxicating, cannabinoid found in the cannabis and Hemp plant. The molecule is the same in both plants as both plants originate from Cannabis Sativa L. CBD doesn’t provide the “high” that users typically associate to cannabis, which means you will not feel a buzz. CBD is currently being used to treat a wide variety of conditions such as: anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, chronic pain, cancer, Crohn’s, diabetes, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, depression, inflammation, epilepsy, and many more each day. Many CBD studies are showing an array of medical benefits, largely in part to the crucial role CBD and hemp-derived compounds have on our body’s Endocannabinoid System (Yes your body regulates cannabinoids for daily health and healing, isn’t that neat)

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a regulatory network in our body is a recently discovered network of naturally occurring cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptor sites. The system regulates compounds in our bodies the same way that it regulates cannabinoids from cannabis, involving a number of physiological processes such as mood, pain, memory, and appetite.

CBD binds to the CBD1 and CB2 receptors, as well as several independent pathways that may affect our neurotransmitters! Research is increasing around this topic as the reuptake and binding of these neurotransmitters is what several prescription drugs on the market do for mental health (imagine being able to help your body do this naturally with CBD!)

Simple Answer: No, CBD will absolutely NOT get you high.

CBD affects the body different than THC, so there will be ZERO psychoactive effect.

CBD is an excellent solution for those looking for natural remedies, but do not prefer the psychoactive effect of THC for any which reason. If you or a loved one has always stayed away from Cannabis because you don’t like the idea of being HIGH, well CBD offers the solution.

ZERO THC. ZERO THC. ZERO THC.

We ensure there are no amounts of THC in our final products, which is always lab tested by a third party to confirm. Unlike THC, CBD does not show up on standard drug tests for marijuana.

CBD is a great product to take when routine drug testing is required for employment or legal reasons.

Ever heard of someone being “Addicted to CBD?” Nope! CBD is completely safe and non-addictive.

Personally, our team is addicted to CBD and have all experienced benefits from it. We are addicted to constantly feeling relief from natural plants and bringing more people into the CBD Journey.

The Question we insist you ask yourself is: WHAT DO YOU NOT FEEL?

Most people ask what they will feel when consuming THC, alcohol, or other substances, but with CBD we believe it’s what you don’t feel that makes a difference.

Start your CBD journey for a few days, trying CBD at different times during the day if you’d like, and reflect on those days. Ask yourself “What didn’t I feel?” Maybe you didn’t feel pain you normally feel, maybe your mood improved when normally irritated, maybe you were less anxious.

As with dosing, there is no best product or best answer for everyone. It all comes down to what you’re looking to achieve or what you’re looking Not To Feel

  • Capsules(edibles): Onset: 15minutes-2 hours. Duration: Roughly 4-6 hours
  • Tinctures: Onset: 15-20minutes Duration: 2-3 hours for frequent users, 3-4 for regular users
  • Gummies: Onset: 15-30 Duration: m2-4 hours
  • Topicals: Onset:5minutes - 2 hours Duration: 8-12 hours
  • Vaping: Onset: 1-5 minutes Duration: 1-3 hours

We often hear: “I have arthritis or a skin condition, shouldn’t I just being using CBD Topicals?”

Simple Answer: No

CBD Topicals are providing relief for several reported conditions like arthritis, eczema, psoriasis, shingles, and sun burns. For many of these conditions there are underlying causes like Inflammation that can and should be treated daily with consumable products like capsules and tinctures.

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), like Coconut Oil, are fatty acid chains with 6-12 carbon atoms. We use this as a carrier oil for CBD as it has additional added benefits like helping the body absorb fat-soluble nutrients and vitamins, use as energy, and promotes brain, heart, and digestive health

These terms are very common when dealing with ANY prescription medication and are often of high concern for most patients. When it comes to CBD we believe there are no undesirable effects or adverse reactions. However, when introducing MCT oil to the diet for the first time or in high doses there may be some side effects associated to this; not CBD.

Reported Side Effects from MCT OIL:
Dizziness – Reported when taken on an empty stomach, subsides within a few days of use.
Nausea – Reported when taken on an empty stomach, subsides within a few days of use. Try taking with food to see if it helps.

Melatonin Disclaimer:

MELATONIN SIDE EFFECTS Those who are taking antidepressants such as Prozac are cautioned from taking this product, as Melatonin is known to have adverse reactions with drugs such as Prozac and Nardil, which can cause heart attack or stroke. Preliminary symptoms include shaking, sweating, general confusion, anxiety, high blood pressure diarrhea and convulsions. Melatonin should not be taken at any other point in the day aside from the moment before sleep. Taking any amount greater than .5 mg may result in strong dreams and feelings of fatigue even after sleep. Those who have been prescribed and are taking anti-seizure medications or any type of medication which affects blood flow (like diabetes medicine and hormone replacements) should avoid this product. Women who are nursing or pregnant should also avoid this supplement.

CBD itself is a very safe substance, but patients taking other prescription medications should always check with their physician about drug interactions, especially when experimenting with high doses. What’s Important To Know?? CYTOCHROME P450 ENZYME (CYP450) Cytochrome P450 metabolizes over half of standard pharmaceuticals and is an inhibitor of CYP450., the most common of which are blood thinners and many epileptic drugs.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU?
Taking CBD regularly may increase the levels of pharmaceutical levels in your blood.

IS THIS GOOD OR BAD?
We think this is a good thing and have several reports from patients that have been able to cut their pharmaceutical medication in HALF (while taking CBD) and still have the same amount present in their blood stream! We would all like to take less to achieve more right? Just be aware of medications that travel the CYP450 and everything is alright!

Different CBD products can and should be used together for optimal effects. Ex) A capsule can be taken every morning and a tincture used thorough the day

CBD products may also be mixed with other foods, if desired. Remember, our products already contain coconut oil so they may not mix perfectly with all liquids. You will still receive the same amount of CBD even if the oil doesn’t mix into your liquid of choice. There’s nothing wrong with consuming a tincture THEN your food.

No. You are not allergic to CBD. Standard food allergies are a common concern. Our products contain coconut oil, so if you do have a nut allergy our capsules and tinctures may not be the best products for you. We have not seen any reports of allergic reactions from any other advertised product or ingredient that we use as we are careful to source natural and high quality ingredients that aren’t common allergens.

Mainly with capsules, if the product you received seems to be leaking it is UNLIKELY that it actually is. When filling capsules, even the smallest amount of MCT oil will spread to any capsule it touches. In addition, with our capsules being hand-filled the slightest amount over the threshold causes the capsule to push that extra oil out. We apologize for the inconvenience and will do our best to not make a mess
