About Hemp-derived CBD oil
1. What is the Hemp Extract in your products?
Our CBD isolate is extracted from the hemp plant grown in the USA and lab tested to verify no traces of THC. CBD is short for Cannabidiol, a chemical compound found in the cannabis (hemp) plant. CBD is the second most prevalent compound after THC, but unlike the latter, it does not contain any psychoactive properties.
2. Will CBD oil get me high?
No. CBD does not contain any psychoactive properties.
3. Does CBD show up on a drug test?
Pure CBD oil (Isolates) contain no trace of THC. THC is the substance drug tests search for on blood/urine samples. When using pure CBD isolate, there is no chance that it will show up on a drug test.
4. How does CBD work?
CBD works by attaching to certain receptors within the human body. Our body already creates its own cannabinoids which are part of the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is involved in regulating a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain and pleasure sensation, immune system, mood, and memory. [Source]
Additionally, because cannabinoid receptors are located all throughout the skin, CBD has the capability of interacting with those receptors to encourage homeostasis and healing. Studies show that CBD can help treat an array of skin conditions. Eczema has been shown to improve after treatment with hemp oil. Furthermore, CBD can adjust the output of oils in the skin and hair, and inhibit skin cells’ lipid production, making it effective for preventing acne. A 2013 study published in the British Journal of Pharmacology found that CBD controls cell proliferation and differentiation, indicating it can be used in treatment efforts for skin diseases like allergies or cancer.
5. What are the benefits of using CBD topically (lotion, oils)?
Topical CBD is absorbed by skin via its numerous cannabinoid receptors. Unlike other CBD absorption methods, applying CBD directly to the affected areas can yield faster targeted results. In addition, CBD oil and CBD lotions promote an overall healthier skin by reducing the signs of aging, lowering inflammation (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30993303), and reducing the onset of acne by modulating the skin’s oil production (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4151231/).
The healing compounds and other hemp-derived nutrients in CBD topicals are almost immediately absorbed through your skin, allowing them to target affected areas for quicker and more focused results. CBD topicals should be applied right to troubled areas so that the CBD oil can work directly where it’s needed most. Ingesting CBD products orally causes CBD and other compounds to enter the blood stream, which elicits full-body effects and takes two or more hours before those effects are experienced.
6. Are they any side effects of using CBD?
CBD is a natural compound with great benefits and mild side effects. When ingested, CBD oils can cause fatigue, diarrhea, and appetite changes. However, these side effects are largely for people who ingest CBD, not for those who apply it topically.
7. Is CBD legal?
CBD in the United States is legal under very specific conditions. Each state has its own specific laws about CBD. Generally, hemp-derived CBD oil is legal as long as it contains <0.3% of THC. However, marijuana-derived CBD oil statutes vary greatly depending on the state.
8. How do you use a CBD oil roll-on?
Apply a generous amount to pulse, temples, upper chest area, and soles of the feet.
9. What is the difference between Cannabis and Hemp?
Both Cannabis and Hemp plants produce large amounts of CBD. The main difference between them is the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that they produce. The hemp plant has a lower concentration of THC (<0.3%) whereas the cannabis plant has a higher concentration of THC (>5%~35%<) (Source).
