CBD and hemp oil are commonly confused for marijuana. CBD, or cannabidiol, and hemp oil are non-psychoactive and will not induce intoxication. The stigma surrounding CBD and hemp oil is diminishing, but this is still a common misunderstanding. As long as CBD is derived from hemp and under 0.3% THC, it is legal to sell, purchase, and possess in all 50 states.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of 113 cannabinoids that can be extracted from hemp. CBD has no psychoactive effects. It has been praised for its uses treating joint pain, muscle soreness, anxiety, PTSD, multiple sclerosis, sleep disorders, and many more.
Hemp oil is an extract from hemp. Though it does not produce the same effects as CBD, it has been reported to improve mood, concentration, and nerve related discomfort.
CBD oil can be supplemented with THC, however generally it does not contain high amounts of THC. In most states, as long as the THC content of a CBD product is under 0.3% THC, it’s legal. With this THC content, you will not experience any psychoactive effects.
A CBD isolate contains only CBD. A full spectrum CBD will contain additional terpenes and cannabinoids, such as CBG and CBN, which have also shown benefits. We sell both full spectrum and isolate CBD products. THC levels are below legal limits at 0.3%. The illustration below represents The Full Spectrum Wheel (including several cannabinoids) where as CBD only would be considered an Isolate. Each type of CBD has it's own benefits, however there is much to be said about the "Entourage Effect"
The answer to this question largely varies from person to person. We recommend starting with a low milligram dose and increasing to a higher dosage if needed based on condition. For best results, CBD oil should be taken daily, on an empty stomach, and held under the tongue for 30-60 seconds before swallowing. CBD Capsules can be taken daily as well, where as Topicals can be used as needed.
CBD products are safe for animals. Pets are able to process cannabidiol in the same way that humans are. CBD is used to treat many pain disorders in pets including hip dysplasia.
