FAQ

Will CBD show up on my drug test?

Employers test for a chemical called THC because it is not currently legal in many states. Our products are made with purified CBD which means it is 99.96% pure CBD. A tiny portion of the remaining 0.04% is THC, but it is well below the legal limit of 0.3% which means it should not be detectable on most drug tests. We have had multiple individuals take 3rd party drug tests after using our products and no one has tested positive.

In the event of a positive test (which is highly unlikely), you can ask the testing company for a break down of the chemicals you tested positive on, meaning you can make them test specifically for THC. This is a legal requirement, as CBD is a perfectly legal ingredient.

Will CBD get me high?

No. THC is the molecule in marijuana that binds to the CB1 receptors in your brain to give you the “high” feeling. CBD doesn’t bind to your receptors in the same way and cannot make you high regardless of the dose. In fact, CBD directly interferes with THC, and is often used to effectively kill the high in patients like those taking a CBD/THC combination for seizures.

How does CBD work?

CBD works by binding to certain receptors in your body that are part of the endocannabinoid system. The currently accepted science is that CBD binds to the CB2 receptor sites located throughout your body. The efficacy is directly related to the quality of the ingredients, how carefully the product is formulated, and what other compounds are there to interfere with CBD’s binding process.

Can I overdose on CBD?

Based on what we know right now, no you can’t. There are clinical studies showing that people taking up to 2,000 mg a day have no negative side effects (citation).

Why don’t you use broad-spectrum extracts?

There are over 400 compounds identified from the hemp plant and while all of them are useful to the plant, not all of them are useful to humans. Many of these compounds are actually pesticides that the plant produces to discourage small critters from eating the plant. As you can imagine, most pesticides are not actually good for human consumption. Moreover, some of these compounds actually compete with CBD and diminish its effectiveness. We have identified the few selected compounds from the hemp plant that work in harmony with CBD, and eliminated of all the pesticides that can interfere with CBD’s powerful soothing effects. We have found this Selected Spectrum® approach eases pain more effectively and for 2-3 times as long as any broad-spectrum product. However, we do offer full spectrum tinctures in addition to our Selected Spectrum® products.

What about the entourage effect?

Since we use a select spectrum of compounds from the hemp plant, we do still get the benefits of the “entourage effect” without the burden of interfering pesticides produced by the plant for its defense.

How often should I use the topical?

As often as you need! Our customers report between 12 and 36 hours of relief, but if you need it more often, you can use it more often.

How much tincture should I take?

The dosing is going to be specific to each individual so it is going to take some experimentation on your part to find the best dose for you. Most people take somewhere between .25-1 ml (10 mg to 50 mg) per day. Some people need more and some need less. We recommend starting with a smaller dose (0.25 mL; 12.5 mg) and gradually increasing the dose if you feel that you are not getting the desired results.
