Updated: Oct 27, 2019

QUESTIONS EVERYONE'S TO EMBARRASSED TO ASK.

Let's start with the cannabinoid CBD.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a relatively new thing to a lot of the public and something that's still has people questioning the purpose, somewhat of a mystery still making it a taboo to most.

We wanted to find the answers to some things you've been curious about but perhaps too embarrassed to ask.

Let’s start with what might be the biggest question.

1. Will it get me “high”?

No. In no way does CBD negatively impact your mind or mental processes.

CBD is a different, naturally occurring compound that is completely nonpsychoactive, according to CBD Origin. Instead, it delivers healing properties of the plant without the negative effects or getting you high.

2. Will it show up on a drug test?

Most CBD users will not have trouble passing a drug test, U.S. Drug Test Centers says. Officials there noted, however, that for people who use extremely high levels of CBD or hemp oil it is possible, though unlikely, to produce a “false positive” result on a drug test. That said, knowing your source is HUGE !! There are many products out there today being made with CBD plants that contain levels of THC. In a market that is so unregulated it is getting harder for consumers to find reliable sources. Knowing your source is a huge part of staying aware of what you are ingesting with a Non FDA approved product.

3. How do I administer it?

CBD can be used in a number of ways, including:

As a liquid

As a pill

Mixing it directly into food

A vaporizer pen

Topically, such as in salves or creams

4. What will it help with?

Here is where we have to trad water lightly. Cannabis has so very limited studies done by the government that most claims are said to be hear say almost. Many people have heard stories of it stopping seizures and sometimes alone yes it can help with seizure disorders but not usually alone. That's why we always recommend to be under that care of a doctor who specializes in cannabis to be able to guide you with doses and other cannabinoids that combined with CBD that could help. Alone though CBD has shown many strides in the healthcare world helping others who suffer from.

Acne

Alzheimer's disease

Anxiety disorders

Arthritis

Epilepsy

Cancer

Inflammation

Post-traumatic stress disorder

Seizures

Type 1 diabetes

BUT AGAIN NOT FDA APPROVED NOR DO WE CLAIM CBD WILL CURE ILLNESSES.

5. Is it legal?

Yes. If the CBD does not also contain THC, it is not restricted the same way products that contain THC are.

That leads us to our next question ...

6. Is CBD approved by the Food and Drug Administration?

The only CBD products that have been approved by the FDA are Epidiolex — for treatment of seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome or Dravet syndrome in patients 2 years and older — and Marinol and Syndros, which are used for therapeutic purposes including the treatment of anorexia and AIDS, according to the FDA.

No other CBD drug products have gotten approval.

7. Where can I buy CBD?

CBD that doesn’t contain THC is available at health stores, food markets, boutiques — there is an array of places you can find it but again know the source do research read reviews know what you are putting in the body.

If you're considering using CBD, consult with a licensed medical professional who can help you assess if the decision to use CBD is best for you.
