Get the facts and start living a healthier and energized life.
1. What is CBD?
Cannabinoidol (CBD) is one of over 85 compounds found in cannabis that belongs to a class of molecules called cannabinoids. The most well-known cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is a psychoactive compound found in most marijuana strains and produces the various effects most users would associate with being “high.” CBD offers none of that.
The human body contains its own endocannabinoid system (ECS), which houses various cannabinoid receptors. The chemical compounds that interact with the ECS support memory, mood, brain reward systems, and energy balance. The ECS system has also been found to be beneficial in combating depression, anxiety, increasing appetite, and create feelings of well-being. CBD naturally acts on the ECS system’s signals to increase receptor function and flow, with no psychoactive reactions in the body.
2. What are some uses for CBD?
Research for CBD are as follows:
- Support healthy joints—Research suggest that CBD has the ability to help keep with joint health.
- Increasing the Appetite of Ill Patients—Patients who fall ill, have prolonged hospital visits or under chemotherapy tend to lose their appetite and become malnourished over time. CBD has been shown to help with appetite.
- Support brain health—A study has shown that CBD has the ability to help with oxidative stress. Our bodies naturally produce free radicals, which are damaging. Free radicals overwhelm organs and inhibit repair.
3. How do I Use CBD oil?
The CBD Coconut Oil can easily replace any current coconut oil you currently use at home for cooking, smoothies, or beauty and topical purposes.
Super CBD Oil comes in a dropper form, making it easy to carry with you anywhere. We recommend placing two droppers once daily under your tongue, and holding in your mouth for 30 seconds before swallowing. After a week you can cut the dose to one dropper. For a more relaxed sleep, take 1 drop using the above methods, 40 minutes before bed. Although some have reported that it gives them energy so do experiment with what’s best with your body. Every individual is different.
4. What’s The Difference Between Hemp Oil and CBD Oil?
Hemp oil is extracted from seeds of hemp plants. While they can be extracted from any cannabis plant, industrial hemp (non-drug use) typically is the only plant used for oil extraction. In terms of usage, hemp oil provides more benefits for everyday use. It can be used for cooking, moisturizing, soaps, the making of bio-diesel fuel, the formation of plastic products, and even vegetable oils. Hemp oil contains low levels of CBD, meaning it offers little therapeutic benefit.
CBD oil is extracted from the flowers, leaves, and stalks of hemp. Its properties are more beneficial for overall wellness and body support. All of these benefits come with no psychoactive response in the system.
5. Does CBD Contain THC? Will It Show Up on a Drug Test?
Unfortunately, it is possible for CBD to result in a positive for THC—much like eating a poppy seed bagel can cause a positive for opiates depending on the type of test. Our product contains THC in legal 0.3 percent amount, which is enough to cause the “Entourage Effect”. The Entourage Effect is the synergy observed between various marijuana compounds. Ironically alcohol which is common and damaging doesn’t require any test, but this plant does. Use your best judgement if planning to be tested.
6. Can I Use CBD Oil If I’m pregnant?
7. Can I Use CBD Oil While I’m Breastfeeding?
Very little is known about CBD and lactation. However cannabinoids, naturally occur in breast milk, prompting some to believe that cannabinoids support the immunity, development, and functioning of new born babies. Individuals should use discretion and consult with a physician who understands CBD and its properties before use.
8. Will CBD Make Me Sleepy?
Reported studies suggest CBD has the opposite effect of THC. CBD promotes alertness and can boost your energy at low levels.
9. Will CBD Suppress or increase my appetite?
CBD promotes appetite, according to the National Cancer Institute. Individuals who are depressed, suffer from anxiety, or who are malnourished from a lack of eating can reportedly stimulate appetite through CBD use.
10. What Type of CBD oil should I buy?
For starters, your CBD oil should be organic, non-GMO, soy and gluten free. It should be grown in soil that is free of pesticides, herbicides, and artificial fertilizers. An ideal CBD oil, should be easily absorbed by the body, fast-acting to provide its benefits immediately, and should be recognized as a top CBD in comparison to others.
11. Is CBD Oil Legal In My State or Country?
If you live in the U.S, Germany, Italy, Spain, Israel, or U.K., it is legal for you to purchase our CBD products. Remember this product only offers trace amounts of THC, the compound responsible for marijuana’s psychoactive properties.
12. Why Is the Price Of CBD High?
Since our CBD comes from the stems and stalks of plants, extraction is much more difficult. High quality CBD uses non-GMO, CBD-rich hemp oil grown in soil that has been managed without pesticides, herbicides or artificial fertilizers. In addition patent-pending formulas should include an increase in bio-availability to allow easy passing of CBD through cell membranes.
13. Why Is the additive maltodextrin used in CBD? Is It Harmful?
For people who have celiac disease, diabetes, or digestive issues, additives are not a thing to overlook or take lightly. Maltodextrin is a common additive, mostly extracted from corn, rice, potato starch, or wheat. It’s highly processed and can be genetically modified.
This product contains trace amounts of Certified Organic Tapioca maltodextrin that the organic fair trade acerola cherry extract is dried onto. Organic Tapioca maltodextrin is a plant sugar and should not impact the health or digestive system of any user. GMO corn maltodextrin tends to be a catalyst for people with allergies or diet restrictions. Our CBD products are gluten, corn, soy, and GMO free.
