What is CBD?
Cannabidiol—(CBD) is one of the many natural compounds that come from the cannabis plant. When extracted from a specific species, known as Hemp, it contains little to no THC and is legal to possess and purchase in all 50 States.
How Is CBD Oil Administered?
CBD oil is most effectively absorbed sublingually.
Directions: Drop CBD oil directly under your tongue (sublingual administration), hold for 15-30 seconds and then swallow.
When absorbed under the tongue, CBD bypasses the digestive system and processing of the liver; therefore, the effects of CBD oil are not decreased by digestion. Sublingual application allows CBD to quickly enter the bloodstream and interact with the endocannabinoid system.
However, users can still choose to administer their CBD oil by putting it in beverages or food.
What is My Dosage?
Legally, we are unable to make dosage recommendations, but would suggest doing some further research at ProjectCBD.org. Linked is their Patient Guidance page, which has a wide array of information for using CBD, as well as recommended dosage.
To that point, CBD effects everyone differently – both immediately and over time – so the product and dosage that works best for each persons needs would depend on the individual.
Will I Fail a Drug Test?
Whatever your thoughts and opinions on workplace drug testing, it is a reality for many employees. Most drug tests screen for THC (delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol). Our products contain almost untraceable amounts of THC. However, studies have shown that eating foods containing hemp (seeds, oil, etc.) can cause confirmed positive results for THC. Therefore, if you are subject to any form of drug testing, it is our recommendation to talk with whomever may be testing you prior to using any hemp-derived CBD products.
How Does CBD Work in the Body?
CBD belongs to a class of molecules called phyto-cannabinoids and is non-psychoactive.This is the part of the plant that keeps you healthy, not high.
When someone takes CBD, the compound goes to their Human Endocannabinoid System (ECS) which is made up of receptors throughout the body and brain.
Through the ECS, CBD promotes homeostasis at a cellular level.
What Can I Expect for my First Time?
CBD is not THC- therefore do not expect any psychoactive euphoria. Instead, users should expect an absence of pain/ ailment.
