What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history going back thousands of years. Today the properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed around the world. A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust profile.
Do CBD products make me feel high?
No, CBD does not have any psychoactive effects and the minimal percentage of THC (usually <0.2%) does not affect you. CBD products are not the same presentation of cannabis that would be used for illicit or illegal drug use.
What are CBD products made of?
The CBD used in products such as CBD oils, e-liquids, tinctures, creams, and drops is derived from hemp plants. This is because of its higher CBD concentration and lower THC content.
Will I test positive on drug tests if I use CBD products?
It depends on the test, you will not test positive on regular drug tests because they usually screen for THC. However, if the test is designed to test for all cannabinoids, the result will be positive. Remember, CBD Oil is perfectly legal in the Switzerland, The UK, and the USA so being tested positive for CBD is not a crime. CBD products are used for their natural health benefits- they are not an illicit drug.
How do I choose the right dosage?
Dosing CBD correctly involves many different variables. We recommend taking 3 to 9 drops of the oil sublingually, (under the tongue) 3 times a day. However we encourage customers new to CBD start with a low dosage and increase it until you feel the desired relief.
