Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions our staff encounter daily. This is by no means an all-inclusive CBD resource, but it will help you get on your way to becoming an expert and confidently choosing the right product for you.
What is CBD?
CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is one of over 100+ chemicals found in the plant cannabis sativa, more commonly referred to as cannabis or hemp.
CBD is found within the flowering buds of the cannabis plant. Products such as hemp seed oil usually contain no CBD at all, as these products are crafted with the seeds and stems of the plant and not the flower.
How does CBD work?
CBD interacts with the Endocannabinoid System. Similar to the Circulatory System or Respiratory System as involuntary processes, the Endocannabinoid System is responsible for homeostasis and other critical functions of the body both internally and externally.
Our body naturally produces endocannabinoids that act as gatekeepers for our neurotransmitters, regulating signals that can induce anything from hunger to fever, depending on the needs of your body and the environment.
The cannabis plant produces phytocannabinoids, like CBD, which are structurally similar to endocannabinoids and can therefore perform similarly when introduced into the body. When our body has trouble producing its own endocannabinoids, CBD can potentially fill in the gaps.
Will CBD get me high?
Nope, not at all. Some users may report a feeling of euphoria or relaxation similar to being high, but what they are usually experiencing is relief from their symptoms.
In fact, CBD at higher dosages is known to counteract the intoxicating properties of THC, the molecule that is actually responsible for marijuana’s pop-culture “high”.
How can you sell THC in Texas?
The Farm Bill of 2018 allowed federal production of hemp products, removing hemp from a list of controlled substances and defining hemp as having less than 0.3% delta-9 THC or less on a dry weight basis. All of our delta-9 THC products are hemp-derived and manufactured in accordance with this rule.
Other THC isomers, like delta-8 and delta-10, are defined as hemp products which are made available for purchase under the same bill.
How much CBD should I take then?
Everyone’s body is different and therefore every dosage will be as well. That being said, there are a few guidelines to finding your perfect dose.
Start low and go slow. That’s our motto. Working your way up to your optimal dose is best, as more CBD does not always equal better results. Too much CBD may cause grogginess or drowsiness and may not produce the effects you’re looking for, plus as the concentration increases, so does the price.
There is no known toxic limit to CBD. Studies have been conducted with patients taking upwards of 1,500mg of CBD daily, with side effects ranging from upset stomach to lethargy. Our product doses are nowhere near this dosage in serving size.
Can CBD cure my symptoms?
CBD is not a cure, nor can we say that it will completely eliminate symptoms. CBD acts more as an aid for your ailments without the risk of addiction.
Studies involving CBD have shown positive outcomes for an ever-growing list of maladies that people experience daily. Most notably, CBD has been recommended for pain, inflammation, insomnia, and anxiety.
