- What is CBD (Cannabidoil) ?
Cannabidiol CBD Oil is one of more than 80 known components found in cannabis. There’s an ever increasing amount of research pointing to various health aspects found in CBD, all while being non-psychoactive, that is arrived at from the Hemp plant. The component responsible for giving users a “high” is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is prevalent in Cannabis and not in Hemp. According to scientific research and studies, CBD’s are anti-convulsive, sedative, anti-psychotic, anti-nausea, anti-inflammatory. CBD is a potent antioxidant compound with neuroprotective properties as well. To see the latest research & studies in multiple disorders, visit Pubmed.org and ProjectCBD.org.
- How does CBD Oil work ?
CBD stimulates and regulates the endo-cannabinoid system, a group of neuromodulators in our body responsible for a variety of physiological processes. Our bodies produce many different cannabinoids that interact with our cannabinoid receptors. This is facilitated by the endo-cannabinoid system. The endo-cannabinoid system regulates appetite, pain-sensation, mood, memory and more by producing cannabinoids to interact with our body’s cannabinoid receptors that are found in the brain, as well as on some of our organs.
Most cannabinoids bind into these receptors, CBD, which is essentially a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in plants, interacts with the endo-cannabinoid system indirectly, regulating the production of our own internal cannabinoids and promoting the overall health of our endo-cannabinoid system. The endo-cannabinoid system plays a crucial role in the normal functions of the immune and nervous systems.
By stimulating and regulating the endo-cannabinoid system with CBD, we can observe a wide variety of positive effects, as showcased by numerous recent studies on the subject. Research on the exact properties of CBD and its interaction with our bodies is currently underway, meanwhile doctors and scientists uncover new facts about this cannabinoid literally every month. network of doctors chemists and scientists are on the forefront of research and development. So far, the results have been amazing.

- Is Cannabidiol CBD Oil Legal ?
Yes it is. It is legal to sell and ship CBD products to ALL 50 United States. Here’ why . . .
*In March, 2017, the DEA acknowledged that CBD sourced from industrial hemp cultivated lawfully pursuant to a State’s industrial hemp laws enacted under the 2014 US Farm Bill is legal. This is because “industrial hemp” is itself specifically excluded from the CSA’s definition of marijuana in Section 7606 of the Farm Bill. Since industrial hemp is excluded from the definition of the CSA, and a “product consist[ing] solely of parts of the cannabis plant excluded from the CSA definition of marijuana” is not included in the new drug code, then such product (in our case, CBD) is also excluded from the definition of marijuana under the CSA and is thus legal.
“None of the funds made available by this act or any other act may be used… to prohibit the transportation, processing, sale or use of industrial hemp that is grown or cultivated in accordance with section 7606 of the Agricultural Act of 2014, within or outside the State in which the industrial hemp is grown or cultivated.”.

- Are CBD Oil products safe ?

- What’s the difference between Cannabidiol CBD Oil and THC ?
Chemically they are both cannabinoid compounds, which makes their molecules look similar but are very different. There are over 85 known cannabinoids. THC and CBD are the two most common, and therefore the most studied. THC is a psychoactive compound, whereas CBD is non-psychoactive.
- What’s the difference between hemp and marijuana ?
Hemp and marijuana are different varieties of the Cannabis genus of plants, bred for different purposes. Industrial hemp is exclusively produced by Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can refer to the sub-genuses of Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, or Cannabis ruderalis. Industrial hemp is grown to be fibrous and durable, with very long stalks and as few flowering buds as possible. Marijuana strains of cannabis are typically smaller, flimsier and have as many flowering buds as their breeding can allow. Marijuana is bred with the sole purpose of maximizing the concentration of THC, while industrial hemp naturally has trace amounts of THC and fairly high amounts of CBD. Hemp’s chemical profile means that you can’t get ‘high’ from it and it is used to create medicinal remedies, food and oil, as well as other products including rope, bricks, natural polymers, fiber, clothes and many more. Marijuana is used recreationally and medicinally only.

You can also take it directly, letting the oil absorb into your mouth rather than swallowing it right away. CBD oil is not water soluble, so it won’t mix with water or juice.

1) 15 drops of CBD oil (or the equivalent of ½ ml) 2 times per day, for mild problems such as everyday anxiety, mild aches, mild sleep problems and general health maintenance.

- Will I fail a drug test if I’m taking Cannabidiol CBD Oil ?
We must first preface any answer to this type of question to say that we are not lawyers and cannot provide a simple yes or no or offer legal advice as to the type of drug test which may or may not be used for an employer or any other type of drug screening.
With that said, we must consider the type of screening being performed. Most employers performing a drug screening will use the SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) guidelines. These guidelines specify an initial urine test be performed. Generally speaking, the analyte of interest in this analysis is the psychoactive component, THC. Other non-psychoactive cannabinoids (CBD, CBN, CBG, etc) will not typically be identified in this test. With that said, heavy users (1-2 grams per day) of CBD concentrates like oil and isolate have the potential to test positive for THC in this urine analysis. If a urine test is positive, SAMHSA guidelines specify a more accurate GC/MS analysis be performed to eliminate any potential for false positive results from the urine analysis. In a GC/MS analysis, the molecule differences between CBD and THC are easily identified.
You must consult your employer’s guidelines and acceptance criteria for their definition of what is considered illegal drug use. Some companies may include all cannabinoids in their policy, which can impact drug testing results for CBD users.
