No! It will make you feel uplifted, but it does not interact with your brain in the same way THC does. In fact, CBD is antagonistic to the marijuana high, meaning it prevents THC molecules from binding to the brain's receptors. CBD actually counteracts THC.
While THC directly binds to the CB1 receptor, CBD elevates the endocannabinoids that your body makes to stimulate them instead. It also opens pathways and ion channels to help your brain work at a higher functionality.
CBD is commonly used for a multitude of reasons, but the most common are: pain, inflammation, depression, anxiety and seizures.
Marijuana and hemp are two very different varieties of the cannabis plant. In general, CBD is found abundantly in both. However it is important to note that CBD is typically found in the seeds and stems of marijuana- not in the flowering buds. The hemp plant is an entirely different strain of cannabis that contains high quantities of CBD through the entire plant- with practically zero traces of THC. Every product in our store comes from industrial hemp.
With the passing of the "Farm Bill" in 2018, hemp was removed from the scheduled list and made legal as an agricultural commodity.
The ONLY significant danger/side effect of taking CBD is actually not in CBD at all. It is in the oils and chemicals they add to CBD, specifically CBD vape. Many vape companies add propylene glycol as a thinning agent- when propylene gycol [PG] is burned or vaped... it produces formaldehyde which is a known carcinogen. CBD oils produced by co2 extraction are much safer and more pure than oils produced by thinning agents.
Other than that, most research has concluded the CBD is perfectly safe with no known side effects. There have been a small handful of users that reported drowsiness, lightheadedness, low blood pressure and dry mouth.
Absolutely! CBD oils are a fantastic ingredient to cook with.
THOUSANDS of scientific and medical studies have been carried out specifically on CBD. The US Government owns a patent on CBD. It has been studied extensively for many years.
A high quality CBD product with minimal THC is incredibly unlikely to show up on a drug test. However, low quality CBD companies may contain more than the allowed legal amount of CBD and in that case it would absolutely be possible to fail a drug screen. Research has shown that people who consume 6mg of THC per day have a 25% chance of failing a drug test. CBD products contain less than 0.3% THC. That translates to about 2,000mg per day of CBD oil.
This is a tricky one because it depends entirely on what you're using CBD for. For effective treatment of majority of conditions, most people use between 10-50mg of CBD per day total.
Definitely not! Standard hemp seed oil, which can be found at most grocery stores, is a MUCH different product than CBD hemp extracts. Standard hemp see oil is produced by cold pressing the seeds. CBD hemp extract is a FULL PLANT extraction with many components not typically found in the seeds. Hemp seed oil is considered to be a great nutritive super food, but it does not have naturally occurring terpenes and cannabinoids that extracts have.
