Frequently Asked Questions
Lucky for you, we are not doctors so we will explain this in the simplest way possible.
What is CBD?
CBD is 1 of over 100 naturally found cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. CBD is non-intoxicating and works in our body with our Endocannabinoid System to maintain overall wellness.
Does that mean CBD is a cure all?
Absolutely not. If you are diabetic, you still need to keep track of your blood sugar etc…
Now that the Farm Bill has legalized CBD, scientists are able to study the different ways that modulating the endocannabinoid system with CBD and/or THC can slow – or in some cases stop- diseases.
Will CBD cure all my physical and mental problems?
Every person is different so the level of relief varies by person. To say CBD will cure anything would be quite arrogant and incorrect. But what it can do is reduce stress, pain, anxiety down to a manageable level so it is easier to make those choices or changes in your life that can improve your overall health.
The FDA has only released one approved drug containing CBD and that is Epidiolex for seizures.
What if it does not work?
People have been using cannabis in its various forms for many, many years. They know it works, what they have not been able to study is how, where, when and why.
Dosing is different for every person. There is no cookie cutter measure that will fit every person.
The rule of thumb is: start with a low dose. If you don’t notice any change, up the dose by a little until you find your sweet spot. Then stay there.
If even that does not work (unlikely) then we have a 30-day Money Back Guarantee. Our desire is to see you well, not broke. We will happily refund your purchase. (See return policy for more details)
Is CBD safe?
There are no known cases of sickness caused by using CBD. Our products are third party tested to ensure there are no unhealthy ingredients or pesticides in the finished product.

What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The Human Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a system of neurotransmitters and cell membrane receptors. Neurotransmitters are produced by the central nervous system and interact with cannabinoid receptors on cell membranes to adjust physiological processes at a cellular level.
How does the ECS work?
When you consume CBD, the ECS is what allows your body to reap the benefits. In addition to mediating the effects of CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids, the ECS is involved in regulating all kinds of cognitive and physical processes, including memory, mood, appetite, and even the “runner’s high” you get from voluntary exercise.
The two primary types of receptors in the ECS are CB1, present in the central nervous system and brain, and CB2, present in the peripheral nervous system (everything outside of your brain and spinal cord).
These receptors are involved in the regulation both of cannabinoids naturally produced by your body as well as those consumed from plants or other substances.
What can I use CBD for?
Arthritis, Anxiety/depression, addiction, cancer, Chron’s, Epilepsy, Fibromyalgia, Insomnia, Lupus, MS, Schizophrenia, Inflammation, Pain/sprain/bruises, nausea, stress, neuropathic pain.
Will I get high?
CBD is 100% non-psychoactive.
It does not negatively impact your mind or mental processes.
CBD does not get you “high”. Even full spectrum (less than .3%THC) will not produce any sort of “high”.
Will I fail a drug test?
CBD shouldn't show up on a drug test. However, many CBD products contain trace amounts of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), marijuana's main active ingredient.
If enough THC is present, it could possibly show up on a drug test.
This means that in rare cases, using CBD might lead to a positive drug test.
If you work in a random UA industry and you use full spectrum please know that there is a chance you might fail the drug test. Stick to cbd isolate or Broad Spectrum products.
