Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD oil?
CBD oil or cannabidiol oil is a substance derived from the hemp or cannabis plant containing high amounts of the cannabinoid cannabidiol.
Most CBD oil comes from industrial hemp rather than psychoactive marijuana strains; while the two plants are related, industrial hemp does not contain nearly as much psychoactive tetrahydrocannabiol, another cannabinoid better known as THC. In fact, industrial hemp cannot contain more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis – a nearly negligible amount.
What does CBD oil do?
“CB1 receptors in the brain are associated with emotions, mood, appetite, coordination, movement, and pain,” “CB2 receptors are found in the immune system and throughout tissues of the spleen and tonsils.”
The endocannabinoid system is a relatively new discovery. In fact, it was actually discovered and named after the cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Seeing as cannabinoids are the compounds that activate this system, many have posited that cannabinoids like THC or CBD could help improve endocannabinoid function.
While CBD oil’s benefits are still being tested, some studies connect CBD oil to reducing the symptoms of epilepsy, neuropathic and multiple sclerosis-related pain, and cancer. Many people also claim that CBD helps with anxiety.
How do I take CBD and at what dosage?
Before adding CBD oil to your regimen, as with any supplement, be sure to check with your doctor to make sure that it’s a good choice for you. This is especially true if you are taking certain anti-seizure medications.
CBD oil can be consumed in a myriad of ways: tinctures, oil vaping, capsules, sublinguals, or even topicals. When taking CBD, always follow the instructions on the package of the product you have purchased.

Can you get high from CBD oil?
No. THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid that makes you high; CBD does not have any psychoactive properties. While many CBD oils, particularly full-spectrum products, contain trace amounts of THC, it is not enough to make you high.
If you are at a risk for random drug tests, for example through your job, you may wish to choose a CBD oil that is entirely devoid of THC.
Are there side effects from taking CBD oil?
What is the difference between CBD oil and 100% hemp oil?
Is CBD oil legal?
Yes! Most CBD oil is produced from industrial hemp, the same plant used to make hemp textiles and hemp seeds. This plant contains trace amounts of psychoactive THC – not enough to make you high although this can cause a positive result on drugs test. For people to who this may concern we offer our athletes range.
Will you fail a drug test if you take CBD?
Our full spectrum range contains less than the legal amount of THC (0.2%) – not enough to become psychoactive (high), but as it contains a trace of THC it is possible to fail a drugs test, we recommend our broad spectrum athletes range as a perfect alternative as you have zero chance of failing a test.
