What is CBD?
CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is 1 of over 100 chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. It is found in more significant quantities in hemp than it is in marijuana. CBD is non-psychoactive and may have a wide range of benefits.
Will CBD get me high?
Unlike its close cousin, THC, CBD is non-psychoactive so it won’t make you high.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a system of neurotransmitters and receptors located in the brain, nervous system, and throughout the body. CBD has been shown to interact with the endocannabinoid system to help keep your body in balance.
Will I fail a drug test if I use CBD?
Our CanRelieve products (except for the Apple Cider Vinegar Gummy) contain non-detectable levels of THC, but it depends on the testing standards of the lab that administers the drug test. Most screenings for cannabinoids are only looking for THC and THC metabolites. Some testing facilities test for a full range of cannabinoids which could then trigger a positive drug test. You should contact your testing facility to find out what type of testing they do.
Is CBD legal?
Hemp is legal at the federal level. Industrial hemp is described by the 2018 Farm Bill as having less than 0.3% THC, which is the compound that produces the high associated with marijuana. All of CanRelieve’s CBD oil products are derived from hemp, are legal, and can be shipped to all 50 U.S. states. However, CBD oil derived from marijuana can only be purchased in states with medical marijuana programs.
What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Both hemp and marijuana are part of the cannabis plant category. The defining difference between hemp and marijuana is the amount of THC (the psychoactive compound that makes you high). Hemp contains a very low concentration of THC (0.3% or less), while marijuana is abundant in THC.
What are Terpenes?
Terpenes are aromatic and flavorful metabolites found in the oils of all plants. Terpenes have been used for thousands of years in the healing modality known as aromatherapy. They are responsible for giving a plant a certain smell and taste. Terpenes also determine how a particular strain of plant will affect the body and mind. For instance, linalool is a terpene found in lavender and is also present in some cannabis strains. It has calming effects and is also known for its beneficial properties.
How do you get CBD out of the hemp plant?
The CBD oil in CanRelieve’s products is extracted from the hemp plant using CO2 extraction. This process utilizes CO2 at a low temperature and under high pressure which allows the CO2 to be captured in a liquid state and it efficiently draws the CBD and terpenes from the plant material.
What do “full-spectrum” and “broad spectrum” mean?
The term “full-spectrum” refers to CBD oil products that contain a combination of various cannabinoids, terpenes and other beneficial compounds found in hemp. Full-spectrum products may also contain trace amounts of THC. “Broad-spectrum” products are basically full-spectrum products but without any THC. CanRelieve’s CBD products (except for our Apple Cider Vinegar Gummy) are considered broad-spectrum since we leave intact all the beneficial products of the whole plant, but completely remove the psychoactive component of the hemp plant, THC.
What is the entourage effect?
Full-spectrum CBD oils contain combinations of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other beneficial compounds. Many of these compounds work together, or synergistically, to create what scientists refer to as an “entourage effect” that magnifies the benefits of the plant’s individual components. In this way, the whole plant compounds work together to achieve a greater degree of wellness. Non-full spectrum products do not have the benefit of this entourage effect.
How do I start taking CBD Oil?
CBD oil is available in a wide variety of dosage forms and strengths. Each person is unique so the dose and form of CBD will be different for everyone. It is best to start out with a low dose of CBD so that you can always increase it. You can stay at a particular dosage once you find the best level for yourself.
Are there any side effects or drug interactions with CBD?
CBD is not known to have any side effects, but taking CBD in large doses may make you drowsy. Studies have shown that CBD may affect the metabolism of certain classes of drugs. Ongoing research needs to be done. It is best to consult with a qualified health professional if you are taking prescription medications.
Shelf life and storage requirements.
The shelf life of CanRelieve products is usually about 18 months. Please refer to the expiration date on your item(s). CanRelieve products should be stored in a cool, dry environment to protect their stability.
When is the best time of day to take CBD?
Most people prefer to start using CBD about two hours before bedtime because initially, it can make you drowsy. You should start with about 5-20mg of CBD once daily, increasing the dose slowly every 3-7 days until you find a good level of effects. Then stay at that dose.
Where is your hemp grown?
Our products contain hemp that is grown in Colorado, Oregon, and California.
How does CBD work?
CBD works as a modulator in the Endocannabinoid System by influencing the body to use the endocannabinoids that already exist and by slowing their breakdown.
Which type of CBD works the quickest?
CBD tinctures usually offer the quickest effects within about 10-15 minutes. Tinctures should be placed under the tongue and held there for at least 60-90 seconds. The dose gets absorbed by the tissues and capillaries of the tongue and goes directly into the bloodstream.
Do your products have Certificates of Analysis?
Yes, all our products have Certificates of Analysis which are available for review. We also spot-check our products by sending them out for third-party testing.
