Note: Our CBD FAQ is intended only to give a basic overview and not an exhaustive treatment of each question.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second major cannabinoid found in cannabis plants like hemp and marijuana. Unlike THC, the other major cannabinoid, CBD is non-psychoactive.

CBD stands for cannabidiol – the second most common cannabinoid found in cannabis. THC is the other most common cannabinoid. This CBD FAQ is purposely brief, more info can be found here.

THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is one of at least 113 cannabinoids identified in cannabis. THC is the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis. With chemical name-trans-Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol, the term THC also refers to cannabinoid isomers.  Source: Wikipedia

Create CBD hemp oil from hemp. Unlike CBD Cannabis Oil, made from marijuana plants. It will contain little to no THC. CBD Cannabis Oil can contain significantly more THC than CBD Hemp Oil. Actually, this version can contain an equal amount of THC to CBD.

Yes. Pets can benefit from CBD for many of the same conditions as humans: pain, seizures, inflammation, and anxiety. CBD is safe to use for pets, however, their dosage will likely be much smaller than yours.

Dogs have a higher concentration of cannabinoid receptors in their brain. So, they are very sensitive to THC. But a small amount of THC, like the amount in a full spectrum CBD hemp oil, is beneficial for animals. We recommend you speak with a veterinarian (holistic veterinarian) before you start giving your pet CBD.

CBD is considered to be a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. Alternatively, it will not get you high in the way that marijuana (THC) gets you high. With CBD, you may feel a relaxation similar to a subtle “high” and relaxation. For some CBD will be too sedating; others will find that the sedating effects of CBD are great for insomnia.

CBD is not psychoactive in the way that THC is psychoactive and it will not get you high. However, CBD can have an effect on your mental state. So, many users of CBD report feeling a very subtle feeling of relaxation, alertness, or mental clarity from taking CBD.

No. Hemp seed oil is a food product, not a drug. Hemp seed oil comes from hemp seeds – evidently, a good source of nutrition and protein.

No. CBD oil is a medicinal product. CBD oil is a liquid concentrate of CBD. Another term for CBD oil is CBD tincture. Hemp oil is pressed from hemp seeds. Certainly, hemp oil is a highly nutritious food product which contains no CBD.

Anxiety is a complex condition and beyond the scope of this CBD FAQ. Reports show that some high users of CBD may experience anxiety or increase their existing anxiety.

In fact, for many users CBD will act as a powerful anti-anxiety drug. CBD has been well studied as an anxiolytic and anti-psychotic drug. So, Anti-anxiety is one of the most common reasons people seek out and use CBD.

High doses of CBD are safe. CBD will not cause a fatal overdose. However, it is possible to take too much CBD. A consequence of taking too much CBD is the increased chance of negative side effects like lethargy or drowsiness.

Yes. CBD is metabolized by a group of enzymes called the CYP450. These enzymes are responsible for metabolizing many commonly used drugs. Indeed, CBD can inhibit the activity of the CYP450 enzymes.

Typically, CBD-drug interactions are more likely with high doses of CBD and CBD isolates. Always take care, when using CBD alongside life preserving medications for serious conditions (i.e. epilepsy medications).

CBD isolate or otherwise called “pure CBD” is the CBD molecule separated from the rest of the compounds it normally occurs with. CBD isolate usually appears as a crystalline white powder. Both synthesized in a lab (synthetic CBD) or made from a CBD containing plant like marijuana or hemp.

No. CBD is not an FDA approved pharmaceutical or dietary supplement. You may purchase CBD without a prescription.

Yes. Anyone living in a state or country where it is legal to use CBD can buy CBD oil. Enjoy purchasing over the counter without a prescription.

Currently, the legal status of CBD is not clear. It’s legal to use in states which allow medical and recreational cannabis use. CBD is legal in states which allow for the use of hemp products. Therefore, CBD and cannabis laws vary from state to state and it is up to you to know the exact laws for where you live.

No. Drug tests look for THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana. Drug tests do not test for specifically CBD. But, some CBD cannabis oils and CBD hemp oils will contain either a small amount (in the case of CBD hemp oil) or significant amount of THC (in the case of CBD cannabis oil). These amounts of THC, even if they are tiny, can cause a failure of a drug test when a person is using CBD oil.

Furthermore, even if the amount of THC is very small as in the case of CBD hemp oil (which does not allow for a presence of THC higher than 0.3%), a drug test failure can occur if the person using large quantities. As a result, use caution with drug tests and CBD oil.

Ultimately, there are many different ways to use CBD. For example, sublingual tinctures/sprays, topical lotions/balms, oral edibles/capsules, and inhalation by vaporization or smoking. At CBD School, we think sublingual tinctures and sprays are one of the best ways to use CBD. Because, dosing is very precise. Also, you can easily check for the quality of the product by requesting a lab report from the manufacturer. Equally, by the reasonably fast onset of effects.
