Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa L plant and refers to the non-intoxicating (less than 0.3% THC) strains. Hemp and marijuana come from the same cannabis species but have different genetics and cannabinoid profiles, with hemp rich in cannabidiol or CBD and marijuana producing mostly psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol or THC.

CBD will not make you feel high or intoxicated. Although it is extracted from the Cannabis sativa plant, cannabidiol doesn’t have the same psychoactive properties as THC, the main active phytocannabinoid in marijuana.

DOES CBD OIL HAVE THC?

CBD oil made from full spectrum hemp extracts typically has very small amounts of THC (less than 0.3%). CBD products must contain less than 0.3% THC to be federally legal. This amount of THC is not enough to have intoxicating effects or make you feel high. CBD oil made with a CBD isolate will not contain any THC. We recommend checking a product’s lab analysis for exact THC potency.

HOW MUCH CBD OIL SHOULD I TAKE?

Dosing is highly dependent on each individual and if you are new to CBD we recommend starting with a low dose, around ½ dropper once a day and increase from there until you find a dose that you are seeing results from.  Low doses tend to act as a stimulant, exerting effects such as increased mental alertness and focus. In higher doses, CBD has sedative effects, giving it the potential to help alleviate stress, anxiety, and sleeping problems. Some effects may be acute while others can take up to 30 days.

Some research shows that CBD may significantly decrease subjective anxiety and increase mental sedation by changing activity of brain regions that normally mediate anxiety.
