1Is CBD legal?
Yes, all CBD from industrial hemp is federally legal. CBD from domestically grown plants must come with state certifications and can come from flower, seeds, and stalks. CBD from imported industrial hemp can come from seeds and stalks only and is legal in all 50 states as a food or supplement as a natural constituent of the hemp plant. We carry products manufactured from both imported and domestic hemp.
2How Do CBD's Work?
We are learning more about CBD every day. What we’ve learned so far from research is that our bodies have something called an Endocannabinoid System, which consists of receptors located on cells all throughout the body. Compounds like CBD interact with these receptors for potential anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, anti-nausea and many other effects still being studied. The US National Library of Medicine is a great place to learn more: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed
3What will CBD's do for me?
There has been lots of research on the impact of CBD on overall health. We are not doctors and cannot diagnose, treat, or prescribe medicine for any disease. We really recommend that you do research to determine if this compound will help you. Some great websites to view for CBD research data are ProjectCBD.org & PubMed.
4What is the difference between CBD and THC?
Chemically they are both cannabinoid compounds, which makes their molecule look similar but they are very different. There are over 85 known cannabinoids. THC and CBD are the two most common, and therefore the most studied. THC is a psychoactive compound, whereas CBD is non-psychoactive.
5What is the endocannabinoid system?
This is part of the body’s nervous system and there are studies that explain it more in detail. It’s best to do your own research (we can point you in the right direction if you ask us) as we are not doctors and the information about the endocannabinoid system is ever evolving.
6How do I know how much I need?
Everyone is different. The recommended serving size is included by the manufacturer on the product label and is usually enough for most people & we recommend you start there. If, within a week, you are not seeing results that you hope for, try taking a recommended serving twice daily. Please use your own judgment as this is a food product that is oil based and excess oil may upset your stomach.
7Are your products safe?
Our products have all been lab tested. We will never put a product on our website that we believe could be harmful or unsafe.
8Where does your CBD come from?
There are two ways that Hemp can be legally sold in the US. The first is to be legally imported Hemp extract from seeds and stalks. Most of our products use imported Hemp from Europe, but the second way – domestically grown Hemp – is becoming much more prevalent. Domestically grown Hemp extract is legal under the 2014 US Farm Bill as one of a number of nutrition and agricultural products.
9What’s the best way for me to take it?
There are many methods to add CBD to your daily regimen. Some people prefer to ingest it orally & some people prefer to vaporize it. There are topical benefits as well. Each method has a different level of absorption and everyone’s body is different.
10Will I Fail A Drug Test While Using CBD?
There are different ways that companies test for drugs. Most work-place drug screens and tests target delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and do not detect the presence of Cannabidiols or other legal natural hemp-based constituents.
However, studies have shown that eating hemp foods and oils can cause confirmed positive results when screening urine and blood specimens on a full cannabinoid profile. Accordingly, if you are subject to any form of drug testing or screening, we recommend (as does the United States Armed Services) that you DO-NOT ingest these products.
11Is there THC in your products?
Our products contain very little THC, if any. In order to be federally legal in the US, there can be a maximum of 0.3% THC in the product. This level is low enough that there is no psychotropic effect from our product.
12What will I feel?
What we’ve learned from our customers and research is that everyone is different when it comes to CBD. While most people report feeling very calm, relaxed or even tired, others may not be affected in that way.
13What are the side effects?
CBD may have a slight sedative effect, even in small servings. Stomach discomfort has been reported after a very large amount was taken all at once.
14Will it interact with other medications?
Anything that you add to your system could interact with prescription medications. We will always recommend that you consult with your doctor.
15Is this a drug?
All of our hemp products are considered food or supplements.
16Is Hemp oil always CBD?
There is a difference between hemp seed oil and CBD. Hemp seed oil is great for you, containing lots of healthy fats and amino acids, but it will not contain more than a trace amount of cannabinoids. CBD and other cannabinoids have to be extracted from the plant – not simply pressed from the seeds.
17Is your CBD synthetic?
NO – all of our products are from natural sources using CO2 extraction, lab tested for quality, metals and solvents.
18What are CBD Isolates?
CBD isolate is a fine white powder containing 99% pure CBD. This pure crystalline contains only the CBD chemical compound, offering CBD in its most concentrated form.
This may cause you to think that CBD isolate is synthetic or crafted in a lab. No! CBD isolate is an all-natural cannabinoid supplement made from hemp oil that’s been refined down to pure CBD.
CBD Isolate removes all of the oils, waxes, chlorophyll, and other plant material to leave behind only valuable CBD, which can then be taken directly or through various methods.
19Will CBD help me if I’m healthy?
Per US Patent 6,630,507, CBD products promote and support the nutritional health of aging bodies.
20Do you use any artificial flavorings?
Most of our products are either unflavored or naturally flavored, but there are some vape products with a mix of natural and artificial flavoring. You can read the full ingredient list in the product description.
21What are CBD Terpenes?
Green Leaf PURE offers high-quality CBD terpenes oil. These products are a blend of CBD and terpenes extracted from the industrial hemp plant. Terpenes are the aromatic and flavorful component of plant essential oils. A well-known terpene is a limonene. Not only is this found in varieties of hemp, the plant that contains CBD, but it is also found in citrus peels! These flavored CBD terps come in many varieties. Essential plant oils have become common place in many households. These CBD terpenes products offer an efficient way to integrate these terpenes into you daily CBD regimen.
