Frequently Asked Questions:
What is CBD?
CBD oil is typically extracted from the resin glands on the cannabis plant. It can also be extracted from hemp, which is an industrial, fibrous form of cannabis that has small buds and tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, concentration of 0.3% or less.
Why is CBD healthy for me to take?
CBD oil and other forms of CBD products (sprays, capsules, etc.) have demonstrated that they are non-intoxicating even at relatively high doses . Therefore, experts show several beneficial pharmacological effects.
What are the benefits of taking CBD?
There are a vast number of benefits associated with taking CBD. CBD has anti-inflammatory and antipsychotic properties. It is also known to reduce anxiety, nausea, and motion sickness. Furthermore, CBD shows neuroprotective properties; meaning, it can be used at high doses for treatment of a variety of conditions ranging from epileptic seizures, psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and dementia to diabetes.
At lower doses, CBD has physiological effects that promote and maintain health, including antioxidative components, meaning that CBD is effective in treating skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
How often should I use CBD?
The frequency of use and dosage of CBD depends on the ailment and the consumer. An effective dosage can range from a few milligrams to a few hundred milligrams per day, depending on the severity of the symptoms. It is recommended to begin with a small dose of CBD (25-50 mg/day), and then adjust your dosage, accordingly. In the beginning, taking a few small doses over the course of a day, rather than one big dosage, is advised to monitor and observe the effects, and then adjust the dose level accordingly. It is always advised to seek an opinion of your doctor on the recommended doses and dose frequency that is beneficial for your health.
Is CBD safe for my children?
The safety and efficacy of hemp derived CBD products has been partially established in adolescents or children under 18 years of age during the course of an open label pilot clinical study. More controlled clinical studies and long-term clinical side effect evaluations should be conducted. Therefore, CBD products should be used cautiously and carefully monitored in adolescents or children.
Is CBD addictive or habit forming?
No, CBD is non-addictive and non-habit forming. Pure CBD does not contain any trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid known to cause a high. This means that “pure CBD” will not cause you to experience any intoxicating effects.
Will I have withdrawals after I stop using CBD?
Most clinical data indicate that there is no evidence of withdrawal symptoms after using CBD. According to experts in the industry, CBD is entirely safe to use. Even when patients are given very high doses in clinical trials, no side effects where reported.
Why is CBD quickly gaining popularity?
CBD is quickly gaining popularity as a way to treat certain medical conditions naturally. With so many people suffering from a wide range of ailments, many consumers are looking for a way to manage their symptoms without the use of pharmaceuticals. CBD has no known side effects and is an affordable, natural alternative to prescription medications.
Do CBD products contain THC?
In its purest form, CBD does not have any of the main psychoactive properties (THC) found in the cannabis plant. NBHemp ensures that all of our CBD products are virtually 100% THC-free.
Is CBD legal in my state?
Yes, CBD is legal in all 50 states.
Will CBD make me high?
CBD is 100% non-psychoactive and will not produce a high.
Can my children overdose on CBD?
Although little or no undesirable side effects and overdose were observed in children with treatment resistant epilepsy, more clinical data are necessary to establish safety dose in the healthy pediatric population. More controlled clinical studies and long-term clinical side effect evaluations are ongoing. As with any supplement, CBD, too, should be carefully monitored in adolescents or children. If you have any questions, please consult your physician or pediatrician.
Can I overdose on CBD?
Consuming CBD products is considered low-risk. Even at high amounts, CBD is considered to be safe and non-toxic. There are no reported cases of CBD or cannabis overdose causing death. According to a safety study published in 2016, chronic usage of CBD of doses up to 1,500mg per day was well tolerated.
While there are no known severe side effects of taking CBD, it is essential to begin taking CBD in smaller doses when just starting out. Once you learn the effects of CBD on your body, you can gradually increase your dosage accordingly.
Will I pass my drug test, if I’m using CBD consistently?
If you consume CBD that is 99.99% THC free, or in other words “pure CBD,” you will pass a drug test.
Keep in mind, there are different kinds of drug tests being used on the market today. Some are very advanced and definitive based on LC-MS/MS or GC-MS/MS assays (and therefore more expensive), while others are less sophisticated (more cost effective) and non-selective or specific. When a laboratory uses the least expensive method to test for illegal substances, on occasion, CBD may get flagged as an illegal substance. However, when the more specific and definitive test is employed, 100% of the time no traces of euphoric cannabinoids such as THC will be found when using NBHemp products.
When scheduling your drug test, consult your employer and laboratory technician to see what types of drug tests are available to you and if you can request the higher-end drug test to be used.
How can I be certain that NBHemp is the right formulation for me?
NBHemp is engaged in the development of unique CBD formulations that meet the most exacting standards. Our CBD products are created using a proprietary formula that improves how quickly the CBD molecules move through the body’s tissues to reach the target receptors in targeted cells. As a result, consumers report fast-acting pain and/or inflammation relief.
Our hemp derived CBD oil products are available in three forms – tincture (sublingual drops), oral spray, and capsules – so you can choose which delivery method is right for you.
Which delivery method is best for me, e.g., Sublingual, Capsules, Oral Spray, Topical, etc.
It all depends on how you plan to use CBD. NBHemp CBD capsules are made for oral use only; whereas tinctures should be applied under the tongue for 30 seconds before swallowing. For localized muscle pain or relief from arthritis, a topical CBD product may be ideal.
