As CBD products rise in popularity, so does the information surrounding them. Will CBD get you high? Is it even legal? And if the answers to those questions are no and yes, respectively, how in the world do you even use it?
Hey, it’s your lucky day! We’re answering all your CBD questions right here. Let’s get started!
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is a plant-based compound found in hemp—the same plant from which we get hemp seed milk. Nature’s Ultra makes their CBD products by dissolving CBD in fractionated coconut oil.
WILL CBD MAKE ME HIGH?
CBD will not make you high. While CBD is used for many things, getting high isn’t one of them. Pure CBD—known as CBD isolate—contains no THC, which is the mind-altering chemical found in marijuana. That means you can take CBD without having to worry about the effects of THC.
IS CBD SAFE?
CBD is generally safe, as long as the CBD products you’re buying are high quality. That’s why it’s so important to do research on the company you’re buying from.
Just like essential oils, everyone’s body reacts differently. Some people may like using CBD oil, while others may have sensitivity or not notice any difference at all. We recommend testing a small area of skin when using CBD products for the first time. If you notice any itching or swelling, wash off the product immediately.
IS CBD LEGAL?
As of 2018, hemp-derived products are federally legal if they contain less than 0.3 percent THC. This pertains to CBD oil that has been extracted from hemp plants.
Take time to research hemp and CBD laws in your state. While it may be federally legal, some states are stricter than others due to differing state laws and regulations. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, so it’s worth it to put in some study time.
HOW MUCH CBD DO I USE?
For our CBD oils, we recommend using a full dropper, or 1 milliliter, of CBD oil. When it comes to the CBD Apidermis, use as much as you need. Cover the intended area with a thin layer of product—that way you aren’t wasting any.
WHO CAN USE CBD?
Although CBD products are widely used, we always recommend consulting your doctor before trying a new product, especially if you are pregnant, taking medications, or breastfeeding. While CBD shouldn’t have too much of an effect on any medications you might be taking, you never know how it might react. Call your doctor to see if they would have any concerns.
