What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the primary molecules that give the hemp plant its distinct scent. Like other essential oils, CBD exhibits therapeutic properties. Studies on CBD show this hemp-based compound promotes balance throughout the body. That is why millions have turned to CBD to promote wellness.
What is Hemp?
Hemp plants are male members of the Cannabis sativa family. Plants under the Cannabis umbrella have unique chemical compounds known as cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are responsible for the therapeutic properties in hemp.
Hemp has a wide range of cannabinoids, with CBD being one of the predominant. However, hemp has a low level of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The hemp plant has less than 0.3% THC. Otherwise, it would be classified as the female cousin of hemp, marijuana.
What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is the aromatic chemicals extracted from the hemp plant. Studies confirm the benefits of CBD are heightened in the presence of other cannabinoids. To get increased potency and bioavailability, opt for full spectrum CBD oil. Full spectrum means the entire plant (seeds, stems, and leaves) was used, enriching the oil in plant-based minerals.
Will CBD Make Me Feel High?
No. CBD is non-psychotropic. Therefore, you can use CBD while you drive, work, or babysit.
Is CBD Legal?
Yes. CBD is legal in all 50 states. It is derived from hemp and exhibits no psychoactive abilities. If you purchase your CBD in a state where medical or recreational marijuana is legal, you may want to check your packaging before traveling. In states where marijuana is legal, they may use THC in their formula. This would make that particular oil illegal in some states.
Is there THC in your CBD?
Our formula has no THC. Hempful Blends products are formulated using organic hemp. Naturally, hemp is already low in THC. However, we go the extra mile and remove all traces of this psychoactive molecule. Our zero-THC blend allows you to travel to all 50 states without worry. This peace of mind includes the airport!
Will I Fail a Drug Test if I Take CBD?
No. Drug tests don’t search for a legal substance like CBD. Companies that administer drug tests tend to look for THC, which is in marijuana. With that being said, check your label to make sure there is no THC listed as an active ingredient. This concern is why we remove THC from our formula. You can use Hempful Blends without worry over failing a drug test.
What are the Benefits of Using CBD?
The great thing about CBD is that it’s a versatile supplement. Benefits of CBD include:
- Pain Relief
- Appetite Suppression
- Anti-Inflammatory Properties
- Antioxidative Capabilities
- Promotes Relaxation & Calmness
- Boosts Mood
- Brings Balance to System
- Improves Focus
As you can see, CBD covers a lot of ground. Its cell rejuvenating and antioxidative properties makes CBD a great part of your beauty regimen. However, its pain relieving and sleep-regulating qualities also make it a viable form of therapy for people of all ages. Lastly, its brain-boosting functions and mood-altering capabilities exhibit the breadth of CBD’s potential. These benefits are all in thanks to the communication between CBD and our endocannabinoid system.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
Our endocannabinoid system is a roadmap of neurotransmitters and cell receptors. Cannabinoid receptors live on cells within our system. These receptors have tiny hairs on them that act as a thermometer for the entire body. When inflammations pop up in the system, it triggers these receptors. Reactions of receptors alter physiological processes down to a cellular level based on the signals they release.
How Does CBD Work?
When you use CBD products, cannabinoids will enter your bloodstream. These molecules intercept the impulses sent out by receptors. CBD finds the troubled receptors and stimulates their nerves. This action changes the message being relayed to the system. When the brain receives a new, calming signal we no longer experience symptoms such as racing thoughts, itchy skin, or throbbing joints.
How Do You Use CBD?
There are many ways to use CBD. It’s a matter of preference and the type of relief you are looking for.
Here are some of the most popular methods:
- Softgels - Convenient Gel Capsule. Our Softgels are formulated using microemulsion technology. We have the smallest CBD particles on the market, allowing cannabinoids access to more areas of your system.
- Tinctures - CBD extract used sublingually. Place your dose under the tongue and allow the capillaries to bind to CBD. Swallow to digest the remaining cannabinoids.
- Vaping - Vapor inhaled through a pen. Most efficient way to use CBD; works sublingually and is digested.
- Edibles - CBD is infused in baked goods and beverages. This method takes the longest to feel the effects, but they will last for prolonged periods
- Topicals - Cosmetic creams and lotions. Our skin is equipped with its own endocannabinoid system. With topicals, CBD penetrates the epidermis. Use this method to target inflammation at your source of pain.
How Long Do the Effects of CBD Last?
How long the effects of CBD lasts in your system depends on many variables. You must take into account your size, what you’ve eaten, how much CBD you’ve used, and the method of supplementation.
You should feel the effects of sublingual methods such as vaping and tinctures quicker. Results can happen as soon as 20 to 30 minutes. Whereas, digesting your CBD may take from a half hour to an hour. Experiencing the benefits of your CBD oil could span over four to six hours.
Do I Need a Prescription to Order CBD?
No. There is only one prescription drug with CBD in it. This drug is Epidolex and is used for severe cases of epilepsy. Otherwise, CBD should be seen as a supplement. Like any change to your health routine, consult a physician before using CBD.
Are There Any Side Effects to CBD?
In cases where people consumed a lot of CBD, they did report feeling a bit tired. Otherwise, there are no known side effects of CBD.
Can You Overdose from CBD?
There is currently no recorded history of anyone overdosing or dying from using CBD, hemp products, or full spectrum CBD oil.
Is your CBD non-GMO?
All of our products are crafted using organic, all-natural ingredients.
Are Your Products Gluten-Free?
Gluten and lactose are the two most common allergens. Including them in our formula only creates more hurdles for our CBD. That is why all of our products are gluten and dairy-free.
Are Your Products Tested for Purity?
CBD is currently unregulated. That means many companies can get away with putting an inferior product out there. We take pride in the products we produce. This pride pushes us to remain transparent about our process.
Every batch that Hempful Blends formulates is tested for its purity. Plus, a third-party laboratory verifies the validity of our distributors each month. These checks-and-balances ensures an honest operation from top to bottom.
How Should I Store CBD Oil?
Like many supplements, CBD is best stored in a dark, cooler area. Light excites molecules in supplements, causing them to burn off. To prevent light damage, a pantry or medicine cabinet would suffice.
Excess heat can also cause therapeutic molecules to dissipate. For those who live in warmer climates, you can store your CBD oil in the fridge. In the case your oil gets too thick from the cooler temps, just run the bottle under warm water prior to use.
Why Should I Choose Hempful Blends?
You should choose Hempful Blends because we care. Our products are formulated using only the highest quality, organic ingredients. We create full spectrum oil so that your supplements are full of cannabinoids. By using these practices, Hempful Blends is one of the most potent and bioavailable CBD products out there.
