Frequently Asked Questions

About CBD

Yes! Hemp CBD was legalized in the United States in 2018. All of our products use verified legally grown hemp from American farmers.

No. CBD does not make you feel high. Our full-spectrum CBD products contain tiny amounts of THC that won’t make you feel high.

Absolutely! We verify the safety of every product we carry. All products have been lab tested by reputable 3rd parties, to ensure what’s on the label is in the container.

CBD Certificates Of Analysis

A certificate of analysis, or COA, is a lab report from an accredited laboratory that analyzes the amount of various substances in the CBD product.

Not all COAs are equal.

Some COAs test for a limited amount of cannabinoids and harmful substances, where other COAs simply test for THC% and CBD %.

Some COAs test the CBD extract before it’s used for production, where others test the finished product.

The ideal COA should contain:

  • Finished products – Testing for finished products, after manufacturing.
  • Cannabinoid potency – the cannabinoid profile tests for potency and purity of CBD, THC and other cannabinoids. Basic tests will show CBD and THC, where more extensive tests also measure CBG, CBN and other cannabinoids with potential benefits.
  • Terpenes – terpenes are found in hemp plants, are responsible for the unique aroma of hemp, and may have therapeutic benefits.
  • Pesticides – this data shows whether the product is contaminated with dangerous pesticides from the hemp farming process.
  • Heavy metals –   this data shows us whether the products are compliant with Prop 65, which limits the amount of acceptable heavy metals in consumable products.
  • Residual solvents – this test is really important because it measures the safety and quality of the product. Harmful solvents may be introduced during hemp extraction, and these solvents may be present in the finished product.

While every data point in a COA can be valuable, there are three data points that are most important.

  1. THC – THC content needs to be less than 0.3%. Anything above 0.3% is federally illegal under the Controlled Substances Act.
  2. CBD – CBD content should accurately reflect the product label.
  3. Contaminants – the finished CBD product should be free of contaminants, including pesticides, heavy metals and residual solvents.

CBD Dosage

Start with a max of 10mg CBD per day and adjust your daily dosage as necessary.

For stress, we recommend starting with this CBD soft gel.

For sleep, we recommend starting with these CBD gummies.

For pain, we recommend starting with this CBD roll-on cooling stick.

For CBD beginners, we recommend starting with ingestible products that contain a low dose of 10mg CBD or less. 10mg is a good starting dose for beginners, and dosage can be adjusted in 10mg increments.

CBD helps calm the mind so we can relax. Many people say they feel an absence; an absence of a racing mind, an absence of worrying thoughts, and an absence of feeling stressed out.

CBD by itself does not help you sleep, but calming the mind can allow us to relax and sleep better. CBD with melatonin can help with sleep.

CBD can be combined with pain relief products like menthol or capsaicin, for either a cooling or warming pain relieving sensation.

Some of our customers feel the effects of CBD the first time they try it, and others don’t feel the effects until 7 days or longer. 

If you’re not seeing your desired effect, increase your daily dosage by 10mg. Continue with this dosage for 3-5 days. If you’re not feeling your desired effect, increase your dosage by 10mg. Repeat until you reach your desired effect.

All CBD products are great for stress, so the best CBD product comes down to preference.

CBD oils are recommended if you’re looking for a fast-acting option with great dosage flexibility.

CBD ingestibles are perfect if you’re looking for simple dosage and long-lasting effects.

CBD topicals are great for targeted pain relief, or for a more mellow option for stress relief.  

CBD patches are for general relief, and are a great mess-free option on the go.

CBD topicals and CBD transdermals with menthol or capsaicin are best for pain relief.

Topical CBD: we recommend starting with this CBD roll-on cooling stick.

CBD oils and ingestibles with melatonin are best for sleep. If melatonin makes you feel tired the next day, try a CBD oil or ingestible without melatonin. The stress relief from CBD without melatonin can calm the mind and promote better sleep.

CBD may interact with other medications. Consult your doctor if you are interested in CBD and are currently taking medications.

Most people do not experience any side effects, but some people report feeling tired or jittery from CBD.
