THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS PRESENTED FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. MEDICAL MARIJUANA INC. PROVIDES THIS INFORMATION TO PROVIDE AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS OF CANNABINOIDS. LINKS TO THIRD PARTY WEBSITES DO NOT CONSTITUTE AN ENDORSEMENT OF THESE ORGANIZATIONS BY MEDICAL MARIJUANA INC. AND NONE SHOULD BE INFERRED.
1. WHAT IS CBD?
CBD or cannabidiol is just one of over 85 cannabinoids discovered so far in the different types of cannabis, including marijuana and hemp. CBD is present in more significant quantities in hemp than marijuana, and because it is non-psychoactive, CBD is widely regarded as the cannabinoid with the most health potential by researchers. We suggest you do your own research on CBD and cannabinoids.
2. ARE YOUR PRODUCTS LEGAL?
CBD from hemp is considered a dietary supplement and is legal to purchase to all 50 states. Our CBD Hemp Oil is an all natural product, and contains less than 0.3% THC by weight and is thus exempt from the Federal Controlled Substances Act.
Marijuana laws become less uniform on a global level. If you’d like to know if CBD hemp oil is legal in your country, contact us or check with your local authorities.
3. WILL YOUR PRODUCTS GET ME HIGH?
No, they won’t. Our products are all made with high-CBD, low-THC hemp oil. CBD is non-psychoactive, and THC, marijuana’s psychoactive compound, is only present in trace amounts – not nearly enough to cause the high associated with marijuana.
4. DOES CANNABIDIOL (CBD) AND OTHER NATURAL HEMP BASED CONSTITUENTS SHOW UP ON A DRUG TEST?
Most workplace drug screens and tests target Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and do not detect the presence of cannabidiol (CBD) or other legal natural hemp based constituents. However, studies have shown that eating hemp foods and oils can, in rare cases, cause confirmed positive results when screening urine and blood specimens. Accordingly, if you are subject to any form of drug testing, we recommend (as does the United States Military) that you do not ingest our products and consult with your healthcare, drug screening/testing company, or employer.
5. Does CBD have any adverse side effects?
What about drug interactions?
CBD is a very safe substance, but patients taking other medications should check with their doctor about drug interactions, which are more likely when consuming high doses of single-molecule CBD products.
6. ARE YOUR PRODUCTS SAFE?
Yes. All our hemp crops are grown free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides, so our quality starts with our hemp plants.
From the time our hemp oil is harvested to the manufacturing and shipping of our products, we test our hemp oil multiple times to ensure accuracy in potency information and to check for contaminants like pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, and mold, as well as cannabinoid content.
We also use a supercritical CO2 method when we extract our hemp oil, instead of harsh solvents. CO2 is a much healthier choice than other potential solvents and is “generally regarded as safe” (GRAS) by the FDA.
7. DO I NEED A MEDICAL CARD TO BUY YOUR PRODUCTS?
No. Because our products are dietary supplements, there is no need to obtain a doctor’s recommendation or to live in a medical marijuana state to have our products delivered to your door.
However, before beginning any new supplement routine, it is suggested you consult your doctor.
8. HOW MUCH CBD SHOULD I TAKE?
This is a difficult question to answer because our customers find differences in their personally optimal serving size. We recommend you start low and work your way up to larger amounts if desired. We also strongly recommend that whatever product you choose, you consume it to completion before making your decision about if CBD hemp oil is right for you.
If you have questions about which CBD product may be best, please contact our customer service department.
9. WILL YOUR PRODUCTS CURE/TREAT MY…?
Because our CBD hemp oil products are categorized as dietary supplements in the United States, we comply with the FDA’s DSHEA guidelines and cannot endorse any specific medical benefits of CBD or our hemp oil.
We encourage you to browse the thousands of reputable studies regarding CBD published online, and talk with your doctor to see if a CBD supplement is right for you.
10. WHICH CBD HEMP OIL PRODUCT IS RIGHT FOR ME?
This will very much depend on your own personal preference, desired CBD quantities, and preferred means of application. Typically, CBD products fall under one of two categories: topicals, which are applied externally, or dietary supplements, which are taken internally.
Medical Marijuana, Inc. has a wide selection of products featuring different flavors, potencies, and consistencies.
