The hype around CBD continues to grow and so does the curiosity about this cannabinoid. The curiosity and lack of knowledge about CBD have led to many myths and misconceptions. In this article, we’ll look at 10 of the most frequently asked questions about CBD. This brief FAQ will help to resolve any doubts in your mind and educate you about CBD.

What the heck is CBD anyways?

CBD is one of many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD stands for cannabidiol. It can be sourced from cannabis sativa as well as industrial hemp. Most CBD products on the market come from industrial hemp.

  

Will CBD get me intoxicated?

No. Industrial hemp contains very low levels (about 0.3%) of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) so CBD sourced from hemp is non-psychoactive. This means it won’t make you feel intoxicated.

Will CBD make me fail drug test?

No. CBD contains very low levels of THC. And most drug tests are made for testing for THC levels and not CBD.

Is it important to consult a doctor before taking CBD?

yes, especially if you are taking CBD for a serious illness like sleeping disorder, diabetes or depression. A doctor will help to determine the proper dosage of CBD that you should be taking.

What is the difference between full-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate?

Full spectrum CBD contains all the other cannabinoids and terpenes found in the hemp plant. CBD isolate, on the other hand, contains only CBD.  

So is CBD isolate better than full spectrum CBD?

No. Both products have health benefits. Deciding which one to buy depends on your preference and the condition you are trying to treat.

Apart from CBD Oil, is CBD available in different product forms as well?

Yes. You will find many other CBD products on the market including capsules, creams, sprays, vape liquids, tinctures, oils, beverages and even CBD-infused food.

Are hemp oil and CBD oil two different things?  

Although both are sourced from hemp plant, they are certainly two different things. Hemp oil is extracted from the seed of the plant. On the other hand, CBD oil is extracted from the flowers, leaves, and stalks.

Is buying and selling CBD products legal in the U.S.?

The 2018 Farm Bill made the growing of hemp and production of hemp products legal in the U.S. However, many states are yet to ratify their laws relating to hemp and CBD.

How much CBD should I take?

There is no straightforward answer to this question. It depends on several factors including your weight, health and the type of CBD product you are using.
