What is CBD?
CBD (the chemical compound Cannabidiol) comes from the Cannabis sativa L. plant. This compound has been shown to have amazing health benefits and does not make you feel “high.” Anecdotally, CBD has proved to counteract the high you get from THC; THC (or Tetrahydrocannabinol) being the compound that produces the euphoric “high” for which cannabis is known. Since CBD is not psychoactive, it helps quell inflammation, seizures, spasms, sleeplessness, psychosis, pain, anxiety, and many more ailments without intoxicating the patient.
How does CBD work?
There are cannabinoid receptors found in all mammals. We have thousands of these receptors throughout our body, some are concentrated in the nervous system, while others cluster around major organs. All of these receptors make up what we call the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is one of the greatest neurotransmitter systems in the body, helping manage our mood, motor control, sleep, reproduction, pain, bone development, and immune functions.
Is CBD FDA-approved?
As of now, the FDA does not approve any medical statements about cannabis, and that includes even the isolated CDB compound. CBD products are considered a dietary supplement, but the FDA cannot approve of anything that is prohibited by the federal government. Until we experience more widespread legalization efforts, Cannabis’ status as a controlled substance in the United States remains. For now, the industry relies on anecdotal evidence from the growing number of CBD users over time.
Can CBD help me?
Yes, we honestly believe it can. We have personally seen it help with insomnia, PTSD, anxiety, inflammation, painful joints, and many more ailments typically treated with conventional pharmaceuticals. While no one at THECBDSHED practices medicine, we are users of our products, and the healing properties in CBD are just undeniable. Please, ask us about any of our products—we’re happy to share our personal experiences with you.
What is CBD oil?
CBD oil is a base oil that contains significant amounts of cannabidiol. Our CBD products and extracts are derived from industrial hemp, which is considered CBD-rich hemp oil. Other names for CBD oil are hemp derived CBD oil, CBD-rich cannabis oil, or hemp extract. Whatever you want to call it, when it comes from THECBDSHED you know you are getting real deal CBD wellness products. CBD oil can be ingested if it is made with food grade oil (MCT oil, coconut oil, sunflower seed oil, etc.) and then there are CBD oil products that can be applied topically.
Will i fail a drug test if I use CBD oil?
No you will not fail a normal drug test. From the stand point of a guarantee 100% we cannot say yes. Most drug test are looking for THC, Methamphetamine, and etc. If you are submitting to a drug test that tests for all Cannabinoid use CBD will show up. Although this does not necessarily mean a failed test. We have been told Military and some DOT type tests will look for ALL cannabinoid use and that includes CBD. Keep in mind CBD is not an illegal substance and is not a substance that will come up on 99% of tests.
Is CBD oil the same thing as the hemp oil from Whole Foods?
No. The hemp seed oil you can see in your local health food store (and, actually, a growing number of stores) is purely nutritional.
Standard hemp oil is produced by cold pressing the seeds, whereas our hemp CBD products are made from a full plant extraction with many components not typically found in the seeds. Hemp seed oil is considered to be an ideal nutritive food, but it does not contain the cannabinoids and terpenes that hemp CBD products (oil or otherwise) do.
Are your CBD oil products similar to Rick Simpson Oil?
Not entirely because RSHO is usually using marijuana, whereas our products are made from a different form of cannabis called industrial hemp. Our industrial hemp extracts contain a much higher content of non-psychoactive CBD than one produced through the Rick Simpson method. Rick Simpson Oil is made from marijuana, which makes it a restricted substance in most states and too many versions of it are not tested for pesticides, mold, and other contaminants. Not only are THECBDSHED products tested for contaminants (metals, pesticides, bacteria, etc.), but they are 100 percent legal and available to anyone in the United States.
I’ve seen “synthetic CBD” for sale at my local health store is your product the same?
We do not sell or endorse any synthetic CBD products. There are many articles available online that do a better job than we can do here of explaining the potential dangers of synthetic cannabinoids. All THECBDSHED products are made from safely and organically grown hemp from Europe.
Which of your CBD products should I purchase?
Because we sell such a variety of CBD supplements, CBD oils, CBD extracts, and CBD topicals we can’t suggest any of our products without first knowing what you are looking for and what you have tried in the past. We are not qualified to recommend specific products as a cure or treatment for any disease. What we can do is help you make a decision that is right for you. If it’s hemp extract that you are looking for, with no additional ingredients, then something like a tincture or gel capsule may be right up your alley. However, if you need fast-acting effects, then then Charlotte’s Web vape pen is a better fit. But if it’s pet-friendly CBD you’re after then we have an array of treats and tinctures for your fur baby.
I have heard of CBD products are safe for pets?
Yes, We here at THECBDSHED are huge supporters of CBD for pets. Anecdotally, CBD is used with success to alleviate separation anxiety in dogs and cats.
