WHAT IS CBD?
CBD, short for Cannabidiol (Can-a-bid-i-ol), is a chemical compound from the cannabis plant. It's a naturally occurring substance that's used in products like oils and edibles to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm. Unlike its cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it's not psychoactive, so DOES NOT cause a high like its counterpart, THC. It comprises up to 40% of the plant and is one of over 60 plus compounds found in cannabis. CBD and THC are the highest concentrations of the plant. Our bodies are made up of an endocannabinoid system and use cannabinoids to maintain healthy cells.
WHAT IS CBD OIL?
CBD oil is derived from cannabis plants that have high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) while having low levels of THC. At Herbal Zen, many of our CBD oils always have 0% THC. These extracts can then be used in paste form or mixed with other oils such as hemp seed oil, to lower the viscosity of the extract. The cannabidiol (CBD) content of CBD oil varies tremendously since manufacturers use a varying assortment of cannabis plants and preparation techniques. Many of our CBD oils contain a high concentration of CBD and NO 0% THC.
HOW IS OUR CBD OIL MANUFACTURED?
Our Hemp is grown organically in Colorado. At Sacred Leaf we use cold pressed CO2 extraction methods and we refine the best industrial hemp plants to a pure, zero-THC product for the safety of our customers.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP & MARIJUANA?
We’d like to clear something up. As the two main ingredients in the cannabis plant, it can be easy to confuse CBD and THC. But other than both being called cannabinoids, they are not the same thing. High levels of THC are commonly found in the popular plant but less so in the case of CBD. It makes sense, then, that THC can send you soaring on a high while CBD is reassuringly non-psychoactive. Disappointing to recreational users, perhaps, but brilliant news for the thousands of people looking to benefit from its proposed curative properties without enduring unwanted side effects.
IS CBD OIL LEGAL?
CBD Oil comes from industrial hemp and is completely legal to buy in all 50 states of the USA. There is no need for a prescription or medical card to purchase hemp CBD. What we sell is strictly GMO-free, organic, vegan and 100 percent natural with every ingredient extracted from organic hemp within the USA. Our protected plants are all handpicked, sunshade-dried, naturally crushed and processed in watertight vessels with absolutely no risk of contamination.
HOW SHOULD I STORE MY CBD? WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE?
For the best shelf life please store in a cool dark area to ensure you don't lose any potency. Don’t allow to sit in direct sunlight. CBD has a 1-year shelf life if properly stored.
WILL I FAIL A DRUG TEST IF I TAKE CBD PRODUCTS?
The hemp oil in our product contains CBD which is a LEGAL cannabinoid from hemp. Our products are tested and contain no amounts (parts per billion) of THC that COULD show up on a drug screen. While some of our products contain the very least amount of THC (the legal amount to sell across the nation), many Herbal Zen products contain 0% THC.
WHAT IS THE BEST METHOD OF USE?
For our dietary supplements, we can only recommend them for internal consumption. If you don’t like the flavor of the oil supplements, you can mix with something sweet like apple sauce or honey to cut through the flavor. Oils are to be taken sublingually and held under your tongue for 60-90 seconds before being swallowed.
WILL I GET HIGH?
No. CBD doesn’t contain the same psychoactive properties as THC meaning it can be ingested without the side effects usually associated with marijuana or cannabis. So it’s not hard to see why it’s fast becoming a popular addition to people’s daily and dietary supplements.
Americans Have Been Misled About Hemp Facts
The cannabis plant species can be grown as hemp (which has a weak amount of natural THC — the widely known psychoactive property) or marijuana (which over centuries has been selectively bred for higher and higher THC ). Hemp has been grown for over 5,000 years for its fiber – used for rope, twine, fabric and so on. Since at least 1500 BC, hemp has been widely used as medicine. Many scholars believe that the gall and vinegar, or myrrhed wine, offered to Jesus immediately after the crucifixion was, in all probability, a preparation of hemp. Queen Victoria used hemp extracts for menstrual cramps and anxiety. Her reign from 1837-1901 paralleled the explosive growth of hemp-based medicines. From 1842 to 1900, cannabis made up half of all medicines sold. From 1850 to 1937, the U.S. Pharmacopeia listed cannabis as the primary medicine to treat more than 100 separate illnesses or diseases.
