CBD: What You Need to Know.
CBD is a cannabinoid found in hemp that, unlike THC in marijuana, does not make you “high.”
It can provide a sense of well-being and is helpful for anxiety, inflammation, insomnia, addiction, aches and pains, and other ailments. It is safe and non-addictive.
What is Hemp and How is it Different from Marijuana?
8,000 BC has even been found.
It’s used to make everything from food to paper and clothing. The U.S. just passed a farm bill that makes growing hemp legal throughout the United States, so hemp is about to explode in popularity as a cash crop in the U.S.
How Do I Pick the Best Brand and Product for Me?
For the consumer, being informed about the latest on CBD is helpful because it’s a highly unregulated market, with many sellers peddling misleading labels and cheap ingredients.
What is the Difference between Hemp CBD Extract and Hemp Seed Oil?
CBD from the stalks, leaves and flowers of hemp.
For instance, we carry Barlean’s products, a company that uses high-tech
manufacturing and has been a leading maker of nutritious flaxseed and omega fatty acid oils for nearly 30 years.

What is Full-Spectrum?
In full-spectrum products, these compounds work together in harmony. They greatly boost CBD’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Full-spectrum CBD oil can contain trace amounts of THC.

What are Terpenes?
Terpenes are fragrant compounds found in the essential oils of many plants, including hemp. Terpenes bond with cannabinoids like CBD to super-charge them. The result is a boost in CBD’s anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and pain-relieving effects.
Full-spectrum CBD products use the best extraction methods, such as C02 extraction, considered to be the gold standard and most expensive process. The C02 helps eliminate toxins and solvents for an ultra-purified product. Also, this way beneficial terpenes aren’t lost.
Does CBD Show on a Drug Test?
Some CBD oils carried by CBD Remedies have no THC, and the rest have only trace amounts. It is possible, although unlikely, that this could result in a false positive drug test. This is most likely if you regularly take high doses of CBD. The result on tests is similar to those who eat poppy seeds, culinary hemp oil or hemp protein.
It is very unlikely that a person would test positive after more detailed testing in
a second round. If this is still a concern, discontinue use if you know a drug test is coming up. However, it's important to know that each person’s metabolism and body weight are different. When in doubt, check with your doctor.

How Do I Take CBD?
bloodstream immediately. Gummies are tasty and convenient for when you’re on-the-go.
The most common way to take CBD is sublingual (below the tongue) in drops, using a tincture.
a better option. CBD has a noticeable “plant” taste that is often masked with flavorings.
What is Water-Soluble CBD and How Do I Add it to Food or Drinks?
A form of CBD that is expected to grow in popularity is water-soluble CBD. It is
especially good in food or drinks. They blend in beautifully whether you’re making cocktails or smoothies.
In contrast, oil-based CBD made with MCT (coconut oil) or hempseed oil will float on top. But water-soluble CBD will disappear completely, without separating.
For instance, we carry NeuroXPF here at CBD Remedies, which is a water-based tincture. Our Hemplucid products are also water-soluble. These brands help you absorb more CBD into your system because our bodies are mostly water.
Some of the new water-based CBD products use cutting-edge nanotechnology for faster absorption, making it more bio-available. This may well be the “next big thing” in CBD.
What is the Suggested Dosage of CBD?
CBD Remedies carries only the finest products, and many of them suggest a dosage right on the package.
If you’re new to CBD, start with a smaller dose and work your way
up until you find the most effective dosage. An average dose might range from 10-50mg of CBD.
However, higher doses also seem to be well tolerated. Bear in mind that
each person’s metabolism and weight will determine the dose.
Some may notice the benefits of CBD right away, while others may need to take it for a longer period before the results kick in.
Does CBD Interfere With Other Medications?
If you are taking medications and/or have a health condition, please consult with a doctor before taking CBD. At CBD Remedies, we take your health very seriously. It’s helpful if you can find a doctor who has read up on CBD and understands its benefits and use.
Does CBD Have Side Effects?
At present, we’re not aware of the side effects of CBD. In our experience at our retail store serving many customers, we have not heard of any incidents of side effects. That being said, it’s always a good idea to discuss any concerns about health supplements with your doctor.
What is CBD Remedies’ Philosophy?
CBD is one of the biggest health supplement booms to hit the U.S. in decades. As a result, there are many poor-quality products flooding the market, which will only increase now that hemp has been legalized as a food crop.
At CBD Remedies, we have personally studied and carefully curated only the best products available on the market. And by personally, we mean in person.
Our resident expert, Adam Brewer, has visited farms where some of our products are grown, spoken personally with the manufacturers, and attended hemp conferences to discover the finest cutting-edge CBD products.
Adam makes recommendations for many products on our site. We are happy to provide lab test results for any product, and we only sell products that are regularly batch-tested for purity and potency.
In addition, through our blogs, educational seminars, and community outreach programs, we are dedicated to educating consumers about CBD. Instead of catering to sales volume, our goal is quality every time.
How Long Does CBD Take to Get Into Your System?
This can depend on several things: your health, whether you’ve eaten recently, dosage, and method of taking CBD. CBD that is placed under the tongue or by inhaling enters the bloodstream right away.
Edibles have to be digested before the effects occur, after around 60 minutes. Creams, lotions and salves have a topical effect, soothing the skin and joints in a slower absorption process.
How Long Does CBD Last In Your Body?
Age, body weight, and the overall health of a person can cause this to vary. However, some studies indicate that much of the CBD is eliminated in the body after a day or two, with some CBD remaining for an additional 3-5 days.
Even trace amounts should generally be gone after 7 days. Heavy and regular use can extend the presence of trace amounts to 10 days or so.
How Does CBD Help Pets?
Pets have the same endocannabinoid system that humans do. CBD acts in similar ways in pets, helping to calm your pet and boost overall health.
CBD is a powerful natural supplement for joint pain, anxiety during separation or thunderstorms, and overall health.
We sell yummy pet chews that your pet will gobble up in flavors like beef
or fish. This makes it easy to control the dose.
Because pets’ bodies are smaller, make sure that you start with a smaller dose and work your way up. Go low and go slow.
At CBD Remedies, we sell the same lab-tested, organic, U.S.-grown products that their two-legged humans enjoy. When in doubt, please check with your vet to make sure CBD is a good choice for your four-legged friend.
Being Informed is Important. In a study of 84 CBD products sold by 31 companies online, blind testing found that only 31 percent contained the amount of CBD listed on the label.
Some contained contaminants and too-high amounts of THC. Without the finest extraction methods, CBD can contain toxins, solvents, or pesticides, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association.
You can also waste your money. If a product’s price is too low, it probably doesn’t contain much CBD, because CBD extraction is time-consuming and requires high tech scientific processes, manufacturing
Reputable companies such as those at CBD Remedies will state the concentration of CBD in their products. Higher quality products will use better methods such as C02 extraction to produce the CBD.
This results in full-spectrum oils of the highest quality, eliminating toxins, solvents and pesticides. The best brands own their own farms, instead of buying hemp from third-party sources.
