Frequently Asked Questtions

Cannabis is a flowering plant from the Cannabaceae family used for a variety of things throughout history.  The 2018 Farm Bill classifies industrial hemp as cannabis that contains no more than .3% THC by dry weight. CBD, THC, CBG, CBC, are all abbreviations for the various cannabinoids found within the cannabis plant.  Cannabis produces over 100 different cannabinoids.  Some of these mimics the cannabinoid receptors produced in the human body, enabling us to use the plant for medicinal and therapeutic purposes.

Besides the legalization of THC and CBD, there are distinct differences in the way the body reacts to each component.  For example, THC is known for its intoxicating properties or the high feeling associated with smoking or ingesting cannabis.  THC produces a sense of euphoria because it mostly interacts with the cannabinoid receptors in the brain.  While on the other hand, CBD can lessen some of the intoxicating effects caused by THC.  CBD interferes with its ability to bind to the CB1 receptor in the brain. 


The full potential of how THC and CBD can help the human body has yet to be understood, and human clinical trials are limited.  However, due to its recent popularity and proven benefits, studies are taking place to help us better understand how cannabis interacts with the human body.   

In short, no, you cannot get high on CBD. There are products available on the market that have a combination of CBD and THC, but when you consume CBD-only products, they do not have intoxicating effects.

There is no need for a Prescription or Medical card to purchase hemp CBD. It is a natural constituent of the high CBD Hemp strains of the plant containing very low levels of THC. Having only trace amounts of THC, our hemp CBD oil is non-psychoactive and federally legal.

One of the most common reasons people take CBD is to help improve their mood. Scientists know that CBD activates the 5-HT1A serotonin receptor responsible for regulating mood and anxiety. Studies also show that CBD can cause neurogenesis, the creation of new brain cells, which is essentially helping the brain to find new ways of thinking and operating.

Autoimmune conditions affect approximately 24 million people in the United States. Autoimmune conditions are a collection of illnesses where the immune system, rather than fighting off external threats, starts to attack our own bodies. Types of autoimmune conditions include Rheumatoid Arthritis, Crohn’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and Diabetes type 1.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant with enormous therapeutic potential. Researchers are currently studying the effects of CBD on a wide range of conditions including chronic pain, insomnia, PTSD, anxiety, epilepsy, dementia and more.

Extensive preclinical research and some clinical studies have shown that CBD has strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral, and neuroprotective qualities.

Cannabidiol (CBD) has many health benefits, without producing the psychoactive, “euphoric” effects of THC. “Relaxing but not intoxicating” is how some of my patients have described the effect. That said, I did have one patient that felt that a low dose of CBD did make her feel high. This is why I recommend starting with very low dosages.

– CBD exhibits no effects on humans indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.

– To date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.

– Chronic use and high doses up to 1,500 mg/day of CBD are reportedly well tolerated in humans.

Cannabinoids (e.g., THC and CBD) are the chemical compounds secreted by cannabis flowers that can affect the human body. They work by imitating compounds our bodies naturally produce, called endocannabinoids, that affect nerve, brain and immune cell activity. 

Currently, there are two known primary cannabinoid receptors: CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are located in the central nervous system, and in some peripheral tissues. They affect appetite, muscle control, pain, cognition, thermoregulation, and our stress response. CB2 receptors are primarily found in immune cells, and at a lower density in the central nervous system. CB2 activation is associated with immune function and immune cell proliferation, inflammation, and pain. Although these two cannabinoid receptors have been studied relatively extensively, there are more cannabinoid receptors being examined.

Products infused with a crystalline CBD isolate, derived and extensively refined from industrial hemp, are available. But single-molecule CBD is thought to be less effective therapeutically than whole plant CBD-rich oil extract. The rich recipe of compounds in medicinal plants exerts healing effects through complementary action. This supports the idea of the “entourage effect”, where mixtures of cannabinoids, their co-occurring terpenes, and perhaps other molecules such as flavonoids and stilbenoids, have a greater positive effect than just CBD or THC alone.

Water-soluble forms of CBD are not naturally occurring products. The process of making a fat-soluble compound, such as CBD, soluble in water, involves a process called nano-emulsion. Nano-emulsion uses high frequency ultrasound to induce a process called cavitation, in which small, water soluble spheres (called liposomes) are formed. The CBD molecules are suspended in the liposomes which float in the water. Although some manufacturers make claims about how this form of CBD is “enhanced”, there is no data confirming this claim. I have not yet found a water-soluble CBD product that provides as much benefits as lipid-soluble CBD.

Most drug tests screen for the psychoactive compound THC, not cannabidiol (CBD). However, full-spectrum hemp extracts may contain trace amounts of THC, so could cause a positive result when screening urine and blood specimens, especially when taken at high doses. I recommend a prudent and cautious approach to taking CBD rich hemp extracts in the context of urine drug screens.

At low doses of CBD, less than 150mg total per day, it is unlikely that significant drug-herb interactions will occur. However it is always possible that drug-herb interactions can occur, and this is more likely the higher the dose. CBD and other plant cannabinoids can potentially interact with many pharmaceuticals by inhibiting the activity of cytochrome P450, a family of liver enzymes. If you are taking a medication where maintaining a certain blood level is critical- such as anti-seizure, anti-viral, blood-thinning medications- talk with your health care provider or pharmacist before trying CBD.

Unlike THC, CBD has negligible effects on appetite and satiety.

Typically CBD is not associated with many side effects but these have all been reported:
– Dry mouth
– Drowsiness
– Lightheadedness
– Rarely can cause feelings of mild intoxication

An effective dosage can range from as little as a 5mg of CBD per day up to 150mg per day. Make sure to start low and go slow. Take a few small doses over the course of the day rather than one big dose. Use the same dose for several days. Observe the effects and if necessary adjust the amount. Don’t overdo it.
