Questions & Answers about Hemp (CBD) Oil
A1. The FDA does not allow us to make any claims about what CBD Hemp Oil can do or may do for you. But, we CAN pass along that we have numerous customers taking our products regularly for various reasons. While CBD doesn’t help everyone with their condition, we have many people who return regularly for reorders. The only way you’ll know if it will help you is to try it. (If you need further advice, your doctor or medical practitioner might be able to help.)
A3: When taking enough, it generally only takes about 20-30 minutes for it become effective. Most people when first starting out, do not know what to expect and often overlook that it is beginning to help their condition. Since there is no “high” to report, most people don’t know that it is doing anything. Only after a while do they realize that any pain they may have had is no longer there or not as intense. The “feeling” is so subtle that usually, all that is able to be identified is a subtle calming. After several uses, many people have reported that they now notice it “taking the edge” off minutes after administering. But, for most newcomers, they expect a huge change and its just not like that, unless it’s being used for pain management. A gentle release of the pain is usually fairly noticeable when taking these products in proper amounts.
A6: When using the drops, the best way to take them is sublingual. And, the easiest way to do this is by setting a spoon on a counter and dripping the desired number of drops (see Question/Answer #2 and #5 above) into the spoon. Then, by putting the spoon into your mouth, put the liquid under your tongue for about 90 seconds, then swallow. For those who prefer to take their drops in a drink, this can be done. However, because the stomach acids work very quickly to break down the cannabinoids, it is only partially effective. When taking in drinks/foods, we recommend taking approximately twice as much as if you’re taking it sublingually.
A7: We are not doctors and we are not knowledgeable about your particular health condition, so you have to get medical advice from your practitioner. However, what we can say is that typically, its virtually impossible to take too much. We use the following analogy: Can you eat too much spinach? Well, the answer is yes. You can. But, you’d have to eat such an unimaginable amount that its not realistic to think you could truly eat too much spinach. The same holds true for these products. Its not realistic to think you could take too much, but of course, at some level it would be possible. (Again, please consult your physician regarding your specific situation)
A8: Since we are not doctors and we do not your know individual situation, we cannot provide this advice. We CAN tell you that many of our customers have significantly reduced, and even completely got off of, prescription medicines after using these products. (Again, please consult your physician regarding your specific situation)
A9: Rest assured, the products we sell are legal in all 50 States and approximately 40 countries worldwide. It does not require any prescription nor medical card in the United States. If you are in another country, please check your local laws. Many states have begun legalizing CBD Oil from Marijuana; and some states have voted it down. While CBD is CBD and it doesn’t matter whether it comes from marijuana or hemp for it to be effective, because marijuana has legal issues, CBD Oil from Marijuana may or may not be legal in your state. But, CBD Oil from Hemp IS LEGAL in all 50 states, regardless of your state’s laws on marijuana and marijuana CBD Oil.
A10: THC is the compound in cannabis that makes one “high”. The amount of THC in hemp is so negligible that we’re not aware of anyone ever reporting feeling “high”. Also, we have not heard of anyone becoming addicted to CBD Hemp Oil.
A11: We cannot administer medical advice. But, we can report that many toddlers are taking these products daily for many of the same medical conditions that teens and adults are using it for. As well, we are aware of numerous pets who take these products daily without any ill effects.
A12: The answer to this question lies in the fact that there are many steps and much plant material required to produce the end product. First, a fairly substantial amount of hemp has to be grown, which takes months, to produce enough seeds and stalk to produce a very small amount of hemp extract. Then, the extract has to be extensively tested to ensure its compound make up and its purity. The extract is then formulated into various forms of products, such as CBD Oil Drops or Vaporizer Oil and is sold to retailers. Each entity along the way needs to earn a fair profit for their efforts. By the time you have 4 or 5 entities involved, the cost level naturally increases to what you see on the market today.
The best way to compare prices is to break each product down to a “cost per milligram of CBD”. By doing this, you can then start to compare the prices of the products. Also, keep in mind that various brands focus on various attributes. For instance, at Highland Pharms, we focus on NOT ONLY CBD, but the FULL SPECTRUM of cannabinoids so our customers get a well rounded blend of organic compound for the best results.
A14: First and foremost, the FDA will not allow us to recommend anything nor even say that CBD will or may help with any particular condition. This is unfortunate, but true. And, with the information from Question 4 above, you probably know by now, its really more a matter of preference. If CBD will provide the level of well being you are seeking, for most people, the product type doesn’t generally matter.
A15: You can most certainly call. However, there is not much more the FDA will allow us to say that’s not already on this page or the product pages.
