Is CBD oil legal?

FROM ANANDA - Yes. Our products are grown in Kentucky – the state that legalized the commercial growing of industrial hemp. We work closely with the State of Kentucky and the Department of Agriculture to ensure we are compliant with all existing laws regarding hemp extracts and byproducts.

Section 7606 of the federal law states that regardless of another federal law (including the Controlled Substances Act), if the growing and cultivation of industrial hemp is allowed under state law and overseen by the Department of Agriculture, then the product can be manufactured and sold as part of the state’s approved hemp pilot program.

Are there any side effects?

FROM ANANDA – Some of the side effects from CBD oil are dry mouth, low blood pressure, lightheadedness, drowsiness when taking high does, and inhibition of hepatic drug metabolism and decreased activity of p=glycoprotein.  Similar to the effects of eating grapefruit when on these medications.  For more information, please visit: https://anandahemp.com/faq/what-are-the-side-effects-of-cbd-oil-or-hemp-oil/


Are these pure CBD oils?

FROM GREEN ROADS - At Green Roads, we only extract CBD from hemp, defined as any variety of cannabis plant containing less than 0.3% THC by dry weight. Cannabinoids and terpenes are produced by tiny glands on the leaves and flowers of cannabis plants known as trichomes. The compounds produced by these trichomes give cannabis both its rich aroma and its nutraceutical effects. As CBD is isolated from the plant material and exits the high-pressure environment inside the extraction machine, all of the CO2 evaporates, because it’s no longer at a supercritical pressure. This leaves behind a solvent-free extract containing only the purest select phytocannabinoids and terpenes. For more information, please visit:   https://www.greenroadsworld.com/pages/green-roads-cbd-processing/ and https://www.greenroadsworld.com/what-is-cbd/

FROM ANANDA - We test our hemp extracts at every step of the process to ensure quality and consistency. By the time product reaches the shelf it has been tested at least 3 times for potency, contaminant, and quality. We use only notable, certified cannabis and food testing labs to verify the consistency of our product.  For more information, please visit: https://anandahemp.com/science/testing/


Where are these CBD oils sourced from?

CBD oils vs capsules - which one is better?

FROM GREEN ROADS - The most popular type of CBD product is sublingual CBD oils and tinctures, which include CBD isolate formulated into an oily base so that it can be dropped under the tongue. These products are ideal for rapid absorption and high bioavailability.

Another popular type of CBD product is edible snacks, beverages, and capsules, which can be swallowed like any other food or pill. These products are perfect for people who don’t need a high dose of CBD, or who are more comfortable with a traditional method of consumption like swallowing rather than sublingual administration.

Topical CBD products are ideal for local application to an affected area of skin, muscle, or joints. CBD applied topically tends to stay concentrated in the area where it was applied, unlike edible and sublingual CBD, which spreads throughout the entire body via the bloodstream.

We currently carry a variety of options of oils, edible snacks, capsules, beverages, and topicals. For more information, please visit: https://www.greenroadsworld.com/what-is-cbd/


How do I know this is a quality product and if it will work?

In short there are a few things reputable companies will have: certificate of analysis (COA), properly labeled bottles with the milligrams of active cannabinoids, and will be a full spectrum product vs only having the isolated molecule, CBD. The long answer is from Ananda Roads where they have a great blog post about this topic. For more information, please visit: https://anandahemp.com/cbd-oil-not-working-this-could-be-why/


Can you get you high & become addicted/ dependent on CBD oil?

FROM GREEN ROADS - No, CBD does not get you high. In fact, CBD works to counteract the psychoactive effects of THC, the cannabinoid responsible for the high feeling. CBD oil is non-addictive and you cannot overdose as a result of taking the oil. For more information, please visit: https://greenroadswellness.com/faq/


Will I fail a drug test after using CBD products?

FROM ANANDA – Short answer is maybe.  Because every drug test is looking for different cannabinoids & every person is different – results may vary.  Ananda’s official stance on their product: Our products do contain less than .3% THC and an array of other rare cannabinoids. Because of this, we CANNOT guarantee a negative drug test. If you are worried about passing a drug test for your employee or other reason, we do not recommend taking our products as there is a chance you will test positive. If you have any questions, please send an email to hello@anandahemp.com.  For the full answer, please visit https://anandahemp.com/will-cbd-oil-show-drug-test/
