CBD FAQ

What is CBD (Cannabidiol)?

Cannabidiol are naturally occurring fatty compounds found in the stalks, leaves & flowers of cannabis Sativa plants. Hemp-based CBD extracted from legal grown hemp plants is the non-intoxicating cannabinoid (containing less than 0.3 percent THC) that we use to produce all of our GRN CBD products. The study of the positive benefits and potential side effects of Cannabinoids is extensive and ongoing. Always consult your doctor or health professional before adding CBD to your health and wellness routine. Visit CBD.io for more in depth information in the CBD Marketplace Blog.

Is CBD Legal? Do I need a medical cannabis or marijuana card to purchase?

Yes, CBD is legal in all 50 states. GRN CBD products contain only legal hemp-based CBD, which can be legally purchased anywhere in the U.S.A without a doctor’s prescription or medical cannabis card. Nevertheless, we recommend you consult your doctor or health professional, as well as to check your local laws to confirm that CBD is legal in your region.

Will CBD show up on a drug test?

While GRN CBD products are manufactured from legal grown hemp plants containing less than 0.3% THC, there are still trace amounts of THC. As a result, there is no guarantee CBD users, despite not experiencing any intoxicating effects, won’t test positive for a drug test for THC. We recommend that you consult a doctor or employer if potential drug testing is a concern. 

Will CBD get me high?

A common question for first time CBD buyers ask is whether or not you can get high on CBD.  The straight forward answer is NO. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabis compound, and it does not cause any of the mind-altering "stoned" feelings like its cannabis sibling THC. You can rest assured that CBD is non-intoxicating.

How long until you feel the effects of CBD?

To be clear, there is no “high” associated with the consumption of CBD. Effects of CBD will differ for every person depending on the level, quality and amount of CBD taken, as well as individual weight and overall body mass. We recommend that you begin with a reputable, third-party lab tested brand like GRN CBD and start with smaller doses of CBD and then gradually increase overtime until you reach your desired results. 

How much CBD is right for me?

Because each individual’s metabolism and body structure is unique, there is not a predetermined dose that can be clearly predicted for everyone. It is recommended to consult a doctor or health professional to determine an adequate amount for your body and lifestyle, and then gradually adjust as needed to reach your desired relief. There are also numerous ways to consume CBD, for more information visit our blog article, "What are the best ways to take CBD?"

What’s the difference between Marijuana Plants & Hemp Plants?

While they hail from the same plant family, marijuana and hemp develop contrasting levels of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the illegal, psychotropic cannabinoid. Both are classified as cannabis sativa plants, but in accord with the Agricultural Act of 2014, legal hemp plants that we use to produce GRN CBD contain less than 0.3 percent THC.

What is (are) Cannabinoid(s)?

Cannabinoids are the natural molecular composites found in Cannabis sativa plants as well as many other plant species including Coneflower (Echinacea). Cannabinoids are also naturally produced inside our bodies and work in conjunction with our immune and central nervous system. Categorized as fatty compounds, the study of the positive benefits of Cannabinoids is extensive and ongoing.
