Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-psychotropic cannabinoid compound meaning it does not affect a person's mental state. It does however possess excellent therapeutic properties.
Cannabinoids are chemicals that trigger the cannabinoid (and other) receptors in the brain and body. CBD specifically has strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasm, and neuro-protective properties.
One of the most crucially important qualities of CBD is its lack of psycho-activity. In layman’s terms, CBD won’t get you high.
CBD isolate is “pure CBD”. CBD molecules are separated from the rest of the compounds that are naturally occurring in the hemp plant. CBD isolate usually appears as a crystalline white powder. CBD from Ohio Apothecary is extracted from a CBD rich hemp plant. So, isolate based products contain no THC. This allows the user to enjoy the benefits of CBD without the worry of THC. All products from Ohio Apothecary are backed by a full third party Cannabinoid Profile Analysis for purity.
How long does it take for CBD to take effect?
The length of time it takes for CBD to take effect will depend on the route of administration. The fastest effect will be felt from smoking or vaporization (onset of effects in minutes). Topical administration of CBD will be felt quickly as well - around 20 minutes. The next fastest effect will be felt from a sublingual (under the tongue) dosage (onset of effects in 15 – 60 minutes). The slowest effect (but the longest lasting) will be felt from oral ingestion (onset felt in about 60-90 minutes).
Try to keep the CBD tincture under your tongue for at least 30 seconds. It may take slightly longer for it to fully absorb, but in general, the longer you hold it, usually - the better it will absorb. Don't worry if you ingest CBS tincture - it won't hurt you. It will just take longer to notice the affects and the affects may be more subtle since it will be processed through digestion.
Almost any substance on our planet can be addictive, but no CBD is not known to be an addictive drug. In fact, CBD has shown strong potential to be a useful tool to help people break addictions to harmful substances.
Hemp seed oil and CBD oil are very different products. CBD oils use primarily the flowers of the hemp plant in its production. These contain a higher concentration of CBD, which is a compound with numerous potential health benefits. Meanwhile, hemp seed oil comes from pressing mature hemp seeds and is typically used as a carrier oil or in food/supplements.
No. Drug tests look for THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Drug tests do not specifically test for CBD, but be aware that our Full Spectrum line contains small amounts of THC. Even if the amount of THC is very small (less than 0.3% THC which is the legal limit in Ohio), a drug test failure can occur if the person using a CBD oil that tests for even trace amounts of THC. Caution must be taken with drug tests and full spectrum CBD oils. Ohio Apothecary's Tincture No. 1 and Salve No. 1 are made from CBD isolate and contain no THC. Our Full Spectrum line contains small amounts of THC. If you undergo drug testing, please stick to our N0. 1 isolate based line. We understand that transparency is important.
