1. Is CBD legal in all 50 states?
Yes. The 2018 Farm Bill made hemp and hemp-derived CBD products federally legal in the U.S. for those 18 and older. Hemp has been de-scheduled and permanently removed from the Controlled Substances Act and removed from the jurisdiction of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). Now, U.S. federal law protects the sale of hemp-derived CBD. (“Hemp” is defined as Cannabis sativa, containing no more than 0.3 percent THC, the component of the plant that gets you high.)
2. Are all CBD products THC-free?
In states where cannabis is legal for either medical or recreational use, it’s possible to find CBD products with THC concentrations higher than 0.3 percent, making it important to do your research. All DMV Labs products are THC-free.
3. What physically happens when you use CBD? What is the chemistry behind it?
CBD works naturally with your endocannabinoid system (ECS). When introduced to the body, CBD binds to the ECS receptor (CB1 and CB2), which is present throughout the body. Thus, CBD has a wide range of uses.
4. What are common CBD uses for athletes?
Most athletes will use CBD for pain, discomfort, stress, sleeplessness, sore muscles, aches, mental clarity, relaxation, and much more.
5. CBD benefits seem so vast. Can it really be a kind of miracle cure?
Testing and regulation continue to uncover a wide range of CBD applications. All-natural CBD presents many bodily benefits with little or no side effects. People are gravitating toward a more natural approach to health because they’ve seen the results in those around them. If you could achieve improved mental, physical, and emotional well-being through a plant-based extract that’s naturally sourced, wouldn’t you?
6. How is CBD different than, say, ibuprofen?
Rather than simply dulling the symptoms like traditional prescription and OTC painkillers, CBD works naturally with the ECS throughout your body. Another difference is that CBD has no risk for addiction and little if any noticeable side effects.
7. Does rubbing CBD on my sore muscles work?
CBD “topicals” offer concentrated relief for areas of physical discomfort. Rubbing a CBD topical on sore muscles can provide highly targeted relief. Topicals from cbdMD contain premium CBD oil, but also essential oils, amino acids, and other beneficial compounds that help moisturize and invigorate skin.
7. How do you know you’re getting a quality CBD product?
CBD is one of the hottest products in the growing cannabis market, but the wealth of options can be exhausting. Find a brand that values quality and transparency in equal measure. For example, DMV Labs’ products are extracted from U.S. organically grown hemp on nutrient-rich farms utilizing a unique, hybrid, broad-spectrum manufacturing process to preserve the beneficial terpenes found in hemp. Also, look for a brand that’s willing to publish independent third-party lab results on its website to show consumers what is in each batch of CBD.
8. How much and how often should you incorporate CBD into your routine?
It’s different for everyone. Taking CBD is similar to starting a new diet. You can’t expect to lose all the weight after one healthy meal. It takes time. CBD benefits are cumulative, so be patient and consistent to ensure that the potency has time to build up in your system. Daily use is suggested, and dosage will vary for each individual. Allow at least 2 to 3 weeks to see full results. A good rule of thumb is to start with a smaller dose and adjust accordingly.
9. Can CBD be dangerous in any scenario? Can you be allergic to it?
While rare, it is possible to have or develop a hemp allergy. This happens when the chemistry of the plant’s enzymes causes a negative response in certain individuals.
