Which CBD brand or product is best?

Finding the right CBD product or brand for you may be a process of trial and error. It may come down to a lot of factors, including the strength, serving method, flavor, and formulation. It will also depend on your overall health, which is why it’s important to involve your doctor in your search. Everyone is different, that’s why it’s great that there are so many options available!

CBD and Your Health

It’s important to talk to your physician before adding CBD to your regimen. He or she can help you better understand your symptoms and if CBD is right for you.

Do your products contain THC?

Some of our products have miniscule, trace amounts of THC in them — but well below the legal limit of 0.3% (as set in the 2018 Farm Bill). It is very unlikely that most users will test positive for THC in a drug test, but — just as consuming poppy seeds may make you test positive for opioids — it could happen. Always consult a product’s “details page” to find accurate information about the products you buy — including whether it contains THC.

What does "ND THC" mean?

ND THC means the THC in the product is non-detectable (hence ND). This means it has been tested likely by a third-party lab and THC was not found in it. However, this does not necessarily mean that all tests will not detect THC in or from the product. 

Is ND THC the same as THC-Free?

No, ND THC and THC-Free do not mean the same thing. ND THC means that the THC is non-detectable, but it may still be present. THC-Free means that the product has been tested and either has less than or equal to 0.3% THC or THC was not detected in the product. Again, neither mean that the product has absolutely no THC in it or that every test will yield the same results. Your best bet for a truly THC-Free product would be a CBD (or other cannabinoid) isolate.

What issues can CBD help me with?

Many studies have shown that CBD may help with stress, anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, alertness, focus, nausea, varieties of skin conditions, sore muscles and joints and many other issues. 

How long does CBD or pure CBD oil stay in your system?

How long does CBD stay in your urine?

Can CBD help me sleep?

How do I ask my doctor about CBD?

Talking to your doctor about CBD may be intimidating, or you may simply not know where to begin. However, you may be surprised to learn that many doctors are on board with CBD as an alternative therapy (if it’s right for you!) 

Storing CBD Products

How should my CBD products be stored?

CBD oil does not need to be refrigerated, but if you would prefer to take it chilled you can store it in your fridge without impacting the product. If you prefer storing your oil, tincture, capsules, etc. at room temperature, simply leave them in the bottle anywhere that isn’t exposed to constant light or heat.

Should I keep my CBD products in the fridge?

Unless the packaging of your CBD product indicates you should store it in the fridge, you’re more than welcome to store it at room temperature. Keep it in a cool, dark place, such as a cabinet or desk drawer.
