What is CBD?
CBD or cannabidiol is a non-psychotropic component of the marijuana plant. It has many healthcare uses, from treatment of nausea to adjunct therapy for psychiatric conditions.
Will CBD oil get me high?
CBD, unlike the THC component of marijuana, does not produce any psychotropic effects. You will not feel high or be impaired in any way when you use our CBD oil.
Is there THC in your products?
There is absolutely no THC in any of our products for human or animal consumption. As such, you will not feel any of the psychotropic effects of marijuana.
Why does Nature's Gold CBD use avocado and cinnamon oils instead of MCT?
We incorporate avocado and cinnamon oils into our products because it is highly beneficial to our clients' health. Typical CBD concoctions include seed oils, which don't contain the same nutrients as other parts of a plant, or coconut oil, which is heavily processed.
Avocado oil is pressed from the flesh of avocados. It contains Vitamin E, which is an antioxidant. It has omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for your brain. It contains fewer omega-6 polyunsaturated fats, which can lead to inflammation. Best of all, avocado oil has a mild flavor, so you can incorporate your CBD oils into delicious foods without overpowering your taste buds.
As for cinnamon oil, it's delicious and smells great. It's also good for you, containing antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. Cinnamon has also been known to boost blood circulation.
Will I fail a drug test if I use your oils?
Whether you can pass a drug test while using our CBD oils depends on the cannabinoids for which the lab you are visiting tests. It may look for multiple cannabinoids or just THC. You have every right to ask ahead of time if it is looking for THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid in marijuana, or if it is testing for CBD as well. You can make an anonymous phone call ahead of time if you prefer to keep your inquiry private.
If the lab does test for CBD, our oil could produce a positive result. If it is testing for THC only, our products will not affect your test, as they do not contain any THC.
Do your oils contain full spectrum or isolate CBD?
Our products contain pure CBD isolate.
What's the difference between hemp oil and CBD oil?
Hemp oil is produced using only the seeds of the marijuana plant and therefore contains little, if any, CBD. CBD oil uses the entire plant and the CBD is isolated for a more potent product. Moreover, hemp has broader uses in cooking, cosmetics and more while CBD oil is produced primarily for health care.
What is the endocannabinoid system?
The endocannabinoid system is a series of receptors for neurotransmitters found in your brain and your body. Cannabinoids, such as CBD, link to these receptors, activating them. This is the system that allows CBD and other cannabinoids to interact with your body.
There are two types of receptors in the endocannabinoid system: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain and central nervous system. CB2 receptors are found primarily in the immune system.
Because CBD fits into the receptors in your endocannabinoid system, it helps your body send signals along these receptors. Because these receptors exist everywhere from the uterus to the cerebral cortex, the potential for medical treatment with CBD is enormous.
Is your pet line of CBD oil safe for my pet?
Yes. We have formulated our pet care line for consumption by your beloved animals.
What's the difference between your pet line and your regular CBD oil?
