FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Cannabinoids are chemical compounds from the Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) plant. This includes CBD as well as many, many other cannabinoids that are used for a variety of conditions. Other popular cannabinoids include: CBG, CBN, CBC, CBD-A, CBD-V.

Cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system. This system is connected to other physiological systems (immune, digestive, & nervous). Cannabinoids bind to the body’s receptors to boost the production of the body’s own naturally occurring cannabinoids.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the many cannabinoids from the Hemp plant. It is a natural compound that may be ingested and applied topically. Many people use cannabinoid products to help with sleep, ease anxiety, reduce pain or inflammation, and for many other reasons!

Delta-9 THC is the cannabinoid in marijuana that gives people a euphoric “high.” Unlike Delta-9 THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, non-intoxicating and does not affect dexterity or comprehension. The Hemp plant—where CBD comes from—is industrially grown to have significantly less THC than marijuana plants.

No. CBD is non-intoxicating and non-psychoactive. Although a CBD product may contain trace amounts of THC (<0.3% Δ9-THC), CBD products will not make you feel “high.” Alternatively, you may feel more relaxed, less anxious, or drowsy from CBD products.

There is no definitive rule on how much CBD any one person should have because everyone is different! What works for one person, may not work for you. The best rule of advice if you have never had CBD is to start with a low dose, wait 2-4 hours to monitor your reaction, then increase serving as needed. Always: Start low, go slow!

While the benefits of CBD are plentiful, anything ingested can potentially have a side effect.  Undesirable effects of cannabidiol may include low-blood pressure, drowsiness, dry-mouth and light-headedness. If you are taking prescription medications, you should always consult your primary care physician before taking any cannabinoid products.

We recommend storing products in a cool and dry space, away from direct sunlight. Always store out of reach of children. Store oil tinctures either in a refrigerator or at room temperature.

Yes! Like humans, dogs also have an endocannabinoid system that responds to cannabinoids. Many people give their pets CBD to ease anxiety, reduce joint and muscle pain, or help with inflammation. All Green Spectrums Pet Products come with a chart on the label explaining how much CBD a dog should have based on weight. Always start with a low dosage, monitor your dog’s reaction and increase serving as needed.

Although both come from the Hemp plant, CBN is a different cannabinoid than CBD. Cannabinol (CBN) is the most popular cannabinoid for aiding sleep. If you are having trouble sleeping, try Green Spectrums’ Blueberry CBN Oil—Sleep Aid!
