CBD oil from the cannabis plant is worth its weight in gold and after reading what we have to tell you about it, you will understand why.

First and foremost, let’s get this number one question answered for you right away.  No, you cannot get “high” from using this product.  

However, you must keep in mind, that although you can’t get high, some products do contain a small trace of THC.

This plant is a non-drug strain of the cannabis family

When you buy hemp oil, you must be aware that even though hemp is very low in THC, it could still trip a drug test. 

We will get to that in a minute when we explain the differences.

Hemp vs. Marijuana

As you already know, hemp is part of the cannabis family.  We would like to clarify the difference between hemp oil (also referred to as hemp seed oil) and CBD oil.  


Hemp oil is extracted from the seeds of the plant, whereas CBD is extracted from the flowers, leaves and stalks of the plant.  The seeds of the plant do not contain CBD or THC.    

Hemp is very high in CBD, the part with the health benefits and very low in THC, the psychoactive part that gets you high  

Marijuana is the complete opposite.  It is high in THC, the psychoactive part that gets you “high” and low in CBD. 

CBD oil products are becoming very popular and people are now experiencing the tremendous health benefits.

CBD Oil is great for:

  • Discomfort
  • Nausea
  • Better concentration
  • Anti-inflammatory  
  • Sleep aid
  • And so much more

Not All CBD Oil Is The Same

When you are looking to buy CBD oil, you will find a couple different types of oil.  

There is full-spectrum and then there is CBD isolate. CBD isolate is just that, pure CBD.  

A Full spectrum CBD oil contains other compounds within the plant, such as terpenes, fiber, magnesium, proteins, flavonoids, vitamins A, B, C and E and much more.  

This allows you to take advantage of the whole plant and its natural health benefits.

When using a full-spectrum CBD oil, you are receiving what is referred to as the entourage effect.  

What this means is that all the chemical components of the plant are working synergistically to give you the highest and richest quality this plant has to offer when you consume CBD oil.

You will not receive the entourage effect when using a CBD isolate, because it is not using all the components of the plant.  

Just because this product does not contain any THC, that doesn’t mean it is lacking in other things that are good for you. 

This is what makes it an ideal product for individuals that are subject to drug testing, such as athletes, military, law enforcement, first-responders or anyone that is concerned about THC when they use CBD oil.

CBD Oil Extraction

There are different methods of extracting and like anything else, some are good and some not so good.  One of the best ways of extraction is the Supercritical CO2 method.

The FDA considers CO2 safe because when we breathe. we produce CO2.  Since we produce this, it is considered a natural product. 

CO2 does not harm the atmosphere and it doesn’t contaminate the final result of the product.

When extracting the oil in this manner, it is done under high pressure and very low temperatures.  This will isolate, preserve and maintain the purity of the oil. 

Know Your CBD Oil Product

Another good thing to know about the item you are purchasing is to make sure that there were no pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers used during the growing process.

A good quality CBD oil is triple lab tested before it even leaves the building and makes it into your hands.

Some companies import hemp from out of the USA. If hemp is coming from out of the country, it is tested after harvest, then again after it gets to the USA.  

The third time, formulators at the manufacturing plant test it again by batch testing the end results. 

When you buy CBD oil that is triple-lab tested, you can feel safe knowing that the final product is considered safe from contaminates. 

How Much Should I Take

Because we are all different, it is usually recommended to start out with half of the recommended serving and work your way up from there.  

If you listen to your body, it will tell you what it considers to be the recommended serving size for you.

You can find CBD oil from 5 mg per serving all the way up to 225 mg per serving.  If you have a hard time swallowing a capsule, it also comes in a liquid form, CBD infused beverages, CBD infused edibles, and you can vape it as well.
