What Is CBD

Why is CBD?

All-natural and plant-based, our CBD oils are the extract you need to help your body identify its underlying problems and find the balance it needs for optimum wellness. Derived from hemp and non-psychoactive, they interact with your immune, nervous and endocrine systems. They'll help bring you back to homeostasis - and help you live your best life.

Why do people take CBD?

At CBD Drip we respect rules, including those made by our Federal Drug Administration (the FDA). While the rules set forth by the FDA are well-meaning and largely beneficial in keeping the American public safe, in the case of CBD they have seriously impacted our ability to share the good news about the precise benefits of CBD. So with that said, our advice to those eager to learn if this product will work for them is to read the reviews here and on other sites on the web. Do your own research. Browse medical journals. While medical journals in particular can be dense and often hard to understand, your diligence willl be rewarded as you will see the evidence in favor of giving this gift from nature a chance to help you get back to your best.

What is the endocannabinoid system?

In 1992 a team of researchers discoved a new regulatory system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Endocannabinoids with their accompanying receptors are found throughout the human body. Their role in the human body is to establish homeostasis. Homeostasis is the body’s ability to maintain stability internally regardless of external conditions. CBD plays a critical role in maintaining this stability and over time our body produces less and less CBD naturally. That’s why taking a quality CBD supplement can be so beneficial to your health. Especially as you age or in situations where injury or exposure to toxic enviornments has occurred.

How is our CBD made?

Our production process begins with the harvesting of European Grown EU certified hemp stalks from male hemp plants. Next, the hemp is imported and inspected by US Customs and Homeland Security. This biomass is then shipped to our production facility where our full spectrum hemp oil is extracted using a clean, non-sovent based critical CO2 extraction process. Finally, this raw oil is transported to our production facility where it undergoes final proprietry formulation to create the final products that you see today.

What is the whole hemp entourage effect?

The entourage effect is the synergistic impact of all the naturally occurring constituents of the hemp plant working together to return the body to its natural state of homeostasis and wellness. CBD Drip’s whole hemp extracts are the foundation for every product we sell which includes hundreds of distinct compounds including terpenes, phytocannabinoids, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E and several plant sterols. In contrast, CBD isolates do not provide the same level of benefits as they are by definition isolated CBD molecules without all the other beneficial cannabinoids. Worth noting again is the fact that we use hemp and not marijuana to produce our CBD. This means that it contains only trace amounts of THC.

Are there any side effects?

The majority of scientific studies conclude that Cannabidiol (CBD) is safe and virtually free of any kind of side effects including adverse drug interactions.

For example, in 2011 a study was conducted on the “ Safety and side effects of cannabidiol, a cannabis sativa constituent ” suggested that even extremely high dosages up to 1,500 mg/day are reportedly well tolerated in patients. There was no observable physiological changes such as heart rate, body temperature or blood pressure.

Is CBD Legal?

The answer is yes. CBD Drip has put in substantial time and effort to insure that we are able to deliver 100% federally legal CBD to all 50 states.

The rules we follow for 100% legality:

  • Less than .3% THC
  • Sourced outside of the United States
  • Made from the stalks and stems of mature industrial hemp plants

For your health and wellness we hope you buy from us, but if you don’t please make sure that the company you purchase from adheres to these three things to insure your legal protection.

Will I pass a drug test?

Our products contain trace amounts of THC and are under the federal legal limit of .3%. Despite these incredibly low amounts of THC we have heard of people failing a drug test. Typically a second test is conducted that does a more thorough screening and it’s discovered that the customer does not in fact have illegal cannabinoids in their system. All of that said, we encourage you to exercise caution when using hemp products and to weigh the risks vs benefits. While federally legally, all true FULL spectrum CBD oils do contain trace amounts of THC so if you are at risk of losing your job due to drug testing then please be sure to confirm that your workplace is CBD friendly.
