Because CBD is so new, there isn’t a lot of common knowledge about it out there. With so much unknown, it might be a little intimidating to get into using it. But, we know that CBD oil and Nature’s Ultra products can help you in your everyday life. So, we want to help demystify CBD and answer the top 10 questions about it! Keep reading to check it out.
What is CBD?
Let’s first figure out what CBD oil even is. CBD stands for cannabidiol, a natural cannabinoid found in hemp plants. Some Cannabinoids work with our ECS (endocannabinoid system) and could promote balance and homeostasis.
Is CBD safe?
CBD is generally safe, as long as the CBD products you’re buying are high in quality. That’s why it’s so important to do research on the company you’re buying from! We at Nature’s Ultra grow our own hemp so we can guarantee that our products are the best quality possible. Click here to learn more about how we use the best practices possible.
Something to keep in mind is that everyone’s body reacts to things differently. So, some people may like using CBD oil, while some may be allergic or not notice any differences. We recommend testing a small area of skin when using CBD products for the first time. If you notice any itching or swelling, wash the product off immediately.
Will CBD make me high?
CBD oil will not make you high. Hemp plants only contain trace amounts of THC, which is a cannabinoid in marijuana that causes a high. Because there is such a low amount found in hemp plants, and because it’s removed during the process of producing of our CBD oil, CBD products will not make you high. Instead, you can reap the positive rewards of hemp and CBD oil!
Is CBD legal?
As of 2018, hemp-derived products are federally legal, as long as they contain less than 0.3 percent THC. Remember, this only pertains to CBD oil that has been extracted from hemp plants.
Take some time to do some research on hemp and CBD laws in your state. While it may be federally legal, some states are more strict than others due to differing state laws and regulations. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, so it’s worth it to put in some study time.
How do I use CBD?
Our products are not currently labeled or marketed as intended for internal use. There are lots of other ways you can use Nature’s Ultra CBD products! Rub it on your wrists, neck, behind your ears, or almost anywhere else that you can apply easily, while also allowing you to smell the beautiful essential oils we’ve added to our products. You can also use it like a massage oil to help relax your body and mind. It’s also a great idea to use products such as our Calm CBD Roll-On while you’re meditating! Roll it onto your wrists, temples, and the palms of your hand to help you focus and relax.
How much CBD do I use?
For our high-quality CBD oils, we recommend using a full dropper. This is one milliliter of CBD oil. When it comes to the Calm CBD Roll-On and the CBD Muscle Rub, use as much as you need. You can’t use too much CBD, so there’s no need to worry about using a lot! Just use enough to cover the area with a thin layer of product, that way you aren’t wasting any.
Can anyone use CBD?
Although CBD products are widely used, we always recommend consulting your doctor before trying a new product, especially if you are pregnant, taking medications, or breastfeeding. While CBD shouldn’t have too much of an effect on any medications you might be taking, you never know how it might react. Call your doctor to see if they would have any concerns.
How much CBD is in each dropper?
How much CBD there is in a full dropper of Nature’s Ultra CBD oil depends on the strength you get. We have two different strengths—500 mg and 1000 mg. A full dropper at 500 mg strength contains approximately 16.66 mg of CBD. A full dropper at 1000 mg strength contains approximately 33.33 mg. We recommend starting at the lower strength and moving up as needed. Everyone’s body is different, so some people need a higher amount to get CBD working for you.
What’s the difference between full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate?
There are three possible versions of CBD oil, each different from the other. Full spectrum CBD oil can be derived from the marijuana plant or the Hemp plant. It contains CBD, but also different extracts from the whole plant such as THC, terpenes, and other essential oils from the plant. While you’ll still get the benefits from the CBD oil, the drawback of full spectrum is that it contains THC. That means that you’ll experience intoxicating side effects.
Broad spectrum CBD oil can also be derived from the marijuana plant or the hemp plant and contains almost all of the same extracts as full spectrum CBD oil, aside from THC.
One great option is a CBD isolate which is extracted and then combined with essential oils. This extraction method only pulls out CBD in its purest form. This is the type of CBD that we at Nature’s Ultra use! With a combination of pure CBD and Young Living Essential Oils, our products are of the best quality and benefit to you.
