Frequently Asked Questions
Cannabidiol CBD Oil is one of more than 80 known components found in cannabis.
There’s an ever increasing amount of research pointing to various health benefits found in CBD, all while being non-psychoactive. The component responsible for giving users a “high” is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is prevalent in Cannabis and not in Hemp. According to scientific research and studies, CBD’s are anti-convulsive, sedative, anti-psychotic, anti-nausea, anti-inflammatory. CBD is a potent antioxidant compound with neuroprotective properties as well.

Physicians Grade CBD stimulates and regulates the endo-cannabinoid system, a group of neuromodulators in our body responsible for a variety of physiological processes. Our bodies produce many different cannabinoids that interact with our cannabinoid receptors. This is facilitated by the endo-cannabinoid system. The endo-cannabinoid system regulates appetite, pain-sensation, mood, memory and more by producing cannabinoids to interact with our body’s cannabinoid receptors that are found in the brain, and throughout the body.
Most cannabinoids bind into these receptors. CBD, which is essentially a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in plants, interacts with the endo-cannabinoid system indirectly, helping regulate the production of our own internal cannabinoids and promoting the overall health of our endo-cannabinoid system. The endo-cannabinoid system plays a crucial role in the normal functions of the immune and nervous systems.
By stimulating and regulating the endo-cannabinoid system with CBD, we can observe a wide variety of positive effects, as showcased by numerous recent studies on the subject.
Research on the exact properties of CBD and its interaction with our bodies is currently underway. Meanwhile doctors and scientists uncover new facts about this cannabinoid all the time.
Yes it is. It is legal to sell and ship CBD products to ALL 50 states. Here’s why ...
*In March, 2017, the DEA acknowledged that CBD sourced from industrial hemp cultivated lawfully pursuant to the industrial hemp laws enacted under the 2014 US Farm Bill is legal. This is because “industrial hemp” is itself specifically excluded from the CSA’s definition of marijuana in Section 7606 of the Farm Bill. Since industrial hemp is excluded from the definition of the CSA, and a “product consist[ing] solely of parts of the cannabis plant excluded from the CSA definition of marijuana” is not included in the new drug code, then such product (in our case, CBD) is also excluded from the definition of marijuana under the CSA and is thus legal.
The Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2016 (P.L. 114-113) (“the Funding Act”), passed on December 18, 2015, contains a provision at section 763 that reads:
Yes you can. You can use Physicians Grade CBD oil as an additive to your food after it is prepared. Please do not use prior to food preparation, when CBD oil is heated to above 225 degrees it will start to degrade. You can also take it directly, letting the oil absorb into your mouth rather than swallowing it right away. CBD oil is not water soluble, so it won’t mix with water or juice.
Everyone is different. Physicians Grade’s recommended serving size is enough for most people, but some take 2-3 times that amount or more. Please use your own judgement as this is a food product that is oil based and may upset your stomach. The exact properties of CBD are still being researched and the ideal serving size for particular conditions haven’t been discovered yet. Our doctor formulated products are made with the highest quality ingredients. While the medical community has not found that you can overdose on CBD, you should still exercise moderation and use common sense. Here are some general recommendations for a person weighing about 150 pounds, based on various research studies on CBD oil, as well as our own customers’ feedback and success stories: 1) 20 drops of Physicians Grade CBD oil (one serving), for mild problems such as everyday anxiety, mild aches, mild sleep problems and general health maintenance. 2) 40 drops of Physicians Grade CBD oil (two servings) for moderate effects, inflammation, frequent aches, insomnia and other problems. 3) Up to 60 drops of Physicians Grade CBD oil (three servings) for any other serious condition and always in conjunction with your other medications and after consulting with your doctor.

Everyone is different, and there are really no uniform results as this is for your health and well-being. It may take some a few days to a week before seeing results or feeling any effect, while others may have immediate results. In addition, some people do not feel anything from taking the products while others say they can feel a very subtle calming effect. Like any natural supplement, herbal, botanical, or traditional medicine – results will vary.
Our products have all been tested by a third-party lab. We will never put a product on our website that we believe could be harmful or unsafe. You can not overdose on cannabidiol (CBD). The worst thing that may happen is possible over-relaxation and tiredness. A review of 25 studies on the safety and efficacy of CBD did not identify significant side effects across a wide range of dosages, including acute and chronic dose regimens, using various modes of administration.
Our products contain trace amounts of THC, if any (always less than .03% THC by Federal law) in our Full Spectrum products. Physicians Grade Isolate products are THC Free.
