Isolate CBD products only contain the phyto-cannabinoid of CBD, no other minor cannabinoids, terpenes or other naturally occurring compounds of the source hemp plant. Broad-Spectrum CBD products contain CBD as well as the other minor cannabinoids, terpenes and other naturally occurring compounds of the source hemp plant except for THC. All detectible/traceable amounts of THC are removed in order to create broad-spectrum CBD products. Full-Spectrum CBD products contain CBD, minor cannabinoids, terpenes and other naturally occurring compounds of the source hemp plant including up to 0.3% THC. The phenomenon known as "The Entourage Effect" is when all of the natural compounds of the source cannabis plant work synergistically within the human body better than if those compounds were isolated. This is why either broad-spectrum or full-spectrum CBD is preferred by industry experts and is why 4Fathers CBD does not offer CBD isolate products.
Both Hemp and Marijuana are the same species of the Cannabis Sativa-L species, however, they are different Cultivars. Hemp is legally defined as the Cannabis Sativa-L plant with Delta-9 THC content of no more than 0.3% on a dry-weight basis. Therefore, any cannabis plant that has greater than 0.3% Delta-9 THC content is Marijuana, while a cannabis plant with less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC content is classified as Hemp.
All of our CBD products contain the same compound, CBD, but each product may contain a different amount of CBD. The milligram amount of CBD printed on the front of our labels reflect the total amount of CBD contained within the product. For example, our 450mg CBD tincture oils contain 30 milliliters of 15mg doses of CBD (15mg * 30mL = 450mg). The Ultimate difference between each CBD product is the onset reaction time (i.e., the timeframe in which CBD begins to take effect) and duration time (i.e., how long the effects from CBD last). Smokables and Vape Products have the shortest onset reaction time but the shortest duration time, while, edible CBD products have the longest onset reaction time but the longest time of duration.
This is a common question and although this may not be the answer anyone wants to hear, the honest answer is probably not, but it cannot be guaranteed.
Most drug tests produce a certain chemical reaction when THC is present. Our broad-spectrum hemp CBD products have no traceable amounts of THC, which is verified by the 3rd party lab test results that are available on our website and by the QR code on the label of each product. Our full-spectrum hemp CBD products contain small concentrations of THC and depending on the frequency of use and metabolism of the user, could result in a positive drug test.
Anyone who is concerned about failing a drug test should avoid using full-spectrum CBD products and only use broad-spectrum CBD products and/or CBD isolate products that have 3rd party lab test reports which match the batch number on the product itself and verify that there are no traceable/detectable amounts of THC. These patrons also have the option of using a CBD topical product but should avoid trans-dermal or other topical products that are designed to puncture through the skin into the bloodstream. None of the topical products we offer are designed to enter the bloodstream.
No, CBD is a non-intoxicating compound of the cannabis plant and therefore cannot get you "high" or "stoned." Even full-spectrum CBD hemp products have a maximum Delta-9-THC concentration of only 0.3%, which is an insufficient amount of THC to cause intoxication. In some instances, there may CBD hemp flower strains containing higher levels of THC-A which, after decarboxylation, may cause a mild sense of drowsiness and relaxation but does not cause intoxication.
According to a report from the World Health Organization, "In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential….To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD."
Common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, decreased appetite, irritability, and fatigue. In some instances, CBD has the potential of raising levels of other medications in the body that are metabolized by the enzyme
Cytochrome P450 (e.g., medications that cannot be taken with Grape Fruit Juice).
Even though negative-side effects are generally mild and rarely encountered, it is recommend that anyone considering to add CBD to their daily health regimen, first consult with their licensed medical professionals before trying CBD. In this regard, while we have no reason to believe that our CBD products will cause any harm, customer safety is most important to us and it is always wise to consult with a qualified licensed medical professional whenever you plan to introduce a new substance to your body.
CBD works peripherally through its interaction with the CB2 receptor of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is a homeostatic system that found in all vertebrates and is responsible for most, if not all of the physiological processes within the body, including how we relax, eat, sleep, forget and protect.
In other words, the ECS is designed to keep the body maintain its balanceand when there are mechanisms within the body that are out of balance, Phyto-Cannabinoids, such as CBD, insert themselves into receptors of the ECS like a key being inserted inside a lock, which then transmit signals throughout the body that help re-establish its balance(i.e. homeostasis). While our products are not designed to diagnose, treat or cure any illness, ailment or disease, there is substantial clinical and observational evidence that is publicly available supporting CBD's beneficial effects on health. Please feel free to visit us or to contact us if you are having any trouble researching the various health benefits that CBD may offer.
Generally not because CBD is not a sedative but drowsiness can be a side-effect when CBD is taken in substantially high doses. THC on the other hand is a sedative and is the Cannabinoid most likely to cause drowsiness. For this reason, we often suggest our CBD Softgels with Melatonin for sleep for those looking to CBD as a sleep aid or a broad-spectrum CBD product for those who do not desire a sedative effect. Notwithstanding, there are many who report that CBD has helped with sleep, which can likely be attributed to CBD's interaction with the endocannabinoid system that helps regulate internal imbalance and feelings of anxiousness and stress.
Once you have made the decision to use CBD, preferably under the guise of a licensed medical professional, it is suggested that you take CBD on a daily basis for at least a 4-6 week time period. We often suggest to our customers to make a list of the reasons you are using CBD and after the 4-6 week period to look back at that list to see if CBD has accomplished any of your stated goals. The daily frequency that CBD is taken depends upon the type of product being used because different CBD products have differing onset reaction times as well as differing times of duration. In order to assist our customers in this regard, the suggested daily dose is printed on the labels of all our concentrated CBD products although, only a licensed medical professional can prescribe how much and how often CBD should be used.
As is the case with any substance, including but not limited to caffeine, nicotine and alcohol, it is possible to take too much CBD. With that said, our products are formulated at relatively low doses and so long as you are following the instructions of your health team and/or adhering to the suggested dosage printed on our labels, it is unlikely you will take too much CBD. Additionally, you should determine what the "minimum therapeutic dose" of CBD needed to accomplish the intended result as anything beyond that could be counterproductive to your health goals.
