The ABC's on CBD


How CBD will affect you

Why would I take CBD?

  • To alleviate symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, inflammation 
  • CBD is an anti-inflammatory with a therapeutic and calming effect. CBD can sometimes be used as a substitute for Advil (ibuprofen), or Tylenol (Acetaminophen). 

How long does the CBD effect Last?

  • The effects of relaxation usually last a few hours
  • Some symptoms (muscle/joint pain) are cured with cumulative use. This daily CBD use will allow for the CBD to build up in your system and relieve your pain for longer periods of time.

How much should I have in 1 sitting?

  • This depends on the person; 10-15mg is the usual dose for a light user

Does CBD get you high?

  • No, CBD has no psychoactive effects. There is no mental slowness or distortion associated with a “high”

Can I take too much CBD?

  • No, if you take too much you will most likely feel tired and simply fall asleep

    Will it give me the munchies?

    • Unlikely, THC is the cause of appetite increase, and since there is less than .3% THC in our CBD biltong, it will not have an effect on your appetite

    What are the side effects?

    • If you take too much you will feel sleepy

    Can I take it while driving?

    • Taking only CBD will not cause any psychoactive effects. However, it may cause drowsiness.

    What happens if my dog eats it?

    • CBD has a similar effect on dogs as it does on humans, and has no negative effects specific to dogs.

      What does CBD Isolate taste like?

      •  Our biltong uses CBD isolate, which has no discernable taste to it. 

      The Science Behind CBD

      What is CBD?

      • CBD stands for cannabidiol and is a compound found in cannabis
      • The CBD we infuse is Industrial Hemp derived, meaning it has less than .3% THC

        What’s the difference between CBD and THC?

        • The main difference is CBD does not cause the ‘psychoactive’ effect THC does, so it does not give you the ‘high’ feeling

        How does CBD work?

        • CBD does not directly interact with the two classical cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2).  However, it acts as a regulator of signals through CB1 and CB2 receptors indirectly. This is the main difference between CBD and THC, and the reason why it is not intoxicating. In addition to its indirect influence on the CB1 and CB2 receptors, CBD can increase levels of the body’s own naturally-produced cannabinoids (known as endocannabinoids) by inhibiting the enzymes that break them down.

        Is CBD a chemical/pharmaceutical?

        • CBD is a cannabinoid found in the marijuana plant, and is naturally extracted into oil or isolate.

        How is CBD made?

        • Our CBD Biltong utilizes CBD isolate. CBD isolate is an all natural cannabidiol in its purest form, extracted from hemp stalks, seeds, and oils. The CBD is extracted from the plant material, usually in the form of oil.  The oil then undergoes a filter process that results in a pure crystalline CBD product. This filtering process also removes all trace amounts of THC, eliminating the risk of accidental consumption. 

        How does CBD help with soreness?

        • CBD affects muscle soreness in two ways. It is an anti-inflammatory, and it can act as a pain reliever. CBD can reduce inflammation in the muscles and joints, reducing pain, and, therefore, soreness. Anti-inflammatory agents can also increase blood flow which reduces the duration of soreness. CBD also regulates pain receivers in the brain and can offer more immediate relief from muscle pain.

        What type of CBD is infused into our biltong?

        • Hemp-derived CBD Isolate is used in our biltong because it has no taste and is 99% pure CBD, with less than .03% THC.

        What does Full-Spectrum, Broad-Spectrum and Isolate CBD mean?

        • Full-Spectrum CBD is advertised as having all of the terpenes from the cannabis plant still in the tincture, with only the THC removed. It can only be made in liquid form and has a distinct earthy/plant smell and taste
        • Broad-Spectrum CBD is referred to a CBD tincture with some of the terpenes left in, with the THC removed. It can only be made in liquid form and has a distinct earthy/plant smell and taste
        • CBD Isolate is 99% pure CBD with no terpenes or THC left in the mixture. Isolate can be a powder or dissolved in water and has no taste or smell

         

          The Legality of CBD

            Is it legal for me to eat in my state?

            • Yes, it is legal in all 50 states as it is Hemp Derived CBD

            Can I take it on an Airplane?

            • Yes, It is a great remedy for a stressful flight

              Is CBD a drug?

              • No, CBD is treated like any other vitamin or supplement

                Will CBD show up on a drug test?

                • CBD itself is not tested by common drug tests. Whether or not taking CBD supplements will trigger detection of THC depends on the purity of the CBD supplement. The CBD used in our biltong is 99% pure CBD, and contains no THC. It is therefore impossible for our biltong to show up on a drug test.

                 

                A Final Note:

                CBD is an exciting new compound that is still in its infancy of being fully understood, in terms of medically and legally. We scoured the internet and spoke to industry experts to gather all of this information. We will do our best to update this FAQ with any new findings or updates.
