FAQS

CBD

WHAT IS CBD?

CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is a major cannabinoid which has no psychoactivity and cannot get you high. CBD interacts with the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to provide homeostasis. Cannabidiol is the primary cannabinoid in our Broad Spectrum Phytocannabinoid Rich Hemp Extract. Significant research has been done to show that CBD and other cannabinoids play a major role in supporting health and wellness.

WHAT IS HEMP?

Hemp is part of the Cannabis sativa family, a cousin of marijuana. Hemp is different from marijuana because it naturally has a very low percentage (<0.3%) of THC, the only psychoactive cannabinoid, and cannot get you high. Hemp was used for thousands of years before becoming restricted in the United States in 1937. However, thanks to the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill on December 20th, hemp has again become unrestricted and we can now unlock the thousands of benefits of the plant. One of the most important benefits of Hemp is that it contains over 100 non-psychoactive cannabinoids, including CBD.

WHAT IS A CANNABINOID?

Chemical compounds secreted by hemp flowers including cannabidiol and other active compounds of cannabis. These compounds work naturally by imitating compounds found naturally in our body called endocannabinoids. These endocannabinoid receptors activate in order to maintain, heal, and provide internal stability for many vital systems within our bodies. Although researchers have been able to identify most cannabinoids, much more research needs to be done to find out how each cannabinoid benefits us.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ISOLATE & BROAD SPECTRUM?

CBD isolate is for those who are looking 99%+ percent pure CBD that contains absolutely no THC. CBD isolate is a process of extraction in which all of the plant matter including traces of THC, turpens, chlorophyll and everything else is removed. With CBD isolate you have to take into consideration the level of purity. If you are looking for pure CBD oil, the check the manufacture label to see what percentage your CBD is. Some CBD oil can be 99% pure, some can be 99.5% pure, and others can guarantee you 99.9% purity with no identifiable amounts of other cannabinoids. Occasionally there is a small percentage of trace amounts of THC which is negligible and of no importance.

Broad Spectrum CBD is similar to Full Spectrum CBD with cannabinoids: CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC, but zero THC. Our Broad Spectrum CBD Oil starts as Full Spectrum, and processed with an extra step using a unique chromatography process to isolate and remove any traces of THC. This slightly decreases the levels of other minor cannabinoids like CBG, CBN and CBC, but leaves CBD molecules completely intact. Broad Spectrum CBD Oil is the perfect choice if you want to reap the benefits of the entourage effect that are associated with Full Spectrum CBD, but cannot have any THC in your system.

We currently do not sell any Full Spectrum CBD products.

WHAT IS CBD OIL?

CBD oil is the term used to describe a sublingual tincture of CBD. A CBD oil or tincture is made by mixing a CBD extract from a cannabis plant into a base like alcohol or hemp seed oil. The CBD oil is meant to be held under the tongue and absorbed directly into the bloodstream. A sublingual absorption provides a faster effect than absorbtion via the stomach (i.e. taking a CBD capsule or edible product).

CAN I GIVE CBD TO MY PET?

Yes. Pets can benefit from CBD for many of the same conditions as humans: pain, seizures, inflammation, and anxiety. CBD is safe to use for pets but their dosage will likely be much smaller than yours. Dogs have a higher concentration of cannabinoid receptors in their brain. This means they are very sensitive to THC. But a small amount of THC, like the amount in a full spectrum CBD hemp oil, is beneficial for animals. We recommend you speak with a veterinarian (holistic veterinarian) before you start giving your pet CBD.

WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF CBD?

CBD has shown to have the following effects: non psychoactive (does not cause a high), alerting in low to moderate doses, sedating in high doses, reduces pain, reduces muscle spasms, anti-inflammatory, stops nausea/vomiting, reduces anxiety/depression, counters psychotic thoughts, antioxidant, anticonvulsant, neuroprotectant, and anti-tumor.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

CBD has no known severe side effects, but mild side effects could include nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, dry mouth, and diarrhea. If you experience any side effects, we advise decreasing the amount of CBD you're taking in a single serving.

We recommend speaking with your physician before taking CBD with any medications.

WHAT IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM?

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) was discovered by scientists in the 1990’s and is made up of endocannabinoids and their receptors which are found throughout mammalian bodies. These receptors are concentrated in the brain & central nervous system, heart & circulatory system, lungs & respiratory system, muscular system, endocrine system, digestive system, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the primary task is homeostasis (the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment).

The ECS supports various biological tasks, including energy & balance, immune function, memory, metabolism, sleep, and the function of the autonomic nervous system.

Our PCR Hemp extract contains many beneficial phytocannabinoids to support the ECS’s major receptors, CB1 and CB2. This helps the body to maintain proper homeostasis, allowing for immune system support.

WHAT IS THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT?

CBD isn’t the only beneficial cannabinoid in hemp. With CBG, CBN, CBC, CBDA, and other minor cannabinoids provide a wealth of benefits. These benefits are especially powerful while working together. Researchers have found evidence of the entourage effect in a recent study. Along with cannabinoids terpenes also provide many benefits. Terpenes are another group of natural chemicals found in cannabis, many people believe specific terpenes have a wide array of diverse benefits for our bodies. Co2 extraction is the preferred method of extraction in order to preserve the wide range of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.

DO YOU TEST YOUR PRODUCTS?

HOW SHOULD I STORE MY PRODUCTS?

CBD products should always be stored properly to help maintain their freshness and improve their shelf life. An opened CBD product will typically maintain its effectiveness for about 6 months. To store your HumbleBee Hemp Co. CBD products properly, keep at room temperature to preserve freshness and store away from humidity, heat, and light.

WHY DO YOU USE MCT OIL AS YOUR CARRIER OIL?

Cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, CBN, and CBC are fat soluble, meaning they break down and are stored in fat rather than water. Therefore cannabinoids are most effective when consumed with fat, because it increases the rate of absorption. HumbleBee Hemp Co. selected MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) oil or coconut oil as our carrier. With coconut oil having higher fat content than other oils, it gives the cannabinoids the traction they need to move through the body and interact with the endocannabinoid system faster.

HOW MUCH CBD SHOULD I TAKE?

For people seeking a more balanced lifestyle, relief from mild anxiety and sleep issues, or a way to aid post-workout, inflammation-induced discomfort, we recommend starting at 10-15 mg a day. For those who are suffering from severe ailments such as arthritic pain, anxiety or panic attacks, or incredible discomfort from rigorous workout regimens, we recommend starting at 25-35 mg a day. No matter where you start, you can increase your serving size by 10 mg to see if a higher dosage works better for you.

Bolstering your regiment with our Buzz Balm is also a great way to combat post-workout discomfort or joint pain.

Since consistency is key when it comes to harnessing the power of phytocannabinoids, you should take the same amount of CBD daily at the same time each day to achieve your desired results.
