Frequently Asked QuestionsOur team has worked to compile the most common CBD questions for your benefit. If you still have questions related to Natural Ways CBD or the products we carry, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team for assistance.
What's the Difference Between Broad Spectrum, Full Spectrum, and Isolate?
The main difference between these three types of products is what compounds they are made up of. Isolate is made up of only cannabidiol while broad spectrum and full spectrum have other compounds found in hemp as well. The difference between broad spectrum and full spectrum is that full spectrum contains less than 0.3% of THC in the oil.
What Does CBD Do?
When introduced to the body, CBD products interact with the endocannabinoid system — a complex network of receptors and neurotransmitters spread throughout the entire body. This system is tasked with regulating the balance of various organ systems.
The greatest abundance of these receptors is located in the brain, the central nervous system, and the immune system. Almost every organ in your body, including the skin and digestive tract, comes with cannabinoid receptors.
By increasing our naturally occurring endocannabinoid, CBD runs through your body to help restore balance in each of these organs.
Is CBD Safe?
CBD exhibits no effects on humans indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.
To date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.
Chronic use and high doses up to 1,500 mg/day of CBD are reportedly well tolerated.
Is CBD Legal in all 50 States?
Yes, as long as it is derived from hemp, not marijuana, and contains less than 0.3% THC.
Can CBD Cause a Drug Test Failure?
Most drug tests screen for the psychoactive compound THC, not cannabidiol (CBD).
However, full-spectrum hemp extracts contain trace amounts of THC, so they could cause a positive result when screening urine and blood specimens, especially when taken at high doses.
Does CBD Interact With Other Medications?
Yes. CBD inhibits the cytochrome P450 enzyme involved in metabolizing many drugs. Compounds in grapefruit inhibit the same enzyme group which is why physicians advise patients not to eat grapefruit shortly before or after taking certain medications. By inhibiting cytochrome P450, CBD can either reduce or increase the effects of other drugs. In some situations, it may be advisable for a physician to monitor a patient’s blood levels of other medications while taking CBD.
If your medication has the “grapefruit warning” on the bottle, speak to your physician before taking CBD.
Can I Use CBD Oil When I Am Pregnant or Nursing?
If you are pregnant or nursing we advise you to consult with your doctor before taking any of our products.
Can Someone Be Allergic to CBD?
While an allergic reaction to CBD is rare, it can happen. You could be reacting to another compound in the product. If you experience any adverse reactions to our products, we recommend you stop using the product and consult your doctor before continuing.
How Much CBD Should I Take?
There is no set dosage for CBD oil or related products, it’s best to start with small amounts at the beginning to determine what works for your body.
We recommend taking ½ dropper twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. If you feel like you’re not receiving the results that you’re needing after 4-6 days, you can increase that dose by ½ dropper once per day. Repeat this process until you start experiencing the results you’re looking for.
Will Full Spectrum Products Get Me High?
No. Hemp-derived CBD products, no matter the type, simply do not contain enough THC to cause any psychoactive effects.
