A: You do not need a state issued Medical Cannabis card to buy product at HW CBD.
A: Although both are from the same plant species called Cannabis, they are 2 very distinct plants that differ in genetics, cultivation, and chemical process. Hemp is cultivated for many things including: rope, fabric, food, CBD extracts, etc. Marijuana is cultivated to yield high levels of THC. Hemp has very low levels of THC (defined as 0.3% and under) and has no intoxicating properties, where marijuana can contain levels that exceed 20%.
A: President Trump made history on December 20th, 2018 making #Hemp federally legal, and is legal in some form in all 50 states. Check with your local government regarding local rules and regulations because they can for sure be tricky.
A: CBD stands for Cannabidiol which is most commonly known as the "therapeutic compound" with no intoxicating properties. The truth is that it is just one of the hundreds of cannabinoids in this amazing & sacred plant that act on the cannabinoid receptors in our Endocannabinoid System.
A: There are many ways to extract the precious cargo of the Hemp and cannabis plants. Extracts may be obtained using solvents, cold-press, ethanol, non-flammable CO2 Extraction and now "Nano-Extraction".
A: CBD from Hemp is non-psychoactive and will not impair the user or get them high. Hemp derived CBD contains less than 0.3% THC.
A: We sell many products that are THC free, and all of our other products have less than 0.3% THC. This is a very minuscule amount, however, every body is different in the way compounds are stored and eliminated. The safest thing to do is to either ask your employer/Dr. or purchase products with zero THC.
A: CBD isolate is 99% pure CBD, broad spectrum contains CBD and other cannabinoids without the THC, and full spectrum is full plant extract with all cannabinoids found in that plant.
A: This is probably the most important question that I answer. You must protect yourself, ask questions, ask to see lab reports. Any company producing a quality product will always have lab reports to back up their products. In these reports you can find things such as: CBD %, THC %, residual solvent content, heavy metals, etc. There are many products out there that have been tested privately revealing low levels to no CBD, higher than legal amounts of THC and all sorts of nasty things you do not want in your body. As with any thing else in life, you get what you pay for. You are taking CBD for the health of your body, make sure it has nothing in it that will harm you and don't make a decision on CBD because it's cheap.
A: Hemp and CBD are recognized as being safe and should not produce side effects in most people, however you should always check with your doctor before adding anything to your daily routine.
A: There are many ways to take CBD and methods that work for some better than others. CBD Oil Tinctures: taken under the tongue and held for several minutes for max absorption. Water Soluble CBD: Our bodies are comprised of mostly water and anything we put in our bodies that is not water soluble will not absorb as efficiently. Edibles: My favorite is the gummy, swallowing it mostly whole allows the cannabinoids to absorb like a time release as the gummy digests. Creams and Salves: Helping with symptoms of pain & skin conditions when applied topically. Bath & Body products: Your skin is the largest living organ on your body. Use a CBD bath bombs, soaps, and lotions to relax sore muscles, reduce inflammation, and decrease pain.
