A: CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of the hundreds of complex compounds that are naturally-occurring within hemp and marijuana plants.
A: No, CBD is nonpsychoactive meaning there are no mind-altering effects. THC is what accounts for psychoactivity. As long as you are using a hemp-derived CBD product with 0.3% THC or less, these products will not get you high. Cibadol maintains strict testing standards to ensure our THC content remains minimal and legal in all 50 states.
A: CBD does not have any long-term, adverse side effects. While generally well-tolerated, CBD can cause dry mouth, changes in appetite, fatigue, and diarrhea. Side effects are often the result of improper dosage, incompatible product (full-spectrum vs. isolate), potential drug interactions, or a poorly formulated CBD product.
A: Yes, CBD temporarily deactivates the cytochrome p450 system which is responsible for metabolizing the majority of traditional pharmaceuticals and supplements. Always speak to your healthcare professional before trying CBD.
A: Dosage and frequency vary from individual to individual, making self-experimentation essential. Rest assured that CBD remains non-toxic in large doses and doesn’t pose the risk of overdose or dependency, making self-experimentation safe.
A: No, CBD remains safe and non-toxic in large doses and does not pose any risk of overdose.
A: No, CBD does not pose any risk for dependency, tolerance, or withdrawal.
A: There currently are no federal regulations establishing an age requirement for taking CBD. Cibadol products are intended for adults who are 18 and older. It is up to parent or guardian discretion to speak with their pediatricians to discuss the best course of action for their children.

A: Full-spectrum CBD products contain the comprehensive cannabinoid and terpene profile that’s meant to mimic the whole plant content of hemp. These products contain 0.3% THC. Broad-spectrum CBD products also contain the comprehensive cannabinoid and terpene profile but without THC. These products are ideal for individuals interested in the entourage effect but do not wish to ingest any THC. CBD isolate products only contain 99+% pure CBD with no other cannabinoid or terpene content. However, some CBD isolate products may be formulated with additional cannabinoids or terpenes.

Full-spectrum products may be better suited for certain conditions but can also trigger a reaction in some individuals that are prone to plant allergies. Individuals that experience this may find better therapeutic value with a CBD isolate product.

When it comes to administration, personal preference is generally the best way to choose between topical vs. tincture vs. softgels, etc.

A: Scientists hypothesize that the entourage effect is the synergetic relationship between all the complex compounds including cannabinoids and terpenes that are naturally-occurring in cannabis plants.

Broad-spectrum and CBD isolate products shouldn’t cause this issue, however, it’s always important to check product COAs and err on the side of safety.

A: CBD works by interacting with our endocannabinoid system. This crucial lock and key mechanism is responsible for regulating major physiological functions. When our bodies produce endocannabinoids, they attach to corresponding cannabinoid receptors to nudge all systems towards homeostasis. CBD triggers the same reaction, causing this harmonic response. Learn more about the body’s endocannabinoid system.

A: While CBD and THC are both naturally-occurring compounds in cannabis plants, THC is psychoactive while CBD is nonpsychoactive.

A: Carrier oils are added to CBD product formulations to deliver better bioavailability. CBD has a hydrophobic nature that mixes optimally with oil.

  1. Steam distillation: In Steam Distillation, water boils to generate steam through the plant material. This steam allows the oil to get separated from the plant.
  2. Supercritical CO2 extraction: CO2 reaches a gaseous and liquid state at high and low temperatures. A supercritical state comes when the temperature goes below 69 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Oil extraction: Plant material is processed to blend into alcohol, oil or water. By that time, cannabinoids get dissolved into a carrier liquid.
  4. Solvent extraction: During extracting CBD from hemp, solvents like hydrocarbons and alcohols, including ethanol, hexane, butane, and propane, are considered safe components GRAS.

Other methods of extracting CBD from Hemp are Dry Ice Extraction, Hydrocarbon Extraction, and Vegetable Oil Extraction.

However, many human and animal studies show that CBD protects against alcohol-induced cell damage and reduces blood alcohol concentration and addiction and withdrawal symptoms.

A: A 2020 study published in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association found no evidence that CBD is not safe for driving. However, the compound impacts people differently, so it’s not recommended to drive the first time you take it. This is true for any type of supplement or medicine you consume.
