What is the difference between CBD oil and 100% hemp oil?
Hemp oil is the name given any oil derived from the hemp plant; CBD oil is an oil containing high amounts of CBD, made from either the hemp or the cannabis plant. While much CBD oil is also hemp oil, not all hemp oil is CBD oil; hemp oil made from the seeds of the hemp plant will not contain active CBD.
What are the Most Popular Effects of CBD?
Why do people love CBD so much? Because of the amazing benefits that CBD offers to them, of course!
Some of the most popular and most loved benefits of CBD reported include an elevated mood, increased productivity and happiness due to this elevated mood, acne relief, arthritis relief, joint and muscle pain relief, chronic pain relief, lowered cravings for cigarettes, lowered anxiety and stress levels, stopping nausea, reduced depression, reduction in frequency and severity of seizures, and even neuro protective benefits for your brain.
Obviously, there are a lot of reasons to love CBD! While these claims are purely anecdotal — meaning the Food and Drug Administration has not backed them up — the reports from people all over the world are enough to make many people stop and consider trying CBD for themselves.

How long does it take to work?
When taking enough, it generally only takes about 20-30 minutes for it become effective. Most people when first starting out, do not know what to expect and often overlook that it is beginning to help their condition. Since there is no “high” to report, most people don’t know that it is doing anything. Only after a while do they realize that any pain they may have had is no longer there or not as intense. The “feeling” is so subtle that usually, all that is able to be identified is a subtle calming. After several uses, many people have reported that they now notice it “taking the edge” off minutes after administering. But, for most newcomers, they expect a huge change and its just not like that, unless it’s being used for pain management. A gentle release of the pain is usually fairly noticeable when taking these products in proper amounts.
IF I’M TAKING THE DROPS, HOW WILL I KNOW HOW MANY DROPS TO USE? THE BOTTLE SAYS: SERVING SIZE – 10 DROPS.
This is an excellent question. First, let’s talk about the posted Serving Size: The FDA makes us treat these products as a food product. And, as such, we HAVE TO post some arbitrary Serving Size on the product. But, it is just that, ARBITRARY
Now, as for how many drops, I always suggest starting slow, and adding drops as you go along until you obtain the benefits you desire. The first few times you use the oil, it may be easiest to take the dropper and count drops into a spoon. In this manner, you can judge where in the dropper the line of oil should sit to give you your proper amount.
What should I look for when choosing a CBD oil?
Because CBD oil is not yet heavily regulated by the government, it’s easy for companies to sell products that contain little to no CBD… or that contain nasty little extras you’d rather avoid (like heavy metals or pesticides).
To make sure that you’re opting for only the best CBD oil, choose products manufactured with organic hemp under GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) systems.
Also be sure you’re opting for CBD oils extracted with CO2 rather than butane, and don’t be afraid to ask for lab tests from the company if they are not already prominently displayed on the company website: any reputable company producing CBD oil properly will be happy to provide this information, which indicates not only how much CBD is present in a given oil but also the presence of any pesticides or heavy metals.
