Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ's

What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It comes directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. CBD is the medicinal compound of the plant. While CBD is one of hundreds of elements found in the cannabis plant, CBD will not get you high! 

Why would I use CBD?

CBD can help manage a variety of conditions, including, but not limited to… everyday aches and pains, Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, Insomnia, Arthritis, Neuropathy, Fibromyalgia, ADHD, Menopause, Migraines, Epilepsy, PCOS, and side-effects associated with cancer treatment.

Is CBD legal?

Yes! The 2018 Farm Bill made all hemp-derived products (CBD) with 0.3% THC or less federally legal. At CBD Comfort Zone, we make sure that all of our products are federally compliant! Our main goal at CBD Comfort Zone is to provide CBD solutions. We DO NOT sell recreational marijuana.

What is the Endocannabinoid System?

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a network of naturally-occurring cannabinoid receptors in your body that allow you to feel CBD’s benefits! The highest concentration of CBD receptors are in the brain, which is why CBD is so effective for pain relief. Each person’s ECS is unique to them!

What is Broad spectrum CBD

Broad spectrum CBD is CBD that has been extracted from the cannabis plant with all of the other compounds from the plant except for THC. That means it contains terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids from the plant. This should not result in psychoactive effects, but there is still more research to be done.

How do I take CBD?

The variety of CBD products out there can be very overwhelming – we are here to help! At CBD Comfort Zone, we sell products that can be applied directly to skin (topicals/creams) or orally ingested (tinctures, vapes, edibles). If you are in the area, come by and visit our store to try our products and find the best solution for you!

What is a Cannabinoid?

Cannabinoids are organic molecules naturally produced by hemp and cannabis which activate two of the body’s central nervous system receptors: CB1 and CB2.*

CB1 receptors are primarily located in the brain, while CB2 receptors are spread throughout the rest of the body.

CBD does not activate the brain’s CB1 receptors, it is largely non-psychoactive. Each of the 100+ known cannabinoids have unique receptor interactions, producing individual results. Research has also shown that cannabinoids’ benefits multiply when used together, producing what is called the “entourage effect.”

*More information on receptor activation and their effects on the body should be researched through reliable sources. We cannot provide health claims.

How much CBD should I take?

A number of factors determine your ideal CBD serving. This can include your weight, metabolism, and genetics, among others. Because each individual’s endocannabinoid system is unique, some people may only require a small amount of CBD to receive their desired benefits, while others may require much higher serving to experience the same effects. If this is your first time trying CBD, we recommend starting with a small serving of only 10-25mg and increasing it later if desired. CBD can take time to work, so wait up to 2 hours before ingesting another serving. Some people may require up to 100-150mg per serving or more of CBD to get the desired effect.

Is CBD Psychoactive?

CBD does not cause the mind-altering “high” that is often sought out amongst cannabis consumers. It’s another compound, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), that causes the mind-altering effects. It is for this reason that CBD is not considered psychoactive. However, the compound does have an effect on the brain and your mood. CBD and THC both engage the brain in different ways. THC binds directly to special locations in the cell known as cannabinoid receptors. These receptors were named after the active compounds in cannabis, called cannabinoids. Both THC and CBD are cannabinoids. THC directly engages cannabinoid receptors, causing a near immediate psychoactive high. CBD, however, engages a different location on these receptors (like a side pocket). While CBD does not produce a stand-apart psychoactive experience by connecting with this location, the molecule does alter the effects of other compounds that try to link up to the same spot.

If I take CBD will I fail a drug test?

Typical UA analysis tests are for THC and not CBD. While some of our products contain traces of THC (less than 0.3% THC), which is legal and very low, you could still possibly fail a drug test. If this is a concern, ask about our CBD products that contain 0 THC.

What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are a class of volatile hydrocarbon compounds produced in the flower clusters of hemp and cannabis plants. Terpenes are naturally present in plants and they contribute to the plants’ unique taste, smell and color. Terpenes have been utilized by humans for millennia in a healing modality known as aromatherapy. Terpenes are recognized as safe for human consumption by the Food and Drug Association and are used in a wide variety of food and cosmetic products. 

What is Full Spectrum CBD Oil?

Full Spectrum CBD Oil is CBD oil that is extracted from the hemp plant with all of the other compounds present in the plant remaining. Meaning, it has not gone through the refinement process necessary to isolate the CBD. Full Spectrum CBD include terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids to help create a full body or “entourage effect.”
