What is CBD?

CBD -

If you’re here, you aren’t here by mistake. CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the most exciting new ventures in the medical and scientific industry as more and more studies are executed on the compound. With so many different varieties and options, you really can’t go wrong with whatever you choose. There’s really just something for everyone!


Of course, with so many details and ins and outs that go into CBD, it can be confusing to understand it and to differentiate it from marijuana or other derivatives. That’s where we come in -- to provide you everything you need to know so you can make the best decision for yourself!


BASIC CBD FACTS -

  • Not all CBD is the same - there’s Full-Spectrum, Broad-Spectrum, and Isolate… which we’ll get into in a bit.
  • CBD does not give you a “high”.
  • CBD is legal to buy and own in all 50 states (as long as it is derived from hemp).
  • CBD is seen as generally safe as it does not affect heart rate, blood pressure, or body temperature, and nor does it affect psychological functions.

CBD and THC - 

Many people get confused when it comes to CBD and THC. A lot of people also tend to avoid CBD because they think there’s large amounts of THC within it, causing them to be put off should they need to get a drug test or simply do not want to feel intoxicating or psychoactive effects. 


CBD and THC come from the same plant (cannabis) but THC is what creates that “high” feeling - not CBD alone. In therapeutic doses, the trace amounts of THC (lower than .3% in Full-Spectrum products) give you a peaceful and relaxed feeling, so there is no need to worry about getting or feeling “high.” CBD is also perfectly safe and non-toxic for animals/pets and is non-psychoactive and non-toxic.


THC is still very much illegal in many U.S. states (and the world) noting that it does cause anxiety in some users and is not safe for animals. Again, in therapeutic doses, CBD with those trace amounts of THC can be highly beneficial. 

 

Different CBD Products & Spectrums - 

There are quite a few different CBD products to choose from based on what suits your needs best. There are vapes, oils, and topical treatments that you can choose from and they all have a plethora of benefits. 


Some of the most popular products are the oils and vapes, which when consumed/ingested can provide the user with anxiety relief, relief of insomnia, PTSD, body soreness/pain, and more. The same can be said for the topical relief treatments which help soothe both skin irritation and inflammation and chronic muscle/general body pain.


Full-Spectrum: Full-Spectrum CBD products consist of multiple cannabis plant extracts, (essential oils, terpenes, and other cannabinoids) They may also contain up to 0.3% of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which may not be suitable for all CBD users, so it’s best to find out what works best for you and research those products!


Broad-Spectrum: This option is best for those who do not wish to have any THC traces in their CBD. Broad-Spectrum consists of a range of natural compounds from the cannabis plant, but usually do not contain any tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).


Isolate: CBD Isolate is a form of CBD which does not contain any THC. (Most other CBD products typically contain a very small amount of THC, so this is also a great option for those not looking to ingest any trace amounts of THC). 


If you’re worried about what exactly is in your CBD, fear not -- you can easily find lab reports for any product you’re looking at on DOPE’s website, listing all ingredients and other details you’ll need to make the best decision and purchase.


Evidence Shown In Medical News Today - 

There is a huge amount of research being done on CBD as it continues to become a go-to natural therapy for many people. A lot of this research is actually funded by the U.S. government, citing anecdotal reports from people who have used it. The WHO (World Health Organization) noted back in 2017 that CBD is completely safe and non-toxic (even in high doses)! Harvard Health also confirmed this in a later 2018 study. 


Whether it’s true-blue scientific research or simple stories passed down the grapevine, take it from the many testimonials on DOPE’s website and see for yourself just how incredible the benefits of our CBD are. 

Since the FDA has not approved the treatment of CBD as a medicinal compound, we cannot market our products a certain way until more research has been conducted to narrow down just how CBD works in a medicinal and therapeutic manner. All data right now is purely anecdotal.
This is one of the most popular questions out there and it’s totally based on what works for YOU. There are topical treatments, capsules, gummies, and vapes, and based on the delivery method you’re aiming for, this will ultimately help you to decide on what product is best. For example, the oil has more diverse delivery methods, but the lotion is specifically for skin contact. Additionally, for those who may want a specific vape experience full of flavor and good taste, you may want to focus on getting a specific flavor of your vape rather than someone who doesn’t really mind the flavor and may even venture more towards the oil. It really is just based on personal preference, so think about what you think is best for yourself before purchasing.
Whatever product you purchase will have recommendations on the dosage you should take in addition to how many times a day. Additionally, it’s important to note that everyone’s bodies are different and will react to different dosages differently. Many will usually start off just taking one capsule, for example, to see how their body reacts. After monitoring bodily reactions, people will increase the dosage or remain the same. It takes a bit of experimentation to figure out what works for you.
You’re not wrong in that there are several other businesses and companies out there promoting CBD products. But what makes DOPE stand out from the rest is that we focus on not only accessibility but also the quality of the products you’re purchasing. DOPE showcases the integrity of our products by presenting lab reports for every product as well so you can ensure you’re purchasing what is advertised. You can 100% trust us to get what you NEED.
As mentioned above, the FDA has not approved the treatment of CBD as a medicinal compound, so we cannot market our products a certain way until more research has been conducted. You may note the anecdotal evidence to make the best decision for yourself if you should take any of these products to ease any anxiety, pain relief, etc.
The FDA has not approved the treatment of CBD as a medicinal compound, so we cannot market our products a certain way until more research has been conducted.
Yes, you are totally fine to mix more than one DOPE CBD product (i.e. the oil and the vapes). Many people actually report that they experience the ultimate benefits of CBD by using more than one product throughout the day.
CBD products must contain less than .3% THC to be legal in the United States.
Hemp and marijuana are different species of Cannabis sativa. With that being said, they are also both bred for different purposes. Industrial hemp is produced by Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can be derived from either Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica.

Additionally, both hemp and marijuana contain CBD, but hemp has a much higher percentage of it (not to confuse that with THC). Hemp actually has lower levels of THC than the marijuana species.
Full-Spectrum CBD is CBD oil that has retained all of its additional phytocannabinoids (CBD-V, CBN, CBG), along with the natural terpenes found in the hemp plant. There are trace amounts of THC in the CBD, slightly below 0.3%, so you will not experience the same “high” of ingesting marijuana.

Broad-Spectrum CBD has all the additional cannabinoids and terpenes of the hemp plant, but without the detectable amount of THC, appearing below a 0.01% threshold.

CBD Isolate is a form of CBD which does not contain any THC. (Most other CBD products typically contain a very small amount of THC, so this is also a great option for those not looking to ingest any trace amounts of THC).
CBD that is extracted from hemp and has less than .3% THC is legal at the federal level. Each U.S. state does have its own laws regarding CBD and therefore the legality of CBD products can vary from state to state.
Absolutely! Feel free to get creative and add some DOPE CBD-infused oils while cooking to get your CBD in via a delicious way.
No, since CBD products contain less than .3% THC, you cannot experience the same “high” feeling you would get from ingesting marijuana.
