Frequently Asked Questions ABOUT CBD

What is cannabidiol or CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is an organic compound extracted from the hemp plant. It is the most renowned cannabinoid in the hemp plant for several reasons. First, it does not have any psychoactive effects, so it does not give users the “high” associated with THC. Second, it has been singled out for its effectiveness in helping people who suffer from anxiety, sleep disorders, pain conditions and more.

Is CBD legal?

Yes. The 2018 Farm Bill legalized the growing, processing, and selling of hemp extracts. CBD and hemp are now 100% legal in all 50 states.  

Have Cornbread Hemp products been third party lab tested?

Absolutely! We’ll never release in house testing results for our products. That’s like buying a used car with a written title, who would do that? To view our third party lab results, click here.  

Will using CBD get me “high”?

No. Full-spectrum CBD oil does contain trace amounts of THC, less than 0.3%, the legal limit, which helps to improve the “entourage effect” of cannabinoids working together to maximize their impact in the body, but not nearly enough THC to get you high. Each of our products is made using a full spectrum golden heart distillate extract from Kentucky grown organic hemp. 

What is the “entourage effect”?

The “entourage effect” describes the effects of cannabinoids when working together, rather than separated into in an isolate form. Research has shown that cannabinoids work best when they have company.

How will CBD affect my body?

CBD works in the body by interacting with the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system helps to regulate other systems in the body, bringing everything closer to a homeostatic equilibrium. This is why CBD seems to help many different aspects of human health — by activating your body’s own endocannabinoid system to achieve a healthy balance.

What is the endocannabinoid system?

The endocannabinoid system is a complex arrangement of receptors in the nervous systems of all mammals, including humans. These receptors affect other body systems to help regulate your appetite, sleep, mood, inflammation, and pain.

How long does it take to feel the effects of CBD?

Depending on the delivery method and the dosage-to-body-weight ratio, you may begin to feel the effects of taking CBD in up to 30 minutes. After taking a regular daily done for a week or two, you should see a significant decrease in symptoms. We recommend trying CBD for 90 days to see its full potential benefits.

What makes hemp different from marijuana?

The difference between legal hemp and illegal marijuana is the level of THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. According to current federal law, hemp plants are legal as long as the THC level is below 0.3%.

Will using CBD show up on a drug test?

We cannot guarantee that you will pass a drug test after using our products, even though our products are legal. Our products contain less than 0.3% THC, but there is a risk in failing a drug test from any hemp-derived extract. Consult your doctor, and maybe your HR department.

What’s the proper way to store CBD products?

Our products are sensitive to direct sunlight and extreme temperatures, so it’s best to store in a cool, dry place without exposure to sunlight.

Is there an expiration date for CBD products?

With proper storage, Cornbread hemp CBD products are good for one year.

CBD isolate vs. full-spectrum CBD

An informed CBD consumer needs to know the difference between “full spectrum CBD” and “CBD isolate.” These terms are related to how the hemp is processed and both methods have their advantages and downsides. We only used full spectrum extracts in our products because we believe there is enough evidence showing that all cannabinoids together produce what is known as the “entourage effect.” CBD isolate does not contain any other cannabinoids, and therefore loses much of its efficacy as a beneficial ingredient. 

What is full-spectrum CBD?

Full-spectrum CBD is a distillation of hemp biomass that contains high levels of CBD along with other cannabinoids naturally present in the cannabis plant — like cannabidiol acid (CBDA), cannabidivarin (CBDV), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabigerol (CBG), and cannabinol (CBN) — including a microdose of THC that by law must be less than 0.3%. Full-spectrum also includes other phytochemicals like terpenes, which are flavor molecules that give hemp plants their smell and contribute to the full-spectrum entourage effect.
