Let’s answer some questions about the hemp CBD that many people have. What is it? What’s it for? Is it safe? Isn’t it all the same? Will it get me high?
FIRST: It’s important to note that we’re talking about CBD hemp oil, which is not to be confused with just hemp oil. They are two different things while being from the same family. To better understand this just think of a garden family – such as Solanaceae – The nightshade family. Members of this family include tomatoes, peppers (both sweet and hot), eggplants, tomatillos and potatoes (but not sweet potatoes). We all know we would not make hash browns out of peppers or tomatoes right? I suppose we could but would we? I think not. Same thing applies to Hemp and Marijuana. Same family, two different things.

Hemp CBD Oil will NOT get you high because CBD oil derived from industrial hemp and is non-psychoactive. The high is caused by THC which is so minimal in Hemp it’s hardly worth noting. If someone tells you they got “high” from Hemp CBD, they were, more than likely, using a marijuana derived CBD oil. One must understand what they are buying.
Funny story: I recently read where someone went through a hemp farmers field and cut the tops out of most of the plants and took them. I imagine someone thought they were getting marijuana and while it’s not funny about the loss to the farmer, it is quite comical imagining the thieves smoking hemp.
CBD stands for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol, is one of the primary natural cannabinoids found in the industrial hemp plant. Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids derived from plants. Endocannabinoids are cannabinoids produced naturally in the human body. They like each other.
How Does CBD Work? CBD primarily interacts with your body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS regulates processes in the body and their receptors are found in the following areas: the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each area, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same – To maintain internal stability (homeostasis.)
Is it safe? The World Health Organization report from 2018 says CBD is considered “”” safe, well tolerated, and not associated with any significant adverse public health effects. Moreover, they went on to say that it is “not associated with abuse potential and does not induce physical dependence.” According to a 2015 Senate testimony by Dr. Nora Volkov published by the U.S. Department of (HHS) – CBD is actually quite safe. In her words: “despite its molecular similarity to THC, CBD only interacts with cannabinoid receptors weakly at very high doses, and the alterations in thinking and perception caused by THC are not observed with CBD. The different pharmacological properties of CBD give it a different safety profile from THC.”amzn_assoc_tracking_id = “onlytoday02-20”; amzn_assoc_ad_mode = “manual”; amzn_assoc_ad_type = “smart”; amzn_assoc_marketplace = “amazon”; amzn_assoc_region = “US”; amzn_assoc_design = “enhanced_links”; amzn_assoc_asins = “B07W4BKS15”; amzn_assoc_placement = “adunit”; amzn_assoc_linkid = “6cac9d02e014b9e6c3cf38f5d376497f”; //z-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/onejs?MarketPlace=US
NOT all CBD products are created equal. Not by a long shot. PLEASE do not pick up any ol’ product just because someone “said” it was the best. Considering the current unregulated state of CBD, there are a lot of really sketchy companies out there that are currently selling some sketchy products. Some may claim they are pure, when in fact they contain hardly any of the compound at all. Some companies lack quality control or may not even know the source of the product they are selling.
My advice is to be very wary when shopping around. Do your research and only buy from a reputable company. Always look them up first.
Where do they source their products?
Do they offer a good guarantee?
Do they have excellent customer reviews?
Do they state where the product is grown?
Is it grown organically?
Is their extraction method safe?
Does it have additives and if so what are they?
I DECIDED TO FIND THE BEST CBD company (in my opinion.) I started out with 2019 reviews of the top 20 and used the criteria I stated above. Narrowed that down to 10, then 5 and then 2. I talked to people at the company of those last two. I settled on CBDPURE. Did you know they have a 90 DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE ?? YEP – you read that right. 90 DAYS.
From their website:
CBDPure oils are made with non-GMO hemp, grown in Colorado by local farmers. Our hemp oil is minimally processed by following the highest organic standards at every step of our growing, harvesting, and bottling process. We use no chemical herbicides or pesticides, and no artificial additives or preservatives are added to our oils.
Before any of our CBD products leave our facility, we sample and test each batch to ensure that it meets the purity standards that we demand. From soil to oil, we have a stringent testing program at every step. Our finished CBD oil is not just tested internally, every batch is also third-party lab tested for potency and quality and these lab results are made public to our customers.
Every batch of our CBD oil undergoes a supercritical CO2 Extraction process to create a pure, clean, quality oil. CO2 Extraction is the safest method for extracting CBD from hemp plants.
Unlike other extraction methods that may require many hours to purge toxic solvents trapped in the oil, CO2 fluid extraction methodology delivers a clean, unaltered and consistent product.
Evaporated CO2 from the CO2 extraction process leaves you with virtually no residual solvent. The CBD oil obtained through CO2 extraction is a full spectrum cannabinoid-rich product.
In addition to the non-toxic CO2 extraction method, the organic hemp seed oil that is paired with our highly concentrated CBD oil is cold pressed to retain its nutritional value and flavor.
When you buy a CBDPure product, you are buying the purest CBD oil from natural sources, that is 100% free of any synthetic or artificial ingredients. We test every batch of oil that we process to ensure that it meets the purity standards that we demand.
At CBDPure, we are proud of our firm policy against animal-testing.
Ingredients: full-spectrum oil in a hemp carrier oil base
Besides the oils and softgels – they carry CBD Infused Muscle & Joint cream that’s a powerful formula of plant-based compounds that support healthy muscle and joint management. It works for people of all ages and lifestyles and can be used in sports training/recovery, to relieve minor aches and pains, to reduce inflammation and stiffness, and to maintain optimal wellness at the specific areas where the cream is applied. NOTE: I have not seen this brand new product pop up on their website but I have a couple in stock if your interested.
They also carry PET CBD
How Much Should I Use?
For those just starting out, or needing only a small “boost” to their health, CBDPure 300 provides an economical way to experience first-hand the effects of supplementing with CBD. Each 2-ounce bottle provides a minimum of 300 Milligrams of natural cannabidiol, delivering 10 milligrams to your system with each daily ½ dropper of oil.
For those looking for increased benefit, relief from certain aches and pains, or who may be dealing with moderate sleep or mood concerns, our CBDPure 600 provides twice the dosage of CBD of our CBDPure 300 option, also in a 2-ounce bottle. Providing over 20 milligrams of concentrated CBD with each daily dose, it provides a more powerful option for users looking to get more of the health benefits and effects of using CBD oil. The CBDPure 600 is our most popular option of our line of CBD oils.
CBDPure 1000 is our strongest and most concentrated oral oil available. Like our other oil options, it uses full-spectrum oil in a hemp carrier oil base, but at the highest concentration possible while still maintaining compliance with industrial hemp rules governing maximum cannabinoid content. CBDPure 1000 provides over 33 milligrams of daily cannabidiol to your body. CBDPure 1000 is our most potent oil, formulated to serve the needs of customers who need the greatest concentration of CBD in each daily dose.
Our 750 Softgels is a higher-potency option that could be taken in a daily pill form. Each soft gel is loaded with our same full-spectrum cannabidiol oil, in a convenient oral capsule rather than our standard carrier hemp oil. Soft gels provide 25 milligrams of purified natural CBD in each easy-to-swallow soft gel. Our soft gels provide a powerful alternative for users who prefer the convenience of a simple pill over a dropper of oil. Soft gels are the most powerful option we offer in terms of maximum CBD content per daily recommended serving size.

A Short history of CBD oil: 1940 -| Roger Adams isolates CBD from marijuana, but didn’t exactly know what he had found. 1946 -| Dr. Walter S. Loewe conducts the first CBD tests on lab animals. 1964 – Raphael Mechoulam isolates and describes the chemical structure of CBD. In the Late1960’s -Mechoulam and his lab begin testing their isolated cannabinoids on primates. Mid-1970’s – A cannabis tincture is released for medicinal use by the British Pharmacopoeia. 1978 – New Mexico becomes the first U.S. state to “legally” acknowledge cannabis as a medicine. 1980 – Mechoulam teams up with South American researchers to publish study on cannabis and epilepsy. 1996 – California becomes the first state to legalize medical marijuana. October 7, 2003 – The United States government patents CBD as a neuroprotectant under U.S. Patent #6,630,507 ( and a very wacky thing for the US Department of HHS to receive a patent on CBD – but at the same time it remained on the list of scheduled narcotics.) 2013 -The story of Charlotte Figi surfaces. (The Charlotte’s Web Story) 2014 – Several states pass legislation for the legalization of CBD. 2017 – steps initiated for potential FDA approval of CBD as a medicine.

Good read! Very informative and just the info I was looking for!
I think CBD definitely intimidates a lot of people, but I think it’s just because they don’t know exactly what it is & what it can do for them! I love using CBD!

great information because I think I also tend to confuse the 2; hemp and Mary Jane
Good information here. I use CBD oil everyday. It helps me with: PTSD, ADHD, Asperger’s and anxiety.
If I start having serious problems with those issues mentioned above, I use Medical Marijuana.
Very interesting! I had looked into CBD oil to help my dog with his seizures, but we ended up with a drug cocktail that worked for him so never went that route.
Thanks for doing the research for me! I’ve been wanting to find one for my Mr. Menace to try. Now I know what to get and I will, right after I double check with his doctors that it’s ok for him to use.
CBD Oil is now big business here in Canada – especially in the past year. We use it in a salve made with peppermint and chamomile as well for muscle aches and pains and to soothe arthritis flareups for my daughter. Thanks for the post!
