CBD FAQ - CBD Frequently asked questions

THE MOST COMMON QUESTIONS

WHAT IS CBD?

Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid discovered in 1940, and is one of some 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. Furthermore, as of 2018, preliminary clinical research on cannabidiol included studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, pain, and more.

HOW DOES CBD WORK?

Cannabidiol (CBD), is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant, and has generated significant interest among scientists and physicians in recent years. But how CBD exerts its therapeutic impact on a molecular level is still being sorted out. Cannabidiol is a pleiotropic drug in that it produces many effects through multiple molecular pathways. The scientific literature has identified more than 65 molecular targets of CBD.

HOW DOES CBD HEAL THE BODY?

Trusted surgeon Dr. David Allen talks about the Endo Cannabinoid System, and how CBD Heals the body..

ARE THERE DIFFERENT TYPES / FORMS OF CBD?

Yes.  We’ve listed the most common below…

CBD Oil

Tinctures

Tinctures are the most common usage of CBD on the market. Compared to any other products, tinctures and concentrates are probably the most pure applications of CBD, because manufacturers don’t do any separate processing of the CBD oil. Some brands do add a little flavor to their tinctures, which makes it easier (and more enjoyable) to take.


CBD Oil Concentrates

Concentrates

CBD concentrates typically contain the strongest dosage of CBD compared to any other type of products. It can contain up to 10 times the concentration compared to other CBD products. In comparison to tinctures, concentrates are also convenient in that it only takes a few seconds to consume, and a lot less chance of things getting messy.


CBD Capsules

Capsules

Using capsules is probably the easiest way to add CBD to your life as a daily supplement. It is much easier to take than tinctures or concentrates. Furthermore, if you take vitamins (or any other supplements), you can just add CBD pills to your daily regimen.


CBD Topicals

Topicals

More brands have started to add CBD in topicals, such as lotions, salve, and lip balms, for its skin benefits. CBD topicals are known to help with chronic pain, inflammation, acne, psoriasis, cancer treatment, anti-aging, and so many more.


CBD Spray

Sprays

CBD sprays are typically the weakest in concentration among the different type of CBD products. Firstly, typical concentration of CBD sprays ranges from 1-3mg. And secondly, compared to other type of products taken orally, it’s harder to measure the exact dosage you take each day, since sprays are a bit more inconsistent.


CBD Vape Pens

Vapes / Inhalants

Based on reviews, smoking or vaporizing CBD vape oil seems to have less effects when compared to other methods of administering CBD, such as tinctures, concentrates, and capsules. On the flip side, others argue that smoking or vaporizing has less drawbacks than taking CBD orally, since ingesting CBD orally could result in inconsistent absorption and a delayed effect.

IS CBD LEGAL IN ARIZONA?
Is CBD Legal In Arizona

The law in Arizona states that cannabidiol (CBD) can only derive from legally harvested industrial which means that the plant can only contain up to .3% THC. None of the plants used during CBD extraction can fall under the component of marijuana by legal definition. This definition includes any cannabidiol that is extracted from the mature stalks, stalk fibers, sterilized seeds, or oil from the industrial hemp plant.

In other words…yes, it is legal as long as it contains less than .3% THC.  Good news is, our CBD contains NO THC!

DO I NEED A MEDICAL MARIJUANA CARD TO PURCHASE CBD PRODUCTS?

No medical marijuana card is required to legally purchase or possess CBD products.

WILL CBD PRODUCTS MAKE ME FAIL A DRUG TEST?

Drug tests test for the presence of THC.  Since none of the products WE sell contain THC…no you will not fail a drug test.  With that said, beware of CBD that has not been lab-tested, and checked for THC levels…even if it has the legal limit of just .3% THC if you use it on a regular basis it CAN make you test positive.

DOES YOUR CBD OIL CONTAIN THC?

The analysis certificate below is from one of our CBD products.  Each is lab-tested for verification.  As you can see, there is NO THC present in the sample.  By the way, you can also see the TRUE amount of CBD present in the sample.  Does your CBD provider do this?  If not buyer beware!

CBD Certificate of Analysis
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF CBD? IS IT SAFE?

Cannabidiol is a 100% natural molecule that influences millions of receptors and regions of the body and brain. CBD is controlled by the nociceptive neurons of the “Immune System” which means causes no harm. Should you experience any unfavorable reactions such as loose stool or light headed, stop taking it or at least “reduce” your dosage as it may be just too much to start.

We recommend people start with 5 to 10 mg per day and “slowly” increase as needed. Each person’s dose is unique to their body. CBD cannot cause “side effects” so if you experience any Side Effects, it is likely caused by something else especially if you are taking any Prescription Medications. It is your responsibility to look up the Side Effects of the Prescriptions medication you are taking as this is likely the reason for any side effect, and consult your Primary Care physician.

DO YOU HAVE TO BE 21 TO BUY CBD PRODUCTS IN ARIZONA?

It’s up to the business. Most stores don’t even allow minors inside, and some require that you be 21 or older to buy CBD products.

DO I NEED A PRESCRIPTION TO GET CBD PRODUCTS?

Although its recommended that you inform your doctor that you intend on taking CBD products, there is no prescription required to buy or possess CBD.

CBD FAQ

WHAT IS THE QUALITY OF YOUR PRODUCTS? WHERE ARE THEY MADE?

We sell only the highest quality, lab-tested, lab manufactured CBD products that have been verified to contain NO THC.  Certificate of Analysis’ are always available upon request.

HOW IS YOUR CBD EXTRACTED?
90% of our labs use CO2 extraction. CO2 extraction is the best method to extract pure CBD isolate, in which state it exists as a clear/white crystal. This method is preferred over other methods because it leaves practically zero traces of chemical contaminants in the end product. Newer products are coming with Fractal Distillation to retain Terpenes.
WHAT KIND OF SCAMS SHOULD I BE AWARE OF REGARDING CBD OIL?

Beware of any online sites offering “Trial Programs”.  They will take your money and you will never see your product.  Always buy from a reputable re-seller that can be verified with an email address, a local phone number, or even better a physical store.

QUESTIONS CLIENTS ASKED US IN STORE OR ONLINE

DOES CBD INTERACT WITH OTHER MEDICATIONS?

CBD Oil can interact with other medications to make them more effective, or less effective just as graperuit juice can.  It is recommended to use your CBD an hour before or after taking your regular medications.

CBD influences the Immune system through Non Ceceptic Neurons in the brain, therefore CBD cannot cause harm to us. We have seen “in RARE instances” a few people with slight reactions such as loosening of stool due to taking too much at one time.  Also, people on Blood Pressure Medications because CBD wants to balance the blood pressure. If you are on Blood Pressure meds, you always want to monitor your blood pressure, and if you feel dizzy at all stop taking it.

THIS IS WHY WE START EVERYONE BETWEEN 5 to 10 mg to start. This is so that we do not overload the receptors to quickly. Everyone’s dose is unique to their metabolism as well, and any herbs or medications are in the system. So a mix of anything –  even herbs can cause some type of reaction.  For instance, some people who take the Rhodilia or Ashwanga herbs may get hives. This is not painful, just the body saying, I don’t like the mix – so you stop…we recommend no flavor for this reason.

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT DOSE OF CBD I SHOULD TAKE?

While we wish we could provide the public with a mathematical CBD dosage calculator, it isn’t quite that simple – EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT.

With these facts in mind, most people who are new to cannabidiol begin their journey by starting with the minimal suggested CBD dosage on any product, then gradually increasing the dose until they achieve the desired results.

HOW IS CBD TAKEN?

Most CBD medications are taken orally via oil drops that are placed under the tongue and held for 60 seconds before swallowing.Capsules, Topical creams and ointments are also effective, as is vaping CBD.

IS CBD NATURAL?

Yes, CBD is a 100% naturally-occurring chemical compound that comes directly from the cannabis plant. It is not synthetically made.

IS IT SAFE TO PURCHASE CBD ONLINE?

Yes, as long as CBD is legal in your state, like it is in Arizona.  Always buy from a reputable re-seller that can be verified with an email address, a local phone number, or even better a physical store.

ARE THERE MEDICAL STUDIES ON CBD?

Thousands of scientific/medical peer-reviewed studies have been carried out specifically on CBD. Project CBD is a non-profit organization strictly dedicated to documenting the research progress on this incredible drug.

CAN I COOK WITH CBD?

Recently people have been getting creative with the use of Cannabidiol. CBD is being added to all sorts of products. Unfortunately, these people and companies do not understand the molecule well enough to ensure their clients that the use is legitimate.

This is especially true when it comes to cooking with CBD. It is one thing to add CBD to your home made salad dressing. Although, this will be very wasteful, as dressings get all over the plate or bowl adding to the waste factor. Quality CBD is not inexpensive, so you want ZERO waste. You want to utilize ALL the material with no waste.

This holds true for “Cooking with CBD”. If you sprinkle cbd isolate powder on your burger, or add it to the meat prior to cooking, it will be burned off under high heat and you will not be getting the medicine into your body. This is a simple fact and should be avoided at all costs. Recently Carl’s Jr. stated they have a CBD Burger, so don’t waste your money!

Excellent staff, very helpful. I purchase the CBD oil for my 14 year female Lab mix.   She suffers with stiff hips and back legs. Since I have been giving this to her for the last 2 months she is feeling so much better, not so stiff and sleeps comfortably the whole night and her walking has improved. Definitely recommend this product, it really works.

Pain Relief for Degenerative Disc Disease, Arthritis and Scoliosis

I have severe spinal scoliosis with a 25 degree thoracic curve to the right and a 45+ degree lumbar curve to my left.  I also have arthritis in my spinal facet joints, as well as my hands, and degenerative disc disease in both my cervical and lumbar spine.  For the last 20 years I took Alleve every day to relieve pain, which had begun to affect my kidney function.

Although I still lived with pain every day and had many physical restrictions as a result, I would not allow myself to take prescription pain medication.

Approximately 9 months ago I started taking CBD oil morning and evening, as well as using the lotion.  I began to feel relief in about a week and after 2  - 3 weeks, I stopped taking Alleve completely.   Since that time I am nearly completely pain free.  My physical activity has improved dramatically and my life is so much better!
I use the 2500 mg tincture and take 30 mg twice daily.  I also use the 1000mg lotion and apply it twice daily to my back and as needed, but generally once daily, to the arthritic joints in my hands.  For me, CBD has been a miracle!

CBD Has Vastly Improved My Health...

CBD has vastly improved my health and the quality of my life. I have suffered several spinal injuries resulting in daily pain, stiffness and range of motion issues. I also encounter neurological issues such as anxiety and depression at times, it kind of ebbs and flows as far as the severity of these issues, I also always felt sort of a brain fog. I was in pain all of the time and as a result I had gained an extra 70 lbs. Very quickly, I was declining both mentally and physically. I noticed very rapid improvements in my mental health. My mind became focused enough to make the necessary changes in my life to improve my physical health and now my pain is totally managed with cbd. I have lost the weight, discontinued all of my rx pills, my anxiety and depression are under control and for the first time in a long I have a positive outlook for my future. The staff takes the time to educate you and give you dosing instructions, I got almost no instruction from the marijuana dispensary where my health journey started and I purchased my first bottle. Any information that I did get turned out to be incorrect. The book of test results that they showed me gave me confidence that I was taking a quality product that was what is says on the label.

They're Not All About The Money...

azWHOLEistic is amazing! I went in looking for suggestions to remedy my pain and lack of sleep. I had tennis elbow, was recovering from a bicep surgery and severely suffering from restless leg syndrome. Add on to that, I also battled with anxiety during the day. Nothing was working to help me rest so I decided to try CBD oil. Ann at azWHOLEistic was extremely helpful. She gave me an overview on how the oils can work and determined the right dosage for me, one dose in the morning and one before bed. I swear not more than a few days passed before I was finally sleeping through the night! No pain in the mornings and no anxiety during the day. I was able to focus at work without any "drugged up" or drowsy feelings. I'm a believer for life, the CBD oil has been a game changer. Now I'm on a regular check up basis with Ann where we discuss what my dosages are doing for me and she helps adjust if needed. They're not all about the money, they really try to get you the most for your dollar. They're focus is on your well being which is a welcomed change in today's health world.

Highly Recommend!

Stopped in this store and first impression was WOW! Educational material everywhere, welcoming staff, polite and not only did they answer all our questions, but they showed us test results from a Lab on CBD we used in the past with no results. Now we know why. There was less than half of the CBD in the bottle. They gave us the # of the lab to call if we want to confirm. Before we got home we both could feel the difference. My pain went down by 80% from the cream and my wife used a pen for her anxiety. Highly recommend this store. you wont be disappointed.
