WHAT IS CBD? - Frequently asked questions


CBD is one of over 119 cannabinoids found in various plants across the globe. Cannabinoids are found in many plants. The highest concentrations found to date are in Hemp and Cannabis. Hemp is the male plant while Cannabis is the female plant. Hemp has much lower percentages of THC than Cannabis and as a result has a higher % of CBD making it a perfect plant to extract the oil for human use.


Cannabidiol (CBD), is a non-intoxicating molecule derived from hemp, 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

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

Yes.  We’ve listed the most common below…


CBD 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

CBD 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

CBD Capsules

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


CBD Topicals

More brands have started to add CBD in topicals, such as lotions, salve, and lip balms, for its skin benefits.

CBD Spray

CBD 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 Inhalation

Inhaling or nebulizing CBD as we like to call it is quite convenient as they are portable and can be used on the go.



So,  is CBD Oil legal in Arizona? The law in Arizona states that cannabidiol (CBD) can only derive from legally harvested industrial hemp, 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 is CBD legal in Arizona?…yes, as long as it contains less than .3% THC.  Good news is, our CBD contains NO THC!

Which Countries Allow CBD or Which Countries Do Not Allow CBD

Free PDF Download with information on which countries allow CBD, or do NOT allow CBD.  Information current as of 3/2020.  It is always best to check with local authorities before travelling abroad with your CBD, including law enforcement, airlines, train services etc.  This document is for general information purposes only.  No Credit Card info is required to download.

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

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.

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!

Cannabidiol is a 100% natural molecule. 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 suggest people start with 5 to 10 mg per day and “slowly” increase as needed. Each person’s dose is unique to their body. 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.

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


We sell only the highest quality, lab-tested, ISO Certified lab manufactured CBD products derived from industrial grown hemp extract that has been verified to contain NO THC.  Certificate of Analysis’ are always available upon request.

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.

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.



Research has shown that CBD oil with NO THC is non addictive.

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

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.

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 inhaling or nebulizing CBD as we like to call it.

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

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.

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:

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!

Very Thankful

One of my specialist doctors recommended I try CBD from azWHOLEistic, as I have been experiencing arthritis-like autoimmune pain and swelling for 6 months. Most likely caused by extreme stress and anxiety in the beginning of 2021. Nothing shows up in blood tests except for high generalized inflammatory markers. Jenny at the Sun City location helped me make the choice of CBG as an alternative medicine to try to decrease the inflammation. After only 2 weeks, it worked! My latest bloodwork showed that my inflammatory markers, while still a little high, decreased by more than 50%. My pain and discomfort is also significantly decreased and I feel I am also handling my stress much better. I'm very thankful to have tried this!!

TRU Infusion CBD and Pain Lotion

I have been using both products for over 6 months now and am always satisfied with the results.  The pain lotion I use for my arthritic hands and the MCT Oil Tincture for the pain in my back.  Both really do the job.  The price and availability are great too.

CBD For Crohns

I have been coming here for 4/5 months now for my hemp products to help with my Crohn’s and general pain. The product I’ve been using has been a lifesaver for me, especially when working 45-50hrs a week and having a weaker immune system. Jenny and Esteban are amazing and I will keep coming back.

CBD For Ostearthritis - Great Suggestion From Jenny!

I was desperate to find a CBD dispensary that was open after 6:30 on a Friday. I found azWHOLEistic from google and made it here ten minutes before closing, and thank God for Jenny!  Her knowledge was such that I was able to quickly narrow down exactly what I needed for my osteoarthritis and sleep issues. The customer service was the perfect blend of personal and professional that I now have no desire to search for another Cbd dispensary. This one will be my go to. Thank you so much. I am grateful to have found your store. 🙂

Fantastic Results

I use the CBD oil on a sciatic problem and the results have been fantastic. In less than 2 weeks I could sleep through the night for the first time in years. I also recommend the pain slave for any aches and pains you may have. Once again these products will generally exceed your expectations. The staff is very knowledgable as well, which is so helpful. Great products, great people!

Wonderful Company and Product

I can't say enough about AZ Wholeistic.  The company is top notch from their customer service, to their willingness and ability to educate us all about CBD to their excellent products.  I know that I can trust their products and in the CBD marketplace, that is 100% necessary these days.  I have been using their CBD, primarily for peaceful sleep for several years and I will continue to do so.

CBD For Spinal Stenosis

I have been here twice for my 1500 mg cbd lotion. All I can say is WOW! I have spinal stenosis and there are days that I just cannot even get out of bed. But with this cbd it relieves my pain within 20 minutes or so. Thank you Jenny amd Jason for being so helpful. I recommend this to anyone in pain. I also recently tried it on my headaches and worked beautifully.

Great Service

Jason is great, and so far the results from taking CBD have been impressive! I suffer from chronic pain, and anxiety...CBD has helped a lot with that! My wife was skeptical but started trying it too; we have seen a dramatic decrease in her migraine occurrences, as well as intensity. Her sleep has improved, and her anxiety was seriously reduced!

Best Customer Service

This is by far the best CBD dispensary in the Valley. As an industry professional (on the marijuana side) I truly appreciate the knowledge and care with which azWHOLEistic treats everyone who walks in the door. If you are in the market for CBD products or if you want to see what CBD can do for you or someone you love, stop by and let Jeff (even though he spells his name provide you with the best customer service and expertise in the market. azWHOLEistic is the only CBD dispensary I trust for quality products and information.

Sleeping Deeply

I came into the store thinking I would just try the pain lotion and go home and see how it worked.  I applied the lotion and talked with the very knowledgable sales person there.  In a matter of minutes, the pain in my hands had gone away.  I find I hardly need to reapply the lotion and now am taking the oral MCT oil tincture daily and pain in body is gone and sleeping really deeply.

CBD For Dogs

We don't say it lightly that AzWHOLEistic and the cbd oil we now purchase have been the tools God has used to allow us to see a real life miracle! 6 weeks ago, we made the heart breaking decision to put our 14 1/2 year old dog down. While otherwise extremely healthy, we found out he had a growth on his spine that was pressing on a nerve and not allowing his muscle to fire so much so that his back leg atrophied almost completely in about a week. We could only conclude he was in extreme pain. We started him on cbd oil as a means to make him as comfortable as possible while we arranged for in-home euthanasia. When my husband went into azWHOLEistic, he was in tears. The staff took time to genuinely help us by asking questions, explaining our options, giving thorough instructions and encouraging him. It was far greater service than we've ever received from a vet. We've since been back and have received the same extraordinary care. They know what they're talking about and are so kind. We weren't expecting this, but our dog has made pretty significant improvements! He takes short walks whenbefore, he could barely stand. He is so much like his old self that we can tell he is not suffering like he was, which is all we want for him. He is still with us and was able to see another Thanksgiving, another half-birthday, and find out he is going to be a big brother! We are taking it one day at a time, but we know we have been given the gift of time with him and we are so grateful for each day. We don't even want to think about what it would look like if we hadn't gone into azWHOLEistic when we did. Thank you azWHOLEistic for the products, the cars, and the life change you've given us. We are so grateful!

CBD For Arthritis Pain

Hi, I am writing to say thank you to Jason. My 94 year old mom who lives just up the road from you at The Gardens of Sun City came in about two weeks ago. She was skeptical about CBDs but has very bad arthritis pain. Jason was very helpful in helping her select a tincture that would be appropriate for her- 750mg oil. It has proved to be a game changer!! I just came back to Durango CO, where I live after visiting her in Sun City, and was so impressed with her progress while I was there. I stopped by the store and talked with Ms. Breckenridge, who was also very knowledgable, but wanted to say thank you to Jason personally. My mom is in a wheelchair, slight little Italian woman with short white hair (I know that describes most women in that area!) who came in with her assisted-living van driver.
Again- thank you Jason! It was so good to see her pain at bay.

CBD For Neck Pain

Very knowledgeable group. Went through a couple bottles of CBD Oils then Chris made a suggestion that maybe I should try the straight CBD Crystal form. So glad that I did. First time for me to sleep through the night due to my nerve pain in neck. I believe in this that I went back and bought two more jars from Jason and he explained to me on how to adjust my dosage. I also use the REM for sleep. My ultimate goal is to be able to stop using tylenol and benadryl.
