Frequently Asked Questions
The Info You’re After
IS CBD OIL LEGAL?
Yes, CBD oil is derived from hemp and is legal in all 50 states. The Agricultural Act of 2018, also known as The Farm Bill, empowered state departments of agriculture and educational institutions in states that have legalized hemp cultivation to grow the crop for research and pilot programs.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN “FULL SPECTRUM” AND “CBD ISOLATE”?
Full spectrum CBD contains traces of THC and all of the other cannabinoids. CBD Isolate is 99% CBD with no traces of THC or other cannabinoids.
ARE YOU AN ISO CERTIFIED LAB?
Yes we are.
DO YOU TEST FOR POTENCY, PESTICIDES, HERBICIDES, HEAVY METALS, AND RESIDUAL SOLVENTS?
Yes, we test through the most stringent and advanced 3rd party lab in Colorado.
WHAT MAKES COPE CBD DIFFERENT FROM OTHER CBD COMPANIES?
Doctor Q CBD stands out from other companies in the CBD industry because of our vertically integrated business model and our quality CBD extracts.
Doctor Q CBD is the largest high CBD industrial hemp farm in the state of Colorado. We plant tens of millions of high CBD hemp plants annually. All of our high CBD industrial hemp enters our ethanol extraction process right here on the farm, and we contract with third-party labs to conduct testing on every single batch processed.
WHAT TYPE OF EXTRACTION METHOD DO YOU USE?
We use ethanol/alcohol to extract our hemp, the most historically used method for cannabis/hemp extracts. It is a clean and cold extraction method that allows for optimal retention of terpenes and other sensitive compounds.
DOES CBD COME FROM MARIJUANA OR HEMP?
THC affects the brain by binding to naturally occurring CB-1 receptors in the central nervous system. CBD is a differently shaped molecule that binds to CB-2 receptors in cell and body tissues outside the central nervous system.
WILL CBD GET ME HIGH?
No, CBD will not get you high. THC is the molecule that binds to receptors in the brain and is the one responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana.
CBD is antagonistic to the marijuana high; it prevents THC molecules from binding to the brain’s receptors (hence the reason why it’s often used to subdue the ‘paranoia’ effects of super-potent THC strains).
HOW DO I TAKE CBD?
Most CBD medications are taken orally via oil drops that are placed under the tongue and held for 60 seconds before swallowing. Topical creams and ointments are also effective, as is smoking or vaporizing CBD-rich strains.
HOW DOES CBD WORK?
CBD functions by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. These receptors have been found in virtually every cell and tissue type in the human body (hence the seemingly endless array of CBD uses).
IS CBD NATURAL?
Yes, CBD is a 100% naturally occurring chemical compound that comes directly from the cannabis plant. It is not synthetically made.
ARE THERE MEDICAL STUDIES ON CBD?
Thousands of scientific/medical peers-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.
DO CBD TOPICALS WORK?
Many folks use CBD topicals for skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema, as well as for localized muscle soreness and joint pain resulting from arthritis-induced inflammation.
WILL CBD SHOW UP ON A DRUG TEST?
A high-quality CBD product with minimal THC is incredibly unlikely to show up on a drug test. However, low quality CBD products may contain more traces of THC than they claim, in which case it is possible for a screening to pick up on the drug.
Research has shown that people who consume 6 mg of THC per day have a 25% chance of failing a drug test. This translates to about 2,000 mg per day of CBD oil with a THC content of 0.3% or less.
HOW DO I SAFELY PURCHASE CBD ONLINE?
Make sure the company you’re buying from is reputable and that the product was made in the USA from industrial hemp with less than 0.3% THC content. While transporting marijuana across state lines (from legal to non-legal states) is against the law, transporting hemp and hemp-based products is safe. Remember, millions of people all over the US (and the globe) are using CBD products every day!
